"What's going on, you guys? KidBehindACamera here!" — Michael’s intro for his YouTube vlogs
Michael Brian Green, a.k.a Pickleboy (born June 2, 1987) is one of the two main protagonists of the series, cameraman, and mastermind behind the success of The Angry Grandpa Show.
He is the son of Angry Grandpa and Tina, youngest of the four siblings, Charles, Jennifer, and Kim, and the father of Mia. He is also Bridgette West's fiance. He has a temporary alter-ego named Michelle.
1987-1988 was an outstanding year for Michael Jordan performance wise. Mj won the Slam Dunk contest, All Star MVP, All-Defensive First Team and Defensive Player of the Year. Through all this success, he was wearing the Air Jordan 3.
Peter Moore (which designed the Air Jordan I and helped on the II) was let go from Nike, as well as Bruce Kilgore. When they had left, Peter and Bruce were trying to convince Michael to leave Nike with them, good thing MJ said no.
Now Nike needed a new designer to make the Air Jordan III. So they went to world famous Tinker Hatfield. His name is known mainly for designing Air Jordan III-XV, and also making a return on the AJ XXs, but Tinker also designed some really nice Nike’s as well. Tinker and Michael worked hard, talked to each other on what were good ideas, and what could “work”. Michael wanted a lightweight shoe, with a lot of durability. So with the Air Jordan 3 they both decided to make them a Mid top, the first mid top to be seen in the Air Jordan line. On the AJ III model Tinker placed the famous jumpman logo on the back of the shoe, and adding in a “elephant print” on the toe box. Also the IIIs were the first AJ to have a visible air-sole unit.
The inspirations for the AJ III are AJ I and II, the free throw dunk, an elephant, and last, but not least Michael Jordan. Nike’s selling strategy was simple, and great, they had MJ and Mars Blackmon (Spike Lee). After watching these funny commercials you had to go out and buy yourself a pair.
In 1987-1988 when the Air Jordan 3s just released they sold for $100.00. In 1994 when Nike re-released the AJ III they retailed at 105.00, but just like the AJ I and II models, they hit sales racks. In 2001 and 2003 when the Air Jordan III released one more time, the price tag was $100.00.
Unlucky in love
After being released from prison for the murder of Claudia Zacchara (Sarah Brown in another role), Michael was troubled with nightmares and recoiled when anyone showed him affection. Michael had been raped while in prison, something he initially kept to himself. Sam McCall (Kelly Monaco), Jason’s girlfriend, helped set Michael up with her prostitute friend Abby Haver ( Andrea Bogart) to help Michael overcome his fears. What started as a friendship eventually turned into a romance, and Abby eventually got out of the business. As Abby went on to work at ELQ, Michael became a part of the legitimate side of Sonny’s business. When several of Abby’s friends were attacked, Michael worried about her safety and asked Tracy to send her to Chicago on ELQ business. Tragically while there, she was killed in an accident involving a construction crane.
Trying to move on, Michael soon met Starr Manning (Kristen Alderson). Starr and Michael developed a friendship that hit several bumps, including Starr blaming Sonny for the death of her boyfriend and daughter in a car accident. In time though Michael and Starr grew closer and friendship turned into a relationship. When she abruptly ended things and left town, Michael began to grow closer to his father AJ and started working at ELQ.
Trey was given "Number 32: Shark Drake" (which was originally Quattro's) as part of his family's plan. Ε] He played it against Reginald Kastle and gave it to him after the Duel as part of the plan. Δ]
He utilized "Number 33: Chronomaly Machu Mech" as part of his Deck Η] and was eventually given "Number 6: Chronomaly Atlandis" by Vetrix. After losing to Yuma Tsukumo, he left the two "Numbers" to him. ⎚]
When Trey returned to aide Yuma against the Barians, Yuma gave his two "Numbers" back to him to use once more ⎛] and also allowed him to keep the "Number 3: Cicada King" they won when they defeated Erazor. ⎜] "Cicada King" would turn out to be a fake though and it was destroyed when this was revealed. ⎫]
Trey would lose his two remaining "Numbers" to Mizar, alongside the upgraded form of "Atlandis", "Number C6: Chronomaly Chaos Atlandis". ⎯]
Trey plays a "Chronomaly" Deck Γ] focused on swarming the field with Monster Cards to quickly Xyz Summon monsters with a variety of Ranks. He also uses a range of cards which increase the ATK of his Monster Cards such as "Chronomaly Pyramid Eye Tablet" and "Chronomaly Ley Line Power". Trey mainly focuses on Xyz Summoning "Number 33: Chronomaly Machu Mech" which he then uses in combination with cards such as "Chronomlay Cabrera Trebuchet" to inflict large amounts of damage to the opponent. In addition, his Deck includes "Number" support such as "Number Wall", "Number Lifter" and "Number 6: Chronomaly Atlandis", also later gaining access to "Number C6: Chronomaly Atlandis".
At his death, which occurred soon afterward, Michael thus left an intact empire to his son Andronicus II. But it cannot be denied that his policy of using ecclesiastical union to stave off Charles’s attack on his capital and the deep opposition that policy provoked among the Byzantine population established a fateful precedent for later Byzantine history. Moreover, by focusing his attention too exclusively on Europe, his policy helped lead to Ottoman occupation of all of Asia Minor and ultimately to the capture of Constantinople itself. Nevertheless, Michael’s positive accomplishments cannot be overlooked. He gave Byzantium two centuries more of life, began rebuilding the capital, and reestablished the University of Constantinople. His sponsorship of a general revival of learning led to the important Byzantine “Renaissance” in the 14th and 15th centuries.
Article III and the History of Nationwide Injunctions: A Response to Professor Sohoni
In a recent article in the Harvard Law Review entitled, “The Lost History of the ‘Universal’ Injunction,” Professor Mila Sohoni contends that Article III permits federal courts to issue nationwide injunctions because they have issued such orders since the early 1900s. She offers 15 main examples of federal cases from between 1894 and 1943 in which she contends that the court issued nationwide injunctions. These historical precedents, she argues, legitimize the continued constitutionality of nationwide injunctions today.
This Essay demonstrates that the Article III objection to nationwide injunctions survives Professor Sohoni's critique for three main reasons. First, the only case that "Lost History" discusses in which the Supreme Court expressly addressed the validity of nationwide injunctions, Perkins v. Lukens Steel Co., largely rejected them. Perkins' express consideration of such orders carries far greater weight than inferences drawn from a handful of other cases, many from lower courts, that do not consider potential Article III concerns.
Second, most of the orders on which "Lost History" focuses are not the type of nationwide injunctions at the heart of most modern debates over the issue. The term "nationwide injunction" is ambiguous, encompassing up to five fundamentally different type of orders that each raise distinct jurisdictional, rule-based, fairness-related, prudential, and structural concerns. The ongoing controversy concerning so-called nationwide injunctions involves a type of order that I call a "defendant-oriented injunction." A defendant-oriented injunction prohibits a governmental defendant from enforcing a challenged legal provision against anyone, anywhere in the nation, including third-party non-litigants in other jurisdictions.
Most of the orders that "Lost History" cites are not defendant-oriented injunctions. Instead, they have materially different characteristics and are properly classified as completely distinct types of nationwide injunctions. These orders do not establish that federal courts have a lengthy history of issuing broad nationwide or statewide defendant-oriented injunctions aimed at enforcing the rights of third-party non-litigants.
Finally, even treating all 15 orders as relevant examples, they prove very little. In most cases, the scope of the order was neither contested by the parties nor addressed by the Supreme Court. To the contrary, in several cases, the Government implicitly or explicitly consented to the requested relief on an interim basis, alleviating the need for the Court to consider their propriety. Perhaps more importantly for the examples involving constitutional challenges to state laws, most federal districts in the period had only one or two district judges, who adjudicated such matters as part of three-judge trial-court panels. Whether a district court granted a statewide defendant-oriented injunction was usually irrelevant as a practical matter, since any future constitutional challenges to that state law were virtually certain to be heard by the same judge. Thus, even if such orders were technically improper, it is entirely understandable under the circumstances that defendants would not have wasted time challenging them.
In short, the history of nationwide injunctions does little to establish the constitutionality of defendant-oriented injunctions. Particularly in light of Article III precedent as it has evolved over the decades since, the Article III objection to such orders remains compelling.

The Photographs That Prevented World War III
On October 23, 1962, a U.S. Navy commander named William B. Ecker took off from Key West at midday in an RF-8 Crusader jet equipped with five reconnaissance cameras. Accompanied by a wingman, Lt. Bruce Wilhelmy, he headed toward a mountainous region of western Cuba where Soviet troops were building a facility for medium-range missiles aimed directly at the United States. A U-2 spy plane, flying as high as 70,000 feet, had already taken grainy photographs that enabled experts to find the telltale presence of Soviet missiles on the island. But if President John F. Kennedy was going to make the case that the weapons were a menace to the entire world, he would need better pictures.
From This Story
Video: Historic Newsreel Footage of the Cuban Missile Crisis
CIA analysts at a secret facility used this light table to study the photographs. (Matthew Niederhauser / Institute) Flying over Cuba at the height of the standoff, U.S. pilots (shown: an Air ForceRF-101 jet) gathered intelligence that helped Kennedy face down Khrushchev. (Michael Dobbs) Low-altitude images, previously unpublished, reveal gaps in U.S. intelligence. Analysts failed to detect tactical nuclear warheads at a bunker near Managua. (Michael Dobbs) Bejucal went unidentified as a storage site for missile warheads. The author discovered that fact after talking to former Soviet officers and studying the film. One telltale sign: the vans parked outside. (Michael Dobbs)
Swooping over the target at a mere 1,000 feet, Ecker turned on his cameras, which shot roughly four frames a second, or one frame for every 70 yards he traveled. Banking away from the site, the pilots returned to Florida, landing at the naval air station in Jacksonville. The film was flown to Andrews Air Force Base outside Washington, D.C. and driven by armed CIA couriers to the National Photographic Interpretation Center, a secret facility occupying an upper floor of a Ford dealership in a derelict block at Fifth and K streets in Northwest Washington. Half a dozen analysts pored over some 3,000 feet of newly developed film overnight.
At 10 o’clock the following morning, CIA analyst Art Lundahl showed Kennedy stunningly detailed photographs that would make it crystal clear that Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev had broken his promise not to deploy offensive weapons in Cuba. As the Cuban missile crisis reached its peak over the next few days, low-flying Navy and Air Force pilots conducted more than 100 missions over the island in Operation Blue Moon. While Kennedy and Khrushchev engaged in a war of nerves that brought the world the closest it has ever come to a nuclear exchange, the president knew little about his counterpart’s intentions—messages between Moscow and Washington could take half a day to deliver. The Blue Moon pictures provided the most timely and authoritative intelligence on Soviet military capabilities in Cuba, during and immediately after the crisis. They showed that the missiles were not yet ready to fire, making Kennedy confident that he still had time to negotiate with Khrushchev.
In the 50 years since the standoff, the U.S. government has published only a handful of low-altitude photographs of Soviet missile sites—a small fraction of the period’s total intelligence haul.
When I was researching my 2008 book on the crisis, One Minute to Midnight, I came across stacks of declassified American intelligence reports based on the Blue Moon photographs. I assumed that the raw footage was locked away in the vaults of the CIA until I received a tip from a retired photo interpreter named Dino Brugioni. A member of the team that prepared the photo boards for Kennedy, Brugioni told me that thousands of cans of negatives had been transferred to the National Archives, making them available for public inspection—at least in theory.
That tip launched me on a chase that led to a National Archives refrigerated storage room in Lenexa, Kansas, nicknamed “the Ice Cube,” the final resting place for hundreds of thousands of cans of overhead imagery taken during and after the missile crisis. To my surprise, no one had ever requested the Blue Moon material. Researchers are not permitted at the Ice Cube, but they may order ten cans of film at a time, which are then air-freighted to the National Archives facility in College Park, Maryland. There is just one catch: The cans are numbered in a seemingly haphazard fashion, and the CIA finding aid for the materials is still classified. Without it, requesting cans of Blue Moon film seemed like a hopelessly long shot.
I desperately needed the help of the researcher’s old friend, luck, and I got it when I stumbled across the identification number of one of the missile-crisis cans in a document I found in the Archives. Beginning with that number, I ordered random samples of cans until I had identified the shelves where the Blue Moon material was generally located. In all, I examined nearly 200 cans of film containing several thousand photographs.
The film brings home the dangers and difficulties the pilots faced. Working long before the invention of automated GPS systems, they navigated primarily with maps and compasses and used landmarks like bridges and railroads to find their targets. Flying over the treetops at 550 miles per hour, they had to operate a battery of cumbersome cameras while keeping an eye out for construction sites, military vehicles or other “suspicious activity.” To take useful pictures, they had to keep their platforms steady and level for the all-important few seconds they were over the target. The risk of mechanical failure or getting shot down was more or less continuous from the moment they entered enemy territory.
Each reel seats the viewer in the cockpit: Early frames typically show the ground crews at the naval air station on Key West checking out the cameras and planes. Surf splashes up against the Crusaders’ fuselages as they fly low across the Straits of Florida and cross the beaches of northern Cuba before heading over the island’s mountains. Plazas and baseball diamonds suddenly give way to missile sites and military airfields. In one series of images, the landscape goes suddenly haywire: The pilot has yanked his joystick to avoid anti-aircraft fire. As I reeled through the 6-by-6-inch negatives on a light table similar to the one the CIA’s photo interpreters used, I found myself holding my breath until the pilot escaped back over the mountains to the open sea.
In addition to bringing the viewer back into the moment, the photographs offer insights into the gaps in American intelligence-gathering—instances in which the CIA misinterpreted or simply ignored information it collected. One example is the photograph of a munitions bunker near the town of Managua, south of Havana.
Charlie Chill LSD Incident
On the 29th of June 2017, while high on LSD and intoxicated with alcohol, Charlie uploaded several porn videos to his YouTube channel and then destroyed the pool house. He was found running around the yard naked by Michael, who called the police. Charlie was taken to hospital due to severely burning his finger but later released. He returned to the house, where he allegedly punched Bridgette twice and threatened Michael with a shard of glass from a mirror he smashed earlier. He was arrested, and Michael expressed a desire to press any charges he could. Michael has also stated that he and Charlie are no longer brothers and he never wants to see or hear from him again, saying "If I die of a heart attack I don't want you at my funeral - I mean that wholeheartedly."
Despite this, Michael still felt bad for Charlie. Michael and Bridgette paid for a hotel for Charlie to stay in for a week, with the hopes of him getting the help he needs. However, Charlie repaid them by posting accusations about the family, such as bestiality, incest and child molestation. Michael was disgusted and decided not to pay for his hotel room for the next week. It was then revealed by Kim and Jennifer that Charlie had allegedly raped them when they were children. Michael was horrified and stated that Charlie was disowned from the family for good. Angry Grandpa, who previously had expressed sadness at Charlie's actions and hope he could change, also now refused to acknowledge him as Michael's brother.
AGP became heavily depressed following Kim and Jennifer's revelations and didn't eat for a week. As a result, he was admitted to hospital on 4 July, where it was discovered he has kidney stones, a small hernia, and cirrhosis on his liver. Michael completely blames Charlie for this. Due to the stress it causes Grandpa, Michael has finally stated that he will not be mentioning Charlie's name in any videos ever again as well as anyone else featured in the videos to never mention the name "Charlie" around him or in his household.
Blue-eyed and blond
Richard's maternal-line - or mitochondrial - DNA was matched to two living relatives of his eldest sister Anne of York. Michael Ibsen and Wendy Duldig are 14th cousins and both carry the same extremely rare genetic lineage as the body in the car park.
Richard III was defeated in battle by Henry Tudor, marking the end of the Plantagenet dynasty and the beginning of Tudor rule, which lasted until Queen Elizabeth I died childless in 1603.
Richard's battered body was subsequently buried in Greyfriars. As the Leicester team uncovered the male skeleton, the curvature in its spine became obvious. The condition would have caused one of the man's shoulders to be higher than the other, just as a contemporary of Richard described.
Genes involved in hair and eye colour were also tested. The results suggest Richard III had blue eyes, matching one of the earliest known paintings of the king. However, the hair colour analysis gave a 77% probability that the individual was blond, which does not match the depiction.
But the researchers say the test is most closely correlated with childhood hair, and in some blond children, hair darkens during adolescence.
The researchers took all the information linking the body to Richard III and carried out a statistical test known as Bayesian analysis to determine the probability that the body was indeed his - or not. Despite the absence of a male-line genetic match, the results came back with a 99.999% probability that the body was that of the Plantagenet king.
Commenting on the study, Prof Martin Richards, a population geneticist at the University of Huddersfield, told BBC News: "The work seems to have been done with great care and looks very convincing to me."
He said Richard III's maternal DNA type was very rare, and carried an additional genetic variant not previously seen before that "seems to be unique amongst a database that includes several thousand Europeans".
"So I agree that their assessment of the match probability is very conservative and it's very likely to be him," Prof Richards said.
He added that, given the apparent certainty of the body's identity, "the lack of any match for the Y-chromosome lineage is quite curious and suggests an intriguing new avenue for dynastic DNA studies".
Dr Ross Barnett, a specialist in ancient DNA at the University of Copenhagen, agreed that the work was "interesting and thorough".
Dr Barnett had previously raised questions over a preliminary analysis of the maternal-line DNA. But he told BBC News: "Now the paper is here and available for scrutiny, I have no further complaints. The team are excellent and I would expect the analysis to be robust."
