On the Plus Side Reporting Crimes Has Never Been Easier

Reporting Crimes has never been easier. For a while now, various areas have tested 911 systems to allow texting (for a couple of years at least). Initially I thought this will be great! Because in movies people hiding in closets from bad guys are always busted attempting to make life saving 911 phone calls because … Continue reading

“Father Bites Off Son’s Penis.” Let me repeat that, A FATHER BIT OFF HIS SON’S PENIS!!!!!!! The Shanghai Daily recently reported a story of a 6-year-old boy, who while walking naked down the street with his father and sister, after refusing to bite his dad’s penis, was subjected to his father ripping off his.

Cocktails and Base Jumping (Or Most Elaborate Way to Dine and Ditch Ever!!)

We all can agree that drinking then driving is a bad idea. Maybe it’s just me, but base jumping after cocktails doesn’t sound particularly safe either. A group of Aussie thrill seekers decided to go ahead and risk it—taking ditching and diving to a whole new level! Four men, unsuspectingly enough, dressed in business suits … Continue reading

In Case You Hadn’t Heard About the Bird Flying Man

Remember these lyrics: If I can see it, then I can do it If I just believe it, there’s nothing to it [Chorus:] I believe I can fly I believe I can touch the sky I think about it every night and day Spread my wings and fly away I believe I can soar I … Continue reading

She’s in the Mud Talking about Kony 2012? I Don’t Get It

She did not just quote Mary Poppins?! Charlie Sheen’s Porn Star Ex Bree Olson maybe honestly thought this would be helpful: splicing together images that represent the awful effects of Joseph Kony’s reign, with videos of her withering around in a bikini on the beach, and in the mud, would be helpful in getting information … Continue reading

Melvin Says “He is a Mobile Hot Spot” (He as in Himself??)

Allow me to take a crack at explaining what this sentence, “I’m Melvin, a 4G hotspot” on the T-shirt of Melvin Hughes, of Austin, TX means. And why he’s suggesting that you, “SMS HH Melvin to 25827 for access.” Last week CNNMoney.com caught my attention with their article entitled, “Turning the Homeless Into 4G Hotspots … Continue reading

Sofa King in “Sofa King” Trouble With Slogan

A furniture store has recently had their advertising slogan blacklisted after claiming its prices were ‘Sofa King Low’. Is the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) slow? Have they been completely unaware that this has been their tagline for nine years?! There was a bit of criticism in 2004 when the ad were placed in newspapers. But … Continue reading

You Really Thought That Celebrity Wrote That Cookbook?

Hate to burst your bubble. “A New York Times food reporter has revealed the surprising truth behind the bestselling celebrity chef-authored recipe books…ghostwriter of nine cookbooks, Julia Moskin, claims that often the recipes are conceived by a team of assistants and sometimes the famous foodies don’t even read the final product.” umm…duh. I could have … Continue reading

Would Rather Die Than Remain Married to Her Rapist

(OMG) Last year parents in Morocco filed charges against their daughter’s rapist. Recently a judge in the northern city of Tangier decided that (forcibly) marrying the young woman to her rapist would “resolve” the damage of sexual violation. “Moroccan penal code exempts a rapist from punishment if he agrees to marry his victim.” Devastated and … Continue reading
