Kind of an old video but whatever. How did she ever have the audacity to say she hates her boobs? And I know she’s since back peddled on her statement but still. Those things are a gift from above. Have a great weekend everybody!

So that was a little too close for my liking. A few feet difference and those two trucks explode into each other for a ridiculous head on collision with truck parts flying every which way and multiple fatalities. Luckily that didn’t happen. Although I’ve long thought that semi-trucks are overdue for having their own highway to drive on. Goods would get delivered faster, that’s for sure. But more importantly that would mean no more semi-trucks on the highways I drive on. You can add semi trucks to the every-growing list of things that scare me. We’re not talking full fledged fear but they make me uneasy when I’m driving next to them. If you really think about it semi trucks are nothing more than missiles on wheels. You could say the same thing about cars I suppose but semi trucks are way bigger than cars (glad we cleared that up). All I’m saying is would it be so hard to take all of the existing highways and just make a duplicate set of roads that are made specifically for semi-trucks? Exactly.
PS- Despite my uneasiness around semis I still do the thing where you pretend you’re pulling on the horn so the truck driver will blow the horn. I do it every time. After all I’m not a monster.
Teacher Suspended For Showing A Picture Of His Daughter Wearing A Game Of Thrones Shirt To Colleagues That Was Seen As Threatening
North Jersey- It began Jan. 12 when Francis Schmidt, an art and 3-D animation professor, shared a photograph on Google+ with his social media contacts: It was his 7-year-old daughter Sophia in a yoga pose wearing a T-shirt that read, “I will take what is mine with fire & blood.” One of those contacts was a dean at the college. The next day, Schmidt said, he was called before college officials, who questioned him as to whether the photo represented a threat against the dean. As “Game of Thrones” fans will tell you, the quote comes from a character named Daenerys Targaryen (played by Emilia Clarke) who uttered that line during the second season of the show, which is based on the writing of Bayonne-born fantasy writer George R.R. Martin. Schmidt said the Human Resources and security officials who interviewed him seemed unfamiliar with the show, so he searched for the quote on Google and came up with 30.8 million hits. Schmidt said he asked the officials why they thought the slogan was threatening, and one said “when you see the word fire, then someone shows up with an AK-47 here shooting everybody,” he said.
Fuuuuuuck these people. Classic pussification here. The people who suspended this teacher need to be fed to Khaleesi’s dragons ASAP. They’re clearly not serving any real purpose in their current jobs. How thickheaded do you have to to suspend somebody for showing you a picture of their 7 year old daughter wearing a shirt about a TV show?
A couple other things:
1. The people who freaked out about the shirt that a 7 year old girl was wearing clearly don’t watch GOT because if they did they would’ve recognized the quote. And if you don’t watch GOT you’re a certified moron. Plain and simple. How is anybody not watching this show? That should’ve been the first red flag in this whole ordeal. As soon as it was uncovered that these school officials aren’t sitting in front of their TV’s on Sunday nights watching the best show around they should’ve been fired. No questions asked. I mean did you see last week’s episode? Pure awesome.
2. Read the quote that I bolded in the story. Now read it again. Do you feel lightheaded? Do you feel like you have a massive head injury after reading that? I know I do. Talk about jumping to conclusions. If when you see the word “fire” you automatically think of someone showing up with an AK-47 and shooting everybody then you need to be admitted to a mental hospital. It’s precisely people like that who make stories like this possible.
3. I want that shirt. Badass quote. Badass shirt. Done and done. Where do I get it?
PS- Here’s a NSFW topless photo of Margaery Tyrell to remind us all that the world isn’t a completely terrible place. Click here.
ABC News- Conception has gone social. “Well it looks like several of us are in our tww [two-week wait] and I thought it might be cool if we did a pee party!” one woman wrote on a BabyCenter.com message board titled, “Soooo . . . you wanna have a pee party?” Pee parties — also known as POAS, or Pee on a Stick Parties — are the latest way women are taking what was once a very private moment very public. Like the mom who live-tweeted the birth of her child, or the couples who find out the gender of their baby alongside all their family and friends, what used to be a closely guarded secret until after the first trimester is now being shared online within minutes of seeing one line or two. And it’s not just a few women who feel the urge to pee on a stick for at-home fertility testing at the same moment, or at least on the same day, as their online friends. The Soooo … you want to have a pee party thread is just one of many, most broken out by month. Each thread has dozens of responses from other women who wish to have a pee party.
Well mark today down in your calendars. Friday April 18th, 2014. A historic day. A day that will forever live in infamy. A day people will look back on thousands of years from now, check the On This Day In History section in their space newspaper (ya know, because the future) and say, “Yep, that’s the day it happened. That’s the day everything fell apart.” What’s the “it’ we’re referring to? I’m glad you asked. Today is the day social media officially found it’s limit. The day we took it too far. We’ve gotten to the point where women are deciding to contact each other, tell one another when they’re going to pee on stick to check if they’re pregnant and then thinking it’s a good idea that they should all do it at the same time and report back with their findings. They’re starting threads and blogs. They’re tweeting at each other. This is actually happening. Maybe I’m overreacting but I don’t think I am. It just feels like some sort of line has been crossed here. Looking back, we all share part of the blame. All of the tweeting and sharing and blogging and dick pics. Everybody feels the need to share every aspect of their lives now. And at some point during that process a woman looked at another woman and said “Wouldn’t it be cool to find out if we’re pregnant at the same time?” and they broke the whole fucking system. It started with shitty Facebook statuses about how much you hate your boss or how you just got done at the gym. That led to tweets about more nothingness. And then boom. Pee parties. We’ve been heading down this hellacious and disturbing road for awhile now. It was only a matter of time. I was just hoping I’d be dead when it happened. I don’t know where we go from here. I really don’t.
So I woke up this morning, put on my grey blogging hoodie, got a cup of coffee, grabbed my lap top and sat down. Normal stuff. Was in a pretty good mood other than the normal, ya know, struggles of being alive. Flipped on the TV. And BAM. This was the first thing on. The very first thing. The incredibly emotional scene between Will and his deadbeat father. We’re talking the first words I heard from another human being today were Will saying “How come he don’t want me, man?”. Probably the saddest words uttered on a TV show and possibly in any situation ever. And because I hate myself I immediately went to YouTbe to watch the whole scene. It’s just as great as it is sad. I’ve watched it about 10 times already. I go from wanting to leap through the screen and beat up Will’s dad to immediately turning into a puddle of emotion in matter of seconds when Phil hugs Will and knocks off his hat. Tough way to start off my morning. Emotional roller coaster. Thanks to TBS for throwing dust and onion haymakers at me from the jump. They shouldn’t be allowed to show that episode before noon. Is it weird that I’m blogging about this when the scene happened 20 years ago? Maybe. I don’t care. It hit me like a ton of bricks this morning and I needed to share because that’s how I feel things now.
So the question is, is this the saddest scene in the history of television? Without thinking about it too much I’m gonna say 100% yes. I dare you to find a sadder one.
Have You Seen This Shackled Inmate Who Somehow Escaped Police Custody Last Night And Is Now The Subject Of A Massive Iowa Search?
URBANDALE, Iowa —Police are continuing to search for an escaped inmate. Kenny Bevard was last seen at 2110 Guthrie Ave, in Des Moines near the Kum & Go. Police put out an alert Thursday that Bevard was spotted there at 11:45 p.m. Officials said he may be traveling with another man and woman. Dallas County was transporting Bevard, 37 miles to Dallas County Thursday when he escaped near the Menards store at 12000 Hickman Road in Clive and stole a van at the Love’s truck stop. The van was found in the area of 73rd Street and Hickman Road in Urbandale, just north of Windsor Heights. A Code Red alert was issued to people in the neighborhood about 5:40 p.m. Bevard is described as being white, 6 foot 1 inches, bald, with tattoos on his arms. He is wearing a white and green jumpsuit and may possibly have a black sweatshirt. “We ask people to take great care,” said Clive Police Chief Michael Venema. “Make sure your house is locked and report suspicious activity to your local police department. We don’t know what city he may be in at this point.” Bevard is considered dangerous, police said in the Code Red alert. Anyone who sees him should call 911.
So this is the big story of the day in this great state. Some inmate who was handcuffed and shackled just slinking away from police during a routine transit, causing mass hysteria everywhere and prompting a massive search. He’s still at large and police have zero clue where he is. They say he might’ve been seen at a Kum & Go but in my experience, every person at every Kum & Go looks exactly like that mug shot of Kenny so it really could’ve been anybody. I wish there was video of stuff like this because I have no idea how it happened and I want to know. Like the girl earlier this week who managed to pull down her pants and take a piss in a Burger King parking lot while handcuffed. As much as I don’t want to see video of that, I 100% want to see video of that so I know how she did it. Nobody has been able to give me a good explanation on how that happened. Same goes for this guy. He’s being transported by a bunch of cops. Their one job is to take this human being from one place and put him in another. That’s it. And whoops. Damn it. He got away. Makes zero sense.
PS- I just thought of something that’ll prevent stuff like this from happening (ya know, other than the shackles and handcuffs, police cars and police officers that I guess aren’t working). Police stations need to have a Stare Guy on the pay roll. What’s a Stare Guy? It’s a guy whose sole job is to stare at the inmate during transit. Nothing else. Just sit there and stare. If the inmate tries to make a run for it, Stare Guy has the authority to shoot the guy in the knee. If the inmate doesn’t try to run, Stare Guy continues to stare in case the inmate tries to run. You’re welcome, police stations everywhere. I just cut down escaping inmates by 100%.
