If you can't wait for the final few episodes of "Breaking Bad" coming in August, this should help you get your fix. Stephen Doran id a 57-year-old middle school teacher of Boston, currently undergoing chemo for stage three cancer. On Tuesday a package arrive for him at the school where he works; it seemed suspicious, so an office worker called the police. When the cops got there and opened the package, the office's suspicions were confirmed: the box was filled WITH METH! But unlike Walter White, Stephen wasn't cooking the meth himself. Stephen, who btw is a former member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, is now facing SEVERAL drug trafficking charges.
Last month, Kmart put out an ad featuring the line "ship my pants," and has since been viewed 17 MILLION TIMES on YouTube! And now it's time for round two, and they have created a new ad to promote a deal where you can get cheaper gasoline if you spend $50 or more. Some would call their line of advertising "juvenile," but I, personally, call it hilarious. Lol
On Monday night, Latasha Love called the police to tell them that her son took her Pop-Tarts without asking. After the call, the police actually came out to her house and arrested her son for one count of misdemeanor larceny. The son's age hasn't been released, we only know that he's under 18. Obviously, there's something deeper going on here. Police reported that Latasha has had ongoing discipline problems with her son, and they decided to lend a helping hand. The case is going to juvenile court, and I bet her son never touches something that doesn't belong to him again...no matter how hungry he is.
34-year-old David Gonzalez recently bought an abandoned house in Elbow Lake, Minnesota for $10,100. He remodels and flips houses, and that was his plan with this home. The house had newspaper in the walls instead of proper insulation so the first thing he did was cracked into the walls to fix the problem. Amongst the newspaper in the walls, David came across the most valuable comic book OF ALL TIME!!! It was a copy of Action Comics Number One from 1938, the first appearance of Superman! In mint condition, this comic would be worth $2 million, but obviously since it had been in the walls, it was not in mint condition and it was torn with removal. The comic is still being auctioned online, however, and the bidding has already exceeded $135,000! That's over TEN TIMES what David paid for the house!
Semicolon: (n) the punctuation mark (;) used to indicate the seperation of two independent clauses in a sentence, as performed by The Lonely Island (spoiler alert, they're using the wrong punctuation mark hahaha)
This video of Waka Flocka Flame in the recording studio from 2011 is going viral online. He's laying down back up vocals in the studio, and the reason it's funny is that you can't hear the music because of his headphones! So all you hear is him yelling "BOW BOW BOW," and his name over and over again. Puh-retty ridiculous. Lol
The CDC just released a new report on public pools, and they found that 58% of the pool water they tests contained FECAL CONTAMINATION!!! In other words, when you jump into a pool there's a 58% chance you're jumping into another person's POOP!! The CDC says, "Swimmers frequently contaminate pool water when they have a feval incident in the water or when feces rinse off their bodies because they do not shower thoroughly." 2% of the pools had other types of fecal bacteria that can cause diarrhea and get you sick. 59% of pools had the bacteria that can cause rashes or ear infectinos. Good news: as long as you wash your hands after you swim and don't swallow a lot of pool water, you can avoid infections.
Last October in Australia, a man (none of the name have been released yet) wanted to get evidence of paranormal activity in his house. He set up a video camera in his kitchen. He didn't find any ghosts, but instead found something even more horrifying! He caught his 28-year-old girlfriend making out with his 16-year-old SON!!! On the tape the woman admitted to having sex with the boy twice. The affair started when she started discussing driving lessons with the boy. The case ended up in the Supreme Court of Australia where the woman pleaded guilty to having sex with a minor.
On Friday, 18-year-old Eesha Khare of Saratoga, California won $50,000 at the Intel International Sciene and Engineering Fair. She won the money for an invention she created because she was sick of her cell phone battery dying all the time. She designed and built something called a supercapicitor, which is a new kind of battery. Instead of taking hours to fully charge your cell phone, the invention can do it in 20 to 30 seconds, and it lasts 10 TIMES LONGER than current batteries!
I think a new photo trend comes out daily, and the latest is known as koala-ing. To achieve this, a person wraps their legs and arms around something, a pole or a tree branch or a statue for example, and of cuorse it looks best when they're high up in the air clinging on. So prepare for injuries. It's only a matter of time before someone has a nasty fall trying to mimic a koala.
So what is "cheating," and what is not? The answer, of course, is purely subjective, and depends on the comfort level of each person in the relationship. Still, it's always good to know what everyone else thinks. And thus the Huffington Post set out to poll 1,000 U.S. adults about what they consider to be adulterous behavior. Here are some highlights of the findings:
60% say it's cheating if you form a "deep emotional connection" with someone else.
48% would consider it cheating if their partner kissed someone else on the lips.
24% said messaging an ex on Facebook equals cheating.
24% would consider it cheating if their partner went to a strip club.
79% of respondents said sending sexy texts or photos to someone else is cheating.
Yes, you read that right — less than a quarter of people have no problem with their partners going to strip clubs, but almost 80% say it's cheating if you send someone sexy texts. And many of the people who said it's cheating to text someone don't think it's cheating if you kiss someone else on the lips.
Kai became an internet sensation when he saved a woman by smashing her attacker with a hatchet, and his fun interview with local reporters after the incident. Yesterday morning in Union County, New Jersy Kai, whose real name is Caleb Lawrence McGivilary, was issued an arrest warrent on suspicion of murder. He has been linked to the murder of a lawyer in Clark, New Jersey and he was arrested at a bus station yesterday afternoon in Philidelphia. Kai made a Facebook post a day after police found the dead body saying a stranger drugged and raped him...this might be a clue, but I'm still not making the connection.
On Tuesday, Virginia Maiden of Kennewick, Michigan woke up and discovered that her 1995 Toyota 4Runner had been stolen. She called the cops, reported it missing, and then headed to her job at McDonald's. While she was working the biggest coincidence occured, her stolen car pulled up in the drive thru. The theif, Katherine York, stole the car to go steal some clothes from the mall and then pick up lunch apparently. Virginia immediately called the cops, and Katherine was arrested for possession of a stolen vehicle. The stolen clothes were found in the backseat, but shoplifting charges are stil pending.
Around 2:00am, Lucas H. Vorsteveld was arrested near Taylor Swift's mansion in Rhode Island. Yep, he was trying to stalk her, but you'll never guess how. Lucas swam about a mile to Taylor Swift's home in hopes of meeting her. When he reached the shore, he saw Taylor's security, and quickly jumped back in the water. Police followed him, and was arrested for trespassing. I mean, all the physical endurance that must have taken, he at least deserves a consolation prize in my opinion.
When it comes to celebs and their net worth, turns out that almost NOBODY has more than former Seinfield minx, Julia Lous-Dreyfus. Julia has Oprah money, and by Oprah money, I mean SHE'S WORTH MORE THAN OPRAH!! Julia's net worth is $2.8 billion, but she's worth more than $3 billion! It's not residuals from Seinfield and The New Adventures of Old Christene either...it's all because HER FAMILY IS LOADED!! In 1850 her great-grandfather founded the Louis Dreyfus Group which they still control to this day. In addition to Oprah, Julia's worth tops that of Tyler Perry, Diddy, Bono, Madonna, Dr. Dre, WIll Smith, and Ryan Seacrest COMBINED!!!
I hate to look at a pair of newlyweds and say that their marriage is doomed...but those are the only words that come to mind when I read this story. 20-year-old Mohammed Ahmed and his new wife were in Orlando on their honeymoon. Mohammed left his wife in the hotel to secretly HIRE A PROSTITUTE! After findint one, and responding to the ad, he was busted. The ad was actually an undercover sting operation by the Polk County Sheriff's department. After he had been missing for some time, his wife had called the police department to report him missing. That's when she found out that he was actually in one of their jail cells for soliciting prostitution. At least she found out he was a creep sooner rather than later!!!
According to a report in the New York Post, rich people have secretly been hiring disabled people to escort them around Walt Disney World in Orlando. This may not make sense at first, but being escorted by someone with a disability means that they can go in the special handiacapped line and skip the long waits for rides in the other line. A company called Dream Tours Florida offers this for $130 an hour or $1040 a day, not including the price of tickets, of course. The Post has tried to contact Disney about the issue, with no response.
Geoguessr.com is a website that uses Google maps to give you a real life image from somewhere in the world as if you were standing on the sidewalk in that place, and then you have to guess where you are! You can zoom and move the camera around just like Google maps to help you figure it out. I'm playing it as I write this blog...it's that addicting.
Over the weekend, a female passenger on a flight from Los Angeles to New York decided it was the perfect time to pay her respects to Whitney Houston and decided to belt out the lyrics to "I Will Always Love You." The flight attendents asked her to stop, but she kept singing. The flight attendents TOLD her to stop, and she kept singing. So the pilot diverted the flight to make an emergency landing in Kansas City, where the woman was then arrested and escorted off the plane, still singing her heartfelt, off-key version of "I Will Always Love You." The woman was released after she blamed the incident on her diabetes. She then boarded another flight to make it the rest of the way to New York...without another performance.
A few weeks ago, police in Illinois were investigating a 64-year-old man, David Beckman, on reports that he had tried to solicit someone underage online. When they arrived at his house, they found a dead peacock. Turns out that the man had indeed owned a pet peacock, named Phyl. If this weren't weird enough, the peacock DIED when Beckman had sex with it! He also really had been searching for underage sex online, so he gets a double whammy!!! He was arrested for several charges from the ordeal, including animal abuse and indecent solicitation of a minor. I hope we've all learned something from this. Humans cannot successfully have sex with peacocks...lol
According to a new survey, guys are twice as likely as women to want to have sex with their friends. More than half of the men involved in the survey said they had a platonic friend that they wouldn't mind "getting-it-on" with while only a quarter of women say the same thing. 52% of men believe that you can still remain friends with a woman after having sex, and only 38% of women believe the same. So ladies...be careful of that girl friend that you're man's been spending an awful lot of time with...even if they've "just known each other forever."
Four-year-old Connor Sanchez of Norfolk has leukemia, and Roc Solid Foundation granted him a wish, which he though was just a day in a limo. But really, the limo was just a ploy to get Connor out of the house to give him his REAL wish, a custom made playground in his backyard. This is the 50th playground that Roc Solid has built for kids in the four years they've been operating since 2009. The creator of Roc Solid, Eric Newman, also beat cancer as a child, which pushed him to create the foundation.
Patrice Davis, a school bus driver, was sick and tired of two girls, 13 and 16, on her bus fighting. So she skipped every stiop on her route, and drove the bus to her house where she ordered all of the kids to get off the bus. The two girls then had a fistfight, and after they fought it out, she ordered everyone back on the bus. A few minutes into the ride, the girls began fighting again, so she pulled over and let them duke it out. When they finished she told the riders that "what happens on the bus, stays on the bus." She then drove them home where the mother of one of the girls reported the incident and took her to the hospital. The girl did not have any serious injuries...but she'll never think of buses the same again.
This is a student in Duncanville, Texas giving an impassioned speech after being kicked out of class for complaining that the teacher was just giving packets of worksheets instead of teaching a lesson. Do you think he had a good point or did he deserve to be kicked out of class?
There's a company in France that's raising money to manufactore scented men's underwear. Each pair has 30 microcapsules sewn in that last up to 30 washes. (Which means they'll last for years with Frenchmen.) They describe the scent as, "masculine perfume, not very strong, based on musk and pears." The company is using a European site that works like Kickstarter called My Major Company, and has already received almost double their $13,000 goal.
According to a new stufy, one of the best ways to pick up women is to carry a guitar. Researchers sent a guy to a public place to get girls' phone numbers, and when he carried a guitar case he was successful 31% of the time. When he had nothing he was only successful 14% of the time, and when he had a duffel bag he was even less successful, only getting a woman's number 9% of the time.
Your workplace could probably come up with any rule they wanted, but for the most part, business show restraint and some decency in the rules they create. Reddit.com held a discussion about the most ridiculous office rules that people have been forced to follow. Some of the highlights:
1. No moving the furniture...it violates corporate police even to slide your desk over.
2. NO mutton chop sideburns.
3. NO popcorn whether it be cooked in the microwave, or brought from somewhere else.
4. NO cell phone, or even having anything in your pocket that LOOKS like a cell phone.
5. No saying "bless you" when someone sneezes because it's too religious.
One company had the rule that every desk be left empty, except for a few select items...arranged in a specific way. WTF?
According to a study done earlier this year, 7% of men and 2% of women admitted to trying to hit animals when they see them in the road. Last week, an NBC affiliate in Oklahoma City put a rubber turtle in the road to see if people would swerve to avoid the animal. Most people lived up to expectations, and moved out of the way of the animal. Four people INTENTIONALLY drove over the turtle. One car of guys saw the turtle, stopped their car, and stole it!!! The news crew chased down the car to retrieve the turtle, and their excuse for picking it up was that they "race turtles." He told the affiliate, "It looked real. I was waiting for it to pee on me. He's not going to win any races." Clever.
Three women who disappeared a decade ago in Cleveland, OH were found alive yesterday! 27 year old Amanda Berry signaled to a neighbor for help, and he let Amanda and her five year old daughter out of the house. All three were found in a house close to where they disappeared between the years 2002 and 2004. The police arrested the man who owns the house from where they escaped, details are still spare, but the story is developing, and more information should be available within the next fwe weeks. The women: Gina DeJesus, Amanda Berry, and Michele Knight were 14, 16, and 21 respectively when they disappeared.
According to a new study determining most visited American businesses, nearly half of US consumers visited a McDonald's last month. Fast food dominates the top of the list, but McDonald's in a class of its own with nearly 50% of American consumers visiting in March. The top 10:
2. Walmart (no surprise)
4. Burger King
9. Taco Bell (definitely my number 1!!)
Just missing the top 10 were companies such as GameStop, RadioShack, and Best Buy. The Dollar Store, which would make sense to have a lot of visitors considering the economy, only ranked 18!
On Wednesday, a 14-year-old boy near Chicago was home alone...so he did what any 14-year-old would do: HE ORDERED A PROSTITUTE!!! His 22-year-old "date" arrive at the house, told him to undress, AND THEN PEPPER SPRAYED HIM!! Then she took his iPad, his piggy bank full of money, and another jar full of money. The hooker was arrested and charged with armed robbery. Pepper spray was a weapon. The boy won't face any charges for hiring the prostitute.
The town of Gloversville, New York has been ROCKED by a vicious TURF WAR between two rival ICE CREAM MEN . . . and the police have finally stepped in. (Gloversville is about 50 miles northwest of Albany.)
Sno Cone Joe is owned by 34-year-old Joshua Malatino. And he says HE was Gloversville's rightful ice cream man. Then Mr. Ding-a-Ling came to town.
After about a week, Joshua told one of the Mr. Ding-a-Ling drivers that Gloversville was HIS turf. He also called Ding-a-Ling headquarters and said, quote, "I OWN this town."
Joshua also scared away ANOTHER competitor last summer . . . but Mr. Ding-a-Ling wouldn't back down.
So Joshua and his 21-year-old girlfriend Amanda Scott began FOLLOWING Mr. Ding-a-Ling's truck, to lure away customers. Finally, police saw their truck tailgating a Mr. Ding-a-Ling truck on April 19th and stepped in to SQUASH the feud.
Joshua and Amanda were arrested and charged with stalking and harassment . . . which could land them in jail for up to three months.
Karen Finley is has an upcoming art exhibit at the New Museum in New York City, and let's just say it's "very unique." She's asking men and women to send her illicit texts and photos, which she intends to turn into works of art...I mean, hey the statue of David is naked. Why not? The images that she creats from the inappropriate photos will hang in the museum from May 23-26, and participants will be able to take home the pieces that they inspired. Those who participate will show up for private 10 minutes sessions. They will be given a phone number and then they will commence texting. Prices for the pieces will range from $200 for a work on paper to $500 for a large oil canvas. She calls her exhibit "Sext me if you can."
Nothing leads to more awkward situations in everyday life than money. CouponCabin.com just released the results of a survey asking people to name their most awkward money moment. The top 7 moments were:
1. Having a credit card declined.
2. Feeling pressured by a friend, family member, or co-worker to donate to a chairty.
3. Saying no to a panhandler. (Example: people outside of Walmart collecting money for the Salvation Army.)
4. Feeling pressured to chip in on a group gift for someone at work.
5. Talking about your salary with your co-workers.
6. Splitting a check at a restaurant with a large group of people. (And this gets more example when you're THAT PERSON who doesn't get alcohol, or dessert and you have to ask "I didn't get any drinks, so can I pay less?")
7. Figuring out gifts for make-or-break situations, like a first anniversary.
On Saturday, a 30-year-old man, Henry Gribbohm, in Epsom, New Hampshire seduced by big prizes and a sweet-talking carny hit up a traveling carnival, and ended up losing his LIFE SAVINGS trying to win a game where you throw a ball into a tub. He was playing the game trying to win an XBox Kinect...and impress the carny of course. Before he knew it, he had lost $300, but determined to win, went home and got the rest of his life savings and dumped it all into the game, never winning. He was given a $600 refund after he complained to carnival management, along with a stuffed yellow banana wearing dreadlocks and a rasta hat...which is exactly what I look for when I request a consolation prize. He complained to the police that the game was rigged, and now they're investigating. The game has been suspended from the carnival until the investigation is over.
John Stamos is doing a web show in which he reunites celebrities with the people who took their virginity. He says, "For every actor, celebrity, musician, and politician out there that we see, there's somebody at home oging, 'I was their first.' I want to hear their stories, too." Stamos was reunited with his first about thirteen years ago, and he didn't even recognize her. Their stories on how she took his virginity were vastly different. On the show, he may even reenact those magic moments with puppets, Barbie dolls or some other kind of animation...because that's not weird and awkward at all.
