And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

To Shave or Not To Shave? That Is The 9/11 Question...

When the World Trade towers came down on 9/11, a middle-school teacher from East Wenatchee, Washington made a promise he wouldn't break...
Gary Weddle, a devoted science teacher, vowed that he wouldn't shave until Osama bin Laden was captured or killed, and it's a sure bet he didn't think it would take 9 years to do it.

Four months ago, when a friend of Weddle's called and told him that Osama bin Laden had been killed, he cried for a full five minutes.  He took a razor to his face and shaved off the beard he'd been wanting to get rid of for 9 years. 
"He cut the beard and was shaving the stubble even before President Obama addressed the nation about bin Laden’s demise" - The Daily Astorian.

Well, all I can say is that I'm glad you never did the whole I won't shave till I loose more wait thing. You've lost so much weight on your own, which is good because I would have hated that nasty beard. Still love you bunches though.
