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 - - - - - - - - - - -

America's Most Feared Spider

The Recluse Spider.  

OMG, forget Lions, Tigers and Bears - this little bitch will kill you.  I'm not lying, it will.  This little brown spider has been know to paralyze and cause the skin to die.  I have a couple of friends who have been bitten by one of these, and they went through horrendous weeks of pain and torture.  They eventually recovered with treatment and surgery, but the adverse events are what sound problematic.  Along with their physical pain, they developed arachnophobia.
According to recent research, the  recluse spider may be making a migration to the United States in large numbers, because climate change is threatening their existence.  But little do people know these spiders already occupy most of the country.
"They tend to live under bark or logs in dry areas or underneath hanging rocks. But humans also create a good habitat for them in cellars, attics and garages," according to Rick Vetter, a research associate at the University of California, Riverside. Their venom contains a toxin that causes skin to die, resulting in what are known as necrotic lesions. In about 90 percent of cases, the bite of a brown recluse has virtually no effect. The other 10 percent cause severe symptoms with potentially life-threatening complications. There are no solid statistics available, but Vetter estimates that one or two bite-induced deaths occur each year, typically in small children.

Ever Have A Kidney Stone?

If only having a kidney stone were as fun as the picture below depicts it to be. Granted the picture provided by www.hiddendingbat.co.uk is to help kids understand the concept behind having a kidney stone or stones.  I've never had one, and hope I never will.

I've had friends and family describe it as the most painful thing you can experience as a man.  Women have even said, the pain is far worse than having baby - they would know.

Denunciation Quoted

"He could denounce the Democratic party, run on a Republican ticket come 2012, put Sarah Palin as his VP nominee, promise to uphold an anti-gay, anti-abortion, anti-environmental, anti-immigration, pro-gun, pro-limited government, pro-church and state, pro-ultra conservative stance on all issues and obtain plastic surgery skin grafts to make himself more....white....and they still won't adore him."

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 13 - The Ultimate Dog Tease

My friend Debbie at work showed me this video on her cell phone the other day, and I couldn't keep from laughing - it was too darn cute.  Whether or not you're a pet owner, you'll definitely get a kick out of this.

Abercrombie & Fitch Opens French Store With Over 100 Hot Men

What is Abercrombie & Fitch well  known for?

Ummmm..... I don't know - selling great clothes?  

Um No!

Selling sex? 

Absolutely!  I mean you can visit their website, and quickly figure it out.

And they know how well it works too.  Why else would they be opening their first Abercrombie & Fitch store in Paris with 101 shirtless models?  They've made a fortune exploiting hot boys and their muscular bodies all over America; this time it's no different. 

Promoting their grand opening, the company paraded their soft-core porn to the people of France, and I'm loving every second of it!
