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 - - - - - - - - - - -

The Woes of Being a Bad Parent - Lioness Wants to Eat Human Baby for a Snack

I'm stuck on this one, I'm not sure if this constitutes as bad parenting, but it's something I know I wouldn't be doing; Regardless if there were a thick glass between my child, and a 400 pound lion.  

In my third issue of "The Woes of Being a Bad Parent," a couple takes their baby son to the local zoo, where they seem to be taking joy in the fact their baby is terrified of the creature before him.  The parents continue to place their baby in front of the lioness as the lion "literally" tries to claw her way through the glass, and opens her mouth for the delicious human snack before her.

Some of the comments on the parent's You Tube page are getting rather nasty.
lol whos the dumbass that said its trying to eat the baby
it was just playing with the baby.
they wont kill him or her. they know its an innocent baby
lions are smarter than us hahh
if you look at lion face you can see that its really calm and playful
Do you realize how powerful a Lionesses paws are? It would have broken every bone in the child's body then swallowed it whole.
Not it was trying to eat the baby. Lions and Lionesses always go for small children and young animals, stop trying to make it out to be a pet. It's natural for a Lion/Lioness to behave this way, they are not cuddly or friendly animals, no matter how much you want them to be.

OMG Hilarious! - New Baby

Please heed these warnings...
I suggest you not shake your baby up and down, nor to drop it to see if it's a bouncing baby boy or girl.

Masturbation: Facts and Statistics

Truth is... everybody does it, or has done it.  It's a proven fact.  But seeing it in the context of a chart is quite fascinating.  Especially when an astonishing 41% of people have been caught doing it, and 797,151 Americans are actually doing it as you read this post.

Master Chef: Season 2 - Top 18 Chosen

Update 7:35 AM:  An episode of Master Chef aired last night, and two more were eliminated.  You can find out here, or wait for my review.

Last night Ryan and I finally had the chance to catch up on Master Chef.  We were behind one episode, but have finally caught up.  Last week the top 18 amateur cooks in America were revealed, and will be attempting to win 250,000 in cash, and a cookbook deal.
Ryan and I started watching Master Chef last summer when the first season premiered, and we really enjoyed it.  I worked for several restaurants as an assistant head cook, baker, and a line cook, over a period of 7 years before I got into the healthcare field, so I'm familiar with most of the foods, and techniques the cooks use while performing their challenges.
If you've never watched the show, the last 3 weeks you have missed Gordon Ramsay from "Hell's Kitchen," Joe Bastianich (restaurant and vineyard owner,) and chef Graham Elliot, whittle through 100 amateur cooks to get their top 18.   

This season, the amount of contestants were pushed up to 38, with each contestant having to cook their signature dish, and present it to the hosts.  If 2 out of the 3 hosts liked their dish, they would receive a master chef apron, and move forward to the next round.  In the following episodes, the chosen few went from 38 to 24, and by doing this, they were given the challenge of properly coring, and slicing apples. Afterwards, the 24 remaining contestants then moved on to the chicken test, which gave them an hour to prepare any type of chicken dish they wanted.
"This is America's most popular meat.  "If you can not cook the most amazing chicken dish, there is no way on Earth you're ever going to call yourself a master chef," Ramsay said.
"The chicken should be the headline act, but make use of the supporting cast of ingredients [in the pantry]," Bastianich explained.
"We have everything you can think of, from infused oils, spices, herbs, vegetables [and more]," Bowles added.
After tasting the resulting dishes, the judges then eliminated six more finalists: Seby Joseph, an 18-year-old student from McAllen, TX; Albert Necaise, a 51-year-old truck driver from Kiln, MS; Kyle Manning, a catering account manager from Maysfield Heights, OH; Joey Stasolla, a 27-year-old business owner from Colorado Springs, CO; Rhonda Sweet, a 46-year-old produce company owner from Claremont, FL; and Aaron Thomas, a 22-year-old student from Jackson, MS.

The eliminations left 18 home cooks to compete in the competition, all listed after the jump...
