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 - - - - - - - - - - -

War of the Roses - Stephanie & Will

Today's War of the Roses was hilarious, but ohhhh so good.  If you have never listened to this segment, I highly recommend it.  It's been one of my favorite morning shows since I started listening to Roula & Ryan 7 years ago.

I suggest you read up on my first issue, here - I wrote a detailed description on how "Roses" actually works.

In this morning's call, Roula took on the fictional role of Pam from Plants and Flowers, Inc.

Today's war was especially funny because the caller, Stephanie, mentioned she had come across a picture her friend Jennifer posted online.  It was a picture of her best friend Anna and Stephanie's boyfriend, Will.  

Curious as to why Stephanie would want to play a ruse on her boyfriend when all she saw was a picture, Roula & Ryan asked her to email it to them so they could judge for themselves.  Due to the legal ramifications, Roula & Ryan are not allowed to show actual photos of the caller or the accused, so Ryan took it upon himself to do an artist's rendition, and omg it was all I could do to keep from laughing.
Stephanie states that her boyfriend of 2 years has been cheating on her with her friend of 6 years, Anna.  She says that two weeks ago she took a trip to Austin, TX to visit her family while her boyfriend stayed behind to attend a pre-arranged pool party her friend Jennifer was hosting.  Well, the weekend was over, and her friend Jennifer posted pictures from her party online.  In one of the pictures she spotted her boyfriend in the background with her friend Anna, cuddling and gazing into each other's eyes.  Stephanie also says that out of all her friends, Anna is the one who is the prettiest and funniest of the group, but also the most flirtatious and most "loose" of her girlfriends. LOL.

Over the past several days, Will has been kind of cold, always on the computer, and Stephanie doesn't know what to make of it. She truly believes he's cheating on her with Anna and figured doing the "Roses" was the only way she could make herself confront him.

After looking at the picture, Roula & Ryan are convinced Will has some 'splaining to do.  After sharing their thoughts they explain the rules of the "War" to Stephanie and ask her again if she really wants to go through with this, because regardless of the outcome, her boyfriend will learn why he was tricked on a radio station.

So how does the battle end?  Does Will send Stephanie flowers?  Or is there another woman?

the war rages on....

Isn't This The Truth? Birthdays

Remember the times we used to have huge birthday parties and get lots of presents? I know I did;  I remember having these huge birthday parties when we would go visit grandma, and all my cousins would come over. And I had lots of cousins! 

Gone are those days. Today it's all about how many notifications we get.... Isn't this the truth?

Our Future Is In Their Hands - Take 4

We've been put through test after test our entire lives, yet when these kids can't figure out the difference between 2 separate crackers and 1 cracker broken in two pieces, these kids are unintelligent.  At least this is what most YouTube comments are indicating.  I, personally don't think this makes them stupid or ignorant.   We all said stupid things when we were kids - WE WERE KIDS!

Then again... our future is in their hands...

You Tube Comments:
  • Good, so we can continue to pay women less as long as we spread the money out a little bit.
  • This is an example of basic developmental milestones. Every single person commenting on and watching this video has gone through the same process and at one point would have had the same answers. It's not a question of intelligence. What is a question of intelligence is how there are so many people here who do not understand this basic concept.

Are People Really This Stupid?

Imagine lying on a couch on your 17th birthday after a full day of partying and celebration.....

Now imagine yourself a few hours later running through the house on fire, literally.

It probably wouldn't be a pretty picture, right?  Well... Matt-Dillon Shannon of New Zealand begs to differ.   He thought it would be a wonderful gift idea to douse his friend with gasoline and set him on fire.  That's right, he allegedly poured gasoline over his friend and set him aflame.  Of course this is his story...
"We were just sitting in the lounge and all of a sudden somebody's running through on fire".

"I didn't see it happen, he was in my bedroom and came running into the lounge," [Shannon] told the newspaper.

The partygoers panicked and tried to put out the fire, which had flames jumping above Hayden's shoulders, catching the bottom of his hair, he said.
Shannon's friend, Hayden Calder, left the house with serious burns to his back neck and spent a week in a local hospital recovering from his injuries. Well no shit!  Are people really this stupid?  Unbelievable! What kind of person would do this to a 16-yr-old, and much less a friend?  This poor kid now has to endure the pain and humiliation of being physically and emotionally scarred for the rest of his life. I hope he gets through this okay. 

Shannon, on the other hand, has been charged with "wounding with intent to cause grevious bodily harm."  Eye for an eye, maybe??? Geez.
