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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Daylight Saving Time Explained

It's that time of year again.  Time to turn back the clocks and go back to Standard Time.  How many of you actually know why we have Daylight Saving Time?  

If you've ever been curious, this video does a great job of explaining it.  But should we even have this ridiculous time change every six months, year after year?  That is the question.

From the same guy who brought you  "Coffee: The Greatest Addiction Ever," comes this excellent video on Daylight Saving Time, and I actually learned more about it than I thought I knew.  Hope you enjoy it.

If you live in the States, make sure to turn back your watches and clocks at 2 AM Sunday, November 6. Unless you live in Arizona or Hawaii

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 32 - Silence Of The Pugs

OMG, I couldn't keep from laughing at this.  This is too fucking funny!  Sorry for the French, but I can't stop laughing.

Silence of the pug puppy is ready for Halloween!

Ryan and I usually dress up our 4 chihuahuas for Halloween, but we're going to forgo that this year.  Maybe Christmas , who knows.

Haboob or No Haboob, We're Getting Married!

This is what you call the power of love.  No dust storm was going to get in the way of this wedding.  Do you remember back in July when Arizona had a Haboob aka dust storm roll in through town?  If not, you can catch the amazing footage here.

These storms look like huge waves coming ashore, instead they are made of dust and roll through cities and towns.  Imagine the groom's reaction when he sees one coming upon his beautiful Arizona wedding.  And the bride isn't about to let it ruin her day.

Robot Chicken: Give It Up, Sinestro [NSFW and not for children]

Absolutely hilarious. This small video clip from Adult Swim is actually better than the movie, Green Lantern. Sorry Ryan Reynolds, I still think you're hot.

Robot Chicken is dedicating one entire stop-motion special to lampooning the superheroes and villains from DC Comics, so Adult Swim's released the first-ever clip of one sad Green Lantern and his power ring. Yep, this isn't for kids.
"But power rings can do any thing with enough willpower!"
"Oh really, have you wiped out cancer on earth?"

"Having fingers is kind of a prerequisite"
The special episode is titled "RC/DC" — there's no set date for its release yet, but keep an eye out for it sometime during Summer 2012 on Adult Swim.
