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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 13 - Black Friday at Urban Outfitters

Seriously people.  If I ever get to an age where I have to act like a teeny bopper waiting to see Justin Bieber, please shoot me or have me committed.  Are people really this stupid?

Look at the hundreds of shoppers waiting for Urban Outfitters to open up on Black Friday, and watch as they rush in in droves.  It's almost laughable.  This is downright ridiculous.  What on earth could one possibly need that they can't get tomorrow?

Crimes of the Century - No. 1 - The Lindbergh Kidnapping

On a winter's night 75 years ago, a child was stolen out of a house in New Jersey. He was no ordinary infant but the "Eaglet," the 20-month-old son of the aviator Charles Lindbergh, America's great hero who, just five years before, had become the first man to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean. For the next two and a half months, America and much of the world were riveted by daily updates and speculation from the police search for Baby Charles. Suspicion spared no one -- not even the Lindberghs. In April, news spread that a ransom had been paid but still no child was recovered. 

Finally, in May, a battered, mutilated little corpse was found by the side of the road, not far from the Lindberghs' home. Baby Charles had been bludgeoned to death not long after he had been kidnapped. The resulting trial, sentencing and execution of German carpenter and ex-convict Bruno Richard Hauptmann for the crime would extend the infamy of the case four more years. But the Lindbergh kidnapping had become more than just a particularly heinous act. It had become the Crime of the Century. Many other crimes have earned the distinction -- but what makes an infamous event deserving of the title Crime of the Century?
TIME Magazine has put together a list of notorious crimes that might vie for that distinction. I will be blogging about these crimes throughout the next few weeks as I continue with my blogging adventures.
You may notice in the coming weeks, that there are no political assassinations on the list. Nor mass suicides or genocide. All of those are certainly terrible crimes and possibly even graver sins. But there is a degree of conscious orchestration to those acts. The Crime of the Century must strike at the most undefined and thus most vulnerable part of the soul: it must touch the messy unconscious, where all kinds of emotions meld into each other. Pity and envy are involved; desire and revulsion; fear and sometimes schadenfreude (glee). And while each person has his or her own brew of emotions, we all recognize them. So our fascination with the crime becomes a populist mania: an obsession with the wreckage of the rich and famous, comeuppance for hubris, a communal grasping for a moral to a sordid tale. These horrible disruptions of ordinary life must be able to function as a way to order our most frightening thoughts, becoming cautions and lessons for the future.
As you read through the 25 crimes Time Magazine has selected, they will make you wonder which of them will remain in the popular, perhaps even the artistic imagination in the years to come? How will they be retold and with what kinds of lessons and cautions in mind? Here's the first issue, the first crime on Time's infamous list.  How do you think they will fare?  Visit my blog every Saturday as a new crime will be posted each week.

Siri Caught In The Middle [NSFW]

So I'm sure everyone knows by now that Siri is the next best thing to come along since, I don't know, The Ford Pinto?  In either case, that little bitch is up to no good once again.  This time she gets in between a loving marriage and makes things so difficult. This video is rated NSFW due to it's vulgar language.
As you know, the Siri is the new intelligent software assistant and knowledge navigator functioning as a personal assistant for, the all so fabulous, iPhone. The application uses a natural language user interface to answer questions, make recommendations, and perform actions by delegating requests to a set of web services. Siri claims that the software adapts to the user's individual preferences over time and personalizes results, as well as accomplishing tasks such as making dinner reservations and reserving a cab.
