MIT's Freaky Non-Stick Coating Keeps Ketchup & Mayonaise Flowing

So how many of you have pounded the hell out of a ketchup bottle trying to get the darn thing to pour out?  Or found yourself at the end of a rope, trying to get the remaining remnants from a mayonaise bottle? 

Well, thanks to some PhD students at MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), an invention like no other has been created, or better yet, a non-toxic substance.

Meet LiquiGlide, a "super slippery" coating made up of nontoxic materials that can be applied to all sorts of food packaging--though ketchup and mayonnaise bottles might just be the substance’s first targets.

Here are the before and after videos...

Check out what happens when you pour ketchup out of a LiquiGlide-coated bottle:

For point of reference, here’s ketchup coming out of a regular bottle. Keep in mind, this is the exact same ketchup. It’s so time-consuming and wasteful.

Here’s mayo coming out of the coated bottle:

As opposed to this:

Keep in mind, these students worked in collaboration with the FDA to make sure they could use materials the FDA had previously approved.  According to Dave Smith, one of the PhD candidates, "I can’t say what they are, but we’ve patented the hell out of it."

Can you smell instant millionaires?

My "flesh" Is Intrigued By The Idea of Killing Homosexuals and Adulterers!

Lovely. Just Lovely.

Curtis Knapp
Oh, I just love Baptist churches!  Don't you?  Hell, when all they do is condemn homosexuality and force God down our throats, what makes them think we want to worship with them?  Seriously?  Don't they think we love God just as much, if not, more than all of them!!!!

Two more Baptist pastors have come out in support of killing your brother, sister, mother, father, uncle, aunt, grandmother, grandfather, cousins, friends, co-workers, the list goes on.  All because... well... a straight couple bore a gay child.

Dennis Leatherman
Two pastors, Curtis Knapp of the New Hope Baptist Church in Seneca, Kansas, and Dennis Leatherman, pastor at the Mountain Lake Baptist Church in Oakland, Md spoke from the pulpit at two of their recent Sunday sermons.  While Knapp suggested that the government should put gay people to death, Leatherman said that his “flesh” is intrigued by the idea of killing homosexuals.

You can read more about this ridiculous nonsense here and even listen to clips of their sermons.

Voting Republican!

It's Purely Animal - Issue No. 56 - Why Lambs Should Never Be An Indoor Pet

So yeah... Lambs should never be indoor pets. What do you think?  LOL. 

Well, they are kinda cute, bumping heads, jumping over couches and what not.  I guess if one can have a piggy as a pet, why not a lamb; or two or three?

Enjoy the video... It's Purely Animal.

Tetris: The Movie

Will you be watching?  Every piece will be falling into place...

So if Battleship got its own movie, why not Tetris, right? LOL.  Loved it.  Good job Warialasky.

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 26 - Crazy Church Lady

One of the most read series on my blog gets another great story... And it's all about this brilliant woman right here... Stacey Pritchard.
Remember my post from last Tuesday, the one about the Baptist pastor who told his congregation that all gays, including Ryan and myself, should be detained in electrified camps until we're all dead?  

Well the stupidity didn't end there.  Anderson Cooper had a member of the church on his show, AC360, who states that the Pastor's words were taken out of context.  And when Anderson grills her with questions, she continues with her stupidity by agreeing that those who commit adultery should also be put to death.  And she does this throughout the interview, rolling her eyes; stating that everyone is taking the words out of context.  

Honestly, Christians love using the phrase, no really, they do.  You see, I'm a Christian and this went on in every church I attended.  It's true we would always tell non-Christians that they are taking the "true words" out of context.

Check out the video, it's great!  Go Anderson! Love ya!

What a Hot Fucking Mess! Real-Life Hannibal Lecter Shot Dead Over The Weekend

I'm sorry, I tried to refrain from using inappropriate language, but this is just absolutely horrendous! 

Yes, it sounds like a story meant only for the theater, but it's true.  A man's face was eaten by another human being in what is called one of the most bizarre stories in a very long time. 80 percent of the victim's face was completely gone, including his nose and eyeballs.  The victim is currently in a local hospital in Miami.  Honestly, I don't know if I would want to be alive after this.
According to the Courthouse News Service "A naked man eating another man's face "growled like a wild animal" before he was shot dead by Miami police, a police officer said, telling Courthouse News, "I think this is the craziest thing anyone's ever heard of." The dead man, possibly in the throes of a drug-induced psychosis, allegedly ignored the officers demand to stop eating the other man.
The story broke late last week and has been making the rounds over Facebook like wildfire. I failed to mention it until now, because I was enjoying my Memorial Day weekend.

Sad thing is, I think this will be made into a movie within a year or so.

Quoted: Channing Tatum on Who Will See His Movie - Women and Gays

People say that women and the gay community will go see [Magic Mike] – knock on wood – but I know straight guys won’t be like, ‘Yo, what’s up man – you wanna go see the stripping movie after the game tonight?’ I doubt they’ll have the balls to see it. What’s funny is that the girls don’t ask me questions about my stripping days, but straight guys want to know everything. It’s that fantasy element. It’s probably why a lot of females on Halloween are the whorey version of a ketchup bottle, or slutty nurse, which I love and respect – it’s liberating.

How Many Weeks Do You Get For Paid Maternity Leave?

I found this article rather fascinating.  And it would probably be more fascinating for pregnant women and/or expecting fathers.

There are exactly three countries on Earth that do not provide guarantees for paid maternity leave. Papua New Guinea and Swaziland are two of them. Care to guess the third?
Courtesy of Think Progress Health: Out of 178 nations, the U.S. is one of three that does not offer paid maternity leave benefits, let alone paid leave for fathers, which more than 50 of these nations offer. Here’s how the U.S. stacks up to 14 other countries: 
In comparison, Canada and Norway offer generous benefits that can be shared between the father and mother, France offers about four months, and even Mexico and Pakistan are among the nations offer 12 weeks paid leave for mothers.

American women are offered 12 weeks of unpaid leave under the Family and Medical Leave Act, which exempts companies with fewer than 50 paid employees, but in 2011, only 11 percent of private sector workers and 17 percent of public workers reported that they had access to paid maternity leave through their employer. And for first-time mothers, only about half can take paid leave when they give birth. Read More...

One Direction's Gay Love For Louis

As if you needed any further proof that the boys from One Direction have a thing for their bandmate, Louis Tomlinson, the cutest one from the group. LOL.  These 9 moveable gif pics goes to show how popular the gayest group in 30 years have become.

Movies to Watch - The Great Gatsby

Hmmm. Who knows? I might actually watch it.  I found the idea of remaking such a great classic rather repulsive, but after watching the trailer to The Great Gatsby, I may find myself liking it.  It is a Baz Lurhmann movie after all.  The movie doesn't come out till Christmas, but the trailer should satisfy your craving for now.  Maybe Leonardo DiCaprio will win his damn Oscar for once.

From IMDB: Nick Carraway, a Midwesterner now living on Long Island, finds himself fascinated by the mysterious past and lavish lifestyle of his neighbor, Jay Gatsby. He is drawn into Gatsby's circle, becoming a witness to obsession and tragedy.

Quoted - Republican Colin Powell on Endorsing Gay Marriage

I have no problem with it, and it was the Congress that imposed Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, though it was certainly my position and my recommen-dation to get us out of an even worse outcome that could have occurred, as you’ll recall. But as I’ve thought about gay marriage, I know a lot of friends who are individually gay but are in partnerships with loved ones, and they are as stable a family as my family is, and they raise children. And so I don’t see any reason not to say that they should be able to get married.– former Secretary of State Colin Powell endorsing gay marriage during an interview today with Wolf Blitzer on The Situation Room.

From Rainbow Boys to Rainbow Road

I found this book cover rather ironic.  I read the book when I was younger.  "Rainbow Boys" is about the struggles of three gay teens, a Jock, a nerd (goth) boy, and the good all-American boy next door.  It's actually a really good book.  The book was followed by "Rainbow High" and "Rainbow Road" respectfully.  I have all three books. :-).  The two subsequent books follow the same characters moving on from graduation to post-graduation.  

But onto why I found the cover to "Rainbow Boys" ironic...
The Jock standing behind the other two boys is Matt Bomer.  You know - the actor who recently came out of the closet.  You probably recognize him from the hit television series, "Chuck" or the upcoming movie, "Magic Mike".  

Who knew that Matt would be on the cover of a gay book while being out of the closet, before he was in the closet, before coming out of the closet. LOL.

Must Watch - Must Listen: Tarzan Rain

You may remember or you may not, but in one of my flashbacks (that I haven't done in a while), I featured a song titled Tarzan and Boy by Baltimora.  It was actually a club song from the late 80's, early 90's - a one hit wonder to say the least.  Well today I came across an odd mashup..

Adele vs. Tarzan.  I know, I know, my thoughts exactly.  But it does sound pretty good.  The Reborn Identity mashed up Set Fire to the Rain with the 80s New Wave dance hit.  Take a look, and listen.

Hello Joffrey!

Why does this sound so good to me right now?  LOL.  I'm sorry, I certainly don't condone Dexter Morgan for his murderous ways; He's killing the scum of the earth who never got their due punishment for the crimes they committed.  But Joffrey Baratheon on the other hand, I CAN'T STAND HIM!!!!  ugh!  I know it's just a show, but I hate this 20 year kid (15 on the show)!  Well, the character anyway :-)
For those who don't know Joffrey...  He is a character on one of the best shows on television, Game of Thrones.  He is played by the actor, Jack Gleeson, and currently the King sitting on the Iron Throne.   Whoever sits on this throne is ruler of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros.  In short, he is a cruel, sadistic, and tyrannical ruler!!  And that may be putting it mildly.

The Kitty Avengers!!!!

The Avengers are on top of the world right now, possibly on their way to beating James Cameron's top two movies, Avatar and Titanic. But kinda unlikely, I say.  

In either case, the movie has taken the throne for 3 weeks, and I don't see it stopping anytime soon, unless Batman has anything to say about it. Oh wait, I think Brave, Spider-Man, and Prometheus will be coming out soon.

Here's a little humor for your day... The Kitty Avengers!!!!

Magical Fun 101: Drive Thru Static Shock

I'm LMAO over here, but this is absolutely hilarious.  Rahat is back and he's getting shocked every time he picks up his meal at a drive-thru.  He first lit his wallet on fire, then he made a dollar bill float in mid-air, then shocked and stunned drive-thru workers by making his coke levitate in front of them.

But this time he shocks them!  Literally. LOL.  He tells one of the girls through the drive-thru, "is Pikachu in the bag" and she goes, "uh, uh."  Then the hilarity continues when a girl at McDonald's asks Rahat, "What the hell was that?"  She turns to her co-workers and asks, "Did ya'll just see that?... Whatever that lighting was, it hit him and me when I was passing him his card" they all look up at the sky like if something was actually striking them.  This is definitely your laugh of the day.

Detain Them In Electrified Camps Until They're All Dead!

I was reading Facebook this morning and came across this horrible article... "N.C. pastor calls for "lesbians and queers" to be detained in electrified camps "until they're all dead"" - Full Story
You know that despite the hatred that comes from these religious people, they will be judged for how they were on earth.  Whether you believe in God or not, most of these people who call themselves Christians are the most vile people on earth.

But like Jesus asked his Father on his dying day, "Forgive them Father, for they know not what they do"

The Biebs Being All Sexy and Douchey

I thought I'd post these "sexified," gif pics of Justin Bieber, because everyone knows all you gay boys have a secret crush on him.  Even though it pleases you to say he looks like a lesbian.

Yes, this is Dora The Explorer in real-life.  Amazing, isn't it?

The Green Arrow Trailer

As if 10 years of Smallville wasn't enough for the CW, now they've brought on The Green Arrow.  

At first I was kinda bummed to hear they got rid of Justin Hartley, the actor who played the character on Smallville for 4 years, but they did good with Stephen Amell.  And I mean really good :-) 

Check out the hot steamy trailer featuring the hero himself.  For real - his abs, his biceps, his torso, everything!  You know they're going to have him shirtless as much as possible.

I would still take Harry's Law over this any day. I'm sorry, but I can't believe they cancelled one of our favorite shows.
