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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Killer Whale Submarine

Imagine if an Orca (Killer Whale) was coming straight at you while you were jet skiing at your local lakeside resort.  Not that you would run into an Orca in a lake, but if you had one of these coming at you - you would. LOL.  Check out this pretty cool invention...

The folks over at Hammacher Schlemmer have designed a watercraft that travels underwater and over.  It is designed after the famous Orcinus Orca.  According to their website "it can hydroplane up to 50 mph over the water's surface and it can cruise up to 25 mph while submerged; its dorsal fin's integrated snorkel ensures air supply to the engine up to a depth of 5'."

You can watch the video below, it seems like a lot of fun.  So for those who have plenty of money and you enjoy jet-skiing or boating, you will definitely love this $100,000 beauty.

Oh Lord Jesus please forgive me for posting this video. But it's too hilarious not to share.  I cannot believe these people even exist or existed. LOL.

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 24 - Mother Grizzly and Her Cub Charge Photographer

Seriously?  "The timing was actually perfect, I didn't have to kill her or her cub"  Really? You f-ing idiot!  I swear, "Are People Really This Stupid?"

The other day, a Grizzly scared the crap out of a woman photographer, and this time, the guy in the video below was trying to capture some good visuals when Mama Grizzly and her cub, started charging him.  I like how these photographers think.  "I'm here to take pictures of you, but if you come after me, I'm going to kill your ass."  How 'bout you stop invading their privacy and go on your merry way? Jesus!

You'd think he knew the story of Timothy Treadwell.  Both he and his wife were eaten alive by a bear?  Not much was left when they were found

The Launch of a Lego Space Shuttle

For any lover of space or science fiction, you will love this fantastic video!  The music and the whole idea of it was just impressive.  It's heartbreaking to know that we will no longer hear of our Space Shuttle or when the next launch date will be.  I never realized how much this would affect me, but the Space Shuttle program started and ended in my lifetime.  I was in 8th grade when the Space Challenger exploded and it was the greatest tragedy I had ever experienced.  Who knew that a toy could make me feel so much nostalgia.
In the following video Raul Oaida used a helium-filled weather balloon to launch a Lego Space Shuttle to an altitude of 114,000 feet. He explains why he did it and how much effort went into completing this project on his website.

YouTube Description: My name is Raul Oaida (from Romania) and this is my LEGO tribute to the end of the space shuttle era. Proving that although retired, this machine can still fly, albeit in toy form.

The launch took place from central Germany (easy flight clearance) and reached a max altitude of 35000m. A 1600g meteo balloon filled with helium was used alongside a GoPro Hero, Spot GPS and of course Lego Space Shuttle model 3367.

We launched it on the 31st of December 2011, the equipment was recovered via GPS tracking 240 km S-E from a remote area.

I wish to thank Steve Sammartino for the opportunity to do this project and the german airtraffic control for the understanding.
