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 - - - - - - - - - - -

America's Most Protected Home

If you're into any movie involving the White House blowing up, then on May 22, you'll have your chance.  You may remember me talking about the upcoming movie, Olympus Has Fallen, but little did you know it takes thousands of people to protect our precious home of homes.

You can learn more about what it takes to protect the White House and the numerous attempts to infiltrate it with this awesome infographic below, courtesy of Ernesto Olivares and The Huffington Post.  Feel free to click on the graphic to enlarge.

While someone did make the comment, "I don't think it is a good idea to be giving out this information so freely, right down to how many uniformed secret service men/women, seconds to walk from oval office to residence, how many stories below east wing, swat team...... ", I doubt there's much we truly know.   I'm sure there's plenty hidden we don't know about.

Not sure exactly how this movie will seem realistic when a bunch of terrorists someone manage to take over the most well guarded home in America, but oh well, hopefully it will be exciting.
