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 - - - - - - - - - - -

Some Pretty Cool Stuff - Issue No. 006

Yay!!! It's time for "Some Pretty Cool Stuff"...

I figured that since I'm constantly in the kitchen creating recipes, cooking and enjoying life - today's issue would consist of three must-haves for the kitchen.

Let's start off with the Quirky Ribbon Baking Pan!

The Ribbon is a modular baking pan that allows you to control the shape and the size of the baking area. Using the silicone band that attaches to the steel baking sheet with magnets, you can shape the baking area to fit the needs of your recipe and create different shaped molds for your cakes, brownies, and your most decadent desires. Ding! When you’re done baking simply peel away the silicone band to unleash those delicious treats!
Unfortunately this item isn't for sell yet, but they can sign me up!

The Quirky Pluck!
From bodybuilders to soccer moms, egg whites are a great healthy breakfast choice. But separating the yolk from the whites can seem like pulling a rabbit from a hat. Enter Quirky’s Pluck, the yolk extractor you’ll have to see to believe. Simply place it over the yolk of an already cracked egg, squeeze the silicone chamber, and release to suck the egg yolk up into it. To dispose of its contents, just give Pluck another squeeze and move onto the next egg. When finished, separate the two pieces and wash by hand or in the dishwasher. Buy $12.99 video

The Corn Kerneler!
Wow, this would definitely help me with making sweet corn tamales! Thanks to the stainless steel blades in this contraption, it makes plucking the corn off the cob seem like child's play. $12.95

Things That Make You Go Hmmm... Texas vs. Chile

I've known this for a long time, but just in case none of my fellow Texans knew...

We not only stole the flag design from Chile, we stole their damn motto too.  LMAO.
Chilean Flag
In order for Texas to differinteate itself from Chile, they made their star bigger and the blue extend from top to bottom on the left hand side.

Texan Flag
As for the motto, Chile's "La Estrella Solitaria", is "The Lone Star" in English.

And we are????  

The Lone Star State - go figure. 

Now that is something to really make you go, "hmmm".

Are People Really This Stupid? Issue No. 29 - Facebook is Full of Them (20 Pics)

LMAO!  I'm sorry, but I had to post these pics - they're freaking hilarious!!! And I'm using "freaking" to be kind. LOL.

But seriously folks.  When people start thinking the Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a natural creation it's time to re-evaluate our education system in this country.  Oh wait, are we not 22 in the world in education, or is that 50?  Who cares - we're behind.
Check out the remaining pics after the jump.... they will have you on the edge of your seat laughing.
