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 - - - - - - - - - - -

2012 Underemployment Rates at the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools

If you're planning to be a lawyer, you may want to look into doing something else.  I'm not trying to be a downer or anything, but things aren't looking too bright in the U.S. News Top 25 Law Schools.  Just sayn'.

Here are the percentage of graduates who are unemployed or in short-term, part-time, or non-professional jobs 9 months after graduation.

Could this just be a sign the U.S. News rankings are way off and don’t really reflect the job market? In part, yes. The magazine’s annual list does incorporate employment outcomes as part of its formula, and some law firms pay an absurd amount of attention to it. But after going back through the data and ranking the 25 schools with the lowest underemployment, I found that only 15 of them could be found in the U.S. News Top 25. The other 10 included schools like number #76 LSU and number #126 Campbell University.

"This was outside the post office along with another guy asking if I wanted to know more about being a revolutionary. God Bless Texas and all it's crazies. Suffice it to say he didn't ask the black guy that was walking in front of me."

What an amazing video.  I was mesmerized by the quality and the hard bodies :-).  Actually the video was shot using a Phantom Miro Camera - capable of shooting 1500 frames per second.  

Experts in cinematic sports, Australia's Infinity List joined Bounce Inc, to produce this awe-inspiring video.  Bounce is a massive indoor trampoline universe all about jumping high and landing soft & safe.

Foods That Will Make You Fat - Issue No. 27

Where do I even begin with this week's issue of "Foods That Will Make You Fat"?  I guess we can start with the delicious Sushi everybody loves.  And I'm not talking about the healthy Japanese ones you guys enjoy.  This one is "All-American".
Thanksgiving Sushi
Are you tired of making potpies with all your Thanksgiving leftovers?  Well, tire no more, this lovely recipe will have you eating Japanese sushi - American style.  Yep, this lovely concoction has green beans, roasted turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, garlic and brown gravy.  Doesn't this just want to make you go out and buy all the ingredients?  I'm going to say, probably not.

Downside Watson
So after you and the family are done playing with your frisbee, why not take it inside and throw in 7 scoops of ice cream (vanilla, coffee Oreo, PB Reese’s, white Russian, mint Oreo, cherry vanilla, and reverse chocolate chip), 9 toppings (Oreos, Heath bar, hot fudge, whipped cream, Reese’s Pieces, mixed nuts, waffle pieces, rainbow sprinkles, and almonds) and feast on it?  Seriously, who would eat this crap?

Pecanless Pie
If you thought I was done with Thanksgiving you were wrong.  What's Thanksgiving dinner without a yummy pecan pie?  Honestly, why do they even call it a Pecanless pie?  It doesn't even have pecans or any type of  nut in it.  The damn pie is made with Fritos Corn Chips!  Can I go throw up now?
