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 - - - - - - - - - - -

25 Things About Superman You Didn't Know

Virgin Movies put this infographic together prior to the release of Man of Steel, and I thought I would share it.  And there are several things I didn't know.  Like Gene Hackman refusing to cut his hair and Marlon Brando refusing to learn his lines.  Pretty cool stuff.  Check it out.

The Beer Can Concealer!

LMAO, this is for all you sneaky little bastards!  You know who you are; the ones who try to hide what they're drinking.  Well, now you can buy you're very own beer can cover.  Yup, cover it up with a Coca-Cola sleeve; though I wouldn't waste my money paying $7.90 for one, I would just "make my own" if I were you.

Improv Everywhere: The 1860s Bar

If you've never heard of Improv Everywhere, you're missing out on some pretty chaotic stuff.  They're actually pretty fun to watch, and the stuff they come up with are pretty hilarious.  One of the last videos I posted from them was "Meet a Black Person", where they put up a stand in Aspen, Colorado with an opportunity to meet a black person.  Keep in mind, Aspen's white population is 90%.  The reactions by several passer-by were hilarious.  

Yesterday, the Improv crew posted a video online titled, The 1860's Bar, where they completely transformed a local bar in Brooklyn, New York to match the era.  They literally turned the clock back 150 years and invited a couple friends who had no idea what they were walking into. LOL.

Things We Can Do To Save The Environment - Issue No. 22 - Skip the Steak

I don't think giving up steak is on my list of helping the environment, but if it's something you've been thinking about doing, then by all means - quit it.  Seriously; all the cows in the world are warming up our planet faster than the millions of cars we drive in.  But it isn't just the cows - it's the sheep, buffalo and any other animal that takes a crap and releases nitrous oxide.

Giving credit to TIME,  I'd like to thank them for showing us the many ways we can help save the environment.  Just one person can make a difference, and it starts with YOU!

22. Skip the Steak

Which is responsible for more global warming: your BMW or your Big Mac? Believe it or not, it's the burger. The international meat industry generates roughly 18% of the world's greenhouse-gas emissions—even more than transportation—according to a report last year from the U.N.'s Food and Agriculture Organization. Much of that comes from the nitrous oxide in manure and the methane that is, as the New York Times delicately put it, "the natural result of bovine digestion." Methane has a warming effect that is 23 times as great as that of carbon, while nitrous oxide is 296 times as great.

There are 1.5 billion cattle and buffalo on the planet, along with 1.7 billion sheep and goats. Their populations are rising fast, especially in the developing world. Global meat production is expected to double between 2001 and 2050. Given the amount of energy consumed raising, shipping and selling livestock, a 16-oz.T-bone is like a Hummer on a plate.

If you switch to vegetarianism, you can shrink your carbon footprint by up to 1.5 tons of carbon dioxide a year, according to research by the University of Chicago. Trading a standard car for a hybrid cuts only about one ton—and isn't as tasty.
