NJ trying to be like Florida? Say it ain’t so

June 17, 2015

Florida has more than its fair share of crazy people. Maybe its the sunny southern climes. Maybe its the fun, bikinis and South Beach. Maybe its the ease of access to decent citrus. Whatever it is, you usually know that any headline that starts with “Florida Man…” or “Florida Woman….” is going to end with some variation of “did something crazy”. And we, the folks who don’t live in Florida…


Woman tries to sell the sun

June 9, 2015

You might go to a notary to get a marriage license or a mortgage, but Maria Duran had another plan. She registered the sun in her name at her local notary in Vigo, Spain. Under the United Nation’s Outer Space Treaty, no country can claim ownership of the sun but Duran claims that there is no provision against humans doing so. The 54-year-old woman set up an eBay (EBAY) shop…


Oh, Florida, you’re so weird

May 29, 2015

What is it with Florida though? How come, every time I look at the weirder parts of my news feeds, “Florida Man” or “Florida Woman” is always up to SOMETHING? Naked Florida Man Stranded on Bridge A naked man was rescued from the top of an upright Fort Lauderdale drawbridge after more than two hours. At first, naked man resisted rescue attempts atop railroad drawbridge, firemen said. Firefighters answering a…


Things I believe #100: “Slut Shaming” is sometimes the RIGHT thing

May 23, 2015

Scenes from “A Harlot’s Progress” and “A Rake’s Progress” by Hogarth That’s right. I said it. “Slut Shaming” is sometimes the right thing to do. In human sexuality, slut-shaming is the act of making, or attempting to make, a person, especially a woman or girl, feel guilty or inferior for certain sexual behaviors, circumstances, or desires that deviate from traditional or orthodox gender expectations, or that which may be considered…


Psychology, The NFL, The Law & Character Issues

December 18, 2014

I’m a huge football fan. I’m also a fan of the reporting done by NPR’s Shankar Vedantam, and I look forward to hearing his reports on Morning Edition while navigating my way to work. Let’s face it, my ears perk up when I hear science stories in the news. I’m a science geek, and I’m unashamed to say it. And like Vedantam’s bio page says, The focus of his reporting…


WTF of The Week: ISIS Scorpion Bombs

December 17, 2014

Who even thinks of this sort of thing? I’ve heard of some shitty jobs….but “Scorpion Catcher for ISIS” has to be near the top of that list. Do the job badly and they cut you head off. Do the job WELL…and you’re handling fucking poisonous scorpions. Militants fighting for the Islamic State in Iraq have unveiled their latest terror tactic – bombs containing hundreds of live scorpions designed to spread…


WTF o’ The Week: Beef Fat Face

September 15, 2011

I like the taste of beef as much as the next red-blooded American male. Give me a big slab of steak, cooked “normal” (thats medium-rare for you folks who think there is more than one temp to cook meat to), and I’m in heaven. But, if I kissed my lady on the cheek and came away with the taint of rendered beef fat on my lips? I’d probably projectile vomit….


Casey Anthony in Playboy?

July 8, 2011

Rumors abound that Casey Anthony might pose in Playboy. I dearly hope those rumors are just that…rumors. Hate me if you want…but if it comes true, and she does pose in Playboy…I sincerely believe that any man that buys that issue, looks at that issue, owns that issue or even touches that issue should get a swift kick to the crotch from a pair of steel-toed Doc Martens worn by…


There is no justice. But there is “kharma”

July 6, 2011

Best. Tweet. Ever. Kim Kardashian: What!? Casey Anthony found not guilty! I am speechless! Someone else tweeted back: So was Nicole Brown Simpson’s family when your dad let OJ go. The media might coming running in to defend Kim’s tweet, saying she was young when it happened, or try and balance it with other idiotic things said by celebs. The fact is, those other celebs didn’t have a father who…


Day 2: and Osama still burns in hell

I just checked, and Oh Joy! Osama bin Laden? Still fucking dead. Granted, does this mean the world is all better now? We’ll have peace and love? Unicorns and glitter? Nope. The truth is, evil exists. Always has, and always will. WTFs Next Sometimes you stand there and think, “WTF’s Next?” while looking at a situation or something on the news. And you’re left to point, fret, wonder and mull…
