The AP is reporting 2 dead after what appears to be a suicide bomber attack at the U.S. Embassy in Ankara, Turkey. This marks the second U.S. Embassy attack in less than 6 months. On September 11, 2012, the U.S. Embassy in Libya was attacked, leaving 4 Americans dead. The attack, adds to an already [...]
At last, that bloated, bureaucratic behemoth – the US Postal Service – has done something to cast a small shadow of clear-headed decision making upon their massive $9.2 billion deficit. In a rare moment of lucidity, the braintrust at the USPS rightfully singled out the legendary Man in Black to be included as part of [...]
The brain bleach had barely taken away the images of a mankini-clad Steven Tyler playing the bongs in Hawaii last week when this appeared on the TV screen: Dude doesn’t REALLY look like a lady!
Via Gawker, Beyoncé answered questions from the press today at her Super Bowl press conference and defended her controversial lip-syncing of the National Anthem at President Obama’s inauguration, only after she made a flashy point. When she was first announced, she walked straight to the podium and asked the audience to stand. She then sang [...]
Remember our favorite weatherman? 2006 feels like only yesterday. Justin Mosely is moving on. He’s joining a West Palm Beach ABC affiliate station. We pray it has roaches. Just for our sakes. “I will always be thankful to the entire Suncoast community for being so supportive,” Mosely said. “I feel like I found myself here.” And [...]
So the next time you’re getting a Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino with extra whipped cream, a squirt of caramel syrup, and some awesomeness to go with it, look around for someone’s paycheck. We all know how hard they are to come by these days.
CNN got around to reporting on the evolving scandal of Democratic Senator Robert Menendez, and his involvement in flying to the Dominican Republic and allegedly soliciting underage prostitutes, and it looks like his defenders on Capitol Hill are starting to back away from him. After earlier laughing off the scandal as a product of politics [...]
Book Riot recently published a list of non-fiction books they think ought be reshelved as fiction. Believe it or not, Lance Armstrong’s memoir (and pretty much any book he’s written or contributed to) didn’t merit a mention. Really? But, maybe it’s just “too soon” to go there. The worst thing about the list is that [...]
1.”APACHE DANCE – HASAN BABA” I have literally no idea what is going on in this video. Between the fantastic dance moves of the grandfather, disinterested grandson in the front, amused baby off to the side, and the mysterious disappearing shoe, this video is a classic. 2. “Russians sledging off buildings” Remind me again how [...]
Authoritarians show a softer side for Valentine’s Day: President Vladimir Putin’s crusade to raise the country’s birth rate is set to get the support of three powerful voices on its behalf. A baritone and two tenors, that is. The stylish trio of Boyz II Men, the most successful R&B group of all time, is coming to Moscow on Feb. 6. The group will perform a selection of their classic and new romantic ballads, [...]
In freshman Senator Ted Cruz’s first line of questioning for Chuck Hagel, the nomination to become President Obama’s next Defense Secretary, he asked why Hagel, in an interview with Al Jazeera TV, agreed with a caller that the United States was “the world’s bully.” Hagel denied that he agreed with the caller and Cruz called [...]
Vice President Al Gore somehow didn’t realize that the mainstream media was actually going to ask him questions about his recent sale of Current TV to Al Jazeera for a reported $500 million. Whoops… “I get the criticism, I just disagree with it…”
Unlike the mini-frenzy that occurred after DirectTV’s petite lap giraffe commercial, small “pygmy” elephants are both very real and very cute. They’re native to the island of Borneo, which is owned by the countries of Brunei, Indonesia, and Malaysia. They’re smaller than other Asian elephants, a little chunkier, and have floppier ears and longer tails. [...]
It’s already been a very long day for Senator Chuck Hagel, President Obama’s pick to be the next Secretary of Defense. Amidst questioning in front of the Senate Armed Services Committee, Hagel directly refused to answer a simple question from former colleague Senator John McCain.
