What I Do, Fun-wise: The internet is my playground. (Thank you, Al Gore.) I spend a lot of time on it, blogging, reading news/gossip sites, chatting with people, what-have-you. I also make a lot of unnecessary trips to Target. Not sure if that counts as fun, but it seems to take up a lot of my time... And I foster dogs for a rescue organization (RED Collar Rescue).
My Motto: "Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It's not." - Dr. Suess, 'The Lorax'
My Anti-Motto: It is what it is.
The First Star I Ever Had A Crush On: Michael Jackson or Boy George. Not sure which came first.
My "celebs to make out with" list: Keanu Reeves, Kal Penn, James McAvoy, Gale Harold, Jacoby Shaddix (sorry to Jacoby's wife!)

Revenge porn is sick. It's posted online for the sole purpose of humiliating the person in the picture or video. There are so many things wrong with that, it would take me forever to unpack it*.
Ariella Alexander -- which is totally not her real name because she wants to (ironically) maintain her privacy -- runs a revenge porn site that's different than most.
Usually it’s jilted male lovers who post photos given to them in confidence, or taken by them in trust, in an attempt to humiliate their ex-partners. But the jilted lovers in this scenario are married women, who send Alexander photos of their husbands’ alleged mistresses. Her website is dedicating to naming and shaming “homewreckers.”
So she's posting pictures of women along with their FULL NAMES AND ADDRESSES, without their permission. Granted, she doesn't post nudes (she covers the naughty bits), but still. It's totally reprehensible. And she doesn't think she's doing anything wrong.
“As far as expecting privacy, I think your privacy flew out the window as soon as you sent it to somebody else,” she continued. “It’s no longer a private photo.”
One guy was recently charged with theft and extortion for running a revenge porn site, so it probably won't be long before this crap catches up with "Alexander". I hope it's sooner rather than later.
*But let me start by saying it's the men who are cheating who deserve the wrath of their partners. Damn.
JFC. The guy in handcuffs was arrested for DUI, and he made the mistake of making a noise. Then the corrections officer, Charlie Broaderick, slammed the guy's head into the wall, saying, "You don't spit at officers."
Broaderick was subsequently arrested and charged with assault, but spent just 13 minutes in a jail cell before posting his $2,000 bail.
Marion County has since placed Broaderick on unpaid leave pending the result of an excessive force investigation.
I... um... uhhhhhh...
I barely know where to start. This such a chicken/egg story.
An employee at Florida Atlantic University was arrested for taking video (and posting them online) of 13 different guys wanking in the library men's room. Which is terrible. You should never violate someone's privacy like that.
And you shouldn't be masturbating in a public library.
According to the arrest affidavit, the employee, who worked in the library, filmed guys in the facility's bathroom urinating and masturbating. He then posted the clips to porn sites under the JERKING_BUD handle, catchy little numbers with titles like "A college kid and his dad taking a leak at a public bathroom" and "My buddy jerking off in the stall next to me."
If I saw that, I'd probably record it, too. But I'd laugh and show it to my friends, not post it to pornhub.com.
The car actually flips over, and the look on her face just says "Dammit". Like now she's going to be late to wherever she's going and it sucks, nevermind that her car just rolled over.
To break it down, if you just order "coffee", you'll be paying almost $10. Throw in a simple "please", and the price falls to just under $6. Add "thank you", and you're paying less than $2.

Oh, Kim. Kimmy, Kimmy, Kim. Honey. You should have known people were going to give you some serious side-eye when that news came out.
Kim took to her blog, defending the 10% she donated in a post titled 'Giving Comes From The Heart', which should have been corrected to 'Giving 10% Comes From The Heart'. She gave the usual "But I donate my money all the time!" spiel, and then said:
In regards to these eBay auctions, when the eBay numbers get broken down, the auction management agency that posts for me gets a percentage for all of their hard work, then eBay listing fees, end of auction fees, eBay Store fees, Paypal fees, etc., all add up to about half of the sale. Then I give 10% to a charity.
So... she still pocketed 40%.
Ignoring the fact that there's an ad for hair products hidden in there, the message is AMAZING, and it's one that people need to pay attention to.
It's kind of cool that almost 20 years after his death, the guy is nominated for a Grammy. It's because Justin Timberlake sings a few lines of 'Smells Like Teen Spirit' in the Grammy nominated Jay-Z song. Because the members of Nirvana were the writers, they each get a nod. (sheknows.com)
