*Apparently Facebook is feeling all of the ex-lovers who no longer want to see a bunch of old memories taking up space in their new digs. After all, it took you long enough to get over him or her, so now that you have, why be forced to revisit pictures of the two of you in happier days…after the love is gone?
Facebook feels your pain and they have hooked you…us…up baby! They’ve installed break up tools by way of the DISlike button – so you and your ex-boo can make a clean getaway.
Bye Felix or Felicia…You ain’t got to go home but you’ve got to get the hell…well, you know where I’m going with that right?
“We’re starting to test these tools today in the U.S. on mobile, and we’ll make changes and roll them out further based on people’s feedback,” wrote Facebook Product Manager Kelly Winters in a blog post.
“This work is part of our ongoing effort to develop resources for people who may be going through difficult moments in their lives … We hope these tools will help people end relationships on Facebook with greater ease, comfort and sense of control.”
I can see all the cowards now (and I’m not necessarily counting myself out!). Palms just itching at the prospect of never having to be talked out of a relationship you both know is doomed because now, you don’t have to break the news face-to-face). Continue reading →
*This is one frightening photo, yes? And it raises so many questions about how children are being raised today, and what is deemed OK. By any and all accounts, a photo of a teen smiling as he holds a semiautomatic weapon, with his finger on the trigger, is anything but OK. The teen posted the photo as his profile picture on Facebook, and now parents at Royton and Crompton School in Manchester, England have taken their children out of the school…in droves.
Can you blame them?
“There was a mass exodus,” one father told the Daily Mail. “Mums and dads were just walking in and out of the school all day, unchallenged. … When you see another child in your son or daughter’s class posing with a gun, then you don’t take any chances.”
As it turns out, the teen had first posted the photo in August, after a trip to Pakistan; where a licensed person can legally own a weapon. But was taken down later. Now, after the recent terrorist attacks in Paris, the boy posted the photo again–this time with a French flag overlaid.
Needless to say, it sent everyone involved into a state of fear.
*Uh, raising my hand here to ask you a question: Isn’t sex supposed to feel good? No one, especially anyone young and healthy, expects to die from it, right? Yet someone did. And now a Florida man has been put behind bars after he admitted to ‘accidentally’ shooting a woman in the head during sex.
By the time police responded to the 911 call made by Tyrone Fields, telling them what he had done–accidentally shot Christina Meagher during “freaky sex” — it was too late to save her.
When cops arrived Meagher was lying on the bed with a gunshot wound in her head. They transported the injured woman to St. Joseph’s Hospital, but she died soon after from her injuries.Continue reading →
*Elaine B. Goodman is somebody’s mother so I am not going to slaughter her with my words because of her nasty deed. But if I am being totally honest, if thoughts could kill, she’d be dead now. Guess the family of the kid that she raped, and I, will just have to be satisfied with the fact that she is in jail and has been charged with fourth-degree rape, three counts of third-degree rape, two counts of second-degree unlawful sexual contact, and sexual solicitation of their 13-year-old son; who was alleged to be her daughter’s boyfriend.
Goodman, a 45-year-old Delaware resident, had sex with the teen in the back seat of her car. And her comment below, to a friend via text, was a large part of the evidence that got her apprehended.
“He is so cute with a nice ass body. I asked him what in the world are u doing with a body like that at 13…”Continue reading →
That’s right, boys and girls. Now YOU can ship a healthy pile of feces, from a variety of animals, to anyone on your list. (I’d have said “shit list”, but that fruit was hanging too low even for me.)
No, I’ve not been drinking (yet…today).
“Yes, it’s legit,” Shitexpress CEO Peter (no last name…I wonder why?) said.
The service is based in Hong Kong and launched a year ago, as a marketing experiment. Peter says the company earned $10,000 in its first month. At $16.95 per shipment, that’s almost 600 boxes of poop in one month. The company says they’ve made more than 2,500 shipments to-date. Continue reading →
*I am proudly showing my age here. Because I can recall growing up to a talented actor who always made me feel good. His mere presence brought a smile to my face. When I saw his movies, I didn’t think about race, financial issues or how crappy a day I may have been having. His work just made me smile.
Which is why it is so very sad to hear that one of my Hollywood idols, Mickey Rooney, suffered elder abuse in his final years…at the hands of his eighth wife, Jan.
Rooney died on April 6, 2014 at the age of 93 and the recent expose by Hollywood Reporter, who later posed their own investigation and gained access to legal docs, witness testimony, and financial records never published before puts him back in the news now.
It also shows Rooney suffered abuse greater than he revealed (scroll down).
No doubt someone, hell-bent on being negative, will dig and find something they will be considered ‘racist’ in Rooney’s past; whether it be something in his work on the “Hardy Boys” films of old or anything else. But let me spare them the effort right now: keep it to yourself.
I’m just not interested.
Elder abuse is real. And it doesn’t consider your race. It is initiated and sustained by thoughtless, careless, greedy individuals. Wolves in sheep’s clothing. And so many people who worked their entire lives, have now lost the ability due to age to be independent and as a result, are vulnerable. Continue reading →
