Tricks ‘Bad Guys’ Use to Lure Women from Cars (Video)

Shirt, windshield

*I will never forget the time a girlfriend told me that she had pulled up to her house late one night, and sat in her car for a while. You know how we do, we have reached our destination, sit in the car listening to voice mail or checking our messages or even decide to make a call. Well, as she sat, she told me a hooded man ran up to her car and knocked on the window with a … wait for it…

Knife.

Fortunately, after sounding the horn and scaring the man off, she was unharmed.

But that’s just how brazen these bad guys have become. For some women they consider women “easy prey.” I have come across a few tricks used by them that I want you to know about. They’ve gotten really creative so think twice about stopping, or leaving your car if you see something out of the ordinary. Though I hate saying that because it could also be a serious and real opportunity to help someone — so instead of getting out and possible placing yourself in danger, call 911 and make them aware of the situation.

Here are 3 tricks bad guys use to lure women from their cars. Continue reading

Glad You Threw that Bacon Away? Why it’s Important to Adhere to ‘Use By this Date’ Warnings

old food in fridge

*As hungry as I was, am, I just threw out a few slices of bacon that had a use by date of a week ago. So glad I paid attention this time. I generally stick with my Lowfat Berry Cereal in the red box — which I get from Trader Joe’s; but I was out and was about to opt for my second standby: turkey bacon. As good as those remaining two pieces looked (well, how good could they look raw, but still, I was hungry so I imagined them cooked…something told me, throw it away!).

Here’s why…

  • Harvard University scientists have found mice fed older meat had a 13% shorter lifespan than those fed younger meat
  • They claim it is because the set-in damage of the meat damaged the mice’s cells
  • Cellular damage is the reason we age, become weary and eventually die 

You might want to pay attention to this new study done by researchers at Harvard University. It sounds overly dramatic, but that doesn’t make their findings any less true. According to a Daily Mail article, their study shows there is no question that old ingredients could shorten our lifespan, and that old food is one of the factors contributing to this.

Original Star Trekker, George Takei, Says He Lost Virginity to an ‘Attractive’ Man at 13 (Listen)

George Takei

*Well, you can look at this a couple of ways, I guess. TMI (too much information); or should we be feeling some kind of way because this was an obvious crime of pedophelia? It’s weird, seeing as the “victim” is what, like, 80 years old now? Well…79.

Damn, George. What are we suppose to think?

The new Taco Bell spokesman, hey, a brother’s gotta do what a brother’s gotta do, right? The new Taco Bell spokesman is defending the stance of mutually agreed upon sex with a 19-year-old “pretty attractive” blonde camp counselor when he was only 13.

“I was kind of uh … I thought he was attractive,” Takei, who came out as gay decades ago, admits. Continue reading

We Suspected Angelina Jolie Was ‘Different’…Now Watch Her ‘N the Kids Eat Tarantulas and Scorpions!

Angelina, spiders
No mercy!!!

*A ‘difficult’ split from Brad Pitt doesn’t seem to have dampened Angelina Jolie’s sense of adventure. Recently she was captured in Cambodia with her children enjoying the delicacies of outdoor life by way of insects.

Yes. She actually gave her children lessons in the fine art of frying and then eating spiders and scorpions. If that has your mouth agape, listen to this: They seemed to really enjoy the taste.  Continue reading

‘Style Your Hair Like a White Officer’ Was Last Straw, Black Female Sgt. Files Civil Lawsuit

image002

*We smile through it, don’t we? I remember being so happy when I was once hired to work at a prominent Los Angeles radio station more than a decade ago. But from day one, (and subsequently two years later), the Caucasian GM walked by my desk each morning; where I sat right next to a white woman who held the same position as I, and spoke to her — yet ignored me. The story you are about to read took me right back to that time. Sgt. Qiana Brown was obviously being a “good sport” in the picture above even though she has continued to endure years of harassment, including racial and gender discrimination. It’s crap like THIS that makes the blood of Black folk and other well-meaning individuals just boil! To hear that a female veteran-turned-police officer-turned-sergeant and now mom has been through hell just because of her skin color makes me tremble with rage as I type this.

Ignorant heartless, souless, bastards!!!

Now Sgt. Qiana Brown of Hillside, New Jersey has been forced to file a civil law suit that spells out the treatment she has endured in detail. She has been denied promotions even though her test scores were among the highest; she was denied the right to express breast milk as she requested after having her baby; her hours were revised so that she could not spend time with her infant, and on and on and on.

‘Sick Selfies’ … What Have We Come To? Oh People, We Have Got to Do Better (Pictures)

I mean really, why would posing for a selfie with a homeless person be on your To Do list, dude. Get a f**king life!
I mean really, why would posing for a selfie with an unconscious homeless person be on your To Do list, dude. Get a f**king life!

*Hey, I like a good selfie of moi as much as the next person. Especially if its on a day where I’m “feeling myself.” You know, a woman feeling her beauty kind of day! That’s one thing. But dang, you’ve got to scratch your head and wonder what the phuck were some of these folks thinking when they decided to snap these pictures. Continue reading

Elvis Presley’s Daughter, Lisa Marie, Claims She is Broke as Hell! (Watch)

lisa-marie-presley-divorce-papers

*DaYUM! How does one go through $300 million dollars in one lifetime? I guess we will have to ask one Lisa Marie Presley, who as the sole heir of her father, Elvis Presley’s estate, estimated at the hefty amount, doesn’t appear to have a pot of her own to piss in today.

Can I repeat, daYUM!!!

Hey, it’s not like I went looking for this info. I actually stumbled across it and nearly caught a bug in my mouth because it stayed open for so long.

Presley actually laid the situation out in court papers because she is seeking a divorce from her FOURTH husband. Seems she went through several more after the short-lived marriage to Michael Jackson and then to Nicolas Cage.

But her dire financial straights is just one of the shocking items in the court documents. Equally shocking is the REASON Presley is seeking divorce from her musician husband, Michael Lockwood. According to the still aspiring singer, she found “inappropriate photos of children” on his computer.

Uh oh. Continue reading

‘Birth of a Movement’ Streaming on PBS for Limited Time Only

Birth of a Movement

*One hundred years ago, blackface and other offensive media representations of African Americans were not only common, but celebrated. Few cultural moments encapsulate this more fully than D.W. Griffith’s “The Birth of a Nation” (1915), a notoriously Ku Klux Klan-friendly reimagining of history.

“Birth of a Movement,” a new film now streaming on PBS, tells the story of William Monroe Trotter, an African-American newspaper editor and activist, who, along with the then newly-formed NAACP, waged a battle against the film. Together, we unleashed a conflict that still rages today about race relations, representation, and the power of Hollywood. Continue reading
