*I sure hope you won’t judge me too harshly here. But wouldn’t you be even slightly interested in knowing exactly who would show up at your final farewell? What better way to know than to have it before you’re gone. Don’t you wonder if nosey ass “Brenda” who never did like you anyway would all of a sudden get a rush of sorrow and come? Or what about Miranda? She’d probably be the first one screaming and hollerin’ with her phony ass. Then there’s your ex, Billy – who would probably have the nerve to show up with his new woman because she’s probably as insecure as he is; and she wants to see that you’re dead with her own eyes.
That’s why you probably shouldn’t throw your nose up at the idea of planning your party now. While you can be here to appreciate it, and it can be done on your own terms.
Like Karil Harrington did.
Harrington, a nurse, may be on to something. She staged one helluva party for herself called, “Rave Before the Grave.” And I hear they partied hard. No tears were allowed. And, although the attendees knew their loved one would soon be gone, they were glad she was there with them to hear them say goodbye.
* Did you know that by the year 2030, its predicted that cancer will be the leading cause of death in the United States? That’s nothing to play with. And many of our friends and loved ones are living with the disease or have died from it – which makes it hard to believe that there are people out there who are actually using the devastating disease to scam; pretending to have cancer so that others’ will feel sorry for them, and blindly give them money. Even strangers who have never laid eyes on these people go to online fundraising sites where they read heartbreaking stories and reach into their pockets without a second thought. And these scams have brought in tens of thousands of dollars on these sites…telling lies about having cancer.
Let’s put a face to some of these jokers. See them and read their stories. Continue reading →
*A man went to great lengths so he wouldn’t get caught for scams that included swindling an elderly man he cared for out of his life’s savings. Alan Knight made folks believe he was quadriplegic – then they discovered him walking around in a grocery store.
According to The Guardian, Knight, 47, spent two years faking seizures that sometimes left him comatose .
But on Tuesday all of his scheming came to a halt as he pleaded guilty to 19 counts of fraud, theft and forgery charges in Swansea Crown Court. Continue reading →
*Chances are, if you wear your hair natural, you’ve at least heard about beauty blogger, Meechy Monroe. She is a rare breed of woman, who built a huge following online because of her empathy for women who wanted to leave the chemical behind and return to their nappy roots.
And she did it beautifully, too.
She utilized her blog, social media and YouTube channels to win tens of thousands of followers who watched and listened to her with baited breath as she twisted, twirled, patted and puffed her signature, textured Afro into an elegant, bouffant-esque style. Her YouTube channel piled up more than 2.4 million views. She gained 36,000 followers on Instagram and reached thousands more through Twitter and her blog.
So you can imagine the heartbreak her fans felt when they learned that the 29-year-old West Pullman resident had been diagnosed with cancer. Continue reading →
*Don’t look too bad on the outside, huh? With the price of real estate sky-rocketing all over the place, you may want to seriously consider taking this man up on his offer to swap his decrepit house in Detroit for an iPhone 6.
The house has three bedrooms, a basement and garden. But as you can imagine, its in pretty bad shape. For starters, it has no front door and broken windows.
The house has been on the market in the bankrupt city, but so far nobody has come forward to buy.
*Hey, I’ll be the first person to raise a brow at this accusation, but nevertheless, its a claim one Canadian man made against a Fredericton, New Brunswick, McDonald’s in that country.
Haven’t you heard Mickey Dee’s has the best coffee ever? Apparently, Ron Morais did too. He told the CBC that he was nearly at the bottom of his cup, when he decided to take the lid off and gulp the rest of it down – but stopped short because “there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse.”

*The answer to that headline question is probably “absolutely not!” Seeing as nuts is no longer a part of the subject’s anatomy. Have you ever heard the term “nullo?” Well, since we know that we can learn something new every day. This is today’s “new thing.” A “nullo” is a man who has removed his sex organ. And the man in this story that decided to become one recently opened up about why he decided to cut his penis and testicles off and become a “nullo.”
Of course there’s the option to take a look at the bottom of this story.
He goes by the name “Gelding,” and he’s not surprised that people think he’s a bit strange once they learn what he’s done. Continue reading →
