well gang, we’ve made it through another mid-week hump — so let’s take a few moments to appreciate that small victory.
a few more since i do love that booty.
happy hump day!
good to know that “Jupiter Ascending” isn’t dead… i remember getting kind of excited about going to see it, and then it kind of disappeared — but apparantly it wasn’t pulled or anything, but just delayed until 2015 (for whatever reason)… here’s to hoping the wait’s worth it.
also saw this latest trailer for “Interstellar” the other day on tv and was like “daaaaamn”, the more i see the better it’s starting to look… but then again, i can never get enough of some good sci-fi movies.
i’ll go see pretty much anything by christopher nolan at this point, though… he’s right up there with peter jackson in my book.
p.s. can’t wait for the new hobbit.
Members of Islamic State recently received an unexpected surprise from the Iraqi military’s inexperienced pilots: an airdrop of food, water and ammunition.
A senior security official told NBC News on Tuesday that an investigation has been launched into how supplies meant for Iraqi soldiers fighting the terrorist group were dropped at the wrong location in Anbar province.
“Those soldiers were in deadly need of these supplies, but because of the wrong plans of the commanders in the Iraqi army and lack of experience of the pilots, we in a way or another helped [Islamic State] fighters to kill our soldiers,” said Hakim Al-Zamili, a Sadrist lawmaker in the Iraqi parliament, NBC reported.
ooops! now that’s kind of embarassing.
The Secret Service has taken a bad rap in recent years for banging prostitutes and getting wasted and not shooting Justin Bieber and burying him quietly in the Mojave desert. In recent weeks, knife wielding crazies seem to be trespassing into the White House with about as much difficulty as sneaking into a high school kegger. It’s possible the bell rang at Secret Service class before the teacher could answer, ‘And then what do we do if somebody climbs over the fence?’
A new report states the President rode an elevator earlier this month with an armed security contractor with three criminal convictions who was antagonizing the President and his entourage with his cell phone camera. People with criminal convictions are not supposed to be anywhere near the President, unless of course they’re members of his cabinet or Congressmen visiting from The Hill. And I’m pretty sure that rule goes double for convicted criminals carrying concealed hand guns.
It’s unclear how the Secret Service allowed this guy to share an elevator ride with the Commander in Chief. Maybe he slipped one of the agents some Taylor Swift tickets for his daughter in exchange for the once in a lifetime experience of going up and down with Barack. The President has to be a bit concerned with how poorly his human shield is protecting him these days. If I were Obama I’d swear in a a band of trained ninjas to shadow me in case my first line of defense starts tipping sizzurp and falling asleep on watch again. These wackadoos trying to get Obama might slip past a few hungover Federal agents, but they’re not surviving the throwing stars and blow guns.
i’m not sure why the director of the secret service hasn’t just stepped down to “spend more time with the family” or something by now… the secret service bang’n prostitutes abroad, guys jumping the fence left and right, and now this? if nothing else, Obama’s wife and daughters are there, so not sure why he hasn’t just fired the director… hell, i would… but maybe he’s waiting for some poll results, or weighing the political side of it all — i dunno.
If you’ve ever wondered what 8,000 calories in a single meal looks like, here’s your chance to take a look. (Disclaimer: It’s not pretty.)
The fine people at Bear Grills cafe, a British joint with a knack for publicity, say their 7 pound “Hibernator” breakfast platter is so much food — and calories — they’ll pay you £100 ($162) to finish it. They won’t, however, pay your medical bills.
According to the Daily Mail, the cafe’s owners make anyone brave enough to try “The Hibernator Challenge” sign away the right to sue if something goes wrong.
And at 8,000 calories a pop, the meal is not for the faint of heart — quite literally.
whoa… thought you might find something like this somewhere out in the midwest here in the states, but i guess the british are getting in on it now too. heh.
aside from the gigantic plate of food, i can’t even imagine actually finishing that enormous shake… holy hell, mang.
proof that engineers are not purely functional…

even though i was pretty heads-down and busy at work yesterday, i did see some news about “windows 10″ and at first i thought it was some kind of internet meme or joke going around… but nope, i guess that microsoft decided to just skip a major version number and go straight from Windows 8 to Windows 10 next year.
ummm, yeah… that’s not weird at all.
p.s. that start menu looks effin huge!
Atlanta (CNN) — A patient being treated at a Dallas hospital is the first person diagnosed with Ebola in the United States, health officials announced Tuesday.
The unidentified man left Liberia on September 19 and arrived in the United States on September 20, said Dr. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
At that time, the individual did not have symptoms. “But four or five days later,” he began to exhibit them, Frieden said. The individual was hospitalized and isolated Sunday at Texas Health Presbyterian Hospital.
Citing privacy concerns, health officials declined to release any details about how the patient contracted the virus or how he was being treated.
damn man, isn’t this exactly what people have been worried about since all the news broke about this latest ebola virus breakout in west africa?!?
i really hope the CDC, and everybody else involved down there, are on their a-game as far as tracking everybody down that’s come in contact with this person… on the upside, thank god this isn’t an airborne virus — that shit is truly scary stuff.
“I’m sure Barack Obama will handle this Ebola outbreak with the competence and transparency we’ve come to expect.”

speaking of big titties and jordan carver…
Big Boob Catfight: Jordan Carver Vs. Melanie Mueller
i love seeing a big titty chick running — no matter how old i get, i highly doubt that’s ever going to change… but seeing two big titty chicks fighting in the ring just might come in at a close second.
Kansas City Chiefs safety Husain Abdullah was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct Monday night when he went to his knees in prayer to celebrate a Tom Brady pick-six.
Abdullah—a devout Muslim who sat out the 2012-13 season to make Hajj, the Islamic pilgrimage to Mecca—shouldn’t have been penalized.
If there is any doubt as to what Abdullah was doing, here’s his brother and former NFL safety Hamza Abdullah on Twitter.
man, i must’ve missed that, probably cuz the game was quickly looking to be a blowout and i was zoning in and out… watched Gotham, then some of the game, then switched to The Blacklist — checking back on the game during the commercials.
damn, the patriots were looking pretty bad last night… not a fan of the chiefs, and was really hoping the patriots would roll in there and pull out a bit of a miracle… oh well.
i don’t know about you guys, but i’m getting pretty tired of seeing my twitter feed constantly being blown up with news, links, screenshots etc etc about ello.
anybody got an invite? just kidding. lol
Drone Shows Thousands Filling Hong Kong Streets
lots of news about the protests going on over in hong kong this past week — i think lots of people were
hoping expecing another tiananmen square… either way, beautiful aerial video.
speaking of drones over hong kong reminded me of john oliver’s rant on drones the other night on HBO.
i got a call yesterday afternoon from the local AT&T store i pre-ordered the iPhone 6 from a couple weeks back, saying that it was in and i could pick it up… oh hell yeah! i was happily surprised, since they initially told me it’d be like mid-october before they got it in — so i stopped by on my way home lastnight and got my new iPhone 6.
of course, nothing ever seems to go super smoothly for me of late, so why would it be any different at the AT&T store? i got there, expecting to simply walk in and be in-out in 20 minutes or so… shiiiit, what the hell was i thinking… got there around 7:30pm and didn’t leave until 9:20pm — had to wait around in the effin lobby for an hour while they took care of all these other people… ugh… terrible.
but it was worth it in the end.
feels like everybody’s already gotten one, and there’s been a shitload of articles/blog posts/videos about it… but for me, i was just looking forward to the bump in the screen size — and right away, i was loving it… the screen looks great to me, it’s fast and snappy, and it’s a small thing… but i love having the power button on the top-right side now, instead of up at the top.
i’m actually really liking the soft rounded edges to it, too.
i started playing around with a couple theme ideas the other week, and here’s one that i was diggin’ on… feels like everythings been getting bigger and bigger over the past year or two, so i figure why not do the opposite? instead of blowing it out and uploading images that are at least 900/1024 pixels wide, i’m going back to a much more narrow viewport — more of a “mobile only” blog design.
the only downside is that i lost the comments on the side… i started to mess around with an alternate way of showing/sliding in the comments on the main page, but ran into a bit of snag late lastnight… so i’ll keep it on the back-burner for now — to be honest, i don’t get the amount of comments that i used to at times, with the majority of blog posts getting maybe 1 or 2 comments, or none at all… so with that being the case, i figure it’s okay to click the “comment” link to leave a comment.
i might try giving it another try later this week, but we’ll see.
anywho, this blog has always been a playground.
just saw a tweet that the final episode of “Breaking Bad” aired one year ago today.
hard to believe it’s already been a year, y’know?!?!
holy hell, mang.
speaking of “leaks”, i sure wouldn’t mind seeing more of emily ratajkowski in all her gorgeously naked beauty.
seriously, she’s so fucking hot.
Jennifer Lawrence has been targeted yet again in the latest online nude photo leak, with 55 more naked images of the actor hitting the Internet.
In what is being labelled as “The Fappening 3″ by the Reddit and 4chan communities, Lawrence is among a group of celebrities, including supermodel Cara Delevingne and fellow actor Anna Kendrick, who have had private photos leaked.
While Delevingne and Lawrence are naked in the pictures, Kendrick is clothed in all of her 87 leaked pictures. However, there are several images that show the actor partying away in some pretty revealing outfits.
Other identities hit by the leak include American Olympic gold medalist Misty May Treanor and actors Alexandra Chando, Kelli Garner and Lauren O’Neil.
i have no problem with seeing some nude photos of hot celebrity babes, especially onces like jennifer lawrence — but this is getting kind of ridiculous… and really starting to almost seem like it’s intentional… well, maybe that’s the wrong word for it, but you know what i mean.
well gang, it’s definitely about that time… by which i mean it’s late friday afternoon, it’s nice and sunny outside, traffic is already stacking up, and the weekend is calling my name loud and clear… so with that in mind, here’s another quickie before i jet — left or right?
** don’t be douchebag, make a choice.
edit: top (left) or bottom (right) with new theme.
have a great day weekend, mang!
A disgruntled, fired factory worker — who had tried to convert his colleagues to Islam — used a 10-inch work knife to stab and behead a female employee, law enforcement sources told The Post on Friday.
The FBI is investigating Thursday’s brutal murder at Vaughan Foods in the Oklahoma town of Moore due to the nature of the attack, which comes on the heels of recently released ISIS beheading videos.
Alton Nolen, 30, had been fired from the food distribution company early Thursday and drove back to the plant around 4 p.m., according to sources.
He barged in and attacked the first person he saw — 54-year-old Colleen Hufford — stabbing her in the back and cutting her head off with a knife he had used while working at the plant.
whoa, holy shit..! i was just flip’n through my twitter feed on my phone and saw this headline about a woman being beheaded by some black muslim dude — in oklahoma.
seriously, what the fuck is going on?!?
