so, this woman had tried EVERYTHING to make lots of bacon for lots of people–“microwaving it, broiling it, and I even bought the precooked stuff so all I had to do was heat it up. None of these ways were quicker or easier and they certainly left a huge mess for me to clean up not to mention almost starting an oven fire one time.
But finally, I found a way that is quick, simple, and easy to clean up.”
so what did she finally try? what ingenius method of cooking bacon did she FINALLY stumble upon?
omfg, you have got to be kidding me. that’s a frying pan, right?
p.s. thanks to cupcake heartbreak for the link to the blog. frightening.

the Interdisciplinary Research Center on Family Violence and Violence Against Women was looking to do a study on the effects of pornography on sexuality. for the control group, naturally the researchers needed a group of men in their 20s who had never watched or seen porn before. and, as you’ve doubtless figured out, they found that there are none. at least, not in North America. you can find a little more about the story here.

i wish i could say i was this enlightened when i was 10. i wish i could say i knew more people over the age of 25 who were this aware of their political surroundings, the practical meanings of political buzzwords and the consequences of political actions. but this guy can serve as an inspiration for those chuckleheads and as a ray of hope for a generation i have considered lost since the advent of faux-lebrities, ‘tween “sexting,” 15-year-old hipsters and miley cyrus.
but if i were a 10-year-old girl in Arkansas (god forbid), i’d be in love with Will Phillips. he got in trouble at school for choosing not to stand a recite the Pledge of Allegiance with the rest of his class. in this age of knee-jerk “patriotism,” some may question why i’m extolling the virtues of a 10-year-old punk who’s making trouble in his fifth-grade class. well, that’s because he refuses to pledge allegiance to a country with discriminatory policies against a portion of its citizens: teh gheyz. yup, Will’s a 10-year-old gay rights advocate. and not just because his parents are allies. he actually understands what the words of the Pledge say and sees the inconsistencies between “liberty and juatice for all” and the prohibition of same-sex marriage and other laws regarding (or without regard for) the LGBTQI community.
more about him here.

-jb- showed me this a while ago, but just recently it has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity among our circle of friends. its combination of the Classic Underdog storyline, along with the ambiguity of the true nature of Eli, comic relief from the judges’ panel and the cussing (which always ups the entertainment value) makes it an instant classic.
-jb-‘s text to me this morning: “i deeeeeeeeud it”

i know there’s a joke about the connection between the conservative baby-machines that shop at Wal-Mart and the call here, but my weekend brain isn’t quite making the connection here…

The NSA forwarded this article to me about a kid in Oregon that got struck by lightning. People getting hit by lightning, suffering severe burns and a perforated ear drum, and being scarred mentally for life is no laughing matter.
The innocent school picture accompanying the article IS hilarious. Click to see the zoomed in image after the jump. Then let’s talk about IRONY. Continue reading →

i hate High School Musical. all 3 or 8 or 11 of them. whatever. no, i’ve never seen them, and i love musicals. but those productions are just overblown corporate marketing synergy projects aimed at the 8-18 girl demographic. they have no redeeming artistic value, the musical numbers suck goat nuts, the acting is abhorrent and they’re not creative at all. i could give a shit about any of the people involved in these despicable things.
but the Zac Efron phenomenon has taken on a life of its own. people LOVE this guy. they love him with an intensity and a fervor last seen with the advent of the Backstreet Boys or NSYNC. they have no idea what this guy’s really like because he’s purely a product of the Disney franchise, so what they know of him is what he looks like. and i’ll give them that, he’s a good-looking guy. but i could consider my life a success if i never saw his face again.
