I was in a coffee shop yesterday and Stefan and I were talking to another couple when all of the sudden this guy got a suspicious look on his face and said, “Are you an actress?”. I laughed it off (especially since I had just rolled out of bed and was not wearing any makeup and was totally dressed down), and ask them who they thought I looked like. “Oh, we thought you may have been Diane Kruger!”.
I looked up Diane Kruger when I got home and I was actually surprised…We DO actually look similar. Diane Kruger and I are about the same age and we do have a similar face shape, cheek bones, jawline and facial spacing. Weird!
Well, at least I got mistaken for someone that is pretty. I used to get, “You look like Paris Hilton!” a lot when I was younger and that would just piss me off since I do not think Paris is attractive, at all.
Did you know that men are physically able to breast feed their children (or anyones child, really)? Men and women both have all the right equipment for breast feeding, which are: nipples, milk ducts, mammary tissue and hormones (specifically oxytocin and prolactin). So if a man wants to breast feed his kid, he simply needs to have the child suck on his nipple. The nipple stimulation will trigger the hormones to be releases, and like magic, Daddy is lactating…
Even weirder then the thought of men breast feeding their babies, is the total lack of studies on male lactation. It’s like there is a total cover up of the subject. Most of the information I have been able to find is “Yes, men can produce breast milk, but nothing else is known…” or “…no one knows if mens breast milk has the same nutritional value of womens…”, etc. So you’re telling me that we can grow human ears on the backs of lab rats, successfully transplant animal organs into humans, but we can’t find out the nutritional value of mens breast milk versus women? Come on…
Don’t get me wrong, I would be a little skeeved out if I saw a man breast feeding a child, but that’s just because we’ve all been taught that that is weird and unnatural. Nonetheless, I might have to try and milk Stefan with my breast pump…for the sake of science, of course!
Brazilian model, Mariana Bridi is fighting for her life after losing both hands and feet to an infections caused by an untreated urinary tract infection.
Mariana is 20 years old and began feeling ill in late December. When she visited the doctor, she was told that she had kidney stones, but when her condition did not improve, it was discovered that she had a simple UTI (urinary tract infection) that had developed into septicemia since it had gone untreated. Mariana’s hands, and then her feet had to be amputated as her condition deteriorated due to the lack of circulation caused by the septicemia. Unfortunately the outlook for Mariana does not look good and she could also lose her life.
How weird and sad is this story? A simple UTI and she could end up dieing from it.
…you build an elaborate tunnel system in your home, out of trash, get lost in said tunnel and die of dehydration?
“An eccentric loner is believed to have died of thirst after becoming trapped in a bizarre and intricate network of tunnels built from rubbish in his home.
Investigators believe the labyrinth was so complicated that Gordon Stewart, 74, may have become lost inside it. It is thought he may have died as a result of dehydration, after becoming unable to find his way out of the stinking mass.
Neighbours had become concerned that they had not seen him for several days and raised the alarm.”
Do you ever wonder what washed up porn stars do after they turn 40? I highly doubt Busty Heart saved up for retirement, because rather then retiring to live her golden years on a golf course in Leisure Town, instead she’s come up with a circus freak act: Using her saggy breast implants to crush objects. Like watermelons.
Do you ever stumble across “inventions” that make you think , “WTF?”. What do you think about an acrylic dome window for your fence so your dog can shove his face inside and take a look at the world? I don’t know about you, but this seems kind of silly…unless you and your dog live in a submarine. If not, then I would recommend walking your dog in order to “help satisfy their curiosity and make it possible for them to have a peek.”. Then you don’t have to cut a hole in your fence and attach this silly doggie window (that your dog probably won’t even use).
Wired Magazine is having a contest that requires you to destroy your most hated gadget and submit the photographic proof.
The funny thing is that this was brought to my attention (thanks Conner …), just as I was contemplating smashing my new Lexmark printer ala “Office Space”. At least now I have an extra excuse to destroy this POS…
Details to follow, but fireworks are legal in Puerto Rico. I might try and get this bitch airborn…
What would you do if you were driving drunk and/or high, slammed into a semi and then a wall and found that your girlfriend/passenger was unconscious?
Personally, if I was in that situation, I would do anything in my power to help my passenger. Well, Ricco Rodriquez found himself in that exact situation and instead of trying to resuscitate his girlfriend (and mother of his child), he assumed that she was probably dead, dragged her into the driver seat and blamed the crash on her.
Ricco Rodriguez is an Ultimate Fighter whom held the championship title in 2003 and got suspended in 2006 for drug use. Him and his girlfriend (who survived the crash) are still together. True love…
I bought a bunch of great stocking stuffers for Christmas this year, but unfortunately I didn’t make it home to stuff them in my friends/family members stockings. And by “great stocking stuffers”, I mean totally bizarre things that will probably make you hate me for stuffing your stocking with said items…
Conner and Dianne (Van the Man‘s parents) were visiting us in Puerto Rico, when my package of extra awesome stocking stuffers arrived. Conner was nice enough to be my guinea pig and test out a couple of the items…Like these Crick-ettes!
The good news is that the whole pack is only 9 calories and they come in three yummy flavors: salt and vinegar, cheese and bacon and sour cream and onion! The bad news is that they are actually dead crickets. Yum?
Conner said they didn’t taste bad at all. I guess I’ll have to find something grosser for his Christmas stocking next year…
