The anonymous blackmailers claim to have obtained the virus from Liberia and warn that if their demands aren’t met, Ebola will be unleashed in Prague and then to the rest […]
Last year, comedian Eliza Skinner made a short video standing up for the “slutty” Halloween costume. Her argument isn’t that the sexified costumes should be banned — on the contrary — she simply believes we need to stop using the word “slutty” to describe them. We should call them “sexy” because to call someone “slutty” based off […]

The guy is a major movie star and may very well be nominated for an Oscar this year for his role in Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher.” But, everyone has to start somewhere. Tatum started out as an 18-year-old exotic dancer in Male Encounter, a […]

We’ve all seen that one batch of wedding photos that just blows us away. Not too long ago, we were introduced to a couple who took advantage of a potentially day-ruining thunderstorm and turned it into a positive when their engagement photos came out even better thanks to the rain. Then there was that Japanese […]
There isn’t a vaccine for Ebola, but should one emerge, we may have the Bush Administration to thank. Former Vice President Dick Cheney became very fearful of bioterrorism after 9/11, when rumors surfaced that anthrax was going to be hidden in our mail. Later that year, Cheney asked Congress to devote billions of dollars to […]
