...as Bowie plays in the background.
It’s 3am, amd I can’t sleep. A bit drowsy, but still unable to fall asleep, I decided to turn on PBS for some background noise, thinking that would help me get some rest. It didn’t work. Instead, I shot up in bed, drawn in by a.very unique show.
“Marie Holmes made national headlines last February after winning a massive $188 million Powerball jackpot. After taxes, she walked away with an $88 million lump sum payment.”
China’s holding a cremation constest to crown the countrys best cremator, in an effort to destigmatize the cremation process. The government hopes this method of dealing with the deceased will eventually gain popularity in the over crowded country. From what I gathered, despite the fact that half of the Chinese…
A few days ago I did a piece on how to save oodles of money(hundred$ in my case) when purchasing prescription glasses (even with insurance). Today I’m going to share a tip on prescription medication.
I have an informal poll. How many readers spit in public? And if so, why?
Sorry for coming off like those annoying Gawker ads disguised as actual articles. But I recently lost my job(don’t worry start a new one on Jan 4th). And being low on funds cause you to think of creative ways to save money. Plus some of you may be looking for ways to cut spending due to holiday spending.
(Here’s a last minute, disjointed write-up about the holidays, and what it’s doing to me emotionally. It was rushed, but cathartic. Warning...it may be tl;dr for some)
*Note #1: Due to the overcrowded field of 1000+ entrants for the Pissing Contest I decided to post to Crosstalk. While technically this isn’t the craziest lie I ever believed, it was the first time I realized people actually do lie to little kids*
I usually don’t get too excited about Google’s Doodles(especially the static Doodles), but I have to admit this has to be among their Top 10 Doodles Of All Time. The interactive Doodles are always a fan favorite. But I’m almost certain that even those who aren’t really into Doodles, or Classical music for that matter,…
I’m sure it’s obvious to any liberal like myself, that the inital charges which resulted in the defendant’s probation are extremely serious, and violent in nature. But I think 60 years goes above, and beyond what’s considered reasonable in sentencing guidelines, even for a conservative state like Florida. The sentence…
I wasn’t sure where else to post this since I missed the open thread on Life Hacker. But if anyone care to suggest a more suitable place, feel free to let me know.
I was having a rough go at it this weekend. Custody issues I’m going through made me want to end all. So I shared what was going on in the piece about Sinead O’Connor’s attempted suicide.
This is to make you laugh.
(sorry if this is tl;dr, but it all just came pouring out if me, and didn’t have much time to edit for length and clarity)
Most of Chicago police force ordered into uniform as city prepares for video release.
Do we live in China now? I realize this was done by mistake...but still.
The headline pretty much sums it up. It’s bound to get posted on Jezebel by morning, but I thought I’d post it now for us insomniacs.
...and came across this gem.
