French authorities put on display the 1.3 tons of cocaine discovered on an inbound flight to Paris’ Charles de Gaulle airport from Venezuela, earlier this month, packed in 30 suitcases. And we cannot lie to y’all, our noses sniffled a bit. The lot confiscated had an estimated street value of approximately $270 million, reported Sky News. None of the suitcases were attributed to any of the passengers aboard flight originating in Caracas.
What you are looking at in the above handout photo is pure untouched snow! As in the kind you must take to chipping off and grinding prior to inhaling like a hoover – or so we are told. Read the rest of this entry »
Strange but true stories always get our attention. Case and point: Rhode Island bear John Matson Jr., 46, being mauled by an Alaskan brown bear! We stumbled upon this story and we had to stop and go looking further into the story.
Reports have Matson, the thick son of a New England politico, accompanied by a companion hunter and a tour guide, in Alaska, injuring a bear that was minding its own business eating some berries – you know winter is imminent – and then waiting some 90-minutes, presumably for it to lay down and let go, to follow the injured majestic creature into a thicket of shrubs only to find that said brown bear held some resentment at not only being injured while minding its own business but now being pursued while licking its wounds and mauled Matson’s fat ass.

Mukesh Singh, Vinay Sharma, Akshay Thakur and Pawan Gupta were found guilty of the New Delhi gang rape of a 23-year-old female student who later died of her injuries. The four had pleaded not guilty.

Here’s a modern 21st century twist on an old practice. Iowa pastor Brent Girouex is accused of having sex with teen boys as young as 14-years-old to cure them of homosexuality, reports states. He is presently charged with 60 counts of “suspicion of sexual exploitation by a counselor or therapist.”
But the story gets bigger…. Read the rest of this entry »
There is something deeply hurtful going on in Russia present day. Their anti-gay propaganda laws are, by far, the most extreme homophobia being exercised by a supposed developed country.
And for those who believe that it only affects the locals – which in and of itself is an atrocity – it doesn’t. It applies to foreigners as well.
Doubt this? Google the recent arrest of Dutch tourist/protesters.
And with the 2014 Olympics slated to take place in – wait for it – Russia, we are left with mouth gaping open that anyone – Olympian, coach or sponsors – would commit their support to an ass-backward country fueling such hateful practices.
Well lo and behold, their is a petition presently making the rounds looking to ban Elena Mizulina and Vitaly Milonov from acquiring visas required to enter the USA. And as we have already put down our John Hancock, we thought to share the petition with y’all in the hopes of helping the petition reach its 100k required number to go before John Kerry.
Help send a message to these two spiteful individual, as well as Putin himself, that says ‘it’s not OK to exercise such blatant homophobia!’
Mayoral hopeful Anthony Weiner can’t catch a break these days. He threw himself into the political trenches thinking that his sex-ting scandal – which caused his
Senate House of Representatives seat resignation – was a thing of the past and that redemption was at hand with his dream of becoming the next NYC Mayor fast on the horizon, but NO! Lo-and-behold some mid-west skank surfaces with copies of their inappropriate texting and pic exchange, all in a bid to snatch her fifteen minutes of ‘I’ve been victimized’ headlines, and screws up his lead in the preliminary poles.
she that a bitch? Read the rest of this entry »
It has taken us a few days to process the not guilty verdict in the George Zimmerman trial. But no matter how hard we try to wrap ourselves around the ruling, we always arrive at shock. Read the rest of this entry »
Sometimes you push on your shutter without knowing exactly who you are shooting. Case and point… We stopped in on the God’s Pocket film set and were attracted to a skinny male disheveled figure traipsing about and thought to do a few test shots on him. What can we tell y’all, we like them thin! Lo and behold, its none other than Caleb Landry Jones of X Men: First Class and No Country for Old Men fame.
Here is the face of bigotry – on gay pride no less! Two men on a Queens-bound F train were recorded making homophobic slurs at a group of gay youths after they boarded the train. A concerned rider became concerned and documented the altercation – at the expense of her own safety. When the two homophobes realized they were being recorded by the female bystander one of them is seen walking towards her and lunging at her in attempt to take her phone to destroy the evidence. Although the ER breaks were pulled the duo managed to get away at the Roosevelt Ave stop.
The identification of the two bigoted cowards is unknown.
If you recognize either of these two lovely individuals call the police and report their small dick asses.
Congratulations to San Franciscans on having Proposition 8 overturned! Happy pride to y’all.
If you were wondering how the NYC Citi-Bikes program is going so far, wonder no more. It seems to be peddling along on the city streets with smiles and laughter. We parked our vehicular West of 9th Avenue and caught a group of ladies traversing Manhattan on board of the controversial two wheel’ers having a grand ole time – simply couldn’t resist a candid snap with our iPhone.

If you haven’t had the opportunity to witness it first hand allow us to introduce you to the Citibank sponsored bike racks that has half of NY-kers up in a tizzy. Seriously, we kid you not. One of our friends, who we will only identify as JM gets so heated over the topic its as if she is going to burst something. The racks have swooped in and appropriated what many nay-say’ers shout is flagrant misuse of viable space in the Big Apple that is all but chewed up with little left in the way of commodity.
