    Sometimes there’s just nothing left for you to do but dance. Over the past few weeks, the government shutdown has caused aggravation at airports around the country. Earlier this week, Katie Gould, a law student, was stranded at Hartsfield Jackson Atlanta International Airport....{snip} It was four hours until Gould could board the next flight to Milwaukee. Instead of killing time watching TV like she normally does, Gould turned the delay into an opportunity.

    It’s official: Megyn Kelly has parted ways with NBC, three months after being yanked off the air. Kelly and the Peacock network have officially reached an exit agreement, according to CNN, that will see the anchor walk away with every penny of her original three-year, $69 million contract, even though she’s leaving more than a year early. (Kelly joined the network in 2017 after a successful stint at Fox News.) “The parties have resolved their differences, and Megyn Kelly is no longer an employee of NBC,” the network said in a statement on Friday night. Kelly’s daytime talk show Megyn...

    An Ohio substitute teacher was arrested Friday after allegedly performing a sex act on himself while students were present. Tracey J. Abram, a substitute teacher at Creekside Middle School in Fairfield, Ohio was charged with public-degree indecency after students reported suspicious behavior “behind that teacher’s desk,” the Journal-News reports. Abrams was removed from the classroom by someone who, I’m sure, said: “Ayyyy... Don’t touch me, man!” Abrams had served as a substitute in multiple school districts and had passed a background check, school officials said. He was booked and released on his own recognizance and told not to come into...

    AMAZON boss Jeff Bezos sent a photograph of his "big" willy to lover Lauren Sanchez in a string of sex text messages, it's been claimed. The tech tycoon - worth a staggering $140bn - also reportedly told the married TV star he was "full of love" for her and wanted to wake her up "and not be quite so gentle" with her. In addition to shirtless photographs, he is also said to have sent Sanchez an "unsparing" photograph of his genitals and 'sexts' which were apparently too graphic to publish, according to a National Enquirer source speaking to the New...

    A Pennsylvania wedding DJ admitted Tuesday to raping and strangling to death an elementary school teacher whose 26-year cold case was solved with help from DNA submitted to a genealogy database by his half-sister. In court Tuesday, Raymond Rowe, 50, pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in the death of 25-year-old Christy Mirack, online court records show. Rowe went by the stage name DJ Freez and claimed on his now-defunct website he worked as a DJ for celebrities such as Paris Hilton and Brooke Hogan, as well as at events featuring Sting, The Eagles and Kenny Kravitz. He was sentenced to life in prison without...
  • 2026 (Count Vlad does the future)

    01/11/2019 4:55:27 PM PST · by BEJ
    This is something futurist from Count Vlad. The music and imagery is an amalgam of old and modern that becomes futuristic (almost like in Blade Runner). The past and future are connected as the Dragon eats its tail -- the Ouroboros. I hope you enjoy the music and, if you like it, please subscribe to the Youtube channel.

    Kids today know plenty, whether it's how to become a social media star on YouTube or how to navigate Snapchat. (It's a snap.) And at every step, their cellphones are close at hand, part extra appendage, part security blanket. But cellphones are one thing. And rotary dial models, quite another. Two adorably clueless 17-year-olds, Jake and Kyle Bumstead of Illinois, got four minutes to dial a number on a rotary phone. It was their first time using such a relic from a bygone age. Imagine asking an English speaker to parse some Egyptian hieroglyphs. In this case, it took the...

    Full Title: "Fresh blow for Mars missions as researchers find long-duration space travel causes crippling back pain that can last for up to four YEARS" The changes in muscle composition are still present up to four years after long-duration spaceflight, according to the new research by Katelyn Burkhart, MS, of Massachusetts Institute of Technology and colleagues. They write, 'Spaceflight-induced changes in paraspinal muscle morphology may contribute to back pain commonly reported in astronauts.' The researchers analyzed computed tomography (CT) scans of the lumbar (lower) spine in 17 astronauts and cosmonauts who flew missions on the International Space Station. Scans obtained...

    ... the Internet retail giant is joining the growing list of companies that want to build what’s essentially a Netflix for video games. Microsoft and Google are likewise interested in this, and what Amazon also wants to develop is a version of what Sony also has via PlayStation Now — a way to stream games instead of customers having to fork over the money to buy and download them. Talks have already begun between Amazon and game publishers for this streaming outlet that, at the earliest, would be live sometime next year. And it should go without saying, services like...

    The girl was walking home from a convenience store in Lake Forest on Oct. 21, 1995, when she was attacked from behind and pulled into a wooded area inside Serrano Creek Park, officials said. She was violently raped and forced to perform sex acts on the suspect. The 9-year-old victim ran home naked and told her parents, who then reported the assault to law enforcement, officials said. The adult victim was also attacked randomly as she was jogging in Mission Viejo when authorities say the suspect assaulted her. The cold cases were solved using “similar tactics” as those used to...

    Federal Goverment Workers have only themselves to blame for their current negative financial position. If you had acted immediately by going after Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer & the entire Democrat Party, you never would have had your paychecks missing. Heed my words...going after POTUS, Trump will gain you nothing, not one thing!!! I mean how dumb can you folks be? Nancy Pelosi was getting Botox treatments in Hawaii on vacation, drinking "MAI-TAIs", while you folks were payless. At least, POTUS, Trump, cared enough about you folks to stay in the White House over the holidays...not so with your Democrat allies...

    While stitching the hand of a 75 year old farmer, whose hand was caught in the squeeze gate while working cattle, the doctor struck up a conversation with the old man. Eventually, the topic got around to politicians and their role as our leaders. The old farmer said, "Well, as I see it, most politicians are 'Post Turtles'." Not being familiar with the term, the doctor asked him what a 'post turtle was. The old farmer [rancher] said, "When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a...

    Freshman lawmaker Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez dropped a hammer on Joe Lieberman on Thursday, after the onetime Democratic vice presidential candidate said he feared her brand of high-tax socialism could doom the party's chances for long-term dominance in Congress. 'I certainly hope she’s not the future and I don’t believe she is,' Lieberman said in a Fox Business Network interview. He retired in 2013 after serving 24 years in the U.S. Senate. The 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez retweeted the 76-year-old's sentiment with a four-word rejoinder: 'New party, who dis?' 'Who dis?' is a common response to a text message from an unknown number. Among...
