-- A new director at the Toledo Area Humane Society. Adopt if you can! The new executive director of the Toledo Area Humane Society has spent the last 20 years as a volunteer or board member for various South Carolina and Florida-based animal welfare organizations including the Animal Refuge Center, Friends of Strays, Saint Bernard Rescue, and Great Dane Rescue of Florida.
-- Wizards don't beat the Pistons, but their announcer thinks they did. Alright, it's a tough angle for us all, and the way the net swished when the shot came down, yes, it looked like the ball went in for a game winner. Alas, it didn't touch the rim, in a bad way. We've all, including myself, had our share of mistakes and mis-calls in the broadcasting business, but this guy should've realized if his call was accurate, the wrong team was cheering.
-- Know why I'm not suing Budweiser, because of the exact reason people are suing Budweiser. Huh? I don't drink it for the exact reason people are going after them. Yes, I can be a snobby beer drinker. Can't remember the last time I had a basic Coors, Bud, Miller, insert domestic beer. Howwwwwwwever, Bud Light Lime-A-Rita's and the BL Platinum are worthwhile beverages!
Beer drinkers have filed class-action lawsuits against the makers of Budweiser and Michelob in several states, claiming that the beers are watered down below their stated alcohol content of approximately 5 percent. Beer can be made at many different strengths, with some craft brews surpassing 20 percent alcohol by volume. Why are the most popular American beers so weak?
Because they’re the next best thing to prohibition.
-- Immoral teen queens and comets crashing into Earth don't really irk me. Unimaginably large black holes bring me fear though. Black holes grow by consuming matter, and in the centers of galaxies they can grow to huge size. In the gorgeous barred spiral galaxy NGC 1365 (shown below), there’s one lurking in the core that has about two million times as much mass as our Sun. Not only that, it is actively gobbling down matter, and that allows us to measure some interesting properties of this cosmic monster, including its spin.
-- I'd never count Google out, but Glass doesn't seem like the next phase of mobile devices that will be in ubiqituous use. I'd never wear something like that on my head. Never. On Wednesday, Google's Sergey Brin took to the stage at TED 2013 wearing his pair to discuss his, ahem, vision for Google Glass. His appearance came on the day when applications were due in a contest to win the right to buy one of the $1,500 devices.
-- This is obviously not a Kiss artist, but I think it's pretty comical (but justified knowing his addiction laden past) that a band fired it's face and lead singer.
Singer Scott Weiland said he learned that he'd been fired by the Stone Temple Pilots when the band released a one-sentence statement to the media Wednesday.
"I learned of my supposed `termination' from Stone Temple Pilots this morning by reading about it in the press," he wrote in a statement. "Not sure how I can be `terminated' from a band that I founded, fronted and co-wrote many of its biggest hits, but that's something for the lawyers to figure out."
-- Kesha wrote a song about her vagina,which began as a song about her car. Of course she did. “It began as a song about my car, which is a gold Trans Am, and it works about 40 per cent of the time.
“I don't have another car because I love that one so much.
“But then like all great pop it became a metaphor for something else - my p****.
-- A porn site has offered former Miss Teen Delaware $250K to do exactly what you'd expect them to offer. That's a viable college education right there...do you even consider it? Times ARE tough, right? Enough to obliterate your morality? Maybe.
-- Worst criminal ever. Two middle-school Girl Scouts and their troop leader, Lynette Baker, were closing up their booth when a man pretended to be a last-minute customer. Instead, he snatched their money box, stealing nearly $300.
-- I like this Pop Candy blog from USA Today, butttttttttt - and sorry for being so hyper critical, but how does a blogger take a sick day!? That's one nasty cold or virus. Get well. What's a job where you can never take a sick day?
