Hey! You! Do you like crochet? Knitting? Cross stitch? What about sewing? Well, on March 28, 2020 at 1 pm CST we’re doing a virtual Stitch N Bitch. Free. Register here. Hurry – limited to 100 folks. Registration prevents Zoom bombing. No COVID talk. We get enough of that on the daily.
Picture this: your kid plays Fortnite…a game that allows in-game purchases to be made. You know, like most online games now…including games on Facebook and games on Pogo. Even I still play on Pogo. Her son, a teenager, uses her debit card, which is linked to his PS4 account to rack up $1,000 in purchases in a single night. But who is mom holding responsible?Continue reading
Because he’s really worried the women-folk will begin stock-piling tampons!
Look, yall, even before I had a partial hysterectomy 18 years ago, I had other things to worry about than stock-piling tampons. I mean, even back then we had those crazy coupon people who could by shit for pennies or get money back from the store and leave with two basket loads of shit.Continue reading
Hello humans (and spambots). I know, I know…it’s been a while. Storm season was crazy here in Oklahoma. Had a lot going on in general. So…heeeyyy! To make it up to you, I’ve put together a new WTF Friday and I promise I’ll try to get my shit together soon. I did update Digital Workflow just the other day. If you haven’t, you should check it out and subscribe. Oh, and my pithy commentary over on Modern Essayist.
Anyway, let’s get started, mmmkay?Continue reading
Oh. My God. Okay, so if yall didn’t seen it in advance, there’s some extremely stupid man (in his mid / late 20s depending on how you calculate your “mid” years for a decade). And he’s a virgin (well, now that he’s in jail – he’s probably not…at least, not from the receiving send).
So, let me tell you what this dummy did to get himself into this situation. Mr. 27-year-old-virgin threatened to kill a woman because HE is a virgin.
Isn’t he just delightful? Like, dude. There’s Tinder. There are prostitutes. You have all these other avenues (or hey, wait it out, bruh) to get some. Threatening women doesn’t really make us super excited to let you go to pound town, amirite?
Police in Colorado contact him because he didn’t want the “1000 hoes” he sees online…but an actual girlfriend and that he planned to kill as many women as he possibly could. It’s like a modern-day Son of Sam except he’s behind bars before he did anything stupid.
And, for those unfamiliar with Son of Sam, his neighbor once complained to the cops about Berkowitz threatening to kill his dogs…and the cops downplayed it at just a crazy neighbor. And then, you know, all those ladies (and couples) he shot in the face…and then wrote letters to taunt the police.
Jackass Quotes Jay-Z Lyrics as Defense for Shooting
So, I think we’d all agree that there’s enough violence in this world. A man in Brooklyn dubbed as the “gangbanger who couldn’t shoot straight” is in big trouble for a shooting that left not one but two innocent bystanders dead. The goal of Nicholas “Face” Washington (come on, yall, come up with better street names…) had the goal of shooting and killing cocaine slangin’ rivals. Because despite the growing drug epidemic here in America, apparently there aren’t enough drug addicts to go around. (I call bullshit since we are now all statistically more likely to die by an opioid overdose than in a car accident.)
Anyway, the brilliant defense strategy for Williams was to quote Jay-Z lyrics. And by Williams, I mean his lawyer. And the lyrics? Well, you can read them here, but it’s about how quick you can get killed. So, it’s not like it was some sort of actual defense or rationalization.
