One of my major pet peeves online are people who feel a need to be TMI about their relationship problems via social media. Which is why when I heard about the Twitter account Claire Myer and her boyfriend Adam Limbic's share to rant about their fights, I rolled my eyes.
Seriously, why would you want the public to have their nose in your business?!Continue Reading >
Teenage boys from New Zealand are currently under investigation for starting and participating in a so-called "rape club," in which they filmed themselves having sex with girls as young as 13 after getting them drunk, and then posting videos of the group rapes on Facebook. The three suspects--who call themselves the roast busters--are believed to be between the ages of 17 and 18, and due to a lack of evidence, they have not yet been arrested.Continue Reading >
Last Tuesday, L.A. model Piper Kennedy was visiting a Starbucks when a persistent barista named Brody started hitting on her. The way she tells it, she "reluctantly" gave him her phone number ... only to receive a text message from him the next day, containing a 15-second "video selfie."
In the clip, Brody--presumably trying to be sexy--can be seen stroking his face with his hand to the soundtrack of Drake's "Hold On, We're Going Home." Unfortunately for Brody, Kennedy showed the video to a pal who posted it to Instagram, where it quickly went viral and has since spawned dozens of parody videos and even its very own hashtag, #StarbucksDrakeHands.
Guys, there's a very important lesson in all of this....Continue Reading >
Recently, I watched Comedian Louis C.K. discussing children today and the effects of technology. You would think that with the advancement of technology, society would be evolving into a better place, but instead, too much technology has become a crutch and is hurting more than helping our children. Technology is castrating our children's humanity.Continue Reading >

Por si alguien tenía alguna duda, ha quedado demostrado una vez más que Jimmy Kimmel es el humorista más creativo en la televisión en inglés de Estados Unidos. No sólo nos engañó a todos con el ridículo vídeo de una muchacha que terminaba incendiándose los pantalones mientras perreaba, sino que nos demostró UNA VEZ MÁS, que no se puede confiar en nada de lo que uno ve en Internet, a menos que venga de una fuente reconocida. ¿Sabes de lo que te estoy hablando? o fuiste una de las afortunadas que no fue víctima del experimento. Yo confieso que caí redonda y te voy a explicar porqué.Continue Reading >
A photo of a disturbing letter that was sent to the family of an autistic boy in Ontario, Canada, has been floating around the Internet since it was posted on Twitter on Monday, angering not only those in the Ontario area, but much of the English-speaking world. The letter was sent anonymously by a neighbor of the 13-year-old, who called the child "retarded," "a nuisance," and a "wild animal," leaving his mother, Karla Begley deeply saddened and afraid.Continue Reading >
This may just be one of the most disturbing social media trends I've come across in a while. Apparently, there's a growing group of Instagram users who post pictures using the hashtag #junkiesofig (for Junkies of Instagram) that seem to glorify their drug abuse, particularly when it comes to heroin. What I don't understand is why Instagram hasn't done anything about it because surely this falls under their rule that prohibits users from posting unlawful images or content, no?Continue Reading >
We all know that teenagers have certain, err, habits that--while totally normal--are not necessarily pleasant for the rest of the family. Case in point? One set of parents apparently became so fed up with their 13-year-old son's constant masturbating that they finally decided to address it with this hilariously awkward warning note.
"Please stop masturbating on the towels!" the letter, typed out in all capital letters, reads. "Clean up with a tissue or in the sink with soap and water!"Continue Reading >
A New York man who is facing child pornography charges may go free thanks to the dumbest, BS reason you'll ever hear!
More than 100 pornographic videos were seized from 29-year-old Yuri Bershchansky's home computer after he was caught sharing child pornography in a peer-to-peer network in 2010. Though Bershchansky has already confessed to downloading the porn, the case could be thrown out, and I don't know WHAT to say!Continue Reading >
