Outting Cheaters on Facebook

Cheaters Take to Facebook

In a number of recent studies, both in the US and in the UK, astounding numbers of divorces are now being attributed (atleast partially) to Facebook.  More than a third of divorces mention Facebook in the divorce documents while over 80% of attorneys say that they have seen a rise in the number of cases using social media.

Social media is also serving as a new way to “out” a cheating spouse with Youtube videos dedicated to cheating spouses, Twitter and Facebook status updates mentioning cheating, and even Craigslist getting in on the “reveal” action.

Social media and cheating news

Creative “Outting” of a Cheating Spouse

Not only is this embarrassing, but let’s be honest, it’s viral.  Not only is this all over YouTube (and the news), it will likely make the round of many a blog. . . saved for all eternity on the interweb (ha).

Caught Cheating on Facebook

Facebook is also a great place to catch a cheater.  Note to cheaters, you may want to log out of Facebook when you aren’t using it (and don’t tell your s/o your password).  Just sayin’.

Poor Marshall. Log out, Buddy, LOG OUT.

Zombified Disney Princesses

Warning: this post contains graphically violent (cartoon) images directly involving Disney princesses. If you are a child, please click away and go watch “Beauty and the Beast” blissfully untainted. If you are an adult and children are nearby, I’d advise clicking away when the pitter-patter of tiny feet reaches your ears. I’m sure you don’t want your monthly family viewing of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” spoiled by questions like, “Mommy, why isn’t Snow White eating any of those dwarves’ brains?” We got that? Okay.

The family-unfriendly, horror movie-inspired pics arranged below are courtesy not of The House of Mouse but of Witit Karpkraikaew, or Clocktowerman, as he goes by on deviantArt. On his two-year-old page, the Thailand-based artist posts gruesome portraits depicting Disney princesses in a much less glamorous fashion than usual. In the paintings, the beloved animated characters are imagined as reanimated corpses (like the monsters of AMC’s “The Walking Dead”) with an unquenchable hunger for human flesh – Snow White likes her men brainy, it seems. Their innards are outards, their lips have rotted away and whole limbs have been torn off. It’s like Walt Disney went all George A. Romero.

As was warned, not suitable for littluns. [Read more...]

Awesomely Geeky Attire In The Big Bang Theory

The Big Bang Theory is a show that celebrates everything geeky with a smattering of self-effacing humor, inside-jokes and some interesting subversions of nerdy stereotypes. With such a collection of colorful, nerdy characters there’s bound to be a ton of references to comics, movies and other geekery all through the show. This is true even of the wardrobe department, which features a selection of awesome geeky clothing that ranges from the obvious to subtle.

Sheldon’s Favorite Heroes

Sheldon Flash T-Shirt

Whenever there’s an excuse to dress as The Flash, Sheldon Cooper takes it, and even when there isn’t he’s often seen in a stylish red Flash t-shirt. Maybe it’s the idea of a scientific breakthrough/accident giving someone superpowers that makes this character so appealing, either way the t-shirts are fun and the costumes are just hilarious and it’s hard not to picture him in something without the iconic lightning bolt logo on it.

TBBT Meme

While The Flash seems to have a prominent place in Dr Sheldon Cooper’s wardrobe it’s pretty obvious that he has a thing for the Lantern Corps… Not just the Green Lantern but the ENTIRE Lantern Corps. Sheldon’s been seen in a variety of different shirts featuring the different Lantern groups.

Sheldon Green Lantern

To be honest the idea that he would want to be in the Lantern Corps is kind of scary, for these guys, imagination and conviction are superpowers… Just think about that for a while.

Five Friends Take the Same Photo for 30 Years

In the summer of 1982, five teenage boys sat down on a wooden bench together and posed for a group photo at Copco Lake, California. 30 years later, they’re still taking that photo. High school buddies John Wardlaw, John Dickson, Mark Rumer, Dallas Burney and John Molony made a pact: every five years, they gather together at the California lake, sit on that same bench and recreate the picture they took at 19 years old.

To begin with, a ritual was never intended: the original picture from ‘82 was taken simply to mark the vacation. Captured with a 35-millimetre camera on self-timer, the photo saw the young vacationers sporting curiously “dark and mysterious” expressions as Molony held up a Folgers Instant Coffee jar containing a live cockroach, a piece of butterscotch candy (food for the cockroach) and a photograph of Robert Young (company for the cockroach). Revisiting the lake in 1987 saw them taking the photo again, on the advice of cabin owner Wardlaw (nicknamed “Wedge”), with the same facial expressions and the same pose, and they’ve done so ever since.

Their touching tradition recently gained media attention when Dickson posted the photographs on a website dedicated to the pact. “Watch us lose hair and gain forehead, gain and lose and gain and lose weight,” Dickson posted on the site. “There are reasons we all decided it was better to take the photo with our shirts on.”

Such collective dedication makes for a heartfelt tribute to the power of friendship. But how long will this go on for? “We plan on doing this for the rest of our lives, no matter what,” says Dickson. “Up until there’s one guy just sitting in the same pose! Even then, maybe someone will take a picture of an empty bench for us.” [Read more...]
