A Major Change In Medicine That Means We Can All Trust Our Doctors More

pharmaceutical-drugs

When you get prescribed a pharmaceutical drug, you generally assume — or at least would hope you can assume — that it’s in your best interest to take it. Because your doctor actually believes the pros outweigh the cons for your particular health situation … and that he has no ulterior motives (like a financial kickback) for prescribing the drug. Sadly, think again. Doctors being paid by pharmaceutical companies for hawking their drugs and pharmaceutical reps being paid based on how many prescriptions doctors write for drugs has been a longtime common practice … Yup, it’s just plain sick.

School Named For KKK Grand Wizard Gets Much-Needed New Name

kkk-grand-master

Nathan B. Forrest High School in Jacksonville, Florida is largely African American and Forrest’s history is dubious, indeed. He was a slave trader, and historical reports and some say he gave the order to kill 300 captured black Union soldiers. He was also an honorary member of the KKK. None of these are good things, and honestly, I wouldn’t want to go to a school bearing his name, either. Read more on The Stir …

Best Ever Condom Commercial Banned For Being Too Raunchy

try-condom-commercial

For an advertisement meant to promote safe sex — arguably one of the greatest ways a person can pass time on a random Monday night — you’ve got to admit condom commercials are usually pretty stale. You can count on no hands the number of times you actually sort-of see folks doing the deed while we imagine they’re wearing whatever condom is being promoted, and it sometimes seems like the company does everything it can to avoid even mentioning the S-word.

Leave it to a bunch of sexy, easygoing Australians to make the absolute best condom commercial you’ll see — and then blame another group of Aussie partypoopers for banning it. Boooo! Watch the banned commercial on The Stir…

Teen Who Killed His Dad Over Megan Fox Insult May Get Life In Prison

Megan Fox

Father and son relationships can be really deep and complicated. The one that existed between Jason Beckman and his father Jay doesn’t seem like it was an exception. At age 17, the teen — who reportedly has Asperger’s Syndrome — approached his dad to ask what he thought of actress Megan Fox. Who knows, maybe he wanted to have one of those fabled father-son moments where both can finally bond, like men, over the objective attractiveness of a well-known starlet. But dad’s response — that Jason wouldn’t know what to do with a woman like Megan — left the teen cold. And spurred in him a desire to plot and ultimately commit the horrific murder of his father.

Pregnancy may come with a whole host of unpleasant side effects, but you gotta admit, it kind of makes us seem like super heroes at times too. (Hello? You know Wonder Woman is hiding underneath that baby bump disguise you’re wearing.)

For one thing, we’re housing a human being for nine months, which is noteworthy enough as it is. But there are plenty of other things that pregnant women probably don’t give themselves enough credit for.

1. Hypnotizing men — Think about it for a second — don’t you have dudes opening doors and offering to help you out like, 100 times more than before you were preggo? It’s like some men are immediately put into a trance at the first glance of a big old belly. Discover nine more super powers on The Stir…

16 Grossest Things Parents Do for Their Kids

gross things parents do

You don’t have to be a parent very long to realize the universal truth of kids: they’re gross. They burp and fart with reckless abandon, and they’ve never heard a potty joke that did not leave them on the floor in stitches. But parents, let’s be honest with ourselves for a second, shall we? We’re pretty gross too.

At least, we parents do some pretty disgusting things for the sake of our kids. To prove it, we asked parents to ‘fess up to some of the most disgusting things they’ve done for their kids. Read all 16 on The Stir…
