Last month the House of Representatives, led by a lovely bunch of social conservatives hellbent on ruining access to safe, legal abortions any way possible, voted to de-fund Planned Parenthood. This is crazytalk to anyone who’s ever gone to Planned Parenthood for the Pill or a Pap smear or to get a strange lump in your breast checked out. Sexual health is not something anyone should have to gamble with. Attention, conservatives: people have sex! [YouTube] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin’s New Boyfriend Dated Levi’s Sister, Uses The N Word

Back in January, Bristol Palin revealed that she had a new boyfriend. “He’s awesome with Tripp and we’ve been really good friends for a long time, and he’s just a really good guy,” she said. “He’s a family guy. He’s a Christian. We have all the same religious beliefs and our families both come first in our lives, and we just have a lot in common… He loves Tripp and he’s just awesome to be around.”

Now finally, we get her new dude’s name so we can compare him to Levi Johnston see if he’s good enough for our Bristol. But so far, we’re not sold. Keep reading »

Women Who Need Lots Of Attention Post Lots Of Facebook Photos

According to a new study, it’s not difficult to spot the most attention hungry, insecure women on Facebook and your other favorite social networking sites. You already know who they are because you see their photos every five seconds. Researchers at the University of Buffalo found that the women who posted the most photos of themselves were more likely to base their self-worth on physical appearance and have a need for validation and attention in the social networking arena.

“Tiger Blood” Energy Drink Is Here, Sadly

Move over, Four Loko — there’s a new drink in town to facilitate poor decisions. Tiger Blood, a limited time $4-a-pop energy drink by the makers of Love Energy Potion and other classy beverages, is here to keep you WINNING. Full of chipped warlock fangs and Adonis DNA, the fruit punch flavored energy drink allows you to “take more drugs than anyone can survive. Be different, have a different brain, and a different heart. When you feel Tiger Blood in your veins, you’ll realize dying’s for fools and that can’t is the cancer of happen. Period. The end.” (Or, um, not.) While Charlie Sheen is not in any way affiliated with Tiger Blood, I’m sure it receives his full stamp of approval. [Oh No They Didn't! via Harcos Labs] Keep reading »
