10 Things We’d Throw A Tantrum About

Most people have missed a flight at some point. And being upset about it is totally acceptable. But the woman in the video above actually threw a temper tantrum when she was told the gates to her Cathay Pacific flight to San Francisco had been closed and the plane had taken off without her. The airline said it had been calling her to the gate, but when she didn’t responded, a baggage handler unloaded her baggage from the aircraft and the crew closed the gate, per security requirements. We don’t condone this type of behavior because it’s embarrassing and childish — though hilarious when caught on camera and uploaded to YouTube! — but there are some things that would cause us to throw a tantrum. Read the situations in which we’d yell and scream and throw a hissy fit after the jump. Keep reading »

Center Of All Eyes

I woke one day and decided to be the artist’s model at the local art school instead of being one of the painters/sculptors as I usually am. Most artist’s models always looked a little spacey to me and uncomfortable, even unhappy to be the one standing nude in front of students. What I had not counted on was that the poses I was asked to hold would be more than my small body could bear. By the end of each short session, my body ached, and I was happy enough to step down from the dias and stretch. While I was posing, I had to keep very still and focus on something with my eyes to keep steady. Keep reading »

    Who Is Fatima Bhutto, Anyway?

    George Clooney has always been a bit of a ladies man. The self-proclaimed eternal bachelor — who has vowed to never, ever, ever marry — has dated a slew of Hollywood starlets and pretty, young unknowns. Renee Zellweger, Lisa Snowdon, Krista Allen, and, most recently, Sarah Larson, have all spent quality time with the actor, but none of them have actually stuck. But could all that be changing now that Clooney has apparently been flirting outside of Hollywood? Rumor has it, Clooney is dating Fatima Bhutto, 26, the Afghan born poet and writer, who is also the niece of slain Pakastani politician Benazir Bhutto, who was assassinated last year.
