Mind Of Man: Facebook Has Made Us All Stalkers

I once stalked a woman I had gone on one date with the old-fashioned way – I stared at her from a distance in a public park. Judge me if you must, but as the ancient rhyme goes: I am mirrored underwear, you are laser gun. Whatever you say reflects off of me and shoots you in the face. Technology has turned us all into stalkers. That moment where I found myself sitting on a park bench and staring at a couple oblivious to my probing gaze happened before Facebook. The only difference between stalking now and then is pants. During the Dark Ages before social media sites began broadcasting a million pleas for attention, pants were a necessity. Otherwise, I would certainly have been arrested. Keep reading »

Have You Ever Made Your Guy’s Beard or Mustache Go Bye-Bye?

On last night’s “The Daily Show,” Jon Stewart unveiled his new beard-free face. He said that he decided to shave the scruff after he and his family had a heart-to-heart about it and his kids told them they hated it. Now Jon has 30 percent more face and looks 100 percent less like a grizzled homeless man.

As you can probably tell, I’m not a fan of beards — or mustaches (unless they’re on Magnum P.I. and sitting squarely above a half-unbuttoned Hawaiian shirt). I may have even one time traded sex for the promise of a clean-shaven upper lip. And I know I’m not alone. Have you ever come face-to-face with unwanted scruff on your significant other’s face? Did you put up and shut up, or convince him to get rid of the offending facial hair? Keep reading »

10 Things You Need To Know About Steven Slater And His Jet Blue Exit

Yesterday, we viral-ly shook Steven Slater’s hand for coming up with one of the most creative ways to quit a job. This week, the Jet Blue flight attendant got so frustrated with a customer that he cussed her out over the intercom and proceeded to leave the plane via the emergency chute with a few beers in hand. This maneuver has left everyone in awe, but with varying opinions. Some see Slater as a working man’s hero, standing up for all the little guys that have to put up with people’s whining everyday; others are pinning Slater as the baby, saying that he overreacted and put people in danger. Regardless, Slater is a free man for now, having posted his $2,500 bail. [ABC]

Now that Steven is back on the streets, here is what you should know about him. Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Brother Died Before I Was Born

My parents had been married for five years when they had their first child, a boy named Nathan. It was the fall of 1974 and he was born with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a congenital bone disease you may have heard referred to as “Brittle Bone Disease.”

My mother was told she should institutionalize her baby, but instead my parents brought him home and learned how to care for him. I can’t imagine all that they must have gone through – they were 26 years old with a baby who was critically ill. There are pictures of Nathan in front of the Christmas tree in his bouncy seat, looking pretty happy, with splints on his arms. He lived to be eight months old and then, in June 1975, on Friday the 13th, Nathan died. Keep reading »

How Many Calories In A Krispy Kreme Cheeseburger?

The sad thing is I actually know people who would eat this: a vendor at the Wisconsin State Fair is serving up a cheeseburger between two halves of a Krispy Kreme donut as a bun. You can get it with chocolate-covered bacon, too! But your coronary artery wants to know: How many calories? Keep reading »

Porn Star Sasha Grey’s Full-Frontal Nudity Shocks “Entourage” Viewers

“Sasha Grey Sparks Bush Backlash”! That was the headline for the always-astute Tracy Clark-Flory’s Broadsheet post on porn star Sasha Grey getting totally naked on the latest episode of HBO’s “Entourage.” Of course, in this day and age, the nudity itself wasn’t shocking. (After all, at this point, who hasn’t seen Grey nude?) It was her pubic hair that became the hirsuite cause célèbre. Keep reading »
