Only a few days after President Obama held a press conference and criticized Sony’s decision to pull “The Interview” from theaters at a cyber hacker’s request, the studio has decided to release the movie on its initial premiere date after all.

When I started wedding planning, I wasn’t really worried about much. I’ve always been an extremely organized person, one who has a clearly labeled binder for pretty much every aspect of her life—and our wedding is no exception. Shortly after we got engaged, my sister gifted me with a fresh binder and I wasted no time adding dividers for all the key aspects of our wedding: venue, cake, flowers, music, invites.

James Graham, a 37-year-old man from Kentucky, has been indicted on several charges after, police say, he set fire to a woman’s house because she rejected his advances on Facebook.

I repeat, he set her house on fire. Because she rejected him on Facebook. Luckily, she wasn’t home at the time and is unharmed, but still, he set her house on fire. Because she rejected him on Facebook. What the actual hell? Keep reading »
