If you’re single and hating it, let this supremely screwed up couple be a shining example of what you are NOT looking for in a relationship. UK couple Andrew and Beverly Salmon’s fight began when Beverly received a phone call from a man who Andrew suspected she was having an affair with. Instead of owning up to the affair, Beverly began to sing “Ding Dong The Witch Is Dead” on a loop, in reference to Andrew’s recently deceased mother. Keep reading »
A New York City man has filed a lawsuit against OkCupid’s parent company IAC after a guy he met on the online dating site scammed him out of $70,000. Michael Z. Picciano insists in his lawsuit that OkCupid, which is a free site, doesn’t properly screen its subscribers and that they are creating a false image of a safe place to meet people.
Picciano, who is 65, met “genuineguy62″ (oh, the irony), whose said his real name was Bruce Thompson, about a year ago. Picciano said he trusted Thompson and felt safe with him. They hit it off, and chatted on the phone and on Skype.
Things got sketchy when Thompson explained that he was facing “unexpected fees he incurred in his dealings setting up a new computer parts business.” Cool story bro.

All Families Healthcare, the only clinic in Flathead Valley, Montana, which provides abortions as well as numerous other reproductive health surfaces to women, suffered a break-in and extensive vandalism on March 3rd.
All Families Healthcare experienced damage to its furniture, medical instruments and supplies, file cabinets, sewer line, furnace and water heater. A yellow powder also covered almost everything inside the clinic, The Missoulian newspaper reported. The clinic is run by Susan Cahill, a physician’s assistant in MT since the 1970s. In 1994, her clinic was firebombed by an anti-abortion extremist as part of a string of attacks against eight clinics that terminate pregnancies. At that time, Cahill’s clinic had to be closed for five months for repairs. Activists mobilized quickly after the most recent attack on the clinic and as of of today, an IndieGogo campaign has raised $41,000 and counting to repair the damage — and there are still 27 days left for the online fundraiser.
