Dear Guy Who Spent 3.5 Hours Pronouncing The World’s Longest Word,

In second grade I gained a certain amount of notoriety on the playground for memorizing the spelling of “antidisestablishmentarianism,” which was, according to my teacher, the longest word in the world. Obviously Mrs. Shumaker was sorely mistaken, because the actual longest word in the world is the chemical name of a protein that contains 189,819 letters and takes nearly three and a half hours to pronounce in its entirety.

But you, sir, weren’t fazed by this lengthy locution. In fact, you filmed a video of yourself pronouncing the whole thing. And even as the potted plant next to you wilts tragically and your 5 o’clock shadow grows into a dark beard, you maintain your sexy Russian monotone.

After you catch your breath, would you like to read me a bedtime story?

"The Real World" Sucks
The show we once loved has hit an all-time low. Read More »

You may remember Puck from “The Real World San Francisco,” which aired way back in 1994, when the show didn’t take place in a hot tub and reality TV was still considered “real.” We always had really low hopes for the bike messaging, nose-picking, homophobic, anti-Semitic, hygiene hating, trash-talking bad boy of the season, which he ultimately fulfilled.

According to TMZ, Puck, real name David Rainey, has been locked up in a California prison for stalking a woman. While the details of the crime are still unclear, it appears that he pleaded no contest to stalking the same woman back in 2010, received two years in prison, got out early and then stalked her again, violating the restraining order. Great work, Puck!

Meanwhile, Rachel Campos, who made out with Puck during the season (eww!), ended up marrying “Road Rules: All Stars” alum Sean Duffy. They live in Wisconsin and have six kids. Good call, Rachel. [TMZ]

Mantatee Molester Arrested

Manatee Molester
This woman was caught joy riding a manatee. Read More »

Molest a manatee and you may find yourself behind bars. Gloria Garcia Guiterrez, the woman who was caught riding a manatee in Florida a couple of months back, was taken into custody this weekend. Authorities showed up at Sears, where the 53-year-old works, and booked her. Guiterrez admitted to taking a joy ride on the endangered sea mammal, and now faces up to six months in jail. She is currently out on bail.

I can’t say I blame her. Manatees are irresistible. But alas, the law protects them from being intentionally annoyed, molested, harassed or disturbed. Hey, I want a law protecting me from all that. [LA Times]

There are many reasons why I am not a pilot. I don’t like flying that much. I have poor sight and coordination. And also, I get mind-squeezingly bad migraines. And though that didn’t stop one Lufthansa pilot from taking off, it did prevent him from completing the flight. The Daily Mail reports that on a recent flight from Newark to Frankfurt, Germany, a pilot was stricken by an especially bad migraine, and his co-pilot was forced to ask if there was anybody on the plane who could help fly.

I wish I was kidding.
