When Louboutins Attack

Money can’t buy you class, the great Countess LuAnn once sang, and isn’t it true? The manager of Jaspers’ Corner Tap & Kitchen in San Fransisco, Matt Medinger, went to the ER recently after he intervened in a streetside drama over Christian Louboutin’s red-soled shoes. Medinger said he witnessed a man walk past a woman on the sidewalk, who was changing out of her Loubs into a pair of slippers, and saw him accidentally bump one of the shoes. The woman started yelling at the shoe-bumper, who was trying to apologize when he got punched by one of the woman’s friends. So Medinger jumped in, trying to tell everyone to calm down, when this shoe nazi reportedly grabbed her shoes and smashed them into his head, sending him to the ER. The woman and her friends ran off, but Medinger snapped a pic of her and posted it on Twitter. I hope she gets busted by the SFPD and her Loubs are handed over to “Fashion Police.” That is not how to care for your $600 shoes, lady.  [NY Daily News]

Comcast Mistakenly Broadcast Porn Instead Of “Good Morning America”

Comcast and Colorado Springs news channel KRDO have some explaining to do after a Thursday morning glitch broadcast hardcore pornography to its customers in lieu of the usual “Good Morning America.”

Studies confirm drinking makes you smarter! Read More »

A new study from the University of Illinois should make college students very happy: apparently drinking a couple beers before a test may improve your performance. Researchers administered a brain teaser quiz to a group of 40 men. Study participants who had two drinks before the test –either two pints of beer or two medium glasses of wine–were able to solve 40 percent more brain teasers than the sober participants, and they solved them considerably faster. The researchers say this is because alcohol hinders analytical thinking and opens your mind to creative problem solving. Tipsy test-takers also spend less time second-guessing themselves. Study co-author Jennifer Wiley is quick to point out that these results do not apply to binge drinking, though: “We tested what happens when people are slightly merry — not when people drink to extremes.” So there you have it. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to get slightly merry and take some online IQ tests. [MSN]

Now, just a few months later, she has three other women working for her. Read more…
