Last month we wrote about Lauren Scruggs, the 23-year-old model and fashion blogger who lost her left hand and eye in a freak incident with the propeller of a small airplane. It’s only been six weeks since her horrific accident, but a few days ago, Lauren was seen being dropped off at a Dallas rehabilitation center — and she looks great. Sporting an eye patch and a baseball cap pulled down to cover her face, Lauren was photographed walking and talking with her family. After being in intensive therapy to relearn the basic capabilities that are too easy to take for granted, Lauren has made a tremendous amount of progress and is on her way to recovery.

A man recently married his deceased girlfriend in a combination funeral and wedding ceremony.
Chadil Deffy, also known as Deff Yingyuen, placed a ring on the finger of Sarinya “Anne” Kamsook, his girlfriend of 10 years, during the ceremony in Thailand’s Surin province. The couple had planned to get married in the future, but Yingyuen wanted to focus on his studies before tying the knot, the Thai-Asean News (TAN) Network reported. Unfortunately, Kamsook unexpectedly died in an accident before the couple could set a date. Read more…
What happens when you offer oral sex in exchange for an order of McDonald’s Chicken McNuggets? I’m sure you’ve asked yourself this very question a number of times as you passed the golden arches, dreaming of eating an order of heavily processed chicken product, but not quite being able to scrape up the $3.41 for the luxury. We’ve all been there. But who among us has had the guts to find out?
Los Angeles woman, Khadijah Baseer, had the courage to find out. The 31-year-old stood outside her local Mickey D’s drive-thru and told a number of male customers that she would blow them if they bought her an order of Chicken McNuggets. Her venture did not go well. She never got any nuggets. All she got was a lousy misdemeanor solicitation charge. We admire her for trying. We dearly hope she was at least trading her services for a 20-piece nuggets. Otherwise she was severely devaluing herself. [Oddity Central]
There’s nothing quite as sexy as a guy who knows what’s important in life; people not things. He’s not homeless, he’s a gainfully employed dude famous for his devout minimalism. Andrew Hyde a technology consultant, started his quest to simplify his life by challenging himself to make due with only 100 possessions (socks and underwear not included). It felt so good, that he decided to eliminate even more of his belongings until he he owned only 15 items. Some of Andrew’s essentials include a backpack (which fits all of his things), running shoes, toiletry kit, a MacBook Air and an iPhone. Impressive, Andrew! I wonder he’s willing to make room for one more thing; an available women who hates getting rid of stuff and is admittedly a bit of a toiletry hoarder. I could probably learn a lot from this guy. That, and Andrew’s 15 items would fit so effortlessly into a small corner of my apartment. No giving up any closet space! [Oddity Central]
We knew Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy was going to be influential, but this just isn’t what we expected.
The week-old child is already racing up the Billboard charts with her cries audible on her dad’s song “Glory,” and she already has her own strain of marijuana named after her, reports TMZ.
According to the website, several weed dispensaries in Los Angeles are selling a new strain of pot called “OG Blue Ivy.” Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t sign off on the new strain, but they don’t have a trademark on their daughter’s name and so far the stores haven’t received any sort of legal notice from the couple.
