If, like most of us, you find yourself secretly hating rich people now and then, it’s probably because of the stupid and frivolous shit they buy. Even if you’re not a Marxist, you can’t help but think of the starving children of the world when you see some douchebag professional athlete sitting on his yacht, his trophy wife on the phone scheduling yet another cosmetic surgery. A whole segment of our economy is dedicated to making ridiculous shit for these shallow douchebags.
But a whole lot of lives have been saved by that ridiculous shit. For instance … Keep reading »

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.

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]
