Last night, a crazy, woman-hating man fired 52 shots into a ”Latin Impact” dance aerobics class at a LA Fitness health club outside of Pittsburgh. Three women were killed, and nine others were injured before the guy turned the gun on himself. George Sodini, 48, was a huge wack job. He had major beef with women and had been planning this murder for nine months on his website. On the site, he complained about having no control over his life, getting rejected by women, being a loner, failing at an earlier shooting attempt, and his problems with alcoholism. He even listed his death as August 4, 2009, the day the shooting happened.

Amy Wolfe, a 33-year-old church organist from Pennsylvania, is so in love with the magic carpet fairground ride, 1001 Nachts, at Knoebels Amusement Park, she plans to “marry” it and change her surname to Weber to symbolize her spiritual marriage to it. Wolfe suffers from objectum sexuality, a condition that makes her sexually attracted to inanimate objects. She first fell in love with the ride when she visited the park at 13. “I wasn’t freaked out, as it just felt so natural, but I didn’t tell anyone about it because I knew it wasn’t ‘normal’ to have feelings for a fairground ride,” she says. Ten years later, she began a “courtship” with 1001 Nachts, traveling 160 miles 10 times a year, and riding it over 3,000 times. She sleeps with its picture on her ceiling and carries around its spare nuts and bolts to feel closer to it. “I love him as much as women love their husbands and know we’ll be together forever,” she said. Yeah, that’s what she says now — wait ’til she gets tired of picking up his dirty socks and putting the seat down every time he uses the bathroom!
The BBC did a documentary recently on others who suffer from objectum sexuality, including a woman in love with the Eiffel Tower, another in love with the Golden Gate bridge. Check it out above. [Telegraph] Keep reading »
In our weight-and-beauty-obsessed culture, there’s something almost fetishized and taboo about an image of a skinny girl eating a big, honking burger. That’s why I’m oddly obsessed with a new site aptly titled, Skinny Girls, Big Sandwiches. It’s a blog “dedicated to skinny girls chowing down and stuffing their gullets full of sandwiches … or tacos, wraps, burritos, hoagies, subs, hamburgers, sloppy joes, paninis, tortas … or just about any combination of meat and bread products.” After the jump, some of my favorite featured photographs.

OK, so it didn’t arrive in time for my fifth birthday, but this is proof that a little girl’s dreams do come true! There is, as we speak, a pink bunny so big you can spot it on Google Earth! Viennese art collective, Gelatin, has created the 30-foot-high, 200-foot-long stuffed animal on a mountainside in the North of Italy. Best part, it’s meant to be played with! This soft and silly bunny will be on display until 2025, although we recommend getting there before the dirt, dust, snow, bed bugs and other elements beat you to it. Now, if you can’t make it over to Italy, you can get up close with a few perfectly pink and fluffy photos after the jump… [The Guardian] Keep reading »
We thought they’d last “Forever” after a viral video of a bride and groom dancing down the aisle hit YouTube. But, alas, a new video has surfaced with the couple in divorce court. Well, not really, but a production company wanted to continue the fun and choreographed a divorce parody version of the wedding original. Check it out. Keep reading »
Nothing has made us giggle as hard this morning as this “Colbert Report” clip about 17-year-old Freesia Jackson, who was nailed by her school officials for possession of a controlled substance: her birth control pills. Popping a baby-blocker in the cafeteria earned this little trollop a two-week suspension from school.
