The Boob Jam

The Boob Jam | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Jam out with your tits out.
Vloasis's insight:

It's a site with the concept of making games and interactive software that does not cater to the typical male-centric boob market.

Fights and shouting matches erupt in community garden in Queens

Fights and shouting matches erupt in community garden in Queens | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Despite its serene setting and rows of flowers and vegetables, a community garden in Flushing, Queens, has turned into a battlefield.
Vloasis's insight:

"And almost all of the tangles involve elderly Korean gardeners, officials and witnesses say."

 

This just goes to show that people need land, and green things, and a closer touch with nature.  The city claiming the public spot after it had been made into a garden was a bit shitty, but if the caretakers were really trying to make a profit and excluding some customers, I can see why.

Crazy Cave Hotel Near Shanghai

Crazy Cave Hotel Near Shanghai | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
This proposed hotel near Shanghai will only top out at 45 feet above ground level, but it will extend a further 19 stories into a series of caves lining an abandoned quarry.
Vloasis's insight:

Wow. I spent a few days in Shanghai in 1988. The hotel was old and the bathroom was frequented by cockroaches. Things have really changed, it seems, and I love the design idea of this place.

Real-Life "Bride of Bill" Has Been Found

Real-Life "Bride of Bill" Has Been Found | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
Vloasis's insight:

While many may associate Uma Thurman as the character of "The Bride" in the Tarantino "Kill Bill" movies, and others might harken back to the comic book origin of the tale, a real-life "bride of Bill" has been found in Makecross, Georgia, and her tale draws a remarkable parallel to the movie.

 

Meet Melanie Sempro, the only daughter of a real estate lawyer, who thought she was marrying a darnn nice fellow in the person of Toby Englewood.  But when she stood him up at the altar and drove away in his car which was parked outside the church, something in Toby snapped and he swore revenge.

 

He tracked down Melanie near Bangor, Maine and as she ran away from him she was struck by a car in a Wal-Mart parking lot. Left in a coma in the hospital, Melanie awoke eight months later and began tracking down and punishing Toby's friends and family members who may have been supportive in his plan to find her. 

 

Currently she's serving 18-to-life in Waynesville Female Penitentiary for ultimately murdering Toby on his patio with shish-kebab skewers.

Making the most of your bountiful summertime CSA share | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it

 The first thing Spivakova and Manders do is spread the contents of their box on the sidewalk at Greensgrow and take a picture for Instagram that is posted...

Vloasis's insight:

Getting into a CSA is a really cool option if it is available in your area. Of ocurse, it costs more than supermarket sale prices, but it does more to support local agriculture. Lauri and I have been meaning to look into one here that a friend of ours uses.

The United States of Crazy: You Can Now Go to Jail for a Sarcastic Facebook Comment

The United States of Crazy: You Can Now Go to Jail for a Sarcastic Facebook Comment | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
An 18-year-old was jailed because a Canadian woman reported a single, frivolous Facebook post that he had marked "LOL."

Via Darcy Delaproser
Vloasis's insight:

What an insane mess this is.  True, the kid made a horrible comment before he amended it with the LOL and j/k, but why it wasn't at the very most investigated and dropped is a bit of a head-scrtatcher.

Doctors from Canberra, Australia, have published a case in which an elderly man 'lost' a piece of cutlery inside his body. (Wtf!!
Vloasis's insight:

Now, you Vloasis readers might think that this is another story I've made-up. I mean, a fork in the penis, plus it happening in Canberra? It's the perfect storm. But I assure you, I only wish I had thought of this first...vicariously, of course.

To me the last one was kind of a throwaway (really, your GPS?) but I dug the two studies regarding how the activities of juggling and sex (not combined...whew) grow new brain cells for happiness and reflexes.  Should this article be in the Vloasis Sex Corner section?

Disney Redesigns Goofy

Disney Redesigns Goofy | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it

"We've taken a lot of heat for this," explained Disney studio exec Michael Westrum. What he's talking about is a new proposal for their Goofy character...one that makes him look a little more human, and way more goofy.

 

"We called a design team together for suggestions and brainstorming," explained Westrum. "This tested well with a small group." But larger problems awaited as, among others, the Special Olympics Committee jumped on the character as portraying special needs people in an "unflattering, stereotypical light".

 

"Honestly," said Westrum, "our goal was to make Goofy more human. If he just stood there looking normal, we wouldn't have a character anymore."

Gotcha! - In Photos: 16 Work-At-Home Scams To Avoid

Gotcha! - In Photos: 16 Work-At-Home Scams To Avoid | Vloasis vlogging | Scoop.it
In 2010 the Federal Trade Commission received 8,192 complaints involving work-at-home-business opportunities, flat with the previous year. The FTC estimates that only one in every 55 of those work-at-home opportunities was legitimate.
Vloasis's insight:

A common thread running through scams like these is that your potential employer needs you to pay for your own training kit, startup requirement, or some form of initial investment.  That's all they were ever after.
