Disturbing World Wide Weird

So, as you can see above this post...I have added a live updated daily feed of strange and weird news going on around the globe. Some of it is kinda twisted! It was the perfect gadget to put on this blog however, the topics fit the context perfectly. Enjoy!

Diarrhea, where will YOU be when it hits?

Well, I was in bed sleeping. But no, it wasn't me that it hit. Let me explain:

I spent a good 5 or 6 hours yesterday shampooing and completely scrubbing every inch of carpet in my house. It still had an animal smell to it from when we first got our puppy and he had been staying indoors. Anyhow. I wake up this morning to find racing stripes of mini-diarrhea trails all over the house.

I guess the new catfood I purchased didn't agree well with our kitten and it hit her in the middle of playing or something. But you HAVE to hear all the places I found the shit, hopefully, its all gone now.

I found her "happy trails" all over the carpet
In the bathtub
In a kitchen cabinet
On the ceiling of said kitchen cabinet
6" up the wall in the hallway (wtf?)
On the side of my printer
On the ledge of the window
And somehow, she also got it on the window of the french doors leading out back.

Seriously, did she make a scenic route scramble for the littler box and just couldn't hold it or what?

Guys & Cleaning

Now I understand why guys get married. They absolutely need women to clean for them. My boyfriend vacuumed the living room for me today and it looked like he used the vacuum as a NASCAR. There's track marks every which way at various angles and speeds...I think I even saw a skid mark on the hardwood kitchen. Needless to say I'll be redoing it once he leaves the house, considering there's random balls of fluff and dirt in between the "I kinda cleaned!" marks. I was more than happy to say no, when he asked if he could shampoo the carpet with me.

And whats with the laundry hampers guys? What is it about laundry baskets that make you guys want to purposely throw your clothes on the floor? Granted, my man is still in training and making progress, but for a while (and still a bit now) its like, I have 3 laundry baskets within 2 rooms...and his clothes are NEVER in any of them. Not to mention when I wash his pants, I find the weirdest things in his pockets, its like having a kid.

Dishes...he does those right, I can't complain. But sometimes its like we have 15 glasses on the table and its just the two of us.

How the hell?

The Movies Lied...!

Just in case anyone is curious, if your car is hit by a semi-truck it doesn't just slide underneath and drift untouched like in The Fast and the Furious. No, not at all. In fact, it actually causes major damage! Particularly to the side of the car. But the movies make it seem like a good idea and a fun way to travel on the freeway!

How do I know this?

A friend of mine had her car totaled by a semi the other day. The truck tried to change lanes without looking, slammed into the car and smashed up the side of it. The worst part is, the truck driver didn't even slow down to check if anyone was hurt. He kept going and didn't even stop to offer assistance or his insurance. People can be assholes. Too bad they couldn't get his license number. Of course, these days they would have probably found out the truck was stolen by a Mexican who had just jumped the border fence 2-days ago anyway.

Maybe that's why he didn't stop...he couldn't speak English.

Welcome to America, press 1 for English!

Sunburned?

I have a question, one that I promise every person reading this has asked at least once. Why is it when you're out in the sun and get a little color or a burn, people feel obligated to make comments like "Get some sun today?" "You look a little red." Seriously, no shit. I know I spent the last few days out in the sun and that tends to cause some coloring of the skin...do you think Im unable to figure out on my own that I'm probably a little burned?

Can you imagine the reaction of the one guy who got burned and didn't know it until someone told him? Has that even happened? My assumption is that at some point it had to have, in order for people to think that pointing out sunburns is necessary.

Thanks, but I'm perfectly aware of what's going on with my body!

However, it is fun to give them random answers like "Its not a sunburn, its a chemical burn" as you watch their face and try to figure out if they now feel like jackasses for poking fun at you when its actually something serious.

Sometimes People are Just FUBAR

So I heard a story today about a family who was just getting ready to move and had a lot of stuff to get rid of. They put the stuff at the end of their driveway (was a washer and dryer set along with some smaller household items) with a sign that said "Free." It all sat there for about a week and as they neared their moving date...they desperately needed someone to move the stuff before they left, so to attract some more attention they replaced the "Free" sign with one that said "For Sale."

The washer and dryer got stolen that night.

...uh?

  • Why do most cars have speedometers that go up to at least 130 when you legally can't go that fast on any road? (stupid, break the law)

My easy cash adventure, updated!

As a few of you know, when I'm bored I look for and test those "make money now!" types of webpages on the internet. So far, I'm up to about 5 or 6 valid sites that have made me a decent amount of cash for doing nada really.

My newest one is DEFINATELY the best so far (however I will recap on the others too)

Cash Crate - Within 15 minutes of joining this site, I had already made $10. Easy enough, basically you spend anywhere from 10 to 30 seconds (yes, seconds) on "offer" pages and they pay you for it. What it comes down to is you basically fill out a small form for each page with your name, email and address and they pay you anywhere from $.20 to $15 to basically add you to their mailing list (which you can either unsubscribe from right away, or just make a free email account and let the minor amounts of spam go there) There's an unlimited amount of offers at any given time so basically you're going to earn as much as you feel like making. Like I said though, its worth checking out, as of right now, I'm at $30 from them and I just joined about an hour ago.

Other sites I've tried within the past 2-3 months that have been worth while and given me no spam, no telemarketing calls and actually paid me:


Survey Savvy - 3-4 per month (so far) but they pay well. Avg seems to be $5 a survey

Opinion Outpost - One of the best paid so far, seems to be about 2-3 per week. Highest paid survey from them so far was $15 for about 30 minutes of work.

My Survey - About 4-5 surveys a week, they're small and quick. Normally under the 5 minute mark. Avg is about .50 cents per 2 minute survey. Lots of them though so they add up.

HCD Surveys - About 2-3 per month, but they pay fairly well. avg is about $4

Cash Crate - My newest one, by FAR the best paying, you make as much as you feel like. I'm up to $30 for an hour of work so far.

She's Crazy!

When I purchased my new house, the lady who owned it before me was crazy. Like, not the bat-shit insane eatting paint off the walls crazy...but the cat-lady who lives down the street and collects hub caps kind of crazy. She had the most horrifying southern antique style going on in this house. Worst of all, everything was labelled! Like she would forget that the matches were, you know, matches if she didn't have glittery letters glued onto the top of the box. Even the garden outside had a huge sign stuck in the ground that said "Garden." She even ripped the doors off the hinges, painted them and hung them on the walls like a photo. Not to mention every room was painted a weird color, like the ones that you find at discount stores because no one ever buys them. Cranberry colored kitchen with no cabinets anyone? Yeah, it was bad.

Anyhow, since buying the house in March, she's "stopped by" about 6 times. You can obviously tell she didn't want to move and was forced into it. Not only that but she absolutely refuses to come into the house. I think she's afraid to know what it looks like now that someone with some sanity has taken the reins. So of course I make it a habit to invite her in everytime, just to watch her freak out on the front step.

This time she came by to know what we were doing with what we so lovingly named "The Torture Shack" that resides in the backyard. I'm honestly surprised the cop that lives behind me hasn't gotten a search warrant just to make sure there's no bodies hidden in the thing. Over the weekend my finance and a friend of his moved it out of the backyard and to the side of the house. They are planning to put it across the street for their kid's to use as a playhouse. Crazy lady didn't like that idea.

She basically stood on my front step for a good 15min begging to get the torture shack back, claiming it was one of the hardest things for her to leave behind when she moved. Which is funny, because it's one of the first things we had planned to chop down and burn.

Bitch didn't leave until I agreed to take her number so I could call her "just in case."

Monster of Montauk


So, anyone who's heard about this lately knows the story...if you haven't heard about it, please exit from beneath your rock for a few moments and try to keep up.


I've just come across news of the "Monster of Montauk". Word is that an unidentified creature with a hooked beak, about the size of a dog, has washed onshore in Montauk, leading to a frenzy of specualation about whether the monster is in fact a monster, or whether the whole thing is some kind of viral marketing ploy.


Personally I believe in the coming weeks we're going to find out it was a hoax ala photoshop and/or a media ploy to promote something and are using drastic attention-whoring ploys to sell it. To me though, it does kind of resemble a raccoon thats been out in the sun too long, bloated and picked clean by fish in the ocean (considering it washed up on shore and all)

Already in the works: The Dark Knight sequel

The Dark Knight hasn't even made it entirely through week 2 yet and already they're casting for the sequel. I guess making over $350 million in 2 weeks is a good sign that a second movie would be profitable, eh? With the casting they're suggesting, they may even shatter their own records next time around:

"Riddle Me This: Jolie & Depp in New Batman?

By SaraCThu, 31 Jul 2008 16:59:28 GMT

The rumor mill is a-buzzing about plans for the next Batman. And guess which stars are rumored to be on the shortlist to play Batman’s arch enemies? According to several reports, it’s rumored that Johnny Depp is being considered to play the role of The Riddler, whose stretch pants were last filled by funnyman Jim Carrey.
Who would you rather see wearing spandex?

Speaking of tight ensembles, Angelina Jolie has been linked to the role of Catwoman, Batman’s stealthy rival and love-interest, formerly portrayed by Michelle Pfeifer and Halle Berry.
In a recent interview with the Daily News, film icon and original Catwoman Julie Newmar whole-heartedly endorsed the idea of Angelina Jolie stepping into the skin-tight costume.

"Angelina would own the part," Newmar said. And she definitely has a point. Newmar also claims that there is truth behind the casting rumors. "My industry friends tell me [she] has made inquiries about the role. I can understand how it would pique her interest. Catwoman is Batman's one true love," mused Newmar. "She's tremendously popular with women because she's both a heroine and a villainess.”

Also on the ultimate Batman dream casting list: award-winner Phillip Seymour Hoffman for the part of the Penguin. But, not to worry, no one will be taking Christian Bale’s place as the caped crusader anytime soon."
