!! OMG, this is why we’re miserable: The 21st Century !!

sadbear1.jpg
Cracked has made THIS LIST of reasons why we’re all f*cking sad-sacks in the era we were supposed to be enjoying a never-ending stream of martinis from an army of robot slaves. Some of the reasons are the lack of annoying people in our lives (cause we are able to avoid them online), shitty text-message interactions, and not having to go to funerals with your friends.

There’s one advantage to having mostly online friends, and it’s one that nobody ever talks about:

They demand less from you.

Sure, you emotionally support them, comfort them after a breakup, maybe even talk them out of a suicide. But knowing someone in meatspace adds a whole, long list of annoying demands. Wasting your whole afternoon helping them fix their computer. Going to funerals with them. Toting them around in your car every day after theirs gets repossessed by the bank. Having them show up unannounced when you were just settling in to watch the Dirty Jobs marathon on the Discovery channel, then mentioning how hungry they are until you finally give them half your sandwich.

Ugh, I hate the present.

!! OMG, how chaotic: ANTM Casting Call !!


Thousands of model wannabes nearly started a riot at a New York casting call for America’s Next Top Model: Shorty Edition. A car overheated near the mass of waiting women and one of the ladies mistook the smoke for a bomb. This caused mass panic, six injuries, and three arrests. The auditions were called off and the aspiring models, some of whom had camped out overnight, were told to go home.
So much for smashing stereotypes!
Thanks to Jon for the tip.

!! OMG, how sensitive: Castration Debate !!

11castrate_600.JPG
Europeans are now debating the merits of castration for sex offenders:

In the Czech Republic, the issue was brought home last month when Antonin Novak, 43, was sentenced to life in prison after raping and killing Jakub Simanek, a 9-year-old boy who disappeared last May. Mr. Novak [pictured above], who had served four and a half years in prison for sexual offenses in Slovakia, had been ordered to undergo outpatient treatment, but had failed to show up several months before the murder. Advocates of surgical castration argued that had he been castrated, the tragedy could have been prevented.

Some sex offenders even want to be castrated because they don’t want to have the urges anymore. LITTLE CHILDREN anyone?
And they’ll castrate a chipmanzee for THROWING ROCKS, but let a kiddy-diddler keep his doodles?
