Winter Is Making People Crazy in Boston. But This Guy Has a Solution…

Back in 2005, Boston legalized “parking space saving.”

What is parking space saving? Exactly what it sounds like. When there’s a snowstorm, if you shovel out a place to park, you are allowed to put your garbage can in the spot when you’re not using it so that there’s a place for you when you come back…

How Is the Swimsuit Issue Still a Thing in this Day and Age with All Its…Possibilities

Feb 17, 2015 By Abraham 0

The Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue began in an era not exactly known for its progressive and positive views on women, and yet it continues. But even putting sexism aside for a moment, the success and even existence of Sports Illustrated’s February issue makes no sense.

Practically speaking, why are people buying this magazine in such huge numbers? There’s a ridiculous amount of competition even just among other printed publications. And then there’s the internet. (I think there might be people wearing swimsuits on the internet.)

But still the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue thrives. Strange.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver explores this peculiar phenomenon…

It’s Almost Unbelievable How Callous This Doctor Is About Other People’s Kids Dying

The Jacksons’ daughter has leukemia which has ruined her measles immunity, and their son is too young to be immunized. So they are, in a sense, at the mercy of their community when it comes to contracting or not contracting the infection.

Now, after a trip to Disneyland and having indirect contact with a family who doesn’t vaccinate, their son is showing signs of the disease. And there’s nothing they can do but wait and hope.

Their story is sad enough told just like that. But to add salt to the wound, let’s see what the anti-vax doctor interviewed for this segment has to say…

His remarks (which begin about 2 minutes in) are clearly edited, so it’s possible he’s not as terrible as he comes across. Let’s hope so anyway, because how could anyone — and a doctor, no less — show such blatant disregard for the lives of other people?

This Brilliant Teacher Isn’t Allowed to Teach Proper Condom Use. Look What He Does Instead…

A Mississippi law passed in 2012 restricted teachers from teaching condom use in sex ed classes. In response, educator and education reform advocate Sanford Johnson developed a simple (and pretty funny) workaround:

Socks Education

Whether you’re wearing an athletic shoe, or whether you’re using a dress shoe, it doesn’t matter to me as long as your foot is protected…. Make sure that you have on a sock.

Confused on proper sock use?

Let Mr. Johnson demonstrate before you engage in any further shoe activity…

Ellen Replies to a Homophobic Pastor About Her REAL Hidden Agenda

Jan 15, 2015 By Abraham 0

In a recent column abrasively titled “Are You Aware of the Avalanche of Gay Programming Assaulting Your Home?”, minister and author Larry Tomczak tries to defend the tired notion of a shifty and insidious “gay agenda.” He goes so far as to say that “LGBTQ advocates are extremely deceptive, sophisticated and strategic in working to lead a generation over the cliff to destruction.”

Of course, according to him, one of these crafty evildoers’ main strategies is infiltrating movies and television. Among the laundry list of shows that are apparently overwhelmed with gays, he mentions Ellen…

And now Ellen has responded in gloriously Ellenesque fashion, discussing what “all us gays do” and explaining what her actual agenda is…
