  • Stone Cold Steve Austin went on a spectacular rant in support of gay marriage.

    Last year on his podcast, WWE legend Stone Cold Steve Austin went on a fiery, NSFW rant in support of gay marriage that's equal parts intense and humorous. Maybe the most interesting thing about it, though, is that one of the biggest, baddest wrestlers in the pretend wrestling game loudly gave his support to same-sex marriage and it went largely unnoticed for several months. Which makes sense, in that it shouldn’t be a big deal, and probably wouldn't be if he also didn't take a folding chair to the skull of gay marriage opponents who claim to have God is on their side:

  • This interactive map pretty much has everything that happens in Game of Thrones (show and books).

    Show that dubious significant other that it's not that complicated...honestly. 
    (Quartermaester)

    What do you get when you combine the Google Maps API and an obsessive level of detail to the world of both the A Song of Ice and Fire book series and its HBO adaptation Game of Thrones? You get Quartermaester.info, a great way to lose a large amount of time reliving (and redying) your favorite characters story arcs, as told by the GPS trails of the characters as you scroll forward through chapters or episodes. It can get pretty sad, though, when a little skull pops up and the line stops moving.

  • A guy posted a profile pic of himself hula dancing, then everyone broke out photoshopping.

    These days, you have to be careful, because you never know when a photoshop battle is going to break out. The latest one erupted when redditor revolver925 posted a photo of himself dancing with a hula girl at college admissions event he attended. A friend of his thought the picture was funny, just not quite funny enough, so he opened up photoshop and digitally plopped his friend into a few images.

    The guy got a kick out of the pics and decided to share them with reddit, who collectively decided the photos still weren't quite funny enough, so they pitched in with their own 'shopping skills and finished the job.

  • Today in sexism: The only woman in GameStop's senior management is a fictional adventure lady with huge breasts.

    Although Lara Croft (of Tomb Raider fame) has apparently been a member of the GameStop executive team since at least December, this amusing in-joke wasn't widely known until Valleywag spotted it yesterday. By itself, there's nothing wrong with the idea of whimsically putting a popular video game character on your list of executive officers—and once you're hiring fictional execs, I would certainly like it to be equal-opportunity.

    That being said, if the closest thing you have to a diversity program is your fictional video game coworker...maybe save the charming antics until after you've hired an actual woman so you don't look like a bunch of 13-year-olds who think boobs are hilarious. Huge, digitally-rendered boobs (they've toned them down a fair amount, though).


    No one's saying you don't have a strong resume. Now, about your open wounds... (via Gamestop)

    Lara Croft has always been controversial; she's both a female heroine in a genre notably devoid of them and simultaneously a symbol for the industry's adolescent fascination with absurdly-proportioned and poorly-armored females. I don't think any of this is a reason she wouldn't make a great Vice President, I just think maybe give it to a human lady who got hired for her education and job experience first. (There are two human women on the board, though.)

  • 7 ways to reach out to your ex-boyfriend on his birthday.

    posted yesterday

    Why do our exes' birthdays make us feel like we have to do something? Maybe we feel a sense of obligation to continue the charade of post-relationship friendship. Maybe birthdays make us reflect on how quickly life is passing us by and regret all the horrible things we never got to say. Maybe we just want to ruin our ex's day by reminding him we exist. Maybe we think this would be an excellent opportunity to get laid.

    Or maybe it's a little of all of those that drives us to choose one of these 7 options for reaching out to your ex-boyfriend on his birthday:

    1. The casual text.

    The goal: Prove you're over him.

    The ideal casual birthday text should be so breezy it hurts. The emotional implication of your one-sentence, abbreviation-filled text message is that you barely even remember being in a relationship with this person. It could be anyone's birthday today—an old college acquaintance, an elderly aunt, your UPS guy—and you'd be equally pumped for them.

  • A guy was in the hospital for lung surgery. His dad had a lot of fun with the whiteboard outside his hospital room.

    posted yesterday


    Thank you, Dad, for the healing power of laughter and mortification in front of these nurses.
    (via redditor Dawsonmadness)

    According to redditor Dawsonmadness, his or her brother was in the hospital for lung surgery and their dad decided to play with their whiteboard. I'm sure he did this in the hopes that one of the doctors would ask him about big butts and he'd be all like "what?" and everyone else would be like "gotcha!" and he'd be like "I'm having lung surgery, maybe raucous laughter isn't the medicine I need right now."

    It's still pretty sweet though. Maybe he'll get lucky and a doctor will read his son's blood pressure as 36 over 24 over 36, which is great, but only if you're 5'3".

  • Someone had a very happy birthday indeed with this cake shaped like a unicorn farting a rainbow.

    Whoever Valerie is, she must have some pretty awesome friends, because she got the sweetest birthday cake ever. Natalie Sideserf of Sideserf Cake Studio in Austin, Texas makes cake dreams come true. With this particular cake, someone dreamed of a unicorn farting a rainbow, and it came out looking exactly as majestic as you'd hope. This isn't a cake to eat; this is a cake to make a wish on and put under your pillow at night. 


    Yes, that does say "40th birthday."

  • 42 inexplicable signs you'll really wish you knew the backstory behind.

    Because he will break your heart. (via)

    This list is dedicated to the idiots, the drunk ones, the high ones, the ones who think aliens are controlling their minds. These idiots have created problems so bizarre that no normal person ever thought to say "hey, you shouldn't do that," until they went and did. And so now we have to leave warning signs that make no sense, except to the dangerously unhinged. This list also celebrates people who create spaces where creative insanity is encouraged. These are the people that have signs inviting you in for weirdnesses you'd rather not even contemplate. These signs bridge the world of the sane and insane. We have no clue what they mean.

  • Man on trial for murder is concerned about his giant neck tattoo of the word "MURDER."

    posted yesterday


    Could be worse. He could have gone with "GUILTY."

    It's hard for a jury to remain impartial, harder still when the guy on trial has the crime he's being tried for written all over his neck.

    At some point in time, Jeffrey Chapman decided to have the word "MURDER" tattooed backwards across his neck. Not a big deal, we all like to be reminded of our favorite things every time we look in a mirror. But in a wacky coincidence, Chapman is about to be put on trial for the 2011 murder of Damon Galliart, whose body was found by hunters in a ditch in Great Bend, KS. What are the odds?

    According to the New York Daily News, Chapman's lawyer filed a motion to have the tattoo removed or blacked out before the trial, claiming the jury might have trouble remaining impartial if they see that the defendent loves murder so much that he wanted it to be the thing that connects his head to his body. Prosecutors are fine with Chapman covering up the tattoo, but they don't want to transport Chapman to a licensed tattoo artist to have the tattoo inked over.

    The only alternative left is to pick a jury full of people who also have the word "MURDER" tattooed on their necks. It is still a jury of one's peers, correct?

    Couldn't Chapman have just worn his crime on a novelty tee shirt, like the guy in this mugshot who got busted for DUI?

  • A bunch of kids spotted Charlie Sheen partying in Paris and turned it into a photo op.

    posted 04/22/2014

    If someone told me they ran into a drunk Charlie Sheen in Paris recently, I'd assume they meant the Paris Las Vegas Hotel. Because it's hard to imagine Charlie sitting anywhere for eleven hours, let alone while strapped into a seat on an international flight and unable to smoke. That's why a bunch of American kids on vacation were startled recently when they ran into a well-oiled Masheen in actual Paris. Charlie, who alway seems to be up for making friends and having a good time (unless he thinks you just stole his watch), happily posed for pictures, and even planted a few kisses on his new pals, possibly believing they were butch-looking French chicks.
