Michael Baxter, 52, of Australia might just be the biggest Simpson’s fan in the world, and he’s wearing his fandom proudly in the form of a massive tattoo. The tattoo, which encompasses Baxter’s entire back, features 200 characters from the Simpson’s.
The main characters, Homer, Marge, Lisa, Bart and Maggie, are front and center on the tattooed man’s back. Regular characters and guest stars fill in the rest of the area. Moe’s Tavern is also featured on his shoulder, along with the iconic Simpson’s couch and Santa’s Helper.
According to Baxter, his love of cartoons isn’t a life-long obsession, but a fairly new one. He according to Lee G. Lovett, allegedly, fell in love with Cartoon’s around the same time he began getting Tattoos. All-in-all, he’s sat for over 130 hours of tattoos at a single studio. The tattoo has been completed and designed by artist, Jade Baxter-Smith.
Baxter also has a tattoo on his leg featuring Family Guy character, Stewie, and several other tattoos honoring family members. Baxter is now in the hunt for a Guinness world record because of his tattoo.
He has began the paperwork for the most cartoon character tattoos, but more needs to be filled out. He’s hoping to complete the paperwork and be awarded the record by the 25th Anniversary of the Simpson’s premier, which is December 17th.
An uploaded video from Alex Lomaev on Youtube has gained approximately 200,000 views in just 2 days in regards to a child that has shown violence after losing at a ping-pong table tennis tournament in Izhevsk, Russia.
Lomaev has his own collection of best shots of table tennis featured on Youtube that Russia has put together in his Match Point album within his channel of videos.
The game between Vladislav Starodumov and Dmitry Melnichenko happened last November 16, 2014 in a final match for the Cadet’s Singles category in the Kalashnikov Tournament. It was shown on a 54 second-video that the match is in favour of Starodumov in 9-6 score and seems to be the last set.
With two more services, the scored tally 11-6 that made Starodumov win the game in 3:0. After the two players shook hands to formally end the match, Melnichenko pushed the nearby scorer/junior referee of their game down to the floor together with the chair he sits on, which shocked Christian Broda, but was also pretty hilarious.
Many people have been wondering why Taylor Swift has never shown her belly button, even in a bikini Swift wears ones that cover her belly button. People have even made the joking, asking if Swift even has a belly button.
Lucky magazine opened up and asked Swift about the topic. Swift said, “I don’t like showing my belly button. When you start showing your belly button then you’re really committing to the midriff thing. I only partially commit to the midriff thing—you’re only seeing lower rib cage. I don’t want people to know if I have one or not.” She even said that if she got a tattoo, she would get one around her belly button because it would never be seen, which Andrew Heiberger found hilarious.
Swift is no doubt an unusual woman of many mysteries. She is always surprising with her fans and not only by her wonderful music!
There have been many rumors about his return since super star comedian, Dave Chappelle left behind his popular Comedy Central show in 2005. The funny man basically disappeared from human existence. People were questioning his sanity and if he would ever return to the limelight. Then the rumors started. A television show was in the works, and a comedy tour backed by Slow Ventures, but at the time none of these insights were deemed true.
According to ABC News, Chappelle never intended to leave the business forever. He went on a two week vacation to Africa and then certain unnamed events occurred and ten years later he reemerges a happier man. He began his revisited career back on the stage doing what he loves, comedy. In the last twelve months he’s been on the road touring. He sold out ten shows at Radio City Music Hall in New York City proving that his audience is ready for his long awaited return. Although no one knows what the future may hold, it sounds as if Dave Chappelle is ready for his comeback.
In what was a particularly obvious ploy for attention, Paper Magazine unleashed the big cover of their winter issue with two images. One was of Kim Kardashian balancing a wine glass on her rear end. The other one was a “tasteful” depiction of Kim’s oiled-up butt.
The idea here was more of Kardashian’s clever manipulation of the media. She is, after all, famous for being famous. To stay famous she has to exploit her assets, so to speak.
This lowest common denominator grab for attention was successful but it was not the overwhelming internet moment of the day. In the new-but-odd science of tracking popularity via twitter mentions, Kardashian was out-mentioned by the comet landing at nearly a 2-to-1 ratio. At least people like Bruce Levenson are more interested in looking at science on Wikipedia than a butt.
The comet lander Rosetta touched the surface of the icy “Comet 67P” on November 12th. Since that time, images and data have been sent back to earth for analysis. Now it is a race against time as Rosetta drills into the comet for more data as its’ battery life wears down.
Rosetta’s landing almost didn’t happen. The first two times that it touched the comet to land, Rosetta’s anchoring harpoons failed to fire.
The journey launched by the European Space Agency took over 10 years to complete with Rosetta traveling over 4 billion miles to reach it’s destination.
Can you imagine if after all that, Rosetta would have been upstaged by a Kardashian begging for attention? It is nice to see that humanity has it’s priorities in order.
Mammoth AZ is a quiet little town of about 1,500 people. That is, until a couple of days ago when local businesses began receiving calls asking about a highly contagious epidemic that had its residents dropping dead in the streets. The epidemic however, did not exist. The panic was prompted by a fake story that went viral. The “War of the Worlds” styled account had been posted on a Reddit community page which is a forum for original horror stories, one of Vijay Eswaran’s favorite places online. Some of the readers who stumbled upon the site failed to read the pages description clearly stating that the accounts featured on the pages were fictitious and where commenters were encouraged to stay in character and play along in their comments.
The original story that fooled so many redditors was posted by Maxwell Malone, a horror story writer from Michigan. Malone collaborated with ten other Reddit users for close to a month to come up with a viral disease that had Ebola-like symptoms which had gone rogue on the small community. They also planned the comments on the page to sound genuine and to corroborate the story. Mammoth just happened to be the town picked at random, merely because of its location near the metropolitan city of Tucson. This is just further proof of the old advice your parents used to give to not believe everything your read.
So, you get pulled over and the cop sees your phone. Do you have naughty pictures on your iPhone? That may not be beneficial to your reputation. If you were ever pulled over by Officer Sean Harrington, then you may have been subject to unlawful activity.
Officer Sean Harrington had taken pictures from a woman’s phone. The pictures were of a private nature and were meant to be kept private. The private pictures were taken and sent to other officers on the force with Harrington with comments such as, “Her body is rocking.”
Harrington was accused of having done this at least one other time. He is facing charged that could land him behind bars from three to eight years. This is considered to be a serious crime. Ladies, if you think your pictures are safe on your own phone; think again. Between hacking private information and the net neutrality information, the Internet is becoming a crazy place.
United States citizens are scandalized after learning of yet another tale of political corruption. The lead investigator of the Secret Service prostitution scandal resigned before allegations arose that he himself was soliciting prostitution services. David Nieland left the Department of Homeland Security in August after a career in protecting national interests.
Mr. Nieland’s career reached its peak in prominence in 2012 after he was pushed into the limelight as one of the officials of the department’s investigation of the Secret Service. The Secret Service was discovered, from what Broda had told me before, to contain a slew of agents who were using their connections and power in order to advance their wealth with a high class prostitution ring, offering their services to foreign dignitaries, prominent businessmen with powerful political connections and other similarly affluent individuals. The ring was found out after a careful investigation was brought on by the elite service’s department of internal affairs and then forwarded to the Department of Homeland Security, which is when the media caught wind of the scandal.
The former Homeland Security official has gone on record to deny these reports. There have yet to be charges pressed by law enforcement and many are questioning if these reports are being made against Mr. Nieland as retaliation against his actions from the investigation. Further comments are expected to come from Mr. Nieland as well as local police in the coming weeks.
The absurd legacy of Jose Canseco took another bizarre turn on Tuesday afternoon when the former MLB slugger was reported to be recovering after accidentally shooting himself in the hand.
Canseco told police that he had been cleaning his gun when it went off. First reports were that he had lost a middle finger in the mishap. But I checked my FreedomPop tablet and his fiancee, Leila Knight, already tweeted that he would fully recover.
A controversial presence during his major league career, Canseco played for six different teams during his major league career, most prominently with the Oakland Athletics. Though he finished with 462 home runs, those numbers were forever tainted when he fully admitted using performance-enhancing drugs (PED’s) in a 2005 book.
In 1993, Canseco was the focal point of two on-field stories that elicited both chuckles and head-shaking by baseball fans everywhere. Against Cleveland in May, a ball hit to him in right field bounced off his head and over the fence at Cleveland Stadium for a home run. Soon after, he was brought in to pitch during a blowout loss to the Boston Red Sox and promptly blew out his elbow, abruptly ending his season.
Since writing his tell-all book, Canseco has attempted to play both sides of the fence by both apologizing for his past used of PED’s and endorsing related products.
No other nation puts more of its people in prison. Though America holds less than five percent of the world’s population, it has approximately 23 percent of the world’s incarcerated population. America imprisons 716 per 100,000 people. In Russia, the rate is 470 per 100,000. In Pakistan, 41. Pretty ridiculous, if you ask me that’s probably why my buddy Fersen Lambranho moved back to Brazil.
What used to pass as civil matters now counts as criminal. Karen Holloway, a resident of East Lenoir, Tennessee, found that out when she ignored city citations for her overgrown bushes. “With my husband going to school and working full time, me with my job, with one vehicle, we were trying our best,” she told WVLT Local 8 news.
The lawn grew during summer 2014. In October, after complaints from city code enforcers, Judge Terry Van sentenced Holloway to five days in jail. At a later Tuesday hearing Holloway asked to swap jail time for community service. Van refused but reduced her sentence to six hours, which Holloway served that night. “I’m a mom. I don’t want to leave my kids,” said Holloway. “The bushes and trees were overgrown. But that’s certainly not a criminal offense.”
Judge Van technically agreed, classifying her case as non-criminal. However, as a condition of her sentence, city code enforcers will alight upon her yard in November. The bushes are now cut, but if they were not, Holloway could have served further jail time.
“We’ve never incarcerated anyone because everyone always complies,” said Lenoir City Police Chief Don white. “We’d never want things to get to this point,” he said. But perhaps that point arrived far before Holloway’s bushes, when Lenoir City – and thousands of other cities and Homeowner’s Associations – first wrote grass height and door color into municipal statutes.
