I came across this jarring anti-meth ad and decided to post it. Not that I think any of my readers are users, but a lot of us know people who do or have used meth in the past. People tend to assume it is relatively safe, especially since there are prescription versions available. But its not. It is highly addictive and potentially deadly. But I think the side of meth that is often down played is the aggressive behavior that sometimes accompanies it, that i why i like this commercial.
What do you think?

NYC-based writer/director/actor Greg Scarnici’s rap exposes the bisexual lifestyle. He is a pretty funny guy and does some wicked Amy Winehouse, Britney, and Madonna spoofs. Check out his videos here.

For anyone who finds Christina Aguilera as difficult to understand as me. I found this when I googled lyrics for a song I heard on the radio today. It’s funny/cute.

Came across this cute little article today on abc.com.
Owning a pet cat may help your heart
If you’re not allergic to them, having a cat might be great for your heart.
According to researchers at the University of Minnesota, people who don’t own a cat have about a 40 percent higher risk of dying from heart disease.
Scientists don’t know why, but say their best guess is that having a pet relieves stress and anxiety.
Sorry dog owners — researchers found no protective relationship between man and his so called “best friend.” However, that could be due to the limitations of the study, and not a conclusion about dogs specifically.

Like almost every girl in America, I find myself unable to resist the terrible “confessions” and “bloopers” sections of magazines like Cosmo. Usually they involve being caught in the bedroom by parents, a missing article of clothing in public, awkward sexual moments, or just plan bad luck. But I can across one tonight I wanted to share:
“I’m a professional nanny who works for a family with two kids. One night, the parents were out late at an event. I put the kids to bed and went downstairs to watch television. The material on my thong was really itchy, and it finally got to the point where I couldn’t stop scratching down there. I was so grateful when the parents got home because I could go to my place and change. The next day when I got to work, the mother handed me anti-itch cream and told me I should see a doctor. She informed me that they had a nanny cam and had seen me itching all night long. I tried to explain but could barely get out the words. I was so humiliated.” -Tracy, 26

I thought I was politically motivated:
FEBRUARY 25–Meet Jose Antonio Ortiz. The Pennsylvania man allegedly stabbed his brother-in-law in the stomach after the pair quarreled about their respective support of Democratic presidential candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. According to cops, Ortiz, 28, stabbed Sean Shurelds last Thursday night in the kitchen of an Upper Providence Township home. According to a criminal complaint, a copy of which you’ll find here, the 41-year-old Shurelds, an Obama supporter, told Ortiz that the Illinois senator was “trashing” Clinton (apparently in regard to recent primary and caucus results). Ortiz, a Clinton supporter, replied that “Obama was not a realist.” While not exactly fighting words, the verbal political tiff led to some mutual choking and punching. And, allegedly, a stabbing in the abdomen. Shurelds was flown to Hahnemann University Hospital, where he was admitted in critical condition. (2 pages) Source
While violence is never a good thing, and the two men involved in the story were probably not the brightest, it is refreshing to see people care. Pennsylvania rarely gets to make a difference in the primary season and I hope people don’t waste their opportunity. Obviously I hope everyone gets out and votes for the most qualified candidate (Hint: Hillary Clinton). But even if you are voting for another candidate, or worse yet, another party, take advantages of this opportunity. Research the candidates stances and histories, evaluate what is important to you, and vote!
PS. Politics are great but stabbing someone isn’t the answer. I know it can be frustrating when a friend or relative admits to supporting Obama in spite of his lack of experience, already broken promises, and his inability to provide details about any of the “change” he plans to bring.
