Kyle "Kingsbu" Kingsbury had a surprise for everyone during his weigh-in before his retirement fight with Patrick Cummins in San Jose last Friday. As the clothes came off, Kingsbury bent over when he dropped trou and mooned the cameras and all in attendance with a pair of pale pink "Legalize Gay" briefs. That's a show of support one can get behind. *rimshot*

Solar Flare Almost Ended Modern Life As We Know It: VIDEO

Extreme Solar Storm

For all of the end times prognostication that occurred in 2012, it turns out that modern life actually was almost completely destroyed that year, thanks to an "extreme solar storm" that sent plasma clouds hurtling from the sun at a rate of 3,000 km/s. Described as a "Carrington event", named after English astronomer Richard Carrington who observed a similar storm in 1859, the storm would have hit Earth had it happened only a week sooner, frying all electronics across the globe and leaving an impact that we would still be feeling today. NASA estimates the destruction would have cost $2 trillion.

The soothsayers and doom prophets would have been utterly insufferable.

Check out our weekly guide to make sure you're catching the big premieres, crucial episodes and the stuff you won't admit you watch when no one's looking.

— “Zac Efron was nervous glancing over the top of the waterfall, his body glistening with sweat under the beating sun. He and Bear Grylls had already taken off their shirts in preparation for diving into the chilly waters below. Bear tried to reassure Zac, ‘We started together, we’re gonna finish together.’” No, that’s not an excerpt of erotic fan-fiction. It’s an actual description of what goes down in tonight’s premiere of Running Wild with Bear Grylls. Watch the wilderness guru lead celebs into the unknown (and, who knows, maybe snuggle up to them next to the campfire) tonight at 8 p.m. Eastern on NBC.

Man Stabbed By Man He Was Having Sex With In Florida Cemetery: VIDEO

Cemetery

This is not your True Blood recap, but it may sound like it.

After meeting in a Tallahassee, Florida cemetery at 11:00 at night for a sexual rendezvous, a man was stabbed five times by his would-be lover. WXTL reports that the encounter, which took place on June 24, took a bad turn as soon as the assailant mentioned the victim’s ex-boyfriend: 

The victim said it was during "sexual activity" that Johnson mentioned the victim's ex-boyfriend and then started stabbing him.

Court records show that Johnson told the victim "no one would have to worry" about him anymore.

Law enforcement says the victim was able to kick Johnson out of the car and lock the doors. However, Johnson attempted to get back into the car by gaining access through a slightly open window, the victim told police.

The victim was able to escape and drive off, crashing through the cemetery's fence at the intersection of 4th Ave. and Martin Luther King Blvd.

The victim was taken to the hospital for treatment of his wounds. According to the police report, there were a total of five stab wound; three to chest and one in each arm.

The victim required surgery for his wounds as he suffered internal injuries as a result of the stabbing, mainly a punctured lung and lacerated liver. The assailant, 18-year-old Devante L. Johnson, was later arrested for attempted murder.

Study Finds Gay Neighborhoods Losing LGBT Cultural Identity

Gay_map

In an upcoming book entitled There Goes the Gayborhood, University of British Columbia sociologist Amin Ghaziani says that “fewer same-sex couples reside in historically gay neighborhoods compared to 10 years ago” adding that “the number of gay men who live in gay enclaves [like San Francisco’s Castro district, New York’s Chelsea, Chicago’s Boystown] has declined eight percent while the number of lesbians has dropped 13 percent.”

Ghaziani says that “gentrification, changing attitudes among gays and lesbians, and growing acceptance of same-sex couples” as well as the desire of same-sex parents to live around good schools have all contributed to the dispersal of gays and lesbians from traditional gayborhoods.

“Gay neighborhoods have been crucial to the struggle for freedom, and have produced globally important contributions, from politics to poetry to music and fashion,” Ghaziani says. “The growing acceptance of same-sex couples underlying these findings is extremely positive, but it is important that we continue to find meaningful ways to preserve these culturally important spaces.”
