  1. Fortunately, the Swedish boy dragged into the lair of a hibernating bear had his lightsaber with him.

  2. That was one fast bear to grab the boy as he was skiing by! :| Isn't it more likely the boys found the lair and antagonized the sleeping animal? Yea.

  3. If Ricky Martin is indicative of the kind of men I'd meet in hell, then I'd say Satan chose one hell of an ambassador.

  4. Governor Shumlin has been a great advocate for us. In his 2010 election campaign against an anti-gay Republican he advertised his role in VT's marriage equality bill and proudly put the issue on the table. He put his opponent on the defensive. And how he's helping out in RI when he doesn't have to. Gay people worked hard on his campaign because he worked hard for our civil rights. A win-win relationship. Granted, VT has a strong liberal base, but I hope more Democrats/Independents follow his lead and more anti-gay Republicans are forced into their homophobic corners.

  5. You mean that Facebook finally found a way to monetize itself by selling YOUR information.

    Sucker-berg. Will people EVER learn.

  7. I had the same conversation with an aunt a hundred times:

    Aunt: Michael, what you need is a good girl.

    Michael: No, what I need is a bad boy.

    Aunt: You're going to hell.

    Now that I've seen that picture of Ricky, I'm packing right now.

  8. Those Japanese Doritos are old news. Why do people keep reblogging about them? Old, old news. It must be because it is whacky and Japanese, white people looooove things that are whacky and Japanese

  9. Ricky Martin gets better with age! Damn boy!

    Posted by: Matt | Mar 29, 2011 8:49:55 PM

  10. Ricky - don't shave the chest! Some of us like a little fur - it butches you up a bit....but just a bit.

    Damn, he looks good.

  11. Ricky can do whatever he likes with his body; I won't complain. And as friends have pointed out, if you're going to hell because you're on friendly terms with the devil, wouldn't he make it a fun place to be in appreciation? Heaven sounds dull by comparison.

  12. 80% Natalie Portman? So that's why the dancing kinda sucked.

    Posted by: Glenn | Mar 30, 2011 2:14:36 AM

  13. After hearing what Ricky did with Target, I agree.

    It really bothers me that NPR seems to be justifying that our government is keeping an American citizen in solitary confinement indefinitely. The terrorists at Guantanamo have more rights and privileges! And the fact that he's gay really shouldn't matter.

  14. @ JESUS (and who ever thought I'd be saying that) I've never seen the Doritos thing, and it made my week! Electric taint noogie! I'm SO doing that to the first victim to cross my path.

  15. Re: Portman, the number of shots is not the same as the duration of the shots. I still say we saw mostly the double, especially in anything that approached real dancing.
