Skinny Jeans Do More Harm than CUTE

skinnyjeansWoman tend to use the expression that “pain is the price to pay for beauty” but now one beckons to ask is this truly “worth it”?

A 35-year-old Australian woman checked into a hospital after getting trapped in her skinny jeans, according to a study published in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry. You know its a serious situation when it makes it into a medical journal.

The woman had reportedly been helping a family member move, and the repeated squatting in skinny jeans caused her muscles to swell, which led to a feeling of numbness in her feet. Because of the loss of sensation, she tripped and fell on her way home and spent hours on the ground before she was found.

When she checked into the hospital, she still suffered from weak ankles, and her legs were so swollen that her jeans had to be cut off. The woman was treated with intravenous hydration and made a full recovery after four days.

I think the most important and probably only question that should be asked is “WHY IN THE HELL WERE YOU HELPING SOMEONE MOVE IN DAMN SKINNY JEANS”. Now will people possible let their lower halves breathe while tryna be cute.

Dr. Perry Shieh, associate professor of neurology and director of the Neuromuscular Program at the University of California, Los Angeles, believes the incident was the result of repeated squatting in jeans that were too tight – and could not happen from wearing skinny jeans alone.

“The jeans themselves did not cause this,” Shieh tells PEOPLE. “If she was wearing skinny jeans and if she was squatting, the [jeans] could be pinching a muscle that would cause a swelling. If you’re swelling at the calves, that’s going to directly compress the calves and that’s going to cause direct damage to the muscles themselves.”

Though the incident seems like a rare occurance, Shieh did warn against wearing pants that are too tight.

“It’s not going to happen to everyone,” he says. “It depends on how tight [the jeans] are. If they’re really tight then I would be concerned. I would probably wear looser jeans.” Skinny jeans are a hazard and need to be addressed plain and simple.

Teens Create STD Color Changing Condoms

colorchangecondomsTalk about increasing the percentage of safe sex and dropping potentially new sexually transmitted disease cases.  This right here may honestly be a new level of genius.

Muaz Nawaz, Daanyaal Ali, and Chirag Shah, a group of 13 and 14-year-old students from London’s Isaac Newton Academy, wanted to “make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before” without having to go through testing. So they created “smart” condoms.

“We wanted to make something that make detecting harmful STIs safer than ever before, so that people can take immediate action in the privacy of their own homes without the invasive procedures at the doctors,” 14-year-old Ali said. “We’ve made sure we’re able to give peace of mind to users and make sure people can be even more responsible than ever before.”

Their invention, cleverly named the S.T.EYE, is a condom that glows a different color if an STD is detected. No secrets here, guys!

According to reports, the condom uses a built-in indicator that changes to a different color depending on the bacteria or infection it detects. The students said it may glow green for chlamydia, yellow for herpes, purple for human papillomavirus, or blue for syphilis.  This will definitely change the remaining for the fabled “rainbow parties”.

The creation of S.T.EYE earned the young teens the top health innovation prize at the city’s TeenTech Awards, which included £1,000 and a trip to Buckingham Palace, where they’ll recieve their prize.

The TeenTech Awards are intended to promote science, engineering, and technology in schools. At the competition, groups of kids ranging in age from 11 to 16 attempt to create “technology to make life better, simpler or easier.”

But don’t rush out to buy your pack of smart condoms just yet. A spokesperson for TeenTech tells the Daily Dot they’re “very much a concept and…not a finalized design.” Will these condoms completely outsell regular condoms and will they potentially put a halt on sporadic hookups?

Newspaper Headline Confuses Pitchers Talent In Debut

funnyheadlineNow of course this isn’t the first time that a headline in a newspaper was hilariously wrong. But I think we can clearly say this one is kind of funny in itself.

An Oregon newspaper might want to check its auto correct settings as well as its editor after a headline hailed the debut of an “amphibious pitcher.”

The article, which Twitter user Neill Woelk found on page 3B of the June 6 edition of the East Oregonian, bore the headline, “Amphibious pitcher makes debut.”

However, the subject of the story, Oakland Athletics relief pitcher Pat Venditte, is actually ambidextrous — he can pitch with both arms.

Venditte’s ability to pitch underwater, as the headline would imply, has yet to be proven.

Woelk joked Venditte “faces Aquaman in [his] next outing.” Could he be the surprise villain in the upcoming Justice League movie?

Australian Couple Threatens Divorce If Same-Sex Marriage Passes

rainbowflagIn the midst of the world now taking a stand on Same-Sex marriage it now has gotten where everyone isn’t on board with their country promoting equality.

An Australian man said an expected parliament vote on same-sex marriage later this year would “force” him to divorce his wife if the measure passes.

Nick Jensen wrote in an opinion piece for the Canberra CityNews that he and his wife, Sarah, have decided they will get a divorce if the country approves marriage rights for gay and lesbian Australians.

“The decision to divorce is not one we’ve taken lightly. And certainly, it’s not one that many will readily understand. And that’s because it’s not a traditional divorce,” he wrote.

Jensen, a former employee of the Australian Christian Lobby, said he and his wife will continue to live together, raise their children together and will still consider themselves “married by the Church and before God.”

“The reason, however, is that, as Christians, we believe marriage is not a human invention.Our view is that marriage is a fundamental order of creation. Part of God’s intimate story for human history. Marriage is the union of a man and a woman before a community in the sight of God. And the marriage of any couple is important to God regardless of whether that couple recognizes God’s involvement or authority in it.

My wife and I, as a matter of conscience, refuse to recognize the government’s regulation of marriage if its definition includes the solemnization of same sex couples.”

The Canberra CityNews, which printed a photo of Nick and Sarah Jensen on its cover, has come under fire online for publishing the article, which many have branded “homophobic.”

Ian Meikle, editor of the magazine, defended the decision to run the piece.

“I think this couple had an interesting angle, and that it was newsworthy,” he told news.com.au.

“The article does not reflect the opinion of the paper. We published arguments and I decided it was a serious enough argument to genuinely warrant some attention,” he said. “It’s an unusual love story, and what would life be if people didn’t have different ways of life.”

Man I wonder how many American men may try to get this to follow suit if they pass Same Sex marriage across the board nation wide.

K-Cups Just Got A New Flavor….Weed

WeedKCupsJust when people thought that the Keurig (Kcup) single serve coffee cups couldnt get any better with their variety of flavors they go and introduce this special blend….Cannabis, Well its not fully available everywhere but check this out.

While weed coffee isn’t a new concept, a few innovators on the west coast have started making weed-infused k-cups, Yahoo Business reports. One such coffee pod calledCatapult retails for $10 each, or $37 for a pack of 6. It contains 10 milligrams of THC, the compound in marijuana that produces a high.

Uncle Ike’s Pot Shop in Seattle, Washington, sells Catapult, which has been on the market since February 2015. Manager Jennifer Lanzador told The Huffington Post via email that drinking the weed-coffee combo “seems to give a kick from the caffeine, but it isn’t a jittery feeling because of the THC… You get a nice energetic high,” she added.

Recreational weed has only been legal in Washington state for just over a year, but it didn’t take innovators long to get crafty. A new kind of soda “drinkable” called Legal premiered last June to much fanfare, although a planned cold-brewed coffee versionwas stymied by the state’s refrigeration rules. Packed with 22 milligrams of THC, the soda gives drinkers a slight high.

Coffee and soda aside, the future of weed pairings also looks bright. “Obviously, we will never have gummy bears or lollipops — the [Liquor Control Board] determined they appeal to children — but sodas, nuts, chocolates, cookies, lozenges, pretzels, snack mix, even THC pills are being sold and/or developed,” Lanzador told HuffPost. “It is a very exciting time for this industry and providing safe ways to ingest THC is a great alternative to smoking.”

Can you imagine what will happen when this is completely available across the board. And how it may affect or increase a lot of offce productivity.

Couple Die From Being Poisoned While Having Sex In Car

carbonmonoxideNow I know people say that they want to go out having sex, but i dont think I have ever heard of anyone addng on anything to how they go out and I’m pretty sure that this couple didnt expect this either.

A couple was killed by carbon monoxide poisoning while having sex in their car, reports claim.

Violet Iles, 25, and David Long, 32, left the car running with the windows up for at least 90 minutes when they pulled over in Glencoe, Kentucky, on May 13, when temperatures dropped to 4C.

The odorless gas poured out of the rusty tailpipe as the couple had sex, police told WCPO and WKRC-TV.

Tragic: Violet Iles, 25, (left) and David Long, 31, (right) could not smell the odorless gas in their car

They were found at 6.40 the next morning by Long’s brother, Kevin, who was walking his children to the nearby bus stop.

‘I pulled him [Long] out and I tried to do CPR on him, and the paramedics tried to talk me through it over the phone,’ Kevin Long told WCPO.

Whats the lesson of this story, when you decide to get freaky in the car, make sure that the car has passed the local emissions test first.

“Whiskey Vagina” Is A Real Thing For Ladies

WhiskeyVaginaWell fellas you no longer have to worry because it can happen to anybody LITERALLY. The affect that many men have had after a night of hard drinking known as “Whiskey Dick” has now been known to affect females as well.

According to a new study published in the Journal of Sex Research, which included 18 females, booze is a total killjoy when it comes to getting it on and *really* getting off.

The study, which kept each participant at different blood alcohol levels before watching pornographic material and masturbating to reach orgasm, found that ‘alcohol‐induced orgasmic dysfunction’ is a very real thing.

Results revealed that: ‘increasing levels of acute alcohol intoxication are related to systematic changes in female orgasmic experience reflected by physiological, behavioural, and cognitive indices’. We knew it.

One too many whiskey cocktails being a major slow down in the sack is no real shocker (whiskey d*ck is also a thing), because, like most things in life, less is more.

The findings ‘suggest that women’s orgasm will occur more readily under conditions of no alcohol consumption’, though let’s be realistic here – we all need some Dutch courage when it comes to getting our sex game on (naked scarf dance).

‘Modest intake of alcohol, however, may be expected to result in greater feelings of sexual arousal, a more enjoyable orgasmic experience, and only a moderate increase in the time it takes to reach orgasm.’

You heard it hear first, ladies – modesty is everything when it comes to avoiding whiskey vag.

Drink wisely, get yours.

Burglar Falls Asleep During Heist

TIMOTHY-BONTRAGERI guess sometimes you just get sleepy while on the job right?? Well that may be the case for this sticky fingered bandit.

Police in Sarasota, Florida, arrested Timothy Bontrager, 29, Saturday morning after a homeowner woke up to find him sleeping on her couch, WTSP.com reports.

Bontrager allegedly entered the home overnight through an unlocked sliding glass door in the rear of the house.

When the homeowner woke up at about 7:20 a.m. and saw the suspect,she roused him from his sleep and asked why he was there. The suspect apologized and started pacing around the home, only to leave when the victim said she was calling the police, according to NBC-2.com.

Officers arrived at the home at 8 a.m., at which point the victim discovered that her wallet, license, credit cards, cash and personal checks were missing, according to Bradenton.com.

Police took Bontrager into custody a short time later, but he was in shorts, not the pants described by the victim. He was arrested after the victim positively identified him, Sarasota Patch reports.

The pants were found a few hours later in a wooden area, along with the victim’s wallet.

Bontrager has been charged with a burglary of an occupied dwelling and taken to the Sarasota County Jail. He remains in custody on $25,000 bond.

15 Pounds of Cocaine Washes Up On Texas Beach

GALVESTON-BEACH-COCAINE-2-570Well Texas is just all over the news for a variety of reasons now isnt it.

A man in Galveston, Texas, got a big shock Sunday morning while walking along the beach.

The unidentified man found 15 pounds of cocaine with an estimated street value of $175,000, MyFoxHouston.com reports.

He called Galveston Police who gathered up the bags — 30 in all — and took them to the station. After the bags dried out, the powder in them tested positive for cocaine,according to Click2Houston.com.

Galveston Police are still trying to sniff up any suspects, This cocaine discovery, massive as it was, pales in comparison to other finds on Galveston beaches, according to the Houston Chronicle.

In May, 2010, a woman found 16 bricks of cocaine with an estimated worth of $2.1 million. In 2011, a jogger found 25 bricks of coke worth around $675,000.

Is it safe to say that the drug trade is big in Texas as well.

Art Student Has To Perform Naked To Pass Class

UCSDI think that the first question that has to be asked is “Was this mentioned in the syllabus prior to the course?” because if so, WOW you got away with it and if not WOW HOW DO YOU THINK YOU’RE GOING TO GET AWAY WITH IT.

Visual arts students at the University of California, San Diego, must exhibit themselves in the buff before a naked class of 20 and a nude professor or fail an upper-level course, a disgusted mom told KGTV-TV.

But faculty members and former students defend the elective course and maintain that “performing the self” class participants may also employ figurative nudity to pass the final.

The issue is over a syllabus entry that refers to an “erotic self” assignment, requiring students to “create a gesture that traces the outlines or speaks about your ‘erotic self(s).’”

The class description on the Department of Visual Arts website says:  “Using autobiography, dream, confession, fantasy or other means to invent one’s self in a new way, or to evoke the variety of selves in our imagination, the course experiments with and explores the rich possibilities available to the contemporary artist in his or her own persona.”

BRETT STALBAUM/ASSOCIATED PRESS

University of California, San Diego, art professor Ricardo Dominguez, pictured in 2008, said he hadn’t received any complaints about the course in 11 years of teaching it.

UCSD professor Ricardo Dominguez has been lighting his classroom by candlelight and baring it all alongside his students as part of the assignment for 11 years and never received any complaints, he told the TV station.

“It’s a standard canvas for performance art and body art,” Dominguez said. “If they are uncomfortable with this gesture, they should not take the course.”

But the student’s mother, who is not identified, accused the professor of “perversity” and said the final test was “just wrong.”

Visual arts students (not these) at the University of California, San Diego, must pose naked for an assignment on the ‘erotic self.’

“To blanketly say, ‘You must be naked in order to pass my class’ — it makes me sick to my stomach,” she said.

Facebook users peppered the local TV channel’s Facebook page with responses to the story, with several people expressing amazement and outrage about the course.

“As a teacher, I’m appalled that this professor is doing this in the name of teaching art,” one user wrote. “There are many other ways to get students to dig deeper into themselves to learn, grow and experience.”

The Geisel Library at University of California, San Diego, is where an angry mom says her daughter must show off her naked body to pass a visual art course.

“That ‘Professor’ sounds like an undercover chester the molester … using his profession to fulfill his pervert needs,” another commenter agreed.

But thsoe who said they took the course endorsed the naked day.

“We had a choice between being nude or doing something emotionally ‘naked’ and every student but one chose to do the nude performance,” one commenter said. “It was uncomfortable for some of us but we were adults and knew what we were getting ourselves into from day one of the class.”

KGTV-TV

The nudity is not compulsory, UCSD faculty and former students said.

No stranger to controversy, Dominguez once faced a congressional investigation and endured reports by then-Fox News talk show host Glenn Beck for developing a cellphone GPS that helps people cross the U.S.-Mexico border safely, his faculty profile page says.

Dominguez and visual arts division chairman Jordan Crandall didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment Sunday night.
