Unbelievable dude…watch this guy lose his fucking mind over absolutely nothing. If you’ve never been to the Trailer Bar before in Surf City you’re totally missing out bro. It’s literally a modified single wide trailer equipped with a massive front deck. Outside there’s a beautiful display of country music, cornhole, picnic tables, and a beer stand. Inside there is a pool table and sound stage separated by a U shaped bar. It’s utterly impossible to get a drink unless you know the bartenders by name. It’s a fucking pure genius money machine for some low budget redneck. The guy pulls in all the jar heads from Jacksonville, white trash cougars, beach bums, and young sluts visiting daddy’s beach house for the weekend who want to go slumin. I just love their slogin “Come On In, We Just Look Expensive”.
MAILONLINE – This is the shocking moment a U.S. marine appears to savagely beat a taxi driver in a drunken attack which left the cabbie needing facial surgery. John Adam Kinosh is alleged to have repeatedly smashed driver Charles Hawkesworth across the face after becoming argumentative with the taxi driver in Surf City, North Carolina. The driver told how Kinosh allegedly became enraged at being told to split his fare in the early hours of Sunday morning, after ordering a cab home. The marine, a Gunnery Sgt assigned to Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command, allegedly battered the driver around the head after an argument, leaving him with multiple facial fractures and needing 15 stitches. The 30-year-old marine now faces two counts of assault inflicting serious injury and one count of communicating threat, according to NBC affiliate WECT. The taxi driver then told how Kinosh attacked him, after which he said ‘all I could see was blood’. Hawkesworth told WWAY: ‘He was really confrontational from the get-go. ‘When he started screaming at me, I knew at that point I was probably going to get hit.’ Jerry Coston, a dispatcher for Island Taxi, told the Jacksonville Daily News: ‘We were trying to turn a $25 fare into a $12 fare for [Kinosh] and he got all upset.
SURF CITY, NC – Authorities in Pender County said the man wanted for an assault on a taxi driver over the weekend has turned himself into a mental health facility. Video released from a Surf City cab comany shows the brutal beating on one of its drivers over the weekend.Now, the suspect from the video has identified himself as 30-year-old Adam Kinosh. Kinosh is a Marine stationed at Camp Lejeune. Surf City police said that Gy. Sgt. Kinosh was picked up at the Trailer Bar; the timestamp on the video displays the time of the assault as around 1 a.m. Sunday. The video was released by Island Cab Company owner Rex Bowen. A driver of that cab has been identified as Charles Hawkesworth. According to Brittany Ann Schwartz, J.R.’s girlfriend, Hawkensworth received multiple fractures to his face including a broken bone under his eye socket, and bones around his sinuses. Police investigators believe that Kinosh thought he was being ripped off on the cab fare, and that’s what led to the assault. Kinish has not yet been arrested, but police expect him to be charged with assault inflicting injury and communicating threats. Monday morning, Kinosh was at the Oak Mental Evaluation Center.
Poor guy didn’t deserve this.

Shit American Soccer Fans Say
That’s it. Chuck Norris has spoken. Warns of a 1000 years of darkness if Obama is re-elected. Obama, ya done son.
BREITBART – Action movie hero Chuck Norris released a video with his wife urging evangelical Christians to vote saying that America faces “1,000 years of darkness” if President Barack Obama is reelected.
“If we look to history, our great country and freedom are under attack, We’re at a tipping point and, quite possibly, our country as we know it may be lost forever if we don’t change the course in which our country is headed.”
WND – We are very excited to announce that “Last Ounce of Courage” has been named first theatrical motion picture to be awarded with my “Chuck Norris Seal of Approval,” in promotion of this independent film.
On October 22, 2007, Norris announced his endorsement of Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee for President. Norris said, “I believe the only one who has all of the characteristics to lead America forward into the future is ex-Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee.”
After the 2008 presidential election, Norris drafted a letter to President-elect Barack Obama, stating that he should “use and cite theConstitution … protect American life … learn from the mistakes of your Democratic predecessors … [and] lead more from the center”.
On November 18, 2008, Norris became one of the first members of show business to express support for the California Proposition 8 ban on same-sex marriage, and he chided activists for “interfering” with the democratic process and the double standard he perceived in criticizing the LDS Church without criticizing African Americans, who had voted for the measure by a wide margin.
During the 2012 presidential election, Norris first recommended Ron Paul, and then later formally endorsed Newt Gingrich as the Republican presidential candidate. After Gingrich suspended his campaign in May 2012, Norris endorsed Republican presumptive nominee Mitt Romney, despite Norris having previously accused Romney of flip-floppingand of trying to buy the nomination for the Republican Party candidacy for 2012.

WIKIPEDIA – The game originated as a sport in Britain during the 1880s, where it was played among the upper-class as an after-dinner parlour game. It has been suggested that the game was first developed by British military officers in India or South Africa who brought it back with them. A row of books were stood up along the center of the table as a net, two more books served as rackets and were used to continuously hit a golf-ball from one end of the table to the other. Alternatively table tennis was played with paddles made of cigar box lids and balls made of champagne corks. The popularity of the game led game manufacturers to sell the equipment commercially. Early rackets were often pieces of parchment stretched upon a frame, and the sound generated in play gave the game its first nicknames of “wiff-waff” and “ping-pong”. A number of sources indicate that the game was first brought to the attention of Hamley’s of Regent Streetunder the name “Gossima”. The name “ping-pong” was in wide use before British manufacturer J. Jaques & Son Ltd trademarked it in 1901. The name “ping-pong” then came to be used for the game played by the rather expensive Jaques’s equipment, with other manufacturers calling it table tennis. A similar situation arose in the United States, where Jaques sold the rights to the “ping-pong” name to Parker Brothers.
The next major innovation was by James Gibb, a British enthusiast of table tennis, who discovered novelty celluloid balls on a trip to the US in 1901 and found them to be ideal for the game. This was followed by E.C. Goode who, in 1901, invented the modern version of the racket by fixing a sheet of pimpled, or stippled, rubber to the wooden blade. Table tennis was growing in popularity by 1901 to the extent that table tennis tournaments were being organized, books on table tennis were being written, and an unofficial world championship was held in 1902. During the early 1900s, the game was banned in Russia because the rulers at the time believed that playing the game had an adverse effect on players’ eyesight.
In 1921, the Table Tennis Association was founded in Britain, and the International Table Tennis Federation followed in 1926. London hosted the first official World Championships in 1926. In 1933, the United States Table Tennis Association, now called USA Table Tennis, was formed.
I don’t know how they do this shit man, seriously. The slightest mistake and you’re dead. How do you keep your hand on the gas running 160mph into a blind curve? Balls of steel my friend. It’s either balls of steel, or they actually have no balls at all, therefore they could give two shits whether they die or not. Either way, it’s amazing to watch so check it out.

WIKIPEDIA – The Isle of Man ( /ˈmæn/; Manx: Ellan Vannin, pronounced [ˈɛlʲən ˈvanɪn]), otherwise known simply as Mann (Manx: Mannin,IPA: [ˈmanɪn]), is a self-governing British Crown Dependency, located in the Irish Sea between the islands of Great Britain and Irelandwithin the British Isles. The head of state is Queen Elizabeth II, who holds the title of Lord of Mann. The Lord of Mann is represented by a Lieutenant Governor, but its foreign relations and defence are the responsibility of the British Government. Although the United Kingdom does not usually intervene in the island’s domestic matters, its “good government” is ultimately the responsibility of the Crown (that is, in practice, the Government of the United Kingdom).
The island has been inhabited since before 6500 BC. Gaelic cultural influence began in the 5th century AD, and the Manx language, a branch of the Gaelic languages, gradually emerged. In the 9th century, the Norse began to settle there. A Norse-Gaelic culture arose and the island came under Norse control. In 1266, the island became part of Scotland, as formalised by the Treaty of Perth. After a period of alternating rule by the kings of Scotland and England, the island came under the feudal lordship of the English Crown in 1399. The lordship revested into the British Crown in 1764, but the island never became part of the kingdom of Great Britainor its successor the United Kingdom, retaining its status as an internally self-governing Crown dependency.
WIKIPEDIA – The International Isle of Man TT (Tourist Trophy) Race is a motorcycle racing event held on the Isle of Man and was for many years the most prestigious motorcycle race in the world. The event was part of the FIM Motorcycle Grand Prix World Championshipduring the period 1949–1976 before being transferred to the United Kingdom after safety concerns and run by the FIM as the British Grand Prix for the 1977 season. The Isle of Man TT Races became part of the TT Formula 1 Championship from 1977 to 1990 to preserve the event’s racing status. From 1989 the racing has been developed by the Isle of Man Department of Tourism as the Isle of Man TT Festival.
The race is run in a time-trial format on public roads closed for racing by the provisions of an Act of Tynwald (the parliament of the Isle of Man). The first race was held on Tuesday 28 May 1907 and was called the International Auto-Cycle Tourist Trophy. The event was organised by the Auto-Cycle Club over 10 laps of the St John’s Short Course of 15 miles 1,470 yards for road-legal touring motorcycles with exhaust silencers, saddles, pedals and mud-guards.
The future of the TT is always in doubt with regards to the safety, especially “Mad Sunday” when any member of the public can ride the mountain section of the course which is open one way from Ramsey to Douglas (although since 2005 this section, the mountain road is one way during the entire fortnight from hairpin to creg-ny-baa). The TT races are extremely dangerous because of the high speeds on very narrow, twisting streets, roads and lanes flanked by stone walls and even buildings. Between 1907 and 2009 (at the end of 2009 TT races period) there have been 237 deaths during official practices or races on the Snaefell Mountain Course (this number includes the riders killed during Manx Grand Prix and the Clubman TT races).
This summer, the 30-member cheer team from Reitz Memorial attended a four-day, “elite” level cheer camp held by the Universal Cheerleaders Association at the University of Tennessee. The same cheer camp the cheerleaders of Reitz Memorial have been attending for more than a decade.
Now, an anonymous letter written by the mother of one of the cheerleaders (see the letter below) is making the rounds. It was sent to media outlets and dropped in random mailboxes around Evansville. The letter alleges that some horrific hazing took place at this cheer camp.
According to the letter, all the junior cheerleaders pooped in a single toilet and then locked the sophomore cheerleaders inside with the toilet, warning them there’d be trouble if they flushed. They then forced them to strip and give lap dances to stripped-down junior cheerleaders who treated it as a contest and mocked the sophomore cheerleaders bodies, calling them fat and ugly.
This all lasted three hours, during which many of the sophomore girls were crying and one even peed herself in fear.
The juniors told the sophomores that they would lose their place on the squad if they didn’t participate in the hazing, told anyone about it, or if they didn’t do the same thing to the sophomores next year.
After the hazing was reported to the school an investigation was launched during which the juniors admitted to the hazing, but said that they were forced to do it by coaches Jill Mitchell and Kim Schmidt who told them that it was a 15-year tradition and they’d be kicked off the team if they didn’t do the hazing that hey had also suffered when they were sophomores.
The coaches said it was a bonding experience and it’d bring them closer together.
Now the sophomores are being harassed by the juniors and seniors at school and online.
Mitchell and Schmidt have denied all the claims against them but have resigned anyway. 14 News spoke to someone who claims to have been part of the hazings and confirms the account in the letter.
The school refuses to comment on the incident, but has said that some students have been disciplined and three coaches have been asked to resign.
Dude, this is priceless. Are you fucking kidding me? You can’t make this shit up. So you’re telling me a bunch of prissy ass catholic school girls took shits in the same toilet one after another without flushing, then locked all the younger bitches in there for fun. Which alpha female orchestrated this type of elaborate sting operation? I’d like to see a picture of this queen dike. Then you force these shit stained youngsters to give you lap dances while you call them fat and ugly. Which one of these virgins aka closet sluts had her iPhone out behind the scenes catching this one? I predict a shaky youtube video going viral on this very soon. Just wait…it will happen.

Wonder if all local Chinese restaurants have already retained his services when he gets out of jail?
Officers found the skinned and gutted remains of a cat inside, and Hofstad wearing the cat’s tail and a piece of its “internals” around his neck on a rope, with his face painted. Police said he had eaten parts of the cat, while some of its other internal organs were kept in a cooler.
Where in the hell did this guy get a fucking cooler? Great idea though, gotta keep those organs fresh.
Hofstad told police he had recently been released from jail and had nowhere to live. He said he had not eaten in a few days, so he hit the cat with a stick and then stabbed it.
Why the cat would go anywhere near some crazy human with a stick and their face painted we will never know. He obviously didn’t have any food to lure it in with. Dumbass cat.
He planned to stuff the animal and save the skeleton “for a decoration for a party.”
Yeah, I was going to use the skeleton as a centerpiece for the table at Thanksgiving with my totally sane family. Fucking cops always fucking some shit up. Next time, I will be more careful and make sure to not paint my face and break and enter when I do this. Totally worth two years in jail though, that cat tasted fucking amazing!
No joke. This is some real government conspiracy bullshit. Wanna blow you’re fucking mind? Check out these videos, son! You’ll see what I’m talking about. I’m mean, seriously, just go ahead and legalize the shit. What are we waiting for? The country could save billions by not policing it, apparently now billions from unnecessary medicare expenses, plus make billions from taxing it. Ever heard of a WIN-WIN-WIN situation? Nobody has ever died from it. Nobody has ever lost their fucking minds and started eating peoples faces off on it. What are the side effects? Sleepy, relaxed, easily entertained, hungry, and horny. Have you and your girl ever gone to bed high? The sex is fuckin’ amazing! Bucket list that shit if you’ve never done it. Who’s idea was it to make weed illegal in the first place? Thanks bro. Great call. You nailed it.
WORLDTRUTH – CANNABIS IS A HIGHLY EFFICIENT NATURAL CANCER CURE.
Ever since the mid 70s, medical scientists have been well aware of the beneficial effects of cannabinoid compounds over cancerous cells. Thanks to modern science, over a dozen studies conducted during recent years have been able to partially reveal just how it works. Yet cannabis is still not endorsed by pharmaceutical companies as a cancer cure, and since it is not promoted through mainstream channels, very few people are aware of its benefits. Consequently, it is not sought after as an alternative to disfiguring chemotherapy and other harmful drugs.
Laboratory tests conducted in 2008 by a team of scientists formed as a joint research effort between Spain, France and Italy, and published inThe Journal Of Clinical Investigation, showed that the active ingredient in marijuana, known as tetrahydrocannabinol or THC, can function as a cure for brain cancer by inducing human glioma cell death through stimulation of autophagy.
The study concluded that via the same biochemical process THC could terminate multiple types of cancers, affecting various cells in the body. Other studies have shown that cannabinoids may work by various mechanisms, including inhibiting cell growth, inducing cell death, and inhibiting tumor metastasis.
What is amazing is that while cannabinoids effectively target and kill cancerous cells, they do not affect healthy, normal cells and may actually protect them against cellular death. Moreover, cannabinoids are also researched for their pain-modulation and anti-inflammatory abilities as they bind to special receptors in the brain, much like opioid derivatives that are commonly prescribed today.
Further evidence to support the effects of cannabis extract on malignant cells comes from the real life experience of individuals who have successfully overcome cancer by using cannabis oil. Examples include a patient, who managed to completely cure his skin cancer by simply applying cannabis oil onto the affected areas of the skin, as well as another, who recovered from a severe head injury with the aid of hemp oil.
One of the cannabinoids that has displayed amazing medical properties is cannabidiol, or CBD – a non-psychoactive compound that is regarded by some as the medical discovery of the 21st century, and with good reason. Research indicates that CBD can relieve convulsions, reduce inflammation, lower anxiety and suppress nausea, while also inhibiting cancer development. In addition, CBD has exhibited neuroprotective properties, relieving symptoms of dystonia and proving just as effective as regular antipsychotics in the treatment of schizophrenia.
What stands out is that from the vast amount of research and data available, as well as the personal experiences of cancer survivors, is that no chemotherapy currently being used medically can match the non-toxic anti-carcinogenic and anti-tumorigenic effects of these natural plant compounds.
This is a great movie called “Proof Weed Cures Cancer“
YOLO – No worries FEMA. Go on back home. We got this. Kinda…
HUFF POST – NEW ORLEANS — Hurricane Isaac began a slow, drenching slog inland from the Gulf of Mexico on Wednesday, pushing water over a rural Louisiana levee and stranding some people in homes and cars as the storm spun into a newly fortified New Orleans exactly seven years after Katrina.
Although Isaac was much weaker than the 2005 hurricane that crippled the city, the threat of dangerous storm surges and flooding from heavy rain was expected to last all day and into the night as the immense comma-shaped storm crawled across Louisiana.
Army Corps spokeswoman Rachel Rodi said the city’s bigger, stronger levees were withstanding the assault.
“The system is performing as intended, as we expected,” she said. “We don’t see any issues with the hurricane system at this point.”
There were initial problems with pumps not working at the 17th Street Canal, the site of a breach on the day Katrina struck, but those pumps had been fixed, Rodi said.
Rescuers in boats and trucks plucked a handful of people who became stranded by floodwaters in thinly populated areas of southeast Louisiana. Authorities feared many more could need help after a night of slashing rain and fierce winds that knocked out power to more than 500,000 people.
The extent of the damage was not entirely clear because officials did not want to send emergency crews into harm’s way. In Plaquemines Parish, a fishing community south of New Orleans, about two dozen people who stayed behind despite evacuation orders needed to be rescued.
“I think a lot of people were caught with their pants down,” said Jerry Larpenter, sheriff in nearby Terrebonne Parish. “This storm was never predicted right since it entered the Gulf. It was supposed to go to Florida, Panama City, Biloxi, New Orleans. We hope it loses its punch once it comes in all the way.”
As Isaac’s eye Isaac passed overhead, authorities in armored vehicles saved a family whose roof was ripped off, Larpenter said.
Two police officers had to be rescued by boat after their car became stuck. Rescuers were waiting for the strong winds to die down before moving out to search for other people.
“The winds are too strong and the rain too strong,” Plaquemines Parish spokeswoman Caitlin Campbell said.
Water driven by the large and powerful storm flooded over an 18-mile stretch of one levee in Plaquemines Parish. The levee, one of many across the low-lying coastal zone, is not part of the new defenses constructed in New Orleans after Katrina.
Isaac was packing 80 mph winds, making it a Category 1 hurricane. It came ashore at 7:45 p.m. EDT Tuesday near the mouth of the Mississippi River, driving a wall of water nearly 11 feet high inland and soaking a neck of land that stretches into the Gulf.
The storm stalled for several hours before resuming a slow trek inland, and forecasters said that was in keeping with the its erratic history. The slow motion over land means Isaac could be a major soaker, dumping up to 20 inches of rain in some areas. But every system is different.
“It’s totally up to the storm,” said Ken Graham, chief meteorologist at the National Weather Service in Slidell, La.
Isaac’s winds and sheets of rain whipped New Orleans, where forecasters said the city’s skyscrapers could be subject to gusts up to 100 mph.
In Mississippi, the main highway that runs along the Gulf, U.S. 90, was closed in sections by storm surge flooding. At one spot in Biloxi, a foot of water covered the highway for a couple of blocks, and it looked like more was coming in. High tide was likely to bring more water.
In Pass Christian, a Mississippi coastal community wiped out by hurricanes Camille and Katrina, Mayor Chipper McDermott was optimistic Isaac would not deal a heavy blow.
“It’s not too bad, but the whole coast is going to be a mess,” he said.
McDermott stood on the porch of the $6 million municipal complex built after Katrina, with walls of 12-inch-thick concrete to withstand hurricane winds. As he looked out toward the Gulf of Mexico, pieces of a structure that had stood atop the city’s fishing pier washed across the parking lot.
Tens of thousands of people had been told ahead of Isaac to leave low-lying areas of Mississippi and Louisiana, including 700 patients of Louisiana nursing homes. Mississippi shut down the state’s 12 shorefront casinos.
The hurricane also canceled commemoration ceremonies Wednesday for Katrina’s 1,800 dead in Louisiana and Mississippi.
The storm drew attention because of its timing — coinciding with the Katrina anniversary and the first major speeches of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
Isaac promised to test a New Orleans levee system bolstered by $14 billion in federal repairs and improvements after the catastrophic failures during Katrina. But in a city that has already weathered Hurricane Gustav in 2008, many people had faith.
“I feel safe,” said Pamela Young, who was riding out the storm in the Lower 9th Ward with her dog, Princess, in a new, two-story home built to replace one destroyed by Katrina.
“If the wind isn’t too rough, I can stay right here,” she said, tapping on her wooden living room coffee table. “If the water comes up, I can go upstairs.”
Isaac also posed political challenges with echoes of those that followed Katrina, a reminder of how the storm became a symbol of government ineptitude.
President Barack Obama sought to demonstrate his ability to guide the nation through a natural disaster, and Republicans tried to reassure residents as they formally nominated former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as their presidential candidate.
There was already simmering political fallout from the storm. Louisiana’s Republican Gov. Bobby Jindal, who canceled his trip to the convention in Tampa, said the Obama administration’s disaster declaration fell short of the federal help he had requested. Jindal said he wanted a promise from the federal government to be reimbursed for storm preparation costs.
FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said such requests would be addressed after the storm.
Obama promised that Americans will help each other recover, “no matter what this storm brings.”
“When disaster strikes, we’re not Democrats or Republicans first, we are Americans first,” Obama said at a campaign rally at Iowa State University. “We’re one family. We help our neighbors in need.”
Along the Gulf coast east of New Orleans, veterans of past hurricanes made sure to take precautions.
Bonnie Chortler of Waveland, Miss., lost her home during Katrina. After hearing forecasts that Isaac could get stronger and stall, she decided to evacuate to her father’s home in Red Level, Ala.
A slow storm can cause “a lot more havoc,” she said, “because it can knock down just virtually everything” if it hovers long enough.
Those concerns were reinforced by local officials, who imposed curfews in three Mississippi counties.
The storm was “pushing that wave action in,” said Harrison County Emergency Operations Director Rupert Lacy. “And there’s nowhere for that water to go until it dissipates.”

Dude, you just can’t fuck with Michael Jordan. Although, I did meet the guy a long time ago briefly at the Country Club of North Carolina. He was a complete dick head. I was working as the cart boy…he didn’t tip a damn thing and he told his buddy not to tip either AS he was handing me a $10 bill. Boo hoo who gives a shit, assholes finish first, but you still can’t fuck with Michael Jordan.

Scientists Can Now Hack Brains!
Researchers from the University of California and University of Oxford in Geneva figured out a way to pluck sensitive information from a person’s head, such as PIN numbers and bank information.
The scientists took an off-the-shelf Emotiv brain-computer interface, a device that costs around $299, which allows users to interact with their computers by thought.
The scientists then sat their subjects in front of a computer screen and showed them images of banks, people, and PIN numbers. They then tracked the readings coming off of the brain, specifically the P300 signal.
The P300 signal is typically given off when a person recognizes something meaningful, such as someone or something they interact with on a regular basis.
Scientists that conducted the experiment found they could reduce the randomness of the images by 15 to 40 percent, giving them a better chance of guessing the correct answer.
Another interesting facet about the experiments is how the P300 signal could be read for lie detection.
In the paper that the scientists released, they state that “the P300 can be used as a discriminative feature in detecting whether or not the relevant information is stored in the subject’s memory.
“For this reason, a GKT based on the P300 has a promising use within interrogation protocols that enable detection of potential criminal details held by the suspect,” the researchers said.
However, scientists say this way of lie detection is “vulnerable to specific countermeasures,” but not as many compared to a traditional lie detector.
This could only be the beginning of a new form of fraud. Scientists say that a person with their guard lowered could be “easily engaged into ‘mind games’ that camouflage the interrogation of the user and make them more cooperative.”
Also, much like other household electronics, “the ever increasing quality of devices, success rates of attacks will likely improve.”
