Picking Up Chicks

Do you remember a few years back when the name Jeremy Meeks became an internet sensation and household name?

If the name isn’t ringing a bell, keep it that way. Meeks became insanely famous when his MUG SHOT surfaced after he was arrested on charges of grand theft and firearms in an incident connected with the infamous gang, the Crips.

Sexy, right?

Well, to be fair, he IS a shockingly beautiful human being (if you’re willing to overlook the whole convicted felon thing).

Everywhere – women, gays, and model agencies alike practically threw themselves at Meeks, all wanting to cash in somehow on those smoldering eyes and greek biceps.

This case is just one of many that point to culture’s hyper-focus on beauty as a coveted trait, one that is significantly more valuable than intelligence, humor, and kindness.

In a very interesting (and very telling) social experiment, this man set-up a fake online profile as Joseph Stalin and was inundated with interested suitors.

Be proud, society.



Football Fiasco

I’m going to say this and I’m like 86.3% sure that, even if you are a Pats or Rams fan, you will likely agree:

This year’s Super Bowl left everyone so deflated, you would think we were one of Tom Brady’s footballs.

Dumb jokes aside, it really was one of the most boring games I’ve ever bared witness to. There was literally ONE touchdown in the ENTIRE game that occurred in the last quarter. That means the rest of us were subjected to nearly 3 hours of missed catches and flags. I’m not even a Rams or Pats fan so had no vested interested, but come on! I was more enthralled with my potato salad for most of the game.

Journalist, Kevin Clark, had this to say about the uninspiring display that went down last night.
