The video comes from the Florida Department of Transportation, and shows actual footage of people getting hit, run over, and flipped by cars.
The campaign, dubbed See The Blindspots, wants to get your attention so that you start paying attention to the road. Continue reading “Politician Wants to Ban Graphic Video of Pedestrians Getting Killed By Cars” »
News is beginning to spread its way through the media that American’s rights are under attack, and that the nation famous for fast food and football is now a declarable ‘battlefield’.
If you paid attention to any of the Black Friday events, you might think that battlefield is a fairly accurate assessment. But is the media blowing this story out of proportion or just trying to keep the government honest?
The United States Senate defeated an amendment, 61-37, which ALLOWS suspected Al Qaeda terrorists captured in the U.S. to be held in military, not civilian, custody. Essentially, it makes the National Guard part of the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
Opponents believe it puts the United States Continue reading “Battlefield U.S.? Is the Government Declaring America a War-Zone?” »
Most of us know that, despite just about anyone being able to get into mobile app development these days, it can still be quite a pricy venture to have a professionally developed app (depending on its functionality). However, to spend $200,000 of taxpayer money on what might possibly be the most useless app ever created is an absolute abomination.
Thanks goes to developer Rich Jones over at Gun.IO who, after being appalled with the quality of the OSHA Heat Safety Tool app, set out to find out exactly how much it cost taxpayers. Continue reading “U.S. Government Spends $200,000 On (Useless) Smartphone App” »

Eric Smith had found his dream girl; she was everything that he wanted her to be. She wasn’t necessarily perfect in her ways, just to him, which prevented him from telling any difference. Shopping for an engagement ring was only a matter of time, the only question really was what style to get for her.
Turns out Eric’s girlfriend was quite vocal about white kind of ring she wanted, she spoke about a specific type of diamond that was a light shade of yellow. Smith never budged and got her the ring; the halo that would go around her finger and always remind them of what they had.
After making the investment, Smith’s girlfriend had some bad news. The kind of news you could conceivably expect to hear somewhere in between sharing a phone plan and getting a puppy, not while talks of wedding rings entered the picture.

Louisville Cardinals football coach Charlie Strong pinned his team’s recent loss not on talent or clock mismanagement, not on x’s and o’s or a failure to execute properly in the red zone…he said his team lost in part because they practiced terribly all week and were ultimately distracted by…the release of Modern Warfare 3.
“I said on Tuesday we have guys that miss class because they want to stay (up) all night and play that video game, whatever it was,” Strong said Monday at his weekly news conference. “Call of Duty…they sure got Continue reading “Football Coach Blames Loss On Team’s Addiction to <em>Modern Warfare 3</em>” »
It’s no secret that with trillions of dollars in debt, unemployment nearing double digits, and gasoline prices that rival most footlongs at Subway (premium sandwiches not included) things aren’t looking so good for America’s future right now…
As a sign of dissatisfaction, our generation a.k.a. the “Millenials” who were born after 1981, have begun to occupy some street corners here and there and write articles that may or may not end up in some google search results 2 years from now. But what are we really doing to combat the problems that many members of the older generations are leaving for OUR GENERATION TO SOLVE?
The answer may rest in how much success we’re having with one of our most beloved assets: Technology. Particularly, how effectively are we using the internet and social media to spur our generation’s growth? Continue reading “iCould: Is Technology Holding Our Generation Back or Are We Just FAILING to Use It Correctly?” »
But as hobbies turned inward to video and computer games, with new gamers popping up from age 1 to 100, girls are getting in on the act and causing a new question to materialize in the gaming world:
What does it mean to play like a girl…in video games?
For female gamer Jenny Haniver, it means enduring a constant stream of taunts, jeers and overall nasty criticism based on — you guessed it Continue reading “GIRL Gets “Out of The Kitchen” to Play Video Games, MEN Go Crazy…” »

On the surface the bill has good intentions, one of the first efforts by the State of Michigan to curb the frequency of bullying in schools. But according to lawmakers on the opposition, the bill does nothing for the issue, in some cases, it could make things even worse for children that suffer constant harrassment from their peers.
The bill being sent through Michigan’s state legislation is called “Matt’s Safe School Law,” named after Matt Epling, a Michigan student who committed suicide in 2002 after being a victim of chronic bullying.

After the horrific showing in our viral video department and the mess that was Kim Kardashian’s divorce taking over the internet, we went out looking for a sign that mankind hadn’t taken one giant step towards self-destruction.
We came up with this, an inspiring clip with a positive message that shows people aren’t miserable and do indeed still like each other, despite corruption, marital affairs, and other political controversies that would provide evidence to the contrary.

Jace Hall, host of the Jace Hall Show and an avid member of the Internet community, learned on Monday that his social security number and address had been used by a criminal to add themselves as an authorized signatory to one of Hall’s credit cards.
Once added, the criminal had the credit card company FEDEX overnight a new card with his name on it to a location in Las Vegas.
The criminal then purchased more than 10 thousand dollars worth of merchandise and services.
Hall quickly learned from the credit card company that the name the criminal added to his account was “Jeremy Williams” and that the newly issued ‘extra’ credit card was sent to 3117 North Walnut Rd. Apt. A, Las Vegas, Nevada, 89115.
After canceling that credit card account, Hall made a request to fans Continue reading “Jace Hall Show Fans Rally to Catch Alleged Criminal in Record Time” »

Worry no more (or maybe just a little less) there’s a new social media sherrif in town and it’s called Unthink. Surprisingly, it’s not a campaign to get more people to vote, it’s actually a site that’s meant to pawn some traffic away from Facebook, using “privacy issues” and “concerns over ownership” as scare tactics.

There is something gravely wrong with America and we all know it, but are we doing something about it?
The 99% are calling out the 1% while the 1% couldn’t seem to care less. Occupy Wall Street has been ridiculed by many in the elite, or those who tell themselves America DOESN’T have anything wrong with it, but how serious of a problem is it to think that America has no problems? What consequences could the 1% have in store if they continue to ignore the problem that is the growing anger of the 99%?

You could say it was an interesting week in news…One of the leading innovators of a generation passed, a survival story unlike anything we’d ever seen was spotlighted, and one of the most epic video game commercials debuted, sending chills down the spines of gamers everywhere (to Michael!)
But there’s also that ongoing story about people “Occupying Wall Street” which is gaining steam faster than a political sex scandal (no pun intended). It’s even cool enough for Kanye West to show up (Paris Hilton is still somewhere on Fifth Avenue we hear). Continue reading “6 PLACES We Should be OCCUPYING Other than WALL STREET” »
The date is October 1st, 2012. After a heated Republican race for the nomination, one that saw Michelle Bachman pull out with the flu, Sarah Palin pull a hamstring, and Mitt Romney run out of money, President Obama and Ron Paul are in their second debate to be President, while most Americans sit and wait for photos of Kim Kardashian’s second child (it’s rumored to be a boy).
Most importantly in all of this, Facebook continues to make huge advancements, causing NASA to be jealous and parents to become terrified. Now at over 1 billion people served, Facebook is expanding more rapidly than ever with new and improved features appearing daily.
Services that were once considered advanced Continue reading “What Your FACEBOOK Page Will Look Like Come October 2012” »
This was submitted to me by a fan of the site. Check it out and let me know what you think. Send me your responses or anything else you feel is epic and worthy of being shared on the site.
It’s been about 5-6 months since my awakening, and the last time I contacted you…
In that time I’ve devoted myself to studying history, economics, and philosophy. I wanted to share with you some of the ideas I’ve been working on with people.
What we (meaning mankind) are facing right now is a morality crisis that is manifesting itself in a total financial collapse. The boomer generation has dropped the ball in this country, and it’s unfortunately understandable given the circumstances under which they grew up.
The biggest accepted lie in society is Continue reading “The Future is in Our Hands, Do We Want To Do Anything About it?” »
It’s now the second most popular video on the internet, right behind a 15 year old girl singing about her favorite day of the week. Casey, the Australian boy suspended for body slamming a kid for taunting, has inspired editors to come up with their own renditions of the event, including this Street Fighter Zangief video.

It doesn’t really matter which category you fall into. The essence of what football teaches you applies to everyone: Fall down. Get back up. Do it all over again.
I had this football coach that used to yell at me for seemingly no good reason…well that’s not entirely true—I wasn’t very good at football. The mere fact that I was lousy, in his eyes, gave him the right to yell at me like I just put hot spaghetti on his car windshield in freezing cold weather. Continue reading “Fall Down. Get Back Up. Do it All Over Again.” »
The Evolution Championship Series is an annual console video game tournament. It is commonly referred to in fighting game communities as simply ‘Evo‘, and currently is the premier video game tournament for fighting games in the United States.
The tournament started as a 40-man Super Street Fighter II Turbo tournament in 1995 in New York City, eventually moving to its recurring venue in Las Vegas. Over time, the tournament grew, recording over one thousand participants in 2009.
In 2004, at Evo, a battle of epic proportions took place.
In the final round of the match, Daigo (who was playing as “Ken”) was down to his last pixel of vitality. Trying to take advantage of this, Justin attempted to ‘chip’ Daigo for the win with his character’s (Chun-Li) hou-yoku-sen move, since it still deals about 9% damage when blocked. Daigo stopped Justin dead in his tracks by parrying all fifteen hits of Chun-Li’s super, including a near impossible jumping parry on the last hit, then comboed into his own super (the shippuu-jin-rai-kyaku) to deal just enough damage to steal the game. The cameraman (Seth Killian) turned away to record the audience erupt into a tremendous uproar.
This is one of gaming’s finest moments where the players and the crowd are connected and engrossed.
Even for those people who do not play games, and have no idea what Street Fighter is, this moment can be appreciated and compared to any triumphant sports comeback.
Here is solid proof that games can and should be a viable spectator sport.
It is only a matter of time before I beat these two weak-ass players and rule the Street Fighter game universe when SUPER STREET FIGHTER IV comes out!!!
