Yep, turns out de-friending someone on Facebook can have a big impact, often in a very real-world/personal way.
While this piece of news probably won’t come as particularly surprising to some, a group of researchers at the University of Colorado have gone a little more in-depth with their analysis — and the specifics delve a little more into what those consequences may entail.

According to NPR, breathing quality over the past 3 weeks in China’s capital city of Beijing has been so bad that the city’s smog alert system has been raised to the highest level in the country’s history.
In addition, plane flights are officially being cancelled because visibility is too low. Health experts in the United States equate living in Beijing with living in a packed smoking lounge.
A new documentary with over one and a half million hits takes a look at why kissing may be on the decline (don’t tell this woman that).

A wounded United States Army Veteran with one arm, was honored during a professional basketball game between the Miami Heat and Boston Celtics. Fans came to see the defending champions battle the hometown celtics, but it ended up being an Army Veteran who stole the show.
Gregory Reynolds, a Former Army Staff Sergeant and Veteran Iraq War, did 26 one-armed pushups in total, or roughly 25 and a half more than anyone on our writing staff could ever pull off.
The effort brought the Boston Celtic crowd to their feet, cheering on Reynolds as he seemingly kept going and going, making no acknowledgement that he was technically disabled. Continue reading “Wounded U.S. Army Soldier Does 26 One Armed Pushups During NBA Game, Salutes Crowd” »
Hoodslam differs a bit from your usual wrestling tournament by inserting legendary CAPCOM mainstays like Blanka, Ryu, and others into the matches. Other game characters the organization uses include members of the Mortal Kombat cast like Scorpion and Johnny Cage, all brought to the mat to compete in a full-on wrestling match with one another.
Hoodslam is set to perform in Los Angeles this weekend, January 25th, and you can grab tickets for that and other upcoming shows on their site.

Every blue moon, we at The Jace Hall Show receive submissions from fans showing off their artwork or just telling us how much they love video games. We recently received a case of both, when long time JHS fan, Kyle Kulakowski, sent us a link to his Deviant Art page, filled with works dedicated to his love for video games.
Of course there was a twist, he uses black velvet as a medium, something that our n00bish eyes have rarely seen.
Below is a gallery to Kyle’s 1337 work, and information on what inspired him to create something so unique.

A Chinese man, fed up with his son’s gaming habit, decided last week to break the boy’s keyboard in an effort to curb the addiction.
It didn’t go too well: the younger man, in his 20′s and still living at his parents’ house, decided to go on a hunger strike until his parents fixed his computer.
A 50-year-old Everett, Washington woman was arrested last week under suspicion of having smothered her boyfriend to death.
Police say the woman’s breasts were the official ‘smothering weapon’, but are not 100% certain yet as to whether the death was intended. Continue reading “Seattle Woman Kills Boyfriend…With Boobs” »
It was just a little over two years ago that George Barris, the original creator of the Batmobile and owner of Barris Kustom Industries auto shop, showed off his iconic ride on Season Four of The Jace Hall Show. In the process, he had a message for the producer of the show Todd Roy and Host Jace Hall.
“You guys have just been PWNED…THIS is the original batmobile.” The car he was referring to as a “cheap imitator” was Jace’s T-Rex…a car that is certainly NOT for sale.
Now, the LA Times reports that the original Batmobile from the Batman TV series is leaving its North Hollywood home and headed for auction at Arizona’s Prestigious Barret Jackson Auction Company, where it will be sold to the highest bidder.
The 1955 Lincoln Futura concept car was originally created by a design team at Ford Motor Co.’s Lincoln styling department (see photos below).
The 19 foot long car, with its bubble-topped grand touring car prototype, was built by hand in 1954 by Ghia Body Works in Turin, Italy, and unveiled in its original pearlescent “frost-blue” white paint finish in 1955 at the Chicago Auto Show. The Futura originally played a prominent role in George Marshall’s 1959 film It Started With a Kiss.
From there, the $250,000 automobile was supposed to be destroyed, until it was sold to Barris…for $1.00. Now Barris is expected to make quite the return, with the car reported to fetch a couple million dollars at auction.
Not only will the winner receive one of the most iconic cars in TV history, the Batmobile itself features:
- bulletproof Plexiglas bubble windshields
- the Bat Ray (dual 450-watt laser beams that blasted obstacles to bits).
- Full Bat-O-Meter (fashioned from lawn sprinkler heads) to identify the location of bad guys, as well as oil squirters
“I saw the script and it said, ‘Bang,’ ‘Pow,’ ‘Boom,’…’That’s exactly what I wanted the car to do. I wanted it to be as big a character as the actors.”
The car reportedly has a reserve price, but is not being divulged. It’s expected to be sold for multiple-millions of dollars.
Until then, so long Batmobile…we’d say we hardly knew you, but that wouldn’t entirely be true.
Seems no one is really taking the White House’s new We The People petition movement– which encourages ordinary everyday citizens to create/submit the idea for any social reform of their choosing — very seriously.
The White House is adopting a change in policy, which may or may not be the result of people using the site for petitions to build a Death Star, or have each state receive their own Pokemon mascot (that has since been removed).

Meet Erick Naumann, a new high school principal in Everett, Massachusetts. According to him, students may all be ‘doomed.’
Naumann allegedly set the tone for his first year as principal with an introductory video, portraying him as a ‘terminator’-like watcher of students.

That’s how Bill Heyman of Eden Prairie, Minnesota describes his condition – both he and his wife, Jodi have cancer. Over the past six years, Bill and Jodi have had three kinds of cancer between the two of them.
Jodi was diagnosed with breast cancer six years ago and has now been diagnosed with Leukemia, the result of her chemotherapy treatment for her previous condition.

As Ryu Hayabusa, Rikimaru or those kids from 3 Ninjas would likely attest to, becoming a professional at ninjutsu is insanely hard work. It takes years of training, sacrifice, physical agility, and loads of cash. If it’s anything like Batman Begins, you also have to climb Tibetan mountains and give a rare blue flower to a disgruntled ninja clan who will then roofie you and beat you into oblivion.
Since it’d be way more entertaining to just hire someone to do all that stuff, why not just pay someone to be a ninja for you, then?
In Bushwick, one of Brooklyn’s trendiest, most hipster-fied neighborhoods, a waitress showed up for her last shift completely naked, save a threadbare fishnet top that might as well have never been there to begin with.

CES 2013 has revealed a weapon that looks like it’s something straight out of the Terminator, except this gun actually has a price tag (and probably a waiting period of at least three days).
The Austin based startup, TrackingPoint, believes they have developed a ”Precision Guided Firearms” that allows you to capture the perfect shot. Together the gun is made of a modified trigger mechanism with variable weighting, and a computerized digital tracking scope. It also has hand-loaded match grade rounds, which are purchased directly from the manufacturer. Continue reading “Meet The $17,000 Linux Powered Rifle, Complete With Auto-aim” »
Two Northern California teen girls have been arrested after one of the minors drugged her parents’ milkshakes.
According to Rocklin, CA police, the two were later found to have crushed up sleeping pills and slipped them into the milkshakes one had bought for her parents at a fast food restaurant, just so they could access the Internet past their 10 P.M. curfew.

It’s no secret that the internet world is overflowing with hot girls pretending to be geeks. Sure some of them happen to be attractive women who also love geeky things (in other words…they’re perfect) but for whatever reason, be it the upward trend of the hipster or the rise of technology towards taking over everything, girls have made it very convenient to sell themselves as geeks.
Now we won’t mention names, but we know they’re out there…they’re on our TV’s, they’re in our movies, they’re wearing T-shirts that tell us they like geeks but in reality their hitting up the guy with the popped collar, wearing the popular cologne.
How do you spot such women? How do you tell the difference between a geek girl and a girl pretending to be a geek. Most of the time you can tell a poser a mile away, but just in case, here are 20 can’t miss signs that will immediatly tell you if a geek girls isn’t truly a geek: Continue reading “20 Signs That a Geek Girl Isn’t Truly a Geek” »
Florida man Carlos Romero was caught having sex with miniature donkey Doodle earlier this fall (and rather infamously proclaimed “I like the way fur feels”). A neighbor allegedly caught him “with his pants down behind a donkey,” creating what would seem to be a pretty straightforward case of bestiality, a first degree misdemeanor under Florida state law.
However, Romero’s defense team isn’t going down without a fight (pun not intended…promised) this week, they motioned to have the charges dismissed on the basis that it violates Romero’s 14th Amendment rights (due process of Law).

Veteran actor Ed Asner has raised eyebrows during a recent appearance on Fox News, while commenting on a mild controversy over a political cartoon that made the rounds in California.
An animated cartoon produced by the California Teachers’ Union released earlier this year features the caricature of a wealthy, over-the-top rich man urinating on a group of poor people and protesting workers.
Actor Ed Asner (“Up”, “Batman: The Animated Series” and “Spider-Man”) narrates the clip, and it seems Fox News wasn’t too happy with his contribution to it as a voice-over artist. Continue reading “‘Up’/'Batman:TAS’ Actor Ed Asner Asks Fox News if He Can Pee on Them” »
A Long Island man shot his girlfriend over an argument concerning the show The Walking Dead, New York police have reported.
