And me asking my boyfriend to help me with some things because of my sprained ankle is me being selfish and lazy because i’m perfectly capable of doing it myself.
My boss was having me help her trim one of the plants, and she decided the top was too tall and the bottom looked too empty, so she just cut the whole top of the tree off and stuck it in the bottom of the planter and said “There! That’s much better! Hopefully that will grow…”
Omfg we’re at this warrior dash where Josh and his friend are running…. One of the obsticles is a big fire pit you have to jump over, and these dumb bitches are all “Why are there all these fire trucks? It’s a purpose fire! Someone should have told them they were making a purpose fire! Yeah it’s a purose fire, duh!”
Why yes, yes, that is a video game that people can play with pigs — who, it turns out, are purty durned smart.
Huntsman hits at Mitt Romney’s “flip-flops” in a new video. Pretty Brutal.
Man, that Donald Trump debate is looking less and less not awesome.
A plastic surgeon in California has lost his license to practice after it was discovered he had been using human fat sucked out of patients’ bodies to fuel his car.
Alan Bittner claimed on a web site that he created lipodiesel from his patients’ fat and used it to power both his Ford Explorer and his girlfriend’s Lincoln Navigator.
Dr Bittner said he has performed roughly 7,000 liposuction operations, and that a gallon of human fat will produce roughly the same quantity of biofuel.
“The vast majority of my patients request that I use their fat for fuel – and I have more fat than I can use,” said Bittner at lipodiesel.com. “Not only do they get to lose their love handles or chubby belly, but they get to take part in saving the Earth.”
Human fat contains triglycerides which are no different from those found in waste animal fats that are already being used for the same purpose.
However the discovery left medical regulators unimpressed. Using human medical waste to power vehicles (or indeed for any other commercial purpose) is largely illegal, and Dr Bittner’s clinic has been raided by California Health Department officials.
Apparently using fat to fuel cars might be environmentally friendly, but it’s illegal in California.

Unfriendly Skies of the Day: Three women claim they were removed from an AirTran flight to New York City by a flight attendant with attitude problem.
The women, strangers except for their neighboring seat assignments, were onboard and all set to depart Palm Beach International Airport yesterday afternoon, when one of them — 55-year-old lawyer Marilyn Miller — told a male flight attendant that he was being too rough with her overhead luggage.
“I said, ‘Hey, I have breakables in that,” Miller told News Channel 5. She says she was ignored, and the attendant began deliberately “shoving other bags into hers.”
Concurrently, a second woman, Carol Gray, was alerting the same attendant to her broken seat. She asked to be reseated, but the attendant allegedly refused.
According to the two women, after some back-and-forth the attendant snapped and told them they were going to be thrown off the plane. Two sheriff’s deputies arrived to escort them off the plane, at which point the third woman, Karyn Schorr, objected to their ejection.
She recalls saying “This is crazy, they didn’t do anything. Why are you doing this to them?,” to which the attendant reportedly responded “throw her off too.”
Once back at the airport, Miller, Gray, and Schorr say were they told someone from AirTran would contact them directly.
A statement released today by Southwest Airlines, AirTran’s parent company, apologizes for their inconvenience, and claims the women were compensated and booked on an alternate flight. “As we often do in these situation,” the statement concludes, “we will take this opportunity to review the reports and take away any key learnings that we might uncover.”
Most Expensive Car Crash of the Day: At least eight Ferraris, two Mercedes, and a Lamborghini were among 14 cars involved in what is believed to be the most expensive pile-up ever.
Damage from the crash, which took place along the Chugoku Expressway near Shimonoseki, Japan, is estimated at nearly $4 million.
The vehicles were part of a 20-car convoy driving to a supercar show in Hiroshima.
Witnesses say several of them were speeding when one of the Ferraris lost control, and slid across the wet road into a guardrail. The other cars attempted to brake, but to no avail.
10 people sustained minor injuries in the crash. An investigation is ongoing.
