TMZ- George Michael’s death has become suddenly mysterious, because we’ve learned the autopsy was inconclusive as to cause of death. Law enforcement says there will be further tests performed to pinpoint why Michael died on Christmas day, in his sleep. We were told earlier the medical examiner would perform toxicology tests. Sources denied there was any evidence Michael OD’d, but it is interesting the autopsy showed no apparent reason why the singer passed. Law enforcement calls the death “unexplained but not suspicious.” Michael struggled with drug use for years. He had also gained a tremendous amount of weight in the months leading up to his death.
Yo what the fuck TMZ, show a little respect for the guy. Guy’s a world renown singer/musical artist, he doesn’t deserve to be treated like that. Not like his funeral was going to be televised across the nation for the world to see his fat self in a casket. I mean honestly the last image I have of the guy is a super hot, awesome flow, British singer who kept in shape with the cross ear rings on. The guy went from this…..
Such disrespect. Imagine if you had to watch someones funeral and the priest is saying the eulogy. “Here lies so and so. He was beloved by his family and friends and was a monumental impact on the world. He got really fat towards the end.“
What an achievement. This whole season I’ve been contemplating what the legacy of Jagr should be. After his slow start here I thought he should call it after this season. It feels like the Panthers keep him around just for some media and fan service. Everyday becomes some new achievement just because of his tenure playing how ever many games he’s had and where that places him, but when he finally closes the book on his career he’s probably going to be remembered as a Penguin, not a Panther. But now things kinda changed. Obviously over the past week he’s proves he could still contribute with 4 points in the past 2 games alone (yes I get its a very very tiny sample size), but now he moves into second all time in NHL points. The only one above him being Gretzky’s point total which definitely will never be touched. So now it’s almost as if Jagr is at the very top in NHL lore. He’s a guy that played through the eras and achieved such an insurmountable point total wearing a Panther jersey. Maybe he will be remembered only as a Penguin for winning those cups, but as of now he’s still playing, and as much as we seem to be running though quick sand, he’s not stopping. That alone is keeping the dream alive that we’ll one day soon, win the cup, and if Jagr’s name is engraved in the cup one more time, then his time as a Panther definitely will be a large part of his legacy.
P.s- Gretzky’s point total is so ridiculous. I have no idea when Jagr will stop, but if they legalize the use of HGH, then Jagr will break it one day.
Huffington Post – A pregnant woman in Florida claims she’s making money doing something she has to do anyway ― go to the bathroom. The unidentified woman recently posted an ad on Craigslist saying she is three months pregnant and offering to sell positive pregnancy tests for $25 each ― two for $35 if the customer is traveling more than 60 miles. The ad has since been removed, but a screenshot appears below. The post makes it clear that the woman knows there are lots of potential uses for a positive pregnancy test. But it stresses that she doesn’t care to hear her customers’ particular plans: “Whether you are using it for your own amusement such as a prank, or to blackmail the ceo of where ever who you are having an affair with I DONT CARE AT ALL this is an absolutely no questions asked type of deal tell me what you need I provide it for monetary exchange. I will not overcharge for the urine test but I will not be low balled either do not contact me if you are going to be cheap and difficult.” Jacksonville station WJAX-TV went undercover to contact the woman. An intern met her and handed over a newly purchased pregnancy test. After she’d turned it positive, the reporter appeared to ask questions. The expectant mother agreed to be interviewed as long as she was not identified. “Me being in college, working on a bachelor’s and needing all this money to pay for a degree, this was a no-brainer,” the woman told the station. She added that she can earn about $200 a day urinating.
What a devious move this is huh? I never want to knock the spirit of the American hustle but I also think it’s sheisty as fuck to trick guys into thinking they’re going to become a father/about to have a million more responsibilities in life. Like yea girl if you want to use your body to make money in what ever way shape or form go for it. Sell blood, harvest an organ in Mexico, sell eggs if that’s a thing. But none of those things are potentially and probably going to be used to swindle a boyfriend into thinking he’s about to lose his entire life of freedom because of one mistake. And yea sure just as a prank that could be fine but theres a ton of chance its going to be used to trick dudes into thinking they’re going to become a father. This is not some Spencer gifts type joke pregnancy test that you could buy at the mall that looks comically fake and pops out confetti. Its like a real life pregnancy test with pregnancy piss all over the thing and a giant “+” on it. Besides it’s not like shes raking in hundreds of thousands. Its like 25 bucks. Morally that can’t be kosher right? To potentially black mail people at the low low cost of 25 bucks? Just not worth it.
Yo Cheryl, fuck this snake. It’s crawling in your fuck Christmas tree. If you have kids and shit sitting by the tree, it could murk them in a second. And don’t you dare tell me I’m over reacting. She’s under reacting. Fuck all of that “She didn’t panic, she called the snake catcher!” I would panic. You’re suppose to panic. It’s a snake. You know those sneaky devious animals that can strike at fast speeds and has a body that’s entirely muscle and loaded with venom. If I were with this person i would assume she’s praying for a death wish for how nonchalant she seems about a snake. Not to mention the biblical undertones of the whole scenario. Christmas, Christ mas, more Christ, the snake is the devil. All of that nonsense. I don’t want to be branded an animal killer. In almost all scenarios I want them to be free in the wild to do whatever it is they do. But you guys know I will never like snakes. It broke into your domicile, stand your ground and blow it away with a shotgun.
Miami Herald – Florida Panthers owner Vinnie Viola has been selected by President-elect Donald Trump to be the new Secretary of the Army subject to Senate confirmation. Viola, a 1977 graduate of West Point, is the founder of Virtu Financial and bought the Panthers in 2013. Trump and Viola apparently met last week at Trump Tower in New York. “I am proud to have such an incredibly accomplished and selfless individual as Vincent Viola as our Secretary of the Army,” Trump said in a statement. “Whether it is his distinguished military service or highly impressive track record in the world of business, Vinnie has proved throughout his life that he knows how to be a leader and deliver major results in the face of any challenge. “He is a man of outstanding work ethic, integrity, and strategic vision, with an exceptional ability to motivate others. The American people, whether civilian or military, should have great confidence that Vinnie Viola has what it takes to keep America safe and oversee issues of concern to our troops in the Army.” Viola, who founded the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point following the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, says the nomination is a “great honor.” confirmed, I will work tirelessly to provide our president with the land force he will need to accomplish any mission in support of his National Defense Strategy,” Viola said in the release. “A primary focus of my leadership will be ensuring that America’s soldiers have the ways and means to fight and win across the full spectrum of conflict. This great honor comes with great responsibility, and I will fight for the American people and their right to live free every day.” According to the Florida Panthers, ownership of the team would remain in the Viola family pending confirmation. Doug Cifu, a partner of Viola’s with the Panthers as well as Virtu Financial, would become chairman and governor of Sunrise Sports and Entertainment. “Our hockey team has always been proud to be part of Mr. Viola’s legacy,” Florida’s Dale Tallon said. “We admire his dedication to his country and are excited to watch him pursue this new endeavor.” Panthers CEO and West Point graduate Matthew Caldwell: “We are honored and humbled to see Mr. Viola nominated as the Secretary of the Army. We could not be more proud for Vinnie and his dedication to our country.” Read more here: http://www.miamiherald.com/sports/nhl/florida-panthers/article121729109.html#storylink=cpy
What a wacky month its been at FLApanthers HQ. Wacky year in general. Fire like 30 people, bring in a new staff, flip the team over to make them totally analytics based, fire the fan favorite coach, become old school hockey enemy number 1, and then have your owner become Secretary of the Army. It’s not crazy by any means given the military background Viola imposes on everything including this team, but just making this season more of a circus act than it already was is just crazy. Stability is something we’ve wanted for a long time and it felt like we had it by the end of last year and now it’s all up in the air again. Like we thought it was bad when Jeffrey Loria steps in mid season to fuck around with the Marlins. Well Vinnie Viola stepped in to mess around with the player personnel, and now President-elect Donald trump stuck his fingers into BB&T center and is messing around with Vinnie Viola. Some how this is gonna trickle down and effect with the players somehow. Wish we could hear Vinnie say he’s rejecting the offer because he’s 100% committed to this South Florida Hockey Franchise, but we just know he’s gonna jump to represent the Army any way possible. It’s like in the guy’s DNA. And who knows how things will change. Shouldn’t be to crazy I don’t think considering everyone in that organization front office is hand picked by Viola so the direction should still be the same but don’t be caught off guard if half the roster is sent to fight in the Syrian Civil War and combat ISIS.
Miami New Times- A South Beach lawyer was charged yesterday with operating a massive porn-blackmail scheme, in which he and his cohorts would make their own porn then upload it onto the internet in places they knew it would be illegally downloaded. The feds say that lawyer, John Steele, and his team would then wait for someone to download that porn, and then blackmail them into forking over wads of cash, lest Steele reveal the victim’s porn-watching history to the world. According to a federal indictment filed yesterday, Steele — a Minnesota native with a name that sounds suspiciously like a male porn star’s — made $6 million from the scheme, working in tandem with his University of Minnesota classmate, Paul Hansmeier. Steele was arrested in Fort Lauderdale earlier today, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune. In November 2011, he opened a branch of his law firm, Prenda Law, on 1111 Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. “Between 2011 and 2014, defendants Paul R. Hansmeier and John L. Steele orchestrated an elaborate scheme to fraudulently obtain millions of dollars in copyright lawsuit settlements by deceiving state and federal courts throughout the country,” the indictment says. “In order to carry out the scheme, the defendants used sham entities to obtain copyrights to pornographic movies — some of which they filmed themselves — and then uploaded those movies to file-sharing websites in order to lure people to download the movies.”
First things first, I gotta see this porno. Gotta know this Lawyer’s dick game. It could arguably determine the outcome of his trial. Lawyers are cocky aggressive types. If he slays he’ll probably pay a minor fine. If he has no power in his hips, he might as well be a laughing stock at the next lawyer convention while prepping to retake the bar since this scheme is something out of a weird straight to DVD movie. Is it ridiculous? Absolutely. Do I hate the idea though? Not as much as I should for a failed plan. Sure it lead to his arrest but I feel like law enforcement does this all the time. Like when they set up a sting operation to catch hookers and johns except with a bit of a twist in that it’s a lawyer leaking his own porno and extorting people for millions. Not even gonna hate on his pick up game though. Such a brilliant pick up line. “Hey honey, lets fuck so we can leak the video on line so when people illegally download it, we can blackmail them for millions.” Sex and money, no chick can turn that down. And we’re not talking like small amount either. 6 MILLION. That’s definitely more than amateur porn stars make. Plus it’s advice from a lawyer which almost 100% of the time means it’s legit. Such a porn star name too “John Steele.” Obviously the legal profession isn’t made for him, but Porn is definitely a possible career path for this guy.
Independent Journal Review– The signing of the Declaration of Independence, the pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock, the first moon landing — these are all great moments in America’s history, moments that have helped define us as a people and a nation. Well, history will smile upon this moment, too, for the long-thought impossible, yet forever dreamed of, is now set to happen. McDonald’s is going to start delivering. The announcement is one of several interesting directions the company has taken in recent months. Earlier this year, McDonald’s announced that it would respond to mandatory minimum wage hikes by replacing some workers with automation and adding self-serve kiosks for customers. Former McDonald’s CEO Ed Rensi told Fox News: “It’s cheaper to buy a $35,000 robotic arm than it is to hire an employee who’s inefficient making $15 an hour bagging french fries.” The delivery service will be available in Florida via Uber’s new UberEats service at first, and based on feedback from Florida customers, McDonald’s will make the decision whether or not to expand delivery service to other states. Delivery service is one more step in McDonald’s effort to offer customers the “experience of the future,” which includes table service, lattes, and the aformentioned self-serve kiosks, according to CNBC. McDonald’s also plans to start letting customers pay with a mobile app sometime next year.
Oh shit. Don’t look now but America’s favorite Fast Food Chain just re-invented the wheel and is test driving all over Florida. Never thought I’d see the day. Ever since day 1 of birth all I knew of McDonald’s was a walk in or drive through fast food chain. Perfect system. You drive around the block, order your shit in the comfort of your car and drive off listening to tunes 1 handed while the other hand devours carbs. Then they arguably disrupted the entire world economy when they introduced all day breakfast. I mean that was the pinnacle. What else did you need? Your option of any burger or breakfast menu item at all hours of the day. Incredible. Do you know how much time has elapsed in the world before an advancement as astronomical as all day breakfast was? Years. I’m talking like landing on the moon, modern cellphones, then McDonald’s all day breakfast. Well they just took it another step forward towards the future. Fucking McDonald’s delivery. And yea i know there’s shit like Seamless and Grubhub already doing that. But those are metropolitan cities that have options for everything to be delivered. It was one food option in the sea of many. We’re talking delivery in Florida. A place where we can now chose to not burn a cup of gas to sit in our car for 10 minutes, drive 3 miles and place an order. Instead we can just do it from the sofa and walk 5 feet to the door. MAGNUM.
