  • Pink Coconut Marshmallow Cakes

    05/25/2015 12:40:08 PM PDT · by Lazamataz · 36 replies
    Date: Now | Author: Me
    You know those pink coconut marshmallow cakes you find on convenience store shelves...? If you get too many of them together in close proximity, critical mass is reached and an explosion ensues. The explosion creates tens of new pink coconut marshmallow cakes per cake found on the shelf. This, in turn, causes another explosion, which occurs a few hours, when the cakes heat up again. This is known by Military EOD specialists and government teams dedicated to controlling these outbreaks, as a Pink Coconut Marshmallow Cake Event (PCMCE). In the effort to make these dangerous snacks more acceptable, Hostess renamed...

    The People's Cube ^ | 5-24-15 | Chedoh
    Hillary Clinton released an announcement over Memorial Day weekend on her Facebook page, saying that what we may think of as "free speech" can be hurtful towards other Americans, and we should put more effort into monitoring what we and others say to avoid painful dialogues, especially on the internet. "There is a problem in this country when people, mostly right-wing bigots, can easily inflict pain and suffering towards others through hurtful words and objections against alternative lifestyles and political stances. You often see it on Facebook and other forms of social media, where they are constantly spewing hate and...

    Reddit user Soggybrick said he finds it quite funny when he hears his girlfriend Samantha talking in her sleep. So funny, in fact, that he's decided to share some of her most notable lines on the Web. "She just talks sometimes while I'm on the computer late at night," he told ABC News. "So I take notes of them whenever they're absurd or hilarious." Soggybrick, who's actually a man named James living in New Zealand, wrote down and published some of his favorite lines on Reddit, which include the following: I want the little clay things that are spread all...

Thug is the new “N” word, “riot” is inherently racist and “terrorism” doesn’t actually mean… terrorism. Yes, this is actually what people on the left believe. They protest over it, in fact. But what about average, every day people on the street? Not even necessarily Liberals or Conservatives. Just normal, every day people. Do they buy into this crap?

    Now, I know there are still some folks back in Washington who refuse to admit that climate change is real. And on a day like today, it’s hard to get too worried about it. There are folks who will equivocate. They’ll say, “You know, I’m not a scientist.” Well, I’m not either, but I watch the weather channel. But the best scientists at Democrat Underground know that climate change is happening. Our janitors who work in the intelligence community know climate change is happening. Our leaders like Al Sharpton, Ed Schultz, know it’s happening. Our homeland security professionals at the...

    In Obama's world - our military's top priority is to fight the weather.  PRESIDENT OBAMA: Climate change is one of those most severe threats. This is not just a problem for countries on the coasts or for certain regions of the world. Climate change will impact every country on the planet. No nation is immune. So I am here today to say that climate change constitutes a serious threat to global security, an immediate risk to our national security. And make no mistake, it will impact how our military defends our country. So we need to act and we need...

    Even Rush Limbaugh brings this topic up time to time. Hillary gets paid a six-digit figure to speak, yet she is far from a great speaker/orator. If anything she is just monotone. Then you have to wonder why anyone would want to hear her speak,right? And has anyone ever shouted her down over her scandals? Something just wasn't right about her appearances, no normal/average American would ever want to attend a Hillary Speech. So can we assume that just like with the phony or laughable "Obama Props", we also have the "Paid Hillary Actors" to cheer and applaud at her...

We crossed busy intersections during rush hour to purchase bubble gum cigarettes with change from empty soda cans. Our playgrounds were construction sites, heaps of dirt, creeks filled with snakes and turtles we collected as pets. We climbed trees, muddied our Garanimals, scaled fences between neighbors' backyards. We spent Memorial Day to Labor Day barefoot, the soles of our feet blackened like coal, dirt clumping underneath our toenails....

    4 More Ways to Raise Egalitarian Children Don’t stop at ending bedtime stories. Deprive your children even further, for everyone’s benefit. Some may define egalitarianism as “belief in the equality of all people, especially in political, social, or economic life,” but a more precise definition for the contemporary parlance would be “belief that every person should have equal access to every opportunity in every circumstance imaginable.” To provide such a society for our children, to build them a shining egalitarian city on a level playing field, one major progress-impeding super villain needs defeating. Even more so than the misogynistic Christian...

The man is a psychopath and he’s running a criminal empire in your city. This is not without consequences. To survive, he will have to corrupt your police department, court system, and...

This was a to-do list that, in its blessed simplicity, portrayed a life gone to weed.
