    Georgia State Rep. Dar’Shun Kendrick (D) has introduced a House bill — HB 604 — that says this: “Any male 55 years of age or older shall immediately report to the county sheriff or local law enforcement agency when such male releases sperm from his testicles.” No, this is not an article from The Onion. The bizarre legislation came shortly before a state Senate panel approved another proposal (HB 481) to ban most abortions after six weeks of pregnancy, a bill known as the “heartbeat abortion ban.” “According to the House website, HB 604 was introduced by Reps.

    I was downloading a bunch of files on my computer recently to a flash drive when a weird thought hit me: Will it ever be possible to download a person's mind onto a memory chip? I mean your brain is like a memory storage so theoretically wouldn't it be possible to download that memory to another location such as a memory chip. Of course, if it could be a pretty boring existence since what the hell kind of fun could you have stuck inside of a high memory flash drive sitting in the corner of a shelf?

    Former President Ronald Reagan would be “horrified” and “heartbroken” by America’s current state of affairs under President Donald Trump, the late president’s daughter said in a recent interview. In an interview with Yahoo News that was published Tuesday, Patti Davis sharply criticized the Republican Party and Trump’s presidency, saying the President is endangering American democracy and “assaulting” the Constitution. “What would you think (Reagan) would think about this moment?” Zainab Salbi, the host of Yahoo News’ “Through Her Eyes,” asked Davis. “I think he would be horrified,” Davis replied. “I think he would be heartbroken because he loved this country...

    I've been listening to the latest Dem candidates and their stump spiel. More than one has been saying to the voting public that they must be elected to stop global warming or we will all be dead in 12 years. I had been wondering what light bulb has been predicting death in 12 years and have yet to hear any "mainstream" science on this subject. I decided to do a hypothetical that one of these bozo's was elected and given any kind of power at all. Think of it this way,....You really believe that the world is ending in 12...

    A mystery pooper has turned Broadway into the Great Wipe Way, laying waste to audition rooms by using them as a personal potty — and revolting thespians. The stealthy stink bomber struck during tryouts for the “Magic Mike” musical at Pearl Studios at 500 Eighth Ave. on Feb. 26, and again on March 6 at the Ripley-Grier space down the block. “There was a lot of disbelief,” said actress Eunice Bae of the first incident, when she saw a show rep slip on something on the floor. “She stopped and said, ‘Oh, I just stepped in s–t.’ We all laughed...

    The Appearance of the Fierce Lykoi Kitty! Scary as they might be, their appearance is really just down to the breed not having an undercoat, and beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. Lykois have the roan pattern, which is an intermix of normal color hair with white hair, and the mandatory balding of the hair coat. Kittens appear quite normal at birth and only begin to lose their coats a week or two after birth when they start to look fluffy. At three to four month, the kitten will have the Lykoi appearance. Although the coat appears...

    A woman was arrested in Slovenia for fraud after cutting her hand off with a circular saw in a bid to land an insurance payout, police say.

"With one of her accomplices, she intentionally amputated her hand at the wrist with a circular saw, hoping to stage it as an accident," police spokesman Valter Zrinski told during a news conference on Monday. The 21-year-old and her...

    Scantily clad girls baring their breasts for strings of beads, sunburnt boys chugging cans of beers through bongs and clouds of vape smoke hanging over the formerly pristine sand: this is March in South Padre Island. Spring Break sees the sleepy island community of just over 5,000 people transformed as an estimated 100,000 college kids descend for long days of boozing on the beach. For businesses and the city itself, the influx means a bumper payday with students spending $3.1 million on alcohol alone last year and providing South Padre with an overall windfall of $33.9 million. But can...
