Pfeiffer called the legality of the IRS’ actions and the whereabouts of Obama on the night of the attack in Benghazi “irrelevant.” He also said that Susan Rice is owed an apology.

31 Delightful Things To Do By Yourself

Friends, family, significant others, co-workers, houseplants, pets — all great. But sometimes you are the only buddy you need.

1. 1. Go out to eat.

2. Go out to eat SOMEPLACE FANCY.
3. Go out to eat with a book, but then you spend more time reading the menu than the book and you can’t find a reasonable place to put it when your food arrives so you mostly just sit with your thoughts and your coq au vin.
4. See a movie in the middle of the day.
5. Check out a museum.
6. Especially if it is a crowded exhibit that you want to see anyway and don’t really feel like talking about right then.

2. 7. Shop.

8. Shop for groceries.
9. Shop at Target.
10. Shop for books.
11. Shop for nothing at all, really, because isn’t it nice to spend exactly how long you want in a store and not worry about abandoning someone (boyfriend or otherwise) on the dreaded Boyfriend Couch?
12. Try on outrageously expensive clothes you have no intention of buying.
13. Take a lot of pictures of yourself in the clothes.
14. Show them to no one.

3. 15. Exercise.

16. When you are bored of exercising, stop.
17. Go to the park.
18. Find a playground where it’s not creepy for you to swing on the swings, just for a sec.
19. Buy a ticket to a concert where you wouldn’t be able to hear anyone else talk to you anyway.
20. Get the last good seat at the bar.

4. 21. Save and save and save and then take a trip.

22. Go to a party where you know there will be people who love you.
23. Go to a party where you don’t know anyone.
24. Go home early.
25. Do the chore you’ve been putting off for days.
26. *Weeks.
27. *Years?

5. 28. Hrmm hrmm hrmm.

29. Make a delicious, bizarre meal.
30. If/when you fuck it up, order enough takeout for two days.
31. Take up the whole entire bed.

Irony: Former astronaut John Glenn endorses Obama

http://twitter.com/#!/owillis/status/257862564975869953

The Obama campaign is out with a new ad today starring legendary American astronaut John Glenn. The ad targets Ohio voters.

When viewed strictly in terms of party loyalty, the former Democratic senator’s endorsement isn’t terribly remarkable. But considering Obama’s gutting of our space program, the one that launched Glenn into orbit and into Americans’ hearts and minds, Glenn’s assertion that the president has stood up for the American way of life and earned his trust is more than a little puzzling.

How the…? These Mind Bending Perspective Pics Will Make You Question Reality. #23 Is Crazy.

The Eiffel Tower and Leaning Tower of Pisa are two of the most iconic places for tourists looking to take what are known as forced perspective pictures. You’ve definitely seen them before. They’re the pictures where it looks like someone is holding the Eiffel Tower in their hand, or propping up the Leaning Tower of Pisa. Forced perspective employs optical illusion to make an object appear farther away, closer, larger or smaller than it actually is. This how they used to make old monster movies, but the technique can also be used to create some great photos. Somehow though the best forced perspective shots always seem to be vacation photos. Here are some of the best ones we found:

1.) It’s pretty windy out there. – Salar de Uyuni, Bolivia

How This Guy Peels Coconuts Is Literally Insane — I Hope He Has A Good Dentist

If you’ve ever cracked open a coconut on your own, you know how terrible it can be…but this man may have learned the secret to making that process a little bit easier.

It doesn’t seem like a safe method, but it’s very efficient. Just make sure that you consult your dentist before trying this at home.

I want to know what this guy has going on with his teeth, because I’m pretty sure I’d need dentures after doing that.

This Family May Be A Little Different Than Yours, But The Love Is All The Same.

If the only thing that’s preventing you from having a family of your own is that you don’t want to raise a child on your own, consider exploring the world of co-parenting. It’s a great way for two people to bring a child into the world without having the romantic part of parenthood. Co-parents are close, perhaps even closer than most parents, but the relationships are not sexual in nature. They’re a team of two who are fulfilling their dreams of raising a child in a positive and supportive environment.

Fabian Blue and Dawn Pieke are co-parents who met on a Facebook group dedicated to helping people find an equal partner to raise a child. Both in their early forties, the pair knew they wanted to have a kid. However, they were hesitant to subject themselves to the stress, fees, and possible rejection that can come with adoption, single parenthood, or finding a surrogate. After discussing their thoughts on religion and how they feel a child should be raised, the two decided that they wanted to be co-parents. Shortly after, they welcomed Indigo Pieke-Blue to the world.

If you needed a FLOTUS rap to get you interested in college, the wait is over [video]

For those who were on the fence about going to college and were just one rap song from a U.S. First Lady away from being pushed in the direction of pursuing a higher education, Michelle Obama has provided some motivation, along with Jay Pharoah of SNL:

Students will no doubt welcome anything that takes her focus off their school lunches for a while.

Michelle Obama’s rap got #FLOTUSbars trending.

About 13 and a half months left, but who’s counting?

TSA frisks CNN editor because of ‘suspicious’ substance

http://twitter.com/#!/AnneClaireCNN/status/522122983922757633

Apart from NOT catching terrorists, you never know what sort of silly thing the TSA’s crack team of public sector union employees will do next. Frisking a toddler? Stealing your iPad? How about detecting the highly suspicious activity of hand washing?

Was taken to TSA's back room to get the full rub down after my hands were swiped & alerted machine for something suspicious.

— AnneClaire Stapleton (@AnneClaireCNN) October 14, 2014

The suspiciousness on my hands? According to the lovely TSA lady rubbing me down, must have been the soap on my recently washed hands (Cont)

— AnneClaire Stapleton (@AnneClaireCNN) October 14, 2014

Morale of the story? Don't wash your hands prior to TSA check. Disturbing…

— AnneClaire Stapleton (@AnneClaireCNN) October 14, 2014

There was a silver lining though …

@AnneClaireCNN Oh my! That's crazy! TSA needs to learn about #HandcraftedHappiness ;) Please send us a DM; we'd like to send you a treat 🙂
