Occupy DNC occupying the waaahmbulance: ‘HELP, nothing to eat’


Resist! But totally whine about food and stuff.

Occupy has occupied Marshall Park and is already out of food and water. @sistertoldjah @TwitchyTeam @michellemalkin https://t.co/EblqrkAZ

That picture was mostly likely taken with a smart phone. Yet, they must send out an all hands on deck emergency call for food at Marshall Park in Charlotte. Buy their own? Oh, the humanity! As Twitchy reported, this isn’t the first instance of absurd Occupying Whining. Yesterday, they sent out emergency requests for food after a bus broke down en route. Can they last an hour while the bus is repaired? The horror!

The whining continues today.


Very serious! Get them food! They can’t possibly walk across the street to get any!

Desperately! More like desperately pitiful. Is rescue from the harsh elements of a park in the middle of a city on the way? Not according to this Democrat.

democratic party and myself has helped occupy with media coverage,food and shelter now they wanna protest our event? #ows #Dnc2012

Dude. When you’ve lost your own supporters, maybe it’s time to pack it in. Slacktivism at its finest. We are totally protesting The Man! But, can The Man send us some eats?

Look, slackers. Everyone is sick of the pitiful whining and absurd sense of entitlement.

Food donations needed during the entire week of the DNC at Marshall Park #ows No money in politics message need to get delivered here also

— Occupy Tampa (@OccupyTampa) September 2, 2012

Oh, sweetie. Bless your heart.

Update: This is a win, right here.

Sounds like an emergency in Marshall park. Unfortunately for Occupy, most of us in NC believe that you should hunt your own food #OccupyCLT

He Put A Potato On A Wooden Skewer…When He Started Cutting It, I Was SO Confused

Baked potatoes are great. Throw some butter and salt on ’em right when they come out of the oven, and I’ve reached carby nirvana. But then one man posed the question, “How can you make baked potatoes better?” and his answer is beautifully crispy and all-around perfect.

Just grab a wooden skewer and get ready to drool:

These spirals are everything. Pass the ketchup, please!

Brit Hume: ‘Abusive’ of Obama to send Dan Pfeiffer on Sunday shows with ‘lame answers’


Brit Hume calls President Obama “abusive” for sending Dan Pfeiffer on several Sunday shows with such lame answers about the ongoing scandals.


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.

Alanna Okun / BuzzFeed

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.

Alanna Okun / BuzzFeed

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.

Alanna Okun / BuzzFeed

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.

Alanna Okun / BuzzFeed

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.

Irony: Former astronaut John Glenn endorses Obama


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.

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.
