Monday 7-28-14 Recap!
COMICON happened in San Diego over the weekend, and we have a few things to go over. First of all, they debuted a 5 minute teaser of the season premiere of "Family Guy" which features a crossover with the Simpsons. I don't know about you, but I feel like the funny bar has been set WAY too high for this. I'm afraid it's gonna suck. Take a peek and let me know what you think:
A ZOMBIE WALK near Comic-Con in San Diego got a little TOO real on Saturday night, when participants dressed as zombies allegedly attacked a car, causing the driver to hit and injure a 64-year-old woman. A man and his children were stopped at an intersection, waiting for the zombies to walk by. But the scene was freaking out his kids, so he started inching forward, hoping to get through. Police say the zombies then surrounded his car and started beating on it . . . and one even jumped on the hood and broke the windshield. So the driver hit the gas, and that's when he hit the woman. She suffered non-life-threatening injuries, including a possible broken arm. The man kept driving, with some zombies chasing him, until he found a cop on the street, who diffused the situation. No arrests were made, but police are still investigating. Not that it makes any difference, but everyone in the car was deaf.
Throughout history, men have always held the belief that they're the breadwinners so they should be stronger, harder working, and smarter than their wives. Until now . . . when men have realized that being a breadwinner is cool, but sitting home playing video games in your underwear and eating Flamin' Hot Cheetos while your wife makes giant stacks of cash is BETTER. A new study found men who've gotten married in the 1990s and later are the first generation of men to be totally cool with their wives being SMARTER than them. The researchers found that in marriages between 1950 and 1989, if the wife was more educated than the men, there was a 34% increase in the chance of divorce. Since 1990, that's been completely flipped. Today, a couple is 40% more likely to get divorced if the MAN is more educated. The best bet for a marriage today is if both of you have the same level of education.
If you want to get huge fake clown boobs, more power to you. Especially if you can come up with a great excuse for why you didn't just want them, you needed them. 19-year-old Tasmin Wade of Suffolk, England got her breasts enlarged from a double-A cup to a G-CUP. And she says that her enormous fake breasts have made her into a better mother. Tasmin has a two-year-old son named Finley. And she says that ever since she got her breasts, it's made his life better. Quote, "I was unable to go swimming with Finley as I felt so self-conscious. Finley had never been swimming . . . I feel comfortable to take him abroad now too as I won't mind wearing skimpy clothes and bikinis." She spent $8,500 on her breasts and says it was the best investment in her child she could make. Quote, "Finley has always been my number one priority, but now I don't let anything hold me back from being the best mom I can be." Here's a photo gallery of Tamsin for your viewing pleasure.
