  • Would you break up with your boyfriend because of this?

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    Jessica Powell took the plunge and broke up with her boyfriend after he pushed her off a 400ft cliff and it was all caught on video.

    Daredevil Creighton Baird had spent 45 minutes coaxing Powell to the edge of a narrow canyon in Utah so she could go through with a terrifying rope swing.

    Although she appeared to be securely attached to the rope, Powell failed to muster up the courage and Baird finally took it upon himself to shove her off!

    PS...They did break up within the week ;) 

    Do you think this video was real or staged??


    Looks pretty real to me


  • What a heartwarming story concerning a mentally challenged basketball player

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    With only minutes left, a Texas high school basketball coach put his team manager into the game: He is mentally-disabled.

    Having never played an actual game for his team he is still considered to be motivation and strength to his teammates.  

    And during the final minute of the final game a player from the oppisite team passed him the ball so he could score.



  • 13 Things From Your High School That You Wish You Still Have

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    1. That pair of Converse you wouldn't stop drawing on.
    2. Those ridiculous giant gold hoops.
    Bonus points if they were customized with your name.


    3. JELLIES.
    Blisters were no reason to throw these out. 
    4. That cute little backpack purse.
    5. That badass jean jacket with pins from all the shows you went to.
    And refused to take off, no matter how much you were eventually embarrassed by the band.

    6. That Marty McFly vest.
    7. Your Doc Martens.

    With the clunky heel.
    8. That pompom winter beanie.

    Epitome of 'ugly cool'.



    9. Those EPIC Air Jordans.
    You weren't even really that into sneakers, but you were into these.
    10. That one pair of weirdly tinted sunglasses you had.
    11. An actual backpack.


    12. Heaven for your feet.
    Yes they were ugly, but admit it: You still yearn for those little massage things.



    13. The only cool piece of high school sports team paraphernalia you had.



  • 8 things to know about Girl Scout Cookies

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    1. The first Girl Scout cookies were sold in Muskogee, Oklahoma, in 1917, when troops baked cookies and sold them in high schools as a service project.

    2. The ingredients for a Girl Scout cookie were very simple in 1922: Butter, sugar, eggs, milk, vanilla, flour, salt, and baking powder.

    3. In 1933, you could get a box of 44 cookies for just 23 cents.

    4. In the 1940s there were no Girl Scout cookies to be found. Due to shortages of sugar, butter, and flour, the Scouts sold calendars instead.

    5. Today, one-quarter of all Girl Scout cookie sales are Thin Mints. There's just something about the chocolate and mint combination that is unbeatable (that, and the fact that Thin Mints have the most cookies in a box).

    6. Two licensed bakeries are in charge of Girl Scout cookies: ABC Bakers and Little Brownie Bakers. That number has decreased dramatically over the years; in the 1940s there were 29 bakers, and in the 1960s, 14.

    7. Depending on your local Girl Scout council (and which baker they purchased from), your cookies are either creatively named or literal: Tagalongs are also known as Peanut Butter Patties; Do-si-dos are Peanut Butter Sandwiches; and Trefoils are Shortbreads. Ever so slightly bucking the trend are Samoas/Caramel deLites.

    8. You can download a Cookie Finder app to your iPhone or Android to pinpoint exactly where the Scouts are selling.

  • Young man told to take off this shirt

    Posted by Charli McKenzie


    An Illinois father wants a school district to reconsider its dress code after his son was asked to remove a U.S. Marines T-shirt or be suspended.

    His 14-year-old son was asked to remove the T-shirt because it showed interlocking rifles along with the word "Marines."

    The man said, “My son is very proud of the Marines, and, in fact, of all the services. So he wears it with pride… It’s more about the Marines instead of the rifles.”

    The boy was initially threatened with suspension before agreeing to turn it inside out.

    By the way, he had worn the T-shirt to school many times before without incident.

    School officials now say that the shirt is not in violation of the district’s dress policy.

  • 5 Home Repairs you can make in minutes

    Posted by Charli McKenzie

    Not every household snafu requires a professional. In fact, with a little elbow grease and some know-how, you can fix common breakdowns before they turn into expensive disasters.

    1. A Leaky Washing Machine

    If you ignore it: You could end up with a flood in the laundry room.

    Easy fix: Check the water hoses connected to the back of the machine - the leak is most likely coming from a small crack in the rubber. If so, you'll need to replace the faulty hose immediately, before a major break occurs. Turn off the water supply (so you won't come home to a flood) and buy a new hose at a hardware store. To install it, unscrew and remove the old hose, then screw the new one in and tighten it with a wrench.

    Pro tip: Buy steel braided hoses - they're more expensive but also more durable, says Raymond P. VinZant, master plumber for Roto-Rooter.

    2. Mold Spots on the Walls

    If you ignore them: You could develop allergies and other health problems.

    Easy fix: Remove the fungi with a mixture of 1 cup of bleach and 1 gallon of warm water. Scrub the area thoroughly, then rinse with clean water. When the spot is dry, repaint. (If the problem is widespread, consult an expert.)

    Pro tip: Consider using a mildew-resistant latex paint to help prevent further growth, says Erik Neighbour, owner of EC Handyman in Sacramento, California.

    3. A Running Toilet

    If you ignore it: You'll waste gallons of water (and have to pay the bill).

    Easy fix: Lift off the tank's lid and take a look. If water is overflowing into the vertical tube, you'll need to lower the water level in the tank. To do so, simply bend the arm on the float downward or, in newer models, squeeze the adjustment clips and slide the float down. If the water level isn't the problem, add a little food coloring to the tank and wait about 20 minutes. A change in color in the toilet bowl means the flapper - a rubber diaphragm at the bottom of the tank - is leaking and needs to be replaced. Turn off the water supply behind the toilet and pop out the flapper with your hands. Take it to a hardware store and ask for a replacement. The new one should pop back in the same way.

    4. Cracks in the Driveway

    If you ignore them: The cracks will get bigger and will be harder to repair. If they're near the house, moisture may seep into your foundation.

    Easy fix: Remove loose debris and spray the area with a hose. Apply a crack filler designed for asphalt and let it dry thoroughly.

    Pro tip: If cracks are deep, fill them with sand, then use the filler for the last 1/4 inch, says David Gross, a handyman in Valparaiso, Indiana.

    5. A Dent in the Wall

    If you ignore it: The plaster in and near the broken spot will crumble, eventually creating a larger hole that you'll have to call a carpenter or painter to repair.

    Easy fix: Wedge a wad of newspaper into the dent, leaving about a 1/4-inch gap between the paper and the rim of the hole. Use a putty knife to fill the gap with joint compound (available at any hardware store), then smooth it with the blade. Let the compound dry for 24 hours, then paint over the spot. (Depending on location and color, you may need to repaint the whole wall.)

    Pro tip: If the joint compound creates a slightly raised surface, rub it down with a fine-grain sandpaper, suggests Neighbour.

  • CHanning Tatum on Jimmy Kimmel..your gonna want to see this!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie


    Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx were dressed in their finest tuxedoes for "Jimmy Kimmel Live: After the Academy Awards." After a little bit of chatter about their upcoming film, "White House Down," things got very interesting.

    Foxx plays the President of the United States -- though he makes it clear he's not playing current president Barack Obama -- and Tatum plays the part of an aspiring Secret Service agent. When Kimmel asks if Tatum plays a "sexy Secret Service agent," Jamie points out that Tatum "can't get away from being sexy."

    The co-stars then prove this fact by delivering a special performance. Foxx takes a seat behind Kimmel's grand piano as Tatum grabs a bottle of whiskey. Jamie breaks into song about meeting a girl at a bar and wanting to "Channing all over her Tatum." Wait, what? When Channing quickly objects, saying the song "sounds dirty" and reminds Jamie "we're on TV right now," Jamie insists it's really "almost spiritual." So Jimmy allows him to continue.

    The next verse is clearly spiritual, right? Jamie sings, "If you're pickin' up a latte at the coffee shop, and the lady puts whip cream all over top, then you know she just Channing all over your Tatum. Next Jimmy tries a couple of verses, but gets kicked off the stage when he bring his mom into the lyrics.

    Tatum then helps Jamie with the song's finale by mounting the piano to perform a "Magic Mike"-style humping routine while the audience screams their heads off. After a hot and heavy commercial break, Tatum proceeds to grind on Jimmy himself, then passes out lap dances to members of the audience. Apparently he wanted to Channing all over their Tatums.



    Jessica Chastain, Bradley Cooper, Jude Law, Channing Tatum and Matt Damon star in the sequel to 2012's "Movie: The Movie" that pays homage to "The Avengers," zombies and vampires.

    Ready for the sequel to Jimmy Kimmel's Movie: The Movie?

    Shortly after the 85th Annual Academy Awards, Kimmel debuted the seven-minute trailer for the sequel, Movie: The Movie 2V, starring Jessica Chastain, Bradley Cooper, Gerard Butler, Jude Law, Channing Tatum, Samuel L. Jackson, Salma Hayek, Bryan Cranston, John Krasinski, Armie Hammer, Rachel Weisz, Kerry Washington, Topher Grace, Bruno Mars, Jason SchwartzmanAmanda Seyfried and even Matt Damon, who recently took over Jimmy Kimmel Live.

    PHOTOS: Oscar Red Carpet Arrivals

    Complete with a Walking Dead-esque zombie takeover, vampires -- and leprechauns? Movie: The Movie 2V also pays homage to The Avengers as Kimmel and Chastain assemble their version of the world-saving team.

    Some of the funniest moments: Cranston as an armless piano player, Law being taken by a pack of zombies, Krasinski as as superhero The Shrimp ("It's Shrimp time!"), Oprah Winfrey as the president of the U.S., CNN's Wolf Blitzer and #Sexpocalypse, Hayek playing opposite herself and Damon being the butt of the joke ("F---ing Kimmel!").

    Will this surpass Movie: The Movie, seen more than 20 million times on YouTube?



  • Is kissing Cheating? Some men think NO!

    Posted by Charli McKenzie


    Online dating sites and released a report called "State of Dating." It included a survey of over 2,500 singles, asking them what they believe constitutes cheating.

    All of the women polled—100 percent—said that kissing someone else is an act of infidelity.

    But lots of guys weren't on the same page. Only 86 percent of men agreed that kissing is cheating.

    Some experts say emotional infidelity is worse than having a sexual affair. But people in the survey were less worried about emotional cheating. 77 percent of women called it infidelity and only half of the men (55 percent) felt the same way.

    Eighty-two percent of women also said online flirting or texting counts as cheating. Only 56 percent of men agreed.
