School's out for vampires

Boston Latin High School is trying to quell rumors there are vampires among their students.

The article reads like a bad rumor. Very few facts, and lots of hearsay. Somebody was arrested, somebody was bitten, blah blah blah. The headmaster is an anti-zombite who won't acknowledge that vampires are students too. But people have more to learn.

Read the article.

R.I.P. Space Bat

Video dedication to Space Bat. They’re calling him “Space Bat.” Awwwww.

Twilight - Breaking Dawn breaking rules

This sort of thing drives me batty. No kidding. Pun, intentional or not is putting it mildly.

A school library in Utah had taken Breaking Dawn of the Twilight series off the shelf because of one complaint about sexual content. They denied that was the reason, citing that other Twilight books were available at their library (okay, so then what's wrong with this one?).
Apparently the sex involved is marital too (and only implied), so what’s the problem?

I would withhold judgment before writing anything about this, but the grounds have no solid argument. There are countless jr. high and high school books that include implied and described sexual situations. Heck, the bible has implied sex. Just more anti-vambites who have a problem with a human/vampire relationship.

Better stay away from those Sookie Stackhouse novels, n00bs.

Read this if you want your blood to boil.

R.I.P. Astro Bat

R.I.P. to the poor bat who died during the latest Space Shuttle launch :(

The poor thing was clinging to the fuel tank until blast-off.

Attack of the plush bears

A wild animal is a wild animal. You can’t tame a bear for long. Their grizzly instincts will emerge sooner or later. Even Teddy Bears can be killers. More than 800,000 killer Teddy Bears have escaped, and the “owners” are hoping they are returned before they hurt anyone.

Spider bite man follow-up

What a jerk! Maybe he was in the right condition in the first place. The spider made a mistake by giving him his legs back. The man who lost his ability to walk, and had it returned after a spider bite has been arrested for domestic violence! JERKWAD!!!

Spider man walks again

The Brown Recluse Spider is the most gorgeous creature that ever walked the planet.

If you ever needed evidence that spiders are good, look no further.

Though the article doesn’t say much about the science of it, it’s an interesting… well, at the very least, an interesting coincidence.
A Paraplegic man was bitten by a Brown Recluse, and now he walks again. Methinks perhaps they should look into the beneficial qualities of its venom!

Devil feet

An interesting story showed up in The Sun today. It's probably just some two-legged deer traipsing through Devon, England, but some folks think it’s the devil himself. No consideration that it might just be a lowly demon with cloven hooves. Ask DeMonica. She might know.

An interesting read, nonetheless. Whenever there’s a legend attached, it’s always fun.

It’s not easy being broken

Must be frog season. They apparently make for great puns. This article about a poor froggy who broke both of her legs clocks in at an alarming 25% pun rate. Luckily the nice folks at St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital have suited her up with casts to make her all better.

Bonus: The writer for the article is Jennifer Brain (could that be a typo?). With a name like that she’s bound to be either a zombie or an anti-zombite.

Notorious G.H.O.S.T.

I just have to laugh at this one. Lil’ Kim has come out to tell us that Notorious B.I.G. has a ghost who came to her in a dream to tell her he’s unhappy with his portrayal in the recent movie about him, Notorious.

Dear Lil’ Kim, ghosts aren’t in your dreams, they’re in your walls, eatin’ ur mices. LOLBIGS!

She says in this article that he is going to make his feelings on it known soon. I’m confused. Didn’t she say he already made his feelings known to her? Is she failing at getting the message out?

Ronnie & Donnie, conjoined twins

The Sun is there. We’ve all heard of them. We don’t always know their names, but if you’ve never seen video or pictures of Ronnie and Donnie, the oldest living conjoined twins, you must live under a rock. You can see pictures along with the Sun’s article here. I don’t think their image should be associated with “bogey news” or “freakiness.” But, what could they do to make money if not cater to the curiosities of others. Even their own mother couldn’t handle the idea of raising conjoined twins. They should be an inspiration to anyone who thinks they are behind the eight ball in life. Ronnie and Donnie share reproductive and digestive parts, but each have their own set of arms and legs.
They’ve recently come to poor health, and expect their lives may end soon. It seems like a scary thing to face. Your conjoined twin brother dies, and you’re still alive. Then all you can do is wait. I don’t envy their position, but I envy their close relationship. Though they actually settle their differences with physical fights sometimes, they have a bond that is so rare, only they can tell their story. That is why they are being filmed for a documentary.
I hope they continue to live happily with each other. Stay cool, Ronnie and Donnie.

Anti-vambites are among us

Someone named Ashley Womble wrote a piece for the MSN Lifestyle section; and seems to think that vampires are mooches, thieves, clingy, and drama queens. I’m sure she’s using the term vampire in a derogatory way, and in no way is she describing real vampires. What I’d like to know is how she makes that association. Maybe she’s just got a bunch of high maintenance friends who’ve stolen her Facebook friends and taken advantage of her generosity. So, why is she an anti-vambite?

Check out this insane article.
