CNN's major gaffe with the supreme court health care ruling and premature reports about Nora Ephron's death are a reminder that especially when it comes to the internet, you can't always believe what you read. Editors who cover celebrity deaths say they're more skeptical of online reports than ever before.
This fan art makes me aim to misbehave. Sadly, it's only a wonderful mash-up of Da Vinci's "Perfect Man" that covers up all the important bits with suggestive gun placement.

"Donuts served in fancy restaurants; photo shoots in which female directors are asked to all stand in a cluster wearing mustaches; the idea that one’s writing isn’t fiction if it borrows from one’s life."

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, as cool as the Fake Chuck Norris that the internet invented is, the guy whose tears could cure cancer if only he’d cry, the real Chuck Norris is that much of a slimy dicklicker. The GPS on your phone will s…
ObamaCare means the end of the 50 states as we know it, apparently.

Mitt Romney said in 2007 that individual mandate, the centerpiece of ObamaCare upheld by the Supreme Court today as a tax, was the "ultimative conservatism." Romney said people going to the hospital and "getting free care" was a "form of socialism."
What it really means. Health care professionals, from an OB/GYN to a therapist to a pharmacist, share their feelings on the law and how they foresee it affecting their practices and patients.
Well, there goes that theory. The toxicology results are back, and the attacker had nothing in his system besides small amounts of marijuana.

A point worth reiterating in the debate about metered vs. unlimited data: "The major cable distributors can charge whatever they want, however they want, for whatever services they define.
