    Woman Sues Over Drive Trailer

    Lawsuit claims she was promised Fast & Furious but got art.
    October 8, 2011

    A Michigan woman so disliked the critically acclaimed Drive that she has filed suit against distributor FilmDistrict over feeling misled about what movie she claims the trailer had promised her.

    According to The Hollywood Reporter (via WDIV-TV), Sarah Deming's suit claims FilmDistrict "promoted the film Drive as very similar to the Fast and Furious, or similar, series of movies." Instead, she got an artsy drama with some action in it.

    Furthermore, the lawsuit claims "Drive bore very little similarity to a chase, or race action film… having very little driving in the motion picture. ... Drive was a motion picture that substantially contained extreme gratuitous defamatory dehumanizing racism directed against members of the Jewish faith, and thereby promoted criminal violence against members of the Jewish faith."

    But that's not all. She also wants a refund for her movie ticket and wants her case to lead to a class-action lawsuit against Hollywood to halt the making of "misleading movie trailers."

    Fascinating. I wonder what parasites are spread by polo ponies.

    How Your Cat Is Making You Crazy

    Jaroslav Flegr is no kook. And yet, for years, he suspected his mind had been taken over by parasites that had invaded his brain. So the prolific biologist took his science-fiction hunch into the lab. What he’s now discovering will startle you. Could tiny organisms carried by house cats be creeping into our brains, causing everything from car wrecks to schizophrenia? A biologist’s science-fiction hunch is gaining credence and shaping the emerging science of mind-controlling parasites.

    That's a whole lot of forehead for the most dazzling girl in the hemisphere.

    I actually feel sort of bad for her. There's very definitely something incorrect with her insides.

    The Daily Mail is one of the very worst of a bad lot of tabloids, and you can glean some insight into their practices from the following -

    One might construe this reaction as ultimately theraputic for this woman. Her startling lack of humility might be pathological, but what if it isn't? She probably needs to be taken down a peg or two in order to have some genuine relationships with others. Even before this her ridiculous rant I suspect most of her friendships were fake in the first place.

    Ever wonder if a right wing columnist could write something so insanely politically incorrect that even National Review would fire them on the spot for writing it? Behold:

    According The Associated Press, South Korean authorities have seized thousands of tiny capsules containing the powdered flesh of dead babies that many believe can cure a wide variety of diseases. The pills were apparently manufactured in China using a process that involves chopping the small corpses into pieces and drying them out on a stove.

    Lauren Odes, Former Native Intimates Employee, Claims She Was Fired Over 'Too Hot' Appearance
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/0...n_1535498.html
    Lauren Odes, a data entry professional, claims she was fired because she was too busty and dressed too provocatively for her Orthodox Jewish employers at wholesale lingerie company Native Intimates.

    According to Reuters, which attended Odes' press conference on Monday, her Native Intimates managers warned Odes that her appearance was too racy, suggesting that she tape her breasts down to make them look smaller and wear a "humiliating" red bathrobe over her clothing.

    But Odes contends that her clothing alone was not the issue. "When I first started working there, I asked what the dress code was, and I was just told to look around and see what everyone else was wearing," she said at the press conference. "So I did. The dress was very casual athletic wear to business attire."

    But even when wearing a simple tee-shirt and jeggings, her busty shape was allegedly unacceptable to her Native Intimates supervisors, who deemed her figure "distracting." Even after Odes agreed to purchase a long sweater to cover up, management fired the 29-year-old blonde. Odes' employers reportedly told her, "You are just too hot for this office."

    Now Odes, with the help of Gloria Allred, has filed a gender and religious discrimination complaint with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in New York.

    Said Allred at yesterday's press conference, "No woman should be told that her breasts are too large, her body too appealing and her appearance too attractive for the male leadership of that company,” according to the New York Post.

    You may recall that Allred also represented Debrahlee Lorenzana, who claimed that a New York City branch of Citibank fired her because her figure and wardrobe were "too distracting" to her coworkers.

    At this point in time, Native Intimates has made no public comment regarding Odes' claims.

    Nothing is quite as sensual as satin sheets. And now, in the Satin Sheets Thong by Native Intimates, you have a touch of luxury that you can take with you everywhere! This low-rise thong sits well below the hips, and hides under even your lowest rise fashions. Made from sumptuous stretch satin, this item is trimmed with luxurious black lace, which overlays twinkling rhinestone diamonds at the hips. Two accent buttons are a sweet decorative touch.

    This is a great garment to choose when you are looking for minimal coverage for the rear. The back of this thong is fabricated from super sheer mesh. The leg openings are covered in elastic for a custom fit that won’t dig in. This piece finishes with a cotton gusset for your comfort. If you love the feel and luxury of satin at home, you’ll love sensual style of the Satin Sheets Thong by Native Intimates.
