Won't somebody please think about the children!!!

Sucks that it happened, but I doubt the 5 year old is scarred for life. The family needs to chill out. My 2 cents.

When I was 5 I'd have no idea what I was looking at tbh, and it can easily be masked by parents especially if the kid still thinks a guy in a red suit is delivering presents.

Still though, gotta question the Q/A process of GameStop, or how the photos even got on their in the first place. My guess is it would have been tentacle related if it was put on there while in product testing in Japan.

QA process? It was "refurbished," so basically they bought a used system and threw it back on the shelf b/c it was the holidays and they knew it would re-sell instantaneously.

Calif. law says Kimye's baby was fathered by Kris Humphries

That sound you hear is hubris and schadenfreude sharing a laugh, while the California legal code smirks in the background. At the intersection of real famous people and manufactured wannabe ones you’ll find overpaid, underperforming NBA player Kris Humphries, and Kim Kardashian, the standard for post-modern pseudo-celebrity. As you recall, they were once married. Well, technically, they still are — their divorce is not yet final. Which means that under the Golden State’s Family Code, that bun in Kardashian’s oven is presumed by the great state of California to have been placed there by Humphries — since he is legally still her spouse — not actual baby daddy Kanye West.

Teen legally known only as 'Girl' battles to use her own name

A 15-year-old is suing the Icelandic state for the right to legally use the name given to her by her mother. The problem? Blaer, which means "light breeze" in Icelandic, is not on a list approved by the government.

Like a handful of other countries, including Germany and Denmark, Iceland has official rules about what a baby can be named. In a country comfortable with a firm state role, most people don't question the Personal Names Register, a list of 1,712 male names and 1,853 female names that fit Icelandic grammar and pronunciation rules and that officials maintain will protect children from embarrassment. Parents can take from the list or apply to a special committee that has the power to say yea or nay.

This image terrifies me in a way I can't even describe:

Spoiler:

Oregon firefighters have rescued a woman who was trapped between a very narrow space created by the outside walls of two buildings.

The unidentified woman fell between the parking garage of the Gretchen Kafoury Commons apartment building and the Joyce Furman building in Portland around 3:45 a.m. PST, firefighters told ABC News' Portland affiliate KATU.

Firefighters cut a door-size opening in one of the concrete walls and used lubricant to help her slide out from where she was stuck.

Relief cuts were made in the walls and airbags were wedged between the walls in an effort to spread the walls out as much as possible.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2265277/Mikel-Ruffinelli-420lb-mother-worlds-widest-hips-measuring-staggering-8ft-circumference.html?ito=feeds-newsxml

One lady most certainly of the opinion that men prefer curves is Mikel Ruffinelli, a 420-pound mother of four who measures a staggering eight-foot in circumference.

At just five-foot-four, 39-year-old Mikel, who lives in Los Angeles, is substantially wider than she is tall, but says she wouldn’t want it any other way.

‘I love my shape and I see no reason to diet because I don’t have health problems,’ explains Mikel, has a proportionally small 40-inch waist. ‘Men don’t fancy skinny girls, they like an hourglass figure.’


Mikel’s biggest fan is her husband, Reggie Brooks, a 40-year-old computer technician. They’ve been married 10 years and Mikel says that he finds her unusual shape sexy and tells her every day just how beautiful she is.


I wonder if he'll still have that opinion when her legs turn gangrenous :pop:
