Hollywood Height Chart

Heights were taken from Some are accurate but most are blatant lies put forth by the celeb’s publicists for vanity’s sake.

Iowa's Crimial Masterminds

World Series Hooker

Susan Finkelstein, the fanatic Phillies fan accused of offering sex for World Series tickets, was just trying to score seats so she and her husband could go to a game, her lawyer told a Pennsylvania paper. He also said Finkelstein did nothing illegal. Investigators say Finkelstein posted an ad on the classifieds Web site Craigslist that stated she was a die-hard Phillies fan and "buxom blonde" who was willing to get "creative" when it came down to payment. You got to give it up to her, Yankee fans would have just bought the tickets. That's what the Yankee's do, if they see something they want they just buy it. Phillies fans go out there and get it.

Pilots of wayward jet lose licenses

The Federal Aviation Administration has revoked the licenses of the two Northwest Airlines pilots who overshot a Minnesota airport by 150 miles during a 78-minute period of radio silence last week.
Capt. Timothy B. Cheney, 53, and First Officer Richard I. Cole, 54, were piloting Northwest Flight 188 from San Diego, California, to the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport Wednesday when air traffic controllers lost radio contact with the Airbus A320 over the Denver, Colorado, area. What if it was Captain Sully flying that plane? I think that he'd get off the hook. His flight 1549 had 155 passengers that he saved. Northwest flight 188 had 144 passengers. So if he was flying and that plane went down, in the worst case scenario that all 144 passengers died he'd still be up 11.

Hollywood Herps

Did Derek Jeter infect Jessica Alba with herpes? We attempt to connect the dots of this sordid six degrees of sexual separation. We don't get much more low-brow than this but think of it as a PSA of sorts, in case you happen to find yourself in bed with Jessica Alba. If you do find yourself in bed with Alba, it's probably worth it. Scarlett Johansson, definitely.

To celebrate the return, Green Bay mayor Jim Schmitt is looking for ways to welcome Brett Favre back to town. He's asking people to submit "tasteful" suggestions.

Are You Guilty of These 8 Sex Mistakes?

No one enters into a relationship thinking, A few years from now, we will have sex only as frequently as a total lunar eclipse. And it will be nowhere near as spectacular. Yet for a variety of reasons, on any given night, watching Keith Olbermann may feel more compelling than tearing each other's clothes off. Which is why you just might want to consider kicking Keith — and your television — out of your bedroom (more on that later). Sure, everyone's sex life waxes and wanes, says Terry Real, a family therapist in Boston and the author of The New Rules of Marriage, but a steep and permanent decline is not inevitable. And arresting that slide can be as simple as undoing some all-too-common sex don'ts. Check out these please-don't-go-there sex killers and see which ones (be honest!) could be cooling your jets. I'd say the biggest sex mistake would be having sex with Paris Hilton, who knows what she has. You are probably better cutting it off if you do.

Dead man slumped on balcony mistaken for Halloween decoration

A 75-year-old dead man sat decomposing on his Marina del Rey balcony for days because neighbors thought the body was part of a Halloween display and didn’t call police.

He was slumped over a chair on the third-floor balcony of his apartment on Bora Bora Way, said cameraman Austin Raishbrook, who owns RMG News and was on scene Thursday when authorities found the body. He probably did such a good job decorating for Christmas and Easter that people just assumed that he was doing the same for Halloween.

Justice to Stop Pursuit of Medical Marijuana Use

People who use marijuana for medical purposes and those who distribute it to them should not face federal prosecution, provided they act according to state law, the Justice Department said Monday in a directive with far-reaching political and legal implications. In a memorandum to federal prosecutors in the 14 states that make some allowance for the use of marijuana for medical purposes, the department said that it was committed to the “efficient and rational use” of its resources and that prosecuting patients and distributors who are in “clear and unambiguous compliance” with state laws did not meet that standard.

Balloon Boy's Transfixing Effect On The Media

The saga of "Balloon Boy" (or Falcon Heene, as he's known to his new friends at the Larimer Co., Colo., sheriff's office) proved irresistible to the media last Thursday — especially the 24-hour cable news channels, which went into commercial-free crisis mode for more than an hour.
There was no way NPR would have covered it like that on the air, or could have: The medium was the message. The images of that silver mylar balloon shooting across the sky were transfixing. They came from a local news helicopter — ginned up, apparently, by the phone call of Falcon's own father, Richard Heene, to the newsroom of a local television station shortly after the balloon's release to the sky.

Elvis Presley's hair, at least a clump of hair that Presley may have lost to an Army barber when he went into the service back in 1958, is going on the auction block this Sunday at Leslie Hindman Auctioneers in Chicago. This is kind of strange, why would you want to have a dead guys hair? At least it's not his pubes they want to sell. That'd just be weird.

Best Halloween Costume Ideas for 2009

Here are some picks from pop culture this year that I think will translate well into halloween costumes for 2009. A lot of these costumes you can make yourself very easily and many you can buy off the web if you just do a bit of searching.

So don't let me stop you from barely dressing up.

10 cars we loved to hate

Uptight art snobs periodically work themselves into a lather when a respected art museum decides to host an exhibit celebrating automotive design as an art form.

With its "bombing" of the moon early Friday, NASA's LCROSS mission may beat a telltale signature of water out of a shadowy crater—and all you may need to see it is a good backyard telescope.

Veteran Massachusetts 911 operator Mike Bowes is rarely rattled when he takes calls about a wide array of life-threatening emergencies.
