Cardinals QB Kurt Warner retires from NFL

Kurt Warner has called an end to one of the great storybook careers in NFL history.The 38-year-old quarterback announced his retirement from the game on Friday after a dozen years in a league that at first rejected him, then revered him as he came from nowhere to lead the lowly St. Louis Rams to two Super Bowls, winning the first of them. I bet God told him to retire. Click on the pic for the full story.

Sunday night on CBS at 7pm.

I won't be watching the Grammy's this Sunday because I think that the Grammy's suck. How can it be possible that none of these artists have won the award. Led Zeppelin, Queen, Bob Marley, Janis Joplin, The Doors, Lynard Skynrd, The Who or Buddy Holly have never won a Grammy. Seems like whoever chooses the winners there doesn't know anything about music. Click on the pic to find out all the information on the Grammy's.

New advanced prostheses making amputees stronger than normal humans.

As if people weren't worrying enough about advanced prostheses making amputees stronger than normal humans, now we have to worry if they are going to make them sexier, too. The prosthetics industry is growing rapidly, and, according to Hugh Herr, the director of MIT Media Lab's Biomechatronics Group, advanced prostheses will soon become envied in the same way the newest electronic gadget or the hottest car is today.
It makes sense, when you think about it. Aesthetically pleasing inanimate objects do attract people and inspire envy, whether it's an iPhone, nice shoes, or a Ferrari.

Nancy Kerrigan's brother goes all Tonya Harding on their father

The brother of former Olympic skater Nancy Kerrigan has been charged with assault following her father's sudden death over the weekend in Stoneham. Mark Kerrigan, 45, pleaded not guilty during his arraignment in Woburn District Court Monday where he was charged with assault and battery on a person over 60. Police reports said officers received a 911 call to the Kerrigan home at 7 Cedar Ave. about 1:30 a.m. Sunday and found Kerrigan's father, Daniel, unconscious and not breathing on the kitchen floor. Mark Kerrigan, an unemployed plumber and Army veteran, was found in the basement, where he had been living in his parent's home since being released from a Billerica jail where he served time on 2007 assault and battery charges.

The billboards feature a picture of Charles Phillips, the president and director of software giant Oracle, and YaVaughnie Wilkins.

Burger King plans beer-selling Whopper Bar

Burger King (BKC) will unveil plans to sell beer and burgers at a Whopper Bar — a new BK concept to compete with casual dining restaurants — in Miami Beach's tourist-heavy South Beach. The South Beach Whopper Bar is scheduled to open in mid-February. A brewski at the new Whopper Bar — served in special aluminum bottles to keep them extra cold — fetches $4.25. Or, order beer as part of a Whopper combo and your bill will be $7.99 — roughly $2 more than the same combo meal with a fountain drink. I can't wait to get politely over served at a BK.

Jon Cryer's Ex-Wife Interviewed by FBI

The FBI is investigating an allegation of a murder for hire plot -- i.e., hitman -- against Cryer, costar of "Two and a Half Men." Someone has told the FBI the plot may involve Jon's bitter custody fight with Sarah. These guys from Two and a Half Men have really got some lady problems. First Charlie Sheen went to jail on Christmas for domestic abuse charges now Jon Cryers' ex wife is trying to have him killed. With Charlie Sheen in jail and Jon Cryer dead Two and a Half Men wouldn't really be that great of a show. Click on the pick for the full story.

Conan O'Brien -- Free at Last!

NBC has finally announced Conan O'Brien will be a free man on September 1.NBC released a statement moments ago, officially announcing Conan's last appearance on "The Tonight Show" will be tomorrow.NBC noted that the deal -- struck today -- will free Conan to "pursue other opportunities after September 1, 2010. Comedy Central and Fox have shown interest so it looks like Conan will find a home elsewhere. Which is a good thing because in my opinion he's the best. Click on the pic for the full story.

Swedish students stage beer pipeline protest at nearby brewery

Several dozen university students occupied a brewery near Gothenburg in western Sweden on Tuesday in their long-standing effort to convince the brewery to build a pipeline to carry beer to the students’ union. Most colleges in America discourage binge drinking, but then again most girls in America don't look like this. By the way, what's up with the brunette? She doesn't fit the stereotype.

The Manzier or Bro

Scientists in the UK suggest that chemicals in lipstick may lead to bigger breasts. This could be a really great thing or a terrible thing. What if your wife or girlfriend wears a lot of lipstick and you kiss her so much that it affects you and you get man boobs. Then you'd have to get a Manzier or Bro.

Apparently the tree gave this guy wood.

A man has been banned from a public park - after he allegedly tried to have sex with a tree. William Shaw, 21, has been ordered by a court not to enter Central Park in Airdrie after claims he attempted to bonk the plant. It is not the first bizarre sex charge to hit the headlines in Scotland.
In 2007 Steven Marshall, 19, admitted simulating sex with the pavement in Galashiels, Selkirkshire. In the same year Robert Stewart, 53, was caught by two cleaners having sex with a bicycle in his hostel room in Ayr.

I would have guessed San Francisco

According to The Advocate magazine, Atlanta rates as the nation's gayest city, followed by Burlington, Vt., Iowa City, Bloomington and Madison, Wis. Don't bother looking for San Francisco, New York or Los Angeles -- those supposed gay meccas don't even place in the rankings compiled by the nation's oldest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender publication. Is that why they call it hotlanta? That's a weird poll right? Click on the pic for the full story.

Too Funny


A mysterious visitor who left roses and cognac at the grave of Edgar Allan Poe each year on the writer's birthday failed to show early Tuesday, breaking with a ritual that began more than 60 years ago.
"I'm confused, befuddled," said Jeff Jerome, curator of the Poe House and Museum. "I don't know what's going on."
The tradition dates back to at least 1949, according to newspaper accounts from the era, Jerome said. Since then, an unidentified person has come every Jan. 19 to leave three roses and a half-bottle of cognac at Poe's grave in a church cemetery in downtown Baltimore.
The event has become a pilgrimage for die-hard Poe fans, some of whom travel hundreds of miles. About three dozen stood huddled in blankets during the overnight cold Tuesday, peering through the churchyard's iron gates hoping to catch a glimpse of the figure known only as the "Poe toaster."

Why beer is the latest hope in fight against cancer

It might be your preference to crack open a bottle of red wine at the end of a hard day but you may be better off pouring a pint.
Researchers at the German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg have discovered that beer contains a powerful molecule that helps protect against breast and prostate cancers.
Found in hops, the substance called xanthohumol blocks the excessive action of testosterone and oestrogen. It also helps to prevent the release of a protein called PSA which encourages the spread of prostate cancer. Click on the pic for the full story.

The Most Depressing Day of the Year

According to one equation devised by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a British researcher from Cardiff University, Jan. 18 is 2010’s most depressing day. His formula for this bleak prediction takes into account factors like post-holiday blahs and debt, failed New Year’s resolutions and, this year, the nasty chill that has reached much further south than usual. This particular peak in seasonal affective disorder (SAD) isn't the only time that we're prone to feeling low.

What the hell's going on at NBC?

I'm starting to think that this whole Conan-Jay thing is just a big publicity stunt to boost Conan's ratings. If it is it has to be working because it's all every one's talking about. If it's not it's still boosting his ratings and making NBC look terrible. Either way I hope that Conan finds a permanent late night home because in my opinion he's the best.

I Love Bacon!

I love bacon, it's good with/on everything eggs, pizza, sandwiches, salads, these two chicks, you name it bacon's good with it. I even like the actor Kevin Bacon and one of my good friends name is bacon. But now scientists have found that eating a plate of bacon and eggs could help pregnant women boost the intelligence of their unborn child. Is there anything bacon can't do?

Conan O’Brien Says He Won’t Host ‘Tonight Show’ After Leno

Conan O'Brien releases statement saying he will not take any lip from Leno's chin. I bet if you took this picture now it'd be a different finger Conan's using. NBC is full of a bunch of idiots, they only gave him seven months to get a following and now they want to dump him. Sounds like a Hollywood marriage. Click on the pic for the full story.

Haiti appeals for aid; officials fear 100,000 dead after earthquake

Rescue workers struggled to clear rubble and bodies Wednesday from the streets of Haiti's "flattened" capital, where government officials said the death toll from Tuesday's 7.0-magnitude earthquake may exceed 100,000.
Thousands of injured people waited for care outside badly damaged hospitals, while an unknown number remained trapped inside collapsed buildings. Basic services like water and electricity were out, and Haitian President Rene Preval said his government needs help clearing streets so rescuers can reach some of the hardest-hit areas.

World's First 'Robot Girlfriend' Can Do More Than Chat

A New Jersey company says it has developed "the world's first sex robot," a life-size rubber doll that's designed to engage the owner with conversation rather than lifelike movement. At a demonstration at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas on Saturday, the dark-haired, negligee-clad robot said "I love holding hands with you" when it sensed that its creator touched its hand.
Okay if you get one of these just make sure you leave room on the couch for it so you can watch Star Trek together.

Woodson named top defensive player

In his own view, Charles Woodson put together his best pro season in 2009. How appropriate, then, that he is The Associated Press 2009 NFL Defensive Player of the Year. The versatile Woodson tied for the league lead with nine interceptions, returning three for touchdowns, and was a key to the Packers' turnaround on defense. His role in Green Bay's performance -- second in the league in overall defense, first in interceptions (30), takeaways (40) and turnover margin (plus-24) -- earned Woodson 28 votes Tuesday from a nationwide panel of 50 sportswriters and broadcasters who cover the NFL. He is obviously the best defensive player in the league so I think that this was a given. Congrats to my favorite Packer! Click on the pic for the full story.

McGwire apologizes to La Russa, Selig.

Mark McGwire finally came clean, admitting he used steroids when he broke baseball's home run record in 1998, but he also said he didn't need performance-enhancing drugs to hit the long ball. McGwire said in a statement sent to The Associated Press on Monday that he used steroids on and off for nearly a decade. Later Monday, however, he disputed that the drugs gave him more power to hit homers.
"I was given a gift to hit home runs," he told Bob Costas on MLB Network.
He told Costas that studying pitchers and making his swing shorter led to his increase in home runs and that he could have hit them without PEDs.
"I truly believe so," McGwire said. "I believe I was given this gift. The only reason I took steroids was for health purposes." He took them for health purposes huh, were his balls too big to safely fit in his cup? Click on the pic for the full story.

Doctors investigating a girl who spontaneously bleeds for no reason at all, say it's one of the strangest things they've ever seen. Period.

A girl who bleeds from her eyes and other parts of her body without any apparent injury or cut has left doctors baffled.
Twinkle Dwivedi, a 14-year-old who lives in northern India, has been spontaneously bleeding from her eyes, nose, hairline, neck and soles of her feet for the last three years. The bleeding can happen up to 50 times a day and result in the loss of litres of blood. Click on the pic for the full story.

Hundreds Strip In NYC For No-Pants Subway Ride

Hundreds of New Yorkers are riding subway trains in their underwear. They stripped down to their undies on Sunday for the ninth annual No Pants Subway Ride. The idea is to act like nothing unusual is going on. Participants met up at six locations throughout the city. They formed groups and dispersed to subway stations to catch trains. Once inside the subway cars, they began calmly removing their pants and folding them up.

Baby Boomers Still Doing Drugs as Seniors

Almost 5 percent of aging Baby Boomers in the United States are abusing drugs, a new government report shows.
That's about 4.3 million adults over the age of 50 who are smoking marijuana, abusing prescription medication and engaging in other illicit drug activity -- a number that far exceeds that of their parents' generation. I would have never guessed. Click on the pic for the full story.

James Lewis, Suspect in the 1982 Tylenol Killings, Submitted DNA, Print Samples

James Lewis, the one and only suspect in the 1982 Tylenol killings, has been forced by a judge to surrender DNA samples to investigators, ABC News has learned. No one has ever been charged in the Tylenol poisonings that left seven people dead and an entire nation paralyzed by fear.
Lewis, 63, and his wife, Leann, appeared at a closed hearing at the Middlesex Superior Court Wednesday to determine whether they have to submit to the grand jury's subpoena, according to sources close to the case. I think that if he is guilty they should wait till he has a headache and give him some Tylenol, even if it's not poisoned he'll be crapping his pants.

Leno heading back to late night as Conan given ultimatum

After the Olympics, Jay Leno will get his 11:30 PM time period back. We're told network execs have told Conan they will let him decide if he wants the midnight to 1:00 AM time slot. If he does, Leno's show will only be a half hour. If Conan walks, Leno will get a full hour. Conan has not decided what he wants. We do know he's pissed, because he was given no advanced warning this was coming. Conan's people told NBC they are considering the offer. FOX is also interested in picking up Conan click on the pic for the full story. I think that they should stay with Conan mainly because I think that he's funnier.

Casey Johnson Dies

The L.A. County Coroner's office has no evidence Casey Johnson took her own life -- and Johnson's body showed no evidence of heart disease, liver, kidney, vascular or other obvious problems. There is no evidence of suicide or homicide. As for drugs, law enforcement sources tell TMZ there was "an insignificant" amount of prescription medication found in the home where she died. Our sources say the toxicology report should be the key to determining cause of death. Johnson was hospitalized twice after falling into a diabetic coma.

Full body scanners may break child pornography laws

The pictures created by the scanners are so graphic they are tantamount to "virtual strip searching", according to privacy campaigners who oppose the use of the security devices. Ministers may be forced to consider making under-18s exempt from the scans and civil liberties campaigners are demanding measures to ensure the images, which will include those of celebrities, are not leaked onto the Internet. I'd like to be a scanner at a airport in Cancun around spring break that would be a good job. Click on the pic for the full story.

Guests snowed in for New Year at UK's highest pub

Guests celebrating new year at the highest pub in England had a longer than expected stay, after heavy snow left them stranded for three days.
About 30 people arrived at the Tan Hill Inn in North Yorkshire on New Year's Eve to welcome in 2010. But the wintry weather conditions meant the residents were snowed in for a further two nights. I could think of worse places to be snowed in at. It looks like this place could be hard to get to when it's nice out let alone snowing. Click on the pic for the full story.

Identical twins born a decade apart on New Year's at Florida's Tampa General Hospital

Normally twins are born only minutes apart, but on New Year's Eve a Florida set was born with a decade between them. The Velasco twins were born at Tampa General Hospital during an emergency surgery, Tampa Bay Online reported. Marcello was delivered at 11:59:37 p.m., the last baby born at the hospital in 2009. Brother Stephano was delivered about a minute later at 12:00:02 a.m. on January 1, 2010. He was the first baby born at the hospital this decade. They will probably end up looking like these two, click on the pic for the full story.
