Brothers Steal Bridge, Sell for Scrap
Digital Journal
Two brothers have been arrested for dismantling, stealing, and selling the Covert's Crossing Bridge, a rarely used crossing in rural Pennsylvania. The brothers (24,25) used a blowtorch to disassemble the 15-ton, 50' by 20' structure, then sold the pieces for $5,000 to a scrap metal company, which later reported the suspicious transaction to police. 10/17/11 4:20pm ET

I think when you use that word in that way, you're supposed to spell it "Bruthas."

Justin Timberlake Takes Stake in MySpace
The Hollywood Reporter
Justin Timberlake is taking a minority stake in MySpace after its acquisition by online advertising network Specific Media and will help the company develop its new strategy and creative direction. NewsCorp sold the troubled social network to Specific Media for $35 million, after purchasing it for $580 million 6 years ago. 6/30/11 1:07pm ET
HoodratKid
If you would've told me 10 years ago that Justin Timberlake and Ashton Kutcher would become two of the biggest players on the Internet, I would've said "what's that?"

NBA Owners to Lock Out Players Tonight
The New York Times
After negotiators for the NBA's owners and players failed in a final attempt to broker a new labor deal today, Commissioner David Stern told union officials that he would urge owners to impose a lockout at midnight, shutting down the league for what could be a long time. 6/30/11 4:39pm ET
HoodratKid
At least we've still got baseball. No lockout in sight there, except for maybe the Dodgers. But that's just from their landlord.

Eric Cantor Betting Against U.S. Treasury Bonds
Salon
Eric Cantor, the #2 House Republican who walked out of debt ceiling negotiations last week, may have had good reason to do so. It turns out he has up to $15,000 invested in a fund that aggressively shorts U.S. Treasury bonds, meaning that it makes money when U.S. debt loses value. And if the U.S. were to default, the value of his investment would likely skyrocket. 6/28/11 3:36pm ET
HoodratKid
Reached for comment, the American voter said, "Who's Eric Cantor?" Then, "What's a Treasury bond?" Then, "How many zeros is that?"

While his 'bet' may just be a hedge on other investments, it certainly seems like a conflict of interest. And by conflict of interest, I mean really fucking stupid.

Ovulation Improves Women's Gaydar
Time Healthland
A new study published in the journal Psychological Science claims that ovulation helps a woman select potential partners by enhancing her ''gaydar.'' The researchers found that straight women in their peak period of fertility are far more accurate than non-ovulaters at identifying men who are gay vs. men who are straight just by seeing their faces. 6/28/11 2:32pm ET
HoodratKid
Ovulation improves women's gaydar -- almost as much as it improves men's chances of getting laid.

And gay men can spot ovulating women by how many times they ask if they've ever tried it with a woman.

Ohio Woman Shoots Police With Breast Milk
NY Daily News
Following an altercation with her husband, Ohio woman Stephanie Robinette attempted to fend off police trying to remove her from her car using her natural defenses. She first warned deputies that she was a breastfeeding mother, and then as they went to restrain her, she pulled out her right breast and began spraying them with breast milk. 6/28/11 12:57pm ET

And when she ran out, she began hurling her backup cans of Similac.

Los Angeles Dodgers File For Bankruptcy
The Wall Street Journal
After failing to secure league approval for a $3 billion television deal, the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team has filed for bankruptcy protection. The team, owned by former real estate developer Frank McCourt, says the filing will enable it to address its immediate financing needs and keep the team from being taken over by Major League Baseball. 6/27/11 9:50am ET

I tried my best to read the bankruptcy filing, but it was almost as boring as watching baseball.

In all fairness to the TSA, it is pretty suspicious to see an old woman at a Florida airport.

Two Hours of TV a Day Can Kill You
Business Insider
In a new study published by the Journal of the American Medical Association, Harvard researchers say watching just two hours of TV a day can kill you. Doing so increases your risk of developing obesity, Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and as a result, dying prematurely. 6/16/11 3:53pm ET
HoodratKid
Especially if those hours were spent watching the Republican date.

He plans to devote his time to repairing the damage he's caused and writing a book about what he's learned -- which of course will be a pop-up.
