Pope John Paul’s casket has been removed from the crypts below St. Peter’s Basilica and will be placed on the main alter for anyone to view on Sunday.
The body will then be moved to a new crypt in a nearby chapel.
What’s up with Catholics? What is your fascination with dead people? They’re dead, let the body go rot in a coffin and stop moving them around.
Oh, and they want to make him a Saint. HAHAHAHA. The dude made sure hundreds of child molesters didn’t go to jail. Idiots.
Wow. That’s really all you can say.
Tornadoes ripped across Alabama yesterday, including an EF4 that went directly through Tuscaloosa, home of the Crimson Tide. Entire neighborhoods were completely leveled, and hundreds of people have been injured or killed.
A friend of mine who lives in Tuscaloosa had her apartment destroyed, but she safely escaped with her dog and is doing OK.
The weather throughout the country has been crazy recently, with very powerful thunderstorms and tornadoes clobbering much of the United States.
Please keep the people of Alabama in your thoughts today. Check out the intense videos below.
A British cover band was arrested this past weekend for performing the 1970′s hit “Kung Fu Fighting” by Carl Douglas at a bar on the Isle of Wight. The group was arrested for reportedly subjecting an Asian man and his mother to “racial abuse” while singing the song.
The Asian man walked by the band during the song and began to yell expletives towards the group.
The members were arrested and then released pending further investigation. The local police explained to the members that they had no choice but to arrest them, due to the complaint by the offended party.
In other news, Styx has be banned from ever entering Great Britain again after a raucous performance of “Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto” in London.
According to a new study, space tourism could be a $100 Billion dollar industry if they could just figure out a way to get the darn price down.
As of now you need to shell out upwards of $20 million dollars to have the privilege of being thrust into space on a giant rocket. In the near future though the price might be closer to $500,000 dollars, which will open the opportunity to many more potential space tourists.
The study found that with this influx of potential customers, the industry could boom within a ten year period after start-up. To achieve this goal, the cost of getting people into orbit also needs to go down dramatically. There are a number of companies that are trying to accomplish this with new space ships that are currently either being designed or, in some cases, in production.
This should be very interesting to watch. We might have Paris Hilton in space in no time!
According to a new study from the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis, 1 in 4 adults lie about symptoms of ADHD in an attempt to be diagnosed with the disorder by their doctor.
An why would they be doing this you might ask? For the awesome drugs you get of course!!
People are looking for a way to get prescriptions for Adderall and other stimulant medications that, “help boost concentration and focus.”
Many people are feeling pressure to perform at a higher level in school and in work, and they believe these pills will give them an edge.
I think people just like to be high.
South Park is back with all new episodes, starting this Wednesday at 10pm on Comedy Central.
The season premiere is set to take on Steve Jobs and the fantastic horror movie Human Centipede, in an episode title appropriately HUMANCENTiPAD.
If you haven’t seen Human Centipede yet you should definitely check it out. I warn you though, it’s not for the faint of heart.
This should be awesome. Check out the clip above.
The daily blog post that everyone loves to hate just keeps on rolling.
THINGS RICH PEOPLE, WHO DON’T WORK, SHOULDN’T BE ALLOWED TO DO.
#16: Rich people, who don’t work, shouldn’t be allowed to say the words, “Mommy, please” after the age of 10.
It’s just sad to say that when you are 37 and still get an allowance. I’m sure you can think of a better way to ask for a new yacht.
Tampa local, Alexis Dunbar, had quite the surprise Saturday afternoon when she found a seven foot gator just relaxing in her bathroom. The gator was also startled and began hissing at Ms. Dunbar, who subsequently slammed the door shut.
The alligator was able to sneak through a doggie door and into the house, where it hid for hours. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission was called and removed the alligator from the home. No one was hurt.
I think Ms. Dunbar is going to board up that doggie door now.
Our friends over at Gawker have come across this picture of Rupert Grint smoking from a bong at a Harry Potter cast party.
It is probably a fake that someone is trying to sell, but I hope it’s real.
I always assumed that those kids had to be high while filming those movies.
