Gambler Sues Casino Alleging He Lost While Playing Drunk

Published by under Oddly Enough

A businessman who lost $500,000 on table games at a Las Vegas casino on Super Bowl weekend is arguing that he shouldn’t have to pay because he was blackout drunk. Southern California gambler Mark Johnston, 52, is suing the Downtown Grand for loaning him money and serving him drinks when he was visibly intoxicated. Nevada law bars casinos from allowing obviously drunk patrons to gamble and from serving them comped drinks. [Continue Reading]

This might be my favorite article all week. It sounds ridiculous, but I could easily see someone getting into this situation. You’re hammered, the casino is loaning you money with ease, it could happen. I love the fact that he’s suing – I bet you he wins and some kind of rule or regulation is made.

What State Lasts the Longest & Shortest in the Sack?

Published by under Oddly Enough

If you’ve got some time, head to New Mexico. Fresh data from Spreadsheets, a sex-tracking App launched last August, may show how your state measures up — endurance-wise — to its neighbors. “We’re creating a sort of thermometer for sex,” co-creator Tyler Elick, 29, told The Huffington Post. In addition to how long you’re lasting, Spreadsheets can keep track of thrusts per minute, audio levels, and frequency of sex.

There’s something weirdly ironic about this list. I’m just saying the states that suck and also suck in bet. Alaska last on the list at 1:21 seconds? Alaska is a beautiful state, but what the hell do people have to do up there besides bang. Plus it’s cold you’d think you’d want to hang out a bit eh?

Some Dude Created Oscar Nominees Art in Coffee

Published by under Oddly Enough

Even if you’ve seen all the Oscar-nominated films, you haven’t seen them like this. Mike Breach, 28, a New York barista, specializes in “baristart,” a self-coined term for art made in the foam of lattes. Using only a toothpick, Breach is able to mark detailed faces in the foam, only to have his coffee creations fade away quickly. Breach started his work to avoid boredom. “I had massive amounts of time at a lonely hotel barista station with not too many orders,” Breach told The Huffington Post in an email interview.

I’m not a coffee fan, but this is pretty cool. Not to rain on the parade, but it seems kind of dumb to spend all the time doing this when it’s going to last 32 seconds.

.@Dominos_UK HELLO I’VE JUST MADE LOVE TO ONE OF YOUR PIZZAS AND BURNT MY PENIS SEVERELY. PLEASE ADVISE ON YOUR TERMS FOR A REFUND. THANKS.

This guy is just trying to make waves – he has to learn the truly good material we post is often not intended like this. Dope.

Why Did This Guy Get A Spider Tattoo on His Face?

Published by under Oddly Enough

A

Eric Rico Ortiz definitely sticks out in a crowd. Having a huge spider tattoo on your right cheek will do that to a man. Ortiz, 24, isn’t a fan of the creatures. Just the sight of one spider creeps him out and makes him run away in fear. But the part-time landscaper from Deltona, Fla., doesn’t want his arachnophobia to be a monkey on his back, so last year he decided to confront his fear head on by having a spider tattooed onto his face, Miami New Times reported. As you might expect, Ortiz gets lots of reactions for the spider tat. [Continue Reading]

Well, that’s one method to try and overcome your fears. I mean people who are afraid of heights go bungee jumping or skydiving so this is kind of the same isn’t it? Oh people, you just have to love the way they think sometimes.

Someone Donated a Big Bag of Weed to the Salvation Army

Published by under Oddly Enough

An act of charity may end badly for one donor to a Pennsylvania Salvation Army outlet. Sugarcreek Borough police say they were called when workers found a large plastic bag of marijuana among some donated clothes. Police Chief Matt Carlson tells the (Oil City) Derrick (http://bit.ly/1gnLZm2 ) he suspects the owner of the drugs has noticed them missing by now, if only because the bag contained a “substantial quantity” of pot. Police were working with store employees to determine who donated the clothes and when. Police say the drugs were found earlier this week.

I don’t smoke weed. Not at all. However, with that said, how can you bust this guy in good conscious. I mean he’s donating clothes to the Salvation Army and he’s going to get popped for weed, which is legal in a few states. This is one of those crimes we brush under the table.

This put real ro-dent in his birthday plans. Family members of Joseph Vallenti, 96, say they found a dead rat in the man’s birthday cake. Neil Gold, who is dating Vallenti’s niece, told ABC-7 that the family bought Vallenti his favorite cake for the celebration — a German apple ring cake from King Kullen grocery store in Commack, New York. [Continue Reading]

Two things about this story that suck. A. Poor Neil Gold. The dude is 96-years old. This could be one of his last birthdays and he gets a dead rat in his cake. That’s just not right. Secondly, King Kullen grocery store. Enjoy this story going public!

Barbie-Obsessed Woman Wants to “Be Brainless”

Published by under Oddly Enough

A California woman who describes herself as Barbie-obsessed says she uses hypnotherapy sessions in the hopes that it will decrease her IQ. “I just want to be the ultimate Barbie. I actually want to be brainless,” Blondie Bennett, 38, told Barcroft TV. “I don’t like being human, if that makes sense… Natural is boring… I would love to be like, completely plastic.” Bennett has had five breast augmentations and other procedures in the hopes of attaining her goal. But now she says she’s undergoing hypnotherapy sessions two-to-three times a week in order to dumb down her thoughts. [Continue Reading]

Ever Wonder What Your Ear Wax Says About You?

Published by under Oddly Enough

Researchers have dug deep into the ears of volunteers to study a revolting but potentially promising new way to get clues about a person’s identity and habits. The team of organic chemists says earwax is a “neglected body secretion” that can reveal a person’s ethnicity and possibly much more information, Fox News reports. When they heated earwax samples from volunteers to release volatile organic compounds (VOCs), the researchers found that the earwax of Caucasians, which tends to be wet, could easily be told apart from the wax of those of East Asian descent, which is usually dry, with the former containing heavier amounts of 11 of the dozen VOCs they tested for. [Continue Reading]

Admit you thought this article was going to be so much better than it was. It’s times like these that make me feel very smart. Like I don’t need to melt ear wax to tell the difference between a white dude and an asian dude. Just saying….

Check Out What Happens When Real Women Are Photoshopped

Published by under Oddly Enough

“This is how I’ve always wanted to see myself. But now that I see it, I’m questioning why I ever wanted to look like that.” That’s what one woman said after viewing an image of herself that had been so heavily edited that she hardly recognized herself. The team at BuzzFeed invited four women to participate in a professional photoshoot, then asked a Photoshop expert to make them look like “cover models.” And though the end results were conventionally “beautiful,” the women who modeled were unnerved by the results. [Continue Reading]

It’s become so blatantly obvious that the celebrities we see in print are photoshopped. Kind of makes me wonder what I would look like photoshopped. Maybe I don’t want to know…
