YOLO: the acronym that I just recently figured out and was a competitor for Word of The Year (WOTY) in the Oxford dictionary.
Are you fucking kidding me?! For those of you who don’t know, it means You Only Live Once. Personally, I thought this was pretty damn easy to say and didn’t find the necessity in saying Yolo, but apparently the former Degrassi star turned rapper, Drake, did. And now, this acronym was actually considered to be in one of the most prominent dictionaries there is.
YOLO: you only live once; typically used as rationale or endorsement for impulsive or irresponsible behavior
Luckily, ‘gif’ beat YOLO. This poor word has hoped for this for nearly 25 years. Success!
[VIDEO] Straight Christian Man Who Believes Homosexuality is Sin Goes Undercover as Gay Man For a Year
Timothy Kurek, 26, is a brave and righteous man because of what he did, all on his own. This straight Christian man was told by a friend of his that she was a lesbian; Thanks to that moment, he started to realize that he may not be right about his homophobia or his religious stance on being gay.
He took himself on a year-long journey where he ‘came out’ to friends and family, despite the fact that he was not actually gay. Although he told his mom and heard her reaction, he wanted to know how she really felt, and got his answer after reading some of her journal. (which is sneaky, not wrong, according to the 10 commandments)
‘I’d rather have found out from a doctor that I had terminal cancer than have a gay son,’ she’d written.
Ironically, this is what he should have expected, seeing as he grew up in this household, where this was what being gay meant, utter disappointment and disbelief. For him, he was able to overcome his fear and hatred to learn a valuable lesson in life.
The Cross in the Closet, the book that Kurek wrote, is being released today, National Coming Out Day. A percent of all the sales will go to an organization that helps homeless LGBT youth, which shows the transformation that has come from his year undercover.
The young journalist even went so far as to ask a man to be his pretend boyfriend. Shawn was a ’big, black burly teddy bear’ and Kurek was able to confide in him and even care about this man, his new friend.
‘I needed protection to keep me balanced and teach me the nuances of gay culture and how they flirt, and to give me an excuse when guys hit on me,’ he said.
[He was] ’the first gay person that I let into my heart. He was totally there for me through emotional turmoil. I trusted him.
Before Kurek embarked on this journey he said that the idea of even being around gay people repulsed him. After the journey, he said there is no lingering homophobia once so ever.
Sadly, Kurek wasn’t quite ready for the loneliness he felt and the sheer abandonment of those he loved.
‘The thing that struck me most was the isolation,’ he said. ‘Before I came out as gay, I had a very busy social life. After I came out, I didn’t hear from 95 percent of my friends.’
She called his year undercover a life-changing transformation.
‘It’s what you hope for – the goal of the Christian walk of faith,’ she said. ‘It’s enough for me that he transformed, but if others learn from him, what an extra blessing that is.’
Snoop Dogg has released this video for ‘Rolling Words’ to help promote his own line of King Size Rolling Papers created by San Francisco agency Pereira & O’Dell. Right now, the book is only being offered for elite distribution (whatever the hell that means), but they are considering a limited edition version as well, to be sold online.
If you’re going to Coachella though, you may get the opportunity to sample the papers before the release of the book. So, be sure to look for the posters (photo example below) that will have some of the samples attached and are free for music concert guests to detach on their own. In the meantime, I’ll be anxiously waiting to get my hands on my very own copy of ‘Rolling Words’… if and when it becomes available.

When Sophia Stockton ordered her textbook, “Understanding Terrorism: Challenges, Perspectives, and Issues,” she never expected to find $400 worth of cocaine within, but that’s exactly what she discovered.
Stockton is in her junior year of college in Olathe, Kansas, and wasn’t sure of exactly what was in the bag, but had her assumptions. After taking it to her local police station, they were able to confirm that she had in fact received a large amount of cocaine along with her textbook.
“He put some gloves on and put it in a plastic bag,”Stockton told KSCW. ”He took it back to test it and like 10 minutes later he came back and said, ‘Did you happen to order some cocaine with your textbook?’”
For a college student, Miss Stockton is pretty ignorant. I mean, at the very least, sell that shit. You’re obviously spending money on textbooks which cost an arm and a leg, might as well reap the benefits of the $400 worth of cocaine you have in your possession.

Smith’s nephew left Diamond, the one-year-old female pit bull with his aunt whom he shared a home with while he went away. When he came back to the home, he found no trace of the dog and had assumed that she managed to free herself from the chain she was normally tied to on the porch. Fortunately, an environmental enforcement officer had come across the dog’s body thanks to the smell of kerosene that was coming from beneath a mound of dried grass.
Diamond was found with an orange extension cord loosely tied around her neck and had some recognizable burns on her body. No animal deserves this kind of treatment for chewing one’s bible. And no one that reads the bible should feel that murdering a helpless animal is a good thing to do. What a sick and twisted woman.
Authorities said bail was not immediately set for Smith, who remains jailed in Spartanburg County, South Carolina after her weekend arrest.
Smith is charged with ill treatment of animals in general, torture, according to an arrest warrant.
She faces 180 days to five years in prison if convicted.
I hope this bitch gets the five years she deserves. Not only did she kill the poor dog, but she did it in the most inhumane way I could imagine. Sadly, diamond had to suffer and struggle for air before having her body burned and tossed away.
