This video is an excerpt from the project, BURN, a documentary featuring Detroit firefighters and the risks they take. After two dogs, one just a puppy, are removed from the home, a brave firefighter removes his own oxygen mask to revive the dogs. The owner, who seems frantic, begins thanking the man as soon as he leans down beside the pups.

This girl is pretty awesome. Hopefully this witty one wins the competition. I mean, yes, maybe a signing competition should be about vocals, but I’d vote for comedy any day.
There really isn’t much to say, but this is one of the most rad things I have ever seen.
May 21, 2012 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Florida Planned Parenthood affiliate has taken the opportunity of “National Masturbation Month” to highlight the national organization’s promotion of masturbation as part of a “a common and safe kind of sex play” with “many health benefits.”
On Friday, Planned Parenthood of Southwest and Central Florida tweeted, “Happy Masturbation Month! We’ve got lots of info on masturbation here,” providing a link to Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s page on masturbation.
There, Planned Parenthood states that “there are many harmful myths about masturbation that may cause us to feel uncomfortable about it. These myths can cause guilt, shame, and fear. Let’s get the facts straight. Masturbation is a natural and common activity for both women and men.”
Personally, I think this is a great idea. You don’t know how many times while growing up I wanted to know what masturbating was and how to do it. It’s such a touchy subject (get it?) and many people are ashamed or afraid to ask other people what masturbation involves. I seriously thought I was crazy because I enjoyed it so much and never heard anybody else mentioning how amazing masturbation felt, then I started not caring and talking about it. Ironically, once I started talking about it, I came to realize that everyone enjoys it. I mean, who wouldn’t enjoy giving themselves the most amazing sensation they’ve ever had and the ability to do it in the comfort of their own home?
“National Masturbation Month” was first announced in 1995 by the San Francisco-based sex-toy shop Good Vibrations. The month-long celebration includes the annual “Masturbate-a-Thon” to raise funds for sex education. Individuals participate in competitions, either by webcam or in person, based on “longest duration spent masturbating and most orgasms.”
Okay, well this isn’t something I think we should share with young people; They just perform sexual acts on themselves and share it with others, a.k.a. porn. Granted, they are raising money for sex education, and that, is a great contribution.
Jim Sedlak of Stop Planned Parenthood (STOPP), a project of the American Life League, said that endorsing the “gateway drug” of masturbation was of a piece with Planned Parenthood’s ideology on sex education.
Gateway drug?! Are you fucking kidding me?! Being sexually active is not a crime! Exploring one’s self and knowing how to control your body and your responses to stimulation should not be considered a bad thing. EVERYONE masturbates, and if they don’t, they’ve had their perceptions of masturbation warped by people, such as Jim Sedlak. It’s this very reason that children begin to feel ashamed, guilty, and dirty. We are born with curiosity, and saying that being curious about our bodies is sinful, is stunting the growth of that person.
“Planned Parenthood is an organization that makes its money from people involved in sex,” Sedlak told LifeSiteNews.com in an email. “Although Planned Parenthood pushes masturbation for all, it particularly targets young people with the message. It is a way to get these young kids involved in a sexual lifestyle.”
Sedlak said that youths buy the idea of masturbation as “risk-free” sex but end up “hooked on sexual stimulation as a way to escape their problems.” Especially alarming is how masturbation at an early age has been shown to interfere with a child’s ability to develop compassion and to learn—effects seen in children who regularly masturbate as young as six years old.
The parenting section of Planned Parenthood’s website tells parents to encourage elementary-age children to experiment with masturbation.
If you think this sounds young, you’re forgetting the small things you did as a child to make that good feeling come about. Don’t act like you’ve never humped a pillow, stroked your best friend (penis), or any other variation of masturbating, because I will not believe you in the slightest.
“Kids begin to want additional sexual experiences, and Planned Parenthood is there to sell them products and to make millions from them,” said Sedlak.
Yes, Planned Parenthood’s goal is to become filthy rich with all the whores they’ve encouraged to sleep around. It’s an ingenious plan, really. Sadly, they’ve been around since 1942 and are a non-profit organization so making millions seems rather unfathomable. But, what do I know? I’m just a female who experimented with masturbation at a young age, have a healthy sex life, no venereal diseases, never been pregnant and is politically involved in following what’s been going on with Planned Parenthood and those that oppose the organization.

Okay, I’m going to be honest and I admit that I record SNL because most of the time it sucks. In fact, I usually only watch it to see what Kristen Wiig does, but last week was amazing. Not only did they perform the Culps‘ shit, but they had this amazing skit…
This is the best thing I have seen on SNL since Kristen Wiig was introduced. She’s usually the most hilarious, but this shit was just as funny. Seriously, amazing.

Many of you are probably familiar with Jenny Slate, former SNL star, who is now widely known for her internet sensation ’Marcel The Shell With Shoes On‘ (which can be seen below), but you may not know her fiancée, Dean Fleischer-Camp. These two both worked on the Marcel videos, despite Jenny being the one most known for that accomplishment.
Dean Fleischer-Camp recorded various people getting ready to take photos and compiled them all to make this video. Slate is seen throughout the video and slowly catches on to the fact that he has recorded video as opposed to taking photos. I don’t know why, but people posing for photos that are never taken is amusing.
And now, if you have yet to see Marcel the Shell, please take some time to watch below

I love to drink and I usually have a blast while doing so. Unfortunately, as of late, I’m starting to think that it’s not such a great idea to drink as heavily as I have in the past, mainly because I don’t just stop when I’m simply “buzzed“. I no longer approach alcohol with awareness (whether I’ve eaten enough, how many shots are too many, how much money I’ve spent, etc.), and end up doing things that may be regrettable. I also think that it’s hard to go out in social environments without drinking, because to be honest, I’m much more funny while intoxicated. This is why I am giving myself a personal goal to not drink any alcoholic beverages for at least 30 days. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is not an attempt to stop drinking for good because, well, I love to drink socially; This will just allow me to be sober (as far as alcohol is concerned) for an extended amount of time and hopefully get back to the occasional drinks now and then.
This goal isn’t just to prove to myself that I can go so many days without drinking, but also a challenge to be more outgoing and extroverted without alcohol. As a young kid, I was always the most outgoing and did what I want, when I wanted, regardless of how people perceived my actions; I’d like to get that back. I don’t fully recognize when I lost this ability to not give a shit, but it’s gone and I dislike that. Hopefully this will encourage me to engage in situations without having something in my system that will encourage me to do so.
Also, the only reason I wrote this article is because writing it down means I really have to follow through. I mean, I don’t have to because no one would know, but it only makes me want to actually carry out my goal. Thank god I’ll still be able to smoke pot
