Uh, you tell ‘em, Farrah Abraham! As Teen Mom fans continue to shake and/or scratch their heads with news of her porn debut, she offered up her own defense in an odd new video confession via her Keek.com page.
“So on the real, what would you do?” says Abraham, mother of a 4-year-old daughter. “You have been a single mother for four years, off and on dating loser-ass boys who always try to sell information, lie to you, manipulate, and you’ve just realized you’re an awesome person and you deserve someone, and now that you’ve been 21 and you’ve been crying every night because you’re single and you’re alone, and so you make your own video to celebrate your awesome body get your own sexy shots.”
Makes sense to me. Truth is: who cares what the whore says, right? Enjoy the uncensored screen shots from Farrah Abraham: Backdoor Teen Mom below:

It could be the greatest stimulus project of all time—a Death Star.
A petition to start work on the Star Wars vessel by 2016 was one of the stranger petitions submitted to the White House’s “We the People” website. But now that the Death Star petition has passed the 25,000-signature threshold—precisely a month after it was submitted on Nov. 14—the White House is going to have to respond, reports LiveScience.
Certainly there aren’t any bigger fish to fry than a Death Star.
(NEWSER) – It looks like America’s retailers can’t resist a Twinkie. About two dozen companies intend to bid to buy either all of Hostess or just some of its individual brands, sources tell Bloomberg. Among the biggest names in the mix: Walmart.
That deal would make some amount of sense, the New York Post points out, given that the retail behemoth purchased 40% of the sugary snack cakes Hostess produced. (It would also mean the treats would only be sold at Walmart and Sam’s Club.) Supermarket chain Kroger is also interested, as are Alpha Baking Co, Mexico’s Grupo Bimbo, and the private equity company that owns Pabst Brewing Co.
(NEWSER) – Adele is the top musical artist of the year for the second year running. She snagged the top artist spot and the top album spot (for 21) on Billboard’s year-end lists—and she also got both honors last year, the AP reports. More highlights from the charts:
Top song: Gotye, “Somebody That I Used to Know”
Other big songs: Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” came in second, followed by “We Are Young” by fun.
Top male artist: Drake, who also took top R&B/hip-hop honors
(NEWSER) – Details in last Friday’s horrific school shooting in Newtown, Connecticut, are beginning to clarify: A man opened fire inside an elementary school where his mother worked as a teacher, killing 26 people, 20 of them children, 6 of them adults. The gunman killed himself, and another person—his mother—was found dead at a second scene in Newtown, bringing the total to 28.
Adam Lanza shot his mother, Nancy Lanza, drove to the school in her car with at least three of her guns, and opened fire in two classrooms around 9:30 a.m.
The gunman forced his way into the kindergarten-through-fourth-grade school, authorities said. He took three guns — a Glock and a Sig Sauer, both semiautomatic pistols, and a .223-caliber Bushmaster rifle. The weapons were registered to his mother.
All the victims were killed up close by multiple rifle shots, a medical examiner said. Dr. H. Wayne Carver said at a news conference Saturday the deaths are classified as homicides. He said he believes “everybody was hit more than once.”
The gunman’s aunt Marsha Lanza, of Crystal Lake, Ill., said her nephew was raised by kind, nurturing parents who would not have hesitated to seek mental help for him if he needed it.
The mass shooting is one of the deadliest in U.S. history, and among school attacks is second in victims only to the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, which left 33 people dead, including the gunman. Reaction was swift and emotional in Newtown and beyond.
An emotional President Barack Hussein Obama talked about the killings Friday.
One of the two winners of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot has been identified: Missourians Cindy and Mark Hill, reports NBC News. “I think I’m having a heart attack,” Cindy, a laid-off office manager, told her 52-year-old husband after checking the numbers yesterday morning. She then drove to the home of her mother-in-law, who verified the numbers were, indeed, the lucky ones. Mark, who works at a meat processing plant, met her there. “You know it’s the Show Me State, so he said, ‘Show me,’” says Cindy. The winning ticket was among five the couple bought at a Dearborn Trex Mart convenience store.
The small town of Dearborn was identified yesterday as home to one of the winners, and with a population of just 496, there weren’t that many people it could be. The Hills are reportedly high-school sweethearts, with three grown children and an adopted 6-year-old. “Just an all-around good guy,’’ a former high school classmate told News Today of Mark. The AP reports that the Hills opted to take the lump sum: about $136.5 million after taxes. They’re now considering a second adoption with their winnings; they also plan to pay for college for a number of family members and take some vacations. Their 6-year-old has apparently requested a pony. For his part, Mark is eying a red Camaro.
(NEWSER) – Fast-food workers walked off the job today across New York City in what may be the biggest effort yet to unionize the industry’s workers, reports Reuters. The one-day protest was hitting the likes of McDonald’s, Burger King, Wendy’s, Papa Johns, Kentucky Fried Chicken, etc. The main gripe of the “Fast Forward Campaign” is low pay, and organizers want $15 an hour, which would roughly double the pay of most workers.
“They’re not paying us enough to survive,” a McDonald’s worker taking part in the protest tells Salon. “I think we need to be heard.” The group New York Communities for Change is leading the effort, which has the support of community and religious groups, notes the New York Times. The walkout comes after nonunion workers at Walmart staged protests of their own last week.
(NEWSER) – In a move that could change the face of strip clubs forever, Congress is considering doing away with the dollar bill. It wouldn’t ax the denomination entirely, but would instead replace the bills with the $1 coin, a move that would save taxpayers (who almost universally dislike dollar coins) $4.4 billion over the next three decades. That estimate comes from the Government Accountability Office, which is looking at ways to save money by tweaking our money.
The AP notes that the last time a big metallurgical change occurred was almost 50 years ago, when silver was removed from quarters and dimes. At a House subcommittee hearing yesterday, lawmakers discussed the proposed $1 change, along with the idea of moving to less expensive combinations of metals like steel, aluminum, and zinc. Though it would take several years for the benefits of $1 coins to outweigh the cost of the change (which would require lots of new equipment), the fact that coins circulate for 30 years while paper bills are replaced in four or five would lead to long-term savings.
Earlier this year, Mars One announced plans to send four people to the Red Planet by 2023, where they will be stars of a reality show, of course. If you pooh-poohed the gambit as totally unfeasible, you’d be wrong in at least one way—the group has no shortage of people willing to get in front of the camera. It reports that more than 1,000 people have volunteered to make the one-way trip via emails to the Mars One website. The group says it will begin the selection process next year, reports Yahoo. In addition to the four pioneers, it wants to send an additional four people to the planet every two years, until a colony of 20 is established.
(NEWSER) – Secession petitions are popular on the White House’s We the People website, but plenty of other entries prompt a double-take as well. The Week rounds up some favorites, reminding that if any of these get the necessary 25,000 signatures, the White House is obligated to respond:
Death star: This one calls for the construction of, yes, a death star by 2016. If you didn’t see any of the Star Wars films, the Huffington Post explains that this would be an “inter stellar weapon of unimaginable destruction.” (4,722 signatures as of today.)
Military pockets: Members of the military service “respectfully request the President of the United States to restore our sacred right to place our hands in our pockets—on or off duty.” (4,008)
Nationalize Twinkie industry: ”… to prevent our nation from losing her sweet creamy center.” (3,998)
Fark party: President Obama should attend a Fark.comparty, or, failing that, at least have a beer with Drew Curtis, founder of the weird-news aggregator. (1,165)
Shut down the petition site: It’s pretty much a joke, and the White House responses are “ultimately worthless” anyway. (933)
(AP) – The late Peanuts creator Charles Schulz was once so infatuated with a young woman 23 years his junior he sent her dozens of romantic letters and drawings of his beloved cartoon characters. Many of the themes of that correspondence made it into his daily comic strips at the time, and now those love notes from 1970-1971 are being offered for sale at Sotheby’s in New York by the family of Tracey Claudius, who the auction house says is ill at her home near Philadelphia. It’s estimated the notes will fetch $250,000 to $350,000 at the Dec. 14 auction.
Claudius met the cartoonist on March 16, 1970, while accompanying a friend on an interview assignment, ostensibly as a photographer but really for a chance to meet her idol. She was 25. The married Schulz was 48. There are 44 letters totaling 56 pages, including 22 original drawings of some of the characters, primarily Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and Lucy. Many are signed “Sparky,” a Schulz nickname. Sotheby’s says it the most significant collection of correspondence and drawings by Schulz to come to auction.

A squadron of the Royal Air Force assembled to take a mundane photograph, but after the picture was developed the squad quickly realized that this was no ordinary picture. Standing behind one of his mates was the two days deceased Freddy Jackson. Jackson was a mechanic for the Royal Air Force and served onboard the H.M.S. Daedalus. He had been working when we was killed in a freak-accident by an air plane propeller, but Jackson did not let his death get in the way of him showing up on time for the group photo two days later. Several of the other men in the photo confirmed that it was in fact Jackson’s face in the background of the picture.
The Fire Girl
On November 19, 1995 Wem Town Hall in England caught on fire. The fire raged on all through the night until the building was nothing but rubble. As firefighters battled the flames, a local citizen, Tony O’Rahilly, decided to snap some pictures of the event. In one of his photographs there appears to be the clear image of a little girl standing in front of the inferno. No one remembered a young girl being at the scene and there was definitely not a young girl in the burning building. Some believe this is the ghost of a young girl named Jane Churm who, in 1677, accidentally started a fire that destroyed many homes in the town. Jane also died in the fire. Perhaps the photo is just smoke creating the amazing illusion of a girl or perhaps it is a real ghost.
Ghost Don’t Call Shotgun
The year is 1959. Mabel Chinnery had just spent the day at the cemetery visiting her mother’s grave. To finish off a roll of film she snapped a picture of her husband who was seated in the front seat of the car awaiting her. She had the pictures develop. While looking at the photographs she makes a chilling discover. In one of the photos her deceased mother is sitting in the backseat of her car.
Her YouTube video started out innocently enough. The Canadian teen, her face obscured from the camera, held a stack of cards each filled with messages in black marker.
“I’ve decided to tell you about my never ending story,” the card in Amanda Todd’s hands read.
At this point the viewer may have no idea that they are about to be led on the most agonizing journey, one that pushed the premier of British Columbia to issue a stern warning against bullying, a journey that has birthed a Facebook page with thousands of people commenting many offering condolences.
In the soundless, black and white video, the teen showed one card after another. Each card painfully sinking the viewer deeper into the anguish too many teens have experienced.
“In 7th grade I would go with friends on webcam,” the card in the teen’s hand read.
The next few cards reveal that the teen began to get attention on the Internet from people that she did not know. People who told her she was beautiful, stunning, perfect.
“They wanted me to flash. So I did one year later,” the cards said.
The teen then got a message on Facebook from a stranger who said she needed to show more of herself or he would publish the topless pictures he had taken of her.
“He knew my address, school, relatives, friends, family, names …”
On Christmas break, the police came to her home to tell her that photos of her were sent to “everyone.”
She pushed the next card very close to the camera.
“I then got really sick anxiety major depression and panic disorder. I then moved and got into alcohol and drugs.”
She says she struggled with anxiety, rarely went out for a year. And then the same man appeared again with a Facebook page that displayed her topless as his profile picture.
“Cried every night, lost all my friends and respect people had for me … again …”
She was teased and felt as if she could never erase that photo. She started cutting, a form of self-injuring act that psychologists say is an impulse-control behavior that sometimes accompanies a variety of mental illnesses.
At school, she ate lunch alone until she moved to another new school.
“Everything was better even though I sat still alone,” the next card read. “After a month later I started talking to an old guy friend.”
She thought the guy liked her even though she knew he had a girlfriend. One day he asked her to come over because his girlfriend was on vacation.
“So I did … huge mistake … I thought he liked me,” she held the cards in one shaky hand now, using the other to brush under her eye as if wiping away a tear.
A week later the guy’s girlfriend showed up at her school with a posse of 15 others. A crowd gathered. The girlfriend berated her screaming that nobody liked her.
“A guy than (sic) yelled just punch her already …”
She was punched. Thrown on the ground.
“I felt like a joke in this world I thought nobody deserves this,” the next card reads. “Teachers ran over but I just went and layed in a ditch and my dad found me.”
When she got home she drank bleach.
“It killed me inside and I thought I actually was going to die.”
She was rushed to a hospital to flush the chemical out of her.
She put the next card almost flush with camera so that the viewer can no longer see her and only sees “After I got home all I saw on Facebook- She deserved it and did you wash the mud out of your hair? I hope she is dead.”
She moved in with her mother in another city, to another school. But her past followed her.
“6 months has gone by … people are pasting pics of bleach, clorex (sic) and ditches … Everyday I think why am I still here,”
Her struggles with anxiety and cutting had gotten worse and even despite counseling and antidepressants she still was rushed to hospital again after an overdose.
The last cards say simply: “I have nobody. I need someone. My name is Amanda Todd.”
The video has garnered the attention of many including the premier of British Colombia, Christy Clark.
“No one deserves to be bullied. No one earns it. No one asks for it. It is not a rite of passage. Bullying has to stop. Every child has to feel safe at school,” Clark said in a YouTube video posted Thursday.
On Wednesday, Amanda Todd’s body was found in her home, police in the Vancouver-area city of Coquitlam said. She took her own life.
What’s so hard about waiting for a bus, getting on the bus, paying the fare, sitting down and getting off when it comes to your stop. Dose not seem difficult to me. And I wasn’t surprised it was…uh, nevermind.
A Cleveland bus driver has been suspended following the surfacing of an online viral video depicting him viciously punching a female passenger, transit officials told FoxNews.com.
The 94-second video — posted on WorldstarHipHop.com and on YouTube.com — begins with an unidentified woman shouting obscenities at the bus driver. The woman then appears to strike the bus driver, who gets up from his seat and approaches her before landing a brutal uppercut that knocks the woman down.
The bus driver, who has been employed by the agency for 22 years, then physically removes the 25-year-old woman and her pink jacket from the bus. She then reboards the bus, where the two briefly continue scuffling as passengers try to end the melee.
“I don’t care,” the bus driver responds. “She want to be a man, I’m going to treat you like a man.”
Mary Shaffer, a spokeswoman for the Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority, told FoxNews.com in a statement that an investigation into the Sept. 18 incident has been launched. “Upon identifying the driver, he was immediately suspended and removed from duty,” the statement read. “His behavior is absolutely unacceptable.”
RTA officials apologized to customers for the incident.
(NEWSCIENTIST) – For the first time, people with broken spines have recovered feeling in previously paralysed areas after receiving injections of neural stem cells.
Three people with paralysis received injections of 20 million neural stem cells directly into the injured region of their spinal cord. The cells, acquired from donated fetal brain tissue, were injected between four and eight months after the injuries happened. The patients also received a temporary course of immunosuppressive drugs to limit rejection of the cells.
None of the three felt any sensation below their nipples before the treatment. Six months after therapy, two of them had sensations of touch and heat between their chest and belly button. The third patient has not seen any change.
“The fact we’ve seen responses to light touch, heat and electrical impulses so far down in two of the patients is very unexpected,” says Stephen Huhn of StemCells, the company in Newark, California, developing and testing the treatment. “They’re really close to normal in those areas now in their sensitivity,” he adds.
“We are very intrigued to see that patients have gained considerable sensory function,” says Armin Curt of Balgrist University Hospital in Zurich, Switzerland, where the patients were treated, and principal investigator in the trial.
The data are preliminary, but “these sensory changes suggest that the cells may be positively impacting recovery”, says Curt, who presented the results in London at the annual meeting of the International Spinal Cord Society.
