Kirk Hammett of Metallica kicked a toddler for a field goal square in the face with his big boot at a recent concert in Australia. You are definitely a true badass if you can kick a tiny blonde 2 year old girl in the dome piece and keep on rocking out. He really nailed the poor lil’ thing too! Ouch!
Oh god… my worst nightmare. Is this how teenagers in Russia pass time? For those of us foreign to the Russian language, I would imagine the kid in the red shirt is saying “I just wanted to see Jackass 3D! I didn’t want to actually do anything stupid!” I’d rather drink 12 Four Loko’s than attempt this. Never mind, how did they even get up there? And that means they have to get back down. Anyone else have sweaty palms right now? My foot is sweating too.
Well at least there is one good thing to come …
“Four Loko” (a.k.a blackout in a can) is a caffeinated malt liquor beverage that has been gaining a lot of attention lately as it is becoming a problem among young drinkers. A pretty serious problem: Already banned in 2 states, with New York & Oregon next in line, the 12.0% ABV energy drink has recently given a healthy 19 year old Philadelphia college student a heart attack, sent 23 Ramapo College Students to the ER for alcohol poisoning, and has even been linked to 3 anti-gay hate crime beatings in Brooklyn, NY.
One can of the drink, concocted by three 2005 college graduates from Ohio, is said to contain as much alcohol as is in up to 6 light beers; a caffeine equivalent of two twelve ounce cups of coffee and the same amount of calories as a McDonald’s Happy Meal with a Coke (660 calories). There are currently about 20 attorney generals throughout the country encouraging the FDA to investigate the drinks toxicity with the hopes of an overall ban against the super-potent beverage. In the mean time, the drink is still available in most states. Now might be the time to start stocking up if you’re into triple-by-passes & being wasted and wired at the same time. I prefer to relax and unwind when I throw a few back, but that’s just me.
I would have expected a ‘Jersey Shore’ spin-off to eventually surface but from Canada, eh? The “highly anticipated” reality show “Lake Shore” will follow 8 multi-cultural Canadians living and partying in the Lake Shore Neighborhood of Toronto. (sigh). You know what? I’m trying really hard to write this without using words like DIE and KILL and this is seemingly becoming an impossible task. Take a look for yourself at an introduction to the “Lake Shore” cast and let them tell you what it’s all aboot.
So what does Lake Shore and Jersey Shore have in common? 1 fat girl (pictured above in blue), a houseful of drunks, an awful signature dance move.
