📌Katie Couric Secretly Takes Pay Cut To Spare Colleagues 📌 Pokemon Loses Popularity 📌 Pope Says This Is Not a Good Time To Bother God 📌 Bella Thorne Bisexual 📌 Homeless Woman Gets 100k She’d Been Fighting For 📌And More!

Pokemon-movie-640x345I knew this would be one of those Internet bandwagon deals that no one talks about in a week. Newsflash: I don’t care how innovative your digital invention is, you gotta beat folk’s social media addiction FIRST or find some kind of way to incorporate social media-because that’s where people sit, obsess (and chase) not funny looking anime animals that can offer them nothing about people of the world, news, family and friends and other stuff we’re incessantly interested in and on information overload about.

That’s that on that, now here’s this:

  1. 📌Pokémon Go loses its luster, sheds more than 10 million users
  1. 📌A homeless woman who insisted she was owed $100,000 has been proven right after 16 years Awesome. Good for her! (see our sis on a story like this where a homeless man claimed to have once been in a band with Carlos Santana—and a reporter when after it and found out t’is true. Carlos showed up).2-homeless-rex

Talk about taking one for the team, go Katie:

WhoopiI know Whoopi should be good and menopausal by now but good looking out for us. She must remember all too well-the ailments during our mensing time of the month. Go Whoopi:

This is 2016. And whether it’s dating or just dabbling with platonic friends of the same, opposite sex or platonic or popped exes…NO ONE that you once knew pre-social media is the same well beyond the ‘I’ve evolved and quite naturally I’ve changed’ kinda way. EVERYBODY’s got some kind of emotional, mental, or unbalanced spiritual sht going on. We are living in an unnatural, technological man made time right now that’s forcing us into a way of life that’s not even written in any history books and can be found no where (but tucked away in a set of Dr. Malachi York and the like’s conspiracy theory books).

That said, there are wayyyyyyy to many ‘A’s’ in the world of people we interact with today:Adam Hilarie -murder-robbery-online-dating-

  • Angst
  • Ambition
  • Attention seeking/starved
  • Anxiety

and

  • Aggression (lying beneath even the calmest of spirits)—all due to a life put in front of us that the world didn’t prepared us for. And from now, ‘til the end of time, we are in a fight of the spiritual and personal battle kind trying to figure out how to live with it, deal with it and for many: make a living of it (or at bare minimum): get some attention for it. All subcategories leading to all are fair game, no matter how illegal, immoral or unrighteous. As long as we can Tweet a righteous good tweet and snap a unsuspecting good selfie we’re gonna do it.

All that said and in the words of the late Whitney: “helllllllll to the nall” you wouldn’t catch me posted up on some dating site meeting strangers of 2016.

No ma’am. You still gotta sort through the nutty of the people you know (and once knew-pre social media). I don’t think so. I do not do that form of stranger-danger. Way too random. Too many degrees from separation. I’ve read countless stories about girls ending up dead from meeting guys on social media and dating sites but this time, it happened to a guy. Sad.

At any rate, there are still some good strangers in the world (I suppose) and then there’s this. So sad:

Police patrolling the promenade des anglais beach in Nice fine a woman for wearing a burkini.
23 August 2016.
Please byline: Vantagenews.com

Beach burka and burkini’s have been the talk of fashion here of late and this disrobing on the beach is just downright terrible and so humiliating. Things like this make me wonder if there was no possibility this would “go viral,” would these women have been left alone, in peace. Things like this worry me because you don’t know if half the time things like this are legit or if you are caught in the middle of someone [who in authority]’s need for attention. These women shouldn’t have had to endure this

Well one, because people speculated the woman was next to being wheeled into her next speech without her even having confirmed as yet, that she was ill or no. Regardless the 12 reasons, nothing was more terrible than all republican disinterested parties playing into the notion that because a woman was getting helped up the steps she had somehow aged 20 years. Dr. Drew lost my respect even when he jumped in talking about being “concerned” for Hillary’s health. That woman had been ill-convicted even before it could be found to be true. This was a horrible week for her 12 times over (for that reason alone) but hey, have at these 12 reasons in this article.
