TransBlind: Woman Used Chemicals to Blind Herself Because She ‘Identified’ as Blind! [WATCH]

Image
A woman with perfect sight claims she identified as a blind person, and had a sympathetic psychologist pour DRAIN CLEANER into her eyes so she could really be blind!She went blind on purpose, but did not feel it was a choice.Jewel Shuping has Body Integrity Identity Disorder (BIID), a condition in which able-bodied people believe they are meant to be disabled.Jewel says that she had a lifelong dream to be disabled, specifically blind.She said: “When I was young my mother would find me walking in the halls at night, when I was three or four years old.“By the time I was six I remember that thinking about being blind made me feel comfortable.”The North Carolina woman first attracted media attention in 2015 for telling her story about pouring drain cleaner in her eyes. I would say it was ALL about attention. Insanity!She fantasized about losing her sight. She spent hours staring directly at the sun. Of course her mother warned her that it would damage her eyes.At first, Shuping simply pre…

Liberal Snowflake Makes Snarky Socialist Remark, Professor Ruins Him With Harsh Lesson That Leaves Class Silent!

Image
It’s no doubt that many college students supported Bernie Sanders for President. It’s obvious many of these same liberal snowflakes also believe in socialism. These little weasels believe that capitalism is a very bad thing. When in fact, many don’t even know what capitalism is.Many of these liberal snowflakes haven’t even worked a real job, let alone a full-time job. They haven’t had to make tough decisions on their own.  Let’s face it, up until now they were living with their helicopter parents who footed the bill for everything they needed.So, what do they know about real capitalism. They believe everyone arround them should just be taken care of, especially by the government. They want their school paid for and all their college loans paid off.  They want to be told what to do and when to do it.  Work? What’s that?H/T US Herald:These libs don’t understand how poverty and wealth work much less how an economy functions as a whole and sometimes they need somebody to put them in their…

Florida School Ditches Common Core – Soars To Number One!

Image
You can’t really argue with the evidence on this one. We all know Common Core is a complete disaster. Frustrated parents and underachieving kids everywhere need relief from this monstrosity. Common Core was pushed on states by the Obama administration (you know, he’s from Chicago and they have stellar schools, not!) and the majority of states adopted it, and have been implementing it since 2009.  The Common Core State Standards are “a clear set of shared goals and expectations for the knowledge and skills students need in English language arts and mathematics at each grade level so they can be prepared to succeed in college, career, and life.”  Sounds nice, doesn’t it?  Who doesn’t want to succeed in life? Sign me up!  Except, instead, it seems to be producing students who can’t even succeed in putting together a cohesive sentence, much less in passing state tests.  Enter charter schools – publicly funded, but independent schools that have the freedom to choose their own curriculum an…

Kid draws a hilarious family portrait, featuring his mother on her period

Periods are normal, but kids pointing them out in their sketches is something else.Australian woman Penny Rohleder shared a photo of her son's drawing on the Facebook page of blogger Constance Hall on Jul. 25, which well, says it all.SEE ALSO: James Corden tests out gymnastics class for his son and is instantly showed up by children "I don't know whether to be proud or embarrassed that my 5 year old son knows this," Rohleder wrote. "Julian drew a family portrait. I said 'What's that red bit on me?' And he replied, real casual, 'That's your period.'" Well, at least he knows.To give further context, Rohleder revealed she had pulmonary embolism in October 2016, and was put on blood thinning treatment which makes her periods "very, very bad," she explained to the Daily Mail.

Warring factions are splitting Bitcoin in 2. Here's what you need to know.

Image
The wild world of Bitcoin is about to get a whole lot wilder. On August 1, 2017, the preeminent cryptocurrency is set to break in two. Two warring factions, fundamentally divided on Bitcoin's future, are coming to a head — and the impending split could either save Bitcoin or doom it.SEE ALSO: Why Bitcoin is surging again, in plain English The split, called a hard fork, will result in two separate and distinct cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin Cash and Bitcoin Core. Oh, and it also has the potential to create billions of dollars worth of new cryptocurrency out of thin air.  But that's not what this is really about. Bitcoin as it currently stands is in trouble, and with so much money on the line opposing parties have naturally come forward with plans to save it. And, surprise, they all don't agree on the solution.  Read more... More about Bitcoin, Cryptocurrency, Altcoin, Bitcoin Cash, and Tech

Sit down, folks. The Anthony Scaramucci drama just got even crazier — thanks to a self-proclaimed "email prankster."According to CNN, the prankster posed as former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus from a mail.com account, and reached out to Scaramucci, who resigned Monday from his job as White House communications director. SEE ALSO: Anthony Scaramucci resigned and everyone is hahahahahahahahaha This exchange came the day after Priebus stepped down, according to emails shared with CNN by the prankster: Not Reince Priebus: "I had promised myself I would leave my hands mud free, but after reading your tweet today which stated how; 'soon we will learn who in the media who has class, and who hasn't', has pushed me to this.

Best unlocked smartphones under $200 (2017)

Unlike some years ago, in 2017, cheap unlocked smartphones are not at all terrible. Thus, if you don't have more than $200 to spend, you can still find a brand new, reliable handset that runs a recent version of Android and doesn't skimp on features seen as high-end a while back (like LTE connectivity).

If you're looking for the best such handsets - under $200, but with decent features and performance - we have a list that should help you find what you need. 
For this article, we've considered only unlocked phones that are officially sold ...

DEARBORNISTAN – MUSLIM MAN BEATS HIS WIFE DOWN, DRAGS HER FROM THE CAR WITH KIDS WATCHING FROM THE BACKSEAT! [VIDEO]

After Obama’s flood of illegal immigrants into America, it’s no wonder that President Trump has had a hard time restoring order to a nation that was a land of lawlessness under Obama.If you want to see a clear picture of Obama’s flood of immigrants, head up to Dearborn, Michigan. Thanks to Obama, Dearborn now has a large Arab American population of Muslims.  In addition, Islam is the fastest growng religion in Dearborn. The city even has the largest mosque in America.Unfortunately with the flood of Muslim immigrants, many of them believe in Sharia law. They treat women with total disrespect, almost as if they were ‘trash’ or a piece of meat. Don’t believe me? Here’s a perfect example of a so-called man who assaulted his wife as his children watched.This was not only a sick act of assault, but child abuse as well. This piece of trash, Hassan Sayed, needs to be locked up, until he understands he is in America. If he can’t handle America and the Constitution, then he should go back to wh…

Let's all take a deep breath and stop freaking out about Facebook's bots 'inventing' a new language

Image
Tesla CEO Elon Musk made headlines last week when he tweeted about his frustrations that Mark Zuckerberg, ever the optimist, doesn't fully understand the potential danger posed by artificial intelligence. So when media outlets began breathlessly re-reporting a weeks-old story that Facebook's AI-trained chatbots "invented" their own language, it's not surprising the story caught more attention than it did the first time around.Understandable, perhaps, but it's exactly the wrong thing to be focusing on. The fact that Facebook's bots "invented" a new way to communicate wasn't even the most shocking part of the research to begin with. Read more...

It's been months since Samsung and Google promised both Galaxy S8 and S8+ flagships would receive Daydream VR support. A couple of US carriers (T-Mobile and Verizon) pushed updates that pledged to bring the new functionality to these smartphones, but global availability was out of the question.

Chicken Parmesan has to be one of the easiest and tastiest ways of preparing chicken, don’t you agree?In this version we first get started on a simple homemade tomato sauce with crushed tomatoes, garlic, basil, and oregano (though you could easily use already prepared sauce).While the sauce is simmering we take boneless chicken cutlets, breast or thigh meat, dredge them first in a mustardy coating, then in Parmesan tossed breadcrumbs (we like panko), and bake!Continue reading "Baked Chicken Parmesan" »

J.K. Rowling knows how to tweet up a storm, especially regarding Donald Trump. But she made a mistake Friday and now she’s apologized for it.  

She initially retweeted and criticized the president over a video of what appeared to be Trump ignoring a child in a wheelchair—only the complete video shows a different story.  "Trump imitated a disabled reporter. Now he pretends not to see a child in a wheelchair, as though frightened he might catch his condition," Rowling initially wrote in now-deleted tweets, referring to the footage that shows Trump ignoring the outstretched hand of a child in a wheelchair. A different clip that circulated online in response to Rowling's tweets shows Trump speaking with the child.  Read more...
