Love to the ladies...

A quick message to the ladies since I noticed most of my Tumblr followers are of the XX chromosomal nature,

I know I cover lots of models and women with ridiculous proportions on the show, but I hope that I never make any of my lady type viewers self conscious.  Secretly I don’t have a huge asian fetish.  Granted I find the whole rainbow of ladies beautiful, but what I really find sexy is confidence.  A girl with confidence talks, walks, and f*cks with confidence and thats sexy.  Being comfortable in your own skin.

I know I’ll never be ripped like Ryan Reynolds.  But there are some good things about me.  I make sure I recognize those things when I wake up.  

I:

  • am able to make people think and laugh.
  • I like my smile, but not when I show teeth.
  • Having 2 dimples never hurt.
  • am amazing with my mouth.
  • like that I am 6 ft tall.

And I want you to make yourself a list of these things when you wake up.  Mentally or on a piece of paper to remind yourself.

Now granted….I will always have a weird sexual obsession with Salma Hayek.

And my girlfriend will always not so secretly want Jason Statham.

But you gotta love yourself.  Don’t look in the mirror and cry and always want “better”.  Don’t stress if those pants don’t fit or if you think something on you doesn’t look right.  You being you, and owning it is sexy.  Don’t be anyone else.

Female US Air Force Soldier Gets Tased!

As part of a training exercise US Air Force soldiers must experience what it’s like to be tased.

I don’t think that’s what this female soldier was expecting! While being tasered she ended up grabbing more that what she bargained for.

I hope that man’s okay!

BAMF Of The Day: Troye Sivan

YouTuber Troye Sivan told his family 3 years ago that he was gay, and decided on the anniversary of that date to come out publicly to his audience.

Troye’s bravery in telling his story is what makes him today’s BAMF of the Day. His reason for creating the video is to inspire others who are afraid of talking about their sexuality or facing their sexuality to help them realize there’s nothing wrong with being gay, bisexual, or transgendered.

Obama Fights For Pit Bulls?!

After introducing the newest member of the Obama family, the White House has come out against breed-specific legislations.

The laws regulate and restrict ownership of dogs based on their breed with pit bulls being the most commonly targeted dog.

Groups such as the American Bar Association has said the restrictions do harm to dog breeds and their owners without actually improving public safety.

The White House released a statement responding to a petition entitled “Breed-Specific Legislation Is a Bad Idea” which asked for laws that target specific dog breeds to be outlawed on a federal level. The statement read:

We don’t support breed-specific legislation – research shows that bans on certain types of dogs are largely ineffective and often a waste of public resources.

In 2000, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention looked at twenty years of data about dog bites and human fatalities in the United States. They found that fatal attacks represent a very small proportion of dog bite injuries to people and that it’s virtually impossible to calculate bite rates for specific breeds.

The CDC also noted that the types of people who look to exploit dogs aren’t deterred by breed regulations – when their communities establish a ban, these people just seek out new, unregulated breeds. And the simple fact is that dogs of any breed can become dangerous when they’re intentionally or unintentionally raised to be aggressive.

For all those reasons, the CDC officially recommends against breed-specific legislation – which they call inappropriate. You can read more from them here.

As an alternative to breed-specific policies, the CDC recommends a community-based approach to prevent dog bites. And ultimately, we think that’s a much more promising way to build stronger communities of pets and pet owners.

Lisa LaFontaine, President of the Washington Humane Society, believes the statement provides a big boost for those who advocate against breed-specific legislation.

Ron Swanson Has Emotions?!

Parks and Recreation recently released a supercut of the many emotions displayed by Ron Swanson.

I didn’t think Ron Swanson had any emotions other than quiet anger or indifference, but I was wrong!

He can feel, and soon he might even get to be a real boy like everyone else!

Asian Giant Hornets Are Killing People!

21 people in China have died from being stung by the massive insects, and the problem only seems to be growing worse!

The Asian Giant Hornet grows to an average of 2.2 inches in length, which is the insect equivalent of a Buick.

This year, attacks from the giant flying death traps have been more frequent than usual. Health officials believe the warmer weather may have led to increased breeding among the insects.

The mayor of one plagued city in the province of Shaanxi announced plans to establish a 24-hour ER team to combat the hornets.

Luckily for those of us in the states, they’re in Asia. That is, until some of the species was discovered in Illinois.

Kill it. Kill it with fire before it spreads!
