*What with tomorrow being Thanksgiving, I feel it’s timely, and touching, to share this video with you. Maybe you can watch as you travel to work by bus or train; or maybe as you ride to work in the carpool. What are you doing for lunch? Maybe watch it on your tablet as you sit for a while to eat your sandwich or drink your Latte.

I’m not gonna lie. I just stumbled upon this video. And please don’t look at this as a “downer” but it shows so many people of note, celebrities, who have died from cancer. I was so moved by it as I watched because, well…

Tomorrow is Thanksgiving.

And as families of all sorts come together, chances are there will be a moment when someone notices who is not there.

Medical Incredible: What’s Up Your Nose…No Seriously! (Watch)

Myiasis (1)

*I know. That’s a strange question to ask in the headline of a story, but the video is going to be much worse – especially if you’re squeamish.

Yep. That was your warning.

But seriously, did you know that there are people living with a condition called Myiasis? It’s a parasitic infection of fly larva, and you know what a fly is before it becomes a fly right? Well THAT could very well be making a home up your nasal passage.

Still can’t grasp what the heck I’m talking about?

OK, let me say it straight out then. There is a video where a doctor in India did an endoscopic procedure on a patient that shows him removing LIVE MAGGOTS from the man’s nose.

As the singer Lourdes would say, “So there.”

Freeway Exit Sign Spelled Wrong is Embarrassment to SubContractor

Olympic Blvd

*Dang. We’ve all made spelling errors, but hopefully they were not this big. And I do mean that literally.

Caltrans, the California Dept. of Transportation, recently installed a new sign for the Olympic Boulevard exit off the 710 freeway in Southern California. But instead of spelling it Olympic , it read “Olimpic.”

The mistake was spotted by a construction crew with the agency the next morning who brought the mistake to attention the next morning, but it was too late because drivers had already saw it, snapped pictures, and placed them on social media.

Want Your Womans’ ‘Private Parts’ to Smell Like Peaches? (So Do These Dudes)

black-woman-eating-peach

*…so they created a product to “git ‘er done!”

An article was written earlier this week that introduced Sweet Peach, a new probiotic supplement said to be a product that would make the private parts of women smell like fruit.

But whoa!

People have to be careful how they present this stuff because as a result, the response across the internet was understandable outrage: Who the hell were the guys behind this and what right did they have to decide how women’s bodies ought to smell?

But as it turns out, Sweet Peach wasn’t even created by Austen Heinz and Gilad Gome, the two “start up dudes” who introduced it to the world at the DEMO tech conference. Apparently, the men not only  misled people, but they characterized the product totally wrong.

The sole founder and CEO of Sweet Peach Probiotics is Audrey Hutchinson – a 20-year-old woman who describes herself as an “ultrafeminist.”

Is It Fair to Sentence this Rapper to Life, Just Because of His Explicit Music?

*I think we can agree that not every rapper makes the kind of music we’d be blasting from our stereo, but damn, if he start arresting them because of the content of the music they make, its safe to assume there would be a serious decline in the free population. Just look at the case of rapper Tiny Doo, whose album – No Safety – may very well put him behind bars…

For life.

Born Brandon Duncan , he made a mix tape that the San Diego County District Attorney’s office alleges is proof that he is an active member of a gang that orchestrated a series of shootings in California. A group of 14 men are currently awaiting trial for the attempted murders, and Duncan has been included in the bunch.

Why, because of his mix tape?
