"I don't want no problems!"

Attention Rite-Aide Shoppers! Don’t Be Alarmed By The Bear Cub in Aisle Three (Video)

"I don't want no problems!"

“I don’t want no problems!”

*Let’s see. Did she say milk or cheese? Maybe it was sausages? Oh what cute stationary. Oh crap, here comes the humans!

Recently, shoppers in an Oregon Rite-Aide found something they didn’t quite expect in aisle 3 of the store. A bear cub – just walking around as calm as you please.

You could hear comments by store staff and shoppers saying things like, “I’ll back up if he gets to close,” and “How cute.”

*Chances are, if you wear your hair natural, you’ve at least heard about beauty blogger, Meechy Monroe.

She is a rare breed of woman, who built a huge following online because of her empathy for women who wanted to leave the chemical behind and return to their nappy roots.

And she did it beautifully, too.

She utilized her blog, social media and YouTube channels to win tens of thousands of followers who watched and listened to her with baited breath as she twisted, twirled, patted and puffed her signature, textured Afro into an elegant, bouffant-esque style. Her YouTube channel piled up more than 2.4 million views. She gained 36,000 followers on Instagram and reached thousands more through Twitter and her blog.

So you can imagine the heartbreak her fans felt when they learned that the 29-year-old West Pullman resident had been diagnosed with cancer.

Are You Nuts!? Not Anymore. Man Explains Why He Cut Off His Penis (NSFW Photo!)

 

gelding (removes penis)

WARNING: You may be offended by the content and images in this story.

*The answer to that headline question is probably “absolutely not!” Seeing as nuts is no longer a part of the subject’s anatomy.

Have you ever heard the term “nullo?”

Well, since we know that we can learn something new every day. This is today’s “new thing.” A “nullo” is a man who has removed his sex organ.

And the man in this story that decided to become one recently opened up about why he decided to cut his penis and testicles off and become a “nullo.”

Of course there’s the option to take a look at the bottom of this story.

He goes by the name “Gelding,” and he’s not surprised that people think he’s a bit strange once they learn what he’s done.

How Would You Like Your Coffee? ‘Preferably Mouse-Free Thank You’

mouse in mcdonalds cup

*Hey, I’ll be the first person to raise a brow at this accusation, but nevertheless, its a claim one Canadian man made against a Fredericton, New Brunswick, McDonald’s in that country.

Haven’t you heard Mickey Dee’s has the best coffee ever? Apparently, Ron Morais did too. He told the CBC that he was nearly at the bottom of his cup, when he decided to take the lid off and gulp the rest of it down – but stopped short because “there was a little bit of a surprise in my coffee cup. It was a dead mouse.”

Oh god. Hold on. I think I’m gonna be sick!

Detroit Man Will Swap His Decrepit House for Your iPhone 6

Detroit man swap home for iphone 6

*Don’t look too bad on the outside, huh? With the price of real estate sky-rocketing all over the place, you may want to seriously consider taking this man up on his offer to swap his decrepit house in Detroit for an iPhone 6.

The house has three bedrooms, a basement and garden. But as you can imagine, its in pretty bad shape. For starters, it has no front door and broken windows.

The house has been on the market in the bankrupt city, but so far nobody has come forward to buy.

College Bound: ‘2nd Annual African American College Planning Conference’ Coming Up! (Part. 2)

black-students-graduating

*The “2nd Annual African American College Planning Conference” aims to arm students and their parents with much needed information on how to best prepare for getting into the college of their choice. And with representatives from local and national; private and public colleges in attendance, students will also learn more about historically black colleges and universities.

In part 1 of the EURweb interview with Delta Sigma Theta sorority sister, Kimberly J. Cooper, she revealed some of the reasons why a conference such as this is imperative for a minority student stating, because they wouldn’t normally get  information about historically black colleges, and may not be exposed to information on things like how to write the ultra-important “personal statement.”

Now as we continue (in part 2) to elaborate on what attendees can expect at the conference, which will take place on Saturday, October 25, Cooper also shares why getting through the college admissions process has presented unique challenges for many African American students.

“We’re starting to shorten the divide between African American students going to college, but it’s definitely not close to what we see with non-minority students,” says Cooper, in response to Lee Bailey‘s question about the obstacles many African American students face in trying to go to college.

In other words, a student doesn’t necessary have to attend a junior college first; many of them can successfully transfer to a four-year-college straight out of high school.

Cooper implies that the process tends to discourage some students and paves the way for a thinking process that gives way to doubt – and manifests in their thinking maybe they can’t afford it or maybe they aren’t going to get in anyway, so why bother. “So it prevents them from actually trying. They end up…under-placed.

And that’s not good.

“Our goal is to get as many students as we can to go to four year colleges. Those that want to go and have the grades and things to go, and at least give them the same opportunity to have the same information that other students might get,” says Cooper, an executive at Nestle USA in Santa Monica, about what they hope to accomplish at the conference.

The “Mini College Fair” taking place at the conference will embolden students and their parents with insightful tips on how to find, apply and pay for college. They will also be able to network with peers and meet school representatives from schools all across the country including HBCUs like Spelman, Howard University, and Morehouse College. Reps from USC, UCI and UCLA will be there as well.

MorehouseAnd as for being able to afford college? Parents especially will appreciate this news.

“There’s so many scholarships out there…Not only are there scholarships available at certain foundations, there are also scholarships available at certain schools,” Cooper states.

The 2nd Annual African American College Planning Conference takes place on Saturday, October 25 at Golden Valley High School, 27051 Robert C. Lee Parkway, Santa Clarita, California 91321.

REGISTRATION is from 8:00a.m. to 8:30 a.m. WORKSHOPS are from 8:30a.m. to 12:30 a.m. and the COLLEGE FAIR will begin at 12:30p.m. and go until 1:30p.m.
