Girl With Three Boobs a Fake?! Everything to Know About Jasmine Tridevil's Elaborate Hoax

http://www.eonline.com/news/582050/girl-with-three-boobs-a-fake-everything-to-know-about-jasmine-tridevil-s-elaborate-hoax

This is exactly why people have trust issues.

Just yesterday, the world was introduced to the shocking and controversial Jasmine Tridevil, a 21-year-old licensed massage therapist who claimed to have undergone a $20,000 plastic surgery procedure to add a third breast to her body so that she would become "unattractive to men"—and maybe score herself an MTV reality show.

Well, now we find out that three-boob girl is a fake, and her entire story is a hoax. However, the real story behind everything is still a doozy.

Snopes.com took a deeper look at Tridevil's claims, only to find out that all evidence points to her fooling everyone.

PLEASE help the Democrat FIRED for running for office in FL (donate, comment & keep kicked)

Viviana Janer is an amazing woman running for County Commission in Osceola County which is just south of Orlando. She worked for the Marriott time-share company for ELEVEN YEARS until she decided to run for office when they fired her. Why did they fire her? Because they are supporters of her opponent John Quiñones, who is a darling of big business special interests.

With $60,475 in his campaign fund Quiñones has a huge fundraising advantage over Janer's $18,345, who now has to deal with losing her job. Meanwhile Marriott stroked a $1000 check to the opponent. THIS IS WRONG.

So PLEASE DU -- this is super important. You can make a difference for this Democrat. Take a moment to donate just a few bucks to her campaign, or at least leave a message of support on her website.

ICYMI, here's the story:

Osceola Commission candidate fired after refusing to quit campaign

Viviana Janer is a Democratic nominee campaigning for a seat on the Osceola County Commission. She's also newly jobless.

Her longtime employer, Marriott Vacations Worldwide, fired her after giving her an ultimatum: Quit the campaign or lose your job.

Janer, a Democrat and first-time candidate for office, won the Aug. 26 Democratic primary for District 2 with 79 percent of the vote. She will face incumbent Republican Commissioner John Quiñones in the general election on Nov. 4.

But the time-share company where she had worked for 11 years dismissed her Friday, saying her candidacy and possible service on the commission created a conflict of interest. Janer was given the choice of leaving the campaign or resigning. She declined to do either and was fired.

According to campaign-finance reports, Marriott International gave $1,000 to Quiñones' campaign in March. Marriott International spun off Marriott Worldwide Vacations in 2011.

Fort Lauderdale Targets Homeless Population, Outlaws Sleeping In Public And Panhandling

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/09/23/fort-lauderdale-homelessness-ban_n_5869380.html

Casey Cooper believes he should be able to lay his head to rest in public. But the City of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, thinks otherwise.

Cooper is one of the city's homeless that will be affected by a local ban on sleeping outside -- an ordinance passed last week that prohibits "camping" within the downtown limits. An individual who violates the ordinance faces a $500 fine and 60 days in jail, the Sun Sentinel reported.

"I have to worry about where I’m going to sleep at, where’s the next meal at, how am I going to get the next piece of clothing, worry if the cops are going to mess with me, and you’re going to try to pass a law that’s ... going to ban homelessness?" Cooper asked city commissioners during a public meeting to discuss the measure, according to Think Progress. "Sleep is a human right."

A separate ordinance, also passed last week, bans panhandling at intersections of public streets. The law also bars those trying to raise funds for charitable causes. Those who violate the ordinance face a potential $500 fine and 60 days in jail as well.


Sigh, so not right.

Finding a Door Into Banking, Walmart to Offer Checking Accounts

http://www.nytimes.com/2014/09/24/business/finding-a-door-into-banking-walmart-to-offer-checking-accounts.html?partner=rss&emc=rss&_r=0

Here comes Wal-Bank again.

After years of thwarted efforts to break into banking, Walmart is making another run at everyday financial services.

Walmart, the nation’s largest retailer, is teaming up with Green Dot, known for its prepaid payment cards, to supply checking accounts to almost anyone over 18 who passes an identification check.

Daniel Eckert, senior vice president at Walmart, said on Tuesday that the accounts would be available nationwide by the end of October. The accounts are intended to be low-cost alternatives to traditional bank checking accounts, with no fees for overdrafts or bounced checks and no minimum account balance.

*end of excerpt*

Mea culpa: I was wrong about Wal-Mart offering space to lawyers, so, I have no objection to this either.

Blizzard cancels its 'World of Warcraft' successor

http://www.theverge.com/2014/9/23/6833563/blizzard-cancels-its-world-of-warcraft-successor

"What comes after World of Warcraft?" It's the question Blizzard has been asking for years. WoW is one of the most successful games of all time — just one of many for the studio behind StarCraft, Diablo, and Hearthstone. The next-generation project even had a name: Titan.

Titan is dead.

Though never official, Blizzard co-founder and CEO Mike Morhaime has confirmed with Polygon that the project has been canceled. Senior VP of story and franchise Chris Metzen elaborated further:

"We took a step back and realized that it had some cool hooks. It definitely had some merit as a big, broad idea, but it didn't come together. It did not distill. The music did not flow. For all our good intentions and our experience and the pure craftsmanship that we brought together, we had to make that call."

Favorite pizza, if you must eat outside of your home or order in

For me, any small Italian restaurant. Do you have a fave restaurant ? FTR, I don't find Pizza Hut vomitous, although I know most do.

learned something from you

I am in Zone 9b and FL has zones 8a to 10b, I think, in the Keys.

I had no idea one could register to vote online ! I had to do it old-school style in 1976, of course. I'm sure the Republicans hate this. Do you have to appear in person to verify your identity ?

BS percentage needed on "the 25 year Great Depression"

http://moneymorningtv.com/rickards/ocho.php?pub_id=454975&s1=gdnmmp3

Yes, it's obviously a profit-driven site, so that places its credibility in doubt immediately. Is this 100% BS, or is there any truth to it ? I keep seeing this all over the net. Thanks.
