The lines that we have to drive between are not there as a suggestion. I am talking to the hover drivers. The next installment of bad drivers highlights “the hoverer.” The Hoverer has no respect for the lines that we stay inside of. He was probably the kid in art class that colored all over the paper with disregard to any drawing. When I am driving and a hoverer is approaching me while seemingly trying to sideswipe me a certain feeling of agitation and nausea comes over and I get scared. I envision this crazy driver just grabbing the wheel and maliciously knocking me off the road. Who knows what is really going on in the hoverer’s mind? They should be concentrating on staying in between those little dashed lines. But they aren’t. They are scrolling for the next song on their iPod, dialing their friend, checking their teeth and using their knees for steering with no regard of their or your safety. A way to avoid the hoverer is to quickly pass them and leave them behind so they have no way of coming back in your driving area. Just imagine this is your own little high-speed chase from whatever is coming after you. Then once they are gone, you can carry on your merry way with one hand on 10:00 and the other on 2:00.

The video is not a scene from a Cormac McCarthy novel; it’s footage of Japan. I’ve never been to Japan, but the stories that have been told by my peers continue to flow with nothing but praise and admiration. Their culture, food and presentation surpass your average dedication to meticulousness. Unfortunately the catastrophe that has happened to them within the past week helps us realize that environmental disasters have no prejudice when it comes to first world countries. This concept makes us realize that no matter how well off a country is, it is still vulnerable and has no defense against an environmental tragedy. My heart and prayers don’t necessarily go out to the souls that were lost from the earthquake and tsunami. They go out to all the survivors who have been through this, are now living in this and dealing with the aftermath of mess, hunger and loneliness. There lives will never be the same. I hope they survive and turn around this heartbreak for the better.

Possibly one of the worse celebrity ads? Ever heard of Waka Flocka? If not, he's a rapper that came to fame with songs such as “Oh Let’s Do It” and “No Hands.” But for some reason I think he will now be known as that rapper who got naked on the Peta ads and covered his nether regions with his bling. Oh My! Doesn’t Lil’ Wayne have way more tattoos? Wouldn’t he be a little better of a choice? Oh that’s right. I highly doubt Lil’ Wayne would actually partake in this type of advertising. There’s just some things that should not be made public and Waka Flocka naked should be one of them. What do you think?

Today is International Women’s Day! Yayyy!!!!! How do you celebrate this day if you are a woman? I have no idea and am open to any suggestions. I guess you can look at how far we’ve come by looking back. While searching through vintage ads that portrayed women as nothing more than sexual objects, I found one ad that I absolutely adored. The Woman’s Head! Just like a hunter who proudly hangs the head of his largest game, a man can hang the head of a woman he has proudly conquered. They even have 3 different options: redhead, brunette and blonde! I guess the Hispanic, Black and Asian models didn’t make an appearance until a Women’s Head 2.0 came out a couple years later.

Boob-juice ice cream is going to be hitting the markets on Friday. Icecreamists, an ice cream shop in London, has created ice cream with human milk. Hmmmm….so many questions initially come to mind, like is this safe? Apparently, according to the online ad, the milk-donors had to pass a screening before the pumping began. The ice cream will be sold at $23 a scoop. I would like to know how they came up with this idea, and what they were smoking. In my mind, he conversation went something like this (in British accents):
“Yea this ice cream tastes great, but it’s cow’s milk chap. We aren’t raised to drink cow’s milk. What other animal you know drinks another animal’s milk?”
“What are you trying to say chap?”
“We need to drink human milk! It’s brilliant!”
“No mate, that’s not right.”
“Ok. So how about if we make ice cream out of human milk?”
So who’s going to be lining up to try this out? And what benefits will it bring to the consumer’s health?
