Social media crowd-shaming can be toxic and destructive, but calling out inappropriate behavior also can lead to justice served. Brett Nelson, from Prineville, Oregon, was hiking at Tumalo Falls near Bend last Saturday when he encountered a man and two teenagers defacing a railing at the falls overlook. He asked them to stop and they refused, so he took their picture and posted it to Facebook. This has led to the Forest Service launching an investigation to find and perhaps prosecute them. No word on if anyone is trying to track down the person who defaced this picnic table.

You know, I always thought Electrolux only sold vacuum cleaners... you know, the door to door salesman who dumps a can of cigaratte butts on your floor and then asks to clean them up for you. Turns out they make refrigerators, too. Can you tell me what model that one is?
The catchphrase "You talkin' to me?" has become a pop culture mainstay. In 2005, it was ranked number 10 on the American Film Institute's AFI's 100 Years... 100 Movie Quotes list. In the corresponding scene, Travis Bickle is looking into a mirror at himself, imagining a confrontation that would give him a chance to draw his gun. He says: "You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? You talkin' to me? Then who the hell else are you talkin' to? You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here. Who the fuck do you think you're talking to?" Veteran screenwriter Paul Schrader went on to say that De Niro's "Are you talkin' to me?" performance was inspired by a routine by, "an underground New York comedian" whom he had once seen, possibly including his signature line.
Okay, here's a softball. Whene can I take a nice anal cruise?
Doomsday is a 2008 science fiction action film that film takes place in the future in Scotland, which has been quarantined because of a deadly virus. The car featured in the ending chase scene is a 2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed. Bentley does not participate in product placement, so the film's producers purchased three of the cars for approximately $150,000 each. One car was mistakenly driven into a gorge; the second was used for the lion's share of the stunt shots. The filmmakers were astonished at how durable the car was despite the punishment it took; by the time filming concluded, the car only needed a cosmetic refit. Its frame and engine were all intact. Added bonus: Lee-anne Liebenberg's fantastic set of tits!
A surge protector attempts to limit the voltage supplied to an electric device by either blocking or by shorting to ground any unwanted voltages above a safe threshold. Scaled-down versions of these devices are sometimes installed in residential service entrance electrical panels, to protect equipment in a household from similar hazards. Many power strips have basic surge protection built in; these are typically clearly labeled as such. However, power strips that do not provide surge protection are sometimes erroneously referred to as "surge protectors".
