Many people have different opinions about Marshawn Lynch and his lack of talking to the media. I for one think he's been quite creative in coming up with different catch words or phrases to use each time he actually will do a press conference. And if I'm being honest I feel him being fined for not wanting to talk is being blown of propotion compared to the real issues that are happening in the NFL these days. Love this mock "press conference" where we can actually see some of the real Marshawn Lynch!

(Via WFAA-TV Dallas) A man incarcerated in a Colorado correctional facility filed a lawsuit against NFL officials seeking over $88 billion in damages because of an overturned call.

Terry Hendrix, evidently a passionate Dallas Cowboys fan, is seeking $88,987,654,321.88 from the NFL in the wake of the controversial replay reversal in the Cowboys' NFC divisional round loss to the Green Bay Packers.

He names NFL Vice President of Officiating Dean Blandino, referee Gene Steratore and Commissioner Roger Goodell by name.

In the handwritten lawsuit filed Wednesday, Hendrix asks for the astronomical sum of money "for but not limited to: negligence, breach of fiduciary duty, and also reckless disregard."

Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant made what was first ruled a catch -- a spectacular one at that -- on a fourth down pass down the sideline.

After Packers head coach Mike McCarthy challenged the call, it was ruled that Bryant didn't complete "the process" of a catch.

Reaction to the play and the ambiguous rule primarily followed the "bad rule, good call" narrative. Hendrix believes his team and its fans were cheated.

He calls the video review and reversal a "fraud" and a "gross negligence" that caused "true injury" to the Dallas Cowboys.

Had the pivotal play late in the Jan. 11 game been ruled a catch, Hendrix believes the Cowboys would've been in position to secure a win and advance to the NFC Championship.

"Dean Blandino, Gene Steratore, and Roger Goodell are wrong and have stolen a victory from the plaintiffs," Hendrix wrote in the lawsuit. "The Cowboys' offensive line would have perfectly created an 'Autobahn' for DeMarco Murray to drive into the endzone for the score and victory."

Hendrix presumably arrived at the figure close to $89 billion because of Bryant's jersey number -- 88. The desired sum begins and ends with the number, and Hendrix refers to the Cowboys' star wideout as "Dez Bryant #88" numerous times in the lawsuit.

Hendrix, an inmate at Fremont Correctional Facility in Cañon City, Colorado, states that he appears as counsel for "Dez Bryant, all Dallas Cowboys fans and all people in or from the sovereign republic of Texas."

The suit seeks permission to move before court within 35 days.

In conjunction with the suit, Hendrix filed an application to continue with the case without paying the court fees.

When I Was Your Man - Thomas Rhett

From Yahoo:


1. Set the Date

Before you even think about reordering your bookshelf, Kondo believes you need to do a major clean-out—and make it a special event (a "tidying festival," as she calls it). That means you plan the day, get yourself psyched, and start in the morning. She also feels the process should be a "dialogue with yourself:" no Springsteen orDownton Abbey or CNN news ticker in the background, no help from friends, no distractions at all. Just you and your mess.

2. Follow the Order

Approach your sorting and discarding strategically. Those who immediately head to the attic to tackle a box of yearbooks, love letters or prom photos are doomed to fail, Kondo says. Instead, she recommends sorting by category, not location, and doing so in a very specific order starting with clothing (because it tends to have the least sentimental value), followed by books, papers, miscellaneous "stuff" (mysterious wires, free moisturizer samples, etc.), and, finally, mementos.

3. Dump it All Out

Here's where Kondo's rules get kinda radical. As you move through each category, you must lay every item out. So with clothing, you would place every stitch of clothing you own—everything in the closet, under the bed, in your parents' basement—on the floor. The idea is that you're confronted (and very likely horrified) by the sheer amount of stuff you have accumulated.

4. Toss, Toss, Toss

Gather the garbage bags—here comes the hard part. Pick up each item you own and ask yourself, "Does this bring me joy?" If the answer is no, out it goes. I know, I know. This is an impossible standard when faced with tax receipts or grandma's ashes. But for clothing, books and mementos, it works pretty well. Think of it this way: You're choosing what you want to keep, not what you want to toss.

5. Develop a Zero Tolerance Policy

There are some items that you don't have to even think about (hooray!) and should just trash, says Kondo. Among these: spare buttons (she insists you'll never use them, but a crafter friend of mine begs to differ… she turns hers into magnets), unread books, gifts you don't truly love, cosmetic samples that you save to use on trips, any kind of manual, and cords you can't identify.

6. Have No Mercy Towards Paperwork

"My basic principle for sorting papers is to throw them all away," Kondo writes. Her clients send a minimum of two 12-gallon bags to recycling (or the shredder). One successful follower shed 15 bags!

The exceptions: paperwork currently in use (bills), needed for a limited amount of time (like those tax receipts) or needed indefinitely (your lease). Divide those papers into two categories: Those that need to be addressed and those that just need to be saved.

7. Edit Your Photo Collection (A Lot)

If you stick to the plan, photos will be among the last things you sort. Unfortunately, as with everything else, you still need to go through them one by one—that includes removing all pics from photo albums, which I could not bring myself to do—and ask yourself if they make you happy. "Unexciting photos of scenery that you can't even place belong in the garbage," Kondo writes. (So much for that sunset!) For vacation photos, aim to keep no more than five prints total per day of the trip.

8. Say a Proper Goodbye

As you consign things either to the donation bin or the trash, Kondo suggests thanking each item for its service. It sounds silly, but I found it actually did make me feel better to say, "So long, sparkly tube top. Thanks for all the fun in college. Fare thee well on your next adventure!" I enjoyed giving my stuff a dignified send-off. The downside: It takes forever.

9. Master the Fold

Kondo feels strongly about folding clothes into rectangles and storing them standing up to maximize space. (She believes most items should be stored vertically.) Beware her instructional folding videos; they're so mesmerizing you may lose several hours repeatedly watching her demonstrate her technique with long-sleeved vs. short-sleeved tees.

10. Don't Buy Storage Equipment

Here's a liberating thought: You already have everything you need for simple storage, says Kondo. Her favorite tool is an empty shoebox (which she uses to store everything from shampoo to cake pans to stockings). Shoebox lids, meanwhile, can be put to work in your cupboards as trays for olive oil and spices. I suppose this means you never have to visit the Container Store again, but what fun would that be?

But US researchers say they've found a simple way of getting students to eat more greens: allowing them out to play before lunch, rather than after.

A study found that when recess is held before lunch, children ate 54 per cent more fruit and vegetables.

There was also a 45 per cent increase in students eating at least one serving of them.

From The Washington Post

It was a one-mile walk home from a Silver Spring park on Georgia Avenue on a Saturday afternoon. But what the parents saw as a moment of independence for their 10-year-old son and 6-year-old daughter, they say authorities viewed much differently.

Danielle and Alexander Meitiv say they are being investigated for neglect for the Dec. 20 trek — in a case they say reflects a clash of ideas about how safe the world is and whether parents are free to make their own choices about raising their children.

"We wouldn't have let them do it if we didn't think they were ready for it," Danielle said.

She said her son and daughter have previously paired up for walks around the block, to a nearby 7-Eleven and to a library about three-quarters of a mile away. "They have proven they are responsible," she said. "They've developed these skills."


"The world is actually even safer than when I was a child, and I just want to give them the same freedom and independence that I had — basically an old-fashioned childhood," she said. "I think it's absolutely critical for their development — to learn responsibility, to experience the world, to gain confidence and competency."
The Meitivs say they believe in"free-range" parenting, a movement that has been a counterpoint to the hyper-vigilance of "helicopter" parenting, with the idea that children learn self-reliance by being allowed to progressively test limits, make choices and venture out in the world.

On Dec. 20, Alexander agreed to let the children, Rafi and Dvora, walk from Woodside Park to their home, a mile south, in an area the family says the children know well.

The children made it about halfway.

Police picked up the children near the Discovery building, the family said, after someone reported seeing them.

Police on Wednesday did not immediately have information on the case. But a spokeswoman said that when concerns are reported, "we have a responsibility as part of our duty to check on people's welfare."

The Meitivs say their son told police that he and his sister were not doing anything illegal and are allowed to walk. Usually, their mother said, the children carry a laminated card with parent contact information that says: "I am not lost. I am a free-range kid." The kids didn't have the card that day.


"Parenthood is an exercise in risk management," she said. "Every day, we decide: Are we going to let our kids play football? Are we going to let them do a sleep­over? Are we going to let them climb a tree? We're not saying parents should abandon all caution. We're saying parents should pay attention to risks that are dangerous and likely to happen."
Danielle said she and her husband give parenting a lot of thought.

She added: "Abductions are extremely rare. Car accidents are not. The number one cause of death for children of their age is a car accident."

Danielle is a climate-science consultant, and Alexander is a physicist at the National Institutes of Health.

Alexander said he had a tense time with police on Dec. 20 when officers returned his children, asked for his identification and told him about the dangers of the world.

The more lasting issue has been with Montgomery County Child Protective Services, he said, which showed up a couple of hours after the police left.

Mary Anderson, a spokeswoman for CPS, said she could not comment on cases but that neglect investigations typically focus on questions of whether there has been a failure to provide proper care and supervision.

In such investigations, she said, CPS may look for guidance to a state law about leaving children unattended, which says children younger than 8 must be left with a reliable person who is at least 13 years old. The law covers dwellings, enclosures and vehicles.

The Meitivs say that on Dec. 20, a CPS worker required Alexander to sign a safety plan pledging he would not leave his children unsupervised until the following Monday, when CPS would follow up. At first he refused, saying he needed to talk to a lawyer, his wife said, but changed his mind when he was told his children would be removed if he did not comply.

Following the holidays, the family said, CPS called again, saying the agency needed to inquire further and visit the family's home. Danielle said she resisted.

"It seemed such a huge violation of privacy to examine my house because my kids were walking home," she said.


The family has a meeting set for next week at CPS offices in Rockville.
This week, a CPS social worker showed up at her door, she said. She did not let him in. She said she was stunned to later learn from the principal that her children were interviewed at school.

"I think what CPS considered neglect, we felt was an essential part of growing up and maturing," Alexander said. "We feel we're being bullied into a point of view about child-rearing that we strongly disagree with."

Nominees for the Golden Raspberry Awards were announced last night, and "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" leads the way with SEVEN Razzie nods, including Worst Picture.

One good thing is that MARK WAHLBERG did NOT get singled out for Worst Actor.

KIRK CAMERON's "Saving Christmas" and "The Legend of Hercules" were a close second, with six nominations apiece. And, ADAM SANDLER once again was nominated for Worst Actor.

New twist this year: The Razzie's are going to reward a POSITIVE achievement. They have a category called the Redeemer Award, where they celebrate actors who've gone from terrible roles to much more award worthy ones.

For instance, BEN AFFLECK is up for it, after going from "Gigli" to "Argo" and "Gone Girl" . . . and JENNIFER ANISTON was nominated for going from being a four-time Razzie nominee to the critically-acclaimed movie "Cake".

But in case you are curious here is the full list of nominees:

Worst Picture:

"Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

"Left Behind"

"The Legend of Hercules"

"Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles"

"Transformers: Age of Extinction"


Worst Actor:

Kirk Cameron, "Kirk Cameron's Saving Christmas"

Nicholas Cage, "Left Behind"

Kellan Lutz, "The Legend of Hercules"

Seth MacFarlane, "A Million Ways to Die in the West"

Adam Sandler, "Blended"


Worst Supporting Actor:

Mel Gibson, "Expendables 3"

Kelsey Grammer, "Expendables 3", "Legends of Oz", "Think Like a Man Too", "Transformers: Age of Extinction"

Shaquille O'Neal, "Blended"

Arnold Schwarzenegger, "Expendables 3"

Kiefer Sutherland, "Pompeii"


Worst Actress:

From The New York Times:

The 36 questions in the study are broken up into three sets, with each set intended to be more probing than the previous one.

The idea is that mutual vulnerability fosters closeness. To quote the study's authors, "One key pattern associated with the development of a close relationship among peers is sustained, escalating, reciprocal, personal self-disclosure." Allowing oneself to be vulnerable with another person can be exceedingly difficult, so this exercise forces the issue.

The final task Ms. Catron and her friend try — staring into each other's eyes for four minutes — is less well documented, with the suggested duration ranging from two minutes to four. But Ms. Catron was unequivocal in her recommendation. "Two minutes is just enough to be terrified," she told me. "Four really goes somewhere."

Set I

1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want as a dinner guest?

2. Would you like to be famous? In what way?

3. Before making a telephone call, do you ever rehearse what you are going to say? Why?

4. What would constitute a "perfect" day for you?

5. When did you last sing to yourself? To someone else?

6. If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year-old for the last 60 years of your life, which would you want?

7. Do you have a secret hunch about how you will die?

8. Name three things you and your partner appear to have in common.

9. For what in your life do you feel most grateful?

10. If you could change anything about the way you were raised, what would it be?

11. Take four minutes and tell your partner your life story in as much detail as possible.

12. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained any one quality or ability, what would it be?

Set II

13. If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or anything else, what would you want to know?

14. Is there something that you've dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven't you done it?

15. What is the greatest accomplishment of your life?

16. What do you value most in a friendship?

17. What is your most treasured memory?

18. What is your most terrible memory?

19. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly, would you change anything about the way you are now living? Why?

20. What does friendship mean to you?

21. What roles do love and affection play in your life?

22. Alternate sharing something you consider a positive characteristic of your partner. Share a total of five items.

23. How close and warm is your family? Do you feel your childhood was happier than most other people's?

24. How do you feel about your relationship with your mother?

Set III

25. Make three true "we" statements each. For instance, "We are both in this room feeling ... "

26. Complete this sentence: "I wish I had someone with whom I could share ... "

27. If you were going to become a close friend with your partner, please share what would be important for him or her to know.

28. Tell your partner what you like about them; be very honest this time, saying things that you might not say to someone you've just met.

29. Share with your partner an embarrassing moment in your life.

30. When did you last cry in front of another person? By yourself?

31. Tell your partner something that you like about them already.

32. What, if anything, is too serious to be joked about?

33. If you were to die this evening with no opportunity to communicate with anyone, what would you most regret not having told someone? Why haven't you told them yet?

34. Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved ones and pets, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item. What would it be? Why?

35. Of all the people in your family, whose death would you find most disturbing? Why?

36. Share a personal problem and ask your partner's advice on how he or she might handle it. Also, ask your partner to reflect back to you how you seem to be feeling about the problem you have chosen.

If you could choose any topping you ever wanted and put it on a pizza what would your 'Dream' topping be? This was asked in a recent survey and this is what people came up with for the top ten:


1. Lobster


2. Shrimp


3. Crab


4. Filet mignon


5. Chicken


6. Pineapple


7. Ham


8. Mayo jaga . . . a combo of mayonnaise, potatoes, and bacon that's big in Japan


9. A combination of curry, coconut, and kale


10. Caviar


The survey also found the average American eats eight slices of pizza a month. So if you live to be 70, that's 5,952 slices in a lifetime. But one in ten people eat 36 slices a month . . . which is about a medium pizza a week . . . and works out to just under 27,000 slices.

A woman in Melbourne, Australia just listed her husband's 2010 Porsche 911 Carrera 997 for $16,000. But it's worth at least three TIMES that much.

In fact, with its low mileage, it could be worth up to SIX times that. But she's not selling it for profit . . . she's selling it for REVENGE.

She listed it for sale after she caught her husband cheating on her after 25 years of marriage . . . she followed him to his "guys' poker night" and found out he was really going to a restaurant with a young blonde.

She says the Porsche is in her name, so she's selling it for $16,000 . . . quote, "just enough for a flight [and] accommodations in Europe so I can fondle with all the wealthy European men."

She posted the ad three days ago, and found a buyer almost immediately

There's a guy on Twitter named bonerman_inc . . . so you KNOW he's got his life together. And he went to McDonald's on Friday and got a strawberry sundae. Then as he looked at it, he was shocked to see the SOUL OF A DEMON.

Seriously . . . the way the strawberry sauce flowed into the ice cream, it looked exactly like an undead skull on the side of his cup.

So he tweeted a photo of the cup to McDonald's, and said, quote, "Hey McDonald's, I ordered a sundae but instead you gave me the souls of the damned, did I have to pay extra for this?" Obviously McDonald's didn't respond.

Here's the Demon Sundae....no word if he ate it!

This is the stuff that NIGHTMARES are made of . . . and it's going to affect how every single person listening right now approaches their trips to the bathroom today.

Stephanie Lasca works at a public relations company in San Diego, California called Vertical PR. She went into the bathroom on the second floor on Tuesday, and was about to sit on the toilet when she noticed the water level was a little high.

Naturally, she assumed one of her NASTY lady coworkers had clogged the thing, so she took the plunger to it. And when she did . . . a GIANT SNAKE popped out and flicked its tongue at her.

So she ran out of the bathroom . . . probably screamed quite a bit . . . taped the door shut . . . and called Animal Services.

They came to the office, and found out it was a Colombian rainbow boa. By then it was on the bathroom floor, so they took it to a shelter . . . and it BIT a handler there.

They have no idea how it got into the second-floor toilet.

Here are the pics of the snake that popped out of the toilet....

Gone are the days when we were simply meat-eaters or vegetarians.

Over the past few years, soaring numbers of people have opted to become vegans, pescetarians and fruitarians.

Now, there is the rise of the reducetarian - someone who cuts back on meat, but doesn't give it up entirely.

Advocates say the move not only boosts health, but benefits the environment - and is easier to achieve than the more radical options.

The Consumer Electronics Show is going on in Las Vegas right now, and a French company called Emiota just introduced the first-ever SMART BELT.

It automatically adjusts to your waist, like when you sit down or eat a big meal. And when you gain or lose weight, you can keep on using it. But it also JUDGES you.

The belt sends data to an iPhone app, and if it notices your waist is getting larger, it starts SHAMING you about the weight you're gaining.

Mainly by having the app send you notifications on your phone . . . not by having Siri call you a fatty. Although that might be more effective. It also tracks how many steps you take, and SHAKES if it notices you've been sitting too long.

If that wasn't enough to avoid it, it's metal and UGLY. But Emiota says they're partnering with a leather belt maker, so it'll probably end up as an expensive luxury product.

The belt should go on sale toward the end of this year. Here are some pics of the Smart Belt:

For a lot of people, there's NO LIMIT to how much they'll spend on their pets' health . . . and apparently that's true even for totally RANDOM pets.

A guy in Norfolk, England recently noticed his GOLDFISH wasn't acting right, so he took it to the vet. And her diagnosis was that his goldfish was CONSTIPATED . . . badly.

She said it would cost $459 for her to perform a minor surgery and . . . uh . . . break up a clump that was stuck in his excretory system.

And the guy GLADLY spent the money on the surgery to help his goldfish poop freely again.

So the vet put it in water that had anesthesia mixed in . . . used a tiny probe to monitor its heart rate . . . and successfully removed the blockage after a one-hour procedure.

The fish is now doing well.

If you think you can't stick to a New Year's resolution, maybe this 11-year-old's story will inspire you.

At Christmastime last year, Jonathan Sarisky's parents offered then-10-year-old Jonathan and his older brother, Andrew, a choice. They could have $100 now, or, if they chose to accept it, a payout of $500 later, with just one condition -- avoiding all sugary beverages for an entire year.

Andrew opted for the sure thing, but sixth-grader Jonathan took the yearlong challenge, sipping his last soda on Jan. 3, 2014, on the occasion of Andrew's birthday. He says he savored the orange Fanta as long as he could.

"I didn't brush my teeth until I couldn't taste it anymore," he told the Livingston Enterprise.

Entering into an impressive contract with his parents, the sugary beverage ban included soft drinks, milkshakes, sports drinks and even 100 percent fruit juice. The ban left only milk and water as Jonathan's choices for the year.

One year later, Jonathan is ready to cash in on his prize. He says the challenge wasn't too difficult for him, with the hardest part being remembering not to slip when others offered him drinks.

Jonathan's parents say the point of the exercise was to teach self-discipline and how delayed gratification can result in bigger rewards. Jonathan's mom, Renee Shifley, says the challenge has helped her son's self-confidence.

Jonathan says once the challenge ends this weekend, he might indulge in an occasional soda now and then, but only as a splurge.

"I might have just one pop, but I'm not going to overdo it," he said.

The Associated Press contributed to this report.
