Schtuff I Learned Last Week

Smiley Piercing – I’d never heard of this type of piercing before, until I saw one. Personally, like so many things people are piercing these days, this one sounds like a nightmare (and a pain in the ass).

Expired OTC Meds – A friend recently got ill and I was telling her about my cure-all: Alka-Seltzer Plus Cold & Cough (the purple one). So, I went home to grab some of mine and noticed that it was “expired” by a few months (another medicine I also recommended was more like 8 months). I hear SO much drama over expiration dates on food & medicine, I thought I’d check online and see what the consensus was. Here’s what I found, according to Harvard Medical School: It turns out that the expiration date on a drug does stand for something, but probably not what you think it does. Since a law was passed in 1979, drug manufacturers are required to stamp an expiration date on their products. This is the date at which the manufacturer can still guarantee the full potency and safety of the drug. Continue reading

Duggar Derp

*SIGH* Alright, I’ve been putting this off since before Christmas. I was initially going to title this post “Well, Kiss THAT Christmas Special Goodbye”. I chose this title because The Duggars used 2010’s holiday season to exploit their latest suckling. They were geared up to do the same last year, but, unfortunately (?) that baby didn’t make it. I put a question mark after unfortunately because maybe it was divine intervention; that baby dodged a huge, kooky bullet. Unfortunately, the public didn’t. Which brings me to this post: the exploitation of the stillborn fetus. Yes, you read correctly. Now you know why I couldn’t bring myself to post this around Christmastime. It’s both a downer on SO many levels (and those levels have sub-levels) and just a whole new plateau of ignorant.

Just an FYI before you make the jump, these pictures were pixelated on SO many sites, though I don’t find them all that shocking. However, I do find the fact that they were taken at all, much less exploited in such a gruesome way, somewhat shocking. Thanks for nuthin’, reality TV. Apparently this wasn’t enough to make the producers over at “The Learning Channel” (what exactly are we “learning” from this show?) head for the hills, since, according to IMDB, the show is heading into its 9th season. I’m all out of words to even talk about how tactless and sad this all is. Apparently “religion” can mask anything. *sigh* Train. Wreck. Continue reading

I went to see the new Harry Potter, er, I mean Daniel Radcliffe movie, The Woman In Black, on Wednesday. I remember seeing the trailer for it and thinking it looked like a fun ride. It was!

First off, a synopsis for those unfamiliar with the premise: A young lawyer travels to a remote village where he discovers the vengeful ghost of a scorned woman is terrorizing the locals.

Now I knew that Dark Castle has been remaking William Castle films (in the beginning, but have since done other non Castle films), like The House On Haunted Hill, Thir13en Ghosts, Ghost Ship, etc. WELL, what I didn’t know was that Hammer Films had had a revival and that this film (The Woman In Black) was one of those productions. Interesting! I always enjoyed Hammer films of the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Continue reading
