RIP in Peace Gawker

I never thought I would see the day.

After nearly fourteen years of operation, Gawker.com will be shutting down next week…Nick Denton, the company’s outgoing CEO, informed current staffers of the site’s fate on Thursday afternoon, just hours before a bankruptcy court in Manhattan will decide whether to approve Univision’s bid for Gawker Media’s other assets.

Evidently Gawker.com is dunzo, and the staffers are being dispersed to “other editorial roles, either at one of the other six sites or elsewhere within Univision”.

How Dare Twitter Not Verify Lynette’s Account

Lynette Young, apparently important and famous, is having a nice little “don’t you know who I am” huff on twitter.

Screen Shot 2016-08-16 at 1.34.22 PM

Yes twitter, that bon mot graveyard for the 40 somethings who refuse to figure out snapchat, has denied her request for the Verified Badge that everyone on social media drools over. Despite having a whopping 14,000 followers and namedropping Biz Stone, Ms. Literally One Of The First was unable to get that ego validating blue checkmark. Can you believe this? Can nothing be done to right this injustice?

Fat Guy Across America Would Like To Sell A Children’s Book

Eric Hites, the fat guy who said he would ride his bicycle across America but instead fiddlefarted around for a year before returning home, has announced that he and his little garden gnome wife are trying to produce a children’s book.

Age range will be for any range as you can read it to a toddler and they can enjoy the colorful pictures and the words are simple yet be good for a first Grader.

Instead of spending the past 30 days getting real jobs, going to fitness boot camp, or riding daily like he claimed, Eric has instead opted to grift money for a binding machine so he and his all-but-illiterate wife can ‘write’ a book for kids.

Of course they are also selling bike chain key rings because everybody wants a piece of the fat guy adventure!

Order a key-ring with chain from Fat guy’s bike to help with the journey and to be a part of the journey. Soon he will be leaving from Dallas, Texas to complete his journey across America. Be a part of it today by supporting the ride!

Hasn’t the internet been ‘supporting the ride’ for like, 18 months? How about Eric supporting his own ride now? Ya know, with an actual job?

And of course her blog is full of wonderful commentary about America and advice on how to not be killed by police like Alton Sterling.

This is why I do not associate with poor people or blacks.  I treasure my life, and I simply refuse to put myself into these types of situations around people who have no regard for the law or the GODLY way of life.

I’m assuming this is all some kind of elaborate satire, so I’ll leave you with this #brave tweet.

YouTuber Charged With False Report In Alleged Hate Crime Attack

Calum Mcswiggan, who runs a youtube channel for “LGBT+ Lifestyle”, claimed a few days ago via an instagram post that he was the victim of a brutal, possibly homophobia fueled attack.

Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 10.08.00 AM

But the police are telling a different story.

…the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department said in a statement that Mr. McSwiggan had no visible injuries and that it could not substantiate his account. The sheriff’s department said he had been taken into custody after deputies saw him vandalizing a car, and provided a booking photo in which no facial injuries could be seen…[he] was later seen hitting himself with the handle and receiver of a pay phone at the jail and was taken to a hospital…

Mcswiggan claims on his facebook page that he did not lie, he WAS attacked.

I have spent my whole adult life campaigning for LGBT+ equality and did not take this attack lightly. I can not say for 100% that this was because I was gay but I can’t think of any other justification for this random attack…Many people are trying to discredit my story but …[j]ust because there were no visible marks on my face does not mean I was not attacked. Being accused of being a liar and being called a disgrace to the LGBT+ community, a community I’ve dedicated my life to, is more painful than any hate crime could ever be.

He has since been charged with “a misdemeanor count of false report of a criminal offense”.
