    North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un is so powerful that he can control nature, the country’s government-run newspaper Rodong Sinmun claims. In an article detailing Kim Jong Un’s recent visit to Mt. Paektu over the weekend, the newspaper claims that he stopped a blizzard and brought about “fine weather” as he “ascended” hiking "through thick snow" to the 9,000-foot peak of the mountain. “When Kim Jong Un ascended to the top of it, going through thick snow, it showed fine weather unprecedented in the blizzard of December winter, exposing its majestic figure,” the newspaper reads. The newspaper calls Kim Jong...

    In light of all the recent 'allegations', a kind of water cooler discussion started at my workplace among the men in particular. How far beyond politics is this going to go? Today, we have a young woman here who for the 2nd day in a row, is wearing VERY provocative clothing. We're talking "no-man-is-looking-at-her-face" type clothing. If continued unchecked, this woman will probably find herself propositioned or worse somewhere around the work place. Being a not so young man, this is not the first time I've seen women dressing/behaving like this is the work place, and yes, there are dress...

    I have not been able to get YouTube to work since Sunday. I have posted this question on Facebook, and some say they can get YT on their phones, others have said they have gotten the site to work after rebooting by disconnecting their modems for about 30 seconds. None of these have worked for me. The site, isitdownrightnow.com has been pinging the site several times a day, apparently without success. It has this statement posted: We have tried pinging Youtube website using our server and the website returned the above results. If youtube.com is down for us too there...

    “Body-positive” activists are upset that reality TV star Louise Thompson titled her upcoming book “Body Positive,” claiming the actress is stealing language that’s actually meant to describe obesity-acceptance. According to the Bookseller, “Body Positive” details Thompson’s transformation from “an anxiety-ridden party girl, battling with mental health and an unhealthy relationship with eating” to a woman who found “happiness, calm, direction and self-love” through better relationships with fitness and food. Immediately after The Bookseller tweeted about the book, people took offense to the title: Made in Chelsea's @LouiseAThompson is publishing a recipe and fitness book with @YellowKiteBooks: https://t.co/saVFS88Baj pic.twitter.com/D76O3JNM7l — The...

    The Los Angeles chapter of Black Lives Matter is calling for people to resist “white capitalism” and President Trump by only buying from black businesses during the holiday season. On Sunday, the allegedly official Black Lives Matter-LA Twitter account posted that they are “dreaming of a #BlackXmas” that involves people withholding their “dollars from White capitalism” and, instead, spending that money in the black community: We’re dreaming of a #BlackXmas...where folks withhold dollars from White capitalism and use resources to #BuildBlackCommunity. Instead of spending, DONATE to a Black organization as a holiday gift for your loved ones or #BuyBlack. Go...

    Are you a straight man who likes women? Do you kiss and cuddle with your male friends just for funsies? No? Well apparently, you’re the weirdo. Because according to Attitude Magazine, it is totally normal – common, even – for straight men to canoodle with their straight male friends. To the confusion of straight men and people of logic everywhere, Attitude ran a befuddling article entitled: "New Study Finds Straight Men in Bromances Often Kiss and Cuddle." (For those unfamiliar, a "bromance" is a slang term for a close friendship between two heterosexual guys.) Attitude claims:

    Europe’s Muslim population will multiply even if all migration stops permanently, a study has found. On the other hand, high migration sees predictions of some 76 million Muslims dwelling in Europe by 2050. A revealing survey by Pew Research Center, ‘Europe’s Growing Muslim Population’, looks at the future of the 25.8 million Muslims currently residing in European countries. Citing a comprehensive swath of data, it is an attempt to see how the size of Europe’s Muslim population may change in the coming decades, depending on levels of migration. All three scenarios – zero, moderate and high – considered by researchers...

    Faced with the daunting task of turning Bethesda's series of 80-hour, single-player video games into a cooperative board game that could be finished in about two hours, Fantasy Flight board game manager Andrew Fischer and his team sat down and made a list of what they felt was essential to Fallout. "This could be as specific as the SPECIAL stats or as wide and archetypical as making morally ambiguous decisions that have a permanent impact on the world," Fischer said. "We started designing around this skeleton.” Balancing the series' flavor and mechanics with the limitations of how much cardboard could...

    An Edinburgh man who had his feet amputated as a toddler doesn’t like to think of himself as disabled. But after a thief recently cut a chain and stole his scooter — his only way to get to his job — living independently became much more challenging. For most of the past year, Lee Wood drove 15 miles on his gas-powered scooter from Columbus to his job at Ditech Inc. in Edinburgh, where he works as a machine operator. About a month ago, he moved to an apartment in Edinburgh so that he could cut down on his commute, which...
