Yet only four days after passing the physical exam, he was found dead in his room with a phone in his hand. Lightning had struck a cord outside and shot out of the speaker, into the earpiece and into Jason’s ear. We like to think that he took some solace in knowing that he went out exactly how ‘80s …

You know what happens when you start murdering prostitutes in the same town and area as Jack The Ripper, only 70 years later? As Jack The Stripper found out, you get a stupid fucking nickname based on your predecessor, for one. That’s not to say he wasn’t a chilling character. In fact, in some ways The Stripster was a much scarier killer than his more famous and better-monikered counterpart: Not only did he kill more people (at least six, perhaps as many as eight) and operated for six years …

If you’re a Democrat, and a fan of our balloon-loving 43rd president, you’ve probably ignored most of the claims about his sexual improprieties. But if you think the allegations against Mr. Trump have merit, it’s pretty hard to argue that Clinton’s friendship with Epstein doesn’t look as shady as a goddamn peach orchard. And if you still think ol’ Slick Willy is morally in the clear, watch this interview with Juanita Broaddrick. It sure as hell doesn’t seem like she’s lying.<p>And, as Buzzfeed …

“I have a mango tree … This tree is currently saving my life, but might also get me killed soon

“I have a mango tree … This tree is currently saving my life, but might also get me killed soon.”<p>That’s Busteq. He’s a middle-class Venezuelan who lives in a nice neighborhood. In short, he’s a lot like many of you, except <i>his</i> country (which has more oil than any other nation on earth) saw its currency go tits-up when gas got super cheap last year. This, combined with almost comical levels of government corruption, has brought their civilization to the brink of collapse.<p>We’re barely exaggerating …
