  • Bulls don't care if you wrote a book. They will gore you.

Did You Mistakenly Sign a $15 Minimum Wage Referendum and Want to Withdraw Your Signature?: You can! Here's how.

Aussteigen!: Following surveillance backlash, Germany wants top U.S. spy out of the country.

Tragedy in Texas: Four children and two adults found fatally shot at a house in the Houston suburb of Spring.

Oscar Perez Giron's Fatal Confrontation With Police at the Sodo Light Rail Station: Watch newly-released surveillance video here.

Another Day, Another Israeli Airstrike: "A new wave of Israeli airstrikes battered areas of Gaza early Thursday, continuing the deadly onslaught aimed at stopping militant rocket fire into Israel," reports ABC News.

Meanwhile in Washington State: 400 firefighters are battling the Mills Canyon fire.

Ignoring a Humanitarian Crisis?: Rick Perry blasts Obama for not visiting Texas to address the flood of undocumented children from Central America.

Finally, happy birthday to Neil Tennant, frontman for electropop geniuses the Pet Shop Boys.

Reminds me of when Roger in The Mothers-In-Law accidentally injured Desi Arnaz playing the bullfighter known as "He Who Has Never Been Gored".

Why was Tatiana Maslany snubbed yet again? Orphan Black is one of the best shows in a long time. She definitely deserves at least the nomination

that's 7 shot, 6 dead because 1 man couldn't handle with his emotions.

the 2nd amendment marches on, distributing freedom anywhere, to anyone, at any time.

I really enjoy this song. I think it would be funny if this song played in the tourism ad and showed a guy with a salad bowl on his head as he smokes a blunt and does fun things.

Another day, another Israeli AND Hamas airstrike. About half of Israel is taking refuge in bomb shelters. Next up: Gaza ground invasion.

How not to be gored by a bull:
Step one: Don't run with the bulls.

Can I get a book deal? I promise to stick to my advice and not get gored.

@3 and thankfully more weren't killed because that incredible child had the presence of mind after being shot in the head to play dead and then call police.

huh? Orange is the New Black is supposed to be a comedy?

I guess I totally misread that show.

Special Advisory to Chase Bank Employees

Another Chase Bank individual, and the third individual connected to their Global Networking Operations, allegedly killed his wife and then himself.…

Now, if you haven't figured it out by now, J.P. Morgan Chase is the premier crime organization in America, can you dig it?

Word up, doods, in case you know anyone at a sensitive position within your bank, such as Global Networking Operations, a proprietary HFT trading desk, or a derivatives desk, you might want to suggest to them that they cultivate an inside contact at the Department of Justice so that in case their name is mentioned on one of their Letters of Interest, submitted to the senior executives prior to calling them forward as a witness, they can be tipped off before an accident team is dispatched to silence them.

Happy birthday Neil! True story, up until Elysium, most PSB albums mirrored what was going on in my life at their release.
