Let’s admit what’s already common knowledge: most webcams stink. They’re boring, poor quality, and just a waste of everyone’s time. After all, even “reality tv” is scripted, so why do I need a webcam from the top of a bridge?
… but these webcams? They are delightfully bizarre. You can peer straight into people’s bedrooms, drive strangers insane or just check out what fuzzy, adorable animals are doing at 3:45am. It’s totally up to you, weirdo.

Sometimes we hear about children who look like their parents and we may see somewhat of a family resemblance. Every once in a while, however, the resemblance is so striking that it actually takes us by surprise. That is the case with Julia Roberts, who used to enjoy being one of the most popular movie stars on the planet. She won awards for her acting and she played in some of the biggest blockbusters that were out during the time.
Like many actors who were very famous at one time, she has now practically disappeared off the scene. We rarely ever hear anything about her or what she has been doing. She has played in a few movies recently but they don’t rival what she did in the height of her career.
We do hear from her because of her social media profile. It is a rather unique opportunity to interact with celebrities and to follow them through their lives and their career. Roberts doesn’t necessarily post on social media like many of the other celebrities.
For example, she may or may not own the Twitter page with her name and it does have over 500,000 followers. Up until this time, however, she has not posted anything to it.
Plenty of people have been forwarding a meme exposing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell as a hypocrite for wanting to repeal Obamacare while knowing the government paid to treat his polio as a young child, but actor Ron Perlman might have amassed the largest number of retweets, currently just over 23,000, and likes, which tally more than 30,000. Add a retweet by Michael Ian Black, and there’s thousands more.
One you’ve let that sink in, go ahead and let it drain back out, because it’s not true. McConnell has told the story of how he received treatment at a facility founded by Franklin D. Roosevelt, but it was a nonprofit facility that was neither funded by nor operated by the government.
Texas state Sen. Wendy Davis took a victory lap yesterday after (literally) standing strong nearly 11 hours Tuesday for late-term abortion, and she was lauded by politicians and celebrities alike as a hero. On the other side of the spectrum, craft store chain Hobby Lobby has been standing strong for months against the Obamacare mandate that it provide the morning after pill to its employees, facing fines running into the millions of dollars.
The 10th Circuit Court of Appeals in Denver today ruled that Hobby Lobby can proceed with its case against the mandate without being subject to crippling fines in the meantime. The “biblically founded business” based in Oklahoma City, Okla., announced last November that it was facing a fine of $1.3 million a day for not covering Plan B, which is now available over the counter with no age restriction.
Looks like we’re not the only ones wondering what the troubled ex-boxer and convicted rapist is doing at the glamorous awards show tonight. He’s banned from the UK because of his criminal record. But Tinseltown’s got the red carpet rolled out.
I thought I was a huge fan of horror films, but this funny dog has me beat!
According to her mom, Khaleesi the bulldog gets so into scary movies that she feels the need to warn any potential victims when she senses a threat, especially when it comes to children. While she was recently watching a horror flick, her urge to save the characters was so strong that she just couldn’t stop herself from barking at the TV screen.
Watch as Khaleesi freaks out during one particularly creepy scene. I don’t blame you at all, girl.
I mean, we’ve all been around that person in the theater during a scary movie who won’t shut up. We feel you, Khaleesi.
