Texting While Walking?
now lands you a ticket in Fort Lee, NJ.
Text addicts beware — a New Jersey town is mounting a crackdown on texting while walking.
Police in Fort Lee, N.J., have issued more than 117 jaywalking tickets in the last month and a half, and cops say texting pedestrians are some of the biggest offenders, according to Philadelphia TV station WTXF.
“It’s a big distraction. Pedestrians aren’t watching where they’re going. They’re not aware,” police chief Thomas Ripoli told WTXF.
Ripoli said 20 people have been hit by cars so far this year in the Bergen County town — many because they were too absorbed texting or talking on their phones to keep track of traffic around them.
Fort Lee police started by handing out pamphlets warning against “dangerous” walking during a two-week grace period, then started whacking offenders with $85 fines.
“Even kids,” Ripoli told The Record. “We just hope their parents would make them pay the fine. ”

Music sets everyone free. Everyone loves music. At least everyone that falls in love. If someone hates music...the moment they meet someone they are crazy about, whatever song is playing at the first place they meet, that person will love music after that moment. True story...
"...of course there are a lot of media inaccuracies surrounding this past couple of weeks, especially the 'She's my Beyonce' quote. I would never compare anyone to my friend's wife,"
For some reason I found this quote from Kanye West funny. For one, he has a very valid point and two, the media is so fuckin' stupid sometimes. They make shit out of their ass for a story. But, at the same time...it's just funny that pop culture goes where it goes these days. Anything can be asked, and anything can happen.

Ok, what?! Teenagers in California were recently busted doing the unthinkable: getting drunk on hand sanitizer. This new trend is dangerous, and has sent many teens to the hospital with alcohol poisoning.
As ABC News reports, hand sanitizer is the latest in a string of household products used to induce intoxication, and it has public health officials worried. A few squirts of hand sanitizer could equal a couple of shots of hard liquor. California has a reported 2,600 cases since 2010, and it’s becoming a national issue.
Helen Arbogast, an injury prevention coordinator at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, told ABC News that, “Since 2009 we can see on YouTube it’s in all regions of the country. We see it in the South, in the Midwest, in the East.” Liquid hand sanitizer contains roughly 65 percent ethanol—the main ingredient in beer, wine and spirits—making it 120-proof. Compared to vodka, which is 80-proof, you can pretty much tell how serious a problem this holds. Keep reading this article
