In another (un)surprising incident of celebrities being assholes, 50 Cent got caught making fun of an Autistic Teen worker at an airport.

http://www.msn.com/en-us/music/news/50-cent-posts-video-harassing-autistic-teen-working-in-airport-family-lawyers-up/ar-BBsAFwc?form=PRHPTP&ocid=HPCOMMDHP15

Sadly the father's reaction of wanting 1 Million from the Rapper makes him look like just as much an asshole. Just ask for a formal apology....a thousand dollars at most if you really want money.

But a Million? for real?

He we linked the same thing, well personally i see the 1mil as more of "fuck you money" its hurt you money its not really the quantity. Heck most of that would probably go to the lawyer.

But yah Fiti is a major duchebag, the whole video is actually kind of annoying to watch and honestly feels like MR T should run in at some point punch him in the face and go "And remember kids dont bully"

Yup - that's the sort of thing that judges put down for 'punitive damages'.  It's money to make someone think long and hard about doing something like that again.  A thousand dollars to someone whose net worth is in the millions is - well - pocket change.

I would have paid real money to see that.

Wildfire is raging pretty bad in Canada, right around Fort McMurray in the province of Alberta. Over 50,000 people have been evacuated from the area. :/

The pictures of the wildfire look pretty bad--here's hoping those in the affected area will be safe. :(

One of the things often overlooked when it comes to claims for damages that make the news ist, that these cases often start with very high sums, but sometimes get reduced during court proceedings, if they are not settled outside of court for undisclosed sums. What most people remember afterwards are the very high sums cases start out with and don't take into account that the final settlement may be for a much lower amount. Liebeck vs. McDonalds is a good example. The judge reduced the punitive damages the jury awarded, then the case got settled out of court (for an undisclosed sum). But what most people will remember about the case is the jury verdict of 2.7 million in punitive damages no matter how far that sum may be from the actual settlement.

Why am I not surprised? The hatred that some are whipping up against transpeople leads to this shit, thankfully no one was harmed directly but dammit it makes me sooo angry.

A man purposefully injected HIV into his 11month old son, in order to kill the child. 24 years later that boy grew into a strong man and everyday he makes the most of life.

I think prison is too good for a man who would try to use aids to kill their own child. I would have had him tied to a cinder block, had his junk cut off and then tossed him into a river, in winter, at the coldest time of night.

I hope that shit burns in the deepest, hottest part of hell.

There are way simpler ways to kill a baby and make it look like an accident - it's not like he tried very hard to cover his tracks from this 'accident' anyways.

No, it loks like he wanted the child and the mother to suffer. Well now he is the one suffering in prison. I hope the inmates find out what he did, and make him everyone's bitch.

I think it would be more fitting to sink him neck deep in a school of piranhas, after inflicting just enough injury to let the little buggers find him.  Maybe with a couple of these thrown in for good measure. (Link is to Wikipedia)

That's beyond horrific. My god. How can one person be so evil.

My heart aches for all that he and his mother have gone through. I just... I can't form words.

Almost makes me wish Judge Dredd was real, a monster like that doesn't deserve to live, not when he has ruined the lives of two others so much.

Its like they are actively trying to be stupid and incompetent.

The linked article sounds damning, but read what Christie actually wrote before casting judgment:

Equal pay for men and wimen is already a thing, the often mouthed "wage gap" is simply a difference in hours spent working, because people dont know how averages and statistics work. 

I put it in spoilers because i dislike how the site instantly links youtube vids

Yeah its good that he did this and at least took it like a man, but it feels of him only being 'sorry' because he got caught.

New jellyfish discovered near the Marianas Trench Marine National Monument!

I thought the jellyfish looked rather interesting and pretty.  :-)
