It’s an undeniable fact that Charlize Theron is gorgeous, but she kind of sneaks under the radar sometimes. Whenever these beautiful people lists come up she never seems to float to the top but she absolutely should. Short hair, long hair, no hair. She’s just got that face that makes you forget where the hell you are. As far as hosting SNL, this is her second time, with the first being way back in the year 2000. She’s a pro, so I can’t see her flopping, and with her there promoting A Million Ways To Die in the West, I’m hoping for a cameo or two from some of her co stars. Seth Macfarlane? NPH? Liam Neeson? Maybe even her new lover Sean Penn? Possiblities are endless. The Black Keys doing the singing is just a major bonus. I can’t wait for Saturday night.
“If it’s too good to be true, it probably is,” goes the old saying. Apparently that goes double for “free” vacations.
Just ask an unnamed couple from Australia, who believed they’d won an all-expenses-paid trip to Canada — complete with free luggage — but unwittingly became drug mules instead. When they returned from a seven-day vacation in the Great White North on Oct. 13, the couple, a 72-year-old man and 64-year-old woman, approached customs officials in Perth, Australia, over concerns they had with their new bags.
Australian Federal Police examined the luggage and found 3.5 kilograms (7.7 pounds) of methamphetamine stashed in the lining of each bag, worth an estimated total of $7 million dollars. Perth Now reports the couple had apparently been scammed by “AusCan Tours,” a fake Canadian travel agency that lured them into entering an online competition. They were contacted by the agency afterward with the good news that the pair had won a free vacation. – HuffPost
Well, you know what they say…don’t accept a free vacation to Canada unless you’re willing to peddle 7.7 pounds of meth across international boarders. “Too good to be true” is not the adage I would have used for this situation. A free trip to Canada, you say? As soon as I read this I knew these people must have been either elderly or from somewhere other than North America. Oh, look at that, this couple is both! Because there is no way someone gets that jazzed up about visiting Canada, unless they are from another country….or are senior citizens.
PS- I’ve been to Canada once. It was on a cruise, and my buddies and I got off the boat to go to a strip club. We found out it was closed (at 11:00am) and got back on the boat and never returned.
The big story today is marijuana is about to become that much closer to full legality. Not sure if that’s a real phrase but it is now. A 100 million dollar marijuana company is about to form in Washington state and I am going to buy stock pre-immediately (I’m killing it with new phrases today). Right now its being called ‘Big Marijuana’ which is an obvious spin off of ‘Big Tobacco’ (which is probably not the best marketing choice) but they plan to change it’s name as the company comes to fruition.
And the mastermind behind all this? A guy named Jamen Shively, no idea how to say that but I’m going to with Jammin’ because that’s both awesome and, when referred to the Bob Marley song, very appropriate. Oh and by the way he’s been endorsed by Vicente Fox, another awesome name, who happens to be an ex-Coca Cola exec; but then he got bored of heading up one of the worlds biggest Fortune 500 companies and decided to retire and become the president of Mexico. An obvious next step.
I’ve never been so sure that a company is going to experience so much success. Marijuana + Jamen + 100 mil. How can you go wrong? Except maybe your product is still mostly illegal. But who’s counting. I’m excited!
