What is Wrong with People?

A meteorologist on Global News News Hour Plus in Canada took to the airwaves last Thursday to discuss a hate letter.

Kristi Gordon is pregnant, and got a nastygram about the way she looks on the news.

Calling her "gross," the viewer wrote further: “Your front end looks like the Hindenburg and your rear-end looks like a brick sh—house. We now turn off Global."

Actually, she's gotten a few, and she decided to talk about it on the air with the news co-anchors.

The male anchor didn't think they should give the letter any attention. "Haters gonna hate," he said, "as some rapper may have said."

The female anchor corrected him immediately, which is the funniest put-down I've seen in a long while.

Check out the whole thing... Sparks some interesting discussion.

Arnold's Human Side

Arnold Schwarzenegger has a new movie coming out called Maggie.

It's a zombie flick, but more than that.

The advance buzz on it is pretty good, and no one seems happier about it than Arnold himself.

Check out the post to his Facebook page late last week...

I'm really proud of my new film, Maggie. This is the most human zombie film you’ve ever seen, and it’s the most human...

Wait a Minute, What?

Furious 7 - the seventh installment in the Fast & Furious franchise - is set to open up in theaters in a couple of weeks.

The hype for it has been huge.

Naturally, everyone thinks the "7" in the title refers to it being the "seventh" film.

Right?

Wrong. According to the director, James Wan, says he wanted to actually spell out the "seven" in the title, as an homage to Seven Samurai.

It's about seven warriors, I guess, and not about counting how many films there've been.

Who knew?

And This is Why I Don't Go on Rollercoasters...

Opening day for the Coney Island Cyclone, one of the world's most historic wooden rollercoasters, didn't go so well for the first riders of the season.

At the top of its first hill, just before the first drop, the coaster stopped dead in its tracks.

Riders were stranded, and had to be walked down by emergency personnel.

Like rollercoasters aren't already scary enough, now this happens?

But what do you want to bet that most of them will climb back aboard as soon as the ride's running again?

Behind the Times?

President Obama sat down last week to talk with David Simon, the creator of The Wire, the critically-acclaimed TV show.

The idea was to discuss what Simon observed about crime in the inner city that drove him to create the show.

The guy's a former cop, so it's probably a valuable chat.

But those observations are over a dozen years old. The Wire ran between 2002 and 2008.

Relevant? Or just an opportunity for the First Fan to talk to the guy who created one of his favorite shows?

What do you think?

Unintentional Photo Bomb

Kim Kardashian must have been having an off day.

There was a camera pointed her way, and she didn't manage to strike a pose.

Instead, it sort of looks like she's picking her toes Or perhaps grabbing for her pocketbook.

Kanye, on the other side, looks so very Kanye-ish. And ironically, he's the one showing sideboob in this picture, not his wife.

Go figure...

Got a Drone and a Lot of Spare Time?

It's amazing how inventive some folks can be.

Take Oliver C... He's a YouTuber, probably from France, who designs flying objects with the help of drones.

His latest creation is an imperial star destroyer from Star Wars.

All you need is some foam, some aluminum and a remote-control drone, and you too could be the king of the geeks in your neighborhood...

Pranking for Lenovo

Ashton Kutcher's roots are in pranks. You of course remember his Punk'd on MTV.

And he's also the pitchman for Lenovo computers.

So why not take the two and put them together Down Under?

Great idea. And that's exactly what he did.

Watch what happens when Ashton goes undercover in an Australian department store, pitching the new Lenovo tablets to unsuspecting customers...
