Rachel P.: 6 Bizarre Wardrobe Life Hacks That Science Says Work (Cracked)
Unless you're an overworked stripper or an Internet comedy writer, you probably wear clothing every day. You think you know it pretty well: shirts to cover your shameful torso, pants to contain your pendulous genitalia, shoes for kicking. But clothing can do a whole lot more than that. And some of it is pretty amazing stuff, like ...
"Hooray for Captain Spaulding" is a song, originally from the 1928 Marx Brothers stage musical Animal Crackers and the 1930 film version. It later became well known as the theme song for the Groucho Marx television show You Bet Your Life (1950-1961), and was generally played when he was introduced on various talk shows and the like.

Check this out folks…Rob Zombie will direct a new biopic about the final years of legendary comedian Groucho Marx, based on Steve Stoliar's memoir, Raised Eyebrows, which chronicled his time as Marx's personal secretary and archivist. Hmmm…Erin Fleming, remember her? After fighting Arthur Marx for years after Groucho's death for control of his estate, she lost, went nuts, and then blew her brains out. Ha Ha Ha, real funny!

Lois Of Oregon replied:
Oh my beloved Groucho! What monstrosity has usurped your dear title of Captain Spaulding? Seriously, what the fuck IS that thing? Oh and I screwed up the joke last night. Pa said "There's a one eyed cat walking UP the road" and Ma said "No, it's a two eyed cat walking DOWN the road". No more gin for me!

The executive director of the largest police union in the country is threatening a "surprise" for Quentin Tarantino after the director drew its ire for comments about police brutality.
Jim Pasco of the Fraternal Order of Police told the Hollywood Reporter on Thursday that the union has something planned for Tarantino and that "the element of the surprise is the most important element."
Tarantino, who didn't immediately return messages on Pasco's pledge, has defended his remarks and insisted he's not "anti-police." Appearing on MSBNC on Wednesday, Tarantino said that police, by feuding with him, are obscuring "the fact that the citizenry has lost trust in (police)."
"Anybody who acknowledges that there's a problem in law enforcement in this country right now is considered by law enforcement part of the problem - whether that be me, whether that be (New York Mayor) Bill de Blasio, whether that be President Barack Obama," said Tarantino.
Irish women are tweeting details of their periods to Prime Minister Enda Kenny to help publicise a campaign to repeal restrictive abortion laws.
Abortion is a divisive issue in Ireland where, after large street protests from both sides of the debate, a complete ban was only lifted in 2013 when terminations were allowed if a mother's life was in danger.
When Ireland chose to become the first country to adopt gay marriage in a referendum this year, marking a major shift in what was once a strongly Catholic and socially conservative society, calls for abortion law reform gained momentum.
"Since we know how much the Irish state cares about our reproductive parts... I think it's only fair that the women of Ireland let our leader @EndaKennyTD know the full details of our menstrual cycle," comedian Grainne Maguire said in a tweet this week that kicked off a Twitter campaign that has gone viral.
Dozens of other women joined in, tweeting details of their menstrual cycle, with some criticising Kenny for not responding.
Inuit throatsingers are performing in Halifax to raise money for young people learning music in Nunavut.
The two artists will share a style of music that captivated many Canadians Wednesday during Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's swearing-in ceremony at Rideau Hall in Ottawa.
Throatsingers Colleen Nakashuk and Avery Keenainak, who are from Pangnirtung, Nunavut, will perform at the Pearl Theatre in Lunenburg Saturday. They shared a song with CBC Radio's Mainstreet on Friday.
Funds raised at the benefit concert will go towards Music for the Future, a Nova Scotia-based program that offers fiddling lessons to Inuit children in four Baffin Island communities.

The nearly built but never finished Fontainebleau casino-hotel high-rise is getting covered up to spruce up the view on the Las Vegas Strip.
A Clark County commissioner turned a relatively routine request for an off-site improvement bond extension into an opportunity to compel the property's owner to cover up part of the unsightly construction site that has been visible for several years, rising 63-stories above the Strip.
Construction on the 3,900-room property stopped in 2009. A year later, billionaire investor Carl Icahn bought the $2.9 billion development out of bankruptcy for $150 million.
Other under-construction properties along the Strip have agreed to cover up unsightliness, including The Venetian, which covered up a tower that was never finished, and Boyd Gaming Corp., which sold its Echelon project to the Genting Group before it needed to cover up that site.
Mormon church officials have issued a rule change that says members in same-sex marriages can be kicked out and their children must wait until they're 18 and disavow homosexual relationships to be baptized.
The revisions triggered a wave of anger, confusion and sadness for a growing faction of LGBT-supportive Mormons who were buoyed in recent years by church leaders' calls for more compassion and understanding for LGBT members.
"It feels like they are extending an olive branch and hitting you with it," said Wendy Montgomery, who is Mormon and has a 17-year-old gay son. "It's like this emotional whiplash."
Montgomery said Friday the news left her son sobbing and forced her and her husband to consider leaving a religion they've belonged to for generations. The couple has been trying desperately to stay in the church despite a harsh reception to their son coming out.
Montgomery also echoed a response shared by many on social media: She can somewhat understand the hard stance on same-sex marriage, but she can't comprehend singling out gay couple's children.

Monsanto Co on Friday denied that plantings of its genetically modified soybeans have impacted bees, led to deforestation or caused damage to the honey production industry in two Mexican states.
Mexico's Supreme Court on Wednesday blocked a move to allow the planting of genetically modified soya seeds in the southern Mexican states of Campeche and Yucatan, arguing that indigenous communities that had fought the move should be consulted before it was approved.
Honey producers in the two states as well as the neighboring state of Quintana Roo had protested against the genetically modified soybean permits, arguing they created a contamination risks for their produce.
Monsanto, which was on the court docket's list of interested parties in the case, said in a statement Wednesday it respected the court's decision and would wait to see the full text of the ruling.
The court said on Wednesday that the five justices had voted unanimously to grant an injunction against Mexico's agriculture ministry SAGARPA, which had given permission for the plantings. The full text of the decision is still pending.

A number of rare and historic artifacts appear to have been unearthed after record rainfall in South Carolina last month, including pottery, boats and a possible mammoth skeleton, archaeologists said on Thursday.
So far, the state has received 20 reports of items that washed up or were uncovered after storms that caused widespread flooding in October, state archaeologist Jonathan Leader said.
Licensed hobby divers, who must share their finds with the state, already have reported finding a dugout canoe possibly crafted by early European settlers or Native Americans.
There were also some barges and a report of a possible skeleton of a mammoth, an extinct animal that resembled a woolly elephant, according to the SCIAA.
Other natural disasters such as droughts and hurricanes have uncovered historic and pre-historic sites, archaeologists said, but not to the extent they see resulting from the recent floods.
