(NEWSER) – Move over, Karl Rove. Eric Hartsburg could very well claim the title of Most Disappointed Romney Supporter. After all, 10 square inches of his face now bear a Romney-logo tattoo, but in an interview with Politico, the 30-year-old from Indiana says that while he’s “totally disappointed,” he doesn’t regret the money-making move: “I was trying to make politics fun. … I shed blood for this campaign, and I’m glad to know that I did all that I could.” He says he’s weathered a lot of “FUs” since Tuesday, but notes that his 15-year-old son “was all about it.” And while we’re not sure we actually see the logic here, he says he’s hoping the ink will open “some other doors in the entertainment business.”
Rep. Todd Akin, the Republican nominee for Senate in Missouri, doesn’t think abortion in the case of rape is really an issue. That’s because he has it on good authority that women don’t get pregnant from “legitimate rape” anyway.
Wow I had no idea women had a self destruct system for their reproductive system in the case of rape…
I fucking hate people on Twitter sometimes…
No right in fairness I can see where they’re coming from. A lot of people get pity/attraction etc. confused and I’m not gunna lie I feel a bit sorry for him, he’s clearly massively tapped as fuck. Still pretty sure that if America had remotely sensible gun laws this wouldn’t have happened.
…… are you kidding me? If we didn’t have guns he would have just stabbed a ton of people. He’s a psycho who doesn’t deserve a quick death. I wish they would give him brutal hard labor for life but instead he’ll just get lethal injection which is too good for him.
For any girls/women who think he’s “cute”… I wish you were sitting in that theater and see if you’d still say that. Idiots….
As mentioned by the BBC News recently, a 17-year-old girl was visiting her grandmother in Sydney, Australia when she took a picture of a ”large sum of cash” while helping her grandmother count her cash savings at the home. The teenager posted the picture on her Facebook feed around 4 p.m. on Thursday May 24. Approximately seven hours later, two masked men armed with a wooden club and a knife entered the girl’s family home 75 miles away in the town of Bundanoon. Upon entering the family home, the men found the 47-year-old mother of the girl as well as a 58-year-old man and 14-year-old boy, likely her father and brother.
When speaking to the family, the two men wanted to talk to the girl about the sum of money in the picture that was posted on Facebook. After the girl’s mother convinced the two armed men that her daughter no longer lived at the address, they “took a small amount of cash and other personal property before leaving the house” according to the official police statement regarding the incident.
While no one was injured during the robbery, it’s clear that the two men were able to determine the location of the home from information posted on the teenage girl’s Facebook account. It’s also possible that at least one of the two men were friends with the girl on Facebook and were aware of the location of her family’s home.
Also within the official statement, the police reminded the public to be careful of the type of information that’s posted on social networks like Facebook. With the rise in popularity of geotagging photos with location data prior to posting on a social network, Facebook users may want to use groups to limit the amount of sharing among their entire friend’s list and avoid using public posts when publishing personal information or location data.

Hoping for some shiny new Apple gear? Well, just be glad you’re not a teenager in China — Apple products may cost a figurative arm and a leg, but you won’t actually have to give up any body parts to get one. Unfortunately, this wasn’t the case for Wang, a 17-year-old from China who sold one of his kidneys to get his hands on an iPad and iPhone.
Give Wang some credit — at least he sold one the organs he had doubles of. That’s about all you can give him credit for though. Wang’s kidney sold for around $35,000, but he only got around $3,500 — the rest went into the pockets of the five men who conspired with him to sell the kidney. Wang then blew the whole plot when his mom asked him how he managed to buy an iPad and he just straight up told her he bought it with kidney money. Whoops. Moriarty this kid is not.
Seems like it’s time to update the old “Eat your vegetables! There’s starving kids in China who would love your carrots!” chestnut for the 21st century. I can see “No, you can’t have a new phone! There’s kids in China who would sell their organs your iPhone!” becoming a new parental standby.
