Stephen Colbert grilling Oliver Stone about Putin is excruciating to watch

TwitterFacebook

It shouldn’t be surprising in this current political climate that Oliver Stone’s four-part Showtime series about Russia’s leader, Vladimir Putin, hasn’t had the warmest of receptions.

Stephen Colbert is more known for his quips, but a meeting with Stone on The Late Show on Monday proved too irresistible for the host. Colbert asked the director if he was “cosying up” to what some would call a dictator.

“You know, you have to be polite because this was a two-year deal, and it was four times, and I was with him numerous times,” Stone explained.

Colbert admittedly hadn’t watched the series yet, but asked Stone what would surprise him about Putin when watching it. Read more…

Kid owns Icee-chugging contest, is owned by brain freeze

TwitterFacebook

Nothing says summer like baseball, very cold drinks and mind-numbing brain freeze.

A young sports fan experienced all three at a Memphis Redbirds minor league baseball game on Sunday, where he participated in a Icee-chugging contest. 

Determined to win, this kid powered through his slushie, only to face the unfortunate consequence: an out-of-control brain freeze. 

Our man was not going to be denied in the Icee Chugging Contest. No matter the cost.

Oh cool, cats are into fidget spinners now too

TwitterFacebook

Time to ban fidget spinners from the cats, too, I guess.

A video of a cat being absolutely mesmerized by a fidget spinner was uploaded to Reddit by user hopefulpenguin, and if this doesn’t finally prove that the toys are here to stay I don’t know what will. As we all know, cats do not participate in trends, so you can expect to see fidget spinners for the next 5 to 10 years.

Good or bad, the reality of this world is that if you are not in on the fidget spinner craze, you are truly one of the last living creatures to holdout. Read more…

Man comes across massive injured great white in shallow waters

TwitterFacebook

When coming upon a 14-foot great white shark in shallow waters, the universal response is to turn to a friend and say, as calmly as possible, “That’s a f*cking white shark, dude. Holy shit.”

Dale Pearson and a friend saw a figure struggling in the shallow waters near their homes in Baja California, Mexico. Thinking it would be a whale or a hammerhead shark, the two men trudged out to help the animal. That’s when they realized that it wasn’t a whale, but a large great white that had been injured by a boat propellor.

The two men got within a few yards of the shark as it bled, working to free itself from the shallows. Read more…
