Americanism 101 - "Hot Chicks With Douchebags"

This is probably something Europeans wouldn't do - devote a site to "pictures of hot chicks with total and complete douchebags. With commentary."

But it's fun that some Americans do it, so check out "Hot Chicks With Douchebags". And they have a book too!

Some samples:

"Is Kareem here encroaching into stage one ‘baggery? Or does he exceed the height limit for douchebags? Will he and his woman be forever doomed to 68′ing one another (she does him, and he owes her one) due to incompatible sexual modularities?

Did I run this photo on the flimsiest of excuses just to showcase naughty-sweet Greta, who looks like a young Margot Kidder done right?"

"In a perfect world, this douchenozzle would have just drowned in the pool. These girls would have fished him out, not to help, but to make a mockery of his hipsterdouche beard and shaved, pallid torso.

In a perfect world, Gigglescarf would swipe his wallet, while Raven LeVamp kneed him in his cold, shrunken genitals. They would leave his limp, wet body on the terrace and head over here for a repast of cupcakes, Doritos and Manhattans, perhaps followed by belly pooching, and more of Raven’s Eye Of Coitus demonstrations.

But this is not a perfect world.

This is where douchebags feel the supple young boobies of poolside hotties press against them. This is the world where buffoonery and arrogance are rewarded with positive hott interaction.

This is why we must mock.

For the buffoons bed with the hotts tonight as the lone coyote howls over the hills and the tasty snack cakes lie in state in cellophane coffins."

"Somewhere in this gaggle of spring break sorority woo hotties I’ve hidden their pet Self Esteem project, Mort, who they hope they can rehabilitate by dressing like a wanskta.

Look closely. Can you stop gouging your eyes long enough to find him?"

Bonus pics:

The site goes years back, and these are just pics from the last weeks. So check it out, and enjoy their archives with thousands of douchebags with hot chicks. And as mentioned their book might be cool too...

P.S. I know I used "Americanism" in the wrong context, but I like how it looks anyway.


Smoking causes damages to every system in your body - not "just" lung diseases and oral cancer

This excerpt about the wide variety of damages from smoking is from the book "100 Things You're Not Supposed To Know", by author Russ Kick. It's an interesting little book, filled with secrets and facts that aren't very well known — but pretty shocking when you learn about them.

The fact that smoking causes lung disease and oral cancer isn't exactly news, and only tobacco industry executives would express (feigned) shock at being told. But cigarettes can lead to a whole slew of problems involving every system of your tar-filled body, and most people aren't aware of this.

The American Council on Science and Health's book "Cigarettes: What The Warning Label Doesn't Tell You" is the first comprehensive look at the medical evidence of all types of harm triggered by smoking. Referencing over 450 articles from medical journals and reviewed by 45 experts — mainly medical doctors and PhDs — if this book doesn't convince you to quit, nothing will

Here are some of the things that cancer sticks do to your body:

1) Besides cancers of the head, neck and lungs, cigarettes are especially connected to cancers of the bladder, kidney, pancreas, and cervix. Newer evidence is adding leukemia and colorectal cancer to the list. Recent studies have also found at least a doubling of risk among smokers for cancers of the vulva and penis, as well as an eight-fold risk of anal cancer for men and a nine-fold risk for women.

2) Smokers are at least two to three times more likely to develop the heartbreak of psoriasis. Even if that doesn't happen, they'll look old before their time. The American Council tells us, "Smokers in their 40s have facial wrinkles similar to those of nonsmokers in their 60s."

3) Smokers require more anesthesia for surgery, and they recover much more slowly. In fact, wounds of all kinds take longer to heal for smokers.  
4) Puffing helps to weaken bones, soft tissue, and spinal discs, causing all kinds of musculo-skeletal pain, more broken bones and ruptured discs, and longer healing time. "A non-smoker's leg heals an average of 80 percent faster than a smoker's broken leg."

5) Smoking is heavily related to osteoporosis, the loss of bone mass, which results in brittle bones and more breaks.

6) Cigarettes interfere with your ability to have kids. "The fertility rates of women who smoke are about 30 percent lower than those of nonsmokers." If you're an idiot who continues to smoke while you're expecting — even in this day and age, some people, including stars Catherine Zeta Jones and Courtney Love, do this — you increase the risks of miscarriage, stillbirth, premature birth, low birth weight, underdevelopment, and cleft pallet. If your child is able to survive outside the womb, it will have a heavily elevated risk of crib death (SIDS), allergies, and intellectual impairment.

7) Smoking also does a serious number on sperm, resulting in more deformed cells, less ability of them to swim, smaller loads, and a drastic decrease in overall number of the little fellas. The larger population of misshapen sperm probably increases the risk of miscarriages and birth defects, so even if mommy doesn't smoke, daddy could still cause problems. What's more, because smoking hurts blood flow, male smokers are at least twice as likely to be unable to get it up.

8) Besides shutting down blood flow to the little head, smoking interferes with the blood going to the big head in both sexes. This causes one quarter of all strokes. It also makes these strokes more likely to occur earlier in life and more likely to be fatal.

9) "Depression — whether viewed as a trait, a symptom or a diagnosable disorder — is over-represented among smokers." Unfortunately, it's unclear how the two are related. Does smoking cause depression, or does depression lead to smoking? Or, most likely, do the two feed on each other in a vicious cycle?

10) "Smokers experience sudden hearing loss an average of 16 years earlier than do never smokers."  
11) Smokers and former smokers have an increased risk of developing cataracts, abnormal eye movements, inflammation of the optic nerve, permanent blindness from lack of blood flow, and the most severe form of macular degeneration.

12) Lighting up increases plaque, gum disease, and tooth loss.

13) It also makes it likelier that you'll develop diabetes, stomach ulcers, colon polyps, and Crohn's disease.

14) Smoking trashes the immune system in myriad ways, with the overall result being that you're more susceptible to disease and allergies.

15) And let's not forget that second-hand smoke has horrible effects on the estimated 42 percent of toddlers and infants who are forced to inhale it in their homes:
"According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), children's 'passive smoking,' as it is called, results in hundreds of thousands of cases of bronchitis, pneumonia, ear infections, and worsened asthma. Worse yet, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that 702 children younger than one year die each year as a result of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS), worsened asthma and serious respiratory infections.


Very funny satire from Seth Meyers (SNL) at the White House Correspondents' Dinner 2011 - plus Stephen Colbert as a bonus

If you like satire and good humour, for example the Comedy Central roasts, you will love Seth Meyers' speech at the White House Correspondents' Dinner 2011, which was held last Saturday in Washington.

Our man from Saturday Night Live and its "Weekend Update" simply shredded President Obama, Donald Trump and the entire press corps with his very rough satire. Click the picture to see it on YouTube:


President Obama did a speech before Seth Meyers, and he was actually pretty funny. Click the image to check it out:

Also check out Stephen Colbert tormenting George W. Bush at the dinner from 2006. Amazingly intelligent satire, and I think it takes a certain amount of courage to talk so much shit about the most powerful man in the world. Especially when he's sitting just a few meters from you and has the authority to have you killed. Click the pic:
