Forgivable? by Aricka Mccauley,posted Apr 10 2012 10:05PM
Faking terminal cancer in order to get a free dream wedding?! I can't think of much (if anything) worse.
Jessica Vega managed to use her supposed illness to get family, friends, and community members to give her a wedding dress, wedding rings, flowers for the reception, and even a honeymoon to Aruba... without paying a dime!
Now the craziest part - her then fiance left her once he found out she lied about having terminal cancer - BUT REUNITED WITH HER and even had another child! He said she's a good mother and ultimately, that's all that matters. (Crazy much?)
People are getting SERIOUS about preparing for the end of the world, whether it be from solar flares, nuclear attack, viral pandemics, or just the whole 2012 theory. If this is you - it could be time to buy your Doomsday Shelter.
A man in Kansas is building a number of fallout shelters in an abandoned missle silo - for a pretty steep price.
They're luxury condos located 174 feet below the Kansas prairie featuring concrete walls 9 feet thick, designed to withstand a nuclear blast. The going rate, at this point, is $2 million for a floor of this underground silo.
Current owners are even enjoying them as vacation homes! (Must be nice) If you had the cash, would you buy one of these... JUST TO BE SAFE?
I think the whole idea sounds really stupid, but in reality, if I had the money, I'd probably be guilty of grabbing one.
It's called Girls Around Me. Even the name of it is a bit alarming. The app uses locating systems to find what girls (or guys) are located near you at any given moment based on Foursquare check-ins.
From there, you can link to a nearby person's public Facebook page to learn information including their full name, age, birthday, school, and anything else they've posted on their profile. Fortunately, the app has been removed from the app store... for now.
Great for maybe a social gathering for finding people who share your common interests, but it so very easily goes past that into the creepy territory.
If you want to get to know someone... why not try TALKING instead of creeping on a phone app?
