Joe Biden Finally Makes It Official: He’s Running For President In 2020 – Perez Hilton

Well, we knew this was probably coming sooner or later.. Joe Biden just made things official, and most of America woke up on Thursday morning to the news: he’ll be running for President in 2020. Biden, who has run for President several times before in his decades-long political career, has great name recognition from a life spent serving the country — and, of course, from his notable recent tenure as Vice President under Barack Obama. The 76-year-old announced the campaign run in a slick four-minute video posted to his YouTube channel (above), delivering a message of equality and opportunity for all and blatantly going after the alt-right and the Republicans over events like the Charlottesville, Virginia unrest that has occurred during Donald Trump‘s time …

Whats Known About the SpaceX Crew Dragon Accident

During a series of engine tests of SpaceX's Dragon spacecraft this past Saturday, the vehicle experienced what the company has characterized as an "anomaly." Based upon an unauthorized leaked video of the accident, the company was counting down toward a firing of the Dragon's SuperDraco thrusters when the vehicle exploded. SpaceX has not validated the video, but it is consistent with verbal accounts of the failure that have been shared with Ars. After the accident, large dramatic clouds of orange smoke billowed above Landing Zone 1, where SpaceX conducted Saturday's engine tests. According to one source, the orange plumes were the result of between one and two tons of nitrogen tetroxide—the oxidizer used by Dragon's SuperDraco engines—burning at the location. …

Jussie Smollett’s Brother Pens Op-Ed, Claims ‘Empire’ Star Is Telling The Truth & Has Night Terrors – Perez Hilton

Jussie Smollett is the victim of the perfect storm of an out-of-control media and a social media firestorm, according to his older brother, Jojo Smollett. The older Smollett, in a new op-ed piece for BET, suggests that his younger brother, the embattled Empire star, is suffering “profound” emotional issues Jojo’s op-ed covers quite a bit of ground, going after the entertainment news media as well as the social media world, while explaining why he believes the 36-year old is innocent and being unfairly railroaded by the Chicago Police Department and prosecutors in the Windy City. It’s certainly a call to back up Jussie from an interested and biased third party, but the op-ed still makes for an interesting read; as you can see …

Weed Helped Save My Mental Health, So Why Is There Such A Stigma? Betches

Okay, story time: I used to work as a front desk girl for a popular “boutique” spinning studio. Not gonna name names because you’ve clearly figured it out already, and I lasted a month there. The place prided itself on being super open-minded and all about getting in touch with yourself, overcoming challenges, and following your soul.  Once, we played an icebreaker game where we went around the room, said our name, the studio we worked at, and something we do to relax. Every. Single. Person. said alcohol is their way to unwind, along with watching a TV show or, of course, working out. I was last, and I said, “taking an edible and tanning.” The CPR woman looked like she …

Rattlesnake Fang Found In Ancient Poop Was Probably Eaten During Indigenous Ritual Thousands Of Years Ago

An analysis of an ancient human coprolite (a fancy word for human feces) found that whoever dropped trow 1,500 years ago likely ate a rattlesnake whole – and lived to poop about it later. The fossilized poo was first discovered in the late 1960s at an archaeological excavation of a rock shelter in the Lower Pecos region of Texas named Conejo Shelter. For the last 12,000 to 14,000 years, humans have occupied the shelter and the presence of their poo proves it. Archaeologists at the time recovered around 1,000 presumed human coprolites from just this one shelter, indicating it was probably once used as a latrine. Flash-forward to present day, when researchers at Texas A&M University reanalyzed the coprolite samples.  …

Trump Really Said ‘I’m F**ked’!?! Pee Tape, Impeachment, & More MAJOR Mueller Report Findings! – Perez Hilton

Yeah, yeah, we know. It seems like the type of thing we’d draw coming out of Donald Trump‘s mouth. But according to the Mueller Report, which was finally released on Thursday, this is really what the President of the United States said. When he found out Robert Mueller had been appointed to investigate Russian efforts to influence the 2016 election and any obstruction of justice committed to cover it up, Trump reportedly “slumped back in his chair” and said: “‘Oh my God. This is terrible. This is the end of my Presidency. I’m f**ked.’” As it turns out the report hasn’t ended his presidency. Video: Will Mayor Pete Be Able To Do So In 2020?

Hollywood Does BlockchainWith Not-Disastrous Results

You may have heard that bitcoin—excuse me, blockchain—is boring these days. I disagree; the real drama comes after the crash. One recent true story is that of a 30-year-old crypto CEO, (apparently) dead of complications from Crohn’s disease while volunteering at an Indian orphanage, who leaves behind a riddle of false identities, illicit side ventures, and $100 million in missing cryptocurrency. Now there's a movie I’d pay to see. Instead, Hollywood has given us Crypto, a product of headier times, when the bitcoin bubble still held air. Like many bad investments of that era, the movie hitched itself to the trending topic and prayed the trend was upward. Crypto, directed by John Stalberg Jr., had the makings of a blockbuster, …

It’s Saturday, you’re lit, brain perfectly calibrated to toasted, sparking your joy, blowing smoke rings so on point it feels criminal not to share on your Instagram story. But something stops you from posting. And it probably sounds like the voice of your D.A.R.E. teacher yelling about how posting pictures of pot online can get you arrested and ruin your career. “Even if you just post one picture, it comes back,” said Anjela, who is very much not a D.A.R.E. teacher.

‘Guava Island’ Collaborators Discuss Film’s Parallels To Nipsey Hussle’s Death

The 55-minute film takes place on a tropical island that is meant to be a paradise but instead serves as a land for the overworked where exports and capitalism trump joy.

In the Mediterranean, US aircraft carrier operations serve as floating American diplomacy

(CNN)With Russia increasingly deploying forces on NATO’s doorstep, the United States has started its own show of force in the Mediterranean Sea. A typical carrier strike group includes an aircraft carrier, a guided-missile cruiser, two guided-missile destroyers, an attack submarine and a supply ship for logistical support. That coordination is extremely important as US military dominance in the world is being increasingly challenged by resurgent powers like Russia and China, said Rear Adm. John Wade, the commander of Carrier Strike Group 12, which includes the USS Abraham Lincoln. “Our senior leadership has mandated that our Navy become more lethal and more tactically proficient. It’s very important in the era of competition that we are in.” In the Black Sea, the …

So Much Is Wrong With Khlo Kardashian’s New Instagram Post Betches

This is a PSA: Khloé Kardashian, for the love of God, will you (and your entire family for that matter) put down the poorly made editing apps? I already did an entire article on Kardashian Photoshop fails alone, and honestly, it took every ounce of self-restraint to not make that article 500 entries long. The Kardashians are just so bad at Photoshop! And I don’t even get why?? Number one, they are one of the most gorgeous families in America, and they should really be happy with the way they look. Two, they have (I assume) full-time teams of makeup artists, stylists, trainers, and plastic surgeons at their beck and call to deal with their dissatisfaction—they should not have to take …
