Losing an iPhone is the absolute worst. The inconvenience, the expense… Just terrible. So, when a good samaritan gets in touch to let you know she’s found your phone, the appropriate response ought to be gratitude. Right? One Virginia woman would tell you that this is not always the case. Last week while shopping at her local 7-Eleven, the woman, 53, picked up an iPhone that had fallen on the floor. Do-gooder that she is, the woman proceeded to contact the phone’s owners (a man and a woman) and arranged to meet them at a neutral location to make the exchange. Everyone showed up as planned, and the transaction was completed without a hitch. They even gave her a monetary reward. So WHY IN GOD’S NAME did they rush the woman from behind, while she was walking away, throw her to the ground, kick her, and reclaim their cash? WEAK! They are still looking for the a-holes.
We have an update to the story about Tranny Miss Universe……the transgender beauty contestant who was initially disqualified from taking part in the Miss Universe Canada pageant because she wasn’t born female. Tanny Miss Universe Jenna Talackova didn’t win the pageant…..but did take home the title of Miss Congeniality! She made it into the top 12, and shared the title of Miss Congeniality with three other women in voting by the contestants. Jenna was kicked out of the competition in March after having been chosen as one of 65 finalists. After some controversy, officials of the competition, agreed to let her compete. The Miss Universe pageant also later said it would change its rules to allow transgender women to take part in all of its competitions starting in 2013. SEE MORE ABOUT THIS HERE!

A team of psychologists at Loyola University in New Orleans just released the results of a study, and found people who buy organic foods tended to be BIGGER A-HOLES in other aspects of life. They were less likely to do things like volunteer, hold doors open, more likely to be rude, and had less of a moral objection to stories about lawyers trolling for clients in the ER, or people having sex with their cousins. The researchers think it’s because people who buy organic feel like they’ve already done something GOOD . . . so they can justify acting less morally later. It’s the same effect as someone who works out, then feels like that makes it alright for them to eat a giant piece of cake.
