A measure working its way through the Michigan Legislature would make the state the nation’s 45th to allow residents to carry stun guns as a means of self-defense. Wisconsin became the 44th on Nov. 1.
Stun guns, which shoot prongs carrying an electrical charge to temporarily incapacitate the person they strike, have been blamed in lawsuits for some deaths, but proponents insist they are far less dangerous than handguns.
“You could use it when you could use a gun, and you must have all the training that goes into a concealed pistol license,” said state Sen. Rick Jones, a Republican from west Michigan, who introduced the legislation. “I think it’s just common sense that someone would rather use electricity than a gun when they can.”
If only kids had been allowed to carry tasers at Penn State & Syracuse.

Arlington High School has suspended all school dances because of an increasing number of students drinking alcohol and dancing inappropriately at the school functions.
Mary Villano, the interim principal at the school, sent a newsletter to parents Monday saying the moratorium on dances will be in place until school administrators can address their growing concerns about the behavior.
“It’s at the point where we’re worried something tragic will happen,” Villano said in telephone interview with the Globe Tuesday.
At the same time, Villano said school officials also believe the dancing of students has become too sexual, including dances in which students are “grinding” on each other.
Villano said if school officials close their eyes to the inappropriate dancing then students may think it’s acceptable, and the school has decided it’s time to address it.
Haters gonna hate. Arlington HS should just have Jenna Marbles do a training on “the face” for all AHS girls.
Yahoo Daily News 2011-11-28:
A local gun club in Scottsdale, Arizona is hosting an event for they would not be allowed to legally own. Even toddlers are permitted to hold high-powered firearms in the photos. Organizers say the event has so far attracted hundreds of participants. The advertises the event as “a one-of-a-kind opportunity to be photographed next to Santa while against a backdrop of a stunning $80,000 Garwood mini-gun and SGC’s coolest belt fed machine guns including the M60, M249 and M240.” The photos are $5 for club members and $10 for non-members.
I’ll bet that these kids are going to get EVERYTHING they asked for, considering they told Santa their Christmas list at gunpoint!
Enjoy this clip from Bad Santa to get you in the holiday spirit. Totally NSFW or school.

I was reading through Boston’s own Barstool Sports blog (extremely funny site) and came across this picture. Basically David Portnoy (El Pres) gives his ‘prep school face’ to anyone who, “talks shit to him.” El Pres, I appreciate that us preps have given you a face to demean your inferiors!
A letter from Justin Timberlake
To all my family, friends and fans –
I’m writing this out to all of you after attending an event that turned out to be one of the most moving evenings I’ve ever had…
I had the honor and privilege last night of attending The Basic School Instructor Battalion 236th Marine Corps Birthday Ball at the Greater Richmond Convention Center with Corporal Kelsey DeSantis…

First off, it’s pretty boss of Justin Timberlake to go to a formal dinner with a random girl… Never mind a Marine Corporal. Everyone should support our armed forces as they protect what we take for granted.
The internet is buzzing with people who have had enough of this publicity whore with her fake marriage and her stupid sisters. Check out the Facebook group with 16,000+ likes HERE.
I support the movement to rid the media of this family. Let’s just revisit what makes Kim Kardashian famous:
1) Her dad helped to get O.J. Simpson acquitted
2) She was in a sex tape with Ray-J
3) She has enough junk to fill 15 Louis Vuitton trunks
Boycott Kim and her whole family, especially that freak step-father of hers.
