Macrobiotic Monday to you all, my little gingersnaps. I'll have you know that food is no longer leaving my body without permission, though on a scale from 1-10, my energy level is still a -3. Thankfully I'm able to blog from my Macbook Pro while laying on the couch, so here we are.
In the news, a woman scammed some Nigerian scammers. She was recruited by them as an agent on a car-sales website. She believed the Nigerians to be honest. However, instead of keeping the 8% profits for herself like she was supposed to, she kept 100% of the profits. Cops were tipped off by the ripped off car buyers who were able to trace the transactions back to her.
Is it sad that I think the most tragic part is that she wasn't aware the people she was scamming were Nigerian scammers?
Woman Scams Nigerian Scammers
Aussie was supposed to keep 8% of scam, kept 100%
(Newser) – Most of us just want to throttle the scam artists that line our spam boxes with get-rich-quick schemes and pleas for help with million-dollar bank transfers, but Sarah Jane Cochrane-Ramsey went one better: She scammed the cons who were using her in their scam, reports the Courier-Mail. Seems the 23-year-old Australian was hired as an "agent" by what she thought were honest Nigerians, who were in fact running a scam on a car-sales website.In theory, Cochrane-Ramsey was supposed to collect proceeds from car buyers and funnel the money through an Australian bank account, keeping 8% of the proceeds for herself. In reality, she grabbed slightly more—100%—to the tune of $33,350. Cops were tipped by ripped-off car buyers, and traced the account to Cochrane-Ramsey. She pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated fraud last week.
Kevin Federline (back-up dancer who married Britney Spears and now lives off of her money so he doesn't have to work) said he wants his boys to be grounded by having them flipping burgers at McDonalds at age 16. He says he worked at a car wash and a pizza place and things like that made him who he is. In other words, he wants them to knock up some rich chicks so they can live the rest of their lives without having to get a real job.
Kevin Federline Wants Sons Sean, Jayden to Work at McDonald's
If Kevin Federline has his way, sons Sean Preston and Jayden James will be flipping burgers when they turn 16.
Speaking to Australia's Herald Sun Saturday, the 33-year-old backup dancer (once wed to Britney Spears) revealed how he plans to keep his boys grounded.
"I'll have them working at Micky D's," the Excess Baggage reality star said. "That's how we had to do it! I worked at a car wash. I worked at a pizza place. Things like that made me."
Explained Federline: "I can be in this business now and I'm still the same person I am back then, because I know what I want out of life and how to treat people."
In celebrity news, this weekend during The Lorax premiere, Zac Efron pulled something out of his pocket to hand to someone when a condom (still in its shiny wrapper) fell out and landed on the red carpet. He then quickly picked it up and had to regain his composure before being picture ready on the red carpet.
Just who is he expecting to hook up with during the premiere? The Lorax?
WHOOPS! Zac Efron’s Condom Falls Out Of His Pocket — But Who Was It For?
File this one under “WHOOPS!”: While on the
red orange carpet for The Lorax premiere in Los Angeles over the weekend, former Disney star turned wannabe bad boy Zac Efron found himself in a precarious and highly embarrassing situation on the red carpet. As he posed for photographers, he caught a glance of someone familiar — his publicist, maybe? — and reached into his pocket to hand her something. As he pulled his hand from the pocket of his jeans, something that looked a lot like a condom fell from his pocket. Efron’s cat-like quickness allowed him to snatch the errant jimmy hat from the carpet before any photographers were able to get the moment captured on film, but our friends over at The Superficial just stumbled on some videotape of the incident and Efron’s sheepish reaction:
WHOOPS, indeed! Well, at least we know that Zac Efron is practicing safe sex. However, what we DON’T know is WHO he was planning on having sex with in a bathroom stall of Universal Studios while hundreds of elementary school aged children watched his new 3D movie. So, TheFABLife has put together the following list of suspects in gallery form, along with our guesstimated odds of who Zac was hitting it (and then quitting it) with.
Are you looking for a way to access your computer and have more freedom than your laptop can provide? Well hook up a computer to your TV monitor, slap on a pair of these jeans and you're all set. The jeans have sewn-on keyboard, mouse and speakers and connect to a computer via bluetooth connection. So, as long as you don't mind the idea of typing away on your junk... in fact you might enjoy that more than using a laptop. Of course depending on your level of excitability, the location of some of the letters may change. *wiggles eyebrows* Now if only these came in a raspberry-scented version.
Dutch design duo Nieuwe Heren have created a pair of jeans that are ideal for computer addicts.
The ‘Beauty and the Geek’ jeans are embedded with a keyboard, a wireless mouse and speakers, and connects to the computer with wireless bluetooth connection.
It makes it “possible to move freely behind your computer and still be in control”, Nieuwe Heren wrote on its website.
“It combines two totally different worlds, the world of fashion and the world of technology.”

Ben Franklin was living abroad as a US ambassador to France around 1781. During this time he wrote an essay all about flatulence. He famously named it “Fart Proudly.”
He wrote the essay as a response to a call for scientific papers from the Royal Academy of Brussels. Franklin felt they were too uptight. The essay discusses how different foods affect the odor of farts. He suggested that scientists develop something to eat with food to make fart smell more pleasant.
