So, apparently bath salts cause people to exhibit zombie-like behavior. What the what?! Over the weekend, Americans worried the zombie apocalypse had arrived when reports of a naked man eating the face of another man hit the internet. Then, when we realized it was in Florida, that changed things just a little bit. (Admit it, if that story had come out of Kansas or Idaho or even New Hampshire, you would have freaked out even more, right? Of course you would have.)
In the end, though, the location did not make the details any less horrific and creepifying. The face-eating man was ultimately shot and killed by a Miami policeman. Seriously, if you haven’t heard this story, read all the scary details here. The poor victim of the attack, a homeless man, is still alive.
But bath salts?!? NPR reports the theory is that bath salts are to blame. The story quotes an ABC News report that says this case has some similarities to others happening in Florida. The bath salts, in drug form, were recently banned in the state, but they cause the body’s core temperature to rise and cause people to become violent with “superhuman strength.”
This week’s poll question focuses on this bath salts development.
This guy just won Season 11 of American Idol.
American Idol just wrapped up its 11th season and some are saying that fatigue has set in. Even in the numbers, it can’t be denied. The show’s ratings have declined. And even longtime fans have admitted to an indifferent attitude towards this season.
At the same time, other stations are taking the talent-show format and tweaking it for new shows, like The Voice and The X Factor. So, this week, we ask, what should Fox do with American Idol? Continue it another year? Give it the axe? Where do you stand?
Drums in last year's Kid Zone area of Riverfest
Though this weekend will be filled with baklava and gyros at the Greek Food Festival, next weekend is Riverfest, and if you haven’t seen the lineup of musical acts, it’s here.
But there’s more than one reason to head to the annual festival on the waterfront. Maybe it’s the food. Maybe you’re going for the family-friendly activities. Or maybe you’re just down for seeing some hairy dudes in cut-off jeans eating turkey legs. Whatever tickles your fancy, that’s the subject of this week’s poll.
The “Hawg Wild” motorcycle that former University of Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino crashed on that fateful day in April is now for sale on a site called copart.com. See the listing here. The story has piqued the curiosity of many on the internet who’d like to take a gander at the bike, which is being sold as-is, and has some visible defects and front-end damage.
The bike is a 2007 Harley Davidson, and as of this posting, the bidding was up to $5,300. The odometer shows 1,032 miles.
For this week’s question, we’re wondering, if you purchased the Hawg Wild, what would you do with it?
Anne Hathaway as Catwoman in Dark Knight Rises... not to sway your vote or anything.
It’s time for summer blockbuster movie season. What? So soon? That’s right. Memorial Day weekend was the starting gun for the summer movie sprint, but in the past few years that line has slowly been pushed to earlier in the year. In the early spring, but The Hunger Games was putting up blockbuster numbers. And The Avengers arrives this weekend so the idea of a blockbuster movie actually opening during the summer is becoming fuzzy. So, in light of that, this week, we ask you which 2012 summer blockbuster you’re anticipating the most.
