Canadian Police Punish Drunk Drivers By Forcing Them To Listen To Nickelback

dui2

(PCM) You almost have to feel bad for vocalist Chad Kroger and the boys in Nickelback. They are constantly getting ridiculed and no one seems to understand their overall popularity. It now seems that police on Canada’s Prince Edward Island have discovered a new way to punish drunk drivers in addition to fines, license suspension and criminal charges. They will also force individuals who are busted for drunk driving to endure listening to the police departments in-house Nickelback CD collection. 

Oh, the horror, but really actually pretty funny! The police department made a post via Facebook that said that anyone who was “dumb enough to feel they could drink and drive” would also be forced to listen to endless Nickelback while they are contained in police custody. The department went on to say “we figure if you are foolish enough to get behind the wheel after drinking then a little Chad Kroeger and the boys is the perfect gift for you.” You can view the Facebook posting below:

Definitely a creative solution to battle the on-going problem of drunk driving, especially around the holiday season. Although others may feel that having to endure endless Nickelback songs may literally “drive” someone to drink even more!  Sorry, Nickelback, at least it’s for a good cause!

NASA Is On The Hunt For A New Way To Help Astronauts Poop In Space

astronaut

(PCM) In the very near future, NASA has plans to keep astronauts confined in their spacesuits for approximately six days at a time for exploration purposes. The astronauts on the mission would not have access to either the space shuttle or the space station to be able to relieve themselves, so therefore their only option would be wearing an adult diaper for the duration of the mission. 

We can definitely say that six days in an adult diaper does not sound very pleasant and NASA agrees, which is why they are in search of an innovative idea to assist the astronauts with pooping in space. They are currently hosting a competition aptly called “The Space Poop Challenge” as a way to crowdsource a new an innovative way for astronauts to relieve themselves in space. 

NASA is accepting submissions via the website HeroX in hopes to discover an “in-suit waste management system” that could work for “up to 144 hours” to get rid of “fecal, urine, and/or menstrual waste.” If your idea is chosen you could win up to $30,000. Now, that’s definitely some fun holiday spending money! Put on your thinking caps and get to work!

Concert Review: Evanescence At The Fillmore In Silver Spring, Maryland

(PCM) It has been four very long years since Evanescence has graced the stage and catching their recent show at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, Maryland was every bit worth the wait and more. It was a reunion that fans have been patiently awaiting for quite a long time and the band sounded as tight and well-rehearsed as ever! They were absolutely on fire!

When the lights went down and the band hit the stage the audience was instantly captivated from beginning to end. Vocalist Amy Lee is a true force to be reckoned with in the rock world and her performance was spot-on throughout the entire show. The band showed amazing energy and it was wonderful to watch both their stellar musicianship and engaging interactions with the crowd.

We literally got chills listening to the entire room belt out each and every word to Evanescence’s multitude of hits including “Going Under”, “Lithium”, “Breathe No More” and an especially heart-wrenching and soulful performance of “My Immortal”. Amy Lee is a vocal powerhouse and she left us absolutely breathless. The band played a 19-song set list and added a fantastic cover of Michael Jackson’s “Dirty Diana” as an encore that definitely left us all hungry for more!

Let’s hope Evanescence will whet our appetites sooner rather than later as we don’t think we can stand to wait another four years to once again witness such a phenomenal band. Kudos Evanescence for putting on one heck of an amazing rock show!

Santa Is Now Leaving Apology Notes For Kids Who Didn’t Get What They Wanted For Christmas

santa-letter

(PCM) It is no secret that both Hatchimals and Nintendo NES Classic Editions are at the very top of every child’s wish list this Christmas. Of course, it is also no secret that neither of these highly sought after toys can be found at any retail locations both brick and mortar or online, in fact both are selling for hundreds and even thousands of dollars on websites such as Ebay and Amazon which many parents certainly can’t afford.

Rather than watch their children endure the sadness of not discovering a Hatchimal or NES Classic Edition under the tree, many parents are turning to apology letters from Santa (yes, they are a real thing) to help ease pain and help explain just why these treasured presents did not end up under the tree. One letter in particular claims that the reason the child is not receiving a Hatchimal for Christmas is due to the fact that both Santa and Mrs. Claus are waiting for the eggs to be laid. It goes on to say that once the egg has been laid, sometime in January, an elf will deliver the Hatchimal to the child’s home.

Another option is a letter that explains why the child will not be receiving a Hatchimal at all saying that they will be no longer given out as presents and they are forming a colony of Hatchimals at the North Pole to help combat extinction and protect species. Hey, if the kids buy it … go for it! However, could Santa apology letters be taking things a bit too far. Many parents feel that children should not receive every item that is marked on their Christmas lists, as it could certainly lead to the children developing unrealistic expectations later in life.

When we were young and we didn’t get the toys we asked for (I’m looking at you Cabbage Patch Dolls, Easy Bake Ovens, and Tickle Me Elmos) we just moved on, played with the gifts we did receive and all was good in the world. Parents, it’s definitely time to rip off the band-aid and teach these children about the way the real world works. We can’t get what we want all time!

Arthur’s Angry Fist Meme! The Reaction Meme You Should Definitely Know!

arthur-fist-meme

(PCM) Unless you are hiding under a rock on the internet you have most likely come across the hilarious Arthur’s Angry Fist meme popping up somewhere along your various social media feeds. It is often used by people as a visual accompaniment to situations in life that have made them angry or frustrated.

The image shows cartoon character Arthur with a clenched fist and is taken from an episode of the cartoon series titled “Arthur’s Big Hit” during the scene where Arthur punches his younger sister D.W. for breaking his Bell X-1 model airplane. It was definitely a rather dark episode of the cartoon series and even the show’s creators, while appreciative of all the online buzz, are disappointed that some of the meme’s are made in poor taste. Definitely not what they were going for with the Arthur cartoon series. 

The screen capture image of Arthur’s fist in that scene was first posted on Twitter back in July of 2016 when user @AlmostJT joking said “This is just a pic of Arthur’s fist but idk [I don’t know]  how I feel that’s it’s just so relatable. So many emotions in one fist.” The original tweet has since been deleted,however the meme has been shared countless times. 

Of course the meme began being shared on Reddit as a visual was for people to describe their frustrations with various social and world situations. One of the first mentions of the Arthur’s Angry Fist meme on Reddit occurred when someone used the image to describe their anger at someone saying Harambe was “just a gorilla”.  The meme has proven to have both staying power and longevity, as it is still be consistently shared  across the net at any given time. The Arthur’s Angry Fist meme touches on both our obsession with all things nostalgic and the ability to visually express our emotions in a cyber world.
