    Man, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor have regressed into pre-2008 white males in that SCOTUS picture y’all have up . . .

    There was some pretty wrenching testimony in the George Zimmerman trial too by Rachel Jeantel, the last person to speak to Trayvon Martin alive.

    Dammit Bono, why can’t you wrap your car round a tree. I’m sick of never winning a dead pool, the closest I came was Michael Jackson but someone else died and I lost him, then he copped it.

    Admittedly I pick people I would like to die.

    Aaron Hernandez already has a great start on his prison tattoos. Just google him and check out his images.
