Jennifer Aniston admits to joining Mile High Club, possibly in threesome

Us WeeklyJennifer Aniston revealed she’s a card-carrying member of the Mile High Club on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show that aired on Wednesday, November 30.
During a game of “Never Have I Ever” with the host, the Friends star confessed to hooking up on an airplane — and then some.

Aniston, 48, hesitated briefly before lifting up her “I have” paddle when Ellen DeGeneres asked if she’d “joined the Mile High Club.”

“You with me on that one?” she asked the comedian, who admitted: “On that one, I’m with you.”
But it didn’t end there, as the pair hilariously took it a few steps further. “Never have I ever with the pilot?” asked DeGeneres.

“Oh, God,” Aniston replied, before holding up her “‘I have” paddle again — and keeping it up as the host continued, “And the co-pilot. And the flight attendant.”

Gives new meaning to “cockpit,” am I right?

This has never, ever appealed to me because planes are disgusting. And doing it with both the pilot and the co-pilot seems just a little dangerous. But maybe that’s the main reason they invented autopilot.

Of course, Jen has done OK for herself and it very well could have been a private jet, where this kind of thing is much easier, I’m guessing.

If this is your kind of thing, there are actually entire airlines just for people who want to have sex in the sky. I learn something new every day writing these posts.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Former NFL running back Joe McKnight was shot and killed on Thursday in New Orleans during a road rage incident.

Jefferson Parish Sheriff Newell Normand said in a news conference McKnight was standing outside his car when he was fatally shot by Ronald Gasser.

“The only thing we know right now, everything else is conjecture, is that Mr. Gasser did in fact shoot Mr. McKnight,” Normand said, adding: “We will release additional details when we get through with the interviews.”

Normand said Gasser was in custody and was being questioned. A number of witnesses are also being questioned.

McKnight played three seasons for the Jets and one for the Chiefs. He played in the Canadian Football League this season.

He is the second ex-NFL player to die in New Orleans this year in a road rage incident. In April, former Saints player Will Smith was shot after an altercation with another driver.

McKnight’s former teams and teammates expressed their condolences on Twitter.

Man reports possible murder thinking jellyfish is loose breast implant

12.01.16 at 2:00 pm ET
By   |   Comments

BBCA jellyfish was handed to police in Australia under the mistaken belief it was a breast implant and possible evidence of a crime.

A concerned man submitted the “bagged and tagged circular object” to officers in Maroochydore, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast late last week.

He feared it might have indicated a drowning or possibly a murder.

The police station said in a statement that they had soon confirmed the find was not sinister.

“Officers at Maroochydore Station were all hands on deck when, much to their initial alarm, a concerned citizen attended the counter to report a possible homicide,” said the statement.

“Investigations revealed what police suspected… the item was indeed a jellyfish.”

Colin Sparkes, from Surf Life Saving Queensland, said the discovery was most likely a blubber jellyfish.

He said the species was commonly found in Queensland waters and its sting was irritating, but not dangerous.

“[The] tentacles have been knocked off by wave action or eaten by fish,” he said of the one handed to police.

It doesn’t say where this was found but I’m guessing, and hoping, it was the beach.

And if someone with breast implants had drowned, I’m assuming the implants wouldn’t just float away.

This sounds like a guy who watches a lot of crime shows and is on the lookout for possible murders to solve. However, he did in fact find a dead body because it sounds like the jellyfish was murdered.

You can see here Brittney and Rhonda’s systematic thought process as they whisper back and forth to each other before ultimately coming up with gynecologist.

Of course, it could have been professional gynecologist, to differentiate from all those amateur gynecologists out there.

Rhonda and Britt took one for the women’s rights team on this one. I applaud them.

And Pat Sajak being the pro that he is is not shocked at all with his “I knew that was coming.” The guy has seen everything at this point.

AROUND THE WEB:

— Von Miller’s sex tape co-star, Elizabeth Ruiz, is speaking out about why she taped her love-making session with the Broncos linebacker.

Ruiz told TMZ she is not out to extort Miller but wanted to keep the tape for herself.

“I used it to pleasure myself,” Ruiz said.

Ruiz claims everything she did with Miller, including making the video, “was consensual.”

“He had recorded clips on his phone as well,” Ruiz said. “….He never asked me to delete it. Not once.”

Ruiz also said she never wanted to ask Miller for money.

“I never, never, never, never went up to Von and asked for $2.5 million or for a dollar,” Ruiz said. It wasn’t until his lawyers made an offer that her lawyers counter-offered with an amount.

Canadian police use Nickelback to punish drunk drivers

11.30.16 at 3:12 pm ET
By   |   Comments

Washington PostAuthorities in Canada are willing to do what it takes to crack down on drunken driving during the holiday season.

That includes threatening people with Nickelback.

In a Facebook post this month, police in Kensington, a town in Prince Edward Island, encouraged those attending social gatherings to make sure they had a designated driver, or write down the number for a taxi company. Make arrangements to stay at the home of a friend, they suggested in the post, whatever you need to do to be safe.

Then, the agency explained what might happen if you didn’t.

“Now, with that being said, know that the Kensington Police Service will be out for the remainder of year looking for those dumb enough to feel they can drink and drive,” the post read. “And when we catch you, and we will catch you, on top of a hefty fine, a criminal charge and a years driving suspension we will also provide you with a bonus gift of playing the offices copy of Nickelback in the cruiser on the way to jail.”

To recap: this police department keeps an unopened Nickelback CASSETTE TAPE in their office.

This punishment, while very clever, sparked outrage with some people on Facebook who like Nickelback and take offense to this tactic.


Then the comments on this post got so extreme someone from America actually threatened to NOT move to Canada:

Food Network announces ‘Iron Chef’ reboot ‘Iron Chef Gauntlet’

Finally. #IronChefGauntlet

A photo posted by Alton Brown (@altonbrown) on

Variety — Food Network is heading back to Kitchen Stadium. The cabler plans to reboot its “Iron Chef America” franchise with a fresh incarnation dubbed “Iron Chef Gauntlet.”

The cooking competition will be hosted once again by Food Network regular Alton Brown, who gained fame through his “color commentary” reporting on “Iron Chef.” “Gauntlet” is expected to begin production early next year for a second-quarter premiere. Details of the new format are thin other than it promises to offer some new twists on the cooking-showdown format.

The original “Iron Chef” aired for 12 seasons on Food Network and helped burnish the credentials of such foodie TV stars as Bobby Flay, Masaharu Morimoto, Michael Symon, Marc Forgione, Geoffrey Zakarian and Alex Guarnaschelli. The competition pits one notable chef each season to face a series of challengers in a bid earn or retain the title of “Iron Chef.”

This is excellent news.

This show, in its “Iron Chef America” format, has everything. It has food, incredible drama, sweating chefs, INSTANT REPLAY, an area called Kitchen Stadium, a chairman who does a karate chop and says “In the words of my uncle, ‘allez cuisine!'” to start the competition, and of course, Alton Brown doing running commentary.

Not only does Brown do color commentary during the competitions, he talks to the chefs while they’re cooking under extreme conditions. He asks them questions and sometimes they yell at him to stop bothering them.

It is near-perfect television.

This is why I love “Iron Chef.” Here is the Battle of the Melon:

— After more than a year away from golf, Tiger Woods is making his return to the game at the Hero World Challenge in the Bahamas on Thursday.

Woods spoke with reporters on Tuesday and opened up about his feelings heading into the tournament. He said he struggled with the future of his career and whether or not he would ever play again while recovering from back surgeries.

“Yeah, there was a lot of trepidation and times where I did think of that, because it was realistic,” Woods said. “Not being able to get out of bed, not being able to move, how can I expect to come out here and swing a golf club at 120 miles an hour and be ballistic when I can’t even get out of bed?”

Woods said recovering from this back injury was different than recovering from past knee problems.

“When I had my knee redone and it was completely blown, I knew it was nine months [of recovery], but I knew I could come back from it. It’s not nerve damage,” Woods said. “When you’re dealing with a spine, when you’re dealing with nerves, it’s a totally different deal. There’s a lot of guys who have had injuries like that and have come back and done well and have won golf tournaments, but each individual spinal injury is different and has its own little personality.”

Woods also spoke about his sudden withdrawal from the Safeway Classic in October, saying “a few things happened” surrounding that decision.

“One, the Ryder Cup [for which he served as a vice captain] helped a lot in the sense that I got a chance to be out there with the guys and see it and feel it and experience it,” Woods said. “Two, it hurt me by not being able to practice for a week. I knew that I could play Safeway with a few shots, and I’ve played with less and I’ve won golf tournaments hitting with less shots, but I had to have everything come together.”

Woods also said he didn’t know the course well enough and “didn’t feel right about it.”

Woods will tee off at noon on Thursday in the opening round of the World Challenge.

Spa amusement park where people wear only towels set to open in Japan

11.29.16 at 4:58 pm ET

TIMEIn what might be the best idea of 2016, Japan has announced plans to open a spa amusement park in Beppu, which is famous for its hot springs.

Thanks to a now-viral video that depicts a hypothetical “spamusement” park complete with bubble bath roller coasters and steam room trolley rides, a spa amusement park is now actually in the works. In addition to showing many potential relaxing activities, the clip also featured Beppu’s mayor Yasuhiro Nagano saying that he’ll work to make this fantastical idea a reality if the video hit one million views.

Now, nearly a week later, the video has garnered almost two million views. Furthermore, it looks like Mayor Nagano will be making good on his promise — according to RocketNews24, the mayor’s office issued a press release that confirmed that plans for the amusement park are underway.

This is a good idea in theory but I can already see some problems with it in this video. Actually, it has disaster written all over it.

There are people walking around in only towels. There are rides where people sit in a tub of water in only towels. How often will they change that water?

PEOPLE ARE RIDING A CAROUSEL WEARING NOTHING BUT TOWELS.

The only thing I was thinking during that entire video: germs.

This spamusement park looks way more stressful than relaxing.

People there aren’t going to wear shoes. It looks like the bare feet and the towels and the water are the only things that make this different from a regular amusement park.

So, no thank you, this looks like a nightmare.

Bryant basketball player thinks his team is winning, dribbles out clock to lose by 1

11.29.16 at 1:06 pm ET
By   |   Comments

CBS SportsThanks to a temporary lapse in thinking, Brown took home a 91-90 win over Bryant on Monday night.

With 3.8 seconds left on the clock, Brown’s Tavon Blackmon scored to put his team ahead by one.

Now, 3.8 seconds is plenty of time to run the length of the floor and get off a decent shot.

But that’s only if you’re aware of the score, which freshman guard Ikenna Ndugba apparently was not.

After the go-ahead score for Brown, Ndugba took the inbound pass and, thinking his team had secured the win, dribbled to the ball to half-court to run out the clock. As he runs down the floor, even his teammates are calling for the ball to try and attempt a last-second shot, but instead, Ndugba chucked the ball in the air as time expired, trotting down the floor to try and catch a high-five from his teammate before he realized what he had done.

Oh man.

Ndugba only finds out his team lost when he goes to high-five his teammate at the end and gets completely and rightfully rejected because he just killed any chance his team had to win the game. He was even so sure of the win he threw the ball behind him instead of shooting toward the basket to make any kind of attempt. Sad!

Bryant basketball coach Tim O’Shea posted this video of Ndugba on Facebook in June and captioned it, “Our freshman point guard Ikenna Ndguba set a Bryant University record today with a recorded vertical jump of 42.5″ – to put that in perspective that would have been the third best at this year’s NBA Draft combine. He is going to be a special player..”

I’m sure Ndugba is a good player but NBA scouts will of course see this viral video. So once he learns to keep track of the score of the game, it looks like Ndugba should be all set for the draft.
