Netflix Knows You’re Sharing Passwords

By |2019-10-18T09:39:05-05:00October 18th, 2019|

Bad news for streamers: You THINK you're getting away with sharing Netflix passwords . . . but you're not. Netflix knows you're doing it, and they will crackdown . . . at some point . . . maybe. This week, a Netflix exec said that they're "monitoring" accounts they believe are being shared . . . and they're looking into, quote, "consumer-friendly ways" of preventing it from happening. It's unclear what that means . . . but it MIGHT just mean that they're weighing whether it's even worth inconveniencing paying customers by trying to chase down people who are trying to [...]

Best Homemade Halloween Display You’ve Ever Seen?

By |2019-10-18T07:58:13-05:00October 18th, 2019|

Yup, driving at night and coming up on this would freak me out. The video has gone viral for the massive homemade Halloween display on the grounds of a farmhouse near Walnut, Illinois, which is about 120 miles this side of Chicago. It's a series of scenes featuring stuffed human dummies that are dressed up. Just about anything you can imagine: Gravediggers, witches, Leatherface, skeletons, zombies, werewolves, Frankenstein . . . and they're all part of smaller scenes. Think witch's coven, public hanging, or an executioner with his guillotine. There's even a fake cemetery, and the gravestones have ironic names like [...]

Live saving moves in Utah! We'll call this Utah state trooper a hero, he pulled an unconscious driver from a car that was stopped on railroad tracks AS the train was approaching. He gets him out ONE SECOND before the engine plows into the car. The driver had a medical issue, which is why the car was stopped. Neither of them was injured by the crash. The squad car's dashcam filmed the whole thing. Check out the amazing life-saving work by Trp.

The Dictionary Adds Chillax and more

By |2019-10-16T07:33:51-05:00October 16th, 2019|

They unleashed the latest mangled English that's now officially on-the-record.  The "Oxford English Dictionary" added a ton of new words to their dictionary, which, basically, validates them as real, which I find annoying. Why aren't things just part of the culture as slang, it doesn't have to be official! chillax (verb). To calm down and relax. nomophobia (noun). Anxiety about not having access to a mobile phone. promposal (noun). An invitation to be someone's date to a school prom, especially one which is elaborately staged, filmed, and made available on social media. whatevs (interjection). Used, typically in response to a question [...]

Work Four 10-Hour Days

By |2019-10-14T07:28:06-05:00October 14th, 2019|

Here's a sign the era of the Monday through Friday, 9-to-5 job is going to be history.  The four-day workweek is becoming a SERIOUS trend. According to a new study, 27% of companies now offer their employees the option of working four 10-hour days instead of five eight-hour days. You're still working 40 hours for the week . . . but you get a three-day weekend. Wait, people are working 10-hour days, but only four days a week!? And according to the companies that are offering it, they've seen a serious rise in morale. The study also found that working from [...]

Brewed by the Jonas Brothers

By |2019-10-11T07:58:29-05:00October 11th, 2019|

THE BHMS talked about the JONAS BROTHERS and how HUGE fans of Coors Light they are. As proven by the fact that Nick, Joe, and Kevin jumped at the chance to visit the brewery in Golden, Colorado, and create their own limited-edition batch. It'll be available in select markets while supplies last. You'll know it's the Jonas Brothers' one because their faces are superimposed onto the Coors Light mountains, like Mount Rushmore. For better or worse, their batch won't taste any different than your classic Coors Light, but you can crush one knowing it was made with the very talented hands of [...]

Cheating at Church Bingo

By |2019-10-10T08:02:28-05:00October 10th, 2019|

Let's file this under "what the hell are you thinking!" Ooh, let's put bouncers outside of heaven as they are not going like this. Two women from Camden, New Jersey were busted last week for cheating during church Bingo night. A church volunteer caught 71-year-old Teresa Davis and 38-year-old Keasha Brockington taping numbers onto their bingo cards to win the Bingo prize which was a little under $200. The church called the cops, and Teresa and Keasha were arrested for improper behavior... in a CHURCH! A spokesperson from the church said it's the first time they've had a cheating incident in [...]
