HOTNESS DISCRIMINATION..IS THIS WOMAN TOO HOT TO SUCCEED?
According to Laura, her LOOKS have RUINED HER CAREER. Laura has a graduate degree in science, and had a pretty good job as a scientific researcher. We're not sure what branch, because the places that covered this story clearly weren't into it for the details. But Laura says she had to quit a few years ago because she says her male coworkers just hit on her and didn't respect her, her female coworkers didn't like her . . . and it crippled her career. Quote, "I wanted them to recognize my achievements and my professionalism but all they saw was my face and body. Even when I was in a laboratory in scrubs with no makeup, they still [hit] on me because of my natural attractiveness." Laura says her parents now pay her rent and bills while she figures out what to do.
YOUR THOUGHTS? TOO HOT OR TOO NOT?

POT COOKIES ANYONE?
One of the hosts of the "Today" show in Australia messed with his co-host's teleprompter script the other day . . . just like what Christina Applegate does to Will Ferrell in "Anchorman". The Aussie co-host's on-script flub was talking about a soccer match in Amsterdam, and the extra line he added was, quote, "How good are the COOKIES there?" (As in, pot cookies.) She's wearing some egg on this one,
ANGELINA JOLIE...BRAVE AND STILL BEAUTIFUL: Kickin' Cancer Out

"My doctors estimated that I had an 87 percent risk of breast cancer and a 50 percent risk of ovarian cancer, although the risk is different in the case of each woman," "Once I knew that this was my reality, I decided to be proactive and to minimize the risk as much I could. I made a decision to have a preventive double mastectomy."
I was stunned to see this. I guess you never expect the rich and beautiful to have the problems that the rest of us have. Of course, the cost of surgery and reconstruction is a non factor for Angelina, but the idea of a woman who was voted "Most Beautiful in the World", several times over, removing both breasts in a preventive measure, with no current disease presenting...is shocking and courageous. Congratulations to ALL CANCER SURVIVORS and the incredible people who are faced with these insanely difficult decisions everyday. You are all an inspiration, and prove everyday the beauty runs deeper than appearance. That takes alot of guts. ~Scully

UPDATE: LIVER EATING ALCOHOL
NOT FLESH EATING BACTERIA
Slayer have revealed that guitarist Jeff Hanneman's death on May 2nd at the age of 49 was alcohol related and not due to the "flesh-eating" disease necrotising fasciitis that sidelined him in 2011.
They made a statement Thursday. "We've just learned that the official cause of Jeff's death was alcohol related cirrhosis. "While he had his health struggles over the years, including the recent necrotizing fasciitis infection that devastated his well-being, Jeff and those close to him were not aware of the true extent of his liver condition until the last days of his life. "Contrary to some reports, Jeff was not on a transplant list at the time of his passing, or at any time prior to that. In fact, by all accounts, it appeared that he had been improving – he was excited and looking forward to working on a new record." "While the details are being worked out now, Slayer wants its fans to know that there will be a celebration of Jeff Hanneman's life sometime later this month, along with Jeff's family and friends, the public will be invited to attend."
Kerry King and Tom Araya did a tribute to Jeff where Kerry said: "I had so many great times with Jeff... in the early days when we were out on the road, he and I were the night owls, we would stay up all night on the bus, just hanging out, talking, watching movies... World War II movies, horror movies, we watched Full Metal Jacket so many times, we could practically recite all of the dialogue."
Tom Araya said: "When we first formed Slayer, we used to rehearse all the time, religiously, 24/7. Jeff and I spent a lot of time hanging out together, he lived in my father's garage which was also our rehearsal space. When he got his own apartment, he had an 8-track and I would go there to record songs I'd written, not Slayer songs, other stuff I'd written. At a certain point, you still have the band but you start your own lives outside of the band, so that 24/7 falls to the side, you don't spend as much time together as you once did. I miss those early days."
"He was a gigantic World War II buff, his father served in that war, so when Slayer played Russia for the first time - I think it was 1998 - Jeff and I went to one of Moscow's military museums. I'll never forget him walking around that place, looking at all of the tanks, weapons and other exhibits. He was like a kid on Christmas morning. But that was Jeff's thing, he knew so much about WW II history, he could have taught it in school."
"We were in New York recording South Of Heaven. Jeff and I were at the hotel and we had to get to the studio - I think it was called Chung King, a real rundown place. So we left the hotel and decided to walk, but then it started raining. We walked maybe five blocks, and it was raining so hard, we were totally soaked, so we decided to get a cab. Here we are, two dudes with long hair and leather jackets, absolutely soaked, thumbing to the studio. No one would stop. We had to walk the entire way."
"Jeff was a lifeline of Slayer, he wrote so many of the songs that the band will always be known for. He had a good heart, he was a good guy."
