Why This Man And Woman Are In The Hospital Together Is The Most Insane, Brutal Thing Ever. OMG.

When people are faced with big choices and life changes, a lot of things can happen. But what shouldn’t happen? Attempting to light your girlfriend on fire by attaching a gas can to her back. A Chinese man kidnapped his pregnant 21 year-old girlfriend. He tied a gas can to her back. Then, he ignited it, hoping to murder her and the baby.

The boyfriend, Li Moulian, wanted to murder his girlfriend Xu Fan.

Daily Mail

He dragged her out of her bed and tried to set her on fire.

Daily Mail

While trying to brutally kill his girlfriend and their unborn child, he was injured as well.

Daily Mail

The couple ended up side-by-side in the hospital. Surgeons are fighting to save their lives.

Daily Mail

Miraculously, the baby is healthy and alive.

Daily Mail

Xu Fan became pregnant by mistake after a one night stand while cheating on her boyfriend, but the couple decided to stay together.

Daily Mail

(H/T Daily Mail) It’s miraculous that the couple survived. It’s even more miraculous that the baby is unharmed. It seems that the relationship and the situation was too much for the man, resulting in his attack on his own girlfriend. He attacked her while she was asleep, put her in a car and drove around the town before police were able to spot him. She was pulled from the car by the police and the flames were extinguished. So many crazy things happen in the world. Share this story of survival with others. The baby inside the girlfriend’s belly is a living miracle.

22 Genius Tips To Help You Cook More On Weeknights

Save money, eat healthy, and organize your kitchen all at once!

1. Menu planning can be as simple as making your fridge into a shopping list and menu planner.

Just add a little chalk paint. See how to do it here. That way no one will need to ask ‘What’s for dinner?”

2. You can also make a cute and simple DIY message-board to keep track of your weekly plan.

See how to make this one here.

3. Use recipe cards to display your upcoming menu for easy access.

 

Then you can pull the cards right out and take them with you to the grocery store as a pre-made list.

Get this menu board here.

4. To see how to make a more complex master meal planning board, and even download tons of kid-friendly recipes, check out this master database by RobbyGirl.

5. Adding sides to your menu ahead of time will help you make even more balanced meals.

 

Meagan at The Homes I Have Made uses these clever code letters to add sides to her magnetic menu board. See how she did it, and more menu planning tips, here.

6. There are lots of streamlined online planning tools to help you organize your meal planning.

Apps like Evernote (free), MealBoard ($3.99) and PepperPlate (free) let you organize all your meal planning right inside their interface, and even import recipes you love from other sites.

7. Try setting up nightly themes to help you come up with ideas.

Taya K of Simply Frugal uses these theme nights when she’s stumped on new ideas.

Some easy theme ideas include:

-Mexican Night
-Pasta Night
-Sandwich Night
-Soup Night
-Beef Night
-Chicken Night
-Casserole Night
-Stir Fry Night
-Breakfast for Dinner
-Scrounge Night (more tips on how to do a scrounge night below!)

8. Create a master list of everyone’s favorite meals.

That way you can mix and match weekly so everyone is happy.

Get this vinyl organizer from Controlling My Chaos here.

9. If you want to get even more organized, color code the meals by difficulty or number of ingredients.

That way you can make easier meals on busier nights of the week.

See how to make this Ultimate DIY Menu Board here.

10. Master the ‘scrounge’ night for when you don’t have time to make a whole meal.

This can come in many forms, including ‘leftover night,’ ‘feed yourself night,’ etc. It’s especially useful towards the end of the week right before you go grocery shopping.

Pro tip: Label all your leftovers so it’s easier for everyone to pick what they want. Get these printable labels here.

11. A great resource for making the most out of whatever is left in your fridge is Recipe Puppy.

Just type in the ingredients you have on hand and it will come up with several recipes! Check it out here.

12. Make extra servings of the most versatile meals to use on leftover night.

To avoid the ‘leftover night glumness,’ learn how to re-invent the meals instead of just reheating.

Some great way to do that are:
Pizza-fying
– Putting leftovers in a wrap
– Adding leftovers to a salad
– Turning savory leftovers into a delicious breakfast

13. Spend time adding new meals to your repertoire.

Planning meals in advance can start to feel tedious when you’re using the same meals every week. Take time to browse websites or cookbooks for new ideas that will bring excitement back into the planning.

Here are some of our favorite recipe sites:

Food Gawker (for general food and recipe porn)
Simple Bites (for kid-friendly recipes)
Little Leopard Book (for creative takes on old recipes)
Dinner: A Love Story (for frugal and family-friendly recipes)
BuzzFeed Food, of course!

14. Use weekly sales to help you pick which meals to make.

If chicken is $1 per pound one week, that’s a great reason to make your favorite chicken dishes! Check your local supermarket circulars for upcoming sales. There are also great apps that help you match your local sales with recipes, like this one on iTunes from Food.com.

15. Pre-cook parts of the meals in advance.

Save time during the week by cooking anything that can be cooked early on one night. Roast chicken, brown ground beef, stew tomato sauce, blanche vegetables and then mix-and-match them in several meals throughout the week.

Learn how to master the art of vegetable blanching here.

16. Once a month, have a “freezer day.”

Many things can be pre-prepped and frozen to use weeks later. Soups, herbs, breadcrumbs, beans, shredded cheese, sauces, and many other ingredients can be frozen to save time.

See a list of what you can freeze here.

17. Make whole meals ahead of time and use them on weeknights when you have less tine.

The Pioneer Woman is the master of the tasty freezer meal. Check out some of her recipes for things that can be made ahead and savored later here.

18. You can even make lots of freezer-ready breakfasts…

 

Pre-make things like pancakes, sandwiches, breakfast burritos, and muffins.

19. …and lunches…

These will thaw out throughout the day before lunch so kids won’t even need to use the microwave. Plus, the frozen sandwich can work as an ice pack for other lunch items.

Get the recipe for these here.

20. …and even desserts!

 

Nothing beats having Nutella Cake or Reese’s Cookies on hand at all times.

21. Keep your pantry stocked.

Nothing’s worse than having everything for your menu except that one crucial item. Having a stocked pantry means you’ll always have something to replace anything that you forgot at the store, and it will make weekly shopping trips that much easier. Check our this post from Life in Grace on what you need in the perfect pantry.

22. Organize your fridge to create ‘food zones.’

Having an organized fridge wil help you save time when you’re cooking, and save you money when things don’t get hidden in the back and go bad. Create food zones like the ‘sandwich zone’ and the ‘leftover zone’ to help keep things easy-to-find.

Mom deported for not changing lanes? Daily Beast headline leaves out a few crucial details

A lengthy piece published in The Daily Beast with the ominous subhead, “Feeding the Monsters,” goes into great detail about the ordeal of “one Ohio resident with head injuries after being rear-ended” who “was deported anywayand kidnapped the same day.”

The article goes into harrowing detail about Mexican cartels and violent crime, but before getting to any of that, readers need to get past the headline: “Mom Deported Because She Didn’t Change Lanes.” We’re guessing there was room to squeeze a couple more words in the tweet, but this is what readers were given:

‘Act like a man’: #Brochoicer laments pro-life bill; Kirsten Powers, tweeters shred

http://twitter.com/#!/kirstenpowers10/status/355051376637771776

What a novel idea.

Texas blogger Ben Sherman, who considers himself to be staunchly “bro-choice,” vomited up a post last week bemoaning the many horrible effects that the Texas abortion bill would have on straight men. Here’s the kicker:

Your sex life is at stake. Can you think of anything that kills the vibe faster than a woman fearing a back-alley abortion? Making abortion essentially inaccessible in Texas will add an anxiety to sex that will drastically undercut its joys. And don’t be surprised if casual sex outside of relationships becomes far more difficult to come by.

Because nothing says “I’m a man who cares deeply about women’s needs” like whining about not getting any.

Fox News contributor and pro-life advocate Kirsten Powers was rightly disgusted, and she took to Twitter to show pro-choice women what their warped brand of “feminism” hath wrought:

http://twitter.com/#!/kirstenpowers10/status/355042650807742464 http://twitter.com/#!/kirstenpowers10/status/355043338623262720 http://twitter.com/#!/kirstenpowers10/status/355043788055515136

Pro-choice women, is this what empowerment looks like to you? Being objectified by men who claim to respect you?

http://twitter.com/#!/IMAO_/status/355053074324271104

Doesn’t it, though? These certainly aren’t the musings of a mature adult man.

http://twitter.com/#!/charlescwcooke/status/355051962082926592

Take note, pro-abortion feminists. This is what it means to be “bro-choice”:

http://twitter.com/#!/TRMirCat/status/355052334201577472 http://twitter.com/#!/TMugg/status/355052567027392512 http://twitter.com/#!/hale_razor/status/355053864803770369 http://twitter.com/#!/jimantle/status/355054427914256384 http://twitter.com/#!/sunnyright/status/355057081780420608 http://twitter.com/#!/alkalinesurge/status/355054183981907971 http://twitter.com/#!/bob_owens/status/355052436261576708

Are you proud of yourself, Ben Sherman? Proud of the portrait you’re painting of women?

http://twitter.com/#!/LivinOnAClaire/status/355054154135248896

And of men?

http://twitter.com/#!/SoonerCubby/status/355054115191132160

Thank goodness for real men. Men like these:

http://twitter.com/#!/Matthops82/status/355051802086998017 http://twitter.com/#!/sunnyright/status/355055428452880385

Hear, hear.

Mother Makes Son Ride On The Roof Of Her Car To Hold Down A Kiddie Pool

One of the absolute worst things about shopping is trying to figure out how you’re going to fit your seemingly endless supply of shopping bags into the trunk or back seat of your car.

But the daunting task can be even more stressful when your shopping haul includes large and unusually shaped items. And while it’s perfectly okay to strap large items such as canoes or bikes to the roof of your car, one thing that’s not okay is leaving an unstrapped kiddie pool on top of your car with your child inside to hold it down.

While this might sounds like fiction, I promise you this parenting horror story is not #FakeNews.

Twenty-eight-year old Amber Schmunk was charged with child endangerment after she let her son ride on top of her minivan to keep a large kiddie pool from flying away.

Police were called last month to the crossroads of Hillcrest Road and Claremont Road in Saukville, Wisconsin, after neighbors reported the unusual sight.

In an interview with Fox 6 Now, Schmunk’s neighbor Barbara Sellin chastised the woman for risking the safety of her child. “I know the kids have to be strapped in. That’s just common sense. You love your kids and take care of them. To put a kid on top of the car is beyond ridiculous,” said Sellin.

According to the filed complaint, Schmunk later unstrapped her son from the roof and folded up the pool and placed both inside her minivan before pulling into her sister’s driveway.

When police arrived at the woman’s house, Schmunk told officers that she didn’t think twice about her dangerous stunt because when she was younger, her father did similar things. She also told police that she had no way to strap the pool down, so instead she made her son climb onto the roof to hold it down while she drove.

You Can Do Some Pretty Awesome Things With These Tiny Plastic Hooks

As you shipped your sons or daughters off to college a few weeks ago, I’m willing to bet that Command strips were on your list of must-haves.

But this company makes products that are good for way more than hanging decorations. Command also makes hooks that are amazing for when you want to hang things like towels and coats without committing to a nailed-in rack.

As it turns out, Command hooks are full of life-hack potential! To get you started, here are 15 uses for these little guys that you probably never thought of.

1. There’s nothing worse than having to constantly hold your iPad while watching TV in bed. Why not try this inexpensive wall mount that will give you a little freedom?

2. Hang bags in the car to keep all your trash in one place.

3. Unraveling cling wrap can be a bit unnerving when you’re trying to tear and unroll at the same time. Rig boxes of cling wrap, aluminum foil, and wax paper by hanging them up with Command hooks.

4. Rotate your kids’ drawings by clipping them to clothes hangers and hanging them with Command hooks. No nails necessary!

5. Use them to increase storage in your cupboards by mounting lids on cabinet doors.

6. Keep unwanted visitors out of the fridge with two hooks and a hair tie.

7. Prevent your trash bag from falling inside the can by securing the handles with hooks.

8. Living in a world with technology can mean that you have to deal with lots of misplaced wires. Keep them hidden with a few plastic hooks.

9. Show off your green thumb by creating your own hanging pots that you can use inside and outside.

10. Decorating for the holidays just got so much easier. Keep Christmas lights in place using small Command hooks.

11. Can’t find your car keys? Ditch heavy-duty key racks like the one below and use Command hooks in the same way.

12. Hang a wreath in place without leaving a nail sticking out when you take it down.

iStock

13. Sideways hooks inside your bathroom cabinet make for an inexpensive toothbrush holder alternative.

iStock

14. Our teacher friends won’t have to worry about disappearing headphones. Hang hooks on monitors so kiddos know exactly where to put them back.

15. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so make sure you’re eating a balanced diet by measuring out the right portions with this simple hook hack.

I don’t know about you, but I’m hooked on the idea of using these simple hacks. (I’m sorry…I had to.)

Shia LaBeouf says he’s retiring from public life; Tweeters help him pack

http://twitter.com/#!/SonnyBunch/status/421660105398964225

Shia LaBeouf has a plagiarism problem. Well, he doesn’t seem to think it’s much of a problem, but the artistic community does. Most notably, LaBeouf got busted for ripping off graphic novelist Daniel Clowes after a short film he made bore an uncanny resemblance to one of Clowes’ works. His apology tweets to Clowes were reportedly ripped off as well.

A Clowes representative recently sent a cease-and-desist letter to LaBeouf’s lawyer accusing LaBeouf of further plagiarism and “improper and outlandish conduct directed at Mr. Clowes and his works.” For his fans’ reading pleasure, LaBeouf posted the letter on Twitter:

http://twitter.com/#!/thecampaignbook/status/420931951462477824 http://twitter.com/#!/thecampaignbook/status/420931993946558464

Apparently, that letter was the last straw for LaBeouf, who tweeted this early this morning:

http://twitter.com/#!/thecampaignbook/status/421577950342160384

Say it ain’t so!

http://twitter.com/#!/thecampaignbook/status/421577992734015488

He’ll certainly be missed. Not by us, but there’s gotta be somebody out there who’ll miss him … right?

Hey, found one!

http://twitter.com/#!/coco_ess/status/421661562424668160

The Shia LaBeouf Fan Club is a lonely, lonely place.
