“Will Smith doesn’t have to cuss to sell records. Well, I do, so f**k him and f**k you too.”
Sounds familiar? This was Eminem response to Will Smith’s grammy speech in which he talked about rap without cussing.
So, back in the day Eminem was hanging with Dj Jazzy Jeff when Will Smith stopped by the studio. For the first time he heard Eminem. That’s when Smith made the comment:
"You’re either gonna be the biggest flop in Hip Hop, or you’re gonna be the biggest thing that we’ve ever seen in Hip Hop.”
Little did we all know, Smith was pretty spot on! Eminem of course went on to be one of the BIGGEST thing to happen to hip-hop!
He has now sold over 100 Million albums worldwide, more than any other artist in any genre of music this past decade.
Rob McElhenney is the creator, executive producer and one of the stars of the hit TV comedy It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.
As anyone who has seen the show can attest, he doesn't hold back when it comes to comedy. Whether that means he's making a very unpolitically correct joke or more recently, gaining 50 pounds.
For the show's seventh season, McElhenney decided to pack on the pounds. He thought it would be funny to play his character, Mac, who is usually vain and in shape, as a fat man.
His costar, Charlie Day, said it was pretty disgusting watching McElhenney gain so much weight, and Day was concerned for his health. However, Day couldn't deny that it made Mac funnier.
Robots may seem like a modern day invention. Not if you ask Pierre Jaquet-Droz though. You can't ask him because he lived 240 years ago, but you can check out the robot or "automaton" that he built.
Jaquet-Droz was a famous Swiss watchmaker, and he used his skills to make a writing robot. The machine looks like a life-size boy doll.
hAnd he writes with ink and quill. Inside the robot, is a series of gears and mechanical parts that can be interchanged depending on what you want the robot to write.
Decide which letters need to be written, fix those inside the robot and he puts quill to paper and writes whatever you choose.
The economic crisis in 2008 hit America hard. It may be to blame for the increasing number of US families living in extreme poverty.
This is defined as living on less than $2 per person per day. The number of families fitting this definition has doubled in the last 15 years and now comes to 1.46 million.
Many of these families receive government benefits, such as food stamps. When this is taken into account, the number of families in extreme poverty drops to 800,000. This is still up from 475,000 in 1996.
The government helps these families through a number of different programs. Apart from food stamps, they also provide health care, college grants, energy assistance, among other benefits. In 2011, the government spent $900 billion on 70 such programs.
On June 30, 1999 the body of Rick McCormick was found in a field in Charles County, Missouri.
Authorities could not determine how his death came about or whether or not it was murder. Inside McCormick's pockets were two handwritten notes seemingly written in code.
The FBI's Cryptanalysis and Rackateering Records unit failed to decode the message as did the American Cryptogram Association. In 2011, the FBI appealed to the public to see if anyone could decode the notes, but this too failed.
It still remains uncertain whether McCormick actually wrote the notes. His mother said that he could only write his own name and his father said he only scribbled things.
And even if someone could decipher the code, perhaps it has nothing to do with McCormick's death.
