Revenge Porn Site Operator Tells Google To Remove His Personal Info. Seriously.

The stupid, it burns. It could only be better if they were naked pictures of him after he’d been in the pool, to use the George Constanza excuse.

For the record, this is what Craig Brittain looked like in 2013 when he sat down to speak with KCAL-TV about his site. For the record, this is what Craig Brittain looked like in 2013 when he sat down to speak with KCAL-TV about his site. For several years, Craig Brittain operated a so-called “revenge porn” website that not only allowed users to publicly post revealing photos and personal information about people (mostly women) without their permission, but actively encouraged it. The site has since been shut down and Brittain recently settled with the Federal Trade Commission over allegations of fraud. But now the man who made money off the sharing of strangers’ images doesn’t want the world to know what he looks like.

Red Bull Tries To Block Brewer From Trademarking “Old Ox” Because They Are Both Bovines

Oh for the love of Pete…

We know it’s hard to tell the two apart, but the one on the left is probably for Red Bull… we think. Whether it’s the pizzeria logo that resembles the Garden State Parkway sign, two beers battling over the use of the same three letters, or a bunch of marijuana edibles with humorous takes on famous chocolate brands, even the silliest trademark disputes are usually based in the argument that maybe someone out there might possibly confuse the products.

I Think I Shall Blog

Although I know not what to blog about.

So I’ve been mad about something for a month now. Like soul eating head exploding hate the world mad. This isn’t a good way to live, FYI. Rather than confront the issue I’ve been doing projects at church to avoid it. I am a huge fan of Captain Awkward and know she and the Awkward Army would say Use My Words(TM). It would be just and right advice. I also know the person I should Use My Words(TM) with won’t change. So it feels kinda useless to do it.

This adulthood shit sucks.
