Food Fight For Lives: Put Down Your Damn Phone and Drive

by Accidental Bear

 

Join the fight HERE

Are you furious at the mmount of drivers who talk on Phones and Driving. Stricter laws are needed, but in the mean time throw your food at them. Guaranteed to make them think.

We want to start a movement that will irritate the hell out of people breaking the law and make them stop and think. The punishment for people busted for driving while talking or texting is barley a slap on the wrist and way to lenient. Gruesome pictures of severed body part and crushed vehicles aren’t enough, so let’s take a different approach!

We are encouraging you to, every time you see someone on the phone and driving to throw what ever food or drink that is in your hands or easy to grab at them and get their attention and royally piss them off. I did this earlier with a full cup of coffee and boy did it feel good!

Let us know your stories and pass this own.

PSA: How a Bear Loves a Cockatoo Named Babalu

by Accidental Bear

IMPORTANT: Please read how you can help save parrots. The movie “Rio” will have consequences. If we work hard we can turn these into positive consequences. Please check out this article CLICK HERE. The movie will inspire many to purchase these fragile spirited creatures and then abandon them once they discover that they are loud, have powerful beaks, and often destroy their feathers or act aggressively. Caution: “Rio” shows parrots taking poison: Cocoa, chocolate chip cookies, and food from human mouths. “Rio” does have value, too. It shows that human-raised birds rarely can survive in the wild. On the humorous side, note that the parrots in the movie have only 3 toes, not four.We must all act to turn this potential disaster into a venue to educate the public on the true nature of parrots. For more on their true nature, see this information in pdf format.

The Late Great Fashion Designer Alexander McQueen Keeps on Giving

by Accidental Bear

(via news.pinkpaper.com)

Alexander McQueen bequeathes £100,000 to Terrence Higgins Trust

The late fashion designer Alexander McQueen has bestowed £100,000 of his fortune to gay men’s charity Terrence Higgins Trust. The donation is one of four £100,000 gifts he donated in his will, this week. Other organisations who also received the sum are: Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the London Buddhist Centre and the Blue Cross animal welfare charity in Oxfordshire. Out of his estimated £16 million fortune, he also left £50,000 for each of his dogs, gave £50,000 to both of his two housekeepers and  bequeathed £250,000 to each of his siblings.

The iconic fashion designer, who suffered long-term anxiety and depression, was found dead at his London home on 11 February 2010. Westminter’s Coroner’s Court ruled today that he had taken sleeping pills, tranquilizers and cocaine before strangling himself.

Sir Nick Partridge, Chief Executive of Terrence Higgins Trust, said: “Alexander McQueen was a friend of THT. He supported us for over 12 years, working alongside the charity to raise awareness of HIV as well as vital funds. We’re touched that he chose to leave this generous legacy, which will be used to support those living with and affected by HIV in the UK.”
