Two weeks after the fall of Saigon, on May 12, 1975, Khmer Rouge soldiers on patrol boats fired a rocket-propelled grenade across the bow of the U.S. merchant ship SS Mayaguez.

The United States didn’t recognize the Khmer Rouge’s claim of 12 nautical miles of territorial waters. When the more than 10,000-ton container ship sailed too close to Poulo Wai island on its way from Saigon to Sattahip, Thailand, the patrol boats scrambled to chase it.

Seth Meyers Tears Into Trump For Playing the Hero With Executive Order

NBC

Over the course of his 10-minute “A Closer Look” segment Wednesday night, Seth Meyers set out to prove why President Donald Trump’s constant lying is so pernicious.

“Trump’s only political skill is his total and complete lack of shame,” the Late Night host began. “His malignant narcissism allows him to confidently and brazenly lie in the way that most other politicians would be too embarrassed to even try.”

Sometimes, these blatant lies are relatively victimless. But that is not the case this week as Trump attempts to take credit for ending a “cruel” policy of separating immigrant families at the border that he himself implemented.

10 Reasons Deadpool Is the Hero Moviegoers Deserve

Alright, nerds. Deadpool 2 is coming into your theater soon, and unless you’ve been living under an Infinity Stone for the past few years, you know how exciting that is. Deadpool combines the relentless charm of Ryan Reynolds, the looks of an overcooked pizza, and the gratuitous body count of Man of Steel.

But if you somehow don’t know the difference between Deadpool and Van Wilder, which we understand because they are super similar, here are some things you need to know about Wade Wilson and why he’s the biggest bleepin’ badass out there.

1. He has an accelerated healing factor. Yes, it’s like Wolverine’s. They’re also both Canadian. But Wade is taller, and fewer people like him. He also only has one indestructible “bone.”

2. In the comics, he got his powers from the Weapon X program. OK, look. He and Wolverine have a lot in common. It’s like comic book writers only have so many ideas.

3. Deadpool hosted the Venom symbiote just after Spider-Man did. You won’t see that in a movie, though, because those rights would be impossible to sort out.

4. Wade doesn’t always play well with others, but he has teamed up with X-Force and had his own squad, Mercs for Money. But he still won’t take the X-Men’s calls. That’s definitely it. It’s not that they don’t actually want him around. What did they tell you?

5. Deadpool has the handwriting of an angel.

6. His biggest fear is cows. That’s not ridiculous. Have you ever really looked at a cow? That baleful stare is so haunting.

7. Deadpool gets all his weapons from his buddy Weasel, whose real name is Jack Hammer. But he doesn’t use that name in the movies because it’s way cooler than “Wade Wilson.” It pays to be the star.

8. In addition to his quick healing, Wade has super-fast reflexes, speed, and agility. But they don’t always work. A lot of guys have that problem sometimes, alright?

9. Wade can speak Japanese, German, Spanish, and Esperanto, which lets him play himself in international printings of the comics.

10. His most formidable superpower is the ability to annoy anyone. If Domino can count “luck,” he’s taking this.

Now that you’re totally oversold, go see Deadpool 2. Yeah, this was an ad. Why else do you think people make these things?

Soccer Player Becomes Internet Hero Thanks to His Cool Homer Simpson Meme Jersey

One of the internet’s most beloved memes is Homer Simpson receding into bushes – and it keeps on giving.

People often deploy the meme from the 1994 episode of The Simpsons when it’s time for fair-weather sports fans to desert their team. But now the meme is enjoying another winning streak on the back of an actual soccer player – Nicolás Caprio.

He’s a 28-year-old goalkeeper who plays for the Argentine division 3 team Ferro Carril Oeste de General Pico. His latest feat? He emerged to win the internet with his cool jersey, which features the “Homer Simpson backing into the bushes” meme on it.

Everyone knows you can’t always spin athletic achievements into internet gold. In this case, Caprio is betting his choice to wear a meme on the lower half of his bright green jersey will make him a fan favorite. People are – and this may not shock you – impressed with his gear. Score.

See him in action below.

Chris Redfield Teams up with Umbrella in ‘Resident Evil 7: Not a Hero’ DLC

Resident Evil 7 was a new beginning for the series, but it hasn’t wasted any time bringing back old characters. Franchise favourite Chris Redfield has returned in the Not a Hero DLC, and is teaming up with a newly staffed Blue Umbrella corporation to clean up the rest of the mess around Baker Ranch.

The first act of Resident Evil 7 was lauded as the series getting back to its grand, horrific roots. It was minimal — just a backwater house, with a family who liked to eat people. The son rigged everything with explosives. The daughter turned out to be evil and moldy. The mum gave birth to insects. So, y’know. Typical Louisiana family.

As the game went on, it got more into the “superpowerful evil little girl” trope. As you learned more about what was happening, the mystery was slowly lost. It was one of those endings that was epic on paper, but what players would talk about to their friends was that memorable first act.

Back Into the Mines

Redfield begins this DLC looking for Lucas Baker, the crafty engineer who is shown to attempt to transfer his E-type data to bioterrorist organisation The Connection. Three of Redfield’s agents have already had a rough time against Baker, who has fled into a nearby mining tunnel. It’s time to settle the vendetta.

It’s a section of tunnel that’ll look familiar to anyone who experienced the main campaign, and the repeated level design is forgivable in a free DLC package. One thing’s for sure though, new stuff is being done with this space.

Lucas Baker is best known for his “escape room” sequence in the main campaign, which forced you to solve puzzles to attempt to get out alive. Baker has set up these mining tunnels in much the same way, which is an enticing reason to try out this DLC.


Resident Evil 7 DLC Not a Hero
Not a problem you can shoot your way through

There are practical jokes with lethal punchlines. There are puzzles and traps. And there are several instances of “I know he wants me to push that button, but… What else can I do?”

Sections of the mines will require different items, in a mini-Metroidvania way. One tunnel is lousy with contamination, so you can’t get far without a gas mask filter. Another tunnel is dark, not allowing you to see tripwires without nightvision.

The latter of these is a lame excuse to gate content. I was able to see well enough to walk through the tunnel, and could certainly make out an elevator button in front of me. On pressing the Use key, Redfield would just say “Is something there?”

Same Enemy, New Trick

Not a Hero introduces a new kind of molded as well. Covered in white, this new enemy isn’t as strong as a normal molded, but can’t be damaged by normal bullets. You’ll have to run from the first few that you see, until you discover the RAMROD bullets.

On paper, these stop a white molded from regenerating. But I found that only applied to bosses. The vast majority of white molded will die to one RAMROD, even if it’s in the chest.

As you might expect, RAMRODs are rarer than normal bullets. You’re certainly provided with enough — but things get tricky when Not a Hero starts mixing up the enemy types.

With a few crawling molded getting ready to jump at you, and one big white molded lumbering in your direction, you’ll need to switch weapons and ammo types quickly. It’s all about using the right tool for the right job, and you don’t have forever to fumble around changing clips.


Resident Evil 7 DLC Not a Hero molded
Some of these will spawn indefinitely

I never found myself short of ammunition, largely thanks to the return of the Redfield punch. Most shots will stagger a molded — even body shots — at which point pressing the fire button in close range will trigger a haymaker for a guaranteed kill.

Somehow, Not a Hero combines the best and worst parts of Resident Evil 7. Lucas Baker is a great villain, and his escape room antics are very present. But the more it veers towards global conspiracies, and trying to come up with plausible explanations for its horror, the less interesting it becomes.

Thankfully there’s a lot more of the former, and less of the latter. Not a Hero is free if you have Resident Evil 7, and should take you two hours or less to play through.

This easy pumpkin pull-apart bread recipe will make you a hero

by

Lindsay Weiss

posted in Life

I am pretty much a hero in my house today since I actually made these for breakfast. This is a major feat in my house because my oldest begins school at 7:40, meaning we have to leave the house at 7:15. So breakfast of any kind that requires actual preparation or, you know, cooking, doesn’t ever happen because I AM NOT A MORNING PERSON.

(That is the understatement of the century.)

But I hobbled out of bed and threw this together in my sleep, basically. It made the house smell so amazing that the kids actually got themselves out of bed and peered down the stairs thinking it was Christmas morning because someone had actually cooked them breakfast.

Sure, this recipe is cheating because it starts with canned biscuits. But if said canned biscuits enable you to sleep 30 minutes later on any given morning you have to seize that moment and sleep like it’s your job for those 30 minutes. Rip open the biscuits and stir the pumpkin goodness together. Layer ’em all up and throw ’em in the oven while you stir up the glaze.

I promise the end product tastes nothing like canned biscuits. This one is a keeper.

Easy Pumpkin Pull-Apart Bread

3/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 cup granulated sugar, divided
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 large egg
1 can (8 count) Pillsbury Grands Biscuits (homestyle or buttermilk, not flaky)
1 teaspoon cinnamon

4 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 to 4 tablespoons milk – more for a thinner glaze

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 8×4 or 9×5 loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray.

2. Stir together the pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup granulated sugar, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and egg. Set aside.

3. Separate the dough into 8 biscuits. Separate each biscuit into 2 layers, making total of 16 biscuit rounds. Stir together remaining 1/4 cup granulated sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl. Coat each slice of raw biscuit dough with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

4. Add about 1 T. of pumpkin mixture on top of first biscuit layer. Repeat, stacking biscuits in 4 piles of 4 biscuits each.

5. Place stacks on their sides in a row in loaf pan, making sure sides without filling are on both ends touching pan. Place carefully into the pan.

6. Bake for about 20-26 minutes, or until the top is golden and the center is cooked through. I like to cover the top loosely with foil for the first 10-15 minutes so the top doesn’t get too done while the center is still gooey. Remove from oven and cool before glazing.

7. To make the glaze: Beat cream cheese until very creamy. Beat in powdered sugar. Stir in vanilla. Add 3 tablespoons milk. Combine all the ingredients. Add more milk to get desired consistency. Drizzle over loaf, pull apart, and serve.

Hero Squirrel Attempts To Eat Taco Nearly The Size Of Its Whole Body

Everyone goes nuts for tacos ― even squirrels.

Well, this one anyway.

Brooklyn resident Maria Bianchi recently managed to photograph a sighting of “Taco Squirrel,” a relatively rare creature in the animal kingdom.

As you can see by Bianchi’s tweet, Taco Squirrel has a jones for hardshell tacos.

Bianchi hasn’t responded to inquiries about where she took the photo or what kind of tasty taco filling ― if any ― the squirrel was enjoying.

Whatever it was, it’s safe to say it probably was delicious, because tacos, by their very nature, are delicious. Even just the lone shell would probably still be pretty good.

Taco Squirrel is just the latest urban animal caught in a feeding frenzy by a world hungry for photos of urban animals eating fast food.

The trend began in September, 2015, with the appearance of “Pizza Rat,” a rodent seen dragging a slice of cheap-ass pizza down the stairs of the New York Subway.

A performance artist named Zardulu later claimed that she staged “Pizza Rat” as a hoax, which was more of a letdown than cheap-ass pizza. The man who originally posted the video of Pizza Rat maintains that it was real and Zardulu had nothing to do with it. 

Either way, the cheesy video managed to inspire people to take other photos of animals with diets just as crappy as humans.

Like “Bagel Pigeon.”

”Doughnut Rat.”

And last but not least, “Milkshake Squirrel.”

Why This Mom Is Calling Miley Cyrus a Hero

2015-05-08-1431122315-6935675-Miley.jpg

Say what you will about Miley Cyrus but the girl has the ability to accumulate press. And, what I’ve always loved about her, even when her actions made me cringe, is that she didn’t seem to care what other people said or thought. That kind of self-confidence, especially in a girl that age, always blew me away.

But, now she just because my freaking hero.

Have you heard of The Happy Hippie Foundation yet? If not, I want you to finish reading this sentence and take the link to read about it. I’ll be right here when you come back.

Did you read about it? Can you understand why I am moved to tears by her work? She outlines how 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT and how 1 in 3 transgender youth have been turned away from shelters. She has started an organization to directly help homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

And Miley isn’t just talk. She raised over $ 200,000 in 24 hours for My Friend’s Place, an organization dedicated to helping homeless youth. I can’t even read their description of homeless youth statistics without getting choked up.

Miley’s marketing for her foundation is smart. She’ll be having backyard jam sessions with huge names like Joan Jett and posting them on Facebook to help raise awareness. Um, can you get any cooler than Joan Jett??

Somewhere along the way, little Hannah Montana has grown up to be a young woman who has the world’s attention with a voice on very adult issues. Her recent interview in Out magazine painted the picture of a young woman coming into her own with a desire to use her influence to change the world for youth.

As the parent of a transgender 9-year-old girl, I was excited to share that Miley is very aware of gender issues and embraces a life free from the boxes we traditionally put people into. From the Out Magazine article:

“Miley says she already spent a lot of time struggling with traditional gender expectations–and being resentful that she was a girl. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she clarifies. “I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

My daughter didn’t know who Hannah Montana was (we missed that by a few years) but she was very aware of who Miley Cyrus was. I wish I could have captured the grin that spread across her face when I shared the news with her. Though my daughter identifies strongly as a female, I have a heart for gender-fluid individuals and feel that they are desperately underrepresented and face even more barriers. I’m so happy that Miley has been open and rather candid about her wish not to be put into a binary box.

Thank you, Miley. I am truly impressed with your work and I’m thrilled that my daughter can call you a role model.

Yep, I just said that. And meant it.
