Tattooing is a huge part of the prison culture in many country's prison systems. The tattoos have a variety of meanings from simple gang affiliation to complex codes that explain a lot about the individual wearing the tattoos. Some tattoo meanings change from location to location or from race to race. Check out the gallery below to learn a little bit more about prison tattoos.
Yesterday, we introduced you to Rudy, a panhandler who was lying bout being a homeless veteran. Free Beer and Hot Wings sent Producer Joe down to the corner that Rudy was working on with a huge sign that said "LIAR ->" Rudy was not amused. Since Joe's stunt, Rudy has moved to a different corner and is hopefully getting little to no money now. But, the story doesn't end there.
Yesterday, Free Beer and Hot Wings touched on a news report about panhandlers from WZZM 13 in West Michigan. In the news report, several panhandlers around town were exposed as liars. People were claiming to be veterans and homeless even though they were not. This didn't sit well with the guys, so they decided to send Producer Joe out to visit a panhandler named Rudy. Rudy is a non-veteran claiming to be a veteran.
Panhandling seems to be more and more common with the current state of the economy. If you live near an urban area you will likely see someone on the corner of an intersection with a cardboard sign asking for money. As it turns out, a lot of these people are not actually homeless. A recent report by WZZM 13 in West Michigan discovered that a lot of these people are panhandling because it pays well.

Say hello to the father of all video game consoles, the Magnavox Odyssey. Marvel at it's glowing boxes and transparent screen overlays. Ponder why the console comes with dice, chips, and playing cards. Be wowed by the poorly designed controllers that look more like an 8-track than an input device. Behold! The Magnavox Odyssey!
My grandmother recently turned 101 years old and all she wanted for her birthday was some chocolate and stationary. Well at least that is what she said, you never know what could be lurking in our geriatric citizens' minds.
A new skin treatment crawled into Japanese clinics. It's called a "snail facial" and it is exactly how it sounds. A professional will place snails all over your face and they will crawl around applying their goo to your skin. Supposedly the treatment is hailed as an elixir for youthful and beautiful skin. The slime they leave behind will have positive effects on your skin. Right...
As Shaffee Abraham has said a hundred times: "Nickelback makes nothing but hits." This rings true when you play the songs 'How You Remind Me' and 'Someday' at the same time. The Nickelback song structure is so good that the only way to beat a previous Nickelback hit is too emulate it exactly. And who better to emulate Nickelback, than Nickelback. Am I right? Yeah, I'm right.
