      Republican Greg Gianforte (right) welcomes Donald Trump Jr., the president's son, onto the stage at a rally in East Helena, Mont., on May 11. Gianforte, a businessman, is embracing his party's president in his race for the state's open congressional seat.

      The Montana special congressional race was roiled on the eve of Thursday's vote after GOP nominee Greg Gianforte allegedly "body slammed" a reporter and was subsequently cited by local authorities.

      The Gallatin County Sheriff's Office announced it was charging Gianforte with misdemeanor assault after "multiple interviews and an investigation." The candidate was given a citation, the office said, and would appear in county court sometime before June 7.

      Trump Casts Shadow Over Tightening Montana Special Election

      The chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee called the incident "out of character" for Gianforte. Steve Stivers' statement added, "We all make mistakes" and the election is "bigger than any one person."

      House Speaker Paul Ryan said in his weekly news conference, "There's never a call for physical altercations. ... So that is wrong and it should not have happened."

      He added that if Gianforte wins, "he has been chosen ... by the people of Montana who their congressman is going to be. I'm going to let the people of Montana decide who they want as their representative."

      According to audio posted by Ben Jacobs, a political reporter with The Guardian, he was attempting to ask Gianforte a question, ahead of a campaign event in Bozeman, about the Congressional Budget Office's scoring of the Republican health care bill, which showed that 23 million more people would be uninsured in 2026 if the bill were enacted.

      In the recording, Jacobs can be heard asking Gianforte about the CBO score. Gianforte says he doesn't have time and directs Jacobs to talk to his spokesman; then there is a scuffle and a crash.
    I hope this asshole doesn't win!

    Different Kind of "Holy Rollers"
    Church turns out to be sex club

    Most churches can be thought of as social meeting places, a structure where congregations come together and share a common bond. A “church” in Tennessee, though, has taken togetherness to a whole new level. Nashville authorities say a building registered as a church has actually been hosting late-night swingers parties, where lewd acts have been taking place, according to a report by NewsChannel 5

    We had a couple of those when I was running a coffee shop. They were designed well except for the metallurgical part, they would corrode and if you have a full co2 cart in it when it happens...

    I guess I'm just an old-fashioned, take-matters-into-my-own-hands kinda' guy.

    PornHub now has videos that synchronize with connected sex toys
    PornHub has figured out the ideal solution in the form of interactive videos that synchronize with a connected sex toy.

    PornHub’s launch partners include Fleshlight and Kiiroo, and there will be a new category on the website that contains videos that can be synced to a toy. Depending on what’s happening in the video, the toys will simulate the action with pulses — removing the need to perform your own manual labor.

    Stop eating your damn placentas
    The U.S. has the worst rate of maternal death in the developed world and 60 percent of those deaths are totally preventable. When you can see that your health care system is objectively failing many folks in your situation, there's certainly logic in exploring all your options.

    But for goodness' sake, please stop eating placentas.

    F*cking morons....loved the reference to GOOP and Paltrow who, IMO, epitomizes this:

    Much like the paleo diet, the spread of this health fad has largely been driven by upper middle class white people. The two trends also share a purported basis in evolutionary biology, a GOOP-like sense of superiority, and a total lack of scientific evidence.
    I believe that the reason some animals eat the placenta is to remove it as an attraction to predators.

    Get high by snorting...chocolate?

    A new product on the market claims to give people a legal, drug-free way to get a boost of energy.
    Oh, and it's snortable.

    Coco Loko is a chocolate powder that is absorbed up the nose to give its users a euphoric high.
