Professional Bodybuilder, Rich Piana in a medically induced coma, fighting for his life

No.167207 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Rich Piana, a professional bodybuilder, is “alive and fighting for his life,” according to his fitness model girlfriend, Chanel Jansen. Piana was found unresponsive in his Florida home after falling and hitting his head, TMZ reported. Chanel attempted to give the 46-year-old bodybuilder CPR. When medical personnel arrived, they rushed Piana to the hospital. It was here that he was placed in a medically induced coma.

He revealed his fitness regime consists of a massive steroid cycle, nine meals a day, a series of workouts not fit for the average human being and, according to one profile, “protein shakes big enough to drown a toddler in”.

While there was no official report that Piana has overdosed, several publications have reported this as being the cause of his collapse, according to International Business Times. None have been officially verified.

Piana is open about his steroid use and once said it was necessary to compete in bodybuilding.

AirDropping penis pics is the latest horrifying subway trend

No.168087 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
There’s a new iPhone craze on the subway, and it’s not the latest Candy Crush update.

New York women have discovered that creepy men are using the iPhone AirDrop app to send them photos of their privates while on the same train.

Since more straphangers using the MTA are carrying advanced iPhones and awareness of the AirDrop app has increased, local straphangers have started noticing a troubling trend first reported in London in 2015.

Britta Carlson, 28, was riding the uptown 6 train to a concert on July 27 when a mysterious message popped up on her smartphone.

“iPhone 1 would like to share a note with you,” read the note sent at 6:51 p.m. She hit “Accept” and was horrified by what she saw. “It was just a huge close-up picture of a disgusting penis,” said Carlson, of Bushwick, Brooklyn. The message was titled “Straw” and was sent by an anonymous stranger.

“It really felt like someone had actually just flashed me.”

Carlson clutched the phone to her chest and frantically scanned the subway car for the pervert but couldn’t place him.

In order for pervs to send lewd photos, iPhone owners must have their AirDrop setting on “Everyone,” instead of “Contacts Only” or “Receiving Off.”

The app, which was released for iPhones in 2013, uses “Contacts Only” as the default setting and doesn’t work with Androids or Windows phones. The victim must also be within Bluetooth range, which is approximately 328 feet.

People often forget to switch the setting off from “Everyone,” or don’t realize they have turned it on.

Carlson had her AirDrop switched to “Everyone” because she used it to send photos at work.

“It never even crossed my mind that someone may use it to send stuff like that,” she admitted.

Frankie Navisch, 35, had just gotten off a train at Penn Station when an invitation to open “Eduardo’s picture” — with a preview photo of a man’s junk — popped up on his screen.

Question regarding Charlottesville

No.168342 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
Hello,
I have seen so tweets and mainstream news about Charlottesville. I condemn those neo nazis / white supremacists / what ever they wanna be called. USA is a land of immigrants coming from different pat of the world which kinda "have stolen" the lands of Native American. That's why I think that's super stupid to say something like "USA should be white only / foreigners should leave".
I always hear that the first amendment of US constitution is freedom of speech. I don't know about their legislation, I only know a little bit about French one which allows freedom of speech as long as it's not about hate and does not create any source of violence.
So I have a simple question, even if those "neo nazis" seem to be the worst bastards on earth from some people point of view. Does that allow them to use violence? Or to use their position in order to revenge? Let me explain: I've seen some pictures of rally attendants being punch, people were happy to share that on Twitter and to make Idiana Jones jokes. I also read that some companies like Airbnb http://gizmodo.com/airbnb-won-t-put-a-roof-over-the-heads-of-nazis-1797585928 were banning the members who went to the rally. So who are the fascists here? Because I believe in one Justice which can be only provided by the authorities (e.g. the police or a judge). Since when is it cool to make his own justice because you disagree with someone? and why is it okay to publicly bully them?
Of course the mother fucker who rushed into people with his car must be punished by the justice, same for others violent people. Again, I don't wanna defend those guys or their ideas. I neither want to make them look like victims. I just worry about this "politically correct's dictatorship" which make people loose their rights because another person disagree with them.

March of white supremacists at University of Virginia ends in skirmishes

No.167199 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Chanting “White lives matter!” “You will not replace us!” and “Jews will not replace us!” several hundred white nationalists and white supremacists carrying torches marched in a parade through the University of Virginia campus last night.

The fast-paced march was made up almost exclusively of men in their 20s and 30s, though there were some who looked to be in their mid-teens.

Beginning a little after 9:30 p.m., the march lasted 15 to 20 minutes before ending in skirmishes when the marchers were met by a small group of counterprotesters at the base of a statue of Thomas Jefferson, the university’s founder.

A short brawl erupted after at least one of the counterprotesters apparently deployed a chemical spray, which affected the eyes of a dozen or so marchers. It left them floundering and seeking medical assistance.
