Carrie Fisher Sent A Cow's Tongue To Producer Who Assaulted Her Friend

If you don’t know about the incredible late Carrie Fisher, then let this interview where Fisher brought her french bulldog on TV with her tell you everything you need to know.

In a recent interview with MIXfm radio station based out of Tucson, Arizona, Director Heather Ross recounted a time when Carrie Fisher stood up for her.

The two were good friends, and Ross had shared with Fisher that she was allegedly sexually assaulted by an Oscar winning producer. So when Fisher was visiting Sony Picture Studios one day and knew that the producer was going to be there, she got revenge on behalf of her pal, by sending a strong warning that involved a severed cow tongue and a Tiffany box.

You can hear Ross recount the story here:

That’s right, Fisher went full Corleone on the producer.

Twitter is understandably in love with the story.

And honestly, this just keeps adding to her legend.

It’s not often that an actor surpasses the awesomeness of the characters that they portray on screen. For Carrie Fisher to somehow be even cooler than Princess Leia is truly a feat, but she managed to pull it off.

And that’s truly admirable. Also, with all of Hollywood speaking out against sexual predators now, anyone want to place bets that more and more gross men are going to get Fishered for their behavior? (h/t page six)

This Teen Stopped Her Friend From Committing Suicide And Today They're Married

Someone on Quora asked, “What is one moment in your life you thought could only happen in a movie?” and one of the answers, by Kevin Walsh, was especially astonishing and romantic. “I can’t not answer this,” he wrote.

“Once upon a time I was 13 at a summer camp and the prettiest girl I’d ever seen walked right up to me and said ‘black is a good color on you.’ No idea why,” he wrote. “We chatted and became friends, exchanged AIM screen names (it was the time) and stayed in touch for a while.”

“We fell off each others’ radar some time in high school, but I can promise you that not a day went by that I didn’t think about that girl. Even now I’m not sure I can say why – something about her just stayed with me.”

“In my senior year I went through some dumb high school stuff that seemed earth-shattering at the time, and fell hard into depression,” he continued. “I resolved to take my own life, wrote a note and went to where I planned to end things.”

“Somewhere between 5 and 10 seconds before I would have committed suicide, my phone rang. I checked the caller ID – I couldn’t die not knowing. It was a number I didn’t recognize, so I picked up and it was her.”

“I asked her what was up and she said she just felt like she had to call me. At that point it had been a year since we had spoken, and at that moment she just had to call. Long story short, she pried, I spilled the beans and she talked me out of it. I mean she literally said ‘What? Don’t do that’ And that was that.”

“She made me promise to call her the next day, and we hung up. That night I started writing the words which, ten years later, I’d propose with,” he said.

Walsh told Buzzfeed that talking to someone about his suicidal thoughts helped him. “There is power in saying it out loud. There’s a good chance that the moment it comes out of your mouth you’ll realize it isn’t what you want at all,” said Walsh. 

If you, or someone you know, need someone to talk to, you can call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

This Boy Was Worried His Friend At School Was Hungry So He Asked His Mom To Pack An Extra Lunch

In an era where we’re inundated with negative headlines, it’s no surprise that optimism about the future isn’t at an all time high.

We’re cynical and jaded. Simply put, it’s easy to forget that there’s still some good out there.

But, as we learned from one recent heart-warming story, It turns out there’s even some good in MIDDLE SCHOOLERS… And we’d completely written them off as hormonal little sociopaths. 

Think again!

At the beginning of her son Dylan’s school year, volleyball coach Josette Duran uploaded the following picture to Facebook: 

“Dylan explained there was a boy who sits by himself and eats only a fruit cup,” the mom from Albuquerque, New Mexico, told Us Magazine. “He said he didn’t think the friend had enough money to buy lunch.”

After that conversation, 14-year-old Dylan brought two lunches to school each day. “It just became normal,” Duran said. 

Later, Duran learned the child’s mother had lost her job and struggled to pay for lunches — a problem Duran herself understands. It was only a few years ago that she and Dylan were homeless and struggling to eat. 

“We were living out of my car, hotels and on friends’ couches,” she said. She refused to let the boy’s mother reimburse her for the lunches. 

This week, Duran and her son are receiving more national attention after she did an interview with local news outlet KCCI. It has since gone viral on Facebook. 

She even worked with the volleyball team she coaches to raise $ 200 for the school cafeteria to ensure that no child goes hungry during the day. 

“We paid up all the past due accounts for all the kids that need lunch,” she said. “So now no one in that school owes any lunch money to anybody and everyone can eat.”

The video has been viewed 15 million times and received thousands of comments…. Mostly about how people’s faith in humanity is somewhat restored.

Duran, thankful for the outpouring of love and support, posted this video in response. 

And, she’s still humbled by the whole thing. Lesson of the day: let’s live our lives more like Duran and her son, Dylan. 

Turns out we have a lot to learn from 14-year-olds. (h/t us magazine)

19 People Explain Why They Prefer Having A Friend With Benefits Over A Relationship

There are varying degrees to any relationship we all hold nowadays. Sometimes, we split the type of relationship we keep with certain folks and get the full experience of interacting with one pleasant person by keeping them in rotation. I do this with different groups of friends, and do everything in my power to make sure that none of them ever meet to keep everything in balance.

Recent years has seen a movement that has existed for ages be named and become more popular. FWBs, or friends with benefits, are exactly what they sound like. They’re people that are cool to hang with and simultaneously get physically intimate with, sans post copulating issues.

Some people are too busy to keep a relationship healthy, or are no longer interested in having one at all after one too many negative experiences, but still have certain primal needs that still need to be addressed. There are plenty of reasons to go this route, but here are 19 of them from people that already chose to stick with the FWB lifestyle, at least for the time being.
