Grindr Pastor Reportedly Advised Gay Teen To Kill Himself

by Rich Juzwiak

The potential for anti-gay Pastor Matt Makela’s hypocrisy is apparently sky high—all the way to heaven, even. Jennifer Kish told Saginaw, Michigan’s WNEM that the disgraced pastor, who was exposed for soliciting gay sex on Grindr earlier this week , told her 17-year-old son Tyler that “if he was going to go to hell for being gay that he might as well go to hell by committing suicide.”

We Got Buckminster Fuller's FBI File

by Matt Novak on Paleofuture, shared by Max Read to Gawker

Buckminster Fuller was a world-renowned architect, math-obsessed designer, and affable weirdo. He died in 1983, but Fuller is still remembered fondly today for his geodesic domes and his three-wheeled cars. Despite extensive historical interest in the man, his FBI file has never been made public. Until now.

"We gave Rush'n Attack a 5.0 Fun Factor because Soviet policy in Afghanistan is an affront to the Lord." The signs were always there...

This morning, the U.S. government released a list of PDF books and other media found inside Osama bin Laden’s compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan. Alongside an issue of al-Qaeda’s online magazine Inspire and U.S. articles about terrorism and foreign policy was a copy David Ray Griffin’s The New Pearl Harbor: Disturbing Questions About the Bush Administration and 9/11, a book that argues that 9/11 was an inside job.

The White House Is Archiving Every Tweet Begging @POTUS for Sex

by Ashley Feinberg

Earlier today, the President of the United States and the holder of the highest office in the land, Barack Obama, debuted the first, official Twitter account run by the President and the President alone. Because of how the internet works, hundreds of people immediately asked the President to please sit on my face, daddy. And because of how the Presidential Records Act works, every single one of those tweets, from “spank me” to “fist me,” is getting filed away in the official White House archives.

My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3am Every Day is a simple, silly and fun game that sees you playing a mischievous cat, knocking things over and making a racket until your loving owner wakes up.

Sure cats can be as quiet as a mouse, but where’s the fun in that?  Your owner has been asleep for a whole three hours, it’s high time you woke him up!  Meow, knead and knock stuff over until he wakes up – he’ll probably be thankful for you getting him up so early!

With it’s fun premise and charming visuals, My Garbage Cat Wakes Me Up At 3am Every Day is a very short and pointless game that will make you smile.  Silly, dumb and adorable – much like a real cat!

Amtrak Does Not Want to Hear Your Thoughts on Amtrak Today

Have you ridden the Amtrak lately? Perhaps you were asked to participate in a survey regarding your experience. If so, please disregard. Following Tuesday night’s accident, Amtrak sent out emails to various customers asking them to please keep all extremely rude comments to themselves.

The following was taken from a Facebook user who received the email:

Dear [REDACTED],

We recently asked you to participate in a survey on Amtrak. In light of a Northeast Regional accident which occurred near Philadelphia on Tuesday night, we no longer ask that you participate in the survey.

Sincerely,

Amtrak doesn’t want to hear it—not today, maybe not ever.

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

by Jordan Sargent on Defamer, shared by Caity Weaver to Gawker

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

The people have spoken, and they want muscles. In the great American debate over which version of Chris Pratt—dadbod or rippedbod—is hotter, the winner is clear: of the just over 20,000 votes, 61 percent went to rippedbod, making dadbod something like the Walter Mondale of body types. Below are demographic stats breaking down Pratt bod preferences by age, gender, and location.* (Botswana: dadbod!)

*The age and gender stats were self-reported by those who chose to fill out the information, while the location data was culled by Qzzr. This is extremely scientific.

First, by gender:

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

Haha, men want to be lazy and quasi-fat, whereas women want men to be toned and fit. I’m glad this has been cleared up.

Age:

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

Putting aside self-reported 0-12 year olds (if you are that young, please consult a dadbod or guardian before visiting Gawker), as well as all those age groups with fewer than 100 respondents, preference for dadbod increased with age, jumping more than 10 percentage points from the youngest 100+ bracket (18-24 year olds) to the oldest (45-54 year olds). Among this latter category, a nearly 50/50 split favored rippedbod by a single percentage point. If you’re a 13-17 year old with dadbod: it gets better!

Now, the United States:

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

Here, the more reddish the state, the more it slanted—down and out and spreading on all sides—toward dadbod. A particular fondness for dadbod was concentrated in a pocket of rural America that includes West Virginia, Indiana, Kentucky, Arkansas and Missouri. Delaware, Maine, and Hawaii also went for dadbod. What does it mean?

Our most heavily rippedbod state was South Dakota, which, sure. New York was our bellwether, splitting, like the overall results, 61/39 in favor of dadbod.

Pratt’s homestate of Minnesota was fairly evenly split.

Now let’s take a look at the world at large:

Dadbod vs. Rippedbod: The Shocking Chris Pratt Results

While the bright red countries were all unanimously in favor of dadbod, each of them had fewer than 3 total votes. The countries with the highest voter totals outside of the U.S.—the United Kingdom, Germany, and Australia—all slanted heavily in favor of rippedbod. Of France’s rather paltry 77 votes, 70 percent were in favor of rippedbod, but you weren’t gonna land a French lady anyway.

If you would like to mess around in the stats module, you can do so by progressing past the voting stage of the following poll:

Thanks for sharing your opinions on dadbods with us, for hopefully the last time.

How a One-Armed Ronda Rousey Grappled With the World in Rio

by Ronda Rousey on Jezebel, shared by Leah Beckmann to Gawker

How a One-Armed Ronda Rousey Grappled With the World in Rio

I have been booed in thirty countries. I have been booed following UFC victories. I’m more used to being booed by a crowd than I am being cheered. I have never been a fan favorite. Pretty much my entire competitive career has been defined by people hoping to see me lose.

In the UFC, I’ve embraced the role of the villain. I don’t shy away from controversy. I don’t hold back when it comes to speaking my mind. That doesn’t always endear me to the masses. In a world that loves to root for the underdog, I’m always the favorite—and I always win.

But there are moments where no matter who you are or what you represent, people will be so impressed by what they see that they will forget everything else. If the performance is great enough, nothing else matters.

My mom says that to be the best in the world, you need to be able to beat anyone twice on your worst day. She’s right, of course. But some days you wake up and you just know no one is going to fuck with you. That’s how I woke up in Rio de Janeiro the morning of the 2007 World Championships. I woke up ready to kill somebody.

We had arrived in Rio a few days before, checking into El Motel—the Brazilian equivalent of Super 8. Some of my teammates were complaining about the rooms, but I didn’t need anything too fancy and, unlike at most tournaments, USA Judo was at least paying for my room.

The day of competition I got up early so I could take the first shuttle to the weigh-in. I checked myself on my scale: seventy kilos on the dot. I was close, but was going to make weight without issue. On my way down to the lobby, I ran into Valerie Gotay. Valerie was lighter than me and had already fought.

“Did you hear what happened?” she asked.

I had no idea what she was talking about.

“Some guy at sixty-six kilos was running last night to make weight and he got stabbed,” she said.

“Oh shit,” I replied.

“Speaking of which, I’m heading out,” I said.

“You know about the scale, right?” she asked.

My eyes narrowed.

“No, what?” These words right before a weigh-in are never followed by good news.

“The ones we have are light,” she said, meaning the US teams’ scales were giving a reading that was less than one’s actual weight. The official scale was .4 kilos heavier, meaning I was nearly a pound overweight. If you step on the scale at the weigh-ins and miss weight, you can’t compete. You don’t get a second chance.

“You have got to be fucking kidding me!” I shouted, throwing my bag on the hallway floor. Several heads in the lobby turned.

I started to head back to my room.

“Where are you going?” Valerie asked.

“To my room!” I shouted over my shoulder. “It looks like I’m running to the weigh-ins, incompetent USA Judo motherfuckers.”

I stormed into my room and pulled on my plastics, a pair of sweats made out of thin plastic. The suit prevents sweat from evaporating, keeping your body warm and making you sweat more. Then I layered my regular sweats over and pulled up my hood and headed back through the lobby, past the shuttle bus waiting to take the athletes to the weigh-in, and started running the mile to the tournament host hotel for the weigh-in.

It was September in Rio, and the sun was already beating down. Sweat dripped down my face. I could feel the hot condensation building up on my skin inside my plastics. I was running fast, when it dawned on me this was the exact stretch of road where the sixty-six kilo guy had been stabbed the night before.

If anyone tries to stab me today, they are gonna die, I thought. I was not in the mood to take shit from anyone.

I had turned a corner when I saw a sign for the host hotel and a sprawling nine-star resort spread out behind it.

“No fucking way,” I said out loud.

This was the hotel where the USA Judo executives had booked themselves. I ran up the long manicured drive to the lobby doors. A burst of cool air hit me in the face as the bellman pulled the door open. The weigh-in room was not yet open, but there was a scale in a room across the lobby where athletes could check their weight. I walked in and pulled off my sweats and wet plastics. I stepped on the scale. 70.2.

How a One-Armed Ronda Rousey Grappled With the World in Rio

I growled. There is no worse physical sensation than putting on plastics again after you have already sweated in them. It is like pulling on a wet garbage bag, only it’s not dripping with water, it’s dripping with sweat and it sticks to your skin. I pulled my sweats over my plastics, headed back outside into the beating hot tropical sun and ran down Shank Road again, then I stormed back inside.

As I walked back through the lobby, I saw the Japanese girl in my division coming out of the elevator. The Japanese team was staying here at the Hotel Deluxe Riviera Ritz. She was walking with two coaches, who had undoubtedly watched hours of her opponents’ footage, which they were likely discussing with her at that exact moment. She was wearing her sponsored designer sweats with her matching sponsored designer bag. But what pushed me over the fucking edge was that she was carrying a little tea kettle with a matching sponsored designer tea kettle warmer slipped over it.

I about lost my mind.

USA Judo had barely provided us matching sweats, so I sure as shit didn’t have a matching tea kettle warmer, and even if I had, I wouldn’t have it with me because it would have been back at El Motel and I would have to run back along Shank Road to go get the goddamn thing. The hairs on the back of my neck were standing up as every muscle in my body tensed. I caught myself grinding my teeth. My fists were balled up so tightly that my nails were digging into my palms.

You’re my first match, I said to her in my head. I’ll deal with you then.

At the unofficial scale, I peeled off my plastics for a second time: seventy kilos. Now I had to go weigh in across the lobby. I looked at my pile of sweats on the floor. There was no way I was putting them back on. I wrapped myself in a towel and marched into the lobby. It was filled with athletes, tournament officials, coaches, referees, a few tourists. All heads turned as I passed by. I held my towel with one hand and looked straight ahead. If I could have walked through there with my middle finger up in the air and not have risked getting in trouble for violating some tournament rules of conduct, I would have.

I walked into the room where the official weigh-ins were underway. Because it was the world championships, the organizers had everyone lined up. I was near the end of the line. I stared down each girl who walked by on her way out the door after making weight, making a mental note to destroy her when the tournament began. Finally, it was my turn. I weighed in, got some water, took the shuttle back to the hotel to get my things for the tournament and got ready to make these bitches pay.

A favorite joke in judo circles is the Americans always have the worst draw, because it’s better to have an easy fight first and get warmed up. People always laugh when an American draws a Japanese in the first round. Judo started in Japan, and the Japanese take judo very seriously. It is not that hard to be the best in the United States in judo. To be the best in Japan, you have to be solid. Japan almost always dominates. The draw is posted at the coaches’ meeting the night before the tournament starts. Some people will map out their entire potential pool. I just took it one match at a time, never looking ahead to see who I might face.

“Gonna have to beat ’em all anyway,” I figured.

My match against the Japanese girl was early, so the stadium was only about a quarter filled. Still, I could hear the Japanese cheering section in full effect. Their cheer coordinator shouted something out, and as always, the Japanese fans returned the cheer. I never let the crowd impact me, but the crowd often influences the referees. I always made a point to gauge the atmosphere in order to know what the referees might be thinking, then I tuned the noise out.

I stared across the mat at her.

Fuck your tea kettle warmer, I thought.

I made the match a brawl, which is the worst possible matchup for a Japanese fighter. They’re very traditional and focused on proper technique. I was hustling on the ground, spinning her off balance, throwing her all over the place.

I wiped the mat with her, throwing her twice and winning by a waza-ari (half-point) and a yuko (roughly a quarter-point). She was scoreless.

Next, I had Ylenia Scapin, a two-time Olympic medalist from Italy. We had never met before, so I didn’t know what to expect. The second you grab someone you feel the strength on them; it was immediately apparent that she was the strongest chick I had ever faced. Strong fighters present a different set of challenges. It’s much harder to break grips against them. Their defense is a lot better.

Offensively, I wasn’t really scared of Scapin, but she was harder to grip with and harder to throw. Being strong doesn’t necessarily make an opponent more threatening, but it makes them more difficult to control.

I threw her for a waza-ari in the first minute of the match. She couldn’t score on me either.

Then, I had Mayra Aguiar from Brazil, the hometown favorite in the quarterfinal. The arena had been steadily filling up and was now closing in on three-quarters full. In contrast to the Japanese fans with their cheer coordinator, the Brazilian fans were the complete opposite. Unadulterated pandemonium. The Brazilians were the craziest, most passionate crowd I had ever experienced. They were blaring blow horns and flying flags. One section was covered by a massive Brazilian flag the fans were holding up.

They booed me as I walked onto the mat, chanting “You’re gonna die” in Portuguese. I noted the noise, assessing the impact it might have on the referees. I was going to have to win more definitively. Up against the roar of the crowd, I took her to the mat and pinned her for ippon with thirty seconds left on the clock. The Brazilian fans booed me viciously as I walked off the mat.

Rousey’s ippon against Aguiar. See the full fight here.

I had made it to the semifinal. It would be a matchup between me and Edith Bosch, the reigning world champion. She was a six-foot Dutch chick with an eight-pack. I looked like a hobbit next to her.

Bosch and I had fought for the first time at the German Open a month earlier. I was declared the winner of the match when she was disqualified for doing an illegal armbar on me. She had dislocated my elbow in the process.

If I had a nemesis during my time competing at seventy kilos, it was Edith Bosch. You know how in movies where the hero fights off like five guys and is taunting “Is that all you got?” then turns around to find himself eyeball to belly button with a giant? Edith Bosch is that giant.

I knew Bosch would be happy with the matchup. She thought she got an easy draw. I wanted to make sure this would be the last time she was ever glad about having to face me.

The referee said, “Hajime” (begin). And what does Bosch do? The exact same move that got her disqualified in Germany again. And again, she dislocated my elbow. Only this time, the referee didn’t see it.

I glanced at my limp elbow, then back at Bosch with a look that said, “Are you fucking kidding me?” I could not believe she had pulled this shit again. I could not believe she was going to get away with it. I looked back to the referee. Nothing.

I wanted to scream. But arguing was pointless. A shooting pain quickly brought me back into the moment. I had never forfeited a match in my life, and I sure as hell wasn’t going to quit in the semifinal of the world championship.

I braced myself. I tensed my left arm and took a deep breath. With my right hand, I grabbed my forearm just below the dislocated elbow and pushed as hard as I could. Pop. The joint snapped back into place. The manipulation hurt like a bitch, but as soon as my elbow was back where it belonged, the sharp pain dulled to a barely tolerable ache.

I glared across the mat at Bosch. She showed absolutely no remorse, which only made me angrier. Looking straight at her, I shook out my arm, and thought, Fuck you, bitch, I’m going to keep going.

Bosch scored on me about halfway through a five-minute match, putting me behind. She tried to avoid any contact with me over the next two minutes, hoping to stall long enough to run out the clock. Her plan was working.

There were thirty seconds left. I said like nineteen million prayers. I looked up toward the rafters and had what felt like an incredibly long conversation with God.

“Please, God, help me,” I pleaded. “Please help me figure this out, this one match.”

The clock was ticking down.

29 seconds. Please God. I went in for a grip.

28. Please God. Bosch pushed me off.

27. Please God. I went in to grab her again.

26. Please God. Bosch moved like she was going to attempt to throw me. 25. Please God. She did not have a chance in hell of throwing me.

24. Please God. I made my move. I timed it perfectly.

23. Please God. I grabbed Bosch, one-handed with the arm of the elbow she had dislocated.

22. Please God. I turned, the leverage pulling Bosch off the ground and over my head. She went sailing through the air, in front of God and everyone.

21. Please God. Bam! She landed on the ground on her back for ippon. I had won instantly.

20. Thank you, God!

Rousey’s ippon against Bosch. See the full fight here.

Bosch lay facedown on the mat for a moment, as if she could not believe she had lost.

The place exploded. The entire arena had been watching our fight, and everyone in the building lost their minds after seeing my David-and-Goliath moment. The whole crowd erupted, cheering for me.

The applause had nothing to do with who I was or where I was from. In that moment, they didn’t care—they had seen something amazing happen.

My match against Bosch was the only time I got cheered for in judo. It was the most exciting moment of my judo career, but the elation was short- lived as I tried to block out my throbbing elbow and my focus immediately shifted to the final.

I faced Gévrise Émane of France in the championship and got called for a bullshit penalty in the first minute, which put me immediately behind. She scored on me a few seconds later with a throw that was questionable at best as far as whether it was a legitimate scoring takedown. I scored on a throw halfway through the match, bringing me within a minor score of tying the match—that is until the referees conferred and reversed the decision giving the score to my opponent. Firmly ahead on points, she spent the rest of the match running from me. She got a stalling penalty with less than a minute to go, then sprinted away from me in the final seconds of the match.

The world championship had slipped through my fingers. Every time I closed my eyes, even to blink, I saw Émane throwing her arms in the air in jubilation. I had no one to blame but myself. I had let it come down to points. I had failed. It hurt to breathe.

After the competition had ended for the day, I walked up into the stands where the crowd had been cheering for me so loudly hours before. I had to call my mom back home, but I couldn’t do it yet. Making that call would require finding the strength to say: I lost. My gut twisted. I climbed to the very top of the seats. The arena was nearly empty. I settled myself at the end of a row of seats, up against a corner, pulled my knees up to my chest, and cried harder than I ever had since Dad died.
