We're not sure what you did this weekend, and we're not sure if we even wanna know (for legal reasons) but did you watch the Olympics at all?

No?!?

Well maybe you should know that the USA has 60 total medals (28 of them gold), which is one behind China who has 61 (with 30 gold) and ahead of the UK who is in third with 37 overall (16 gold).

Where did all these new medals come from?

Well a lot as happened!

Palin Supporters Try To Amend Wikipedia Page On Paul Revere With Her Version Of Events!

palin-supporters-try-to-amend-wikipedia-page-on-paul-revere-with-her-version-of-events

It was only a matter of time!

Last week, Sarah Palin graced us all with her fascinating re-interpretation of what happened during Paul Revere's midnight ride, which apparently involved ringing bells and "warning the British," and we realized that we weren't sure what we were more afraid of: the fact that she will most likely run for President or the fact that there are many people who would actually vote for her!

Unfortunately, the former Governor of Alaska's supporters are already hard at work proving our speculation right, because they've apparently flooded Wikipedia page of Paul Revere, and are attempting to RE-WRITE history so Miz Palin's version of events is accurate!

Ha!

Check out the discussion between the website's editors and Palin fans:

In the article on Paul Revere, someone has added false information in an effort to support Sarah Palin's FALSE claims about Paul Revere.
"Accounts differ regarding the method of alerting the colonists; the generally accepted position is that the warnings were verbal in nature, although one disputed account suggested that Revere rang bells during his ride.[8][9]" This must be removed as it is a LIE designed to mislead. dj

Dajames (talk) 14:46, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

A lie? If you follow Wikipedia's rules, we must maintain a WP:NEUTRAL position, representing the mainstream position as well as disputed versions. I think the addition represents this fairly — the mainstream position is that Revere's warnings were verbal, but there are differing accounts that the warnings were done with bells — with two sources: WDHD television plus a live interview, with a highly influential US politician relating these facts.–

Tomwsulcer (talk) 14:50, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Done. Thank you, I removed the content not backed by a reliable source. –CutOffTies (talk) 14:52, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I kindly remind people that it's not our job here at Wikipedia to decide what's true, but to report what reliable sources say, such as the LA Times, WDHD TV in Boston, numerous others. And they quoted an American politician saying that bells were used. –Tomwsulcer (talk) 15:09, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Tomwsulcer - You should be kindly reminded that it’s not your job to debase Sarah Palin’s wiki page with (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talk:Sarah_Palin) your version of the occurrence for political reasons. The left leaning bias on Wiki is well known, but these types attacks are over the top.

Mk 71.228.77.211 (talk) 20:08, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

It's not the LA Times that's questionable as a reliable source, it's Palin herself. Even if the Times (& others) quoted her accurately, her off-hand, poorly-informed view doesn't belong here, per WP:UNDUE, and I have reverted.

Hertz1888 (talk) 15:30, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Sarah Palin is a former governor of Alaska as well as a presidential candidate of one of the two national parties in the United States. Her account of Paul Revere's famous ride has achieved national attention from most mainstream media — LA Times, CNN, you name it. There are numerous reliable sources quoted her exact words on this subject. This article has HUGE attention (55K readers in one day) as a result. Clearly, there should be some mention given its obvious importance. And I remind people, kindly, that it's not up to us contributors to determine who is and isn't a "poorly informed view" and to try to determine truth. Rather, Wikipedia is about verifiability.

–Tomwsulcer (talk) 15:37, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Here's Palin's remark via the LA Times & CNN: Sarah Palin on Paul Revere's ride
It doesn't tell the reader looking for information on Paul Revere anything useful. Vice Presidential candidate, please.

Hertz1888 (talk) 15:44, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

I agree with Hertz's edit, also please read wp:RECENT for yet another reason why this has no place here. –CutOffTies (talk) 16:16, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Paul Revere may have rang some bells on his ride, but does any mainstream historian believe that Paul Revere had any intent to warn or scare the British in any way? I have never heard this, except from Palin. All accounts I have read say that Revere and Dawes were trying their best to avoid being noticed by the British, who would likely capture them immediately if found.

–Westwind273 (talk) 15:49, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

The Lexington church apparently was one which rang its bell. [[4]]. Is all this of any great import at all? Collect (talk) 21:18, 5 June 2011 (UTC)

Ha! Oh maaaaan.

This is just HIGHlarious!

Frankly, we're of the viewpoint that pretty much anything that comes out of Sarah Palin's mouth should be ignored and/or FORGOTTEN as quickly as possible, so throwing her 'Drunk History' version of events onto that man's Wikipedia page seems pretty pointless!

But hey! At least it was good for some LOLz!

What do U think? Should Palin's version of events be available for slacker high school/college kids to use as a source when writing last-minute papers?

How Much $$$ Is The Cast Of Jersey Shore Pulling For Appearances?

Filed under: Business BlitzSnookiReality TV

jersey-shore-second-season_.jpg

As we're sure you've noticed, the cast of Jersey Shore is in demand right now, and these guidos and guidettes are smart enough to know to strike while the iron is hot, and therefore are pulling in some serious ca$h!

The Situation is apparently pulling in the most, with his appearance on Dancing With The Stars earning him $100,000!

DJ Pauly D charges $20,000 to DJ events, and Ronnie requires $12,000 - $20,000 for party hosting!

Meanwhile, our beloved Snooki Snickers pulls in $20,000 to simply walk the red carpet, while Sammi "Sweetheart," Vinny and Angelina pull in their respective $15,000, $6,000 and $5,000 for club appearances! And JWoww is apparently pulling in some big bucks with her Filthy Couture fashion line!

Out of control!

But we can't say we blame them! Who knows when their 15 minutes will be up?!

Make the money while you can, bitches!

Ticketmaster Listens To The People, Makes Changes

Filed under: Music MinuteKanye West

ticketmasterkanyee.jpg

Here’s some inneresting news that we’re kind of happy with.

Ticketmaster has pretty much become the “go-to” company for live events, but people have been complaining, so they’ve decided to make some changes. Here’s what they’ll be doing differently:

-They’re going to tell us final ticket prices much earlier on in the ticket ordering process. Also, they’ll let us know the full cost of our tickets upfront, without blindsiding us with extra service fees later on. Same amount of money, but less time and frustration, which is def cool.

-We’ll be given a 3-day return policy. Looks like up until a week before any given show, we’ll have three days to change our minds about the tickets for a full refund. At first, this will apply to Live Nation venues, but they’re going to try to expand it to as many venues as possible.

-They’ve created a new online environment for customers, Ticketology, where they’ll keep us updated with policy changes, industry news, and related news.

We’re feeling these changes, and we’re liking this trend of people & companies aiming to please the fans. First, Kanye West stops sleeping to drop new tracks for us, and now Ticketmaster is totally revamping themselves. We wonder who’s going to appease us next!

What do U think of Ticketmaster’s policy changes?
