After an autopsy revealed Michael Brown was shot 6 times, Ferguson once again descended into chaos
The ongoing situation in Ferguson, Mo. quickly worsened again this weekend after a few days of relative calm. Tensions escalated significantly on Sunday as police used tear gas violently dispersed hundreds of angry protesters marching towards a police command center — two hours before a midnight curfew was scheduled to go into place. Missouri’s Gov. Jay Nixon said on Monday morning that he would send the National Guard to Ferguson to restore calm.
And here we see what Dean Ambrose looks like during an exorcism.

Allison and Jamie thank Phoenix for being badass, then discuss Gavin McInness’ “leave of absence,” updates on Ferguson, including Darren Wilson, the officer who killed Mike Brown, the feds ordering an independent autopsy, and the media’s obsession with looting when other stuff is happening in Ferguson.

Some Twitter feeds from residents of Ferguson state that white kids claiming to be anarchists threw the molotovs (and supplied some to black protesters), were shooting guns and/or fireworks at police, and also assaulting black protesters, committing vandalism, and looting.

Homer and Lisa’s relationship is one of my favourite things ever. He spent this entire episode trying to convince Lisa that she was beautiful, and he insisted to Marge that he wasn’t just saying it as a father, he genuinely believed that Lisa was the most beautiful girl in the world. Not to mention the fact that this episode ripped the shit out of the idea of child beauty pageants and how the self esteem of girl’s is diminished in general.

This is what it’s like to be a minority in america.
Talk about making history:
Paige Became the youngest Divas champion at the age of 21 the RAW after WM. Her first RAW.
Became a 2 time Divas champion on her 22nd birthday at her first ever SummerSlam.
Both times against the same woman, who was the longest reigning Divas champ.
I don’t know whether to be happy or confused about this. I had just made a bunch of WWE posts… And well this happens?
That must be the coolest thing ever…
