This Is How You Meditate

I’ve heard meditation works wonders in keeping your mental awareness in check.

Now I’m not really sure this is how you meditate, but I’m also no expert in meditation. I usually restore to cussing out loud to fix things in my life.

After seeing this video…this is how I’ll be meditating from now on.

No Show Socks Are Considered Dad Socks Now? What?

I’m not shocked by this news. Mainly because fashion trends change, but this is silly.

Apparently no show socks are considered dad socks. While long socks…no matter what you’re wearing…is the in thing now. At least according to this video.

I don’t care who are…I secretly laugh a little on the inside when I see anyone wearing a long socks with shorts. It makes it look like you given up on fashion completely when you dress like this in public.

Plus…no wants the tan sock line on their legs. No one.

STUPID HILLBILLY NEWS: A Man Was Arrested 10 Times…In One Month

This seems like one of those social media “challenges,” where people try to do a crazy amount of stuff…like ride all the rides at Disney in one day and have to map out an elaborate timeline to make it happen.

There’s a 38-year-old guy in Fresno, California named Keith Chastain, who just got arrested for the 10th time…in just ONE MONTH.

The 10th arrest happened on Tuesday, when the police got a call about a man driving a stolen truck. They went out and nabbed Keith, but it could’ve been even easier. He told police he was on his way TO the police station to pick up his personal property when he was arrested.

That seems like a coincidence, but when this is your 10th arrest…picking up stuff from the police station is like a normal person going to the dry cleaners.

Keith got this 10th arrest in just under the gun…it was the 31st day since his initial arrest last month. Now to be clear, it does NOT sound like an intentionally planned feat.

He is facing 18 felonies and 15 misdemeanors…with an all kinds of charges including stealing six vehicles, DUI, vandalism, fraud, possession of a controlled substance, and more. 

Blake Shelton And Luke Bryan Are Professional Shit Talkers…And We Love That

Blake Shelton’s friendly rivalry with Luke Bryan continues on y’all.

Blake is currently on the road with his “Back To The Honky Tonk Tour”. During his shows he takes time to banter with fans on stage and he’s funny as hell.

During a recent stop in Birmingham, Alabama, he told the crowd he had lost his voice earlier in the day and that a doctor recommended he ask everyone in the house to sing along to his songs to spare his vocal cords.

Blake said, “I know what he’s talking about ’cause I’ve been to Luke Bryan concerts many times and people are signing every damn word to his songs,” adding, “but his songs are stupid!”

When You Can’t Reach The Straw In Your Drink While Driving…Try Tube Straws

When you’re driving with a drink in your cup holder…the last thing you want to do is get distracted while trying to take a drink.
