The average prison sentence of men who kill their women partners is 2 to 6 years. Women who kill their male partners are sentenced on average to 15 years. This is despite the fact that 86% of female offenders kill in self-defense, while males are most likely to kill out of possessiveness (82%), abuse (75%) and during arguments (63%). Women are eight times more likely than men to be killed by an intimate partner.

A couple of years ago, when they changed their fries, A&W went from having some of the best fast food fries to having some rather mediocre fries. It was sad. However, one thing they do really well with their newer fries is their color. The have some of the nicest golden fries around.
Moved too fast that night
I didn’t give you any chance to catch up
Where did I have to go that was worth leaving you alone
Cause now I all want to hear is yer voice
But I didn’t leave you with a choice
I just left
Guess I’m just a self-sabotager
Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.
Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.
"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."
Oh my gods this makes me so happy.

I got up early and watched The Scarlet Pimpernel (1934, Harold Young) today. To my surprise, it had almost nothing to do with the Daffy Duck cartoon, The Scarlet Pumpernickel (1950, Chuck Jones). It stars Leslie Howard, who, as always, is a total stud. Raymond Massey plays the antagonist, and does a great job. He has this wonderfully loathsome expression the entire film. Between this film, The Old Dark House, and East of Eden, I’m really coming to love Massey. This film sort of feels like the British cousin to Errol Flynn’s The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938, Michael Curtiz).
The film also features the exclamation “a thousand hells!” which I’ll have to work into my vocabulary.
