Colleen Long Associated Press Published 10:45 PM EDT Apr 1, 2019 Washington – David Johnston stands over a table full of peculiar items confiscated at Dulles International Airport: a glittery clutch with brass knuckles as a clasp. A perfume bottle shaped like a grenade. A rusted circular saw blade. A pocket-sized pitchfork. None of those is quite right. Then Johnston sees it: a guitar shaped like a semi-automatic rifle. Bingo. It will do nicely for the Transportation Security Administration’s social media accounts. Johnston, TSA’s social media director, is following in the footsteps of Curtis “Bob” Burns, who created unlikely internet buzz for the not-always-beloved agency by showcasing the weirdest stuff travelers pack in their carry-ons. He died suddenly in October at age 48. Burns’ work created a model for other federal agencies. The quirky photos combined with a hefty dose of dad humor helped lure in more than a million followers on … [Read more...] about TSA posts pics of ‘crazy things’ people try to take on planes

This genre was immensely popular amongst audiences who liked horror, and this led to the making of many popular franchises that remain cult favourites to this day. Child’s Play was another breakout hit which attained cult status and subsequently spawned a series of sequels. But Child’s Play was a standout amongst other slasher films, as it had its very own twist at the genre. If you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know about this movie based on a psycho doll, Charles Lee “Chucky” Ray, the main antagonist, is not just another serial killer – he is a dead man whose spirit inhabits a ‘Good Guys’ doll, who then goes on a … [Read more...] about Cyborg Chucky: Why the ‘modern’ remake of Child’s Play is a huge disappointment
McLEAN, Va. — Michael Bloomberg came to Virginia on Friday to deliver a message to Democrats: I told you so. The former New York City mayor delivered his most scathing remarks about Trump since he called then-candidate Donald Trump a “dangerous demagogue” and knocked his business credentials in a speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention.Story Continued Below “I said then that he was just not suited,” Bloomberg said Friday morning in a speech at the Democratic Business Council of Northern Virginia event. “He did not have the skills, the temperament, the work ethic to be president of the United States.” Though both are New York billionaires, Bloomberg said he knew Trump in their former lives only “casually" through interactions at ceremonial events. He assailed the former real estate mogul for what he called “a complete failure of presidential leadership" and "totally incompetent management" as some federal agencies remain … [Read more...] about Bloomberg rips Trump: ‘Totally incompetent’
