Vince Vaughn Supports Arming Schools

Warning: triggering content

Vince Vaughn is making headlines for his British GQ interview. He completely supports having guns in schools.

Here's the quote: "You think the politicians that run my country and your country don't have guns in the schools their kids go to? They do. I support people having a gun in public full stop, not just in your home. We don't have the right to bear arms because of burglars; we have the right to bear arms to resist the supreme power of a corrupt and abusive government. [...] Banning guns is like banning forks in an attempt to stop making people fat. Taking away guns, taking away drugs, the booze, it won't rid the world of criminality. In all of our schools it is illegal to have guns on campus, so again and again these guys go and shoot up these f***ing schools because they know there are no guns there. They are monsters killing six-year-olds."

There's an Argument Against Drinking Coffee in the Morning

Some people just want to watch the world burn...

There's a new YouTube video from ASAP Science claiming the early morning is actually one of the worst times of day you can drink a cup-a joe.

It all has to do with your body's level of the stress hormone cortisol, which wakes you up in the morning. Drinking caffeine can interfere with the body's production of cortisol-- it actually makes you produce less of the stuff. You then completely rely on caffeine to compensate for this loss.

They claimtThe best times of day to consume caffeine are between 10 AM and noon, and between 2 PM and 5 PM. So you may want to save that first cup of coffee for a little later in the morning.

There Are More '50 Shades of Grey' on the Way

Wake up your inner goddess because Christian Grey is coming back. Taking a page from her idol, Stephenie Meyer, EL James has announced that she is releasing new versions of Fifty Shades of Grey told from the perspective of Christian Grey.

Meyer famously released her version of Twilight told from Edward's perspective when someone leaked her first draft.

James said in a statement, "Christian is a complex character, and readers have always been fascinated by his desires and motivations, and his troubled past. Also, as anyone who has ever been in a relationship knows, there are two sides to every story. It's been a great pleasure to return to my happy place -- writing, being with Christian and Ana in their universe, and working with the fantastic team at Vintage."

  • Editor Anne Messitte added to the news saying, "Fifty Shades of Grey is a love story that has enthralled readers in a way that few books have, and when Erika mentioned to me that she wanted to explore Christian's viewpoint and re-open the story, I was incredibly excited for her and for her readers. This book has all the compelling attributes of its predecessors, and I can't wait for Fifty Shades fans to experience the work again from a perspective they have long desired."
  • The first book will be released on June 18th -- Christian's birthday.
  • It will be available in paperback and as an eBook.
