Somehow the story is even worse than that sounds.

Kam Brock, @Akilahbrock, was pulled over by New York police and her car impounded when officers suspected she was driving under the influence of marijuana (none was found in the vehicle). After getting upset with officers and undergoing a medical evaluation, doctors thought she was suffering from a mental disorder - thinking her claims of being followed by Barack Obama on Twitter were bunk.

The only problem is that Barack Obama DOES follow @AkilahBrock, and around 640,000 other people. And now Brock is faced with thousands in medical bills after being sent to a facility. She's now pursuing legal action as a result of these stupid, insane events.

Check out a full video of the coverage here.

From the Huffington Post:

If a Facebook friend posts something that you feel indicates he or she could be thinking about self harm, you'll be able to click the little arrow at the top right of the post and click "Report Post." There, you'll be given the options to contact the friend who made the post, contact another friend for support or contact a suicide helpline, the University of Washington reported on Wednesday.

After that, Facebook will look at the post. If Facebook feels like the post indicates distress, it will contact the person who posted it. That person will be greeted with the following pop ups when he or she next logs in.



game of thrones dothraki script leak season 6

Game of Thrones newcomer Elie Haddad shared a seemingly harmless photo of his morning brew and A PAGE OF THE SCRIPT FROM SEASON SIX.

Warning: very mild spoilers below Jon Snow



The picture has since been deleted, and much of the text is difficult to make out, but it appears to be two Dothraki having a lewd discussion about Daenerys. One man tells another, "I’d like to know what a khaleesi tastes like," to which the other responds, "Good. You can suck my d*ck."


We already knew the Dothraki would be back in season 6, so this leak doesn't tell us much, but with many months to go before the next season, any Game of Thrones news is exciting.
