Did Dr. Laura's Son Have a Deathwish?

Here is a disturbing photo which shows a man, who could be the son of radio host Dr. Laura Schlessinger, holding a pistol in his mouth while giving a "thumbs up" sign in front of the flag of Afghanistan.

The photo, which was featured on several Internet blogs, was supposedly ripped from a MySpace page allegedly created by 21-year-old Deryk Schlessinger, a Specialist with the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division in Afghanistan. It has been confirmed with an Army rep that a photo of a man holding a gun in his mouth did in fact appear on the MySpace page in question.

The rep would not confirm the man's identity.

The Greatest Long Tracking Shots in Cinema

In a director’s cinematic bag of tricks the long tracking shot is the boldest way of making a statement. It’s the flashiest and most attention-grabbing egotistical way of flexing one’s muscle. In most cases it's a narcissistic maneuver, “look-at-me” filming technique, but rare ones, the best ones, serve to reflect and further the story in a way that can’t be reflected with traditional editing.

See some classic's HERE.

    When boobs are no longer an asset...

    Annina Ulrich, 29, a real estate agent from Germany who wanted to have the biggest breasts in Europe has been fired.

    "Since childhood I've dreamt of big breasts. I have become addicted to breast surgery,"
    she said.
    "My breasts are bigger than those of Katie Price. I'm happy every morning when I look at my super-breasts in the mirror. My clients too think it's great. I can't understand why my boss doesn't think I am an asset to the company."

    She said she plans to start up her own real estate business and is reportedly relying on using her biggest assets to draw in customers - putting pictures of her breasts on her business cards.
