Teen robbed at gunpoint by teen pot buyer he planned to rob

A lack of honor among thieves can start at a very young age, as evidenced by the fact that police in Waco, Texas are currently looking for a juvenile suspect who allegedly robbed another juvenile at gunpoint during a drug deal that never was.

Starcasm overhaul in progress, no new posts for 48 hours :(

Just a heads up that Starcasm is in the process of finishing a full technical overhaul and we have been instructed that we shouldn't post anything for 48 hours to "allow the DNS to resolve." The ability to view the site won't be affected, it just means that during this two-day period visitors will sometimes see the new version and sometimes they will see the old version. If you are on a computer, you shouldn't notice a difference -- the site will look COMPLETELY different for mobile users. We've been working on this for a while and we're super excited to get it done and get back to bloggin' at full speed! Thanks for your patience! Asa - Starcasm Editor

BOTCHED’s Martina BIG transitions to a black woman

On this season of Botched, viewers met Germany’s Martina Adam (aka Martina BIG). At the time that she visited Dr. Paul and Dr. Terry, Martina had the largest breast implants in Europe, and she was looking for the booty to match.
