The Sideshow
  • The tweet arrived like a Christmas present, tucked neatly away for anyone who happened to be on Twitter on Christmas Eve:

    Justin Bieber retiring! Is that a reason for weeping, or a gift? Depends on whether you're a Belieber or not, most likely. Bieber followed up that provocative little gift a few minutes later with some good old-fashioned persecution-complex night-tweeting:

    Drunken driving is always a bad idea, even in a video game.

    To help bring home the point, Belgian advocacy group Responsible Young Drivers produced a clip featuring a professional videogamer who goes by the name AMO_RACING87.  We first saw the clip over at video game blog Kotaku.

    AMO_RACING87, who is described as one of the world's most talented Gran Turismo players, takes a couple shots of whiskey and then wobbles over to his monitor and console for a  few laps in the popular racing game.

    Things don't go well. The driver can't seem to take the turns. He runs into walls, crashes into cars, and generally drives like he's, well, drunk.

    Of course, this is hardly ground breaking research. The fact that alcohol diminishes one's ability to drive is known by (hopefully) everybody. Still, people tend to forget this during the booze-infused holiday season. Another reminder to get a designated driver doesn't hurt.

  • After Phil Robertson, the patriarch of "Duck Dynasty," made controversial remarks about homosexuality that were published in GQ magazine,  former vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin spoke out in his defense.

    However, when asked by Fox News host Greta Van Susteren if Robertson's remarks were offensive and whether or not she had any objection as to how he worded his comments, Palin said she didn't know what Robertson had actually said, Politico reports.

    “I haven’t read the article. I don’t know exactly how he said it,” Palin explained on Fox News’s “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren" on Monday.

    On December 18, shortly after the "Duck Dynasty" controversy began, Palin took to Facebook where she wrote, "Free speech is an endangered species. Those 'intolerants' hatin and taking on the Duck Dynasty patriarch for voicing his personal opinion are taking on all of us."

    Palin's comment drew over 428,000 likes on the social network. Robertson's original comments in GQ expressed his opinions
