Married to the Mob: Dames and Molls who hung with Mafia Wise Guys

Once a woman became involved with a Mafia man, close enough to know what he did for a living, there was no way out except death. But there were plenty of women who embraced the lifestyle, even to the point of participating in crimes with their husbands and boyfriends. And they had to put up with a lot, like being shot by your significant other.
Take bit-part actress Alice Granville (pictured) who was shot twice in the arm by her hitman husband Pete Donahue. Apparently she didn’t even wince. Donahue was a trigger-happy lieutenant for mob boss Dutch Schultz. Granville said her mob beau only shot her to prove how much he loved her. Hate to think what he got her for Valentine’s Day.
Meet some of the Mob molls who accompanied organized crime figures of the mid-20th century at Dangerous Minds.

Power Poses Don’t Help and Could Potentially Backfire

Louisiana wingnut admits to sexting teen boy and buying him sexy underwear

Louisiana wingnut admits to sexting teen boy and buying him sexy underwear but says ‘I’m not gay’

Pink Halibut

From a thread in the Mildly Interesting subreddit:
Fishery scientist here, it probably ate a bunch of cured eggs (fish roe), which is used as sport salmon bait in AK. The pink dye used in the roe can come through the skin. I've seen this happen to others salmon, but never a halibut...
Halibut often feed near river deltas during the salmon run. Cured roe is mostly used in rivers to catch King salmon, not far from the ocean. I imagine it could have simply drifted downstream, where the halibut picked it up. If you've ever been to the Kenai River during sport King season, it's not hard to imagine this happening with the hundreds of pounds of cured bait used every day
