  • Where Are The Parents? Out Dinner, Obviously Occasionally you'll hear of teens throwing a party while the parents are away.  Perhaps you were that kid at one time. But I bet you never did this. A bunch of teens in Parker, Colorado broke into a house that was on the market to be sold.  They threw a rather  raucous party. But here's the thing. This wasn't a house that was up for sale and the owners were living somewhere else. The owners were only out to dinner.  That's, what, a couple of HOURS away? How do things get that out of hand that quickly?

  • Stranger Things Costume Draws Online Backlash Ick or treat? The Netflix hit show Stranger Things is sure to provide some costume inspiration this Halloween, but some online retailers are raising eyebrows with a "sexy" take on one of the series' central child characters. The "Upside Down Honey" costume is based on Millie Bobby Brown’s onscreen character, Eleven, but is intended only for adults. It features a short light-pink baby-doll dress with a ruffled bust, thigh-high white socks, a bomber jacket and accessories. Although there do not appear to be child-sized versions of the costume, some critics on social media claim the design sexualizes a child star. Brown was 12 at the time of filming Stranger Things and is now 13. One ...
