You’ll never guess what unusual item her parents left her in their will


By web gangsta | Published:

There are two things in life that are unavoidable: death and taxes.

And in some cases, some deaths can lead to more taxes if the estate planning and last will and testament aren’t handled carefully.

After all, there’s a reason there are some ARTICLES ABOUT UNUSUAL WILLS and bequethes, with millions upon millions of dollars being left to care for family pets or monkeys.

Women who fight for the right to go topless in public (NSFW)


By web gangsta | Published:

When was the last time you went swimming in public?

Are you the type of man who feels it necessary to wear a t-shirt or a diving shirt when you hop into the pool?  Or are you a man who proudly flaunts your man-boobs for the entire world to see?  (no, you don’t get bonus points for having amazing abs — you are not the type of guy who would hide them in the first place)

How much money do mashup songs cost to make?


By web gangsta | Published:

You’ll recall that Web Watch has written about mashups before.  Some people love them, some people hate them.

Those that fall into the HATE camp have nothing against mashups in general, but just would rather hear the actual songs that make up the mashup rather than the mashup itself.

And that could very well be the reason the site we’re talking about today exists, to appease the mashup haters and bring them together with the mashup lovers.

Best Legal Ruling Ever: the Case of the Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Bikini Top


By web gangsta | Published:

They say that all the really unusual news stories only happen in Florida.

Texas may begin to disagree, especially after what Judge Biery ruled in his recent decision in the case of 35 BAR AND GRILLE, LLC (plaintiffs) vs THE CITY OF SAN ANTONIO in what is officially being called the CASE OF THE ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY BIKINI TOP v THE (MORE) ITSY BITSY TEENY WEENY PASTIE.

What size rocks are used in stoning?


By web gangsta | Published:

In some parts of the world, stoning someone for legal, immoral, religious-based beliefs or other reasons is an accepted method of execution – whether the rest of the world believes stoning to be reasonable or not is a question that Web Watch will let others debate.

2012′s most pirated TV shows


By web gangsta | Published:

Filesharing on the Internet often gets a bad rap.

There are tons of legitimate – legal – reasons to use filesharing software programs and services such as BitTorrent to distribute gigantic files across the Internet.

Legal advice for TV shows


By web gangsta | Published:

How many times have you sat down to watch a TV show and say to yourself, “These people are idiots – even I know that [fill in the blank] will never work!”

Web Watch sees this all the time, where some character goes on and on about some topic that Web Watch happens to know everything about, and the writers just get it all wrong!

We get it – TV is meant to be entertainment, but sometimes some basic research can make the script just that much more believable to those of us at home who actually do know what we’re talking about.

How young is too young to get married?


By web gangsta | Published:

We all have heard about young couples getting married straight out of high school, 18-year-olds who just KNOW that the person they’re marrying is The One for them.

And then there’s the Doug Hutchinsonand Courtney Stodden wedding, where the then 16-year-old Courtney married the 51-year-old actor.   And while there is a significant age difference between Doug and Courtney, we can say that their love has outlasted at least one Kardashian marriage.  So they do have that going for them.

But you should recall that when Courtney and Doug got hitched, there was a huge public outcry over not just their age difference, but also how Courtney’s mother gave permission for her 16-year-old daughter to go through with the marriage in the first place.

Look, if it was true love, Courtney and Doug could have waited two more years until she turned 18.  Then, while still having a little bit of the creepy factor, it would at least be a legal union between adults rather than an arrangement with a minor (albeit one with parental approval).

The cost of having noisy sex? $315


By web gangsta | Published:

When was the last time that your neighbors called the police on you?

It could be for anything, really.  But generally speaking, Web Watch has found that neighborhood police involvement typically revolves around an abuse of noise levels in the area.

Loud parties, loud music, loud fights.   All are fairly common complaints.

But loud sex?  That’s a different story altogether, isn’t it?

How much does it cost to clean up vomit?


By web gangsta | Published:

Cab drivers don’t have an easy life.

For one things, we’ve always been told “never get into a car with a stranger”, and yet when it comes to riding in a cab — that’s exactly what we’re doing.  Odd that this is typically the very first thing that we end up doing when we visit a new city.  Who are these people? Where are they taking us? Are they ripping us off in doing so?

But don’t let a few bad apple cab drivers ruin the experience for everyone. 99% of all cab drivers out there are just good ol’ working folk, trying to make a living.

Have you ever snuck into a concert?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has been lucky enough to have seen pretty much every major artist we’ve ever wanted to see play in concert.

Kenny Rogers?  Check.

U2? Check.

Neil Diamond? Check.

Village People?  You betcha.

And for the most part, we had tickets or passes for every show.  Now, we’ll admit that there may have been one or two where we did end up having to finagle our way into a venue or two, but we swear that we had a legitimate right to be there to justify our sneakiness.

Just because we didn’t have a ticket at the time doesn’t mean that we didn’t know where we could get one.

In some divorces, couples fight over who gets the toilet paper

In some divorces, couples fight over who gets the toilet paper.

One of Web Watch’s friends wanted out of his marriage so badly, he left everything behind. The ex-wife got everything – including his clothes.  He felt it was easier to just replace all his stuff then it was to have to deal with her in any way.

Yeah, that was a rough divorce, but rest assured that he’s in a much, much happier place now.

Has your website been plagiarized?


By web gangsta | Published:

Web Watch has been around for quite a number of years now, having presented our faithful readers with thousands of websites, videos, news articles, and other tidbits of helpful information along the way.

And with that type of success online, we’re also subjected to having our content stolen.

It’s true — and we’ve had to file cease & desist notices to a number of websites that copied our original content and presented it as their own.

Silly rabbit – just because it’s posted on the Internet doesn’t mean that it’s free for the taking.

Are you an ethical diner? Here’s how to select the best-run restaurant for your next meal


By web gangsta | Published:

We all enjoy eating out at restaurants.

The food is typically well-prepared, and who doesn’t enjoy being waited on by a young go-getter who is eager to please and provide the Ultimate Dining Experience?

Ok, well maybe not every restaurant you eat at ends up being the Ultimate Dining Experience, but go with us on the concept here.

Let’s look at this from another viewpoint – if you were going to work at a restaurant, would you rather work at a restaurant that provided the Ultimate Employee Experience, or one that treated all of their employees without care?
