The Victorian Tattooing Craze Started With Convicts and Spread to the Royal Family – Smithsonian.com12.28.19

The 75,688 tattoos cataloged in the Digital Panopticon database of Victorian era convicts depict a dizzying array of subjects. A habitual criminal named Charles Wilson, for instance, boasted body art featuring a bust of Buffalo Bill, a heart and the name Maggie. One Martin Hogan had tattoos of a ring, a cross and a crucifix. Other popular designs documented via the online portal include anchors, mermaids, the sun, the stars, loved ones initials, decorative dots, weapons, animals, flags and nude figures.

Per a November 2018 blog post, the researchers behind Digital Panopticona sweeping collaborative project that traces the lives of some 90,000 criminals convicted at the Old Bailey courthouse and imprisoned in Britain or Australia between 1780 and 1925set out to study convict tattoos in hopes of better understanding the practice of tattooings historical significance.

Prisoners tattoos werent symbols of criminal affiliation or bad repute as commonly thought, report project investigators Robert Shoemaker and Zoe Alker for the Conversation. Instead, the designs expressed a surprisingly wide range of positive and indeed fashionable sentiments.

Tattoos provide an important window into the lives of those who typically left no written records of their own, the researchers write. As a form of history from below, they give us a fleeting but intriguing understanding of the identities and emotions of ordinary people in the past.

Although the survey centered on the 58,002 convicts whose tattoos are described in surviving records, the team also found that tattooing was a growing and accepted phenomenon in the wider cultural sphere of Victorian England, according to Shoemaker and Alker.

Far from appearing solely on the bodies of convicts, soldiers and sailors, tattoos became increasingly fashionable over the course of the Victorian era. In 1902, a British magazine touted the slight pricking of the tattoo needle as so painless that even the most delicate ladies make no complaint. By the turn of the 20th century, unskilled workers, engineers and royals alike were all sporting body art. As Ros Taylor reported for BBC News in 2016, the future George V got a tattoo of a blue-and-red dragon during an 1881 trip to Japan, and his father, Edward VII, commissioned a tattoo of a Jerusalem Cross during a pilgrimage.

The Digital Panopticon team used data-mining techniques to extract information on tattoos from broader descriptive records of criminals imprisoned in both Britain and Australia, where an estimated 160,000 convicts were sent between 1788 and 1868. According to the project page, detailed physical descriptions of prisoners were commonly recorded, as these identifying features could be used to track down escaped convicts and repeat offenders.

After extrapolating the relevant data, the investigators divided tattoo descriptions into four subcategories: designs (such as anchors and rings), written words or letters, body part(s), and subjects (the list runs the gamut from national identity to astronomy, death, pleasure, religion and nature).

Using these data points, the team created a unique set of visualizations exploring such topics as changing tattoo trends over time, males versus females chosen tattoo subjects, and correlations between subjects. Between 1821 and 1920, naval themes, religious symbols and tokens of love topped the tattoo chart, while images of justice and punishment, America, and sex were rarely inked. The most popular tattoo location was the arm, followed by the elbow, and the most popular tattoo subjects were names and initials.

As Shoemaker and Alker write for the Conversation, convicts tattoos were less concerned with expressing a criminal identity than inscribing the body in much the same way as modern tattoos.

In their images of vice and pleasure some convicts may have signaled an alternative morality but for most, the researchers conclude, tattoos simply reflected their personal identities and affinitiestheir loves and interests.

10 Big Bang Theory Tattoos Only True Fans Will Understand – Screen Rant12.28.19

How far would you be willing to go to show your devotion for your favorite TV show? There are many ways fans choose to do this, whether it's blogging about it or writing fan-fiction. But some people won't mind taking it to the extreme, and brand their skins with tattoos as an homage to the characters that they love so much. And when we're talking about a show as popular and beloved asThe Big Bang Theory,one doesn't have to look very far to find examples!

Even though the show is over, it still lives in our hearts and memories. And it became so popular and enjoyed by so many people around the world, you can even find some that choose to remember Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, and Howard forever through tattoos. If you're curious - or if you're thinking about getting one yourself and need some inspiration - here are tenThe Big Bang Theorytattoos that only true fans will understand! And spoiler alert - there's going to be a lot of Sheldon!

This is one of the smallest and cutest tattoos that you can get in order to pay homage toThe Big Bang Theory.The good thing about this tattoo, in particular, is that it can hold several meanings, and it doesn't have to tie into the show alone. It can simply be a way to show your love for all things universe related!

Simultaneously, it's a beautiful reminder of one of the core themes of the show - science. Sheldon, Howard, Raj, and Leonard will always live in our memories as the funniest and brightest scientists on television. If you like more subtle things, then this one is for you. Plus, the addition of the heart is just adorable.

There were many curious moments and trademark catchphrases that we'll always relate back toThe Big Bang Theoryand, surprise surprise, most of them came out of Dr. Sheldon Cooper himself. No other catchphrase was quite as iconic as "bazinga", so it comes as no surprise that this was the choice many fans made to tattoo on themselves.

The first example we introduce to you is this curious yellow and red tattoo, which is reminiscent of comic-book stories from Marvel and DC. Which is actually perfect, considering how much Sheldon and the gang love comic-books! If you don't mind going for a little color, this could be the fan tattoo for you!

There are people that go for simpler things, like the ones above, and then there are those that take it ten steps further and show their love by literally tattooing Sheldon Cooper's face on their bodies. We have to give major props to the artist because Jim Parson's face looks like a picture that was glued onto the skin.

Not only did this devoted fan go for a color tattoo with Sheldon's face, but they also added his catchphrase "bazinga" the great scheme of things. That is one heck of afan!

Probably one of the most inventive, creative, and adorable tattoos from this list comes in the form of four very distinctive drawings of heads. For the untrained eye - and by the untrained eye, we obviously mean people who are not fans ofThe Big Banf Theory- this might as well be a family portrait.

But those who have lived, cried, and laughed alongside the characters on the show can recognize this adorable bunch from a mile away, It's a beautiful tribute to Sheldon, Leonard, and Raj, and one that is still very low-key.

Let's say you really enjoy Sheldon's catchphrase, and you want to give it a proper tribute. However, you don't want just a small comic-book-like tattoo, but you don't want to go as far as to add Sheldon Cooper's face. Well, this tattoo would be the perfect example for you!

This fan made sure that anyone could see the "bazinga" written on his arm with thick letters, and took it a step further adding a planet in the back, in a pretty well-thought out not to science.

Maybe you do love Sheldon Cooper so much you actually want to tattoo him on your skin. But maybe you're not one to go for super-realistic tattoos, and instead prefer more artsy drawings in your art. Look no further than this incredibly curious caricature of Dr. Cooper!

Complete with the catchphrase and stunning colors, this tattoo is a wonderful piece of art that will impress any die-hard fan ofThe Big Bang Theory -and flatter actor Jim Parsons in the process.

This tattoo is a true love letter toThe Big Bang Theory.As opposed to others we have included in this list, this one doesn't have a face drawn or the word "bazinga" written on it.

Related:The Big Bang Theory: 10 Things To Know About Sheldons Spot

Instead, there are several elements that refer to physics, the universe, and the scientific field as a whole, along with an adorable nod to Sheldon's favorite song, "Soft Kitty". It's impossible not to marvel at this beauty, even if you're not a fan of the show in any way.

We're finishing of the Sheldon's Face Tattoo Hall of Fame with what is perhaps the most realistic of the bunch. Once again, props to all the amazing artists that were involved in getting these tattoos done.

This is a no-nonsense kind of art. There are no colors or caricatures, just Sheldon Cooper's hyper-realistic face next to his catchphrase. If you're one who loves this particular kind of art, this is the picture you should take to your tattoo artist.

Remember when Amy took Leonard to a wedding and came out with the phrase "Are youwillingtodrawamustacheonyour fingeras aconversationalstarter", and she actually had a mustache drawn on her finger? Well, this tattoo is both a great ode to the show and to that moment in particular.

It's much smaller and low-key than any other tattoo in this list, but it's still perfect in its own unique way. You'll have a little reminder on your finger every time you look at it - and it's a great conversation starter too!

And we finish off this list with a tattoo that brings together two of the examples we provided on this list - think of it asThe Big Bang Theoryremix tattoo.

It includes Raj, Howard, Sheldon, and Leonard, plus the catchphrase we've all grown to love and adore. It's the perfect mix of artsy and lovable!

Tucker Beathard on the Psalm 27:1 Tattoo He Shared with His Late Brother – CMT.com12.28.19

by Alison Bonaguro 7h ago

On December 21st, God sure did get a good one.

Thats what Tucker Beathard posted on Instagram on Friday (Dec. 27), a week after his brother Clayton was killed in a stabbing outside of The Dogwood in Nashvilles Midtown neighborhood.

Its the first time the country singer-songwriter has shared his own personal and faith-filled thoughts about the tragedy, saying that he feels beyond blessed to have had 22 incredible years with Clay.

Anyone who knows Clay knew what kind of light he naturally was in any situation no matter what the circumstances, he added. As heartbreaking and hard this experience has been, it has also pushed me and my family to a whole new level of faith and what it means to trust God and what his plan is.

Clay was a true warrior for God and his kingdom and to see the legacy he has made and the lives he has changed, including mine, has given me some perspective on what life is really all about at the end of the day. It amazes me to see how Clay already had that perspective he lived a life here on earth for serving Jesus and had that discernment of right and wrong and the courage to wear his faith on his sleeve.

Beathard goes on to share his thoughts on why God did what He did: I think God saw the great work he has done and now has rewarded him with a new life in heaven that no one can even fathom how incredible it is, and that thought alone is enough to help me smile in the midst of all this.

But by the end of the post, he has a personal message for his little brother. Clay, I love you and I cant wait to see you again, and I like to think you looked up to me being your older brother, but the truth is, its you who I look up to, he wrote.

I think the matching Bible-verse tattoo that we have sums up perfectly how Clay lived and approached his life here on earth. The Lord is my light and salvation for whom shall I fear, the lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid? (Psalm 27:1).

The man who allegedly stabbed Beathard was arrested on Christmas Day (Dec. 25).

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.

In ink and flesh, tattoo tells story of addiction in Quincy – The Patriot Ledger12.28.19

One recovering addict has dedicated his back to telling the story of addiction and loss in Quincy.

QUINCY Mike Oakhem was just 18 years old when he first lost a friend to an overdose. The losses have been piling up ever since.

"You never realized it was happening in your backyard," Oakhem, a longtime Quincy resident, said of the opioid epidemic. "We were just kids, jumping the quarries and skateboarding in the street, and the next thing you know people are overdosing left and right. The next thing you know, people are dying."

Oakhem, now 37, lived in Quincy for most of his life before moving to Jamaica Plain. He moved to the city when he was 10, and went to Lincoln Hancock, Sterling Middle School and Quincy High. He was a self-described punk, a kid who loved to skateboard and stay out late, and by the time he was 18 he was addicted to Oxycodone.

"Back then, heroin wasn't really a thing. We knew about it and about opioids, but it wasn't everywhere you turned," he said. "But then it was like a bomb went off. Everyone was on Oxy, so I tried it, and I was in love with it."

The next several years of Oakhem's life were punctuated with taking pills, losing friends and doing whatever it took including stealing to get a fix. He only tried heroin once, he said, and was in Alcoholic Anonymous and sobering up by age 21, but the three years he spent in the throes of addiction don't paint a pretty picture.

But rather than turn his back on what were some of his darkest times, and the struggles he's seen friends go through since, Oakhem has immortalized them in a massive back tattoo that depicts what he has seen the City of Quincy lose to the opioid epidemic.

"It's one of those tattoos that takes a lifetime of experiences to come to life," he said. "It's not sugar-coated, and it shows what the epidemic has taken away from me and from the Quincy I knew."

Every inch of Oakhem's back is covered in inked illustrations that tell the painful story of drugs and loss that so many people in Quincy and beyond have come to know. Among the images are a depiction of the Quincy Center T station with the names of Oakhem's friends graffitied on the front, drug paraphernalia, a "Welcome to Quincy" sign, the words 'Oxy C' and '80 mg,' and several skulls.

Across the top are the words "Our Ruin," a play on a classic sailors tattoo that features the words "Sailors Ruin" around images of women and alcohol.

"It was just going to say 'My Ruin' but after my friends died I said 'OK, now it's taken a lot," Oakhem said.

Oakhem said he spent a decade thinking about the tattoo, and that he knew exactly who to call when the time came: a tattoo artist who goes by the name Lord Dunce.

Lord Dunce, who would only give his first name, Ross, worked with Oakhem to design a piece that incorporated everything the recovering addict wanted to showcase. The work took eight, 2- hour sessions spread over a year to ink.

A former graffiti artist who now works out of Pins & Needles Tattoo in Brockton, Ross works almost exclusively on large pieces such as a full back or entire sleeve in black and white realism. And a work as big as Oakhem's is a major time commitment before a needle ever even touches skin.

Ross will first work with his clients to develop a concept, often asking them to bring in a list of images or words that they want included. From there, he uploads a photo of the client to a high-tech, Wacom tablet and uses it to sketch ideas, meld photos together and layer different images.

He can come up with a concept quickly, but prefers to spend time creating the artwork with the client by his side, a process that can take multiple sessions.

"The more input someone has, the more personal it is to them," Ross said. "In Mike's case, all those different things were special to him and he made me a list of what he wanted. Then I used my art background to make that work. With 20 years of experiences, you know how to do that."

Ross said he doesn't often get asked to design and ink tattoos related to the opioid epidemic. Most recovering addicts want to leave those topics in the past, he said, but he does work a lot with people memorializing loved ones, or people who want to illustrate the juxtaposing ideas of good and evil, darkness and light.

"That's what everyone struggles with," he said. "Japanese art, African art, Somolian art, American art all this art from around the world deals with those themes because it's something we all experience."

Oakhem's back will forever immortalize his struggle with addiction, and the battles his friends and other Quincy residents have faced. But he says it's on his back for a reason, because it's a struggle he hopes is behind him. Someday, he wants to cover his chest in symbols of hope and redemption, something he says he's also seen come from the epidemic.

"I've seen girls that were prom queens begging on the corner for change, and I've seen people nobody ever thought would get clean pull it off," he said. "Life is still worth living. No matter what happens, life is awesome, and having a positive outlook is more important than you'd ever think."

As the UPDF medical officers checked the recruits, they were told to open their mouths and whoever had a missing tooth would be told to leave.


KAMPALA - Hundreds braved the scotching sun on Friday to get a chance of being recruited into the Uganda Peoples Defence Forces (UPDF) at the Kololo Independence Grounds.

Whereas many qualified, a few individuals were shocked when they were turned away for having tattoos, body scars, bulging veins and missing teeth.

One candidate, a graduate, could not believe the recruitment officer who ordered him to leave or risk being arrested for failing to pass the initial interview.

How could they throw me out for having a small scar? he wondered as he exited the recruitment area.

As the UPDF medical officers checked the recruits, they were told to open their mouths and whoever had a missing tooth would be told to leave.

Huyo alipoteza (that one lost tooth), the medical personnel would say, signalling to the Police officers and tough-looking military officers to lead the failed candidates out of the grounds.

Among those who turned up for recruitment was a Police officer who was told to remove shoes whisked away by the military to make-shift cells.

Some candidates who tried to dodge the verification process were arrested by the alert military and Police personnel and chased from the grounds.

One recruitment officers who did not want to be named chased several candidates who claimed they had been sent by certain high-ranking army officers.

Those who are claiming to be children of soldiers should go to Jinja. Here we are following the laid down procedure, the officer said.


According to Lt. Col. Deo Akiiki, the deputy spokesperson of the UPDF, within Kampala, the recruitment will be conducted at the Kololo Independence Grounds, while those from upcountry will be registered at playgrounds scattered across the various regions.

Kololo will recruit candidates from Kampala, Kotido (playgrounds) to recruit those from Kotido, Kaabong, Karenga and Abim. Lyantonde to recruit those from Lyantonde, Rakai and Kyotera, Arua is expected to recruit people from Arua Madi-Okollo, Yumbe, Maracha, Adjumani, Moyo, Obongi and Koboko while Hoima to recruit those from Hoima, Kikuube, Kagadi, Kibaale and Kakumiro, Akiiki said on Thursday.

The national recruitment exercise, which started today, is expected to end on January 5 next year, also targets air force candidates.

Candidates for UPDF air force must have at least A level qualification in science subjects, especially physics, mathematics and geography, a degree or diploma in aviation-related fields.

Early this month, the UPDF spokesperson, Brig. Richard Karemire announced that the army recruitment targets 4,000 able-bodied Ugandans to join UPDF as regular, professional and specialized units of the army.

Karemire said the recruitment exercise has been rolled out to fill the gaps created by retirements and also boost science competencies within the rank and file of UPDF.

Causalities suffered during frontline battles and deaths, are the other developments that have occasioned the fresh recruitment exercise.

To be eligible for recruitment, Karemire said, citizens must have a national identity card, be in good health and medically fit, with a recommendation letter from the LC chairperson.

The recommended age bracket for recruits is 18 to 30 years.

The UPDF said various teams have been set up across the country, to sieve and ensure that the recruitment exercise meets the legal quota requirement per region and district.

After cancer diagnosis, shes thankful for expressions of support – SILive.com12.25.19

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Hi my name is Silvana. I am 42 years old, a mom of two teens and recently diagnosed with advance stage ovarian cancer.

My journey, although recent, has already been filled with so much love and kindness.

Im so thankful to God for everything Im learning and the people that are placed in my life.

I must admit Ive been dealing with the physical side effects of chemotherapy fairly well, however, Im still trying to look as much as myself as I can.

I was referred to Tara Leigh of Brows and Beauty on Forest Ave. for eyebrow henna tattoos.

On my consult appointment, I immediately noticed when an extraordinary woman Tara is.

I felt she was very professional and very kind hearted so I decided to go ahead and make the appointment.

When I returned for my henna session, I learn of Taras desire to help people with cancer.

I know shes trying to save money to become certified in breast tattooing so she can help women with breast cancer. I was so drawn and amazed by her.

As I sat there for about an hour, we exchanged some stories about each other -- I felt as if Ive known her my whole life.

When she was done she refused payment and tip and told me that her payment was seeing how happy I was with her work.

She brought me to tears and in that moment I realized what a truly amazing women she is.

I have to return for another session and Ill receive a text here and there from her as she asks how Im doing.

I want to extend my gratitude and love to Tara and all of the wonderful people who have been on this journey with me.

Jackass: The 10 Most Stomach-Churning Stunts From The Movies And Show, Ranked – CinemaBlend12.25.19

It has been nearly 20 years since the Jackass crew introduced their off-brand of comedy and stomach-churning stunts to viewers with the MTV show. In the years following the shows debut, Johnny Knoxville, Bam Margera, Steve-O, and the rest of the gang have released three movies and countless spin-off series, giving us some of the most insane moments in the process.

With word of a Jackass 4 movie in the works, lets take a look back at some of the most stomach-churning stunts from the movies and show. You're welcome.

The Goldfish might not be the most disgusting moment from the television series, but it is one of the stunts that started it all. For a lot of us, it was our first introduction to Steve-O, and it was a memorable one at that.

In this iconic stunt, Steve-O drinks a goldfish out of a plastic bottle and pukes it out of his system and into a fishbowl. As several people watch on, the young Steve-O struggles to vomit the fish into the bowl, but after several attempts and multiple gulps of water from a gallon jug, the stunt performer is successful and the goldfish lives to see his new home.

This was one of the first Jackass moments from the show, but it was just a taste of what was to come from Steve-O and the rest of the crew.

The Dizzy Boxing scene has nothing on some of the stunts featured further down in the list, and while its not disgusting, it is stomach-churning in its own right. In the clip, Dave England and Ehren McGhehey duke it out in a new take on the classic boxing match by being spent around in office chairs before each round.

After three rounds of dizzy boxing, Dave England has more than enough of the boxing and dizziness and is down for the count, leaving Ehren McGhehey the winner. But does anyone really win here?

Sometimes, getting a tattoo can be a nit nauseating. The constant poking and dragging of the needles on skin can be more than a little uncomfortable for those receiving the tattoo, but that add an off-road drive with Henry Rollins behind the wheel and you have yourself a recipe for disaster.

Thats what happened to Steve-O in Jackass: The Movie when he took part in the Off-Road Tattoo skit that when he was the receiving end of a barbaric and painful tattooing experience. Throughout the entire skit, Henry Rollins takes the hummer through an off-road course that would be bad enough on its own, but the tattooing makes it that much worse. The finished product - a smiley face - is anything but need and pretty. It makes for one hell of a story though.

Jousting was a popular sport and form of entertainment in the Middle Ages and has shown up in every movie and television series from A Knights Tale to Game of Thrones, but we have never seen in it portrayed in the manner in which the Jackass crew reinvented jousting early on in the series run.

There arent any horses in this Poo Joust tournament, instead several members of the cast stand atop a beam in the middle of a ring that has been covered with one ton of fresh horse poop. Not only do the losers have to experience the pain of defeat, they also have to deal with the warm stench of horse manure covering nearly every square each of their bodies.

This was pretty early on in the Jackass chronology, and things would only get more insane and disgusting from here.

Audiences who thought the crew couldnt get more disgusting than they were in Jackass 2 were in for a rude awakening when Jackass 2.5 was released in 2007. From the opening scene, the crew made the viewer aware that they were in store for more than just a new title when they see Steve-O drinking a beer from a less than ideal beer luge.

In the Longest Nail Beer Luge, Steve-O drinks a Miller beer that has been poured over Shridhar Chillals fingernails, the Guinness World Record holder for having the longest fingernails on one hand. Steve-O squirms, kicks, and gags throughout the entire 15-second clip. And remember, this is even before the title card comes up on the screen.

The crew didnt pull any punches or hold back on any stomach-churning gags when they returned in 2010 for Jackass 3D. In addition to finding inventive ways to include 3D technology in the films hilarious skits and stunts, the guys behind Jackass also brought back the time-honored poop gag.

The Poo-Cano starts off innocent enough - idyllic music plays while the camera pans across what looks like a detailed model train set and environment. The tranquility, however, is short-lived as we noticed that the mountain is actually a butt (Dave Englands butt to be exact) volcano getting ready to spray liquid poop all over the model train, the figurines, and as we come to find out, himself.

The scene ends with the table being pulled off England as he runs off to clean his own feces of his body. The cast and crew proceed to do what anyone in their shoes would do - laugh while vomiting.

Shortly after the death of legendary American stuntman Evel Knievel in 2007, the Jackass crew set out to make a tribute video in honor of Knievels exploits. The product of their hard work, Jackass Presents: Mat Hoffmans Tribute to Evel Knievel, featured numerous BMX and motocross riders paying respect to their late hero.

In addition to the professional riders, the cast also included Johnny Knoxville, whose attempt at pulling off a back flip on a motorbike was met with disastrous results. The segment, properly titled Penis-Breaking Motorcycle Backflip, starts off one of the professional riders telling Knoxville not to ditch the bike mid-air, which is exactly what happens on his fourth and final attempt.

When Knoxville lets go of the bike after pulling off the ramp, it comes crashing down on him, landing right on his crotch. After everything was said and done, Knoxville was left with broken penis but one great piece of video.

Its no surprise by now, but it seems like Dave England shows up in the lions share of the most stomach-churning skits and stunts on this list. Need someone to poop on demand? Hes your guy. Need someone to spin around until hes dizzy and have a boxing match? Hes your guys. Need someone to make himself vomit? One again, hes your guy.

And Vomiting is exactly what Chef Dave England did in the Vomelet gag from Jackass 3D. Not to be outdone by his Poo-Cano, England starts surrounded by everything needed for an omelet, except for the knives to chop and the whisk to stir. Instead of cutting and whisking, England eats the food and then vomits it back up into a bowl that he then pours into a skillet.

But the fun doesnt end there. After cooking the omelet, England asks for a volunteer to eat the finished product. That lucky volunteer happens to be Steve-O, who upon eating the omelet vomits it back up, leaving us where we started with all of the ingredients needed for a proper omelet, only in the form of vomit.

The hits just kept coming with Jackass 3D, and anyone and everyone on the crew got in on the fun, including Preston Lacy with the Sweatsuit Cocktail.

The segment opens up with Lacy, whos wearing a sweatsuit, as he climbs on an elliptical machine. As Lacy starts to work out on the machine, sweat from his plastic suit is funneled into a cup, and by the time we saw the cup and who was standing around (Steve-O), we knew what was about to happen.

Before Steve-O could drink from the sweat cup, several crew members start losing it and begin vomiting just thinking about what is going to happen in the next few minutes. Not to be outdone by all the vomit in the room, Steve-O does what he does best and drinks from the cup. Almost immediately, he begins to throw up, which starts another chain reaction of sweat and vomit.

Last but definitely not least, we have the most stomach-churning stunt to ever be featured in any version of Jackass. The following stunt, without a doubt, is the most disgusting thing the guys ever did on the show or in a movie. Also, its perfect for this list because it stomach-churning for more than one reason, as were about to find out.

The Poo Cocktail Supreme is the last stunt to be performed in Jackass 3D, and the guys really went all out for this monumental feat in filmmaking. At the beginning of the segment, Steve-O is secured to a Porta Potty that has been transformed into a carnival ride fixed with two large bungee cords. Steve-O is then shot up into the air but comes crashing down to the ground with a days worth of urine, feces, and all sorts of nastiness covering his entire body.

It is truly the most disgusting part of the movie and the entire franchise.

There you have it. Those are the 10 most stomach-churning Jackass stunts we could find from the ever-popular franchise. Do you agree with our rankings? Let us know!

2020 Porsche Taycan 4S Review: Electric Ice Drifting at the Top of the World – The Drive12.25.19

Whether youre talking the Taycan Turbo or Taycan 4S, high-performance electric cars are a whole new bag for Porsche. And just like a 911 4S in Porsches fossil-fueled lineup, the Taycan 4S might end up being the sweet spot of the BEV line. Even at its temporary starting price of $114,340 (it's a Porsche, so you can option it into the stratosphere), the Taycan 4S with its optional bigger battery is more than 40 grand cheaper than a Turbo.

With 482 horsepower (make it 563 using the standard launch control), its not slow. Mash the gas on a snowy road and theres some initial slippage from all of the torque being available immediately, but soon the 4S hooks up and slingshots away with little hint of its 4,954-pound curb weight. You dont feel that weight on the various ice courses, at least not when you don't want to. Perhaps this is a testament to how diligently the cars systems are working to shuffle torque around and end up with any traction at all.

Were encouraged to try each course with the stability control on, in Sport mode, and off. The electronics are effective in reining the Taycan in when the ESP is switched ontoo much so. The system allows for little in the way of danger, fun, or dangerous fun. Sport mode is pretty useless for ice drifting too, because you're always going to be outside the permitted (albeit increased) yaw threshold, which causes the Taycan to get frustrated with your antics and cut power eventually. No, the stability control needs to be completely off to have fun and to get around the courses with any sort of speed.

By contrast, Heinonen confirms our suspicion that other settings are best left as soft as possible; the suspension, so that you can feel the body roll and react quickly, and the accelerator, because all that monstrous torque is available at tip in. You cant temper the fury with fewer revs like you would in a gas-powered car. The sensitivity of the pedal is your only adjustment here, so the more granular and gradual the programming, the better.

Throw it at a corner, turn in, throttle down, and the Taycan kicks out and powers through a controlled slide. Sorry to sound like were copping out, but here too its tough to understand how its sideways behavior comes down to the Taycans big PDCC brain shuffling torque around versus changing traction conditions. Depending on where you have a wheel, theres either a fair amount of snow (and thus traction), or absurdly well-polished ice (and no traction), and every corner is an unpredictable checkerboard of both. Weve drifted many a Porsche in the snow and ice, and its been easier to hold a slide in any of them. But again, this is a completely unscientific comparison because there are just too many other variables; and besides, the Taycan 4S is no less fun, which is what really counts.
