Since I love to keep up with pop culture, and the idea of wearing a pair of jeans that are both comfortable and look great sounded too good to be true, I decided it was time for me to try out a pair of Pajama Jeans for myself.

Pop psychology and the real science it shamelessly parodies have almost nothing in common. Unfortunately, far more than only 12 myths perpetuated by pop culture frauds backstroking through the pools of money afforded them by the cult of personality exist out there.

NEW YORK (AP) — Fifty years after cosmic rays transformed him into a man ablaze, Marvel Entertainment has extinguished the Human Torch's flame and his life, too, as the pop culture purveyor of super heroes and villains embarks on an ambitious story line that ends the Fantastic Four.
In the newest issue of one of the company's longest-running comic books, Johnny Storm's life is taken amid a massive battle that writer Jonathan Hickman has been scripting for a year-and-half.
While Marvel has made no secret that a member of the quartet, which was introduced in August 1961, would die, exactly who among the group would fall has been a closely held secret, until the release Tuesday of issue No. 587.
It's the Human Torch, leaving teammates Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman and the Thing to pick up the pieces and move forward.
Hickman, along with his editor, Tom Brevoort, have been unsurprisingly mum on what the future may hold for the characters, but one thing is certain, the end is nigh for the Fantastic Four next month.
Brevoort, senior vice president for publishing at Marvel told The Associated Press that "588 is the final issue of the Fantastic Four. Beyond that, we're not ready to say exactly what we're doing. There won't be an issue 589."
All he would say about the future was that the various subplots and threads that Hickman has written "will converge in a new thing that will be exciting and different and yet, very familiar and very much the same."
Readers have weighed in online, on Twitter and in comic shops about the buildup to the new issue, debating about who should die and who should live.
"Our readers get heavily involved in the lives of these characters. They fight alongside them, they share their triumphs and pitfalls," he said. "They live with them and they grasp them very tightly to their breast. They take them on in a very one to one, very personal sort of way."
But is death really the end and, more so, will it be permanent? After all, death has previously visited the Fantastic Four, which was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby.
Sue Storm, the Invisible Woman, supposedly died, but that was just a ruse. Similarly, her husband, Reed Richards, aka Mr. Fantastic, was thought dead after being caught in a blast with his archenemy, Dr. Doom. Instead of death, however, Richards and his nemesis were snatched away to another dimension.
Indeed, death is not uncommon in comic books. DC killed Superman in the 1990s, only to bring him back. At Marvel, Captain America was assassinated on the steps of a court house and returned, while Marvel's mutant band of X-Men know death so well that the Grim Reaper is on speed dial — Thunderbird, Phoenix, Nightcrawler and others have been felled.
Roy Thomas, who was a writer and assistant editor at Marvel in the 1960s and, later, its editor-in-chief from 1972-1974, said that since comics try to mirror real life, death is always a specter.
"The thing that is the most unrealistic is that so few people (have) died, good, bad or otherwise," he said. "If they did, they always managed to come back."
Thomas said he hated to see a member of the Fantastic Four die, but the Human Torch may not be gone forever.
"Whether it's Superman, the Thing or Bucky, if someone wants to bring them back to life later, you can't bury them deep enough or tear them into enough pieces" to keep that from happening. "Death is not a permanent condition in the comic book universe."
Joe Quesada, Marvel's chief creative officer, recognized that death, while potent, is not necessarily lasting and that the death of a character in comics has turned out "to be very cliche" in plot developments.
"Whether the human torch comes back or not is really a question that will be answered in time," he said.
"While I will never discount that a character can come back from the dead because it is one of the staples of comic book story telling . I'm not going to tell you if he will, or when he will and if he does, how he will, but I can assure you that it's going to be very, very interesting and not what anyone expects."

So, now we know. Oprah has a half-sister. How cool!
A sibling who knew they were related since 2007, but did not want to reveal to the press or anyone except Oprah and the Winfrey family of her existence.
What a gem; or, excellent way to play the game. You now have Oprah's complete trust!
The woman's name is Patricia and she had been searching for her birth mother for years.
Imagine that, finding out that your long lost sister is Oprah Winfrey. It's like winning the lottery!
The two met on Thanksgiving Day of last year.
Oprah Winfrey, greets her half-sister Patricia on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show taped at Harpo Studios in Chicago on Jan. 19. Winfrey revealed the relationship in a show aired Monday. (George Burns/Harpo Productions/Associated Press)
On the day that Patricia was told by the state adoption agency that her birth mother did not want to be contacted, Patricia saw Winfrey's mother interviewed on a television program where she discussed how two of her children had passed away. Winfrey's mother also discussed how one of the children's name was Patricia.
"The hairs on the back of my neck stood up," Patricia said. "Because I knew one of my siblings and I shared the same name."
DNA tests have been performed to prove that Patricia is Oprah's sister.
It never occurred to Gossip Pearls that Moms would be the one with a child floating around somewhere. We always thought it would the father.
Mom should have come out with the secret a long time ago!
What's up with Mom!!!So, now we know. Oprah has a half-sister. How cool! A sibling who knew they were... more
Is Greyson Chance Going To Be Justin Bieber’s Pop Culture Replacement? - National New American Music | Examiner.comustin Bieber is the current golden child of pop culture and, as such, he is a character created for mass consumption by hormone addled teen girls which have been a cash cow for the entertainment industry ever since Walt Disney and company first started milking it. I’m wondering if Justin can make the transition from child sensation to adult music or if he will have the frequent crash and burn experience that is so common to child sensations. After all, the clock is ticking. Justin is 16 now and won’t be able to hold off that voice change forever (despite Michael Jackson’s success at doing it).
Enter Greyson Chance. Discovered last year after uploading a video of himself performing lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” at a sixth grade talent showcase he has already appeared on “Ellen” and gotten a music contract. So I am wondering if he is the next elementary school superstar in waiting to take over the reigns from an aging Biebs.

Disney teamed up with Hurley to design a line of body-conscious, occasionally glow-in-the-dark, TRON-inspired fashions. You can choose from everything from basic t-shirts to faux-leather trimmed hoodies and skinny jeans. There's even a long-sleeved black mini-dress with day-glo electric blue piping, for that hard-core "on the grid" look.
