While Filip Kostic is on the verge of becoming Juve’s newest signing, la Gazzetta dello Sport (via ilBianconero) provided us with some of the most interesting and bizarre facts about the player.Born on the 1st of November 1992, the Serbian shares the same birthday with Juventus, as the club was founded on the same date, just 95 years earlier. So perhaps he was always meant to don the famous black and white jersey.While he eventually managed to establish himself as one of the best stars of the Bundesliga, the winger’s time in Germany began on a sour note. Following Stuttgart’s relegation in 2016, the club’s supporters attempted to sell Kostic on eBay!In the end, he made the move to Hamburg before joining Frankfurt two years later. Yet, the player was repeatedly linked with various Serie A clubs in the past few years. Fiorentina, Inter and Roma all came knocking on the door, but a deal never materialized.But the most awkward episode remains the 29-year-old botched transfer to Lazio last summer. While the player was set to sign for the Biancocelesti on deadline day, the official offer from the club never reached Frankfurt, as Lazio sent it to a wrong email address.The legend says that the Germans gave the Italian club the wrong address on purpose as they never intended to sell Kostic in the first place. Whatever the case may be, let’s hope that our management double-checks before pressing the “send” button.Finally, Kostic is considered to be amongst the hottest athletes in Serbia, He even received an offer to appear on the Dutch version of “Playboy”, but respectfully declined the proposal, instead focusing on his other great passion, golf.
As for the scene that shocked Antony Starr most on "The Boys," Starr admitted to Collider it included the incredible shrinking supe known as Termite (Brett Geddes) and his, ahem, invasive sexual encounter in the Season 3 premiere. As he said so eloquently, "I reckon a man shrinking himself down to get inside the eye of a penis, and then sneezing and exploding inside that other man, definitely was something." Starr goes on to admit his reaction to the scripted scene was that it likely went too far. He also claimed that view changed when he watched the episode, "Then, when I saw it, I just laughed ... It didn't even seem dirty to me." The actor, who's partaken in no shortage of bizarre moments as Homelander, admitted a level of desensitization may be taking hold after a few years with "The Boys." Starr claimed he's also learned to trust the writers with indelicate scenes because "Every time I see how it turns out, in the end, I'm wrong, and it's worth it." Indeed, in a show that truly knows no bounds when it comes to shocks, such outlandish moments have been elevated to an anarchic art form. It helps, of course, that the show is every bit as bold in its messaging on heady topics like politics, corporate malfeasance, religious extremism, the media, and pop culture. That uncanny mix of shameless pulp, indulgent pop, and piercing intellectualism is partly why Forbes once labeled "The Boys" the best superhero show on TV. And it's why viewers keep coming back for more.

JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean Blu-Rays Offer Hint At Part 3's Release Window – ComicBook.com
Between the first and second parts of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean, fans will have had to wait for around nine months to return to the story of Jolyne Cujoh on Netflix. While a release date for a possible third part of the series hasn't been revealed as of yet, a new physical release schedule not only confirms that a third part is on the way but also might give fans of the Joestars a better idea of how long we'll be waiting for the final part of Jolyne's story.The first part of the Stone Ocean arrived on Netflix in December of last year, 2021, with many fans finding themselves taken aback when it was discovered that Part 2 would be released several months later well into 2022. While a Part Three was never officially confirmed as of yet, it would make sense considering how much material the anime adaptation would have to cover if it were following the story of the original manga to the letter. Luckily, should this physical release coincide with the series' release on Netflix, perhaps fans will be waiting for significantly less amount of time than the gap between parts one and two.The official JoJo's Bizarre Adventure website confirmed that a third blu-ray box set for Stone Ocean will arrive in May of next year, potentially meaning that the wait for the third part of the series will be much shorter than the stretch between the first twelve episodes of Jolyne's story and the batch arriving this September on the streaming service: JoJo's Bizarre Adventure: Part 6 – Stone Ocean Blu-Ray BOX sets will be released! https://t.co/PYNvlihztZ~ Release Dates ~ BOX 1: November 30, 2022 BOX 2: February 24, 2023BOX 3: May 31, 2023 pic.twitter.com/yKvgLtcDzq— STICKER ⋆ ⁽ᴶᴶᴮᴬ₋ᴺᴱᵂˢ⁾ (@StickerTricker) August 10, 2022 The website also offers a breakdown of the number of episodes that will be included in the three box sets, with thirty-eight potentially set to be the total installments that will make up Stone Ocean when all is said and done. While the likes of Steelball Run and JoJolion have yet to be confirmed for anime adaptations of their own, considering the success that Hirohiko Araki's anime franchise has seen in recent years, it would be a good bet that we'll one day see Parts 7 and 8 hit the small screen.0commentsDo you think we'll see the third part of the Stone Ocean arrive early next year? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of the Joestars.
A mind-bending video that shows two wild horses “walking on water” is sending social media into a frenzy. The viral clip was recorded by Kelli Rogers last month while she was paddleboarding with her two grandchildren on the Salt River in Tonto National Forest, Arizona. During the expedition, the intrepid nana noticed the two majestic animals standing in the shallows of the river and whipped out her phone to film them. Rogers was left stunned when she watched the footage back and saw that the horses appeared to be floating along the surface of the water. “It gives the illusion that they [the horses] were the ones floating or paddle boarding, not us,” Rogers told Kennedy News. The two wild horses appear to be majestically floating down the river in Rogers’ viral video. Kennedy News/Kelli Rogers “Are the two horses called JESUS & CHRIST?” one viewer asked, claiming the clip had Biblical overtones. Kennedy News/Kelli Rogers The 58-year-old decided to share the optical illusion video on social media, where it quickly went viral, racking up 8.3 million views on TikTok alone. The footage also inspired hundreds of humorous comments. “Are the two horses called JESUS & CHRIST?” one viewer asked, claiming the clip had Biblical overtones. “This isn’t okay to watch when you aren’t sober!” another cheekily added. The intrepid nana is seen with her granddaughter while paddleboarding on the Salt River in Tonto National Forest, Arizona. Kennedy News/Kelli Rogers Rogers and her two young grandchildren are pictured. The grandmother’s video has clocked up more than 8.3 million views on TikTok alone. Kennedy News/Kelli Rogers Many were unable to wrap their brains around the fact that Rogers was the one who was floating down the river, while the horses were standing still. “It’s like when you’re parked and the car next to you moves and you think your car is moving,” one viewer explained. “It took me five views to process what was going on,” another admitted, while a third could simply could not believe their eyes. “I’m not understanding at all,” they neighed.

Donald Trump has been in a state of “panic” and utter disbelief since the FBI raided his Mar-a-Lago home to retrieve National Archives documents, his estranged niece Mary Trump said Monday evening.Mary Trump, a psychologist who wrote the Trump family tell-all book “Too Much and Never Enough,” told MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell her uncle’s angry public statement about Monday’s raid was revealing.Advertisement “This is just another example in a very long line of examples of Donald’s narcissism and sense of entitlement,” she told O’Donnell. “He may have been told it was coming, but he could not possibly believe it was coming — because it never has.”“So I think that’s where that panic is coming from, and of course he’s also pivoting where he always pivots — to undermining the legitimacy of any investigation into his potential wrongdoing,” she added.She also noted that while Trump was probably informed of the search beforehand, he was still likely shocked Attorney General Merrick Garland’s Justice Department actually followed through.
Desperate to change the subject to something else ― anything else ― after the FBI raided former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida on Monday, Republicans are pushing an extremely weird and false talking point: Tens of thousands of tax collectors are coming for you.“The FBI raiding Donald Trump is unprecedented,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) tweeted late Monday. “The Biden Admin has fully weaponized DOJ & FBI to target their political enemies. And with 87K new IRS agents, they’re coming for YOU too.”Advertisement “One more example of our two-tiered system of justice,” tweeted Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.). “Who do you think they’ll weaponize the 87,000 IRS agents against? The answer is obvious. Their political enemies.”What on earth are they talking about?It’s an incredibly disjointed effort, but Republicans are trying to gloss over the actual news ― that the FBI just spent a full day searching Trump’s Mar-A-Lago property for classified documents that he allegedly took from the White House instead of giving them to the National Archives, which is required by law ― and somehow make this about Senate Democrats passing a sweeping climate and health care package last week.The Democratic bill, which is on track for Friday passage in the House, is a major legislative victory for President Joe Biden. Among other things, it reduces the nation’s output of greenhouse gasses and makes health care more affordable. Senate Republicans all voted against it, and many were really hoping to spend the coming weeks or even months publicly attacking its scope and price tag as their reelection campaigns gain steam.Alas, the FBI had to go and ruin it for them.Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) on the FBI raiding former President Donald Trump's house in Florida: Hey, look over here at this totally unrelated thing!Drew Angerer via Getty ImagesAdvertisement Republicans have had their messaging all ready to go on the bill, including their claim that it will lead to 87,000 Internal Revenue Service agents coming for Republican taxpayers. It’s not clear where that number came from. The bill beefs up IRS enforcement by about $80 billion over the next 10 years, but that money is specifically to help the agency go after egregious tax-dodging by the ultra-rich, not average taxpayers, and it is expected to generate more than $120 billion.Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Ore.), chair of the Senate Finance Committee, made that point clear to reporters on Saturday evening, chiding Republicans for fearmongering with their claims that the new IRS resources would go toward auditing plain vanilla taxpayers.“The fact is, that’s not going to happen,” Wyden said just before the bill passed in the Senate. “It’s completely different than the wealthy tax cheats.”Nonetheless, Republicans like their IRS talking points and really don’t want to get on Trump’s bad side ahead of the midterm elections in November. So they’ve settled on talking about Democrats’ domestic policy legislation in the same breath as the FBI raiding a former U.S. president’s house as if they’re connected, which they are not at all.“Senate Democrats just passed their insane tax-and-spend package, which includes funding for more than 87,000 new IRS agents — more than State, DoD, and CBP combined,” Rep. Kat Cammack (R-Fla.) tweeted Tuesday. “This nonsense + wild weaponization of the FBI + Democrats’ inflation, crime, border crises = @HouseGOP landslide.”Advertisement “If the FBI can raid the home of a former US President, imagine what 87,000 more IRS agents will do to you,” tweeted Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.).“The same Democrats cheering on the FBI raiding President Trump’s house are trying to give the IRS 87,000 new agents and an additional $80 billion,” tweeted Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Colo.). “And we’re supposed to believe they won’t also weaponize the IRS?”In addition to spreading misinformation, GOP lawmakers are glossing over a major detail as they accuse FBI Director Christopher Wray of going after Trump for political reasons.Senate Republicans unanimously confirmed Wray in 2017. Wray himself is a Republican, and he was Trump’s appointee to the top FBI post.“The @FBI raid on President Trump was approved by Director Wray, who also claimed that the illegal FISA warrants used to spy on Trump were constitutional,” fumed Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), who voted to confirm Wray. “Today’s raid is outrageous and unjust, but predictable.”Advertisement “Using government power to persecute political opponents is something we have seen many times from 3rd world Marxist dictatorships. But never before in America,” tweeted Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), who not only voted to confirm Wray but also previously praised the FBI for looking into then-presidential candidate Hillary’s Clinton’s mishandling of emails in 2016.“The FBI’s decision regarding Clinton’s mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ’d from being Commander in Chief,” Rubio said in July 2016. Oops.The FBI's decision regarding Clinton's mishandling of classified emails once again proves that she is DQ'd from being Commander in Chief.— Marco Rubio (@marcorubio) July 5, 2016 House Republicans eager to paint the FBI as a partisan arm for Democrats, meanwhile, could use a history lesson.“The inconsistent and partisan application of the law by the FBI has gone too far,” charged Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-Tenn.). “The Democrats, for too long, have used our government agencies from the FBI to the IRS to target their political opponents.”Advertisement Except there has never been a Democratic director of the FBI.Jonathan Nicholson contributed reporting.Related...GOP Senators Refuse To Rule Out Supporting Donald Trump Again — Even If He's IndictedMinnesota Secretary Of State Candidate Questioned Non-English Speakers' Right To Vote‘Come On, Bernie!’ Why Democrats Left Child Tax Credit Out Of The Inflation Reduction Act

Eric Trump may have revealed just a little too much about how the White House operated under his father. One day after the FBI executed a search warrant on Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago home, the son of the former president claimed that President Joe Biden must have approved the action. His reasoning: That’s how it worked when Trump was in office.Advertisement Here’s the clip from Fox News: Eric Trump: I know the white house as well anyone. I know the system. This did not happen without Joe Biden's explicit approval. pic.twitter.com/HXodvDe6Qo— Acyn (@Acyn) August 9, 2022 Most modern presidents have taken pains to distance themselves from Justice Department operations with political implications. In this case, the White House said Biden found out about the search warrant the same way as everyone else: from the news. But as Twitter users were quick to point out, Eric Trump’s comments appeared to admit that wasn’t the case in the Trump White House: This actually may be a confession that Donald Trump attempted to wield power over the Department of Justice in inappropriate ways.

Stephen Colbert says former President Donald Trump may have finally met his match. The search of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort that was conducted by the FBI on Monday was part of an investigation launched by the National Archives and Records Administration. “That’s right. He’s gonna get taken down by the librarians!” “The Late Show” host exclaimed. “Oh, they’re coming for you, baby.” Advertisement Colbert also noted that librarians have three skills that make them a true threat to Trump. “They’re organized, they know where everything is and you never know which way they’re coming because they’re so quiet,” he said. “Ok, they are silent, but deadly.” See more in his Tuesday night monologue:
