Sabina Altynbekova Is Too Beautiful To Play Volleyball, Critics Say – This story just pisses me off. Sabina Altynbekova is quite adorable. There’s no denying that – but to say that she should not be allowed to live out her dreams – because of her “unbearable” attractiveness – it’s just going waaaay more than one step too far. It’s beyond the pale and it shows that women are damned if we do and damned if we don’t. 🙁

A teenage volleyball player from Kazakhstan is coming under fire, but it’s not because of her skills. It’s because of her looks.

Critics say Sabina Altynbekova, 17, is so beautiful that it’s a distraction to the sport. Even the athlete’s own coach says his team is increasingly about one player, at least as far as the fans are concerned.


Diaper-Clad Boy, 3, Crashes Aunt’s Jeep, Runs Home to Watch Cartoons

The mother of a diaper-clad, 3-year-old boy who got behind the wheel of his aunt’s Jeep Wrangler and accidentally put it into gear, sending it crashing into the side of a neighbor’s house, has been cited for failing to properly supervise her child.

…the boy got into the car again and knocked it out of gear, and it traveled down the street, up over a curb and through the neighbor’s yard, hitting the neighbor’s home. The homeowner was not home, and no one was hurt.

The police log said a 911 caller witnessed the crash and “saw the boy run from the Jeep wearing only a diaper.”

Right afterward the boy “bailed out and ran back home, and when the officer arrived at the house [the boy] was sprawled out on the couch watching cartoons like it was just another day,” Myrtle Creek Police Officer Kevin Taggart told ABC News on Sunday.
