    A distant cousin can be a fourth, fifth, sixth or seventh cousin. It could be a half cousin or a first cousin once removed or a third half cousin three times removed. It's not incestuous to be with a distant cousin. You could meet someone, fall in love and find out later you are fourth half cousins twice removed and you wouldn't have to divorce.

    Yep. The allegations of Michael Jackson are a tricky subject because we don't know what he was like when he was out of the spotlight. Just because you think you know the man based on interviews you've seen doesn't mean anything. I'm a huge Michael Jackson fan and all I say is don't just assume he did it but also don't discredit the people that stepped forward. We truly don't know what really happened. Only one man did and he's dead now so perhaps we'll never know.

    Bills Bills Bills is actually taken out of context SUPER often and it’s kinda sad. The song is actually about how the guy keeps spending all of her money and then trying to act like he didn’t do it. The chorus implies that I unless he’s gonna start paying her bills, he needs to stop taking her money/ using her things that cost her money.

    I find it very interesting that the FBI came after Frank Sinatra who was also a supporter of the civil rights movement. the government has a habit of labeling people communists and terrorists when they are actively involved in the civil movement. King was labeled a threat to American security and the FBI had him under surveillance.

    6:30 in the southern states of the USA, a lot of the elderly use the term "cousin" to mean someone close to the family to where they are like family by association, but not related by blood. I have an aunt, uncle, and cousin- my "aunt" was best friends with my grandma growing up and since they're so close they are family- cousin is a term used.

    The number of celebs who died after leaving rehab, makes you wonder if the rehab approach (cold turkey) isn't just a bad idea. Maybe using a more gradual integrated approach would result in less deaths. (Most deaths are when they use after leaving rehab and have lost their tolerance and so overdose on what used to be a normal amount)
