Elias Theodorou Has A Shampoo Contract Because Of His Hypnotic Hair

Elias Theodorou

Elias Theodorou

UFC fighter Elias Theodorou happens to have a luscious, hypnotic head of hair.

Because of this, he also has a new pitchman contract with Pert Plus shampoo.

And because we a) think this is hilarious, and b) support anything UFC fighters do to earn themselves extra cash in lieu of that shitty Reebok contract they have to work under, Sarah talked to Elias about this development.

Sima Azimi, Afghanistan’s First Female Wushu Instructor

Sima Azimi

Sima Azimi

Shaolin Wushu Club of Afghanistan might be among the bravest, boldest martial arts clubs in the world right now.

That’s because the group, led by Sima Azimi, is bringing martial artist training to women in a conservative society where female improvement of this sort is frowned upon.

Sarah wrote about this for Asian World Of Martial Arts.

Eric Roberts vs. Robert Vaughn, Podcast Style

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

Eric Roberts and Robert Vaughn

We here at Risky Fuel believe in the principle that you “find your people.”

So if, say, you’re the sort of person who is super-obsessed with late actor/spy Robert Vaughn, all you have to do is check in with someone who’s obsessed with actor/cartoon villain Eric Roberts to put together that the two of them had worked together on the film A Cry From Within.

Next thing you know Sarah is on episode #42 of the Eric Roberts Is The Fucking Man podcast talking to host Doug Tilley about Vaughn and Roberts.

You can listen to/download the podcast by going here.

The Benefits Of An Integrated Classroom

In Sarah’s latest column for The Establishment she explained the many benefits to having disabled students share the same classrooms as able-bodied students.

There are a number of social and societal benefits to these integrated classrooms. Not the least of which is preparing students for a future where they themselves or their loved ones will most likely experience a disability of their own.

On Cold Weather Hives And Being A Winter Shut-In

It's gonna be cold outside this winter.

It’s gonna be cold outside this winter.

The weather outside today in Toronto is -9 C, -16 C with the wind chill.

Sarah will not be going outside in this weather.

This, because she suffers from a condition called cold urticaria, where cold weather can make her break out in tremendously uncomfortable hives.

She wrote about what it’s like to be housebound in winter for Refinery 29.
