  • March 31, 2010 Getting Serious About Pornography It is ravaging American families. I magine a drug so powerful it can destroy a family simply by distorting a man’s perception of his wife. Picture an addiction so lethal it has the potential to render an entire generation incapable of forming lasting marriages and so widespread that it produces more annual revenue — $97 billion worldwide in 2006 — than all of the leading technology companies combined. Consider a narcotic so insidious that it evades serious scientific study and legislative action for decades, thriving instead under the ever-expanding banner of the First Amendment. According to an online statistics firm, an estimated 40 million people use this drug on a regular basis. It doesn’t come in pill form. It can’t be smoked, injected, or snorted. And yet neurological data suggest its effects on the brain are strikingly similar to those of synthetic drugs. Indeed, two authorities on the neurochemistry of addiction, Harvey Milkman and Stanley Sunderwirth, claim it is the ability of this drug to influence all three pleasure systems in the brain — arousal, satiation, and fantasy — that makes it “the pièce de résistance among the addictions.” Earlier this month, the Witherspoon Institute released a report examining “The Social Costs of Pornography,” signed by more than 50 scholars representing a wide array of professions, academic disciplines, and political views. The report details the considerable social costs that pornography exacts upon men, women, and children.
  • Wanted: 1 social game that's fun on iPhone, Facebook, TV    3-29-2010     USA TODAY    SAN FRANCISCO — Social games on Facebook are hot. But developers in that fast-growing market want more. They're in search of the Holy Grail, a killer social game that can be used interchangeably on smartphones, Facebook and big-screen TVs. "There is no question we'll see a game that can be played during the commute from your phone, on a bigger (PC screen) at work, and on a bigger (TV) screen at home," says Randy Breen, CEO of Social Gaming Network. "They exist to a limited extent, but the experience is not uniform." Early bets are on a title from a big brand name that capitalizes on a major sporting event — be it March Madness or World Cup, with the potential to reach 100 million users a month.
  • Cigarettes may contain pig blood AAP March 30, 2010 6:46PM CIGARETTES may contain traces of pigs' blood, an Australian academic says with a warning that religious groups could find its undisclosed presence "very offensive". University of Sydney Professor in Public Health Simon Chapman points to recent Dutch research which identified 185 different industrial uses of a pig - including the use of its haemoglobin in cigarette filters. Prof Chapman said the research offered an insight into the otherwise secretive world of cigarette manufacture, and it was likely to raise concerns for devout Muslims and Jews. Religious texts at the core of both of these faiths specifically ban the consumption of pork. "I think that there would be some particularly devout groups who would find the idea that there were pig products in cigarettes to be very offensive," Prof Chapman said today. "The Jewish community certainly takes these matters extremely seriously and the Islamic community certainly do as well, as would many vegetarians. "It just puts into hard relief the problem that the tobacco industry is not required to declare the ingredients of cigarettes ... they say 'that's our business' and a trade secret." The Dutch research found pig haemoglobin - a blood protein - was being used to make cigarette filters more effective at trapping harmful chemicals before they could enter a smoker's lungs
  • Sex virus blamed for rise in head and neck cancers       – Fri Mar 26, 7:40 am ET LONDON (Reuters) – The number of head and neck cancers linked to a virus spread by oral sex is rising rapidly and suggests boys as well as girls should be offered protection through vaccination, doctors said Friday. Despite an overall slight decline in head and neck cancers in recent years, cases of a particular form called oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC) have increased sharply, particularly in the developed world. This growth seems to be linked to cancers caused by the human papillomavirus (HPV), scientists said in a report in the British Medical Journal. Two vaccines -- Cervarix, made by GlaxoSmithKline, and Gardasil, made by Merck & Co -- can prevent HPV, which causes virtually all cases of cervical cancer, the second most common cancer in women worldwide. Many rich nations have launched HPV immunisation programs for girls to try to protect them from the common sexually transmitted virus before they become sexually active. The scientists, led by Hisham Mehanna of the Institute of Head and Neck Studies at University Hospital Coventry, said while including boys in immunisation plans has been seen as too expensive, it may be time to look again.
  • denver and the west Flood of medical-marijuana applications forces change The Denver Post 03/26/2010 Inundated with medical-marijuana patient applications, Colorado's health department has changed one way it handles the flood of paperwork. Starting April 1, health department workers will no longer review applications submitted at the department's walk-up window to make sure they are complete before accepting them. In a news release, the health department said that practice unfairly gave walk-up applications priority and contributed to a backlog of mailed-in applications. The department has been receiving about 1,000 applications per workday, nearly quadruple the number it was receiving per day over the summer, according to the release. The lag between when an application is received and when a license is issued has now stretched to six months. The department is awaiting legislative approval of funding to add temporary workers to help with the backlog. Read more: http://www.denverpost.com/ci_14760247#ixzz0jZ76Hq32
  • Police report attempt to revive flattened opossum CNN      March 26, 2010 8:52 p.m. EDT     (CNN) -- A Pennsylvania man attempted to resuscitate "a road-killed opossum," state police say. But this was one possum who wasn't playing possum -- the ugly creature remained dead. Troopers responding to the scene in Oliver Township on Thursday determined that Donald J. Wolfe, 55, of Brookville, was drunk, according to the police report. Several witnesses observed Wolfe's failed resurrection of the flattened marsupial, police said. It was not immediately clear how he endeavored to restore the possum's life. The arresting officer in the incident was unavailable for comment Friday. Attempts to reach Wolfe were also unsuccessful. Wolfe will be charged with one charge of public drunkenness, police said.
  • Urban Transportation Concept   03/25/10 - “The Taurus, designed by Erik Lanuza, is pretty much a Segway with a seat (you even control it by leaning forward and back). This alone puts it way closer to a Tron light-cycle than the stand-on dork-mobile . Lanuza sees it as space-efficient, zero-emission vehicle for cities. We applaud his ambition, but there are two obvious problems. There is already a space-efficient, zero-emission vehicle for cities (or anywhere else). It’s a bike. Second, as soon as Steve Wozniak gets his hands on one of these, it’ll be pressed into service for polo.” w/ photo
  • Superman comic sells for $1.5M, setting record The Associated Press Monday, March 29, 2010; 3:29 PM NEW YORK -- The record price for a comic book, already broken twice this year, has been shattered again. A copy of the 1938 edition of Action Comics No. 1 sold Monday for $1.5 million on the auction Web site ComicConnect.com. The issue, which features Superman's debut and originally sold for 10 cents, is widely considered the Holy Grail of comic books. The same issue sold in February for $1 million, though that copy wasn't in as good condition as the issue that sold Monday. That number was bested just days later when a 1939 comic book featuring Batman's debut sold for $75,000 more at an auction in Dallas. There are about 100 copies of Action Comics No. 1 believed to be in existence, and only a handful in good condition. The issue that sold Monday was rated slightly higher than the one that sold in February; it had been tucked inside an old movie magazine for years before being discovered.

  • Jesse James -- The Photo You Did Nazi Coming Mar 31st 2010 8:35AM by TMZ Staff It's easy to see why Jesse James allegedly fell for Michelle McGee -- they have the same taste in hats. We're told this photo of Jesse wearing a Waffen SS visor and striking the infamous Hilter "sieg heil" salute was taken roughly two years ago. It's unclear where the photo was taken -- but there appears to be a replica of a Fokker Dr.1 triplane -- the same one used by legendary German World War One pilot Manfred von Richthofen ... better known as The Red Baron .

  • New Space-Age Car 03/25/10 - “OK, it’s not quite as foldable as the space vehicle that cartoon figure George Jetson pops into his briefcase as he heads into the office. But the EN-V concept car, GM’s ‘automobile solution’ for the future, just might fit into an apartment foyer. The space age electric car has been designed to avoid accidents by automatically swerving around other cars by communicating with them. General Motors and its Chinese partner SAIC showcased the ‘Electric Networked-Vehicle’ yesterday in their joint pavilion at the Shanghai Expo, which opens May 1 and runs for six months. The EN-V, pronounced ‘envy’ is GM’s latest effort to burnish its credentials as a future-focused, environmentally friendly company and shed its image as the bastion of the gas guzzling Hummer .” w/ photos

So then it stands to reason that if a sword and a pen got into a duel, the pen would win. But then what if the pen fought a Machine Gun Pen? We have a strong suspicion that the Machine Gun Pen would win, but we have not tested this hypothesis. You'll have to buy a Machine Gun Pen and find out for yourself.

  • Saturday, March 27th 2010 In Failed Whore News.... Markus , Nevada's first ever legal " prosti-dude " , has packed up his peen and quit the ho business after only 2 months on the stroll. Markus started leasing his dick to lady customers at the Shady Lady Ranch back in January, but only 10 women got to leave a wad of cash on his nightstand. And 9 of those " women " were really male politicians trying to put one past Markus by dressing up in drag. I made that up (but it's probably true). The owner of Shady Lane says that Markus leaving was a mutual decision. She says he has gone back to Los Angeles to do porn. That means you can catch him chewing man ass on Corbin Fisher very soon. Shady Lane hasn't taken dick off the menu altogether, though. They have hired a dude hooker who goes by the name of Y . Yes, Y. The Y must stand for " Y The Fuck Would Ladies Pay For Dick When They Can Get It From Gerard Butler For Free?! " dlisted
  • World’s Biggest Man Boobs 03/29/10 - “ Chinese doctors claim to have discovered the biggest case of man boobs in the world after a 53-year-old dairy farmer turned up at a specialist chest clinic in Beijing . Doctor Zhang Lilan at the Jinan Chest Hospital said: “The man is in every way male except for his enormous breasts. He is a farmer and says they are extremely uncomfortable as he has to do a lot of manual work and they get in the way of everything. “He said it has also attracted a lot of attention in the village where he comes from with people turning up to point and laugh at him, so much so that he now has to wear a heavy coat to cover up his figure even in the hottest weather.” The man, 53-year-old Guo Feng, said: “About 10 years ago my chest started to get larger but I didn’t think much of it as I was putting on weight all over – but in the last few years it’s become unbearable and I have been from one hospital to the other with nobody able to help me.” w/ photos

Originally a birthday gift for Keith, David Courts and Bill Hackett have decided to lift the ban on reproductions and want to make you one of their famous solid 925 silver rings. They are pricey, but it’s not every day you get to tell Johnny Depp “who’s your daddy.” $475

  • Psychologist invents butt bra Published: March. 26, 2010 at 9:41 AM LOS ANGELES , March 26 (UPI) -- A California psychologist says she has invented a strappy device that lifts a woman's derriere like a bra lifts her breasts. The creation of Dr. Karin Hart's "Biniki" butt lifter was sparked by Hart's dissatisfaction with her own rear view after losing weight, the New York Daily News reports. Hart started using self- adhesive tape to lift her buttocks under clothing. When women at the gym inquired about her handiwork, the idea for the Biniki was born. Hart's Web site says she is currently in the process of patenting her work. Besides the Biniki, Hart has already created a Maniki for men and the Throng, a thong version of her Biniki. The Web address is www.biniki-fashions.com
  • Woman had sex with teen boys, police say Staff report Saturday, March 27, 2010 SARASOTA - A 36-year-old Venice woman was arrested Friday after authorities said she had sex with at least three underage boys after giving them drugs. Ellen Schmaling, who lives in the 400 block of Avalon Road, was charged with three felony counts of having sex with a minor between the ages of 12 and 15 and three misdemeanor counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

  • Gwendolyn Lowery Turned Trailer Home into Discount Strip Joint for Teenagers   Monday, Mar. 29 2010   ​Like any good capitalist, 27-year-old Gwendolyn Lowery identified a market need and filled it. There was an inadequate supply of low-cost strip joints catering to teen and preteen naked women enthusiasts in Cheraw, South Carolina. So Lowery decided to meet that demand... She set up a living room strip joint in her trailer home, replete with stripper pole, then marketed her services for the low, low prices of $5 for a lap dance and $20 for a "VIP special." What the VIP special exactly entailed, we're not sure. At these rock-bottom fees, she couldn't the extra paper to spell out her services in detail. The discount nakedness naturally brought in a clientele traditionally short on discretionary spending funds. Namely: boys 12-19. But her neighbors in the trailer park apparently weren't happy with the boisterous events taking place in Lady Gwendolyn's shack. They called police. When lawmen arrived, they found the fair maiden stripping for eight teenagers. Her price list was scribbled out on paper, though there's no word on whether this was done in crayon or a No. 2 pencil. She was charged with eight counts of contributing to the delinquency of a minor, plus a liquor law violation.
  • 'Doctor Shock' charged with sexually abusing male patient Canadian police investigate dozens of allegations against psychiatrist nicknamed for use of electricity to 'cure' gay soldiers    Sunday 28 March 2010 19.47 BST   A leading Canadian psychiatrist who kept accusations of gross human rights abuses in apartheid-era South Africa hidden has been charged in Calgary with sexually abusing a male patient and is being investigated over dozens of other allegations. Dr Aubrey Levin, who in South Africa was known as Dr Shock for his use of electricity to "cure" gay military conscripts, was arrested after a patient secretly filmed the psychiatrist allegedly making sexual advances. Levin, who worked at the University of Calgary's medical school, has been suspended from practising and is free on bail of C$50,000 (£32,000) on charges of repeatedly indecently assaulting a 36-year-old man. The police say they are investigating similar claims by nearly 30 other patients.
  • 15-Year-Old Girl Offers 7-Year-Old Sister Up for Gang Rape at Party   Wednesday, Mar. 31 2010 @ 12:11PM   ​It was bad enough that the 15-year-old girl decided to go to a party in Trenton, New Jersey and offer her own body for sale. Even worse is that she brought along her 7-year-old sister, putting her up to be gang-raped for money as well... It began Sunday night, when the the older girl brought her sister to a party on the 13th floor of the Rowan Towers apartment complex. Police believe as many as 12-15 boys and men were in attendance. The 15-year-old decided to whore herself for money in a bedroom with multiple partners, leaving her little sister in the living room. When she emerged, she showed her sister a wad of cash and told her to offer it up as well. Police believe 5-7 men and boys held the little girl down, then proceeded to gang rape her. They told her they would kill her if she screamed or told anyone. The 15-year-old girl collected money and watched her little sister get raped, urging her to perform for the men. When the little girl was finally let go, two people found her outside the building crying. They escorted her home, where police were already waiting. The girls' parents had already called the cops, worried that the older daughter had run away and taken the 7-year-old with her. That's when the younger girl admitted she'd been raped. When police found the 15-year-old, she too admitted to the incident. She's been charged with sexual assault, criminal restraint, terroristic threats, prostitution, and child endangerment. Now police are left to look for the men and boys who attended the party. Trenton police say more arrests are imminent.
