Various media outlets are reporting on a new study that suggests sex is a better form of exercise than walking.
The New York Post headline says “Sex can be good, but not great, exercise.”
But let’s take a closer gander at the study by researchers at Montreal’s University of Quebec and reveal its myriad flaws.
Racism isn’t funny, but idiots keep trying.
The latest proof comes from Florida, where a convicted felon smeared black paint on his face in an attempt to resemble someone without a criminal record, Trayvon Martin.
As most of you know, Martin was killed in a fight with serial-speeder George Zimmerman, who was found not guilty in July. Many who disagree with that verdict would agree that going to a Halloween party in blackface to look like someone who was shot to death is a bad idea.
The photo of the insensitive partygoers has been making the rounds on social media, and some have provided “youth” as an excuse for dumb.
I have no problem with young people doing stupid things. I did a few dumb things myself, but people called me on it.
The Smoking Gun website is calling out these people and says the man dressed as Trayvon is not that young, but he is a felon.
“William Filene, 25, dressed up as Martin,
Last November, it was a battle of political heavyweights. Next month, capitalist titans Microsoft and Sony will be going toe-to-toe as they release new, highly-anticipated video game consoles.
Unlike politics and most video games, there’s expected to be two winners in the console wars.
First out of the gate will be Sony’s PlayStation 4 ($400) on Nov. 15. About 725,000 U.S. customers have already signed up for a PS4.
On Nov. 22, Microsoft’s competing Xbox One ($500) will hit store shelves. More than 525,000 units have been pre-ordered, according to Forbes.
Due to demand, it may be difficult to find either console in November.
Friday, Microsoft was in Atlanta pimping the successor to the Xbox
It’s an unfortunate thing for humanity that karma does not exist.
If it did, the population of jerks walking the Earth would crash faster than healthcare.gov and people that do awful things wouldn’t be allowed to file lawsuits.
But a former University of California Davis police officer made infamous by pictures and videos of him pepper spraying seemingly harmless Occupy protesters sued and won more than the people he casually hosed down with chemicals.
Lt. John Pike, 40, was recently awarded $38,000 in worker’s compensation because he suffered from depression and anxiety due to public outcry after the November 2011 incident.
The students successfully sued the university for $1 million, or about $30,000 per affected demonstrator.
Millions of people that watched the YouTube video thought Pike’s actions were criminal, but fellow police officers (aka
Technology has made it a lot easier to embarrass yourself.
The Snapchat app, for instance, makes it possible to take a “temporary” photo with your phone and send it to someone. The photo is supposed to disappear from your friend’s phone after a few seconds, but what’s to stop him or her from capturing a screenshot?
So, call me a crusty, old-fashioned curmudgeon if you will, but I think taking nude photos of yourself and sending them hither and yon across the Internets is a bad idea.
A teaching assistant at the University of Iowa would likely agree. Reports are that the young lady accidentally attached a zip file of nude photos to a homework assignment email she sent to about 80 students.
It didn’t take long for people for figure out the problem. The teacher seems to
Even losers need love, which may explain the popularity of online dating.
It seems liars need love too. According to a new Pew Research Center study, the interwebs are chock full of ‘em.
To save you the trouble of having to read the entire 57-page PDF I will list some highlights:
Fake Twitter accounts can be hilarious and, if you work in the White House, get you fired.
Jofi Joseph, a senior National Security Council staffer, was sent packing after the Obama administration figured out they were employing one of their harshest and best-informed critics.
Joseph was in the major leagues of politics, working on negotiations with Iran over their nuclear program and “a range of multilateral arms control treaties.”
He had served in the Obama administration since 2009, but it was his @NatSecWonk Twitter account that made people talk.
Joseph started texting hand grenades in 2011 and soon became a darling of the media.
The demise of his Twitter account was reason enough for Foreign Policy magazine to pen something of a love letter.
“Like a sniper in his hide, NatSecWonk delivered blows from his or her darkened perch. Anyone in the
Nothing spoils romance quite like flatulence.
An article by The New York Daily News that was likely written by someone in marketing says the “award-winning healthcare product is particularly useful for sufferers of digestive disorders such as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome), Crohn’s disease, Colitis and food intolerances.”
But a photo of a beautiful woman shoving her scentless derriere into a happy man’s face illustrates the true purpose of the nigh-magical undergarments — it’s finally safe for humans to socialize like dogs.
As might be expected, the military-industrial complex has created a product as potent as any bomb dropped by a chili dog-eating husband who has given up on anything more
The South may rise again, but it likely won’t be because of increasing levels of income or educational quality.
The Washington Post lead pretty much sums it up: “A majority of students in public schools throughout the American South and West are low-income for the first time in at least four decades, according to a new study that details a demographic shift with broad implications for the country.”
To be considered poor, a student must be eligible for free or reduced lunches. Eligibility varies according to household size, but a family of four would have to have an annual household income below $43,000 for a child to be eligible for a reduced lunch, $30,000 for a free lunch.
Mississippi has the greatest percentage of poor students (71 percent), according to the study by the Southern Education Foundation. Georgia is ranked 6th (57 percent). Thirteen of the 17 states that have majority poor students are
When times are tough many Americans turn to their faith, family or friends to get them through.
Some may also turn to pornography.
The world’s most popular porn site says web traffic spiked during the partial government shutdown.
The pornhub.com press release, which is safe for work, says “it’s as if Bill Clinton was back in office.”
Here’s how the excited porn purveyor put it: “Country wide there has been an increase of 4.5%, while the states with the highest spikes have been Nevada (up 42%), Oklahama (up 21%), and Florida (up 14%). Only Missouri (nicknamed the ’show me state’) is down 4.5%. … Maybe they’re providing all the new content instead of viewing it!”
Well isn’t that lovely.
Nevada, where you can pay to have sex with real human beings, had a 42% increase. Why? Either pornhub analysts don’t know how to run a calculator or we’ve found the NSA’s headquarters.
Georgians, who excel at everything except
