Astronomers Find A Trio Of Super-Earths

Despite all the Star Trek I watched as a kid, it didn’t teach me much about space or science because I almost failed astronomy in college and didn’t graduate. That said, I think the idea of the universe being filled with all these other planets and stars and what have you is insanely fascinating. And now there’s more to be psyched about! Astronomers in Europe have found a trio of “Super-Earths” surrounding a star 42-light years away, the smallest of which is four times larger than our planet. Sadly, they are too hot to support life. This is disappointing to me because one thing Star Trek did teach me is that life on other planets, in other solar systems, is not so hard to believe and generally pretty awesome.

  • Justice for puppies everywhere! Paris Hilton was stopped from buying a puppy by the staff at a pet store because it seemed too much like an impulse buy. The star is known for having a “menagerie of neglected animals.” [NY Post]

    Sex On TV: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl Wets Our Appetite

    I have a new favorite show, well, for now. Secret Diary Of A Call Girl debuted last night and I love it. A British import based on the blog by call girl Belle Du Jour. Billie Piper plays Belle (real name: Hannah), a call girl who loves sex, loves money, and loves having sex for money. Does the show glamorize prostitution? At first glance, i.e. the first episode, sure. But Belle is a high-class call girl — as she reminds us in the clip above — and isn’t exactly trolling the streets having sex to feed her drug habit. I’ve read that the show will start to reveal that Belle has a hard time keeping her professional life and her personal life as Hannah separate, but in the meantime, I found the show hilarious, sexy (oh goodness, there is much nakedness), and smart — and Billie Piper has some serious acting chops. Check out the clip above and if you like what you see, head on over to Showtime and watch the first two episodes for free. [Showtime: Secret Diary Of A Call Girl] Keep reading »

    American Apparel Starts Selling Vibrators Alongside Overpriced T-Shirts

    American Apparel, the t-shirt and clothing company well-known for its, um, amorous owner Dov Charney and its controversial advertisements (like the one at left), is getting into the pleasure business — that is, they’re officially selling the Hitachi Magic Wand (a back massager turned, uh, other massager), online and at stores nationwide. Will the Rabbit be available at The Gap next?! [AmericanApparel.net] Keep reading »

    Pro-Life Pharmacies Will Not Fill Your Birth Control Prescription

    DMC Pharmacy in Chantilly, Virginia, will sell everything from cold meds to contact solution when it opens this summer, but if you want condoms, birth control pills, or any other form of contraception, you’d better head in the other direction. The “pro-life pharmacy” sticks to a strict policy of not offering its patrons contraception or anything else that “interferes” with the procreation process. Virginia doesn’t have laws which require pharmacists to dispense prescriptions written by a physician, but luckily, there are at least five other pharmacies (pro-choice ones, we guess!) within spitting distance.

    The Daily Hotness: Daniel Craig, Crying

    Sam Taylor-Wood is a famous artist/photographer who did a series of photographs of Hollywood actors weeping. This is one of them and we think tears are becoming on 007′s cheeks. To see more, of actors like Benicio Del Toro, Jude Law, and Ryan Gosling, click here. But while you’re here, we’d like to hear your opinion — what do you think of dudes crying? I was watching Meet The Press this weekend, and when Tom Brokaw got all choked up over his pal Tim Russert, I got all weepy too. Keep reading »

    Mike Myers Has A Man Crush On Justin Timberlake

    There are no words for how excited I am to see The Love Guru. My yoga class is really big into talking about gurus and I really think Mike Myers took the spirituality a little seriously when making this comedy. Anyway, he was on The Today Show this morning and got a little blushey when talking about his co-star, Justin Timberlake, who he cast as the villian in the film. Keep reading »
