What would Jesus do? Not photograph himself making out with a teenage girl almost 40 years younger than him, that’s for sure.

Megachurch pastor Jack Schaap from First Baptist Church in Hammond, Indiana, took cell phone photos of himself making out with a 17-year-old girl who is a member of his congregation. Last night, churchgoers learned that Schaap had had sex with the girl when she was 16.   Keep reading »

The worst is yet to come, but it has already begun: high school and college friends whose Facebook pages are 24/7 baby pics. Babies crying. Babies smiling. Babies staring blankly at the camera. Babies in silly hats. Babies in silly outfits. Babies and mommies and daddies and dogs and cats. Babies babies BABIES. My ovaries cannot deal! Enter Unbaby.me, a free Chrome extension that recognizes babies on Facebook and replaces their images with pictures of other awesome things, like sea otters and bacon. However, now instead of babies, I am craving pieces of crispy bacon. I can’t win. [Unbaby.me]

No, that’s not the world’s creepiest ice cube — it’s “Shape Of An Angel,” a 3D ultrasound. An MRI scans your fetus and a tiny replica is printed out in a 3D printer, hovering midair in clear resin and encased in a jewelry box. (Because why not display your 3D fetus to guests inside a jewelry box?) Oh, and the whole thing will set you back $1,230.

Growing life is beautiful, yes, but a tiny plastic fetal token strikes me as raising the fetus to the level of fetish object. I hope this doesn’t take off, because looking at ultrasounds just got that much more uncomfortable! [Geekosystem]
