‘This’ is not going to be a debate about abortion,” Sedgwick Country District Judge Warren Wilbert said recently. But even if with the best of intentions, what he’s presiding over will seem to a lot of people to be about abortion — the trial of Scott Roeder, the anti-abortion extremist who has confessed to shooting to death Wichita abortion provider Dr. George Tiller last May. Yesterday, the judge announced he would allow Roeder to plead “voluntary manslaughter,” that he murdered Tiller because he honestly believed he was saving unborn babies.
To say women’s rights activists find Judge Wilbert’s decision controversial is putting it mildly … Keep reading »
What a mess: the one-child policy instituted in China in the 1980s to control the population has caused a total lopsidedness in the dating pool. A recent study by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences found that in 10 years there will be a serious “bride shortage,” as 24 million Chinese men will have no partner of marrying age. And you thought you had trouble getting married … Keep reading »
Focus! That’s the slogan Gatorade wanted their “Gatorade Tiger Focus” beverage to be known for—not “unfaithful.” But despite the fact that Gatorade dropped its Tiger Woods drink in early December, some merry pranksters in Denver replaced the labels on Gatorade bottles with ones reading “UNFAITHFUL” where the company’s usual “FOCUS” message should be.

“[While filming in freezing cold water] the only way to keep warm was by pouring a mix of boiling water and river water down your suit. We were finally done shooting for the day, and one of the crew guys asks if I want to warm up before I go.

And I was trying to pull the suit away from my body to somehow get away from the boiling water, and the more I pulled the suit away, the lower the water went. It just went straight down and pretty much burned the skin off the head of my d**k … I’ve been to the hospital, gotten stitches, had broken fingers and toes. But this was a suffocating kind of pain!”

I feel like I need to issue a preemptive apology to my mother, my boyfriend’s mother and my boyfriend’s grandmother: I won’t be a “fun” bride.
I will probably be more of a wet blanket, really. I won’t get excited about table settings or flower girl dresses. I won’t even care about the cake (much). I’m a little excited about buying a special dress for the Big Day, but honestly, whenever I look at wedding dress prices, I start to hyperventilate. Keep reading »

Blake Lively did her best greaser impression on February’s cover of Esquire, though I remember the guys in “Grease” wearing pants.
In unrelated news: the arch of Blake’s left eyebrow looks super-obviously Photoshopped, right? [Esquire.com]
UPDATE: Eek, how embarrassing! Commenters have correctly pointed out that the Sharks and the Jets are from “West Side Story,” not “Grease.” And I’ve seen both of those movies a million times. For shame! Keep reading »
