Is it almost the year 2030? I certainly hope so, because I plan to be traveling a lot that year. The hotel chain Travelodge has published a study about what we can expect our hotel sleep accommodations to be like in the future. Here’s what we have to look forward to according to engineer Ian Pearson:
We will be able to replay our favorite dream from a menu just like choosing a movie. Also, we will be able to link into dreams with our partner or family and friends and enjoy a shared dream experience.

Anyone else got a case of the icks yet? Keep reading »
On Monday, when conservative blogger Andrew Breitbart (left) released the images Anthony Weiner had sent to assorted e-conquests in a slow reveal throughout the day, Breitbart made it clear that he was not going to reveal one final image, the most lewd of the bunch. “I am doing this to save his family,” he explained. “I’m trying to do the decent thing here and not release the photo.” Except that yesterday, Breitbart put the image on his phone and showed it to Opie and Anhony while doing a radio interview with them. The infamous shock jocks were filming the interview and took a screengrab of the picture. They promptly posted it on their Twitter feed.

Rep. Anthony Weiner‘s staff has the same concern as men afraid of clap: protecting their Weiners, er, wieners. The latter group can protect themselves with these distasteful but nevertheless amusing $4.95 Weiner condoms.
