How To: Get A Divorce When Your Wife Doesn’t Want One

If you desperately want a divorce but your significant other does not, the only logical thing to do is hire an impersonator. Clearly. A man in India brought a woman who pretended to be his wife to court, and the two said they sought a mutual divorce and were granted one immediately. Unfortunately for him, the man’s real wife found out about it, and the original divorce was suspended. Now he’s in trouble with the law and also been charged with cheating. Lying never gets you anywhere. [Reuters] Keep reading »

The Daily Hotness: The Women Of Mad Men

Mad Men is back on Sunday! It’s one of the few TV shows of true quality that I watch (though, crap, I really hope it’s time slot doesn’t conflict with Big Brother…). Anyway, while Jon Hamm does a mean job playing sexy ad exec Don Draper, the true stars of the show in our eyes (but clearly not the stinkin’ decision makers behind the Emmy nominations) are the female characters portrayed by Elizabeth Moss, January Jones, and Christina Hendricks. It seems kind of ironic that a show which portrays the sexist working conditions in corporate America in the 1960′s was honored only for its male cast members, but we digress. These women are hot not just in looks, but in talent. We can’t wait to see what havoc Betty Draper, Peggy Olson, and Joan Holloway will cause those boys in Season Two. [AMCTV.com] Keep reading »

Fish Were First To Make Mating Noises

After studying the nerve networks of a bunch of vertebrates, scientists think that fish were the first animals to make audible mating calls. “I’m not saying fish have a language or are using higher powers of the brain,” said lead researcher Professor Andrew H. Bass of Cornell Uniersity. “But some of the networks of neurons, nerve cells in the brain, are very ancient.” Andrew and his team have found two sounds used by fish: A humming sound the male makes to attract the female to his next, which sounds like a motor running, and a grunt, used to protect nesting territory.

We See Chick Flicks, Er, Action Movies Starring Dearly Departed Aussies: The Dark Knight

The Dark Knight
Starring Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Aaron Eckhart, & Gary Oldman
Directed by Christopher Nolan

Before walking in the theater (and for the record, I bought my ticket four days in advance because it was obvious every showing the opening weekend was going to sell-out) I already knew The Dark Knight was going to be my favorite movie that I’ve seen in awhile. And I told everyone I knew. Which is why it’s a good thing it did turn out to be as amazing as I expected, because I HATE having to lie in order to save face. Unlike a lot of movies that are way overhyped and don’t live up to our expections, cough, Sex and the City, cough, The Dark Knight, and especially Heath Ledger, was everything I hoped and more. I left really psyched and also really pissed off that Heath was dead and wouldn’t be back for the third in the new series of darker Batman movies, while idiot trolls like Brooke Hogan still walk around flapping their gums. Sigh. Not fair. Anyway, if you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want a second spoiled, don’t read on.

Poll: How Old Were You When You Went On Your First Date?

iCarly‘s 15-year-old star Miranda Cosgrove told People she hasn’t gone on a real date yet. “I can go on double dates with my friends. It’s the big time to get a boyfriend, I guess. My best friend goes on a date and calls me and tells me all the details like 20 times.” This got us thinking about our first dates…I think my mom drove me and the boy to the movies. Keep reading »

NYC Abandons Plans To Stop Public Transit Pervs

While any woman who has ever ridden public transportation most likely has a story about some jerk who copped a feel or a shifty-eyed loser who made her switch cars, almost none of us come forward to complain about the creep. So back in March, Boston launched a campaign to bust pervs on public transportation. Working with the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center, they posted subway ads encouraging woman to tell the authorities when they experience unwanted sexual advances on public transit and even policewomen went under cover to catch the cretins. Thanks to their efforts, Bostonians have begun to take action too and there has been a spike in reported cases. Mission accomplished! New York was supposed to following in their footsteps to curb a similar sexual harassment problem in the city, but before the ads were even posted, they were pulled. Keep reading »

The Dark Knight Is Bad For Small Bladders

Over on the Los Angeles Times blog All the Rage, Monica Corcoran complains that The Dark Knight is too long for its female fans. At 2 hours and 32 minutes in length, the movie is tad lengthy, and when Monica watched the movie on Sunday, seven women took bathroom breaks at the two hour mark. While movies like Titanic (3 hours, 17 minutes) and Sex and the City (2 hours, 22 minutes) are practically as long or longer than The Dark Knight, adrenaline makes us have to go to the bathroom, and there wasn’t much in SATC that would cause nervousness, unless you got all spastic about Big leaving her at the altar, which happened in the first hour anyway. As for how not to miss out on the action, we recommend forgoing beverages at the concession stand. [LA Times]

Amelia saw the movie this weekend and didn’t run into any issues with a bladder that overfloweth, but for a more varied sample, she took a poll of other women she knows who saw it. Their responses (via IM and Tumblr) after the jump… Keep reading »

Japanese iPhone Doesn’t Allow For Sneaky, Dirty Pictures

Apparently the iPhone being sold in Japan is slightly different from the U.S. version. A freelance journalist based in Tokyo reported that even when its in silent mode, the Japanese version makes a shutter sound when the user takes a photo. This is because Japanese phone manufacturers don’t want to be seen as supporting the taking of upskirt pictures (photos taken up the skirts of girls). If this is true, it’s great for Japanese women, but now I’m a little concerned about the American version’s ability to take silent photos. We must all be careful as we walk up stairs while wearing skirts. [Nobilog Returns via CrunchGear] Keep reading »

Happy National Ice Cream Month!

Sure, July’s most famous holiday is the one celebrating our fine nation’s birth, but let’s not forget one of the month’s other noteworthy events: National Ice Cream Month. In 1984, Ronald Reagan designated the whole month as such, and he also named the third Sunday of July (yesterday) National Ice Cream Day. His proclamation called for people to observe these with “appropriate ceremonies and activities.” I neglected to eat any ice cream yesterday, but in the last 10 days of the month, I plan to give ice cream a proper celebration.
