In case you were wondering what space tastes like when fermented with your favorite varietal, you’ll be eager to try Meterorito, a Cabernet Sauvignon infused with a piece of 4.5 billion-year-old meteor rock. Winemaker Ian Hutcheon procured the meteor, which is believed to have crashed into the desert in Chile 6,000 years ago, from an American collector. Hutcheon claims that the meteor makes the flavors “livelier” and “more potent.” When you sip a glass of this wine, you’ll be “drinking elements from the birth of the solar system,” he says. Yes, please. I’ll take a case. Is that a nose of Jupiter I detect on my palate, with a hint of Mars, and a base note of the Big Bang? [Oddity Central]

Oh, the bounty that is What Old White Men Think You Should Be Allowed To Do With Your Uterus! This weekend, Republican presidential wannabe Ron Paul sat down with Piers Morgan and, in a departure from his usual “no abortion under any circumstances” position, said he would support abortion if the woman had been raped — but only if it was an honest rape.  

Piers Morgan asked Ron Paul if his daughters or granddaughters were raped, if he could actually look them in the eye and tell them they had to carry the pregnancy to term. “If it’s an honest rape, that individual should go immediately to the emergency room, I would give them a shot of estrogen,” said Ron Paul, who is also a doctor

Honest rape“? Did he actually go there? Oh, yeah, he actually went there.  Keep reading »

People Want To Tweet And Check Their Facebook Almost As Much As They Want To Eat And Have Sex

Today’s Lady News: Lesbian Couple Fights St. Joseph’s University Over Valentine’s Day Contest

  • St. Joseph’s University is hosting a Valentine’s Day contest run by the alumni association asking alums to write about finding the love of their life at the school. The winners of the contest get a $100 gift certificate to their favorite restuarant. But when lesbian couple Megan Edwards and her fiancée Katie McTurk entered their love story in the How I Met My Hawk Mate contest, they were told “nope, no lesbos!” After a Facebook campaign by the couple (and a little bad media coverage!), St. Joseph’s University reversed its decision and is letting the lesbian couple compete. I’m glad the school finally did the right thing. (Thanks to reader Kiki for the link!) [Jezebel]

Twenty sexual partners might sound like a lot, but all you need is one roll in the hay with one person with HIV. The number of partners a person has really isn’t the point. (And FWIW, there’s also a male version of this PSA where the dude had 35 sexual partners. Point still holds true.) [Copyranter via Buzzfeed]
