Science! It’s a wonderful thing. For instance, thanks to science, we now know that 3 out of 4 photos that British people post on Facebook are taken while drunk. A study done by MyMemory.com polled 1,781 Brits who admitted that around 75 percent of the photos they were tagged in were taken while under the influence. Said Rebecca Huggler of MyMemory: “The fact that over three quarters of the average Brits’ Facebook photos are under the influence of alcohol was certainly interesting to find out, particularly when you consider what this says about us as a nation enjoying a drink or two!”

Or, it may just mean that we’re more inclined to let our guards down and let our friends snap photos of us when we’ve tossed back a couple. Tell us: Are most of your Facebook photos taken while tipsy? [Newslite]

Escort Offers “Toys For Tots” Discount To Johns

Competition has spiked among retailers this holiday season, and the sex industry is no exception. A Texas escort is trying to beat the competition by offering discounts to charitable customers who are willing to help needy children.

Shelby is competing for the attention of holiday Johns by advertising a pre-Christmas “Toys for Tots Special” to convince consumers to open their wallets for a “sensual” experience. Read more…

Pep Rally Prank Has An Incestuous Twist

Watch Video

It’s Oedipus meets high school pep rally in this story from Rosemont High School in Minnesota. As part of a traditional prank in conjunction with the pep rally, respective team captains were blindfolded and told they had to guess the mystery person who was to kiss them. The kicker: it was their parent. I’m sorry, innocent peck or not, I would be mortified if I removed my blind fold and saw my mom or dad standing there. Apparently the video has been edited to seem more intense than the actual lighthearted event.

What are your thoughts? A good joke, or life-scarring? [Gawker]

A pro-choice organization boldly named The Abortion Gang began a personal pledge that has turned into a unique funding project — they’re urging fans of the Denver Broncos to make a donation to pro-choice groups every time star player Tim Tebow scores a touchdown. The reason behind the idea, coined “10 for Tebow,” is a little unconventional — Tim Tebow is notoriously pro-life. He’s even made a commercial with his mother in support of the organization Focus on the Family, a non-profit that is devoutly pro-life, anti-homosexual, anti-gay marriage, and against all sex education that goes beyond abstinence-only counseling.
