Couple Busted For Having Sex On Water Slide

Security personnel at a amusement park in Opoczno, Poland, ejected two tourists earlier this week after they were caught joining the “water slide-high club” at the top of one of the attractions.

Facility cameras captured the incident, allowing park attendants to meet the naughty couple with buckets of cold water at the bottom of the slide.

“The women was filmed straddling her boyfriend and starting to make love before the pair shot down the bright blue tunnel, in what must have been a breach of the water park rules,” Metro reports. Read more…

World’s Largest Insect Chows Down A Carrot

Discovered in New Zealand, the seven-inch long Weta Bug is the world’s largest insect. I know … ewww. But what’s extraordinary about this big, gross, bug is her appetite for carrots. “She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away. She would have finished the carrot very quickly, but this is an extremely endangered species and we didn’t want to risk indigestion,” said the man who discovered and fed her. Hey, a girl has to eat. This sounds like what happens to me when I get in front of a chocolate bar. [The Sun UK]

In my favorite scientific study of the week, researchers discovered that humans, not unlike our friends the dogs, rely quite a bit on scent to assess new people. Just because we don’t bend down and sniff butt hole doesn’t mean we’re not taking an important introductory whiff when we meet someone new. The study, done in Poland, had 30 men and 30 women without perfume, deodorant, or scented soap, wear white cotton tees. Their T-shirts were then given to people to sniff and predict what kind of person the shirt belonged to. Researchers found that we have the ability to predict certain personality traits — like extroversion, neurosis, and dominance — with great accuracy just by using our noses. This means smell is particularly important when sniffing out a mate.  Always make sure his personality smells good before accepting a second date. [Live Science]

I wish I was making this up. I really do. But no. This is real (emphasis mine): 

“Dear Mrs. Cain Don’t pay attention to these pathetic husbandless women who are jealous of women like you in happy long-term marriages. These vindictive women can’t find a husband or keep one. They are like stalkers who try to latch on to any man who shows a bit of kindness or attention to them. When these unstable women come out of the woodwork to make accusations about Herman just say, ‘Honey, get a life, I believe my husband.’ We want you to be our First Lady Mrs. Cain!”

That, my friends, is a “testimonial” from “Barbara of Nipomo, California” on the brand-spanking-new Women For Herman Cain website that launched this morning. 

Just makes you want to go right out and vote for Herman Cain, doesn’t it, ladies? Keep reading »

In Tuesday’s Lady News, we told you that former Frisky contributor Susannah Breslin has been diagnosed with breast cancer and linked to her Forbes Woman blog about the experience of getting her first mammogram and finding out the results. Susannah has received a lot of get well messages from friends and strangers alike as a result of being so open about her diagnosis; but she has also likely inspired other women to get mammograms, including women who are younger than 50, the recommended age for women to begin routine mammograms. 

One woman we know was inspired by Susannah’s diagnosis is her friend Xeni Jardin, editor at Boing Boing. Yesterday, Xeni tweeted throughout her mammogram appointment, giving readers a live, firsthand account of what to expect. As she waited for her results, Jardin expressed some fear of what she might find out. Sadly and shockingly, Xeni confirmed via Twitter last night that like Susannah, she too has breast cancer.
