Monks Macking Online

The Thai government is investigating claims that Buddhist monks are using the social networking website hi5 to flirt with women. Buddhist monks are supposed to be celibate, and even refrain from most contact with women, so this is majorly against the rules. “We urge people who use the site to tell monks to leave,” Chakrapob Penkair, a minister attached to the Prime Minister’s office, said in an AP article. “Other users need to show them that it is inappropriate for monks to chat with women online.” While the government is exploring the possibility of blocking hi5, it is supposedly the most popular social networking site in Thailand. Plus, they do not want to restrict monks from using the internet completely. According to a senior culture ministry official, “Cyberspace can be very useful for monks.” [Charleston Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Breakup Via Wikipedia and Ebay

It took a few years, but manly ingenuity has finally found a worse way to break up with someone than on a post-it note. Wikipedia creator Jimmy Wales dumped his girlfriend, Fox News commentator Rachel Marsden, through a post on his own website. The recently divorced website mogul took notice of the cute Canadian conservative because her Wikipedia page was splashed with haterade. When Marsden asked for some help editing the site, Wales offered to get her out of one sticky situation and into another via IM. The best part is, just like the breakup, you can read what they typed with one hand online thanks to his competitors at Google, whose sites’ features allowed her to save their Gchat convos. When Wales threatened to have her deported after the split, Ms. Marsden, who has a history of harassing ex-boyfriends, decided to retaliate by emailing the IMs around to the press and using eBay to sell the personal items he left behind at her apartment. One of his t-shirts with a big “white stain” is going for over $12,000. Um, why? Keep reading »

Directing Movie Sex Scenes

We know that sex scenes must be fairly awkward for actors — you try to looking like you’re turned on while an audience of cameramen, technicians, craft services, etc., watch — but what’s it like to be the person who decides who caresses/touches/kisses whom, as well as when and where? Director Michael Winner told the Observer, “[Sex scenes] weren’t uncomfortable for me except when Marlon Brando insisted on wearing pants and Wellingtons when he was meant to be naked having sex with Stephanie Beacham in an erotic scene in The Nightcomers. The cameraman kept calling ‘pants’ or ‘Wellington boots,’ indicating they were in the shot. The minute I said ‘cut’ I was on the floor crying with laughter. The scene came out superbly.” [Guardian.co.uk] Keep reading »

Someone Call Maury!

Jamie Hope had been accepting child support from Kenneth Samuels since 1997, despite suspicions that another ex-lover, Oba Wallace, was her kid’s father. As the kid grew up, a strong resemblance to Mr. Wallace emerged and eventually, it became obvious enough that Samuels petitioned the court for a paternity test to establish custody. Although Mr. Samuels had sent child support for the past 11 years because he felt he had no reason to doubt he was the baby daddy, the test proved once and for all that he wasn’t in fact the father. The court ruled that Mr. Wallace and Ms. Hope should repay Samuels for all his payments over the past decade, which totaled $14,460. Whoa, having kids in Georgia is cheaper than a fuel efficient Prius! This whole debacle made us think of Maury Povich and his awesome “You Are Not The Father!”-episodes. Check this guy out! [Note: The dude in this Maury Povich clip isn't any of the people mentioned in this story, we just thought it was funny. -- Editor]
