Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Yeesh. Usually Russell Brand is a little funny, but these promos for “Saturday Night Live,” which he is hosting this weekend, are just terrible. Maybe Russell was just nervous because the musical guest is Chris Brown (boooooo) who beat the crap out of his wife Katy Perry‘s best friend Rihanna? That’s the only explanation I can surmise.

- Chop off genitals at birth. They can have them reattached at their heterosexual
wedding, in between the cake and the throwing of the bouquet.
- Force all teenagers to watch their parents having sex. Effective, although there is a risk they will never have sex again and the human race will die out.
- Rearrange human biology so that it’s men who get pregnant. It might not end verboten sexual relations, but it will probably put an end to old white guys trying to ban abortion and targeting the most vulnerable women, from rape victims to the needy poor, in the worst circumstances.
— British journalist Hadley Freeman‘s tounge-in-cheek suggestions for better ways that anti-abortion extremist groups like Live Action can use their time rather than playing “gotcha!” with Planned Parenthood by secretly videotaping them in stunt videos with fake pimps and prostitutes. Hadley suggests, quite rightly, that as much as some anti-abortion extremists are against abortion, they seem to just be plain against women having non-procreative sex, period. I recommend her whole article; it’s a good read! [Guardian UK] Keep reading »
Sigh. If only real life romances were more like those in movies and television. If I had it my way, I would have stolen Lloyd Dobler from Diane Court years ago. But alas, they are living happily ever after somewhere in London. She is probably a scientist and he is a stay-at-home dad with a successful kickboxing career. Damn them! In honor of Valentine’s Day, we’ve chosen some of our favorite fictional couples. Why can’t they be real?
A new study found that women are most attracted to the men they know the least. Researchers used Facebook profiles, real and fake, and discovered that the women liked the men best that they knew the least about. We like the guys who play hard to get and, nine times out of 10, lead to no good. Tell us something we don’t know. Like how to make us stop. I would like to take these findings and set fire to them. I’m embarrassed for us. Can we just stop being idiotic masochists when it comes to love already? [Live Science] Keep reading »
What in the name of Billy Corgan?! D’arcy Wretsky, the talented bassist from ’90s alternative band Smashing Pumpkins, was arrested on Tuesday on an outstanding bench warrant. Clearly, it was not the greatest day she’s ever known. The details of her case are pretty boring — it involves some horses getting free from a farm she owns in Michigan or something — but her mugshot is completely epic. D’arcy, what the hell happened?!
