Barack Obama To Talk About Being A Papa

Sasha and Malia Obama must be two of the only girls on in the country who aren’t embarrassed by their father. Sure, he makes a corny joke every now and then, but come on—in addition to the whole being president thing, he dresses well, plays a mean game of basketball, and got them the puppy they’d been begging for all year. Not to mention that, about a week before being inaugurated, he wrote an open letter to them in Parade Magazine. “I know that you’ve both had a lot of fun these last two years on the campaign trail, going to picnics and parades and state fairs, eating all sorts of junk food your mother and I probably shouldn’t have let you have. But I also know that it hasn’t always been easy for you,” he wrote. “When I was a young man, I thought life was all about me—about how I’d make my way in the world, become successful, and get the things I want. But then the two of you came into my world with all your curiosity and mischief and those smiles that never fail to fill my heart and light up my day. And suddenly, all my big plans for myself didn’t seem so important anymore. I soon found that the greatest joy in my life was the joy I saw in yours.”

Yeah, that made me a little teary, too. Barack Obama takes being a father very seriously. Which makes sense considering that his own dad—a Kenyan man who fell in love with a white midwestern woman while studying at the University of Hawaii—left when Barack was two. Keep reading »

How To Cope With A Sex Scandal

We’re not fans of the “sex scandal” road to success. (Ya hear, Levi Johnston?) But that doesn’t mean we still can’t learn something from a D-lister who paid the rent because the notches on their bedpost.

Former D.C. staffer Jessica Cutler got herself a book deal (The Washingtonienne) from having anal sex with Bush employees for money and blogging it. So The Daily Beast has turned to Cutler for her sage counsel after news this week that a married, born-again Christian senator, John Ensign of Nevada, wasn’t quite as into “family values” as he purported to be. (Ensign recently admitted to an affair with Cynthia Hampton, who is married to an aide in the senator’s office.)

But you don’t have knocked boots with a hypocritical politician to appreciate Jessica’s scandal-snuffing tips. After all, nearly everyone’s cell phone has a camera on it and lots of ex-boyfriends act like dicks!

After the jump, let’s see how Jessica’s advice for “scandalettes” in the public eye can work for us normal folks and our everyday dramas. [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »

Top Five Reasons To Date The Sidekick Instead Of The Leading Man

I love a hero. It’s hard to resist those devastatingly handsome leading men who duel evil at great personal cost. And yet, I have more of a thing for the sidekick. Sure their characters are underdeveloped and their emotional growth is equal to that of a chia pet, but sidekicks are severely underrated. Just because the sidekick wasn’t born with an ultra cool destiny or figure out how to get bitten by a radioactive spider doesn’t mean he doesn’t deserve love. Besides for the tiny fact that sidekicks have an annoying tendency to die, here is why the sidekick is undoubtedly better boyfriend material. Keep reading »

How To Date On Craigslist

I couldn’t help it; his email was password was just too easy to crack. His cat’s name? He must’ve wanted me to take a peek.

My fingers hesitantly pecked at the inbox, and suddenly, I was reading my recent ex’s email. To my horror, he had placed a singles ad on Craigslist. He truly was moving on. Keep reading »

Beyonce Goes After Bootleggers

This must just be the week of frivolous lawsuits!

Beyonce has filed a federal lawsuit in New York against a group of people who are selling bootleg copies of her CDs and other knock-off merchandise at her concerts around the world.

According to TMZ, her legal team hasn’t been able to track down exactly who’s selling the unauthorized goods (how you sue an unknown person is a mystery to me), but they’re anticipating the sales continuing at Bey’s upcoming Madison Square Garden concerts on June 21st and 22nd so they’re trying to get a judge to rule the merch illegal.

Yes, there is such a thing as being “genetically blessed.” Take, for example, Cindy Crawford and her two impecably cheek-boned children. Her son, Presley, is Mr.-Beach-Surfer-Child-Adorable and do you see Kaia, her little seven year old daughter? She’s already crazy beautiful—Cover Girl, Sport Illustrated Swimsuit issue, Vogue, everyone will be calling in about five years (if they aren’t already).

Super Sperm

I love the scene in “Look Who’s Talking” where the basic rule of human reproduction plays out on screen: the fastest sperm wins the race to the egg. But in the animal kingdom at large, that is not always the case. Scientists have found an ancient species called Ostracods where the largest sperm won. Even though Ostracods were kinda snail like and less than centimeter long, the males produced sperm nearly ten times their size. I can only imagine that super sperm would make reproduction mega painful, but fear not! Evolution endowed the female sea critters with huge cavities (pictured above is an X-ray image of one cavity half filled with the massive man juices) nearly a third of their body size, to store the mammoth sperm. Well now you know: when it comes to the big O (O, meaning “Ostracod”), bigger is better. [IO9] Keep reading »
