Gay Activists Stage “Kiss-In” Protest In Barcelona

In Barcelona, 200 gays and lesbians gathered at the Sagrada Familia church this past weekend to do lots of kissing. Why? To make a statement to Pope Benedict XVI who just happened to be passing through for mass. The “kiss-in” was a peaceful protest against the Catholic Church’s stance against divorce, abortion, same-sex marriage, and condom use and a comment made by the Pope that homosexual acts are “intrinsically disordered.” That’s right, people, lock lips. Make love not hate. [L.A. Times] Keep reading »

Like this broiled ham and lima bean casserole, which has the pallid hue of a seasick sailor. Thanks, but we’ll pass. After the jump, three more delightfully unpleasant vintage recipe images.

An STD App? For Real?

So, when I first saw this story, I thought it was science fiction. But apparently it’s real, or at least may be real in the near future. A group of doctors and technology experts in the U.K. are working on developing an app to let people test themselves for STDs. Testing chips would be sold in drug stores, vending machines, and supermarkets. You place a drop of urine or saliva on the chip—like a less messy pregnancy test—then you plug it into your computer or phone and, within a few minutes, get a diagnosis. Hopefully of the negative variety.
