The holidays are fast-approaching, and that means it’s time for you to get out of town.

You won’t be able to carry this weekender to the dining table, but looking at it will remind you that you do get to go back to your place eventually.
Looking for sex online? It’ll cost you. Last week the domain Sex.com was purchased for $13 million dollars — and is now the most expensive web address on the internet. The domain’s previous owner, Escom, was forced to sell after the company declared bankruptcy. The domain was first registered in 1994, by Gary Kremen, the founder of Match.com. A year later, convicted fraudster Stephen Cohen wrestled away Sex.com by claiming Kremen sold him the property. In 2004, Kremen took Cohen to court and won back the domain, which he then sold to Escom. Most recently, the domain was purchased by Clover Holdings, LLC. But apparently the price of sex has gone down in recent years: Escom purchased Sex.com for $14 million just four years ago. [CNET] Keep reading »

Perhaps the hiccups made her do it: We’ll never know. In 2007, Jennifer Mee made headlines when she suffered from uncontrollable hiccups. Over the weekend, Mee was arrested and charged with first degree murder. Mee has been charged in the shooting death of 22-year-old Shannon Griffin. According to police, Mee lured Griffin to a seedy part of St. Petersburg, FL (of course, Florida), where Lamont Newton and Laron Raiford robbed and killed him. She’s currently being held without bail in Pinellas County Jail.
Three years ago, Mee, now 19, suffered from an extended bout of hiccups — sometimes hiccuping more than 50 times in an minute. Her hiccups were cured after several weeks and in the media frenzy over her strange disorder she reconnected with her biological father. [MSNBC] Keep reading »
