High School Girls In MA Want To Get Pregnant

Most sexually active teen girls probably live in fear of the day they miss their period, but a group of high schoolers in Massachusetts all decided to get pregnant and raise their babies together — 17 of them succeed, and one was even knocked up by a 24-year-old homeless man, according to Gloucester High School’s principal, Joseph Sullivan. Normally there are about four pregnancies at this school of 1,200, which is located in a largely Catholic community. When girls came multiple times to the school clinic for pregnancy tests and seemed more upset if they weren’t pregnant than if they were, the school started asking questions. A girl in the class above the pregnancy pactmakers said she thinks they wanted to have babies because of the unconditional love they believed would come with having a child. “I try to explain it’s hard to feel loved when an infant is screaming to be fed at 3 a.m.,” she said. We smell a Lifetime movie coming out of this. [Time] Keep reading »

Barbara Walters Audiobook Is G-Rated

When Barbara Walter’s book Audition came out last month, all anyone could talk about was her relationships with Alan Greenspan and Massachusetts Senator Edward Brooke. The audio book, abridged down to six hours and read by Barbara herself, tells the story of Barbara’s career and married life, but it skips over her relationships with men outside of her three marriages. Maybe Barbara and her people decided that the people who listen to audio books might not be able to handle hearing about such scandals while driving to work on I-90. [Time] Keep reading »

But anyway, the most annoying aspect of this clothing phenomenon is that it’s given people the false impression that it’s okay to wear their stupidity, sexist attitudes, and sexual habits on their chests. After the jump, five t-shirts that are total dealbreakers.

Sex May Cause Weight Gain

All those studies that say sex burns calories thereby making you lose weight may be hooey. A study published this month in Medical Hypotheses suggests that blood levels of the hormone prolactin, which stimulates milk production and fatherly love, rise during sex, especially when there’s an orgasm. In several species, increased levels of prolactin have been linked to weight gain, so if things have been going well in the bedroom lately, it’s quite alright if you’ve been on a couple pounds. That’s called “happy weight.” [NewScientist.com] Keep reading »

Diamonds From Tequila

Diamonds can be made out of many materials, even your dead dog’s ashes, and now booze-hounds may be able to get bling made from their alcohol of choice: tequila. Now, technically the diamonds a team of researchers in Mexico have made from 80-proof tequila blanco are diamond films, used in machinery that operates at high temperatures or in harsh conditions, but maybe someday, someone will put a ring on my finger made from Patron.
