I just assumed that the whole point of becoming an astronaut and taking the long ride out to the final frontier was for the glory of experiencing zero-gravity sex, even if those pesky space suits do seem a little restrictive. But apparently space sex is against the rules of astro-conduct. Space Shuttle commander Alan Poindexter, who just returned with his six-person, coed crew from a two week mission to the International Space Station, was offended by the very thought of getting busy in the great beyond. When asked what would happen if his crew did it in space, he said, “We are a group of professionals … we treat each other with respect and we have a great working relationship. Personal relationships are not an issue. We don’t have them and we won’t.” Somebody’s a party pooper. I’m officially crossing astronaut off the list of things I want to be when I grow up.

Today in randomness on Etsy.com: check out this human thumb-shaped USB drive. The gadget is made from flesh-tinted urethane and based on a rubber cast of the creator’s own thumb. Um, ew? Anyone else think a human thumb coming out of your laptop is a bit too Salvador Dali-ish for real life? [Etsy.com] Keep reading »

It’s been a year since Michael Jackson‘s death and not only have the rumors not slowed, they’ve gotten even more bizarre. Sure, we miss the King of Pop too, but that doesn’t mean that we think he’s still alive or had a hand in the destruction of Iran! Just in case you missed these, we’ve rounded up the eight weirdest rumors about Michael Jackson that have circulated since his death. Keep reading »
It’s never too early for baby’s first debt reduction program, right? This rubbery credit card teether by Heelarious, the folks who sell high-heels for babies, carries the name “Ima Spender.” Thankfully anyone who drools on this toy is too young to read. Seems like a waste of $10, though: everybody knows babies like to chew on your car keys and then drop them in the toilet. [Heelarious.com via Feministing] Keep reading »
Anyone need a cheap baby? You may be able to pick one up for a bargain at Walmart. Parents of the year, Samantha Tomasini, 20, and Patrick Fousek, 38, were arrested today for trying to SELL their six-month-old baby in the parking lot of a Walmart in California. Just take that in for a second. Would you be surprised to find out that they needed the $25 to buy meth? Nope. But you’d think at least that even the druggiest of drug addicts would try to get more than $25 for a baby. Kids, let these two be your reasons for never, ever doing drugs. Again, as I said earlier about women who have a thing for murderers, PAFU. [Daily Mail]

My teachers always said that stoners don’t amount to anything, but a few select schools across the country are handing out weed diplomas! At Med Grow Marijuana School, outside Detroit, students take a six-week course on growing the best medical marijuana. Apparently, nearly one fifth of the students are ex-auto workers. There are also Med Grow branches in Colorado and New Jersey, and Oaksterdam University has a three-year pot school in Oakland, Los Angeles, and Michigan. Despite increased acceptance of medical marijuana, local police told students that if they’re caught toking, “We’re going to drop you like a bad habit.” Apparently, their police force learned how to talk from “The Dukes of Hazzard.” Living in a city with more medical marijuana clinics than Starbucks, I’ve already accepted that this is the future, but whose parents let them get a degree in weed?
