A Bald Head Makes A Great Canvas

Philip Levine started losing his hair about four years ago, and instead of covering up his baldness with a bad rug, he decided to embrace it by using his head as a canvas. And, unintentionally, he said he’s helped people suffering from cancer, alopecia, and other diseases that cause hair loss by inspiring them: “You can be empowered by painting your head … Even though you’re suffering, you can embrace your baldness.” The flowers that body artist Kat Sinclair paints on him in this video are tame compared to some of the other designs he’s worn, which you can see on his website, PhilSays.com. What would you think if your guy started sporting a painted scalp? [via NOTCOT] Keep reading »

Parents So Obsessed With Second Life Baby That They Neglect Real Baby

This is an extremely twisted story. Korean couple Kim Yoo-chul, 41, and Choi Mi-sun, 25, met in 2008 in an internet chat room and fell in love over their mutual love of Second Life. Three months ago, they had a baby together—at the same time, they also had a baby in Second Life. But because they were so obsessed with the game, they spent about 12 hours a night together at internet cafes playing it. They fed, clothed, and nurtured their virtual baby while leaving their real baby home alone without food. One night in September, they came home—and their real baby had died of malnutrition. The couple admitted to leaving her alone and feeding her rotten formula and are being charged with child abuse and neglect. Talk about an internet love gone wrong. [Daily Mail]

New Jersey Family Forced To Cover Up “Indecent” Snow Babe

Despite what we’ve learned from “Jersey Shore,” not everyone in the Garden State is psyched to see public nudity. This week, the Gonzalez family of Rahway, NJ, were forced to cover up their snowy tribute to the Venus de Milo. After toiling for hours in the snow, the family got a visit from the po-po after receiving anonymous complaints of a “naked snow woman.” The officer agreed it was a work of art but asked the family to put some clothes on the curvaceous ice lady. So they found a bikini top and sarong. The mother of the family, Maria, agreed that the statue was womanly but not worth censorship. “[The statue is] curvaceous, bodacious and booty-licious—but not obscene, I thought she looked more objectified and sexualized after you put the bikini on.” Seriously. It’s not like she had labia or even nipples. With all the craziness going on in the world, you’d think there would be bigger problems than a topless hunk of frozen ice which will melt in a week. And if NJ cops need to crack down on nudity, they should track down Snooki in the dance clubs! Just sayin’. [Newser] Keep reading »

There Really Is Someone Out There For Everyone

As runways teem with super skinny models and magazines overflow with size 0 waists and DD boobs, it’s easy to forget that normal—or even not so normal—people can find love, too. Take circus performers Jackie Molen, 24, and Josh Bladzik, 27. She’s a one-legged acrobat who is less that four feet tall and he’s a fire-eating, juggling unicyclist. And guess what? They are in love. Keep reading »

Those Aren’t Crystals …

Oh, what a glamorous chandelier! It looks so chic in this elegant passageway. But there’s somewhere even more uptight all these pieces were meant to be— each of those 14,000 tampons was made to decorate a vag. But luckily the Belem Cultural Center in Lisbon, Portugal, had the next best thing to a real vajayjay: a pale pink rotunda. So all those little OBs feel right at home, hanging by their string. While the tampon chandelier fills an impressive 16.4-foot area, one can only imagine how many ladies it could cover! Stubborn Aunt Flo has surely met her match in this masterpiece by artist Joana Vasconcelos. Entitled “The Bride,” it will stay up in the “Netless” exhibition through the spring. Here’s hoping nothing sets off the sprinkler alarm until then … [Oddity Central] Keep reading »

Porn For Bibles

In a move upsetting mothers, pastors, rabbis, and priests (this could be the start of a really good joke), Atheist Agenda, a campus club at the University of Texas at San Antonio, is offering pornography in exchange for Bibles, or any other sacred religious text. I remember when I was in college, “Preacher Joe” used to stand on the library steps, shouting and sputtering, and telling us why we were all going to hell, and I think this particular stunt would have given him a heart attack on the spot. This stuff, “Bronze Aged tribal nonsense, these things written by people in tents ages ago” is smut, the Atheist Agenda folks say, which is why they’ve started the “smut for smut” program. Any student can find their meeting room, with Holy Book in hand, and trade it in for porn, which they’ve helpfully coded in levels 0 to 5 of hardcore-ness. I really wonder what their mothers think … [Boing Boing] Keep reading »

No S**t! A Cuss-Free Week In California

California politicians are getting really creative about ways to make nice. They’re banning swear words for a week. Assemblyman Anthony Portantino created a “Cuss Free” bill after he got inspired by a middle schooler’s movement to start a “No Cussing Club” at his school. California’s State House passed a bill today approving a “Cuss Free Week,” effective this Sunday. They’re not going to get all crazy with it, arresting people who drop the f-bomb on the street or anything, but they are planning to put penalty jars all over the Capitol for accidental cusses and donate the proceeds to charity. Based on the stats that say the average swearer cusses about 80 to 90 times a day, they may be able to raise enough spare change to make a dent in the state’s deficit. How f**king cool is that?

Blogger Tries To Go To The Gym For A Year—For Free

Columbia University law student Julia Neyman, 24, launched the blog “Buns of Steal” so she could write about her quest to score free gym passes at fitness centers all over New York City for an entire year. She uses a variety of tactics to weasel her way into gyms. She uses free passes that trainers give out in an effort to get more clients. She makes it seem like she’s actually interested in joining when, in fact, she has no intention of doing so. When push comes to shove, the 24-year-old is even willing to flirt. These methods have gotten her into everything from yoga and pole dancing classes to karate and kickboxing. While fast-thinking NYC gyms may be catching on—Neyman has recently been booted from both Equinox and David Barton gyms—she’s getting a lot of bang for her buck in the media world. The New York Daily News did a profile of her and she’s getting coverage on the local news. We’re pretty sure the gig is up now. For her. But hey, we might try this tactic.
