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.

Dude Holds His Ex’s Facebook Page Hostage

Jessica Zamora-Anderson and Paul Franco of Queens, New York, hardly had the ideal relationship. They met on Facebook in 2008 and were reasonably happy, until a year later when a screaming match ended with Paul chucking a cell phone at his girlfriend’s head. Soon after, Paul let Jessica know that he’d taken video footage of them doing the deed and he wasn’t afraid to make it public—so when he demanded $185 to get his towed car released from an impound lot, she paid up. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, when Jessica tried to log into her Facebook page and her password was denied. She quickly realized that Paul had hijacked her account, changed her sexual preference to “gay,” and was writing her friends and family members and doing updates, posing as her. She contacted him, and he said he’d give her the account back—if she paid him $390. Which seems like a pretty arbitrary number? We’re pretty amused that instead of paying up, Jessica went to the police. Paul is now facing charges of coercion and harassment. Just another reminder to NEVER share your password with anyone. Oh, and to not date psycho douchebags. [NY Post] Keep reading »

Swiss Prostitutes Can Save Your Life

If you are so old that having sex could stop your heart, you probably shouldn’t be doing it. Unfortunately, that isn’t stopping old geezers from hitting up brothels in Lugano, Switzerland, and … dying after sexytime. Recently, after poppin’ some pills to help him get it up and getting wild, an old guy’s heart stopped. Sounds crazy, but so many dudes are dying or coming close to it during or after hardcore sex with prostitutes that brothel owners in this picturesque Swiss town are going to stock their joints with defibrillators. Apparently, administering electric shock is becoming, “increasingly quick and easy for the lay person to use.” Maybe prostitutes aren’t the only ones who should have to pass a health exam before getting down and dirty?

A Doll Whose, Uh, Privates You Can Shave

This doll is all sorts of wrong. Because hair removal is such a big topic on the minds of little kids, you can shave this dolly’s armpits and pubes. Also, apparently the doll has issues with calf hair? Weird. [BuzzFeed] Keep reading »

Ice Dancing Is Sort Of Incestuous

Tonight, when you turn on the Olympics and watch the ice dancing competition, you’ll see couples look lustily at one another as they dance the tango. Some of these pairs, however, are siblings. Of the 23 ice-dancing teams competing in the Olympics, four are brother-sister duos. Ick.
