Sexting is, like, so not cool. Only one percent of kids age 10 to 17 have shared naked pics of themselves, according to new data released today in the journal Pediatrics. Researchers on the APA study disputed a commonly cited piece of data which said that one in five — or 20 percent — of kids ages 14 to 24 had sexted. But that definition of “sext” had included sexy text messages without photos, as well as photos “no more revealing than what someone might see at a beach,” according to the AP.  This new study asked teens — and only teens — to be more explicit about the images that they send and receive.  Clearly the past inclusion of twentysomethings in the survey pool skewed the results. In fact, the younger kids are, the less likely they are to sext.

Wait, you mean America was whipped up into a frenzy over a teen sex panic that turned out to be nothing? You don’t say! Keep reading »

Couple Busted For Having Sex On Water Slide

Security personnel at a amusement park in Opoczno, Poland, ejected two tourists earlier this week after they were caught joining the “water slide-high club” at the top of one of the attractions.

Facility cameras captured the incident, allowing park attendants to meet the naughty couple with buckets of cold water at the bottom of the slide.

“The women was filmed straddling her boyfriend and starting to make love before the pair shot down the bright blue tunnel, in what must have been a breach of the water park rules,” Metro reports. Read more…

World’s Largest Insect Chows Down A Carrot

Discovered in New Zealand, the seven-inch long Weta Bug is the world’s largest insect. I know … ewww. But what’s extraordinary about this big, gross, bug is her appetite for carrots. “She enjoyed the carrot so much she seemed to ignore the fact she was resting on our hands and carried on munching away. She would have finished the carrot very quickly, but this is an extremely endangered species and we didn’t want to risk indigestion,” said the man who discovered and fed her. Hey, a girl has to eat. This sounds like what happens to me when I get in front of a chocolate bar. [The Sun UK]

I love a good survival story. This exceptional pig, hailing from China, was born without his hind legs. Instead of curling up in his trough and waiting to become bacon, he adapted to his disability, learning to walk on his front legs by catapulting his 60+ lb. body into a handstand. Those who know him call him “strong pig.” Maybe next he’ll learn to fly. [Huffington Post]

Surprise, surprise: basically all of the photos we see in the media today are Photoshopped in some way. Lighting is tweaked; blemishes, pores, and cellulite vanish; and wrinkles smooth into oblivion. But now two computer image specialists at Dartmouth College have developed a software program that can tell, say, feminist bloggers just how much an image has been altered. Keep reading »
