"Malaysia Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad and the Sultan of Johor are seen in a blue Proton Saga... "When asked whether there is any tension with the sultan, Dr Mahathir said: “No, I don’t see anything because I went to see him and he drove me to the airport. I don’t want to comment on the sultans because if I say anything that is not good then it’s not nice because he is the sultan”"

"Money can't buy friends, but it can get you a better class of enemy." - Spike Milligan

Saturday Profile - A Romance Writer Jabs at Singapore’s Patriarchs - "She was reading up on science, she said — “I must be the only woman in Singapore who can discuss quantum physics a little bit convincingly”... Really, Ms. Lim said in the interview, she likes men. But she seems to enjoy them in limited doses, as amusing playthings who must not be allowed to get out of line... I saw a row of four old men sitting in front. “And later one of them came up to me and said, ‘You know, I wasn’t even following your lecture. I was only looking at your cheongsam legs.’” Many Western women might find that offensive, but Ms. Lim just laughed at the memory. “Don’t you think that was cute?” she said. “I thought that was cute.”"

Singapore is better than Chicago - "Just like how Singapore's Changi airport is superior to O'Hare airport, Chicago is a city that is past its prime"

Three friends accused of killing a man after he was 'mistakenly identified as a paedophile' - This is why sex offender registries are bad ideas, and states give boy killers new identities

Earth Science Picture of the Day: Sun Pillar and Sundog - "Could sightings of such sundog pillars possibly be responsible for the "Pillars of Fire" appearing in many historical texts?"

Do animals masturbate? - "Our fellow apes are among the most ardent and industrious masturbators: Female orangutans have been observed to fashion primitive dildos from sticks or pieces of liana, while males stimulate themselves with pieces of fruit, leaves, or other objects. Although it's sometimes said that only mammals masturbate, we have clear examples of autoeroticism among birds, which rub their cloacae on whatever's handy. Turtles have also been observed in the act."

The pro-life case for masturbation. - "Does God want you to masturbate?... In a paper presented to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, Dr. David Greening, an Australian infertility expert, reports that 81 percent of the men in his study significantly improved their sperm quality, as measured by DNA fragmentation, through a simple one-week program."

The 50 best foods in the world and where to eat them

Mac OS X Has More Problems than Vista - "We now have proof from an independent third party, Google. That's right, if you search the terms "problems with windows" versus "problems with mac os x", Windows wins with only 113 million pages of problems to Mac OS X 126 million. That gives Windows about a 10% advantage over Macs."
Consider than there're 10x as many Windows users than Mac users, and the results are truly enlightening. Consider also that "Windows" can refer to anything from Windows 1.0 onwards

Project ‘Gaydar’: An MIT experiment raises new questions about online privacy - The Boston Globe - "Using data from the social network Facebook, they made a striking discovery: just by looking at a person’s online friends, they could predict whether the person was gay... The researchers found that certain traits, such as knowing what groups people belonged to or their favorite music, were quite predictive of political affiliation. But they also found that they did better than a random guess when only using friendship connections. The best results came from combining the two approaches."

Now, a boob job to zap all the fat - "The breast enlargement operation takes excess fat from the thighs and stomach and moves it to the bust. The pioneering technique has been tested in Britain and the US and is expected to be offered to British women by early next year."

Why modern feminism is illogical, unnecessary, and evil | Psychology Today - "Feminism is the radical notion that women are men... the fact that women make less money than men cannot by itself be evidence that women are worse off than men, any more than the fact that men own fewer pairs of shoes than women cannot be evidence that men are worse off than women... modern feminism is evil because it ultimately makes women (and men) unhappy... Men’s happiness has not declined in the last 35 years, because there has not been masculinism; nobody has insisted on the radical notion that men are women, although, as Christina Hoff Sommers documents, this may be happening in our current war against boys"
Fun blurb from a book cited: "The founder of the Women's Quarterly, which in four years has attracted lots of attention, pro and con, argues that today's young women are unhappy because they have been taught to put independence first and blame men for everything."
This is a bad article, but the feminist response is even worse, as it completely misses the point and goes on the standard feminist rampage.
