"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”"

"I am a kind of paranoiac in reverse. I suspect people of plotting to make me happy." - J. D. Salinger

Why the fashion industry can't seem to design for women with breasts - "Is fashion a cruel anti-female industry whose sole goal is to make women feel bad about themselves and force them to wear crippling, uncomfortable apparel? Or is it empowering, ­allowing women to wear clothes that appeal primarily to themselves as ­opposed to men?... Fashion haters will say that designers' disinterest-verging-on-­distaste for breasts proves that they are misogynistic pigs, interested only in designing for anorexic 19-year-olds. But there is another possible interpretation... One of the truly commendable things about fashion is how little interest it has in appealing to straight men, or making women look attractive to them.... [fashion] is basically a private-members' club that excludes men. "Fashion's just about appealing to gay men""

Sexual harrassment okay as it ensures humans breed, Russian judge rules - "According to a recent survey, 100 per cent of female professionals said they had been subjected to sexual harassment by their bosses, 32 per cent said they had had intercourse with them at least once and another seven per cent claimed to have been raped."
No wonder they're looking for foreign husbands.

Using religious language to fight global warming - "The green movement's appropriation of religious language and imagery has backfired. "Environmentalists have stolen fear, guilt and sin from religion, but they have left behind celebration, hope and redemption," he says. "They read science in the way that fundamentalists read religious texts: they cherry-pick the bits that support their argument and use them to scare people," he adds. "Then they offer no solutions other than letting greens take over the running of the world""

YouTube - Charlie Brooker - How To Report The News - "Next a walkey-talkey preamble from the author, pacing steadily towards the lens, punctuating every other sentence with a hand gesture and ignoring all the pricks milling around him like he's gliding through the fucking Matrix before coming to a halt and posing a question: 'What comes next?'"

Apartments in China for foreigners only - "A PROPERTY developer in China is inviting only 'Western-looking' foreigners to live in a new development, sparking comparisons with the controversial concession areas in the 1800s... The ban on Chinese tenants was necessary to maintain the 'purity' of the international community"

The Ten Best Ways for a Woman to Impress a Man
When you compare this with The Ten Best Ways for a Man to Impress a Woman, the misandry is obvious.

Quick! Figure Out How This Target Billboard "Objectifies" Women! - "The feminists are up in arms about a Times Square Target billboard... 'their ad had a woman's crotch centered on a bullseye'. She's making a snow angel, retards. For people who are supposedly about seeing women "as people first," these feminists sure are all about pussy!"

Natural Harvest - A Collection of Semen-Based Recipes by Fotie Photenhauer - "Semen is not only nutritious, but it also has a wonderful texture and amazing cooking properties. Like fine wine and cheeses, the taste of semen is complex and dynamic. Semen is inexpensive to produce and is commonly available in many, if not most, homes and restaurants"

5,000 friends on Facebook? Scientists prove 150 is the most we can cope with - "He compared the online 'traffic' of people with thousands and friends to those with hundreds. His findings show that there is no discernible difference between the two... Dunbar defined 'maintained' friends as those you care about and contact at least once a year. He has also found that women are better at maintaining friendships on Facebook. 'There is a big sex difference though ... girls are much better at maintaining relationships just by talking to each other. Boys need to do physical stuff together'"

Bring on the vampires!

The Director of Downfall Speaks Out on All Those Angry YouTube Hitlers - "As for the idea of such a serious scene being used for laughs, Hirschbiegel thinks it actually fits with the theme of the movie. "The point of the film was to kick these terrible people off the throne that made them demons, making them real and their actions into reality""

Man took photos to win foreskin argument, court told - "AN international pilot tried to settle a debate with his wife about circumcision by taking photos of naked boys at a popular Brisbane park on Australia Day"

Save the Guinea Worm Foundation: defending the world's most endangered species. - "The rare Guinea Worm faces extinction. Yet despite growing public support for environmentalism and preservation of endangered species, few people will speak out on the Guinea Worm's behalf. In fact, the United Nations and several prominent U.S. agencies are leading a quiet campaign to eradicate this dwindling species forever from the planet. Is the Guinea Worm the world's most endangered species?"

France makes incest a crime - "France finally made incest a crime in its own right yesterday – reinstating it into the country's penal code more than 200 years after French revolutionaries threw it out as a "religious taboo""

No Sex Please! We're Just Kids! - "Perhaps it's not that surprising that a mother in Menifee, California, asked the Menifee Union School District to ban all copies of the 10th edition of Merriam-Webster's Collegiate Dictionary after her child stumbled across the term "oral sex." What is surprising, indeed horrifying, is that district officials immediately complied with her request, and pulled all dictionaries off classroom shelves throughout the Southern California school district, which serves 9,000 kids, kindergarten through eighth grade. District officials said on Friday that they are forming a committee to consider a permanent classroom ban of the Merriam Webster's Collegiate Dictionary"

Men, Women, and Their Differing Sleep Needs - "67 percent of women experience frequent sleep problems, though three-quarters of all sleep research has focused on men... women’s sleep troubles begin once they hit puberty... women are most likely to be woken up by sleeping babies and dripping taps, whereas car alarms and howling winds are what rouse men most readily... it’s interesting that these results seem to correspond to traditional gender roles... Our social conditioning—or biological predisposition, depending on whom you ask—follows us to bed"

The Sleep Diaries: Do Men and Women Dream Differently? - "A 1994 study by pioneering psychologist Robert Van de Castle found that dreams may be sex-differentiated in children as young as age three. Children appear to dream about aggression with equal frequency until age twelve, but then, as kids start to mature sexually, girls’ dreams begin to involve less aggression and focus increasingly on emotions, talking, and physical appearance... 1) women have nightmares more often than men do, and 2) men dream about sex more often and more intensely than women do... Women’s bad dreams... involved more misfortune, negative self-perceptions, and failures than men’s unpleasant dreams... while men’s dreams are more aggression-driven than women’s, the object of aggression in both sexes’ dreams is typically male"

Facebook Friends Checker for Greasemonkey - "Regularly checks your Facebook friends to check whether anyone has removed you from their friends"

The purpose of physics graduate classes - "In a humanities class, it’s standard to expect students to do the assigned reading. The class then proceeds with the assumption that students have done the reading. The instructor does not hold your hand and lead you through every line of the reading. It is also understood that if you don’t do the readings, it pointless to go to class because the class is going to assume you’ve at least grappled with them, and start off on that higher level. The opposite happens in science classes... The learning style encouraged by such teaching seems to be passive rather than active, compared to humanities classes... why is this still going on in graduate classes?... The objective of science education as I see it is not to tell people the right answers. The objective is understanding"

What Men Think Of One-Night Stands - "The one-night stand is a great American tradition in which two people have awkward sex that both will regret immediately. Most people have had one or two one-night stands, and they’re certainly a unique experience—almost a rite of passage. Like all rites of passages, one-night stands are shameful, awkward, and huge causes for celebration... I once had a friend claim that he gave a woman an orgasm so powerful that the hotel room TV turned on"

Better pay, higher productivity - "Like SM Goh, I was also amazed at the many roles a waiter may perform in many developed countries. In Australia, where I live, a waiter takes orders, makes drinks, handles the cash register and cleans up after a restaurant has closed for the evening... waiters are sufficiently compensated for the various roles that they perform. In Australia, for example, a waiter working part-time in a restaurant can be paid between $15 and $20 an hour. Though workers have to fulfil many roles, they raise their productivity when they are adequately compensated"

Leaf-like sea slug feeds on light - "the sea slug Elysia chlorotica can photosynthesize, using energy from light to convert carbon dioxide into sugars... They acquire the ability to photosynthesize by eating algae and incorporating the plants' tiny chlorophyll-containing structures, called chloroplasts, into their own cells"

Millions Of Extra Sites To Be Censorsed As Australian Gov. Bans Small Breasts, Female Ejaculation - "Any pretense from the Australian Government that its proposed internet filter will not extend to millions of sites has died... The ban (RC) on small breasted women in adult publications has been made by the Australian Classification Board allegedly on the grounds that such images could be construed as child pornography, even where those publications comply with American law and keep certification that performers are over 18. Female ejaculation has been banned on the incredible grounds that 'the depictions are a form of urination'... Under Australian law, any site linking to a site that has been refused classification is also refused classification... that takes us to tens of millions of adult sites."
