-- Beer goggles do not scientifically exist. Unless you bought a pair at Walmart or made your own. A new study by the U.K.'s Durham University questions the long-held belief that alcohol consumption makes a person drop their standards as to whom they'd drop their drawers for. Got a beer goggle horror story?
-- Maybe this will hush the irrational rage over bacon. One in every 17 people followed in the study died. However, those eating more than 160g of processed meat a day - roughly two sausages and a slice of bacon - were 44% more likely to die over a typical follow-up time of 12.7 years than those eating about 20g.
In total, nearly 10,000 people died from cancer and 5,500 from heart problems.
Can I talk to someone, ANYONE who isn't under the spellof bacon!?
-- Some thoughts, suggestions for sex music. There are albums by the likes of Frank Ocean and Jessie Ware that would also seem to fit the bill, but again: too obvious. This is also true of the recent My Bloody Valentine album, and that is a damn shame because it's simultaneously loud and pretty, painful and pleasurable and thus a terrific soundtrack for an&l.
-- This doesn't sound real,as tragic as it is...A woman was mauled to death by a lion as she made love to her boyfriend in the Zimbabwe bush, it was reported today.
Sharai Mawera died yesterday after the beast pounced as she enjoyed a romantic al fresco moment with her unnamed partner.
The My Zimbabwe news website reported that the predator attacked the couple at a secluded spot in the bush near the northern town of Kariba.
Ms Mawera's boyfriend, who has not been identified, is believed to have jumped up and fled in the nude when the lion lunged forward.
A source told the newspaper the young woman died at the scene.
He said: "Unfortunately the woman was mauled to death by the lion, but her boyfriend managed to escape naked."
-- Sesame Street asked for 1 billion Youtube views, and it got them, and released a special video. My fave Sesame Street clip with The Count. 'Do you know why they call me the mail man? Because I have your mail.' Fave Sesame Street character?
-- I'll take 'not great, but entertaining.' Because yes, fun escapism my just my kind! As opposed to the mindless absurdity of reality TV. In creating additional mythology, director Sam Raimi has fashioned a viable escapist fantasy in its own right. His blend of computer-generated images and gorgeously designed sets enhances the story's theatrical quality. This is the rare case where 3-D doesn't feel superfluous, but integral to the plot. How do YOU escape?
-- And now Chelsea Handler has jumped into the Taylor/Tina/Aimee fracas. Taylor, back off. You. Can't Win. "My theory about Taylor Swift is that she's a virgin, that everyone breaks up with her because they date her for two weeks and she's like, 'I'm not gonna do it.' And they're like, 'Oh, well, forget it. Then I don't want to date you,'" Handler joked. "Every guy thinks they're going to devirginize her, and they're not. She's never going to get devirginized, ever, ever, ever, ever."
