Here is an interesting bit of news:

"The U.S. Supreme Court rejected on Tuesday a constitutional challenge to an Alabama law that makes it a crime to sell sex toys... First-time violators can face a fine of up to $10,000 and as much as one year in jail."

Interestingly enough "It exempted sales of sexual devices "for a bona fide medical, scientific, educational, legislative or judicial purpose."

What the hell is a "legislative, judical or law enforcement" sex toy???

Now where did that stash go?

If you are not so worried about your short-term memory but want to preserve what you have left of the long-term, this article from the BBC may be of interest to you:

"The active ingredient in marijuana may stall decline from Alzheimer's disease, research suggests." the article goes on... "Scientists showed a synthetic version of the compound may reduce inflammation associated with Alzheimer's and thus help to prevent mental decline."

Now where did that stash go?

Donating your body for fuel

Here is an interesting article that discusses the conversion of carbon-based life forms [basically all living things] into fuel.

"If a 175-pound man fell into one end , he would come out the other end as 38 pounds of oil, 7 pounds of gas, and 7 pounds of minerals, as well as 123 pounds of sterilized water."

Let the cloning begin.

Masterbating in the 1st degree

From USA Today: "Jurors and others in Judge Donald Thompson's courtroom kept hearing a strange whooshing noise, like a bicycle pump or maybe a blood pressure cuff.... The explanation, investigators say, is even stranger than some imagined: The judge had a habit of masturbating with a penis pump under his robe during trials."

"No child left behind" or "How I learned to hate the First Amendment."

While this news is a day or two old, it is none the less, pretty frightening to say the least:

From the AP: "The way many high school students see it, government censorship of newspapers may not be a bad thing..."

Who needs the 1st Amendment when you have a remote control, reality programs and herpes commercials.

"No child left behind" or "How I learned to hate the First Amendment."
