Coming Soon: Your Own Personal Sex Machines

(Editor’s note: Links in this story that are not safe for work are marked NSFW.)

UNIVERSAL CITY, California — It’s the ultimate revenge of the nerds as product developers use their big brains to create sex machines that kick pleasure into overdrive. In fact, the very nature of the sex “toy” is changing as a new generation of sex-positive engineers infiltrates the industry.

From the smooth, silent glide of the Monkey Rocker Tango to Le Chair’s ability to put two people into a dozen compromising positions, the new products and prototypes unveiled at this week’s Adult Novelty Expo straddle the line between toy (a passive, frivolous object) and machine (a substantial apparatus that inspires commitment and even emotional attachment).

Photo of A Detainee Held By The United States With Face Wired, Lips Sewn, Red Eyes

Photo leaked from a US military computer network of a detainee held by the United States with face wired, lips sewn, red eyes and torso sacked.

Photo of a detainee held by the United States, with his face wired, lips sewn, red eyes and torso sacked. According to digital camera metadata the image was taken on Feb 9, 2003 03:49:25. The 6 Aug 2004 is also mentioned in relation to this photo. The facial wiring is clearly non-medical. The location of the detainee is unknown, possibly the US Bagram Theater Internment Facility in Afghanistan. Although there is a resemblance to the US Taliban supporter John Walker Lindh, the connection is superficial. The negative image to the right was created by Wikileaks to draw attention to certain regions of the photo on the left. Wikileaks staff have verified that the photograph came from a US military computer network.

Scientists Say Indigo Children Do Exist – A New Race With Extrasensory Abilities

“For the past 10 years children have been born who don’t resemble ordinary boys and girls,” Mikhaylovskaya said. “Their uniqueness is apparent when they are only several months old. Doctors say they are astounded by the children’s very ‘adult’ eyes. While ordinary babies aren’t able to focus their vision, Indigo children stare intensely. The older they get the odder they behave compared to their peers.”

Parents are confused and turning to medical professionals for advice about how to raise their Indigo children. They’re having a difficult time communicating with their kids. Their children don’t want to study or play games like their friends. They don’t listen to authority and they’re always off on their own.

This seems like a familiar story. There have always been problem children. In the past psychologists diagnosed them with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Hyperactivity and prescribe sedatives. However, children who suffer from hyperactivity aren’t able to concentrate for long periods of time on one activity.… Read the rest

Everyone Is Tired, And No One Knows Why

Everyone, and I do mean everyone I come across at the present time, from friends and associates, through to work colleagues and even people who’s conversations I hear in the street all seem to be saying the same thing, that they are tired and run down, and have no idea what they’ve done to cause it.

So, firstly, is anyone else experiencing this in other parts of the world, and if so what do you think its down to? Atmospheric effects, weather conditions, missing time and being out of sync (as alluded to in the thread I linked) some kind of virus, global conciousness or something even more sinister?

Counting Down On America’s Self Destruct Sequence

There is a choice to be made: Either we regulate the Banks, or leave it to the vagaries of the free markets to punish those who trade with, or place their assets in the wrong institutions. But for God’s sake, do not give us the worst of both worlds — do not allow banks the freedom to make horrific but preventable mistakes (i.e., only lending money to those who can pay it back), but then expect the taxpayers to foot the trillion dollar bill.

That’s not capitalism, its not socialism, its not regulation, and its sure as hell isn’t what free markets are. Our language is insufficient to describe this hodge-podge system, other than to call it a random patchwork of quasi-capitalism, quadrennial-socialism, and politics as usual. Ideological idiocy is the only phrase I can muster that has any resonance with the daily insanity.

We have entered into a fit of Orwellian madness: The American Capitalists, long the globe’s leading advocates for free markets, have become near Socialists.… Read the rest

Lean And Mean: The Icare Motorcycle Concept Will Take The Streets By Storm

If its France-based designers are to be believed then the Icare motorcycle concept is supposed to be a cross between something from Tron and “a kind of Porsche or Aston Martin for the two-wheeled world.” I guess anyone who thought this was just another bike concept can really stuff it and marvel at the wonder that is this Enzyme Design exclusive.

Inspired by light cycles from TRON and housing a six-cylinder 1.8 liter Honda engine revving up more heat than what you’d find in some compact cars, this one sure is a hottie with the muscle to prove it.

Unrepentant On Facebook? Expect Jail Time

Prosecutors pounced when this party photo of Joshua Lipton in a “Jail Bird” costume appeared on Facebook.

PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island (AP) — Two weeks after Joshua Lipton was charged in a drunken driving crash that seriously injured a woman, the 20-year-old college junior attended a Halloween party dressed as a prisoner. Pictures from the party showed him in a black-and-white striped shirt and an orange jumpsuit labeled “Jail Bird.”

In the age of the Internet, it might not be hard to guess what happened to those pictures: Someone posted them on the social networking site Facebook. And that offered remarkable evidence for Jay Sullivan, the prosecutor handling Lipton’s drunken-driving case.
