Kids rub teachers, genitals, the wrong way
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: LucrezaBorgia
"Her practical experience sessions were at a public daycare center in Tokyo. She was shocked by what happened to her. A young boy, no more than 4, suddenly walked up behind her. Yelling, "titties, titties," the boy jumped up and squeezed the young university student's breasts, leaving her in a state of shock. So terrified was the girl to have been sexually abused by a pre-schooler that she immediately began crying."

AOL patents Instant Messages, years later
MSNBC | Submitted by: pyromance
AOL used subsidiary ICQ's base technology to patent Instant Messages, years after competitive products are already in place. This business venture is BRILLIANT! What's next? Ford patenting the automobile and then suing every other motor vehicle manufacturer into oblivian? "The patent covers anything resembling a network that allows multiple users to see when other users are present and then to communicate with them." Unix who and talk commands let you do this in the 1970's. What fucknuts, that AOL.

What will we do without the Big Lout?
Minneapolis Star Tribune | Submitted by: Bammer
Writes the submitter, who obviously does not approve of Ventura: Minnesota and the nation will soon miss the quote a minute guy who still believes in his heart that "...I will be the last probably in a long time of public officials who have no strings attached to him, that isn't going to owe any payback, didn't owe any payback and won't be manipulated and controlled by any type of special interest..."

Canadians just as racist as Americans
Globe and Mail | Submitted by: Gazebo-Man
"Employers in Canada's most diverse city often reject women wearing Muslim head scarves in favour of identical candidates who don't... In many circumstances, the woman wearing a head covering fared worse than her twin. At 12.5 per cent of the sites, the visibly Muslim woman was told that no job was available, while the woman without ascarf was told the opposite. About a quarter of the employers didn't give the visibly Muslim woman a chance to apply for the job but accepted an application from the other woman."

Harvard advertises for alien abductees
New York Times | Submitted by: Pilgrim
I want to believe. I just can't. "When Susan Clancy, a psychologist at Harvard University, wanted to study people with memories of events that had never happened, she cast her net wide. So wide it reached galaxies far, far away. Have you ever been "contacted or abducted by space aliens?" the newspaper ads she ran read. Researchers at Harvard, the ads said, were seeking subjects to participate in a memory study."

Wired | Submitted by: Chilly
