Doomsday asteroids: Don't Ask, Don't Tell
Independent | Submitted by: Fecolithographer
The study suggests that you won't have time to kiss your ass goodbye because you won't know the time has come. But shouldn't the end of civilization as we know it be an event cherished by all, not just by a few astronomers shitting their pants as they make a futile dive for cover under their telescopes?

Eat too much MSG, go blind
Sydney Morning Herald | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
We keep getting masturbation and MSG confused: "Scientists found that eating large amounts of monosodium glutamate (MSG), used to flavour oriental and processed foods, can injure the retina and lead to vision loss. Rats fed diets high in MSG in Japan developed thinner retinas and began to go blind... the Japanese study at Hirosaki University was the first to show that eye damage can be caused by eating food containing MSG."

Pee Wee's Wee Wee Porno
The Smoking Gun | Submitted by: Marco Polo
Pee Wee Herman claims in his latest filing for dismissal that possesion of child pornography claims (among other things) that if you don't get caught with it for more than a year, it is legal. Also a very strange claim that pre-1989 material is legal. Note that it is common for attorneys to make multiple contradictory defenses and is standard and even acceptable practice. It is also common for prosecutors to claim material to be younger than it actually is, so what is characterized as "child pornography" may just be young looking models. Such was the case with the infamous Calvin Klein advertisements, poses of eighteen year old models which the religious right assailed as being child pornography. It will be interesting to see how this plays out.

Miami Herald | Submitted by: Hail OTIS!
News Flash: Black Haitian-American politician and KKK are in agreement: Blacks are inherently inferior, can't learn to swim.
