Only the Beeb:
"Historic sex toys sold for £3,600 at Essex auction."
Uhhhy...they're 10 and 11 inches long, respectively.
BTW: "Godemiche" is, essentially, German for dildo.
Implants are one mod, but then there is bifurcation:
Are you sure you want to look?
Are you really sure that you want to look?
No, are you really really sure that you want to look?

Honestly, I think the hot dog is a symbol of Darwinism at it's finest. If the parents are too stupid to cut the dog down the middle so it won't choke the child then they shouldn't have been breeding in the first place...
It was on the Safety Nazi's radar last month, I just ignored it as I was busy playing with somebody else's hot dog that day, but here's what you missed:
Make hot dogs choke-proof, pediatricians say
So the logical conclusion is that children today will starve while having no fun at all.

The Captain in question is Holly Graf, dismissed two months ago as commander of the USS Cowpens, a Ticonderoga-class guided missile cruiser. The gang at MilitaryCorruption.com led the pack in documenting Graf's reign of terror as skipper of the Cowpens and before that, the USS Winston S. Churchill, a guided missile destroyer.
Captain Graf's conduct makes Bligh look like a boy scout. As the Navy Inspector General documented, Graf (at various times) spat in the face of a crewmember; choked a junior officer under her command, hurled ceramic coffee mugs at subordinates and heaped withering verbal abuse at scores of sailors, petty officers and commissioned officers who crossed her path. Officially, Graf was fired for "cruelty and maltreatment" of her crew and conduct unbecoming an officer. Admittedly, our knowledge of Navy dismissals is limited, but we can't recall the last skipper who was relieved for "cruelty and maltreatment," giving Graf a very dubious distinction, indeed. MOAR from "Time" and hat tip to "In From the Cold."
Genital assault on police officer and Time-Warner gaffs with Playboy on children's channels. Got to love the name of the Scottish guy in the story though.
The brilliance of Viktor and Rolf, borrowing from fetish yet again, for Lady Gaga. The video is pretty cool.
Our Docs turn 50 on the 1st of April. Happy Birthday Dr. Martens. The only catch with the iconic footwear is that some of the manufacturing is now done offshore and the material quality, thus repairability, is not the same as it used to be.
The Ex partner can be a real troublemaker sometimes. Nice to know that celebs get it too, only for way bigger bucks. Lady Gaga's is after her for just $35million.

That last post was sick. SICK!
Well, I'm not sure ancient Israel technically counts as Western Civ-Eastern Med Civ, maybe? That would make ancient Greece Aegean Civ....Discuss.
PS: I gather from this picture, Sampson was into bondage. Come to think of it, how much BDSM imagery was there in those children's bibles.....
I can hear the obit now: "Her greatest dream in life was to make sure that she couldn't walk, could not fit through the door of the house, could not possibly find jeans that fit, to have continual open sores on her body from the weight and rolls of fat...she achieved that and more in her short life..."
Woman aspires to weigh 1,000 pounds
Donna Simpson is setting a two-year goal to reach her ideal weight. So of course, she is on a diet — of cakes, doughnuts and loads of fast food. But don't worry, she isn't cheating her food plan. The 42-year-old New Jersey mother's goal is to go from 600 pounds to a whopping 1,000.
Simpson, in an interview with the Daily Mail, says she wants to be the world's fattest woman. She already holds the Guinness World Record as the World's Fattest Mother — and needed 30 people to assist in the delivery of her daughter.
She will try to eat 12,000 calories a day to make her dream come true.
From the Daily Mail:
"'I'd love to be 1,000lb,' she said. 'It might be hard though. Running after my daughter keeps my weight down.'"
But Simpson admits that she needs a motor scooter to get around and can only walk 20 feet before becoming too fatigued to continue. While adding an extra 400 pounds is a feat in itself, it is does not come cheap. But do not fret, budding weight-gainers — you can follow Simpson's lead and set up a website to collect money from people who want to watch you eat. Yes, this is how she can afford the $750 grocery bill.

The Hurt Locker beats Avatar.
I like how a movie with little financial backing and virtually no distribution that is pro-military and based on reality beat the crap out of a massive overblown expensive anti-military movie that purports to be about an insurgency of blue people against a military-industrial corporate behemoth.......

Gyrocopter pilot 'cleaved hunt supporter's head from top to bottom'
A gyrocopter pilot drove towards a hunt supporter who was trying to stop him from taking off, cleaving his head ''from top to bottom'', a court heard.
Bryan Griffiths, 55, is charged with the manslaughter by gross negligence of Warwickshire Hunt member Trevor Morse at Long Marston airfield, near Stratford-upon-Avon, on March 9 last year.
Birmingham Crown Court heard Mr Morse had been trying to stop Mr Griffiths, who had been monitoring the hunt from his gyrocopter, from taking off again after he stopped to refuel.
He refused to move out of the way as Mr Griffiths went towards him and the rear propeller of the gyrocopter cut Mr Morse's head from top to bottom, the court heard.
Gareth Evans QC, prosecuting, told the court: ''Just under a year ago, on March 9, 2009, a 48-year-old man called Trevor Morse, who was deliberately trying to stop a gyrocopter taking off, was killed.
''He was killed when his head was struck by the rear propeller blade of the gyrocopter. That gyrocopter was being driven by this defendant along the runway of Long Marston airfield in Warwickshire.
''The blade of the rear propeller cleaved Mr Morse's head from top to bottom. Unfortunately it also dramatically removed a portion of his brain and threw it away from him. Mercifully death was instantaneous.
''The prosecution say that this man, the defendant, is criminally liable for this death. We say that he is guilty of manslaughter, we say that he caused Trevor Morse's death by his own gross negligence.''
Mr Evans said Griffiths deliberately drove the gyrocopter at Mr Morse, with the rear propeller spinning at a speed approaching 200mph.
He said: "Doing so, we say, was reckless in the extreme because the manoeuvre carried with it a very, very real risk that Mr Morse would come into contact with the revolving, unguarded rear propeller blades of the gyrocopter."
The court heard Mr Morse was acting as a road monitor on March 3 last year during the last day of the hunting season for the Warwickshire Hunt.
Mr Evans said Griffiths owned the gyrocopter and although he was not an anti-hunt activist, had previously flown the machine above the hunt to monitor their actions, often with a passenger filming them.
On that day, when Mr Morse spotted the gyrocopter heading off towards Long Marston airfield to refuel, he got in a Land Rover with a fellow hunt supporter to confront the pilot.
When they were at the airfield, Mr Morse tried to stop Griffiths taking off by standing in front of the gyrocopter.
He refused to move out of the way, and as Griffiths drove forwards in the gyrocopter the rear propeller caught Mr Morse, cutting his head from top to bottom.
The jury was shown an edited video of the stand-off between Mr Morse and Griffiths - caught on camera by the man who had brought the fuel to the airfield, Peter Bunce.
As he refuses to move out of the way, a voice can be heard to say to Mr Morse: "You are obstructing him taking off, you have no right to do that, you have no right to do that."
The video shows Mr Morse enlisting the help of the woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, to come and stand in the way of the gyrocopter.
The propellers can be heard to speed up, followed by a bang.
The video shown to the jury was cut at the point the propeller hit Mr Morse, then cut again to see him lying on the ground.
A voice can then be heard to say: "Oh dear, the ---- didn't stand clear of it."
Mr Evans said it was quite clear Griffiths wanted to leave, and also clear Mr Morse was not willing to let him leave.
He said: "There is no doubt about it. His intention was stopping that gyrocopter from taking off. He was not standing there for the good of his health.
"At one stage he moved the Land Rover closer to the gyrocopter to stop it getting away in an attempt to block its getaway.
"He made it plain that he was obstructing that gyrocopter's take-off and when asked to get out of the way he refused to do so."
Mr Evans said Griffiths had not gently inched towards Mr Morse, but had travelled at speed.
He said: "This was not a general nudging movement. It was carried out, we say, at speed. This was no inching movement."
Mr Evans asked the jury to consider several things when watching the video, including whether there was a gap Griffiths was aiming for when he drove the gyrocopter at speed.
The court heard that in interview Griffiths told police Mr Morse had moved and he was aiming for a gap, but the video filmed by Peter Bunce suggested Mr Morse had not moved.
Mr Evans said: “The defendant’s case is that he did nothing criminal and that as far as his actions were deliberate they were acted out of necessity.”
But the prosecutor told the jury Griffiths could only rely on the defence of necessity if he acted to prevent himself being killed or seriously harmed, and if his actions were reasonable and proportionate.
He said: “The prosecution say there was no imminent risk of the defendant or his passenger being killed or seriously injured.
“We say that’s just not on. Mr Morse had made no threats, he had made no attempts to take the keys or prevent the refuelling operation and we say at all times was adopting a passive obstructive stance.”
He said although there had been minor incidents involving the pro and anti-hunt groups, there was no history in this case of hunt supporters using violence against the people who did not support the hunt.
Mr Evans said Griffiths had felt uneasy about Mr Morse being at the airfield, and had even written the registration number of the Land Rover on his palm.
But he said this unease was “far, far removed” from the fear required by the law to constitute the defence of necessity.

Art gallery hosts underground sex club
To quote: An art gallery in Austria has opened a nightly swingers club as part of a two-month project aimed at provoking debate about scandal in art.
The club, housed in the cellar of The Secession art gallery in central Vienna, offers visitors the chance to act out their sexual fantasies in leather and latex and includes a dance floor, body painting and a sado-masochism chamber.
Vienna Mayor Michael Haeupl said he did not approve of the club, but noted that outraged politicians and newspapers were playing into the artist's hands.
I am outraged because:
- it's not happening here, but way over there, so there's a level of mild disappointment.
- swinging does not equal BDSM
- not all swingers are kinky
- not all kinksters swing
- not all kinks are Sadomasochism.
- BDSM does not always equal sex, where swinging almost always has that as a serious component of its raison d'etre
Another reason to hate reporters...

It references this article: Parliament to vote on Tory motion against free speech on the Israeli-Palestinian issue and Israeli Apartheid.
"Houston, we got a problem."
And yes, are we still allowed to say that in Canada?
