This just in from London...I still don't really get how 23% of men said they have faked an orgasm... Brit sex survey proves anticlimactic 'You name it, the British are doing it' Monday, November 18, 2002 Posted: 1:23 PM EST (1823 GMT) LONDON (Reuters) -- Women are not the only ones to turn on the acting abilities in the bedroom, said a survey released ahead of the world's largest adult festival in London. The survey of 2,500 Britons, by organizers of the Erotica 2002 festival, said 23 percent of men claimed to have faked an orgasm, compared to 56 percent of women. Almost half of the participants confessed to enjoying threesomes, the survey added. Erotica said in a publicity statement sent over the weekend its survey had destroyed the myth the British are a nation of prudes. "Orgies, lust, cheating and faking it -- you name it, the British are doing it," the statement said. Organisers of the festival, which begins on Friday, expect

Interesting Japanese TV show. Sounds like something you could get away with on comedy central... We're all hooked on a bizarre TV show in Japan, a "mannequin drama" OH! Mikey, which is filmed with outrageous looking fashion mannequins in place of actors. It's the story of the Fuccon family, father James, mother Barbara and son Mikey, who came from America to start their new life in Japan. In each episode of the show, the Fuccon family undergoes new trials and tribulations as they learn about Japan. It's a kind of parody of foreigners living in Japan, and the fact that expressions on the faces of the mannequins never change adds to the bizarreness of the story.
I love this they use technology in vegas. Those shows on the learning channel are always know, the ones about how they use cameras etc. to catch cheats. This one in Popular Science is about how they use networking to make huge payoffs on slots, etc. [More]
uh oh... Study: Lengthy computer use saps energy Japanese researchers publish a study showing that prolonged daily computer use can make you sore and deplete your strength, energy and motivation. [More]
Back in the day, I was a huge Smiths fan. I remember having next to my bed my Smiths stack of cds, next to the Cure stack, which was next to the Police stack... I found a little music rag out of singapore and they had this quote from Morrissey. Serious topic, funny ending... For fans of the Smiths: Meat Is Murder, released in February 1985, was The Smiths' third album. Brilliantly successful, the album occupied the number one position of the UK mainstream charts for 33 weeks, and the number one position of the UK's alternative charts for an unprecedented 64 weeks. Frontman Morrissey, when asked if there was a link between home violence and institutionalized violence like the meat industry and war, said: "It's completely connected. It all weaves in and it's all kind of embroidered to make one overall foul image. From the time that you get hit when you're a child, as covered in a song called Barbarism Begins At Home, violence is the only answer. Conversati

Panama begins blocking IP ports In an apparent attempt to stem telephone company revenue losses due to Internet telephony, the government of Panama has decreed that 24 UDP ports be blocked by all Internet service providers. Okay, this makes me mad. I'm pretty confident that this won't stay in place. Too much business is done over IP Telephony these days. Those call centers in Latin America that service the U.S. probably go through Panama. Pretty lame move by Panama, in my opinion.
