- Female ejaculation and Dan Savage – He had a woo-filled interview about female ejaculation on his podcast, but now he’s asked Jen McCreight to talk with him about what went wrong.
- Bless this house – “With the real estate industry stuck in doldrums, it’s a boom market for links to a higher power — whether feng shui, psychics, or saints.” From Buzz Parsec.
- Houston Press offers explanation, apology for printing “10 Hottest Female Sex Offenders” list – From 9bar.
- The History Channel discovers the real cause of the black death – Ah yes, from the show whose most common phrase is, “Some ancient astronaut theorists believe…”
Thanks for including Skeptical Humanities!
Well, the bit about the black death has me convinced.
I mean, folks saw a man with a scythe? A person with a scythe on a field outside of town can’t have been a very common sight in that time since tractor lawnmowers are well known to have been all the rage.
Were there two doofuses from San Dimas following him around too, ’cause I may have an alternate theory.
Let’s see; blessing houses-nope, Dan Savage getting the Santorum knocked out of him-nope, E.T. pooping in the gene pool-nope, hottest sex… uh, no.
Did anyone see the football player fall on the dancer and just about break her neck last night?
That sucks huh?
I use the term “History” Channel pretty loosely these days.
So do they.
Maybe a change to Hystery Channel would be in order, it worked for Syfy; wait, nevermind.
Maybe just HC…like “The ‘Learning’ Channel” became TLC because I don’t know what they do anymore.
Actually, it’s just “History” now, not “The History Channel”
Then they should just change it to H and be done with it.
Their new slogan will be “Nothing is more addictive than H.”
I think it’s catchy.
I have a better idea: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O2yVZCVLK3E Bullsh*t or Not?
“Using undiscovered evidence, we’ve pieced together the events leading up to the first murder.”
Wait, of the two words in their name, they chose to drop the one that was not wildly misleading?
Surely, in a sane world, they would have dropped “History” and just called themselves “Channel”.
“CHANNEL! Where you can watch PROGRAMS!”
I am totally seeing that in bold black lettering on a yellow background like the old-school generics.
I’ve gotta go have me a BEER with some CHIPS and SALSA and watch PROGRAMS on the CHANNEL.
The History Channel Discovers the Real Cause of the Black Death: In my opinion, History Channel executives don’t believe in that stuff any more than we do. They are in it for the money, and they just don’t care about the content of their programming.
I have a good name for the History Channel: The MPW Channel (media pimps and whores).
