  • If every piece of art that offended some person or some group was removed from a museum, our museums might start looking empty – or would contain nothing more than pabulum. Goya’s great nudes? Gone. The Inquisition called them porn.
  • “[F]or eleven seconds of that meandering, stream-of-consciousness work—the full version is 30 minutes long—a crucifix appears onscreen with ants crawling on it,” explained Washington Post art critic Blake Gopnik. “It seems such an inconsequential part of the total video that neither I nor anyone I’ve spoken to who saw the work remembered it at all.”
  • Thanks to technology and Internet-enabled services, more music is being purchased, more music is being heard, and artists are getting paid. But the traditional music industry measures success using a bygone standard, leading to a lopsided perspective of how artists can achieve success in this day and age. And in our view, this leads to an undervaluing of the broad, actual advantages of the Internet — and innovative services using the Internet as a platform — in rewarding artists for their creativity.
  • “We knew mercury could depress their testosterone (male sex hormone) levels,” explained Dr Peter Frederick from the University of Florida, who led the study. “But we didn’t expect this.”
  • If you thought intrusive body scans and airport pat downs were just a fluke in the War on Terror bureaucracy, fear not: The Department of Homeland Security has plenty of other programs that will make your skin crawl. For instance, Big Brother is reading your tweets and Facebook status updates, searching for dangerous words and phrases such as militia, Iraq, and, ironically, body scanner.
  • “Most obvious and most significant of our findings is that the number of reported cases of child sex abuse immediately dropped markedly after [sexually explicit material] was legalized and became available,” the report, which was published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour, reads. “We consider instructive our findings for the Czech Republic that have echoed those found in Denmark and Japan that where so-called child-pornography was readily available without restriction the incidence of child sexual abuse was lower than when its availability was restricted.” The study suggests “artificially produced materials,” not children, be used in the creation of pornography, and that pornography can often act as a substitute for sexual assaults.
  • Officials believe the fetus has been in the building for more than 25 years.
  • “Baby Klaus,” as his parents and local media are calling him, was born with hydrocephalus, a build-up of excess fluid in the brain that has caused his head to swell to more than 130% larger than a typical newborn’s head.
  • Jones said the caller then said that a “midget” who was 4 feet 3 inches tall was barricaded in the room next to him and that he needed to help police get to him. With that, the report said, Jones took his wrench and began to break away the wallboard behind the room door. He broke through to the next room, but then stopped due to complaints from other guests about the loud noises.
  • “The decision wasn’t caving in,” said Martin E. Sullivan, the museum’s director. “We don’t want to shy away from anything that is controversial, but we want to focus on the museum’s and this show’s strengths.”

    Yeah, right.

  • Two women are arrested for shoplifting and police say they used their bodies to conceal the goods. Edmond police authorities say it was at the Edmond TJ Maxx that loss prevention officers found the duo stuffing items under their belly fat and breasts.
  • Thanks Patrick Nybakken
  • A new father in Pennsylvania is facing marijuana charges after he lit up a joint — instead of a cigar — to celebrate his child’s birth at Uniontown Hospital Tuesday morning.
  • When officers arrived, theater employees took them to a projection booth where “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows” was being shown. From there, authorities were able to look into the back row and observe a man touching his exposed genitals, according to the news release. Officers then entered the theater and arrested him.
  • In a ritual that spans three days, her heart and other body parts are removed and eaten. In the course of those days the priest has a vision: he meets the devil who tells him he will become a great warrior. The devil says to increase his power he must continue the rituals of child sacrifice and cannibalism. The initiation is complete and the priest is now one of the most powerful leaders in West Africa. The priest is 11 years old. As prophesied, the boy priest grew up to become one of Liberia’s most notorious warlords: General Butt Naked. He and his boy soldiers would charge into battle naked apart from boots and machine guns.
  • It’s called ‘Graffiti’ not ‘Street Art’, get it right.
  • The dun language or dun lingo is a style of East Coast hip hop slang popularized in the mid-1990s by rappers such as Queensbridge’s Mobb Deep, Tragedy Khadafi, Capone-N-Noreaga, Nas and AZ, and to a lesser extent Raekwon and Ghostface Killah of the Wu-Tang Clan. While much of the slang had already been introduced by this point, the term “dunn language” was first recorded in Mobb Deep’s 1999 single “Quiet Storm”, in which Prodigy raps: “you’s a dick blower, [you] tryin’ to speak the Dunn Language?/ “what’s the drilly” with that though? “It aint bangin”/ you hooked on Mobb phonics, Infamous ‘bonics.”
  • A veteran New Orleans police officer said he purposely torched a car containing a gunshot victim’s body in the days after Hurricane Katrina because he was stressed, exhausted and felt disorder had gripped the city. Share Tweet 38 Comments “I had seen enough bodies,” officer Greg McRae testified Monday. “I had seen enough rot.” For several hours Monday afternoon, McRae tried to explain his actions to a federal jury that will soon decide his fate and that of four other current or former New Orleans police officers charged with either fatally shooting Henry Glover, burning his body, or covering up his death.
  • Wellington police will decide later today whether to lay charges against legalise cannabis protesters who pushed a shopping trolley full of burning marijuana into the central police station foyer.
  • Scores of empty houses and rentals in Las Vegas — many of them in upscale neighborhoods — have become incubators, literally, for crime. The stucco walls and tightly drawn shades hide elaborate systems of special lights, fans, sprinklers and timers, all carefully arranged to cultivate millions of dollars worth of marijuana. Last year, Metro Police raided 108 homes, seizing 12,466 plants and about $70,000 in cash. This year police have confiscated 10,311 plants and more than $90,000 from 112 “grow houses” — more than double the number of homes raided in 2007.
  • It turned out the kids smoking weed containing lots of the chemical cannabidiol (CBD) could remember details of the story just as well stoned as sober. Meanwhile, those smoking the low-CBD marijuana fit the stereotype of the forgetful pothead. The findings fit into a growing library of data demonstrating the possible health benefits of CBD, which is naturally found in marijuana. CBD appears to fend off cancerous tumors, prevent diabetes and epileptic seizures, and protect nerve cells from degradation. It doesn’t combat the effects of THC, the ingredient in marijuana that causes a “high,” and can even prevent anxiety. On top of all that, Curran’s preliminary research suggests that CBD can help prevent marijuana users from becoming addicted to the substance.
  • Click through the slideshow below of people having the time of their 20 year old lives, and try to tell me Four Loko isn’t really really fucking cool.
  • Just as the controversy surrounding caffeinated alcoholic beverages like the infamous Four Loko was dying down, a new boozy fad is whipping up concern among public health officials. Whipped Lightning, which bills itself as “the world’s first alcohol-infused whipped cream,” and its competitor CREAM (slogan – “Get Whipped”) are rapidly gaining attention as the next big alcoholic trend.
