  • A new study provides some data: The hallucinogen kicks off an unusually intense and short-lasting high, with no obvious ill effects, researchers report in an upcoming Drug and Alcohol Dependence paper.“This is a landmark paper because it’s the first paper in which authentic salvinorin A was administered to human volunteers under controlled conditions, and it was shown to be hallucinogenic,” says psychiatrist and pharmacologist Bryan Roth of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who was not involved in the research. “All we had before were anecdotal reports, where people had bought salvia extract from their local smoke shop.”

  • Drive the Chieftain Battle Tank – Over a Car! Now comes the ultimate fun. Crush a car in the 60 ton Chieftain. That’s right… drive over a cars…on purpose!
    Price: All This Tank Driving Fun for $975
  • An NYPD officer charged in a scheme to buy $40,000 a week worth of an anesthetic drug popular at dance clubs and “rave” parties pleaded not guilty yesterday.Kifah Othman, 40, allegedly tried to obtain the mass quantities of ketamine from a retired cop-turned-tattoo- parlor owner who’s cooperating with the feds in a bid for leniency in a New Jersey narcotics case.

    The ex-cop secretly recorded Othman saying he wanted the drugs, known as “Special K,” to sell with a partner “who operated in New York City’s Chinatown,” Manhattan federal court records show.

  • So we spend millions of taxpayer dollars on the National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign — a campaign that has been shown to have almost no positive effect and, in fact, has even been shown to have a reverse effect.The advertising agencies they hire know this, so they keep trying to come up with a new and different approach that is going to appeal to kids today.

    They even pay lip service to the idea that trying to use advertising by the government to change youth behavior is absurd..

  • U.S. authorities indicted a customs officer on Thursday for smuggling guns and drug money through Atlanta’s airport after they nabbed him in a sting operation linked to a big seizure of the drug ecstasy.As part of Operation Rude Beast, undercover agents gave customs officer Devon Samuels $72,000 and told him it came from drug sales. He smuggled the cash through the airport to Jamaica, where Jamaican undercover agents received it.

    Samuels used his badge to bypass security and avoid airport screening, according to a federal indictment.

  • Steve Bard’s crazy room of the future that you enter through a dark cylindrical portal.
  • Today’s focus is on the legendary Mel Blanc and his fantastic and unforgettable anti-narcotics PSA’s, as ‘Mel Blanc’ and five of his most famous Warner Brothers cartoon characters. As it’s a holiday, we won’t go into what a cranky fellow he allegedly was, and how so few of his collegues have much good to say of him, aside from acknowledging what a funny actor and how professional he was. Thrill to Porky at a smoky, scary drug party and being offered animal tranquilizers, Yosemite searching for tough guys not softened up by hard drugs to duel with, and so much more. I promised these last Christmas, and now I’m finally giving them up. Including a tiny bonus track from George Harrison, just because.
  • Joe Biden is a noted drug warrior who coined the term “Drug Czar” and helped launch the White House’s Office of National Drug Control Policy.
  • Proving that it’s not just western nutcases who like to wear tin foil hats, this Russian man has designed an $80,000 tin foil house capsule to survive 2012…
  • “I cursed, and it cost me $500. Are you serious? Where in America do you get charged $500 for two words?” Terry Duncan said.
  • But after the charges were read, one of the jurors raised a hand.“She said, ‘I’ve got a real problem with these marijuana cases,’ ” Judge Deschamps recalled on Wednesday. “And after she got through, a couple more raised their hands.” All told, five jurors raised questions about marijuana prosecution.

    And so it was that Mr. Cornell soon became the lucky recipient of a case of almost-a-jury nullification, as prosecutors soon found themselves cutting a deal to dismiss the misdemeanor possession charge out of fear that they would not be able to find 12 jurors in this marijuana-friendly state to convict.

  • It was the wrong kind of white Christmas.Two men on a Delta Airlines flight from Puerto Rico were busted at JFK Airport yesterday after their suitcases were found stuffed with cocaine, sources said.

    Drug Enforcement Administration officials confiscated more than 92 pounds of the white powder — with a street value of nearly $3 million –in the luggage of Emanuel Rojas and Israel Rodriguez, authorities said.

    The DEA had been tipped off about the men.

  • Two Doctors Compare Addictiveness of Six Well Known Drugs
  • This incident shows that censorship is a slippery slope. The first victim here was Wikileaks. Now it’s a Wikileaks mirror. Will a news organization that posts cables and provides journalistic analysis be next? Or a blogger who posts links to news articles describing the cables? If intermediaries are willing to use the potential for future DDOS attacks as a reason to cut off users, they can cut off anyone for anything.
  • it’s time to drop the Vandal you lame lame little fucking boyas I’ve stopped reading your putrid love-a-thon for anything that may get you a little a ‘head’ in later life I’ve had this pointed out to me that you stand shoulder to shoulder on the Blu removal with Deitch, so much for freedom of speech, standing up to authority, daring to be different, fucking having a backbone

    give it up

  • Last week Banksy declared that all profits from his current print sale would be gifted to Russian art anarchist group Voina. Known for drawing an enormous cock on a bridge opposite the ex-KGB offices, and instigating a sex party in a museum (see above). We spoke to the group (half of which were replying from prison).Voina (or “War” to give them their English name) are a radical art group concerned with challenging the Russian establishment on important political issues such as attitudes towards homophobia, race, and the totalitarian actions of the state, through creating outrageous and provocative art performances in Russia. Two of their members; Oleg Vorotnikov and Leonid Nikolayev have been detained for more than a month at St Petersburg Prison on false allegations. Don’t Panic spoke to the group.

  • Traci’s debut – and it shows Actually she was 15yrs old , She only made 1 porn movie at age 18 before FBI arrested her , so all her movies were made when she was underage , Some other pornstars investigated during the early 80’s and possibly appeared in porn movies underage include Alexandria Quinn , Kristara Barrington and Ali Moore , These other girls didn’t draw as much attention possibly due to the fact they weren’t very popular or overly attractive , at least one of the pornstars appears alongside Traci Lords in more than one movie , There is one movie were possibly all of the actors appear making nearly the entire female cast underage at the time the movie was filmed. Does this still happen today ?

  • Alexandra Quinn is a retired Canadian porn star who has been active in the industry since the late-1980s.Quinn’s first year in the industry took place before her 18th birthday. Age 18 is the legal minimum in which United States citizens may appear in pornography. Like the case of Traci Lords that came several years earlier, it was discovered in the early-1990s that Quinn’s earlier films were made before she was 18. According to a 2000 interview with Quinn, the discovery occurred when she forgot to bring her fake ID to a session and used her real ID, thinking they would not notice the difference.

  • Google is officially denying widespread Internet rumors that its Google Earth software located the mythical sunken city of Atlantis off the coast of Africa. Either that, or Google is totally trying to hide something. Since I always appreciate a nice juicy conspiracy theory, I’m going to go with the latter.Google is officially denying widespread Internet rumors that its Google Earth software located the mythical sunken city of Atlantis off the coast of Africa. Either that, or Google is totally trying to hide something. Since I always appreciate a nice juicy conspiracy theory, I’m going to From what it sounds like, a British aeronautical engineer was playing around with the new Google Earth 5.0, which includes undersea data, and noticed something funny off the coast of Africa, about 600 miles west of the Canary Islands, that resembled a pattern of a street grid. According to the United Kingdom’s Press Association, the pattern of streets equated to an area the size of Wales.
  • Gillian Cooke’s super tight all-in-one ripped as she bent over just seconds before jumping into the bobsleigh with her team-mate Nicola Minichiello.
  • “We know there’s a lot of traditional knowledge that is out there in cultures and has a lot of use and has been adopted in modern cultures — things like aspirin where the active ingredient is derived from willow bark,” said Fleischer.“So I think there’s potential to find things in these pills — or combinations of things — that might actually be useful.”

    Touwaide cautions that researchers shouldn’t assume that ancient people left us texts about medicines without knowing full well what they were about and how to use them.

    “We have found uses of plants which have been forgotten for years. My point is that if ancient cultures, over the centuries, have spent time, energy and money to keep this information, it’s not because this information doesn’t work,” said Touwaide.

Jesus is the Reason We’re Fightin’ These Heathens

    • It is inscripted ΑΛΕΞΑΜΕΝΟΣ (ΑΛΕΞΑΜΕΝΟC) ΣΕΒΕΤΕ (CEBETE) ΘΕΟΝ, which translates as “Alexamenos respects God”. It is presumed to be making fun of a Christian soldier.
    • GREAT ideas can feel like they come out of nowhere. Now we’re a step closer to understanding where they do originate. The thinking is that areas for language and creativity compete in the brain, which might explain why some people with brain damage suddenly become artistic.

      Originality – or the ability to think up novel ideas that don’t occur to many other people – is a key aspect of creativity. But researchers are struggling to pin down where the gift comes from.

    • After Deitch decided to erase the mural, the two met for dinner and:

      had a very gentle conversation in wich [sic] he asked me to paint another piece on the same wall, suggesting he would have preferred a piece that ‘invites people to come in the museum’. I told him that i will not to do that, for obvious reasons, and that probably I was not the artist best suited for this task.

      The museum then proceeded to whitewash the mural without informing the artist, who learned of the whitewashing through a local blogger. When Blu returned to Italy, he was barraged by requests from journalists for interviews, and his inbox included:

      … an email from Deitch, in which he asked me to ‘sign’ a press release, explaining the motivation of the cancellation in order to calm down the censorship accusation.

    • December’s total lunar eclipse is the only total eclipse of the moon of this year. For the Western Hemisphere, the eclipse will “officially” begin on Dec. 21 at 12:29 a.m. EST (9:29 p.m. PST on Dec. 20) as the moon begins to enter Earth’s outer, or penumbral, shadow.

      But even in clear weather, skywatchers will not notice any changes in the moon’s appearance until about 45 minutes later when a slight “smudge” or shading begins to become evident on the upper left portion of the moon’s disk.

    • Sit and gaze at world heritage sights. Stand and watch live international sport through well-placed windows. Squat while looking-out over the world’s most beautiful canyons. A loo with a great view? It can be so.
    • The demo comes from ThriXXX software, a maker of 3D role-playing sex simulation games, which said in a statement today that “the open-sourcing of device drivers for Kinect have enabled the…device to be used directly from connected PCs operating on Windows 7…The Kinect interface provides another exciting interface option for users of the sex simulation software to control the experience in extraordinary new ways. Controller-free is the next generation of game user interfaces, allowing users to use gestures, spoken commands, or objects to control in-game action that creates a completely new sex game activity and magical experience.”
    • A white bank robber in Ohio recently used a “hyper-realistic” mask manufactured by a small Van Nuys company to disguise himself as a black man, prompting police there to mistakenly arrest an African American man for the crimes.
      Advertisement
      In October, a 20-year-old Chinese man who wanted asylum in Canada used one of the same company’s masks to transform himself into an elderly white man and slip past airport security in Hong Kong.

      Authorities are even starting to think that the so-called Geezer Bandit, a Southern California bank robber believed for months to be an old man, might actually be a younger guy wearing one of the disguises made by SPFXMasks.

    • The line between a “cult” and a “sect” or a “religion” can be thin, but a couple of factors generally define modern use of the word “cult:” Cults revolve around the teachings of one living (or recently living) person, and this person claims to be “chosen” for an important mission on Earth. Cults require unwavering subservience to the ideals of their leader, who is to be obeyed above all other authorities. Cults typically require its followers to eschew all relationships outside of the cult, including friends and family. Some cults are just creepy while others are downright dangerous: for the purpose of this article, each cult will be assigned a rating of one to four nuts: one nut being relatively harmless, four nuts being don’t-drink-the-kool-aid dangerous.
    • His name was well-known, even if it is whispered with muted distaste in photography and copyrights circles. His body of work is unknown, eclipsed by a single pictorial he undertook for American socialite Teri Shields. In 1975, Garry Gross scribbled his name into a dubious footnote in the history of photography by photographing a nude 10-year-old Brooke Shields. The photos of bejeweled soon-to-be-child-actress, in thick makeup and in a steaming, ornate bathtub, however, wouldn’t become known outside the arts community for another three years.
    • Japan’s pet market is so evolved, and undeniably fashion-conscious, that across town in Harajuku we found a line stretching down the block with female dog owners waiting for a limited edition line to debut at the girliest pet shop you’ve ever seen.
    • Karsten Nohl’s assessment of dozens of car makes and models found weaknesses in the way immobilisers are integrated with the rest of the car’s electronics.

      The immobiliser unit should be connected securely to the vehicle’s electronic engine control unit, using the car’s internal data network. But these networks often use weaker encryption than the immobiliser itself, making them easier to crack.

      What’s more, one manufacturer was even found to use the vehicle ID number as the supposedly secret key for this internal network. The VIN, a unique serial number used to identify individual vehicles, is usually printed on the car. “It doesn’t get any weaker than that,” Nohl says.

    • Just a few days after this news was revealed, Maggie Koerth-Baker at BoingBoing is surprised at how little coverage the supposed cure has received. “If a miracle happened, why isn’t it more obvious?” she asks. Some research clarifies that the patient, Timothy Ray Brown, who was HIV positive, also had leukemia for which he was treated in 2007 with chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. The bone marrow came from a donor who “possessed a rare genetic mutation that makes a very small percentage of humans resistant to HIV infection,” which Brown then adopted. The success was publicized at the time, making the recent report more of a follow-up confirming that Brown continues to stave off the virus.
    • Since 1975 the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor has been tracking students self-reported use of cannabis and other intoxicants, and every year their use of these substances trends either up or down from the prior survey. Predictably, when self-reported use goes down, drug war lackeys like Drug Czar Gil Kerlikowske claim that drug prohibition is working. Conversely, when use trends upward — as it did this past year — drug warriors respond by pointing the blame at everyone else.
    • The blog even finds the vegan soap company’s mission statement: “Being respectful of the earth’s natural resources, and being a steward of this wonderful planet is what Hugo Naturals is all about.”

      If and when this deal goes through, every bar of Hugo Naturals vegan soap you buy at Whole Foods will fund the world’s most infamous mercenary company. Or, if you prefer a more positive view, every terrorist snatch-and-grab contract Blackwater fields will help to pay for vegan soap.

    • When Duncan Hines partnered with film studio Filmaka to release a new ad campaign on YouTube this week for their “Amazing Glazes” frosting line, their aim was to “inspire creativity during the height of baking season” and portray how their icing “makes dessert sing.” The theme of the first video is “Hip Hop Cupcakes,” (see below), but rather than striking a chord with urban bakers, the video just seems to be pissing them off. Readers and bloggers have criticized the film’s director, Josh Binder, and the dessert company’s PR department for failing to see how the cupcake characters might be mistaken for performers in blackface. Director Binder has a number of videos that might be considered “controversial,” like one for Western gear in which a cowboy lassos two women to be his companions, and another that shows samurai bread loaves crying “hi-YA!” at one another.
    • Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-TX) has filed an amendment that would prevent the Federal Communications Commission from enforcing net-neutrality regulation.

      Seven other Republicans have signed onto the bill, including notorious home wrecker and all-round unscrupulous person, John Ensign (R-NV).

      They didn’t simply introduce legislation. They attached an amendment to an existing bill that concerns construction projects for military and veterans.

      This will force legislators that feel net neutrality is essential to maintaining a strong democracy to vote against a bill supporting veterans. That is one low-down dirty manuever.

    • After an A&E film crew urged police to create “great video footage” for its show “The First 48 hours,” officers conducted a “commando-style raid” on the wrong house and shot to death a 7-year-old girl, the girl’s family says in Federal Court. The parents and grandmother of Aiyana Stanley-Jones say A&E’s film crew “were present before and during the assault” and recorded the whole thing during their ride-along with police.
    • Artist Kunle Martins, President of New York-based IRAK crew has joined forces with Spanish paint manufacturer MONTANA to develop the IRAK YELLOW can of spray paint.

      Produced in a limited edition of 500, the can reflects the iconic IRAK graffiti crew’s sticker color.

    • Guards at a privately run prison in Arizona stripped, beat and kicked inmates and threatened to kill them, banged their heads on tables while they were handcuffed, and “the warden himself” joined in threatening their families, 18 inmates say in state court. Then the Corrections Corporation of America and its employees, who run the prison, “deliberately destroyed and failed to preserve evidence of their wrongdoing, including videotapes,” and “deliberately falsified reports,” according to the complaint.
    • If accurate, the disclosures would confirm the worst fears of Pakistani nationalist hawks and threaten relations between Washington and New Delhi. But they are not accurate.

      An extensive search of the WikiLeaks database by the Guardian by date, name and keyword failed to locate any of the incendiary allegations. It suggests this is the first case of WikiLeaks being exploited for propaganda purposes.

    • At a meeting in New York on Wednesday, representatives from Brazil called for an international body made up of Government representatives that would to attempt to create global standards for policing the internet – specifically in reaction to challenges such as WikiLeaks.

      The Brazilian delegate stressed, however, that this should not be seen as a call for an “takeover” of the internet.

      India, South Africa, China and Saudi Arabia appeared to favour a new possible over-arching inter-government body.

    • In the process of producing their now-canceled documentary on Stanley Kubrick’s landmark film, Douglas Trumbull and David Larson have uncovered 17 minutes that Kubrick cut from 2001 just after release—in perfect condition.
    • There was a time when you had to go down to the arcade or pizza shop and pump quarters into machines if you wanted to enjoy a video game experience. Then computers and home gaming consoles brought video game entertainment into our living rooms. Now Sega is cornering the niche bathroom gaming market with a gaming interface named “Toirettsu” in which the user controls the game by peeing on sensors in a urinal.
