    I lay in bed all day with a laptop burning my genitals so I don't have a neck-craning problem when it comes to viewing my monitor. No, what I have is a giant gut in the way which is why I've learned to read the screen upside-down and backwards using the sex-mirror I double-sid... / Continue →

    I know that's not actually custard in the picture, but it IS instant pistachio pudding, which is not only delicious, but may or may not be stab-proof (you slather it on your chest -- I'll get a knife). British scientists have created a way to make bulletproof vests lighter a... / Continue →
