Nutty Judge Crazy About Condoms

You've probably heard this a million times before, but some activist judges really think it's their job to push public policy… even if they have to get their hands dirty. A judge from Intercourse, PA took it upon himself to make sure that various women were in desperate need of barrier protection from pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease, and handed them condoms inside of acorns.

YES! Finally, We Can Have Our McWedding

Fast food has really taken a thumping in the last few decades. To the point that visiting them is either a guilty pleasure or a punchline.

If You Wait To Marry, Will The Good Ones Be Taken?

Is a child bride slightly OK if betrothed to a child husband? In some weird news, a Syrian family has decided to lock up an engagement before the good ones are all taken. A woman in Taiwan never had that option, and had to marry herself. Strange love, indeed.

The Saga Divorce Is On The Rise

Many men over 50 get divorced in part because they are no longer having sex, whereas roughly the same number of women get divorced because their partner has become emotionally distant and cold. Sort of a chicken and egg situation, if you ask me. Also, as the home becomes an empty nest, some couples realize that they were staying together for the kids, and don't have much else in common. What's at the root of it all?

Pretty Good Mom Dates, Dumps Stepson

An English woman decided that since she had the old bull, she just had to try the young calf. A man in the UK was dumped by his wife in favor of his son who was, in turn, dumped for his best friends. You'd guess the captain of the swim team would be next somewhere. But where does this tawdry tale of taboo and infidelity rank on the Woody Allen meter?


Could Apple Have Stopped Brett Favre's Sexting?

Apple's Steve Jobs said (paraphrasing!) to get an Android if you want to watch porn rather than his iPhone. And now he's taking sexting on headfirst. Apple has a product coming out of 2008 patent that will allow users (and parents!) to filter objectionable text message content. Will this really change anything for anyone? Could this have stopped Brett Favre?

And after the babies are birthed, the bad info keeps on coming. Did this survey hit a rotten pocket of misinformation or the tip of an under-informed iceberg.
