FDA Says Coffee Not An Aphrodisiac

Straight from the No-Doy files comes a bombshell from the FDA. The Food And Drug Administration has declared that the coffee is not an aphrodisiac. While the FDA has Winnie the pooh-poohed the idea of aphrodisiacs for years, this time around they're saying that Magic Power Coffee may actually be a touch dangerous.

How To Date Like LeBron James

Unless you've been hiding under a rock or sequestered in some kind of freaky-deaky cult ranch for the last few weeks, you know that LeBron James is on a mission to bless a new NBA team with his presence. Despite seeming like just another media circus created by a wildly self-involved professional basketball player, the King's quest for a team is a great lesson in dating.

Judge Orders Couple To Erect "Divorce Wall"

A real Shecky Green of a judge in Williamsburg, NY (that's hipsterville, USA) has told a splitting couple to put up a "divorce wall" in their Victorian home, as the husband refuses to move out. The couple, Pinchs and Nechama Gold, are Orthodox Jews who have been together for 21 years. Things, however, just aren't working. Unfortunately, New York is the last of the lower 48 states to still forbid no-fault divorces, so the couple has been forced to find a way to blame each other for the separation they both so desperately desire.

$30K Prize For Solving Taiwan's Fertility Problem

As you likely know, the island nation of Japan is on the losing end of a population battle. It's not that the oldsters are making things miserable for the younger folks with measures like adding stool softener to the drinking water. It's just that young people aren't making babies fast enough. There must be something in the water in that section of the Pacific, as the island nation of Taiwan is having troubles making babies too. Maybe there's some industrial pollutant making its way from the Yangtze River into the East China Sea. Whatever the case, the country that calls itself the Republic of China has one of the lowest birthrates, and it's up to the Ministry of the Interior to get the population a-procreating.

Absolutely, Positively No Sex In The Space Station

NASA Commander Alan Poindexter says that it's all professional and above board. You'd guess that it could get weird if the sex went down not to mention zero-g messy. Plus micro-gravity causes muscle and bone-density loss and space sex could crack a hip or pull a groin.

China Bans Soldiers From Online Dating

To date the Chinese government has had a one-child policy, they shutdown a sex theme park before it got off the ground, they're making a major push for safe sex and they've clamped down on internet dating sites on grounds of prostitution. And now they're taking a little different approach to the love lives of their soldiers; they are clamping down on what their soldiers do online… including but not limited to online dating.

Japanese Robot Is Supposed To Cause Baby Fever

Japan, as you might know, has not been reproducing at a replacement rate (2.1 births per woman), and that has a number of social scientists on edge. And so, a robotic baby that cries and interacts somewhat like a real baby -- but looks a little like a giant Tamagotchi -- has been created to convince childless couples to have a kid. The hope is that Yotaro will charm the pants off these couples, and get that birthrate going back north. There are likely skeptics.

Are You Out Of His League?

There are just a few things that all of us can agree upon: 1. Taxes aren't that fun. 2. Healthcare is might pricey. And 3. There is something really unsettling about exceptionally good-looking people dating exceptionally unattractive people. Sometimes, the circumstances are extenuating: he's rich or she wants to look hotter by comparison or he has a fetish or she lost a bet of some kind. The possibilities are endless. But that doesn't keep people from judging them based on looks alone. In fact, a veritable cottage industry (I don't even know what that means) has arisen based upon people's disbelief that SHE IS WITH HIM? A new website wants to let people know, definitively, that they can do better.
