A site called the No Apologies Press recently planted a personal ad on a dating website and monitored the response. The ad read:

"I'm looking for a 23-40-year-old guy... I'm a 35-year-old, attractive blonde. Not looking for anything beyond a physical relationship right now... No pic? Don't even bother."

The response was reliably shocking. Many thought pictures of their cocks would seal the deal. One sent in a pic of his pink sword alongside a can of coke and a ruler presumably for scale's sake. However a "cute, built (married) Asian guy" remarked "I like the no-strings attached requirement because that's the only kind I can have." His photo included his wife. See the whole sorry mess here.

Since the South Korean government has lifted it's ban on 8,100 domain names that it feared could be used for sexual reasons dotcom fever has raised it's inevitably temporary head. was the most requested domain with 58,000 applicants. Unfortunately the internet boom is more of a bust in Ireland. There have been only 2,000 installations of broadband in the whole country. Ireland offline is campaigning to get it back on track.

Watch the The Prime Number Shitting Bear in amazement.

Why not join the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement? I feel they have an interesting point, in that they think the answer to the world's problems is to slowly kill off the human race: "The hopeful alternative to the extinction of millions of species of plants and animals is the voluntary extinction of one species: Homo sapiens... When every human chooses to stop breeding, Earth's biosphere will be allowed to return to its former glory, and all remaining creatures will be free to live, die, evolve (if they believe in evolution), and will perhaps pass away, as so many of Mother Nature's 'experiments' have done throughout the eons. Good health will be restored to the Earth's ecology... to the "life form" known by many as Gaia." Oh dear...

Failing that, simply just live out the entirity of your days online instead with The Simulator. Excellent.
