Tidbits

I had this long post planned on hate crime. But I just don’t have the time today. Instead you get tidbits…

Tidbit #1
An airline makes a sexy young woman cover up her assets lest she offend other passengers. I really don’t know how airlines get away with this sort of anti-libertarian prudishness. The woman was breaking no morality laws in the country of embarkation or of the airline’s operation. If this sort of decision is allowed to go unquestioned, then airlines are free to chastise passengers for other harmless behaviours that the airline might be prejudiced against… like interracial couples, homosexual couples, wearing faded jeans, speaking in Arabic…. the mind boggles at the possibilities.

There’s a famous internet meme about the video “resume” of one Aleksey Vayner, who is apparently a delusional pathological liar who believes he is a champion weight lifter, ballroom dancer, world class tennis pro, Olympic skier, CIA operative, novelist, hedge fund owner, etc. Google his name and watch the video. If it weren’t so sad, it would be hilarious.

Well the dude who plays “George Michael” on the brilliant TV show Arrested Development has created a spoof of the famous Vayner video.

From N.K. comes this story of an Ontario court ruling that a hand-job is not sex, and therefore not considered an act of prostitution when exchanged for cash. Well, if “manual release” is no longer considered sex, then the number of notches on my bedpost just went down considerably. And millions of young men have just discovered that their own hands are now technically virgins.

Tidbit #4
From Darth Vadum comes this video explaining to the world (and to women) the intricate rules of male washroom etiquette. Ever read Isaac Asimov’s The Caves of Steel? If you have, you know why I’m bringing it up.

Tidbit #5
I leave you with the best Family Guy opening segment ever
