kiss_the_muse I hope I'm not stepping on anyone's toes... and if I am then please delete this. :/

I hate it when people promote communities, but I promise promise this one is directly related to this community. I'd love to try to get lots of members and to see it grow to the size this one is.


See if you like it, we'd love to have you. :)

and again... sorry if I bothered anyone!

Soap Lake, WA has a plan to build the world's largest lava lamp.

There are some great artist's renderings on the website, along with my WTF moment of the day: the giant lava lamp song.

if the assholes on the titanic had hit the iceberg head-on, it probabably would not have sank. only the first watertight compartments would have been filled, not the excessive amount that led to its aquatic demise.

there was a study done by the university of georgia psychology department in which they quizzed heterosexual men on their "attitude toward gays." they then forced these men to watch pornographic images (both gay and straight) on a video screen, while sensors were connected to their penis to detect arousal.

the men who were not homophobic and had no opinion or bias one way or the other only displayed sexual arousal toward the porno with women. The guys who had responded that homosexuality was un-natural and disgusting showed a slight arousal when the gay pornographic images were shown (as well as the heterosexual porn). homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies.
