!! OMG, iPee: Scientists souping up your iPhone to detect STDs !!

mobilestd.jpg
Great news! Instead of having a doctor stick a q-tip up your urethra, you’ll soon be able to discover your STD status (or a partner’s, duh) simply by taking a leak all over your fancy iPhone! I mean, sort of :

Mobile phones and computers will soon be able to diagnose sexually transmitted diseases under innovative plans to cut the UK’s rising rate of herpes, chlamydia and gonorrhoea among young people…

People who suspect they have been infected will be able to put urine or saliva on to a computer chip about the size of a USB chip, plug it into their phone or computer and receive a diagnosis within minutes, telling them which, if any, sexually transmitted infection (STI) they have. Seven funders, including the Medical Research Council, have put £4m into developing the technology via a forum called the UK Clinical Research Collaboration.

Fun bonus game: what STD do you suppose the man in the above stock photo just discovered that he has?!

!! OMG, He’s Game : Luke Perry poses with fans at comic book convention !!

lukeperry1.jpg
So Luke Perry (aka my former future husband Dylan McKay) went to a comic book convention and boy does he have the pictures to prove it. The aging teenage rebel was kind enough to pose with all manner of fans for a series of intimate portraits like the one above. Ever the consumate professional, he manages to maintain his trademark (if dogeared) cool despite the utter insanity unfolding around him… and sometimes on top of him!
More of my favorites are after the jump.

!! OMG, A Pinch of Ginger: The angry redhead is now the Mad Hatter !!


Uh… kids today! Shit, this kind of thing makes me feel like my grandma. In my day we didn’t have vlogs, and if we had webcams they were used for sexual jerkoff purposes only. None of this dressing up as an Alice in Wonderland characters for no good reason nonsense!

!! OMG, How Educational: Oregon Trail, the Movie !!


Anyone who ever logged time in an elementary school classroom with one dusty Apple IIg (circa 1990!) in the back knows that there was only one joint worth firing up on that old thing. NO, NOT MATH BLASTER. The Oregon Trail, of course.
And while I’m sad to report that the above movie preview for the incredible looking Oregon Trail Movie is not for real, we can always wish…
