A group of scientists decided to test 57 different beverages to figure out which ones would help cure a hangover the most. They ranged from herbal tea infusions to carbonated beverages, and the conclusion is that the best thing you can drink the morning after is Sprite.
According to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, the state would be harmed if a ruling allowing marriages to begin October 21 isn’t stayed because it “make it difficult for the state’s top court to reverse course should it agree with the Christie administration’s anti-gay marriage stand.”
Meanwhile, testing the idea that knowing gay people makes you more likely to support marriage equality, Christie says “I have relatives who are gay. I have friends who are gay. I can sit down and have a conversation, but I don’t think it’s going to change my view.”
Misha Collins says that Castiel is going to have all sorts of problems on earth without his powers. He has to learn how to eat, how to pee, and even how to sleep. As for the opposite sex, “Cas definitely dabbles in that realm. It doesn’t go as well as it could for him, but it doesn’t go as badly as it could either. I don’t know – it does kind of go pretty badly. That’s yet another aspect of the human condition that’s new to him that he has to figure out how to do.”
The Guardian is reporting that Russia has set up an unprecedented infrastructure to spy on attendees to the Sochi Winter Olympics that will effectively allow them to listen in on all calls emails, tweets and any other form of communication. So in other words, they hired the NSA.
Scientists at the National Ignition Facility haven’t invented self-sustaining fusion yet, but for the first time a reaction they set off with a giant laser produced more energy than it put into the reaction. Definitely a step in the right direction.
Daniel Radcliffe doesn’t think his fans will be put off by the gay sex scene in Kill Your Darlings. “I do feel like going back to all those people, and being like, ‘Why weren’t you more shocked about the sort of sexual religious worship of a horse that my character has in that?’ If they stuck with me through Equus, they’re not gonna find a problem with this. And if they are, they’re a really weird type of bigot. If they’re like, ‘No, a horse is fine, but gay people I can’t stand.’”
Guess what? Pedophile priests are caused by divorced parents! “Many of these cases of (sexual) molestation could be avoided given a healthy relationship between parents. We often hear that this inappropriate attitude (pedophilia), or abuse, manifests itself when a child is looking for love. It (the child) clings, it searches. It gets lost itself and then draws another person into this. How many wounds are their in children’s hearts, in children’s lives, when their parents go their separate ways?” I guess that also makes it the child’s fault, too.
Fred Karger is demanding that the feds investigate Brian Brown’s role in Russia passing the laws banning adoption by gay couples. The basis is the old Logan Act, which makes it a felony for “for a citizen to confer with foreign governments against the interests of the United States.”
Rupert Grint didn’t mind dropping trou for CBGB, and he got to wear the little modesty sock in the scene, but he says Justin Bartha had a much rougher time for his bare scene. “That was quite fun. I didn’t really think about it until I had to do it, but it was kind of quite a tricky process. I think in the end, we needed a sock contraption. [Laughs.] So that kind of worked. That was the first time I had ever done anything like that. Justin Bartha had to do a lot more, actually. He had to get his waxed. So there was a lot of preparation there. Luckily, I don’t have that issue.” So now we know Justin Bartha has a naturally hairy ass.
Has anyone checked to see if hell has frozen over? The Daily Mail has actually apologized for saying the Prime Minister David Cameron wished he hadn’t championed marriage equality.
Based on the news that Kuwait and the other GCC states will begin testing foreign men to see if they’re gay to enter the country, Peter Thatchell says that FIFA has no choice but to remove the World Cup from the country. “The proposal that this gay ban will apply across all Gulf Cooperation Countries will mean that gay players and spectators will be banned from attending the football world cup in Qatar in 2022. This contradicts previous assurances given to FIFA by the Qatar government that everyone will be welcome and that there will be no discrimination. FIFA now has no option but to cancel the world cup in Qatar. Allowing it to go head in these circumstances would involve FIFA colluding with homophobic discrimination.”
