California passes bill mandating condom use in porn

Even though the American porn industry prides itself on being incredibly safe, with all professional actors required to get monthly full panel STD tests, several big scares have temporarily shut down the industry over the past few years. With data showing that despite these self-imposed industry checks, porn actors are 10 times as likely as the general population to contract HIV, California recently passed a bill making condom use mandatory and setting monthly health screenings in stone.

At 79 years old, Charles Manson may have finally found the love of his life

Charles Manson has spent only two decades of his life as a free man. The rest of it has been behind bars, where he’s gained a reputation as the craziest motherfucker on the planet. But Manson is an old man now, and one day he’ll die in Corcoran prison where he’s spent most of his days. In the meantime, he’s come to know and meet and love a 25 year old woman he calls Star, a woman who loves him and visits him in prison for up to five hours a day, a woman who carved a permanent X in her forehead to match his. Aw, love is grand.

New California law may force porn stars to wear protective eye gear while filming hardcore sex scenes

Well, someone with a very specific fetish is about to be incredibly happy.

"The latest version of a California worker safety bill may require adult film actors to wear items like protective goggles while filming sex scenes, Salon reports. An updated draft of Bill AB 640 would not only prohibit state-wide performers from ejaculating onto the genitals, mouth or eyes, but require employers to provide "barrier protection" eyewear as well."

Woman gets the world’s first traffic ticket for driving while wearing Google Glass

Last week, Cecilia Abadie made history when she was pulled over for speeding by a California highway patrolman and ended up getting the world’s first ticket for wearing Google Glass while driving. The ticket doesn’t single out Google Glass specifically, but California is one of several US states that do have laws prohibiting video display screens from being visible to a driver, excluding GPS navigation. Abadie says the Glass wasn’t on, and in court, it’s going to be impossible to prove whether it was on or off or if it was on, whether she was using Google Maps… but congratulations Cecilia, you’re a trailblazer.

America’s first toilet themed restaurant opens appropriately in Los Angeles

Possibly one of the more disturbing trends to come out of Taiwan, the bathroom theme restaurant, has finally come state side with the opening of the new eatery, “Magic Restroom”. Menu items include such treats as “Black Poop”, “Constipation”, and my personal favorite, “Bloody Number Two”.

California seventh grader launches Hello Kitty into space. Suck on that, North Korea

Lauren Rojas, a 12-year-old from Antioch, Calif., got the idea after seeing a television commercial in which a balloon was launched into the sky. She thought she could do the same with her Hello Kitty doll. She would test air pressure and temperature at high altitude for her school’s science fair.

Lauren and her father mounted small video cameras on their rocket-shaped gondola to record Hello Kitty’s journey. The balloon reached an altitude of 93,625 feet (17.73 miles), Rojas said. There, the air was so thin that the balloon burst, sending Hello Kitty from the sky. It landed in a tree 47 miles from the launch sight, according to Rojas.
