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.
Yes, this is a real damn place, just outside Sonora, California, part of the New Melones reclamation area. New Melones. Glory Hole. People approved these names.
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.

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.
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”.
Daring diners should head to City of Industry (that’s right, in the middle of all the strip clubs).
A Californian man terrified DIY shoppers after brutally mutilating himself in the middle of the busy store. Prepare to wince.
