College is expensive, and even more so if you want to go to an acclaimed private school like Duke University. One woman, with her family having undergone financial hardship, decided to go in to the porn industry to pay for her education. When a fraternity at Duke discovered her secret, they outed her to others on campus, and now this woman has gone (more or less) public with her story, and how she’s discovered how much she loves the porn industry. Wait, there’s a porn industry in Durham, NC?
At least that’s according to a poll of just under 850 tech professionals when asked if they would like to receive their paycheck in Bitcoins.

In a landmark, world changing decision, the Supreme Court of Canada struck down the pillar of anti-prostitution laws in the country, basically paving the way for decriminalized brothel prostitution. This allows for greater security and stability for sex workers, and a boon for tourism to Canada. As if their strip clubs weren’t awesome enough, now Canadian hookers. God bless you Canada.
New California law may force porn stars to wear protective eye gear while filming hardcore sex scenes

In order to understand how astronauts returning to Earth from a long space voyage would adjust, NASA is willing to fork out $18,000 to anyone who wants to stay in bed for 70 days straight. Sounds like an easy gig, but we’re talking about staying in bed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for 70 days. Just laying there, tilted up at a 6 degree angle for nearly 2 and a half months. You don’t get to leave to use the bathroom or eat or anything. Sure, there are worse jobs, but overall it sounds like a good way to go insane. Is there beer? And frequent sex? No? Fuuuuck.
Right now across the country, McDonald’s employees are protesting low wages and McDonald’s shitty “just get a second job” attitude. But if McDonald’s raised its wages to $15/hr as many are demanding, how would that affect the price of food? As it turns out, your Big Mac would only cost $0.68 more and everything on the Dollar Menu would cost 17 cents more. I think we as a people can deal.
