This is a Reddit AMA with a 19-year-old sex addict. If you thought your life was dirty/interesting/completely fucked-up, you can take comfort in the fact that, compared to this girl, you’re 100 percent vanilla.
I’ve done a lot. Group sex (10+), extreme exhibitionism at parties or in public, I’ve dabbled in prostitution for people I trust (men and women). One of my favs is when I got a few friends to keep an eye on me at a party, then intentionally drank myself unconscious. They spread the word that there was a passed out girl available for a free fuck. They snapped pics of me all night, then I got to see it the next day. I found the whole thing incredibly sexy. There was a line up of guys fucking and cumming on me and a couple girls got in on it too. They were taking requests/dares for what to do to me, basically for the guys. Fun stuff.
I found myself with a furry once. I had to politely decline. I’ve been asked to do some extreme bondage stuff but I’m not into that either. I wouldn’t do anything weird like with piss or shit either but I haven’t been asked.
The added pressure from authorities comes mere hours after the United States launched an investigation into whether Assange violated espionage laws by releasing hundreds of classified diplomatic cables through Wikileaks.
I have yet to fully digest the significance of Wikileaks’ actions. Yes, Wikileaks and Assange are punk rock as fuck. Through their release of the various top secret document caches, Wikileaks has given the biggest middle finger in history to pretty much every government in the world, the U.S. especially. And if Assange thinks he can get away with that forever, he’s purely mistaken. But he knows that.
Given this report, however, he seems to think himself invulnerable:
Friends said earlier that Assange was in a buoyant mood, however, despite the palpable fury emanating from Washington over the decision by WikiLeaks to start publishing more than a quarter of a million mainly classified US cables. He was said to be at a secret location somewhere outside London, along with fellow hackers and WikiLeaks enthusiasts.
Now that WikiLeaks has unveiled thousands of diplomatic cables, it’s time to ask what the fallout will be. Here are some possible outcomes, brought to you by commentators from Slate, ZDNet, and several others:
Julian Assange will be jailed, or even executed: WikiLeaks’ idiosyncratic Australian founder is the target of most critics’ ire over ‘cablegate’ and some warn he could soon be headed for jail — or worse. If the courts decide Assange leaked this information to deliberately cause harm to the U.S, he could be tried on espionage charges. The U.S. has demanded his passport be cancelled, and he is on Interpol’s most wanted list for allegations of rape in Sweden. Conservatives including Bill O’Reilly and Sarah Palin have called for him to be hunted down or executed. It’s not all bad for the Australian, though: Ecuador has offered him asylum.
Hillary Clinton will resign The Secretary of State is under fire after diplomatic cables suggested she had instructed U.S. officials to “spy” on the heads of the U.N. and diplomats from other nations. The controversy makes her position untenable, argues Jack Shafer at Slate. No-one will trust a State Department it thinks is spying on them, and Clinton will pay the price. “Diplomacy is about face, and the only way for other nations to save face will be to give them Clinton’s scalp.” Fortunately for Clinton, the scandal may be overshadowed by WikiLeaks’ other revelations, says David Corn at Politics Daily. “Given the ADD of the national media, she probably can survive the storm.”
Nick Denton's big new strategy for keeping Gawker Media in business
In new “manifesto" (see below) Gawker Media owner Nick Denton gives his troops the run-down on the company’s new media strategy. A good read for anyone interested in the future of online media.
The 2011 template represents the most significant change in the Gawker model since the launch of Gizmodo and Gawker in 2002. One could go further: it represents an evolution of the very blog form that has transformed online media over the last eight years. The internet, television and magazines are merging; and the optimal strategy will assemble the best from each medium.
You can already see 2011 layout on the beta versions of Gawker and other titles. The blog scroll, long the central element of the page, is shifted to the right column, still prominent but subordinate; that reverse-chronological listing of the latest stories goes from about two thirds of the active area of the front door down to one third; and only headlines are displayed.
Wikileaks’ release of these documents is most certainly not journalism. And “journalism” isn’t just summarizing information, as some believe.
By releasing these documents, Wikileaks has given the general public access to information to which they don’t usually have access. Thing is, most people — myself included — don’t know how to put this complex cache of information into a proper context. In other words, they don’t understand the “real world” impact of such a leak, or know how to place the information into a larger picture of the world.
It is the job of the journalist to write an article that puts this information into context, and frames it in a way that anyone can grasp the significance of the information to which they are now privy. That’s what good journalism can do; that’s the service it provides the people. Or, at least, that’s the service it’s supposed to provide.
Now, in this age where “truth” has acquired some sort of relativistic nature, and anyone can dismiss anything with simple yelps of “bias!” I’m guessing many would question that reporter’s facts and motives. They — whoever doesn’t like the picture painted by the facts in the reporter’s story — would say that he/she is leaving out key information in order to promote some agenda.
In other words, many people — even journalists — don’t trust journalism anymore, nor do they understand its purpose. And that makes total sense. At a time when journalism’s foundations have lost their balls and their professionalism, and when outlets like Fox News or bloggers like Michelle Malkin are placed under the journalism umbrella, it’s no wonder people are calling bullshit.
The failings of journalism, I believe, are also what have given Mr. Assange and Wikileaks such a heavy backing of support from the general public (or at least a lack of outrage, which is at least as valuable). People are relieved to get the truth, and to be able to look at that truth without it being subjected to the smeared miscoloration of opinion. If we had a journalism industry that actually worked, the actions of Wikileaks would have a far different tone.
The details are being kept under wraps until NASA’s 2 p.m. EST news conference on Thursday, but a brief press release from the government agency via PRNewswire reveals that the topic will be “an astrobiology finding that will impact the search for evidence of extraterrestrial life.”
Something “that will impact the search for extraterrestrial life.” Hmmm… That could mean anything. Hell, maybe they’re offering anyone who successfully finds such evidence a lifetime pass to Six Flags. Who knows? But Thursday now seems way cooler…
North Korea on Tuesday fired dozens of artillery shells at a South Korean island, setting buildings on fire and prompting a return fire by the South, Seoul’s military and media reports said.
Seoul’s YTN television quoted a witness as saying 60 to 70 houses were on fire after the shelling.
More from the Washington Post:
South Korea immediately responded with its own artillery barrage and put its fighter jets on high alert, bringing the two sides - which technically have remained in a state of war since the Korean armistice in 1953 - close to the brink of a major conflagration…
The North fired an estimated 200 artillery shells onto the island, and the South returned fire with about 80 shells from its own howitzers. The attack began just after 2:30 p.m…
The United States, Russia and China all called for a cessation of hostilities. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs, in a statement, said, “The United States strongly condemns this attack and calls on North Korea to halt its belligerent action and to fully abide by the terms of the armistice agreement.” The U.S. keeps tens of thousands of troops in South Korea to aid in its defense, and Gibbs said “the United States is firmly committed to the defense of our ally, the Republic of Korea, and to the maintenance of regional peace and stability.”
HAWTHORNE, Calif.—(BUSINESS WIRE)— OSI Systems, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIS), a vertically-integrated provider of specialized electronic products for critical applications in the Security and Healthcare industries, today announced that Deepak Chopra, Chairman and CEO, was selected to accompany US President, Barack Obama, to Mumbai and attended the US India Business Entrepreneurship meeting, which was held by the US India Business Council (US IBC).
OSI Systems receives a massive amount of business from the U.S. government, and supplies much of the security equipment currently being used by the TSA — including the Rapiscan Secure 1000 body scanners that have caused the recent uproar at airports across the country.
In September, the TSA awarded OSI with a $325 million “Indefinite Quantity” (INIQ) contract for Rapiscan 620DV AT x-ray scanners. This is the most lucrative deal they’ve made with the U.S. government in recent months, but far from the only one.
The Transportation Security Administration’s enhanced screening program is continuing to leave passengers upset, humiliated, or worse. Over the weekend, reports emerged of children and disabled passengers subjected to invasive pat-downs for refusing to step through a body scanner — and with millions of Americans preparing to fly home for Thanksgiving, many suspect things will only get worse. The TSA has addressed several of the alleged incidents on its blog, and continues to say that “only a small percentage” of passengers will end up receiving a pat-down. Here’s a sample of the most controversial incidents so far:
Pat-down leaves victim humiliated, urine-soaked Bladder cancer survivor Thomas D. “Tom” Sawyer claims an aggressive pat-down broke the seal on his urostomy bag, leaving him covered in urine.
Cancer survivor forced to show prosthetic breast Breast cancer survivor and flight attendant Cathy Bossi was allegedly forced to remove her prosthetic breast from her blouse to show a TSA agent.
According to the National Ignition Facility (NIF) team in Livermore, on November 2 they fired up the 192 lasers beams at the centre of the reactor and aimed them at a glass target containing tritium and deuterium gas.
The resulting release of energy was of a magnitude of 1.3 million mega joules, which was a world record and the peak radiation temperature measure at the core was approximately six million degrees Fahrenheit.
For a direct comparison, the temperature at the centre of the sun is 27 million degrees Fahrenheit.
The current cosmological census is that the universe began 13.7 billion years ago with the Big Bang. But a legendary physicist says he’s found the first evidence of an eternal, cyclic cosmos.
The Big Bang model holds that everything that now comprises the universe was once concentrated in a single point of near-infinite density. Before this singularity exploded and the universe began, there was absolutely nothing - indeed, it’s not clear whether one can even use the term “before” in reference to a pre-Big-Bang cosmos, as time itself may not have existed yet. In the current model, the universe began with the Big Bang, underwent cosmic inflation for a fraction of a second, then settled into the much more gradual expansion that is still going on, and likely will end with the universe as an infinitely expanded, featureless cosmos.
A U.S. senator has vowed to fight attempts to pass a controversial copyright protection bill that would allow the U.S. government to shut down websites suspected of hosting infringing materials.
Senator Ron Wyden, an Oregon Democrat, said late Thursday that he would seek to block the Combating Online Infringement and Counterfeits Act, or COICA, from passing through the full Senate, unless the legislation is changed. Earlier Thursday, the Senate Judiciary Committee voted 19-0 to approve the bill and send it to the full Senate
Afghans in two crucial southern provinces are almost completely unaware of the September 11 attacks on the United States and don’t know they precipitated the foreign intervention now in its 10th year, a new report showed on Friday…
The report by The International Council on Security and Development (ICOS) policy think-tank showed 92 percent of 1,000 Afghan men surveyed in Helmand and Kandahar know nothing of the hijacked airliner attacks on U.S. targets in 2001.
Just imagine yourself in their bloody shoes: Not only did they kill your son, flatten your home and ruin your way of life. But you have no idea why.
And we wonder why we have enemies… *hangs head and sighs*
Something tells me this isn’t going to go over well in the U.S. But after reading this, I wonder if we shouldn’t all — men and women — take a “lesser” role, and relax a little bit. Life’s too short, as they say.
“Israelis, unlike Canadians and Americans, don’t take s—- from anybody. When the security agency in Israel (the ISA) started to tighten security and we had to wait in line for — not for hours — but 30 or 40 minutes, all hell broke loose here. We said, ‘We’re not going to do this. You’re going to find a way that will take care of security without touching the efficiency of the airport.”—
Two scientists are suggesting that colonization of the red planet could happen faster and more economically if astronauts behaved like the first settlers to come to North America — not expecting to go home.
"This is premature," Ed Mitchell of Apollo 14 wrote in an e-mail. "We aren’t ready for this yet." …
"We want our people back," NASA spokesman Michael Braukus said
That, however, doesn’t mean it can’t still happen, I guess…
”What we would need is an eccentric billionaire,” Schulze-Makuch said. “There are people who have the money to put this into reality.”
But considering that the Beatles annoy the shit out of me, I’m one of the few (many?) who couldn’t care less. This post is for those of you who do…
From The New York Times:
Apple is expected on Tuesday to announce that it has finally struck a deal with the Beatles, the best-selling music group of all time, and the band’s record company, EMI, to sell the band’s music on iTunes, according to a person with knowledge of the private deal who requested anonymity because the agreement was still confidential.
Depending on the terms of the deal, customers for the first time will be able to buy “Please Please Me,” “Hey Jude” or “A Day in the Life” online rather than on a CD and perhaps even as individual tracks. While the move to digital does not quite rival the band’s first trip across the Atlantic to appear on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1964, it is an acknowledgment that online purchases dominate the music industry’s sales strategy.
