You are going to save the world, Whittle! Whether you like it or not.

An honest to god Rachel Lucas sighting? And a recent post by Bill Whittle? Crikey, it's like getting actual footage of Bigfoot playing badmitton with the Loch Ness Monster, although I'm fairly certain that neither critter possesses either Rachel's big smile or her incredible ability to use "asshat" as a a noun, adjective and a verb, all in the same sentence.
Yes Rachel, some of us still miss your blogging. A lot. Hopefully you're busy creating lots of little Republican voters.

Anyway, recently my life was made an awful lot easier by those clever techno wizards at howtobewebsmart.com . They've come up with a cool Firefox Toolbar gadget that allows you to search for prices on 4 well-known sites at the same time. That's right. One search does it all.
"What are the four sites?" I hear you ask. Well, they're small. Tiny. Ebay, Amazon, Shopping.com and Shopzilla.com. I'm sure you may have at least heard of them, they've been around a while.
Saddle up and get shopping. Or buying, if you're a guy.

A Dutch escort agency is launching a special virgin service for computer geeks.
Sociology student Zoe Vialet, who set up Society Service last year, says she has had a lot of demand from virgins.
She says most of them work in the IT sector and added: "They are very sweet but are afraid of seeking contact with other people. They mean it very well but are very scared.
"Every booking lasts three hours minimum. Longer is possible, shorter not. We take the time to take a bath together, do a massage and explore each others body.
"When the date is over, you will have had a fantastic experience, and you will be able to pleasure a woman."
Zoe and her colleague Marieke have specially trained five girls to look after the needs of virgins, reports De Telegraaf.
She added: "You better practise before having a girlfriend. Woman expect men older than 30 having had some experience.
"Some men need a little bit of help. But it makes them happy and they are glowing .There is nothing more terrible than dying as a virgin."
Oh really? What about a 20-sided die that consistently rolls a "1"? Because let's face it, the losers using this service are far more likely to actually hold a painted plastic polyhedron than the actually feel touch of a woman without paying for it.

Just try this...............
This will boggle your mind and you will keep trying over and over again to see if you can outsmart your foot, but you can't. It's preprogrammed in your brain!
1. WITHOUT anyone watching you (they will think you are GOOFY......) and while sitting where you are at your desk in front of your computer, lift your right foot off the floor and make clockwise circles.
2. Now, while doing this, draw the number "6" in the air with your right hand.
Your foot will change direction.
I told you so! And there's nothing you can do about it!
You and I both know how stupid it is, but before the day is done you are going to try it again, if you've not already done so.

I want to start with a basic premise: When your first child is born, your life stops being about what you want and starts being about what they need. If you disagree, then you can stop reading now. The rest of what I say will only make sense to those who understand that this is the foundation of fatherhood.
The problem, of course, is not with your kids but with your wife. You may be having a tough time in your marriage. You may be thinking that you no longer love or can live with your wife. You may believe that divorce is the only remaining option. I dont know your situation. I won't pretend to be able to understand what you are going through. I only know this: you're children need you at home. Your sons and your daughters need your presence. Real fathers dont leave their children
I'm fully aware of how unpopular such a claim will be. Our society tells us that you shouldn't "stay together just for the kids." Our culture tells us that progress has made fatherhood a vestigial artifact. Our hearts tell us that we deserve to pursue our own bliss.
Such an unpopular sentiment bears repeating: When your first child is born, you're life stops being about what you want and starts being about what they need. They need you at home. If you're a man and aspire to being a dad, that is all you need to know.
Every night before I go to sleep, I check in on each of my children. I usually give them a kiss, too. And I kiss them both before I leave for work each day. They're sort of fatherhood bookends to my days. I can't imagine going through days without them. If you can, in fact, imagine such a thing, I will posit that maybe. just maybe, you shouldn't have children.
Thanks to Vox for the link.

Scientists say they have successfully made immature sperm cells from human bone marrow samples.
If these can be grown into fully developed sperm, which the researchers hope to do within five years, they may be useful in fertility treatments.
It seems fitting somehow that this headline appeared on Friday the 13th.
