New Hampshire is about pass a bill allowing gay couples to seek civil unions, and ABC News was there to report.Â So was the dude they hired to make graphics for stories.Â Maybe its me, but that seems to be theÂ hand of a woman on top ofÂ a man’s hand.Â And though I’m sure they’re delighted to be wed, they’re not really what we call gay.Â True,Â the top hand with the little manicure and frilly white sleeve could belong to an exceedingly effeminate gay man, but why are you making this so hard, ABC News graphics guy?Â
Couldn’t you have gone with something more obviously gay like this?
Acclaimed physicist Stephen Hawking has become the first person with a disability to float in zero gravity. Yesterday he traveled in a modified jet that recreated the effect.
“It was amazing,” Hawking, paralyzed by a progressive neurological disorder, said afterward through an electronic device. “The zero-G part was wonderful and the full-G part was no problem. I could have gone on and on. Space, here I come.”
When told of Hawking’s successful excursion, Jordan Bratman (Christina Aguilera’s husband) told reporters, “I don’t get it. Why does he get to go into zero-gravity and not me? I know I married up big time, but come on! I can walk and talk. By my count that’s Bratman 2, Hawking 0. I mean, what the fuck?”
Science continues its quest to create the better backdoor fingerbang.

The airport has a voluntary curfew … whereby pilots are asked not to take off or land between the hours of 10pm and 6am. Airport manager Jeff Northgraves tells the publication, ‘Pilots have abided by that with one exception – Travolta. He has the loudest aircraft that we see here.’
Meanwhile, Travolta released the following statement: “I have honored the no flying curfew. I have no idea why loud noises are coming from my plane. Really! … Are you going to eat that Snickers?”
Okay. Here’s the book that wins the Oddest Title Ever award. Or at least The Dumbest Title I’ve Read Today Award. It’s called Life on Planet Rock: From Guns Nâ€™ Roses to Nirvana, a Backstage Journey Through Rockâ€™s Most Debauched Decade and it’s written by Lonn Friend.
1. From G ‘n’ R to Nirvana? Someone should tell this guy that a decade is more than two years.
2. I’m almost postive Lonn (pronounced “Lone”) Friend has a ponytail and never goes a day without dropping into conversation that he owns a Linkin Park album.
Now, conversely, the Best Title Ever Award (and I can assure you that being both the author of the winning book and the head of the awards committee in no way interferes with my ability to remain objective) goes to:
Among other things, it’s guaranteed to contain:
3. Five more years of history than Planet Rock, and eleventy-four percent more actual debauchery.
An Indian court has issued warrants for the arrests of stars Shilpa Shetty and Richard Gere after their on-stage embrace shocked millions in the conservative country. The court seeks to prosecute the Bollywood beauty and the Hollywood snooty for conduct which the judge described as “highly sexually erotic,” saying Gere and Shetty “transgressed all limits of vulgarity and have the tendency to corrupt the society.”
While we in the West may be tempted to view the warrants as the prudish overreaction of a backward nation, Junkiness has obtained the following footage of the embrace, which clearly shows just how far Gere crossed the line:
The star has pledged not to shave or wear clothes for the duration of her contract.
