Horny Goat Weed may offer Viagra alternative
LONDON (Reuters) – A Chinese herbal remedy called horny goat weed is a promising alternative to Viagra for impotent men, Italian researchers said on Monday.
The herb has long held a reputation as a natural aphrodisiac. The lab experiments, which did not look at whether the plant actually increases desire, could lead to new drugs to help men get erections, said Mario Dell’Agli, a researcher at the University of Milan, who led the study.
WTF is wrong with these people! If you have a problem with handling alcohol, don’t work for a place that requires it! If you’re an albino, don’t work at the beach as a lifeguard! If you are a stupid idiot, don’t work where you have to be smart! God! This is just insane!
ENGLAND — A Muslim man is suing a British supermarket for religious discrimination after the store allegedly made him carry alcohol despite the fact that doing so is against his religion, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reported Monday.
Mohammed Ahmed, 32, told an employment tribunal that he was forced to leave his job after eight months because handling alcoholic beverages violates his Islamic beliefs and that he was “victimized” when he asked the Tesco grocery store for a different job, the paper reported.
The thing is, this person should not even be given the time of day. They should simply say do the job or quit the job. This is what the job requires. If you can’t do it, leave.

Background: I grew up in a little hick mountain town in Kentucky. Take every predisposition and stereotype you have ever known about southern mountain folks and you have the place I grew up in. White. So white. So racist. So homophobic. Imagine KKK with a strong dash of Fred Phelps thrown in. I shit you not. As a matter of fact, a lady died last year after being bit by a rattlesnake while handling them in the name of Jeebus…seriously.
Anyway. There is a public forums for the place. I find immense satisfaction of going in on a regular basis and harrassing them for their spelling, grammar, lack of teeth, telephone pole like family trees, and just basic stupidity. (more…)
APARTMENT FOR RENT
A businessman met a beautiful girl and agreed to spend the night with her for $500. They did their thing, and, before he left, he told her that he did not have any cash with him, but he would have his secretary write a check and mail it to her, calling the payment ‘RENT FOR APARTMENT.’ On the way to the office, he regretted what he had done, realizing that the whole event had not been worth the price. So he had his secretary send a cheque for $250 and enclose the following typed note:
‘Dear Madam: Enclosed find a cheque for $250 for rent of your apartment. I am not sending the amount agreed upon, because when I rented the place, I was under the impression that: #1 – it had never been occupied; #2 – there was plenty of heat; and #3 – it was small enough to make me feel cozy and at home. However, I found out that: #1 – it had been previously occupied, #2 – there wasn’t any heat, and #3 – it was entirely too large.’ Upon receipt of the note, the girl immediately returned the check for $250 with the following note:

There’s this odd belief among some bloggers that defamation and libel laws don’t actually apply to bloggers. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. Some of the confusion may stem from court rulings about comment liability, suggesting that a blogger is not liable for defamatory statements made by others in their comments. Unfortunately, many have taken this to mean that there is no liability for blogging defamatory statements. Others believe that since it’s their personal blog, they can say what they want and there shouldn’t be any liability, because it’s not like a newspaper. While I tend to think the entire concept of defamation laws should be rethought in an era when everyone is a publisher, that doesn’t change the fact that they do exist and they do apply to bloggers. At least, that’s what one set of bloggers is finding out after a court refused to dismiss a defamation suit against them, when the bloggers insisted their statements weren’t defamatory because they were just their opinions. But the claim was pretty seriously undermined by the fact that many of the potentially defamatory statements weren’t just made as statements of fact, but were posted on a blog that exclaimed across the site: “OUR STORIES ARE TRUE.” Oops.
