And while CNN is showing this irrelevant news, I’m sure the Daily Show will have some actual news. Damn it’s sad what the news has become.

I think he pretty much sums up what is going on here in the new media age of the 21 Century.  While this comment got 63 positive comment diggs (the top voted comment got491 so far, I feel that it is actually the best comment for the story posted.

Lysol for Feminine Hygiene « The Chawed Rosin

Lysol for Feminine Hygiene « The Chawed Rosin

You know people seem to always say it was better back in the days. They will say something like, “In my day we didn’t have to lock our doors” or  “We had more respect for our elders”… you know; the usual ‘things were better-slash-if only we could turn back the hands of time’ type of sayings.

Well…

Major Mistakes Women Make In Bed

Digg made history today… I actually saw women post more than once in the comment area! Na, just kidding ya. This little article brought out the battle of the sexes in the comments. The first 2 comments (or I should say the ‘digg reply’ (more on the Digg Reply later…) basically goes at each other. We haven’t even got to the other 200+ posts!!!

Digg link pick quote:

Akon Axed by Verizon Over Simulated Rape – TMZ.com

Akon Axed by Verizon Over Simulated Rape – TMZ.com

This was a very mind grabbing topic for many on entertainment and gossip blogs for a few weeks now. Now it seems that Verizon has had enough and dropped him. Is this about Don Imus?

You hd to know that what Don Imus said would be mentioned somewhere in the blog post comments.

Yup.

Sandra Rose: Fan Mail: Olivia Moves On

Sandra Rose: Fan Mail: Olivia Moves On

I can’t say I was a fan of hers. She honestly seemed like a add on that many Hip Hop and rap groups seem to do. Get the “first lady” of the group to round out the musical offerings.

This group has a first lady, that group has a “first lady”… for example: Bad Boy had Faith Evans, and DTP (Disturbing The Peace) had Shawnna (I think both left their respective groups). Other Hip Hop (or more specifically Rap) groups or labels have their “first lady” as well and so the fad was started.

With Olivia, she never seemed to fit in to me. I remember one behind the scenes report where she said that she basically has her own tour bus beecause she isn’t into the “puff – puff pass” and smokey rooms. Whaaaa?????

No suprise there are rumors of 50 pushing up on her and trying to harrass. I wasn’t there soooo… but doesn’t it fit his character profile?

Anyway, she has left the building. She says she won’t be filing any charges… how would she really prove her case anyway???… and is starting her own label.

As  popular as this blog site is, there are only 12 comments on this story.

Here are some of the comments on the blog post:

Davina said…
wow that publicist or whatever just very casually said that she was “sexually harassed on occasions” like it was no big deal. Apparently it’s not a big deal to Olivia either, otherwise she’d had him charged, right? WTF…

tbrown said… Wow. A lingerie and fragrance line through Victoria’s Secretions? LOL. Way to go! How the hell did she ‘do’ it? Touring Brazil?

I remember her from way back when…I forget that song she had, but I liked it. I’m glad she’s getting on about her business. When I first read/heard/saw that she’d signed with GUnit, I kinda shook my head. These labels are so copycat-like lately. You have a primary rap artist, then lesser solo rap artists underneath, and then a chica who sings the hook (or guest raps) on everybody’s album, and if she’s lucky, she’ll get her own record which may/may not sell… (con’t)

SANDRA, I HAVE TO KEEP IT REAL WITH YOU. FIRST, YOU ARE COVERING MONICA A LITTLE TOO MUCH. SHE’S COOL BUT..HOW CAN I PUT IT GENTLY…IT’S NOT WHATS POPPIN RIGHT NOW. I LIKE TO GO IN AND READ COMMENTS ON DIFFERENT GOSSIP WEBSITES, AND I THINK YOU ARE TRYING TO MICRO-MANAGE COMMENTS A LITTLE TOO MUCH. GOSSIP IS ABOUT SAYING WHATEVER YOU WANT TO SAY (IM ONLY POSTING THIS HERE BECAUSE YOU CAN’T POST UNDER THE MONICA COMMENTS). I FELT IT WAS IMPORTANT TO SAY THIS BECAUSE YAHOO RECENTLY NAMED THE TOP 10 GOSSIP WEBSITES (A FEW WERE BLACK OWNED), AND YOURS WAS NOT LISTED. I USED TO BE A BIG FAN OF YOUR WEBSITE, AND I FIND MYSLEF NOT VISITING AS MUCH. I SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO IN A COMMENT LOG AND SAY WHATEVER I WANT TO SAY (AS LONG AS THERE IS NO PROFANITY). I WON’T NAME ANY NAMES, BUT THE MOST POPULAR GOSSIP SITE ON THE WEB BELIEVES IN FREEDOM OF SPEECH. YOU SEEM TO HAVE BEEN DOING OK WITH YOUR SITE, BUT YOU ARE BEGINNING TO BECOME OVERSHADOWED BY THE COMPETITION.

OF COURSE, THIS IS ONLY AN OPINION

 Some interesting opinions. I like the “whateva” comment. Straight and to the point. You know how this persoon feelsabout the subject.

» AKON NOT ONLY HUMPED A 14 YR. OLD…*UPDATE* » CONCRETELOOP.COM » WE GIVE YALL THE STYLE TO RUN WITH.

If you go to celebrity blogs, entertainment news site, and sites on child wellfare, you probably read something about this. Apparently a kid of 14 got into a concert, got on stage, and got felt up.

Worst, if there can be a worst, is that it was published on YouTube so that a few million others could see it all around the world. I wonder when she gets older will it be harder for her to get work? Employers are looking at the internet to find out who they are hiring. If stuff keeps getting posted on the internet at this rate, no one will be working.

The post on the blog link above got well over 300 comments. This blog post the actual video and pictures of the girl (who looks way older… or is at least dressed way older than she should be). at the club and then in normal clothes.

Most blame the girl, others blame the music, still some more blame Akon (the artist who held the humping contest).

Most intersting post:

Clearminded said:

Well, now see, I need more info. Did the girl have “14 year old” stamped across her forehead when she entered the club? She sure is dressed like a grown-ass woman, and she’s dropping it like it’s hot like a pro stripper. I mean this ain’t no R. Kelly situation where the dude was trolling inside a middle school.

And this is coming from someone who hates me some Akon and thought the whole humping thing was tasteless. However, that’s what goes on in many dancehalls.

It’s a interesting read… peoples opinions on this makes it more interesting.

emildew of Digg Says: This procedure is done in less than 1% of 1% of all abortions

On Digg: BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Procedure!!!

Featured Comment:

This procedure is done in less than 1% of 1% of all abortions. The only reason someone would have this done is to save the mother’s life (ie: she will actually DIE if she tries to continue the pregnancy) or because the life of the fetus would be so greatly affected by a birth defect of some kind that this is mercy. I’m talking about the kind of thing where the baby, if born, wouldn’t last an hour, or a day. Horrible deformities.

This is not a “method of birth control”. Doctors so rarely perform this procedure because it is hell on the mother, both mentally and physically.

@AlwaysDuggDown:
“the woman didn’t want to deal with a kid.”

How many children have you adopted? It isn’t just “dealing with a kid”. There are physical ramifications, and financial ones, and mental ones. I know women who I would really prefer not be mothers, and I know women who would die if they were to get pregnant and try to carry the baby to term.

Walk in someone else’s shoes, and don’t judge what you don’t know.

BREAKING: Supreme Court Backs Ban on Partial Birth Abortion Procedure!!!

Well this was the most under reported event due to the VT Massacre. Never the less it didn’t stop Digg and other sites to bring it up. And boy did they talk about what this means. 600+ comments on this item. Considering that there are only 1300+ votes on something that has 600+ comments, you know right away there was a debate going on in the comment section.

Digg link pick quote :

The Supreme Court upheld the nationwide ban on a controversial abortion procedure Wednesday. The 5-4 ruling said the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act that Congress passed and President Bush signed into law in 2003 does not violate a woman’s constitutional right to an abortion.

I just find this amazing and so did about 67 other people (yes that could be smaller considering the repeat posters). Now Kim Kardashian is the same person who hs the sex tape with brandy’s brother Ray-J. I just don’t see them just hanging out. Maybe its just me.

So, wanna guess what they talked about?

3D Medical Animation of Normal Vaginal Childbirth « Biosingularity

3D Medical Animation of Normal Vaginal Childbirth « Biosingularity

The quote says it all:

This fascinating 3D medical animation shows a time lapse view of labor and delivery during normal vaginal birth in a simplified form with only the mother’s skeletal structures and the baby in the uterus.

That was very… fascinating and disturbing at the same time. Maybe because I’m a guy? it looks incredible… and painful.
