This is awesome. A male constant on American Idol is taking pictures of himself kissing other guys and then posting it on the Interweb. Nice pics.  ;-)

Scientists figure out the root cause of grey hair
. Now all they need to do is to figure how to stop it! Mom'll love that since she's a hairdresser and relies on dyes to color hair and to make a living.  :-) 

Oooh, free sci-fi and fantasy ebooks here: suvudu free library

This caught my attention since when I was younger I read this books as if they were going out of style: Harlequin celebrates 60th b-day by giving away for free 16 ebooks ($60 value). Ah, the memories. I still love you Anne Stuart with your fabulous writing (definitely a cut above the usual romantic novel dreck). I downloaded a couple of them (vampires/witches) and boy, I can say the download interface is frustrating and slow but it does work.

Oooooooh, finally, a post I can link to whenever someone goes off the deep end and says gays molest children! Are Gays A Threat to Our Children? Answer, hell no! Sexual orientation does not equal child molestation.

OMG, really?! Talk about a bitter divorce! A couple is divorcing, the husband, a medical doctor, is suing his wife to get his kidney back! Uh, I have no words. He gave his wife one of his kidneys 5(?) years ago and now he wants it back?! This is a joke, right?????
I just can't believe this. What an asshole.

If you're a fan of Oprah or Suze Orman (the finance woman), they are promoting Orman's new book. You can download it free for a week--it's an action plan to whip your finances into shape.

LOL. I feel so sorry for this skier--it would piss me off to have these pictures on the Internet and to have this happen to me. But it's funny as hell too! :-P  Evidently, the ski chair didn't open correctly and it dragged his pants down exposing him to everyone around him while he's hanging upside down!!! Yikes! Many people took pics of his naked butt!!!!! LOL!!!!

I haven't really played with this yet (downloaded it basically) but I'm going to. It's a free download of a word processing program for writers. yWriter is by a professional author who also writes programs. I've not read his books yet but I plan on giving them a try (he has free ebooks available) (more info quick start guide here ). If you have a Mac (not me--the few times I've tried one I've gotten so frustrated), then Scrivener might be up your alley (I must admit program envy--I like the sound/description of this program--wish they had a Windows version).

Ebooks: The appeal of.......... )

If you like ebooks, Fictionwise has free ebooks available and something called micropay--buy select titles and it gives you a rebate on a portion of the price (up to 100%) to your account so that you can apply the rebate to other purchases. Hmm. I'm not sure I like the website though or their policies. Also, if you have trouble with your book download, you may be out of luck. [livejournal.com profile] kaigou had trouble with them and their customer service. Have not dealt with them myself.

Loose Id is an ebook publisher. It looks to be like Ellora's Cave and Torquere Books--all 3 are erotic(a) ebook publishers. If you're into reading these books, I understand the appeal of ebooks--easier to hide from prying eyes than physical books.  ;-)

This actually sounds awesome! The ability to print out for $10 a copy of a book in the public domain. I'm not much of a fan of e-books. At large of the reason that I'm not a fan of e-books is because they're not easily portable (no PDA, only a laptop) and because I'll lack the ability to actually read them in a few years time whereas I'll still have the ability to read my "old-fashioned" printed books. I.e., technology advances and what you can read/open today with your current software, you won't be able to access in a few years time. Yes, I have books from my childhood that I've kept and read. Same for teen years and now adult years. I'm told I could open up my own library. I don't actually consider books to be disposable the way many people do. I either trade them, own them, donate them to the library, etc. rather than actually throw them in the recycle or trash bin. That physically hurts me unless the item is damaged (dog chewed it up, kid puked on it, etc.).
