Advertising - Know When to Draw the Line

Sunday, July 22, 2007 by M.

It's always a challenge to separate yourself in advertising and be able to rise above the clutter. Depending on the size of the city you live in, you're likely to be exposed to hundreds or thousands of ads per day. That's TV, print, outdoor, even product placement, and other forms that you might not even notice.

A controversial and amusing ad from Sisley about fashion addicted women which uses dresses to symbolise drugs was able to break through the clutter, but isn't it at a price? It almost glamorizes a lifestyle that doesn't deserve any kind of praise.

Your favorite Color vs. Your Sex Style

Wednesday, July 11, 2007 by Eric J.

Nerdy professors at Harvard have been doing studies on color and a persons sex style... Well. not really, but somebody you can be sure has. And if they are busy enough to take time to even put this crap together, you can pretty much be sure that they are not getting any and won't be anytime soon!

RED: People who like red tend to be tigers in the sack. They are easily aroused and enjoy sex in every way imaginable!

YELLOW: If you tend to favor yellow, your sexual drives are complex and turn toward the adaptable. The favorite color of homosexuals is yellow. But not everyone who wears yellow is gay.

PINK: Persons who like pink show a reluctance to mature in sexual matters. Women tend to tease, to promise more than they intend to deliver. Men are the philanderers and flirts.

PURPLE: Lovers of purple frequently consider themselves to be too sophisticated for a fun romp in the sack. Women hate to mess their hair, while men are businesslike with their sexual approach.

BLACK: These people are the misfits of the sex world and seek out each other in kinship. They tend to prefer perverted sex and are usually masochistic or sadistic in nature. They are moody people.

GREEN: Those who prefer green are fresh and innocent in their approach to sex. Women who love green make love like virgins and men will be clumsy and awkward. Screw green M&M's...

ORANGE: Lovers of the color orange lean toward sexual fantasies. The sex act is regarded as a dramatic one-act play in which they are the star. Men pull their partner's hair and women leave welts on their partner's back.

BROWN: Brown lovers tend to be warm and deep, sensitive to the needs and desires of their partners. Sex is a 24 hour a day thing. Snuggling by the fire, walking in the rain or catching snowflakes on their tongue.

GRAY: The color gray is preferred by people who are indecisive. They can't get excited about anything. Men who prefer gray look at sex as a wham, bam, thank you ma'am. Women don't make love, they have intercourse.

BLUE: Lovers of blue are wonderful sex partners. They are sinners, affectionate and sensitive to their partner's needs. They consider love making a fine art and their approach is elegant. Men who love blue are like concert pianists and women enjoy sex to the fullest.

WHITE: If a person is infatuated with white, sex often seems filthy. These people are puritanical in nature. French kissing is obscene and to make love in the daylight in unheard of.

Boy Saves Family from Rabid Fox

Thursday, July 5, 2007 by BriK

A 5-year-old boy grabbed a rabid fox by the neck and pinned it to the ground during a family BBQ, protecting six other children until his stepfather could intervene.
Rayshun McDowell was bit in the leg, but the 61-pound-boy held the animal down for more than a minute. Test results confirmed the fox had rabies, which is fatal unless treated before symptoms appear. Rayshun is undergoing treatment.
Rayshun's stepfather, Ryan Thompson, pulled the boy off the animal and kicked it. Thompson, wearing a cast because of a broken leg, said he used a stick and his crutch to beat the fox to death.
Rayshun, meanwhile, asked only for a Band-Aid and didn't complain of any pain.
"Rayshun was really calm and wasn't upset," his mother said. "I couldn't believe he would do something like that. He was so brave, and I was a wreck."
Rabies attacks the nervous system and is transmitted through saliva. It often makes animals aggressive. A 6-year-old girl who was attacked by a fox the same day at her home nearby is also undergoing treatment.

Christina Aguilera & Nicole Richie are Preggers

by BriK

E! News confirmed Tuesday that the five-time Grammy winner, Christina Aguilera, and hubby, Jordan Bratman, are expecting their first child together. This will be baby number one for both.

Nicole Richie has been dating Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden for more than six months. Rumors have been swirling lately that Richie and Madden were expecting, but TMZ has confirmed through several sources that she is, in fact, with child. In Touch magazine is also reporting that the couple will wed this summer. Nicole is currently facing DUI charges stemming from her arrest last December, when she was found driving the wrong way on a California highway. Richie's trial is set for July 11. She faces a minimum of five days in jail, if convicted.

The McReligions - Supersized

Wednesday, July 4, 2007 by M.

All seeking salvation say 'aye'.
Behold, a list of some of the strangest religions.

The Reformed Druids of North America:
A bona fide religion that started out as a joke when some college students didn't want to attend required chapel services in college.

The Hare Krishna Home Page:
The religion for people who are into yellow, look like Yul Brynner, and annoy you at the airport.

Heaven's Gate:
Remember those wild and crazy Trekkies who offed themselves so they could ride on a UFO travelling in the tail of the Hale-Bopp comet and achieve eternal grokness?
Looks like no one is left to update the site after the last metting. Last update = 10/13/97

Jews for Jesus:
Wait a minute - how you can combine these two religions, one of which is waiting for Jesus to come, and the other of which is waiting for him to come again, but these folks seem to think they know what they're doing.

Jews For Allah:
If you thought Jews for Jesus was weird, wait'll you check out Jews for Allah!

Jediism - The Jedi Religion:
This one is questionable, but then aren't most of these...?

The Cult of Cthulhu:
Brought to you by Reverend H.P. Lovecraft?

The Universal Life Church:
Become an officially-ordained minister! I did! If you've never heard of the ULC, this is a bona fide religion and you can become one of their ministers on-line, which will give you the legal right to put "Reverend" before your name. The only qualification you must have is a pulse.

But the winner would have to be Scientology. Although the Raelians take honorable mention!

Read a great post on Scientology attempting to explain what its about.

A Couple of Answers

Monday, July 2, 2007 by M.

Surfing around the web, I found the answers to a couple things I've always wondered about, like
why poor countries are poor, and why do we yawn? As for yawning, there are several theories, but new research suggests it cools the brain, which is more alert. Hmmmm.
