We’ve all been there before. It’s 3 p.m. at the office, and you’re positively famished. The snack machine is empty, and the only piece of food in sight is a bagel hard enough to bust windshields. You’ve snapped three plastic butter knives trying to slice the thing in half, and there’s no way it will fit in the toaster whole. Then you remember the office lightsaber. Ten seconds later, you’re spreading cream cheese, and the low-blood-sugar monster has retreated.
Sometimes you hear on the news about weird medical conditions that actually cause more sex than normal. And when you hear about the poor dude whose condition caused him to have sex with 300 women you think, hell, how do I catch that shit? But these conditions are kind of like eating at Taco Bell. It may sound awesome in theory, but personal experience may leave you with internal bleeding. Commonly referred to as nymphomania by Internet perverts and perverts who still eschew technology but like the idea just the same; hypersexuality is what happens when your libido cranks the dial to 11 and leaves it there. Frat guys throughout history have fantasized about dating a "total nympho," thinking they'll wind up with a special lady friend with a sex drive that rivals a three dicked hummingbird on E.
Put your goddamn legs together . I know it is your goal to sit as parallel with the ground as you possibly can for the duration of class, and that your desk and its draconian insistence upon keeping you vertical is really harshing your slouch vibes. But could you please, for the sake of the person who has no choice but to look at you for the next fifty minutes, sit up and put your knees together? You’re not posing for a National Geographic spread: the art of picking up a mate in college has evolved (albeit barely) beyond presenting yourself to the available females in the classroom.

A natural phenomenon is a non-artificial event in the physical sense, and therefore not produced by humans, although it may affect humans. Common examples of natural phenomena include volcanic eruptions , weather, and decay. Most natural phenomena, such as rain, are relatively harmless so far as humans are concerned.
Unlike some (bald) people , we can’t all be at Comic-Con this year, soaking up our annual allotment of nerd sweat and “he’s-right-over-there!” celebrity sightings. As the nexus of almost al things nerd, The Con’s been a gracious host to an increasing video game presence in recent years. This year’s San Diego Comic-Con features more hands-on opportunities than ever, so if you’re one of the 100,000+ people expected to tromp through the convention center, here’s a list of what you should check out. The rest of us will just watch the videos and cry into our Captain America Coolattas…
Wanted: More judges like U.S. District Judge William Alsup. Alsup is presiding over the currently ongoing lawsuit between Google and Oracle over the former’s Android OS—which the latter says infringes on their Java patents—and is demonstrating a refreshing attitude towards both companies’ attempts to argue their case. Alsup told attorneys representing the corporations, “You’re both asking for the moon and you should be more reasonable” during a hearing yesterday, according to Reuters . Lawyers acting on behalf of Google argued that Oracle estimated damages of between $1.4 billion and $6.1 billion as a result of patent infringement within the Android OS and asked Alsup to disallow those estimates, saying instead that Oracle deserves no damages.
Ryan Gosling is not just a very attractive man, or a good actor. He is an attractive man who issues statements that include the sentence, "It's misogynistic in nature to try and control a woman's sexual presentation of self." Harvey Weinstein has said Gosling's movie with Michelle Williams, Blue Valentine , received an NC-17 rating because it contains a scene where Gosling's character performs oral sex on Williams'. The issue of ambiguously consensual sex has also been raised , although rape scenes have never been particularly problematic for Hollywood before. The filmmakers are appealing the rating, of which Gosling says,
(And Other Ideas To Avoid Being Treated Like a Criminal) As of July 2006, the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has sued over 20,000 music fans for file sharing in just under three years . In 2004, the Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) joined this misguided, anti-consumer crusade.
In video games, just like life, there's a certain percentage of people who just need a good punching. The percentage may even be higher in video games, if that's possible. What makes the offenders on this list even worse is that they reared their ugly heads in what are otherwise some of the best games ever made, making the whole experience just a little worse each time.

From Wired How-To Wiki A well-packed sack will save your back. Photo by The Glasshalffull via Flickr . It's happened to everyone before. You start out in the comfort of your living room, with a cavernous empty backpack and all your gear spread out before you.
The images you see on your monitor are made of tiny dots called pixels. At most common resolution settings, a screen displays over a million pixels, and the computer has to decide what to do with every one in order to create an image. To do this, it needs a translator -- something to take binary data from the CPU and turn it into a picture you can see. Unless a computer has graphics capability built into the motherboard , that translation takes place on the graphics card .
[ edit ] Dream stabilization Once you are able to dream lucidly, you may find that it is difficult to stay in the dream; for example, you may wake instantly or the dream may start “fading” which is characterized by loss or degradation of any of the senses, especially vision.

The way to check if you are dreaming is to look at any text or numbers around you (eg. a book, sign, clock face, etc), then look away for 5 seconds.
