_Naughty Pixel's Accidental Video Game Porn Archive
From 8-bit classics to Metal Gear Solid 2, it's in there.
So to speak.
_How to tell when it's time to lighten up about your classes
During her first year at Princeton, says Pierce, “I stopped sleeping. I got so tired that I couldn’t eat any more. I was too exhausted to have the motivation to eat. I lived in the infirmary for quite a while. At the same time I was having trouble being with a roommate. I realized that I needed privacy if I was going to be able to work as hard as I wanted to.....right.... Good thing Mom was there to encourage balance in her life: “I’m not sure it’s really advisable to work as hard as she does.” Gee, there's no slipping anything past you, is there, Mom?
But everything is totally cleared up and healthy now: "Pierce is finally getting some rest in her senior year, sleeping about five hours a night." yeesh.
_How to tell when it's time to move to a new city
When you're so damned afraid of your neighbors that you only travel by helicopter between your walled fortress home, your walled off office and your machine-gun gaurded shopping center, it's time for a change.

_Butt cleavage fashion -- not just for plumbers anymore
A trend pointed to on these pages over a year ago, appreciatively. Have I mentioned (today) how happy I am that this look displaced the baggies?
_So that's what BSD has on Linux
That's Ceren Ercen, genuine geek babe.
Too. Many. Jokes . . . uptime, POST, rack mount, tail...
Update: That naughty girl's got more photos posted.
_Everything but the Gerbil
Talking to emergency room doctors to get the low down on people putting things down low.
In a 1986 Surgery magazine report, Drs. David B. Busch and James R. Starling tabulated the RFO's that had been referenced in scholarly works. They found 182 cases. According to their research, the most popular object to emerge was a bottle, cleaning up with thirty-three entries (one with attached rope). Running a respectable second were vibrators, at twenty-three mentions, followed by the vibrator's cousin, the dildo, with fifteen. The last object to achieve double-digit status was the stick/broom handle, with a perfect ten. The remaining melange included virtually everything except a rodent (the gerbil story, according to the journals, is, in fact, myth): a frozen pig's tail, a kangaroo tumor, pool cue ball, snuff box, and a variety of fruits and vegetables, including a plantain (with condom). Perhaps Mark Twain said it best: "Man is the only animal who blushes. Or needs to."The rules: the doctor will have to discover what's wrong because they will never tell you, it was always an accident, and they may very well flee as soon as the object is out.
_Japanese High School Prostitutes on the Prowl
This article makes it sound like Japanese high schoolers are jumping at the chance to sell sex, and they don't sound terribly worked up about it, either.
"These girls don't go to school and just hang around on the streets all day waiting for some guy to come along and pick them up. Some are pretty enough to be models and they know it. They're famous for milking customers dry ... when it comes to how much they expect to be paid for their services," the adult industry writer tells Shukan Taishu.It doesn't exactly sound innocent, but you start to think that maybe it's just different in a country that wasn't founded by Puritans... then you get to the part about grade schoolers getting into the act and it gets a lot harder to rationalize.

If that's photoshopped, then let my ignorance remain blissful.

_Tastes Like... Finger
A woman in northern Japan bit into a rice ball she bought at a convenience store and got a gruesome surprise: a fingertip.
_Seriously mean video out-takes
Orson Welles piss drunk and slurring his way through the filming of a wine ad, an incoherent Anna Nicole Smith, an unblinkingly merciless compendioum of the worst Star Search auditions, and video of pathetic group therapy breakdowns. Rarely does one page so completely synthesize everything right about the internet and wrong with humanity (including us viewers).
I think I need a shower.
_Don't eat -- live forever
Eat just enough to stave off starvation and you'll get years and years more time to torture yourself with hunger and chronic cold, when you're really old.
Is there a catch?
_Car wash style spray-on tan
''Assume the ballerina position,'' he says, making an oval with his arms above his head. He explains that the mister will mist for eight seconds, after which I should ''turn into Charlie's Angels.'' He demonstrates by jutting one foot in front of the other and holding his arms out straight as if gripping a revolver. Wait for the mist. Turn. Strike ballerina pose. Turn. Pretend you're Farrah Fawcett.Click through to find out how it went.
_Socks For The Well Heeled
Finally, you learn that the rich, having more possessions, require more
