Random Observations 2013.01.23

Still dealing with issues arising from the start of the new semester. meanwhile, from around the Web:

If this isn't the most idiotic idea to ever come out of Hollywood, it's definitely in contention for the Top 10.
Hollywood actor David Arquette said he would support President Barack Obama and Congress regulating the depiction of ammunition in Hollywood films.

“Hey, listen, if you want to restrict the amount of bullets that fit in a magazine and then restrict that also from being able to show that amount of bullets in a clip on a movie screen, I’m totally down with it. Go for it,” Arquette told TheDC on Inauguration Day.
First they go after the Second Amendment, then they take aim at the First. But the damn leftists are too stupid to make the connection. And I'm not referring to the magazine vs. clip nonsense spouted by that fool.

On a more pleasant topic, at the risk of providing you TMI I will simply note that one of my practices has been found to be beneficial.
A recent study showed that less than 10 percent of Americans sleep in the buff. Whaa? Not only is it dead sexy, experts swear naked sleep is actually good for you. We asked them to spill on the top reasons you should ditch those pajamas for good.

1. You'll Air Out Your Hoo-Ha

Okay, maybe not directly applicable to me, but the rest of the reasons are.

2. You'll Sleep Better

"Your body temp progressively declines as you sleep, which is a natural tendency of the body, so being too warm with heavy PJs and blankets can disrupt that." Sleeping naked, (says Lisa Shives, MD) says, can help your body stay cool.

3. You'll Look Hotter

"As your body temperature drops, growth hormone is released and works its regenerative magic," (naturopath Natasha Turner) says. And that keeps your skin and hair looking awesome.

 4. You'll Lose Belly Fat

Sleeping naked helps you sleep more soundly, which will allow your levels of the stress hormone cortisol to decrease as you rest, keeping your energy and hunger levels in check...

 5. You'll Feel More Confident

"We can tune in to sensations like the feeling of the sheets and the coolness of the air, which can be very sexy" ... "And feeling sexy increases confidence."

6. You'll Have Better Sex

... sleeping naked is great for your relationship because laying skin to skin will increase feel-good chemicals like the cuddle hormone oxytocin. "Sleeping naked encourages sexier relationships..."

On the other hand, proving that every silver lining has a cloud, there's this profoundly disturbing news.
A forthcoming erotic novel being described as “fan fiction” will feature the first couple as protagonists-in-chief. According to Pop Culture Public Relations, the firm representing the book’s publisher, the novel, a version of a “personalizable” erotic tome, will be printed with the first couple’s names in it and available online at no cost on January 28. In an e-mail circulated yesterday, Pop Culture PR wrote, “Barack and Michelle Obama Star in This Erotic, Romantic Novel.”

Surely American literature will reach new heights with the publication of GuestHouse Games, in which the Obamas, “alone in their isolated beachfront guesthouse in the tropical paradise of Kailua, Hawaii,” are “drawn into the ancient Hawaiian spiritual world and into the exploration of their own deepest and most forbidden desires.”
The mental images are seared into my brain. It burns, it burns! Must self-medicate with massive doses of Shiner...

Thank you for ruining my first cup of coffee. Of all days, I chose a little Kona K-cup pod and was fondly remembering my last trip to the islands. Brain bleach, please.

LOL, not a way to start the day, and I'll pass on that one!

A "Stop reading now!" warning would have been nice...

Sorry, folks. If it's any consolation that erotic novel featuring barry and mooch scarred my psyche as well.

Is that Megyn Kelly (FoxNews) in the photograph?

Sure looks like her.

Toejam - welcome back. We missed you.

Don't know who the girl in the picture is. I just woke up next to her the other day... ;-)
