One Thing Leads To Another

Isn't it interesting how one Internet link can take you down a trail of links to places you never dreamed existed? Case in point:

I was looking at a friend's Facebook post and it linked to a story about Ghost Hunters. For the uninitiated, Ghost Hunters is a reality TV show featuring a cast of characters that investigate reports of paranormal activity. I don't watch, but for some reason I clicked on the link. There wasn't much of interest there, but there was a link to another story that caught my eye.

Casting agent seeks naked ghost hunters for new paranormal series
Producers in Los Angeles are looking for ghost hunters that will bare everything on camera during an investigation for a new cable reality series. A mass email was sent to paranormal investigators all over the country and is going viral on social media...

"For this paranormal investigating show, we are putting a different spin on paranormal investigating and we are looking for people and/or teams that would be interested in taking paranormal investigating to the next level by doing it in the nude..."

Not to worry. The 'investigators' will not be nude for the sake of cheap sensationalism, but rather in the spirit of scientific inquiry.
The producers are using nudity for the concept of the show because they want to see if paranormal research teams get different readings and more evidence than when they are fully clothed. They believe that spirits will communicate with someone more vulnerable.

Anyway, at the bottom of that story was a link to another article that just screamed to be clicked on.

Man convinces woman her vagina is haunted and tries to rid ghosts with his penis

I mean, seriously, how could anyone not follow that link?
A man was recently arrested in China after he claimed that he could get rid of ghosts from a young woman's vagina with his penis. The paranormal enthusiast allegedly charged over $3000 to perform the sexorcism...
Wow! Why didn't I think of that when I was young, single, and horny? Not only did the guy talk the girl into boinking him, but he got her to pay for it!

Huang Jianjun was arrested in the Guangdong Province earlier this month after he convinced A Xin that he could remove evil spirits from her vagina by having sexual intercourse. After the bizarre incident, Xin called police the following day and Jianjun was promptly arrested.

"The victim allegedly came to the self-described "ghost hunter" because she needed help seducing her boss who she had a crush on. That's when Jianjun allegedly pitched the unorthodox exorcism idea..."
That's a tough act to follow, but this gal gives it the old college try.

“I just left a job on Wall Street for a porn career because I can’t stop masturbating at work”
Paige A. Jennings, who moonlights under the stage name Veronica Vain, dropped her internship at Lazard Asset Management last week after her nude selfies taken in the bathroom of the firm’s Manhattan offices were discovered online...

“I just left a job on Wall Street for a porn career because I can’t stop masturbating at work,” Jennings, 23, wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Jennings had been a part-time intern in the company’s alternative-investments marketing group since last June, Business Insider said.

But after her co-workers discovered the nude bathroom photos posted on her Veronica Vain Twitter account, she soon decided to seek other employment.

“It was a little awkward,” Jennings told the Web site about meeting with her boss after the pics went public. “However, he obviously couldn’t have me coming back to the office when likely just about everyone had seen me half-naked online.”
A little bit awkward? That's an understatement. But half-naked pictures aside, something tells me she wasn't cut out for a career on Wall Street anyway.

What did we ever do before the Internet...?

I don't know quite what to say about those internet sites you mentioned. Were people always this crazy or do we just share more now that we have the internet?

I wanted to do some figure drawing, so I used Google to find me some figures. It worked well and most of the figures were nude. Then I remembered someone telling me about their preacher. Apparently his computer was having problemas, and he asked one of his church people to take a look at his computer. The person found all sorts of porn on the computer, and the preacher was fired. What if someone looked at my computer - would they think I was looking at porn? Maybe.

People don't change, the tools they use change. We have increasing ways to be asshats. How much longer until smart phones can do holographic projections? Imagine the ways that capability will be abused.

BB - I think it's a little bit of both.

When I was teaching we did an in-class exercise where we performed an online search for information on breast cancer. The number of 'inappropriate' sites that showed up was staggering. If anyone searched that computer they would assume we were looking at topless women during class.

WSF - I wonder what the Old West equivalent of obscene phone calls was - obscene Pony Express messages...?
