Weekly Entertainment

Well hello my little gingersnaps!! That’s right, I am going to be here every Saturday giving you the lowdown on the week’s more entertaining stories. I’ll do my best to entertain you. Try not to fall asleep. Also, I respond very well to positive reinforcement in the form of COMMENTS. Oh I’m sorry, was that too obvious? (I’m not really sorry) Well, let’s get started, shall we?

Taylor Swift likes to go hiking. And Taylor Swift doesn’t want paparazzi taking her picture while she hikes. So she came up with a genius way to keep them from taking her picture. She. Hikes. BACKWARDS.

spaceI just have a couple of things to say, Taylor. 1. You are not stopping the paparazzi from taking pictures of you. Now they just have pictures of you walking in a very strange, unnatural way. 2. In the highly likely event you trip over something and bust your @ss, there will be paparazzi there to take a picture of you falling, frame by frame. 3. You live in Southern California. You’re hiking in the hills. Some of those hills have cliffs. One day you might fall off a cliff in your attempt to hike backwards TO AVOID PICTURES THE PAPARAZZI ARE TAKING ANYWAY.  4. It’s hard to see the Mountain Lions coming when your back is to them. Actually that’s not a valid point because whether you are walking forward or backward, if you see a Mountain Lion coming at you, you’re dead either way.  4. You just told the whole world on Social Media that you hike backwards to avoid the paparazzi from taking a picture of you, so your backwards hiking is making the rounds making you just seem weird.space

What I’m trying to say, Taylor is your logic lacks logic. Just hike like normal and wear the same outfit every time. Then the paparazzi won’t be able to keep selling pictures of you hiking and they’ll stop taking pictures. See? Problem solved. Why does no one ask me for advice in these matters?!space

 

Taylor Swift has an ingenious strategy to keep the paparazzi from photographing her face.

How do we know this actually is Taylor Swift? She told everybody.

It’s not a strange exercise or passing fad, it’s an avoidance technique. This particular photo was going around Tumblr, confusing “Swifties” as to why Taylor would be hiking backwards. Taylor, a fellow Tumblrer, was quick to answer that she sometimes hikes backwards to avoid the paparazzi.

Now, if you are trying to avoid being photographed, I wouldn’t tell people when they have successfully photographed you anyway. Beside that point, I am sure hiking backwards does have some aerobic benefit.

New Species Of Suicidally Sex-Crazed Marsupial May Be In Danger

 In Weird News, there is a small, mouse-like marsupial native to Australia and New Guinea, called an Antechinus. The Antechinus is best known for the frenzied — and suicidal — sex habits of its males. For a period of two to three weeks, males mate with as many females as possible, sometimes having sex for 14 hours straight.
space“They’ll bleed internally, they have ulcers, their fur falls off in patches, sometimes they’re stumbling around blind and still trying to mate,” mammalogist Dr. Andrew Baker told the Australian Broadcasting Company.”
spaceUltimately, the testosterone triggers a malfunction in the stress hormone shut-off switch; the resulting rise in stress hormones causes the males’ immune systems to collapse and they all drop dead before the females give birth to a single baby.

 So these creatures are in danger due to loss of habitat and climate change, and scientists are trying to get them on Australia’s horniest endangered animal list. Okay, okay, I think they already got that title.  They’re trying to get them on the threatened list.

So here’s the real question… Would you rather: Be reincarnated as a male Antechinus or an Unsullied under Khaleesi’s rule?

 Scientists in Australia have discovered a new species of an animal known for having sex to the point of suicide — but the creature may be in danger from more than just its own libido.

The antechinus is a small, mouse-like marsupial native to Australia and New Guinea.

A Monday news release from Queensland University of Technology announced that scientists have discovered a new species of the little critter, the Tasman Peninsula Dusky Antechinus. The release said the species, along with two other species of antechinus found previously, is threatened by climate change and loss of habitat and scientists are trying to get the animals placed on Australia’s federal threatened species list.

The antechinus is best known for the frenzied — and suicidal — sex habits of its males. For a period of two to three weeks, males mate with as many females as possible, sometimes having sex for 14 hours straight.

“They’ll bleed internally, they have ulcers, their fur falls off in patches, sometimes they’re stumbling around blind and still trying to mate,” mammalogist Dr. Andrew Baker told the Australian Broadcasting Company.

Baker explains in the news release how this manic lovemaking results in the animal’s death:

Ultimately, the testosterone triggers a malfunction in the stress hormone shut-off switch; the resulting rise in stress hormones causes the males’ immune systems to collapse and they all drop dead before the females give birth to a single baby.

This yearly male suicide mission, which halves each antechinus population, means the mums have enough spiders and insects to eat while they raise the next precious generation. But the future of each species is entrusted to the mothers alone.

 The press release also notes that scientists recently “elevated” an antechinus subspecies — the Mainland Dusky Antechinus — to the status of species. The Mainland Dusky Antechinus was originally discovered in 1840, but was only formally named as its own species last year, according to a paper published in Memoirs of the Queensland Museum — Nature.

The Mainland Dusky Antechinus is found in southeastern Australia, while the newly discovered species, the Tasman Peninsula Dusky Antechinus, lives on the Tasman Peninsula. Baker warns in the news release that the Tasman Peninsula Dusky Antechinus may be in danger.

“Most of its limited habitat falls within state forest, which is being logged,” Baker said. “This species now apparently only lives in tiny, fragmented stands of intact forest that are under threat.”

Baker went on to note the importance of conserving natural habitat. “Uncovering new mammals in developed countries like Australia is pretty rare and the fact we’ve found even more antechinus species hints at the biodiversity jewels still waiting to be unearthed,” he said.

The mammalogist also fears for the future of two other antechinus species — the Black-tailed and Silver-headed Antechinus — which he says are threatened by climate change.

“These species have already retreated to their misty mountain summits — in the face of ongoing climate warming, they have nowhere left to run,” he said.

One man’s arousal at the sight of naked bodies got him escorted from a naked cycling event.space  No boners allowed. (via Getty)space

 Once a year, in Kent, England, a bunch of people take off all their clothes and ride their bikes naked to draw attention to the dangers automobiles cause to bikes.  Umm… what about the dangers bicycles cause to naked genitals?!  Nevermind, that’s not the point.  The point is that when everyone disrobed, one man got a *gasp* erection after being surrounded by a bunch of naked people.  Several gasps could be heard from everyone around him and he was escorted out.  Because apparently only flaccid penises are allowed on this World Naked Bike Ride.

Please make a note of this if you plan to attend in the future.

 The World Naked Bike Ride took place in Kent, England this weekend. These nude bike rides occur around the world to raise awareness for the dangers automobiles pose to cyclists. The event in Kent started out with the participants disrobing, and that’s when a problem arose. One part of one man was way too excited to be there. An organizer immediately summoned the police, and the man was removed from the hard situation he created.

One witness told The Cambridge News: “It’s fair to say he was overexcited and got aroused. It looked like he was enjoying the event a bit too much.” It makes sense that the staff and participants want to spread awareness for their cause, not personal arousal. But it’s bound to happen occasionally, since naked bodies are usually what people look at to get aroused. People still do this, right? Or has everyone moved on to robots?

The best part of this story is the following witness quote: “I heard gasps, and I turned around – it was a horrible sight.” To clarify, the person who said this is open to seeing a bunch of genitals smashed on bike seats, but when one of them changes shape, it becomes horrifying. HORRIFYING.

So remember, naked bodies are to be used as vessels to enact change and further an agenda, not for sexual excitement.

Everyone seems to be wearing a Fitbit these days.  Well maybe not everyone, but all my friends who have pressured me to join the Fitbit craze so we can compare daily steps and sleep and something like that. You all know who you are. But guess what? There’s now a Wearable Sex Tracker.  A Fitbit for your penis!!  Well, technically, it’s still raising money on Indiegogo for production.  But if it’s successful, you will be able to put this Fitbit on your Gentleman’s Sausage and it will track your sexual activity, from calories burned, to number of thrusts, to the intensity of intercourse.  I’m wondering if there’s a buddy system for this, like they do with the other Fitbit.  Hey buddy… let’s check in with each other daily and compare our number of thrusts.  Whaddya say men?

How lovely.

As wearable devices become more and more common, techies are able to better incorporate their smartphones, watches and fitness trackers into a daily routine. And a new Indiegogo campaign hopes you’re ready to take wearables along for some of your most intimate moments, too.

The Lovely, a “smart” sex toy, fits around the penis and tracks sexual activity — from calories burned, to number of thrusts, to the intensity of intercourse. A smartphone app measures these and other data sets before recommending new sex positions “to help you have even better sex next time,” the Indiegogo page reads.

Made of silicone, the one-size-fits-all toy vibrates to help provide stimulation during sex. It syncs to your smartphone via bluetooth, and its battery lasts for seven hours without vibration, or two hours with. When Lovely’s battery gets low, just place it in its wireless charging cradle to power it up.

One of the best things about the device? Its tracking software isn’t only for straight couples — it’s meant for relationships of all orientations.

“It doesn’t just have to go on a penis,” Reid Mahalko, a sex and relationship expert attached to the project, says of the Lovely in a promotional video. “You can put this wearable on a dildo, you can put it on your fingers, you can use it on a toy on yourself. It’s really only going to be limited by the ideas that you come up with.”

The project is currently raising money on Indiegogo. If the campaign reaches its goal of $95,000 by early July, the Lovely will eventually be released for $169 a pop. The project had raised nearly $5,000, as of Friday afternoon.

People who donate to the campaign can expect to get their Lovely device by June 2016, if the funding is successful, that is.

  1. LOL and let’s hope you never have to go to an “Ass Hair Salon”. Can you imagine having that on your resume? “Ass Hair Beautician/Waxer at Ass Hair Salon”.

  2. I loved, loved, loved the “It’s Raining Men” video with the Avengers! That def made my week! Taylor Swift came across as mentally challenged and I’ve definitely never been to an “Ass Hair Salon!” 🙂

  3. No I have not seen pictures of Taylor getting into her car backwards. I hope she’s not driving backwards too! Looney. You live that close to Kent? You MUST document this event next year!! LOL

  4. Have you seen the pics/video of Taylor getting in to her car backwards? She is one crazy lady!

    Also I have never heard of the naked bike ride and I live 40 minutes from Kent! But them being them lot over the water are crazy enough to hold that kinda thing! Lol

  5. Australia for the win. Followed quickly by the passive aggressive photo… Looking good, Ging!

  6. So glad S&G is back!! I just love your take on weird news and current events. Welcome back!!!

  7. Which is crazier…the closeted gay guy who was so ashamed of his sexuality that he blamed it on a car accident or the fact that a guy became aroused by being around a bunch of naked people? Madness!

    So excited to have the Spank and Ginger Show to look forward to again.

We LOVE comments!
