AZ Central | Submitted by: wingnut
Followup to an earlier Daily Rotten, a man has now fabricated the perfect defense to the gang rape in which he participated, administered as tribal punishment: Marriage. Additionally, the boy who started this by sleeping with the girl from the other family in question, claims to have been sodomized three times. What fun.

The 9-11 blood dumping scandal
New Republic | Submitted by: Ann Onymous
"If you turned on your television in the immediate aftermath of September 11, you probably saw images of Americans--tens of thousands of them across the country--lining up to give blood. This patriotic offering brought tears to the eyes of many of us. Unfortunately, it created nothing but trouble for the nation's blood banks. Faced with an unprecedented turnout, the American Red Cross and other organizations overcollected so massively that they had to discard thousands of gallons of the perishable liquid."

Japanese will eat anything
Mainichi Daily News | Submitted by: anonymous
Ice cream, in the weirdest of flavors. This was pointed out to us some time ago by several people, but for some reason it was never posted. Ox tongue ice cream may be strange enough, but the little icon mascots the brands use are even more precious.

Black oil in New Jersey a la X-Files
CNN | Submitted by: SansACause
"The spots morph over a few days... The fresh ones look like small oil spills, most of them round, most of them about 6 inches across. Though they look like liquid, they don't feel like it." This is obviously the "black oil" from the X-Files that will invade their bodies and turn them into alien hybrids. All that is necessary now is crop circles and mutilated cows in the area as absolute proof. Although, what aliens want in scenic Camden is unclear.

Reclaiming the commons
Boston Review | Submitted by: Soylent
This is a great article that covers the loss of the Commons over several aspects of American life. "The loss of a public commons in broadcasting must be counted as one of the twentieth century's great civic and cultural losses. Broadcasting, after all, is an essential vehicle for social communication. The loss of the airwaves to market enclosure—initiated by legislation in 1927 and 1934, and significantly extended through sweeping deregulation in the 1980s and 1990s—substantially expanded the role of commercial values in the evolution of our culture."

Nevada may legalize it
New York Times | Submitted by: portalnet
About fucking time: "After voting two years ago to ease state drug laws, Nevada voters could go even further this year, making their state the first to legalize marijuana and derive taxes from a regulated sales system... eliminate penalties for possessing up to three ounces of marijuana for any reason and would direct the Legislature to treat marijuana much like tobacco products and alcohol, regulating it through a system that would oversee how it is grown, distributed and sold, generating tax revenue in the process."

Ignoring Private Ryan: 100 US servicemen lost
Pravda | Submitted by: Son of Benway
"The losses of US servicemen in Afghanistan make up about 100 people, who are considered missing. Russian newspaper Moskovsky Komsomolets informs that US authorities do not conceal information about the number of missing people; on the contrary, they don't even help them...At that, the Afghani ministers are surprised not only with purposeful suppression of information by the US authorities, but with no interest from the US Department of State concerning the fate of the American soldiers."

Science of cuddle
New Scientist | Submitted by: Soylent
"Scientists have discovered why being cuddled feels so good; human skin has a special network of nerves that stimulate a pleasurable response to stroking. The revelation came after doctors realised that a woman with no sense of touch still felt a "pleasant" sensation when her skin was caressed."
