Esquire Web Site Seeks Perverts

I'm all for search engine optimization, but titling a web page this way feels a bit dishonest:

Esquire Advertises Nude Photos, Doesn't Deliver
Look closely at the top...

Esquire Lies!
No Nude Righetti Spaghetti Pics Here

It feels cheap, like a trick a softcore porn site would try to pull off. You go to click on "Nude Photos of Connie Chung" and there's one photo of Connie Chung fully dressed in a suit, surrounded by ads for "Extenz."

Not that I've ever done anything like that online...

Are magazines really getting that desperate that they're resorting to Porn website tactics to draw pageviews?? What's next? CNN titling their web pages "Hillary Clinton Bikini Pics"?

When Life Throws You A Curveball

The Curveball

Found this on Deadspin today. Awesome optical illusion, that explains why a curveball doesn't really curve, but looks that way to a hitter.

An interesting part of this illusion is the fact that if you focus on the opposite side (not the side with the blue dot), then the ball looks straight. I wonder if the key to hitting a big league curveball is simply focusing your eyes away from the ball, staring at the space opposite the curveball's spin. I'll have to try it next time I'm in the major leagues.

Everything You Never Wanted To Know

Yahoo Answers

I check out Yahoo! Answers sometimes when I'm bored... and I've definitely seen some questions like this. Stupid people? Or just jokesters? Either way, these are pretty damn funny.
