It's painful at this point to write anything related to the bogeyman known as Charlie Sheen, but here we are. One of his "goddesses," Bree Olson, who stars in porn films and tweets dirty things ("Once you fuck me it'll be hard to go back to that tired worn old bitch. Lol I'll ride it like a rodeo."), bumped up against prewar French conceptual art and didn't quite get it. The above is a picture of her with Marcel Duchamp's 1917 "readymade" Fountain in the background. Quoth Bree, "Art museum in Philly last week. They had some creepy shit!" LOL art is so weird.
The world of online dating is full of misleading profiles. It's a huge cliche, really. Remember what happened last week with the OkCupid lonelyhearts 4chan tried to prank? Anyway, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. A new dating website called "Cloud Girlfriend" casts off any pretense of realism and offers people a place to come and openly pretend to be other people.

Ben Franklin was just like us. Except, more prolific. With a hairstyle that would really not work for us. And then there's that electricity thing. But regardless of our differences, he would have made an amazing blogger (Poor Richard's the Tumblr!), and it goes without saying that we would have jumped at the chance to party with him. Thankfully, his legacy lives on in myriad forms, not least, in his cataloging of the many, varied, and special ways you might explain to friend or foe that you are "under the weather" in "that way."
Dude was nonstop party.
Today in You're Old: young French children try to figure out what the hell a Game Boy is (also: floppy discs and video game cartridges). One kid thinks an 8-track is a bomb. This blogger is 21 and remembers Game Boys and floppy discs, at least.More »
