Pony Party, this ‘n that

According to Yahoo!News…

Programs that focus exclusively on abstinence have not been shown to affect teenager sexual behavior, although they are eligible for tens of mil lions of dollars in federal grants, according to a study released by a nonpartisan group that seeks to reduce teen pregnancies….

…The study found that while abstinence-only efforts appear to have little positive impact, more comprehensive sex education programs were having “positive outcomes” including teenagers “delaying the initiation of sex, reducing the frequency of sex, reducing the number of sexual partners and increasing condom or contraceptive use.”


The least caffeinated cities are San Francisco/Oakland, followed closely by Philadelphia, New York, Detroit and Baltimore. The survey considered numerous caffeine sources, including coffee, tea, sodas, energy drinks, chocolate, pain relievers and caffeine pills….

…Here’s the buzz on the most and least wired cities:

  Most Caffeinated Cities:  Least Caffeinated Cities:
  1. Chicago  1. San Francisco/Oakland
  2. Tampa  2. Philadelphia
3.  Miami  3. New York
4. Phoenix  4. Detroit
5.  Atlanta  5. Baltimore

The Yahoo!News story also contains a breakdown of caffeine consumption by source.

And, finally, the Artist formerly known as ‘the Artist formerly known as Prince’ is apparently suing his 3 largest fan sites, insisting they remove his likeness, lyrics, and ‘anything linked to Prince’s likeness’ from their websites.  Yep, he’s suing his fans.  He has also apparently threatened to sue various video and image-hosting sites for the distribution of his work and image. 

Prince’s representatives claim that the website owners are spinning the story to make themselves look like victims, calling their claims ‘incorrect and misleading’.

Be nice!

  1. The way to make sex ed both comprehensive and effective is to make it very, very, boring.

    We got sex ed all the way through high school. We got the essential details but it was way too dry to make anybody wanna go out and do it. Teenagers generally don’t need much help in getting worked up about stuff. They can do it on their own.

    …about gender variance, today wouldn’t be happening.

    On the plus side, I don’t have to go on Survivor in order to know how it feels to be voted off the island.

    shyness and fear of new things?

    and i wasn’t all that sure, as a teenager, that i wanted somebody exploring my privacy in that way. in fact, i was a little afraid of sex at that age.

    why do you suppose it’s so different today? or is? maybe i was the outlier
