If any California based BUSTies are also planning to tie the knot, check out photographer Max Wanger. His engagement photos for 'Joanna and Alex' and 'Grace and Dominic' are exceptionally adorable. I love the balloon and candy themes! It's just too bad he's ... Read More
It seems the world has hit a new low when it comes to women and body image. Fitness First, a chain of gyms in the Netherlands, launched a new ad campaign -- they rigged a scale up to the benches in bus stops so that when someone sits down it displays their weight in big red numbers.

LOOK AT THESE FREAKIN HUMANOID FISH!!! These ladies are the product of one very inbred pond in South Korea, they are the last of their kind because no male-equivalent exists. If you need to know more than that, check out Weird Asian News. Ok, maybe I will be a little esoteric, its a bit of a personal compulsion.

The Board has decided to suspend a contract they have with Planned Parenthood to provide health education for thousands of young people.
