Germans discover world's oldest dildo

Archaeologists have found the remains of the world's oldest dildo
German scientists are tickled pink after unearthing one of the world's oldest sculpted phalluses - 20cm of polished siltstone lovingly created around 28,000 years ago.

The stone schlong was discovered in Hohle Fels Cave near Ulm, Swabia, by a Tübingen University team. Professor Nicholas Conard, from the university's snappily-named department of Early Prehistory and Quaternary Ecology, explained the excitment to the BBC thus: "Female representations with highly accentuated sexual attributes are very well documented at many sites, but male representations are very, very rare."

Indeed, although other examples of male genitalia - from France and Morocco - predate the Ulm member, to have "any representation of male genitalia from this time period is highly unusual".

There may be a good reason for this - the German sausage bears the scars of having been used to knap flints, and was reassembled from 14 fragments. Despite this abuse, and in a delicious leap of imagination, Conard speculates that the life-size member may have been used as a prehistoric sex toy. As he suggestively notes: "It's highly polished."

Those interested in the sex lives of our distant ancestors will be able to cop an eyeful of the Hohle Fels phallus when it goes on show at a Blaubeuren prehistoric museum exhibition entitled "Ice Art - Clearly Male".

Worldwide Internet Art Project "The Sudden Morning"

Everyone take a photograph at 8.15 on August 6 to mark the 60th anniversary of the atomic bomb dropping on Hiroshima.

In these dark times, it is important that right-minded people express their desire for peace world-wide and commemorate on of the most horrific acts of war ever perpetrated.

The Atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima at 8:15 am on August 6, 1945. Just 60 yeas after that what scenes are we going to see on 2005, on the very same day and on the very same time that the A-bomb was dropped?
We may see a family at the breakfast table, business people hurrying for work, a newborn baby, people preparing for a wedding or just a quiet harbor.
So many scenes will be laid before us.
This project will give us a chance to see the different views worldwide on the 8:15 am of August 6th this year through the net.
Looking at how people all over the world spend this ordinary morning, we will share some kind of feeling about that sudden morning in Hiroshima. We believe that this will help us genuinely think of what real peace or happiness is all about.
The project is supported by Hiroshima citizens mainly consist of IT engineers. We fully welcome your participation in this project.

Oh what a sick and twisted world we live in

Police are investigating a Seattle farm where they believe bestiality has been carried out:

However, authorities didn't learn about the farm until a man drove up to Enumclaw Community Hospital on July 2 seeking medical assistance for a companion. Medics wheeled the man into an examination room before realizing he was dead. When hospital workers looked for the driver, he was gone.
Using the dead man's driver's license to track down relatives and acquaintances, authorities were led to the Enumclaw farm. Some earlier reports had said hospital-surveillance cameras were used to track down the driver.
The dead man was identified as a 45-year-old Seattle resident. According to the King County Medical Examiner's Office, he died of acute peritonitis due to perforation of the colon. The man's death is not being investigated because it did not result from a crime, Urquhart said.
The Seattle man's relatives said yesterday

Turns the stomach to think about it. But it could be worse they could live next door

Two neighbors, a married couple who declined to allow use of their names, said yesterday they had no idea what had been going on at the farm. They said they've known one of the men who live on the farm for years.

On Thursday, police showed the couple videotape seized from the farm showing men having sex with horses. The couple identified one of the horses as belonging to them, Sortland said. The couple also said it appeared at least part of the tape was filmed in their barn, which left them shocked and angry
