Men melt

An Brazilian artist has tried to bring attention to global warming by creating 1,000 miniature ice sculptures of men. Nele Azevedo positioned the ice men on the steps of Berlin’s Concert Hall and allowed them to melt in the sun.

Socially Accepted Prostitution

20 10 2009

Today whilst reading one of my favourite blogs, Socialite Life, I was updated on the developments in the life of a very important ‘celebrity’ known as Khloe Kardashian. Khloe Kardashian’sKhloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom claim to fame is that she is the daughter of Robert Kardashian, the now deceased attorney that helped O.J. Simpson possibly get away with murder. Somehow this rather grim claim to fame enabled Khloe and her sisters to get their own reality show called ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’. What a strange world we live in.

Khloe is the least attractive of the three sisters. Kim and Kourtney are petite and cute whilst Khloe at times resembles a transvestite. So how did Khloe go about getting some attention? She got herself a quickie celebrity wedding to NBA Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom.

I would imagine that right now they should be enjoying the first few months of marriage but no, they are hashing out the details of their pre-nup. Personally, I think pre-nups do have some positives to them so it’s not the pre-nup itself that I think is bad. What’s bad is the terms of the pre-nup. According to various news items, Khloe is demanding a ‘high net-worth property’, a luxury car, ring-side Laker seats for her family for life and a monthly allowance in the tens of thousands for beauty maintenance and shopping. Since when did being married to a basketball star become such a chore that you need to be financially rewarded for the hardship of it?? Demanding money in return for being with someone amounts to prostitution. Perhaps Khloe should think about the fact that if it is all just a business transaction then he is well within his rights to see other women and to be as selfish as he wants i.e. he can treat her like a prostitute.

Totally worked on me

This is the most effective condom advert I’ve ever seen. Pity it got banned.
