So some of us travel around the world. Some of us are germ freaks. Some of us fear the use of public bathrooms. So we landed upon World Toilet Info which is very informative about toilets around the world. yes TOILETS. It’s so random that there would be a site on what type of toilets to expect around the world. Anyhow, it’s kind of informative if you’re very particular about how and where you release your daily waste. So don’t be surprised if you go oversees and you have to wipe your ass with a left hand or water down your shit with a green hose. Ewww. Just remember that we provided you with an international guide.
The production company Morgan Creek has sued Amaru Entertainment, alleging that the company ran by Afeni Shakur has reneged on an agreement to sell 2Pac‘s life rights for an upcoming film adaptation.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Amaru and Morgan Creek started negotiations in November of 2008 for a currently untitled Tupac Shakur biopic. The complaint states a written contract was in place for the late Shakur‘s life rights, but representatives from Morgan Creek were unhappy with Amaru Entertainment‘s “refusal to honor and perform a contract of a production of the film based on the life of Tupac Shakur.” Morgan Creek is reportedly seeking financial damages and other relief.
Amaru Entertainment lawyer, Skip Miller, says no written contract was in place, and he indicates that Amaru will take defensive measures.

Inspired by the British pirate radio revolution in the ’60s, the majority of the film’s shoot will take place in a large rusty metal fishing trawler moored off the coast of England in the very waters that kept the rock of the ’60s booming into the U.K.
In 1966 — arguably British pop music’s finest era — the BBC played only two hours of rock and roll every week. But pirate radio blasted rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day. And 25 million people — more than half the population of Britain — listened to these pirates every single day.
“The Boat That Rocked” is an ensemble comedy in which the romance takes place between the young people of the ’60s and pop music. It’s about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defined a generation and standing up to a government that, incomprehensibly, preferred jazz.
Leading the cast are Philip Seymour Hoffman as The Count, a big, brash, American god of the airwaves; Bill Nighy as Quentin, the boss of Radio Rock — a pirate radio station in the middle of the North Sea that’s populated by an eclectic crew of rock and roll DJs;
TelTech Systems is offering mobile telephone users the power to unmask callers who block their numbers or names from being displayed. caller-id
The US-based firm launched a TrapCall service this month with an online posting thanking its development team and declaring “Get ready for the site to go ballistic.”
To use the service, people register mobile telephone numbers at a TrapCall.com website without having to download software to devices.
Calls from unidentified sources can then be bounced to TelTech computers, which reveal points of origin.
Mobile telephone users can then decide whether to accept the calls.
“All the while the caller hears a normal ring tone, oblivious to the fact that you know exactly who they are,” TrapCall maintains at its website.
A basic version of TrapCall is available for free. Premium versions of the service can record mobile telephone calls, transcribe voice messages into text messages, and reveal names and addresses of callers along with their telephone numbers.
Premium versions are available for monthly fees of 10 dollars or 25 dollars.
TelTech has for several years provided a controversial “SpoofCard” service that puts bogus identification information on calls and enables callers to alter the sounds of their voices.
“You have the ability to change your voice to a male or female,” the company says at its SpoofCard website.
“If you do choose to change your voice, the person whom you call will hear your transformed voice in real-time.”
Facebook’s efforts to build a business model around its online social network have hit another roadblock, as a backlash by its users forced the company to reverse a new policy.
The dispute involves changes that Facebook had made to its terms of service agreement. Some critics said the changes appeared to give the company a perpetual right to content that users post on the network.
People Against the new Terms of Service, a Facebook group created to oppose the changes, counted more than 88,000 users on Wednesday.
The about-face by Facebook underscores the sensitivity that many consumers have about their personal data, even on sites where they freely share information about their lives with online friends.
And it reflects the challenges facing Facebook as it seeks to squeeze money out of its network of 175 million users and to offset the costs of its rapid growth.
Facebook is quickly burning through its initial funding, said Sanford Bernstein analyst Jeffrey Lindsay. Among other things, the social network needs to pay for the computers and equipment that host its online service around the world.
Banksy is well known around the world in no small part due to his massive popularity online. Banksy art has made its way into all kinds of nooks and crannies on the internet but few collections are anything close to comprehensive (and in many cases are not even coherent). Most are difficult to navigate and devoid of context, featuring disparate works alongside one another without explanation.
The first reason we love Peaches is because she pushes the limit for female dominance in a predominantly male dominated field. The second reason to love Peaches is that, in her perpetual state of raunchiness, she makes Luke and Two Live Crew look like inexperienced virgins. Oh, and the fact that such vulgarity comes from a ex school teacher makes it that much more enticing.
Another reason to love Peaches is her forthcoming album, I Feel Cream, said to be released May 4th. Producers, along side Peaches, include Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism, Soulwax and Drums of Death, which will make for an interesting dance sound slightly different than what we’re used to hearing from the queen of obscenity.
You can get your first taste of I Feel Cream via the Drums of Death vs. Peaches mixtape currently available on the Drums of Death MySpace page. It features bits of three new songs—“Lose You”, “Buck You Like A Billionaire” and “I Feel Cream—along with lots of classic Peaches cuts.
1. Is it that time of the month? Blaming a woman’s anger on her period is the quickest way to ensure her rage will now be focused on you. It doesn’t matter if she blows up at you like clockwork every 28 days — just don’t say it.
2. When are you due? Unless her belly is indisputably housing a baby, never assume a woman is pregnant. We will, however, accept offers of seats even if we’re just bloated.
3. Smile. There is nothing more infuriating than being told to “Smile” when you don’t feel like it.. Aren’t we allowed to have a bad day?
4. That’s not the way my ex did it. You’re better off just avoiding the topic of ex-girlfriends in general, unless accompanied by phrases like “vastly inferior to my current girlfriend.”
