"Students in America would probably have an easier time naming 50 sex positions than naming the country's 50 states.If you happen to suffer from this problem, the people at Durex have a solution for you, as they have given each of the country's fifty states their very own sex position"

A very clever look back at what computers used to be like many years ago - type in your search term and experience what it would have been like if we had had Google back then..

Brilliant idea!

"Artist Simon Beck must really love the cold weather! Along the frozen lakes of Savoie, France, he spends days plodding through the snow in raquettes (snowshoes), creating these sensational patterns of snow art. Working for 5-9 hours a day, each final piece is typically the size of three soccer fields! The geometric forms range in mathematical patterns and shapes that create stunning, sometimes 3D, designs when viewed from higher levels."

Top 20 Nude Scenes of 2012

|
http://www.fakes.net/top20_2012.htm

"Theatrical movies took back the top places from the cable group this year. Of the top 14 nude performances, 13 came from movies. Some of the nudest cable shows were shut out, or nearly so, and the six TV shows that did make the list mostly finished in the bottom third of the balloting. It's not that the cable shows became tamer, but rather that they lacked star power in their nude scenes while the movie group was filled with familiar faces, many of whom were making their nude debuts, like the top two finishers (Sarah Silverman and Olivia Munn)."
