Let’s See What’s in the News Today: 11/14/2010


The Large Hadron Collider has created a “mini big-bang” which will give scientists a better understanding of the universe.

Check out some of the strangest 10 facts about the universe.  My favorite is number one: Gödel’s incompleteness theorems still blows my mind.


Bill Maher gives a good account on why the left/right divide has been much more polarized and how the right is going more right while the left. . . is actually going more right, right into the center.  It seems that it’s the dynamic of politics: one generations right issue will be the next generation’s center issue. Hat tip to Felicia Willems.  Jon Stewart rebuts here.


A question was posed about why polyamorous couples have a lesser stigma than other types of relationships.  There’s only been one response so far, but I agree with Smith’s answer.

Hong Kong is making the world’s first 3D IMAX porn.  It’ll probably be a huge success since the movie is called Sex & Zen, which is based off of ancient Chinese lure.  I’m not sure it’ll make it in the states since most IMAX movies will probably not carry it.

A porn company called Private wants to build 100 luxury hotels around the world.  He’ll even offer guests to stay for free.  There’s one caveat though: you must perform some sexual act on a webcam in the hotel and that act will be sent out through the internet.  It’s an interesting business move.  Why have actors perform when you can have the couples do it for free and they stay at a nice hotel?  The subscribers will basically pay for the hotel services.

About shaunmiller

I have just completed a visiting position as an assistant professor at Dalhousie University. My ideas are not associated with my employer; they are expressions of my own thoughts and ideas. Some of them are just musings while others could be serious discussions that could turn into a bigger project. Besides philosophy, I enjoy martial arts (Kuk Sool Won), playing my violin, enjoying coffee around town, and experimenting with new food.
