Submitted by

+ - RIAA to Sue Car Owners For Sharing Music

Submitted by
VintagePC writes "Cory Deitz on About.Com's Radio subsection writes to tell us that the RIAA plans to sue car owners for illegally sharing the music from their radios with other passengers in the car. The RIAA claims that the music played by these radios is not meant to be used by anyone other than the original purchaser of the car, and as such, it is considered copyright infringement. Does this bode ill for the owners of restaurants that play relaxing music at mealtimes?"

+ - Could Oral Sex Cure Skin Cancer?

Submitted by shaitand
shaitand (626655) writes "Previously my wife had a small spot of skin cancer removed. About a year later the spot returned. Rather than taking her back to the kooks in white coats I put her on a protein diet. I had previously read that females who engaged in oral sex and swallowed had greater disease and cancer resistance. So I began administering salted protein doses orally twice daily. Within three months the spot was completely gone and it has never returned. Could this really have been the cure?

Should we all make this sacrifice for the benefit of our significant others?"
