3/30    Commuter porn everywhere: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/12059964
        \_ "wherever new audio-visual electronics go, porn goes with it."
           He's got that backwards.
           \_ That...that doesn't make very much sense.

3/21    Is there a reason why women love junk mail and spam mail? I helped
        my family members get rid of Red Plum, Valassis, DMA, etc and
        everyone's junk mail has decreased significantly, however all the
        women in my life (wife, sister, mother) are pissed at me. Ditto with
        email spam: through their permissions I unsubscribed mailing lists,
        but now they want them back again because they're missing out on some

12/6    Lesson learned: don't talk about Monty Python on a date. Women just
        don't seem to get it.
        \_ You are dating the wrong women (for you) then. My sister-in-law
           loves it and yet I don't find it all that funny. It's not a
           gender thing.
           \_ is she a nerd? does she laugh funny? is she actually decent looking?

11/6    I downloaded some free and paid apps that are ummmm questionable and
        I don't really want my wife to see it, how do I remove it from the
        iTunes download history? I can't seem to do that anymore after
        upgrading to iOS6 (I used to be able to "hide" it).

7/29    Is it really true that we subsidize auto driving to the tune of
        $5k/yr? Shit I could probably hire a private driver for less...

        \_ You might have missed the point.  Hiring a chauffeur to drive your
           private vehicle won't change the amount of gasoline your private

6/17    RIDE BIKE people, where does one buy a cheap < $100 commuter bike
        that will be used by a visiting foreign student for 3 months then
        thrown away?
        \_ You can get a bike that cheap off of Craig's list but you will
           need to do some work on it before it will be safe. I bought a
           used Gary Fisher for $50 but it needed a new chain, new cables

Sexploration With commuter porn, anyone can get an eyeful But what's the thrill in watching XXX on tiny screens in cars, handhelds? Cell phone displaying picture of porn star Jameson Peter Morgan / Reuters file A cell phone features a tiny image of porn star Jenna Jameson. Brian Alexander E-mail Though I can't be positive, I think there's a law (something like Moore's Law, the idea that the number of transistors you can put on a computer chip doubles about every two years) that says wherever new audio-visual electronics go, porn goes with it. How many people ran out to buy BetaMax or VHS video tape players just so they could rent "Flashdance"? So now that we have 3G cell phones, PSP game handhelds, PDAs and the iPod, porn-in-a-pocket is a reality. In fact, before Sony's PSP was even officially out on the market last year, there were porn videos for it. New online services, a la i-Tunes, will download, say, "Hi Neighbor" ("When Alexis invites you over for a movie ... Or you can buy Japanese disks formatted for PSP with titles such as "Big-Breasted Nurse Mitsu Amai" or "Undressing Volley Division," which, judging by the cover, involves volleyball without pants. Playboy has a PSP download service for its brand of softer erotica featuring its "Cyber Girls." According to New Scientist magazine, an analysis by two computer researchers from Google showed that a higher percentage of Web searches from cell phones were for adult material than were searches launched from desktop computers. The market for DVD systems in cars is growing every year, too, and not only because mom wants to keep the kids amused with "Dora the Explorer." Video systems in low-riders and tricked-out SUVs often have an X-rated video playing in them as part of the bad-ass atmosphere. No more newspapers expertly folded to two-column width to accommodate the crammed subway, no more traffic reports on the car radio. Nope, goes the theory, the diversion on commutes may resemble a trip to the old Pussycat Theaters. Japanese salary men already stand in train cars on their way to work reading porn-and-bondage manga. Soon, if it hasn't happened yet, you might glance over the shoulder of some guy in the next seat to find out what song he's playing, only to get an eyeful of Brianna Banks' private parts on a two-inch screen. Picked up for 'drive-by porn' There have already been arrests in several states for so-called drive-by porn. Last December, in Spartanburg, SC, an off-duty highway patrolman and his wife happened to pull in behind 26-year-old Jerome Curtis Buckson whose video system was playing "Booty Talk 43" on a screen aimed at the backseat - and therefore through the rear windshield. The judge figured the video did not fit the charge of "dissemination of obscenity," but the state was thinking of re-filing similar charges. I thought I'd call Mr Buckson and ask him what, exactly, he was thinking. I mean, there was nobody in the back seat to watch the video. According to Spartanburg police, he was arrested in January and has been charged with burglary and murder. In Oklahoma, state representative Joe Dorman was driving down Northwest Expressway in Oklahoma City "when I stopped at a light and the person in front of me had two of the DVD players over the back seat and both were playing the same movie," he told Sexploration. So we go to two more stop lights and I looked twice to make sure I was seeing what I thought was playing on there. States like Louisiana, Tennessee and Virginia have passed such laws already and other states considered them. Some bills stalled because of the usual definitional problems, like what's "obscene" and "intentional" and "private." If so, breaking it could result in a misdemeanor charge and a fine of $500.
