This Just In: Halloween Midget Wrestling Videos

Costumekingdom.com is not just an online Halloween costumes retailer-- it is a purveyor of costumed midget wrestling videos. Watch some dude called Mini Pimp "Lo" duke it out against Dog the Bounty Hunter. At the end of the video, one of them will apparently be known as the roughest and toughest midget in America.

I kind of suspect that 'midget wrestling' is an un-PC term, but that's what the press release called it, so there it is.

Enjoy.

Depravity

Think about what you did last Saturday night. How depraved were your actions? You may soon be able to measure precisely how heinous your crimes were, using the Depravity Scale under development by forensic psychiatrist Michael Weiner, MD.

According to his website, the research has important implications for sentencing in criminal cases: "The Depravity Scale research is an international research effort that aims to scientifically standardize the definition of legal terms such as "heinous," "atrocious," "evil," and "depraved," which are currently used in the justice system to impact the severity of sentences," he writes. "This research will establish a consistent and fair distinction for the worst of crimes - incorporating input from the general public. Ultimately, the research will develop an operational Depravity Standard, which will assist judges and juries at the sentencing phase of trials."

No word on whether the Depravity Scale will be available to administer on a first date.

What I Had For Lunch Today

I just ran across a book on Amazon called No One Cares What You Had For Lunch: 100 Ideas for Your Blog.

How did this get published?

Let me clarify: if you're having trouble coming up with something interesting to say on your blog, you likely have a larger problem. And it'll take more than a book to fix it.

Boffo for the author of the lunch book, though. I hope they paid her a shit ton of moolah.
