Who Wants to Go to Vegas?


What happens in Vegas won't be staying in Vegas, if companies like VR Bangers have their say. The charmingly named company is behind the latest amenity offered at some Las Vegas hotels, where guests can shell out just $19.99 to use a headset programmed with interactive, virtual reality sex scenes, billed as the "VR Bangers Hotel Experience."

"You will then choose a girl or guy of your choice, and see your hotel room replicated in the VR headset, making the experience much more realistic," VR Bangers said in a statement. "Next you will hear a knock on the door (in the virtual reality world), and the girl or guy will come into your room in order to enjoy an erotic or sex experience with the viewer."

Yup. 3-D porn. The next frontier. I'm pretty sure there's not enough disinfectant in the world to sanitize the visor enough for the next patron to use safely. Will it come with a tarp? There should be a tarp.

Meat-Eaters: Contributing to the Superbug Problem


Antibiotic-resistant "superbugs" are on track to kill more people than cancer, the UK's chief financial minister will warn Thursday.
Wenonah Hauter, executive director of Food & Water Watch, for example, said in 2013, "Right now, 80 percent of the antibiotics used in the U.S. are used for industrial agriculture, and most of these drugs are routinely fed to animals to make them grow faster and compensate for filthy conditions. This is done to help the meat industry execute on its highly consolidated business model for profit. And the American public pays through antibiotic-resistant infections."

Plus, there are still doctors who prescribe antibiotics to "see if this works" when someone shows up at their office sick. Stupid doctors.
