Steven Seagal's Sex Slaves

Say what now?

Steven Seagal is accused of hiring young women as personal attendants whose real job was to serve his strange and sometimes violent sexual desires, according to a civil lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles by a 23-year-old former model who describes her experience in harrowing detail.

The plaintiff, Kayden Nguyen, said she met the action star in February through an ad on Craigslist seeking an executive assistant and, after three interviews, was told to pack for a trip to New Orleans, where the A&E show "Steven Seagal Lawman" was taping.

When she arrived, the lawsuit says, she discovered that Seagal had been keeping two young female Russian "attendants" who were essentially on-call for sex -- 24-seven.

On that first night, Nguyen was ushered to a secluded house where Seagal was staying with his wife and the two young women. He then proceeded to treat Nguyen as his "sex toy" despite her complaints, the lawsuit says, responding to her terror as he fondled and manhandled her by saying, "Relax, we won't do anything special tonight ... I'll save that for another night."


And it just goes on and on with more bizarro details. Nguyen only filed a civil suit, asking for over $1million. Odd that she didn't file criminal charges.

Mostly, it's all fucked up and a little too strange to believe. But then again, it is Steven Seagal. I've seen bits of that cop show he did. He's a strange guy.

Down with Daylight Savings

I hate having to change the clocks twice a year. It's stupid. And it never seems to be a good change. It always seems to result in it being darker either when i'm waking up or when i'm driving home or both. I keep hoping the US will eventually realize it's a stupid practice and just stop doing it altogether. So, yay, Russia!

Russia puts forward its clocks for the last time this weekend.

Leading the way in an incipient global trend that rejects the notion of changing the clocks in spring and autumn, the Russian authorities believe the move will reduce human - and animal - misery.

It means Russia, which stretches across nine time zones from Kaliningrad in Europe to the Kamchatka peninsula in the Pacific, will stay permanently on summer time from this Sunday, gaining extra daylight in the afternoons during its seemingly interminable winter.

The president, Dmitry Medvedev, said Russians were fed up with the time changes because they caused "stress and illnesses" and "upset the human biorhythm".

"It's irritating, people wake up early and don't know what to do with themselves for the spare hour," he said. "And that's not to mention the unhappy cows and other animals that don't understand the clocks changing and don't understand why the milkmaids come to them at a different time."


Arkady Tishkov, a geography professor and member of the working group that advised cancelling twice-yearly time adjustments, said they provoked a litany of problems, including disruption of sleep patterns, aggravation of chronic diseases and increased traffic accidents.

"During the period of the clocks changing, the number of heart attacks increases by 50% and the number of suicides by 66%," he said. Crime will also drop when the clocks are not put back in October because thieves are less active during daylight hours, Tishkov added.

Do you know how many time zones there were in the Soviet Union? Eleven:

Beware the Initios of April

Just a reminder, as you can tell from the snow, today is April Fool's Day, which is going to make reading blogs really annoying.

I did think this one was a good one, though, even if it's an older joke.
