James Bond Ruined My Sex Life
Huffington Post - about 1 year
By Jake Breslauer cross-posted with permission from Satirical Nonsense The first time I fell in love it was 1999. I was 11 years old, and the James Bond film "The World Is not Enough" starring Denise Richards had just come out. Not a particularly great movie, but my pre-teen self was enraptured by the beauty exuding from Ms. Richards, and it quickly became my favorite film. Job well done Hollywood. My childhood friends would tease me relentlessly for my undying love, and I would defend with vigor the honor of the woman of my dreams. So in my adolescent determination to secure my future, I pledged with certainty that by the time I turned 21, I would somehow find a way to contact Denise Richards and confess my love. A pledge that is becoming of a pre pubescent young man, but a quality that eventually evolves itself into a desperation to be loved as I fidget nervously behind a cute girl at a bar. I try to work up the courage to say something witty, clever, and original then have th ...

Charlie Sheen Reveals He's HIV-Positive
Huffington Post - over 1 year
Charlie Sheen revealed he was diagnosed as HIV-positive in an interview on the "Today" show on Tuesday.  The 50-year-old actor sat down with Matt Lauer and opened up about learning of the diagnosis four years ago.  "I would like to admit that I am in fact HIV-positive," he told Lauer. "I have to put a stop to this onslaught, this barrage of attacks and of sub-truths and very harmful and mercurial stories that are about me, that threaten the health of so many others that couldn't be further from the truth." Sheen went on to say he told those he thought he could trust at the time, but was ultimately mistaken, as he said that he's been extorted for "millions" of dollars in order to keep his diagnosis a secret.  "We're talking about shakedowns," the actor explained to Lauer and confirmed that a sex worker he hired took a photo of the anti-viral medication in his bathroom and threatened to sell the photo to the tabloids.  Sheen also said he's not sure how he contra ...

Why more Boston Marathon survivors oppose the death penalty
Yahoo News - almost 2 years
Two more survivors have spoken out against the death penalty for Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.
