RoadGay Belarus websites under threat from new government rules: "The decree signed by President Lukashenko give to government agencies the authority to block websites which are releaying 'extremist information' however, in the light of next year's President election many sees the law as a way to shut down any disturbing opposition websites. The law also comes into force in Belarus after the internet has become increasingly popular and widely accessible."

"Call them Twinkles: preteen boys who may not know they are gay yet, or may not want to say they are gay yet, but who have a gleam in their eye and a definite sensibility. Twinkles proudly prance, unashamedly emote, high-kick, jazz-hand, belt out 'Paparazzi' with piano — everything a gay kid used to do in his bedroom with the door shut."

They then introduced one type of liver cells called hepatocytes which successfully repopulated the scaffold.

Researchers conducted various medical tests on him. The research team, consisting of 35 scientists, could not find any evidence that Jani ate or drank anything during the 15 days."

RoadTeagagged: How the Tea Party is tied to the Deepwater Horizon disaster. "…there’s another, more concrete reason why the Tea Party revolutionaries melted back into their suburbs as soon as the enormity of the Gulf spill disaster hit: The Tea Party evolved out of the pro-offshore drilling astroturf movement in 2008. They even share some of the same organizers and front groups, from PR operative like Eric Odom, to advocacy groups like FreedomWorks, whose combined efforts on the “Drill Here! Drill now!” astroturf campaign succeeded in opening up all of America’s coastlines and waters to offshore drilling, overturning a 27-year ban thanks to threats of 'a Boston-style Tea Party,' as one Republican put it in the summer of 2008."

    gandhi fasted for 21 days in his seventies. However, he drank water, as one can only go about six days without water. I have difficulty taking the observations and research of this seriously. If you want rigor, keep him under observation for a month. Then again, I don’t believe that the observation was as careful as the researchers claim. hoax.

  2. gayalltheway says

    I know that some of you might say “You are just jealous!” but I don’t find Zac Efron sexy or goodlooking at all. Especially after seeing his ridiculously small feet (for a man) on SNL. Ugh.

    He is no Daniel Craig.

  3. Terrance says

    I dunno about Zac. I’ve gotten so used to seeing him as the High School Musical supertwink, that seeing him as anything else is positively foreign…!

    Seeing that ridiculously-huge bod on him leaves me conflicted. Part of me likes the muscles and hopes he enjoys them (take up surfing, maybe? And why not? The H$M money, if invested carefully, should last him a long lifetime…!); part of me dislikes the muscles and wishes he’d go *back* to ‘slender twink’…!

    In any case, I think he must have completely hate-hate-hated the ‘skinny twink’ look: he got rid of it so dang fast (looks like he started powerlifting the nano-second filming stopped!)…!

    Not that it’s any of my, or anyone else’s business what goes on this blog, but I feel as though Andy demeans himself by continuing to report on this Indian fraud. A quick search of the term “Epoch Times,” where the article comes from, reveals the information that this newspaper was founded by radical members of the Chinese spiritualist Falun Gong sect, and numerous commentators have noted that it is little more than Falun Gong propaganda. It’s no coincidence that the link at the bottom of the article (at least when I read it) was for a website called “” which purports to help us “jump into any reality [we] desire… for real!”

    Of course, anyone who wishes to become a Breatharian is welcome to jump on the bandwagon and stop eating and drinking, thus becoming eligible for a Darwin award. Google or wiki “Jasmuheen” for information on this very enlightened form of suicide.

    Oh, and Zac Efron is hot.

  5. Mr. E says

    Tank, I agree. I call total bullshit on this yogi. I want to know what kinds of tests they’re running (earlier reports said they were using EKG’s and EEG’s!!?? Those tell you nothing about his biochemistry). How rigorous were they keeping an eye on him? ’35 scientists’ my ass. I’m sure most of these ‘scientists’ are actually of this yogi’s same religion and probably a little fanatical about it. I want to see the DATA!

    Zac Efron looks ridiculous in those huge, heavy swimming trunks. Put some Speedos on, you silly boy. Those ugly big shorts you’re wearing soak up an incredible amount of water and will drag you down should you get into any difficulty.

  7. Randy says

    Please stop spreading the hype about this yogi. He was NOT under supervision 24 hours a day. He was NOT confined to his room. He DID have access to water. Tests HAD found evidence of urine and feces (which require somewhat recent water and food to produce) inside his body at the time. Blood work indicates periodic dehydration and starvation, followed by normal values. The man is a fraud, and so are the “doctors” and “scientists” who promote his claims despite strong evidence to the contrary. Otherwise, they’d be eligible to receive the million-dollar prize from JREF for proving he did it. Towleroad should be deeply ashamed.

  8. Jordan says

    That this blog is trying to pass off the “Epoch Times” and the Daily Mail as serious sources for rigorous scientific investigation is an embarrassment. Way to promote superstition and nonsense.
