If one were to examine the penis objectively-please don’t do this in a public place or without the other person’s permission-and compare the shape of this organ to the same organ in other species, they’d notice the following uniquely human characteristics. First, despite variation in size between individuals, the erect human penis is especially large compared to that of other primates, measuring on average between five and six inches in length and averaging about five inches in circumference. (Often in this column I’ll relate the science at hand to my own experiences, but perhaps this particular piece is best written without my normally generous use of anecdotes.) Even the most well-endowed chimpanzee, the species that is our closest living relative, doesn’t come anywhere near this. Rather, even after correcting for overall mass and body size, their penises are about half the size of human penises in both length and circumference.
Anyone with OCD- don’t click the link. Scientists have found over 200 species of bacteria on skin.
I probably shouldn’t have told you that, should I.
The government wants sex offenders to register details of their "online identity" to keep them from visiting sites popular with youngsters. They’re called aliases for a reason, and there’s no law of the internet that says you must have only one. Any technically adept kiddy fiddler is going to find a way around this scheme with ease. It might work if they logged IP addresses or took the dubious step of installing spyware, but those can be circumvented as well.
It feels odd to be applauding The Sun for anything, but their publication of cockpit footage from a friendly fire incident is gutsy. Whoever leaked the video is even braver, I can’t imagine the US military being lenient on anyone who highlights their arrogance and fear of scrutiny.
