Free Sex With Coupon

I've got a golden ticket!

Copenhagen Mayor Ritt Bjerregaard sent postcards to city hotels warning summit guests not to patronize Danish sex workers during the upcoming conference. Now, the prostitutes have struck back, offering free sex to anyone who produces one of the warnings.

(Full story here; CHT BMB.)

What does it say about me as a crusty cynic that my first thought on reading this story is to picture summit guests paying off Mayor Bjerregaard and saying, “Thank you for getting us the free sex”?

No, I’m not saying I think it’s a likely hypothesis – just that it’s the first thing I thought of.

You Must Be This Tall to Overthrow the Government

officially approved anarchist

“Do you or your organization directly or indirectly advocate, advise, teach or practice the duty or necessity of controlling, seizing or overthrowing the government of the United States, the state of South Carolina or any political division thereof?”

If so, fill out a “Subversive Agent Form,” listing your organisation’s core beliefs and the names of all your members, and send it along with $5 to the South Carolina secretary of state.

I am not making this up. I can’t tell whether this form is genuine, but the enabling legislation certainly is. (CHT Kevin Carson.)

You’ll Believe a Man Can Dance

Iron Man? Watchmen? The Dark Knight? Forget ’em.

The greatest superhero movie ever is here – and it’s a DC/Marvel crossover, with cutting-edge special effects that make Avatar look like sock puppets and flashlights. I still can’t figure out how they’ve done these magnificent flying sequences. Check it out:

Liberate San Francisco!

Alliance of the Libertarian Left

Charles Johnson is both inviting participants and raising money for the Southern Nevada branch of ALL to have a presence at the Bay Area Anarchist Bookfair next month. This is an outreach-to-the-antistatist-left event, to complement the outreach-to-the-antistatist-right event we’ll be involved in a month later.

I wish I could go, but I’ll be in Prague. But – want to go to San Francisco and hang out with anarchists? Or want to donate for this worthy cause? Details here.
