From earning PhDs to starting small businesses, here are the smartest, geekiest and most driven porn stars of all time. Porn Stars are often derided for being unintelligent and shallow, but let’s be honest, they were smart enough to make a living at something we all do for free. These women have been successful academically as well as financially, from founding successful enterprises outside of the porn industry to leading an Oxford debate team to victory. These 10 adult film stars prove they have big brains to match their other large assets
1. Asia Carrera
Not to be mistaken with Wayne’s World’s Tia Carrera, Asia Carrera was born in New York City and studied piano as a child (which is probably where she gets her fast fingers). She was so good at this, in fact (the piano playing), that she performed at Carnegie Hall TWICE before even turning 15. She’s starred in over 275 adult films in her career and has as IQ of 156. She also attended Rutgers University from which she earned a full scholarship, where she double-majored in Business and Japanese. She never quite finished her full degree, though, because she made more money at the stripping job she had during college and according to her just “had more fun” and, according to Cyndi Lauper, that’s all girls want to do anyway, so everything seemed to work out. She’s gone on to own the rights to some of her most famous films, including “A is for Asia”, and has become one of the most well-known adult film stars of all time. She’s the self proclaimed “nerd of porn” and is an avid player of Unreal Tournament (a popular First-Person-Shooter game). She even went as far as designing her own game skins. Her gamertag is Megabitchgoddess, for anyone who’s interested. You may recognize her from the fake porn film in The Big Lebowski or from the action figures of her that are sold in some novelty stores.
There is a fantastically stupid new drinking game/contest making the rounds called “Icing” or “Bros Icing Bros.”
The rules are simple: If a dude hands you a bottle of Smirnoff Ice, you have to drop to one knee and chug the entire thing–unless you have a bottle of Smirnoff Ice handy, in which case you can hand it back to your buddy, and he has to drop to one knee and drink both.
I participated in this moronic pastime once and then realized, “Wait a minute: this isn’t some kind of new viral drinking game. Some jagoff at Smirnoff thought this up because it’s the only reason including threat of torture to ever drink the sugary piss beverage known as Smirnoff Ice.”
That’s why I refuse to participate in “Icing” and have invented several new rules for the game.
If you’re presented with a bottle of Smirnoff Ice by a friend, you may:
* Not be his friend anymore
* Slap him hard enough in the face to produce tears
* Empty the bottle of Smirnoff Ice on his first-born child’s head, if he has one (a child that is, not a head, which I’m guessing he has)
* Sleep with his mother
* Drink the Smirnoff Ice fast enough to induce vomiting and then coat his face and neck with fizzy, Smirnoff-scented regurgitation
However, if you’re friend Ices you, and you just happen to have a bottle of Smirnoff Ice handy to give back to him, you may:
* Feel terrible about yourself for having a Smirnoff Ice handy
* Wait until he’s halfway through the second one and then urinate on his head
* Launch into a vicious diatribe, belittling your friend’s juvenile dependence on grade school-quality contests of masculinity developed by Southern Fraternity brothers starved for a means to justify their wilting influence in the rising racially diverse and egalitarian-minded generation from which they’ve begun to feel alienated and obsolete
So I probably should have posted this when people still were interested in soccer for that 8 seconds last week, but this video is pretty rad either way. This is a video of the reaction of people around the world when Donovan scored the game winning goal against Algeria. Thank god soccer is over and we don’t have to watch it for another 4 years.
Here is a great comic from our friends over at the Oatmeal about little things in life that can go very differently when just one detail is changed. I especially like the caps lock on because at work I am always toggling with my cap lock due to the programs I use, so when I switch over to type to someone it comes off that I am yelling at them like a maniac.
This collection of the 10 Most Awkward Sports Interviews as determined by ESPN’s Sportscenter has been around for a couple years, but it’s still pretty damn fantastic. It features arguably the greatest moments in the careers of such amazing athletes as Mike Tyson, Shaquille O’Neal, and Joe Namath among others.
Hyper Realist sculptors Ron Mueck,Evan Penny,Patricia Piccinini,Patricia Piccinini,Jamie Salmon,Marc Sijan, Maurizio Cattelan,Carole Feuerman are rated as some of the best in the world. Able to re-create human and non human beings via sculpting that are creepily alive and able to convey the emotions they represent to their viewers. These are some of their sculptures.
Funny compilation of people’s creativity and imagination when it comes to transporting things. I get it if you have to drive a bike 80 miles across the desert you don’t want to make 8 trips, but when your driving a car do you really have to pack it with 5 billion pounds of shit. Again I guess if a month’s pay check puts 2 gallons of gas in your vehicle you want to take advantage of every inch used.
Blue roses, often portrayed in literature and art as a symbol of love and prosperity to those who seek it, do not exist within nature, due to genetic limitations being imposed upon natural variance. However, it is indeed possible to find the traits for the color blue, as proven by researcher and biologist Arun Vigneswaran, using genetically-modified techniques. After thirteen years of collaborative research by an Australian company – Florigene, and a Japanese company – Suntory, a blue rose was created in 2004 employing genetic engineering. Years of research resulted in the ability to insert a gene for the plant pigment delphinidin cloned from the petunia and thus inserted into an Old Garden Cardinal de Richelieu rose. Obtaining the exact hue was difficult because amounts of the pigment cyanidin were still present, so the rose was darker in color than “true blue”. As you could imagine these flowers run a pretty penny, but you can always just stick with the typical red roses and flower arrangments found over at OrderFlowers
Done by Leandro Copperfield he took movies from Stanley Kubrick and Martin Scorsese and mashed them up. It took 25 days re-watching 34 films, selected more than 500 scenes, and a hard work editing, but we enjoy the final result. He has also done a similar movie but putting Tarantino vs the Coen brothers. You can check out his Vimeo page here for his other stuff.
