Sunday Scraps 11

1. SPORTS: In the wake of a whole bunch of sports-related gay friendliness, Charles Barkley added his two cents, “I’d rather have a gay guy who can play than a straight guy who can’t play.”

2. PUBES: Pornstar Ashley Blue just published a memoir, Girlvert. Fifty limited editions actually have one of her pubic hairs embedded in the cover. What ever will they do next?

3. FOOD: Guess how many calories in an average school meal? I’ll say this, it’s embarrassingly high and embarrassingly low in nutritional value. GOOD Magazine has a comparison between school meals and prison meals. Who comes out on top?

4. NEWS: This Newsweek piece does a good job of laying out the rising price tag of disaster journalism against the backdrop of slashed budgets, “Covering Charlie Sheen is cheap; covering Afghanistan is expensive. Boots-on-the-ground reporting may win awards, but it doesn’t pay the bills.”

5. GRAY: Oddity Central has a profile of Daphne Selfe, an 82-year-old supermodel whose career has only gotten hotter as her hair has gotten grayer.

6. TUBE: Ever wonder how the intricate televisions schedules are created every fall? Here’s everything you ever wanted to know about balancing the comedy blocks, crime dramas and reality drivel.
