A Spanish anarchist that sometimes goes by the super-catchy name Anticlerical Pro Sex Toys Group says it sent explosive devices hidden within boxes of vibrators to prominent ultra-conservative Catholics in Spain, because nothing screams SUSPICIOUS when you re an abstemious cleric than receiving a shipment of sex toys. Then again…
According to Spain s state-owned news agency EFE, the anarchists have sent1 two such vibrator-cloaked mini-bombs. One of the devices exploded at a postal sorting office, slightly injuring a woman who was handling the package.
The group was targeting the Catholic archbishop of Pamplona, Francisco P rez, and the headteacher of a private school belonging to the extremely-conservative Legionnaires of Christ movement in Madrid. (The Legion of Christ was, by point of reference, founded in 1941 in Mexico by Marcial Marciel, who was accused of sexual misconduct in the 50s, 70s, and 90s, and eventually forced by the Vatican to retire to a life of penitence and silence in 2006).
Police in Spain believe that the group (which has also gone by the name Artisans Club for New Uses of Coffee) is also responsible for a bomb packed into a pressure cooker and left near the public prosecutor s office in Madrid, as well as a rudimentary bomb found in Madrid s Almudena Cathedral. These terrifying discoveries, reported in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombing, were appended with a warning from the anarchists that their Catholic targets could expect more packages in the future: Please accept our apologies. Next time we won’t fail.
Ever get the feeling sometimes that the world is just teeming with terrible people?
Anyone who makes us sympathize with the Catholic Church must be truly despicable.

FORT BRAGG, N.C. — An Army general charged with sexual misconduct has added civilian lawyers to his defense team. Brig. Gen. Jeffrey Sinclair appeared in a courtroom at Fort Bragg Thursday morning for a brief hearing on pre-trial motions. Sinclair faces court martial on charges that include forcible sodomy, indecent acts, violating orders and adultery. He has thus far deferred entering a plea. The Army has rebuffed public records requests from The Associated Press for copies of motions filed in the case by the prosecution or defense. Sinclair’s team has added four attorneys from the firm Montgomery McCracken, based in New York and Philadelphia. They asked military judge Col. James Pohl to delay decisions on the motions to allow the civilian attorneys to review the issues. Sinclair said he didn’t see any conflict and said the civilian lawyers pose no threat to his military lawyers’ career. He said he wants to keep the three military attorneys in addition to the new lawyers. Pohl denied a defense motion to disqualify the military prosecutors because they might have seen emails between Sinclair and his lawyers that were erroneously sent to them. The judge also set a June 25 trial date in the case. Copyright 2013 by WRAL.com and the Associated Press. All rights reserved.

Some helpful tips and dating Irish women
Photo by Google Images
Irish women are a force to be reckoned with. We have evolved through the decades into an independent, intelligent and ambitious race. However our rules of engagement can differ from norms here in the United States. So best to school yourself in our ways, means and desires before attempting to woo a lovely Irish girl.
Here are a few guidelines:
1.The Emerald Isle…Google it!
Ireland is a small island on the cusp of Europe. No we don’t live in the dark ages and yes we have electricity, the Internet and Sushi.
If you are going to impress an Irish girl then you need to have a scant knowledge of European geography. Before complimenting us on how well we speak English, take into account that it is in fact our first language.
Perhaps you have not been lucky enough to travel to Ireland, or venture to Europe. However one should express a desire to visit our green pastures.
2. Irish Heritage
Of course you’re Irish! Aren’t we all.
If you insist on telling the world that you have Irish heritage, then please do your homework. It is not OK to claim lineage and then fail to point out which county your ancestors hailed from. Even a guess is better than “Umm I think somewhere in the South”.
If you are tempted to lie about your lineage then throw some Mediterranean countries into the mix also. Maybe your half Italian/Sicilian.
3. Date settings
Where do you bring an Irish lady on a date?
For a first date the movies are out of the running. We like to talk, we are a nation of talkers. Loquacious to the core. So best to bring the lady somewhere you can have some good banter. Dinner, drinks maybe even a walk in the park.
Be imaginative. Use your extended knowledge of your home country to your advantage here.
4. Terms of Endearment
Try where possible to remain endearing without over use of nauseating terms such as honey, sweetie, baby, etc. You are just getting to know each other, chances are you don’t even know each others last names. No need for over the top labels.
Generally Irish women are not very good at taking compliments so go easy on the charm. There should be subtlety involved. If you tell an Irish girl she is beautiful, sexy etc they are not going to know where to look. Instead offer mild flattery such as “Your eyes are very pretty”. Our pale skin and freckles are a somewhat touchy subject especially when we are constantly surrounded by American bronzed goddesses. Do not point out the fact that even though it’s the height of summer we still look as white as a ghost.
5. Drinking habits
If by chance there is alcohol involved, take it easy on the gargle. You are not going to impress an Irish girl by getting rat-arsed. Chances are we can and will drink you under the table. So before disaster, admit defeat and take it one drink at a time. In Ireland, light beer is seen as a woman’s drink so perhaps don’t order a Bud Light!

Well, well, well, twice in one month we’re talking college football on our relationships blog1. But this time, instead of being mildly amused/creeped out, we’re completely confused and horrified.
Brief background, for those who haven’t been obsessing over the story like the rest of the country: Manti Te’o is a star linebacker for Notre Dame, who helped lead them to play in the national championship game. He did so despite two back-to-back tragedies, the death of his grandmother and the death of his girlfriend, Lennay Kekua. But wait just a minute: Lennay Kekua never actually existed. Deadspin broke the story yesterday2, revealing that the photos of “Lennay” were actually of a woman they identify as “Reba.” There are no records of Lennay Kekua, her death, or her burial.
Um, WHAT? Baffled yet? Me too. In light of the report, Notre Dame called a press conference3, in which the school’s athletic director, Jack Swarbrick, actually cried while defending Te’o. Swarbrick said that Te’o had been the victim of a hoax, which he learned about in December. Te’o released his own statement, saying “”This is incredibly embarrassing to talk about, but over an extended period of time, I developed an emotional relationship with a woman I met online. We maintained what I thought to be an authentic relationship by communicating frequently online and on the phone, and I grew to care deeply about her.”
So, it appears the university and Te’o are now saying he never in fact met Kekua. However, previous media coverage of their relationship referenced the looks and handshake they exchanged at their first meeting, and quoted Teo’s father as saying the couple had met up in Hawaii. Something doesn’t add up.
Clearly, there is a lot more information to be uncovered before this will make any kind of sense. But as a person who regularly engages in both social media and online dating, to say I’m confused and skeptical is an understatement. There are just so many red flags here that I can’t believe one person, let alone an entire family, team, school, and media system didn’t catch on sooner. Maybe I’m just an overly paranoid online dater, but I personally would never communicate online with a guy for more than a few weeks without meeting in person, not to mention I’m a firm believer in some pre-date online stalking (I always do a Google image search to try to confirm the guy is a real person). I’ll try to reserve judgment until the entire story is more clear, but needless to say, I’ll be fascinated to see what the full investigation reveals. And I think we can safely assume the phones of the guys from Catfish are straight up ringing off the hook (check out their tips for spotting online liars here4).
What do you make of the Manti Te’o story? Do you think he was the victim of a hoax, or is there a bigger scandal going on here? Have you ever had an online relationship with someone you hadn’t met in person?

Does anyone know of any stories where Jared and Jensen are matched up through an online dating site and meet up and start a relationship? I’ve read a lot of stories where they form a relationship and communicate via email, IM, txt, and other electronic forms of communication before they finally meet, but I’ve never read one where they meet through an actual dating site. I also wouldn’t mind a Sam/Dean story like this if you know any, as long as it is non-AU and they are still brothers, like they didn’t know the other had signed up for online dating and didn’t know they got paired with each other till they met. I’m open to anything involving Dean and Sam being gen and/or cracky. I also don’t care about underage or big age gaps, so if one is really young and exploring the internet that’s fine with me. Almost all kinks are fine with me, really. I’m crossing my fingers for anything remotely similar to any of this, so if you know of anything that sorta fits but not really, rec it anyway! Thanks!
France-based Meetic is acquiring 100 percent of the company, which owns6 online dating site Twoo.com7 and social network Netlog8, for a total price of 18.9 million euros (approximately $25 million) in cash.
The purchase price excludes any earn-out based on future performance over the next three years.
Belgian entrepreneurs Lorenz Bogaert and Toon Coppens originally founded the company behind Netlog (once hailed as the ‘MySpace of Europe’10 and backed by 5 million euros from Index Ventures an Atomico before getting steamrolled by Facebook) back in 2003.
When Netlog (previously called Facebox and Bingbox) started caving11 under the pressure from Facebook and other social networks like Spain’s Tuenti and The Netherlands’ Hyves, they tried to spin off a gaming site12 called Gatcha, but that didn’t pan out either.
Twoo.com, a place for meeting new people and flirting online in 38 languages, proved more successful, leading to last week’s acquisition of the whole of the company behind the social dating site.
Meetic, which is 81 percent held by IAC, says the purchase will add to its portfolio of services across Western Europe, enable it to expand to Eastern Europe and experiment with a freemium model while bringing in ‘social virality expertise’.
He adds: “What Google is for Internet search, IAC is for online dating. They have far more resources than we do. When giants like them see a company in their space gaining traction, it can go both ways. Either you stand and fight while they clone your service, or you explore an alliance.”
It remains to be seen what will become of Netlog, the non-dating focused social networking service operated by Massive Media, that had close to 100 million users in its heydays.
