Breedster. A cross between Friendster, tamagoitchi and an ant colony A new game by Dutch game maker drunkmenworkhere, known for his zero-content games and experiments just presented his latest game: Breedster. Here you have to keep your avatar alive by eating and defecating, and create new offspring by fornicating with others. But you have limited amounts of energy so you have to keep coming back to do those things. It can be quite an experience if somebody has fornicated with you when you were asleep. It sometimes feels like a virtual rape. So this game is a social experiment as well. Breedster is, just like Orkut, by invitation only but I've been a heavy breeder during the last days and have quite a few eggs to spare. So send me an email with subject "Breedster" (to keep my filters happy) if you want to take a look and I'll sign you up.
Native American Trickster Tales In the Native American oral tradition, the vulgar but sacred Trickster assumes many forms. He can be Old-Man Coyote among the Crow tribes, Raven in northwestern Indian lore, or, more generically, "The Tricky One" (such as Wakdjunkaga among the Winnebago or Manabozho among the Menomini), to mention just a few of his manifestations.

Russian Prison Tattoos. "It is not known when tattooing first became a common practice in Russian prisons and Stalinist Gulags. Soviet researchers first discovered and studied this underground activity in the 1920s; photographs of prisoners from that period suggest an already elaborate and highly developed subculture. More than simple decoration, the images symbolically proclaim the wearer's background and rank within the complex social system of the jailed." Via Geisha Asobi. more inside
