I have a friend* who is about to get a vasectomy, and it turns out, it’s a ridiculously involved process, presumably because of Religionists.
First, you have to get not one but two “mental health” exams, because the assumption is that if you are under 40, single, don’t have kids, and don’t want to have kids, you must be crazy.
Giggles abound in the video.

The rarest gorilla on Earth, the elusive Cross River gorilla, has been caught on film by a hidden camera trap for the first time ever.[…]
In a movie-worthy moment (at about 1:10 in the video), a massive silverback gorilla suddenly races along the forest path, beating his chest.
Seconds later (at about 1:18), another gorilla lopes across the frame; the animal is missing a hand. The wound appears to be healed, but could have been caused by a hunter’s trap, according to a statement from the Wildlife Conservation Society, the group that captured the rare gorilla video with one of four camera traps set up in the Kagwene Gorilla Sanctuary.
Oh what I wouldn’t give to be a gorilla or Weaver in the midst.

In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.
That’s because college football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned. A radical solution, yes. But necessary in today’s times.
Almost half actually cost the schools money.

Published in 1963, the book was a startling departure from the sweetness and innocence that then ruled children’s literature. “Wild Things” tapped into the fears of childhood and sent its main character — an unruly boy in a wolf costume — into a menacing forest to tame the wild beasts of his imagination.
Librarians banned the book as too frightening. Psychologists and many adults condemned it for being too grim. But a 1964 Los Angeles Times review echoed many critics: The “aggressive flight of fantasy” was “the best thing of its kind in many a year.”
I never watched the movie, the book has a certain childhood significance to me and I worry the film would spoil that.

Star Wars characters invade these famous works of art and a bonus picture of The Office reimagining the painting “A Sunday Afternoon”.
Nothing but good.

The full “super Moon”, scientifically known as a “perigee moon”, rises over Los Angeles, California May 5, 2012. A “super Moon” lit up Saturday’s night sky in a once-a-year cosmic show, overshadowing a meteor shower from remnants of Halley’s Comet, the U.S. space agency NASA said. The Moon looked especially big and bright, because it reached its closest spot to Earth at the same time it was in its full phase, NASA said. Below, the full moon rises behind a mosque as birds fly in Amman.
Totally forgot about it, crossing my fingers the sky clears up tonight.

If you’re planning a trip to the dentist, it might not be the wisest decision to make your appointment with the person with whom you just broke up.
A Polish woman is facing three years in prison after she removed all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth during dental surgery just days after their breakup.
“I tried to be professional and detach myself from my emotions,” Anna Mackowiak, 34, told the Austrian Times. “But when I saw him lying there I just thought, ‘What a bastard’ and decided to take all his teeth out.”
Never screw with a woman scorned.
