Bad news: A major vulnerability has been disclosed for the technology that powers encryption across the majority of the internet. That includes Tumblr. Our team took immediate action to fix the issue, but you should still take some time to change your password, not only here but on any other sites you visit.
You should also strongly consider enabling two-factor authentication. It’ll go a long way to ensure that no one besides you can access your account. Thanks, and take care.
Ellen helps Conan master rolling in a hamster ball.
Late-night host and comedian Conan O’Brien is hosting the “2014 Movie Awards,” and “Extra” has a look at how the show’s rehearsals are going.
The video features O’Brien, actress Ellen Page, and a giant hamster ball.
A 21 year old guy had worn a pair of contact lenses during a barbecue party.(An event or meal at which food is cooked outdoors over an open grill or fire)
While barbecuing he stared at the fire charcoals continuously for 2-3 minutes.
After a few minutes, he started to scream for help and moved rapidly, jumping up and down.
No one in the party knew why he was doing this?
Then he admitted into the Hospital, the doctor said he’ll be blind permanently because of the contact lenses that he had worn.
Contact lenses are made by plastics, and the heat from the charcoal melted his contact lenses.
DO NOT WEAR CONTACT LENSES WHERE OVERHEATING AND FLAMES ARE CONCERNED…. OR WHILE COOKING…!
Spread this around because this sounds terrible as fuck!
This happened to a girl my dad knows. It was Halloween and she wore colored contacts to a bonfire and they melted.

This Is What Your Brain Looks Like When You Masturbate
It was only matter of time after the invention of fMRI scanning machines — which track blood flow in the brain — that scientists would start having people pleasure themselves while strapped into one. And so it was that New Scientist writer Kayt Sukel ended up with this delightful scan of her brain at the moment of orgasm.
Sukel worked with Rutgers University researcher Barry Komisaruk, who’s studying brain response during arousal and orgasm. Komisaruk has found that when many women achieve climax, their prefrontal cortexes (which are thought to govern “executive function” like decision-making) see increased activity. Its involvement, in particular when touches are imagined rather than felt, may indicate the use of “imagination or fantasy,” as well as the ability of the brain to perform so-called “top-down” control over the body.
But the PFC isn’t the only part of the brain that’s active — as you can see, Sukel’s brain saw activity in some 30 areas, “including those involved in touch, memory, reward and even pain.” Interestingly, another study of orgasm examined by fMRI showed decreased activity in the PFC. The difference between the two studies? Komisaruk’s investigated orgasm by self-stimulation, while the other featured subjects brought to climax by their partners — indicating that their may be a difference in how the brain functions in those difference scenarios.
