Rocking us like a hurricane of creepiness: There's controversy raging over at Wikipedia about -- of all things -- a 1976 Scorpions album. The cover of the album, "Virgin Killer," features a naked prepubescent girl. (The album cover was banned in the States and replaced with a picture of the band.) The debate is about whether the image constitutes child porn and should be deleted from Wikipedia or has historical/artistic merit. The Scorpions? Historical/artistic merit? (A censored version of the image can be found at Gawker.)
Tell it to my face: A recent study suggests that if you want to convince a woman of something, you should do it face-to-face. Unlike men, who responded similarly whether they were receiving information online or in person, women were more likely to be persuaded when "they were able to form a bond through eye contact, facial expressions and gestures, the researchers found." All I can say to my fellow sisters is, when Scientologists approach -- stay strong!
