There's now a pornographic magazine for the blind. It's co-ed which means the photographs feature both naked men and women. They're in 3-D, with Braille texts describing the bodies. The magazine is the brainchild of artist Lisa Murphy, who says the natural curves of the human body are easily replicated in Braille. She says (quote) "The blind have been left out in a culture saturated with sexual image. We're breaking new ground. I took photographs of my friends in lingerie, blew up the images, and hand-sculpted them into clay for a 3-D effect."
According to The Daily Beast, here's a rundown of the drunkest cities in America, based on the average number of drinks per person per month, the percentage of adults who are heavy drinkers, the percentage of adults who are binge drinkers and the number of deaths per 100,000 residents from liver cancer:
- Milwaukee, Wisconsin
- Fargo, North Dakota
- San Francisco, California
- Austin, Texas
- Reno, Nevada

According to police, a 23-year-old man was attempting to recreate the game “Frogger” when he was hit by an SUV.
Insert video game “woo woo woooooo” sound.
Cops said the Clemson, South Carolina man was aping the game or possibly a famous episode of “Seinfeld” during his venture.
The police report says that the man was discussing the game “Frogger” with friends when he decided to try it out.
The man then allegedly yelled “GO” and ran in the middle of a four-lane highway.
The driver of the SUV will not be charged. It’s unclear if the man was on any substances when coming up with this idea.
