Darn Kids–Turn Down That Stereo!

One Ohio city is contemplating a law that we think might have some legs.  Apparently, car stereos being blasted at unreasonable levels are a bit of a problem in Lorain, OH–so the City Council has passed a new law that would increase fines for offenders, and give police the option of removing the stereo from offenders’ vehicles.  The mayor is considering the law now.

That’s right–if you don’t play by the city’s rules, they’re going to take your ball and send you home…or something like that.

Personally, as someone who gets rather annoyed when he’s forced to listen to the heavy techno bass of some douchebag who thinks spending more on his sound system than his vehicle while I’m enjoying a nice day with the windows down (or sometimes even with them up), I think this law makes sense.

Maybe not for first offenders, but if someone can’t take the hint the first time someone suggests turning down the noise…

Hugh Hefner Files for Divorce

More than 10 years after separating from wife Kimberly Conrad Hefner, Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has filed for divorce.

Hefner is asking a judge to order him to pay $20,000 per month in spousal support–half what he is currently paying–for two years, or until a divorce trial can be completed.

Hef and Kimberly Conrad were married in 1989, the same year she was named Playmate of the Year.  They separated in 1998, and Kimberly moved into a house that Hefner owned directly next door to the famed Playboy Mansion, where Hefner has lived with numerous girlfriends in recent years, as chronicled in E!’s reality TV series “The Girls Next Door.”

Records show that Conrad Hefner, who had two sons with Hef, filed for divorce around the time of separation, but that petition was later withdrawn.  She sued him last month, claiming he owed her more than $4 million under the terms of their prenuptial agreement, and from proceeds from the sale of the house next to the mansion earlier this year.

Hef told TMZ that he had been happy to get the divorce at the time of the separation, but that he had remained married at the request of Conrad Hefner, for the sake of their sons.

16-Year Old Girls Can’t Sail, Either

Many 16-year old girls are excited to get their drivers licenses, so they can start terrorizing the roads while texting their friends (often whom are probably in the back seat).  But one 16-year old girl from Australia wasn’t satisfied with that–she decided to become a terror of the seas.

Attempting to become the youngest person to sail solo around the world, Jessica Watson got off to a bit of a rough start when her yacht hit a 63,000-ton cargo ship on a preliminary 10-day solo journey from her home port to Sydney, where the voyage around the globe was set to kick off.

No word on whether she was texting her friends at the time of the crash.

Amazingly, her parents and supporters plan to let the trip continue, once the boat is repaired.

Driver Gets 56 Tickets in 13-minute Pursuit

In what might be a new record, 21-year old Joshua Bracci of Greece, NY, was given 56 traffic tickets by the Greece Police Department and State Police after leading officers on a 13-minute chase through town, at speeds reaching approximately 111 MPH.

Greece also managed to hit a parked car, and back into a squad car during the pursuit, and also drove with his lights off trying to evade arrest.

In addition to the 56 traffic tickets, he has been charged with driving while intoxicated, first-degree reckless endangerment, first-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, reckless driving, unlawfully fleeing police, resisting arrest, criminal mischief, and leaving the scene of an accident.

Want Porn? There’s an App for that…

With the launch of the 3.0 iPhone from Apple comes an important development in the long term future of the medium–the ability to download a porn application (yes, there finally is an app for that).

Previous versions of the iPhone did not allow pornographic material, going so far as to block an app that allowed for book downloads because it could be used to download the Kama Sutra.

However, this new version of the iPhone allows for age restrictions on apps–so if some kid is dumb enough to say he isn’t over 17, he won’t be able to download the Hottest Girls app, which features “2200+ images of topless, sexy babes and nude models.”

Unfortunately, Wired magazines strangely detailed review of the app (where do I get THAT job?) says the app is pretty much terrible, from a porn connoisseur’s point of view–but now that the word is out, you know that there will be other companies looking to take advantage.
