Canadian scientists scrap pornography study Canadian scientists researching the effects of pornography on young men have had to scrap their plans, as they couldn’t find any young men who hadn’t watched pornography. Professor Simon Lajeunesse of Montreal University says he was originally hoping to compare a group of admitted porn users with a “control group” of men in their 20s who had never viewed pornography, but “we couldn’t find any.” Young, single men, he found, spent about two hours every week viewing porn on the Internet.Police arrest trucker for driving with cardboard windshieldA Chinese truck driver was arrested after he drove 400 miles with a sheet of cardboard covering the entirety of his broken windshield. Police said the driver, identified as Mr. Li, said he didn’t have time to replace the broken windshield, and punched some holes in the cardboard so he could see. Mostly, he drove by sticking his head out the driver’s-side window. Since the air was cold, Mr. Li’s face was bright purple by the time he was pulled over. Man abandons effort to produce milkA Swedish man has abandoned a months-long effort to produce milk from his own breasts. Ragnar Bengtsson, 26, was convinced that with daily, three-hour breast-pumping sessions, he could stimulate himself to lactate, thus liberating the mother of his child—and eventually women everywhere—from bearing the brunt of child-care responsibilities. Instead, said a Swedish news report, “all he got was sore breasts.”
