    British try to ban ‘extreme’ porn

    Extreme porn as defined by the British:
    is grossly offensive, disgusting or otherwise of an obscene character” and portrays in any way an act which threatens a person’s life, or which results or appears likely to result in serious injury to someone’s genitals or breasts.

    Battle lines drawn over Bill to ban ‘extreme’ porn

    To some people it is exactly the kind of protective legislation that Britain needs in a world where access to a vast array of pornography is available at the click of a mouse. To others, a new law banning “extreme” pornography gives the Government unprecedented powers to police bedrooms (and basements).

    Opponents have no problems with two provisions banning images of bestiality or necrophilia – both of which are already illegal to do – but fear that the other definitions are so vaguely worded that even images of consenting adults engaging in fictional violence will now be outlawed, giving Britain the toughest anti-porn laws in Europe.

    Worst. Christmas. Ever.

    For most children, Christmas involves at least a little disappointment. You go to sleep thinking about it every night for weeks, the people on TV make it look like it’s going to be awesome and in the end, all you have to show for it is a bunch of ugly clothes thrown everywhere.

    Some Christmases are worse than others. We asked you to try to imagine the worst Christmas possible. As always, the winner is below, but first the runners up.
