Them boyos Jedward are a right shower of fuckers
Professional lurker, unlurking to check this out. NOBODY look over here.
Just a point of interest, as a student of criminology, that the terms 'sociopath' and 'psychopath' are not interchangeable.
A sociopath is someone molded by experiences that reinforce antisocial behavior and antisocial morality. It is a learned pattern of behavior that results in a disregard for the feelings and rights of others, up to the point of justifying violence, murder, and all manner of illegal or morally questionable activity. Antisocial norms are internalized as a result of a dysfunctional social environment. Example: Tony Soprano.
A psychopath is an individual who, by result of an organic brain dysfunction, exhibits severe antisocial behavior including disregard for authority, violence, a total lack of empathy, and a pattern of dishonesty. Not all psychopaths (or sociopaths) are violent, though their inability to empathize with others virtually guarantees life-course persistent interpersonal difficulties. Example: Ted Bundy.
If you're over the age of 20 ... 15 ... 13? then I should imagine that the mystery surrounding an unclothed nipple has already vanished for you.

45. Because Peter Dinklage is 100% bangable. And that's 2% more than Sean Bean.
Reasons that Jersey Shore fans will not buy this comic.
1) Their hair slime and spray tan laden fingers will ruin the collectors value.

5) Can't fist pump while holding a comic book.
6) Can't be used to stuff ones crotch due to risk of paper cut.
Here's the best way to deal with flight anxiety. Half an hour before flight, take 2 Benadryl, then help yourself to an inflight drink or two. That plane could explode into a thousand fiery pieces and you wouldn't even know it until Saint Peter throws a bucket of water in your face because he's tired of stepping over your ass to unlock the Pearly Gates.
I did this myself on a recent flight back from Las Vegas, and woke up as we were pulling in front of the concourse. My Dad looked over at me and said "we fell a thousand feet out of the sky and you slept through it." Apparently the plane had been hit by lightning and we lost power. I say apparently because I honestly have no idea
So Jason Alexander's comment re cricket as a gay sport led me to assigning sexualities, genders, and personalities to various sports a la Axis Powers Hetalia. I'm totally shipping Cricket (a wealthy Englishman who dresses like a dandy and is firmly heterosexual - trust me, he tried it at Eton during his A-levels and it did nothing for him) with Hockey (an outspoken American tomboy who goes high femme once in awhile but can't be bothered most of the time).
Rugby is gay, though, and relaxed about his sexuality. He suspects American Football is in the closet but won't press him on it.
Butterfield 8 ball.
And to celebrate June, Rob just turned you all bi.
It's a confusing day for Pajibans, but rest assured: Godtopus doesn't love you any less.
