NFL Network lists Reed’s beard in top 10 all-time

by Accidental Bear

I would eat lunch off that beard and even take it home to meet mom and dad. Sports news these days are starting to look like Bear events with beards exploding everywhere.

One of the biggest sideshow attractions at Tuesday’s Media Day circus was Steelers defensive end Brett Keisel, who issporting a beard that makes Zach Galifianakis‘ facial hair look like a little scruff. The beard has become so legendary, it actually got interviewed by FOX Sports’ Alex Marvez.

“It’s really not that itchy,” Keisel told Marvez on Tuesday. “I shampoo and condition. It’s actually pretty soft. People are pretty surprised when they touch it. I’ve gotten used to it.”

Keisel’s beard inspired NFL Network to rank the top 10 beards in NFL history, and the homeless man’s beard of Ravens safety Ed Reed was seventh on the list. “Deion [Sanders] nicknamed him ‘The Soloist,’” host Rich Eisen said before making a reference to Bill Cosby movie from the 1970s.

You can’t embed videos from NFL.com — which might be a good thing because it spares you from Eisen’s snark overload — so check the list out at this link to see visual evidence of said beards. Or if you’re too lazy to click that link, I’ve got the full list after the jump. Discuss:

10. Ed “Too Tall” Jones

9. Jeff Saturday

8. Jake Plummer

7. Ed Reed

6. Shaun O’Hara

5. Randy Moss

4. Franco Harris

3. Lyle Alzado

2. Dan Fouts

1. Brett Keisel

Diamonds For Valentines Day says, ” I don’t care!”

by Accidental Bear

Come on now. First off we have to live through those god awful commercials of porn stars moonlighting from their film careers to do these oh so sparkly jewelry ads. Their hands twirling in indian type dance gestures show casing bracelets, rings and ahhh belly chains encased in diamonds ( ooh sparkle). These commercials claim to make everything ok and gay ( by that I mean happy). I couldn’t think of a more unoriginal, uncreative, thoughtless present than diamonds. Cliche to the max and TO ME even the most expensive of diamonds look cheap. Giving a diamond means, ” I don’t care to put the energy into finding something special, or have the time for you, but here’s some chump change to tide you over and give appearance that everything is OK.

Male Nudes, Re-invented; EAST VILLAGE BOYS

by Accidental Bear

Please join us in celebrating Valentines Day a ‘lil early at the “I Heart Boy” Book Release Party! Including an OPEN BAR, featuring The Rude Dudes a live performance by BABY ALPACA, art, and lots of FREE goodies!!!

I HEART BOY
Photographs by J. Yatrosfsky
Introduction by Weston Bigham

With an erotic softness and quiet confidence, the young, fully-nude subjects in I Heart Boy exhibit a willingness to be celebrated by all for their beauty and openness. Posing in the intimacy of their own homes, often in studio apartments in Manhattan’s East Village and Lower East Side, lanky, hairless bodies are posed sensually against the minimalist backgrounds of naturally lit rooms with sparse furnishings.

Welcome to today’s gay ideal of the male nude, an aesthetic with nods to Larry Clark and the 80s underground music scene, and appreciated by the likes of designer Hedi Slimane, American Apparel, and the most popular indie bands from New York, L.A., London, Paris, and Berlin. Yatrofsky’s waif-like men—merely boys just a few years ago, bordering on androgynous, with an occasional tattoo and a bit of punk swagger to match their youthful naiveté—hardly resemble even the shadow of the beefcake of generations past. This is the undressed and carefree look of today’s urban trendsetter—whose style trickles out of the young, creative circles in cities, only to be copied elsewhere tomorrow.

With each photograph, these sexually charged images of male bodies invite the viewer to dwell upon the welcome tenderness of warm skin. Ultimately I Heart Boy is a series of nudity in the purest sense; of being simply bared as human before the world.

Dog outperforms lab test at detecting cancer

by Accidental Bear

 

I want a doggie to follow me around smelling my crap, breath and urine telling me things like,” Drink more water. You need some beta- carotene, eat some carrots. Or YOU HAVE CANCER!” I use to think cows were aliens and for awhile I thought giraffes were ( just look at them). Now I am convinced without a doubt that dogs are aliens , here to save the world!

Dog outperforms lab test at detecting cancer

A black lab named Marine can scent bowel cancer in breath and stool samples as accurately as hi-tech diagnostic tools.

Japanese researchers reported a “lab” breakthrough: A black lab named Marine can scent bowel cancer in breath and stool samples as accurately as hi-tech diagnostic tools.

The findings support hopes for an “electronic nose” one day that can sniff a tumor at its earliest stages, they said.

Researchers led by Hideto Sonoda at Kyushu University inFukuoka, Japan, used the specially-trained female black labrador to carry out 74 “sniff tests” over a period of several months.
Each of the tests comprised five breath or stool samples, only one of which was cancerous.
The samples came from 48 people with confirmed bowel cancer at various stages of the disease and 258 volunteers with no bowel cancer or who had had cancer in the past.
They complicated the task for the eight-year-old canine detective by adding a few challenges to the samples.
Around half of the non-cancer samples came from people with bowel polyps, which are benign but are also a possible precursor of bowel cancer.
Six percent of the breath samples, and 10 percent of the stool samples, came from people with other gut problems, such as inflammatory bowel disease, ulcers, diverticulitis, and appendicitis.
The retriever performed as well as a colonoscopy, a technique in which a fibre-optic tube with a camera on the end is inserted into the rectum to look for suspect areas of the intestine.

Atlantis Events, which is leasing the ocean liner, claims the seven-night voyage to Mexico and Haiti is the largest gay cruise ever. What could be more pleasant than boarding an enormous moving vessel packed with a small stadium’s worth of possible hook ups?
