These were the only two books featuring boys he had:

>Boys Will Be Boys included pictures of boys, many naked, in various non-sexual activities such as climbing a tree or sitting on a bench. The book had an inscription reading, "To Michael: From your fan. Love XXXOOO Rhonda – 1983, Chicago."[57] Another book, The Boy: A Photographic Essay was inscribed, "Look at the true spirit of happiness and joy in these boys' faces. This is the spirit of boyhood, a life I never had and will always dream of. This is the life I want for my children. MJ." The book contained pictures of boys in various situations by different photographers, including pictures taken during the filming of the 1963 Lord of the Flies movie and showed the boys on the set, usually clothed but sometimes nude, playing in the sand, reading comic books, and having pillow fights.[58][59] The only book depicting male sex acts was a rare out-of-print book called A Sexual Study of Man which featured many images of adult men engaged in all kinds of homosexual intercourse which the prosecution admitted they could not tell if Jackson had opened.[57]

Others are books like this:

In a library like this:

With hetero porn like this:

Photo of Spence was reportedly of him as a baby/toddler.

And Liberace's lover can barely keep a story straight for a week.

He even tried to accuse MJ of sexually abusing him at one point... even though he is older than MJ. Oh yeah and now he was with MJ as he toured with Thriller across Europe, with that famous European Thriller tour MJ... didn't have.

Men have three major sexual cues. Tits, ass, and sperm competition. The penis is important due to it's role as a sperm delivery system and thus it is a major sexual cue and synonymous with sperm competition. Sperm competition is a sexual cue because of the word competition. Competition, in the sexual realm at the very least, gets us guys all riled up. "Who's that bitch been fuckin' while I was gone!" The site of a penis in the context of sex triggers desire in the brain. Not for the penis, but to increase desire for the female in order to guarantee it's our sperm that impregnates and not the other dude. Hardness of the erection, sperm production and various other biological triggers pop in such a circumstance. Cuckold porn is popular for this reason. Why would a man get hot wathcing another man fucking his wife? Because it triggers all that shit and makes the sex more enjoyable. Yeah biology!

If you'll notice there are no huge dicks in female targeted pornography. The obsession with penis is a male thing, not a female thing. Most females wouldn't give two shits about the penis. The shemale, or tranny, (both are offensive terms BTW) is a part of male fantasy. It targets all three major male sexual cues.

For further interesting reading regarding this subject consider: A Billion Wicked Thoughts

It's not a the greatest book in the world, but studying sex is very difficult in our culture and they've done the best they can with what we've got. =)

P.S. I am not an Amazon affiliate.

Edit: I meant cues and not for everyone to start lining up in queues. =P XD

Edit 2: I don't remember it being as prevelant in the book but as the video linked in logcats' post below mentions the feet are a fourth major sexual cue.

I would highly recommend picking up some TVP. The stuff does a pretty good impression of ground beef in a lot of recipes, especially if you add flavorings. Yesterday I made up a batch of it, mixed it with some smashed canned beans and taco seasoning, and it made DELICIOUS veggie tacos. It's also, obviously, a great source of protein.

u/rebelkitty · 20 pointsr/WTF

I did.

I mean that, quite literally. I "named the parts" (meaning external genitalia, using correct terminology) when they were toddlers. Then both my kids got a thorough series of lessons around kindergarten/grade one that covered the finer details of human anatomy. From top of head down to their toes and not skipping any of the bits in between. They loved the digestive system!

We also covered how babies are made, and what happens at puberty, in those same first lessons. My daughter (then five) was fascinated by menstruation, which was a bit awkward when she'd occasionally decide to start a conversation about it in public places, like on the city bus.

A lot of other stuff (boys and girls, men and women, sexual assault, gay rights, issues of consent and legal age, etc...) worked its way in over the years, just in general conversation. We never missed an opportunity for discussion, and the evening news was always a great conversation starter.

It also helped that our church has a very thorough sex ed program, though my daughter walked in there already knowing more than was on the curriculum. My son spent more time with his fingers in his ears going, "La, la, la, I can't heeear you!" than his sister did, so I think the church program was more educational for him.

These are the books we (and our church) used:

My teens know this stuff, inside out and backwards. I made darn sure they did, because I didn't when I was their age and it landed me in some hot water.

And it seems to have worked! My 17yo daughter's applying to university to start training be a midwife next year. She already knows more than most adults know about sexual health. And my son's managed to stay out of trouble. I have every confidence he'll, at an absolute minimum, always use a condom. :)

Salt is a necessary nutrient. Without it, you will die. Most of us get enough salt in their food, and don't need to add any.

In the interior of India, however, there is no salt in the soil, so plants don't supply it, and it IS necessary to supplement the diet with it. For that reason, there was a regular trade in salt from the coastal areas to the interior.

Enter the British Raj, which put a tax on salt. Thanks to the cost+tax of salt, Indian farm familes would spend as much as 1/3 of their monetary income for salt.

That high tax caused a trade in tax-evaded salt being smuggled to the inland. To stop or slow the smugglers, the British planted a hedge around the interior.

It's the subject of an extremely fascinating book. The hedge was virtually forgotten, and most of it has been replanted, or covered with roads, etc. The author spent an obsessive amount of time to retrace the hedge, which was the longest in the world. He eventually found some of it thanks to an elderly monk who was a highway robber before he spent a long time in prison.

FWIW, there are some unbelievably long "forest strips" in Russia, which aren't that different -- just bigger.

EDIT: Wow, thanks for all the upvotes, everybody.

To add a bit to the story, it's interesting how the author "discovers" the hedge while working as a curator of historic records in London. He just stumbles across a paragraph in some report that merely mentions that the hedge is coming along quite nicely. He then expands that atom of information, hardly a sentence -- into a fascinating book that touches on British Imperial policy in general as well as India, the physiology of our need for salt, and what happens when we don't get enough; he gives examples of salt taxation in various historical episodes, and gets into the history and culture of India, past and present. It's one of the most fascinating and readable books I've read in the last 20 years, and it's inspiring as well, because it shows the rewards of pursuing your curiosities.

Here's a website with more detailed information

There are some great books available that make talking to kids about sex and reproduction really easy.

It's Not The Stork! and It's So Amazing! offer some great discussion of the biology of everything and leave plenty of room for you to insert your own morality! There's never a good reason to leave kids in the dark about biology and sexuality. I've been reading these books to my son since he was about 3 years old. They're cute, accurate, accessible, and worthwhile.

u/bnb2011 · 6 pointsr/WTF

Yes, its about critical thinking based off of popular pop fiction, there is an X-man one, a harry potter one, and a Monty Python one. Each one has its charm and critiques how the popular pop fiction shaped our current culture. Honestly Rebecca Housel (one of the authors) is a great professor I had while in college. I would even go as far as to recommend reading the book even if you hate twilight such as myself.

Nobody has mentioned it here, so you all need to know about this stuff called "Barkeeper's Friend." It is a miracle cleaner and many people don't know about it. It's not that easy to find in stores (or it's relegated to the bottom shelf); I usually buy it from Amazon.

Without being there to see it in person, it's hard to judge...but it looks like some of that could be hard water stains, not just dirt/y. You know how sometimes toilets get that brown stain that doesn't go away when you flush...hard water stains. They are horrifyingly difficult to get out, build up over time if you don't stay on top of them and look disgusting. The reason that people can usually live with it is because though it looks dirty, it's not usually slimy (although sometimes people just get discouraged with it and stop cleaning at all...perhaps some of that is going on). The reason I don't think your friend is necessarily completely gross is because the little counter right next to the shower looks to be pretty pristine AND because the "dirt" doesn't go all the way up the shower.

Buy the Barkeeper's Friend for your friend and follow the directions...make a paste, it's an acid so wear gloves if you have sensitive skin, let it sit for a couple of minutes, then scrub it off. It works on ceramic, vinyl and fiberglass. Brown hardwater stains come out like you did a freakin' magic trick. If this truly is hardwater stains, you could have that all cleaned up in like 10 minutes. Even if prior scrubbing with bleach, scrubbing bubbles, ajax, magic erasers or any other commercially available cleansers didn't work.

Post an after picture for karma!!

Edits: grammar, clarity

TL;DR: Barkeeper's Friend. More than 160 five star reviews on Amazon. It's true. It's a miracle, and your grandma should have told you about it. It's been around since the 1880s for some reason.

And you'll definitely not want to read Parasite Rex. 320 pages of NOPE by Carl Zimmer. Actually, you'll be glad you did. Fascinating book.

u/Scheckschy · 2 pointsr/WTF

Also noticed the 'Whats Your Poo Telling You' in the bottom left. They seem like wonderful people.

u/USER418 · 54 pointsr/WTF

TVP is a great meat substitute. Not WTF material in the slightest.

u/germandoerksen · 1 pointr/WTF

Since people are asking, I found some good ones to buy on amazon. I didn't link the one tapakip was talking about, but all you need to do is type in "dashboard camera" in the search bar.

Here's a cheap $40 one, does 720p only, but good ratings.. the 1080p cheap cameras had bad reviews.

Here's a more expensive one that replaces your review mirror, good reviews as well

u/cultured_banana_slug · 2 pointsr/WTF

Parasites are really fascinating. If you want a neat book on them, check out Parasite Rex. It sucks to be an insect.

u/throwaway12381983409 · 1 pointr/WTF

This stuff is cheap, and removes rust very well, without leaving scratches:®-Cleanser-Polish/dp/B000V72992

Don't buy it online, though - it's like $2 in the grocery store!

u/egehrman · 1 pointr/WTF

The amazon page and hilarious reviews/user photos of that horse head, here.

u/jamangold · 8 pointsr/WTF

You can get it from Amazon in the "Health and Personal Care" section.

u/Ontolodox · 1 pointr/WTF

I know you weren't asking me, but this delightfully informative bathroom reading material shared that little nugget with me.

u/hey_n0w · 1 pointr/WTF

Read Parasite Rex by Carl Zimmer and you'll gain a new, albeit weird, appreciation for the complexity of parasites.

Now, mosquitoes aren't parasites, but it'll answer/complicate your question as to "do they serve any purpose in the ecosystem" [Spoiler: yes]

u/captain_zavec · 1 pointr/WTF

I believe it's in the full anthology. He said in the sidebar that he pulled some from the website to make the book more special, and this one probably came out after the other book was published.

New one is here:

u/camn · 5 pointsr/WTF

Come on dude, you couldn't Google it?
[](/fluttershh "I hope that didn't sound too mean")

u/ariz2797 · 1 pointr/WTF

I pull stuff like that out of my ear every 6 months or so. As someone well experienced in the ear wax, get yourself one of these:
It's pricy but well worth the penny and you will never have ear wax problems again

u/odd_affilliate_link · 69 pointsr/WTF

Looks like they have them on Amazon and... Mother of god... I need one of these.

u/TheGunsOfBrixton · 9 pointsr/WTF

I'm pretty sure I remember seeing this one on the website back in the day. I suspect some of them may have disappeared from the archive as a result of him publishing a book.

u/angeliqu · 8 pointsr/WTF

Ever heard of the cookbook Natural Harvest? It’s kind of amazing what people will write and what gets published.

u/DarlingDestruction · 12 pointsr/WTF

I have the same problem. Ended up finding this thing on Amazon. It's the same one my doctor uses every time I go in to have my ears cleaned, so I figure, why not save myself the hassle of an appointment with the doctor and spend the $30 to do it myself. Mayhaps it will help you, as well.

u/ReLiC71 · 1 pointr/WTF

Check the Used & New page as well, and the reviews for the stuff listed as Customers Who Viewed This Item Also Viewed

u/sub_surfer · 0 pointsr/WTF

I didn't delete it, and I can still see it, but when I look in incognito mode it is deleted. Probably a bug in reddit.

EDIT: Here the text of the comment, which I just copied.

Apologies in advance if this breaks rule 1.

Also, link to the book in question on Amazon.

u/nitzua · 196 pointsr/WTF

here are the amazon customer reviews for the book, which are an absolute goldmine in their own rite.

u/funnynickname · 5 pointsr/WTF

Amazon sells them (obviously, when you think about it). Cheaper too.

u/SashkaBeth · 21 pointsr/WTF

This is the one my eight-year-old and I borrowed from the library (following many years of asking questions and getting age-appropriate factual answers). Nothing wrong with having all the facts.

u/bhknight1987 · 9 pointsr/WTF

Actually, check out what other customers bought with their purchase of the love doll. That's more what the fuck than the doll

She must have this book in her pantry.

u/Gurn-Blanston · 1 pointr/WTF

Yup. Horse head mask is awesome. Check out the reviews and especially the user photos.

u/MachetePhil · 1 pointr/WTF

alternatively wear the Accoutrements Horse Head Mask in place of Kermit mask.
