Googling For Porn Makes You Absent Minded?

from the well-that-explains-it dept

With China trying to stop Google from helping internet users find pornography, it appears that China has picked up its propaganda campaign. Boing Boing points us to the news that a guy quoted as part of a “man on the street” interview by China’s state-owned TV news network claimed that searching for porn online can make you absent-minded:

“I have this fellow student and he’s been curious about these kinds of things. He visited porn Web sites and ended up becoming absent-minded for a while.”

Very convincing. Apparently, lots of other people weren’t convinced by the guy’s performance, and looked into his background… and discovered that he just happens to be a student intern at the very same TV news network that was asking the questions. So, if you can’t find a man on the street to give you the answers that you want, apparently China finds someone they can coach.

ejaculation possibly causes memory loss

Back when I was in high school, a morning radio host did a talk on whether it’s true that ejaculation can cause memory loss. The big deal was that high school football coaches told their guys that they couldn’t bang their groupies from wednesday through friday (until after the game) because ejaculation can cause memory loss, and the coach didn’t want the players forgetting key plays.

Some people who claimed to be doctors called in to comment, and the general consensus was more towards that this is true. Now, seeing as this was the radio, I’m not sure it is actually true, but I know that some people experience short term hearing loss, fatigue, and other ailments shortly after coitus. So, it is possible that subsequent to porn browsing, one may be “absent minded.”

This happens more often than you think. There was an article way back when regarding people trading in SUV’s and buying smaller cars. One of the people ‘interviewed’ had nothing good to day about the pratice, and MINI Coopers. She lied about how much headroom was in a MINI, and came up with the stupid statement that as small cars take up less room on the road, then there will more pollution, because you can fit more small cars on the road then large cars.

Umm, ya.
