Area 51 Has Been Renamed

The controversial US Air Force base in Southern Nevada known as Area 51 has finally been renamed by the Air Force to Homey Airport. For years it has been criticized by UFO enthusiasts as a possible location for UFO research activity by our government. The only thing I can't believe is that it took the Air Force this long to think about changing the name. Whoever is in charge of PR hasn't been doing their job. Maybe now the base will be able to shed its reputation. The full story is available through the link.


Throwing Herself At Men. Literally.

The pictures are fun to look at and also pose some interesting views on gender dynamics within our culture. Check out her website to see more of these interesting photos.
