Why do all old statues have such small penises?

Ever wonder? How To Talk About Art History has the answer.

Firstly, they’re flaccid. If you compare their size to most flaccid male penises, they are actually not significantly smaller than real-life penises tend to be.

Shira Ovide and Leila Abboud, writing for Bloomberg, on the music industry’s love/hate relationship with YouTube:

More than half of Internet users in the U.S. listen to music on YouTube — by far the most popular access point — but YouTube is responsible for only 4 percent of revenue to the industry, according to a music industry trade group.

ROAM Gassed and Burglarized in France

ROAM were burglarized in France after being, apparently, gassed while they slept in their van.

They took all our cash; show fees, merch money and personal money, but fortunately didn’t steal anything else.

Safeguard for iTunes Coming Next Week

Apple has given a statement about that “iTunes deleting your music” bug:

In an extremely small number of cases users have reported that music files saved on their computer were removed without their permission. We’re taking these reports seriously as we know how important music is to our customers and our teams are focused on identifying the cause. We have not been able to reproduce this issue, however, we’re releasing an update to iTunes early next week which includes additional safeguards. If a user experiences this issue they should contact AppleCare.

I’m not sure how they safeguard against a bug they can’t reproduce. Weird. Think they know about the bug that keeps showing me “intro to New Found Glory” in the “for you” section?
