Mathematics Is Definitely Sexy!! Video and Photographic Confirmation!!

Danica McKellar (better known as Winnie Cooper on The Wonder Years) has made a switch from actress to mathematician… and what better way to promote her new book than (wait for it)…. taking her clothes off!!

This will be Danica’s third book and is titled, “Hot X: Algebra Exposed“. It will be available in August.

She says that her books are intended “to help girls who (believe) that stigma that math is only for guys or you have to be a nerd to like math”. The transcript from her interview with Maxim magazine (which accompanied her raunchy photo shoot) can be read at the bottom of this article.

Danica, who has been married for just over a year and is expecting her first child, says that she “finds guys with good maths skills sexy”.

Now for some very amazing mathematics in my opinion – Danica McKellar is 35 years of age!! WHAT!!??

Transcript from Danica’s interview with Maxim Magazine:

Did you have fun at your Maxim shoot?

Are you kidding? So much fun! There was a smart-and-sexy schoolgirl theme going on, so it was awesome playing dress-up.

How did you go from child actress to math goddess?

When I got to college, I was intending to study film. But I found that my brain was feeling mushy, so I took a few math classes. I started doing really well at them, and solving equations was this, like, drug rush.

A drug rush from math?

It’s true! Then, after graduation, an article came out about a paper I’d coauthored in which we proved a new theorem. From that, I was approached to write books, and I knew I wanted to help girls not be afraid of math. My latest, Hot X: Algebra Exposed!, is coming out in August.

That’s quite a 180 from The Wonder Years.

I realized I needed to find out who I was outside of that show. My whole life people called me Winnie Cooper, and it was important for me to find out what else I had to offer.

Can math be sexy?

Totally! If a guy is skilled at anything, that’s attractive. There’s something very primal about that, and, sure, it can be as simple as figuring out the tip quickly.

What else turns you on?

Confidence is one of the sexiest things in guys and girls. Look at Michelle Pfeiffer: My God, she’s 50 years old, but she is still so sexy. If I were into women, I would be totally into her.

Now, everyone remembers when Winnie and Kevin first kissed. Was that your actual first kiss?

It was, yeah, for both of us. I was 12, and he was 11. That was only about a week after we’d met, and we totally had crushes on each other. But we never kissed offscreen, ever.

You must meet guys who hit on you because of your famous role.

I’ve always been really cautious about guys who have a Winnie Cooper fantasy, and I’m so glad about that. I mean, I can count on one hand the guys I’ve been with. It was really challenging, but I never gave it up too soon, if you know what I mean.

TWITTABOMBER – Be Careful What You Tweet, My Friends!!

TWEET, TWEET, TWEET, BOOOOOOM!!

British micro-blogger Paul Chambers (I’m calling him the ‘TWITTABOMBER‘) has tweeted himself out of a job and into a fine and conviction in a court of law.

According to Chambers, he was only joking when he posted a status update on Twitter boasting that he would blow Robin Hood Airport in Yorkshire (Northern England) “SKY HIGH” if his flight was delayed.

Instead of making people laugh, his ‘humour’ landed him in front of a judge at Doncaster Magistrates’ Court, who found him guilty of sending a ‘menacing electronic message’ and fined him £385.

Mr Chambers can now go down in history as the very first person in Britain to be convicted of sending an offensive tweet.

The ‘joke’ tweet was posted after Chambers got frustrated that the airport had been closed due to heavy snowfall. Airport authorities decided it wasn’t a credible bomb threat, but still passed the message on to police. They arrested him in January this year.


It then just got worse for the TWITTABOMBER, when as a result of his arrest and prosecution, was fired from his job as a company finance supervisor.

TWEET, TWEET, TWEET, BOOOOOOM!!

There’s Nothing Like….

The latest campaign from ‘Tourism Australia’ is absolutely brilliant!! But “There’s Nothing Like”… an Aussie sense of humour. That’s why it didn’t take long for a parody site to begin.

Check out the very, very funny “There’s Nothing Like…” images below, courtesy of http://www.nothinglikeaustralia.net (as opposed to http://nothinglikeaustralia.com).

The Discovery of Noah’s Ark (Video Included)

In the Christian Bible (book of Genesis), he is known as “Noah” and was said to have built the Ark before rounding up to of every species of animal in existence. In the Koran his name is “Nuh”, one of the key prophets of Islam whose wife is said to have died in the great flood.

Regardless of yours or my faith, for as long as I can remember, people have been on the hunt for the lost Ark, with the main focus on it’s biblical resting place – Mount Ararat in Turkey.

According to a group of fundamentalist Christians, there is a “99.9 percent” chance that the discovery of seven large wooden compartments beneath snow and volcanic debris, 4000 metres above sea level, is in fact the remains of Noah’s Ark.

Some wood taken from the site has allegedly been tested and has been dated by experts to 2800BC. If this really is the Ark, this discovery would be the greatest in the history of archaeology!!

The research team belongs to “Noah’s Ark Ministries International” and consists of Turkish and Chinese archaeological experts.

One team member, Panda Lee said: “I saw a structure built with plank-like timber… Each plank was about eight inches wide. I could see tenons, proof of ancient construction predating the use of metal nails… We walked about 100m to another site. I could see broken wood fragments in a glacier, some 20m long.”

In this video, there can be seen several compartments, doors and staircases. The wooden walls of the compartments appear smooth and curved, and appear to be cypress (according to the ‘literal’ Bible, the Ark was built from gopher wood).

The book of Genesis states that the Ark is the equivalent of 137 metres long by 23 metres wide and around 14 meters high (taller than a three-storey building, with a deck the size of 36 tennis courts).

So is it really Noah’s Ark? Only time will tell – some scientific experts are already offering up their skepticism on the alleged discovery. We’ll all be watching this one very closely indeed!!

Bali Gigolos – Cowboys in Paradise (Snippet of the Official Video)

You make up your own mind – is it prostitution or not?

The location – Bali, Indonesia.

The men in question – the so-called ‘Cowboys in Paradise’.

Some of the “cowboys” were featured in a documentary by Singapore-based writer and director Amit Virmani which was released at the South Korean film festival last week. Many snippets of the film (including candid interviews with “beach boys” and the foreign women who befriend them) have gone viral on YouTube.

Following the internet exposure, 28 of the cowboys have been detained, suspected of selling sex to female tourists. Indonesian tourism officials were livid after what they consider an attack on Bali’s image as a “family destination”.

According to the Chief of Police, “We’re always on the beach so we can guess which beach boy may be taking advantage of foreign women… arrests had been made in the past but the suspects had been released “with a stern warning”.

He goes on to say, “They will approach foreign female tourists, especially Japanese, on the beach, befriend them and the women will pay for their company and food during their stay here. Sex may be involved”.

However in the latest ‘crack down’, the Chief could not actually explain what charges the arrested “beach boys” could face. He also said that it would be hard to prove that they were in fact selling sex.

The suspected gigolos that were arrested, are described as “young, fit-looking and tanned, mostly surfer beach boys”.

Film maker Virmani, said that the boys are “proud of their ‘conquests’, of being desired by so many. They’re always game for a little kiss’n’tell once they know you“.
