Daniel Radcliffe has revealed he battled the bottle while filming the Harry Potter series. The 22-year-old actor admits he drank himself through the 2009 film Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. The actor tells the U.K’s GQ magazine, “I became so reliant on [alcohol] to enjoy stuff. There were a few years there when I was just so enamored with the idea of living some sort of famous person's lifestyle that really isn't suited to me. Radcliffe says he’s lucky the paparazzi never cottoned onto his drinking and caught him in the act. Nowadays Radcliffe lives a quiet life away from the bottle. He says, “As much as I would love to be a person that goes to parties and has a couple of drinks and has a nice time, that doesn't work for me. I do that very unsuccessfully. I'm actually enjoying the fact I can have a relationship with my girlfriend where I'm really pleasant and I'm not f--king up totally all the time. There's no shame in enjoying the quiet life. And that's been the realization of the past few years for me.” Radcliffe has been sober since last August.

Penis Size Linked to Finger Length

A new Korean study has linked the size of a man’s fingers to the size of his package. The study, conducted by researchers at Cachon University in Incheon, Korea and published in the Asian Journal of Andrology, found that men “whose index fingers are shorter than their ring fingers may have longer penises.” The study involved 144 men who had their index finger and ring fingers measured. The men then had the size of their stretched flaccid penis measured while under anesthesia. The penis measurement was then compared to the “digit ratio” of the fingers. Tae Beom Kim at the urology department of Gachon University Gil Hospital writes, “According to our data ... the shorter index (second) finger than ring (fourth) finger you have, the longer stretched penile length you have.” Past studies show “that prenatal testosterone is responsible for both traits (penile length and digit formation).”

Woman Tragically Passes Away at Roskilde Festival

In what seems to be a pretty tragic summer for music festivals, things just keep getting worse. This past Sunday at the Roskilde music festival in Denmark, a woman died after falling from a very high tower with a fellow concertgoer. According to police, the twenty-something female died after falling from a 98-foot tower in the festival's camping grounds. The other male involved in the accident was only mildly injured in the fall. The pair were apparently up on the tower for an aerial cable ride in conjunction with the fest. Police have yet to name the two involved and how the fatal accident actually took place.
