The uncanny resemblance between Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog, the Green Lantern film finds a director, and the 47 sexiest Sports Illustrated swimsuit models of all's the Mantenna!

Make Love, Not Porn

A new website hopes to educate young men on the difference between porn world sex and real world sex. The site breaks down common porn practices and explains why they don’t necessary exist in the real world. The site was created by Cindy Gallop because she was tired of having sex with younger guys who learned to be intimate by watching hardcore porno. [Make Love Not Porn]

Christian Bale and Kermit the Frog – Separated at Birth

A Livejournal user went through the internet and got 200 pictures of Christian Bale, and then he got 200 pictures of Kermit the Frog, and he matched them up perfectly. It’s eerie that the pictures are so similar, but it’s way more eerie that this guy did it.  Wanna see Kermit in an adorable cap and scarf in the snow like a Welsh schoolchild? Wanna see Christian Bale looking exactly the same way next to Kermit?  Then this post is for you, my friend. [Uncoached]

Green Lantern Finally Finds a Director    

So it’s looking like this Green Lantern movie might actually get made. At this point Martin Campbell is in negotiations with Warner Bros. to direct the film – and lest we forget, Campbell is the guy behind Casino Royale, GoldenEye, and Vertical Limit. The script by Greg Berlanti, Marc Guggenheim, and Michael Green is already set to go, so at this point all that’s needed is a director for the full package. Will Campbell be able to take a less-than-exciting comic book hero and infuse some excitement into the project? Will fans be happy with this turn of events? Most fans are probably just going to be happy that this project is getting revived in the first place. []

50 Cent has reportedly put his music career on hold to focus on some new products designed for men who like to be "pampered." The line will include a moisturizer and night creams. A source said: "Fifty prides himself on having a ripped body… he’s on a health kick and barely touches alcohol." What a thug. []

Chad Kroeger Abandons Appeal Of Drunk-Driving Conviction

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger has abandoned his appeal of a drunk-driving conviction. The so-called ‘rock star’ had a blood-alcohol level almost twice the legal limit when he was pulled over in his Lamborghini in suburban Surrey in June 2006. Kroeger was acquitted of an impaired driving charge, but convicted on the charge of driving with a blood-alcohol level over .08. Kroeger said outside his sentencing hearing that he doesn't condone drinking and driving, and that he made a mistake. [Red Deer Advocate]

National Safety Council Says 2008 Traffic Deaths Hit Record Low

According to an annual report published by the National Safety Council, there were 39,800 deaths last year related to motor vehicles in 2008. That's a whopping 8% improvement over the last year. A trifecta of factors has conspired to cut traffic fatalities in 2008 to these record low levels. First, people are cutting back on driving in general. But our vehicles themselves are also getting safer, as proven each year by the number of new vehicles that ace NHTSA and IIHS crash testing. Other likely contributing factors are public education and the visible enforcement of safety laws. [Yahoo! News]
