    Washington, D.C., residents watch more porn than the rest of America: study • Research from PornHub.com says residents of the nation’s capital watch 14.18 online videos per person in a year. Hawaii is second, with 7.57 per year. Politics has always been dirty, but a new study takes the expression to a level so stimulating that it’s hard to believe. Residents of Washington, D.C., watch nearly twice as much online pornography as people in any of the 50 states, according to a study published by XXX site PornHub.com. Horndogs in the nation’s capital consumed online pornography at a rate of...

    Mario Barth may be the only tattoo artist who admits that getting inked hurts. While many artists and even some customers insist the process is pain-free — some even say it feels good — Barth has become famous to the extent that he can call it like he sees it without risk of turning away customers or rankling others in the business.

    The list of people banned from Las Vegas is a litany of dishonour. But among the swindlers, fixers and mobsters — many of their mugshots displayed on the Nevada Gaming Commission’s website under the heading Excluded, Wanted & Denied — is a new and rather unlikely name: that of Barack H. Obama, of Washington. “I want to assure you that when he comes [here], I’ll do everything I can to give him the boot,” growled Oscar Goodman, the Mayor of Las Vegas, before Air Force One swooped down over Sin City’s infamous “Strip” for a presidential visit that was expected...

    Article Launched:09/14/2007 06:33:21 AM PDT LAS VEGAS—O.J. Simpson was questioned about a casino hotel room break-in involving sports memorabilia, police said Friday. The break-in was reported at the Palace Station casino late Thursday night, police spokesman Jose Montoya said. He said the break-in involved sports collectibles, but he declined to elaborate.

The Heisman Trophy winner, ex-NFL star and actor had been scheduled to give a deposition Friday in Miami in a...

    SYDNEY, Australia - A movie fan had his nose bitten off outside an Australian cinema in an argument over the quality of the violent new Bruce Willis movie "Sin City," police said. The 19-year-old victim underwent surgery to reattach the tip of his nose following the brawl Sunday night outside a movie theater in Bathurst, 125 miles west of Sydney. Bathurst police Inspector Cameron Lindsay said the victim and his attacker got into a fight over the merits of the film, an adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel about a wicked metropolis filled with tough guys and gorgeous dames. The...

    As news of Pope John Paul II's death dominated the weekend, moviegoers appear to have vindicated recent accusations that America is plagued by what religious radicals call a death culture—a charge lobbed by President George W. Bush in the wake of the Terry Schiavo case—by flocking to the ultra-violent Sin City. A mostly monochromatic, digitally-rendered noir picture adapted from comic books by Frank Miller (Robocop 2) and co-directed by Robert Rodriguez (Spy Kids) and Miller, Sin City gorged on a gluttonous $28.1 million weekend estimate at 3,230 locations. Pre-release industry tracking was comparable to Constantine, another R-rated comic book adaptation,...

    Comedian George Carlin, 67, known for his shockingly obscene monologues got himself in trouble in Las Vegas recently – but not because of his filthy mouth. In the his last performance at the MGM Grand after four years before 700 paying customers, he reportedly said: "People who go to Las Vegas, you've got to question their f-----g intellect – traveling hundreds and thousands of miles to essentially give your money to a large corporation is kind of f-----g moronic. That's why what I'm always getting here is these kind of f-----g people with very limited intellects." But that's not the...

    LAS VEGAS, Oct. 5 -- For a decade, the crowds gathered every night outside the Treasure Island casino on the neon-washed Vegas Strip to watch a simulated pirate battle between two full-sized galleons. With cannons booming, ships ablaze, and acrobatic sailors plunging from the mastheads into a flaming lagoon, the live show was a spectacle that thrilled children of all ages. But this fall, Treasure Island has closed its famous "Battle of Buccaneer Bay." After major refurbishments, the nightly extravaganza is to reopen Oct. 21 -- as a ship-borne girlie show. The hotel says those diving acrobats will be replaced...

    Virgins Meet in Sin City, Tout Abstinence By CHRISTINA ALMEIDA The Associated Press Sunday, June 29, 2003; 7:54 AM LAS VEGAS - In a city known more for sin than virtue, a group of virgins from around the country gathered this weekend to send a message: wait until marriage. It was a clash of the "Good Girls" and the sin-seekers as about 200 teens, parents and youth counselors descended on the Strip to pass out cards promoting abstinence. "What better place to bring this than Sin City?" said participant Deanna Grimm, 24, of Sioux Falls, S.D. "They need to hear...
