    The records of Democratic Presidential Candidate John Kerry's 1988 divorce from Wall Street heiress Julia Thorne were unsealed yesterday, revealing that Kerry has always been a condescending and uninteresting prick. It is uncertain whether revelations of sexual "JFK" role-playing and narcissistic orgasms will hurt his presidential campaign. Unlike Jack Ryan, whose Senate campaign was derailed when his divorce records revealed that he pressured ex-wife Jeri Ryan to attend sex clubs, Kerry's divorce records reveal a rather pedestrian, if not somewhat ego- and Kennedy-centric sex life. Thorne swore under oath that Kerry, "often made me dress up like Jackie O ['Nassis]...

    Why have we not heard anything about Sen. John Kerry’s former wife, the mother of his daughters? What can you tell us about her? When divorced, remarried, etc.? - P.S., Lebanon You probably haven’t heard anything about her because she’s an exceedingly private person. Kerry married the former Julia Thorne, a Philadelphia heiress, in 1970 in Bay Shore, N.Y. They honeymooned in Jamaica. As you note, they had two daughters, Alexandra in 1973 and Vanessa in 1976. The couple separated in 1982 at a time when Thorne was battling a deep depression and contemplating suicide. "After 14 years as a...

    Friends say the union of John Kerry [related, bio] and Julia Thorne was a rousing love affair when they met at Yale - he a dashing 19-year-old, she a bikini-clad babe and twin sister to Kerry's best friend. But for a political marriage, it was a dud and it ended badly. It couldn't have happened at a worse time for the budding politician's career, the summer of 1982, just as Kerry emerged as a serious candidate for Massachusetts lieutenant governor. Kerry later called the divorce a ``super-painful process'' and laughs off his bachelor days as the loneliest time of his...

    The Future According to Professor Paul Davies "Scientists have no doubt whatever that it is possible to build a time machine to visit the future". Since the publication of Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity in 1905, few, if any, scientists would dispute that time travel to the future is perfectly possible. According to this theory, time runs slower for a moving person than for someone who is stationary. This has been proven by experiments using very accurate atomic clocks. In theory, a traveller on a super high-speed rocket ship could fly far out into the Universe and then come back...
