7,500 Online Customers Sold Their Souls

Do you carefully read the terms of use page when completing an online purchase? Maybe you should. The online computer game retailer GameStation revealed that hidden in its terms of use statement is this clause:

By placing an order via this Web site on the first day of the fourth month of the year 2010 Anno Domini, you agree to grant Us a non transferable option to claim, for now and for ever more, your immortal soul. Should We wish to exercise this option, you agree to surrender your immortal soul, and any claim you may have on it, within 5 (five) working days of receiving written notification from gamesation.co.uk or one of its duly authorised minions

It was just an April Fool’s Day gag, but some 7,500 customers’ souls are now the property of this company.


Sex Addiction, is it real?

Addicts call it a God-sized hole, a hollowness in the soul. It leaks no matter how much they try to fill it — and at what cost. For years, George filled his emptiness with pornography, erotic massage and, eventually, sex for hire. There was no tenderness. Even pleasure was rare because every time George engaged in his obsessive sexual behaviors, he felt dirty and even emptier than before.

Garden of Cosmic Speculation

Open to the public only one day a year, the Garden of Cosmic Speculation takes science and maths as its inspiration. Quite simply, there isn’t another garden like it in the world.

The Garden of Cosmic Speculation was set up by Charles Jencks and is located at Portrack House near Dumfries, Scotland. It was set up in 1989 without the usual ideas people have when they create a garden. Instead, it is designed with ideas in mind – and to provoke thought (or at least speculation) about the very nature of things.
