Is ‘World of Warcraft Classic’ bugged for you? Check this list, it might be a feature.

Image: blizzard entertainment World of Warcraft Classic is meant to take fans of Blizzard’s hit MMORPG back to simpler times. But memory, as it turns out, is a funny thing. The new-old WoW — Classic restores to the MMO many of the rules and systems that defined its 2005 release — isn’t set to launch until the summer, but players are participating in the closed beta test now. And an apparently not-insignificant number of them are running into issues that they’re reporting as bugs. There’s just one problem: some of those bugs are actually features. It’s hard to say how many people are making the mistake when Classic isn’t even out yet. But the number is apparently large enough that …

His research was taking him deep into the murky territory of academias extreme right wing. As he worked, he found his waking life beginning to soak into his subconscious, colouring his sleep. In his dream, his son, then two years old, was trapped in a runaway car hurtling down a hill. The traffic is going in both directions, and I am in the middle of the road desperately waving my hands trying to stop the flow, in order to save the life of my son, he tells me. …

Is that Dad? 75 years on, D-Day history still being written

Into his seventies, Gantois still had no clues to pursue, no name to work with, no paper trail to follow. As a consequence, he also had no peace. “Throughout my life, I lived with this open wound,” he says. “I never accepted my situation, of not knowing my father and, most of all, knowing that he didn’t know about me, didn’t know of my existence.” Even as Europe, the United States and their allies mark 75 years since 160,000 Allied troops stormed a heavily-fortified 50-mile (80-kilometer) stretch of Nazi-occupied coastline in Normandy, the history of D-Day and its aftermath is still being written. The big picture, of course, is well known, meticulously documented and preciously conserved to be told and …

Georgia senator says he’s not worried about his state losing film business over abortion ban

(CNN)After film productions have threatened to boycott Georgia over a controversial new abortion law, US Sen. David Perdue says he doesn’t think the bill will pose a risk to his state’s economy. Perdue is unmoved by the threat. “It’s ironic that several of these companies that are threatening to boycott have yet to do business in Georgia,” he said. “It just shows that rhetoric is more important than reality.” CNN reached out to Perdue’s office but his spokeswoman said there would be no comment on the record beyond the senator’s remarks in the interview. The Writers Guild of America has expressed concern about the law and the Motion Picture Association of America says it monitoring the situation to see if …

Wendy Williams revisits her feud with Howard Stern. On Monday’s episode of her hit daytime talk show, The Wendy Williams Show host discussed the shock jock’s Back in March, Wendy went on-air and accused the 65-year-old of going soft, commenting: “He’s a Hollywood insider now, which sucks because you started like me, being of the people, but at some point, you sat behind that microphone for too long, and now you are the people.” Needless to say, the former America’s Got Talent judge was PISSED, and fired back by saying: “Jealous bitch… You are nobody to me.

‘I wanted to explore my own pleasure’ how I rebooted my sex life

At 35, I realised I had no idea what I really wanted in bed or how to ask for it. So I went on a sex odyssey, one orgasm at a time My story, like all the greats, starts with a disappointing wank. I was on one of the big free porn sites and I saw something that disturbed me. Now, I was used to porn; I had been using/watching/waiting for it to buffer for years. It was just what you did, if you were feeling aroused and alone, wasnt it? But on this night, I found myself thinking about a young woman in a thumbnail picture, hoping she was all right. I turned my computer off and thought about …

How A Cervical Biopsy Rocked My Understanding of HPV Betches

The year prior I’d undergone my very first colposcopy after a positive HPV test. I felt cursed. Finding out someone is going to cut pieces out of your cervix is sh*tty under normal circumstances, but for someone with an anxiety disorder, it was fuel on an already heavily unstable fire. My sister came to the appointment. My doctor had advised I take “two Ibuprofen” before coming. I took two Valium and four Advil. My doctor used no numbing cream, no local anesthesia, no anything for the pain. The cervix, she explained, has very few nerve endings and so pain management isn’t necessary for this in-office procedure. Also, she FAINTED and it wasn’t even her procedure. Way to make it about …

Bedbugs ‘outlived the dinosaurs’

Male bedbugs have a dagger-like penis, with which they stab the female to inseminate directly into her bloodstream. How bed bugs ‘dodge insecticides’ Bed bugs repulsed by certain colours “It’s the reproductive version of peacock’s tail – it’s so extreme,” said Prof Siva-Jothy. “These animals are so strange – they don’t do anything like any other animal does. Image copyright University of Sheffield Image caption The researchers had to search remote caves for their bedbug samples, where most of the species live and feed on their bat hosts Prof Siva-Jothy added that the bedbugs’ biological “Achilles heel” could be hidden in their genetic code – particularly in the parts of the genome that were unique to the two species that …

Youll Get Used To The Poop: Nurse Reveals The Heartbreaking Situations That Actually Make Their Stomach Turn

Whilst the actors, musicians, politicians and sports stars hog most of the world’s attention (and cash), the true heroes of our society work selflessly and quietly in the background, saving lives and performing medical miracles on a daily basis. Medical staff are criminally overworked and underappreciated for what they do. Can you imagine being faced with human tragedy, day after day? Knowing that sometimes, despite your best efforts, you’re going to have to give the news to a patient’s loved one, the kind of news nobody ever wants to hear? It must take an enormous toll on the mental and emotional health of these incredibly brave and dedicated people, not to mention the physical strain of 14-hour shifts, chronic stress …
