Meet the Woman Who Farts for a Living
Faced with the desperate prospect of not being able to afford her own insurance and $15,000 per annum in additional specialty medication and expensive co-pays for hospital visits, Jacki could have given up. But ever the entrepreneur and optimist, she did not dwell on the failings of the U.S. healthcare system (although fail it did). Instead, Jacki realized that she would have to give her fledgling forays into fetish a full-time shot. As a seller of fetish items, Jacki had a flexibility that most nine-to-fivers would give an arm and a leg for.

First Look: New High-Tech NYPD Helicopter Takes The Fight To The Terrorists
The helicopter, a Bell 412EP, was funded with federal port security money and can carry up to 10 people, including a pilot, co-pilot, crew chief, NYPD SCUBA divers or Emergency Services Unit officers. It weighs 7,000 pounds, can travel 150 mph and costs $9.8 million, plus it carries another $4 million worth of sensitive equipment.

Tape Noise Diary
Some time in 1995 I started playing guitar. It was a friend from high school who turned me on to it. I saw him playing on an acoustic guitar the chord progression of a Green Day song and I was completely blown away. He taught me some chords and standard first-learner stuff like the arpeggio to Metallica’s Nothing Else Matters and Zepellin’s Stairway to Heaven.
