In late 2007, Harlow wrote his friend a letter that he called “The Plan,” detailing a public-image campaign ahead of the upcoming trial. Convinced that jurors associate poor fashion sense with guilt, Harlow urges his friend to get rid of photos of Harlow wearing an ill-fitting pair of jeans:
Remember it’s the jeans that made me look like I have a fat ass, not my fat ass that makes those jeans look fat … A good-looking defendant is harder to sentence.
Harlow added that he was glad that all references to his self-given nickname — “The Stud Wonder” — had been removed from his website, and he expressed relief that he had shaved the morning of his arrest, allowing him to work “the youth killer look” in his mug-shot. Near the end of the letter, Harlow writes, “I have also taken prayer a little more seriously.” Now there’s a good idea.

The COLT superstars joined a protest in Rome against the Catholic Church in order to make the claim that gay people are not pedophiles. There was a chihuaha involved.
I feel sorry for people with fetishes that can never be realized in real life. Take this Flickr user, who has to make do with his giants fetish using Photoshop.
I'm not one for bragging about intellectual accomplishments (it's something I learned from, you know, graduating with honors from Brown University), but Conner Habib is justifiably excited about his blurb in a book written by Carl Sagan's son.
