  2. Worth A Shot, I Guess: Male Atlantic Mollies Go Gay To Boost Mating Chances With Females Later

    We've brought you stories about some of the more interesting techniques animals will go to to improve, even slightly, their chances at breeding. Heck, you barely need us for that -- head down to your local watering hole any Friday night and you'll no doubt get to glimpse folks going to some lengths for the chance to land a mate, even (or especially) just for one evening. A study published online today in the journal Biology Letters suggests that we may have a winner in the "weird ways to get freaky" sweepstakes, though. Researchers studying the Atlantic molly, a small tropical fish related to the guppy, found that some smaller, less dominant examples of Atlantic molly manhood have developed a curious mating tactic -- to improve their chances of breeding with a female, they will first copulate with other males to demonstrate their sexual fitness.

  3. Google Uncensors “Bisexual” From Instant Search?

    Cautiously Optimistic

    It's been two years now since Google unveiled Instant Search, so long, in fact, that I couldn't remember what it was called anymore. Lets have a refresher: two years ago Google changed the way they display search results from waiting for you to press enter before showing a static page, to displaying a constantly refreshing page of guesses based on the characters you'd typed in so far. The problem with this that many people immediately raised was that nobody was going to want to search for words like "sextillion," "pork," or "book," seeing as how those words share initial letters with "sex," "porn," and "boobs." No worries, Google had a plan for that: certain words would not call in the instant search function, and instead would require folks to press enter to see anything other than a blank page. These words would offer no autocorrects, no suggested searches, and feature no results. Which seemed reasonable until Instant Search was rolled out, revealing that included on that list of words was "lesbian," and "bisexual," but not, for example, "ex-gay." It's taken two years, but BiNet says they've managed to get Google to rescind its policy on "bisexual" as a term that does not work with Instant Search.
