CIA using Viagra as bait?

Surfing the web I came across this odd bit of news. The CIA using Viagra to entice Afghan warlords into giving up information. A bit twisted in my opinion but a quote from the article.

In one case, a 60-year-old warlord with four wives was given four pills and four days later detailed Taleban movements in return for more.

"Whatever it takes to make friends and influence people," the Post quoted one agent as saying.

"Whether it's building a school or handing out Viagra."

You can read the full article here at the BBC.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone, although I'm a bit late posting, according to clock here it's 2:23 am which means officially it's over. But better late than never I guess. One of my usual sleepless nights, so I find myself browsing the web while waiting on drowsiness to kick in. I really do enjoy that stumble plugin for firefox. Makes random surfing much nicer.

Anyhow Happy Holidays!

7 Pounds

I just recently watched the movie 7 pounds starring Will Smith and Rosario Dawson. I am usually not a big fan of dramas, but this movie was great. The title is an allusion to the Shakespeare play Merchant of Venice, and this movie is about redemption. There is a little twist to the plot I won't reveal here, I'll just say it is definitely a must see. Below is the trailer for the movie. Be warned you may need tissue when seeing this one, it's a real tear jerker.

Starring: Will Smith, Rosario Dawson, Michael Ealy, Barry Pepper, Woody Harrelson
