FanDuel - WFBC

Better than sex?: Bet on it. So says a study of World Cup fans designed, "to test the effect that placing a bet on a game of soccer has on fans' heart rates". It might explain the letdown being experienced by the German sex industry.

These people obviously don't have very exciting sex.

While I was living in Germany, there was a study done on Germans. The question was: Would you rather give up smoking or give up sex? Over 80% of Germans responded that they would rather give up sex. Don't think sex is that high on the Germans priority list.

Masturbation with a copy of Farmers Weekly is preferable to watching the Ukraine - Switzerland game.

Ha! Get it! They're all gays! Awesome post. Kurt Busch is a lucky man. And he drives a very shiny car. Seriously though, I think there is a definite crisis in Germany right now. Millions of attractive Teutonic women are going underserved. I will assemble a crack team of men to go over there and get the job done. "You know, the Japanese have the same word for crisis as they do for opportunity." "Yep. Crisitunity!"

KC: Authorized Gay bashing is two threads up. Weedy, I would be happy to join your team, but I don't have any crack.

From the Reuters article: Only high-profile brothels said their business was humming. Someone on the editing desk must be very proud.
