Lawsuit Accuses FBI Of Using No-Fly List To Get American Muslims To Become Informants  10 hours ago

A federal lawsuit filed Tuesday accuses the FBI of using the no-fly list to coerce American Muslims into becoming law enforcement informants. Four Muslim men who are either American citizens or legal permanent U.S. residents assert in the lawsuit, filed in U.S. District Court in New York, that the FBI's use of the no-fly list violates their First Amendment and Fifth Amendment rights and breaks administrative procedures and religious freedom laws. They ask the court to order them removed from the no-fly list and to award them unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.

The fourth, Awais Sajjad, says in the lawsuit that he was put on the list, and was "subjected to extens...

Taiwan's First Sex-Themed Restaurant Just Opened, Has Penis On The Menu (NSFW)  16 hours ago

Welcome to Funny Sex, a restaurant in Taiwan where sex is in the air and penis pudding is always on the menu. NSFW images ahoy In the creepy NSFW video below, a variety of voices take you through the first sex-themed restaurant to open in Kaohsiung, a southern city in Taiwan.

CNN recently added Funny Sex to a post about Kaohsiung, calling it a restaurant that offers "sex education." Perhaps that's a reference to the fact that the restaurant...
