Michigan is looking to boost its film production by offering rebates on spending done in the state. According to the Detroit Free Press, however, there are two caveats: No movies that make Michigan look bad and no porn. What the hell else kind of production would shoot there?
The Northern Territory News from Australia seems shocked to report that illegal Indonesian fisherman (Australia's version of tunneling Mexicans, wait, did I just offend anyone?) have been watching porn on computers while in custody at the Darwin Immigration Detention Center. What's the surprise? Most of these teenagers hail from the island of Roti, where they live in shacks without electricity...
