It turns out Kevin Costner's acting is not the only thing wooden about him. Word is now getting out Costner apparently spent a little time dancing with himself while he attended a celebrity pro-am event at St. Andrews in 2004.

A hotel masseuse was fired after she accused Costner of exposing himself and masturbating while she massaged him. The woman settled with the hotel just before a tribunal was to hear her wrongful termination case.

Oh, the jokes ...

Possible Costner remakes in light of this information:

Look At My Post, Man!
Tin Fap
Throbbin Wood
The Touchables
Field of Creams

There was some question about the veracity of the woman's claim, but the hotel's lawyers agreed to settle when she said could identify Costner's unusual masturbatory style -- back and to the left, back and to the left, back and to the left.

I don't really have a take on this story -- it's just too frightening not to pass along. A drug trial held in February in England nearly killed its six participants and has called into question whether the speed with which companies are rushing new drugs to market is putting people in danger.

I don't have enough information to make much of an informed decision on this, but read the linked article and consider the fact that countries are now competing to land drug company trials by cutting the time it takes to gain governmental approval.

Mackenzie and I had our first feeding time overnight last night. Duty called at 3 a.m., and she took damned near a whole bottle of formula in about 45 minutes. Both of us kept falling asleep, but in the end she got fed and I got back to sleep.

My wife is overly appreciative of this effort. Seriously, I've been practically begging to give her one of the overnight feeding times off for a week, but in her defense I usually ask right as she wakes up, and I don't think she understands English at that point.

Anyhow, everyones fine and I think we're almost finished passing around the stomach flu. Here's a new picture for those baby fans in the audience. I think Mackenzie appears to be getting ready to go all kung fu on someone's ass.
