A 19-year-old is mad pop singer Katy Perry kissed him during American Idol auditions. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship,” the teen told The New York Times Wednesday.
It was “uncomfortable,” Benjamin Glaze said after getting his first kiss ever from American Idol judge Perry Sunday, The New York Times reported. The kiss was broadcasted on live TV. Glaze would have refused if he’d been asked ahead of time, he said
“I wanted it to be special,” Glaze said. He turned 20 since getting his awkward first kiss from the singer. Many guys would be excited for the 33-year-old to kiss them, but he was raised to believe you should only kiss someone you’re in a relationship with, Glaze said.

Animal Magnetism notes a study finds no links between playing violent video games and becoming violent
Worried about violent video games having an adverse event on American youth? Worry no longer; a study done by the University of York has found no links between violent video games and violent behavior. So far, at least; as with most actual science, there are conditions. Science is, after all, tentative. Excerpt:
In a series of experiments, with more than 3,000 participants, the team demonstrated that video game concepts do not ‘prime’ players to behave in certain ways and that increasing the realism of violent video games does not necessarily increase aggression in game players.
There is more on the study but the real wisdom comes from Amial himself
There’s another problem, though, and the same problem exists as when someone blames a crime on anything other than the perp: It’s bullshit. The only person, the only thing responsible for a crime is the person that committed that crime. When we lose sight of that, the criminal justice system becomes… well, something like it is today.
