Between A Pill and a Hard Place

Too much estrogen and you end up with blood clots, too little and you end up with pregnancies. What's a contracepting woman to do?

According to CNN, the FDA is concerned that recent efforts to make the pill less harmful have also made it less effective, and are considering new regulations to ensure that FDA approved contraceptives do indeed block conception.

Of course pro-lifers have pointed out for decades that contraception is closely linked with abortion, by virtue of the fact that no contraceptive method is 100% effective. The recent FDA discussion definitely lends credence to this argument.

Where Do You Spend Your Time

While there are many oceans to surf, web surfers seem to congregate on just a few select beaches:

According to Compete's metrics, the top 20 domains attract almost 40 percent of the average websurfer's time, led, by a mile, by MySpace.com. MySpace users hog up News Corp. bandwidth so much that they take up 12 percent of the total time spent anywhere on the Web. Users spent almost 28 billion minutes at MySpace in December.

Yahoo! and its properties capture 8.5 percent of our time, followed by MSN and eBay with 3.7 percent, Google with 2.1 percent, and AOL with 1.7 percent.

How much time have you wasted on MySpace today?
