The Last Temptation of Christ

Today is Ash Wednesday which starts off the 40 days of Lent. Did you know that the 40 days of Lent represent the 40 days Jesus spent in the desert praying and being tempted by the the Devil?

Turkish Oil Wrestlers

Oil Wrestling is one of the most popular sports in Turkey. Also known as Kirkpinar, this sport has origins that date back to 2650BC in Persia! In a nut shell, the participants wear these tight leather trousers and then rub olive oil all over themselves, which of course makes them very slippery. One of the only ways that they are able to get a good hold of each other is buy grabbing each other by the crotch. It's a great way for straight guys to bond.

In the 1980's two famous Toms brought the walrus mustache back into fashion.
