A 21-year-old woman named "Tamara" from San Felipe, Chile is selling her virginity to the highest bidder for a good cause - to pay for higher education.

Most Absurd File Ever

The woman recently posted the offer on Aconcagua VIP, a Chilean escort site, claiming that she needed the money to pay off her university debt.

“Hi, I’m Tamara, I’m 21 years old and I’m selling my virginity because I have a big debt with the school and my family can’t pay for it,” the ad reads.

“I need money. If not, I wouldn’t do this.”

The ad included six pictures of Tamara seductively posing in her underwear, as well as some rules and guidelines for her many prospective buyers.

Lauren Spierer's family has filed a lawsuit against three former college students who were the last people seen with the missing Indiana University student.

Spierer, a sophomore at Indiana from Greenburgh, N.Y., disappeared two years ago in Bloomington, Ind., after a night of partying with friends and acquaintances.

Robert and Charlene Spierer claim in a lawsuit that their daughter's last known interaction with Corey Rossman, Mike Beth and Jay Rosenbaum is to blame.

Her interaction with the three former students ultimately resulted in the 20-year-old's "disappearance, death or injury," according to attorney Jason Barclay.

The complaint says the men's negligence led to the disappearance of Lauren Spierer, which remains unsolved, according to state and local police.

A woman fired for being too attractive will get another shot at her sexual discrimination lawsuit after the Iowa Supreme Court decided to reconsider the case.

Melissa Nelson says she spent 10 happy years working as a dental hygienist for Dr. James Knight until he fired her, claiming she was a threat to his marriage.

The all-male Iowa State Supreme Court ruled in 2012 that Knight was within his legal rights when he fired Nelson, as the termination was not based on gender.

Knight's attorney says the decision to fire Nelson was legal, telling ABC News he believes the court will reaffirm its decision, as "the law has not changed."

Meanwhile, Melissa Nelson, who successfully appealed to the court to re-hear the case, hopes that even if the law hasn't changed, the interpretation might.

It's always been assumed, but The New Yorker went ahead and stuck its nose in Sesame Street's business today...

... by outing Bert and Ernie as a gay couple!

In the wake of the Supreme Court shooting down DOMA and Prop 8 this week, the magazine's latest issue places these two puppets on the cover, savoring the "moment of joy."

“It’s amazing to witness how attitudes on gay rights have evolved in my lifetime,” said Jack Hunter, the artist behind this image, adding via Tumblr:

“This is great for our kids, a moment we can all celebrate.”

It's possible not everyone agrees, however. In 2011, Sesame Street even said that Bert and Ernie are just friends, with no implied sexual orientation.

Tell us what you think in the comments and our surveys:

Are they just friends?

An apparently aroused Pennsylvania couple spent a night in jail after they got caught having sex in a public park by 25 bike cops on a training ride.

Hornballs

Richard McBride, 37, and Jennifer Harvey, 41, were boning near a baseball diamond at the appropriately named Naylor's Run Park at 4 p.m. Tuesday.

That's when a swarm of officers from the area rolled through on a bike patrol training ride through the Philadelphia suburbs and saw them on a baseball field.

"There they were, on the first base line," Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said, though they were WELL beyond first base at that point.

If you know what we mean!

A supermajority of U.S. senators passed a bipartisan immigration reform bill Thursday, but as historic as that is, the future of reform is still far from certain.

Reid v. Boehner

The bill would grant 11 million undocumented immigrants immediate legal status and a path to citizenship while sending $30 billion to the  border for security.

The border security provision was added Wednesday and helped win support of Republicans. The final vote was 68-32 with support from 14 Republicans.

Yet the future of a comprehensive reform bill, even one that includes a "border surge" to double the border patrol and security, is very much unclear.

We have breaking news regarding an ad for Pepsi Max that went viral this week:

The magician who appears to be levitating alongside a double decker bus is not actually levitating. Shocking, we know.

Soon we'll also tell you that Chris Brown has an anger problem.

The good (bored?) folks at News.com.au have examined the above video in detail and determined that the man's arm was likely a harness attached to the bus.

His real arm was then placed inside this prosthetic.

"His fingers don’t move in the clip and there are no people around when he hovers up and down the bus," the site writes. "In fact, at second glance the arm attached to the bus looks pretty phony.”

We are very sorry to break this to you, folks. But while we're here: Santa Claus is fake and Kim Kardashian does not write her own Facebook messages.

Have a great day!

Amnesty International has produced a short film spoofing/drawing attention to the global arms trade by presenting the AK-47 in infomercial form.

It may look like a joke, but the group's point is clearly political - that this might as well be how the world's massive gun industry operates today.

Even something as lethal as this assault rifle is so commonplace, many people barely give it a second thought. It might as well be on late night TV.

Take a look below and see what you think:
