Nicole Kidman Booed at 'Child Love' Film

Actress Nicole Kidman was met by a chorus of boos at the premiere of her shocking new movie Birth - which sees her fall in love with a ten-year-old boy.

The redhead, 37, stars as Anna, who believes a young boy, played by Cameron Bright, is her reincarnated dead husband.

Many disgusted viewers walked out of the theater at the Venice Film Festival Tuesday night after a shocking nude scene featuring Kidman and the boy sharing an erotic bath.

The movie's director, Jonathan Glazer, was disappointed by the reaction but is thrilled it is the front-runner for this year's prestigious Golden Lion award.

I volunteer to change places with the kid to get things all legaled up...

That's.....pretty disturbing. Nude scenes with a child? There must be a statute violation somewhere.

The following is an actual question given on a
university of Washington chemistry mid term. The
answer by one student was "so profound" that the
professor shared it with colleagues,
via the Internet, which is, of
course, why we now have the pleasure
of enjoying it as well.

Bonus Question: Is Hell exothermic (gives off heat)
or endothermic (absorbs heat)?

Most of the students wrote proofs of their beliefs
using Boyle's Law,(gas cools off when it expands and
heats up when it is compressed) or some variant.

One student, however, wrote the following:
First, we need to know how the mass
of Hell is changing in time.
So we need to know the rate that
souls are moving into Hell and the rate
they are leaving. I think that we can safely assume
that once a soul gets to Hell, it will not leave.
Therefore, no souls are leaving.
As for how many souls are entering
Hell, let's look at the different
religions that exist in the world
today. Some of these religions state
that if you are not a member of
their religion, you will go to Hell.
Since there are more than one of
these religions and since people do not
belong to more than one religion, we
can project that all souls go to Hell.

With birth and death rates as they are,
we can expect the number of souls in Hell to
increase exponentially
Now, we look at the rate of change
of the volume in Hell
because Boyle's law states that in order for the
temperature and pressure in Hell to
stay the same, the volume of Hell
has to expand proportionately as
souls are added.
This gives two possibilities:
1. If Hell is expanding at a slower rate than the rate
at which souls enter Hell, then the temperature &
pressure in Hell will increase
until all Hell breaks loose.
2. If Hell is expanding at a rate
faster than the increase of
souls in Hell, then the temperature and
pressure will drop until Hell freezes over.

So which is it?
If we accept the postulate given to me by Teresa
Morrison, during my freshman year, "...that it will be
a cold day in Hell before I sleep with you," and take
into account the fact that I still have not
succeeded in having sexual relations
with her, then :
#2 cannot be true, and thus I am sure that Hell is
exothermic and will not freeze.

I'm certain you would give us an unbiased opinion afterward, right TONY?

that's just fucked up.

what the hell are things coming to when the only plots we can come up with for movies are idiotic nonsense like this? why don't they get that asshole bitch LeTourneau to star in it? If they had that same plot with some 37 year old guy and a ten year old girl in an "erotic bath scene" it would get (rightfully) pegged as child porn (except in France, remember where Polanski ran off to after his deal with the 13 year old? BINGO)

It's not art, it's just being twisted for the sake of art nouveau shock value.

Stupid incompetent asshat cow.

Could be worse. Imagine the part was written for a male lead, and Michael Jackson played him.
