(Newser) – Michael Stone is nothing if not perseverant: The Minnesota high-schooler had no prom date, so he started tweeting to every porn star he could think of, asking if anyone would accompany him. Almost 600 tweets later, the 18-year-old had two takers: Megan Piper, 19, and Emy Reyes. "I thought it was really cute, and I thought it would make his night by saying 'yes,'" Piper tells the Huffington Post. Stone is now trying to raise $400 for a plane ticket to get Piper, who did not attend her own senior prom, from LA to Minnesota. Click for more on the story.
