I hope all the mothers out there have a terrific day, especially Mama Earp and Mrs. Earp.
If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a million times: there are no better commenters than the ones here at SYLG. Take Easily Lost, for example. She saw my post on the Stas Wars BDSM gear, and scoured teh innernets to find this little gem: Fundawear.
Fundawear launches Durexperiment, dedicated to developing products that inspire great sex. It is a unique concept that takes the idea of long distance love to the next level. To stay connected when they are apart all a couple needs to do is kit themselves out in Fundawear, download the special app and then connect digitally with their partner.
The app takes touch input from one person’s screen and sends these signals via the internet and a real-time server to the other person’s touch screen device. In just a split second the signal is sent to the Fundawear garment where the touch sensation is recreated on the skin using touch actuators.
The best part? If you’re single and homely – lookin’ at you, Dr. Evil – you can probably use the app on yourself. Fantastic find, E.L.! (Reminds self to make Easily Lost an official blogger here.)
I’m late to the party with this story, but I had to post it because it is so full of win.
Kent Hendrix woke up Tuesday to his teenage son pounding on his bedroom door and telling him somebody was being mugged in front of their house. The 47-year-old father of six rushed out the door and grabbed the weapon closest to him — a 29-inch high carbon steel Samurai sword.
He came upon what he describes as a melee between a woman and a man. His son stayed inside to call 911 while he approached the man along with other neighbors who came to help. The martial arts instructor didn’t hesitate in drawing the sword and yelling at him to get on the ground.
Hendrix, a bishop in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, said it was the first time in 30 years of practicing martial arts that he’s used the sword.
Something tells me no one will be sleeping through the bishop’s sermons in the future.
My all-time favorite DisneyWorld ride is the Haunted Mansion. It’s better than Space Mountain, in my opinion. So when I saw this little piece or brilliance, I had to post it.
(Click the photo to embiggen.)
In “Haunted Arkham Asylum,” artist Abraham Lopez has imagined heroes and villains from the Batman series into stretching portraits à la Disney’s Haunted Mansion attraction. The first pane shows Harley Quinn and Killer Croc, the second shows a pantless Joker holding Scarface, the third features Poison Ivy and Ra’s Al Ghul, and finally, in the fourth panel, the Batman family sits on each other’s shoulders surrounded by a pool of the shape-shifting Clayface.
Harley Quinn for the win!
After years of abuse and discrimination, Fatty McButterpants is finally having his/her revenge.
Airbus is offering airlines the option of installing extra-wide seats on A320 jets to cope with what it describes as “trends in demographics.” The extra-wide seats will measure 20 inches across instead of the standard 18 inches, and will likely be installed only as aisle seats.
Window and middle seats will each lose an inch of width to generate the extra space. Airbus is selling the idea as an innovative way to “meet passenger needs” – even though two-thirds of passengers will have to make do with less space.
One of two things will result from this move. Either slightly-portly people will request the obese seat simply for the extra space, or some jackass lawyer will claim the seats discriminate against people who don’t use Pop Tarts as sandwich bread.
A French (of course) researcher just published a study claiming women would be better off going braless.
Jean-Denis Rouillon spent fifteen years examining the effects a bra has on women’s breasts.
What a rack-et.
A huge 15-year study found wearing a bra could actually be sending our busts southwards, and does little to ease back pain. Researchers claimed that bras are little more than a ‘false necessity’ and there is no benefit at all in ‘denying breasts gravity’.
The research was led by professor Jean-Denis Rouillon, from the University of Besançon in eastern France, a sports science expert. Professor Rouillon said: “Medically, physiologically, anatomically – breasts gain no benefit from being denied gravity. On the contrary, they get saggier with a bra.”
With the help of a slide rule and caliper, Rouillon spent years measuring changes in the orientation of the breasts of 130 women.
Wow, poor guy. I mean, can you imagine spending fifteen years measuring women’s breasts using slide rules and calipers?
As a Catholic – albeit a terrible sinner of a Catholic – this is wonderful news. As someone who graduated from Saint Joseph’s University, witnessing the ascension of the first Jesuit pope is something truly special.
Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina was elected pope Wednesday, becoming the first pontiff from the Americas and taking the name Pope Francis I.
“As you know, the duty of the conclave was to appoint a bishop of Rome, and it seems to me that my brother cardinals went to fetch him at the end of the world,” he said. “But here I am.”
Bergoglio, 76, the first Jesuit pope, spent nearly his entire career at home in Argentina, overseeing churches and shoe-leather priests. He reportedly received the second-most votes after Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger — who became Benedict XVI — in the 2005 papal election, and he has long specialized in the kind of pastoral work considered an essential skill for the next pope.
May God bless and keep him.
Actually, this bacon dress accomplishes both.
We’ve featured some unusual fashions here over the years, but I’m not sure whether I should be drooling or nauseous from this insane creation – the bacon dress.
While the smell and taste of sizzling bacon is delectable, the idea of a greasy, slimy all-meat dress makes me throw up a little bit in my mouth. But I’m also oddly aroused. Is that wrong? Yes, it is. I’m going to go make myself a BLT now.
Oh yeah, she’s sizzling… and the two of you can “work off” the calories afterward.
Wow, these Legos hit Interstate 79 like a ton of bricks.
We’ve all suffered the horror of stepping on a Lego brick in bare feet and nearly dying from the agony those stupid little things can inflict, but who knew car tires were as sensitive? A giant spill of Lego bricks on Interstate 79 in West Virginia shut down one lane of the highway on Sunday, because apparently your tires can’t handle those pointy bits either.
From WDTV.com: Around 5:15 Sunday afternoon, there was a roadway obstruction of LEGO blocks on I-79 around mile marker 117 in Harrison County.
Nothing I can add would be funnier than this comment at the WDTV site:
“I saw this happen. A giant lego man was driving a car made out of legos, lost control, hit the guardrail, and exploded into a thousand pieces. Investigators are trying to reconstruct the scene, and the car.”
Worried the Obama administration wants to take your guns? Strike back by purchasing a set of stainless steel playing cards.
This is an idea that will certainly catch on with the superhero set.
Throwing a playing card is as easy as, well, picking one up. Causing it to slice into an apple or stick to a wall, that’s an entirely different accomplishment. Unfortunately, many of us will never achieve the latter feat since throwing playing cards in a deadly, or at least paper cut inducing manner is an all together useless skill set. That said, there is no taking away the cool factor when it comes to card throwing, and that’s why I appreciate these Steel Throwing Cards.
The pack of four contains a set of Aces all from different suits. The edges of the cards have been affixed with stainless steel and based on the above pic, are sharp enough to pierce a wooden surface. You can grab a set from The Fancy for $25.
Finally, cheating at cards is a thing of the past!
