Gaytime Raspberry Roughs



Alas, in this less-innocent year of 2015, anyone soliciting a "gaytime raspberry rough" and expecting an ice cream treat is likely to get something different than they anticipated.

ABOUT D@%N TIME

France has enacted a law limiting excessively thin models from working until their BMI reaches a minimum level set forth in the law. Fines and even jail time can be leveled against fashion houses and modeling agents trying to use models that are thinner than the law allows. Its about time we quit letting vanity destroy our little girls.

Mail a Spud

For $9.99 Mail a Spud will put stamps on a Russet potato and mail it to a recipient of your choice. No box or other packaging. Just a stamped and addressed potato. Offer available in the U.S. only.

They have a FAQ on their site, but they don't answer what I thought would be the obvious question, which is: why would anyone pay them to mail a potato, when it seems easy enough to do this oneself? After all, how hard can it be to put stamps on a potato and place it in the mail. Am I missing something here? Some hidden difficulty?

Wearable Banana

Dole Japan has developed what they call the "wearable banana" to be worn by marathon runners. BakeryAndSnacks.com explains:

The gadget comprises wired electrical parts stuck to the inside of a banana skin, which is then sewn back together around the fruit and strapped to a runner's wrist — thereafter it shows their race time, heart rate and tweets from supporters, as well as when to eat the next banana.

People have noticed the similarity (at least in name) between the 'wearable banana' and the 'wearable tomato project' (which I posted about last week). Is the one a rip-off of the other? Or is the similarity just an example of a simultaneous discovery of the concept of wearable fruit?

Round Egg

After 64 bids a round egg sold for £480 on EBay. Amazing considering its still just an egg.

Wearable Tomato Project

This has gotten quite a bit of attention from the Internet. But just in case some of you haven't seen it, this is the "Tomatan" — the end result of the "wearable tomato project" sponsored by a Japanese vegetable juice company to promote the idea that tomatoes are good for you and would be great food-on-the-go for runners.

The First Dog Whisperer



Much iconography that was once taken for granted as part of our culture now means nothing to people. Does any youth of today understand that a Napolean hat = crazy?

Your face on a pancake

Technology marches onward! Product development company Kinneir Dufort has created a machine that can print faces onto pancakes. It explains:

Combining CNC (Computer Numerical Control) technology with embedded face recognition and tracking software, the system dispenses layers of batter directly onto a hot plate allowing the creation of detailed and complex images within the pancake surfaces. As the conventional pancake batter is applied it immediately starts to cook and change colour and as subsequent layers are added the different tonal qualities of the image build up.
