White Goat Toilet Paper Machine

This was in the news a few years ago. But it was new to me, so perhaps new to you also.

It's a machine, called White Goat, that transforms office paper into toilet paper, in only 30 minutes. Unfortunately, at $100,000, it's not exactly cost effective. But it would have to boost employee morale to know they were wiping their behinds with company reports and the boss's memos. [via techcrunch]

Shun the Mustache Kiss!

We're now three weeks into Movember. So this seems like timely advice from the Washington Post - Apr 28, 1912.

Lapkins

Yet another useless product. Put the napkin on your lap and make it look like you're only wearing underwear. Nudists could use them to make it look like they're wearing underwear! Get 'em here. (via OhGizmo)

Munchers:  A Fable



Teeth who themselves have mouths (and, presumably, teeth within those mouths) are blowing my mind. As is everything else about this video.

5-Day Deodorant Pads



Do you have to abstain from washing your pits for five days to make this work and get your money's worth? I note this item still exists. Any experience with it among WUvies?

Follies of the Madmen #216



I understand James Cameron is already adapting parts of this for the Avatar sequel, along with all his other "influences."
