They don’t look all that complicated either.  [...]

  • CString Takes Sly Lingerie To The Next Level

    CString Takes Sly Lingerie To The Next Level

    Yep, we think the g-string doesn’t completely conceal itself under your tight slacks too.  That’s why we recommend the next level of lingerie in the war against visible panty lines: the CString, which eliminates discernible lines completely since there’s absolutely nothing to make them. The name is a complete misnomer, since there’s no actual string involved.  Instead, it’s more like a rigid fabric-based pantyliner that magically sticks to your crotch.  When we say “you,” of course, we’re assuming you’re a [...]

Imagining how it works sound gross (a mental picture of all that mucus just ain’t so peachy).  To patients suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), however, it could be the cheapest way to experience relief.   Simply blow into the toy-like apparatus, wait till it works its magic and [...]

  • Toshiba Launches Chair Into Space, No Armchair Astronaut In Tow

    Toshiba Launches Chair Into Space, No Armchair Astronaut In Tow

    Of all things you can launch into space, an armchair is undoubtedly one of the most ridiculous.  But that’s exactly what Toshiba did in their Space Chair ad campaign, which seeks to promote the company’s 2010 Regza SV LCD TV. While throwing home fixtures into the edge of space has absolutely nothing to do with selling a television set, I guess Toshiba sees some value in the stunt.  In a nutshell, their advertisement follows the “ordinary living room chair” as [...]

    Having problems sleeping?  Tried every solution in the book?  Lord knows there’s a good lot of them, from outright superstitious behavior to drowning your room in scents to popping the good ol’ pill.  Here’s another one you can try: sleeping with the light on.  Huh?!?

    Play Luxury Table Tennis With The Chrome Ping Pong Table

    Luxury table tennis, anyone?  While you can always play ping pong on a small slab of plywood and a net, that’s not nearly half as fun as doing it on an excessively decadent shining surface.  The Chrome Ping Pong Table (dubbed “The Future Is Chrome”) sports mirror-polished stainless steel everywhere you look, making the relatively low-overhead game of hitting a ball back and forth infinitely more dramatic. Created by Argentina-born Rirkrit Tiravanija, the blindingly reflective game table isn’t supposed to [...]

    The Art Of Tim Burton Comes To NY Museum Of Modern Arts, Hardcover Book

    We all know Tim Burton is weird yet cool.  Catch any single film from the bird’s nest-headed director and his nightmare-inspired visual vocabulary immediately appears front and center.  With his new film Alice In Wonderland nearing theatrical release, the goth maestro is once again toying with the spotlight. More than being a master of strangely delightful movies, however, Tim also happens to be quite a capable artist.  In fact, many characters from his films have first found their way into [...]

    Screw Replicas, Own A Real Bazooka For The Price Of An iPhone

    Ack!  Why buy an iPhone 3GS when you can own a 50-year old rocket launcher?  On sale right now at Centerfire Systems are a number of decommissioned Spanish Bazookas that should make a nice addition to any kind of collection.  Heck, I’m buying one and putting it in the middle of my Barbie doll case.  Not that I actually collect Barbies.  Just saying. Sure, they’ve been deactivated according to BATF specs, so they probably won’t fire even if you slip [...]
