Men love their anatomy, and nowhere is that more apparent then in Husavik, Iceland, where the Icelandic Phallological Museum resides. From May to September, visitors can view a collection that includes 261 penises from 90 different species, all carefully preserved and put on display. Wow, definitely for this special anatomy lovers!
From a giant Sperm whale specimen that is over 5 feet long, to a tiny hamster penis bone that is just 2 millimeters, there are a variety of sizes and shapes to marvel at. Currently absent from founder Sigurdur Hjartarson’s assortment is a human penis, but luckily this lack will not last forever. Four different men have promised to donate their phalluses to the museum upon their deaths, though at least one of these men is already rethinking the idea, as he is afraid that his shrunken member might not bring him the eternal fame he was hoping.

Compared to the bright lights of New York or the romantic charm of Paris, you may think that life in your hometown is boring. But it’s probably not as boring as life in Boring, Oregon. Yes, that really is the name of the place. It’s named for its founder, W. H. Boring, who is most likely a very boring guy.
Life may be quite boring in Boring, but the residents there should be grateful that at least they’re not in Hell. Yes, Hell is a real place too, not very far from Paradise!
If you think that Hell is full of fire and brimstones, think again. Somewhat ironically, Hell is in Michigan, a state way up north that gets covered in deep snow every winter. I bet the good people there are sick and tired of all the lame “it’s a cold day in Hell” and “Hell freezes over” jokes that outsiders like us throw at them all the time. 😀
What do you know? Golf may not be the mild-mannered pansy sport that soccer hooligans purport it to be.
It may have started out like just another breezy day in the Country Club for Matt Johnson but his golf swing was about to save a life by fighting off an alligator. There he was, possibly doing that bizarre sideway shoulder move that all golfers do, when he heard a desperate cry for help. And what do you know! A quick glance around revealed a man, in the lake, fighting a nasty alligator!
Hahaha… I have a good laugh when I see these famous people’s gestures! It’s amazing they all seem to use the same hand gesture to express their idea, opinion, or emotion.
Taking the “talking to plant” theory to a whole new level, are we?
A company in Texas, called Accent Engineering Inc., has developed this ingenious method of informing you when your plants are thirsty. Basically there are monitors that supervise the overall conditions of your plants and sms you if there are any noteworthy changes.
Here’s how it works.
Battery-operated infrared thermometers placed in irrigated fields monitor leaf temperatures and relay that information to a computerized base station. A cell phone modem can be hooked up to the base station to download data to a personal computer. This modem can also send text messages to a farmer’s cell phone.
Now you can enjoy that aromatic cup of coffee, knowing that technology is watching over your livelihood.
And sure, this currently applies to expansive fields of crops but it won’t be long until you get a teensy version for that sorry wilting specimen on your window sill.
Worse case scenario you wake up in middle of night to read that dreaded sms – “Feed me Seymour!”
It has been an interesting time for those addicted to the thrill of shoplifting lately. In Bermerton, WA, a teenage boy took candy bars from a local store. He may have gotten away with it too, if his breath hadn’t alerted the cops to his guilt. When the police officer investigating the case questioned him about it, he caught the distinct scent of chocolate from the young man’s mouth. After witnesses also identified the boy, he finally confessed to taking the candy because “he was hungry and he did it for the thrill.”
Shoplifting seems to be going around these days, and not just with kids and teenagers, but also with adults in positions of authority. Suzanne Page of Channel WLAJ 4 in Michigan was caught stealing food from a local market (among other things) a couple of years ago and this led to her resigning as a news anchor in 2008. Eventually her bad reputation just outweighed her good reputation and she had to bow out from the public eye.
Here’s a dead giveaway – unbeknowst to you, he makes a sex tape and then blackmails your family with the saucy tape!
Well, that’s what this distraught woman in India found out; apparently hubby dearest had been donning the director’s cap when they went for a rough and tumble in the bedroom.
And that’s not all! The man clearly has a get-rich-quick plan as he has threated to post the sex tape on a pornography site on the Internet unless the family pays up a hefty dowry – a staggering 8 million rupees ($200 000).
By the way, did I mention that the poor family had already dished out a mega $10 000 worth in twinkling jewelery?
His wife should blog about her nasty hubby and upload his details.
I mean, he admits to browsing porn, wanted to upload his own home video and is now released on bail for threatening his wife’s family. Can you imagine what prospective employers will stumble across when they Google his details?
As urban populations around the world continue to grow at an alarming pace, cities are quickly running out of space. The overcrowding causes a lot of problems, and for car owners, there are few things more frustrating than the lack of suitable parking spots. Having to drive around the same block twenty times while desperately looking for a place to park is enough to make even the most polite drivers spew curse words.
In an attempt to find a solution, smart scientists at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology came up with the intriguing idea of small foldable cars that can be stacked together like shopping carts! Amazing, isn’t it?
There’s a giant monster behind you! Run for your lives!
Who says pets can’t benefit from technology? The days of having to put your dog or cat to sleep because they are no longer in great shape are over. Now herniated discs, amputations, and paralysis mean nothing, because you can order a set of custom “wheels” for your pet that will get them going again in no time! Manufactures have made sure to build them waterproof, land-proof, and play proof, because what is the point of giving your disabled pet back their mobility if they can’t fully utilize it?
And those people out there who are in to more exotic pets don’t have to fret about what will happen to their injured tortoises, turtles, or lizards. Pet wheels have been proven to work for reptiles as well. Writer Jim Lee built a set of custom wheels for an injured Box Turtle that allowed her to run around his house and even go outside.
Check out these wheels for a paralyzed turtle!
Talk about a “hands-on” approach.
The British based Office of Government Commerce (OGC) is a well-meaning organization that aims at “improving value for money by driving up standards and capability in procurement”.
More of a let’s not leave things be, let’s make stuff happen sort of cool attitude.
You got the name, you got your mission statement, all you need is a chic logo and some well needed marketing. And that’s what they did. Unfortunately for the distinguished group of gentlemen and ladies, there was a bit of a hiccup at the design level. Oh, it looked sleek and matter of fact, minimalist and yet modern … but let’s say it needed a bit of lateral thinking!
Once OGC had paid a hefty £14 000 for their logo and unveiled it to their eager staff members, a most unbecoming picture came to light. As the delightfully tickled staff pointed out, when you turned the fancy logo vertically, the image gave a whole new meaning to “tight fisted” approach.
Needless to say, all marketing stationary bearing the embarrassing logo was quickly packed away.
As one spokesperson for OGC said: “It is not inappropriate to an organization that’s looking to have a firm grip on Government spend.”
This is the wrong instance to say firm grip.
