This clever lingerie company has constructed an entire wall of silicon breasts in different sizes so that men can determine what size Cans their wives and/or girlfriends have.

(I think it's that blue thing in the background that looks like a wall of boobs)

Although I'm not sure I'd want to work at a store where men wander in and just grope the walls...
I bet they've got to be wiped down with disinfectant pretty often.


If you wanna see Jeff Daniels get really uncomfortable, watch him on The Colbert Report, where Steven Colbert grills him about living in Chelsea and whether the Chelsea Standard is a better newspaper than the Dexter Leader.
"The Dexter Leader's a rag, right? C'mon...Liberal elites live in Dexter!"


The iPod "is changing the way we store, carry, and use all kinds of information—and the way we interact with each other" according to this upcoming book. More great stuff here.
Playlist anxiety and pruning There are few better barometer’s of someone’s character than their music collection, but until recently you had to be invited to their home to get a look at it. In other words, before the iPod and iTunes, getting such an intimate peek into a person’s soul required, well, a certain level of intimacy. But now people are exposing their taste in music—or hopeless lack thereof—at workplaces, college campuses and coffee shops, thanks to iTunes’s ability to share music over a network. Similarly, a quick gander at someone’s iPod reveals the same information.

This has lead to a new kind of music snobbery called playlistism. Music snobs amuse themselves by laughing at a colleague’s collection of showtunes, or the hopelessly pretentious jazz of the goatee-ed guy at the other end of the dorm. The flipside of this phenomenon is a new kind of fear, playlist anxiety, or worrying what other people will think of you based you your music. For some people this fear is significant enough that, knowing that others might be looking, they groom their collections to put them in the best possible light. Playlist anxiety has led to playlist pruning. (This isn’t just speculation, either. Researchers in Palo Alto recently studied office workers and found many were anxious about their image as revealed by their music library—and managed it appropriately.)

Isn't that the new plotline for Lost?


Speaking of Lost, more snarky comments about KrinkleFace (and the rest of the cast of Lost)
Oh my God, Kate has another expression besides gazing pensively into the horizon! Give this girl an Emmy!
The ubiquitous hanging tendril MUST END NOW!

From Scooter Libby’s novel The Apprentice:

“At age ten the madam put the child in a cage with a bear trained to couple with young girls so the girls would be frigid and not fall in love with their patrons. They fed her through the bars and aroused the bear with a stick when it seemed to lose interest.”

...and that's where Donald Trump got the idea for his TV show.
