A Pinch of Genius

Meysam Movahedi's latest concept certainly isn't the first revolutionary tweak to the tried-and-true power outlet, but it's easily one of the favorites. You'll need a pretty deep wall to make something like this work (in theory, of course), but the result is nothing short of brilliant.


Typical Men

It's rude to stare, honey.


A Movie Weekend

"Do you believe in love?"

Quirky and heart-warming. If you like Michael Cera kinda movie, you shouldn't miss this one. Overall, it's 6.9/10 from me - thanks to the episodes of true-life tales that make it more interesting.

"Never lose sight of what is really important."

Wonder if Obama has any influence on this animation crew... All in all, it is a good fun and very Walt Disney. Some ranked this over "UP"...but I'd say "UP" is probably the best movie of the year. This one got 8/10, in my opinion.

It's like a combination of awkwardness and humour. It definitely has its flaws, but then what marriage doesn't? 8/10

Homemade Eggnog

A fresh-tasting blend of cold milk, cream and eggs seasoned with sugar, vanilla and nutmeg and spiked with dark, rich liquor, homemade eggnog is a far cry from the cloying, chemical-laden stuff that comes from cartons. And the biggest surprise? It's quick and easy to prepare.

(This makes 2 drinks)

1/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 egg
1 1/2 Tbs granulated sugar (can be adjusted according to taste)
1/8 tsp vanilla extract
a pinch or so of freshly grated nutmeg
1/3 cup milk (I used 2 percent)
1 1/2 ounces of quality dark rum (bourbon would work well too)
For best results, measure out all ingredients in advance and make sure the milk, cream and egg are well-chilled. In a blender, beat the egg until frothy. Then beat in the sugar, vanilla, nutmeg, and liquor. Slowly pour in the milk and cream while the blades are still in motion. (If your machine has a detachable measure/fill cap in the center of its lid, pour the liquid ingredients in through this small opening to minimize any splattering.) When all ingredients are thoroughly combined, pour into small cups or glasses and garnish with grated nutmeg. Use any leftovers for French toast the next morning.

Anti-Aging Tip

Tip description / details:
My tip is to have more sex. Sex increases all kinds of wonderful hormones and things. Who doesn't have the most radiant glow after lovemaking? To stay looking young into her 90's my grandmother always recommended regular sex. She was a firecracker, but she looked good till the end.

A man, and an hour.

How to prepare:
Sexy lingerie, etc.

How to use:
Uh, this is up to you. Grandma always said that she and grandpa still 'did it' (her words) once a week into their 90s! Well, he was a little younger: she died at 101, he was 96. I don't know if he was using Viagra or what, but she was always pretty proud of herself and never was shy about telling other why she still looked so good. And I will give it to her, she was a very glamorous woman, and never looked a day over 75

Results (observed by submitter):
So far, so good. And it's not like getting a root canal, after all! You just need a willing partner I guess.

Cosmopolitan, Really?

"I...have so many words about this cover. First, she's wearing my jeans from '93. Second, as one of the many readers who emailed us about this pointed out, she's wearing Pamela Anderson's face from '96. I must add that she's also wearing Pamela Anderson Lee's wig from '95, and Marie Antoinette neck's from 1794, otherwise known as none. Third, according to this cover, now I have to get a sexy VAGINA? Are you SERIOUS? SERIOUSLY, COSMO, ARE YOU SERIOUS? Worrying that your vagina is not sufficiently sexy is like being concerned that your ear drums are flabby: IT IS RIDICULOUS. Don't we have enough to worry about -- unemployment, teen pregnancy, insufficiently voluminous hair, and the possible resurgence of clogs -- without being told we need to be sitting around wondering if our vagina looks frumpy? STOP THE MOTHERF'ING MADNESS. EVERYONE'S VAGINA IS FINE. WORRY ABOUT THE CLOGS. And the fact that Amanda Bynes is now a Botoxed 42 year old Malibu matron who is totally wearing Uggs with those jeans."


Her comment is spot on! What the hell is sexy vagina?? Maybe a man can tell me about this?

iPhone Users Are Delusional

Many people I know are frightfully attached to their iPhones. They treat them as if they were a peculiar and exotic lover, one they can hardly believe they have managed to seduce.

The finely calibrated minds at Strand Consult have taken this analysis to a particularly simple conclusion: iPhone users are, the consultants say, really quite nuts.

The Strand thinkers released an opinion entitled "How will psychologists describe the iPhone syndrome in the future?." It focuses on the sorts of people who buy into Apple's great success.

"When we examine the iPhone users' arguments defending the iPhone, it reminds us of the famous Stockholm Syndrome--a term invented by psychologists after a hostage drama in Stockholm. Here, hostages reacted to the psychological pressure they were experiencing by defending the people that had held them hostage for six days," Strand declared.

The implication is surely that Apple has mugged millions of people with its beauty, dragged them off to a very dark cellar in some barren land, turned them into slightly bonkers Barbarellas, and then recruited them as soldiers for the cause.

This is the sort of thing of which the Church of Scientology is normally accused. But for some strange reason, it's a rather chilling but pleasant shower to read something that isn't mere worship.

(I was laughing, reading this. But I'm sure this applies to more than iPhone, but Blackberry, and so on.)

Jazz & Winter

The first real frost of the autumn/winter today. Cold and crisp. Blue sky and a gorgeous sunrise. The drive to work was enjoyable and some Madeleine Peyroux seemed the perfect accompaniment.

To have me crystalised
And you've got the faith

Before I'm paralysed
Do I have to keep up the pace
To keep you satisfied

Naked Coke

Designer Harc Lee has created a “naked” Coca Cola can that forfeits Coke’s typical bold red and white stripes in favor of au naturale silver. The aluminum can is created without using any paints or dyes, and stands to greatly reduce pollution and energy use associated with producing and recycling soda cans.

10 Things Guys Don't Get about Women (Spot on! lol)

Maybe we're biased, but guys like to think of ourselves as pretty easy to understand (sex, food, sex, sports and, um, sex). Women, on the other hand, have a trailer-load of quirks that just don't translate in the male universe. Here are a few female obsessions that guys think are totally weird.

10. What does our zodiac sign have to do with anything?

If the sun, moon and stars have so much control over our compatibility, we wonder what a bowl of Lucky Charms can do. Got milk?

9. Why do you need so many pillows?
Unless there's a surprise orgy scheduled for later, we don't see the need for 20 "decorative" pillows on the bed. Wait, there aren't any secret orgy parties, right?

8. Why are greeting cards so important?
It may have taken you hours to select the perfect card with just the right message, but it'll take us five seconds to toss it in the recycling bin. Sorry, we don't do Hallmark moments. Lingerie makes for a much better memory and memento.

7. Who needs candles when we have electricity?

If you're looking for low lighting, the glare from the TV as we're playing Madden should suffice. If it's the pretty flame that fascinates you, feel free to utilize the one on the stove to make us a grill cheese sandwich.

6. Why do you need to post everything on Facebook?

We don't smile for pictures and we definitely don't spend hours in the mirror practicing our pose, but apparently you girls do and build digital shrines to yourselves. Unless there are a few naked shots in the bunch, we're not interested in seeing slideshows of your entire life -- or how cute your cat is.

5. Why do you like bubble baths so much?

When it comes to bathroom activities, we enjoy standing as much as possible, so give us a shower (and a urinal) any day. Besides, since when is lying in a tepid pool of your own filth sexy? The bubbles don't help either.

4. Is that a purse or a suitcase?

The good thing about a home is it provides a great place to store all your stuff. There's no need to lug a week's worth of items around in a bag that's bigger than most small dogs. When we go out, we only carry what we need in a lovely invention known as the pocket. We're sure you've heard of it.

3. Is crying the answer for every emotion?
You cry when you're sad. You cry when you're mad. You even cry when you're happy. We just don't. It's less confusing that way.

2. If you don't like her then why is she your "friend"?
We just don't get why y'all hang out with someone on a regular basis and then talk smack about her behind her back. We don't like catty, but be sure to call us if there's a catfight.

1. Four words: "Sex and the City"

We thought show's cancellation would help, but with a second film adaptation on the way we'll have to suffer through even more comparisons to guys who don't even exist. What grown man wants to be called "Burger"? Now if there was a character with a cool name like "Mr. Big" we might be more inclined to pay attention. Oh, there is a guy named Mr. Big? So, how much sex actually happens in this city again?

Laptop Radiation

We have all heard of the dangers of electromagnetic radiation coming from laptops, and what this radiation might be doing to our bodies. The fact is many appliances give off some radiation including television sets, DVD players, satellites, microwave ovens, computers, and of course mobile phones.

The risk of developing health problems because of radiation exposure is supposed to increase dramatically if we spend a great deal of time in close proximity to this radiation and particularly when we use wireless technology, which many of us do when we use our laptops. The main concern with laptops is that they sit on your lap, which just happens to be incredibly close to your genitals and therefore the word on the street is that it can make you infertile and can cause cancer. It sounds terrifying doesn’t it?

According the World Health Organisation there is no danger from Wi-fi as the radiation levels are much lower than the threshold for an effect on humans. It’s all so terribly confusing making it difficult to know what to believe. What we do know is that radiation can be harmful in large doses. So how do we know if we are suffering from the effects of radiation exposure?

Symptoms associated with Electromagnetic radiation exposure

Although the following symptoms are associated with radiation exposure, it doesn’t mean that radiation is the cause of the symptoms.
- Fatigue
- Inability to concentrate
- Headaches
- Psychological problems
- Anxiety and Depression
- Insomnia
- Memory lapses
- Dizziness
- Feeling breathless
- Nausea

Life Lessons from an Ad Man

Advertising adds value to a product by changing our perception, rather than the product itself. Rory Sutherland makes the daring assertion that a change in perceived value can be just as satisfying as what we consider real value -- and his conclusion has interesting consequences for how we look at life.
