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?

Masturbation's Rules

Students at the University of Michigan put up a flyer to illustrate the detriment of masturbating in group bathrooms - because pipes in the halls are not meant for semen!!!

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.
