Today we’re going to visit the Museum of Aviation in Kiev where specimen of military aircraft are presented.
The Hövding is an airbag for your head. Mounted in a bulky collar, which can be disguised as a stylish scarf, the bag explodes on when you crash and surrounds your delicate melon with an inflated hood.
Plastics are generally recycled back into oil in massive facilities, but a Japanese inventor has built a tabletop machine that can accomplish the same task safely and cleanly.
Jennifer Love Hewitt’s vagina looks like a disco ball? I’m almost lost for words right now.
If you wish to do some Vajazzling you can get Bijoux Flamboyant Body Jewellery from LoveHoney.
When there aren’t enough members of the opposite sex around, king penguins will pair off into gay couples. In zoos these couples have been given fertilised eggs and successfully hatched them and reared the chicks. Gay penguin couples will often split up and go off to find same sex partners later. The report doesn’t make it clear whether the penguins cycled between same and opposite sex partners.
Some people are trying to suggest that this somehow trumps all the other evidence of gay behaviour in hundreds of species, which is a typically huge logical jump. All it proves is that penguins are mostly bi.
Warren Ellis on the hero-coming-out-of-retirment subgenre. He’s talking about the film version of his comic Red, which I’m looking forward to. I read the first two issues of the comic then, for one reason or another, completely missed the rest of it. Plus the film version has, as Ellis kept pointing out, Helen Mirren with a sniper rifle.
The Irwin tales fall into the unretired spy genre, after a fashion. Irwin has retired from MI6, though he did it far younger than Bruce Willis’ character in Red. After being injured one time too many he called time on a career that was trying to kill him, and has managed to find some less dangerous pastimes to take up his time. Of course, as the Irwin stories unfold, we’ll see him being dragged back in, as well as getting into dangerous situations entirely of his own accord.
