Baculum Collection













"The Baculum is a unique bone found in the penis of most mammals. This bone aids in copulation when mates have only a short encounter and need to perform quickly. The Baculum is sometimes referred to a “hillbilly or mountain man toothpick” and can be utilized as a coffee stirrer. (my emphasis.) The largest Baculum in the mammal kingdom belongs to the walrus, which can reach a length of 30 inches."

Songbird

"A team led by ex-Winamp-er Rob Lord today released a preview edition of Songbird, a desktop media player that offers an open source alternative to services like Apple's iTunes and the Windows Media Player. Instead of connecting to one locked store full of DRMmed goods, it can connect to any and all available music (and video) on the internet."

This sounds like the daschund's dangly bits

I can't get Blogger to upload photos again. It's flaky all the time but impossible in the evenings. I posted this photo and the one in the last post by using picasa, which takes about twice as long for each post. It's a right bastard and no mistake.

Quitomzilla - Firefox Extension






"Quitomzilla helps you quit smoking while you surf the web or wait for new emails, showing the cigarettes, money and time you have saved since you quitted."

Stupid. While the positive reinforcement from the money saved may be motivational, the constant reminder of cigs is definitely not.

The Pee Tree

"Joa Herrenknecht has designed the Pee-tree urinal for public spaces. His bright ceramic white colour is a strong signal that can be seen from far – making it accessible when in urgent need. The trunk offers a perfect place for messaging, e.g. "I was here" or "done that" statements."

Psychic Pets

"One of the most strange stories of pets finding their masters happened to Private James Brown of the 1st North Staffordshire Regiment when he was sent to join the Great War in France in August 1914. On the 27th September, his wife wrote to him to break the bad news that Prince, his Irish terrier, was missing. But Prince had already joined his master in the trenches. The dog had somehow travelled over 200 miles through the South of England, crossed the English Channel and then walked another 60 miles of battlefield to his master's front line position at Armentieres."

Princess Diana Talking Action Figure




















"She has bandy legs, a huge behind, hair like a crash-helmet, wild make-up, a hooked nose, no chest and ankles that make her look like she's got two club feet. Still, if you could blow the doll up, most men would choose to have sex with it before Camilla."

This awful thing also comes out with Diana phrases such as "I sit here in sadness," and "I'd like to be the queen of people's hearts."
