The Funniest Condoms

Oh my goodness! I’ve been in a fit of giggles since discovering this tongue-in-cheek website all about condoms. 

The very fun site Holy Kaw! first directed my attention (which became undivided very quickly) to a cheeky Tumblr called New Condoms. Nope, it’s not about bringing you the latest and greatest news about prophylactics. It’s about making you laugh. The creative minds behind the site take corporate slogans and place them on condom wrappers. Here are a few knee slappers: 


So silly, right?

The Easy, 5-Minute Yoga Routine You Can Do At Your Desk

Are you having a stressful day? Try this quick yoga routine that you can do right at your desk to reduce stress and boost feel-good hormones. I just tried it, and I feel so much better. Give it a try...

Ahhhh.. feel better now? Now, get ready to Blush :)
We already know that yoga can make us feel really zen, but, um, did you know that certain positions and moves leave some women feeling, well, yogasmic?:P

The Daily Beast took a look at the subject recently, and interviewed a woman who shared her yogasmic experience: "The first time it happened to me I was in Sharon Gannon’s class at Jivamukti, and I was in forward bend,” says Kelly Morris, a yoga instructor with a cult following at the Shala Yoga House in New York City. “I was breathing and concentrating and suddenly, ‘Whoa!’”

Rumors of the elusive yogasm have circulated for years, but sex experts, like Dr. Jeffre TallTrees, say they are a real phenomenon. Apparently I was born yesterday, though, because I've never heard of this!

1870s FACE OFF

Move over, eBay user who found the 1870s photo of Nicolas Cage (well, don’t move over, actually stay there. Your picture is great.)

A different photo collector has uncovered this picture from 1860 indisputably depicting a dapper old timey John Travolta:

19th Century Nicolas Cage AND 19th Century John Travolta??? You know what that means…

We can finally make 19TH CENTURY FACE/OFF:

New Exercise Fad Also Doubles As Cool Gay Sex Toy

Here is a new — and hopefully real — addition to the world of fitness fads. It’s called the “Free Flexor” and bills itself as a “flexible dumbbell” that allows you to work your muscles in any direction. 

But it kind of looks like a double-shlong with two heavy rubber balls on the end. Perhaps this is like a kinky Rorschach test to see if you’re a pervert or not, only everyone who takes it is obviously the biggest pervert. I almost wonder if this is even a real piece of exercise equipment or just a gag made solely for the purpose of making fun of it on the internet. I mean camman. The Marine? The dude watching the Marine? The line about it “making your muscles cry”? I mean wait a second, is this gay porn? You guysss. You’re good. I’ll give it to you, you’re good. I fell for it, I’ll admit.

Which reminds me of this perverted South Park video...  bwahhhhahahhahahah :D

David Beckham Goes Not-So-Undercover

Here’s the problem (the only problem) with being David Beckham: Going undercover is very nearly impossible. That’s because when you’re as hot as fresh sh*t, there really isn’t any way to downplay that hotness, be it disguise or otherwise. But that’s exactly what The Ellen Degeneres Show tried to do last week, when they outfitted Mr. Beckham in a red polo and khakis and tried to convince customers he was just a regular ol’ Target employee and not a human Louis Vuitton garment bag made out of shark abs.

Nice try! Because even in this pitiful get-up, customers were like “Waaaiiiidaminuuuute. You’re David Beckham!” It doesn’t help that he was standing next to a giant sign with his name on it. Yes, people recognized him. But unlike myself in this situation, they did not force him to spread his seed via hot glue gunpoint. Shame indeed.

Life's a Beach With Hugh Jackman

Recently, Hugh Jackman went to the beach in his native Sydney, Australia, where he reminded the world that he is a beautiful slab of meat atop which is perched an impossibly handsome face that just makes you want to give up everything so that, one day, you, too, could be the guy’s beach buddy and things would just progress from there.

Sorry, what? Got lost there for a second.

Anyway, here’s what life would be like if it were perfect, and you got to spend the day with Hugh Jackman at the beach. Man oh man, that guy really doesn’t like to wear shirts, huh?

Adidas Rolls Out Star Wars Wampa-Fur Shoes

I’ve never felt the need to own any clothing with animal fur, but when fashionable vengeance for Luke Skywalker comes into play, we can make an exception.

Behold, Adidas’ new Star Wars “Wampa Fur” Sneakers, made with actual white fur from the ice cave dwellers of Planet Hoth:
The website admits that it’s actually “faux Wampa fur made from horsehair,” so Adidas didn’t actually slaughter hundreds of fictional ice creatures to accessorize their footwear, but the internet’s blind Star Wars nostalgia doesn’t split (Wampa) hairs. The shoes do cost $150, but really, can you put a price on Star Wars merchandise? You definitely can? Well good.

Coming off the heels (shoe joke!) of the Back To The Future NikeMags, it appears that shoe companies are in a full-on nostalgia arms-race. First one to invent the jumping boots from Super Mario Bros. gets my money!

30 Truths I’ve Learned In 30 Years

  1.  There comes a point in life when you get tired of chasing everyone and trying to fix everything, but it’s not giving up.  It’s realizing you don’t need certain people and things and the drama they bring.
  2. If a person wants to be a part of your life they will make an obvious effort to do so.  Don’t bother reserving a space in your heart for people who do not make an effort to stay.
  3. If you want to fly, you have to give up the things that weigh you down – which is not always as obvious and easy as it sounds.
  4. Doing something and getting it wrong is at least ten times more productive than doing nothing.
  5. Every success has a trail of failures behind it, and every failure is leading towards success.  You don’t fail by falling down.  You fail by never getting back up.  Sometimes you just have to forget how you feel, remember what you deserve, and keep pushing forward.
  6. When you get to know people with different ethnic backgrounds, from different cities and countries, who live at various socioeconomic levels, you begin to realize that everyone basically wants the same things.  They want validation, love, happiness, fulfillment and hopes for a better future.  The way they pursue these desires is where things branch off, but the fundamentals are the same.  You can relate to almost everyone everywhere if you look past the superficial facades that divide us.
  7. The more things you own, the more your things own you.  Less truly gives you more freedom.  
  8. While you’re busy looking for the perfect person, you’ll probably miss the imperfect person who could make you perfectly happy.  This is as true for friendships as it is for intimate relationships.  Finding a companion or a friend isn’t about trying to transform yourself into the perfect image of what you think they want.  It’s about being exactly who you are and then finding someone who appreciates that.
  9. Relationships must be chosen wisely.  It’s better to be alone than to be in bad company.  There’s no need to rush.  If something is meant to be, it will happen – in the right time, with the right person, and for the best reason.
  10. Making a thousand friends is not a miracle.  A miracle is making one friend who will stand by your side when thousands are against you.
  11. Someone will always be better looking.  Someone will always be smarter.  Someone will always be more charismatic.  But they will never be you – with your exact ideas, knowledge and skills.
  12. Making progress involves risk.  Period.  You can’t make it to second base with your foot on first.
  13. Every morning you are faced with two choices:  You can aimlessly stumble through the day not knowing what’s going to happen and simply react to events at a moment’s notice, or you can go through the day directing your own life and making your own decisions and destiny.  
  14. Everyone makes mistakes.  If you can’t forgive others, don’t expect others to forgive you.  To forgive is to set a prisoner free and discover the prisoner was you.
  15. It’s okay to fall apart for a little while.  You don’t always have to pretend to be strong, and there is no need to constantly prove that everything is going well.  You shouldn’t be concerned with what other people are thinking either – cry if you need to – it’s healthy to shed your tears.  The sooner you do, the sooner you will be able to smile again.
  16. We sometimes do things that are permanently foolish just because we are temporarily upset.  A lot of heartache can be avoided if you learn to control your emotions.
  17. Someone else doesn’t have to be wrong for you to be right.  There are many roads to what’s right.  You cannot judge others by your own past.  They are living a different life than you.  What might be good for one person may not be good for another.  What might be bad for one person might change another person’s life for the better.  You have to allow people to make their own mistakes and their own decisions.
  18. Nobody is perfect, and nobody deserves to be perfect.  Nobody has it easy.  You never know what people are going through.  Every one of us has issues.  So don’t belittle yourself or anyone else.  Everybody is fighting their own unique war.
  19. A smile doesn’t always mean a person is happy.  Sometimes it simply means they are strong enough to face their problems.
  20. The happiest people I know keep an open mind to new ideas and ventures, use their leisure time as a means of mental development, and love good music, good books, good pictures, good company and good conversation.  And oftentimes they are also the cause of happiness in others – me in particular.
  21. You can’t take things too personally.  Rarely do people do things because of you.  They do things because of them.
  22. Feelings change, people change, and time keeps rolling.  You can hold on to past mistakes or you can create your own happiness.  A smile is a choice, not a miracle.  True happiness comes from within.  Don’t make the mistake of waiting on someone or something to come along and make you happy.
  23. It’s much harder to change the length of your life than it is to change the depth of it.
  24. You end up regretting the things you did NOT do far more than the things you did.
  25. When you stop chasing the wrong things you give the right things a chance to catch you.
  26. One of the greatest challenges in life is being yourself in a world that’s trying to make you like everyone else.
  27. Enjoy the little things, because one day you may look back and discover they were the big things.  
  28. Anyone can make a difference.  Making one person smile can change the world.  Maybe not the whole world, but their world.
  29. Everything is a life lesson.  Everyone you meet, everything you encounter, etc.  They’re all part of the learning experience we call ‘life.’  Never forget to acknowledge the lesson, especially when things don’t go your way.  If you don’t get a job that you wanted or a relationship doesn’t work, it only means something better is out there waiting.  And the lesson you just learned is the first step towards it.
  30. Regardless of how filthy your past has been, your future is still spotless.  Don’t start your day with the broken pieces of yesterday.  Every day is a fresh start.  Each day is a new beginning.  Every morning we wake up is the first day of the rest of our life.

Words and Phrases a REAL Man Must NEVER Use

Hi mga dude! Saw this very "interesting and funny" article (by Lourd de Veyra) from today. Bet ko lang ishare :D Here you go..

The spirit of the manly man is under siege from all sides. It is under assault from an alarming wave of health consciousness, emotional sensitivity, and renewed appreciation for the “finer” things in life. Dark forces in the universe have conspired to transform red-blooded, steak-chomping, unwashed, beer-swilling potbellied males into helplessly delicate doilies. Here are some terms that must be erased from the manly man’s vocabulary:

"BONGGA" – Increasingly becoming the most evil phrase invented in recent linguistic memory. Two syllables with the greatest damage to masculinity.

"ONE MARGARITA, PLEASE" – Nothing corrodes at the heart of manliness than a silly cocktail glass with salt around the rim and a sickeningly bright liquid that resembles diluted urine and bearing almost zero traces of alcohol.

"CUTE NG BAG MO" – Or just about anything that involves the word cute together with any piece of fashion-related accessory. Shameful minus points for familiarity with French and Italian labels and the words "fake eyelashes."

"I'M ON A DIET" – This, along with "no rice," "diet Coke," "brown rice," and that crime against all logic and decency, "vegetarian chicharon."

"CARBS" – What, afraid you won't get your own giant Bench underwear billboard on Edsa?

"WORKOUT TAYO, DUDE" – If brotherhood is truly global, then we must have the decency to avoid inflicting on fellow members of the species such frightening words.

"ROBERT PATTINSON" – Interchangeable with "Edward Cullen." The fact that we are even familiar with him is indicative of the cracks in our fortress of manhood. Minus 50 macho points for any man who can provide spirited discourse on the Twilight series.

"SPA" – When the correct term should be "massage parlor."

"SALON" – There was a time when the world turned on its tranquil axis and men got haircuts from barbers–in barbershops. It was a time of harmony and peace: rusty scissors and murderously sharp straight razors were used, and talcum powder, rubbing alcohol, warm towels, and an assortment of mysterious burning liniments were slapped on napes, necks, and faces. There were no such things as "creative directors," "senior stylists," "shampoo and blowdry," and other silliness.

"BORA" – Ugly, lazy contraction of that noisy, overcrowded island with uglier reggae music and Starbucks. Takes on more emasculating levels when the "R" is not rolled.

"HINDI KAYA NG POWERS KO" – Nothings screams "Darna!" with more passion and silver glitters.

"GREEN TEA MOCHA FRAP WITH EXTRA CINAMMON" – God designed the male species specifically to avoid the consumption of overpriced drinks with pointlessly intricate ziggurats of whipped cream and chocolate.

"THINGIE" – Is it the insufferably cute sound? Or do you say to yourself, "There goes a sensible human being?"

"FAVE" – Sometimes, attempts at terseness tend to misfire.

"INTERIOR DESIGN" – Le Corbusier chairs? Mediterranean walls? Minimalism? Vintage decoupage screens? Mark Hampton? Muji storage shelves? Why, the cave is our natural habitat--and Orocan its only sensible furniture.

"TOTE" – Used in a sentence: "I tote I saw a pussy--not pussy cat. Just pussy."

"LET'S PARTY!" – Manly men will get drunk, stoned, laid, beat the crap out of each other, swim in vomit, tossed unconscious into a cab, and wake up in a strange sidewalk somewhere in Montalban. But they will never, ever fucking party.

"GOSSIP GIRL" – Self-explanatory.

"ORGANIC" – Remember: The soil is the domain of rich, New Age-types. The hideous factory operated by evil multinationals is where the manly man derives his nourishment; MSG and preservatives are on top of his daily nutritional requirements. The proper synonym for “organic” is “fucking expensive.” The only time the manly man should be using the word “organic” is when referring to drugs.

"LOW"- ANYTHING – “Low-fat,” “low-sodium, “low-calorie,” “low-sugar,” etc. All products containing such ghastly labels contribute to a dishonorable age where all you do is drool and whine to the nurse about your unchanged diaper. Also interchangeable with any deceitful phrase ending in…

"-FREE" – i.e. “cruelty-free,” “guilt-free,” “lactose-free,” “caffeine-free.” How about freeing yourself from all this silliness?

"BULLY" – More often than not used by the bullied and not the bully. No bully ever refers to himself as a “bully.” But such is life. The school ground is a microcosm of the animal kingdom. There’s the hunter and there’s the hunted. Through evolution, animals learn to protect themselves from predators, thus developing natural defense mechanisms. The bullied should stand up for himself by stabbing the bully in the neck with a fork (The Columbine Massacre, on the other hand, is taking things too far). Calling on Mommy and Daddy for backup eventually does more subliminal damage to the kid’s sense of self-worth.
There are unverified studies announcing that bullying eventually results in criminal behavior, alcoholism, drug use and similarly erratic behavior—on the part of the bullied. What a load of crap. Most of the bullies I knew back in school are now in jail or rehab, if not confined to shitty jobs. Sometimes life has a way of balancing out things. Geeks get bullied, but they eventually grow up to be titans of industry or Silicon Valley barons. The fate of bullies? Well, they can be overworked and underpaid security guards of the office building of some remote branch.

"PERSONAL TRAINER" – A natural extension of such unmanly phrases as “abdominal exercise,” “Healthy Options,”  “aw shucks,” and “scarf.” Enrolling in a gym is one thing, but paying extra for someone to motivate you is another. How about taking it easy on those cheeseburgers and those choco-strawberry sundaes?

"FRO-YO" – Yogurt is about as masculine as Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud.” Yogurt swerved in swirls and embellished with candied fruits, nuts, caramel syrup, and, the most absurdly ironic topping of all, muesli (as if it could add more years to your life) is the dessert equivalent of a Richard Simmons workout video. Bonus: “MILK TEA”

"THE NOTEBOOK" – The ultimate chick flick by way of existentialist sap. The element of “death” appears to lend a sense of gravity in this book-slash-movie. Shame on any guy who shed copious tears over this melodrama (thankfully unwatched by me; and basing on the stories, I have no plans of buying the DVD). If you really want genuine emotional catharsis, go see Marley and Me. Neil Young said, “Only love can break your heart.” He forgot to say dying dogs.

P.S. Bato Bato sa langit..

Perks to Being Single

To all my single friends..  here are the reasons to be happy that someday is not today ;-)

1. The Opportunity to Check Out All Those "What–Ifs"
A random person you meet at a party, an acquaintance you’ve had a crush on forever, maybe even a co–worker: when you’re single, you can pursue these "what–ifs" and see where they lead. More often than not, these little sparks of romance turn out to be nothing, but at least when you’re single, the not knowing won’t drive you crazy.

2. Not Shaving.
Your legs, your beard, or any other part of your body. Not shaving, and sparing those extra 15 minutes in the morning just because you don’t feel like it, is the luxury of the single person.

3. Wild Nights! Wild Nights!
It’s pretty nice to be able to go out, and stay out as long as you want, without having to worry about whether your significant other is tired, or their feet hurt, or you said you’d call, or they have an early start in the morning, or you’re "so old!", said in a faux–complaining voice and regretful smiles as you head out the door.

And if, at midnight, a friend calls and invites you to come out, you can just go.
And if, at two a.m., you meet someone you like, you can just kiss them, or go home with them, or just get their number.
And if, at four am, you feel like getting a slice of pizza, or a whole pizza, you can, no problem. Who’s going to care?

4. Quiet Weekends! Quiet Weekends!
Conversely, if you want to spend an entire weekend ensconced in your room, and watch Seasons 1–4 of the West Wing, and order delivery, and sleep all afternoon, and wear your rattiest sweatpants, and stalk people on facebook cause you’re just in that kind of mood, you can. You can ignore all phone calls and basically disappear from the world, without feeling too neglectful or guilty.

5. Sleeping Diagonally on the Bed
Can we just like, let go of the illusion that sharing a bed with someone is actually comfortable? It’s fine. But having an entire bed to yourself is great.

6. Not Having to Hang Out with Anyone Else’s Friends
You have your own friends, and it’s hard enough to find time to hang out with them. Sort of nice not to have to spend a Friday night hanging out with someone else’s friends, no?

7. Guiltless Flirting
Flirting is one of life’s simplest pleasures, and easiest confidence boosters. Maintain eye contact just a beat longer than normal, engage in a little repartee, touch someone’s arm, send a few playful texts that may or may not lead anywhere. Puts an extra spring in your step, doesn’t it?

8. Better Brunch Stories
Your crazy, roller coaster dating stories make you the most popular person at brunch. Your dating and hook–up stories may not end in "happily ever after," but they’re always entertaining.

9. Big Decisions Are Yours And Yours Alone to Make
If something happens in your life — a job opportunity, a lifestyle change, a sudden trip, a need for something new — you don’t have to consult anyone else. You don’t have to consider anyone else. Your decisions affect you and you alone — so you never have to compromise or turn down an opportunity for someone else.

10. The Remote Control Is Yours And Yours Alone
And you’re going to watch that Toddlers And Tiaras marathon in its entirety.

11. Eat Whatever, Whenever You Want
Something about being in a relationship seems to put a lot of pressure on meals: whereas a single person can just pour themselves a bowl of cereal for dinner, a couple will more often than not feel the need to "go get food" or put together an entire meal. You can enjoy eating without feeling the pressure of making a meal a big production.

12. You Can Have Sex With Someone Else If You Want To
People in relationships can’t.

13. Privacy
People always say that one of the pleasures of being in a relationship is finding someone with whom you can always be yourself, and do anything in front of. But, just for the moment, enjoy the fact that you don’t ever have to see or hear anyone clipping their toe nails, and vice versa.

14. Spontaneity
Couples can be spontaneous — together. Single people can decide on last minute trips, afterwork plans, or impromptu weekend activities without checking with anyone.

15. First Dates
First dates are scary, and they don’t always turn out well, but they’re always, always laced with possibility. Every first date you go on could be your last for a while, really, so enjoy the excitement, the butterflies, the hope, and the unknown. It’s something you’ll miss once you’re happily settled.

Java Drinkers are Happier, Say Experts

Coffee time! If you're looking for an excuse to sneak out of the office today and grab a cup of Joe, here's some news for you...

According to a brand new Harvard study of more than 50,000 women, those who drink two or more cups of coffee per day were about 15 percent less likely to develop depression in their lifetime. And drinking four cups of coffee per day? A 20 percent reduced risk for depression!

While the researchers are careful to say that the study doesn't prove that coffee fights or prevents depression. But, draw whatever conclusions you like from the findings, I say. And go have another cup! 

Nicki Minaj’s Chicken Wing Necklace Sure Is …A Chicken Wing Necklace

At this weekend’s iHeartRadio concert, everybody was there, including Nicki Minaj, who outdid Lady Gaga by wearing possibly the weirdest accessory in the history of Nicki Minaj Wearing Accessories: a hot pink fried chicken wing.

It doesn’t matter if it’s real or not (it’s not), but it definitely picks up where Gaga’s meat dress left off. Is it an entire dress made of freshly sliced bovine cuts? No, but you can’t reinvent the wheel. So you might as well just turn to the chicken community for assistance with helping make an outfit “pop,” to speak.

Or, y’know, sizzle, batter, and fry. Come and get it!

Amazing Miniature Origami Sculptures

Artist Anja Markiewicz is some sort of hybrid meditator and artist who produces miniature origami sculptures that fit on the tip of your finger. Each tiny work takes her days to complete, and are made using a toothpick to shape and a piece of paper no bigger than an inch wide.

Now, ask yourself…. would you have the patience to make these?

Meet Your Future Winner Of X Factor

The X Factor premiered this week to hoots and accusations that it is exactly like American Idol. Simon Cowell, a lucid and angelic Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and my new spirit animal L.A. Reid takes place in front of a giant studio audience versus the intimacy of the Idol judging panel. Check out this contestant named Melanie Amaro singing Beyonce’s “Listen.” 
I’m fairly sure we’ve got ourselves a $5 million winner here :D 

And to those suggesting it’s an American Idol Redux, I present to you this GIF:

Martha Stewart Is Now Motha, A Butterfly Queen

Meet Motha, The Becky Winged Wonder

During the day, she goes by Martha Stewart, a multimedia magnate who hosts a talk show, runs a magazine, and is generally perceived as the iciest lady to ever turn arts and crafts into a multibajillion-dollar career.

But at night, PAK!! she sprouts wings …on her eyelashes. And then her hair turns into a mod bowl cut. And she goes all Couture Grandma on everybody and looks crazy hot for her age, especially on the most recent Halloween-themed cover of her magazine, where she basically cements herself as the hottest lady named Martha in history (sorry!).

Weird Things Banned by Governments

It's not just San Francisco that likes banning weird things: Oddee rounds up 11 notable examples from around the world:

Australia: Porn Featuring Small Breasts

Are you an adult woman in Australia with a cup breasts? According to Australia, you don't exist. Do you happen to be a man who likes to watch adult films starring small-breasted women? According to the Australian government, you secretly love child porn. If none of this makes sense to you, then you must not work for the Australian Classification Board who has banned multiple adult films from distribution because, in their opinion, the actress' smaller breasts made them appear to be under 18.
While the law doesn't outright ban porn featuring small breasts, the ABC has the right to ban all adult films that depict a woman as being under 18. While this idea sounds fine in theory, the group has actively rejected some films based solely on the breast size of the actresses involved.

China: Game Consoles

Most game consoles are made in China and Chinese prisoners are often forced to play World of Warcraft so the government can collect their loot and sell it to other players, which is why it seems so utterly bizarre that China doesn't allow the sale of gaming consoles. The ban took place back in 2000, when the government expressed its concern that the country's youth would waste their time playing games instead of working. Even so, gamers are still permitted to buy non-console games, making the ban notably ineffective –which is probably why it is not extensively enforced.

Greece: Video Games

China's not the only country to ban video games. Greece did too, although for a much different reason. In 2002, the government tried to crack down on electric gambling machines, but their legislators wrote the law so broadly that it managed to cover all forms of electronic gaming machines –meaning all video games. Amazingly, someone was even caught and arrested for violating the poorly written law by playing an MMO in an internet café. They were actually forced to serve time in prison for playing games.
Fortunately, after receiving pressure from the EU and video gamers everywhere, the law was found to be unconstitutional by the end of the year.

China: Avatar in 2D

While the army in Avatar is undoubtedly American, the idea of people siding with an indigenous population against an imperialistic force is something that China was not comfortable with. That's why shortly after the release of the movie in China, the authorities decided the movie could only be shown in 3D. Since there are very few 3D theaters in China, the move was effectively a ban on the film.

Russia: Emo Clothing

Plenty of people don't like emo fashion, but while it's not that weird for a parent to tell their kids they can't wear that crap outside the house, it's entirely different when the whole government takes such a drastic stand. When the Russian government was trying to stop high suicide rates amongst teens though, they decided emo fashion were to blame.
The government went so far as to dub the style “a threat to national stability” before banning people from wearing emo clothing to public schools or government buildings. Don't worry sullen teens of Russia, you can still listen to all the forlorn emo music you want, you just can't dress like you listen to it.

China: Reincarnation Without Prior Consent

On the face of it, the idea of banning someone from reincarnating without obtaining the state's permission is preposterous and something they absolutely can't control. In reality though, the measure is their way to trying to take control of the Tibetan Buddhists (including the Dali Lama himself) by trying to rule over one of their most sacred beliefs.

Iran: “Western” Hair Cuts

Like many Middle Eastern governments, Iran hates the impending spread of decadent Western culture. In order to better protect their people from the depraved culture of Europe and Northponytails and spikes. Barber shops that fail to follow the law can be shut down and penalized in the years since the law took effect. America, the government of Iran has banned all hair cuts that are not included in their list of government-approved styles. Banned styles include mullets,

Saudi Arabia: Valentine's Day

Similarly, Saudi Arabia finds Valentine's Day to be in violation of Muslim beliefs. In order to ensure residents don't secretly send gifts to their Valentine's, the government orders all florists and gift shops to remove anything red or otherwise considered to be a symbol of romance prior to the holiday. Apparently the ban on the holiday isn't entirely successful and the country now has a thriving Valentine's Day black market where lovers can buy red roses and other tokens of romance at around six times their ordinary prices.

Denmark: Ovaltine and Marmite

In America, it's practically impossible to purchase milk that isn't fortified with vitamin D, but in Denmark, this would be completely illegal. That's because the country has put a ban on all fortified foods, effectively banning fortified breakfast cereals, Ovaltine and Marmite.

Update: According to the Denmark Embassy in England, it's not illegal to sell or possess Marmite, just to advertise it.

Denmark: Most Baby Names

Fortified snacks aren't the only thing Denmark wants to put an end to. The country also has some of the strictest child naming guidelines in the entire world. In fact, citizens of the country can only select names on a list approved by the government or they must seek permission from the government for an exception to the rule. Right now, the officially approved names list contains only around 7,000 names –about 3,000 for boys and 4,000 for girls.

China: Jasmine

After the “Jasmine Revolutions” in Tunisia, Chinese protestors were inspired to spark their own revolution. As a result, authorities cracked down not only on the rebels, but on the flower itself. The plant is now banned in the country, as are songs about the flower and text messages including the word “jasmine.”

Do your Brain a favor: Meditate

Humankind has developed plenty of coping mechanisms over the centuries, from long walks to hard drugs. While many of these methods have endured, not all of them are in our brains’ best interests, writes Alice Walton at Forbes. Smoking and drinking, for example, can lead to a vicious cycle of craving. Meditation, on the other hand, has long helped us get away from ourselves—and now there’s hard data showing it works. 

We know that a wandering mind can lead to unhappiness, since our untethered minds tend to drift toward our worries. When the mind is wandering, a certain set of brain cells are activated. Meditation can help us disconnect from this portion of our brains, a study finds; instead of focusing on themselves and their troubles, expert meditators can stay in the present. Their brains even seem to chaperone themselves, recognizing and fighting off self-centered thoughts. What are you waiting for? lesh meditate na :)

Every Time you Watch Jersey Shore, A Book Dies

This is a public service ad campaign being run by Random House. It suggests that every time you watch an episode of the addictive MTV reality show Jersey Shore, a book commits suicide (one imagines by self-flammability). Which, if that’s the case, remove all sharp objects from your libraries vicinity because nothing, not even the death of books, is going to get me to stop watching Jersey Shore. Waheheheh :D

Facebook Timeline, Or Who Needs Baby Books?

Aye yaye yaye. Facebook’s redesign continues to grow, and now we’ve been introduced to some sort of newfangled product called Timeline. Mark Zuckerberg calls it “all the stories, all your apps, a new way to express who you are.” In other words, it’s basically 100% YOU. Or something.
Says Gizmodo:
As you move down your Timeline, it condenses your story the further back you go. It’s Time Machine for your life. In order to navigate to specific years, Timeline navigation on the right-hand side is available for users to choose a year. The timeline for each year shows users the most important Facebook posts of that year.
So now your autobiography is available to the girl that bit your face in kindergarten. She can see just how important your life is because that’s officially a thing. Still confused? Me too. Here, this vague, heartwarming video might make you feel better (or not):

Brangelina 2.0 hahahahahaha

The latest photos and pictures shared by Justin Bieber on Instagram... 

Even if you dont have an Instagram account ! ;-)

Sesame Street’s G Is My Favorite Show

This is “G,” a hilariously double-entendred title to their Glee mash-up, featuring a felt-butt-chinned Mr. Schue, a bitchy be-banged Lea Michele, an obviously Asian muppet, and Mercedes, who is full of muppety sass. And a slightly more butched up version of Sue Sylvester.
But honestly, to name the gayest sketch ever on Sesame Street G is G for GENIUS. “Just a small town G… just a city G…” I mean, kudos Jim Henson’s henchpeople, you have really nailed this one.

Hot Busty Korean Dance Move by Sistar19

Check out this super hot dance moves by Korean Pop duo Sistar19. Surprisingly this rehearsal video is actually more popular than the actual music video. Watching these babes do the “body wave” is very much seductive and goes well with their beautiful jugs. Bet na bet ko ang moves ;) Mga frendship na beks, praktis na to.. :P

Bekimon Joins the 2011 Miss Universe

Leave it to Bekimon for presenting this hilarious Miss Universe 2011 contestant introduction. He is so damn witting and funny in this one. Here are few memorable quotes in this video.

Ulam sa Umaga, Ulam sa Tanghali, Ulam sa Gabi – Argentina
Nasira damit ko, Nasira ang pantalon ko, nasira shorts ko pa – Tahiti
Walang Tricycle, Walang Pedicab, Walang Taxi e di mag – Egypt
Hi Kuya, Hi Kuya, Hi Kuya – Haiti
Nakawala ang Aso, Ang Aso Nakawala, Ayun tumatakbo, di mo itinali – Italy Mo

Ernie Goes #ScarletJohanssoning

Scarlett Johansson got hacked! Yes, it’s old news, but the world will never fully recover from being gifted with the opportunity to see NEKKID PICTURES (DUH)! The pics rapidly became a meme, in which #scarletjohanssoning was the new planking. The “hot, new thing” online quickly became (and remains) the act of taking an over-the-shoulder picture in front of a mirror that, like Scarlet, exposes one’s derriere. You can even submit your own pictures, since that’s how we live now. (“Please send pictures of yourself — posing, naked, like Scarlet Johansson in what was meant to be a private picture — to a stranger! Theenks!”)

Anyway, the best one yet is easily the cutest, if you can call it cute (you can). We’ll call it “Jim Hensonning”:
I really wish I had the opportunity to comment on Ernie’s a**, but this is good enough. Haha :D

Whiten Your Teeth Naturally

Teeth-whitening products aren't cheap, which is why I loved learning about the foods that can polish and scrub your teeth and get rid of stains naturally...

USA Today had the scoop on the foods, according to dental experts, that can scrub away stains and keep them sparkling white. The so-called "toothbrush foods" are as follows:

1. Apples and celery: Crunchy fruits and veggies are great for clearing away plaque and polishing the teeth and gums. They also increase saliva productions which can protect your oral health, say experts.
2. Strawberries: Think of them as nature's teeth polishers. Strawberries produce an enzyme called malic acid, which is said to keep teeth white, according to a spokesperson for the Academy of General Dentistry.
3. Cheese: Good news for cheese lovers! Your favorite white cheddar, and other cheeses, contain a type of lactic acid that helps zap tooth decay.

A Little Happiness Reminder for YOU

How much do we fret about all that we should be doing, when we ought to just be happy in the moment? 

It's OK to let the emails, the dishes and the work-to-do's pile up every now and then and allow yourself a little web surfing, a little magazine-reading, a long hot bath, or (gasp) some TV time. I have come to believe whole-heartedly that these little moments of peace and fun are restorative and so good for health. 

I think that we, as a society, are so programmed to feel guilty about enjoyment that we've lost the art of just being happy in the moment. And that's what I'm doing right here in my own little space, right about now :D

Meet Thailand's pride: BANGTIT

Khemmikka Na Songkhla, the professional titty slapper of Bangkok (more like Bangtit) who slaps the beauty right into women all over Thailand.
Over in the mythical land of Thailand, ladies who want to be plumper in the chichi area but don't want a surgeon's scalpel cutting into their body go to Miss Songkhla who uses an ancient secret technique called Smacking Yo Bitch Titties Up to bring a woman closer to Christina Hendricks proportions without surgery. Miss Songkhla uses her magical hands to pinch, slap and knead fat into chichis as the soundtrack from Vibes plays in the background.
Miss Songkhla's titty slapping boutique was in danger of being shut down when one woman claimed that getting her breasts Ike Turnered gave her cancer. The Thai Health Ministry stepped in and conducted a 6-month study where they closely examined Miss Songkhla's chichi abuse techniques. After all was said and done, and they cleaned up the mess in their chonies, they ruled that not only does Miss Songkhla's techniques not cause breast cancer, but some subjects' chichis actually grew a few cup sizes. Miss Songkhla's titty slapping hand is government approved!
That right there is the perfect job. You get to legally whoop a trick for a check? Count me in ;)

Let's help Baby Hugo

Let's try to do a commitment: to do one good deed per day. Large or small, it doesn't matter. Self-sacrificing or not, extraordinary or mundane, it doesn't matter. Just one thing every day, that's all. I hope we can start today by helping my dear friend Paolo's nephew Baby Hugo:)

Let's join them on this journey, if you will, and think about the difference you can make in Hugo's life and even yours. Thanks squammy friends! God bless

Dear All,

First of all Me and Family apologize for these plea. However this week is Mitochondrial Week, and as many of you already know, our little Hugo my nephew
has been diagnosed with a COMPLEX 1 MITOCHONDRIAL DISORDER. This is a disease that affects the cells ability to transfer energy, and ultimately leads to organ failure.
Life expectancy is not long, and as of yet there is no known cure.

Our little Hugo is a fighter, and we hope science makes a break through soon, but as this disease is rare, funding for it is very low. My sister Abby has joined
the Australian Mitochondrial Society, and asks for you all to make a small donation to the Australian Mitochondrial Disease Foundation, in order that a cure may be found, hopefully in time for little Hugo.

You may log on to learn more about this disease and
make a donation.

We thank you all sincerely for your help.

Thank You Very Much,

Paolo Tolentino

P.S. can you please send to your other friends as well thank you very much

A Still From A Gay Porn Or A Picture From A Boxing Weigh-In?

Here's Canelo Alvarez and Alfonso Gomez holding back their true burning desires (Just let me pretend, okay!) as their peen holes share the same breath at a weigh-in in L.A. on Friday before their match on Saturday night. The only way to look at these pictures is by letting this song be your soundtrack:
"Amor prohibido" is definitely what we're all murmuring on las calles.

A Norwegian Bank Brings a DREAM to Life

In this commercial for a Norwegian bank, Elisabetta Canalis' (and ours too, haha) dream is brought to life when a blondie wakes up and finds out she has just done the impossible: married George Clooney. The truth is, we'd all make that "barfing up my life" face if we married multimillionaire-yummy George Clooney.  I wonder who the woman is...she did a great job at wondering what the heck happened. :D
