For anyone who is a fan of M.I.A. you will probably LOVE Miss Kittin. She's like the French version of M.I.A. and the French keeppopping out greatacts. It's that same electronic, beat driven kind of music with spoken words and short verses. However I will say that Miss Kittin has beats that are more house/club than M.I.A.'s experimental drum and bass.
The Night Bright Tyre comes with LED lights built into the rubber of the tire. When the wheels are spinning you get the stunning Tron ring of light effect. Perhaps if your legs can go fast enough you can also leave a trail of light behind you. In addition to your bike looking like a BAMF the tires are also good for safety and that other irrelevant nonsense.
The tires aren't for sale YET, but I'll take a pair when they come out.
JGL talks about the concept behind HitRecord and is generally a BAMF.
ANYONE can join the site and post ideas for movies, music, art, photography, etc. on the site. And other users will give you feedback and if they love it enough they may help you in making that idea a reality. (Giuseppe Levitt gives a good example in the video). And the best part is that if the final product somehow generates revenue, everyone who helped make it will get money for it.
I'm signing up now and I suggest everyone check it out. There are so many creative people in this world, Hit Record allows talent from anywhere to collaborate and come up with great art.
Directions: For the Bulbasaur shot, simply mix all three ingredients into a shot glass. For the Ivysaur cocktail, shake all ingredients and pour over ice in a rocks glass. Add a stem of mint as a garnish. Finally, to evolve to the Venusaur cocktail, shake a Bulbasaur shot together with an Ivysaur cocktail, along with an additional shot of lime vodka, lime juice, and sprite, and pour over ice into a highball glass. Again, add a few leaves of mint as a garnish.
Experience supersonic hearing: If you're stuck chatting up a mumbler at a cocktail party, lean in with your right ear. It's better than your left at following the rapid rhythms of speech, according to researchers at the UCLA David Geffen School of Medicine. If, on the other hand, you're trying to identify that song playing softly in the elevator, turn your left ear toward the sound. The left ear is better at picking up music tones.
Overcome your most primal urge: Need to pee? No bathroom nearby? Fantasize about Jessica Simpson. Thinking about sex preoccupies your brain, so you won't feel as much discomfort, says Larry Lipshultz, M.D., chief of male reproductive medicine at the Baylor College of Medicine. For best results, try Simpson's "These Boots Are Made for Walking" video.
Jessica Simpson may be fine for some....I'll stick to my favorite Team America player.
Clear your stuffed nose: Forget Sudafed. An easier, quicker, and cheaper way to relieve sinus pressure is by alternately thrusting your tongue against the roof of your mouth, then pressing between your eyebrows with one finger. This causes the vomer bone, which runs through the nasal passages to the mouth, to rock back and forth, says Lisa DeStefano, D.O., an assistant professor at the Michigan State University college of osteopathic medicine. The motion loosens congestion; after 20 seconds, you'll feel your sinuses start to drain. (Side note: Golden Hot Pants hasn't tried this personally but I'm waiting for my next immune system breakdown to try it. Want to confirm if this really works).
Cure your toothache without opening your mouth: Just rub ice on the back of your hand, on the V-shaped webbed area between your thumb and index finger. A Canadian study found that this technique reduces toothache pain by as much as 50 percent compared with using no ice. The nerve pathways at the base of that V stimulate an area of the brain that blocks pain signals from the face and hands. (Really want to test out this one too. Next time I have a tooth ache for sure!)
Unstitch your side: If you're like most people, when you run, you exhale as your right foot hits the ground. This puts downward pressure on your liver (which lives on your right side), which then tugs at the diaphragm and creates a side stitch, according to The Doctors Book of Home Remedies for Men. The fix: Exhale as your left foot strikes the ground.
Thaw your brain: Too much Chipwich snowball or Cold Stone too fast will freeze the brains of lesser men. As for you, press your tongue flat against the roof of your mouth, covering as much as you can. "Since the nerves in the roof of your mouth get extremely cold, your body thinks your brain is freezing, too," says Abo. "In compensating, it overheats, causing an ice-cream headache." The more pressure you apply to the roof of your mouth, the faster your headache will subside.
Breathe underwater: If you're dying to retrieve that quarter from the bottom of the pool, take several short breaths first—essentially, hyperventilate. When you're underwater, it's not a lack of oxygen that makes you desperate for a breath; it's the buildup of carbon dioxide, which makes your blood acidic, which signals your brain that somethin' ain't right. "When you hyperventilate, the influx of oxygen lowers blood acidity," says Jonathan Armbruster, Ph.D., an associate professor of biology at Auburn University. "This tricks your brain into thinking it has more oxygen." It'll buy you up to 10 seconds.
Being able to hold your breath underwater is great for getting amazing underwater photographs.
I have 2 dogs & I was buying a large bag of Pal at Big W and standing inline at the check out.
A woman behind me asked if I had a dog.
On impulse, I told her that no, I was starting The Pal Diet again although I probably shouldn't because I'd ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms.
I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and that the way that it works is to load your pants pockets with Pal nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry & that the food is nutritionally complete so I was going to try it again.
I have to mention here that practically everyone in the line was by now enthralled with my story, particularly a guy who was behind her.
Horrified, she asked if I'd ended up in the hospital in that condition because I had been poisoned. I told her no; it was because I'd been sitting in the street licking my balls and a car hit me.
I thought one guy was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard as he staggered out the door.
I just want to call attention to a group that calls itself The Fun Theory and aims to "change people's behavior for the better" by making every day tasks fun. All of their ideas are just so creative and forward thinking. I wish these ideas could be implemented on a massive scale all over the world. Private investors, where you at?

50. Oscar the Grouch used to be orange. Jim Henson decided to make him green before the second season of Sesame Street. How did Oscar explain the color change? He said he went on vacation to the very damp Swamp Mushy Muddy and turned green overnight.
