Super Weird Jacket Gives Men the Feel of Being Pregnant

With the finest things that come to the world with new technology, some weird things make their way as well. We have already seen a menstruation machine for men, and for those who want to go the extra mile, scientists have created a jacket that simulates pregnancy. Made by researcher Takayuki Kosaka and his team at the Kanagawa Institute of Technology (KAIT), the jacket a.k.a Mummy Tummy lets men experience the feel of nine months of weight gain around the stomach and breasts.

Talk About Creepy: Severed Hand iPhone Case

Talk About Creepy: Severed Hand iPhone Case

I’m at a loss of words of describing this “thing” it’s basically about strapping a severed hand to the back of your iPhone, apparently for some sort of weird companionship with the phone thing. Yep companionship through a severed hand, that’s the best kind. The Dokkiri Hand Case is available in two flavors, a Kid’s Hand, and the other is a Lady’s hand case modeled after the hand of the company’s COO. Costs $64.

Zombie Toe Sandals

Zombie Toe Sandals

Having disgusting feet is one thing, making them look rotten and zombie-like is a totally different level of gross. They’ll probably increase your appetite for brains. Though we aren’t sure if they’ll really help you run if someone comes along looking for a headshot for the person with zombie feet. Priced at $15.

Company Packs Cremated Ashes Into Ammunition

Company Packs Cremated Ashes Into Ammunition

Alabama based company Holy Smoke LLC is a offering a way to “honor” or “preserve the memory” of late loved ones by having their cremated ashes turned to ammunition. You have the choice of getting 100 rounds of rifle ammunition, 250 shotshells, or 250 pistol cartridges, in the caliber/gauge of your choosing. It may all be about preserving memories, but we can’t help but think that a substantial part of the purchase is going to be for vendetta and revenge. As some people like to go out the musical way, others may very well choose the ammunition way for an end.

Chinese Couple Sell off Their Kids to Play Online Games

Chinese Couple Sell off Their Kids to Play Online Games

Games are fun, and raising kids is a tough job, especially when there’s the compulsive need to continue playing games, probably without the morality extension pack. Chinese couple Li Lin and Li Juan first met each other in 2007 at an Internet Cafe and their love for online gaming set their relationship running. A year later they had a child whom they left at home and went playing at an internet cafe. A daughter followed in 2009 and the couple promptly sold her for RMB 3,000 ($500) to fund their gaming habit.

Paper Talks of Penis Size and its Effects on Economics and GDP of a Country

Apparently, like many other things in the world, the economy is also controlled by penis size. A paper authored by Tatu Westling of Helsinki University talks of the relation between penis size and its relation to a country’s GDP. Here’s something from the abstract of the paper:

It can alone explain over 15% of the variation in GDP. The GDP maximizing size is around 13.5 centimetres, and a collapse in economic development is identified as the size of male organ exceeds 16 centimetres. Economic growth between 1960 and 1985 is negatively associated with the size of male organ, and it alone explains 20% of the variation in GDP growth. With due reservations it is also found to be more important determinant of GDP growth than country’s political regime type. Controlling for male organ slows convergence and mitigates the negative effect of population growth on economic development slightly. Although all evidence is suggestive at this stage, the `male organ hypothesis’ put forward here is robust to exhaustive set of controls and rests on surprisingly strong correlations.

Harry Potter Characters as Babies

Harry Potter Characters as Babies

Babies are scary as it is, until you see the Voldemort baby, then they’re just terrifying. Doll artist Tracy Ann Lister sat down to create baby styled, baby sized dolls adapted to Harry Potter characters. And they are some of the scariest we’ve ever seen. We’re pretty sure if the Dark Lord met baby Voldemort here, he would promptly wet his pants.

Woman Buys Invisible Art For $10,000

Woman Buys Invisible Art For $10,000

The “image” you see above is very similar to the “artwork” actor James Franco made. The work belongs to the Museum of Non-Visible Art which works on the premise that the works of art don’t exist physically, but are “imagined” by the artist. The piece was titled “Fresh Air” and a woman paid $10,000 to get hold of the piece. The money will be used to further the case of the museum of non-visible art.
