If you have money to throw around, you can go with excessive bling like getting your car plated with gold and crystals, buy ridiculously overpriced yo-yos or other millions of crazy things. Nothing however, comes close to pooping gold in a golden throne. Designer Tobias Wong and artist Ken Courtney have taken care of that part, with the creation of these capsules that made of, and filled with 24 karat gold. Apparantly, the capsules are edible, and are priced at $425.
Obviously, if WikiLeaks can inspire sanitary napkin ads, it can also give way to condoms. Put Julian Assange’s face on something that has the word “leaks” and people will give you attention. People intending to use these should probably be worried, as the slogan reads We leak more than the truth, leaks aren’t exactly the thing you’d want with these. Pack of 12 costs $8.37.
Giving men another chance to play with themselves, and create scores in the process, Sega has created the Toylet. The system comprises of pressure sensitive sensors in the urinal, and a screen at eye level. Four games are on offer, one of which allows players to blow up a girls skirt, depending on the intensity of your stream, while the other would let you pit your stream against that of the dude who used the urinal before you.

Wikileaks has put many governments around the world into trouble, and then there are other … “leaks” that have been putting humanity in trouble since forever.

Well, you can’t argue with that.
Of all the things in the world, when you choose chairs for creating chandeliers you can be sure the thing is going to turn out weird.

It appears Vitra has been producing chandeliers made from mini chairs for a long time, so we’ll assume people buy these things.
Since we are on the topic of crooked buildings, this crooked building of Poland definitely deserves a mention.

It currently serves as the place for Wonky Pub, where, we assume, people do get really high.
