I first saw this shown on The Gruen Transfer. It’s a pastie that a woman would place over her nipples to make it look like her nipples were erect. I’m trying to figure out the target market for this thing. Is it for women who want to have that raisins-trying-to-escape look but who do not want to endure cold air on their chests or who are too poor to afford ice? That’s a very specific demographic.
Also I did not know that there are women who would consider this a good look. Yeah sure I guess this can be a fun novelty thing for couples but that’s not what the ad is going for. They are actually suggesting that you as a woman would want to have your high beams on in public, where people will stare at them. Not just on a date but in serious board room meetings where I guess people should really be paying more attention to your nips than what it is that you are presenting. Way to break the glass ceiling! You go girl!
I am not making this shit up. Watch it below.
p.s. The site is defunct. I can’t even buy it for erm … research purposes. *ahem*

If you are a fan of The Daily Show and The Colbert Report living in Australia, you can either watch it by subscribing to Foxtel or you can watch the clips online after it has aired on Foxtel. This was a fair situation I thought. But this appears to have changed. Now, you can only catch the shows on Foxtel – the online clips are no longer available to Australian fans and from what I read on the show’s forums, to all fans outside of the United States.
This is not the first time that it has happened either. It does not make sense that they would do this once, reverted back to the status quo and then revoke access again. What has changed? They are not saying. Currently the thread on the forum about this issue runs 15 pages long.
Using the add-on, add a header of “X-Forwarded-For” with a value of “220.127.116.11″ or any IP that you know is an IP address in the US.
Set the add-on to be “Always on” in the Options. On the Firebox button (big orange one) click on Options – Add-On Bar, then click on the Modify Headers icon in the Add-On Bar (bottom-left corner) and select “Start”. (thanks to helpful comment from Annoyed below)
I heard Dean Martin’s rendition of “Memories Are Made Of This” used in an RAC insurance TV ad and loved it. It was apt and they don’t make songs like these anymore. I couldn’t find the TV spot so the above will have to do.
I then got thinking of how vintage songs have been used in my one big love: video games. And here are my favourites.
Selina stumbled upon this awesome webcomic called Happysad, done by a Belgian by the name of Jeroen Vanstiphout. And I love it! He depicts situations that speaks to me greatly because check it, this is what my life is like currently with respect to love and relationships:
Plentiful female friends. Platonic. Bang balls.
Not only that but they are also quite attractive. I’m not bragging. Like all of them. Which adds to my frustration. Bang balls.
All the nice girls are taken. So far anyway but I’m working on this one. But still … bang balls.
The following two strips describe my love life or lack thereof in a nutshell. So yeah what is it about me and married women, or otherwise unattainable ones?
Alec Greven is 9 and already knows what took me 34 years to know about women. He wrote an essay called “How To Talk To Girls” as part of a creative writing exercise in school which impressed his teacher and principal. They then suggested it be published which it was.
He based his writings on his observations of boys and girls in school and on the playground. Some of his gems include:
“Comb your hair and don’t wear sweats. Control your hyperness (cut down on the sugar if you have to). Don’t act desperate.”
“It is easy to spot pretty girls because they have big earrings, fancy dresses and all the jewellery … pretty girls are like cars that need a lot of oil.”
“Sometimes, you get a girl to like you, then she ditches you. Life is hard, move on!”
So it’s been one whole week since Barack Obama became the 44th President of the United States, and the first African-American to do so. And for a very short while there, late night TV show hosts and comedians were probably wondering how they can make jokes about the new president without being racist or offensive about it.
Well, they didn’t wonder for too long.
And here’s another good one touching on white liberal guilt, except now that there’s a black man in the White House … it’s black people’s turn to be condescending and patronising. Heh.
