Ummm... Other?

Slow news day or attack of the mutants?

When i sign into my Yahoo mail, i have it set to show me World news headlines so i don't have to look at US politics any more than i already obsessively do. Normally it's... world news.

Today's a bit different:

Good day to stay home.

Someone needs to play Bioshock

"A bunch of Libertarians living in the middle of the ocean on a rig constructed without building codes?... Where do I donate?"

By Jove, She's Right!

"I shall hollow you out and fill you with custard," she said, brandishing a scalpel. "And you will feel oh so much better, for who could be unhappy with custard? And if you are very well behaved, you shall have strawberries besides."

In direct contrast to the ball-hugging Ex-Girlfriend jeans Levi's came out with last winter, three brothers from Newark, NJ bring you the jeans that were meant to sag.

Our patented concept consists of high quality jeans that sag naturally. Our boxers are attached to the waistband of our jeans by snaps. The underwear are detachable and removable. The three rows of snaps are designed so consumers can sag their SAGZ JEANS at different levels without having to constantly pull up their pants, resulting in more time to be active, express themselves and show their SWAG.

According to the website, one of the brothers noticed people were having trouble being active because they kept having to pull their pants up.

"They're holding their pants up not being able to play sports, basically being unhealthy because of the attire they were wearing" Mark Davenport said.

Yes, that's right; it was their pants falling down that kept them from being healthy. I suppose it never did occur to any of these active sports lovers that they could mebbe put some pants on that fit and worry about being stylish when they were done being healthy.

Are Those Feet or Canoes?

My mother always did say my sister's size 7 feet were extraordinarily large. Now she's practically average.

...[A]verage female shoe size has increased to a size six over the last 10 years, and demand for size nines has triggered an 80 percent increase in stocks at the department store, Debenhams reports.

The change is attributed to women's feet becoming broader rather than longer - experts believe this may be due to an increase in average body weight.


"High fashion shoes such as stilettos in larger sizes have to be made much stronger with sturdier load bearing points, able to cope with greater levels of stress and wear."

Reminds me of the plot to Kinky Boots (which, just between you and me, wasn't all that great of a movie).

Is Maxwell Smart Running the Agency?


In its German-language report, Focus magazine quotes an unnamed intelligence official as saying the highly detailed plans had disappeared.

They purportedly show extremely sensitive aspects of the building's construction, such as the alarm system, anti-terror installations, emergency exits, cable routes and sewers.

German espionage is either very, very sad, or it's a clever ruse to throw off the enemy by appearing to be totally incompetent.
