A Singapore lifestyle product brand seems to have taken a page off today’s design trend of taking design inspirations from everyday objects. The label, called Wheniwasfour, has turned a local icon into a bag and the result is way more LOL. But it is only as quirky only if you understand the local culture in Singapore. You see, over in Singapore, when you take away local style coffee (which is brewed from the good’ol coffee socks, btw), you’d get it in a transparent plastic bag with somewhat elastic (if you stretch hard enough) strings for carrying. Drop a straw in it and you all set. That’s a stark contrast to most western countries where paper cups are the receptacle of choice.

In this society where everything moves at breakneck speed, it only makes sense that picking a date (and potential life-long partner) should be efficient and it is perhaps this very reason, dating apps like Tinder exists.

Continue reading Tinda Finger Swipe Right Thousands Of Tinder Profile So You Don’t Have To
I am not aware of any man who harbors the secret desire to have a beer belly, AKA dad bod. I mean, seriously, no man would want an oversized belly that looks like they are three months pregnant. However, in some rare instances, there are man folks who sought out this alternative look, but if you happen to be one of those odd balls, well then, the good news is, the Dadbag is here to help. Conceived by one Albert Pukies, the Dadbag is “made for people who want a Dad bod without eating junk food,” or perhaps, for those who simply love a dash of quirkiness in their life.

By now, you should have already known that China have made a name for itself for sharing services. Virtually everything can be shared, including basketballs, stools, umbrella, and the obvious like luxury cars and bicycles, but now, a Beijing-based startup has taken the sharing economy into a new era with sex dolls sharing. Yes, really! Sex doll sharing is a thing now, in China. Just when you thought there aren’t any more things the Chinese people could shared, Ta Qu (literally translates to ‘his pleasure’ and when pronounced sound a lot like the English word ‘touch’) thought that renting sex dolls will be a hit as opposed to the usual full ownership. After all, who would want to bang the same chick over and over again, right? Silicone or not. Pfff. Continue reading Everything Can Be Shared In China, Now Including Sex Dolls. Yes, Really!
While futuristic, the biggest security concern of the newly announced iPhone X would be the face recognition technology. Apple claimed that the face recognition technology employed on the anniversary iPhone is ‘robust’, but when questioned about the ‘what if’ scenario whereby a user is hypothetically being force by a perpetrator to unlock it, Apple’s SVP, Craig Federighi, said that there is a couple of ways to prevent. One such method would be “gripping the buttons on both sides of the phone” (essentially squeezing it) which will temporarily disable Face ID. Continue reading In China, There Are Face Masks That Will Prevent Others From Unlocking Your iPhone X When You Sleep
October is around the corner and you know what this means. This means Halloween will be upon us very soon. Besides dressing in costume to scare the shit out of the spirits that walk the Earth on this day, a Halloween decor is a must for completeness sake. More so, if you intend to have a party going on this day. Speaking of which, in addition to having a cobweb-laden decor to spruce up the creepy atmosphere, you may want to consider something creepier to crank of the creep-on-meter, such as the Bleeding Hand Candle by Etsy seller Creepy Candles. Continue reading Bleeding Hand Candles Might Just Be The Creepiest Halloween Decor Ever
LEGO sets are generally wholesome toys because it is, after all, designed with kids in mind. But one Chinese LEGO knock off company, Xingbao Building Blocks (also known as Xīng Bǎo Jīmù), kind of broke new ground recently with a released of a “LEGO compatible” set that actually lets you or, god forbids, your kids, built a whorehouse, AKA brothel. It is said that prostitution is one of the oldest ‘profession’ in human civilization, but does it warrant a “LEGO compatible” set based around prostitutes’ home base? I mean, seriously, what are you going to tell you kids? Like “oh, these are whores and that’s the building they operate in.” And junior, “they get bang for monetary return, and oh, those lecherous-looking (knock off) minifigs are their customers.” Continue reading Chinese LEGO Knock Off Lets You Build A ‘LEGO Whorehouse’. Wait, What!??
Human civilization may be a grand 6,000 years old, but lot of things on our lovely little blue marble remain undiscovered. Case-in-point: the Bhupathy Purple Frog. While belonging to the frog family, this newly discovered species of frog looks remotely like the amphibian family it belongs to. Scientists have discovered the frog dwelling in the Western Ghats mountain range in southwestern India, but instead of naming it based on the region the creature was found, it was named after the late herpetologist Dr. Subramaniam Bhupathy who perished at Ghats in 2014. Continue reading New Species Of Frog Discovered In S.W. India Is Somewhat Of An Abomination
When I first heard about Helmfon, a ginormous noise isolating helmet, I had to do a double take. I glanced at today’s date, making sure I did not accidentally hitch a ride on the time machine and went back to April 1st. Anyways, as it turns out, Helmfon is real as you and me. Now, there are quite a few ways to keep noise out when you are working. If constant yakking colleagues distracts you, you can probably suggests to the management to acquire Bane mask-like Hushme for each chatty individuals, but if the ambient noise gets to you too, you can either grab a pair of noise canceling headset or you could look to the aforementioned Helmfon.
