Tag: Things that make you go hmmmmm

For the metrosexuals amongst us…

It now looks like you can now let your inner woman run loose, if you are one of those down under dudes with doubts about what what’s many or not:

If you’re a man and have ever wanted to dress in women’s lingerie a firm has come up with the perfect product for you.

HommeMystere are hoping their new range of lingerie for males, which includes thongs and padded bras, will change the landscape of men’s underwear.

The Australian firm said their under garments include ‘comfortable men’s panties that really do fit, bra straps that don’t fall off the shoulder, teddies that don’t ride up halfway through the night and quality soft fabrics that feel great for all day wear’.

Maybe I am just too old and set in my ways to see anything but a chance to make fun of some people in dire need of a kick in the ass, but then again, this stuff is what passes for modernity these days. WTF happened to the proud people of Crocodile Dundee that they are now dressing up in chick unmentionables? Hey I am no prude, but damn it, leave the hot lingerie for the womenz. As Seinfeld so aptly said about another topic close to this one: “Not that there is anything wrong with that”….

Things you might not tell your grandchildren happened to you…

Yeah, I know tatcher died and I should be writing about that, but I was way more fascinated by this story:

Toronto police are looking for four female suspects who they say allegedly sexually assaulted a 19-year-old man.

The incident happened during the early morning hours of Sunday, March 31, after the man met the four women at a nightclub near King Street and University Avenue. The man left the club with the women who offered to drive him home, according to a written statement from Toronto police.

“The complainant was instead driven to a parking lot in the area of Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue where he was sexually assaulted by all four suspects,” said the statement.

After the suspects let go of the man, they were seen leaving the area in a vehicle that resembled a silver Honda SUV.

Now, before you get all “OH, YEAH BABY!” about this story, read the following:

“Other men will say for example, ‘Oh, he’s so lucky,’ like that was actually a positive thing when it wasn’t,” Ms. Pietsch said. “I think that that just feeds into the myth that sexual violence is something the victim wants.”

Police say the four female suspects are all white, in their thirties, and approximately 5’4” and 200 pounds. The women were wearing short black dresses with high heels and no nylons. The SUV driver had a British accent with short blond hair and a tattoo of wings on the back of her neck. Another woman had longer, dark hair with red dye at the bottom.

Which brings me to the real reason I am wasting your time with this story. From the comments:

I geuss that includes not mentioning that one of the attackers had a harpoon scar.


This sounds too crazy to believe..

But the Chinese state media is reporting that they had a major stretch of an elevated highway collapse from a fireworks explosion. Now I understand the Chinese likely build this thing with sub par materials, but I have a hard time picturing a truck full of fireworks of any kind doing this sort of damage to a structure that is supposed to support real heavy weights. And you have to wonder when the article points out that…

State TV broadcaster CCTV said eight people were confirmed dead and 11 injured after seven vehicles were recovered from the wreckage. The death toll appeared likely to rise: The official Xinhua News Agency said the collapse smashed and buried at least 25 vehicles.

Earlier reports by China National Radio and some other outlets of 26 people killed were later removed from websites, without explanation.

An 80-meter (260-foot) stretch of a major east-west highway collapsed in Mianchi county in Henan province. It scattered blackened chunks of debris and shattered the windows of a nearby truck stop.

Now I know the Chinese are not very safety conscious, and the article even mentions that, but I have a horrible time accepting that a major piece of a highway collapses when a firework truck goes kaboom out in the open. The mechanics and physics of this event leave me wondering WTF went on. That must have been some serious haul of some serious explosives, or some of the shoddiest construction possible to cause such a collapse. Maybe it was both. Or maybe….


Cheesey movie, but I wonder if there was something else that happened here and it we are getting told some bull.
