Have Fun With These Silly Condoms

Musical Condoms

Ukrainian scientist has invented a condom that plays music during sex.
A miniature loudspeaker and motion sensor implanted in the condom’s upper cuff provides a range of musical tones during sex. Music volume depends on intensity of love-making and tone varies based on the sexual position.
The condom’s main limitation, however, is primitive sound quality, similar to tones produced by first-generation cellphones. Testing has shown no danger of electric shock to users of the device.

Glowing condoms

Love Light, is a phosphorescent condom that glow in the dark. It’s available in a package of 6 or 12, costing 8.45 and 14.95 euros respectively. To shine, it needs to be exposed to light for 30 seconds, and the condom will glow brightly for about 15 minutes, followed by an afterglow that can last for hours.
Re-exposing the condom to light while it is still on will recharge it and make it glow brightly again. But remember, you should never reuse a condom.

McCondom – Whisky Flavoured Condoms

Combine your binge drinking with your safe sex in one easy step.

A condom with the ruler

Condometricis a condom aimed to measure penis’ length. A condom with the “ruler”, a great idea!
“Condometric is the first prophylactic that measures and shows off the penis’ length. Condometric helps us flaunt what we’ve got. It’s about believing we can handle whatever we wish to take on, regardless of size.”

Kama Sutra Condoms

As if you needed another reason to stay safe in the sack, Kama Sutra Condoms are a set of 64 condoms featuring different sexual positions described in the bible of boinking. Made from latex by Atypyk, they make a great excuse to try some kinky moves with your partner.

MyFace Condoms

Custom printed condoms with your image. Lubricated Latex Condoms FDA Approved with your personal message – Customize your own condoms with your name, picture or whatever floats your dingy.

David Beckham Condoms
A Chinese condom manufacturer uses the LA Galaxy soccer star David Beckham’s image onto its packaging, without permission from him. It just looks like David Beckham is the spokesman for their condoms.
With the help of David Beckham, the brand tops the condom sales in China.

‘Spray-On’ Condom

A German inventor, Jan Vinzenz Krause, has come up with a sprayed-to-measure system that should ensure a snug fit for even the most unusual sizes.”With our technology we could spray a condom on an erect elephant,” he declared, not without a hint of pride.
The aim is for the process to take just 10 seconds but at present the latex drying time is around 20 to 25 seconds. “We’re working to shorten that time,” said Krause.

Celebrating Pac-Man's 30th Birthday

Celebrating Pac-Man's 30th Birthday - here's a rundown of some of the coolest cakes (and cookies, and cupcakes) that people have baked over the years to celebrate others' special days.

1. Classic Pac-Man

Like the game, this cake is comfortingly straightforward.

2. Nontraditional

This wildly elaborate version was cooked up for Omar Kooheji, a sofware developer who wrote about the creation on his blog OHMZ. Judging from the vast amount of chips and soda, this was a gamer's dream birthday.

3. Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man

Behind every yellow orb thing there's a strong yellow orb thing lady, and the members of SC3 (Southern California Classic Collectors) didn't forget that when they whipped up these pair of Pac-Man and Ms.Pac-Man cakes for their October 2006 meeting.

4. Solo Ms. Pac-Man

A bakery called SophistiCakes in Raleigh, N.C.. took it one step farther and created a giant homage to Pac-Man's better half.

5.The Game Cabinet

This brave baker went the nontraditional route, building up instead of out, which always presents the hazard of a cake collapse. On her blog, Glitter Pissing, the baker, Rakka, shared her feelings about the results: "I''m not too happy with either of those. Oh, well. Too late to do anything about it now." We think she's being too hard on herself. There is a tiny coin slot in the front, for Namco's sake!

6. The Impromptu Pac-Man Cake

How many times have you cut a slice out of something and said, "That looks like Pac-Man?" At least three or four times, right?

7. The '80s Homage

The only thing that could make this cake, created by Rachel Martin of Customized Cakes, more '80s would be if John Cusack burst out of it.

8. Cookies

You, too, can bake these adorable Pac-Man and ghost cookies using the tutorial posted by Jocelyn at Snack or Die. It's quite possibly the most ingenious use of a tulip cookie cutter we've ever seen (assuming that one has ever had cause to use a tulip cookie cutter ingeniously before).

9. Cupcakes

With round little yellow dude, rotund ghosts, cherries, and circular food pellets, Pac-Man is basically begging to be reinterpreted in cupcake form. These professionally executed versions come from Montreal's Clever Cupcakes.

10. Just the Ghost, and Nothing But the Ghost, Ma'am.

The total lack of background story supplied with early video games somehow made the conflicts more eerie. Who were the ghosts and where did they come from? And what did they have against Pac-Man? At any rate, we love the spookiness that emanates from this cake's glowing tea candle eyes.

Pretty Perfume Bottles

Filed Under () at 5/22/2010 11:20:00 AM

La Madonna

Jean Paul Gaultier designed these buxom beauties as objets d’art, not just liquid containers, in 1993. Recognize the cone bra?

La Vie Française

These ceramic lovelies would look right at home on Marie Antoinette’s vanity table.

Taj Mahal

Each year, Estée Lauder releases a beautiful, limited-edition, solid-perfume compact; the Taj Mahal was the crown jewel of 2003.

Arts and Crafts

One enterprising artist decorated a plain glass bottle with vintage rhinestone jewelry as a present for friends.

Gunga Din

It might look like something out of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom, but holders like this were very popular in the 1920s and ’30s.

The Glass Menagerie

More examples of Estée Lauder’s exquisite solid-perfume collection. The gambling machine is an especially funny touch.

Guerlain Shalimar

Guerlain’s flagship fragrance has been wildly popular since 1925. This particular bottle is more than fifteen inches tall!

The Jar Collector

England’s Harris Museum’s claim to fame is that it houses the largest perfume-bottle collection in the world. It all belonged to one woman, who bequeathed it to the museum in totality.

The Littlest Bottle in the World

Okay, so it’s not actually the smallest bottle in the world, but Thumbelina sure would enjoy it.

Guerlain in Paris

A stunning display at Guerlain’s Champs-Elysées store.

Coral Cascade

Who wouldn’t love something this beautiful in her Christmas stocking?

Vintage Embroidery

A beautiful petit-point rose graces the front of this vintage perfume bottle from Austria, made by Tompadour in the late 1960s–early ’70s.
