Leave it to the Japanese to come up with the craziest shit you’ve ever seen. I guess “shit” isn’t quite the right word. Introducing the Toylet video game system, created by Sega. If you haven’t already figured it out from the clever naming of the device, this system is hooked up to a urinal and played using your urine. That’s right, your urine. By aiming your, uh, “stream” at a sensor on the inside of the urinal you control what happens in the game. The demo shows a scene where you progressively blow up a female news anchor’s dress. There’s no real details beyond that as to how the game is actually played (does aim count? Stream strength?).
Honestly, I debated on if this actually fits on this site. It’s either really stupid, or totally awesome. Currently, it’s only available in Japan and with all the conservative, PC crybabies in this country, it’s unlikely we’ll ever see it stateside. The link below actually shows a demo of the game mentioned above….without actual drunk, peeing bar patron of course.

Absolutely hilarious. If you’re tired of all the iPhone 4 craziness, you’ll love this video.
WickedLasers reveals “lightsaber-ish” laser powerful enough to blind/burn (Courtesy Dailytech.com)
Wickedlasers unveiled a new device that pumps out a 1 watt laser beam. While “1” is generally not a very impressive number, it’s more than enough power to blind you instantly and very quickly cause flesh to burst into flames. This cute little device retails at a mere $200 and requires you to sign a “Class IV Laser Hazard Acknowledgment Form.”
I’d like to start out by saying this is pretty damn cool. It’s a real life laser beam. Star Trek geek, Star Wars geek, whatever…we’ve all wanted one of these since we were kids. Geekasm aside, I’m afraid the current state of the people of this planet is just too stupid to wield one of these things like it’s some fantastic new novelty or movie prop. How long before some jackass decides to just shine this out of their bedroom window at a crowd full of people. How annoying is that idiot in the movie theater with the laser pointer circling some guys crotch? Now imagine that same moron has one of these. Whoops, set the screen on fire……or your actual crotch. And I’m sure, just like that annoying laser pointer moron, you won’t be able to tell where that damn flesh burning dot is really coming from. This just seems like a bad, bad, bad, bad idea.
Advocacy Group Calls for Ronald McDonald’s Retirement (Courtesy www.USAToday.com)
Don’t we have more important things to worry about right now? Really, this kind of stuff just makes me grit my teeth and pull my hair out. Do people really think that if they removed Ronald McDonald from the commercials that kids would suddenly stop going to McDonalds? It’s not the mascot’s fault that kids are overweight. It’s the fault of those delicious….savory french fries. Well, that and the parents that decide to shovel fast food to their kids every night instead of giving them a proper dinner. It’s not like kids are going through the drive-thru and buying this stuff themselves. Once again, blame is being passed to something else when people need to step back and look inward. Stop feeding your kids crap all the time and they won’t be fat!! Don’t blame McDonalds for having an eye catching mascot or tasty food….blame yourself for not having the willpower to resist or for simply being too lazy to cook. Pretty simple really.
Man Microwaves iPad, Sells on eBay (Courtesy www.metro.co.uk)
In another case of why eBay is filled with complete wackjobs, we have this guy. Buys an iPad, syncs it up to the 3G network, for some reason copies all his data to his desktop, then nukes it. Actually put it in the microwave for 18 minutes until it’s a charred pile of plastic and fire. Normally I’d be ecstatic to see something on fire, and normally I love seeing Apple stuff destroyed. But this is just stupid. What makes it worse is that he put it on eBay. What makes it even WORSE is that some asshat is going to buy it!! Everyone involved in this waste of my time needs a series slap in the face and probably a kick in the nuts. Starting with Steve Jobs.
Apparently this is “Art,” and not the first time this guy has done this. He has a long string of YouTube videos of him microwaving other things, including iPhones. It must be nice to have money to waste and time to sit around and microwave random things as “art.” It’s like sitting around bitching about stupid people all day. wait….
Drunk PA Man Attempts to Resuscitate Opossum (Courtesy www.cbs3.com)
I love animals, (not in that way asshats) but I’ve never tried to revive roadkill. *shudder* Donald Wolfe, a 55-year-old Brookville resident, tried just that a couple of weeks ago in PA. According to witnesses, Donald was kneeling near the animal and “gesturing as though he were conducting a seance.” Other witnesses saw him attempt mouth-to-mouth. I’m surprised there isn’t video or pics of this. I’m sure those people stopped to watch in amazement….or disgust. Unintentionally hilarious, Trooper Jamie Levier remarked Wolfe was “extremely intoxicated” and “did have his mouth in the area of the animal’s mouth, I guess.” How do people live stuff like this down? There’s really no coming back from something like this. Can you apply for Witness Protection or something?
