Seen here looking like hipster Clown Santa, French inventor Christian Poincheval poses with a CG version of a pill he invented that can allegedly make farts smell like roses, violets or chocolate. The pills contain 100% all-nature ingredients (i.e. fennel, blueberries and seaweed) and cost €10 (~£8, ~$12.50) per jar of 60 pills. Obviously, I recommend taking at least two bottles before sitting down to Thanksgiving dinner.
Mr Poincheval said he came up with the idea for the pills one evening when he was enjoying a hearty meal with some friends.”Our farts were so smelly we were nearly suffocated. Something had to be done,” he said.
So he began researching natural ingredients that would reduce flatulence and after months of experimentation came up with the recipe for his pills.
If you’re spending today stuck at the airport with your flight delayed or canceled because of inclement weather, spare a thought for the some hardy souls in Siberia: While East Coast airports brace themselves for a much-hyped winter storm, passengers at the Igarka airport above the Arctic Circle showed that no force of nature can thwart human determination.
When their 30-plus-ton Tupolev plane, scheduled to leave for the region’s capital Krasnoyarsk, froze to the ground, many among the 74 passengers, including many oil workers traveling home, used their bare (well, hopefully gloved) hands to push it back, holding onto its wings. All in the balmy -61 F weather.
The Independent reports that a transport official in West Siberia said that the braking system got jammed because of the cold, and the tug-truck failed to dislodge the plane, “so friendly passengers agreed to help and they soon safely left for home.”
In a video posted online, a Russian website reported, a passenger is heard saying that “several things make a real man’s life worth living: Writing a book, planting a tree, or at least bracing one’s muscles to help an immobilized passenger plane take to the skies.” Another put it in less grandiose terms: “We just want to get back home.”
Bleona Qereti is not shy! We know this because she stepped out in an unbelievable sheer gown at this year’s American Music Awards.
The 35-year-old star of the reality TV programme, Euros of Hollywood, definitely wins the award for the most outrageous look of the night.
Bleona is apparently known as the “Madonna of Albania”, but we’re not sure Madge would approve.
One false move and Bleona’s modesty, what little remained, would be gone!
The cheeky star, who wore the daring dress with a pair of sky-high stilettos, even wore a tiny thong underneath.
It’s not the best red carpet look we’ve seen.
There’s no harm in looking, right? In this case, there may be harm in NOT looking.
In this nifty little video, a woman dons some workout clothes and walks around the streets of New York. But her pants are equipped with a hidden camera thats meant to catch passersby — both men and women — gawking at her posterior.
The lighthearted video captures dozens of people on the street looking in the direction of the camera. It’s hard to tell if they’re actually honed in on the model’s butt, or if they just happen to be looking in her direction.
But the butt of the joke is actually that this is a PSA for Movemeber, which promotes men’s health awareness. The video ends with a call out for “gentlemen” to “check out [their] own butt” — i.e., have their prostate checked.
In the mid-Atlantic region of this great country, there’s a popular food called “scrapple.”
It’s basically leftover pork bits mixed with cornmeal and spices and fried up in a pan, and if that strikes you as good eatin’, the master brewers at Dogfish Head have just the thing to wash it down.
It’s called Beer for Breakfast, and it’ll be on tap for two magnificent hours, from 5 to 7 p.m., on Dec. 5 at the Dogfish Head Brewings & Eats in Rehoboth Beach, Del. This limited-edition brew is made from 25 pounds of actual super-lean scrapple—Rapa Scrapple’s famous recipe, to be exact—and that’s not all. It also contains applewood-smoked barley from Delaware and maple syrup extracted from trees at the Northfield Mount Hermon School in Western Mass.
Why Northfield? That’s where Dogfish Head founder Sam Calagione met his wife. The sweetness doesn’t stop there. The beer is also flavored by coffee from the Bean Factory in St. Paul, Minnesota, and that’s a nod to the Replacements, one of Calagione’s favorite bands. Beer for Breakfast is actually named for one of their songs, and profits from the tasting benefit Songs for Slim, a charity raising money for former ‘Mats guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke two years ago.
“I thought it would be a great time to flex our creative muscles and try to brew a beer that has the most diverse group of ingredients referencing the meal and its name,” said Calagione, who got into the breakfast-themed-beer thing years ago, launching Chicory Stout as one of Dogfish’s first brews. “It’s sort of an ‘everything-but-the-breakfast-nook’ stout.”
