On Thursday, May 7, Breezy went to Instagram and shared a photo of a woman sitting on what appears to be the staircase in his house, with a caption explaining that she broke in and vandalized his property.
“I get home and find this crazy individual in my house. She had broken the hinges off the doors,” he wrote.
“She Found time to cook her several meAls. She Wrote “I love you” on the walls. She threw out my daughters clothing as well as my dogs stuff. Then had all these crazy voodoo things around my crib. goes to show you how crazy people are crazy! And she painted her name on my cars!!!! I love my fans but this is some on some real real crazy sh-t! I pray she will get help.”
What on earth?
Are you a business owner? Do you have a product or service you’re selling, but aren’t sure how to market it? Is your target demographic pervy weirdos?
Tittygram has your number! For a nominal fee, Tittygram allows you to advertise basically anything you want on the breasts of an attractive, busty woman! Once again, the crossroads of porn and the Internet have yielded a major marketing innovation!
The media has been talking about Tittygram a lot since fast food chain Burger King seemingly used the service to advertise its burgers in Russia with the phrase, “I love Burger King!” written across the ample chest of a young woman, which the chain then shared on one of its Russian social media pages, apparently oblivious that advertising on the medium could be construed as at least a little sexist in other countries.
Regardless of backlash, the service seems to be picking up steam, as it’s now available in four languages, including Japanese (which shouldn’t surprise anyone). We’re all well aware that Japan kind of has a love affair with large breasts and saucy advertising, so the service seems almost tailor-made for the Japanese market.
At just 1,200 yen (approx. US&10) for a standard breast advertisement, or 3,500 yen for a super high-fidelity breast ad, Tittygram is affordable enough for both small businesses and individuals to use, which means you can now pay a service to make a woman write the word “Titception” on her breasts for your own personal amusement.
Is Tittygram sexist? Oh, absolutely. The company’s attitude towards women is kind of proudly displayed right there in the name of the service, which opts to use the more demeaning “titty,” when they could have at least settled on the equally-not-very-good pun of “Breastogram.” Even so, Tittygram CEO Vladimir Gritsenko is apparently defending the company from allegations of sexism, saying, “Nobody forces [the women] to do it.”
Stay tuned next week, when I introduce my new advertising platform, “Nutsogram,” where I write whatever message you want in Crayola crayon on my love eggs and post pictures of it on the Internet. Any takers? …No?
A life-like humanoid robot that bears a scary resemblance to former governor of Alaska Sarah Palin has been unveiled at the Global Mobile Internet Conference 2015 in Beijing, China.
YangYang is a robot that resembles a middle-aged Caucasian woman and is able to talk, move its head, shake hands and even hug a human.
The android robot was designed by the Shanghai Shenqing Industry (SSI) working in collaboration with Japanese robotics expert Hiroshi Ishiguro, a professor at Osaka University’s Department of Systems Innovation who has been developing robots for over 20 years.
While she looks like Palin, YangYang is actually modelled on Song Yang, a Chinese researcher working with SSI, and the robot features skin made from a special type of silica gel to replicate the texture of human skin.
“After they made one of me, I got all these really amazing feelings. For instance, because I feel it’s like me, if when she’s performing her movements, expressions are not ideal, if she doesn’t do it well, I’ll feel it’s a real shame,” Song, who went onstage with her robot doppelganger, told Reuters.
Ishiguro recently told IBTimes UK in Singapore that he believes robots will one day replace pop stars and Hollywood actors.
“And how about a fashion model? Or newscasters and receptionists – even famous movie stars. Androids never get old and so you can keep a young identity by creating an android that will last forever.”
The rise of the humanoid robots
Ishiguro is a pioneer in his field and first gained worldwide acclaim in 2010 when he created an android robot version of himself that was able to lecture students at Osaka University.
Then in June 2014, he unveiled Otonaroid and Kodomorid – an adult female android robot and a female child robot – at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (Miraikan) in Tokyo.
His permanent exhibition set the world buzzing and unnerved many as the robots look almost exactly like the humans they were modelled on and are meant to make people re-examine what it means to be human.
There are several other companies in the world who are also working on realistic humanoid robots, such as Toshiba, which has worked with Ishiguro on ChihiraAico, a Japanese woman hostess robot.
Hanson Robotics has also created a humanoid robot head called Han that can detect and understand people’s facial expressions, hold a conversation and respond appropriately with its own expressions, and the US Navy is trialling a robot firefighter that can save lives on its warships.
A semi truck driver’s ill-timed sneeze sent his rig rolling onto its side Monday morning in northwest Indiana.
The truck was pulling a flatbed trailer with a steel coil weighing 45,000 pounds, State Police said.
As the driver entered the ramp, he started to sneeze, which caused the truck to run off the roadway and onto a grassy area where the rig rolled onto its side, State Police said.
Crews later put the semi back on its wheels. No fuel spilled, and no lanes were closed during the response.
“They [potholes] don’t get filled. They’ll be there for months,” says the artist, speaking to Newsbeat anonymously.
“People will drive over the same pothole and forget about it.
“Suddenly you draw something amusing around it, everyone sees it and it either gets reported or fixed.”
He says his drawings have meant the potholes get fixed more quickly, although Bury Council says they already have a plan in place to deal with the issue.
A spokesman for the council has describes his artwork as “obscene” and urges him to stop his painting.
“The actions of this individual are not only stupid but incredibly insulting to local residents,” the Bury Council spokesman says.
“Has this person, for just one second, considered how families with young children must feel when they are confronted with these obscene symbols as they walk to school?”
“The naked body is a thing artists have painted for years. There are sculptures that don’t wear clothes. It’s artistic expressions.
“To be offended by that, you must be very prudish.”
“People are entitled to express their grievances to the council, but offending the public and wasting their council tax is not the way to resolve the situation.
“We understand and accept that residents are unhappy with the number of potholes in the borough, and we have a programme of scheduled works to fix them. We have also invested substantially in new machinery which is enabling us to carry out repairs more rapidly.
“Painting obscenities around potholes will not get them repaired any quicker, but simply waste valuable time and resources.
“We urge the perpetrator to stop defacing the roads immediately, and ask anyone who sees this sort of criminal damage being carried out to report it to the police and the council.”
The artist says he has considered the legal implications of his drawings and says he makes them with paint used by professionals when they are temporarily marking the road.
“It does eventually wash off. It’s not graffiti spray paint.
“It’s gone within a week or two. It’s a step up from chalk.”
