“As a consequence of shoppers searching for ‘bathroom sweets’ we decided to answer their search, literally,” Bathrooms.com CEO Ian Monk said in a press release. “Our very own exclusive chocolate bathroom suite, based on our Maderno range, was initially a bit of fun, but once we realized it was possible to actually make we knew we decided to buy Bathroomsweets.com and list the product.”
Who’d turn down a guy like this?
McDaniel had been visiting Sagebrush Sam’s in Butte, Montana, where police say he gave a woman $350 for a private dance. The dance ended abruptly when McDaniel allegedly became “sexually aggressive” towards the dancer, law enforcement told The Montana Standard.
Unhappy that his advances were denied, the man allegedly called 911 to inform authorities that the woman would not have sex with him.
Authorities responded by charging McDaniel with soliciting prostitution, accordion to KTVQ.
Butte-Silver Bow Undersheriff George Skuletich told The Montana Standard that McDaniel felt he was “ripped off” and “assumed he paid the $350 for sexual acts that didn’t occur.”
In the wake of engineers announcing that they have built an army of 1,000 small robots that can come into formation on command, a report is now saying that by 2025 “robotic sex partners will become commonplace.” Yes, you heard right. Sex robots.
Not only that, but these robots will be stealing work from both blue and white-collar professionals.
Fifty-percent of experts who were polled said it was inevitable that these man-made machines would one day take over the world. In the future, it looks like they’ll be taking more jobs from humans than they create.
The report, called “AI, Robotics, and the Future of Jobs,” pretty much explained what some experts thought would happen if AI and robot advancements continued on the creepily steady path that they seem to be on. This includes the reality that, someday soon, artificiality will get bored of their repetitive tasks and finally decide to take over “wide segments of daily life.”
GigaOM Research’s Stowe Boyd agrees that people won’t like it very much, but contends that artificial sex workers will be dealt with much like how “critics today bemoan selfies as an indicator of all that’s wrong with the world.”
From the production line to your bedroom. These sexbots will look, feel and move similar to an actual human being, and will probably be decent enough to satisfy the sexual desires of most people.
Who knows what would happen if lovotics — the study of human-bot relationships — progresses so much that people actually fall in love with their sexbot? There’s most likely going to be some extensive ramifications.
When futurologist Ian Yeoman spoke at Australia’s Tourism Futures conference, he forecasted that there would soon be fake resorts with robot staff, including robot prostitutes.
Here’s what Yeoman had to say:
Robotics will become important, because you’re going to have labour shortages in the future. Even robot prostitutes’ that would not pass on diseases such as HIV could make an appearance.
We’d like to think that things would never get as bad as they did in I, Robot or A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Having a real-life sci-fi thriller on my hands is not something I’d like to experience in my lifetime, or being forced to have sex with a robot.
The decadent dog, created by Vancouver-based restaurant Dougie Dog, comes soaked in the $2,000 vintage Cognac, fried in truffle oil and topped with Kobe beef, fresh lobster and the restaurant’s signature picante sauce.
The foot-long Bratwurst carries a hefty price tag of $100, with more than 1,000 people so far coughing up the cash to sample the restaurant’s “Dragon Dog”, since it first launched in 2012.
Although anyone who wants a taste must order 12 hours in advance.
Speaking to New York Daily News, Dougie Luv, President of Dougie Dogs, said: “When I was designing this hot dog I wanted to come up with something super tasty but also high-end.
“But something that still stays true to the traditional identity of the hot dog – that any hot dog lover would enjoy. Just ask the 1090 people who have dared to spend $100 – they have all absolutely loved it.”
The creation was officially inducted into the Guinness World Records this week as the world’s most expensive hot dog.
A man who rear-ended a Spokane police detective in downtown Spokane Tuesday afternoon was arrested after police discovered he was wanted on two warrants.
The detective, who is not being identified, was stopped in traffic heading west on Second Avenue at Jefferson Street when he was hit from behind just before 12:30 p.m. “He was definitely not at fault,” said police spokeswoman Monique Cotton. “Even though he was injured, he got out and assisted at the scene.”
The driver who hit him has been identified as Roman I. Ryakhovskaya, 24. He was wanted on warrants for driving under the influence and domestic violence assault. He has been cited for driving with a suspended license and may also be cited for following too close, Cotton said.
The detective was treated at a local hospital for minor injuries, Cotton said. The detective has been with the department for many years and has previously been involved in two car crashes while on duty. In both cases he was hit by a drunk driver and was not at fault, Cotton said.
An Albuquerque man was being held in the Bernalillo County Jail Tuesday after police said he drove a stolen electric shopping cart to meet with this probation officer.
The probation officer asked Johnson where he got the cart, to which Johnson said he “took it from the Walmart on San Mateo and Zuni,” the documents say.
Johnson was arrested and charged with larceny and receiving stolen property. He violated his probation when he was arrested and is being held on a $500 bond.
Albuquerque police made the arrest and said Tuesday that the cart could have been put to better use.
“The cart was worth over $1,800, and certainly it could have been used by those who needed it more than this man,” APD spokesman Tanner Tixier said.
The man, who was only named Mr Huang, owned a liquor factory in the province of Hubei. He is suspected of adding Sildenafil, a chemical compound used for the treatment of erectile dysfunction, to alcoholic drinks marketed as “nutritional” and “healthy” for 30 yuan or $5 per bottle, according to People Daily.
Huang paid 2,400 yuan (390 U.S. dollars) for the sildenafil powder. He added 130milligrams of sildenafil per 100 milliliters of liquor, producing 750 liters of the spirits intotal, according to the police.
Adding sildenafil to liquor is illegal and is likely to have strong side effects on patients withcardiovascular problems.
Facing stiff competition in the alcohol market, Huang said his motivation was to ‘increase alcohol sales and make money fast’, according to CNA.
He also gave 810 bottles to his friends and reportedly kept 30 bottles for his personal use. Chinese authorities are now trying to locate the unconsumed bottles of Huang’s liquor, which contained 130 milligrams of Sildenafil per 100 milliliters of liquor according to police.
The Jianshi County authorities are trying to retrieve the liquor from the market.
