Products That Promise Beach Hair In A Bottle

Uh, we don’t know what’s going on in your neck of the woods, but here in NYC the weather gods have decided to piss on our summer fun. Literally. It’s like living in London, except without all the fun double-decker buses and tea times. We’re not getting to the beach anytime soon and we’d cry ourselves a river over it were it not for these products that at least let us pretend that we’ve been happily bopping around the beach. Put the wavy surfer-girl look back into your locks with these aids. Apply to damp hair, scrunch with your fingers, and allow your hair to dry naturally. If you’re in a hurry, use a blow dryer with a diffuser, blowing hot air up into your locks.

  2. Kusco-Murphy Beach Hair gained fame for its use on Sports Illustrated swimsuit models. Bamboo and other natural ingredients work to produce volume, texture, and strength. [$35, Bigelowchemists.com]
  3. John Frieda’s Beach Blonde Ocean Waves spray is tough to find, which is a shame, because it’s one of the best products out there. The super strong texturizer uses sea water and oil for a feel that’s pretty darn close to the real thing. [$69, Stuff4beauty.com]

(Sperm) Size Matters

Size may not matter in the human world, but when it comes to other animals and insects, giant sperm is the way to go, especially if the creature has a tiny body. A mussel-like animal that lived 100 million years ago produced sperm that was longer than its body. Even today, there are animals making large sperm. A fruit fly can produce a 2.5-inch coil of sperm, even though its body is only a few milliliters. To equal the same sperm to body ratio, a human would have to produce sperm 40 meters long. Ostracodes, an extinct ancient class of arthropods, also produced long sperm. With these findings scientists have concluded that giant sperm production is a proven, evolutionary tactic for successful reproduction. Creatures can increase the chance of fertilization with a larger sperm cell. [Reuters] Keep reading »

The big bad Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) has once again committed an act of evil. This time, the victim is a mother of four from Minnesota who illegally shared 24 songs on the site Kazaa.com. (I know, right? Send that woman to jail, stat.)

What Levi Johnston Should Really Do With His Life

Levi Johnston, Bristol Palin’s baby daddy, is leaving Alaska to become the family breadwinner. Well, at least, the teen father is using the excuse that he needs money to support his son, Tripp, as his reason for trying to extend his 15 minutes of fame by becoming an actor. He’s got an agent and is booking all sorts of exciting things, like a reality show and cameos in sitcoms. [MSNBC]

Since Johnston is a high school drop out, and he is kinda hot, this isn’t the worst idea ever. And we’d be the first to watch his reality show. But here are some other income generators he might want to consider: Keep reading »
