Sniff, Sniff — That’s Dating Compatibility You Smell

Basisnote and Scientific Match are developing technology that will hook people up based on their immune systems and odor. Studies have shown how a person smells is based in their immune system, and people are attracted to the odor of those who have different histocompatibility genes, the genetic components of the human immune system, than their own. Dating someone with a different immune system than yours is beneficial in the long run if the two of you decide to procreate. But in the short term this seems like another dating site gimmick. Both of these sites purport to let nature take its course by letting people’s noses make the decision for them, but they have a rather unnatural hand in getting the couple together because they match men and women to people who have opposite immune systems.

We don’t plan on joining either of these sites because they take the fun out of dating, but we might try the following sites (some real, some imagined) instead. Keep reading »

Um, No: The Cap-Sac

This is the age of multitasking, so it shouldn’t be a surprise that fashion is following suit. Voilà: the Cap-Sac, a hat-cum-fannypack that protects you from the sun and stores your keys and wallet at the same time. Amazing! The nylon 80s-vibe chapeaus come in funky fresh colors like turquoise, pink, electric-yellow and cool zipper detail. Go full-on retro by pairing them with hammer pants, or rock it hipster-style with Wayfarers and skinny jeans. [$12.99, Cap-Sac.com] Keep reading »

Band Of Brothers: Soldiers In Iraq Get N’Sync

What’s better than four shirtless soldiers who can dance? Finding a man who loves N’Sync as much as we did — OK, do. This routine to “Bye, Bye, Bye,” straight from the front lines in Iraq, is jam packed with smooth moves from a bunch of built bros. Mmm, men in the military. Lance Bass would agree: It’s a pleasure to see our tax dollars hard at work. [Cougars Wild Kingdom]

Mac Gets A Girlfriend

We had long wondered what kind of girl the personification of a Mac computer would go for — and now we know. A new commercial pits Mac (Justin Long) against PC (John Hodgman) as they try to win a woman’s attention. Since it’s a Mac commercial, Mac wins. Who is this mystery lady? Says she: “I’m a Megan.” Keep reading »

    The Greek Ruins Are Getting Even More Ruined By Stilettos

    Sexy stilettos may damage your feet, but they’re also wrecking the ancient marble floors of ancient Greek sites. Apparently, the temples are showing signs of aging worse than Pamela Anderson. “These monuments have a skin that suffers and people must realize that,” Eleni Korka, the director of Greek Prehistoric and Classical Antiquities, warned. The Culture Ministry is asking women to lay off the pumps when visiting the sites this summer. A new law prohibiting drinking, eating, and strutting in spiked heels at the national treasures will go into effect January 2010. So, Victoria Beckham and other slaves to fashion, you best hit the sites before your shoes stop you from getting a little cultcha. [Breibart] Keep reading »

    Ask The Astrosexologist: Am I Wasting My Time On This Pisces Guy?

    “I’m a Scorpio (11/9/84 at 3:08pm) and the guy in question is a Pisces (3/15/84 at 4:26pm). I met him three years ago, and we dated for nine months. We ended up breaking up because he wasn’t able to juggle school, work, friendships and a girlfriend. Since then we have stayed really good friends. Last summer, after about 19 months, we started hooking up again, no strings attached. The problem is, I have been in love with him since the beginning. We both admit there is some strong connection between us, but I’m confused. He stated once before that he was afraid to get back with me because he didn’t want it to end badly and ruin our friendship. We often get into fights that are beyond heated and passionate, only to be fine with each other a few hours later, even if one of us has said we are walking away forever. Things have recently become more confusing since he started hooking up with a much older Gemini woman. Are we a match that will eventually work out when he gets over himself or am I wasting my breath?” – Optimistic Scorpio Keep reading »
