As you may or may not know, Europeans are super into trains. It’s like an entire continent of three-year-old boys. It makes sense; their interstates are non-existent, the flights would last nine minutes and their history with dirigibles is decidedly mixed. SOOOO, you’d think a high-traffic area like a train station would be a great place for machine which vends sex toys. According to The Mirror, residents of Casarsa (a place in Italy) are going to need more convincing. Read more on Your Tango…

Norwegian photographer Torgeir Berge was stunned when his dog Tinni met a wild fox in the woods, and instead of fighting with it or chasing it away, seemed to enjoy its company. The fox, who was eventually named Sniffer, also showed an immediate affection for Tinni. The two animals quickly became best friends, and a real-life version of “The Fox and the Hound” was born.

In case your underwear wasn’t imposing enough already, Microsoft is now working on a “smart bra” that can monitor your heart and skin to prevent overeating. Prototypes of the bras are embedded with sensors that seek out changes in the body’s stress levels and inform the bra’s wearer (How does it inform them exactly? Flashing lights? A robot voice telling them to put that donut down?). Since high stress can trigger emotional eating, its goal is to get women to stop and think before chowing.
According to a paper explaining the results of a project in which four women wore the prototype bras, the stress-level warnings “served as a health intervention to encourage the person to be more active or consume less food.” Slightly creepy, but okay. Keep reading »

During all the years I studied Italian, I never learned much of the important stuff I needed in Italy, like “Only with a condom on!” and “Get your hand out of my purse, you fucking pickpocket scum.” Too bad comedian Veronika Poli wasn’t around. Here are all of the hand gestures you need to know to tell someone to fuck off or shut up, or draw more attention your boobs. The only other thing you need to know is to bring your own condoms and just shake it in their face. [Laughing Squid]
I’m a big believer in listening to gut feelings. Trust your gut, and you can never go wrong – and if things do go wrong, you’re way less likely to have regrets, because you followed your instincts. According to a recent study published in Science, I’m not the only one who feels this way. As it turns out, gut feelings can indicate the future success of a marriage. The study found that no matter what positive exclamations they share in public, newlyweds’ gut instincts about their new spouses are a big part of what determines whether they’ll be satisfied in their marriage.

When I was a preteen, I made a purse out of an old pair of jeans and thought I was just too cool. Artist Ian Berry took things a big step further, using denim as a medium to make beautiful “paintings.” In a report by the BBC, Berry shows off his art. The designs look almost as if they’re paintings, but are made solely of jeans. Berry has exhibited his work worldwide, and was even commissioned by Giorgio Armani. Mind. Blown. [BBC]
