Rolling Stone Mouth-Shaped Urinals Called Sexist

Once upon a time the Rolling Stones lamented that they couldn’t get no satisfaction. Today, the Rolling Stones Fan Museum in Germany has similar woes, since it’s under fire from feminists who have taken issue with the museum’s urinals.

The iconic urinals are in the shapes of a big, juicy pair of red lips — the Rolling Stones logo. The logo was originally modelled off Mick Jagger’s iconic pout, created in 1971 by art designer John Pasche. Yet the urinals remove the tongue and brighten the original icon, making the already androgynous Jagger mouth appeal quite womanly. And, needless to say, feminists are pissed.

Roda Armbruster called the urinals ”discrimination against women,” and her sentiments are shared by a growing number of people in Germany and internationally. Read more…

If you’ve ever lost a cellphone to a toilet bowl, rainstorm, or a really important call in the shower, a new product might be able to help you out: Liquipel is a waterproof protective coating 1000 times thinner than a human hair. Customers get their phones treated as a preventive measure, and then, after that inevitable dip in the toilet, send them in to the Liquipel headquarters, where a special machine activates a plasma process and voila, the phone is dry and good as new. The process costs $59, which isn’t exactly cheap. Nevertheless, it’s catching on: the company says they’re currently processing 1,000 soggy phones every hour. [Reuters]

Nepali Ritual “Weds” Girls To God

Nine-year-old Bhintuna sat smiling in jewelry and a red and gold brocade bridal dress as she held a tray of offerings, waiting for her turn to take part in the ritual that would wed her to a god.

The schoolgirl is just one of hundreds of Nepali girls set to take part in the rite that weds them to the god Vishnu over the coming month, a symbolic time of weddings according to tradition in this deeply religious, majority Hindu nation. Read more…

Look at what we got here. This fine gentleman, 50-year-old Barry Chappell, has been collecting more than 95,000 pieces of already been chewed Nicorette gum for the last six years and fashioning them into one giant gumball. He keeps this 175 pound nicotine blob in his sauna, where the gum stays moist and supple for molding. He acknowledges that his gumball has become a bit of an obsession. I almost want to encourage Barry to take up smoking again. I believe TLC’s “My Strange Addiction” might have missed a compelling cast member. [Oddity Central]

Seven-year-old Rita Lawlor knew what to do when she found her mother unconscious — slap her with a leftover piece of pizza. When the slice didn’t revive her mother, Rita decided to call 911. Her mother is doing well and little Rita was saluted for her heroism by the Sarasota County Fire Department this past week. I think she was onto something with this pizza slapping technique. Pizza could save lives. [The Daily What]

Things that happen when you refuse to eat anything but chicken nuggets for 15 years (like seriously, nothing else): You collapse from anemia. You have swollen veins in your tongue. Shortness of breath. Doctors tell you might die if you don’t stop. You have a house full of Happy Meal toys.

After a being rushed to the hospital struggling to breathe, 17-year-old chicken nugget addict Stacey Irvine admitted, “I’m starting to realize this is really bad for me.” Well, we’re glad she finally realized it. Time to force feed the girl some kale. [The Sun UK]
