There’s nothing quite as sexy as a guy who knows what’s important in life; people not things. He’s not homeless, he’s a gainfully employed dude famous for his devout minimalism. Andrew Hyde a technology consultant, started his quest to simplify his life by challenging himself  to make due with only 100 possessions (socks and underwear not included). It felt so good, that he decided to eliminate even more of his belongings until he he owned only 15 items.  Some of Andrew’s essentials include a backpack (which fits all of his things), running shoes, toiletry kit, a MacBook Air and an iPhone.  Impressive, Andrew! I wonder he’s willing to make room for one more thing; an available women who hates getting rid of stuff and is admittedly a bit of a toiletry hoarder. I could probably learn a lot from this guy. That, and Andrew’s 15 items would fit so effortlessly into a small corner of my apartment. No giving up any closet space!  [Oddity Central]

“Blue Ivy” Strain Marijuana Sprouting Up In LA Weed Shops

Jay-Z & Beyonce

We knew Beyonce and Jay-Z’s baby Blue Ivy was going to be influential, but this just isn’t what we expected.

The week-old child is already racing up the Billboard charts with her cries audible on her dad’s song “Glory,” and she already has her own strain of marijuana named after her, reports TMZ.

According to the website, several weed dispensaries in Los Angeles are selling a new strain of pot called “OG Blue Ivy.” Of course, Beyonce and Jay-Z didn’t sign off on the new strain, but they don’t have a trademark on their daughter’s name and so far the stores haven’t received any sort of legal notice from the couple.

World Toilet-Paper Folding Record Broken By High School Students!

This is no Halloween prank: Massachusetts teens have officially broken the world toilet-paper-folding record. Students from the St. Mark’s School in Southborough completed 13 folds and 8,192 layers, beating a previous high school student’s record of 12 folds in 2002. The class was guided by their mathematics teacher James Tanton, who has waited seven years for a class to finally break the record.

The question is, how did they do it? According to BostInno.com, the students taped 64 layers of toilet paper the into a a sixth fold. They then mimicked those layers and folded the stack. The end result was 8,192 layers thick, 1.5 meters wide and 76 centimeters high. Read more…

 

World’s Smallest Working Dog, Lucy The Yorkshire Terrier, Sets Guinness World Record

A mini Yorkshire terrier from New Jersey is now the holder of a very big world record: world’s smallest working dog.

Lucy, who weighs just 2 1/2 pounds, was named the world’s smallest working dog last week by Guinness World Records. In the process, she doggedly beat out the previous record holder: Momo, an eight-year-old chihuahua from Japan that works as a police search-and-rescue dog.

Man Suing To Have Wedding Pics Redone Even Though Wife Divorced Him

It may come across as an extreme case of nuptial nostalgia: A now-divorced man saying a photography studio should pay to recreate his wedding to make up for what he considers flawed pictures and video.

But after being branded a “groomzilla,” Todd Remis said Tuesday his now-notorious lawsuit is about holding a business to a pledge, not holding onto a broken marriage.

“It was their failure to deliver after a promise and a handshake” agreement to retouch the photos, Remis said in a statement provided to The Associated Press. “How could a business treat a customer this way?” Read more…

See How Your French Fries Are Aging

In a completely unofficial and gross experiment, one brave (or bored?) Redditor put McDonald’s and KFC fries in airtight jars for three years just to see how they would age. Well, no doubt Mickey D’s fries have better genes. Or do they? The French fry researcher points out that “this test is meaningless [because] too many variables are unknown to make any sort of call.” Fry guy goes on to say, “If anything, I’d be more afraid of the KFC fries because this indicates they might have been contaminated with bacteria or mold or were improperly cooked.” But wait, does the lack of mold fur on the Mickey D’s batch mean that there was some kind of crazy synthetic chemical that they’re treated with? Never mind. I don’t want to know. It doesn’t matter. I’m never eating fast food French fries again. [The Daily What]

Penis Tattoo Leaves Man With Permanent Boner

Things that we suspected might be a bad idea: getting your penis tattooed. A 21-year-old Iranian man was left with a permanent semi-boner after getting the phrase “good luck on your journeys” along with his girlfriend’s initials inked on his peen in Persian. After several days of post-tat healing, his pain began to subside, but his woody didn’t. According the to the Journal of Sexual Medicine, the tattoo artist “punctured too-deep holes that damaged vessels in his penis” causing blood pooling that resulted in the perma-rection. Since the guy is still able to achieve full erections and have sex, he’s more or less okay with his always hard d**k. Meanwhile, doctors are taking this opportunity to remind us that penile tattooing is dumb. But we already suspected as much. Maybe he should get the tattoo changed to read, “Good luck with your permanent erection.” [MSNBC]

Watch Video

If there is one useless fact to know about me, it’s that I am a connoisseur of panda videos on YouTube. I hope to turn it into a moneymaking venture some day. Don’t ask me how — I haven’t thought that far ahead. This clip is maybe a 5 out of 10 on the cuteness scale. If you want a 9 out of 10, watch this one. Don’t ask me how I devised that ranking system, either. I just know. [BuzzFeed]

Place I Want To Go: Restaurant That Serves Food In Toilet Bowls

The world is such a wonderful place. It is a place where a restaurant exists called S**thouse, which serves food in mini-toilets and bedpans. The Beijing eatery was started by Feng Lu who says she had the idea to open the joint after discussing the biggest dumps she’d ever dined in with her friends. The conversation prompted her to open “one big toilet.” I’m not sure I understand the logic, but I don’t care. The S**thouse concept makes me extremely happy. And it’s making lots of others happy too. It’s such a huge success that there may be a chain of S**thouses coming soon. Yay! Please come to New York. I seriously can’t wait to eat noodles out of a toilet. [Metro]
