No date for Valentine’s Day and not afraid to do something desperate to get one? For $300, $700, or $1,200 you can pay for a membership package on PersonalDatingAgent.com to help you find that special someone. And luckily for you, the “initial setup fee” is free until Valentine’s Day! Whoopie!

So, how do you go about deciding which package is right for you? First it’s a question of finances. How much money do you have to spend on an incredible dating service with a plethora of testimonials by young professionals (James, John, Sarah, and Elizabeth) who claim to love the site that “does all of the work for them”? I personally think I’d go with the “executive package.” For only $1,200 I would be guaranteed 4+ dates and services including predate advice, stylist advice, concierge service and a professional photo shoot.

Breaking news:

“Cured salted pork crafted as a nasal tampon and packed within the nasal vaults successfully stopped nasal hemorrhage promptly, effectively … this represents the first description of nasal packing with strips of cured pork for treatment of life-threatening hemorrhage in a patient.” 

What that means exactly:  The life of a Michigan woman, suffering from a hereditary disorder which caused uncontrollable nosebleeds, was spared by stuffing pork up her nose. Next time you get a nosebleed, you know what to do. Put some bacon up in there. [The Guardian]

World’s Longest Hug Record Broken In London

Four couples in London spent more than 24 hours hugging it out last week, effectively — and lovingly — seizing the Guinness World Record for longest marathon hug.

Six couples began hugging early on Jan. 19 at the St. Pancras International train station with one goal: wrap their arms around one another, with only a five-minute break each hour, for exactly 24 hours and 44 minutes to beat the former record, according to the London Media Centre. Read more…

A Scrotum Itch Commercial Worth Watching, Even For The Scrotum-Less

Watch Video

I have no business watching a scrotum itch commercial, much less one in Japanese. But I don’t regret the minutes of my life I’ll never get back after watching this on repeat. There’s itching. There’s singing. There’s dancing (sort of). Why can’t Vagisil commercials be this funny? (I mean, outside of “Saturday Night Live.”) [Copyranter]

10 Terrible Toilet Tales

Madam Leong Mee Yan adds a whole new meaning the saying “s**t or get off the pot.” The 58-year-old spent 902 days sitting on her toilet because she believed there was a force holding her down, which prevented her from standing up and leaving the bathroom. She also imagined stones being hurled and water being sprayed by “people she could not see.” She moved off the pot a total of 18 times in her more than two year stay — only to shower. Her husband brought her all of her meals on the toilet and she even curled up and slept there nightly. With an intervention from her son and the help of medical professionals, she has since been removed from the toilet and is receiving treatment for her delusions. [Digg]

This is a terrible toilet tale if ever I did hear one. I wouldn’t leave the toilet either if I thought I was going to be attacked by toilet gnomes. Click through for some more bathroom horror stories.

Macho Urinal Game Makes A Splash In Japan

Three years ago the “Toylet” was just a pipe-dream for developers at Japanese video game maker Sega, but now the urinal video game has been rolled out at pubs across the nation.

Users target their urine at a sensor inside the toilet which measures volume and speed, with software then matching that to progress in a selection of five video games in a console mounted at the top of the urinal.

“At first, we thought it would really be only young people who would like this kind of game. But … we’re seeing this phenomenon where people are enjoying playing with it, regardless of age,” said Hirotaka Machida, the console’s lead producer. Read more …
