New Fetish: The 'Human Barbie Doll' Look

Depicted above is one of the many who have took part in this new crazed fetish. Valeria Lukyanova, also known as the "Human Barbie," went viral earlier this year after the images of this attractive 21-year-old blonde model entered the online kingdom. Many folks are wondering if she got plastic surgery or if most of these online photos are merely Photoshop, etc. If in doubt, go online and perform an image search for this type of stuff... Anyway, some people even say she isn't real, for example. Well, there is no doubt that she is a living, breathing human being. However, she does claim that she is all natural and possesses this type of Barbie Doll look by using an awesome make-up job and is more focused on her optimistic disposition and spiritual connection, going by what I've read.

This individual shown above is not the only one I have seen the last few years, that has really got into this new type of fetish. There was some guy on TV a while back, that was striving to look just like the Barbie Doll named Ken. Except this guy admitted to going through various types of expensive surgeries and whatnot. Even though I found that particular case to be totally ridiculous and a waste of money, it didn't cost me anything so whatever floats your boat, dude. Other popular models have somewhat tried to mock these childish figurines, but more times than not, the plastic surgery goes wrong somewhere down the line after trying to achieve this human Barbie Doll look. I must give Valerie some credit, though, as she did really well on this cosmetic aspect. Now, whether her boobs are real or if she had additional plastic surgery, is another story. Personally, I prefer the more all-terrain, big booty, sexy-but-tough look, sort of like the girls you often see in rap videos while "shaking what their momma gave 'em," as they say; ha!

Seed Tape for Small Seeds

I was just looking at this semi-interesting gardening aid today, known as seed tape, and was thinking how it could be fairly useful for those pesky small seeds that almost seem invisible once they hit the dirt. You know, the really tiny seeds like beets, radishes, carrots, lettuce, spinach, turnips, etc. Most of the stuff I plant usually has medium to large seeds, but the seed tape could come in handy for the micro seeds, I suppose.

This is an extremely simple concept with environmentally friendly features. The paper and adhesive from this tape is biodegradable and compostable. It's an easy way to sow small seeds, no doubt. This gardening tape is pre-glued for your convenience. The printed increments on the tape makes the proper spacing of your seeds a cinch. You just dig out your spot/row, put the seeds on the biodegradable tape, place it in the trench/furrow and cover it up with the dirt and add some water.

Will I try this amazingly simple product this year? No, probably not. LOL! I'd rather spend my extra money on more plants and fertilizer, additional soil, and so on. However, I just thought I'd mention this in case some of y'all sow a lot of tiny seeds and have trouble getting your garden rows straight. Personally, I don't care if my plants come up in a zig-zag fashion, just as long as they come up, thrive, and produce; cheers!

Long-Distance Wi-Fi Antenna

Yeah, when I say long distance, I mean like half a mile away! If this product does what it says it can, there will be a lot of people getting free Internet service with their laptops and computers. A while back, I wrote a post that was entitled "What can disrupt your Wi-Fi Network Adapter?" on another website.

Anyway, a lot of people seemed to think that other folks in the neighborhood were trying to tap off of my Internet connection, but since it was a secure connection between the house computers, I'm assuming that wasn't the case. It works better now, for whatever reason, and I think my network adapter may be the one to blame. You can flip the thing around or shake it some times, and it will start working fine for days. Then, you can barely bump it and the damn thing will go out.

Regardless of that other, I'm glad I have a secure connection or else everybody and their grandmother would be trying to tap off of me along with anybody else that pays for their Internet in this area that has unsecured home networks. If more and more people start buying these long-distance Wi-Fi antennas, like the one shown above, the air waves will be even busier than they already were (as if that really matters). However, this would be a good option for somebody that lives close to a hotspot in town that provides a public connection and whatnot. Now, if you are living way out in the sticks, this product won't serve any useful purpose.

The long-distance Wi-Fi antenna I looked at today, comes with a 25 foot USB cable and it's actually an indoor and outdoor antenna, which of course would mean that it is also water-resistant. The price range I've seen thus far is from 60 dollars all the way down to 40 bucks. Well, I thought I'd share this today since it seemed like a pretty good deal . . . that is, if it can really pick up strong signals from half a mile away; cheers!

Bionic Ear - Electronic Listening (Spy) Device


Now here is a childish spy gadget that many nosy adults would probably enjoy; ha! It is called the "Bionic Ear" and it's an electronic listening device that suppose to enhance your spying potential. What I find funny about this little contraption is that it's advertised as a kid's toy, but how many small children do you know of that would think about privately listening to conversations from 300 feet away? I don't know, maybe things are different now, but when I was in Elementary school I had better things to do outside as opposed to pointing some bionic ear at a distant neighbor so I could eavesdrop for my sick-twisted listening pleasure.

Anyway, the bionic ear consists of an extremely sensitive microphone that claims to be able to pick up soft whispers from a football field away! You just look through the targeting scope thingy and squeeze the trigger to amplify your desired target's sounds/chatter/conversation. Hell, if you combine this particular electronic device with the USB Hidden Spy Voice Recorder that I posted about earlier, you should be all set. LOL!

Book full of Crazy Inventions that Never Hit the Market

Now here is a fun book that is bound to be highly entertaining to the masses. It is called "The Klutz Book of Inventions," and it features over 160 crazy ideas for inventions that never hit the market. Some of these ideas are so insane, they might actually work in a world that isn't quite so mundane and confined to our common practicalities; ha! This book demonstrates what it looks like when creative geniuses meet insanity and utter lunacy. Hell, the guy pictured on the book looks like he is showing a product that functions as a helmet-based juicer that funnels the end-product directly to your mouth, for example. LOL!

I haven't read this book yet, but just by reading a few of the examples, it makes me curious and somewhat interested. Some of the ones on the book review mentioned a coin-return couch, a flip-up car sign so you'd never lose your car in the parking lot, a type of pants that redirects your farts (WTF?), a tricycle-lawnmower combo, and so much more. It is a hardcover-spiral book with 198 pages of entertaining material. Although none of these products are currently being sold on the market, some of them may trigger a cool idea for a practical invention. Who knows? Either way, I thought I'd share this today in case some of y'all are looking for a different type of medium that is full of crazy ideas that obviously went astray.

USB Hidden Spy Voice Recorder

This is a nifty little device that could have many valuable uses. Whether you are using it to record lectures, random thoughts, etc., or to use as a hidden spy tactic, this USB voice recorder has a very low profile and is extremely easy to use. The one shown here holds up to 8GB of memory, which they claim that it equates to about 150 hours of recordings. It easily plugs into your computer's USB drive (while simultaneously charging it) so you can playback your recordings via .WAV files. I've seen a price range of just under 20 bucks all the way up to nearly 40 dollars, depending on the brand, size of the memory, etc.

The sound quality, going by one of the customer reviews, suppose to be about as good as the ancient portable cassette recorders of the past. Without the bulk of the old-style recorders, one could easily have this in a shirt pocket without anybody knowing about it. Personally, I've never needed a hidden spy voice recorder, but if I did, this is the type I would buy. Even if you dropped it in front of someone, most people wouldn't know what it was because it looks like a typical USB charging device. Anyway, I just thought I'd share this product today, in case any of y'all were needing to go undercover; ha-ha!

Star Trek: The Animated Series - DVDs

I know there are a lot of Trekkers out there, and Star Trek is one of the most popular science fiction shows around. Personally, I always liked the original series the best, but to each their own. The Next Generation seemed pretty good, too, but I only watched the first few seasons of that one and I have no idea about all the new ones out there now.

Anyway, for the ones that liked the original series, a lot of you may not realize that they made an animated series a few years after they quit making the regular episodes. The box says 1973 - 1974. Well, I received mine as a gift several years ago. At first, I was reluctant to watch them right away, because I thought that since they were animated, the quality must have been compensated and that the plots most likely sucked. Well, after watching a few of them, I was surprised. They were pretty good and it is a must-have for any original Star Trek collector.

The DVD set comes with all 22 episodes of the animated adventures of Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek. I don't know how much it costs now, but mainly because I got mine free - since it was a gift; ha! At any sci-fi rate, I just thought I'd share that today; cheers!

Television Series: Planet of the Apes

Some of you may be like "they had a television series?" If so, don't feel bad, as I first became aware of this a couple years ago. In fact, out of the five movies they made (shown in the 2nd image), I only watched the original flick. I have the other 4 movies on DVD, but they are just sitting there collecting dust for some strange reason.

Anyway, they made a Planet of the Apes television series in 1974. The complete TV series contains 14 episodes. Believe it or not, they were actually pretty good! I was surprised, especially after finding out they got cancelled after their first year. I've read and heard before that the reason they didn't make it, was because of two other highly competitive shows on NBC they were airing during that same time frame/television channel, etc. The two shows that supposedly put the Planet of the Apes' TV series out of business was: 1) Sanford and Son 2) Chico and the Man

Well, I just thought I'd share this today in case some of y'all wasn't aware of this particular series. It sort of reminds me of when I did a post about Star Trek: The Animated Series on another website before, since many of y'all were not aware of that one, as well.

Who cares about planets that are hundreds of light years away?

Part 1:
How many times have you heard fantastical headlines about some bizarre alien planet that is "newly discovered" by so-called scientists, only to hear that it probably doesn't have a chance for being habitable and/or that it is hundreds of light years away? Well, here is a recent example...

Headline: 'Godzilla of Earths' Detected Around an Alien Sun

Intro: "Scientists have just discovered the "Godzilla of Earths" — a new type of huge and rocky alien world about 560 light-years from Earth."

They later went on to say that it is most likely impossible for it to harbor life, as if it would make a damn.

Garbage Source = www.nbcnews.com/science/space/godzilla-earths-detected-around-alien-sun-n120441

Verdict: Who cares!?

I mean, seriously, who in the hell cares that a group of people think that they found a giant rocky planet that wasn't gaseous within a 600 light-year radius? I'm not in the least bit a science & discovery hater or anything of the like, but my gawd! I'd rather read the cartoon section as opposed to pondering about the chemical composition of a planet that freakin' far away. As the old adage states: Let's be real!

In the mean time, we should probably ponder over how much money is wasted on studying planets that are hundreds of light years away.

---End of Post "Who cares about planets that are hundreds of light years away?"

The post above reminds me of another older post I wrote a while back.  Since I'm moving my posts around to other websites & blogs, I thought I'd just add it to this one, as well.

Part 2:  Giant Alien Planet Discovered

Great news, folks! Not! Ha-ha! They just found some giant, useless alien planet out in the Cosmos, that will not change one single aspect of your life. The only people this affected, were the ones that thought they had their planetary formation theories correct. First of all, this foreign/alien planet is suppose to be about 11 times bigger than Jupiter. Yeah, that's a big one!

What threw a monkey wrench into the picture, is that it orbits a star that is extremely far away. It is roughly 650 times farther away than the Earth is from its Sun and, to get a better understanding, the orbit of this newly discovered planet is 20 times farther away from its star than Neptune is from the Sun. Wow! No basking in the Sun from that planet! Anyway, going by their current formation "models," a planet of that size shouldn't have formed that far away from its star. Even if the planet was meant to be a star but lacked the mass to ultimately turn into one, it still doesn't add up for these researchers.

A couple quotes from the source page: "Every new directly detected planet pushes our understanding of how and where planets can form. Discoveries like HD 106906 b provide us with a deeper understanding of the diversity of other planetary systems." Read more about this discovery, here: www.nbcnews.com/science/enormous-alien-planet-discovered-most-distant-orbit-ever-seen-2D11703497

My day is much better now, after knowing that several researchers are even more confused than they already were. LOL!

Himalayan Salt Detox Patches Bogus?

There is an obvious market out there that caters to our toxic world, but that doesn't mean that there isn't a lot of bogus products out there. While Himalayan salt products are well known for being a healthy alternative, these particular detox patches that you suppose to slap on your feet seem to be slightly, uh, scam-like. The concept behind this product is that the salt will draw out unwanted toxins through your feet. You suppose to wear these patches when you sleep, for 5 days in a row. They are usually sold as 10 patches (Two 5-day regimens).

By what I could tell, the main proponents of this product are the ones selling it. The other reviews I read, didn't sound so favorable, except for this one person that was amazed at how dirty their patch was after using it. Hmm... I mean seriously, if Himalayan salt is going to be used for your health, wouldn't it be better to just buy the bath salts or simply eat the freakin' salt? A good link that provides a detailed review, can be found here: doesitreallywork.org/himalayan-salt-detox-patches-review/

There are so many ways to assist your body with the detoxification process, albeit your kidneys and liver (if functioning halfway normal) suppose to do most of the work anyway. Simply monitoring what you eat, drink and breathe goes a long way, but who knows, maybe this product actually helps. I just posted this in case somebody knew for sure if this product was bogus or not.
