iPhone app for perverts who like to look up women’s skirts

If you’re feeling the itch to sneak a peek at a cute Japanese lady’s panties, BottleCube’s iPhone app Puff! is the legal way to do it. The harder you rub your screen and blow on the mic, the higher her skirt will fly. The more her skirt is raised, the louder her squeal. There are different scenarios in case you want to change things up a little–a park, the office and a bar. Save yourself a sexual harassment suit, and get yours at the iTunes store today!

Another solution to global warming: pee before flying

Just when you thought airline regulations couldn’t get any more cumbersome, Japanese airline All Nippon Airways (ANA) recently started a new policy encouraging passengersallnippon_1493865c to empty their bladders before boarding the aircraft.  The rationale behind this is that empty bladders means lighter passengers, resulting in a lighter aircraft and lower fuel use.

So don’t be alarmed the next time you fly ANA and a crew member reminds you at the gate to use the bathroom before boarding.  Do your part in saving the environment–empty your bladder!

Chinese bankers count cash at superhuman speed

You know those machines at the bank that can count a huge stack of bills in mere seconds?  Well, check out China’s human version.  Featured on CCTV, these incredible individuals are “both fast and accurate” in their ability to count money, newspapers, and stamp envelopes at superhuman speed.  Crazy!

It’s a small world after all

What does a community of dwarves in China do to escape discrimination?  Turn themselves into a tourist attraction!  Whether or not the idea settles well with you, this community from thedwarf_1491953c mountain commune in Kunming, China decided to capitalize on their height instead of letting it be a barrier to social acceptance and employment.  Pay an entrance fee and you will get a chance watch these people dress up like fairy tale characters to entertain you.  Would you pay for this tourist attraction?

Fob researchers put panda poop to good use

Kudos to three fobby scientists from Kitasato University for discovering that giant panda poop bacteria can reduce more than 90 percent of kitchen waste. The bacteria extract converts the refuse into water and carbon dioxide. Fumiaki Taguchi, Song Guofu, and Zhang Guanglei were presented with an Ig Nobel prize (parody of the Nobel prize) this year for their efforts.

At the Ig Nobel ceremony, which was held in Harvard, 72-year-old Taguchi said he initially guessed that panda poop might have a special kind of bacteria due to the mammals’ ingestion of large volumes of bamboo. Isn’t poop great? It serves all kinds of purposes, from burgers to keeping our environment green!

Juicy, meatier maids to serve your flubber fetish

It’s quite refreshing to see a maid cafe with chunkier servers, especially in Japan, a country swamped with stick-thin Japanese women. I remember asking a salesgirl how she managed to stay so thin, and she replied nonchalantly, “I don’t eat.” Right. Still, despite the overwhelming preference for skinny gals, there are those that want more junk in the trunk. Enter the Tokyo-based Pomeranian Maid Cafe, fully equipped with a minimum weight requirement for its wait staff. Ichigo, the woman and brains behind this cafe, used to work at a regular maid cafe and felt inferior because of her weight. She then decided to turn the heft to her advantage, and thus Pomeranian was born. I’m just a little disturbed that they used my dog Peanut’s breed as the name of the cafe.

Ooey gooey poop burger

Japan is way ahead of its peers in edible poop research. In 1993, they found a way to turn poop into meat substitute, thanks to scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda from the Environmental Assessment Center in Okayama.

Ikeda created and named the “shit burger” which is made out of soy, protein extracted from poop, and steak sauce essence. The substitute costs 10 to 20 times than real meat because of the amount of money that went into the research.
