The Original Nasal Passage Cleaner

Laugh if you must, but I am now a believer.
(I actually got a plastic one on eBay, I don't know how the eff these people are doing this outside of the shower)

My friend and I were wondering if there are other products out there that we originally mocked that are actually useful, like Bowflex or Ms. Cleo.

Tarsiers and Filipinos: Who could ask for more?

[I've gotten the feedback that the Tarsiers were boring, so I thought I would add more to the post]

Tarsier Tales: The Iban people of Borneo believe the tarsier's head could come off. Locals also believe it if they said the tarsier's name out loud, they would be haunted by ghosts.

When caged, some tarsiers have been known to injure and even kill themselves because of the stress.

Don't anger the Tarsier:

Anal bum cover is worth a thousand words

There are certainly many album cover websites out there to explore. I recommend you start with the Museum of bad album covers 'cause at least it has categorization.

There really are no words to describe this. An oldie, but a goodie.

Images of Japanese Vending Machines

Vending Machines are so abundant in Japan, I believe, because there's a considerable amount of foot traffic to/from train stations and there's basically no vandalism.

Tyra goes ape shit

For whatever reason, there's a lot of black reality show going around today.

Flavor of Love.

Just watch.

Remember that classic sketch where Eddie Murphy puts on a bunch of makeup to become 'white'? Well... FX has a new reality show called Black. White. which has one black family and one white family switchin' it up.

Could be interesting.
