Thanks to reader Brendan M. of Santa Monica for bringing this to my attention. The NY Daily News’ headline to this article, “Patient burned by mid-surgery explosion when laser ignites fart.” I can’t decide if this is a nominee for RAD or a nominee for Bad. “Laser ignites fart” is totally rad. It’s literally the funniest thing I’ve heard this week. But also, if it was your ass from which said laser ignites fart, that would be extremely bad. Especially if you have a hairy asshole.

I can only imagine the doctor having to explain to the patient who went in for surgery on a different part of their body that, sorry, but we had a little laser ignites fart incident. But also I remember one time as a kid hearing that you could light your farts on fire because they’re mostly methane, so one night when I was staying at a friends house, we tried it. It worked, kinda but it also hurt. That’s the kind of shit 14 year-old kids do, at least that’s what we did in the 80s.

Also, the last time I saw that friend was about 15 years ago, he’d grown up to be tweaker, and showed up at my parents house on a bike, and asked my brother for a ride. He said he’d pick up the bike later, but we never heard from him again, but apparently he’s a registered sex offender now. I’m not saying that lighting your own farts with matches as a teenager makes you grow up to be a meth-addicted sex criminal, but I’m also not saying it doesn’t. In this case the odds are 50/50. Anyway if we’d have had access to a laser, we’d have probably tried it, and burned the house down. Anyway, “laser ignites fart,” it also ignites a trip down memory lane. Nostalgia is weird.

Have You Heard About The Tug Toner?



tug toner

Have you ever come across a ‘tug toner’ or at least heard about it? If in case you have not, you will likely find this to be very interesting. There is certainly no shortage of fancy exercise gadgets in the marketplace. Ever since the rise of the fitness culture, there has been a never ending flow of fancy workout gadgets that promise the sky and indeed, even the entire universe.

For proof, one need not look further than the infomercials that play at the middle of the night, hawking the latest in workout systems which promise fast results and at the most convenient prices. Then again, you could also go to your local sports gear shop or even gym where there are even more crazy fitness gear, with each one looking weirder than the one just before it. This obsession over weird and whacky workout gear is certainly not new. It has in fact been happening for a very long time – at least since a couple of decades.

However, it has only been in the recent past that the concept has taken off with such an aggressive level of marketing. Much of this can be attributed to a massive increase in the reach of the mass media across the world. Today, the mass media has the power to reach millions of people through a variety of different ways, be it newspapers, magazines, television, radio, etc.

Regardless of how the advertising is done, the fact is that marketing agencies can target more consumers than ever before; to the point that they often end up with issues of backorders, which may be to the tune of thousands or even millions of units.

Introducing The Tug Toner

When it comes to strange exercise contraptions and gear, one need not look any further than the tug toner.

The tug toner happens to be a very popular fitness fad that has become rather commonplace in health circles everywhere. With a promise to deliver stunning results unlike any other product currently available in the marketplace, the tug toner happens to be one of those things that have started to gain the attention of plenty of people, regardless of whether or not it actually works.

At least is what you are made to believe when you look at the tug toner contraption, because the fact is that is that nobody really knows the truth about the product. In fact, there are plenty of people who are searching to buy it online without being able to find the original seller of the product.

So Why Is This The Case?

There doesn’t seem to be any clear cut answer to this question but it seems like the craze for the tug toner began when it was featured on the popular talk show, Jimmy Kimmel, where it was apparently sold at the Walgreens outlet. Since comedy happens to be one of the main and predominant themes of the Jimmy Kimmel show, it is very likely that the product doesn’t exist in real life and very likely nothing more than a satire.

After it was shown on the show, the product quickly became very popular with people wanting to buy their own tug toner for its many wonderful fitness and health benefits. Despite all the popularity, it seems likely that the tug toner was largely nothing more than a satire of late night infomercials that hawk the latest gizmos which promise the world.

Is The Tug Toner Real or Fake?

In fact, a lot of people have searched for the product online but have not been able to find it available for sale. It is in fact something that many have even dedicated entire blog posts for, which can be easily found through a simple search on Google or any other search engine.

At the same time however, it should also be noted that there are people who have started taking advantage of the new market demand for the tug toner and have begun selling imitation products on various online stores. Therefore, should one come across a product labeled as the ‘tug toner’, it is very likely that it is nothing more than an a cheap imitation of a concept that was used as satire for mocking phony fitness gear that is frequently hawked at midnight by shady salesmen.

In all, the tug toner is perhaps the best example of a satire product meant to mock the various nonsense fitness gear that have flooded our marketplace. Also, it is very likely that the product doesn’t really have an original manufacturer and is for the most part a cheap imitation created by clever capitalists to seize the moment and take advantage of this new found tug toner craze.

Best Magical Girl Anime You Should Check Soon



magical girl anime

The world of anime will not be complete without the magical girl anime genre. If you have always been a fan of this genre, you should check out the different ones available. Even if you prefer other genres of anime, you will not love anime unless you see one under this genre. Who has not heard of Sailor Moon?

The magical girl anime genre is very popular probably because of how the superheroes are portrayed. People have assumed that this genre will only appeal to the younger generation who are mostly girls but over the past years and all of the different stories that have been created under this genre, there are more male fans coming to pass. There are still a lot of anime series with cute themes but a lot of them are now dealing with more serious issues like heartaches and loss. It will be nice to watch an anime series that talks about the sacrifices that women have to undergo in order to become the protector of people, right?

These are some of the series that you have to try watching soon. For sure, you will not have any regrets.

  1. Demashita! Powerpuff Girls Z

While this may seem similar to the Powerpuff Girls that can be watched on Cartoon Network, you will be happy to know that it has a manga counterpart. The creation of these girls happened when Professor Utonium along with his son named Ken create a new chemical that they have labeled as Chemical Z. There were black and white lights that have erupted and after that, the 3 girls were created. There are some differences with the American counterpart so if you have loved the American version, this may come as a surprise for you. For one thing, Blossom’s personality may be a bit different from the leader-type that she was in the American series.

  1. Tokyo Mew Mew

Momoya Ichigo is just a normal girl who is excited about going on a date with her crush but the night changed everything as she has been injected with cat DNA. She becomes Mew Ichigo and she has to save her crush from the evil clutches of the monster. She has learned after she fought the monster that there are still 5 more girls who are also infused with other DNA. It is her responsibility to look for these other girls. It might seem easy but she has another problem: she has to get to school on time. This is a magical girl anime series that may be appealing a lot of young girls.

  1. Sailor Moon

Can a list be complete without Sailor Moon? This is a story about Usagi Tsuniko who was taught by her pet cat, Luna about the powers that she can use to save the world. She was able to meet some people who will become her friends and her foes. The whole story just talks about her many adventures and the adventures of her friends too that she has given powers through their rods. You can tell that this is one of the series that is worth watching because it is out of this world.

  1. Card Captor Sakura

There are still a lot of people who will say that this is one of the best series that they have watched. It will be hard to argue with them because this is good. This is well-known and people who have watched it before will re-watch it again if they could. This talks about the story of Sakura Kinomoto and how she has unleashed the power of the cards when she opened it in her basement one day. From then on, she has been chosen to go on a journey which is to find the other cards that are missing or lost.

  1. Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica

This is an anime series that talks about Madoka. This hardworking girl is someone who enjoys living a normal life but all of these things changed when she was exposed to another world wherein witches existed. She is then given a choice if she would like to become the magical girl that she is always dreaming about or she would forget about the world that she was exposed to in order to keep the things that she loves. This is a series that may not be appreciated by the younger generation but will be liked by those who have watched different anime shows for a long time.

With all of the magical girl anime series that are mentioned above, which one would you like to check out? The decision will be up to you.

Howard Stern Podcast – Should You Try it Out?



howard stern podcast

If there is one podcast that you should listen to, you will be recommended to check out Howard Stern Podcast. The SiriusXM’s personality actually started out the podcast because he wanted to be noticed more and become likable. The more that people like you, the better your chances that your shows will rate. Even though it was his decision, he made it public even though he thought that podcasts were not as good as he figured it would be.

There was a time when podcasts were very popular. A lot of people would gladly tune into one podcast after the other because they are interested in all the things that people are talking about. There are some who specifically like certain podcasts. If you want to start with one podcast, you can check out Howard Stern podcast soon. You can also see some of the videos and clips from different shows.

Howard Stern made a lot of enemies when he said that he personally thinks that podcasts are not as good as they should be. People have assumed that he is not thinking rationally. Podcasters said that Stern just did not get the magic of the podcast but fast forward to a couple of years later and it is evident that podcasts are not as popular as they used to be. It seems that people are finding it hard to find topics that they can talk about.

Expect that podcasts will offer these things:

  • Same stories that are told in different ways.
  • Same tones depending on the emotions that are supposed to be evoked from the listener.
  • The guests that become part of podcasts are the same.

It is okay if you would like to see the guests of the show or you are a fan of the guests but if you are not and you see the same guests all over and over again, it will be enough to make you lose interest with podcasts in general.

Business Model Isn’t Working

The reason why podcasts were created in the first place is for business. Aside from the stories that will be discussed, there are also some advertisements of various brands. Studies show however, people who listen to the advertisements of podcasts usually do not purchase or give a second look to the ones that are being advertised there. The products are usually unreliable or they may not be good for the health. Shoppers now are smarter than before. They take different measures before they decide if the product is good for them or not.

There are also a lot of podcast listeners who fast forward the commercials in order to listen to the rest of the things that are being talked about.

Howard Stern’s Show

You may think that because of his declaration about podcasts in the past, that he would end his podcast right then and there but on the contrary, he started doing a podcast that is more to his liking after he quit America’s Got Talent. These are some of the changes that are evident:

  • He has cut down the number of celebrity interviews that he used to do.
  • His episodes may be dedicated to having fun with his staff.
  • He also spends time with his Wack Pack. If you are not familiar with this, the Wack Pack is a group of people who have gone through different things in life.
  • He also has a correspondent who goes to events that are happening currently.

What makes his show one of the ones that you should watch is because of the fact that he is no longer tired. He is doing something that he enjoys and he does not have to balance that out with another show anymore.

If you are going to endure long travels, you may want to download some episodes of Howard Stern podcast soon because it will keep you entertained for sure. You will also learn a lot of offbeat information that you can use as a conversation starter when you meet up with your friends or even when you are just trying to converse with a stranger.

Just remember that one whole session will be about 40 minutes. This is shorter than other podcasts that may last for about an hour or so but if you are into things that you will not hear anywhere else, the Howard Stern podcast is the best one to check out. You will be pleasantly entertained. If you have abandoned it before, give it a try now. You may be pleasantly surprised.
