Car mechanic invents a better way of delivering babies. With a vacuum.
Delivering babies can be difficult sometimes, and doctors have invented bigger tongs and suction cups to extract difficult infants, but a car mechanic from Argentina has shown the world it can be easier, quicker and safer to just suck difficult babies out with something like a Dustbuster. Even the head of the World Health Organization has praised the ingenuity of Jorge Odon’s invention.
Anyone here have a good reason most of the latest games are available for download from the PSN store EXCEPT for the kids games Skylanders and Disney Infinity? Those games require RFID readers. There are literally no more secure games out there, yet we have to use discs, discs that WILL get scratched since they are KIDS games, and, lo and behold, there's no "portal owners pack" or disk only purchasing option available for either of them either. Hmm...
I’m with you. I’d like to get into both games, but I both think the RFID toys are cool and annoying at the same time. I wish you could play in some good capacity without figures. Skylanders has some small spinoff games for iOS and Android, but that’s it.
That’s a great question, one the popular TV show of the late 1980s left to the viewer. The title of the show refers to the clear role reversal of the two lead actors, where a woman, Angela Bower (Judith Light) was the breadwinner and a man (although he was not her husband) stayed at home and took care of the house. It challenged contemporary stereotypes of Italian-American young males as macho and boorish and wholly ignorant of life outside of urban working-class neighborhoods, as the character of Tony, played by Tony Danza, was depicted as sensitive, intelligent and domestic with an interest in intellectual pursuits. The traditional male and female roles were further challenged by the character of Mona (Katherine Helmond), Angela’s mother, who was the sexually aggressive and outgoing one, also a role that had become the stereotype of Italian-American males in television and movies. It was perhaps this playful role reversal that made Who’s the Boss? one of the highest rated shows of the 1980s.
Koalas, your mom, have male sex organs deep in their throat
During mating season, male koalas can let loose bellows that are way deeper than seem possible due to the koala’s size. This deep noise is pure sex to female koalas, getting their panties all moist and attracts them to the males over long distances, like if you were able to spontaneously croon with the deep baritone of Barry White whenever you wanted. As it turns out, male koalas can produce such sexy vibrations not because of the length of their larynx, but because of folds in the pharanyx just above the larynx, which makes them capable of going as low as 9.8 hz, a frequency that makes Barry White sound like a little girl.
Hey, know any good apps for jogging? Specifically ones that can tell me how far I've gone without needing a data plan or wifi. I haven't really exercised in about a year now, and plan to get my stamina back up before joining the air force or navy. Haven't quite decided just which yet. I'd be happy for some input on that too! Thanks! Loyal fan btw. Been coming back regularly for 2+ years now. Long Live IHC
I’ve heard good things about RunKeeper and MapMyRun, but if you want more than just distance, Fitbit is good for all kinds of info.
Hard-carved javelin spear tips pre-date the origins of humans by 80,000. Probably aliens.
The oldest known stone-tipped projectiles have been found in Ethiopia, clocking in at around 280,000 years old. That’s about 88,000 years older than Homo sapiens. We know that we were not the only intelligent, tool building hominids— there were ones that came before us and existed at the same time as us, and this new find confirms that the rise of abstract intelligence was a long, slow process that occurred through many different hominid species over time. We weren’t the first, and we probably won’t be the last either.
Five new Commander decks just might get you playing Magic: The Gathering again
If you’ve played Magic: The Gathering, you know that it’s a hell of a lot of fun until it’s not. And you know exactly when it stops being fun— when it becomes too expensive to build better decks, too expensive to keep up with friends and locals who spend way too much money on the game, and when it becomes too much of a pain in the ass to keep up with new releases. With the release of five new Commander decks, you might want to pick the game up again, since the recently introduced Commander model is meant for fun, equal, casual play. Don’t worry about whether your opponent has some rare should-have-been-banned card that will wipe you out in one move, just sit down, pour the Mountain Dew and play.
New malware can jump air gaps from computer to computer using sound waves
Right now, the only way malware or any other chunk of computer code can get from one machine to the other is through wires of some sort. But scientists in Germany have discovered they could transmit small amounts of data small distances through empty air using high pitched inaudible sound waves. This experiment can be used to get a step ahead of future hackers who might be able to exploit your computer’s built-in microphone and speakers to receive and transmit data without plugging anything up to anything else.
I have a girlfriend who should be completely my thing. It's been 8 months now, the original excitement has worn off. She's good looking, funny, we're into the same things and obviously cares for me a lot. I enjoy being with her loads, but for me the spark just isn't really there. I don't want to lead her on. Do I continue on? Thanks IHC.
Talk to her. Maybe she feels the same way. Maybe get a little distance and see if you can identify what might be missing for you to be happy.
US Spy Satellite Logo Not At All Subtle: Octopus Enveloping The Earth
Yes, the NSA is a spy agency, working for one of the most technologically advanced nations in human history, and thanks to the likes of Edward Snowden, everyone knows they’ve got their tentacles in everyone’s pies, but fuck, you think they’d come up with a somewhat more subtle logo than a giant octopus enveloping the Earth with the phrase “Nothing is Beyond Our Reach” to put on a spy satellite that was just launched into orbit.This is something out of The Illuminatus Trilogy made real.
Disney gets closer to owning your entire childhood, acquires Indiana Jones franchise
After the takeover of everything Star Wars, it may not be a surprise that Disney wants to continue to snap up Lucas properties to keep propped up forever, before it buys Lego, Transformers, GI Joe, Barbie, Sonic the Hedgehog, Back to the Future and your grandmother’s best recipes and totally owns your and everyone’s childhood. Star Wars is an easy bet— it’s a huge sci-fi world that can keep going and going with different stories and different characters and stories. Disney could keep Star Wars alone going for the next 10,000 years. Indiana Jones however is a bit different in that, as the name implies, it’s about one awesome character, played by one awesome Harrison Ford and I don’t have faith any Indiana Jones spin-offs or outright replacement of Indiana Jones by another actor would be worth a fuck. But I also wouldn’t have guessed Disney could enslave Johnny Depp for eternity to make movies about a Disneyland ride.
Probably around a year and a half, my dad had a job as a house painter and I would go with him during the day and play with toys in the grass. I had this yellow plastic duck shaped wagon I would haul my toys around in, it was pretty awesome.
