A habit of tossing dirty cutlery into the side of the sink where the disposal lives

Obnoxious Advertising

Paul Harvey promotes a cleaning product. You see, it all began when Mr. Mom went back into the home. Of course he dreaded the house work. But, like a man, he set about to do something about it. And wonder of wonders if he didn't come up with a miracle. Product X. Yes, it takes a man to invent a cleaning solvent blah blah blah...

Dylsexic Moments

Which comes first in baseball, the top or the botom?
When the door says TUO on it, do you use it or not?
Is it my right eye or my left eye that sees a little bit worse than the other?
Is Daylight Saving Time in the winter or in the summer?
Do I turn clockwise or counter clockwise on my showerhead to get pulsed water?
SOS: dash-dash-dash-dot-dot-dot-dash-dash-dash or vise versa?
Why is "Spring forward; fall back" considered more logical than the reverse?

Project Aiko - The Fembot

Quoting her maker, Lee Trung (

"Aiko was built in my basement using credit card loans and my entire savings account as funding. One of my dreams is to make Aiko walk and do other house chores. I cannot do this without your donations and support. The donations will go towards new motors, sensors and mainboards to design Aiko’s new arm and leg systems.

Aiko is the first android to react to physical stimuli and mimic pain. This technology could be applied to people born with or who have undergone amputations. Aiko is the first step towards a life-like mechanical limb that has the ability to feel physical sensations.

I started to build Aiko on August 15, 2007. About 1.5 months later Aiko version 1 was completed. Aiko made her first public appearance at the HobbyShow on November 2007 at Toronto International Center, and Ontario Science Center a week later. Aiko is bilingual, she can speak English and Japanese.

Yes, Aiko has silicone in her entire body.

Yes, Aiko has sensors in her body including her prviate parts, and yes even down there.

AND NO I do not sleep with her."




Ok, be honest. How many of you had to yawn after looking at this hilariously true scenario? My hand is raised.
