  • That's A Hell Of A Deep End: New Deepest Swimming Pool Is 40-Meters (131-Feet) To The Bottom

    That's A Hell Of A Deep End: New Deepest Swimming Pool Is 40-Meters (131-Feet) To The Bottom
    worlds-deepest-pool.jpg This is Montegrotto Terme, Italy's recently completed 'Y-40' (aka 'The Deep Joy', which I've actually been called before), the new world's deepest swimming pool (previously: this one). The pool's central well reaches a depth of 40-meters (~131-feet) and is used for deep-sea diving practice. The pool also features several underwater viewing areas (including a clear tunnel) and is filled with spa water kept at 32 - 34░C (~90░F). That's nice and toasty. Still, 131-feet deep? How high is the high dive, a mile? Because I jumped off the highest Olympic diving platform once and I'm pretty sure I got brain damage. My mom said it was just swimmer's ear, but she keeps a lot of things from me. Keep going for a video of the pool, including a guy heading to the bottom.
  • Woman Rewriting Harry Potter Into Conservative Christian Tale So Her Kids Don't Turn Into Witches

    Woman Rewriting Harry Potter Into Conservative Christian Tale So Her Kids Don't Turn Into Witches
    christian-harry-potter.jpg Grace Ann is a conservative Christian mother (and possible troll) in the process of rewriting Harry Potter into 'Hogwarts School Of Prayer And Miracles', a God-fearing tale her kids can read without turning into witches. Like, that's her concern. You know, because that's happened to other children. Her introduction while I go pound my head against the bathroom mirror:
    Hello, friends! My name is Grace Ann. I'm new to this whole fanfiction thing; but recently, I've encountered a problem that I believe this is the solution to. My little ones have been asking to read the Harry Potter books; and of course I'm happy for them to be reading; but I don't want them turning into witches! So I thought..... why not make some slight changes so these books are family friendly? And then I thought, why not share this with all the other mommies who are facing the same problem? So-Ta da! Here it is! I am SO excited to share this with all of you!
    She's completed the first seven chapters of the first book so far, and let me tell you -- they're something else. The book starts with Hagrid coming to rescue Harry from his atheist aunt and uncle who just taught Harry about evolution, then goes downhill from there. You can read all seven chapters she's finished HERE, although I've included the first one in its entirety after the jump. Her poor kids. You think she lets them watch Lord of the Rings? Because I've got the feeling she doesn't. Still, I'm sure they'll grow up to be fine, well-adjusted young adults. "Wanna come over for a sleepover?!" Absolutely not, your mom is nuts. Keep going for the first chapter.

    Now You're Talking: Lady's Handbag w/ 28oz Hidden Flask
    handbag-flask.jpg From hidden flask specialists Binoktails (who brought us the digital camera and hairbrush flasks) comes the $36 Bev-Bag Secret Handbag Flask. It holds a whopping 28-oz (828ml, more than a regular fifth bottle and almost a liter) of your favorite booze. Or just the cheapest booze. Now you can confidently have your handbag searched at a concert or sporting event and still bring the party! Do you even know what the equivalent of an entire bottle of booze would cost in drinks at a professional sporting event? Like $240. That's a savings of a f***ing shit-ton! I'll never complain about having to hold my girlfriend's purse again. Not that I ever have, but I'm into feeling sassy. Thanks to scott, who works for the company and should hook me up with all sorts of James Bond booze hiding devices.

    Create Custom Pixel Waffles With The Pixel Waffle Maker

Obviously, the designs you can make in a 9 x 9 tray are pretty limited, but that's not going to stop me from trying to make every variation of an 8-bit penis I can think of. Cooking for the family? Use the pixels to make each kid's initials so you know who finished their breakfast and deserves dessert and who doesn't. "Who eats dessert after breakfast?" People who aren't afraid to live a little, that's who. Keep going for a shot of the whole waffle maker, go HERE to help pick a suitable price for when it hits the market.

You can go get a massage from a professional, but that’s going to be a very hefty bill after a few visits. Of course, if your pain is ...
