    Crowdfunding Critic: Modbook Pro X
    Last week, we launched the Crowdfunding Critic here on MacNN and Electronista, and promised that every Tuesday and Thursday we'd highlight a new campaign. While we were working on yesterday's selection, we got wind of this -- the Modbook Pro X, by Modbook, Inc., a modification of Apple's 15.4-inch MacBook Pro into a massive pen-enabled tablet. Based on it, we decided to do our second article in the series a day late, but we think this one is worth the wait....

    What An All-Star: Little Girl Somehow Performs A Loopty-Loop In Rotating Carnival Funhouse
    little-girl-death-grip-loopty-loop.jpg This is a portrait-mode video (come on, lady -- you've had that phone for years!) of a teensy little girl somehow managing to hold on to the rotating barrel at the exit of a carnival funhouse and perform a loopty loop. How the hell did she do that? Was she squeezing it with her legs? Regardless, if the ringleader catches wind of this I've got the feeling somebody has a bright future as this carnival's next strongwoman. Me? I'm going to get a pair of fake tits and become the bearded lady. I'll kiss you for a nickel! Keep going for the video.

If it doesn't make you tingle on the inside you're either not a fan of Deadpool or not a fan of awesome things. Either way, your parents are probably ashamed of you.
  • Game Of Thrones Houses Sigil Inspired Makeup

    Game Of Thrones Houses Sigil Inspired Makeup
    got-makeup-1.jpg This is a series of Game of Thrones house sigil inspired makeup designs applied by makeup artist Allison Chase. Weird, I knew an Allison Chase growing up. She was a nice girl. I happen to know for a fact this is not the same one though. I'm not going to tell you HOW I know, but it may or may not involve calling in a favor from a friend at the FBI. One time I even got him to wiretap my own home phone because I was convinced my roommate was using it to call long distance after I went to bed. SPOILER: phone sex lines. I used the recordings to extort the money for all our bills plus an extra $100 out of him every month. "Oh what, and you never said anything questionable on the phone during that time?" Uh oh. Anybody here think they have the Mission Impossible skills to break into FBI headquarters? Keep going for eight more.
  • That's Too Long: Woman Has Sex Toy Removed From Vagina After Ten Years

    That's Too Long: Woman Has Sex Toy Removed From Vagina After Ten Years
    you-forgot-something.jpg Picture related: looks like she forgot something. A 38-year old Scottish woman recently had a five-inch vibrator (possibly just a dildo, but five inches seems sad for a dildo) removed from her vagina after forgetting it was in there after a drunken night of kinking ten years prior. For reference, that is 9 years, 364 days and 23 hours entirely too long to have a vibrator in your vagina.
    The woman came to the Aberdeen Royal Infirmary after she had been experiencing symptoms including fatigue, incontinence and severe weight loss, and after performing an X-Ray, doctors found a five inch sex toy lodged up in her lady parts, protruding into her bladder. It was then that the woman recalled a sexual encounter from ten entire years ago in which she and a partner had been using it and couldn't remember removing it.
    Listen, I'll be the first to admit I don't know anything about vaginas (in my mind they're like kangaroo pouches), but I can't help but feel like you should know if there's a five-inch sex toy still inside of you. But who knows, maybe vaginas are more like butts than I imagined (I jammed my wallet up there for safekeeping one night and forgot about it for a week). Thanks to lilco, who agrees if you're going to leave anything in your vagina for a decade, it better give you superpowers.

    The Autonomous Robotic Gutter Cleaner gets the job done, hassle free
    Owning a piece of landed property is fine and dandy, and more often than not, preferable to living in the sky in the form of a condominium or a luxury apartment. Having said that, at least you pay maintenance fees to a condominium?s management so that they keep the general areas clean and nice. A house, however, would require you to perform inspections yourself as to whether places need cleaning ...

    The Mega Hammock will let you and your friends relax without the awkwardness
    The nice thing about sitting in a hammock is having your entire body being supported. Aside from floating in water, it’s the easiest way to feel weightless. It’s definitely the best place for a nap when it’s warm and breezy out. However, they’re not generally made for more than one or two people. Even then, if you are sitting in one with another person, you would want to feel pretty ...
