Inspired by marshmallow shooters, this air-powered tampon gun turns your feminine hygiene products into high-flying projectiles. Have a shootout between rival tampon brands, or use it as a fun alternative to paintball. The tampon shooter has a range of 10 to 20 feet depending on your ammo. The matching bandolier lets you carry a full “clip” (i.e., box) of 20 tampons, so you’ll never be caught short in the heat of battle.

The fate of thousands of Mazda Motor Corp cars is uncertain after the ship carrying them rolled over on its side in the Pacific Ocean.
More than half the cars on board are Mazda 3 models, the car maker’s best selling vehicle. Another quarter of the cars are Mazda’s all-new 2007 CX7, a crossover utility vehicle, Barnes said.
The shipment is fully insured against loss, Barnes said, adding that Mazda had been unable to verify the condition of the cargo with Mitsui since the accident.
“We just don’t know,” he said. “We don’t know the condition of the cargo and whether it will have to be scrapped.”
The Coast Guard said nobody is permitted to board the stricken vessel, but the agency said it was making preparations in case the salvage company wants to tow the Cougar Ace into Alaskan waters.

Well, we got a deal too good to refuse on a Roomba today (If you don’t know what it is.. http://www.roomba.com.au ).
It’s sitting in it’s little dock right now for it’s 3 hr initial charge. Straight out of the box, I put it in the middle of the lounge-room and pressed “clean”, it started cleaning, but quickly realised it was about to run out of battery, so drove itself to it’s dock and settled-in for a charge. It’s almost cute.
The suspense is killing me. My wife has banned me from hiring a cleaner for the house, so we now have our first Home Robot… I plan on buying one robot a year ’till either the house can clean itself, or she gives in…
Stay tuned for info after it’s first run around the house.
I wonder what the dog will do??
OH my LORD! I’m in love with it…. This thing is fantastic.. One minute it’s up the hallway, the next, it’s under the couch (which has not been cleaned under since we bought the place !), then it’s off across the room and under the dining table, in the kitchen and off who-knows-where next.
They could take sesame seeds off the market and I wouldn’t even care. I can’t imagine 5 years from now saying, “Damn, remember sesame seeds? What happened? All the buns are blank! They’re going to have to change that McDonalds song to, 2 all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions on a… bun. “What’s a sesame seed grow into?” I don’t know, we never give them a chance. What the fuck is a sesame?! It’s a street. It’s a way to… open.. shit. How does a sesame seed stick to a bun? That’s fuckin’ magical. There has to be some sesame seed glue out there. Either that or they’re adhesive on one side. Peel off the backing, place it on the bun. Now your bun will look spectacular!
My bladder isn’t exactly huge, but I’ve been blessed with never having to wake up to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night (give me another 30 years). But for those who pee in the dark to not wake up their wives, there’s Steuler Fleiesen Tiles that embed LED lights into each tile to illuminate your path.
The tiles can be embedded on the floors, walls or the ceilings, and are available in blue, yellow or white. The LEDs are single solid color or slowly alternating colors for a relaxed rave feel.
Now I can make sense of those weirdos who shower in the dark.
You know who you are.

The Motorola PR guys are working overtime today announcing yet another phone. The MOTOFONE is a slim, 9mm-thick phone that looks like the SLVR but thinner. Its display uses Electrophoretic Display (EPD) technology to make the screen more visible in sunlight.
Motorola also says there’s a redesigned UI that’s based more on icons than text, which is good, because we never liked Motorola’s UI anyway. Other than these slim details, the only other thing announced in the press release is that prepaid customers will get an update of how many minutes/messages are left after they make a call or send a message. The phone will be available sometime in the latter half of ’06.

“I like the buildings that have the revolving restaurants, you know? I’ve never been in a revolving restaurant, but one time I took my girlfriend to a merry-go-round, I put her on it, and I gave her a burrito.”
