For some reason Americans still like to wash their butts with dry toilet paper. I know, we typically don’t talk about this type of thing – which is probably why we are still just using toilet paper. Forget about all of the wasted tree products (which is hard to do). Toilet paper versus a bidet (aka water) and the water always wins. We don’t wash our cars with dry cloths, why do we do it with human waste? Yucky, right? You know you have always been curious about bidets. Who wouldn’t want their own personal booty...

Humans have been salting their meals since the beginning of time. Salt makes food taste better. At least I think it does. Unfortunately too much salt isn’t good for the body and doesn’t play nice with high blood pressure, which 30 percent of all adults have. So it seems like the choice is high blood pressure or bland food. Yikes. Well an assistant professor and director at the University...

You can’t make this stuff up. Subtle Butt ($12 for 5) are antimicrobial activated charcoal pads that stick on to the inside of underwear to neutralize odors that pass through it. Who knows if it actually works. I certainly can’t test it as I don’t fart. This product raises so many questions that I had to list them. How did this product actually go from a bad idea to a real product? How did this product get over 300 reviews on Amazon? Who...

While perusing Costco this past weekend I noticed a large insole kiosk. The kiosk was named “resa” and they were busy scanning folks feet and 3d printing insoles. Pretty cool idea. Surprisingly there are almost zero reviews of the RESA custom insoles. I will try and swing back over there later today and try a pair out. Update to come. ...

Just like the augmented reality filters on your smartphone that allow you to wear glasses, hats, and other silly faces, dentists are getting in on the game. Researchers in Switzerland have developed a “virtual mirror” that allows patients to try on their new smile ahead of the surgery. This technology was created by Kapanu and is called the Kapanu Augmented Reality Engine. After the patient’s entire mouth is 3D scanned the software can begin overlay some better looking choppers. The software allows for users to see...
