I was recently looking for a good portable percussion massager for sports therapy. I kept landing on the Theravolt massager but couldn’t quite stomach the $350 price tag. I eventually found the Phoenix version of a portable percussion massager and bought it. The Phoenix massager is pretty...

First off, this is too far away from April 1st to be a joke. It is in fact a real product. I’m not Shitten you, Shittens are for sale on Amazon. These moist wipes are in the form of mittens and are marketed for use on babies, pets, and adults. I guess I understand 2 of the 3 uses. Their tag line is “Cause...

SmartNudge

I personally think the toilet seat should be left in the up (vertical) position. I know, I am going against the grain here but hear me out. Guys will be messy pigs guys and would you rather they ‘accidentally’ pee all over the bowl or seat? The last thing you want to do when visiting the bathroom to sit down, is have to clean off a bunch of disgusting sticky urine. If the seat was up, it would be clean and protected. OK, I am done with my rant about that – on to this cool product for the rest of the world who likes pee on seats.

The SmartN?dge, currently a Kickstarter campaign, is simple genius. This little robot runs on four AA batteries and sticks to the toilet lid via adhesive tape. After 90-seconds of the seat being in the up/vertical position it flicks the seat down. This is great for folks who already have a slow-lowering toilet seat. For those who don’t have a slow-lowering toilet seat, they will hear a loud slam shortly after finishing their business in the bathroom.

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...

polimaster PM1208M

With the 2011 Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster still fresh in our minds some folks want to know if, and when, they come into contact with radioactive material. This watch is about 1/3 the cost of typical radiation detecting watches at $320.

The Polimaster PM1208M continuously monitors radiation and counts radiation dose exposure. The watch will alert an audible alarm when it detects high radiation emissions. It also tells time with a Swiss Ronda 763 quartz movement.

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...
