Over on Wired Magazine they have an article talking about ten “green” concept cars that asks the question if you dream it will someone build it? Yikes, personally I hope the answer is no! The suggested designs were big on sporty fashion and included models that were built from glass and one that even resembled a dune buggy. Most of them looked impractical except maybe for the fab and famous, whom are all about style and not practicality. None of them looked family friendly and the only one that might have been theScoundrel friendly had an adjustable elastic top. All I can say is that if these designs are the transportation wave of the future – theScoundrel will be needing to take some basic car repair and refurbishing classes for classic car models or instead invest in a jetpack.

An AP article informs us that a northern Virginia Spa is offering its customers a unique experience in pampering. It seems they have imported tiny carp as part of a treatment to remove dead skin from people feet before a pedicure. The fish are toothless and nibble off dead skin while leaving the healthy skin alone. It sounds like an interesting idea. It reminds me of the working relationship between Pilot Fish and Sharks where the smaller fish hangs around with the shark cleaning up leftovers, sometimes cleaning the sharks mouth and even cleaning external parasites off the shark. It sure sounds less abusive than the pumice stones I use on my feet. I just wonder if they could also figure out a way to turn them loose on my knees and elbows that would not require me borrowing a speedo and walking in the shallow end of a swimming pool filled with the little carnivorous critters.
The Chicago suburb of Lynwood, Illinois has passed an ordinance that fines individuals whom wear pants that the waist band droops down below their hips. The fine is $25. The ACLU is already shrieking their fool heads off. I think the law is sensible though probably redundant since most cities have dress code laws against lewd behavior. Perhaps the city is just using this law as a way of defining lewd behavior. Probably if most of the “styling guys” knew what the looks origin, many of them would not go around flashing their a$$ in public in the first place. The kicker is – I am not sure how a busy police force would find actual time to enforce the law.
According to a Reuters article, environmentally conscious ladies will eventually be able to purchase a new solar powered green “green” bra. According to the manufacturers the bra should produce enough power to charge your iPod or mobile phone. It is designed with a solar panel that will be worn around the stomach. An added advantage is that the solar panel displays messages and the product will come with a pad designed to hold bottle/cans of your favorite beverages. The ultimate boy toy – a place where their boyfriends will probably store beer?
The design does have some obstacles to overcome. The solar panel cannot be covered or it will not generate electricity. I suppose that is not all that big of a deal, the lingerie is not really any more provocative than other items that are worn as outer layers. It looks like the perfect outfit for a day spent in the Wrigley Field bleachers. But the biggest drawbacks I see are – one -> that you are not supposed to wear it in the rain or you risk damaging the solar panel. (You definitely would not want to leave the house with out a raincoat it seems.) Second, and maybe the biggest obstacle in my opinion -> you can’t wash the product without risking damage to it. Yew!!
Also ladies, before you ask, sorry but it did not say if will it come with a battery replacement adapter for your Jack Rabbit Pearl.
