Alarm Ring – by Yanko Design

Ring is a vibrating alarm designed for people who hate the loud blaring sounds of a typical alarm. The charging cradle is where you set what time you want each ring to go off. The ring fits over the tip of your finger and when that opportune time arrives, it vibrates. Putting the ring back on the dock shuts off the alarm.

The benefits are two-fold. It’s perfect for couples whom wake up at different hours. Never again will you be disturbed from your precious sleep when the alarm goes off. It’s a discrete sensation that only you feel. Another application is for the hearing impaired helping to improve their quality of life.

The World’s Oldest Stash: Scientists Find 2,700-Year-Old Pot

Scientists have discovered two pounds of a dried plant that turned out to be the oldest marijuana in the world. Inside one of the Yanghai Tombs excavated in the Gobi Desert, a team of researchers found the cannabis packed into a wooden bowl resting inside a 2,700-year-old grave. It was placed near the head of a blue-eyed, 45-year-old shaman among other objects like bridles and a harp to be used in afterlife.

At first, the researchers thought the dried weed was coriander. Then they spent 10 months getting the cannabis from the tomb in China to a secret lab in England. Finally, the team put the stash through “microscopic botanical analysis” including carbon dating and genetic analysis, and discovered the stash was really pot.

The fact that the weed had a chemical known for psychoactive properties called tetrahydrocannabinolic acid synthase, or THC, led scientists to believe the man and his community probably used it for medicinal and recreational purposes. According to professor Ethan Russo of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Institute of Botany, someone had picked out all the parts of the plant that are less psychoactive before placing it in the grave, therefore the dead man probably didn’t grow his hemp merely to make clothes.

If marijuana aged like wine, pot users might now be in heaven. But the weed had decomposed over the years, so no one would feel any effects if they smoked the artifact today.

13 of the Dumbest Christine O’Donnell Quotes

1. On Masturbation:

“It’s not enough to be abstinent with other people,  you also have to be abstinent alone! The Bible says that lust in your heart is committing adultery, so you can’t masturbate without lust.”

2. On Oil Seepage

“Biden would like us to believe that off-shore drilling is an environmental catastrophe.  But only 1 percent of the oil pullution in the sea is a result of oil drilling, while 63 percent is the result of natural seepage on the ocean floor.”

3. On Creationism

“Creationism, in essense, is believing that the world began as the Bible in Genesis says, that God created the Earth in six days, six 24-hour periods.  And there is just as much, if not more, eveidence supporting that.”

4. On the Bible

“We took the Bible and prayer out of public schools.  Now we’re having weekly shottings.  We had the 60s sexual revolution, and now people are dying of AIDS.”

5. On Co-Ed Dorms

“What’s next? Orgy rooms? Menage trois rooms? Coedness is like a radical agenda forced on college students.”

6. On psychics

“Psychics put people in spiritual harm, the same way pimps put people in phsyical harm.”

7. On Feminism/being an English Major

“I consider myself an authentic feminist.  Not defined by the modern movement.  And, let me clarify that a little bit more.  I was an English major, so break it down: -ist means one who celebrates.  As a feminist, I celebrate my femininity.”

8. On Women in the Military

“By integrating woman into particular military institues, it cripples the readiness of our defense.  When you have women in that situation it just creates a whole new set of dynamics which are distracting to training these men to kill or be killed.”

9. On Masturbation, …again

“If he already knows what pleases him and he can please himself, than why am I in the picture?”

10.  On drag queen balls

“Drag queen balls celebrate teh type of lifestyle which leads to the disease AIDS.”

11. On the Lord of the Rings

“You see, Tolkien’s wisdom applied to just about everything: Tolkien and communism, Tolkien and industrialization.  In researching this topic I even found a book on Tolkien and sexual fetishes.”

12. On Nude Sunbathing

“I mean, it is very difficult, I’m sure, for a man to sit there and stare at his girlfriend naked and not want to go a little bit further.”

13. On Freak Dancing

“There are drinking laws.  There are – you know, you have to be 18 to smore.  You can’t go to school in a bikini.  On one hand, you have people saying this is squelching their freedom, and then you scratch your head and say look over here, date rape is such an epidemic.  There’s a connection.

…. Wow!
