If the prospect of meeting new cultures, exploring new lands, relaxing on tropical beaches, and seeing the wonders of the world up close hasn't motivated you to travel the world yet... I've got another reason that might just work: Sandwiches.

Delicious sandwiches from all over the world.  From the English chip butty (left) to the Swedish smorgastarta, it's a great excuse to get off the couch and see the world.

Check out the list of 15 Sandwiches from Around the World here.  Come for the Maine lobster roll.  Stay for the Men At Work song that's stuck in my head after reading #15.

Talk about a "hard" drive...

The perfect Christmas gift for the porn aficionado in your life.  You can now purchase a collector's edition 250GB hard drive containing every issue of Playboy from December 1953 to December 2009. 


No, it's not just the fun parts.  You can still read every issue "for the articles" - exactly as they appeared in print.  It's available for PC or Mac, costs $300, and you can buy it here.

Shopping for clothes can be hard.  Finding the right style and fit can be a pain.  Especially if you're a strange size.  I've always been a fairly skinny guy, and for years had to search for or special order jeans with a 29" waist.  Or just buy 30" waist and cinch that belt extra tight. But I can't imagine the opposite end of the spectrum where you're so large you can't shop or even order from most of the stores at the mall. 

Enter The Big Bloomers Company.  Making underwear for large women.  I'm not talking "Victoria's Secret is a little tight on me" large.  I mean VERY large women.  As in 9XL and larger.  As in waist sizes over 100 inches - more than three times my current waist size.  You can check them out for yourself at www.thebigbloomerscompany.co.uk

Spokesmodel or Bullfighter?
I get it.  Fat chicks need panties too.  But holy s*** people, XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXL?  8.75 foot waistline???  What the hell, have you never heard of exercise? Dieting?  Portion control?  I'm not saying you need to be supermodel thin.  I'm not saying you even have to join a gym or eat nothing but celery.  But take a walk every once in a while!  Instead of having two Big Macs, try just one for lunch today.  Maybe a glass of water instead of the 2-liter of soda you have with every breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack?

Apparently everyone in the world is doing great.  How do I know this?  Because there's a group in England that's doing a very special kind of charity work this holiday season.  They're not volunteering at a local soup kitchen or ringing the Salvation Army bell in front of the mall.  They're not buying toys for orphans, giving blood, or even writing a check to the United Way. 

So how are these resourceful Brits helping the world become a better place?

Chicken Sweaters.

No, it's not the latest Lady Gaga fashion trend.  They're literally knitting sweaters... for chickens. Not coats for the homeless.  Not even blankets for the elderly.  Sweaters.  For chickens. 
Seriously, WTF?

Here's the full story.

  1. AC/DC - Highway to Hell
  2. The Black Crowes - She Talks to Angels
  3. The Rolling Stones - Gimme Shelter
Theme :: Altamont.  On this day in 1969, the Rolling Stones, Jefferson Airplane, Santana, CSNY, and others held the Altamont Speedway Free Festival.  The festival was expected to be a west coast Woodstock.  However, with security being handled by the Hells Angels motorcycle gang, the event was marred by violence including one murder and three accidental deaths, in addition to numerous injuries and extensive property damage.

The show was captured in the documentary Gimme Shelter, which I'd highly recommend.

OK, so today isn't technically the birthday of Hello Kitty (officially listed as 11/1/74), but this year is the 50th birthday of Sanrio, the company that makes Hello Kitty.

In case you're somehow unfamiliar, Hello Kitty is a cute Japanese cat cartoon character with an unsmiling face and bow on its head.  It has been put on every product imaginable, from dolls and stickers to school supplies and home appliances. 

I even know a girl who owns a Hello Kitty bong, although there's something disturbing about taking a bong hit through a plastic cat's skull.  Unless you're stoned, then it's hilarious.
Pictured: the perversion of your childhood.
For more on Hello Kitty, check out this article from NPR.
