Sauna Pants?

Sauna pants? What will they think of next?

These are supposed to be for weight loss, but I don’t know. I’m going out on a limb to say this is a really bad idea.

These pants are actually listed on Amazon, but are currently unavailable for purchase.

Enjoy the benefits of traditional heat sauna from the comfort of your own home. In just minutes, it will make you sweat in the areas you need it most–the abdomen, waist, back and hips! Just wrap on the pants and lay down for an easy sauna treatment. With adjustable temperature control and Velcro waist and legs.

Monkey Tail Beards

Apparently some men are taking fashion by the razor and starting a new trend… Monkey Tail Beards?

It’s a stripey swoosh across half your face. Hmm, I’m not sure what to think. I’ve never seen this in Real Life, but you can view lots of photos (and submit your own) on

Police Dress in Doctor Costumes, Trick Citizens

Funny Doctor Costume

Here’s a bit of odd news: Undercover police in Turkey dressed up as doctors, wearing white lab coats and stethoscopes, in order to test their citizens.

They knocked on doors and asked people to take fake “blood pressure” pills. According to this report, the police grew quite alarmed when 86 out of 100 people swallowed the pills without question.

Police later returned to warn residents to be more cautious. The police pills were harmless placebos. But a local gang had been using the same technique to give people heavy sedatives and then burgle them.

This just goes to show the power of costumes. Those sneaky burglars, what a dirty trick!

How to Make a Bender Costume from Futurama

I like this Bender costume from Futurama. The shiny metal robot looks fine in a tuxedo, though he might get mistaken for a penguin. 🙂

This was made by Redditor KillbotJosiah. He even sketched a diagram of the costume, showing how he put it together. Very well done!
