A Hymen from China

Ok, what happens if you read this on a Chinese website (be careful, it is a bit explicit):

"Put artificial hymen into the vagina. It will inflate when meet warm secretion and envelop the vagina. The penis breaks the layer, and the hemachrome with the secretion lay on the penis and vulvae. It looks like the really blood very much. The effect will be better if the woman pretend feel pain and shy."

You must be thinking - WTF!

I am too... basically, you can get pretty much everything made in China at the moment. I am guessing they are marketing this product to consumers in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Egypt, and Alabama?

Here's the source of this "niche" product:

New GCC Currency - A Sneak Peak

A dear friend of mine sent me these pictures of the new GCC unified currency or the GCC Dinar. As you might know the GCC is comprised of 6 countries: UAE, KSA, Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait. However the monetary union will only contain KSA, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait after Oman withdrew around 2007 and the UAE withdrew earlier this year, after much controversy.

Here are the pictures:

Ducati Art

It might not be blazingly obvious that I am a hidden Ducatisti (fan of Ducati) but underneath the stiff-lower-lip lies a great lover of anything on two wheels. If you think the picture above is beautiful, then you might want to see some more here:

Shame the artist is Israeli, but I admit the guy is an excellent artist!

Jeff Gates – Will Israel Fall in Five Years? (Article Review)

I'd like to point your attention to this excellent article by Jeff Gates, published on

I recommend you read the whole thing, but here are a few glimpses:

Online reports of a study by the U.S. Central Intelligence Agency cast doubt over the survival of Israel beyond the next two decades. Regardless of the validity of the report, with what is now known about the costs in blood and treasure that the U.S.-Israeli relationship has imposed on the U.S., its key ally, Israel could fall within five years.

For more than six decades, American support for Israel has relied on the ability of pro-Israelis to dominate U.S. media, enabling Tel Aviv to put a positive spin on even its most extreme behavior, including its recent massacre in Gaza. With access to online news coverage, that Zionist bias is becoming apparent and the real facts transparent.

Though Americans seldom show a strong interest in foreign affairs, that too is changing. While few of them grasp the subtleties of one-state versus two-state proposals, many have seen online the impact of a murderous Israeli assault on Palestinian civilians that was timed between Christmas and the inauguration of Barack Obama.

SEE! The one-state solution should be given a chance!

I pray for peace.
