Under The Stars

If you got a projector then you’re good to go if you can find a place to hang a white sheet. But if you’re looking for the ultimate outdoor home theater experience you might want to throw down on this gorilla pimp 12-foot inflatable theater w/ speakers that sets up in minutes (projector not included).

The not so equivalent male and female orgasms

Now we all know that, at least generally speaking, men and women place slightly different degrees of importance on physical vs. emotional characteristics.AA Scientists in the Netherlands have recently found that this difference is also key to how men and women achieve orgasm.AA The brain scans used in the study "suggest that for men, the physical aspects of sex play a much more significant part in arousal than they do for women, for whom ambience, mood and relaxation are at least as important."AA Now you can finally confront your boys who have been hating on you for your candelabras and Barry White albums - that ish is essential!

Other interesting tidbits from the study - keep your socks on, despite how silly you look wearing them and nothing else:

"The experiments also revealed a rather surprising effect: both men and women found it easier to have an orgasm when they kept their socks on. Draughts in the scanning room left couples complaining of "literally cold feet", and providing a pair of socks allowed 80 per cent rather than 50 per cent to reach a climax while their brains were scanned."

Too bad there isn’t a way to hook your girl up to a brain scan without her knowing:

"The scans also show that while women may be able to fool their partners with a fake orgasm, the difference is obvious in the brain. Parts of the brain that handle conscious movement light up during fake orgasms but not during real ones, while emotion centres close down during the real thing but never when a woman is pretending."

Scope the article

[Ed: Deja vu? The study was actually done last summer, but the UK paper The Times posted it back up on their wesbite, and since MNP wasn’t in existence at the original date of publication, we figured it would be a good idea to point all of our ninjas to the study’s interesting results]

Tiger Woods swings like a ninja.

From article on 30gms:

"Nike recently took Tiger Woods to a remote sound studio outside Las Vegas and shot him. With the Phantom v5 digital camera, capable of 4000 still shots per second, a piece of hardware normally reserved for military research. A golf swing that would typically happen in the blink of an eye and generate ball speeds close to 185 m.p.h. is transformed into one, full and engrossing, minute of slow motion video."

The video really is breathtaking, as strange as that may sound…

Watch it. Be sure to check the various angles.

More (and Stranger) Melons…

So we already had a post on the easy-pack melons, so you can consider this story a follow-up.

A Japanese ninja has mastered the art of growing pyramid-shaped watermelons. His technique involves growing the melons inside hand-molded acrylic boxes.
"The melons are lacking in flavor because they are unable to fully mature, so Boui has put them on display at the neighborhood hair salon, among other places. a€oeYou taste them with your eyes,a€A he says."

The Ghostface Spoken Word Compilation…

Ian Cohen over at Stylus Magazine has compiled a top-ten list of Ghostface Killah’s best non-rhyming moments, mostly from skits and random appearances.
Here’s a particularly hilarious bullet off the list:

"5. Intro to a€oeClipse Of Dooma€A (from Fishscale)
Wea€™re used to certain exhortations being made as a rapper adjusts to the backing track. You know, a€oeturn the beat up in my headphones,a€A a€oeI am excited to be on this tune and my producer is currently in the studio,a€A a€oethis is for my hustlas/killaz/the streetz (a.k.a. white internet critics).a€A You probably should take them at least at face value. Here, wea€™re led to believe that one or more of Ghostfacea€™s associates are guilty of the following:

- Sippina€™ on that bullshit Budweiser
- Wearing Capri pants or something closely resembling Capri pants (let that sink in)
- Are in need of a pedicure (strange, considering that males wearing Capri pants likely possess tarsal hygiene above reproach).

And for all these crimes, they should serve their penance by eating a dick. Keep in mind that he coulda€™ve stuck with a€oeturn the beat up in my headphones.a€AAlso, be sure to check out this Ghostface Video on YouTube…
