The MP3 Breast Implant and other news

Okay, no one ever reads my news posts (I think), so I figured I'd start with something that is eye-catching.
According to UK tabloid the Sun - ever watchful for life-enhancing technology, especially when it's got a big jubs angle - BT Laboratories bod Ian Pearson reckons breast implants may as well do something useful if they're to be permanently installed, rather than just looking decorative.

Accordingly, he's proposed sticking an mp3 player in one dug, and a storage chip in the other. Quite how playback is achieved we're not quite sure*, but it may well involve the listener burying his or her head in the cleavage for a full stereo effect.
You can read the rest here.

Maybe now that you're hooked, you'd be interested in reading the other interesting stuff I found today:
In environment: Scientists: Natural Disasters Becoming More Common
In space: Venus Express set for liftoff
In health: International stem cell bank open
In quantum computing: Qubit link could pave the way for world's most powerful computers
In Nature: 'Zombie worms' found off Sweden
Exploding Rocks Dredged from Seafloor
In WTF: Nintendo in McDonald's wi-fi deal

Love the MP3 news, what a riot. thought you had a typo but the article does too, shouldn't be jugs not jubs? made me smile tho.
Thanks

Melly said...

LOL. You're right. I just copied it and I think my mind registered jugs so I didn't even notice.

redchurch said...

What do you mean nobody reads your posts? :)

Mmm... quantum computing.

Melly said...

No, sorry, didn't mean to sound pathetic or anything...
Occasionally though, I do these clip posts of interesting news items I find and I have a nagging suspicion not many people read them or find the stuff interesting.

Actually, I used to have another blog for this kind of stuff and this blog was 100% about writing, but it was too much work so I figured what the hell and combined the two. So far it's actually been working out pretty well (except for these kind of clip posts).

Where's the volume knob? Oh, there it is.

That's gotta cinch the award for worst joke in this post's comments, right?

Melly said...

If that's thw worse joke, then what does it say about those who laughed (like me)???

Actually, quite funny...

Jennifer said...

:) This is just imformation I had to know! My life wouldn't be complete without these wondeful tid bits :)

Thanks for the laugh.

Pat Kirby said...

So how do you upload new songs? Is there a USB plug-in.

Where's the volume knob? Oh, there it is

Reminds me of an episode of "That Seventies Show." Donna and Eric are discussing the mechanics of foreplay. Donna notes that Eric's first attempts were akin to "tuning a radio."

Ah, and as I suspect, it's not that the world is more disaster prone; it's that the world is filthy with humans.

Melly said...

Jennifer - glad to be of service ;)

Pat - LOL...
Actually, they're talking about some sort of wifi, but I like our solutions much better.

About that other thing you mentioned **sigh** I'm simply not sure what else should be said and done in order for people to understand the seriousness of problem.

Not only do I read your posts, even though they aren't poems and give me nightmares about being chased by enormous Russ Meyer boobs across endless deserts, but I also have zombie worms in my garden which attack the squirrels! By the way, I owe you an apology for misunderstanding your comment about my birthday. I hadn't realised that Blogger took it upon themselves to publish my ageing process to the world!

easywriter said...

How could anyone ignore your news posts. I heard this on the news and just about choked on my coffee. The poor guys on the radio couldn't stop laughing. They were hysterical. Go figure...

Lee Carlon said...

Maybe they think the original design just doesn't cut it anymore.

At some point we need to take responsiblity for our own evolution. ;)

Melly said...

Thank you all.
I didn't mean to sound whiny, sorry...

Stranger Ken, I'm perversly glad to be adding to your nightmares ;)
And no prob about birthday comment.

Easywriter, I thought it should have made bigger waves than it did. The day I found it, I only saw it in one news source. I can imagine them going hysterical :)

Lee, I'm right there with you. This type of evolution is totally what we need to improve our species :)

I have visions of the Star Trek borg and other sci-fi humanoids, minus the intelligence.

Melly said...

Okay, so I can't stop laughing. Not fair :)
