Remember that story a few weeks ago, in which Bill Gates offered $100,000 for someone to make a more desirable condom? Well, this is a good start. The Daily Caller reports:

“As an added bonus, J&D’s baconlube™ ultra premium water based meat flavored personal lubricant has been generously applied inside and out for an even more hot pork experience.”
What else would you like to see that's made of bacon?
Bad news for any window shoppers planning a visit to Australia:
Tired of having people walk into her gluten free produce store looking around and asking questions only to leave empty-handed and buy similar products somewhere else, a business owner from Brisbane, Australia, put up a sign announcing would-be shoppers they will be charged a $5 fee for “just looking”.
A photo of the notice in the window of Celiac Supplies went viral on popular social news site Reddit, this week. A lot of people thought it was a joke, but reporters from the Australian Associated Press tracked down the owner of “Brisbane’s only glutenfree and wheatfree store” who confirmed the measure was for real. Apparently Georgina felt forced to take radical action after spending several hours each week giving advice to people only to see them walk out empty handed and buying the same kind of products from local supermarkets or online shops. ”I’ve had a gut full of working and not getting paid,” she told AAP. ”I’m not here to dispense a charity service for Coles and Woolworths to make more money.” Her frustration is also fueled by the fact that in most cases her prices match those of larger supermarkets, but people still prefer to shop elsewhere thinking they’d find them cheaper. As you can imagine, her $5 “just looking” tax has turned some potential customers away, but Georgina says a few have actually paid up.

If you thought never had a reason to go to New Mexico, you might be wrong. From the SF Chronicle:
A single-page FBI memo relaying a vague and unconfirmed report of flying saucers found in New Mexico in 1950 has become the most popular file in the bureau's electronic reading room.
The memo, dated March 22, 1950, was sent by FBI Washington, D.C., field office chief Guy Hottel to then-Director J. Edgar Hoover.
Is it worth a trip?
Whenever you come up with an excuse to not exercise, maybe try to rememver this woman's problem. She's allergic to exercise, reports the NY Daily News.
Doctors told an English woman to stop working out after a peculiar diagnosis: exercise allergy.
Kasia Beaver, 33, breaks out in hives, her eyes swell shut and her throat narrows whenever her heart beats too quickly — doctors think running could kill her.
"It's terrifying, especially if I'm alone with the children," Beaver told ABC News.
Poor, lady. What's your excuse for not exercising?
Remember how everyone became interested in asteroids a few weeks ago--and then suddenly stopped caring? Well, NASA still cares. But not really.
From The Independent:
Mr Bolden gave his stark advice to lawmakers at a US House of Representatives Science Committee hearing on Tuesday, telling them that all that anyone in the US, or indeed anywhere, could do about unknown asteroids or meteors on a collision course with earth is offer up a prayer.
Do you think they should even bother developing a plan?
Barack Obama just returned from Israel, where he had a great time practicing his Hebrew. A few examples:
“Today, I want to tell you – particularly the young people – that so long as there is a United States of America, ahtem lo lah-vahd,” Obama said. “You are not alone.”
“Eretz nehederet” —The phrase means “wonderful land” or “wonderful country,” but it is also the name of a satirical Israeli television show.
“Now I know that in Israel’s vibrant democracy, every word and gesture is carefully scrutinized,” Obama said Thursday. “But just so you know, any drama between me and my friend Bibi [Netanyahu] over the years was just a plot to create material for Eretz Nehederet.”
“Kibbutzim” — A kind of collective Israeli farm that was especially central to life in Israel during the early days of the state, and still plays a role in the national consciousness.
Politico has the rest of Obama's Hebrew here.

A new study shows U.S. women are more likely than men to say they often feel worried, nervous or anxious, according to a recent survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
In the survey, which took place in 2010 and 2011, about 22 percent of women said they felt worried, nervous, or anxious daily or weekly, compared to 16 percent of men.
In general, these feelings were more common in young and middle-age adults than older people. Previous studies have found older adults are generally happier and less stressed than younger people.
