Apparently, run-of-the-mill toilet paper is not good enough for some people. A Japanese company has come up with rolls of “designer” toilet paper who subscribe to a “Toilet Paper of the Month Club.” Each roll is $18. They arrive in specially handcrafted boxes inlaid with silver leaf. Lol.
The 1987 Robocop movie is getting a reboot and is set to be released in 2014. Were movie ideas in the 80s just that good?! I feel like the production companies are rehashing every 80s property. Anyways, I won’t complain. Check out the trailer below.
I can’t lie. Ducktales was one of my favorite NES games as a child. As you may (or may not) remember, Capcom released the original version of their Ducktales video game for the NES back in 1989. It was produced by the key personnel from the ever-popular Mega Man series. WayForward Technologies recently decided to re-imagine this game with updated graphics for the Playstation 3, Wii U, and XBox. Check out the trailer below.
LG has a thing for scaring people out of their wits. While people sat a staged job interview, they were able to see a “window” behind the interviewer that was actually an Ultra Reality HD TV simulating reality. Eventually a meteor shows up and everyone loses it. Worst…job…interview…ever. You can watch the video below (and LG’s bathroom prank). See below.

Three and a half years ago, 38-year-old Sarah Colwill was rushed to the hospital suffering from a severe migraine. When she woke up, she spoke with what can best be described as a “Chinese” accent. Colwill grew up in the English city of Plymouth, and has never been to China. I’m going to assume she hasn’t spent a lot of time with Chinese non-native English speakers with a similar accent. But this apparently how she speaks now.
Colwill has been diagnosed with a rare speech impediment called Foreign Accent Syndrome.
