Oh Noes! iPeed on my iPhone.

Another *wonderful* use for the iPhone - STD testing. All you have to do is urinate (or spit) on a computer chip and plug it in. The Guardian reports.

Plastinated Body Parts - Just in Time for Christmas

According to this post in the Telegraph found here, Gunther von Hagens, the creator of the Body Worlds exhibitions is selling human body parts online. The article stated that, "the German entrepreneur, whose Body Worlds exhibitions showed human cadavers in lifelike poses, has told clients they will be able to buy the fleshless corpses which he injects with plastic resin over the internet. The body parts will go on sale from November 3 with whole human bodies available for £61,733." His site offers plastinated body slices to qualified buyers, and giraffe tail or bull testicle slices fashioned into jewelry to the public. If that's not quite your style there is always the purse or t-shirt option plastered with the face of an actual corpse.
