From the people who brought you "Schadenfreude"...

Shouts of "we did it!" must be filling the streets of Hamburg and Frankfurt, because The International Association for the Study of Obesity came out with their much anticipated report for 2007:
Germany is the most Obese country in all of the Europes!

The report said 75 percent of German males and 59 percent of German females are overweight, the Suddeutsche Zeitung newspaper reported.

Way to go, Germany!

Schadenfreude in the comments section.
Try it! If you fail, others will be relieved...

I like things.

As a full-blooded male, I love several things. Fighting, scars on a villain's face, fishing, lasers. I also love gadgets and watches. Combine any of those two, and I am both pleased and covetous.
Here, then, is a super-cool set of Japanese watches.
My personal favorite is the Shinshoku , which is a cross between the thing Geordi LaForge wears on his face and the bomb that Predator uses. I stand firmly behind any product that blinks.

See the whole list here...
