Ironing

Are guys supposed to know how to iron? I don't mean for that to sound sexist, but where do I go to learn? Sure, my mother taught me when I was a freshman in high school, pressing a shirt for homecoming, but since then, I've just been winging it.

I had to iron a dress shirt and a pair of pants for my brother's wedding this weekend and I really had no idea what I was doing. I basically tried to find a wrinkled area, lay it flat, and hammer it with the hot iron. I don't think I ruined the shirt, but I definitely didn't do a professional job.

I opted to really slack off and not do the sleeves or the back of the pants because, come on, out of sight, out of mind, right? I'll have a suit coat on and then when I inevitably take it off, I'll be rolling up the sleeves.

These are my thoughts. I didn't burn myself either, so that's a plus.

Japan

America has the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Japan has, well, this.


According to the Herald Sun

A group of Japanese porn actresses are preparing to have their breasts squeezed by fans for 24 hours this weekend for a charity event loosely translated as "Boob Aid".

The nine adult movie stars told local media on Monday they could barely contain their excitement about the "Stop! AIDS" campaign event — which will be televised live — but asked, perhaps somewhat optimistically: please be gentle.

Apparently this has been going on since 2003. And SHOCKER - it's successful.

From Uproxx (with pictures!): 

For a minimum donation of 1,000 Yen (about $10) visitors to the company's Shinjuku studio in Tokyo met face-to-face with and got to grab the exposed chests of five anchors of the channel's naked news programme. The event - the eighth annual '24-Hour TV: Eroticism Saves the Earth Telefon' - began on Saturday morning and raises around two million Yen (just shy of $20k) every year by offering direct interaction between its leading ladies and he public.

As long as it raises money for a good cause, I guess I'm in favor?

Olivia and Aaron, sitting in a tree

If Aaron Rodgers is happy, then I'm happy. And what about this doesn't make you happy?

On the right is Aaron's girlfriend, the lovely and talented Ms. Olivia Munn.

Green and gold suits you quite well, ma'am.

The Simpsons

Cable TV is about to get a little yellow for the next few weeks, thanks to everyone's favorite Springfield residents.

Per the Washington Post:

When FXX starts airing every single episode in a row beginning Thursday morning, it will shatter the record for the longest-running marathon in TV history.

The animated classic kicks off with the pilot from December 1989 at 10 a.m. The marathon continues through all 552 episodes, going all the way up to the 25th season finale that aired this past spring, and ends Sept. 1 at 11:30 p.m. Wedged between all the episodes is "The Simpsons" movie, which will be shown at 6 p.m. Aug. 29.

After the marathon is all said an done, there's going to be a website where all 552 episodes will be able to be streamed for free, online. Which is neat.

This is a clip from one of my favorite episodes. Obviously it fits in with classic rock.

Foo Fighters

Dave Grohl is the man. Here's the Foo Fighters' take on the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.

C'mon NIU

College is idealistically about learning and knowledge and all that hippie mumbo jumbo, so what Northern Illinois University is doing is wrong.

According to Betabeat:
Northern Illinois University enacted an Acceptable Use Policy that goes further than banning torrents, also denying students access to social media sites and other content the university considers "unethical" or "obscene".

So, you're in college, and you can't connect with people on Facebook while using the WiFi in the dorms. You also can't do anything "political" on the internet, limiting a group of very impressionable young voters. 

But WORST OF ALL, is that NIU is apparently banning Wikipedia as well. Which is a shame, because Wikipedia is amazing in every possible way.

I'd like to think no students is dumb enough to actual quote an editable article like Wikipedia, but any college kid worth a damn knows how to work the sources at the bottom of a Wiki page to get what they need. College would have sucked for me without Wikipedia.

Boo you, NIU. Boooooooooo.
