But only because I had not yet been born. According to the 19 September 1921 issue of the Minneapolis Tribune, a prestigious panel of experts judged French actor André Brulé the greatest kisser in the world:
According to the jury, Brulé's perfect kiss was according to the following procedure. He took careful aim, and then with his right arm waistward and his left foot used as a pivot, swung suddenly, implanting the kiss exactly in the middle of the mouth. The advantage of this method, which, it is declared, requires long practice, is that the girl has no time to escape.
Berenger's style consists in seizing the chin softly but firmly in the left hand, while the right hand behind the neck insinuates the head forward.
The jury styled the American kisses as “flaccid,” the Russian “eruptive,” the Italian “burning,” the English “tepid,” the Spanish “vampirish” and the French “chaste.”

The question of when -and how- humans first started making cheese has confounded archaeologists. Cheese=making was a big step for civilization, as it allowed lactose-intolerant adults to consume a dairy product, and it was a way to preserve nutritious milk for much longer than otherwise possible. We still don't have the answers, but another clue in the history of cheese has been discovered. According to a new paper in the journal Nature, evidence of cheese-making can be found in 7,000-year-old clay pots.

Bucks Burnett has a lot of eight-track tapes -enough to stock the world’s first eight-track museum! That one is on Texas; now Burnett is opening a second eight-track museum in Roxbury, New York. Burnett sat down for an interview about his retro passion for Stereo 8 tapes and his museums.
Burnett also explains why the rarest eight-track he has is so rare, and lots more you didn't know about the history of recorded music, art Collector's Weekly. There's also a bonus video tour of the museum. Link

150 years ago today, the Army of the Potamac and the Army of Northern Virginia were locked in a bloody slaughter near Fredericksburg, Virginia. On the third day of the five day engagement, a Union assault on Confederate positions at Marye's Heights was repulsed, leaving thousands of dead and wounded Union troops in the no-man's land that formed between the two armies after that fight.
Sergeant Richard Rowland Kirkland, CSA, could not help but feel compassion for his wounded enemies, crying out helplessly for water. With difficulty, he acquired permission to take water out to the Union wounded:

Photographer Nacho Alegre, along with graphic designers Ana Dominguez and Omar Sosa, came up with a bright idea for photographing bread- stack the loaves into leaning towers and capture the crusty balancing act for Apartamento magazine.
Somewhere a bakery window designer will be inspired by these layouts, and the balance of bread will be restored...

It was a hobbit-nail, and that means comfort. But perhaps some difficulty typing. Nail art maestro Kayleigh O'Connor added Bag End to her thumb along with some pleasant greenery from the Shire. She writes:
O'Connor also made an impressive set of Gandalf nails.

Well, of course it was Finn and Fionna! I know: a lot of people (including, embarrassingly, me) predicted that Finn and the Hot Dog Princess would ultimately tie the knot. But ImSodaHyper guessed right and made this wedding cake topper out of polymer clay for the happy couple.

A lioness named Pasha in Zimbabwe has given birth to a record litter of eight cubs! Pasha lives at the Lion and Cheetah Park near Harare. Lions normally give birth to two cubs at a time.
Dr Hillary Madzikanda, the Zimbabwe National Parks and Wildlife Management Authority's head of scientific services gushed: “This has never happened in the history of lions, the world over. It is actually a world record.”

The mysterious ShinodaGE, a "brony graffiti artist," inscribed these images in Trelew, Argentina. Street art has long served as the vanguard of emerging, revolutionary movements.
The bronyhood is rising.
You can't stop it.

At long last, a breakthrough in totally unnecessary toilet design. If you're in the market for a porcelain throne that not only plays music while you do your business but also raises and lowers the seat, flushes and turns on the bidet via wireless command from an accompanying app, then maybe wait a few months. The SATIS line of toilets from Japanese brand Inax will launch in February 2013, and in addition to the aforementioned features, will offer energy and water consumption info, programmable personal settings, and built-in speakers for the ideal bathroom experience.
All of this, and the SATIS will also "honorably accept your waste." How have we lived so long without this? Video and even more info on RocketNews.

Kids, would you like to see your teacher throw up on camera? The Northrop Grumman Foundation is here to help. Or was. Sadly, the Weightless Flights of Discovery Program was shut down last year. But while it operated, the program put teachers into vomit comets. Here's a flight from 2010 that also involved a lot of ping pong balls.

Santa Claus is trying to update his image, so he's traded his long white locks for a candy cane mohawk!
Santa doesn't look as warm and cuddly with his new hardcore 'do, what's next- replacing the reindeer with flying choppers?

When a package arrived at the University of Chicago addressed to Henry Walton Jones, Jr. (aka Indiana Jones), eyebrows were raised.
When they opened the package and found a bunch of stuff directly related to Indiana Jones movie mythology inside a manila envelope mystery began.
Here's more on the mystery package:
