Personally, if I had a stylishly mustachioed batman I would happily delegate to him the task of spending all day, every day, doing nothing but unsubscribing to email "alerts" that, with a sardonic psychic violence, always send you one final piece of spam to alert you that you have successfully opted out of their useless alerts.

Instant Mustache



What's the fastest way to grow a mustache? You don't need to drive a Harley to sport a mustache anymore. Nowadays it is very trendy to grow hair in the middle of your face. The most popular styles include the thin pencil 'stache, the bushy "Mexican" cut, or the infamous Dali twirl that twists up at the ends. If you want a mustache and you want it fast, there's only one way to go about it: grow a Chia stache. It's just like a Chia pet, but for your face. The kit includes specialized biotin seeds that are spread onto the upper lip and a packet of nutrient powder to stimulate hair follicle growth. Mix the powder with water and spray onto the mustache twice a day for 6 days. Presto! By the weekend you'll have such a luscious mustache you'll be able to braid it! (Or, you could always leave the braiding to your pet unicorn).

"I've grown this mustache which saves me from having to glue on one every day in the heat." Keith Carradine

A French entry opened the Montreal international fireworks competition this year.


Published: June 27, 2008
LATE last Saturday evening, La Ronde, an amusement park that’s just a stone’s throw from downtown Montreal on an island in the St. Lawrence River, seemed an unlikely venue for a world-class competition. Teenagers with the giggles and other signs of roller-coaster overexposure contemplated yet another ride on the Super Manège or Le Monstre.
