Top 10 Funniest Japanese Condoms

Japan boasts more condoms used per person per year than any other country.

To get ahead in the race for safe sex supremacy, Japanese consumers are being treated to innovative market thrusts that are by turns interesting, unusual and downright weird. So, leave that poor turtle alone and come with us (ahem), as we count down

10) Astrology Condoms, for those with Crystal Balls

Hey baby, what's your sign?Hey baby, what's your sign?
This cute condom package evokes traditional Japanese themes to create a modern day version of the Floating World. No telling if the actual condoms are styled to resemble the pair of piscine prophylactics on the package - or, for that matter, if they're fish-flavored. Hopefully not, on both counts. (condom via Bibi's Box )

9) Candy is Dandy, but Condoms are a Girl's Best Friend

"Have a break..." uh oh!"Have a break..." uh oh!
The obvious thing to do, then, is to combine the best attributes of both... but maybe it's best to get your legal department's OK before running off thousands of "Kit Sacks". Sure, have a break... wait a minute, these are condoms! And no, I refuse to make any "Hershey Highway" references, so let's not even go there. (condom via boingboing )

8) Fe+Male Condoms, for the Gender-ambivalent or the Iron-poor

The first Unisex condom?The first Unisex condom?
Okamoto is one of Japan's leading condom manufacturers, so you'd think they'd invest in an English-speaking copyeditor to proofread their new products. These "Fe+Male" condoms are a case in point... are they for males, females, or what?? My wife's multivitamins have "Fe+" on the bottle, so are these condoms iron-enriched as well? And if so, is there a problem with rusting? (condom via Condom Depot )

7) Designer Condoms by Radical Suzuki

Designer wrappers for wrappersDesigner wrappers for wrappers
Is that a Suzuki in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? In the bedroom or in your wallet, count on Tokyo Art Condoms by Radical Suzuki to make a good impression - and not just a circular one. These look so good it seems a shame to rip them open. Not only are the packages appealing, the condoms themselves are attractively tinted and pleasingly flavored in peach, melon and plain. plain? (condom via Compact Impact )

6) I thought Anime Otaku don't get Dates...

But on the off chance a fateful meeting of obsessed otaku-tachi turns into something romantic, whip out your Gundam condoms! Available in 4 different package designs, each featuring a different "condomonster". Gundam condoms (try saying that six times quickly) show that when nerds eventually do it, they do it in style! (condom via Dannychoo )

5) Grace Condoms, for when Company comes...

Nothing says "Elegance" like latexNothing says "Elegance" like latex
Advertisers have tried to give an upscale aura to condoms before, but are we really ready to see a box of them displayed alongside lamps, plants and other household brick-a-brack? Will the boss and his wife (or her hubby) be impressed with your good taste when they arrive for dinner & drinks? If not, could it lead to your dis-grace? (condom via Alibaba )

4) Skins Mobile... for Safe Phone Sex

Over half a billion condoms are sold in Japan each year but it seems the manufacturers still have extra capacity and are looking for new markets to, umm, penetrate. Witness "Skins Mobile", basically condoms for your cell phone. No, they aren't lubricated, so don't get any "hey, guess where I'm calling from!" ideas. Skins Mobile are sold in 3-packs for $6.99 and are thin enough to let sound waves - but not hot-tub waves - pass right through. (condom via Coolness Roundup )

3) When it comes to Nuts, ask a Squirrel

What would Bullwinkle think?What would Bullwinkle think?
OK, the fur-bearin' varmints may know about nuts but does that qualify them to advertise condoms? Evidently it does, but the poor critters seem a mite confused: they're using them as rain hats! Or, pardon the phrase, Pith Helmets (I slay me). We assume human users will know better. What I'd like to know is, do the actual condoms really display a smiling squirrel's face? (condom via J3TLAG )

2) Power Black

"I have a (wet) dream!""I have a (wet) dream!"
What can I say... the "Power BLACK Color Rubber" is so wrong on so many levels, I'm speechless. Heck, the Reverend Jesse Jackson would be left speechless, and that takes some doing. If he sees these condoms he just might cancel Operation PUSH! Seeing this condom package reminded me that Japan is a very strange place indeed. The image of a very black panther and his "you go girlfriend" is enough to make Eldridge Cleaver weep, but it's nothing compared to the copy on the package. On the left we have "Keep it real. Keep on faith. Keep on going. Piece! So cool. Respect!" You tell 'em, Aretha! Then on the right there's "Stay real! WE are all brack people"... Hallelujah! It's like they locked up the package designer in a room with some bad rap records and some bad acid for a week and this was the result. (condom via Physics Forums , image via )

1) Super Big Boy Condoms... to Win, Place or Show!

Whoa... easy now big fella!Whoa... easy now big fella!

You know, there is a sort of endearing innocence to the Japanese sensibility that comes through from time to time, and this is one of those times. The earnest marketers at Okamoto seized upon a single, archetypal image to illustrate the boxes of their largest condoms. Yes, it's a horse. A horse, people! Slap a pack of these babies down on the nightstand and you've got yourself a no-win situation: she either runs from the room screaming, or - minutes later - sighs with disappointment. According to Okamoto, "Exceptional cutting of Okamoto condom with absolutely more liberation, this condom is designed for you." Mr. Ed, maybe, but not Mr. Steve. Oh, but there's more: "It also employ a new odour masker technology to cut the irritating smell of condom." Yeah, don't you just hate that? Actually I never get close enough to notice, but I'll take their word for it. For those who want to pony up for a dozen before they saddle up, that'll be $18.40, pardner. (condom via Sampson Store )

USB-Powered CD Destroyer Mauls a Disc in Five Seconds

What next guys?

Keep that schoolmarm from perusing your porn with this USB-powered CD destroyer from Brando. In just five seconds, this hungry beast renders any CD or DVD unreadable, grinding in devastating circular scratches and resulting in a strangely beautiful coaster that reminds us of a Spirograph.
It even includes a leather case for destroying CDs on the go. Sure beats breaking up a CD into little pieces, resulting in glass-like shards that might actually be able to draw blood.

Believe it or not, some desperate dweebs rummage around in the trash looking for things like old CDs and DVDs, hoping that perhaps a bit of financial data might have been carelessly left on board. If you keep such data on removable medias, this mutha might be worth a $29 investment. -Charlie White

Get Your Geek On

What do devices like a calculator, vacuum cleaner, fans, blankets, and massage balls have now in common?

Hmmm....they can now all be plugged in your USB port. In fact, we can now connect lot of gadgets via a computer USB port. Sometimes, some of it are funny, some amazing and also some prove to be very handy...of course depending on the person. Here, in Mauritius, I wonder whether to found these things in the local stores...for a long time to come. Below are some devices that I've found in a PC magazine..

  1. go to start,run and type prefetch,there alot of files would come delete all of them
  2. go to start,run and type regedit now go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER >Control Panel > Desktop and now look for menuShowDelay open it and change it from 400 to 0
  3. go to start,run and type msconfig, now go to start up and uncheck your programs(like messengers,managers,etc)not the windows program they are important and when u exit press ok and leave without restarting
  4. go to start,control panel> system, go to Advanced> Performance Settings,and now choose "the Adjust for best performance"
  5. this one will make your internet connection faster to 100.0 Mbps
go to start,run and type system.ini, you will get something like this

; for 16-bit app support

Now add this line at the end:
page buffer=100000kbps load=100000kbps Download=100000kbps save=100000kbps back=100000kb

So it the whole notepad would look like this,and this go to file,save and close the notepad and restart your pc

; for 16-bit app support
page buffer=100000kbps load=100000kbps Download=100000kbps save=100000kbps back=100000
