Can you imagine hitting the wrong button in the middle of the night?

I found this toilet seat attachment at Mitsuwa Shopping Center. While I’m not against the idea of this type of product (because who doesn’t like having a clean butt?), I think I would choose a different model.

That fourth button…

Fumbling with it at night could leave you shocked and wide awake.

Philippines Superstition: Wash Your Face With Menstrual Blood

The Machine Girl

This is actually a screen capture from a Japanese movie called The Machine Girl.  The superstition isn’t anything quite as cool as having your face splashed by the blood of fallen enemies though.  In fact, it’s not cool at all.  It’s just disgusting.

When girls are going through that special time, when they have their first menstrual cycle, the things we hear about most often are tales of confusion and fear, especially in cases when they weren’t properly educated by their parents.  In the Philippines, perhaps not so much anymore, but not so long ago, there was a superstition that if you took the blood from your first menstrual cycle and washed your face with it, you would be spared the pain of acne during puberty.

How’s that for gross?  I wonder if any guys ever asked a girl if she could spare some ‘virgin’ menstrual blood so he could chase away the acne as well?
