Quick Links: Breasts!

The following links are all "safe for work." I had a bunch of breast-related links accumulating in my bookmarks folder, so I figured I would lump them all together.

Bare-Breasted Statue Gets Cover-Up
image Police speculate it was a prankster who put a bra on the statue of "Mother Iowa" outside the Iowa Capitol. Though, to be specific, it was a faux bra: "'It's not really a bra; it's just two shirts designed to look like that,' said Iowa State Patrol Sgt. Ted Wright. The "bra" was cut off by government workers and thrown away." I'm wondering if John Ashcroft was seen anywhere in the vicinity.


How to spot a boob job
Advice from the Korean chosun.com: Augmented breasts are less flexible, bounce less during exercise, too symmetrical, do not flatten when lying down, etc.

Breasts Implants Stop Shrapnel
Weird, but apparently true: "An Israeli woman's breast implants saved her life when she was wounded in a Hizbollah rocket attack during Israel's war with the Lebanese group, a hospital spokesman said on Tuesday. Doctors found shrapnel embedded in the silicone implants, just inches from the 24-year-old's heart."

Gummy Bear Implants
A new form of breast implant may soon be available to women in the US: gummy bears. "You have probably heard of saline and silicone implants. Now, there's the "gummy bear." That's the name many give to the new cohesive gel implants. "You can literally cut across the implant, squeeze it, and it kind of bulges out just like gummy bear candy would do," said Dr. Mike Zwicklbauer"

I like how they have to explain that the statue wasn't really wearing a bra. I mean, it doesn't even particularly look like a bra considering the big tied area in the center and the fact that the hand is inside, but they thought it looked real enough to state "It's not really a bra." People these days...

"And the fact that the hand is inside..."

LOL People are so gross, in a sickly great way.

Maybe instead of lumping these links together you should have squeezed or pressed them together.

It was a quotation. But I've seen it spelled both ways.

Is it not transliterated? So it could be spelt either way? I could be wrong.

Owen's right.
There's no standard system for transliterating Arabic names to English, so anything fairly close is acceptable.

"... squeeze it, and it kind of bulges out just like gummy bear candy would do ..."

Uh, don't natural breasts "kind of bulge out" when they're squeezed? Silicone implants would too, wouldn't they?

If you visit Balboa Park in San Diego you'll find plenty of bare-breasted women supporting the roofs of some of the buildings. I'm surprised Alex didn't mention them seeing as he lives in SD. They are rarely noticed but when they are it's amusing to watch the finger pointing of unsuspecting tourists.

There's this art store down on prospect street in la jolla. They have all this normal arty stuff in the window, but if you look at the rack at the far left there are small figurines of naked people in intricate sexual poses. I mean, these things are highly profane.

I use to work near there, and my co-workers and I use to watch unsuspecting tourists window shopping. They look all normally at the window and all of a sudden their expression will change when they realize what they're looking at.
