Scientists Have Confirmed the Average Penis Size, and It’s Not What You Think

Ok guys, it’s a moment of truth. Although locker room banter would have you believing every man was hung like a horse, a recent study has revealed that average penis size is something a bit more modest: 5.16 inches, erect. Not only that, but based on the 15,521 males from around the world who were measured, the number of men at the very top and very bottom of the scale are few and far between. Yes, we know you’re running to get a tape measure.

Apple’s announcement last Monday that they are releasing a $10,000 version of their Apple Watch (the ‘Edition’) has the web in a flurry of varied opinion.

Coffee Cups You Can Eat After Drinking

Did you know that KFC is known for its coffee? Yeah, I didn’t either. That is until I went to Indonesia and saw a three story tall KFC and the separate “KFC Coffee” stand next door (yes, they are gigantic there). While in America, a cup of coffee from KFC is just another item on the menu, in other countries it is a big way to increase sales beyond the chicken.

Organic ‘Burial Pods’ Allow Those Who Die to Grow into Trees

The art of being remembered comes in various forms depending on cultural norms and values. Some decide to cremate their loved ones and scatter the ashes, some create a headstone or mausoleum, and some plant flowers around a burial ground. ‘Capsula Mundi’ is a concept for those who would like to be remembered in a life-giving way. Described as a ‘burial pod,’ the deceased would be enclosed in a biodegradable egg-shaped pod which then uses the person’s body as nutrients to feed new life – sprouting a tree in its place.

Dom’Up: A Glamorous Treehouse That Doesn’t Harm the Tree

Most treehouses are rustic, but the new Dom’Up from architect Nicolas d’Ursel and arboriculturist Bruno de Grunne is downright glamorous.

Because it requires no permanent mounting hardware, it is both quick to install and has no impact on the trees it occupies.
