World Of Warcraft Steins:

Nothing says "heroic fantasy" like elaborate beer steins, so it's only natural that Blizzard would authorize these lavish gamerkitsch World of Warcraft steins, which come in Horde and Alliance models. Excellent for holding your Jolt cola.

The Power Of Christ Of Compels You!

Woman beaten with crucifix

GARY, IN -- Pamela Johnson didn't have cash for a woman seeking donations Saturday night, but the beggar had something for her: a beating. With a crucifix.

Johnson, 50, of the 2200 block of Tennessee Street, told police she was returning to her car about 10 p.m. when an unidentified woman approached her in the 200 block of East 5th Avenue, Cmdr. Richard Allen said.

"She said she didn't have any money," Allen read from the police report.

In response, the woman produced a foot-long crucifix made of stone and started hitting Johnson over the head.

Johnson was treated at The Community Hospital in Munster for head injuries, Allen said. "She had a deep cut on her forehead," he added.

Detective LaRia Crews is investigating the assault.

So far, no one has been arrested and the weapon has not been recovered.

Allen didn't mention any other reports of similar attacks involving a crucifix as a weapon.

World's Most Pierced Woman:

When first accredited by a Guinness World Record official in 2000, Davidson had 462 piercings, with 192 in her face alone.

Now, nine years later, she has 6,005 including more than 1,500 that are "internal".

However, despite her eye-watering record, Miss Davidson, born in Brazil, claims she doesn't like being pierced, and suffers for her art.

She said: "I don't enjoy getting pierced, but to break the record you have to get to a high level. I wanted to break the record. My family don't even like tattoos or piercings. But I am happy. I decided to change myself and be me."

Miss Davidson, a nurse who now lives in Edinburgh, was speaking in Darlington, Durham, as she opened a piercing studio.

She officially cut the ribbon at Arcadia.

Shop owner Les Fry said: "Elaine is a friend and she very kindly agreed to open the shop.

"We have got an excellent piercing artist who can perform the most up-to-date techniques."

This is Why You're Fat

This is Why You're Fat is an awful, awful blog about the most fattening foods you didn't even imagine possible. Like oreos with extra filling as tall as the Chrysler building, and doughnuts stuffed with sloppy joe meat. Good luck eating again.

The Sushi Deco Cake:

Courtesy Of: Rebecca Milner

We’ve looked at the trend of cute and decorative lunchboxes for kids, but what about grown-ups? Surely Japan’s tradition of exquisite food displays has something innovative in the works for those who are old enough to actually appreciate the work involved. Enter the Sushi Deco Cake from Ryu Gu Jo Sushi Studio.

The birthday candle numbers and decidedly not sweet ingredients suggest that these cakes are designed for the (increasingly) older population in mind. Not to mention the prices, which run from ¥5,250 to ¥6,830 depending on the fish used. Though considering we spot some delectable looking uni below, they are considerably reasonable.

This is also a nice example of taking a western import, the birthday cake, and bringing it back to Japan.
