Hogzilla the Monster PigIn this photo released by Melynne Stone, Jamison Stone, 11, poses with a wild pig he killed near Delta, Ala., May 3, 2007. Stone’s father says the hog weighed a staggering 1,051 pounds and measured 9-feet-4 from the tip of its snout to the base of its tail. If claims of the animal’s size are true, it would be larger than “Hogzilla,” the huge hog killed in Georgia in 2004.

eCigarette (not iCigarette… it’s electronic, not virtual)

ecigarette.jpgI saw this on digg.  It’s called eCigarette.  It’s an eCig because it’s electronic. It’s a small nicotine inhaler, disguised as a working cigarette. It delivers the needed amounts of nicotine, but without the tar or smoke.  When you breathe in it pushes thick steam in your mouth, so you have something ‘tangible’ to inhale and to exhale.  Even people who are trying to give up smoking and are treating their addiction with gum or plasters feel the need to smoke, because they’ve become addicted to this activity and its effects.  This might actually help.  It caught on in China.
