What Men Find Behind Female Masks - Luke Malone

She has thick, voluminous hair that frames the high cheekbones of her conspicuously crease-free face. Her elegant, arched eyebrows and extra-long eyelashes act as a counterbalance to her plump, painted lips. She looks out of frame, as if admiring herself in a mirror, before giggling and batting her eyelids. “Oh dear,” she purrs, tilting her head from side to side. She reaches up and emits a light moan as she unclips her gold earrings and gently sets them aside, one by one. Julie is one of the most visible faces of female masking, a specific subset of cross-dressing men who wear masks, and occasionally skin-tone bodysuits, to make them look more like biological women.

Julie is but one of scores of maskers around the globe; the most popular masking website, Dolls Pride, has almost 10,000 active members. How a Python Can Swallow a Crocodile. Jennifer S.

Embracing Potholes by Turning Them Into Hilarious Imaginative Scenes

You are tired of hitting those nasty potholes and feeling the crushing jar as your wheels take a beating, but you could see them completely differently. Photographers Davide Luciano and Claudia Ficca took to the streets and to the edge of insanity to find new uses for those annoying potholes. The potholes of Los Angeles, New York City, Montreal, and Toronto turned into donut fryers, spaghetti bowls, dog washing business, and even a grape stomping vat for wine. Their creative revamping of potholes gives us a touch of humor for the next time we hit one of those nasty holes, and pokes a little fun at the government agencies that need to get busy and fill the holes.

Dogs Always Poop On A North-South Axis Along The Magnetic Field [Study]

Dogs spontaneously and naturally align themselves with the earth’s magnetic field when they do their business in a preferred north-south direction, according to a new study.

Dogs Always Poop On A North-South Axis Along The Magnetic Field [Study]

Biologists from the Czech Republic and Germany studied the way 70 dogs (42 females and 28 males across 37 breeds) relieved themselves for two years in an open field without being leashed. Based on observing more than 7,000 bathroom breaks, they claim that the canines like the north-south axis because they are attuned to our planet’s magnetic field. On the other hand (or paw), the animals avoided doing their business in an east-west direction. The orientation of the dogs’ bodies was measured as a compass direction of the thoracic spine. According to the findings published in Frontiers of Zoology, “Dogs preferred to excrete with the body being aligned along the North–South axis under calm [magnetic field] conditions.” Minor instability in the magnetic field threw the pooches off of their pooping pattern, however.
