Formula 1 racers are among the highest paid athletes in the world. Every race, they’re driving the most high performance cars on the planet (which women love), in incredibly dangerous ways (which women love), and usually with shockingly perfect hair and complexions.
They’re like supermodels if supermodels were also on the A-Team, and the A-Team was rich; that’s how potent their attraction to the fairer sex is. That’s where the ladies come in.
But, the real question is which country’s race has the hottest girls? Who’s home court has the sexiest advantage? Maybe it’s the ladies of Spain? Perhaps Japan has the edge? Or are they hotter Down Under? Click through to see which country has the hottest F1 girls.

This is the solution to the waffle problem suggested by the following Mitch Hedberg quote: "You have to start the show strong and you have to end the show strong…You can’t be like pancakes. You’re all happy at first, but then by the end, you’re sick of ‘em.”
Yes. Screw whole waffles. That’s too much waf. You can’t be scarfing down that many carbs if you want to stay slim. Enter the wafflesicle – it’s a French invention from a firm called Triangular Concept. And, in fact, there is a whole assortment of waffley creations you can make. None, though, match the convenience and carnival food-appeal of the Wafflesicle. The Waffle and the Sicle mold are available from Triangular Concept for 715 €.
The iPhone 4 has some problems – problems where if you don’t feel like holding it weird – will make you want to buy a case. There’s a design flaw that makes the phone lose reception when you hold it in a certain way in your left hand.
And, if you’re going to buy a case, you should buy this man-tastic one. The Ballistic HC (HC stands for hard core, of course) is a 4-layer iPhone 4 case designed to protect your quite-shatterable techno-bauble from the inevitable dangers of a life well-lived. Designed with several shock-absorbing materials to both correct the connection problem and protect your new, mostly-glass iPhone, the Ballistic HC is about as much protection as you can hope for. Price TBD from Ballistic.
If Gunther had a hard drive, this would be it. Designed by the mischievous design house Morabito who notoriously faked Mac and Louis Vuitton products, this high-gloss (fake) gold hard drive is the stylish way to back up your files.
Originally priced at a somewhat steep (even for a fashion-forward design like this) $260, A Plus R Store has knocked it down 25% to about $200. A non-gold, boring black box with comparable features, for your information, would only set you back $70 to $100. But you’re not paying for storage space, you’re paying for a pretty face, so buy it. The features on the gold hard drive are:
500 GB Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port (USB 1.1 compatible) Fanless Windows/Mac Supported Size: 1.57 "x 4.4" x 7.4" Weight: 31.7 oz Box Content: Golden Disk; Hi-Speed USB 2.0 cable; power supply kit; Quick Install Guide; LaCie Backup Utilities (preloaded): User Manual, LaCie ‘1-Click’ Backup Software (Windows/Mac), LaCie SilverKeeper Backup Software (Mac)
haven"t you always wanted the likes of Judd Apatow, Zach Galifianakis, Patton Oswalt, Rain Wilson, Rob Cordry, and more to give you dark, comedic advice about your life? Us too! Now’s our chance…
"You’re a Horrible Person, But I Like You," is both a statement about the reader, the authors, and an enticing invitation to read and choose to follow or not follow some ludicrously bad advice. In a comedic roundup of the heady punks of standup that is reminiscent of the hilarious and un-useful "Things I’ve Learned from Women Who’ve Dumped Me," these jilted, dark comedic minds tell you exactly what to do with your life (so long as your endgame is to entertain them).

The WOWee portable speaker isn’t really a speaker. It’s a high-tech peripheral device that uses a Gel Audio driver to resonate with whatever surface you place it on – your table, your car — or even you body into a speaker.
Protip: the table is going to work better than your body, probably. We were impressed, though with how well it worked on large, flat surfaces with hollow areas beneath them – coffee tables and windshields. It’s certainly loud enough for a casual house party, and though it’s a little larger than some of its competitors like the MINI vibration speaker, it produces a much fuller sound, and is worth the $80 price tag. Its specifications: Dimensions (WxLxH): 60 x 120 x 25.8 mm, playback duration of up to 20hrs, and audio input: 3.5 mm audio jack. [Buy it]
Father’s Day is coming up and your dad isn’t going to say anything – good dads are full of stoicism – but he probably thinks it’d be nice if you showed some gratitude. He deserves it after putting up with and/or shaping you into the Made Man you are.
After all, he did bring you up from a nose-pickin’ grub to a guy that has a unique way with women, can tell you exactly how he likes his whiskey, is a world traveler, and knows the right way to be hit by a car. He did pretty well. There’s lots of ways to show dear old dad your thanks, and guess what, we’re here to help.
If it’s an option, we buy the waterproof version of a gadget. If it’s not, we try our best to be careful. But there are just too many opportunities for soaking-wet fun (and too few waterproof gadgets) to keep us happy. That’s where Bheestie comes in.
Bheestie is the mystery bag of chemicals that, for once, helps you and doesn’t hurt you. Whatever it is that’s in the bag (trade secret, apparently), it absorbs the moisture out of whatever gadget you just dropped in the drink, left in the rain, or spilled some beer on. Just open the package, insert your gadget, close it and let the mystery, black bag magic take over.
Unfortunately, some gadgets can get shorted out if they get too much moisture in them. And, some, like those with the nefarious moisture-sensing stickers, might be done regardless. But, for $20, it’s worth a shot at reviving your wettened gadgetry rather than tossing it in a landfill. [Buy it]
In one of it’s Wizard of Oz-ian-style announcements, Apple unveiled the next iteration of the iPhone today. Of course, all the pomp and circumstance was mostly for naught since Gizmodo unveiled this gadget with much less elegance, and much more loudly.
But fanboys worldwide still offer a collective “Ooooooo.” The new phone looks just like the leaked ones, but now we get to know all the gory, official details. The most noticeable difference right off the bat is the steel band that encircles the sides of the phone. This is actually a combination antenna system and rigid body that provides the main structure of the phone. It also changes the aesthetic significantly – doing away with the friendly, rounded edges that made the first, candy-like iPhones so virulently popular. Here’s the stats, quick and dirty:
What it’s got - front-facing camera - rear camera with flash - HD display (960 x 640) - 800:1 contrast ratio - 7 hours of 3G talk and 6 hours of browsing - new gyroscopic ‘six axis’ accelerometer - new GPS and compass
What it lacks - 4G connectivity - Flash compatibility
