Aaaaaah… the self-deprecating nineties. Well even if you weren’t alive yet you can still remember them, indirectly through sales-based nostalgia. We remember some of the things from the nineties like that song by Enigma that was in Tropic Thunder, and we couldn’t remember at the time but it was Suzanne Vega and her song 99.9F°. Elbows or knees? The truth or lies? We make some tough choices and we learn a little about ourselves along the way. For example, hats and the shiny stickers on the rim of said hats.
The first news story; Prosecco nail polish, the first edible nail polish… lick-able nail polish, it’s not edible, I learned the hard way. This product is somehow associated by Groupon and so there is the associated prestige and sophistication.
The second story is a Skyscraper that hangs from an earth-orbiting asteroid. Look out to the horizon and see the skyscraper hanging down from above… as it slowly drifts by. It would be like an upside-down city skyline. What if you had both the regular skyline and this upside-down skyline?
The third news story is about a $25,000 prize for the smelliest sneaker. There are different factors that are used to judge this contest. I don’t think they used any scientific instruments but instead rely on a judge’s subjective ‘judgment’. I could criticize the judge but I think he’s been through enough. We also learn some of the techniques that the contestants used to develop the shoe’s smell.
