Toilet-y butt chairs featured in advertisement

Toilet-y butt chairs

The February 2012 issue of 7×7 Magazine includes an ad for DIFFA which prominently features those disgusting “butt chairs” that seem awfully reminiscent of toilets. You may have encountered these chairs if you’ve been to Osha Thai on Valencia recently, as reported by MissionMission.

Alas, the question of who actually wants to be reminded of butts while eating is still unanswered.

Update: Laughing Squid has the dirt on the toilet-y butt chairs.

Soviet Life

A while back, one of my co-workers brought in a 1985 edition of Soviet Life magazine. If you’re not familiar with it, Soviet Life was a propaganda magazine produced in association with the USSR for readers in the United States. As part of an agreement, a similar propaganda magazine was produced by the USA for sale in the USSR.

Amusingly, this issue goes into the wonders of digital television, an idea that didn’t become available outside of the lab until a decade after the Soviet Union broke up.
