Tickle Generates Fake Phone Calls to Get You Out of Awkward Situations

)

What do you do when you find yourself in an awkward situation? Some people overcompensate by talking a mile a minute, while others fiddle with their phones or even fake making a call, just so they can excuse themselves. If you’ve ever tried going the latter route, then you know just how hard it can be sometimes to keep a straight face while having a fake conversation with no one.

Cue Tickle, a service that generates fake phone calls so you won’t have to pretend anymore. Developed by Alex Cornell and Phil Mills, the app “calls” you when you find yourself in a sticky situation or when you want to leave a potentially awkward or embarrassing scenario. All you have to do is move the phone in a jerky or “awkward manner” (check out the video after the break to see what the developers mean by this) and the app will get to work.

When You Gotta Go, You Gotta Go: Airpnp Bathroom Rental App

AirPnP

 

Music festivals and events like the Mardi Gras are all fun and games–until somebody needs to use the toilet and discovers that there’s not a public restroom in sight. Not to worry though, because Airpnp is here to save the day. It’s an app that hooks you up with a private toilet that you can pay to use at a location near you. If you’re up for making some extra cash, then you can also log on to Airpnp and put your bathroom up for rent.

Airpnp came about from the personal experiences of its founders, who are both New Orleanians who’ve gone through the pain of being unable to find a place where they can pee in peace–and legally.

The founders are both born and raised New Orleanians and during the Mardi Gras they routinely experienced the pain point of having no place to legally urinate. This problem is often solved by using what is known as a “rogue pee.” If caught the person faces a weekend in Orleans Parish Prison. Yet this stiff penalty doesn’t stop thousands upon thousands of “rogue pees.”

You can check out Airpnp HERE.

Home Never Smelled So Delicious: Cinnabon Air Freshener

Cinnabon Air Freshener

 

The stench of mildew and other household odors don’t mix well with fruity or flowery-scented fresheners. While Air Wick’s Cinnabon-scented air freshener won’t exactly make poop smells yummy, it’s a welcome change from the usual freshener scents available. The scent is described as being “one-of-a-kind cinnamon and cream cheese frosting that make Cinnabon cinnamon rolls so unforgettable.”

Eau de cinnamon ana cream cheese frosting with a spritz or two of this? Yes, please.

ForeverNOT Lets You Put a Wager On People’s Relationships

 

ForeverNot App0

ForeverNOT is one of those cruel but fun apps that you’ll probably still get because of the entertainment factor. Not only does it ask you to judge on whether or not relationships between certain friends will work out, but it also asks you to bet on them as well. In this day and age where some people trader partners and get into X+3 relationships in X months, it kind of makes sense (and justifies your usage of the app, especially when they call you up in the middle of the night to say “I think he’s the one!” after only three weeks of dating.)

If you’re not too keen to put your friends up on the pedestal, then you can always weigh in on celebrity couplings, with one of the most-talked about pairings right now being Kim K and Kanye West.

What You Can Buy With $2.2 Mil: An Abandoned Amusement Part in Berlin

Abandoned Park on Ebay

 

If you’re filthy rich and have always wanted to own an amusement park, then here’s your chance to get one for cheap. At only $2.2 million (or 1.62 million euros), Spreepark is a steal. But here’s the catch (there are two, actually): it’s a fixer-upper and it’s located all the way in Berlin.

It comes with all the thrills and frills that most amusement parks have: a Ferris wheel, a swamp, a roller coaster, and a bunch of other rides and attractions. However, they’re probably not the safest rides around because they haven’t been operated since the park shut down over a decade ago. In fact, most of the park looks pretty messy and desolate, with the exception of select areas that are open to tours and a recently-opened cafe.

Spare Tire Mount Grill: No Flat (Stomachs) Here!

Spare Tire Mount Grill

So this is the Spare Tire grill from Front Runner, and the first things you’ll notice are its peculiar-looking legs. In fact, the grill itself looks unlike most of the other grills on the market. The Spare Tire grill won’t be able to replace the grill that’s already in your backyard, but it will be your go-to grill for traveling or when you go camping.

There’s a reason why the grill’s solid steel legs are oriented that way. Staying true to its name, the Spare Tire grill can be hooked over a spare wheel (only those that measure 29” to 37” anyway) so you can fill your car with either more people, more meat, more coolers, or more sleeping bags. The grill is laser cut and forged from stainless steel, with grill and griddle sections so you can cook your food the way you want to.

The Spare Tire grill is available online for $125.
