Because wrinkles and third-degree burns are mutually exclusive, Fountain Of Youth seekers in China are heading to the spa requesting Huǒ liáo, a beauty treatment that involves setting an alcohol and magic potion-soaked rag covering your face on fire. What could go wrong? SPOILER: The lady performing your facial leaves to take a phone call.
The idea behind Huǒ liáo is to place a towel soaked in alcohol and a special “elixir” on the face, legs or other parts of the body, then light it on fire for a few seconds. This action apparently stimulates the skin and addresses dullness, sagging and wrinkles.
Sounds questionable, I’m going to need to see some medical studies or a commercial with a convincing CG animation of wrinkles being “drastically reduced over time.” I’m joking, just cover me with oil rags and toss a match on me. Not only am I going to look 18 again, but I’ll smell like a barbeque. And, if there’s one thing I know about men *putting on ‘Kiss The Cook’ apron* it’s they love the smell of burning meat.
Hit the jump for a video in case you weren’t sure if the treatment can be applied to your entire back as well (it can!).Related Posts:

This is a 500-pound, six-foot seven-inch Darth Vader cake created by Amanda Oakleaf Cakes, the same folks that made the 300-pound Stormtrooper one earlier this year. Not gonna lie, I probably would have jump-kicked his head off the same way I do my snowmen after they don’t come to life. Even with black magic, WTF!
He was served at the 501st Legion Banquet on Friday night as part of the Star Wars Celebration VI event. In total he weighed just over 500 lbs, stood 6 feet 7 inches tall, and fed 600 hungry Legion members. The most interesting and challenging part of this cake was actually the cape, which by itself was over 100 lbs of our marshmallow fondant, which freely hung from his shoulders five and a half feet above the ground. Also of note is Vader’s light saber, which was a single, solid piece of watermelon flavored poured sugar.Total Ingredients:
386 eggs 2 gallons milk 3.5 cups vanilla 118 cups/ 32 lbs flour 103 cups/ 46 lbs sugar 57 lbs butter 210 lbs of our home-made marshmallow fondant
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Because I’m thinking F*** I COULD REALLY GO FOR SOME CAKE AND ICE CREAM RIGHT NOW. Instead all I’ve got is some cottage cheese that expired Sunday and the spicy pickle-in-a-bag I’ve been saving for a special occasion. A VERY special occasion, if you catch my drift. I’m talking about my first kiss! I hope it’s a girl.
Hit the jump for shots of the build process and Vader slowly getting chunks cut out of him at the banquet.

Seen here performing by the novelty t-shirts, musician ORCumentary sings his chart-bottomer ‘Blood’ at a Hot Topic in Connecticut. As much as I wanted to make fun of it, there’s something about it that I couldn’t help but like. I think it was his energy. Or the fact his entire set was performed to the sweet smell of fresh-baked pretzels wafting in from the Auntie Anne’s next door. One cinnamon sugar, please!
Hit the jump for the I didn’t know Hot Topics held concerts. Or were still open.

Remember Tadao Cern’s ‘Blow Job’ photography series of extreme wind-blown faces? Well this is the minute-and-a-half video of the face-blowing in action. Not gonna lie, it’s GOOD. Especially how some of the models’ eyes keep flapping open when they want them shut. Man, that was great. One time I opened my dog’s eye when she was sleeping and it was like, ALL WHITE. *shivers* Never doing that again.
Hit the jump for the VERY worthwhile video.
Look, I get it, Microsoft. You want to show people who you know how to have fun, that even Microsoft can smile once in a while. But seriously, stop with the dancing routines. Your target audience doesn’t dance. We, at best, sway with the music, but never dance.
As GeekWire points out, the latest nightmare happened earlier this week at the Norwegian Developers Conference where several dancers took the stage and performed to a song with such classy lines as “The words MICRO and SOFT don’t apply to my PENIS! (or vagina)” and “We are here to party and coding is our drug!” Laughter can be heard throughout the video as the attendees stand nearly motionless, likely in shock as if they were witnessing a train wreck in slow motion.
This comes the week after Usher took the stage during Microsoft’s E3 keynote for a nearly equally embarrassing show.
I was sitting in the audience for Usher’s 20120 E3 performance and can attest that most of the gaming industry found the show a bit misplaced; no one got out of their seat as Usher instructed several times. John Biggs said it best, though.
"I really loved seeing Usher on stage at Microsoft's #e3 event!" – Nobody

And of course there is this classic 2009 video of a Microsoft Store breaking out in an not-so-impromptu flash mob-ish dance. At the time I stated the store was trying too hard, but now, three years later, as Microsoft Stores have failed to be capture shoppers like the Apple Stores Redmond is clearly coping, I think they should be applauded for at least trying something.
Please, Microsoft, I beg you. A sweaty Steve Ballmer yelling and jumping around is better for your brand than employing a dance troupe to rally your remaining fans.
