Condoms and a Crab (Nebula)

Wrap that rascal!

The Obelisk of Buenos Aires is covered with a giant condom to commemorate World AIDS Day December 1, 2005.

Crab Nebula as seen from the Hubble Telescope

This image of the Crab Nebula, released by NASA and ESA (the European Space Agency) on Thursday, Dec. 1, 2005, is one of the largest ever produced with the Hubble Space Telescope, the Earth-orbiting observatory. It gives the most detailed view so far of the entire nebula. The space agencies say the Crab Nebula is one of the most intricately structured and dynamic objects ever observed.

Life, if you get the Egg & Muffin Toaster, you'll have to let me know how well it works. Because I want it BAD, but I haven't been able to rationalize it yet (lack of counter space notwithstanding).
