Weather-flavored toothpaste machine= totally necessary

Scientists at MIT have developed a computerized toothpaste dispenser that mixes a different tasting toothpaste in accordance with the day's weather.

"The toothpaste is called "Tastes Like Rain." A little computer in the dispenser checks the Internet for the day's weather, and mixes together several different flavors of toothpaste accordingly. If it's going to be warmer than yesterday, you get a higher proportion of cinnamon toothpaste, and if it's going to be cooler, you get more mint. A blue stripe means it's going to rain."

Seriously, MIT?! Is this really what the brightest scientific minds in our country should be focusing on? How about curing cancer, solving world hunger, or inventing a synthetic life form that can wash dishes and perform a flawless pedicure?! I mean, really!

That said, I guess that it is actually kind of useful. I mean, it's not like you can get the weather forecast on your television, radio, watch, cell phone, i-pad, gaming system, or by simply LOOKING OUTSIDE!


  1. Oh, come on. Geeks are allowed to have fun sometimes. Isn't that right, princess?

  2. I suppose you are right, just seems like a ridiculous thing to invent. lol

  3. I agree...we could be doing muuuuch better, more useful things with technology. It is sad that culture has digressed to making such inane, trivial things.

  4. I know, right? It's like, lets take the most brilliant medical minds on the planet, and are they focusing on curing cancer or aids? nope, they are probably working for some major pharmaceutical conglomerate, trying to make a pill that enhances a man's erection. super. Good priorities, guys! lol

  5. Yep. and there are tons of foods that are natural aphrodisiacs...people think they need a pill for everything. it's so sad. haha

  6. That is crazy!!! lol i want 1!!!!

  7. EWWWW, who wants cinnamon in their toothpaste. This sucks. Also, seems a bit bulky for the bathroom counter.
