Old Spice is freshening up its much-praised “Smell Like a Man, Man” campaign with a new spokesman for markets outside America. Isaiah Mustafa will remain the main man. Nobody panic.

“Dude! That ride is totally killer!”
As part of his thesis work at the Royal College of Art in London, PhD candidate Julijonas Urbonas designed the “Euthanasia Coaster” that will kill its riders with a series of brain-scrambling loops: “a hypothetic euthanasia machine in the form of a roller coaster, engineered to humanely — with elegance and euphoria — take the life of a human being. Riding the coaster’s track, the rider is subjected to a series of intensive motion elements that induce various unique experiences: from euphoria to thrill, and from tunnel vision to loss of consciousness, and, eventually, death.”

I wonder if theme parks would offer a seniors discount?

On the bright side… …. …. there is no bright side. Well, except for this graph.
