Japan Breast Beautifying Hand On A Stick

This is the Oppai Taisou Hand, a $28 piece of plastic that's supposed to make your breasts look and feel better.  It it works by dragging back fat around and adding it to your tits. Thankfully, there's an even shiftier explanation:
"Shindo explains that a woman's breasts are strung up by ligaments, and if these ligaments don't get sufficient movement, the fats in the breast will start to settle back against the chest muscles, resulting in unshapely, or even sagging boobies.
Oppai Hagashi supposedly detaches the breast ligaments from the chest muscles and directs the fats back to where they belong, restoring shape, while Oppai Yurashi resets the tension in the ligaments holding up the breasts, thus regaining elasticity and perkiness. The massage also improves blood circulation, which promotes healthier, beautifully shaped breasts
.
You can found it on Rakuten Japan and Amazon Japan retailing for 3,066 yen (approximately US$26)

"There’s one vegetable at the Christmas dinner table that’s always bound to elicit strong and contrary opinions: brussels sprouts. Much like marmite, they seem to conjure up a ‘love it or hate it’ sentiment; however, if you fall into the latter camp, there may actually be a chemical and genetic reason why you can’t stand the taste.  "
