These are Digigrade leg extensions. They are made of steel and add 14 inches of height to the wearer. But these are not ordinary stilts; they give a person the uncanny and graceful appearance of an animal. It is really cool! The movement of the legs is genuinely graceful and naturalistic. It is a great deal of fun being so much taller.

(Yes, it’s safe for work). It’s a good thing they label it as parody in the beginning lest somebody confuses it with the real thing.
What’s something you do that annoys your significant other?
I find it impossible to sit down and watch tv without doing something else like surfing the net, balancing a checkbook, practice the cello… It drives Mrs. C nuts that I can’t just sit still and watch a movie without having to do something else while watching.
JERUSALEM (AP) â€” The outbreak of swine flu should be renamed “Mexican” influenza in deference to Muslim and Jewish sensitivities over pork, said an Israeli health official Monday.
Deputy Health Minister Yakov Litzman said the reference to pigs is offensive to both religions and “we should call this Mexican flu and not swine flu,” he told a news conference at a hospital in central Israel.
Both Judaism and Islam consider pigs unclean and forbid the eating of pork products.
Scientists are unsure where the new swine flu virus originally emerged, though it was identifed first in the United States. They say there is nothing about the virus that makes it “Mexican” and worry such a label would be stigmatizing.
I need to google this Vietnam thing and see how it turned out.
