pizzacondomlead-360x191Just when we thought we’d seen it all, a new brand of pizza-inspired condoms have hit the market.

Russian designer Marina Malygina created a rubber for people who like sex and food equally. The condoms, which are called “Seriax,” come in a miniature-sized pizza box. Inside is a condom wrapped to look like a pepperoni pie.

Malygina says the idea came from an episode of Friends where Joey is asked the impossible question: If given one option, do you choose food or sex? The answer is obviously both.

34440_Google_Gay_Logo_WideIssue appeared to be isolated to translating words relating to homosexuality

Google Inc. (GOOG) came under fire from LBGT (lesbian, bisexual, gay, and transgender) petition site AllOut.org, over flaws in its Translator Service, which led to translations to some languages yielding homophobic slurs.  Google has now fixed the issue and apologized for its mistake.

The controversy came after people noticed that when translating neutral words in foreign languages pertaining to homosexuality, the English translations at times suggested English colloquialisms that are commonly considered homophobic slurs among native speakers.  This controversial vernacular was also peculiar as searches for neutral foreign equivalents racial terms (e.g. words which would translate to “Asian”, “White” or “Black”) or gender terms (e.g. words that would translate to “female”) did not display racist or sexist slang.

Some of the translations seemed to be especially offensive for languages spoken in regions with active homophobia, such as Russia.  “???”, for example — a Russian word which means “gay” — offered some pretty wild suggestions. The seemingly offensive translations were concerning, given that over 500 million people worldwide regularly use Google Translate.  In total a petition about the issue attracted 51,634 signatures, just slightly short of the goal of 60,000 signatures. – See more at: http://www.dailytech.com/Google+Fixes+Homophobic+Bug+in+its+Translator/article37108.htm#sthash.jIBw9CRa.dpuf
