Boobquake: A Group Trying to Prove that Boobs Don't Cause Earthquakes

Boobquake: A Group Trying to Prove that Boobs Don't Cause Earthquakes
An Iranian cleric bizarrely claimed that women in sexy clothes cause earthquakes, so thousands of ladies in Facebook's "Boobquake" campaign decided to create a group to prove him wrong.

Iran is one of the world's most earthquake-prone countries, but one cleric's explanation for the tremors left a lot of people scratching their heads. Hojatoleslam Kazem Sedighi said, "Many women who do not dress modestly… lead young men astray, corrupt their chastity and spread adultery in society, which (consequently) increases earthquakes."

In order to prove him wrong, over 30,000 women have joined a Facebook group called Boobquake. It was started by Jennifer McCreight, who wants to test the cleric's claim scientifically by getting thousands of women to show off their cleavage to see if any tectonic movements follow.

Benjyo Soujer: A Japanese Group that Meets to Clean Public Toilets

Benjyo Soujer: A Japanese Group that  Meets  to Clean Public Toilets
Cleaning public toilets is considered a social activity by some Good Samaritans in Japan. A group that was started through Facebook meets once a week to disinfect, scrub, and bond in the bathroom.

The group, called Benjyo Soujer, has 35 members who get together every Sunday morning, regardless of the weather, to sanitize public toilets around Tokyo, disinfecting urinals and sinks. The group's name is a combination of the Japanese words for "lavatory" and "cleaner" and the English word for "soldier."

Group members say the cleaning ritual is a way to bond as a community and cleanse the soul at the same time. Along those lines, and this may not make sense to everybody, members are encouraged to clean the toilets with their bare hands.

Benjyo Soujer's leader, Masayuki Magome, says the practice of cleaning with bare hands is similar to a practice by Buddhist monks seeking "peace of heart." It takes the group about an hour and a half to finish, and then they are on to another public restroom the following weekend. (Source)

For the Love of God -- Don't Let Parents Join Facebook

For the Love of God -- Don't Let Parents Join Facebook
In 2009, the Facebook group entitled "For the love of god -- don't let parents join Facebook" had 5,819 high school and college-aged members who wanted to stop the growing number of parents who were joining Facebook to "spy" on them.

Many Facebook users know that employers, teachers, and admissions officers at universities use Facebook to check up on potential employees or students, but the dramatic increase in the number of parents using Facebook seemed to disturb many younger users more than the presence of any other demographic.

The group now has only 30 members because, well, parents have conquered the Facebook world. (Source | Via)

Let's face it, taxidermy is one of the more unconventional art forms even at its best. A Facebook group called "Badly Stuffed Animals" has been set up to celebrate the more spectacular instances of pets and other animal companions that have ceased to be, expired and gone to meet their maker, kicked the bucket, shuffled off their mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the choir invisible… and other assorted quotes from Monty Python's dead parrot sketch.

Nearly 11,000 users have subscribed to the unusual fan page, which features some truly bizarre images. (Source | Via)
