‘Space race dildos’ launched after Bezos flight

And other stories from the stranger side of life

Jeff Bezos

After Jeff Bezos successfully launched into space in a rocket described as “phallic” by some observers, an adult entertainment company has introduced a range of dildos inspired by the “Billionaire Space Race” between the Amazon founder, Richard Branson and Elon Musk. The range includes the Blue Orgasm, Space Sex and Galadick. “Go boldly into where no one’s gone before,” said CamSoda Vice President Daryn Parker. “Explore Uranus and maybe even have a close encounter of the pantless kind.”

Bezos ‘replaced by aliens during flight’

If that wasn’t strange enough, a conspiracy theory claims Jeff Bezos was replaced by aliens during the launch. The Amazon boss took off from a desert site in West Texas on board the New Shepard and later landed in the desert. However, one Twitter user wasn’t having any of it. “I’ll probably disappear after tweeting this but Bezos’ rocket trip was designed to replace him while in orbit with the lizard-alien doppelganger,” they wrote.

Dubai makes fake rain

Dubai is making its own fake rain amid scorching conditions. The project is being led by researchers at the University of Reading, one of whom told the BBC earlier this year that researchers are attempting to get the water drops to merge and stick when they receive an electrical pulse. When the drops merge and are big enough, they fall as rain.
