TimesOnline can kiss my ass before I'll let them set a cookie. I don't know why but they can!

That is mad cool. Adidas sounds a tad pissed they didn't get first dibs to make the soccer rubber. And what a mind this guy has! Though I want a demonstration of his hotel mini-bar software.

Those look nasty for getting kicked in the ankle by! If the opposing team is wearing those bad boys, I'm not even thinking about my ankles, I'm worrying about the thickness of my cup.

Maybe I'm looking at the pic the wrong way but that looks like pubic hair up where you should be putting your foot in. Which reminds me, wasn't the first Nike shoe nicknamed the Vagina? It looks like hell on the outside but feels like heaven on the inside.
