YOUR PENIS VS HER DILDO.

How long is the longest dildo, and how short is the shortest dipstick? We pit her favorite battery-operated toys with seasoned manoy. Someone else has to decide who wins, through…

DIMENSIONS

DILDO

Two things pretend-penises don’t cover in the length and girth departments: 1. They don’t have optional flaccid modes; 2. And—not counting dildos packaged as “first timer” toys (5.5” by 1.5”)—they don’t make them small. On average, they’re a clean 6 to 8 inches (excluding grip/suction base), and at their commercially available longest, can run the stretch of 11.5 to 12 inches with 1.5-to 2.5-inch girths (long whilst unproportional

Your Parents Are Racist. What About You?

You’d think it would take an awful lot to threaten a 19-year-long friendship, but for Johannesburg assistant events coordinator Balelwa*, 24, and her copywriter BFF and flatmate, Busi, 25, it took just a few words from Busi in defence of the new guy in her life. Balelwa didn’t trust him. Just as the friends always had, she voiced her misgivings. And Busi responded: ‘You don’t trust him because he’s coloured.’

ME? PREJUDICED? NEVER!

‘She basically called me a racist!’ recalls Balelwa. ‘She knows I went to inter-racial schools. After school I took a gap year with her, and I dated

Why havent humans visited any other planets?

Sarah Andrews

Technically, we haven’t had any manned missions to any planets yet. The outer planets, with their high pressures and gaseous compositions that lack a solid surface are unlikely to be entered by humans. Meanwhile the inner planets are, in general, too hostile for us to land on due to their proximity to the Sun – Mercury and Venus are too hot and the pressure on Venus much too high. Only Mars seems to be really within reach and, as a result, this planet has been chosen as something of a happy medium.

Information gathered by previous and current

Whats the weather like on the other planets?

Alex Schmetkov

Mostly very different to what it’s like on Earth! The hottest and coldest places on Earth are in Death Valley, California and Vostok Station, Antarctica, which have official records of 56.7 degrees Celsius (134 degrees Fahrenheit) and -89.2 degrees Celsius (-128.6 degrees Fahrenheit) respectively. But it gets way more extreme in other parts of the Solar System.

Martian air is very thin, less than one hundredth of the density of Earth’s atmosphere, and so it can experience wild swings in temperature during a day, from highs of 26 degrees Celsius (80 degrees Fahrenheit) to lows of -129 degrees

What Next?

Mike Spick gazes into his crystal ball to look at the RAF’s next quarter of a century.

THE ROYAL AIR FORCE celebrated its 75th anniversary on April 1. The past 25 years have been packed with incident — what will the next 25 years hold? Crystal gazing is a perilous occupation at the best of times. All we can state with any certainty is that mankind has a propensity for armed conflict, and that the lessons of the past can often, but not always, be applied to the future. In many ways, the early 1920s were similar to the present

Were All Photographers. Are We All Photographers?

Once Google Glass takes off, people may utter, “Glass, take a picture,” more often than talk to each other. It is already happening, come to think of it. Pictures are serving the role of conversations… I went to this cafe. I am at a party I am stupid. Instead of narrating such stories with a touch of drama, we Instagram our lives straight into everyone’s timeline. Photography was always a language. But earlier, it was used to make a statement. Now there are statements, with a lot of chatter and small talk in between. So considering the millions of stray

Under other flags

Despite its proven track record, ease of maintenance and its reliable Hercules engines, what could have been a vibrant export market for Beaufighters failed to materialise. Only three countries directly opted for the type, while a third acquired a handful through a clandestine route. Two of these nations used them in anger.

During the war, four Commonwealth air forces flew ‘Beaus’: Australia (five squadrons in the Pacific, two in the UK), Canada (four in the UK), New Zealand (two in the UK) and South Africa (two in the Middle East). As charted in the feature Whispering Death, Australia also built

Triumph tiger explorer

Like most modern Triumphs, the defining characteristic of the Explorer is its character-rich inline-triple powerplant. This latest-generation, 1215cc triple, a version of which also powers the Trophy SE sport-tourer, seems tailor-made for adventure touring, producing a claimed 135 horsepower and 89 lb.-ft. of torque. Ride-by-wire throttle activation permits multi-mode traction control—including a setting that allows a slight amount of wheel spin for off-road use—though, unlike many of the other bikes, these settings are not easy to change on the fly.

With a claimed curb weight of 570 pounds, the Explorer is no lightweight, and the inline-triple raises the center of

THE OTHER SIDE OF MACAU

From fusion cuisine to spectacular performances to a colorful blend of history, the peninsula has more than one way to hit the jackpot.

LOCATED ON THE SOUTHEAST coast of mainland China and with a history that includes centuries as a Portuguese outpost, Macau is a curious blend of cultures. Now though it is probably best known for its glitzy Las Vegas-like casino scene and grand hotel complexes including the Sheraton Macao Hotel (the largest Sheraton in the world) and the Conrad Macao. And the boom doesn’t seem to be ending soon, new projects planned for the near future include the

The other Cold War

While everyone focused on the US-USSR power struggle, an even more bitter conflict was playing out between the USSR and China

On 2 March 1969, the Strategic Missile Forces went to high alert — their nuclear warheads ready to be loosed at targets 1,600 kilometres (1,000 miles) away in less than 15 minutes. On the banks of a frozen river, opposing soldiers of two nuclear powers bled to death in the snow, as a cold war that Kennedy didn’t fight and Reagan wouldn’t win turned hot.

This wasn’t East versus West; this was East versus Far East — a murderous
