It’s safe to say that many people are unhappy with their noses. Especially since we’re constantly bombarded with cosmetically perfected versions on television and in the media.This straight-outta-Japan gadget aims to straighten crooked honkers everywhere. Available quite widely, it’s called (in self-explanatory fashion) the Beauty Lift High Nose. Not only does it cover half your face like some complex surgical device, it even has electric vibrations buzzing out of it to make your adenoids that much firmer. No word on whether you’ll actually see results, but if you’re willing to go the distance to get your hands on one, it currently retails at around 6,800 JPY (about $83).

China’s high-altitude Sichuan – Tibet Highway covers about 1,500 miles between Chengdu in the east and Lhasa (Tibet) in the west, offering the choice between the northern or southern route. Both options boast beautiful scenery, enormous mountain peaks, various cultural and historical attractions, and many famous rivers. Que’er Mountain pass, the highest point on the route, rises to over 20,000 feet.
Like many other roads that cut through mountains, the Sichuan – Tibet Highway is prone to landslides, falling rocks, and extreme weather conditions that can close roads for a month at a time. Add avalanches and altitude sickness to the lineup, and you could find yourself in rather unsafe driving conditions. It’s certainly a great route for sightseeing, but keep in mind that it will also add a good dose of intensity to your driving adventures.
