Teabags are a thing of the past thanks to a company that has created tea in an aerosol can.

YumCha have eradicated the need for 'soggy teabags' by creating a product called No More Tea Bags, which works by squirting foam from the can into a mug and then adding boiling water.

Explaining their product, YumCha said: "Like all good ideas, we came up with No More Tea Bags over a nice brew. We thought there's got to be a better way to make tea than with those soggy old teabags ... . We brew proper leaf tea for the perfect amount of time so you don't have to, and it's never under-brewed or stewed. All you do is add hot water. You can easily control the strength, it only takes two ticks and it's delicious." And it doesn't look like it's just a hoax either, as eagle-eyed shoppers have spotted the product on the shelves in the convenience store chain Spar.

A bearded woman feels 'sexier' with facial hair.

Harnaam Kaur, 24, has entered the Guinness World Records as the youngest female with a full beard, and she has revealed that she feels more 'feminine when sporting her six-inch beard. She told the Mirror Online: "I would never ever go back now and remove my facial hair because it's the way God made me and I'm happy with the way I am. I feel more feminine, more sexy and I think I look it, too. I've learned to love myself for who I am, nothing can shake me now." In March, she became the first woman with a beard to walk on the runway at London Fashion Week. She said that receiving the world record was "absolutely humbling" and hoped that the news would empower women and give them the confidence to look however they want to.

A man who passed away recently left his family 60 large-breasted mannequins.

Mike Martin collected the mannequins as a hobby and referred to them as his "glamour girls". Each one of the 60 dolls has an excessively large chest, and Mike augmented the chest of each one by using Bondo putty. His daughter Lisa Erspamer told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel newspaper: "If you've seen them, obviously you can tell he was very into big-busted women, to say the least. My mum tolerated it. But by no stretch of the imagination did she like it." The figures went to an auction that ended last Thursday. The head of the Beloit auction house said: "He's enlarged some of the breasts on some of them, 'accentuated' is the word we use in the ad. He accentuated all the mannequins in some way. It's no different than collecting anything else. I don't think it's any different than collecting Thunderbirds or collecting bicycles."

A man has robbed a bank at gunpoint because he didn't want to spend time with his wife.

Larry Ripple, 70, took almost $3,000 from a bank in Kansas after telling his wife he'd rather be in jail than at home during an argument. After he stole the money, Larry took a seat in the lobby instead of fleeing, and told a security guard "I'm the man you're looking for" before the guard called the FBI. FBI Special Agent Eric R. Beltz said: "[Larry] and his wife had an argument at home and [he] no longer wanted to be in the situation. Ripple wrote out his demand note in front of his wife, and told her he'd rather be in jail than at home. Ripple then walked to the bank and robbed it."
