    Remember Ukrainian leather-worker Bob Basset's badass leather dragon backpack from 2007? That was many moons ago. I can't believe I'm still alive. I also can't believe I remember writing a post from 2007. Maybe my brain isn't as dead as my doctor thinks. So it turns out Bo... / Continue →

    This is DevinSuperTramp's latest extreme sports video of barefoot water skiing behind an amphibious plane. Plus a couple of the guys actually do pushups ON THE WATER. I don't really want to get into the laws of physics involved with that, but I assume it breaks them. Have I ... / Continue →

    This is Angela C's tattoo written in Gallifreyan, the language of the Time Lords. Their language is cool because the letters and words form what appear to be little planets on some intergalactic treasure map. The tattoo allegedly reads, "Against all odds I will Rise, Against ... / Continue →
