    This is the Viking ship fire pit available from Etsy seller ImagineMetalArt. It costs $400, which is a little bit (technically a lot of bit) out of my fire pit budget at the moment. The ship measures approximately 40-inches long and 16-inches wide, so basically imagine my pen... / Continue →

    This is the 80's style music video for David Hasselhoff's new song 'True Survivor', the theme to the crowdfunded film 'Kung Fury'. The song is pretty awful, but the music video -- the music video was decent. It's got everything: dinosaurs, fire, sick graphics, more fire, futu... / Continue →

    The XM42 is allegedly the world's first commercially available handheld flamethrower. Is that true? No clue, I've never been in the market for a flamethrower before. Jk jk, I have never NOT been in the market for a flamethrower. I have dozens. I basically sleep on a pile o... / Continue →
