    Brass knuckles: if you use them in a fist fight it's cheating and I will stab you because if you're going to cheat I'm going to cheat even worse. The first rule of fighting is if you break a rule there are no rules anymore. Trust me, I used to do MMA. No I didn't, but I did ... / Continue →

    This is the Hoptimus Prime seasonal beer from Robinson Brewery. It has absolutely nothing to do with Transformers except the punny name and a blurb about how the flavor transforms as all the ingredients combine. I wish I'd known that before buying a case of the stuff hoping t... / Continue →

    Man, remember back in the original cartoon when Optimus Prime was just a sweet looking tractor trailer and didn't need a stupid looking flame paint job? Plus when he transformed you could still make out his truck pieces and he didn't look like he was made from a million shards... / Continue →
