    This is the Trilogy portable treehouse available from Tentsile (previously: their other hanging hammock tents). It costs $1,450 and just made it to number three on my birthday wishlist behind time machine and jetpack. The biggest portable treehouse set up on the market: Thi... / Continue →

    Note: Solid F-bomb at 0:19. Crank up the volume! This is a short video of a guy cutting down a massive tree limb when the Ent it belongs to decides enough is enough and wacks him off his ladder. Dude survived the fall fine though, so you don't have to feel bad about having j... / Continue →
