Doubled Walled Rocks Glasses For Keeping Your Booze Cool

November 16, 2018

These are the Double-Wall Insulated Rocks Glasses manufactured by Sun's Tea and available on Amazon. A set of two 9-ounce borosilicate rocks glasses will set you back $17, and keep your drinks cooler longer, without obstructing the view of your drink. Me? I don't really care what my drink looks like, because I know that, just like with people, it's what's on the inside that counts. In this case *shaking plastic cup* half a can of grape soda then vodka to the top.

Thanks to Josh J, who agrees there's nothing wrong with double fisting sippy cups.

Problem Solving: Dad Carries Daughter Like Shopping Bag After She Refuses To Walk

November 16, 2018

carrying-kid-like-shopping-bag.jpg

This is a short video of a father carrying his 2-year old daughter Juliette by the coat like a shopping bag after she laid in the driveway and refused to come inside after a trip to the grocery store. Children: this really makes me want to have some. Times sure have changed, haven't they? If I had done this as a kid my parents would have just left me out in the cold, and probably locked the door until after well after dark to teach me a lesson. "And what lesson would that be?" That the noises I hear at night that sound like coyotes are, in fact, coyotes.

Lazy Levels At Max: Sea Lion Just Rolls Back To Ocean After Chasing Away A Rival

November 16, 2018

This is a short video of a sea lion that, after spending all his energy chasing a rival male off his stretch of beach, just rolls back down to the water like a child down a grassy hill. Or like me down the stairs to my parents' basement to play video games and avoid my extended family after having too much to eat at Thanksgiving. Unlike mine though, this sea lion's trip didn't end with a hole in the wall and an uncle driving it to the veterinarian.

It Happens: Volunteer Gets Flogged In Head During Fire-Spinning Performance

November 16, 2018

This is a video from a Koh Phangnan, Thailand beach of a volunteer who gets hit in the head during a fire-spinning performance. In his own words while I stand on my desk and demand volunteers for a trust fall:

"I was visiting Thailand a couple weeks ago and saw a fire spinner on the beach, we walked down to where he was performing and started watching. My girlfriend was the first volunteer, she went, everything was all fine and then it was my turn. He says stand straight, don't move. I didn't move. He still managed to hit me in the head with a fire whip. I think I took it like a champ though."

'I think I took it like a champ though.' Haha, that's the story of my life, at least until somebody shows me a phone video of the thing I thought I took like a champ and you can hear me screaming and crying.

Keep going for the whole video while I reminisce about the first time I got hit with a fire whip. Good times, one hell of an orgy.

'Pokemon Grandpa' Has Nine Phones Mounted To His Bike's Handlebars For Playing Pokemon GO

November 16, 2018

This is a video highlighting Taiwan's 'Pokemon Grandpa', 70-year old fengshui master Chen San-yuan, who travels around town with nine smartphones mounted to his bike's handlebars for playing Pokemon GO. Chen estimates "his rig cost about $4,000 and he spends another $300/month on virtual currency to help him level up in the game." Now that is some serious dedication. I don't think I've ever been so dedicated to anything in my life except fostering a healthy, communicative relationship with my significant other. *girlfriend calls, sends straight to voicemail again* Sorry, what were we just talking about?

Keep going for the video.

Oh Wow: Guy Performs 29 Gainers In A Row

November 16, 2018

This is a video of a guy performing 29 gainers down the a pleasant looking lane without stopping. For reference, there's no doubt I would have fallen on my neck and paralyzed myself about halfway through the first one. He just keeps going. Also, I'm not 100% positive he actually does 29 since the video was skipping when I was counting because my computer was built in the 90's. It's probably time to upgrade my video card. "It's probably time to throw that computer out your office windows." Windows, LOL. I'm still running '95.

World's First Electric Motorcycle That Was Entirely 3-D Printed Except For Electrical Components (Including Rims And Tires)

November 16, 2018

3d-printed-electric-motorcycle.jpg


Following the successful creation of the world's first 3-D printed airless bicycle tires using their new PRO FLEX TPU (thermoplastic polyurethane) based flexible filament, industrial 3-D printer manufacturer BigRep decided to print an entire electronic motorcycle, the NERA E-Bike. This is that bike. The one in the corner by the copier? That's my bike. "Sick streamers and spokey dokes." I keep it oldschool.

All Nerabike parts including tires, rims, frame, fork and even the seat were 3D printed on the BigRep ONE.


"The NERA combines several innovations developed by NOWLAB, such as the airless tire, functional integration and embedded sensor technology" explained [NOWLAB Managing Director Daniel] Büning. "This bike and our other prototypes push the limits of engineering creativity and promise to reshape additive manufacturing technology as we know it."

*shrug* I'd ride it. And probably right into the back of a U-Haul pretending I was Knight Rider or the car from Spy Hunter. "Dare to dream, GW." Oh I do. Will I get an oil slick upgrade?! Hopefully. Will I break somebody's bedroom set instead? Probably.

Keep going for a video of the bike in action.
