    Alternative methods for chilling beverages have been around for a while now, for people who like their drinks cold but without the watering-down effects of ice cubes.

    Mexican bookstore chain Gandhi Bookstores has produced a commercial that shows books literally coming to life, and it’s likely to make even diehard illiterati members want to pick up a book and try to capture some of that magic for themselves. The ad slogan is “one book leads to another,” and it makes this principle […]

    Tortilla Record Developed, Played by Rapture Records (Video)

    Science-fiction writer Arthur C. Clarke has a famous quotation that goes like this: “Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic.” Now that I’ve seen a real, playable tortilla record developed by Rapture Records, I understand what Clarke meant better than I ever have.

    Did you know that American troops in Vietnam had a standard issue wristwatch as part of their array of equipment? It’s true, and surprisingly it didn’t constantly display that it was “Screw This O’Clock,” instead displaying the time accurately.

    Toothbrushes can understandably become hot spots for bacteria and other gross stuff you wouldn’t want to put in your mouth, but most people, if they’re conscious of this at all, opt to just replace their toothbrushes a few times a year rather than trying to clean them. That could be because toothbrush cleaners can be […]

    Hydro Hammock: A Hot Tub, Hammock, and More

    Inventor Benjamin H. Frederick has done something I wouldn’t have thought possible before today: He’s combined the hammock and the hot tub in a way that isn’t a soggy, impossible-to-sit-in mess.

    Donald Trump isn’t the only beauty pageant personality who’s been getting into trouble lately. If you don’t remember the name Katie Rees, she’s the winner of 2007’s Miss Nevada title, but who got the title pulled after some photos of her acting in a non-Miss-Nevada-like fashion surfaced on the internet.  And now, she’s in trouble […]

    #FreeTheNipple Activists Exploit Hilarious Instagram Loophole

    Earlier today I wrote up model Charlotte McKinney, who posted a few topless photos on Instagram only to delete them since they violate the photo app’s terms of service. This is part of a larger trend, though, made up of people justifiably fed up with Instagram’s sexual double standards, and the #FreeTheNipple warriors have found […]

    Key Lime Pie Oreos Now Available

    Remember a couple years ago when Beyoncé released a surprise album out of nowhere? The cookie equivalent of that is happening now in grocery stores across the country, with the release of Key Lime Pie Oreos. And somehow, unlike other specialty Oreo flavors, there wasn’t any pre-release hype for this version. The release of Key […]
