Medieval Skull With Horns Mug 1

If you need to make a statement at work, or your next party, this is the mug that says IDGAF. Remember the Office Space movie where the fed up dude cleans a fish at his desk? Well this mug isn’t that gangsta but it certainly sends a message.  Here is the fish cleaning scene for reference.

This Medieval Mug is 5.11 inches tall and 7.48 inches wide and can hold 450 Ml (15 Oz). It is made of food grade stainless steel and resin. It doesn’t matter if you are drinking coffee or beer out if this bad boy, it certainly will trump (ouch, no pun intended) the other mugs in the room. Yours for just $23 here. (more…)

percentage-of-air-in-chip-bags-1

Consider this a PSA for your next visit to the supermarket to buy chips. What a racket. One of my favorites, Cheetos, are shipped with 59% of the bag full of air. I realize some of this air is important to protect the delicate chips, but I think they might be taking some liberties here. Especially Pringles which come in a hard can.

Read on for the full infographic which is loaded with some mind bending info. Thanks to the folks at Kitchen Cabinet Kings for this water displacement test on all of these chips. (more…)

Trying to hang multiple framed pictures together on a wall sucks. Trying to line them up perfectly is a bit maddening. I tend to prefer eyeballing them instead of measuring. With that said, trying to line up a new nail with the frame hanger is tougher than you would think. Enter this easy hanger gadget. This simple, and inexpensive ($8), gadget makes placing the hole in the right place every time. You simply  use the hook on the back of the gadget, position the picture on the wall where you want it, remove the picture and press the...

Sure, the rear haunch looks like a 2017 Camaro but that doesn’t take anything away from this new Aston Martin. The Aston Martin DBS Superleggera is wrapped in carbon fiber bits and makes more downforce than any other production Aston, all with out a spoiler.

Tesla Autopilot Buddy

This magnetic gadget tricks the Tesla Autopilot system in to thinking that the driver has their hands on the wheel. Why would you want to do this? Well, the short answer is so that you can let the Tesla do the driving without having the autopilot system shutoff when your hands aren’t on the steering wheel. No need to over think this one, it is a bad idea. I hope this crafty inventor has a good legal team.

If you re still sold on this overpriced gadget ($199) head on over to the manufacturers website. Video of this device in action after the break. (more…)

As much as I love riding motorcycles, I also enjoy hopping on a scooter from time-to-time. There is something about the simplicity of scooters – no gears, easy braking, and the uncomplicated dash. What could make a scooter better? Electricity of course. This modern take on the Vespa styling is from Bolt Mobility and is known as the AppScooter. Strange name. The all-electric AppScooter has an impressive range of 248 miles. The dash is a giant 7″ LCD touchscreen that integrates with an iPhone or Android phone. This screen offers...

Worth a shot anyways. The Kirkland Signature Triple Blade Razors come with a lubricating strip, 3 precision German blades, a flexible swivel head, and a chrome polished handle with non-slip grip.

Ammo cans are great for storing stuff (not just ammo). Great for the garage, shop, back of the truck or UTV, heck… even handy in the kitchen. The metal ammo cans tend to look a bit too military for some folks, and they tend to rust a bit. Time for an upgrade. Read on for more details… (more…)
