From the Cincinatti Inquirer: A clerk at the Apple Store in Kenwood Towne Centre kept a cool head when a customer reportedly took his frustration with his iPhone too far. Hamilton County sheriff’s deputies say Donald Goodrich, 38, took his phone into the store and told the clerk, “I’m so mad I could pop a […]
CrackShot’s Snakeguardz are $70 gaiters made from tough, 1000-Denier nylon. They not only keep snakes from slithering up your pant legs, but prevent bites. Cool stuff, but even cooler is the fact Ben Meadows says the gaiters are “strong enough to stop a 12-gauge shotgun blast at 20 yards.” I would hate to be the […]

Here’s viral marketing I can get behind: The people at ManaPotions.com took time from styling their hair to modify a NERF chaingun to shoot 500 rounds per minute. They write: We gave 4 times the standard voltage to one of those Nerf Vulcan guns and managed to get it to fire as fast as a […]
Alexander Reh’s Fully Loaded Chair is composed of a solid steel frame stuffed to the bore with 12-gauge shotgun shells. I like the thoughtful design: notice that the payload points away from the sitter. You can be confident in haphazardly flinging yourself into its ensconcement.
