Is She Cheating on You?

Ah, the cuckold. Last to hear about his wife’s indiscretions but first to be humiliated by his unfortunate title, the cuckold is the saddest of the male archetypes, the poor sap who “wears the horns” that everyone (but him) can see to the tune of great dishonor and endless heartache. Roughly translated, this means that it sucks to be cheated on, and as if the betrayal itself isn& …

Perfect Luxury Ice Cubes

The ice in your freezer is ludicrous. It’s contaminated, it’s misshapen, and it’s ruining your drinks. You might not even realize it, but it’s true. If you’ve never had luxury ice, though, your ignorance is excusable. Just what is luxury ice, exactly? It’s, apparently, nothing new. According to luxury ice makers Névé (pronounced ney-vey), it’s a practice that’s been around for ages… “...it har …

How to Have a Vegetarian Thanksgiving

Whether you’ve recently had a Jonathan Safran Foer moment or you’re just trying to impress that cute vegan you keep running into at the co-op, deciding to go turkey-free on Turkey Day is no longer a dirty-hippie move that forces you to eat sad meat substitutes and wonder about your life choices. In fact, with the recent backlash against industrial meat processing, it’s quite the …

How to Sail Around the World

If you think sailing around the world isn't easy, consider this – this year alone the record for youngest person to circumnavigate the world alone was set, twice, by teenagers. Also, an even younger sailor, Jessica Watson of Australia, is about 2,500 nautical miles into a trip that, when and if she completes, will make her the youngest, solo around-the-world sailor. She is 16. It used to req …

Don’t be Alarmed

What’s the point of having an LED digital clock next to your bed when you have to lift your head off your pillow to see what time it is? Once your head is off that pillow, you’re AWAKE, and you'll have a tough time falling back asleep.The whole point of sleeping is to get rest, and if you’re using precious strength to continuously look at clocks, then you’re not going to wa …

Shake it Up

Who doesn’t love a snowglobe? It probably stems from being a kid, where anything you were actually encouraged to pick up and shake was a lot more fun than things you were told not to touch. But that’s the thing: snow globes are for kids.You might as well put a G.I Joe or slinky on your desk…okay, those would be awesome, too, but you might be inaccurately judged by other people. …

How many Thanksgivings in a row can you eat the same old dry roasted turkey without snapping?It’s about time you go out on a limb and try something new to spice things up, don‘t you think?

Cut on Credit

You should never leave your house without a fork and spoon. You never know when you’ll happen upon some delicious food item that requires more than fingers to eat. But can you going to do? Carry it in your back pocket?That would be a pain in your ass in more ways than one. Unless you have the new Credit Card Cutlery from A+R Designs. Brilliantly designed, the plastic fork and spoon bend …

Making a Perfect Turducken

If you don’t what a turducken is, you’re in for a gastrointestinal experience that can boarder on the sublime, but easily cross into a purgatory of food-coma. It is, perhaps, the ultimate meat-atarian option when it comes to filling your Thanksgiving table. No mere turkey, the turducken is a stuffed chicken, inside a stuffed duck inside a stuffed turkey. The etymology of the name, o …

22 Cufflinks for Techies

Not a whole lot of exposition to offer here. If you’re under 30, there’s a solid chance you work online. If you’re under 60, you use a computer ever day. If you’re 90, you’re not reading this post, and if you are, you don’t give a crap. That’s okay. Old guys get some wiggle room. But for the rest of us, here’s ____ geeky cufflinks to take some of the edge off that monkey suit you’re wearing to …

Keep Your Metabolism Burning

Not all of us are blessed with bodies like David Beckham. Furthermore, many of us can’t find the time to fling ourselves across a soccer field in search of an improved set of muscles, like David Beckham. Still, don’t we deserve some dietary success? Just because we inherited Aunt Linda’s thick thighs and Uncle Danny’s cankles does not mean we’re doomed to wear sweatsh …

Least Safe Vehicle of The Year

Forget about the safest cares of 2010. The Frictionator Monster Jet Truck is, believe it or not, street legal. This has less to do with its relative safety or road worthiness (both clearly rock bottom) and more to do with the fact that lawmakers didn’t really anticipate rocket-powered monster trucks (or rocket powered scooters, or rocket powered VW Bugs), and there are no laws forb …

Cologne Based on Michael Jacksons DNA

This has got to be one of the must interesting, morbid, unique, and darkly enticing things we’ve seen online lately. And that’s saying something. My DNA Fragrance is a company that concocts perfumes and colognes based on the DNA of a particular human. Creepy? A little. But not as creepy as it seems at first blush. Your DNA isn’t responsible for your scent directly. That is, …

But, if you watched this as a kid, you’ve probably wondered… just how bad does it smell? And how warm is it inside a Tauntaun? And is it even comfortable to sleep in? …

Everything You Don’t Know About Whiskey

When it comes to liquor, whisky could not be closer linked to masculinity, whether refined or roughian. It is the drink of both the cowboy and the classic movie star, the most admired acquired taste. But beyond the short rock glass and infamous brands, the common man’s Jack Daniels, there may be a mysterious thing or two about whisky worthwhile to discover. After all, the man who drinks whisky is …
