This Summer’s Must-Have Gadgets

Everyone can use a little help battling what can be almost unbearable summer heat, and everything that goes along with it, so here are a few must have gadgets to get through the summer.

Celebs That Let Themselves Go

Alley

  Ok, it's true. Nobody looks the same way they did when they're 40 versus when they were 20. And it just gets worse the older we get. Trust us, we understand that.

Gunpowder and Idiots Don’t Mix

OK, so we're not ones to judge, but this guy is a schmuck.  First off, playing around with unknown amounts of highly explosive materials is probably a bad idea to begin with.  Second, doing it in your own kitchen is even worse.  Good thing we don't have to worry about this guy getting away with this...his wife is going to kill him.  Check out the video below.

Opinion: GTO or 442?

There are some that consider the Pontiac GTO, or Goat, to be the first real muscle car while others claim that honor goes to the Oldsmobile Cutlass 442. Let’s take a look at both: When driving the Cutlass 442 you were in no way expected to sacrifice any comfort in order to have a snarling V8 under your hood. Beginning with the introduction in 1964 as an option package on the F-85, those three little numbers pretty much … [Read more...]

Green Bay Wins, Cheerleaders Lose Super Bowl XLV

Packers Cheerleaders

If you were included in the estimated 56% of the United States that watched Super Bowl XLV, you most likely saw a botched national anthem, a hard fought contest between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the victorious Green Bay Packers, and a bunch of commercials that you either loved or hated.  Can you think of something you didn't see?
