The latter is perhaps the worst because a hard-to-dry towel can turn musky pretty quick and bad smell, as some science tells us, more often than not, is associated with bacteria growth, and surely, no one wants to spread bacteria all over his or her body, right? Well, neither does Shane, who sets out to develop a bath towel that readily picks up water from your body and dries itself easily too.

Not-for-sale Razer Chroma Mug On eBay UK Gets Razer CEO’s Due Attention

Razer CEO Min-Liang Tan had specifically said that the Razer Chroma Mug is strictly a non sale item. It was an exclusive gift presented to partners and close friends with some set aside for loyal fans through a sweepstake or something of sort, but in this Internet age, non sale item doesn’t mean you won’t be able to get it, well, that’s if you are prepared to drop a cool 1,220 English pounds or more (about an insane $1,520!). As it appears, at least one partner of Razer or close friend is not appreciating the exclusivity bestowed on him or her because this person, referred to as eBay seller dezolator-uk, has put it up for auction on eBay.

Finally, Doomsday Shelters With Middle Class In Mind!

Since after 2012, there have been lesser talk about preparation for apocalypse, but looking today’s volatile international relations and domestic uncertainties, you’d be hard pressed not to pick up the topic once again. Then again, it is not by choice one wants to rest on his or her laurels; it is the price to prep for say, a nuclear fallout, that’s preventing an individual from doing so. The price for a fully-kitted, nuclear blast proof safe haven deep underground is prohibitive, thus making it a luxury average joe won’t even want to dream. But not all hopes are lost if you are not a multi-millionaire cos’ Vivos Group, the California-based company that builds and maintains fortified shelters for high net worth clienteles, has an affordable solution which it calls Vivos xPoint.

It’s ok. Just take a look at the 3D printed Archimedean Turd and if you kind of fancy it, then you have a fetish for decoration defecation. Don’t be ashamed, though and don’t make excuses like “because it looks like a perfectly laid pile of poop and it is an art.” Well, I got news for you. This ain’t art. It’s poop science, or more accurately, poop mathematics cos’ its geometry is, apparently, backed by geometric principles including the Archimedean spiral (r = a + bθ) and the Golden Ratio/Phi in triangles where a=1, b=√φ, and c = φ.
