Romper For Grown Up Men Is Thing Because, 2017

There are more than six months to go before 2017 ends and when it does (end), it will be remembered for quite a few things, most notably Trump being the Tweet-happy POTUS and also RompHim. Wait, what? What’s RompHim, you asked? Well, think men, then think onesies, and what you get would be RompHim. Yup. That’s right. RompHim is rompers for grown up men. It kind of invites the ewwww reaction, but it is also kind of a thing now, and if the Kickstarter community’s response is anything to go by, apparently, men loved it. Ok. Maybe among the 2,400 plus backers, there are some women who ordered it for their male friends. I mean, who knows, right? It’s 2017, isn’t it? So, anything is possible, including onesies for men. Folks, we have just reached the epitome of fashion design and damn, we are only at 2017, not 3030! Mankind sure is advancing fast! Continue reading Romper For Grown Up Men Is Thing Because, 2017

Elysium Star II Mission Is Essentially Space Travel For The Dead

The ticket for the near future space travel is exorbitant, but that does not mean it will be out-of-reach, or at least it won’t be out-of-reach for the dead because a California-based company, Elysium Space, is providing a service that will see the remains of a loved one rocketing to celestial level, like quite literally. In other words, Elysium Space is a space-age funeral service of sort. The company calls it a memorial spaceflight and so, it is not quite a funeral, but really, as the name implies, a memorial service that offers a loved one who have passed on a chance to travel to space.

Lo and Behold! You Can Soon Own An Inflatable Version Of Moe’s Tavern!

Lo and behold! You can soon own Springfield’s most recognizable (and the only) watering hole, Moe’s Tavern. I know right? It is like a dream come true for any The Simpsons fan. The coolest part about this real-life Inflatable Moe’s Tavern is, you need no structure license or whatever licenses your local government insists that you should have because it is an inflatable structure. Despite it being an inflatable ‘structure’, it is totally capable of providing you and your fellow Springfielder-wannabes a roomy 524 square feet (49 sq.m) space to mingle and hit up some fresh-off-the-tap crisp, cold brew. And at 11.4 feet (3.5 m) tall, it has plenty of height room to spare too. Continue reading Lo and Behold! You Can Soon Own An Inflatable Version Of Moe’s Tavern!

Chanel Is Selling $2K Boomerang. Is Fashion Apocalypse Upon Us?

Seriously. Can someone point out what’s wrong with the creativity industry? In particular, the fashion design industry? Because I don’t get where the designers have gotten the creativity juice, or the lack thereof, from. First, consumers were hit up with clear knee jeans, followed by a pair of completely clear jeans. And oh, let’s not forget about the hilarious dirty work-saving, pre-muddied denim too. Just when you thought those are about as ridiculous as fashion sense can get, you realized there’s designer bag that apparently took inspiration from cheap black and blue bags commonly used in Asia and even more recently, one that looks like a 99 cents tote bag.

Here Are Some Pretty Crazy Stuff Airport Security Have Found

Air travel, while convenient, is a risky business. On one hand, travelers are at the mercy of pilots competency, weather threats, and hardware issues and on the other hand, there are mentally unsound fellow travelers and terrorists to worry about. While other bodies worked to improved on the safety aspect of the former, the responsibility of addressing the latter rest squarely on the shoulders of the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) of the various airports. I know many travelers view TSA as more of a hassle than good. But hey, if the hassle can bump up the safety aspect with regards to dangerous materials onboard, we are fine by the hassle.

The Internet Shows You What You Can Do With The Iconic Ikea Tote Bag

I am sure you have heard about the hilarity that ensues after Balenciaga unveiled a $2,000+ bag that has an uncanny resemblance to Ikea’s iconic 99 cents tote bag. Ever since Ikea humorously shot back at the French luxury fashion label, there have been a series of what we called Frakta bag hack, including a pair of not quite Frakta related sneakers (which is awesome, btw). Anyways, speaking of “Frakta bag hacks,” they are actually crazy cool and it ranges from face mask to bikini top to different bag styles. Hell, those Frakta-based products are so cool that you’d wish they were real products. Trust me, you will never look at the Frakta bag the same way again after this.

Tree Burning From The Inside Looks Absolutely Like LOTR’s Eye of Sauron

If you have the One Ring from Lord of the Rings, I would advise you not to wear it for the Eye of Sauron would have know you had that One Ring even if you are outside the fantasy land of Middle Earth. As it turns out the Great Eye is not exclusive to J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth, it was here on Earth, right smack in a grassy field in Baldwyn, Mississippi. Granted, there’s probably nothing sinister about this fiery ‘eye’. In fact, it is just an innocent tree that, for some reason, got hollowed out in the center, and managed to catch fire.

Reebok Savagely Poked Fun At Nordstrom’s $425 Mud-coated Jeans

Thanks to the Internet, we are starting to find out that businesses do have a sense of humor. Wendy’s is a good example, but today, it is not about Wendy’s. Today’s spotlight is on Reebok and it is not about the sporting company’s Alien kicks either; it is about how Reebok is having some fun with Nordstrom’s fake mud-coated denim that went viral a couple of weeks ago. Apparently, in response to Nordstrom’s ‘sensational’ jeans that had the honor of being lambasted by celebrities like Mike Rowe, Reebok has “introduced” an “authentic sweat shirt,” which you may have guessed it, is literally a shirt stains with sweat.
