Maxam Enormous 1 Gallon Stainless Steel Flask

you probably didn’t want to admit it, but your usual 18oz flask just isn’t enough to hold all the adult beverage that your body needs. but hey, this is the 21st century where anything can be made happen, like a 1 Gallon flask, for example. the Maxam Enormous 1 Gallon Stainless Steel Flask, it as what it says, holds up to 1 Gallon of your favorite burning liquid which is a lot of hard liquor for one person to down. to put things into perspective, this little big guy here allows you to stash nearly a little over five bottles of Wild Turkey Bourbon of 700ml each into it. so, if don’t get drunk pouring all those liquor into your guts by then, you deserve another gallon and a pad on the back. it is one giant flask that any parents will frown upon, but it is also one that your pals will salute you to, and since it measures 8-1/8″ x 15″ x 2-1/8″, it is unlikely you will be able to sneak this into any forbidden places without a backpack.

when it comes to furniture, the words ‘World’s Fastest’ hardly come into play, except if your furniture – a couch, in this instant – has an internal combustion engine under the hood, or should i say, under the seat. that’s truly one hot seat that would require you to don a full racing suit, racing shoes, and of course, a helmet when piloting it. especially so when it could hit 101 mph (163.12 km/h). this world record holder for the world’s fastest couch comes complete with a table (and a bowl of fruits to boot), not because of complimenting sake but rather, a necessity to improve its aerodynamic performance. this is one furniture that should compliment Perry Watkins’ world’s fastest dinning table and also betters Chris McIntosh’s leisure motorized recliner chair.
