I think you can agree with me, people are generally stupid. Put stupid behind the wheel and you get an idiot driver that will text, eat, and read all while doing 80 MPH down the highway in bumper-to-bumper traffic.
I was having a flashback to seventh grade not long ago with a group of similarly immature people on Facebook. We were going back and forth tossing out all the slang terms for breasts that we could think up from our childhood.
What is it about rugged laptops that makes them so interesting? Is it the fact that you can take them on camping trips and not worry too much about scratching them? Or is it the fact that you can pretend to be on some sort of secret mission while you’re using one?
Dozens of proud parents and relatives have uploaded videos of their babies using an iPad, so we know that their little brains can handle Apple’s tablet. But their little brains also occasionally come up with revolutionary ideas, like “I wonder what would happen if you dropped the iPad”, or “I bet that tablet tastes good – why don’t you give it a bite?
Remember the All Star Super Mario Bros. Nintendo Chuck Taylors that we were all drooling over? I’m sure you also remember how the only problem with those Chucks are that they won’t be released outside of Japan.

I think watches are the most popular accessory there is. First of all, they’re functional. They tell you the time primarily, while some models even display the date, the temperature, what day of the week it is, and so on and so forth.
Decent Airsoft guns can look quite realistic and menacing. But YouTuber styropyro figured his Airsoft gun wasn’t geeky enough, so he gutted it out and converted it to a laser rifle. So instead of a gun that shoots bullets at a hundred miles per hour, now styropyro has a gun with a projectile that goes at the speed of light.
Imagine using your laptop and powering it up by simply using the keyboard. If you think about it, it starts to make sense because if the power typing could be harnessed, it could be used to generate electricity.
I don’t know about you guys, but the only use I have for AA batteries right now is for my TV’s remote control; all of my gadgets have rechargeable Li-ion batteries. But if I had Sanyo’s Eneloop Mobile USB Booster I’d have bought some extra rechargeable AA batteries.
The Irrational Numbers Clock is slightly more complicated that the Unit Circle Radian Wall Clock. Also, the fact that it looks like a blackboard has a certain scholarly appeal. While I am a mathematician, anyone with high-school math should be able to read this clock.
There really is an app for everything today, including elective body modification. A plastic surgeon named Dr. Jonathan Kaplan has announced that he has launched a new app that will be offered globally called BuildMyBod.
