South Korean Girl Removes Her Makeup After Two Years, Now Looks Twice Her Age
My mom didn’t really introduce me to makeup; I sort of discovered it on my own in the middle of college. (Much later than most, I know.) I like experimenting with new looks sometimes, although I usually just stick with my basic routine whenever I go out because I don’t want to risk looking like a raccoon if I mess up.

Course of the Force: A Relay Race with Lightsabers!
Let’s be honest, not much will get your average geek to run. I mean, the typical things such as free smartphones, hot chicks in skimpy Comic-Con costumes, and obviously nachos will do the trick. You might be inclined to take a run for charity but lack the motivation.

Nike Develops Prosthetic Leg Running Sole: Cyborgs Run Among Us
The Nike Sole was designed to fit on Össur’s Flex-Run prosthetic running blade, which is used by competitive amputee athletes. That being said, I wonder if future robots will be using this technology to outrun their human prey?

Buhel Speakgoggle G33 Intercom Goggles Let Fellow Skiers Hear Your Cries for Help

Nike+ FuelBand Tracks: Activity Tracking in a Snap
I was pretty happy that I held off purchasing a Jawbone Up wristband because users have reported massive failures. Since then, Jawbone has had to offer full refunds to anyone who made a claim. The Nike FuelBand reminds me of the Up, but unlike the Up it might actually work.

Going to the doctor sucks, I think many would agree. I won’t go unless something is hanging loosely by tendon and sinew or I take another arrow to the knee. Checkup is another word for hypochondria to me.
