Daredevil – Elektra Fight Scene

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

I wanted to start out my journey to SDDC with a terrible scene from a terrible comic book movie best forgotten: Daredevil.

A few things to note:

1) Yes, it’s even worse than you remember.
2) This is the guy who’s playing Batman.
3) Thankfully, there’s a far superior Daredevil series on Netflix to bleach your eyes with after watching this travesty…

Cannaflage

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

A reader has sent in info on an interesting camouflage shirt they procured at the Tahoe Hemp Company in Tahoe, CA. The shirt is made of 55/45 Hemp/Organic Cotton, hand-dyed by Divine Tribe in their proprietary Cannaflage pattern. The camo itself is reminiscent of digital Woodland, with cannabis leaves interspersed within the pattern. The reader claims the heavy, natural fibers allow the shirt to work well as a base layer, and although it took several washings to cut down on the scratchy texture, the shirt keeps warm when its cool, cool when its warm, and has great moisture wicking attributes.

RE Factor Tactical – Hand Grenade Dog Toy

Saturday, March 21st, 2015

Hand Grenade Dog Toy

RE Factor has come up with a heavier duty solution for doggie play time. The Hand Grenade Dog Toy is hand sewn from 1000D Cordura and nylon webbing. It features an integrated squeeker, which all dogs love. Although it is made from a durable material, RE Factor states it’s an interactive toy for both dog and owner, and isn’t designed for the sole purpose of chewing. For additional fun, you can pair it with the Pig Sticker Dog Toy, which if you haven’t guessed, is a knife-shaped dog toy.

Made in the USA.

ThinkGeek – Tactical Holiday Stocking

1687_tactical_holiday_stocking

Leave it to ThinkGeek to come up with something like a ‘Tactical Stocking’. Made from “Heavy Duty Nylon”, the all-black tactical stocking features PALS webbing, carabiners, quick-release buckles, a top handle, a Velcro panel, bi-directional side zipper, and a small, external pouch.

If it were in some kind of Christmas-themed camo, and they lost everything but the PALS webbing, external pouch, and the Velcro panel, I might actually want one.

Red Bull Class Action Settlement

Tuesday, October 7th, 2014

If you have purchased a Red Bull energy drink product in the United States between January 1st, 2002, and October 3rd, 2014, then you likely qualify as part of two class action lawsuits currently being held against Red Bull.

As part of the ongoing settlement, a qualified consumer may claim either:

1) a $10 check

2) $15 worth of Red Bull products shipped to your chosen address at Red Bull’s expense

No proof of purchase is necessary if you decide to submit a claim form, however it must be signed under penalty of perjury, so in the most extreme of scenarios it might not hurt to have an old receipt laying around.

For more information, and to fill out and submit a claim form, visit energydrinksettlement.com/index.

The Tacticool C96

Tuesday, September 16th, 2014

1937475-718890641533466-4289145245478193327-n

This is a picture of a Mauser C96 that’s been spreading around the internet, however instead of the classic design that served as the basis for Han Solo’s blaster, it’s been bubba’d up to a near unrecognizable state. Now, this could very simply be an airsoft replica gone wrong (or right, if it’s your thing). Unfortunately, the image is too low resolution to read any of the markings on the parts kit, which would be a dead giveaway. However, the image does feature a URL which leads to this page on the Chinese social media site Sina Weibo:

Weibo

Unfortunately, I’m not a Chinese citizen, which is required to get a Weibo membership, so I can’t access the profile beyond the initial public page. Additionally, the creator of this kit hasn’t come forward, so at the moment, I can’t determine if this is a real steel monstrosity, or just an airsoft one.
