Cards Against Humanity – The Holiday Hole

Friday, November 25th, 2016

pasted-image-at-2016_11_25-02_16-pm

Every year around the holidays, the Cards Against Humanity team comes up with a new gimmick. Last year, for Black Friday, they sold literally nothing… for $5 a pop. Unabashed capitalism at its finest.

This year, they’re digging a hole. And that’s pretty much it.

The reason we brought this up is because our friends at Tacticalgear.com donated a $1001 towards this funny but ultimately pointless endeavor. In fact, here’s the email they received after their donation:

TAC-SAC – Get Your Balls Back America

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

There’s not a lot that needs to be said about the TAC-AC. Rather, it’s something that you get, once youve seen. Unfortunately, in this day and age, the TAC-SAC may be offensive to some, so I’ll suggest you not go to the jump unless you’re sure your career won’t be in jeopardy. (more…)

Chuck Norris Launches Bottled Water Brand Called CFORCE

Monday, October 10th, 2016

This is a cross-post from sister site Soldier Systems Daily. It’s too apropos for the usual coverage on this site not to share here.

Billed as a ‘Force of Nature’, new CFORCE from Chuck Norris is bottled right on his Lone Wolf Ranch in Navasota, TX. As you can imagine, if Chuck Norris is involved it’s not going to come from some boring tap in a factory. On no; according to the webiste, ‘doesn’t flow from the ground; it bursts from an artesian spring with the same unharnessed power and intensity you’d expect from Chuck Norris’ roundhouse kick.’ Pretty awesome.

Please note, a portion of CFORCE sales benefit environmental initiatives and KICKSTART KIDS—a charity that empowers at-risk youth. The Norris family has supported these causes for more than 25 years.

Thanks for the heads up Nate! Stay safe out there!

Blue Bell – Camo ‘n Cream

CamonCream_box

Blue Bell has released a camouflage-inspired ice cream flavor named, appropriately enough, ‘Camo ‘n Cream’. The ice cream is composed of three separate flavors: Pistachio Almond, Milk Chocolate and cream cheese. It should be on store shelves, although it will be a limited release.

Tactical Outfitters – Dickbutt Air Freshener 

Saturday, August 27th, 2016

  

If you’re not familiar with Dickbutt, it’s an internet meme; ’nuff said about that (Google it if you’re interested). Given the name, and the potential smells associated with said name, any wariness about the odor of an air freshner such as this one is fully understood, but it smells fine, honest! Just a generic, ‘fresh’-smelling air freshner… that looks like Dickbutt.

Cabot Guns – Meteorite Pistols

Wednesday, June 8th, 2016

42

Cabot Guns’ Big Bang Pistol Set, also known as the Meteorite Pistols (insert some play on words about ‘Space-Age Materials’) are a unique set of two 1911s. They were made from an iron-nickel alloy obtained from a meteorite that crashed into what is now Gibeon, Namibia, billions of years ago. Reportedly, the pistols are valued at approximately $5 million, although it remains to be seen wether anyone is willing to pay that much for them.

You can find out more about the pistols at cabotgun.com

The Tactical Vape Shop

There’s gotta be a joke about a smoking barrel or something in this. Also, I have to wonder if their vaporizers come with Picatinny rails.

Nuka Cola Quantum Available Direct From Jones

Friday, April 15th, 2016

Untitled

If you missed out on your chance to pick up a pack of Nuka Cola Quantum-branded Jones Soda from your local Target store, you’re (kinda) in luck. Jones is currently selling it direct to the consumer, however there is a few caveats:

1) One order per person – 4 bottles per order
2) Quantity is limited
3) It’s pretty darn expensive

On that last bit, it’s not online auction price bad, but at $27/4 bottles, it’s pretty close. This is purely a collectors item, folks. If you want the taste, crack open a Jones Berry Lemonade instead; it’s the same thing.

I saw one of these in the wild when I was out and about today, and I figured it was worth a post. It’s a personal protection stun gun with a rubberized body, colored zombie green. It comes with an activation key/wrist strap, and is capable of an output of 1 million volts.

Nothing Goes Together Quite Like Tortillas And Chocolate

SSD Admin just came back from IWA in Germany, and brought back a new flavor of Ritter Sport, which features bits of tortilla chips mixed in with the chocolate. I haven’t had the chance to try it myself, but at the very least I can say it’s an… interesting choice for a flavor.

An Update On The Red Bull Class Action Settlement

Sunday, February 14th, 2016

Back in October 2014, I wrote a brief article about a class action lawsuit being conducted against Red Bull, and the resulting settlement that you could claim if you qualified as a purchaser of Red Bull products. I put my own claim form in around that time, and eventually it faded from my memory.

IMG_4874

Well, yesterday, I received the above package, and was a bit confused about its origin until I opened it up and found a 4-pack of 8.4 oz. cans of regular Red Bull.

Comparatively, EOTech is pretty quick on getting those refunds out on their Holographic Sights.

Massdrop – Tactical Christmas Stockings

Massdrop Tactical Stockings

Massdrop is currently having a deal on “Tactical” Christmas Stockings. The stocking itself isn’t new (I have a story on one from last year, and they’ve been around for even longer than that), but the 25%-off MSRP might be an attractive buy to some interested parties. They’re available in Black, Gray, or Tati-Claus Red.

Oh, and you’ll need a Massdrop account to see the page and actually make a purchase, so here’s a screenshot which should serve as a sufficient preview:

if Industries – “First Shot” DL4.4oz Blaster Flask

Monday, November 16th, 2015

DL44+shoot+pouring+2

Insignificant Fish Industries has created a 4.4 oz flask called the “First Shot” based on Han Solo’s DL-44 heavy blaster pistol. The silver muzzle is the flask’s cap and unscrews to be a 1.5oz shot glass. As of now, it is an unlicensed product, so it’s technically unavailable, but here’s to hoping it gets the go ahead for actual production sometime down the line.

Y’know how in Hollywood movies and tv shows where some goober pounds randomly on a keyboard and somehow they produce a long string of code, or hack into a secret Government installation’s computer network? Well, that’s bunk, but don’t fret! There’s a website which allows you to mirror the skills of the greatest of Hollywood hackers. Just pound on your keyboard and long strings of code appear on demand.

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…
