  • Things China Makes (Infographic)

    China makes so many goods, that if it suddenly decided to stop, most of the rest of the world would experience impossibly high demand for many “essentials” of modern life — things like air conditioners, cell phones and personal computers. That’s not all, though, China produces almost 50% of all pork in the world, while also producing the same amount of coal. 

  • Tear Jerker Of The Day: 96 Year Old Man Writes A Song “Oh Sweet Lorraine” For His Late Wife And Wins A Contest

    A 96-year-old Illinois man named Fred Stobaugh wrote a song about his wife of 75 years and when he sent the heart-wrenching ode into a singer-songwriter contest, they decided to produce it for him.

  • Jefferson’s Small Batch Bourbon

    A woody nose with vanilla and golden caramel syrup makes you appreciate small batch bourbons like a french cafe in a mall cafeteria. Small batch bourbons typically blend 200 to 300 barrels  before bottling where as Jefferson’s blends 8 to 12. Yeah, exactly. So bourbon is typically aged in large warehouses, so that hundreds of the barrels can age uniformly. I’m sure you know heat rises, which cause much more volatility in temperature for the barrels high near the roof. Large fluctuations in temperature cause barrels to age faster and in turn lose flavor due to evaporation. Because of this barrels are blended together to keep flavor consistent, but barrels in the center of the warehouse are set aside, because those are always the best barrels for flavor. Jefferson’s basically only blends the best of the best, giving it a “very” small batch title, instilling the quality of each bottle. Going down it’s a velvety smooth and delicate body that warms the palette. The finish is moderate in length, with a tiny kick at the end. $30

  • TCU Unveils Uniforms with a Hidden Meaning More Badass Than the Uniforms

    TCU have always been on the forefront of innovation. In 1935, Coach Dutch Meyer revolutionized football during a run to the national championship introducing the “Meyer Spread,” a formation that allowed star quarterback Sammy Baugh to revolutionize the forward pass. Now they join the ranks of the college football uniform revolution, only they did it perfect. At first glance the uniform is striking, but not overdone. A matte black top and bottom with  subtle hints of Nike’s new spiked design patteren toned down on the shoulders and the stenciled numbers. Purple under shirts and socks to keep the TCU tradition and now an even lesser seen red accent. on their socks, gloves and helmet. A matte purple and black camo pattern on the helmet symbolizes the horned frogs ability to blend with it’s surroundings, but the uniform’s red accents that harken back to the horned frog’s defense mechanism, 

  • Scientists Create Hydrating Beer Which Could End World Hangover

    Rejoice! A team of super-hero, angel researchers at Griffith Health Institute in Australia have created a recipe with a hydrating beer that could rid the world of hangovers. The team began to rethink how beer was made and used electrolytes in their recipe, which in turn replenish and rehydrate you as you drink your life away at your local watering hole. Imagine waking up on a Sunday and not cursing Aunt Bethany’s name for not only being born, but being born 75 years ago, this very Sunday. The beer’s taste also wasn’t affected in adding the electrolytes and after Associate Professor, Ben Desbow gave his subjects four kinds of beer—including their improved version—to people who had finished exercising, found out that their modified beer was a third better at hydrating people than an ordinary one. Now for the bad news, because of the amount of electrolytes needed to hydrate, alcohol content must be reduced, so for all the genuine alcoholics out there, you might want to pass. Then again you probably just drink away the hangover anyway. [Via: Daily Mail UK}

  • 6 Professional Athletes Who Have Given Music A Try

    Music and athletics are often thought of as mutually exclusive. Athletes aren’t thought of to possess artistic ability for somewhat unfounded reasons that exist solely in the realm of immature stereotyping. Don’t be mistaken, sometimes the stereotypes are true and athletes should not be allowed to step into a music-recording booth—people like John Cena. But, the WWE star is excluded from consideration due to the blatantly scripted nature of the professional wrestling. And, this list will only focus on athletes who don’t play in scripted sporting affairs.

  • Tori Hunter Steals Home From 2nd on a 2 Out, 3rd Strike Passed Ball

    Tori “Willie Mayes Hayes” Hunter might have lost a step or two, but he has the experience and game awareness to make a critical heads up decision that only years of playing will teach. Two outs down as Prince Fielder had a 2-2 count against him in the bottom of the 7th inning and it looked as though Caleb Thielbar was going to get his team out of a bind. Thielbar took out Fielder on a nasty up and in 93 MPH fastball that just got by Ryan Doumitt, Fielder took notice and like all baseball players are taught in little league, run it out on a past ball. Thats where Tori Hunter’s baseball instincts take over. Hunter was savvy enough to recognize Thielbar asleep at the mound and took an extra base, putting another notch on the Tigers belt.

  • The Tesla Model S Scored The Best Safety Rating of Any Car. Ever.

    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave The Tesla Model S  five star ratings across all of the NHTSA’s crash tests, because it can withstand a hit like no other car they’ve seen. The Model S has climbed many hurdles of doubt recently and can now officially stand atop the mountain and scream, because it is now champion. An electric car so beautiful, so economical, so fast and now so safe it blows literally every other car tested by the NHTSA out of the water. Not only that. It achieved better than perfect. “Safety levels better than 5 stars are captured in the overall Vehicle Safety Score (VSS) provided to manufacturers,” Tesla Motors said in a statement. “The Model S achieved a new combined record of 5.4 stars.” “The Model S has the advantage in the front of not having a large gasoline engine block, thus creating a much longer crumple zone to absorb a high speed impact,” said Tesla. “The longer the crumple zone, the more time there is to slow down occupants at g loads that do not cause injuries.” It appears as though Tesla is flipping off the entire auto industry and making a car with the potential we more »
