  • 7 Stranger-than-fiction Lawsuits of 2014

    2014 has seen it’s fair share of weird moments thus far. With cell phone cameras and video it looks as though the universal strangeness of this world is becoming more and more ubiquitous, but what’s even stranger are the legal suits being filed. In this year alone, several stranger-than-fiction lawsuits have been files, the most notable being a high school student suing her parents after they threw her out of the house for not abiding by their home rules, another being a little league coach who sued his player after a walk off home sparked a sequence of events resulting in the coach with a torn achilles. All these lawsuits are 100% true as they are bizarre, but unfortunately this is the world we live in today. Thanks Gloria Allred.

  • 15 MLB Pitchers in the Tommy John Hall of Fame

    This week, baseball fans everywhere got some bad news. Jose Fernandez, the most exciting young pitcher in the game, has hit the DL, and doctors are recommending “Tommy John” (i.e. elbow ligament replacement) surgery. That means nobody is going to get to watch this electrifying 21-year-old pitch for another 12-18 months, which is just depressing. Of course, it’s hardly surprising any more. We’re currently in the middle of what some are calling a Tommy John epidemic. Fernandez is just the latest high-profile casualty. What’s the cause? Why are so many elite pitchers going under the knife? Well, it’s likely a combination of two factors. The first is that more guys are having it done because the procedure is now so effective. In the past pitchers may have tried to rehab elbow injuries. Now they’re electing to go under the knife right away so that, ultimately, they’ll be in peak physical shape for longer. The other factor? Guys are overworking their arms from an earlier age. With millions of dollars at stake, elite prospects are playing ball year round, playing for multiple teams in multiple leagues, trying to develop their talent as quickly and thoroughly as possible. And this is destroying more »

  • 5 Money Issues to Discuss Before the Wedding Day

    Talking about money might not be as fun as discussing the songs your reception band will play or the tropical location in which you’ll be honeymooning, but it’s truly one of the most important pre-wedding talks you’ll have. You’re probably aware that finances are one of the issues married couples argue about the most. To make matters worse, these types of arguments have also been attributed as the leading cause of divorce in the United States. Like any issue in a relationship, the best course of action is to have an early discussion to get ahead of any potential problems before they arise. To help you get started, here are five money-related conversations to have with your future spouse before the big day:

  • The Incredible Loads Of Vietnamese Motorbikes [10 Photos]

    With tons of people traveling on very narrow roads, motorbikes are the most common mode of transportation on Vietnamese streets. Whereas Americans find the need to drive gigantic SUVs and pickup trucks to transport absolutely nothing, the Vietnamese do the exact opposite, overloading their little bikes to an absurd degree. Photographer Hans Kemp moved to Ho Chi Minh City in 1995 and in 2000 was commissioned to capture photos of the city’s motorbike culture. He was enamored with the insane amount of all sorts of objects on the tiny bikes and spent the next two years photographing as many as he could. The collection became a book titled “Bikes of Burden.” Kemp recently returned to city for a revised edition to his book. He found that although the streets have widened, the bike culture is just as prevalent, with immense loads as abundant as ever. Order the new edition of “Bikes of Burden” for $24.

  • Awesome Illustrations of “Pop Culture Buddies” from TV & Film

    The term bromance is the common term used today, but throughout cinema and TV history alike, there has always been major success for two best friends who offer a dynamic charisma to the screen. Australian artist Dave Collinson thought up a great concept to illustrate the most famous “bromances” of the past 40 years captured in a series of paintings. Collinson went all in getting great moments like Jesse and Heisenberg getting after some ‘Los Pollos Hermanos’ fried chicken, Marty McFly and Doc Brown cruising on some hoverboards and Carton and Will doing “the Carlton”.   

  • Famous Brand Logos Star Wars Style

    These are the logos you’ve been looking for. New Zealand-based designer Barn Bocock used logos from brands like Coca-Cola, Atari, and Nike to mixed them up with Star Wars characters to create these awesome designs. Hopefully this is just the beginning of the series, because a Lando Rover logo would be pretty sweet. Or maybe Leia potato chips? No, that’s actually a terrible idea. You can order your favorite on a T-shirt at the incredible named How to Carv Roast Unicorn store.

  • Your First Look At The Atlanta Braves New Ballpark [7 Photos]

    The Atlanta Braves have released six conceptual renderings for a first peek at the new ballpark and mixed-use development design. “This is a very early look at how our vision is shaping up and, even though we are still months away from final plans and drawings, we are very pleased with the progress,” said John Schuerholz, president of the Atlanta Braves. “The renderings represent the sense of place we intend to create 365 days a year in addition to a world-class ballpark.” Shopping, dining, living, office and entertainment space, as well as a boutique hotel, will create a play, work, stay environment complete with green space and a water feature. The development, combined with an intimate, state-of-the-art ballpark, will keep this destination bustling year round. You can attempt to view the images over at homeofthebraves.com but chances are the site will be down because it is flooded with traffic so we pulled together the photos below of the ballpark set to open in April 2017.

  • Pop-Up Restaurant That Parachutes Sandwiches to Customers Is Coming To New York City

    There’s nothing really special about toasted sandwiches, but when they’re delivered via parachute, people are bound to notice. Taking full advantage of this idea is a new Melbourne business called ‘Jafflechutes‘ that has taken the city by storm. More pop-up eatery than regular restaurant, Jafflechutes is just a bunch of guys dropping wrapped sandwiches from their friends’ balconies, to customers down below.

  • This Hovercraft is set to Hit the Market by 2017

    California-based tech company Aerofex has been working on a street ready Aero-X hovercraft that is slated for flight tests in 2 years and will be market ready by 2017. The estimated price is a steep $85,000, but by then limes and honey should cost about the same so it’s a no brainer. The Aero-X hovercraft rides like a traditional motorcycle carrying up to two riders weighing up to 310 lbs combined.  After a vertical helicopter like takeoff, the hovercraft can cruise at speeds of 45 mph and get as high at 10 ft off the ground. The rotary engine only gets 1.25 hours per tank, so be weary of your travels. While safety is an obvious concern with propellers flailing about 10 feet above civilization, all the proper precautions have been taken making sure the rotors are isolates completely, also making for a better liftoff. While this may seem like the ultimate recreational experience, there are whispers of serious practicality uses for safety officials to patrol treacherous terrain like desserts or rocky regions. Reserve yours for just $5,000 now, a small price to pay for hoverglory.

  • Summer Warmly Welcomes The Runwell Watch By Shinola (Watch Wednesday)

    There’s no hotter watch brand than Shinola right now, we wrote about them in our inaugural issue of The RSVLTS Magazine in September 2013 and they’ve grown ten fold since then. Recently opening up a flagship store in Manhattan and having their watches distributed around the globe is proof that the great people of Detroit have taken their assembly skills to another level of intricacy. Handmade in a Detroit factory from the best watch materials in the world (Switzerland) the Shinola brand is sweeping the globe with their subtle yet bold designs. Each of The Runwell line is made from a sapphire crystal, Super-LumiNova printed dial details, and a solid stainless steel case with screw down crown with the movement thanks to the Detroit-built Argonite 1069 high-accuracy quartz movement. But that steel blue face with that brown leather band though. The Runwell watch is one of Shinola’s best selling watches, but all three models amplify the same style. Keep your eyes peeled for their signature lightning bolt, you’ll be seeing it for years to come. Shinola The Runwell $550

  • Live Long And Prosper In This Star Trek Bachelor Pad [22 Photos]

    Marc Bell, best known as former CEO of FriendFinder Networks, a company we’ve never heard of and whose services we have certainly never used when drunk and lonely, is selling his home in Boca Raton, Florida. And at $35 million, it’s the most expensive listing in the city’s history. From the outside, the 8-bedroom, 16-bath home looks like any run of the mill Mediterranean-style mansion you’ve seen. But inside the 27,000 square foot home is a replica of the control room from Star Trek’s Enterprise spaceship along with a “Call of Duty” themed room and a huge arcade. Outside you’ll find a basketball court, pool, and lounge complete with a giant chess set. For more info, beam yourself up to Douglas Elliman Real Estate. And may the force be with you or something.
