  • Pebble Steel Watch (Watch Wednesday)

    One of the original smart watches to have mainstream success, the Pebble Watch, now has a more chic look. An option for a leather and steel band. The main concern with the original Pebble was the playful look that was reminiscent of a childs swatch. The steel band option really distinguishes the watch and it’s capabilities. The case is forged of CNC-machined stainless steel in a brushed or matte black finish, but retains the ePaper display and app compatibility of its plastic sibling. Each one ships with a metal and leather strap giving you a good diverse choice for any occasion. So now you can act like James Bond without feeling like Jimmy Neutron. Pebble Steel $249

  • A U.S. Map Of Failed Secessionist States

    Over the years there have been plenty of secessionist movements in the United States that would have further divided the union into more states to be united. Mansfield University geography professor Andrew Shears used these movements to draw an alternate universe United States map with 124 states. On his blog, he explains the historical events that went into creating the “United States…That Could’ve Been.” It’s a fine idea, but obviously it would never work because trying to fit 124 stars on tiny American flags would be too damn hard. Although, as someone who lived in Florida for 20 years, the idea of separating from the panhandle is quite enticing. 

  • Amazing Street Art of Afghanistan By U.S. Soldiers [10 Photos]

    When the U.S. military arrived in Afghanistan in 2001, one of the first things done to secure an area was to erect concrete walls. Originally, the barriers were kept bare under strict orders form superiors. However, more than a decade later, many brazen artists have taken to expressing themselves on the walls using spare paint from tank maintenance crews and stencils made from whatever bits of cardboard can be scavenged. No word yet on a Banksy residency in Kandahar. 

  • Most Expensive Versions Of Everyday Items [17 Photos]

    I spent $50 on a glass of single malt one time and felt like a baller. But now that I know there is such a thing as $300 toothpaste, I am harshly reminded that I’m more on par with a Victorian street urchin and I’m lucky that debtor’s prisons no longer exist. But maybe one day I can eat a $2300 hot dog that costs more than my first two cars or drink coffee that costs about as much as my rent. Until then, I’ll keep surviving off Burger King’s King Deals menu. It almost tastes like food! 

  • Dennis Rodman’s Touching Rendition Of Happy Birthday For Pal/Despot Kim Jong Un [Video]

    Glorious leader of Best Korea celebrated his birthday with good friend Dennis Rodman and a team of former NBA players, despite pressure from evil U.S. imperialists against the visit.

  • World War II Claims Another Victim, 70 Years After It Ended [13 HQ Photos]

    During World War II, American, British, and Russian forces dropped 2.7 million tons of bombs on Germany. It is estimated that somewhere between 7 and 15 percent of them were never detonated and remain hidden beneath the German soil, still live. 2000 bombs have been recovered in Berlin alone since the end of the war, with 10 to 15 still found each year. Usually they are found safely, with no injuries occurring, but on Friday, in the German town of Euskirchen, an excavator driver was killed and 13 others wounded when a World War II bomb went off. The blast even damaged windows and doors on buildings 400 meters away from the site. As of now, it’s unclear whether the device was buried underground or brought to the site for disposal or even what the device was. But with so many bombs still yet to be found, World War II may continue claiming victims.

  • Is Today the Day After Tomorrow?

    The phrase of the day is “polar vortex.”  To clear up the confusion, ‘polar vortex’ is not the name of an Alaskan heavy metal band, an MLS expansion team, or the new Kim Stanley Robinson novel. No, the polar vortex is the reason you had to wear three pairs of thermal socks today. CNN’s International senior meteorologist Brandon Miller explains: The polar vortex, as it sounds, is circulation of strong, upper-level winds that normally surround the northern pole in a counterclockwise direction — a polar low-pressure system.  These winds tend to keep the bitter cold air locked in the Arctic regions of the Northern Hemisphere. It is not a single storm. On occasion, this vortex can become distorted and dip much farther south than you would normally find it, allowing cold air to spill southward. That’s the science behind the phenomenon.  Here’s a collection of photos: Hold up. Sorry, those photos were from the 2004 sci-fi flic The Day After Tomorrow (via IMDB.com). Here are a few eerily similar-looking photos of the effects of the polar vortex on several actual American locations:   Brrrrrrrrrrrrr

  • 8 Lessons in Manliness From Nick Offerman

    The paragon of manliness in today’s culture, otherwise void of such mythical creatures, is Nick Offerman. Or more accurately, it is his character, Ron Swanson. If you couldn’t decipher, though, much of that televised manliness is tongue-in-cheek. Offerman, though it is hard to believe, eats vegetables sometimes. He admits to being sensitive and to taking ballet lessons. He does so with utmost confidence. He’s also modest and open-minded, at least according to his book, Paddle Your Own Canoe. Therefore, I think we can learn more about manliness from the real man behind the farcical myth than from the symbol of manliness that his character has become. Here are eight lessons, pretty literally transcribed from his book:

  • The Rodman North Korea Meltdown From the Thoughts of his Teammates

    If you didn’t hear or see the meltdown Dennis Rodman had during an interview with Chris Cuomo of CNN’s “New Day,” here it is. It is what it is. Rodman defends his movement to North Korea, pressing to stay out of the political tape during his time there. Defending his trip, claiming it’s strictly to bring the game of basketball to their culture. There are concerns for the welfare of U.S. citizen Kenneth Bae, who’s been detained there for more than a year for reasons that are unclear, which Rodman, and Rodman spokesman and teammate, Chris Smith refused to comment on. The other former NBA players are along side ‘The Worm’ to take part in a basketball game for Kim Jong Un’s 31st birthday against the North Korea team. The players knew they’d catch slack for participating in the controversial game for a dictator’s personal pleasure, but what they didn’t account for was the unpredictable Rodman’s on air meltdown, chalk full of tears and babble. The look on his teammates faces morph from objectified stance to “What have I done” in less than two minutes says it all. We’ve mocked up a few screengrabs from the best moments of the more »

  • Amsterdam In Motion Timelapse Video

    UK born photographer/filmmaker Jack Fisher is quickly becoming a big name in the hyperlapse medium. What seperates hyperlapse from regular timelapse is that the camera is moving throughout the shoot. His latest commission, “Amsterdam in Motion,” showcases the Dutch capital in November and December of 2013, during the annual Light Festival. The result is a high definition video of an already visually-striking city during one of the most epic public art installations in the world.

  • 30 Things I’ve Learned Last Year That Were Stupidly Obvious, But Helped Me Anyway

    I never thought I would see the day. But here I am, writing a proselytizing article with advice aimed at twenty-somethings from my own Gen-Y perspective–and it’s in (true Elite Daily) list form. Well, anyway, I’ve gotten over my squeamish fear of appealing to the mainstream, enough so that I wrote an article about all the nifty things I’ve learned this year. I’m sure I sound naive. And I am. All “twenty-somethings” that write “twenty-something” articles are naive. Because, they are “twenty-somethings”. Duh. Being well aware of that fact, I still think some of these ideas can help you. They’ve helped me out over the last year. These ideas continue to help me still. I’m sure some of them will be replaced by better ideas, but so goes the nature of life and living.

    Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston led his Florida State Seminoles to the last BSC National title of the modern era. Winston led the top-ranked FSU team to victory after an undefeated season.

In the second half, however, Famous Jameis took the reigns and led State to a 34-31 victory after a 4th quarter shootout.

  • Nicolas Cage Film Review Haiku

    I think we can all agree that Nicolas Cage is the greatest gift to mankind. Even when his movies are bad, and they’re often really, really, bad, there is always something insanely interesting about Cage’s performance. Maybe it’s the nonsensical voices he chooses for his characters. Maybe it’s the way he loses his shit. Whatever the reason, today we celebrate the 50th birthday of this fine actor. To commemorate his half-century of greatness I revisited some of his best films and wrote down my impressions in the form of haiku.

  • Footage From Nirvana’s Last LA Concert [Video]

The rest of them, with their scrawny frames and interesting facial hair, just look like the guys you’d see at any cocktail bar in Brooklyn drinking Fernet.
