Shoot and play songs with the Harmonica Pistol

As a lover of music and a denizen of a state in support of the U.S. Constitution’s Second Amendment allowing for the right to bear arms, the Harmonica Pistol is a fascinating, albeit disturbing, combination of the two.  Unfortunately for players of the harmonica, the musical aspect in the firearm’s name is a bit of […]

Maximo Riera Octopus Chair

Anyone who has ever held an office job or has dwelled in a basement knows the importance of a really comfortable chair. After all, hours – or days – of sitting down with the computer in front of you can only distract you from lower back pain and whatnot for so long. At the end […]

A couple of days ago someone sent me a link to an article about gadget discounts. When I visited the site, not only […]
