Hidden Treasure of the Modern World

0

I can’t help but think of Rat Race, sure there’s no betting going on here, and no one knows for sure where the treasure is, but there’s still an excitation millionaire’s ploy to put the common person on a field day. This is a literal treasure chest, gold coins, gold bars, gold nuggets, diamonds, sapphires, rubies, … Continued

DIY Smart Blinds

0

Reddit user yavin427 has hooked up an Amazon Echo to his living room blinds so that he can say “Alexa turn off blinds” and they close, or vice versa.  He has a not too detailed, but pretty detailed imgur album you can look through where he shows the process.  I may be a programmer, but … Continued

Survival Fire Piston

0

Instructables user wartellc made his own Fire piston in about 4 hours.  I had never heard of one of these before, but the concept is pretty basic, I like it.  I don’t have any of the tools necessary to make my own, so I’ll probably just buy one, it’s only $25 on Amazon.  However, the … Continued

Insane Domino Rally

0

I remember when I was little I would constantly make a mess of my basement setting up Domino Rally runs.  They always ended up going off prematurely and ruining hours of setup time, but it was still fun.  YouTube user FlippyCat seems to have collected 30 or 40 of every individual Domino Rally set ever … Continued

Tetris JENGA

0

For $26 on Amazon you can get this pretty unique game that takes Tetris into the our dimensions.  On the surface it’s regular Jenga, but the pieces aren’t straight blocks, they are the familiar pieces from Tetris.  As you can see, you can get some pretty incredibly impossible structures here.  The only question I have … Continued

Star Wars Again

0

Yes I’m posting some more Star Wars stuff, deal with it.  The internet has an unhealthy obsession with Nicolas Cage.  I’ll be the first to admit, I like him.  But like all things on the internet, it’s not an entireally respectful love. I wouldn’t see this movie, but I do think it would be just … Continued

The Man in the High Castle

0

I don’t remember what I was watching when this trailer came out.  Maybe it was The Great War, maybe it was something else, either way, I’m glad I didn’t skip the ad.  In a bit to combat Netflix, which is trying to combat big Cable, which, in turn, is combating the major networks, Amazon has … Continued

Puzzle Blueprints

0

You’ve all seen these classic puzzles.  They have a objective, disassemble the locked rings, or make a shape using only 3 of the 4 pieces.  Well, have you ever wondered how they are made?  You’re in luck, William L. Hunter drew up some blueprints for a dozen or so of these different mind puzzles.  You … Continued

The Money Pit

0

Riptide was an interesting book, it engaged you and kept you guessing, I won’t spoil the book’s ending for you,  but below you can listen to a podcast about the actual pit that inspired the book.  Yes, the story I’m about to tell you is based on true events, but Futility Closet seems to take … Continued

From My Cold Dead Paws: Cats and the Guns They Love (Paperback)

0

I don’t know where this book came from, or how it got published, but suffice to say, James Bennett is a genius.  He has taken two of my favorite things, and somehow managed to find a portal to another universe where cats have opposable thumbs, and can not only hold these firearms, but use them.  … Continued
