It’s Christmas time and little kids all over the world are worrying about what Santa is going to give them more than what the spirit of the season is all about. Well in order to bring their hopes and dreams down, I’m going to show them a set of insane Hot Wheels tracks that they wish they could build and they wish Santa would bring them.
It’s too late now mommy and daddy, you can’t get this stuff anymore.
I like the first one in the skate park, that was pretty ace.
Here’s a better view of #6, it’s not a track it’s an art installation. Boring. I do like the speed scale though, that’s ridiculous. It goes to show that you would never withstand the G-Forces of it.
Number 4 is ridiculous. There are wooden loops, it’s reminiscence of Action Park in it’s high qualityness.
Number 2 is pretty awesome, from it’s humble beginnings. It looks simple but then you see how gar along the house and the yard that it goes. I do like #1 with the PVC pipes holding the track for parts of it. Pretty neat.
Anyway Enjoy Children. And if you’ve managed to build a track of equal or better value, let me know.
Are perpetually done.
It’s been Thirty years since Los Angeles joined the ranks of cities whose only qualification was to be a victim of a terrorist act. Though, were they really terrorists? Their own ranks called themselves exceptional thieves, and one-time kidnappers, not terrorists. No Hans Grubber and his pals were opportunists, and only cared about money, $600 million worth. A simple police officer from New York City in town to visit his wife and kids was what messed it all up for them.
Yes, Die Hard is 30 years old this year. And last December, the Library of Congress selected Die Hard (among 24 other films) it’s …cultural, historic and/or aesthetic importance. Yes Die Hard fits the bill for all three of those qualifications. It’s a master piece that holds up surprisingly well given the time period. I dare you to find another action movie from the 80s which isn’t incredible dated with cheese lines and effects. I dare you to find another heist movie where the score is still a relevant sum of money 30 years later. Six Hundred Million Dollars was a lot of money in 1988, it’s still a lot of money in 2018. When it comes to money, so often the sums are in reasonable ranges for the time period and with inflation, they seem petty by current standards. No, it will be quite a while (if ever) when $600 million is seen as petty). Heck, even Ocean’s 11 (which itself is 17 years old already!) was only taking home $160 million.
So, take a seat, grab some popcorn, (or Twinkies), and watch this Christmas classic, even if Bruce Willis says it’s not.
Candy Canes are a traditional Christmas delicacy. And I use the word delicacy lightly. It’s not exactly rare. It is one of those things though that you really only see at one time of the year. If you ever wondered how they are made, here are a series of videos curtesy of MAKE that show you just that. Check after the jump for them all, I don’t want to bog down the home page with YouTube.
How could we go all year without the reminder of this classic?
I didn’t think so, did you?
Looks like tons of fun honestly.
No doubt about it, electric trains are cool. They are expensive though. And you could get called “a nerd.” But really, those people are just not cool, so there.
Follow the simple 4 step instructable to make “The Simpliest Electric Train“. Now, watch the video of it in action. It’s quite cool. Except the jumps, that part sucks, don’t build this expecting to get some sick jumps. You’ll be dissapointed.
If your kid, or brother, or friend wants a Train for Christmas. A. Get them one, (if they’ve been a good child that is). B) If they like trains, then they’re probably interested in science. Why not spend $20 and make this with them. It will be cool and get them interested in science.
