In the "I-Want-Me-One-Of-These" category...



The current flying car prototype AeroMobil 3.0 has been tested in real flight conditions since October 2014. Initially certified by the Slovak Federation of Ultra-Light Flying, it now entered a regular flight-testing program.

The AeroMobil 3.0 prototype is very close to the final product. It is predominantly built from the same materials as the final product, such as advanced composite materials for the body shell, wings, and wheels. It also contains all the main features that will be incorporated into the final product, such as avionics equipment, autopilot and an advanced parachute deployment system.


(Thanks, Billy!)

After watching both trailers for Avengers: Age of Ultron, I want the end credit scene to be in Stark Tower with Thor’s hammer ("Mj√∂lnir", for the purists) sitting on a table. The door opens and it’s Stan Lee as a janitor. Stan looks at the hammer for a second, then picks it up, cleans under it, sets it down and leaves.

A lady friend of mine says I'm unsophisticated and uncultured, so to prove her wrong, guess where I'm taking her? Hint: It starts with "B" and rhymes with "mallet."

I make a motion we rename the “selfie stick” the “narcissistick”

You know how like, on Family Feud, when someone gives a really crappy response and their family yells, “Good answer!!!”? I need a crew like that to follow me everywhere.

If only Colin Mochrie did the actual news...

Teacher: Umm, how so?

Student: Well, you know, it should technically be 50-50 whether you get it the right way on the first try… But it’s always the wrong way around.

Teacher:

Student:

Teacher: That is a very good example…

Sci-fi weapon? Or electric violin?


Okay, I don't even PLAY the violin, but I WANT me one of these!
