If you’re into knife-throwing, I bet you’ll love The Furies. The package consists of three hand crafted throwing knives, representing a perfect mix of toughness and balance. Oh, I forgot to mention, they look awesome too. Two of the knives are Frontier inspired and the third is a Pro X thrower. If you’ll use them on a daily basis, you’ll become an expert in no time, but don’t forget : practice makes perfect. The Furies come wrapped in a sheath made of oiled leather and … continue reading
We cannot think of a better way to celebrate the passing of the last days of summer – the Viteo outdoor shower. Providing the cool-down you need, with a twist: unlike regular showers, this time you’ll be showering in public and sort of upside-down. We’re not entirely sure how effective an upside-down shower actually is, but it sure as hell looks appealing and hey, at least some areas will get clean. You can use it on the patio, in the garden, anywhere where there is … continue reading
We know it’s August, which means two things: summer is close to its end, yet it has reached the dreaded heat peak and therefore cannot be deemed as “almost September, bring out the pumpkin lattes” without a slick wipe of the sweat off your brow and a sheepish curl of the lips. We could tell you to move up North or hide in the basement but — wait, that’s exactly what we’re going to do. That and some other tips on how to beat the heat in the comfort of your hopefully air-conditioned urban home. Actually, if you have air-conditioning, why are you even reading this post? Go set it on minimum and laugh at the people who dare go outside at noon from behind closed blinds.
We all know it. It’s that little voice that keeps getting smaller and smaller as anti-cancer ads occupy more and more of the cigarette pack. The little voice that tells you that you should probably stop it with that nasty habit of yours, because you’re causing harm to more than just yourself, you selfish bastard. But how can someone that’s been exposed to threats and warnings against smoking ever take them seriously? We are so used to them that they’ve become background noise to our polluted ears.
We haven’t featured a sports gear/device in a while, so we thought it was about time to share with you this home boxing unit, that will allow you to stay indoors (and not outside, in the unbearable heat) and work on your beach body. There are two versions of the Nexersys boxing unit, and with $4,000 as the price difference you’ll want to be careful with what you choose to buy. The classic version (NXS-H) looks, at first sight, smaller and doesn’t seem as sturdy … continue reading
Ever wondered how you could turn your home workout equipment into art when not using it? By purchasing this concept bike that resembles an odd futuristic sculpture and merges utility with decor. Most of the at-home-bikes are the heavy folding type that have to be stored away so as not to disturb the design of the room. They’re even less used due to the fact that getting them out of storage is an effort to make. Also, we’re known to be kind of lazy. So … continue reading
Every time we go out, our eyes immediately dart towards the fast-food joints that so attractively present themselves to the hungry and busy man. Bright colors, huge pictures that promise mouth-watering goodness, smells that can knock you out if exposed to them for too long – in one word, temptation. Yes, it’s the temptation of the fast life we lead in a fast age where fast eating has become a necessary aspect of our daily routines. Gone are the days in which we took our … continue reading
