Famous Cities Skyline Rings

anillo-de-ciudades-famosas

Jewelry can say a lot about you. If you’re carrying double digit carats and more gold than you can find on the Sistine Chapel, there’s a chance you’re trying to tell the world you have money, and would like them to know it. But if you’re donning these Cityscape Rings from Etsy seller Shekhtwoman, you’re saying you have an appreciation for art, metropolitan architectural artistry, and have generally have good taste. At least we think so. The rings represent famous skylines from cities like Paris, New York, San Francisco, and Boston, as well as some more obscure ones like Charleston or Edinburg (not saying Edinburg isn’t famous, but… well, it’s not quite as recognizable now is it…)

The rings start out at $69 for the Bronze and Brass versions, but sadly many of these cheaper ones seem to be sold out. If you’ve got $1,359 burning a hole in your pocket, the Platinum versions are still generally available.

Hexacups Bring Structural Superiority To Beer Pong

hexacup-1

Who knew that the venerable game of beer pong could use a little bit of structural engineering improvements? Yet, there you have it: Hexacups are undeniably better than regular beer cups. Their hexagonal shape give them a few advantages. For one, they’re much harder to crush. Drunk frat boys tossing ping pong balls around will sometimes fall over and screw the pooch. Also, they’re much easier to rack; just press them together and the straight edges will align themselves in 1/4 of the time it normally takes. Also, since the edges are touching, there’s no gaps, nor any way for a stray cup to just fall over or move around during play. At a $15 pledge for a basic set of 22 cups and 3 balls, it’s priced just right. It’s a Kickstarter that has yet to reach its goal, but they’re not far off.

A PB&J Bottle Of Old Fashioned

pbj_old_fashioned_1

When it comes to putting things in our mouths, we’re big fans of big bold tastes. That’s why we are such big fans of bacon. But the tasty cured meat isn’t the only flavour that gets our buds going. The peanut butter and jelly combination is a staple in any kid’s lunch box, and for good reason: that stuff is tasty! Now that you’ve grown up, you might be interested in the Peanut Butter and Jam Old Fashioned instead.

– Warming tasty bourbon with notes of peanut butter and jam
– Sweetened using homemade raspberry syrup
– Salted with pink Himalayan rock salt
– Each burly bottle is labelled and corked by hand in East London
– Dipped in a delicious raspberry-scented wax seal
– Even better than the legendary sandwich

It’s already mixed and ready to drink, either neat or on the rocks. Just do yourself a favour and enjoy this libation by itself and not mixed with some orange juice or some other monstrosity. You will be paying £39.99 ($56USD) for the privilege after all.

Taser Pulse, The Company’s Smallest Device, Is For Civilian Use

taser-pulse-1

Police have Tasers, but they’re not the only ones who do. As a matter of fact, the company has just announced the release of their smallest model yet, aimed at the consumer market. The Taser Pulse is the smallest device in their arsenal, measuring “a mere 5.24 inches long by 4.5 inches tall and weighing roughly half a pound.” Don’t let its size fool you, since it does come “with rechargeable batteries, two live Taser cartridges, laser-assisted targeting and a 15-foot range.” It’s small enough to stuff in a smallish handbag or behind your back, and can provide you with some peace of mind if you expect to be walking through a rough patch of town. It’s $399 but won’t ship until late Q1 of this year. You can of course pre-order it, right now. You should also check local laws first to make sure you’re allowed to carry this.

Competitors take note: THESE Bluetooth Earbuds are BENDY #winning

unnamed-6

by AshleyJane Kneeland @LivingIncurably? and 1byOne. -Ed.

And my latest product introduction for you, courtesy of 1byOne…bendy earbuds! Or as the company like to call them, 1byeOne’s Wireless Sports Earphones for music & calls.

Wireless earphones play a special role in my life. I wear them for most of my waking hours to absorb the awful ringing/screechy noise I hear constantly due to Tinnitus. (In 2016 my family is endeavoring to have one day a week with no complaining. Today is that day so I won’t dive further into how frustrating Tinnitus is.) For more details check out an April 2015 post here.

After having now tried a handful of different wireless earphone systems, 1byeOne’s stands out because the strap which runs behind your neck connecting the two ear pieces is BENDY. The benefits of it being BENDY is twofold. One, it’s easier to store and carry around with you and two, it’s more discreet to wear. Instead of a large piece of hard plastic connecting your ears there is instead a thin bendy cord which can be tightened if desired. Great feature.

Other notes I made on this product include the following. They were easy to pair with my iPhone. The sound was excellent. They came with 3 sizes of both earbuds and those wing-shaped pieces that hold the bud in your ear. (By the way, those wing-shaped things were a nice soft rubber not a hard painful plastic as found in other products.) The multi-function button, used to answer/reject calls, start and pause music, is nice and slim and right behind the ear on the right side. As it has in other products recently, 1byOne’s packaging was also noticeably chic. I especially enjoy a product with nice packaging and it also makes me more inclined to give the product as a gift. (I’d give a new one. Not one I’ve already used.)

A Shoe Shaped Church Made To Attract Females

_87726515_glass

You’re looking at a a giant glass slipper that also happens to be a church. It’s located in Chaiyi province of Taiwan, features 320 tinted glass panels, measures 10m (36ft) wide and cost about T$23m (US$686,000 £477,000) to make. Why? According to Pan Tsuei-ping, the administration’s recreation section manager, it was built to attract more women. However, it will not be used for worship, but rather as a venue for pre-wedding photo shoots and wedding ceremonies.

The shoe was inspired by a local story. According to officials in the 1960s, a 24-year-old girl surnamed Wang from the impoverished region suffered from Blackfoot disease. Both of her legs had to be amputated, leading to the cancellation of her wedding. She remained unmarried and spent the rest of her life at a church.
The high heel is intended to honour her memory.

Of course, it’s not every woman who’ll take kindly to this kind of thinking. Online discussions featured comments like this: “What were the authorities thinking when they commission such a hideous-looking building in the area? It’s just disrespectful,” said one user on popular Chinese microblogging site Weibo.

What do you guys think? A shoe shaped church for weddings, good idea or terrible?
