What Are Some Good Sources of Calcium for My Dog?

Why is Calcium Important for Dogs?

Calcium is an essential mineral for dogs and humans alike. It’s responsible for conducting electrical impulses, sending signals, contracting muscles (especially the heart), not to mention keeping those teeth and bones strong.

When dog’s don’t get enough calcium they can suffer the same consequences as us – they need ultimate pet nutrition. Notably the condition rickets (where bones become soft and fragile), muscle twitching, restlessness, stiffness, lethargy, convulsions, and osteoporosis.1

Now, regular canned dog food should contain adequate amounts of calcium. However, like all processed foods, ingredients can also lose their nutritional goodness through processing.

The good news is that this essential mineral is found in so many natural foods. If you’re feeding your pup a raw diet it’s particularly crucial to know what those foods are.

SIXOVERONE Is a Bottle Opener That Can Open 6 Beers At Once

 

How many beers can you open at once? One, maybe two? What are you, a sucker? Think about all the valuable minutes of your life your wasting by opening one beer at a time. You could be using that time to spend with family, or reading more OhGizmo!.

Thankfully, someone made a beer opener that’s the size of a pizza peel (that’s the actual name of that large paddle they use for pizza, who knew?), that can open up to six beers at once. It’s called the SIXOVERONE and It’s designed to fit a standard six-pack of bottles, so you can have your buds ready before anyone has time to second-guess that next beer.

It’s a cool idea, but I’m just not sure how well a stamped piece of metal can hold up against six under-pressure bottles of beer, like from a physics standpoint. Of course, I don’t know how much force is required to remove a bottlecap and whether the force required grows exponentially as the number of bottlecaps increases.

Available on Kickstarter for $25. But seriously, it’s called a pizza peel? All my life I’ve been calling it a paddle.

Hit the jump for more glamour shots of the SIXOVERONE. (BTW, they have better product shots than 90% of the products I see.)

Star Wars ‘Star Destroyer’ Ring is Probably Not For The Financially Responsible

How much do you love Star Wars, a lot? Enough to buy a $450 ring designed to look like a Star Destroyer? Because that’s what geek.jewelry is offering to the biggest and least fiscally responsible Star Wars fans.

I have to say, the ring actually looks really great, and it’s available in combos of Sterling Silver/Cubic Zirconia all the way up to 14k White Gold/Diamonds.

You’d have to be a serious fan to want to spend this much on a piece of Star Wars jewelry though. Like, ‘I know all the words to the original trilogy’ serious. Or, ‘I only watch the movies on original VHS, because it doesn’t have any special effects added’ serious. Or even, ‘I’ve sent death threats to George Lucas over his handling of Jar-Jar Binks, and last year I was convicted of felony harassment, but had my sentence lessened because I cried like hell and told the judge I was super sorry’, serious.

Cool ring though.

Spotify Will Soon Start Selling Makeup

It seems like Spotify is trying to make a little extra dough on the side, as they’re expanding their platform to offer a makeup selection that will be offered on artist Maggie Lindemann’s Spotify page.

Now, Spotify has been allowing artists to connect with their service called Merchbar in order to sell things like posters and band tees, but this is the first time Spotify has allowed an artist to expand beyond that.

What’s next? Is Lady Gaga going to start selling cuts of beef from her dresses, or maybe Taylor Swift is going to sell the posters of Kanye that she been using as dart boards? These are slippery slopes, my friends.

The collection will be available from November 17th, and prices will range from ~$21 for lipsticks to ~$125 for full face palettes.

Of Course That’s A Thing: The Scratch & Sniff Book of Weed

If you’ve ever wanted to smell the Devil’s Herb, but were afraid it would ruin your life, now you can buy a scratch and sniff book devoted to the scent of Mary Jane herself without worrying about going to jail forever. Of course, I’m sure that none of our readers have ever seen a Marijuana up close, but let me tell you it’s dangerous stuff.

The book itself contains 20 different scratch and sniff pads and details the history of Marijuana. Other than just being a book that smells like your uncle’s place, it also goes in-depth into the science of getting the munchies and why Marijuana seems to make music more enjoyable. It even describes different strains of the Chronic.

The book can be pre-ordered now for $18 and will release on 11/18. And just in time for the holiday’s, so it’d make a great gift for that cousin that always carries around that Visine, or your friend that always needs five bucks for Taco Bell.

That’s No Moon: Disney’s Attempt To Hide The Millennium Falcon Fails

 

If you were driving down the M3 outside of London, you may have seen an array of shipping containers. Now, to most people that’s where the story would end as it’d be nearly impossible to get a look inside the array from the ground, but some geniuses decided to use Google Maps and discovered a poor attempt at trying to hide a Millennium Falcon.

It was first spotted in June, and while parts of Star Wars: The Last Jedi were filmed in London, there’s no clear reason why Disney was trying to hide the spaceship. Nonetheless, they completely failed. I mean how hard is it to get a tarp, or two?

The Last Jedi releases on December 15th, but you probably already knew that.

Man Proposes to Girlfriend Using 25 iPhone Xs

You know what they say, the fastest way to a girl’s heart is through 25 iPhone Xs. At least that’s what Chen Ming must’ve heard as the video game developer based in China used 25 of Apple’s latest iPhone to propose to his girlfriend by arranging them into the shape of a heart.

To help with the proposal, Ming had several of his girlfriend’s friends bring her down unknowingly to the spot where he arranged the phones into a heart surrounded by rose petals, before getting down on one knee and popping the question, which she said yes.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a cute story and all, but personally I think he’s crazy for wasting so much money for an outlandish display of love… I mean, clearly he should’ve used no more than 20 iPhone Xs.

Hidden Valley Releasing A 5-Liter Keg of Their Ranch

 

10

Just in time for the holidays, you can get your hands on this 5-liter (that’s 1.3 gallons for real people) keg of Hidden Valley ranch. Yes, it is real, and yes it is a crime against God awesome.

Now, you might be thinking that if Hidden Valley was to make an abomination like a 5-liter keg of ranch dressing, they should’ve done so in early summer. You know, try and get in on that BBQ action. But I say there’s no better time to take out the ranch keg then when the oven dings and grandma’s sugar cookies are done. Pass the cookies and milk my way!

Now I know what you’re thinking and don’t worry, the Hidden Valley 5-liter mini keg is stackable and has a special coating to sure your ranch doesn’t taste like a metal keg.

It’s available now for $50. I know what I want for Christmas!

Learn To Duel Like A Jedi At This Lightsaber Academy

If you’ve ever wanted to learn to fight with a lightsaber you can now take a class that’ll teach you to fight like a real Jedi…if you’re in Singapore.

Each 60 minute class promises to show you the basics to becoming an apprentice Jedi. Now, 60 minutes may seem like a short amount amount of time to learn lightsaber techniques, but just look at Luke, he had almost no training but he saved the day, didn’t he? And Rey has literally no training at all. Basically I’m saying you could become a better Jedi than Rey by flying to Singapore and signing up for a single 60-minute session.

At the end of the class, you get to fight an opponent one-on-one and the winner gets to take the loser’s hand. Oh, and the lightsabers make awesome whooshing noises and light-up, so cool.

Each class costs $25. I suppose it’s more of a fun thing to do with a couple of friends if you’re in the area, but I’m pretty sure I can’t refund a plane ticket to Singapore, so I’ll see you losers when I’m a Jedi Master.
