Secret Brooklyn Bridge subway station revealed

Secret Brooklyn Bridge subway station revealed

A once abandoned (or, rather, off limits) subway station from 1908 in Brooklyn is now accessible to the public... and it is beautiful. Beautifully preserved too! The city closed the station in 1945, mostly because at its height only 600 people a day used it, and because the loop created an unsafe gap at the platform. In 1995 the city vowed [...]

Gator Machete Junior

Gator Machete Junior

This Gerber machete has a normal 16" blade on one side and a serrated saw on the other side. I go gold prospecting in very overgrown and brushy areas, so the hollow ground machete blade will take care of the smaller stuff and the saw is right there for the occasional limb or larger brush. This eliminates carrying a saw with me when I [...]

Knipex Pliers Wrenches

Knipex Pliers Wrenches

The Knipex Pliers Wrench is best described in the US as a smooth-faced channel lock plier/wrench. Or, as a pliers-handled crescent wrench.

Bon-Aire Ultimate Hose Nozzle

Bon-Aire Ultimate Hose Nozzle

As an avid gardener I do a lot of hand watering. Nozzles, as a whole, are awful. The levers are hard to hold down, they leak terribly, that don't last long, and the spray patterns are useless. Then I got a Bon-Aire nozzle (I didn't buy it, the company sent it to me.) I was like, oh sure, another nozzle. Rather use my thumb, thank [...]

Smith & Wesson Tactical pens

Smith & Wesson Tactical pens

I spotted the Embassy Pen (top image) over at Uncrate and really dig the minimalist Maglite-esque look of it. It's $38.50 from County Comm. I showed it to Rob and he hipped me to the bad-assness of the Smith & Wesson Military and Police Tactical Pen that's just $26 from Amazon. Now if only I could manage to hang on to a pen for more than [...]

A clever way to use a “worthless” currency

A clever way to use a “worthless” currency

Foreign investment is a tricky game. Not only must a company profit, it also has to transfer the profits home. Companies have done creative things to convert currency, and my favorite example is Pizza Hut in the former Soviet Union: For example, consider the situation faced by Pizza Hut when it wanted to open a chain of restaurants in the [...]
