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 [...]

275-foot tower in Ohio blasted for demolition falls in wrong direction

At first I thought the people in the video were being overcautious when they started to run away. The tower seemed too far away to hurt them. But keep watching. 275-foot tower in Ohio blasted for demolition falls in wrong direction

Twinkie diet helps nutrition professor lose 27 pounds

For 10 weeks, a Kansas State University human nutrition professor ate nothing but sugary snack cakes, candy bars, cookies, sweetened breakfast cereal, and chips. He lost 27 pounds. (He also "took a multivitamin pill and drank a protein shake daily. And he ate vegetables, typically a can of green beans or three to four celery stalks.") For a [...]

Lawsuit of Brunei prince involves life-sized statues of himself having sex

Lawsuit of Brunei prince involves life-sized statues of himself having sex

I am passing along this interesting story about Prince Jefri of Brunei and his explicit sex statues. This is definitely New York’s oddest trial yet starring the scandalous Prince, his former advisers... and graphic life-size bronze statues featuring him and his fiancée practicing the Kama Sutra. The most bizarre thing about Prince Jefri of [...]

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 [...]

PLCB Wants Four Loko Pulled Off Store Shelves

PLCB Wants Four Loko Pulled Off Store Shelves

If you like a little jitter with your buzz, you soon could be out of luck in Pennsylvania. The overlords of all things booze, the PLCB, is asking distributors to stop carrying Four Loko and similar caffeinated malt liquor beverages as concerns grow deeper over the safety of the popular drinks. It’s not an outright ban, mind you, but a polite [...]

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. I have a set of 3 different sizes and have used them for a year. They allow one to rapidly, safely and strongly grip nuts or bolt heads for tightening or loosening. Rapidly: an adjustable crescent wrench [...]

GoldenEye 007 montage shows typical James Bond action

GoldenEye 007's Wii debut is TODAY so it's high time to know what you're getting into. This 007 launch trailer shows just about everything there is to see in the game: It's the usual Bond fare: stealthily invading the bad guy's bases, gunfights, escaping danger, and saving the damsel.  And there's tanks, which are always fun to cause lots [...]

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 [...]

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – Top Horror Flicks of All Time – #3

I can’t remember the first time I saw this flick but it was a while ago, and I was far too young. I remember liking it but one scene really got to me and it would haunt my childhood for years to come. Our heroine of the tale is trying to make it out of the house of horrors alive and I think she’s close. but then we see down a hallway [...]

Christopher Nolan reveals title of third Batman film and that “it won’t be the Riddler”

Christopher Nolan’s third Batman film will be called "The Dark Knight Rises" and though the Gotham City auteur isn’t ready to reveal the villain of his 2012 film, he did eliminate one of the big contenders: “It won’t be the Riddler,” Nolan said in an exclusive interview with Hero Complex.
