Cool prod­ucts

Hot Dog Stuffed Pizza

There cer­tain­ly might be more impor­tant things to blog about, but noth­ing at the moment seems quite as sat­is­fy­ing as the “Hot Dog Stuffed Piz­za” on offer to the cit­i­zens of the UK.  I think the pic­ture says it all.  … Con­tin­ue read­ing

IFlop? Bad iPad3 reviews a significant first

I haven’t said much about all things Apple on my blog thus far… and maybe I should have.  The “curat­ed” appli­ca­tion expe­ri­ence has many hid­den con­sumer pit­falls includ­ing loss of pri­va­cy, but loss of con­trol over our own com­put­er devices … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Household Airbags

I remem­ber being a fan of Super Dave Osbourne when I was a kid.  In many ways he filled in the self-inflict­ed pain humor that Wile E. Coy­ote did for a gen­er­a­tion before.  I recall at one point (and I’m … Con­tin­ue read­ing

The Grunt Factor

There have been sev­er­al shows that have shaped my idea of the sil­ly and cool things men do, but one of the very best was “Home Improve­ment” which fea­tured Tim Allen play­ing Tim (The Tool­man) Tay­lor.  Inside the show, Tim … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Gas Powered Drink Blender

Some­times a prod­uct comes along and you know that they’re just try­ing to goad some­one for publicity’s sake.  In fact, it would appear that these have been banned in Cal­i­for­nia.  The Gas Pow­ered Blender pic­tured here is pow­ered by a … Con­tin­ue read­ing

NCC-1701 Pizza Wheel

Nev­er write a blog post before it’s time.  Or some­thing like that.  Any­ways… I was brows­ing The Escapist when I came across their post­ing regard­ing the Talk­ing Cave Jon­son Paint­ing which led me to the list of quotes that the … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Edible Lockout Locks … Environmentally Friendly?

Two Lab­Safe­ty posts in a row?  I just had to con­tin­ue here.  We’re going to be talk­ing about green locks that are red.  Real­ly.
Accord­ing to the descrip­tion, these lock­out locks are green because a) they con­tain no PVC and b) … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Lockout Elements of a Good Hoodwink

It seems that the core ele­ments of a good scam include items that make you seem very legit­i­mate.  It struck me look­ing at this prod­uct image that Lab Safe­ty is an excel­lent source of decep­tion mate­r­i­al for indus­tri­al espi­onage sim­ply … Con­tin­ue read­ing

While I rumi­nate on my Deus Ex: Human Rev­o­lu­tion expe­ri­ence, I have some new lab safe­ty prod­ucts to talk about … hand­i­ly deliv­ered to my inbox.  I’m think­ing of call­ing my Deus Ex posts some­thing along the lines of “I … Con­tin­ue read­ing

LabSafety: Video Borescope

I had some idea that prod­ucts like the Extech Video Borescope exist­ed, but as usu­al, I didn’t know where I might find one until Lab Safe­ty dropped a note in my inbox.  I find their mis­sives help­ful because they solve … Con­tin­ue read­ing
