There is no possible way you’ll miss with a gift of any of the styles of socks Blue Q has. You’ll find something special for everyone you know with their variety of designs, which feature funny panoramic art and have no left and right sock. The art is everywhere, and it is clever.
We know first hand how good the Land Rover Discovery is good at towing things – we shot the video they used of the snow-bound 18-wheeler being towed by one. But we didn’t know it could pull a 121-ton, 328 ft road train like this Discovery HSE Td6 recently did in Australia.
We had a chance to listen to Pioneer’s new Z series car speakers during our visit to their factory, and they sounded truly stellar, with zero distortion, huge dynamic range, and brilliant reproduction that’s on par with some of the best home audio systems we’ve heard.
Sight, smell, touch, taste, hearing. We’ve had it engrained our whole lives that those are THE five human senses, but there are many other things we can detect that don’t tie to an obvious sensory organ. Vox delves into some of our abilities which didn’t make the short list.
Blackfish shows us how to create a really cool toy weapon which fires rolled up paper projectiles. Its rubber band powered revolver mechanism lets it fire up to eight darts without reloading. We assume you could expand on the idea and make one that fires more ammo.

Streetwear has moved on to cropped dad slacks, and elephant jeans are biding their time. But athleisure endures in the latest drop from Adidas By Kolor. The Hybrid Pants put a tech wear twist to track pants using Adidas’ breathable fabric on its roomy crotch.
“John fled from Karl and Hans but alas! He had to run barefoot over sharp, broken glass.” Celebrate a great holiday classic with Doogie Horner and J.J. Harrison’s illustrated version of Bruce Willis and Alan Rickman’s 1988 action flick, done up in a sort of Golden Books style.
Ever since Disney took over Star Wars, we’re getting at least a movie a year from the franchise. But one film that’s not currently on the docket is Pistol Shrimps‘ side story, in which Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum must destroy the Death Star after it blows up the White House.
If you’ve never seen anything simultaneously dreamy and gritty, take nine minutes to watch New York-based Aurélien Heilbronn’s Street Racers, a short film documenting the highly dangerous and illegal motorbiking culture in the Dominican Republic. Beautifully shot.
