Hot Dog Earphones — "You haven't heard music until you've heard it through meat"

Screen Shot 2012-11-24 at 10.19.47 PM

Enough of the twee nonsense about which one goes in which ear: just stuff a hot dog in each one and you're money.

These novelty Hot Dog Ear Buds fit snugly in your ears and let everyone else on the bus know that you don't want to talk.

If anyone does try and talk to you, we recommend saying in an overly loud voice, "I can't hear you. I have hot dogs in my ears."

One thing we know for sure is that these ear buds will help you really relish the music.

Completely compatible with your iPod, iPhone, or anything with a 3.5 mm jack.

From the website:


Do you high class snobs think hard working middle class folks don't drink wine?

Well, we've got wine duds that prove different.

Vinderalls, the overalls for your wine, take snooty wine down a peg or two.

Never again will wine consider itself superior to beer.

Vinderalls are for the kind of wine that works with its hands.

Each pair of denim overalls fits most 750 mL bottles of wine and has a tiny pocket in the front for a gift card.

Perfect for gardeners and outdoorsy hipsters!

Details and Features:

• 95% cotton/5% spandex overalls

• Bib pocket hides label of bad vintages


$12 (wine included. Sure. Why not?)

50 Dangerous Things You Should Let Your Children Do


Wrote Kevin Kelly


in Cool Tools:


The idea of this thin book is that danger is something kids need to learn to handle by experience. The 50 small experiments in this book can potentially cause a minor injury (although they are unlikely to), but are never really seriously dangerous. In fact most of them aren't dangerous at all, but at least they are fun. There are no special techniques, secret formulas, or exclusive knowhow here that everyday knowledge or a quick internet search would not turn up. The activities are the kinds of things kids will sometimes do on their own — at least in the past. It's too bad a book like this is needed today, and maybe you, or folks you know, don't need it, but if the kids in your life live a very structured and constantly supervised existence, this is a way to supervise a little danger. The book is designed to be read either by parents or kids. Most activities have clear instructions. We've been going through the book, letting the kids choose. It encourages them to try stuff, and to see the trade-off in risks and gains in many things. Mostly, we use this as a primer for more dangerous things to try later on.
