It could body-double as a Lotus and appears to have the snout of an Aston Martin, but this new two-door coupe is a Jaguar. Another surprise, the C-X75 supercar is electric powered by Lithium-Ion batteries and two ultra-efficient electric motors. It’ll go 560 miles on a full charge, but not if you keep it pinned at its top speed of 205 mph.
Genius-psychopath, Ted Kaczynski, aka the Unabomber, is locked-up in a federal pen and will never get out. The rogue terrorist, whose decades long bombing spree injured 23 people and killed 3, was eventually taken down in a massive FBI sting. Now, US Marshals are auctioning off his personal effects with proceeds going to the victim’s families. His famous hoodie, aviators and even the typewriter used to write his bizarre manifesto are all up for grabs. Looks like the Smithsonian wasn’t interested.

George Carlin was the funniest white dude in the history of comedy. For forty years, his stand-up shows, with razor-sharp wit & taboo content, were making crowds piss themselves. Carlin also wrote three best-selling books. Now, all three: When Will Jesus Bring the Pork Chops?, Napalm and Silly Putty, and Brain Droppings have been bundled into one. Call it a George Carlin bible. He would have.

The net is made of heavy gauge stainless steel. The Henge brand works with cities to place these tables in public parks.

This slick little aircraft is just a helicopter, right? Actually, it’s not. It’s a gyroplane, which combines the propeller of a heli with a fixed-wing rotor in the tail. A centrifugal effect from the rotor makes for smooth, stable flights even in high winds. But here’s the key—in the event of engine failure, you can still perform a controlled landing. That’s way better than exploding on impact. This new model offers side-by-side seating, an upgrade from earlier in-line designs, giving the passenger a much better view.
