Across many sports, from basketball to football, Adidas’ adizero technology has made for some lighter-than-ever shoe releases lately. The freshest is the Feather, a shoe Adidas is touting as “the lightest everyday running shoe” they’ve ever made. At just 6.9 ounces, it’s pretty much nothing. So, if you needed another reason not to buy those weird wetsuit-bootie-barefoot-toe-slipper things, now you’ve got one.
If you don’t pass out or vomit on the elevator ride up, you’ve probably got what it takes to strap in and hang out on the edge of Toronto’s CN tower—over 1100 feet off the ground. What’s 1100?

Long, stressful days spent plugged into the matrix can make it almost impossible to unwind and fall asleep. Soothing music or nature sounds played as you summon the sandman can help.

If movie-time for you means a complete vacation from reality for 2-hours, Dark City could be worthy. Of course you also have to be down with a dark, comic-book style hero playing the lead.

The tit-for-tat battle between the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro is about to kick in to gear again. When the 2012 Camaro ZL1 hits the pavement early next year juiced up with it’s 550-horse, 6.2-liter, six-speed 8, those Mustang dudes with the new Boss 302 are gonna start sweating.
If these Beastie Boys action figures were a penny less than the $750 price-tag, it would be a little sad wouldn’t it? Like, if they were at K-mart for $6.99 they’d suck. You’d be like, damn the Beastie’s musta hit the skids. But nope, those 3 rich-ass, groundbreaking white dudes are donating the proceeds of this limited edition collection to children’s cancer charities.

Yes, you can let the kids play with them but you don’t necessarily have to.
