Most of us just had a youthful infatuation with Sigourney Weaver but for those among us who are more into the fantastic “world” of Aliens with its weaponry and dazzling sci-fi technology, this book is its own kind of porn.
If you knew your way around the workshop, you wouldn’t need to look at some website list of the Top 10 Tools.

We’re just like you, so this list will steer us all towards toolbox essentials that will keep the household in tip-top shape. We tapped the tool experts at ToolGuyd.com for this list.

It seems like it took a while for manufacturers to wise-up and start making small, portable back-up power supply units. Now they’re dropping left, right, and center.

A bad swing that results in snapping the head off a driver is a golf tradition as old as the game itself. Now these casualties of the game come back to life at the 19th hole. Handmade from real vintage clubs, each bottle opener is one-of-a-kind.
The irony of using your iPhone 4/4s as an “advanced audio device” dissolves when you consider the features packed into the VAMP. The solid metal case contains a 150mW x 2 amplifier, dedicated pure Digital-Analog-Convertor, VQ audio enhancements, optical audio output and a backup battery. Meaning iTunes becomes hi-fiTunes.
Apparently there’s more to magic than macho man Criss Angel’s silly TV tricks. In Fooling Houdini: Magicians, Mentalists, Math Geeks, and the Hidden Powers of the Mind, writer Alex Stone explores the strange and fascinating underground world of magic.
