$99 - $249 from Pro-Defense »

Designed originally for law enforcement and military use, Pro-Defense calls their F4 Tactical rail-mounted pepper spray the non-lethal alternative. Which I take to mean getting hit by a solid stream of it is still going to...

$6,495 - $8,775 from Schiller »

I used to see this dude pedaling around a lake near where I live on a water bike. He always had his Westie dog with him, riding in a milk crate attached to the front. Like a Bizarro World Dorothy and Toto. I don't think his bike was a Schiller X1 though. More like a couple of buoys rigged to an old Schwinn 10-speed....

$42.95 - $149.95 from Onnit »

On the list of things that would really suck: 1) Finding your head on the receiving end of a 72-pound kettlebell with an incensed gorilla face carved into it; 2) Finding your head on the receiving end of a 500-pound incensed gorilla face. I guess I'd take the kettlebell if given the choice. At least the behavior of iron is more predictable than that of the king of apes. One blunt impact and lights...

$79 from Cole-Bar »

Although I enjoy calling people tools, I don't really understand how the term came to be an insult. Aren't tools generally helpful and beneficial to the cause of man, as opposed to the burdens of dead-weight idiocy implied...
