Hip Hop Playing Cards

20120909-083052.jpg

When the playing cards come out its either a wax coated all singing all dancing pack I acquired from a casino in Vegas or my mate brings out the dog eared set showcasing 70’s Nanna’s & Grandad’s having sexy time (you know who you are)…..Not any more!!! These Hip Hop Playing Cards are all awesome. Each card in the deck features a hip hop icon drawn by Sayori Wada ready for you to bust out on your next straight or royal flush. Just avoid the temptation to break out some lyrics when you lay one of them down.

Mercedes Benz G-Class History Video

The Mercedes-Benz G-Class has offered 4-wheel drive functionality along with a boxy, workmanlike aesthetic since the late 1970s, and a new video from the German luxury automaker traces the history of a true automotive icon. The G-Class began as a military vehicle initially requested by the Shah of Iran, and is now a “cult item” with a dedicated fan club and loyal customer base who want to see it remain that way. The video features some of the G’s historic exploits, as well as interviews with designer Volker Leutz and head of Mercedes-Benz Classic Michael Bock, who discuss updating the G-Class while staying true to its roots. Check it out below.

Montie Gear Y-Fork Catapult

Catapults or Sligshots for our American cousins aren’t just for kids — they can also be deadly weapons, perfectly suited to situations where you might have run out of ammo for your other options. The Montie Gear Y-Fork Slingshot is a prime example. Designed by Uncrater Nicholas Pennington, it features an aluminum frame that’s powdercoated or anodized depending on color, a tapered Thera-Band Gold flat band with a 16-pound pull and 28-inch draw, a leather pouch assembly for securely holding ammo up to a 0.5-inch ball bearing or .44 cal lead ball, and a paracord-wrapped handle for comfo.
