TurboCool – Chill Your Beer in a Minute Flat                                                                                                        

Technology is headed in the right direction. People are taking steps to rid the world of warm beer and dreadful wait times. TurboCool is a new product that is currently looking for funding on kickstarter. The concept behind the design cools a can quickly by spinning the can in ice and water. The vortex created by rushing the ice cold water around the can cools down the beverage in no time. The makers of TurboCool are looking to raise $150,000 for production costs and what not and in exchange they will be able to launch a product that could help limit the need for bulky ice chests and clear up some fridge space.

A simple $31 pledge will score you your very own turbocool if the project hits it’s goal.

 

*I say we make a earth-unfriendly version and hook this bitch up to a car battery and cut the time in half!

 VIDEO GAMES 


(CNN) -- Reacting to "feedback from the Xbox community," Microsoft is appearing to reverse course and change two key components to policies for its new Xbox One video game console.

All disc-based games can be played without ever connecting online, and the 24-hour connection requirement has been dropped, according to an update to a May post concerning questions about the new device, due to be released this fall.

Additionally, there will be no limitations to using and sharing games, Don Mattrick, president of the Interactive Entertainment Business division, says in the post. People will be able to share, trade or resell their games in the same way they do for Xbox 360 games.

Could The LEGO Movie be the greatest film of all time?

New Trailer hits the net with massive applause. i09

 

No clue when we'll see a big-screen Justice League movie — but we're seeing Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman on the big screen next year. Along with one of the Mutant Ninja Turtles and some NBA All Stars. Check out this astounding trailer!

The LEGO Movie has pretty much everybody in it, and it's directed by the brilliant Chris Miller and Phil Lord, who brought you Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and 21 Jump Street. And, judging from this trailer, it's as funny as all hell.

 

Here's the synopsis:

The original 3D computer animated story follows Emmet, an ordinary, rules-following, perfectly average LEGO minifigure who is mistakenly identified as the most extraordinary person and the key to saving the world. He is drafted into a fellowship of strangers on an epic quest to stop an evil tyrant, a journey for which Emmet is hopelessly and hilariously underprepared.

NYC Realtor Lists Gorgeous $2000 Loft Located Inside Spacious Penis

A Manhattan real estate agent inadvertently exposed more than the beautiful brickwork inside a $2000 Upper West Side apartment he listed Friday, when he uploaded a photograph of a large* penis alongside shots of a sunny living room and renovated kitchen as part of an online listing.

When contacted by Gawker, the agent said he was not aware a photo of a penis had been posted with one of his apartment listings. He politely denied the penis was his and speculated that his account had been hacked. (ATTENTION HACKERS: Stop hacking into real estate agents' work emails and posting pictures of a random penis on one of their apartment listings. Rude.)

 

According to the listing, the penis apartment boasts high ceilings, stainless steel appliances, and a decorative fireplace. The dignified building which houses the penis apartment was erected in 1899. No pets are allowed in the penis apartment.

The photograph of the penis has since been removed from the penis apartment photo album.

Minnesota mother, son accused of stealing frozen gopher feet

PRESTON, Minn., June 19 (UPI) --

A mother and son face theft charges after a

southeastern Minnesota trapper reported thousands

of gopher feet missing from his freezer, a court complaint said.

 

Tina Marie Garrison, 37, and her son, Junior Lee Dillon, 18,

of Preston were charged with felony and misdemeanor theft

counts after a trapper in Granger reported nearly $5,000

in gopher feet, used as bounty to claim government rewards

to help reduce the gopher population, missing,

Rochester's Post-Bulletin reported Wednesday.

 

The payment rate is $3 per pair of feet submitted,

the newspaper noted.

Garrison pleaded not guilty and is awaiting trial.

Dillon awaits a July 29 hearing.

Dillon turned in $1,014 worth of feet in November and

Garrison $3,780 in December, figures the

Harmony Township clerk said was unusually high.

Garrison claimed at the time she and her son had been

saving the feet for three years.



Man Charged with DUI...On Shopping Cart



FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A 63-year-old man was pulled over and arrested for allegedly driving a motorized shopping cart while under the influence of alcohol.  A grocery store employee called police after seeing the suspect, Merrill Moses, drive into parking lot traffic. When an officer arrived at the scene, an employee was holding onto the cart so that Moses could not escape.

A preliminary test came back showing the suspect’s breath-alcohol at about four times the legal limit.  

In addition to DUI, Moses was charged with shoplifting and refusing to take an official sobriety test.  His basket contained unpaid items including chocolate chip cookies and Betty Crocker cake mix.

According to the News-Miner, the suspect has a long criminal record including a previous DUI conviction, as well as convictions for domestic assault, drinking in public, open container, criminal trespass and theft.

Moses has apparently driven motorized shopping carts while intoxicated numerous times in the past and would attempt to run over any employee who tried to stop him.

The average speed of a motorized shopping cart is roughly 5 mph
