An Australian mining tycoon is building an exact replica of the original Titanic to be sailed on the original route. However by the time the boat launches in 2016, icebergs will be a thing of the past.
Skateboarding is a popular sport; the amount of Sportos, Dweebies and Wastoids trying to cash in on it could drown a whale. Unfortunately there’s just not enough time in our busy schedule to call every one of these turdburgulars into The Principals Office. Only the darkest and most depraved will have that distinct displeasure. We thought we had our man with the Razor Scooter, but then came the Snakeboard and we knew the layers of crapulence had only been scratched. So we waited, and as we sensed middle America’s thirst for danger being quenched, as countless industrial design students dreamed then gave up on “reinventing the skateboard”, we sat in the shadows patiently, ready at any moment to strike. But now finally it’s here, have you heard? It’s called the Stair Rover and it’s being called into this week’s Principals Office, because well, it sucks.
The 1957 Cadillac Eldorado Brougham had it on lock.
Sometimes the simple ideas work the best.

Newsflash: Architects have given up on designing dynamic-yet-uninhabitable buildings, lower focus to unwearable clothing!
The 3D Printer has long been in use to produce children’s toys or machined parts, so it was only a matter of time before architects latched onto it as the panacea for their collective ignorance. Two recent articles describe the depth of their hubris; via the 3D Printer, architects are now attempting to design anything from Clothes to Moon Bases. Now, we’re all about exploiting advances in technology, heck we’ve been exploited all our lives! But we can smell a fake a mile away, and this shit smacks of “first time at the rodeo-itis”. So for the good of mankind, to absolve us of the collective future sins architects will most definitely commit, 3D Printer we’re calling you into The Principals Office, it’s our only hope!
Charles & Ray Eames show off the lounger and talk about the evolution of the Eames chair on the Arlene Francis “Home” show on NBC.
It’s true, they’re really warm, but what we mean is that the outdoor staple is finding more fashionable ways to make it indoors.
