I was a bit sad to realize that the Super Duke’s engine cannot support any kind of quick shifter.

Apparently, anything that’s made out of wood is good. This is also true of Tokyoflash’s new watch, which appears to be encased completely in wood. It’s all rustic, and ready to go camping!

3D printers are becoming quite popular, and there seems to be no end in sight about the things that they can output. However, this is the first time I’ve heard anything about one that can print makeup.

Choosing the right paint color for rooms in your pad isn’t always easy, because colors do look slightly different when they are actually on walls, and it’s especially hard to get an idea from a few little paint swatches.
