Your Money or Your Life: Is there really a choice?

  Astute observers of upper-class life commonly quote (or at least paraphrase) Balzac’s observation that behind every great fortune there’s a crime. The phrase endures because, independent of historical context, it seems to express a truth both unsettling and undeniable. All too frequently, reaching the very top of any decent society requires people to bend or break the law. Those careful enough to advance without arousing suspicion join the exclusive ranks of the establishment, but…

Ron de Jeremy Rum

Yes, it’s exactly what you think it is. Hand crafted by 72-year old master distiller Francisco “Don Pancho” Fernandez, Ron de Jeremy Rum ($TBA) is a high-end dark rum that’s oak aged for seven years, resulting in a rich, smooth flavor with hints of vanilla, sugarcane, fruit, and spices, and comes in a bottle with the Hedgehog’s mug on the label. No word yet on whether it has any, ahem, “enhancing” properties. [Thanks, Dennis] Via:…

For Some Powder-Sniffing Party Animals, Age Is No Obstacle by Jamie Johnson January 11, 2011, 6:56 PM At a recent Christmas party in December, I watched a close friend of mine re-enact a depraved but funny maneuver he had seen an elderly man perform earlier that evening.

Rolls-Royce Apparition “concept car”

Design student Jeremy Westerlund has pulled this Apparition concept car out of somewhere extra special, and it manages to meld the past, present, and future of Rolls-Royce into one ridiculously slick package. Like any true Rolls, the Apparition (with its awesomely retro open cockpit) isn’t designed for you to drive. It’s meant for people who have boatloads of money and can afford to hire someone else to drive for them. It may not look like…

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s take on Technology

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Yet, in spite of these spectacular strides in science and technology, and still unlimited ones to come, something basic is missing. There is a sort of poverty of the spirit which stands in glaring contrast to our scientific and technological abundance. The richer we have become materially, the poorer we have become morally and spiritually. We have learned to fly the air like birds and swim the sea…

John Lennon’s Ferrari

We were so close to declaring Infinium Ale from Sam Adams and Weihenstephan the greatest “colliding of universes” item on the market, then we saw this – John Lennon’s 1965 Ferrari 330 GT.  Now, we love a good dry-hopped ale as much as the next guy, but let’s be honest, this ride has it licked.  John Lennon & Ferrari.  Just shortly after the 30thanniversary of the legend’s death, you can own one of the ultimate pieces of…

TUCSON, Ariz. – Summoning the soul of a nation, President Barack Obama on Wednesday implored Americans to honor those slain and injured in the Arizona shootings by becoming better people, telling a polarized citizenry that it is time to talk with each other “in a way that heals, not in a way that wounds.” Following a hospital bedside visit with Rep.
