Hazel Chua Website

Hazel graduated with a BS degree in Chemical Engineering, although she secretly wanted to major in journalism. Thank God she never stopped writing because as luck and a whole lot of work would have it, a couple of tech blogs took her on, more came a-knocking, and now she's got the best of both worlds: crunching numbers throughout the day while writing about all sorts of crazy gear at night.

50 Cent Hidden Blade Coin– Can Your Half Dollar Do This?

Not all coins are created equal. Specifically, this particular one that hides a weapon within it. Who knew something so small and discrete could hold a blade inside?

Split the coin down the middle to reveal the blade and use as you please, whether it’s to cut some rope or slice some stuff. Use with caution and make sure you separate it from your other coins though. Otherwise, you might end up spending it and throwing over thirty bucks out the door for something else that’s only worth fifty cents.

That’s where the SteakStones come in, Each one comes with a plate to hold the slab of Lava Stone. Throw the stone into the oven and heat it to 300°C and 350°C before putting it back onto the tabletop set it came with. Then bring out the meat, butter, salt and pepper, and get ready to cook your steak to perfection.

Mmm-hmm!
