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.

Damn, This is Cool: This Ain’t a War Plane…It’s a Car!

So this is a plane that isn't exactly a plane. It's actually a car that was modded and dressed up to look like a French Mirage warplane, and in a word, it's awesome. You'll find it on the roads of Lebanon, in the village of Kfar Tebnit, to be specific. It was put together by Ali Faikh who automatically earns a spot on our list of all-time bad-asses because transforming a car into a freakin' plane is quite a feat in itself!

It took Ali four hours a day over a period of four months, and the results are well worth it.

Craziest Selfie Ever? One Wrong Step and You Die, Dude! (VIDEO)

Watch Video

The dude in the video is Daniel Lau, and he's chilling on top of a skyscraper with two of his buddies like it's something that people do everyday. He also takes a selfie--or is that a we-fie?--at one point, and while the shot is all sorts of amazing, it's also enough to make dudes who are afraid of heights queasy.

Word of advice: If you want to live until you're old and gray, you're better off removing this from your bucket list. With all that news about people dying while in the act of taking a selfie, it truly ain't worth it. #Word

Only the most serious of beermen are worthy of owning one of these Beer Briefcases.

And unless your boss has x-ray vision, then he'll be none the wiser and might actually be impressed that you're taking your job more seriously.

Strictly B.Y.O.B. though--Bring Your Own Beer. Don't leave home without it.

The Pants Shirt: One Pair Up, One Pair Below

Grow a pair, they always say. Well, you can do better than that and wear a pair instead. But why stop at one? With the Pants shirt, you can wear two pairs instead. I know, I know, the former refers to balls so it doesn't make sense to wear two pairs of jeans, but why should it?

The Pants shirt has a pair of pants printed on it. It won't make you a fashion icon but it's a great conversation starter that might just let you take someone else's pants off tonight... If you get lucky, that is.

Pretty Amazing: Spider-Man Gear Shift Knob

Spider-Man doesn't drive because he gets places faster with his web, but Peter Parker does. He probably won't get one of these Spider-Man gear shift knobs for his car because it might give his identity away, but you can. And you'll wish so hard that others will think you're Spidey because he's awesome as heck, but, well, he ain't real, so that's that...

Nonetheless, it's an awesome (and easy!) way to decorate the insides of your car. What better way than to add Spidey to your stick shift?
