Remember a young actress named Chiaki Kuriyama? Sure you do. She played Gogo Yubari, the mace-wielding bodyguard who dressed like a Japanese schoolgirl in Kill Bill Volume I.

We just got the Sport model of the EPIKGO hoverboard at my office. Besides being terribly chic, it’s apparently bulletproof.
Bamboo has lots of uses beyond just being panda food. Things like bikes, roads, scaffolding, and musical instruments are made from the fast-growing grass. But unless you are participating in a tropical-themed LARP, you probably wouldn’t want a shirt made from bamboo stalks. So why do bamboo bed sheets make any sense? Because yarn extracted from […]
