Sony's game console comes in a box 19 inches long, 13 inches wide, and just over 4 inches thick. It does not fit in your pants, as Floridian Christopher Caldwell learned to his dismay.
A security guard at a Port St. Lucie Walmart told police that he saw Caldwell, 36, not only "sticking the PlayStation 4 in his pants" but stuffing in accessories, too. When he left the store without paying for the gear, he was stopped. Mr. Caldwell now faces a charge of felony grand theft.

Harem pants, often worn by belly dancers, also fit the bill. A November 2012 article in “Vanity Fair” talks of Justin Beiber’s affinity for harem pants and describes them as “a supremely unflattering style of trousers that droop above the knee like an oversize diaper before tapering down to the ankle.”

Between all of our apps, streaming devices, Bluetooth speakers, and energy-sucking decorations, paying for utilities each month can be…brutal. In fact, the average household spends roughly $70 a month on the water bill alone. That number might not seem terribly significant, but when you add it up, that’s $840 a year — a pretty significant […]
Seems like no matter what kind of wireless earbud you buy, you’re sacrificing something: Sound for longevity, battery life for durability, the list goes on. Finally, it seems like the tech is starting to come together for the full package in a few newer models. Case in point: These PaMu Slide Bluetooth 5 In-Ear Headphones. […]
