Texting on a Motorcycle!??!?

Caution! There is a semi-audible F-bomb in this video.

Honestly, I don’t know whats funnier,  Bollywoods version of Cheech and Chong in the car or the dude on the bike.

Either way, I hope his life insurance premium is paid up.

“He’s doing it all Bro!………..Yo what!”


Useful? No. Gadget or Gizmo? Maybe. Funny? Yep!

Think that Diet Coke/Mentos thing is a good idea?

Xantrex Technologies 852-2071 Xpower AC/DC Powerpack Solar With 400 Watt Inverter.


I have the Xantrex Technologies 852-2071 Xpower AC/DC Powerpack and am impress with how long it can power my large and very old Sony 29 inch TV. On a full charge it will power the TV for about an hour. It’s a great tool to have for emergencies. The downside is that it takes quite a few days where I live to get a full charge from the solar panel. It would be great for camping.

Features include…….

  • Runs 120-volt AC or 12-volt DC products anywhere
  • Built-in 400-watt inverter
  • Two 120-volt AC outlets, one 12-volt DC socket and one USB port
  • Three-digit display for easy battery status monitoring
  • AC charger included so you can charge from a standard wall outlet

Price $119-$199
