Is This Beer Really Worth $200 A Bottle?

It's tricky to argue about what something's worth, because there's rarely an objective answer. A few baseball teams are currently debating whether Pablo Sandoval, a charming fat man who hits very well in the playoffs and a bit above average the rest of the time, is worth $90 million dollars for the next five years.… » 11/20/14 3:09pm 11/20/14 3:09pm

The Future of Sports Tech Involves Shrimp

Why do characters in video games get all the coolest toys? Y'know, raccoon suits, sonic booms, hyperdrive. Or a Nanosuit like the one in EA's Crysis 3 that provides armor, super strength, invisibility, and a means to interface with computers and weapons.

A Report From The Luckiest Man Alive: Christina Hendricks Taught Me All…

I have a great appreciation for fine whisky, but I am no means an expert on the subject.
