Map of the Dead

Map of the Dead

If you ever find yourself surrounded by zombies, make sure you have the Map of the Dead bookmarked for quick reference.

The zombie apocalypse survival map includes vital resources like gun stores, pawn shops, military locations, gas stations, hospitals, and cemeteries. It also highlights danger zones, and offers a few suggestions for where you’re most likely to survive.

…St. Pauli has a new Girl, and her name is Katarina Van Derham?

St Pauli Girl Katarina Van Derham

After what must have been a very long and grueling search, St. Pauli has finally found their St. Pauli Girl for 2009, and it’s a “successful print and TV model” named Katarina Van Derham.

In case you were worried that the St. Pauli Girl was going to be anything less than perfect, just be happy to know that Katarina is 5’6” tall with blonde hair and blue-green eyes, is fluent in five languages including English, Slovak, Czech, Russian and Polish, has modeled for Vogue, Marie Claire, FHM and Iron Man, has been featured in ad campaigns for AT&T, Bicycle Casino, Rockstar Energy Drink and Dodge, is trained in Krav Maga, a military self-defense technique, enjoys kick-boxing, wrestling and playing basketball, volleyball and table tennis, and when she’s not modeling, she’s developing her own make-up line and working on architectural graphic design.

Oh, and she looks good in a Bavarian Beer Girl costume. (Holding Photoshopped beers if you look closely at the image above.)

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Iconic Motors GTR?

Iconic Motors GTR 1

The Iconic Motors GTR is the Cobra that Carroll Shelby would probably build today if he had the time and the wealthy client list.

For $600,000, buyers get a carbon fiber supercar that features an 800 horsepower, 420-cubic-inch V8, a very beautiful/custom interior, a display with “military strike fighter” technology, and a “computerized gas cap that slides open like the glass on a moon roof”.

…The SureFire Titan light is bright?

SureFire Titan

With the release of SureFire’s limited edition Titan, a titanium LED flashlight that is the world’s first continuous variable-output LED flashlight, they needed to find a way to market this mini sun beam. What better way, it seems, than to show it off between a set of headlights?

Promotion methods aside, this $500 beauty is quite the light, with military grade build quality, the ability to select from over 1,000 possible light settings from zero to 30 lumens, and a titanium finish that makes this both strong and light. Need I say more?

(You can stop staring at the picture now)

…Gliding can be dangerous?

Combat Glider

It might take millions of dollars and military backing to get into a real dogfight, but with a few dollars and some DIY plane building skills, you can be combat gliding in no time. Combat gliders are scrapped together planes with nine-foot wingspans that use cliff updrafts to stay in the air. They have “no motors, no self-power, and only two simple controls: one flap on each wing. They are made of bamboo sticks, plastic bottle noses, foam board wings and duct tape”. Their scrappy nature makes them virtually indestructible, but you need that kind of dependability when the goal of the hobby is to ram the other planes out of the sky.
