…The Grawlix is #@$&ing cool?

Grawlix

You know the string of symbols that come out of a cartoon character’s mouth every time they swear?

Apparently it’s called a Grawlix.

Mort Walker (the Beetle Bailey cartoonist) coined the term around 1964, and though the Oxford English Dictionary doesn’t officially recognize it as a word, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t start using it every chance you get.

#@&%?$!

…Nike’s Mercurial Vapor SLs are amazing?

Nike Mercurial Vapor SL

Though I couldn’t find much in the way of official information, it doesn’t take a press release to know that these shoes are special.

Called the Nike Mercurial Vapor SL, they are made of nearly 100% carbon fiber, and weigh just 6.7 ounces.

It took Nike three years to design and produce the shoe, and features include an outsole plate made from seven layers of carbon composite material interwoven with TPU and polyurethane, a molded carbon fiber upper, and an internal carbon fiber chassis for “instant acceleration”.

Plus, if Cristiano Ronaldo approves them, then who are you to say otherwise?
