…3Z Scale’s Bulldog lets your ride on your R/C truck?

Bulldog R/C

On its own, a 1/3 scale remote controlled truck is pretty awesome, but when you add in the fact that when you’re done controlling it with a remote, you can attach a set of handle bars and actually ride the thing around, it becomes a definite must have for any kid, or any adult that’s still a kid at heart.

The Bulldog R/C Rider features a 110cc four-stroke engine, disc brakes, automatic transmission, independent suspension, aluminum wheels and a 2.4 GHz radio transmitter, and is more than four feet long and weighs nearly 200 pounds.

Sadly, the remote control function is disabled as soon as a rider hops on, but I’m sure there’s an easy way to hack that little safety feature for some really good times!

…Beauty pageants are dangerous?

Ingrid Marie RiveraThis story is almost too good to be true: During this year’s Miss Puerto Rico pageant, Ingrid Marie Rivera managed to win, despite having her gown and make-up spiked with pepper spray.

Though composed onstage, Marie had to run backstage and strip off her clothes to apply ice bags to her face and body as she swelled up and broke out in hives twice during the competition.

Need a bit of extra excitement to add to the movie script?

Due to a bomb threat, officials had already postponed the last day of the pageant to ensure everyone’s safety.

Who knew the world of beauty could be so deadly?

…It’s Things Thursday: Puppoose?

Puppoose

The Puppoose is “the most ergonomically designed, natural way to carry your pet. The luxuriously lightweight, soft fabric makes using this carrier a breeze! The Puppoose fits any small dog and any person! Its crocheted design has 4 holes at the base for the pet’s limbs, 4 adjustable straps to adjust the length, a neck cushion for your comfort, and a safety strap to ensure your pet’s security. Its hands-free convenience allows more quality time together!”

If you just read that and thought, “Wow, I’ve been trying to find more ways to spend quality time with my dog!” then maybe the Puppoose is for you, but then again, maybe you should check your sanity fluid at the next stop. I understand wanting to be close to your dog and all, but do these dogs look happy?

Despite my warnings, if this looks like the perfect gift for your furry friend, they’re $80 from Feel The Flo.
