Control your sprinklers before they control youBefore I got my Rachio I had separate sprinklers hooked up to 34 different hoses, each connected to a different source of water. One even went to the toilet. But now I can let the Rachio do all the work while I go submerge my body in a ditch full of warm honey in peace. Thanks Rachio! You're my best friend! Heck, my only friend!
Mon, 27 Mar 2017 05:00:00 ZUPDATE: We fixed the poll. Go vote again if you haven't already!! Happy Music Monday! For those who don't know, each year we do a special March Bracket Event on our site. This year Scott's been forced honored with the keys to the event. We call it... MUSIC MADNESS!! At the top of March, we posted 64 one-hit wonders. Now it's all down to these four. You might even call them... The Last Four! You could call them something else too but our lawyers advised us not to use another name. When you're done reading the list, head to our Facebook poll and fight between the decades. We'll have the results (and the Championship) on Wednesday and the big wrap-up announcement on Friday! But for now... Let's get hype! Zombie Nation - Kernkraft 400 After the fall of Gary Glitter, only one band was able to take his place in the world of sporting hype. Zombie Nation is the proof that sometimes, all you've gotta do is be in the right place at the right time. Now everyone knows their song, even if almost no one knows their name. The perfect song to get us excited for the list of LAST FOUR one-hit wonders! What, you expected us to just post without a crowd warmup? Do you even KNOW how Championships work? Sheesh. You'd think you never watched sports before! Anyway, Last Four coming up after the jump, and then you'll need to go and cast your vote on our Facebook poll. '70s Bracket Champion: Wild Cherry - Play That Funky Music Everybody behind the scenes was SURE that King Harvest had it locked down! How could such a thing happen? Maybe it's the residual power of Vanilla Ice? Or maybe funk just beats mellow when it comes to MUSIC MADNESS. '90s Bracket Chamption: The Proclaimers - 500 Miles One got knocked down and won't get up again. One wants to be the song that walked to the Championship. Can The Proclaimers pull it off? 80's Bracket Champion: Dexy's Midnight Runners - Come On Eileen At this moment, they've won everything... in their bracket. Now Dexy's steps forward to battle again. If they can win twice, they'll prove the dominance of the '80s over all one-hit wonders! '00s Bracket Champion: Fountains Of Wayne - Stacy's Mom She's got it going on over all the other '00s hits. But can she take it farther? Or is this where the crush dissolves? Good luck to all the Bracket Champions as they enter the LAST FOUR Now it's gonna be all up to you, Dear Reader. Rush over to our Facebook page and start voting now! Your votes determine the final head-to-head! We'll announce them on Wednesday and then get ready! Because next week at this time we'll announce THE GREATEST ONE-HIT WONDER OF ALL! Let us just remind you: some images come from the corresponding Wikipedia page and are here under fair use. Next stop: The Music Madness Championship! [...]

Do you believe in magic?
If you asked a magical wizard about these underwear, he'd probably be like, "Hey! I'm a magical wizard! Don't you have anything more important you wanna ask me about than underwear?!?"
But if you ask an underwear expert about these underwear, he'll probably say, "These underwear are magical." And that's how you know that underwear experts were the true magical wizards all along.
Also, a quick disclaimer: the underwear expert would be using the word "magical" in a non-literal sense here. These underwear don't have any actual magic powers. That we know of.

What's the last thing that's NOT connected to the Internet? Cookware!
Your TV? Internet-ready. Your wall clock? Internet-ready. Your washer? Your fridge? Your beehive? Your doorbell? Your water cooler? Your coffee maker? Your dog collar? Your sunglasses? The can of pumpkin pie mix you bought at the local farmer's market? ALL OF THESE AND MORE connect to the Internet now that we are in the 21st Century!
But cookware? Cookware is still just what it always was: a tool that stands alone. Add food, apply elbow grease, follow recipe, eat. That's just how they worked back when "e-" wasn't a prefix. You don't have to worry that your pans are going to post your secrets to Facebook or that you'll get spam-tweets to your saucepan. You can just enjoy living IRL for a small amount of time, and enjoy the fruit of your labors.
And then, as you eat, you can surf the web. It's about balance, you know?
