Live and Let Dyson

On cleaning day, I like to don my favorite blood-colored (red) headband and strap my Dyson V6 Trigger Handheld Vacuum to my arm with electrical tape so I feel like an immaculate warrior protecting my collection of Spanish credenzas from common household dust. While I do battle, I also play the soundtrack to Titanic at full volume. Those emotional swells make me work harder as I fight through my tears to keep my domicile clean. Then when I'm done, I rip off the electrical tapeAAAARRRG OW OW OW NO IT'S COOL I FEEL FINE OH WOW OUCH OUCH

The Debunker: Do Airplanes Dump Frozen Waste in Flight?

November is here, and you know what that means—National Aviation History Month! Yes, like all good citizens, you undoubtedly wait all year for this fun-filled celebration of great achievements in the history of flight. But as you get together with loved ones during this festive flight-themed season, we want to make sure you don't perpetuate any myths and misconceptions. Ken Jennings, high-flying Jeopardy! whiz, is here all month to correct a lot of common aviation knowledge that's just plane wrong.

The Debunker: Do Airplanes Dump Frozen Waste in Flight?

When Charles Lindbergh made his historic trans-Atlantic flight and met all the crowned heads of Europe, Britain's King George V had a question. "There is one thing I long to know," he said. "How did you pee?" Lindbergh, put at ease by the question, let His Majesty in on the secret: he had a funnel attached to an aluminum container, which he dropped somewhere over the French countryside. "I was not going to be caught with the thing on me at Le Bourget (Airport)!" he said.

Lindbergh's emergency evacuation was just the first in a long line of close encounters with airborne waste. There have been dozens of news stories documenting the phenomenon of "blue ice"—frozen waste falling from commercial airline toilets. Sometimes the frosty biowaste tears holes in roofs and smashes cars. On TV's Six Feet Under—though never in real life—a woman was even killed by a falling chunk of blue ice. Media accounts of these incidents often include words like "jettisoned" or "ejected," because someone in the newsroom assumed that the pilot accidentally pulled a Lindbergh and opened the tanks in mid-air.

In fact, commercial airliners have no mechanism for pilots to flush the sewage tank mid-flight. In the 1980s, airplane toilets mixed human waste with hundreds of gallons of a blue disinfectant called Anotec, the same stuff they use in Port-a-Potties. Occasionally a holding tank would leak, and a gross blob of poopsicle would freeze onto the exterior of the plane. As the plane descended to land, the ice would thaw and fall, posing a hazard to the plane itself or to residents below. So, in 1982, Boeing began to install those vacuum suction toilets we still use today. These new, more reliable systems aren't prone to "blue ice" leaks. The FAA still receives complaints of weird-smelling stuff tearing through houses, but they've found that these complaints tend to spike in the fall. Their theory: migrating birds are the most common falling-poop culprit nowadays.

Are you ready for Girl Scout Cookie Season? Not if you don't have this video doorbell!

As humans, it's natural for us to be territorial about our home. We've evolved to be defensive, and secretive about the inner workings of our domicile. This is why we are often annoyed by people coming door to door to try and sell us something. There is of course an exception- Girl Scouts and their cookies. How can you be sure who's knocking on your door though? Easy- this doorbell by ZModo

you don't need a bunch of wires to RAWK

Imagine: you're having a party. People are dancing. Drinks are shaking. What don't you need? That's right, you don't need wires going everywhere and you don't need a turntable that will skip. What you DO need is a little Bluetooth device that can play all the tunes you've got on your phone, and the phone of all the strangers who snuck in just to get free booze. Which we've got right here. No, not the booze.




Dell Latitude 12.3" Intel i7 512GB Tablet w/KB

Freak out your coworkers by dramatically ripping this laptop in half during a meeting!

FACT: Latitude and Longitude exist as part of a geographic coordinate system to help people who are bad at spelling keep up with locations. So instead of writing "Winnemucca, Nevada" which is very difficult to spell, you can simply put 40.9730° N, 117.7357° W. I think we can all agree that this is much easier to spell and remember. Oh, by the way, please purchase this tablet thing. Thanks.
