Weird Products: Underground Beer Storage


From Perpetually Indignant:

12Food & Wine:

Whenever the apocalypse does happen and all of our favorite bars and eateries are gone, it's probably going to be really boring. But like the pre-apocalypse, the best way to kick back, relax and pass the time is with a nice cold drink. That's where Biersafe comes in. It's a bunker for your beer that can keep sixteen bottles safe and cold underground.

Okay, so maybe the apocalypse isn't the only reason you'd want to bunker up your beer. Maybe your greedy roommates are always taking the beer you were saving in the fridge. Maybe you're just looking to work a little more ecofriendliness into your life. Maybe it's a question of your electricity bill; according to Biersafe's makers, switching your beer storage option from a mini fridge to a biersafe can save you 80 Euro (about 90 U.S. dollars) per year on electricity.

Geeky Wedding Cake Fail: Harry Potter or Halloween?



This Geeky Wedding cake is billed as a "Stunning Harry Potter Wedding Cake" Um...after all the cakes we've been seeing, I beg to differ. Besides looking very generic with some non descript leaf and flower adornments, the second tier of the cake doesn't exactly look like a scene from Harry Potter! WTF? A Halloween witch flying to her haunted house under a witch's moon?  From Hongkiat



Shopping Gets Awkward For RHUer


Carolanne sitFrom: Amorinth

This happened a few years ago.

I took my younger brother to the store with the red bullseye to buy him some shoes. He was eight or nine at the time.

Some genius at the store thought it would be a brilliant idea to put the little boys' shoes right next to the women's lingerie section. Now, I don't have a problem with kids seeing underwear, but there was no reason they couldn't have put the women's shoes next to the lingerie.

Needless to say, it was a very awkward shopping trip.
