As you might have already heard, there was a new proposal in California to carve the state into six different states. The idea is to satisfy a variety of political issues that come up with such a huge state, but it seems pretty unlikely. Nonetheless, the idea got us thinking, so here are the six states we'd carve out of New York.
1. New Amsterdam (current Times Square)
Okay, hear us out. Yes, Times Square is the worst. It's basically a red light district for Midwestern families. But imagine if those hyper-capitalists got to set their own rules? This state would make Amsterdam look like Singapore.
Although possibly a bit cliché, it is a universally acknowledged gospel that each and every circle of friends, or clique, rather, presents a uniform structure of assigned social roles.
No matter how diverse your circle is, it necessary and wise to keep certain positions filled for various reasons. If you happen to lack a certain role, it may be time to reevaluate and search for some new crew members.
For those nights when you feel like your back’s against the wall and you can’t go on any further, this friend is there to give you that extra push. They’re always there with words of encouragement, even when you least expect it. Got a new job?
We're catching up to the future at a rapid pace. Check this out: self-serving beer vending machines. You read that right.
Introducing DraftServ, the system that will dispense your favorite beer at the touch of a button. The machines can be "dropped in" to any venue, making it easier for larger places like stadiums (it's coming to MLB!) to efficiently serve beer. Currently, beer prices and the wait time of concession lines are going through the roof. Although this technology doesn't look like it may necessarily lower the price of beer, it will definitely lower the wait time for a beer. DraftServ also plans for the machine to regulate alcohol consumption and give attendees more choices of what to drink.
Spaceship Fire Pit by Gator Pit of Texas: $55,000
"My intent to show is that Gator Pit can design and construct a smoker or grill to fit your wants and needs no matter what," says Ritch Robin, president of Gator Pit of Texas. The founder of the trophy-winning custom pits company built his first pit at 14 and now has a TV show, "King of the Grill," airing on Discovery Channel. This spaceship grill, built custom for a new craft beer company, has two beer taps on one wing, several cooking chambers, and even shoots fire from the end like a real spaceship in takeoff.
After a girl’s night in with your BFFs, it may be unheard of to have a bottle of wine leftover. But just in case no one wanted just one more class of Cab, you won't have to worry about the bottle going bad in between get-togethers, with just the touch of a button—no pumping required.
Thanks to the new Rabbit Electric Wine Preserver, you never have to worry about your wine expiring again. This is the easiest device one could dream of using in the process of preserving wine.
Scott Disick, best known for shtupping The One That Isn't Kim Kardashian (no, not Khloe), recently released his list of summer essentials. Disick's list included a Rolex, a white "summer Lamborghini" (which obviously one must stop driving after Labor Day), and other luxury goods, totaling $450,000. But his list, while respectable, felt a little incomplete. Here's our rundown of the ten goods that are absolutely necessary this summer.
And if you're a bit worried about the price, don't be: trust us and Scott Disick. These aren't luxuries, they're essentials. Throw the sunscreen, Nalgene, and reasonably priced jorts, because this summer you're keeping up with the Kardashians.
We all wish there was just a little more room in the fridge for all our beer among the space necessary for meats and vegetables. Imagine having a tap that poured fresh, cold beer whenever you wanted it, straight from the bar—or rather, straight from the counter.
Introducing SYNEK, the new tap for your kitchen.
"SYNEK is a draft system that serves any beer, fresh from the tap, anywhere you want it," says Steve Young, the creator of the machine. Inside the device, which is no bigger than a standard toaster oven, is a vacuum-sealed bag that either you or breweries can fill with your favorite beer. The bag can hold up to 128 fl oz. or 30PSI and is UV-protected to be able to store the beer fresh for months. The bags are also interchangeable; you can pour one glass and then switch to a different brew without losing quality, unlike a growler, which goes bad within two or three days.

About four years ago, in times when social media consisted of just Facebook, cellular devices were only used as modes of communication, and healthcare was optional, I was unconditionally, positively, unquestionably attached to my iPod. A gift given to me upon my 19th birthday, the pocket-sized, technically-advanced (for its time) device was my theoretical salvation. As a lonely, overworked young woman living in the city, escaping into the endless abyss of beloved tunes the iPod offered brought me joy, rapture and delight. These were the simple pleasures, these were the moments to look forward to.
