Yeah, bro, I know, life is complicated and you’re a grownup with hardly a minute to spare for shredding gnar. Not to worry, Quicksilver’s new “true wetsuits” are made from that wetsuit-y neoprene material so you don’t have to change between the beach and the boardroom.
If bubble wrap is good enough to protect that ceramic frog you bought on eBay as it's shipped from Taiwan, surely a suit made from the same material would give mere mortals invincibility, right?

Will Google survive with its financials intact? This is the question absolutely no one is asking today after it was learned the company will be forced to pay a Pittsburgh couple $1 for trespassing. And yes, they are the Borings. »

Mark Hurd, the former HP CEO who was ousted last month amidst allegations of sexual harassment, just got a new job title: Co-President of Oracle.
