Out on the street where you live, it’s finally summer. Maybe this means that the world outside your door is as hot as the surface of the sun or the trees have conspired to drown you in allergens, but regardless, winter has finally gone and died and guess what; it’s time to ride your bicycle.
When we head out in the sun, we just want a sunscreen that will protect our skin and not kill us. That’s not too much to ask, is it? But the Environmental Working Group (EWG) wants us to pick the best sunscreen, and nags us with true but not very useful facts: This one contains an ingredient that caused cancer in a…
In an effort to celebrate Australia Day—a holiday in which the nation apparently likes to risk life and limb for a little fun—a bunch of Aussies realized that the ride on a Slip ‘N Slide is always way too short. So they built an infinite version where you can keep hurtling around for as long as you can hold on.
Who knew a crappy T-rex costume we once all dumped on would turn out to be one of the best things to happen to the internet? In this video Mark Gomez dons the inflatable dino suit and thrashes a jetski around a lake. The fact that he can still perform mid-air twists and flips without going extinct himself is beyond…
Every year Paul Borrud builds a massive homebrew Slip N Slide to help celebrate Australia Day, which falls on January 26. (Remember, it’s summer there.) This year’s effort measured almost 330-feet long and ended in a billabong that wasn’t quite large enough to contain most riders as they came rocketing down the slope.…
If you travel with a lot of expensive camera, video, or music gear, there’s a good chance you stuff it all in a Pelican case to ensure it arrives unscathed. The company is known for its nearly indestructible cases, and now that it’s made a cooler, you’ll never have to worry about something happening to your drinks.
Summer can mean a few things: Frolicking in unbearable humidity until your skin is a festering wreck, or cuddling up next to the AC and binge-watching anime. No judgment here.
You’ve already taken your summer trip, it’s too hot to do anything outside, and the kids are tired of the library. It’s the perfect time for at-home science experiments. These five experiments are fun even if you don’t have kids, but if you do, there’s even more reason to spend an afternoon exploring science.
The smell of coconut sunblock is in the air, daiquiris are being consumed in record numbers, and dudes on the subway have all forgone their sleeves to show us their poorly groomed armpit hair. Summer is here!
We spent 12 hours of researching and testing to find the best window fans for bringing in cool air at night or extracting hot air out of a kitchen window. For most people, the Pelonis 9″ Twin Window Fan is a great value. But the pricier Bionaire Twin Reversible Airflow Window Fan is worth an upgrade if you need more…
Not that anybody needed a Facebook “it’s summer” reminder to begin with, but Brits are doubly annoyed that they got the greeting when it’s pouring rain outside.
Vinegar is probably the last thing you’d think to reach for when you want to make a refreshing drink. But with a little sugar, a handful of past-its-prime fruit, and about a week in the fridge, vinegar can transform into one of the most complex, mixologist-approved flavors to ever grace your cocktails.
Summer is coming—and it’s going to be an incredibly, absurdly hot one for America. Except in two states.
If not left docked at a marina or cottage, a trailer is a necessary accessory for hauling a jet ski out to the lake. But what if you could instead squeeze into the trunk of your car? That’s the dream this inflatable Sea-Doo realizes—if only it weren’t sized for children.
We’re about to say goodbye to everything green, sweet, and sunny. But not yet! So for this week’s Shooting Challenge, you took beautiful photos of the fruits and veggies of summer.
It’s that time of year, where everything is on the cusp of death again, and we’re about to dig deep into our root cellars and grocer’s freezers to eat. But not YET! So for this week’s Shooting Challenge, let’s photograph some fresh produce.
With its golden hills, lush green forests, and turquoise-colored ocean, Big Sur is one of the most beautiful places you can visit, but it looks even better from above — while paragliding.
