Barry Bonds’ Former Home Listed At $36 MILLION (With Movie Theater)


Barry Bonds’ former Beverly Park home is on the market for $36 MILLION DOLLARS, and HOLY SHIT do I want it! The 17,000-square-foot home comes complete with a movie theater and an olive grove. Neil J. Leitereg of the LA Times reports:

The Italian-inspired home behind gates was designed as a family home capable of hosting large-scale gatherings and built in 1998. Bonds bought the residence, which has a 17,100-square-foot villa, a 2,100-square-foot sports court and an olive grove, in 2002 for $8.7 million, public records show.
Marked by a circular motor court with a fountain, the two-story home is entered through elaborate curved double-doors wrapped in wrought iron.
Drawing from grand European style, two floors of living space feature such details as imported limestone columns, Italian travertine floors, silk carpets and crystal chandeliers. Hand-painted murals and coffered ceilings set off rooms as high as 30-feet.
Among living spaces is a walnut-paneled office, a 12-seat theater, a game room, a wine cellar and a gym. There are seven bedrooms and 13 bathrooms in all.

Uhhhh, yes please?

The Darwin Tank: A Jellyfish Aquarium


Darwin Tank

For reasons unbeknownst to me the popularity of owning fish tanks has been declining in recent years, which is weird because there have been multiple reality TV shows based around aquariums. It’s time we bring aquariums back in the most badass way possible: jellyfish aquariums. Jellyfish are notoriously hard to keep in an aquarium because many of the species require constnatly moving water and cannot bump the sides of the tank, they therefore require an aquarium with a rotating water source that keeps them off the sides. Enter the ‘Darwin Tank’ on KickStarter!

Designed to sublimate jellyfish.
Sit back and watch your jellyfish operating in an environment specifically designed for them. Let yourself be mesmerized by the shadows on your walls and your ceiling. Observe their anatomy thanks to the magnifying effect of the glass dome. Without angle and with its perfect curves, Darwin Tank gives the impression that a single membrane separates water from air. A drop of ocean fleet harboring life in your home …

Military Grade Waterproof Cellphone Case: The Mophie H2PRO



The latest offering from Mophie, the ‘Mophie H2PRO’, is the future of the cellphone case. It’s completely waterproof AND it charges your phone when it’s dying. And when I sawy completely waterproof I mean 100% WATERPROOF, as in ‘exceeds military standards.’ As in “IP68 Ingress Protection. Tested and passed standards against the invasion of dust, foreign objects and water immersion up to 1.2m for 30 minutes.”

Furthermore, the Mophie H2PRO offers up to 14 additional hours of talk time, 10 additional hours of web browsing, 11 additional hours of video playback, and 50 additional hours of music playback…which is an absolutely INSANE amount of additional battery time. This is the kind of case I’d been looking for at festivals/concerts when there was a chance of rain and I planned on using my phone a shitton that day. This case has solved a whole heap of problems. The Mophie H2PRO is the REAL DEAL, and you’d BUY ONE TODAY by following those links down below if you knew what was good for you!!!
