It's a bicycle. Yes, a very high-tech bicycle. It's called the ARION1, and it was developed by students at Liverpool University in England who are hoping to break the pedal-powered speed record. If you're asking, "How is the rider supposed to see where they're going?", that's a great question. See the hole if the front of the bike? That's for a camera! The rider will use the camera and a computer to navigate. Read more about it here. Ok, it's cool, but who needs all that high-tech stuff? When I was a kid we would have used a big cardboard box with a hole cut in it to accomplish the same thing. Except we would have run into parked cars and mailboxes!

Thought all drugs that came in powdered form are illegal? Think again! Palcohol, or powdered alcohol, recently received government approval for sale and distribution. The drink mix is basically grown-up Kool-Aid. It comes in a variety of flavors, including Mojito, Lemon Drop and Cosmopolitan. Just add five ounces of water for an instant cocktail. The company says Palcohol is a convenient way to enjoy alcoholic beverages at concerts and sporting events, or any time. But there are some obvious public health and safety concerns - notably, the fact that it’s discreet and therefore easy for underage drinkers to use. Would you give this a try? Personally, I'm not sure about this. from a strictly taste standpoint, "powdered" stuff usually doesn't taste as good as the real deal, does it? And some drinks just need to be made by hand, although after a few of these you might have trouble seeing your hand!

Add this to the list of ridiculous pregnancy and parenting trends. Hopeful moms-to-be are now throwing “pee parties,” where they all take pregnancy tests and celebrate their results! Also known as POAS (Pee On A Stick) Parties, these gatherings allow groups of women who are hoping to get knocked up around the same time to make a usually private moment very public. So would you take part in a POAS Party? Or do you think these make a very personal thing too "social"? Drop us a line: email@example.com
