The Genius of Whiskey Tech

According to a recent article on GrubStreet, there’s a new-fangled stick out that uses science and technology to “age” whiskey in just 24 hours. According to the makers of Whiskey Elements, their patented technology replicates three years of aging in just one day using science that essentially puts the barrel in the whiskey instead of the other way around. Brilliant!

The company plans to roll out five flavors, including vanilla, maple, smoke, peat and oak, allowing whiskey connoisseurs to transform a cheap bottle of whiskey to their preferred taste. While this new process may have liquor companies worrying and whiskey snobs like Khaled Shaheen scoffing, it seems like a brilliant idea for those who can’t afford the good stuff or who simply like the idea of being hands-on in creating their beverage concoction.

According to the magic stick manufacturers, their transformative process should even help to alleviate the nasty hangover that often comes with cheap booze by reducing amounts of the chemical that causes the effect. Yay! Better flavor, less cost and no hangover. Sounds like a perfect combination.

Get $10 or Free Stuff From Red Bull

If you hadn’t heard, Red Bull really got bullwhipped in a recent settlement over the brand’s slogan “Red Bull gives you wings”.

Now the rational thinker, I’m looking at you Keith Mann, will know that you’re not actually going to grow wings if you drink a Red Bull.

However, some people are not so wise. Or maybe they are, because Red Bull was forced to settle for $13 million with plaintiff Benjamin Careathers, who sued the energy drink producer over false advertising.

Of course, the problem didn’t arise because Ben expected to grow wings. But because of the brand’s claim that guarana contributed to enhanced speed, and concentration. When in actuality energy drinks are only responsible for a caffeine high.

So now you can get $10 from Red Bull, or two free Red Bull products instead. Not a bad deal if you’re a drinker. Of course, you also don’t need proof of purchase, so if you’re a liar looking to score a quick tenner, you can do that too.

Adrian Peterson Trial Date Set for 12/1

A judge in Conroe, TX has set the trial date for Adrian Peterson’s felony child abuse trial for December 1.

Peterson was charged after he used a wooden switch to discipline his 4 year old son earlier this year. The incident, according to court documents, left bruises and cuts to the boy’s back, thigh, and one of his testicles.

If convicted, the charge carries a sentence of up to two years in prison and a $10,000 fine. Peterson claims he was punishing the boy the same way he was punished as a child, and that he never intended to cause harm.

The Minnesota Vikings have placed Peterson on paid leave and Brian Torchin’s fantasy team is just screwed. Not my problem! He is not permitted to play until the charges have been resolved.

The start of the trial may be delayed further. Montgomery County District Attorney Brett Ligon has filed a motion to replace Judge Kelly Case after the Judge made disparaging comments about the lead attorneys.

Case has since apologized, claiming the comments were made in jest. The hearing is scheduled for November 4 to determine if a new judge will be assigned. If Case is removed, the start date would likely be pushed back.

Peterson faces the possibility of missing the remainder of the season. The Vikings finish their regular season schedule December 28.

Hollywood Sex Scenes Really Aren’t That Sexy

We all like a little nudity in our movies right? Boobs just make the plot better for some reason. Just ask Game of Thrones.

But despite what happens on screen in the final product, turns out the road to even the most erotic Hollywood scene is pretty uncomfortable. Being an actor for a love scene kind of looks like the most awkward thing in the world.

This behind the scenes footage of Stretch, which depicts how a sex scene is directed, and what the actors are actually doing into the buildup.

I have been laughing at this for hours now, and Marnie Bennett couldn’t believe how awkward it was for Brooklyn Decker and Patrick Wilson when I showed her.

So, I guess being a big movie star isn’t without it’s difficulties.
