Every homeowner has been there: You have to mow the grass and there just isn’t enough time. You might have too much yard or you might have had to work late. Hell, there’s probably storm clouds looming and your grass isn’t getting any shorter. If only you had a lawnmower that could hit 100 mph in less than seven seconds. Well, you might be able to borrow Honda’s. The Honda Mean Mower just snagged the Guinness World Record for the “Fastest Acceleration 0-100 mph for a Lawnmower.” Yes, that’s a real record. The Mean Mower managed an average sprint to 100 mph in only 6.285 seconds after two runs, piloted by Jess Hawkins. The Mean Mower doesn’t rely on one of Honda’s mower engines for power. Instead, the engine from a Honda CBR1000RR Fireblade helps this tube-chassis mower get up to speed. Honda says the I4 motorcycle engine makes 200 hp at a screaming 13,000 rpm and can propel the Mean Mower to a 150-mph top speed. Topping it all off, … [Read more...] about Watch Honda’s Mean Mower hit 100 mph in 6.285 seconds

"Scant" means "just barely." Tory Byrne Q. When a recipe calls for a scant cup or scant teaspoon, what does that mean? A. The term "scant" is used occasionally in recipes and cookbooks. Scant means "just barely." In cooking, scant refers to an amount that's just barely reaching; in other words, not packed. When a recipe calls for a scant cup or scant teaspoon of something, don't fill the measuring cup or spoon to the top. Instead, use slightly less than the required amount. If you are still unsure about the correct amount, you might need to test your recipe once or twice before you get the amounts just right. When testing, be sure to start with small amounts and gradually increase the measurement each time you test the recipe.

The Tesla Model S (Courtesy of Tesla Motors, Inc.) Tesla Motors is a California based car company that's making waves for making practical, fully electric cars that also happen to be rather nice. But it wasn't always that way, especially considering the company's brief history (founded in 2003). Tesla's first car was the Roadster, which was a Lotus Elise body fitted with an electric motor. So in other words, instead of a $50,000 gasoline-powered Elise, Tesla buyers got a $100,000 modified electric Elise. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Tesla sold just a couple thousand Roadsters. The Model S, Tesla's latest all-electric sedan, is a fresh design and is hand assembled piece by piece, which is only two of the reasons it's getting so much attention -- a lot of people didn't think Elon Musk, the company's charismatic co-founder, could pull it off. Even though Musk has a long history of accomplishments in the tech and engineering industries, as well as some impressive financial savvy, auto … [Read more...] about How the Tesla Model S Works
I have been sitting on this quiet observation for far too long, and feel compelled to share this with the general public, in the hopes that someone out there will confirm that I am not crazy. Doesn’t Samantha Markle, estranged half-sister of Meghan, look an awful lot like Kim Cattrall? Samantha Markle’s face is a face with which we are all intimately familiar, only because she has been making it that way since her estranged half-sister Meghan became engaged to, then married, and is now impregnated via Prince Harry, the handsome ginger one. Roughly one month prior to Meghan and Harry’s blessed engagement, Samantha blew onto the scene like a friggin’ bat outta an overpriced loft in Hell’s Kitchen, with the news that she would be writing a tell-all memoir about her sister’s biracial identity and childhood. That book never came to fruition, but Samantha stayed on the scene, popping up like a hormonal pimple on America’s collective chin every now … [Read more...] about Have You Ever Noticed that Meghan Markle’s Mean Sister Samantha Looks Like Kim Cattrall?
