The 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London will be here before we know it. And I cannot wait! This is actually the second time that the Games have been hosted in London. The first time was in 1948.

I'm proud to say, that after 5 years of living in NYC, I finally got a bike. Not only can I get around easily, but also I'm officially initated into the ManMade Brotherhood of Biking.

A bunch of brave souls went to Corona Arch in Moab, Utah and rigged up, presumably, the world's largest rope swing. The rope was anchored to the rock in five different places using some seriously heavy duty gear. The swing itself is 150 ft, and the intial free fall 130 ft. And the best part: they captured everything with stunning quality in this beautiful video.

Maker and artist Mike Warren has invented "the Gentleman's Ski Pole," a clever option to add a small, concealed flask inside the handles of his skiing stocks.
But what he's really done is show all of us how to secretly stash a DIY flask inside of anything you can imagine: a walking stick, a book, a portfolio or breifcase...
If it's got some solid material, you can put a flask in it. And, oh, should you put a flask in it.
