time-list

2010 might mark the 25th anniversary of the movie trilogy with a lot of killer inventions (hoverboards, time traveling cars, down vests), but there are also a lot of pretty sweet gadgets that got invented this year. Time Magazine’s 50 Best Inventions of 2010 starts with everyone’s favorite fruit branded power tool/tablet (the iPad, duh) and moves through categories like tech, transportation, bioengineering and green energy. We want you to be able to waste as much time at work as possible, so we’re not going to go down the list item by item. Our favorites include: Amtrak’s Beef-Powered Train, Spray-on Clothing, and a piece of software that can detect sarcasm. Do all of these inventions somehow contribute to the rise of Skynet? Probably, but at this point in time we don’t care because we’ll take one of each.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
