File this under are you f’ing nuts? Apparently setting speed records on a densely packed salt bed is just too boring. So much that in Russia, there are ice speed records. Seriously? Who came up with the idea that while driving on ice, we should go as fast as possible? We can’t be sure but we suspect considerable quantities of vodka were involved. Through a joint project of Nissan Russia and LAV Productions, Andrey Leontjev and Roman Rusinov attempt to break the Russian Ice Speed Record with a production Nissan GT-R. The place? Baikal Lake, Russia. Temperature? -22 degrees Celsius. Ice? 1.4 meters thick.

Ah, the waffle weave. Looks cool, feels great, reminds us of toasted Eggos. You’ve seen them before–probably in a fancy store or hotel–but Parachute’s brand new Waffle Towels are different. They’re spun using innovative Aerocotton Technology, which basically means they’ll be dry by the time your significant other finally gets out of the shower and realizes you stole their towel. Parachute’s Waffle Towels come in two sizes and two neutral colors. Plus, their 100% cotton construction means they start soft and only get softer with time. Even Kevin McCallister would approve.
