The “Storm Area 51” craze is on full tilt, and there are apparently 1.6 million people on Facebook who might seriously be in on the joke, causing the U.S. Air Force to issue a warning against attempts at breaching mysterious the government property in the Nevada desert. Bud Light is angling to their advantage by offering up free beer to any alien who happens to make it out if and when the teeming hordes break through. They’ve even created their own green and black (because that’s the color of aliens, dammit!) Bud Light label replete with bug-eyed alien head and the words “The Universally Renowned Space Beer” and “We Come In Peace” so as to create new drinking buddies without a scuffle. The Twitter campaign to promote the effort is asking for 50K retweets in order for the brand to print the labels, which we imagine will happen since they’re already over 40K. Who’s the superior species now?


In a world where gadgets are judged on how well they do their jobs despite being available in the smallest packages possible, the Hunt23 Ultra Compact Flashlight reigns supreme. They took all the life-proof features of the incredibly bright Hunt22 (iceproof / smashproof / waterproof / fireproof) and upgraded the titanium body with a tiny pry bar on the back that can be used as a flathead screwdriver or to open boxes, bottles, bags and cans. It’s also TSA-compliant so you don’t have to worry about traveling with it. This flashlight is the EDC tool you’ve been missing.
