Buses, with their frequent stops and penchant for slow speeds, might get some people around, but they cause traffic problems for all the other drivers on the road. As shown off at the 19th International High-Tech Expo in Beijing this past weekend, there may be a solution coming to China—the straddling bus. The bus, which would carry up to 1,400 passengers, allows cars to pass underneath it. Not only would it reduce traffic issues, it would help with serious carbon emission problems. Transit Explore Bus is currently building a life-size model of the clever bus that allows cars under 7 feet to pass underneath, so actually seeing these on the road is still a ways off.

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.
