The Ridiculous Travel Accessories You Should Never, Ever Use

If you love to travel then you might like to take a few travel accessories away with you. Let’s just hope you don’t go wandering round the planet with any of these ridiculous items.

Paper Underwear

Funny Travel Accessories

Can you explain what the point of paper underwear is? Sure, I get that it must be a thrill to feel that paper crinkling away next to your private parts all day long but is it meant to be environmentally friendly, a boon for travellers or both? Whenever I see this stuff I imagine the horrible situation of someone who keeps the same pair of paper boxers on for far too long and they end up all horrible and dirty and ripped and stuff.

Wire Security Meshes

Ridiculous Travel Accessories

So, you’re a backpacker. If you are lucky the most expensive item in your backpack cost you about $2 and now smells like a badger has died in after rolling around in manure for a few hours. Why then would you consider it necessary to chain the thing up in some sort of unbreakable wire mesh and attach it to a metal post? You do realise that mad foreign criminals who wouldn’t otherwise have looked at you twice will now kill you in order to obtain the key to your smelly treasure chest?

The Luggage Drink Holder

Ridiculous Travel Accessories

If there is one thing I always think when I am pushing my suitcase through the airport it is; where could I balance a hot beverage in a precarious manner? The best answer I have come up with so far is on my partner’s shoulder but to be honest she is getting fed up with this. This stunningly ridiculous travel accessory lets you carry your drink sensibly and safely.

The Brief Safe

 Useless Travel Accessories

We are back to talking about underwear again, aren’t we? We sure are. To start off with, I have no idea if the demented genius behind the brief safe was thinking about travellers when his two brain cells collided and he came up with the idea. However, the idea of hiding money in a piece of underwear with a fake dirty stain on it is too good to confine it to the borders of your home country.

The Laptop Stash Card

Ridiculous Travel Accessories

So you want to hide your most valuable possessions somewhere no thief would ever think of looking for it? Hmmm, I’ve got an idea for you. It might sound a little crazy at first but just stick with me. You know that highly expensive laptop you are taking away with you? Yeah? Well, how about if you put your money and cards and things in there. It’s got be better than putting them in your underwear, at least.

The Banana Bunker

Useless Travel Accessories

How many times have you suffered the burning shame and indignity of having to eat a bruised banana on your travels? It’s horrible, I know. Well, the banana bunker is here to end your suffering. This banana case costs far more than the fruit itself but comes in a variety of fetching colours, which is all we can really ask of a useless travel accessory.

The Wi-Fi Detecting T-Shirt

Ridiculous Travel Accessories

You are a geek and you are, quite frankly, proud of it. As you stroll through foreign lands in an ungainly way why not crank up your geek-o-meter to the next level by wearing a garment that shows when you are in a Wi-Fi zone? Attractive foreign people of both sexes will fall over each other to be near you, you groovy travelling hipster.

The Taxi Phone App

Ridiculous Travel Accessories

As you stand at the side of the road in Ulan Bator or Guatemala City you might start getting frustrated at the fact that no taxis stop for you. Hang on though, what if you had a handy phone app that turned your iPhone into a taxi sign. Yeah, that ought to do the trick.

Improve Mental Focus with Key Brain Supplements

For a hundreds of years people have been using brain supplements to improve their mental focus. Science is only now starting to grasp at the basics of this potential world changing advancement in human understanding.

 Mental Focus and Enhancement

To manifest your dream into reality, you must focus your mind on the dream, and take actions toward that dream in the physical world.

Focus is the key. Earl Nightingale, one of the founders of the personal development industry, famously said, “You get what you think about most of the time.” 
So, how can you enhance your brain’s ability to focus a dream into your mind? The most effective way is brain nutrition. Brain supplements are concentrated forms of brain nutrition, and the good news is, brain supplements do many things. A single brain supplement can empower you to improve your memory, clear your mind, energize your brain, and enhance your ability to focus. 
A neurotransmitter is a chemical substance that is released at the end of a neuron by the arrival of a nerve impulse. By moving across the synapse between neurons, it transfers the impulse to another neuron. The neurotransmitter “acetylcholine” transfers the impulses responsible for learning, making new memories, recalling memories and focusing. 
Therefore, you must make sure your diet is rich with all the raw materials that your brain needs to produce acetylcholine. 
So, what are these substances? 

The 3 Biochemicals Needed to Produce Acetylcholine 

  • Choline

The main foods that are rich in choline are organic, free-range eggs and free-range and grass-fed meats. However, there are also pure forms of choline that are extracted from foods. Alpha-GPC is the most highly absorbed and effective form of choline available today. It is also shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, which is necessary for it to benefit your brain. Alpha-GPC is extracted from soybeans. 
  • An Acetate Molecule

Acetic acid, which contains acetate molecules, is found in vinegar. 
Acetyl L-Carnitine is a pure form amino acid with an acetate molecule attached. It is also shown to cross the blood-brain barrier.
  •  Vitamin B5

Vitamin B5 is the cofactor in the production of acetylcholine. You can find Vitamin B5 in many foods, such as organic spinach, kale and grass-fed red meat. Or, you can buy pure Vitamin B5 in pill or liquid form.
The key is to take them all together to achieve a synergistic effect. Your options are to buy them all separately, or find a supplement that contains all three. 
You can find them all individually on or any other large supplement website.
You can also try BrainJuice, which is a cutting-edge brain supplement I created that contains all these raw materials in incredibly abundant amounts, with green tea extract, blueberry extract, chia seed extract, acai berry extract and all the raw materials you need to produce it and the feel-good neurotransmitter, dopamine. 
Either way, this hack will elevate your mental energy level and increase your focus, moving you closer to manifesting your dreams into reality!

Want to Leave a Stench Behind? 5 Perfumes to Make You Stink On Purpose

A long time ago, in a universe far far away from our contemporary world, somebody realized people didn’t shower much (probably because they didn’t have showers) and they reeked. Basically. So that brilliant genius created perfume, as a means to the glorious end of making somebody smell nice, like flowers, fruits or summer rain blessing green heavenly pastures. And then everybody looked at that genius and decided they wanted more. And this is how an industry was born.

Joke aside, the history of perfumes is quite interesting to study and, as creepy as it is, the movie Perfume: The Story of a Murderer from 2006, touches some relevant points: people want to smell good as it seems others around them like to feel around their noses fine fragrances. However, some people just want to leave a stench behind and stink on purpose, and the industry jumped at their calling and created some…unique fragrances that can may blow your mind and your olfactory sensors. Like it’s not enough to not shower for a week, you have to wear a signature stench to be cool. So let’s see 5 perfumes to make you stink on purpose and maybe to use when you’re planning to be the only one in the audience at the next big rock concert you don’t want to share with the rest of the population.

5. Bordello Perfume Oil

Want to smell like a… professional? Or like you’ve just spent the last two hours in a Game of Thrones -ish W*-House? Perfect, because this perfume oil seems to be unisex and if you are curious enough to read the Amazon reviews, the first and the most appraising comes from a gentleman. The company – Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab – seems to have quite the success with this fragrance, described by the customers as a “Bold blend of fruit and booze”.

4. Vulva

Seriously, you want us to get into details? The title and description are self – explanatory enough and even too detailed. Not that we’d frown upon peoples’ tastes in fragrances but among the perfumes to make you stink on purpose, this one has to be the king of all fashion “statements”. For the sake of mankind, we hope this is unisex, too.

3. Lobster

Now, the Demeter Fragrance Library is probably the best place in the world where you can find a perfume to suit your tastes and needs, be them reeking of curry, shoes, pizza and so on. But this one with the Lobster Fragrance has something interesting to it. Say you buy this. Every time you feel like spending your month payment on a single lobster dinner, you sprinkle yourself with some of this perfume and pufff! cravings are gone. Together with your date, but that is not for us to judge. If you can eliminate food cravings by wearing dedicated perfumes (there are the ones with meat, hamburgers, sushi, barbeque and bacon, among others), this may turn into a revolutionary diet.

2. Fresh Cannabis

Make sure no cop smells you accidentally, as you might have some explaining to do regarding your taste in fragrances. Otherwise, it is perhaps the best perfume to wear in a club to pick – up people (some you like and cohorts of stoners you might not like so much) asking you for a joint, but hey, it’s a price to pay to coolness. This fragrance, however, can make you stink like a skunk so the picking – up plan may turn into a Forever alone meme on the Internet.

1. Cthulhu

Because why not, people? Why not wear a Cthulhu scent, among all the perfumes that make you stink on purpose? There is one about human secretions and bodily fluids we didn’t focused on, as we thought Vulva was enough. But Cthulhu is for the initiated, the special, the visionary. How can you get the honor to reek like a fictional horrific ancient oceanic monster, besides asking H.P. Lovecraft himself during a seance? Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab has the answer for you. And for $17.50, you’d better smell like Cthulhu so good, you would creep the soul of Lovecraft if he was alive.

Well we hope we gave you some pretty ideas on how to choose perfumes to make you stink on purpose. While that Bordello thing doesn’t sound bad, our hearts were gained by the sea monster. What would you like to wear? You know what, don’t answer that…

What Are You Playing With? 5 Fantasy Series Inspired Board Games

It is no news that in the last years, science fiction and fantasy as genres conquered the world of literature, cinema, visual arts and Internet fun. Adapting fantasy written series for the silver screen and for television is a common trend and it made billions of dollars world – wide, while collectibles, fanfic and inspired-everything gathered also billions of fans.

Today we will talk about fantasy series inspired board games, as once you turned off the TV or left the cinema, you still long for spending more time in a certain universe and board games creators understood that better than anybody. While Game of Thrones card games and board games and extensions are internationally famous and quite complex to play, there are, of course, other book series that got adapted and became entertaining board games to keep you hooked on the universe some brilliant writer managed to create. Here are only five of them.

1. Terry Pratchett’s Discworld: Ankh-Morpork

If you are not familiar with Pratchett’s universe, you really should, as it is considered the funniest fantasy series of all times. It all happens on the Discworld and the characters and stories kept people hooked on the author’s humor and writing style for years. The Ankh – Morpork board – game takes place in the city – state with the same name, you are given a certain character and personality and your goal is to reach your game goals, while trying to prevent your opponents from reaching theirs. It is an incredible journey in one of the vastest, most mind – blowing fantasy universes ever written in this world.

2. Harry Potter Mystery At Hogwarts Game

Now the famous Harry Potter series inspired a lot of board and card games and this one resembles Clue a lot, as it transports you into the Harry Potter universe, while you have to solve mysteries and work your way through a very compelling story. It is a strategy game based on classic mystery solving older games, but it deserves its place in the list of fantasy series inspired board games because it is exciting and can keep you entertained for hours.

3. The Lord of The Rings Adventure Board Game

In case you didn’t know, there are also two The Hobbit board games but the Lord of The Rings comes in many shapes and challenges. In case you are addicted to Tolkien’s universe, you can buy them all and play them all, as this particular one can be integrated in the Hobbit series. It may take you months to build the entire complex realm, play and try to win, as the rules are complex and not always well understood by the players and it takes a while to figure out what is going on. An everlasting challenge, we might say.

4. The Hunger Games: Training Days

The Hunger Games books and movies are a contemporary success and it was only logical they would end up as board games. This one is quite appreciated by the players, although you can also find other board and card games inspired by the series. This challenges you as a Tribute and pushes your skills enough to learn strategy and survive the tasks and even win a few rounds. It is well – made and seems to be favored by families and large groups of friends.

5. Twilight Board Game

Of course there are Twilight Saga inspired board games! Based on the popular books and movie series, this is a trivia game, not a strategy or mystery one, so if you are a true dedicated fan, you will win by answering questions related to the movie. Unfortunately, if you browse users’ reviews on Amazon or dedicated sites, you will find out they were a bit disappointed about this game, as it wasn’t as challenging as they would have hoped and it seems it has some additional questions and tasks that are poorly related to the Twilight universe. Others had a lot of fun with it, however, so it all depends perhaps on what your expectations are.

There are, of course, other fantasy series inspired board games for you to play, independent novels even, not to mention board games inspired by comic books and superhero franchises. It is lovely to see people so engaged with a story, a realm, a plot or some characters, that they just want them to become constant parts of their lives.
