Who, I ask you, is the coolest human being on the planet? Well yesterday (continuing through today and possibly tomorrow) it was Beth F. for sending me this rocking shot glass from the Oakland Zoo.

Awesome things in this photo include: Oakland Zoo Shot Glassitude, my thumb, waffle-weave polyester couch.

Additionally, I also recently acquired a Honolulu Zoo shot glass. So that brings the collection up to 39! I’ll tell you this… whoever supplies me with my 40th zoo or aquarium shot glass will get something really special. I won’t divulge exactly what it is, but it will involve glitter and puffy paint…

    Why not make it “zoo, aquarium and insectarium” shot glass collection?
    Then I could be the 40th. I’m pretty desperate these days. But not the sort of desperation that some glittery puff paint couldn’t take care of.

    As the technology developed so quickly, many manufacturers take this advantage to make duplications of other famous brands, Nike is no doubt one of the most famous sports brand in the world, no wonder the more famous Nike is, the more fake Nike shox shoes appears. So how could we tell the differences between genuine one and the fake one?The following three ways will help you became the Nike expert.Texture There is no doubt that the texture of real Nike shoes is different from that of fake ones, and this is also one of the key factors that helps you identify the Nike shoes. It is known to all, except for the Nike brand advertising and development costs, the materials used in shoes itself is indeed expensive which fake shoes will definitely not imitate. Usually, fake shoes developers will recruited lower grade textures according to the real shoes materials and properties to act as their imitation materials.1, upper material Nike basketball shoes usually applied with imitation leather which contains a higher fiber density than leather, and the toughness and permeability are even better than leather, at the same time ,it is not easy to deformation. Therefore, a good imitation leather material is much more expensive than the price of leather. Generally, simulation shoes would not use such kind of material, thus, we can check out the gloss, and squeeze, pull or stretch the microfiber PU to feel the flexibility and toughness.2, upper craft Crafts like: hot-cutting, micro-injection and etc applied in the shoes could help us as well. Though same in appearance, fake shoes always use the materials with no flexibility, suppose you wear a Nike air max shoes in cold winter, there are possibilities that your shoes may fracture.3, sole No matter how similar between the real and fake one. There are still differences at the sole of shoes. Sometimes, the real one will add some chemical raw materials, recycled materials or carbon to make shoes more wear-resistant and non-slip. While the fake one will not take this into consideration. Here is a little trick: wearing a pair of real Nike air max shoes walking on the plastic floor, you will hear a very loud reak?sound, while the fake one, under normal circumstances, could absolutely make no such voices.
