But what if your idea was so bizarre that no one offered even a penny for its development? Here are four ideas that should never have made it past an initial thought. 1. Throx
Throx is one of those “just in case” type of products.  Throx are socks that come in packages of three (not 2, but 3) socks. Lose a sock? No worries.  With Throx you would still have two left. 2.

Cuban Car Care

Cuba…with two presidential candidates of Cuban heritage and the president rethinking our relationship with Cuba, this island country has been in the news more often lately.  Since the embargo, many of our ideas about Cuba have been shaped by the Elian Gonzales saga and for better or worse, re-runs of I Love Lucy and Desi Arnaz.  Cuba is also known for their national fleet of classic US cars.  Cubans are masters of car upkeep, probably in large part due to the embargo of 1961.  Regardless of how you feel about the current debate about going forward with Cuba, you have to admire the Cuban dedication to preserving classic cars.

Cosplayers, the shoes make the outfit.  Never doubt the power of the shoe, because it may be your secret weapon.  Even the ancient Greeks knew the power of a spectacular shoe, because they specifically deemed that their messenger god Hermes had winged sandals.  As you prep for your summer tour of convention hopping, be sure to invest in shoes.  Boston Proper’s Colorful Mystique Flat is sure to be a darling among our lady cosplayers out there.

Nothing may be more patriotic than driving a Jeep.  The original Jeep went into production in 1941 specifically for the military, arguably making them the oldest SUVs.   The Jeep became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and the Allies during WWII.  But what about the funny name?  A dictionary of military slang, published in 1942, in the library at The Pentagon gives this definition: Jeep: A four-wheel drive vehicle of one-half- to one-and-one-half-ton capacity for reconnaissance or other army duty.

Sociology Of Short Skirts

Anne Middleton
June 5th, 2015

If women in the U.S. wore shorter skirts, the economy would improve. That’s not a misogynist’s dream, it’s sociology research.  Sociologists have found that the worse the economy, the longer the women’s skirts are, and the better the economy, the shorter the skirt.  Ladies, rock those short skirts and watch the economy improve.  We’ve got great shoes to pair with short skirts.  We don’t think of Nikes for anything but athletic shoes, but they have an impressive stock of sandals and flip flops.  The Nike Lunarsandiator Sky Hi is a sandal fit for a lady gladiator.

June 2nd, 2015

These days, we wonder how we ever existed without mobile phones.  It is vital artery of communication that is used to connect to family and friends. And selecting Verizon as your prime plan for interacting with others assures ultimate satisfaction.  Verizon provides America's largest and most reliable 4G LTE network.
