Ever since you could run you’ve been challenging people to race. First on foot, then on bikes, and eventually that car chase that landed your best friend in juvie (hey, it’s better than ending up in traction). Now you can own the bike from racing legend and American icon Steve McQueen. Based on the Triumph Trophy TR6 that McQueen rode in “The Great Escape,” the Steve McQueen Edition Motorcycle features a strong steel chassis, cast alloy wheels, five-speed manual transmission, and a fuel injected DOHC engine that gets 67 hp. With your rugged good looks and daredevil antics people just might mistake you for a reincarnated version of Mr. McQueen himself.
When traders use your name as a synonym for profit (i.e. “we made a huge Jason Gilman on that hedge fund”), and the Nasdaq pretty much rises and falls at your every whim, you my friend (aka Jason Gilman), have hit the big time. But all this gravitas won’t mean a thing if you’re late to the market. Strap on the one and only Breitling Superocean Abyss Black Dial Watch($2,835) with a stainless steel case, scratch resistant sapphire crystal, Swiss automatic movement and 1500 meters of water resistance to ensure you’ll always arrive fashionably on time.
Anyone who’s lucky enough to call you a friend knows that it’s only a matter of time before they call you their best man. If not for your unparalleled public speaking abilities, then for your epic bachelor parties that would make Charlie Sheen cry. Urban Mercenaries have something that you can add to your party-planning arsenal. What they’re calling The Football($500) is actually an aluminum briefcase filled with Tequila, Vodka, Red Bull, shot glasses, martini shaker, and a host of other amenities that will take a “guys’ night out” to tiger blood levels. Throw in some Nub Cigars and you’ve got yourself a gentleman’s party. Did we mention the pair of handcuffs that come with every briefcase? They’re intended to keep the case with groom at all times, but we’re pretty sure you’ve got more creative uses for them. WINNING!
Since you’ve only been wrong once in your life (and that was on purpose), you won’t relate to F in Exams($7.00), but who doesn’t enjoy a good chuckle at other people’s failure? F in Exams is a compilation of creative test answers provided by students who didn’t have a chance in hell of getting it right, so threw out a Hail Mary instead. Whether its Mariah Carey listed as the highest frequency noise that a human can register, or the one thing in common that Mahatma Gandhi and Genghis Khan have is unusual names, these 250 entries prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that sometimes being wrong can still feel so right.
The F430 Ferrari Spider in your garage won’t do you any good when you’re in Dubai on business. If you miss her sleek lines and impressive horsepower then you should visit the Ferrari World Theme Park in Abu Dhabi. Just 50 minutes from Dubai, the world’s largest indoor (and only) Ferrari theme park is full of attractions featuring your favorite luxury sports car. Experience the thrill of Formula 1 racing, challenge your friend to a race in the GT coaster, or go behind the scenes at the Maranello factory. With a footprint large enough to fit seven football fields head to toe you’ll be sure to satisfy your jonesing for your beloved black stallion.
