While you wouldn’t consider yourself a candidate for Hells Angel’s (the Vegas bar fight that earned you a night in the pokey aside) you’ve come to respect the all-American badass-ness that the Harley brand represents. Which is why you’ll want to add the Superlow Harley Davidson($8,500) to your collection. The fuel-injected Harley V-Twin provides 55 ft. lbs. of torque at 3500 rpm, and features a low balanced design for easy handling. Perfect for a road trip to Vegas.
You’re fond of Mexico for many reasons (recreational substances, inexpensive politicians, foam night at Señor Frogs) but nothing beats their tequila. You pretty much owe all of your high school happy endings to the spicy clear liquid. Pick up a bottle of Tequila Don Julio 70 Anejo Claro($60.00) and toast your sexual awakening along with the 70th anniversary of the award-winning tequila. Created from hand-grown and harvested blue agave plants and twice distilled, Don Julio 70 Anejo Claro is aged to perfection in white oak barrels for 18 months, and then carefully filtered for extra smoothness and clarity. With just one sip and some Bryan Adams playing on your Portable Digital Music Playeryou’ll be transported back to your 9th-grade girlfriend’s dimly lit basement.
As a man that likes to live (and dare we say thrive) on the edge, you’ll enjoy the Sunrise Touch Screen Faucet. The touchscreen digital control pad stops and starts the water and adjusts temperature and flow with the tap of a finger. So now every time you turn on the faucet, you can tempt fate by mixing electricity and water. We hear there’s nothing quite like the adrenaline rush you get from electrocution.
While the work of certain Italian “economists” like Charles Ponzi have been making headlines in recent years, it would behoove a man of your stature to be well-informed about the work of real Italian economist Vilfredo Pareto, and his observations on wealth and income (two of your favorite pastimes) as reconsidered by contemporary author Richard Koch in the book “The 80/20 Principle.”($10.00) According to Pareto’s studies in 1897, it's usually 20 percent of any given entity—say a business, workforce, or even stock portfolio—that produces 80 percent of the total result. Koch has been kind enough to share his reinterpretation of Pareto’s work, and share insights about what it takes to get the most out of your top 20 percent, both in business and in life. Guaranteed to work 80% of the time, 20% of the time.
Whether you’re an avid bird watcher or a curious neighbor, the Sony Digital Recording Binoculars($930) will definitely turn you on. Capable of taking 7.1-megapixel still shots and recording HD video, the binoculars function just like a camcorder. They also come equipped with an on-board GPS receiver that will pinpoint the exact location of said bird or escalating pillow fight. Happy hunting!
