Was reading the newest issue of Men's Journal and just have to post links to three things that definitely caught my eye, not all in a good way.
First we have a 14-night mountain bike trip through small-town China. The trip is run in August and October and fetches a very reasonable $1650 per person and includes lodging, meals, bike, transport, and guides.
Next up, and almost as cool although not nearly as worthwhile a purchase, is the Blender Blaster. It's a gas-powered 4-cycle blender complete with a clutch and motorcycle-style throttle controls. Although the top-of-the-line Honda GX model costs $449.00, it'd be a pretty cool thing to have if you entertain outdoors a lot and want a cordless blender. Or if you just have a really small penis and need to compensate with gas-powered toys. I would never spend $449 on a blender, but I do like knowing we live in a world where such things exist.
Lastly, there's a eco-tourism resort in Mexico, 700 miles south of the US border, that operates a 3,000 acre park in which they -- get this -- simulate the thrillof being an illegal immigrant trying to cross the Rio Grande into America. They even have fake border-patrol agents who will chase you and fire guns at you (loaded with blanks, presumably). The link listed in MJ isn't working and a search only reveals a similar article in Harper's, but this was just too weird not to post about.
