30 Things I’ve Learned in 30 Years!

I recently turned 30, and if this were Ancient Rome I would be a wise old man.

So I’ve decided to share 30 things I have learned either through my own mistakes/experiences or through those that have influenced me along the way: (In no particular order)

1. You are never too old to learn something new

2. Spend more time with your family

3. Only you can change the narrative of your life

4. If you are in your twenties, party hard while you can because the hangovers last a minimum of 2 days!

5. The internet isn’t your psychologist, don’t air your dirty laundry there

16. Travel overnight on a train

17. Listen to as much music as you can

18. Regardless who you are, you are no better or worse than anyone…. You have just been born into different circumstances

19. Only YOU can make yourself happy

Why Weed Legalisation Could be Bad for Stoners

In this video from Cracked a case is made by an apparent stoner, as to why full legalisation could be bad for stoners.

He makes a few valid points however I still feel that legalisation is definitely the way forward so people can enjoy themselves and get medicinal benefits without fearing arrest.

The World’s First “Micro-Cycle”

If I told you there was a vehicle that was somewhere between a Segway and a unicycle, would be imagining a clown riding it?

Well, the RYNO is the complete opposite, in fact its actually pretty bad-ass.

Engineer Chris Hoffmann spent 7 years designing this after his daughter asked if it was possible to make a one wheeled motorbike!

The RYNO balances itself front-to-back, but relies on the rider to maintain side-to-side balance because of the single wheel. Leaning forward and backward controls acceleration and deceleration, while leaning to the side makes the vehicle turn in a smooth arc.

And for a small fee of $5 295.00 it can yours!
