This is master pizzaiola Dom DeMarco, practicing the art that he's been perfecting for more than 5 decades within the cultural and geographic heart of Brooklyn. There's nothing quite like it anywhere, watching him work is the closest you might ever come to experiencing true Nirvana. But I give you fair warning: DO NOT watch this video unless you are within striking distance of Avenue J in Midwood, NY--otherwise this footage will only succeed in making you painfully envious and/or homesick.

The bad-ass bicycle that you're looking at above is produced by my good friend Kane Fortune, of Fortune Hanebrink All-Terrain Vehicles. Even more rugged than it looks, this state-of-the-art mega-machine can go over boulders, beaches, snow, shrubs or anything else that you can throw in its way. It has an electric-on-demand throttle that allows you to get an added boost when you're going up insane inclines that would otherwise be impassable on a traditional bicycle.
Hand-crafted in Corona, CA by legendary cyclist Dan Hanebrink, this unsurpassed piece of cutting-edge technology is no louder than a standard street bike, and can ride on full throttle for over an hour. Used properly--as an intermittent pedal-assistant--you can enjoy an entire afternoon of adventuring on one charge.
Just this year, the Hanebrink was a part of history, as cyclist Helen Skelton rode one for 103 miles to the South Pole, becoming the first person in the world to accomplish such a feat. Under the harshest conditions on earth, this bicycle proved just how serious it is about owning the title, 'All-Terrain.' Good luck finding obstacles that it can't dominate. As Kane recently told the BBC, "It looks like Batman's Bike." If you fancy yourself a superhero then say hello to your own personal Batmobile.

In what is sure to be one the most landmark rulings in recent American history, the Supreme Court is set to strike down the individual mandate by a familiar 5-4 margin later this week. Sources close to Justices Scalia and Thomas have confirmed that after today's arguments, the decision is all but guaranteed. What this means to Obamacare at large remains uncertain at this time, but what is certain is that one of the current administration's crowning achievements has been dealt a major setback.
Concern arose shortly after the bill's passage almost two years ago regarding the constitutionality of requiring American citizen's to purchase health insurance. According to the two sources with detailed knowledge of the deliberation process, lawyers representing the Affordable Care Act--namely, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli--failed to support their case sufficiently. As a result, conservative Justices Kennedy, Scalia, Roberts, Thomas and Alito had already made up their minds by later in the afternoon.
It is highly unorthodox for sitting Justices to openly discuss a case with outsiders while still in deliberation. Apparently, however, Scalia and Thomas were so confident and adamant in their conviction that this particular piece of legislation be struck down, that they were willing to part ways with hundreds of years of unshakeable impartiality to serve their own transparent agenda.
Stay tuned for more updates to this controversial story as it develops...

Extensive research has proven that this particular blog--as well as every site on the internet--sees a dramatic surge in traffic whenever boobs are involved. To accentuate my point, here are some boobs:
You can't argue with evidence like that...

Sources close to Peyton Manning have revealed to The Revolting Blog that the NFL Superstar quarterback will be inking a contract with the Broncos worth more than $95 million. The impeding deal--which was leaked under the condition of anonymity--will place the future hall-of-famer in charge of Denver's impressively rebuilt offense for the next 5 years, making it a virtual certainty that Peyton will retire in the Mile High City. Barring a massive breakdown in negotiations, the news could be announced as soon as today, coming on the heels of several other significant additions to the Broncos roster.
Denver football fans can now look forward to having a Manning-to-Jason Hill connection, which should be quite thrilling considering how impressive the athletic wide receiver was down the stretch for the Jacksonville Jaguars last season.
Expect the Broncos to be immediate favorites to come out of the AFC once the announcement is made official. Could we hope to see Peyton exact a little revenge against the Patriots for last year's embarrassing playoff defeat? With an actual all-pro QB leading the offense--instead of a no-talent assclown--anything is possible...

This is one of the best commercials I have ever seen in my entire life. The realism that it captures is pretty intense for any realm, let alone advertising. If watching it doesn't make you at all emotional, then you probably don't spend much time rooting for sports--not that there's anything wrong with that (actually, yes there is).
