Not quite the clearest directions but would you believe I have friends who would do a poorer job while out on a canoe trip? It’s true.
I love this photo from the 1930’s of two kids learning how to swim. Somebody tell me that wasn’t how everybody was taught back then.

I believe there are many in the outdoor world that would disagree with the Fail Blog and herald the Ugg Croc Toe Shoe as the greatest shoe of all time.
For me? I have to agree with the Fail Blog but hey, whatever floats your boat...
Yep, looks safe to me. Where do I sign-up my gang?

The waterproof zippered bag comes with 3 lubricated condoms, 2 packets of lubrication, 4 wet wipes, 4 compressed towels, and one disposal bag.
I love the fact that the bag has reflective piping on it so you can quickly find it with a head lamp and that the package says that it’s for, “2 People for Up to 2 Nights.”
Get in on the action for $14.95.
I don’t have the facts to back this up but what you are seeing here is evidence of a top secret prototype lifejacket photographed with a long range telephoto lens.
No word on if the twisted strings around the bottles held together in the surf but I have it on good authority that you will be seeing it on the shelves of your local big-box store this Spring.

Tired of paying way too much for your kayak? Next time get yourself the Intex Challenger K1 Kayak supplied by
For only ₤30 you can get an inflatable kayak that is so well designed it feels like you are floating over the water when you paddle along as evidenced by the above photo-realistic representation on the packaging.
Thanks to Photoshop Disasters for the post.
Here is some inspiration for those who have always dreamed of building your own roof rack.
Heck, you need to save cash somehow to pay for that top of the line canoe or kayak don’t you?

I saw this posted over on the failblog and I couldn’t help but post it. I love the fact that a drunk tow boat operator tried to tow a broken down boat back home only to run out of gas because he went around in circles for hours. He then needed to get towed in by the boat that originally called for help.
You can’t make that stuff up.
The best comment over on the failblog related to the post was by Carlos:

Conan O’Brien and Andy Richter decided to get closer to nature but since they didn’t have much time they decided to visit their local raging current, The Los Angeles River.
Of course it all doesn’t go as planned and involves running aground, unscouted whitewater runs followed up by a pretty intense swiftwater rescue. In the end they decide to cap a successful day on the river with some freshly cooked wieners by the river bank.
Here is the video for your viewing pleasure:
It looks like Conan and Andy’s wild adventure was more successful than the Canadian band, Twin who were issued tickets for attempting to paddle down the same river back in the winter of 2011. Something happened while the case was working its way through the courts and due to some sort of administrative error, the band were issued bench warrants in the case. That means it’s possible that the band will get arrested if they try to come back into the US of A.
Oh course somebody is looking into getting it sorted out and you can read the whole weird story here. I tend to believe that this is the case of the Hollywood elite (Conan and Andy) putting pressure on the courts to send a message to the public, “Stay away from our amazing waterways. It’s our wilderness.”
