Things to do for May 13, 2010
Your Future, the Playboy Mansion and Metal Booze
The weekend is worth the wait.
The Playboy Mansion Can Now Be Yours
Well, part of it anyway. An apartment in Hef's original love shack—located in Chicago, near Lake Shore
Drive—has gone up for sale. Your home would include a private patio and access to a private garden. We
hear Hef always preferred the hedges trimmed.
See Yourself in 20 Years
Good news: we've seen the future, and you look the way you do now, only better. (We know, we know—who
thought it was possible?) Anyway, just to make sure, though, you might want to take a gander at this site,
which will take a photo of you and age it 20 years. Your move, Clooney.
Introducing the Steel Drinking Straw
Even the most paint-peeling cocktail looks a bit dainty when you drink it through a straw. The solution: not
using a straw. But this steel number, right out of the mint julep playbook, is a step in the right
direction. And it goes well with your copper tiki umbrella.
What Your Facebook Page Is Worth
You can't put a price on friendship. Except, now you can. Copy your page's URL into this site, and it will
tell you what it's worth, based on how many friends you have, how many friends they have and how often you
update. Maybe you shouldn't have killed
your Facebook after all.
A Flexible Tripod
You have a way with pictures—your portraits hang from gallery walls, and your homemade remake of Basic
Instinct has earned literally dozens of fans. But to take your shots to the next level (or at least
keep your camera level until that Steadicam arrives), you need something like this tiny, magnetic rubber
tripod. Photography always benefits from something tiny, magnetic and rubber.
