Ariel Atom 3

For those of you that are unfamiliar with the Arial Atom, it is basically a super sized street legal go cart that?s faster than most $500,000+ exotic sports cars. This amazing machine weighs only 1,400 pounds and produced between 200 and 300 horsepower (depending on which model you get). This combination makes for a power to weight ratio that is more impressive than almost every other supercar. For more information on the Arial Atom you might want to check out my previous post about the original Arial Atom racecar.

CREWKERNE, England ? It’s hard to believe that the Ariel Atom could be improved upon since it is such a pure, bare bones, racecar. Difficult as it might be the third generation Arial Atom 3, just released in England has a number of small changes, all geared towards making this minimalist street legal go cart from hell even faster.

The upgraded Ariel Atom 3 chassis now offers Bilstein 10-way adjustable shocks and new motor mounts both of which cut down on vibration and allow for a much smoother ride (without jeopardizing road feel). New diagonal side rails result in 3.9 inches more elbow room and 2.4 inches of hip room inside the cockpit. Ariel also lowered the seating position (helping to improve comfort and lower the center of gravity). Engine choices include normally aspirated and supercharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder units, delivering up to 300 horsepower.

The Ariel Atom managed to win the title of the fastest car in the world on the 0-100 mph-0 sprint. Autocar took 29 of the fastest cars in the world, and the Arial Atom set a record time of 11.35 seconds. It beat all of its competitors, including: a Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera, Brooke Double R, Porsche 911 GT3, Roush Ford GT 600RE and the Mercedes CL63 AMG just to name a few…! Not to shabby for a car that costs less than $100,000.

Buy Dom Perignon at Costco without a membership

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Advice, Premium Comedy



In order to make this article “premium posts” worthy I decided I would share a way to buy “Dom Perignon” at a discount warehouse club store without being a “card carrying club member”. :) If I remember correctly, a bottle of 1998 Dom Perignon at Costco is about $100 while the same bottle of Dom Perignon will cost you upwards of $130 at most other stores.
Dom Perignon

Please note that in addition to Dom Perignon, this will work for all types of alcohol! So, if you rest assured that in most areas, this trick also applies to all top shelf liquor, booze, beer and wine as well!

So, if your one of those people that loves “sticking it to the man” or if you’re the type of person that enjoys causing “a scene” in public, and you like being “that guy” that holds up the line while the clerk calls for a manager (over the loud speaker), than this experiment is for you! Thanks to a little-known state law that dates back to the 1930s, (when Prohibition was repealed); nonmembers can purchase alcohol without paying a membership fee. These laws state that applicants for a license to sell booze must “serve the public need and protect the common good.” In other words, alcohol is an invaluable and essential item that must be readily available for purchase by the general public with no membership restrictions! ;) HaHa

Taking advantage of this deal depends on where you live, and at which discount club you shop. This should work at BJ’s Wholesale Club, Costco and Sam’s Club. For example, if you live near a Costco than membership is not required for purchases of alcohol in the following states: Arizona, California, Connecticut, Read more…

Burning Salt Water

Author: Julien  //  Category: Uncategorized

Just when you think you understand how physics and chemisty works someone goes and does something like this:

In an recent (accidental) discovery, an inventor was able to actually set saltwater on fire by exposing it to electromagnetic rays! Yup… they set water on fire! In fact, it is now believed that some day in the not so distant future the burning of water might become an alternative source of energy.

It all happened less than a few months ago when John Kanzius, a Washington County native, was attempting to desalinate ocean water with a generator he developed to treat cancer. During his experiment he noticed an unexpected flash in the test tube. Within a few short days John had reproduced this unexpected result and had the saltwater (which was exposed to radio frequencies) in a test tube burning like a candle. This recent, ground breaking discovery has sparked scientific interest and there is hope that someday the world’s most abundant substance (saltwater) might be able to function as a clean fuel (among other things).

The basic idea behind this new discovery is that the precise radio frequency weakens the bonds holding that hold together the constituents of salt water (sodium chloride, hydrogen and oxygen) and releases the hydrogen witch is then flamable and once ignited can burn continuously while exposed to the RF energy field. The flame’s temperature burns at an amazing 3,000+ degrees Fahrenheit and generates a tremendious amount of energy. Still it is not known if the energy output from the burning hydrogen is Read more…

P.S. I just ordered a couple bracelets and looked everywhere for them. They cost about $5 at the NBC store which was cheaper than anywhere else. Let me know if you find them for less, but they were selling on eBay for almost $15… Ouch!

Worlds fastest car: Barabus TKR

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Automotive

Barabus Sportscars (a specialty engine and vehicle manufacturer) recently unvailed what is being hailed as the worlds fastest steet legal car. The Barabus TKR produces 1005 horsepower and the automaker says is capable of doing zero to 60 mph in 1.67 seconds! Even crazier is that the car has a reported top speed of 270 mph (almost 20mph faster than the Bugatti Veyron). The powerplant in the Barabus TKR is a 6.0 liter V8 twin-turbocharged engine with dual intercoolers. The car has a full carbon fiber body and chassis. It appears as though the automaker will sell the car for about $500,000 and there will be between 300 and 400 produced within the 3 year production run.

Iran so far away SNL skit

Author: Julien  //  Category: Premium Comedy, Premium Fun and Entertainment

My friend Bobby just sent me a link to this SNL skit entitled “Iran so Far Away”. Its another Andy Samberg creation and although I dont think it is as good as the Emmy award winning Dick in a Box skit with Justin Timberlake, it is definately going to be another classic! This time Andy teams up with Adam Levine from Maroon 5. Let me know what you think!

In case you want to sing along here are the lyrics:
SNL?s ?Iran So Far? Lyrics
They say true love comes only once in a lifetime
And even though we?re from opposite ends of the earth
My heart tells me you?re the one for me

Mahmood, I remember when it started, saw you on the news
You hating gays, I was eating food
I was feeling you, and even though I disagree with almost everything you said
You ain?t wrong to me, so strong to me, you belong to me
Like a very hairy Jake Gyllenhaal to me
Mahmoud, make my heart beating out of my chest
my mind says no but my body says yes
You ain?t no threat, the only threat I see, is the threat of you not coming home with me
Our love for each other is like when atoms collide
Can?t express how I feel, and yo Adam let?s ride

And Iran, Iran so far away is your home, but in my heart you?ll stay

He ran, for the president of Iran
We ran together to a tropical island
My man, Mahmoud is known for violence
Smiling, if he can still do it then I can
They call you weasel, they say your methods are medieval
You can play the Jews, I can be your Jim Caviezel

S&M, when we?re wrestlin?
You can be the port that I put my vessel in
So I try to do it but you can still see me
With your sleepy brown eyes, butter pecan thighs
And your hairy butt? Yeah.

And Iran, Iran so far away
Come home, and in my arms you?ll stay
Used to look at the stars and dream
Around the world the same stars we?re seeing
And a twinkle in your eyes Mahmoud

Talk smooth to me, in the night sky
With you pants high waisted, damn so fly
We can take a trip to the animal zoo
And laugh at all the funny things that animals do
Like Eugene, you got me straight trippin? boo
Hope you look at my eyes and say I?m trippin? too
You say what but they already do
You should know by now, it?s you

You crazy for this world Mahmoud
So give us another Holocaust all you want
But you can?t deny that there?s something between us
I know you say there?s no gays in Iran
But you?re in New York now baby
So time to stop hating and start living
