BeingSean: Friday Night Races And A Happy Father’s Day Weekend

Thank you, Andrea and Syd, for an AWESOME WEEKEND!!! I loved every minute of it. AND Happy Fathers Day guys!!!!!
– BeingSean.com

The realest talk. Give Dad what he really wants on Father’s Day, and he’ll be head-over-heels. Not because it’s required (real Dads don’t need a ‘day’ to recognize that), but just because… and out of real love. Awesome piece from the homie Sean. Check it out.

Father’s Day weekend was a little different for me this year in that Syd is spending the entire summer with her mom versus one month. See I’m used to Syd being at the house for most of the summer and this year I had to do the “I’m the summer dad” pickup for the weekend. It was… weird. 

Andrea and Syd both asked me what I wanted to do well in advance but as most dads know, we don’t need a special day to tell us we are great dads. Syd suggested we go to the Friday night drag races which is something we both enjoy doing. Andrea has never been so this was a first for her. Side note… (more)

Did You Know That Bob Ross Did Much More Than Paint On PBS? (Video)

I thought about whether or not many of you are even old enough to remember how awesome “The Joy Of Painting” and host Bob Ross were. PBS was home to some great television. And if watching Ross paint ‘happy trees’ gave you joy back in the day, too, you will likely be as wow’d as I was (in a good way) when you learn even more about the PBS icon.

He inspired generations of young people to paint, but did you know these facts about him?

A Look At The ‘Jet Capsule’ Mini Yacht (Video)

Talk about a Lil Yachty (ha)! This lil spaceship-looking Jet Capsule boat lets you explore the ocean. Pricey, but not as much as the full-size luxury yachts you see in the most bling-a-licious music visuals and such. Who needs all that and the tab anyway.

Forget a yacht — and say hello to the Jet Capsule.

Build Your Own Mini Boat (Video)

Toys for the water! This DIY boat is dope with extra awesome sauce boss! Wonder if they make a submarine kit, or maybe plan to. At the price point here, even the thriftiest enthusiast could end up with a fleet in a few short years.

These made to order $950 kits will allow you to build your very own mini boat at home.

American company Rapid Whale has created “Mini Boat,” a miniature boat measuring 6ft in length and around 50kg in weight. Mini Boat is powered by two 12-volt batteries, allowing the miniature rig to reach a top speed of 4 mph.

Real Talk On How To Win At Sports Betting (Video)

If you can’t take losses. Don’t bet. Recognize that truth. Play responsibly (or maybe go throw some darts).

Yeah. Folks might call it ‘recreational betting’ but it’s not a game… Put your money under the rock and leave it for the winner. Want some tips to better your odds as a better (e.g. to collect what is under the aforementioned metaphorical rock) at the end of the day? Well, watch.

Technology/Gaming: Learn To Make Car Repairs In Virtual Reality (Video)

Perhaps not an age-old question, but a cool one to answer: “Can I learn to fix race cars without risking damage to something expensive (like a car, or myself)?” “Oh wait, follow up, I don’t have a car, garage or tools of my own; does that matter much?. Oh, and wait, do I have to get ‘dirty’ and stuff?” Hahaaa!

Fix your car…in VR!

It’s time to get your car ready for racing without getting your hands dirty. “Wrench” is an indie game for virtual reality that lets players assemble photorealistic components for a custom race car. Players diagnose problems with their speed machines and try to fix them.

The game is still in development, and the developers say it won’t include any driving simulation either.

Well, there’s your answer!

Remember When That Cliffside Shop Was Giving Out Free Jackets? (Video)

Ah! Here’s what looks like a winner for best response to when bae pops up like, “Honey, let’s go shopping,” all excited and *ish. Just make sure bae’s not a climbing enthusiast, and you can have your weekend back… Sheeeeit! They haven’t made a jacket worth a death-defying rock climb. Sorry, so NOT sorry. HA!

A pop-up clothing shop lets you get warm 300 feet up.

Cocona set up a shop 300 feet in the air in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon. Climbers earned the clothing simply by making the ascent up the canyon’s Bastille Wall — no purchase necessary.

Cocona wants to show off their clothing, which is based on “37.5 technology” — it keeps climbers’ body temperature at 37.5 degrees Celsius, or 99.5 degrees Fahrenheit. Many climbers claim that temperature is ideal for endurance.

70 Year Olds Try Smoking Weed For The First Time (Video)

Bwaaahahaaa! THIS is why, though I am not a consumer, I am cool with having the doobie-doers around. No personal politics in this video one way or the other. Just some dudes who have gone all their lives without taking even one hit off a joint, now deciding to fire up and fuse up. The result is informative and incredibly funny (looking at you, Graham)!

Plus… there are snacks!

See All The Nice Rides At The Atlanta Car & Bike Show (Video)

Cars, cars, cars are the stars! Shining liked they were just dipped in the sweetest glaze. Couple of bikes in this vid, too. If you see a fly & flashy motor vehicle and it gets your motor running, this visual has much whip appeal for YOU!
