  1. Wow, Glen Korg had a very different life 72,000 years ago. Good for him!

  2. To be fair he (Michael Phelps) has come back with a vengeance and won everything else since, breaking records along the way.

  3. At least most of the comments on the cocoa butter-less chocolate article are of the “what the —-?” variety…

  4. The shake weight? Hilarious. I can think of a very similar exercise women can do that would also please the man in their life. And for no extra cost!

  5. I’ll take my chocolate fat and melty, thank you very much.

  6. The Shake Weight does seem like a muscle-memory trainer for..other things.
