Bean Boozled - A Game of Russian Roulette with Jelly Beans

Have you heard of the Jelly Belly Jelly Bean game called Bean Boozled? BeanBoozled jelly beans have flavors that mimic the flavor and corresponding color of a conventional Jelly Belly jelly bean. In 2016, the fourth edition has two new flavors, Dead Fish (Strawberry Banana Smoothie) and Spoiled Milk (Coconut). The flavor Baby Wipes was dropped and replaced by Spoiled Milk (Coconut), and the flavor of Skunk Spray was dropped. Here are the weird flavors that compare each regular flavor:

Barf or Peach
Booger or Juicy Pear
Canned Dog Food or Chocolate Pudding
Dead Fish or Strawberry Banana Smoothie
Lawn Clippings or Lime
Moldy Cheese or Caramel Corn
Rotten Egg or Buttered Popcorn
Spoiled Milk or Coconut
Stinky Socks or Tutti-Frutti
Toothpaste or Berry Blue

Our team at Rath Auto Resources decided to give it a try.

Rooster's Fort Smith - A Fort Smith Beer You Probably Never Heard About

Rooster's Fort Smith Beer. A play on of Rooster Cogburn in the movie True Grit based in Fort Smith, Arkansas.  It's also a brew you have likely never heard about. Rooster's Brewing Company is based in the United Kingdom. 

Rooster's Fort Smith brew is an APA (American Pale Ale). According to BeerAdvocate, Fort Smith is a big and bold India Pale Ale, brewed using Citra and Chinook hops from the USA to create tropical and passion fruit aromas and a lasting, bitter finish. It's available year-round at 5% ABV (alcohol by volume).

We have never seen the ale anywhere in town. In fact, we discovered this beer while browsing Instagram. We have never tried purchasing Fort Smith online, but if it something you have any interest in, here are some of the links we found that offer it. 

You can also try contacting Rooster's Brewing Company personally if you wish. HELLO@ROOSTERS.CO.UK

According to Rooster's website, "

A brief summary since 1993

Hatched in 1993, at a time when most ales on the market were brown, Rooster’s Brewing Co. fast developed a reputation for brewing ground-breaking, hop-forward pale ales that showcase exciting new hops from the USA.

Fast forward over twenty years and we’re still crazy about hops and the flavours they impart on beer – our hop store is crammed full of varieties from all over the world; from Australia and New Zealand to Slovenia and North America. But that’s not to say we don’t enjoy playing around with other flavours and styles of beer along the way.

Beers such as Yankee® soon started to attract the attention of judges at beer festivals across the UK, racking up countless awards along the way. One of the original, new-style, pale ales to be brewed in the UK, Yankee® is now a modern classic.

Over the years the awards have kept coming, but on a slightly larger scale, with YPA® picking up back to back gold medals at the prestigious World Beer Cup in recent times, whilst Baby-Faced Assassin also won a medal at the 2015 International Beer Awards."

Back to the Future: Concept Cars of the Past - 1970 Ferrari Modulo

1970 Ferrari Modulo

Unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show in 1970 (in the pearl light blue colour), it won 22 international design awards for a “pure formal research, in its intentional geometricity”. The prototype was selected to represent the best of Italian coach building skill at the 1970 Osaka Expo and was displayed as envoy of Italian design, in Mexico City in 1971.

According to www.pininfarina.com, "The Modulo is characterized by two overlapping body shells, separated by a rectilinear indention on the waistline. Front assembly, canopy and trunk were joined in a single arching curve, the ample windshield was bordered by truncated come uprights that considerably lightened the extensive surface of the front assembly.  The stylistic progression of the side windows was repeated in impression on the lower section of the module, in sheet metal. The rear assembly attracted attention by the fairing around the wheels, which joins up with the bodywork, creating a cylindrical motif of particular originality. Access to the passenger compartment is obtained by sliding the entire cupola, include the windscreen, on special guides. The interior of the cockpit was spare, with two anatomically shaped and highly elongated seats, enveloping, providing a correct driving position and perfect anchoring of the driver and passenger. Interesting feature is represented by the adoption of two spherical turning elements working as orientable aerator and as a support for the main controls."

Jessica Jones -  A Marvel show with a second season to be released, Jessica Jones is by far one of our favorites. "Ever since her short-lived stint as a superhero ended in tragedy, Jessica Jones has been rebuilding her personal life and career as a hot-tempered, sardonic private detective in Hell's Kitchen, New York City.

Back to the Future: Concept Cars of the Past

Mercedes Lotec C1000

C is for carbon Fibre and 1000 for it's horsepower, the Mercedes Lotec C1000 was built in 1991 for the wealthiest Arab businessmen who wanted to drive the wealthiest individually owned cars that existed in the world. 

Mercedes-Benz spent 5 years building the guts of the car while they contracted Lotec (a German sport car manufacturer) to build the chassis (frame of the car). It was a 5.6 liter V8 with twin turbochargers that operated on both unleaded gasoline and aircraft fuel. 

Being an oil baron, finances were not of concern for purchasing a 3.4 million dollar sport car. The car was capable of going from 0-60mph in 3.2 seconds, 0-125 in 8.08 seconds and a top speed of 268 mph. Despite the original cost of the car, it is being offered for $1.2 million according to gtspirit.com

"A couple of years ago, the C1000 was auctioned off at one of the Barrett-Jackson auction for $243,000. Only a few months later, the car was found on eBay with an asking price of $350,000 from a dealership in Georgia. Since then, it's been off the radar. We're not exactly sure why it's shown up at this tiny dealership in the town of Concorde, North Carolina. What's even more disheartening is the car seems to be in several pieces now. We'd like to imagine that it was broken when someone tried jumping it over a river, but that's just us (hat tip to Jason!) [ via s2k forums]"
