If, for whatever reason, you've decided that simply biting your fingernails isn't the best way to keep them short, you'll want to invest in a nice trimmer. But not some giant monstrosity that requires a purse or a murse to keep it on hand. Go for Kershaw's ultra-thin nail clippers that fold down to an easily pocketable 4mm package.
In a horrifying real-life cross between Happy Gilmore and a Bon Jovi song, a man accidentally shot himself in the heart with a 10cm nail while trying to un-jam a nail gun. Somehow, he survived.
There are plenty of odd USB drives out there—especially ones shaped like food. But those drives are meant for happy-go-lucky types that may or may not have an eating disorder. But what about hotheads that have a love/hate relationship with their computer? Plankon's 1GB "Nailed" USB drive fills that void with a design that almost begs short-tempered nerds to smash an unruly laptop with a hammer. Available for the steep price of US$45.
If Home Improvement was still on the air, this is exactly the kind of modified tool Tim Allen would have used to create an entire episode's worth of grunting wombat noises. He may even have shot that sidekick of his, Al, for minutes worth of canned laughter.
Tool and machine gun fan David Wiggins created the mod in response to another machine-nail-gun he saw online. He didn't think twice about it after having just picked up a new M16 (as you do).
Apparently is can drive a nail through a 2 x 4 at 200 yards. Not that you'd want to try that, of course. In any case, I highly doubt that DeWalt will be looking to bring this new line to market - at least not in Australia. Maybe in gun-loving America, but not down under.

The Giz, as you know, is a big fat fan of modding (and, it goes without saying, big fat modders) but this moddable MicroSD card reader from ADTEC in Japan is definitely one for the girly girls. Plain, cheap and plastic in the before pic, hit the jump to see the tasteful "after" picture.
What the hell is wrong with people? Seriously. Anyone who has seen the endless stream of Jackass copycat videos floating out there knows all to well that there are some frighteningly stupid people out there. As if you needed yet another example, check out this vid featuring a bunch of tools testing out their homemade nail gun bazooka. Spoiler: It doesn't end well.
Where others use watercolors, one man uses metal. This artist (if you know his name, hit the comments) re-creates masterpieces using nothing but nails. The process appears to utilize a computer grid to map dots onto plyboard—we're betting a projector and pencil is used—after which the artist nails thousands of metallic dots onto his "canvas." He's the Monet of metal, in a sense, with yet another trick up his sleeve—toothpicks. galleryPost('NailArt', 4, 'NailArt');
