A 7-year-old boy made $22 million in 2018 posting toy reviews on YouTube.
So what does that mean for you?
It’s time to quit that pesky job and become a full-time Vlogger!

Fact: 12% of all interstate highway deaths involve pedestrians with stalled vehicles on the shoulder.

I’m flying to Ohio tomorrow, where the temperature will be a whopping 37 degrees COLDER than where I am right now.
Which leaves me with two options:
1. Pack a winter coat to avoid freezing my ta-tas off.
2. Leave my coat at home so I actually have room for other stuff in my bag, you know, like underwear.
If only I had Pacum, a multi-functional handheld travel vacuum that helps you fit more stuff in less space.
Look, this jacket isn’t for everybody.
If I walked into work wearing one of these, people’s jaws would literally drop.
But that’s probably because I buy most of my clothes from T.J. Maxx for $14.99.
Point is, if you can pull off the look, this is a damn good jacket.
It features the tremendous functionality of a travel jacket with the undeniable style of a modern everyday coat.
It offers 28 trendy features blended with a classic look that’ll have you struttin’ around in style no matter where you go.

Apparently they call flashlights “torches” in England, where I imagine the discussion about this product sounds something like this:
“Ooo, ‘ello love! Fancy a tiny flashlight with your tea and crumpets?!”
Was that culturally insensitive? Sure. Is this a totally bad** mini flashlight? Absolutely!
It’s a crucial addition to your keychain made with 100% element-proof aerospace-grade aluminum that provides bright light in the smallest of spaces.

If you haven’t seen the Fyre Festival documentary on Netflix yet, watch it.
(Then watch the one on Hulu.)

You’re poolside at some fancy resort in the Bahamas when none other than MILA KUNIS walks up to you.
“Hey cutie,” she says “my phone’s dead and I need a light, can you help me out?”
Your eyes widen as you reach into your pocket and pull out the DualFuel, a revolutionary PowerBank, flameless lighter hybrid that will satisfy her strangely specific request with ease.

There’s just somethin’ about a smooth-writing pen.
It just feels right, you know?
And ladies and gentleman, let me be the first to tell you that this pen writes smoother than a Ryan Gosling pickup line.
It’s made of absurdly high-grade metal and designed to genuinely last a lifetime.
Odds are good that you won’t be handing down most pens you use today to your grandkids, but ManualPen is no ordinary pen.
Apparently I used to sit REALLY close to the TV when I was a kid.
But when my mom finally took me to the eye doctor, he ordered me a pair of glasses with rims thicker than the waistline of a Sperm whale.
Needless to say, these are a whole lot more stylish.
Lance Glasses combine 20 epic features in one pair of trendy glasses.
Each of their 20 styles come with lightweight frames that are impossibly durable, and feature anti-scratch, anti-glare lens to help you see your best.
I once drank water directly from a mountain stream.
