In the same way that ages of trees are determined by the rings they contain within, you can consider a man's measuring stick to be his whiskers. They come in all shapes, sizes and textures but one this is for certain; they will all end up grey. Thick or thin, long or short, cropped or unkempt, the hair that grows on a mans chin says a lot more about the time he has spent on this planet than you might realize. You cannot rush growing a beard, some men simply can't manage it and there are thousands across the world who have turned it into an art form. Any fans of facial fuzz will have fun with A Book of Beards ($25).

Mike Shouts had another great find the other day. The RGBM Rubber Band Gun ($85+) is one of the coolest gadgets I've seen come out in a long time. The RGBM is a fully automatic rubber band gun that is made out of CNC'd oak plywood, can fire up to 672 rubber bands in one session at a rate of 14 shots per second. And don't worry if you were thinking that loading all those rubber bands would be a pain in the butt, the RGBM comes with a fast charging device that allows you to quickly load 14 rubber bands at one time. I don't know any guy who wouldn't want to get one of these as a gift. Check out the video of the gun in action after the break.(more…)
