Car, Microbrewery, Car, Microbrewery. If you're a real beer-head the decision isn't difficult, but for the rest of us it isn't that easy. The Hammacher Schlemmer Professional Microbrewery ($45,000) gives you everything you need to create anything from a refreshing lager, to a full-bodied stout. All you have to do is enter a recipe on the touch screen computer and the HERM takes over the rest of the process. The hot liquor tank circulates heated water to a mash/lauter tun which extracts water from your grain or mash. The liquid then goes to the boil kettle where it's converted into wort and then to the 14 gallon fermentation tank. All aspects of the brewing process are monitored and relayed to the computer, so you can just sit back and enjoy your creations.

The Cayman models have come a long way. Because the trim levels start around $50K Cayman was considered to be a poor man's Porsche. But they've just released their first GTS version and are doing a great job shedding that rep.

The GTS features matte-black exterior inserts as well as blackout headlamp and taillamp covers. It sits on 20-inch Carrera S 235/35 front and 265/35 rear wheels, and features a sport exhaust system with black pipes. On the interior you'll get an Alcantara wrapped steering wheel, and sport seats with the letters 'GTS' embroidered into the headrests.
As fars as the power plant goes, you'll get a six-speed manual or seven-speed PDK dual-clutch automatic transmission paired with a 3.4 liter flat-six engine with direct fuel injection. This setup will get you 340 horses that can reach 60 mph in 4.6 seconds and a top speed of 177 mph.
http://youtu.be/STHpMUYeznQ OK someone at The Learn for Life Foundation is seriously missing the point. But to start, The Learn for Life Foundation out of Western Australia is a non-profit organization that promotes the importance of education. They even have a cute little girl on their website holding an oversized pencil to relay that message. So they decided to put together a PSA to drive the point home even further. The problem this shocking snuff film overlooks is if a hot chick wants you to skip school and go to the beach, your going and no PSA is going to stop you.
