Although it might sound like a dream, living on coffee alone is not so wise. There are some positives like reducing the risk of Type 2 diabetes and some cancers, but that's just with regular consumption. Like two or three cups a day. Going on an all-coffee diet leads to excess amounts of caffeine and causes headaches, nausea, restlessness and muscle spasms. Overdosing on it can even lead to more series problems like comas, trouble breathing, and cardiac arrest. So go ahead, enjoy your espressos and americanos. Just remember to keep it in moderation.

Geodesic domes are incredibly strong for their weight, making them an ideal shape for a tent. Our stealth version of Heimplanet's original tent retains all the features that made it an icon. Thanks to double-layer airbeams, all setup consists of is rolling out the tent, closing the valves, and using the included pump to inflate the entire structure. The diamond-like grid provides support for the polyester ripstop flysheet and ripstop nylon inner tent, while a vestibule keeps the entrance dry and a detachable gear loft offers added storage. A multi-chamber safety system allows compromised pieces of the airframe to be isolated and repaired or replaced, and the geodesic design offers an additional benefit: the ability to hold strong in high winds.

When designing new uniforms for the NBA, Nike didn't start with fabric or fit. They started with research. Lots and Lots of research. Beginning in their Sports Research Lab, they put athletes through their paces, tracking everything from their movement to their temperature. Using this data, they create the game-day apparel you see on the court today.
