This Extra Mattress Rolls Up Into a Chair During the Day

by Andrew Liszewski

Transforming a convertible sofa into a bed can sometimes seem more complex than Optimus Prime changing into a truck. For a more compact emergency bed that's easier to move wherever you need it, check out Campeggi's Girella chair, which is as simple to transform as unrolling a sleeping bag.

You've Always Got a Place To Sit When Your Backpack Turns Into a Stool

by Andrew Liszewski

Unless you're just wandering off into the wilderness for a week, there's often a lot of waiting involved when traveling—whether it's for a flight, a hotel room, a taxi, or even dinner. So for all those times when you're stuck in line with no place to sit, the Bagobago might actually be the best traveling companion since it's a lightweight backpack with a compact stool built right in.

"Natural" Flavorings Are Bullshit 

by Sarah Zhang

In one of those naked PR moves, Nestlé announced today it would only use natural flavorings and colors in its candy. Which means it's a good time to remember that is "natural" does not mean better. The natural stuff is just as processed, and comes from places like beaver butts and insects.

Seeing an avalanche form right before your eyes is absolutely terrifying

by Casey Chan

Seeing an avalanche form right before your eyes is absolutely terrifying

The ground just starts cracking right in front of the snowboarder. I mean, what do you even do when the ground fractures and the snow murmurs and life glitches like that? What do you do when you have two seconds to realize you're screwed and to come up with a plan to unscrew yourself? You can't do anything, really.

Зимен преход до хижа Козя Стена

by Evgeni

Снегът едва беше посипал дърветата, когато наближих хижа Хайдушка песен. Снегоходките нямаше да ми бъдат от полза. Оставих ги и поех нагоре през смълчаната, побеляла гора, на резерват Козя Стена.

Докато вървях обгърнат от белота, в нетипична тишина, си припомних предишният ми преход по тази пътека в един безкрайно дъждовен юнски ден.

И също, както тогава, мъглата ми беше верен спътник.

Притихналата гора от време на време изсипваше шепи сняг върху ми от натежалите си клони.

Когато излязох на открито, пейзажът беше напълно погълнат от мъглата.

След като не срещнах указателни пилони и теренът ставаше все по-непроходим по зимния път, се върнах и продължих по познатия летен маршрут. Близо до хижата снегът беше утъпкан, не очаквах вътре да има някой. Хижарят ме разубеди да остана вечерта, нямаше изглед мъглата да се разсее и през следващия ден.

Оставаше час до залез и без колебание поех обратно по вече отъпканата пътека. Когато приближих седловината излезе страхотен вятър, който малко изчисти картинката.

Непрогледното було на мъглата леко се повдигна и откри гледка към отсрещния хребет, където облаци танцуваха безумен танц в своите ледени владения.
