About five years ago, a video began circulating on the internet of what appears to be a Middle Eastern man firing a gun, falling backwards from the recoil, and breaking a glass door. Then he says something that sounds like "Willy Bob". That was the only part of the video I ever saw, and was probably emailed to me at least 30 times. In honor of Throwback Friday, I was going to post that video but decided to do a little bit of research instead. I found out something about both the gun and the video.

A few years ago, we told you about the release of the Nike shoe that Marty McFly wore in Back To The Future: Part Two. Officially, they are known as the 2011 Nike Mags, but we like to call them the McFly's. The shoes were a limited edition of 1,500 pairs that were auctioned off on eBay with the proceeds going to The Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson's disease research. Initially, the shoes started off around $10,000 per pair, but the winning bids went as high as $90,002. Normally, we would be upset that these shoes weren't made for the mass market, but donating the money to the Michael J. Fox Foundation more than made up for the fact that... Read More
