What do you get when you ask 200,000 baristas to help design a water bottle? That’s what Troy Lendman, the founder of Barista Life — a community of over 200,000 baristas — did when he wanted to create a water bottle that could keep liquids hot or cold for hours on end. Lendman asserts that since we trust baristas to make our coffee, we should trust them when it comes to creating a water bottle.

What they came up with is The Barista Bottle, which is “designed by guys who know liquids better than anyone else.” The minimal Barista Bottle has double-walled, vacuum insulated technology, which means that it keeps liquids hot for 12+ hours, and cold for 22+ hours, so that after you pack it, you have all day to enjoy your beverage at the right temperature. There’s also a removable tea filter, so that you can brew hot tea or iced tea, or infuse your water with fruit. Plus, it keeps the ice from falling onto your face. The Barista Bottle only carries 16.9 ounces, so you can tote it around with you anywhere. It also fits in your car’s cup holder and the textured exterior means that it won’t slip out of your hand. And, you may not realize this, but by using The Barista Bottle, you’re also helping the environment because you’re avoiding using plastic bottles that aren’t biodegradable and remain a large source of pollution.

You can use The Barista Bottle on endless activities: make fruit-infused cocktails for an outdoor picnic or keep your tea warm while skiing in the winter. Want ice-cold drinks that will keep cool no matter how hot it is outside? The Barista Bottle will do that for you too. Plus, at only $20, it’s a lot more affordable than other water bottles.

If you're scared of clowns or haunted cars, this isn't the list for you

The long-time author is one of the most successful writers of his generation, and his spooky, cinematic settings have served as inspiration for some of Hollywood's most esteemed creatives. The best Stephen King movies often use the source material as a basis for the film, and then the directors put their own twist on the story to pull the audience in even more. From Stanley Kubrick to Rob Reiner, famous filmmakers have operated within their own framework to turn otherwise forgotten Stephen King books into some of the most beloved of the last 40 years. These are the best Stephen King movies made from the best Stephen King books. These pictures range from coming-of-age stories to horrifying science fiction classics.

"Most guys don't think about what bar of soap they use when they are washing their body. Let's face it, they're probably still using the soap your mommy bought for her little man. Is that what you want? To smell like mommy's little man?"

The opening of many of the advertisements from Dr. Squatch feels less like a commercial and more like a skit that you would actually stay and pay attention to. It reminds us of 20 years ago when Geico introduced the cavemen and kept us watching commercials instead of taking the opportunity to go to the bathroom. It is a soap made for men, according to them, "men who build things, men who open the pickle jar on the first try, and men who catch foul balls without spilling their beer."

Laundry Sauce detergent pods for divine-scented laundry.

Most laundry detergents come in the same boring scents, the same uninspired packaging, and the same goopy, unpleasant format – seriously, what do they put in these bottles? Take a quick stroll down any detergent aisle, and you’ll see and smell a spring breeze, crisp linen, or intense fresh, whatever that means. They use a lot of the same aromas and just slap different names on the labels, too. Sure, doing laundry is a necessity, but surely there’s a way to make it more fun. There must be something better than an “intense” or “crisp” aroma.
