Been Dreaming of a Hoverboard? This One Is Only $88 at Walmart

So many of us have been waiting for the moment those hoverboards from Back to Future become real. While there are similar devices available, questionably called hoverboards, and they’ve improved over time, the one we want just isn’t here yet. That’s okay because what we do have is pretty cool, anyway.

Like the Fluxx FX3 Hoverboard that Walmart has on sale right now for over half off. It’s a self-balancing scooter with some big wheels, and bright LED headlights. You can get it for $88 with free shipping in black, blue, pink, or teal. A fantastic deal wouldn’t you say?

The Fluxx FX3 can support up to 176 pounds and has a max speed of up to 6.2 miles per hour. Thanks to dual 200-watt motors — 400 watts total — and a highly efficient battery, there’s plenty of power on display. It can ride for up to 3.1 miles at a time, on just a single charge, and the design of the board means it can go in any direction and rotate 360 degrees locally. Because it’s a slower board overall, you can use it safely indoors and out, although you’ll need plenty of room!

LEDs built into the wheels and the board light up at night, illuminating the roads or sidewalks. They also make it easier to position your feet on the board in low-light conditions. The 6.5-inch large wheels are big enough to handle most terrain, and certainly offer a smooth ride on asphalt. The intelligent self-balancing system will keep the rider level and safe during a trip. Just hop on and go! It’s a great system to travel short distances faster than walking or to give your sore feet a break.

Walmart is offering the Fluxx FX3 Hoverboard for $111 off, normally $199, so you’re getting it for $88 with free shipping. That’s an insane deal, especially if you look at comparable boards which are much more expensive. Plus, it comes in several colors including black, blue, pink, and teal, and all of them are on sale for $88.

Want to climb to the top of the world? Here’s how long it takes to climb Mount Everest
How long does an ascent of Mount Everest really take?
Mount Everest with prayer flags in the foreground

The prospect of standing on top of the world has lured thousands of mountain climbers to Mount Everest since the first successful attempt by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay 70 years ago. Commercial expeditions began in the 1990s, and since then — not counting the 2015 season disrupted by the catastrophic earthquake or the recent Covid-affected seasons — the number of climbers has increased dramatically.

Climbing Mount Everest may be popular, but the difficulty of reaching the highest point on earth should not be underplayed. Ignoring the hefty price tag associated with an Everest expedition, there's the sheer physical exertion of climbing to that altitude. Unless you plan to recreate Killian Jornet's feat of summiting twice in one week without supplementary oxygen — don't try this — then you'll need to set aside serious time for your ascent to the top of the world. So exactly, how long does it take to climb Mount Everest?

What does par mean in golf? Better understand golf lingo to up your game
A person taking a swing on the golf course.

Trying to keep score in sports like basketball is pretty simple. There are only a few ways to score, and it's all number-based, so keeping track of what shot gets you what points isn't hard to remember. But in a sport like golf, not only is the scoring a little different, the points aren't always tracked in numbers. Get a birdie? Have a handicap? What about par? What does par mean in golf? Here's how to understand this golf term so you can focus on your swing.
What does par means in golf

In its most basic definition, par is the predetermined number of strokes it will take a player with a zero handicap to finish a hole, round, or course, with room for two strokes on the putting green. To completely understand it, you need to know what a handicap in golf is.
Handicap rundown
A handicap is simply the number of strokes a golfer will take over or under the par number. If the 18-hole round you are playing is a 72-par course, and it takes you 85 swings to finish, subtract 85 from 72, and you are left with a 13 handicap.
