See If Sex Really Does Sell.
Until recently, our knowledge of nanotechnology was extremely limited. Really, brief experiences with mid-'90s digi-pets aside, we knew next to nothing at all.
But all that changed when we discovered this video for the miracle that is NeverWet.
Somehow, through the wonders of nanoscience, the product's creators were able to invent a spray that inexplicably makes everyday household items water repellent. Mind-blowingly so. Just think of all the practical applications for the spray: You can water-proof your iPhone, stain-proof your clothing, rain-proof your car's windshield. The possibilities are endless.
Maybe you should grab some tonight and let your imagination run wild.
Just don't get any on your hands. We don't know how you'd ever wash it off.

Slumberbuzz, Sam Vicari and Howler Jr. at Bryan Street Tavern
Psych-shoegazers Slumberbuzz headline this free show during the tavern's weekly half-price pizza night. The band's heavily textured melodies should pair nicely with the alt-pop experimentation of the two opening acts, Sam Vicari and Denton three-piece Howler Jr. A free show and half-price eats? You'll have been to worse and paid more, we promise. — Stephen Young
Hormones, Caustic Casanova and I'm The One Who's Fighting at The Crown & Harp
