Fox Tossing by Buy.com (dba Rakuten.com Shopping)

In the spirit of Schott?s Miscellany and The Dangerous Book for Boys, a quirky collection of history?s most bizarre sports and stories of mankind?s most daring and ridiculous recreational pursuits?from baby boxing, to octopus wrestling, and ice tennis. Have you ever wondered what people did for fun throughout history? Edward Brooke-Hitching began to wonder the same thing while flipping through an eighteenth-century German book on hunting, and found a bygone sport in which German nobles launched foxes into the air. This random discovery of a game that slipped through the mainstream historical cracks led him to wonder: how many other sports have been left out of modern history accounts? Now, Brooke-Hitching shares his hilarious journey to discover the curious recreations contrived by mankind that have long since gone extinct (for good reason).Compiling more than 100 of the most puzzling, cruel, and ludicrous games that have ever been played, including Aerial Golf, Hidden Hunting, Ski Ballet, Eel Pulling, and many more, Brooke-Hitching chronicles an entertaining romp through forgotten leisurely pastimes that history wanted you to forget?and that you definitely shouldn?t try at home. An illuminating gift book filled with acerbic humor and charming illustrations, Fox Tossing is sure to be enjoyed by many?and will let you take solace in knowing that at least your grandfather wasn?t the genius who invented? Tortoise Racing,? or any of the other games too stupid, or too harmful to withstand the test of time.

2016 Jaguar F-Type R: A real sports car at last We're not sure what the "R" in our 2016 F-Type R Coupe stands for. "Really fast," maybe, since the British sports car comes with a 550 horsepower supercharged V8. Or "raucous," because it also has what Jaguar calls an "active exhaust" that increases the raspy roar with the flick of a switch. Or maybe "rare," because with a starting price of around $106,000 and about $126,000 as tested, not many people will be taking one home. 2015 Subaru Forester: Better than ever Subaru has set trends by never chasing them.

Instead, they are going for compact crossovers in droves, and substituting premium features for additional room. (Click here to read more). Source: The Portland Tribune - News
