Thor "The Mountain" Björnsson is an Icelandic professional strong man and actor best known for popping people's heads like grapefruits on the TV series Game Of Thrones. Björnsson was recently in Sydney to promote Sodastream and raise awareness about plastic bottle pollution in Australia. We asked Björnsson to share his top five power-training tips for beginners.
Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.
One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.
We would never tell you to go out and get a Sodastream just to make cocktails like this, but if you have one, here's something else you can use it for beyond just making soft drinks or soda water. The folks at VinePair have a few great cocktail recipes that actually work well in the Sodastream and turn out drinks you'll want to share.
As you'll have noticed, we're doing evil things with a 12kg Gummy Bear right now. In the spirit of our recent Sodamite experiment, it only seemed reasonable to hack the bear's foot off, melt it and try and use it as a drink flavouring for SodaStream. A little surprisingly, the results were even worse than using Vegemite.
We know that the SodaStream Genesis works well as a source of carbonated drinks. We know that it's more economical if you use your own flavours. And we're an Australian site. Clearly, there was only one thing to be done: use the office SodaStream to make a Vegemite-flavoured beverage. It's time for Sodamite. (Be careful how you spell that.)
When I wrote up our office experience with the SodaStream Genesis, some readers asked just how much money you can save using the device. The answer? It's actually possible to buy ready-made soft drink about the same, so the value equation depends on your preferences.
In prehistoric times when I was a teenager, the SodaStream was an object of aspiration for many families, while the Kidman boys sobbed into their No Frills cordial. It eventually disappeared into the same retail vacuum as Amstrad 3-inch floppy discs, but since 2010 Sodastream has returned to the market. Does it still do the biz when it comes to the fizz?
