If you’re sitting on a boat in Lake Constance, are you in three countries at once? Or just in one? Does it even matter? Because strangely, it turns out there are parts of the world where no-one really minds when international borders are not just ignored, but are completely undefined.
In the world of heritage/reproduction products with a focus on quality and sustainability, leather is right up there as one of the most commonly seen materials. Brands like Tanner Goods and Corter Leather champion hand-made goods that should last years and years. However, anyone looking to buy should be aware of what they’re paying for when it comes to leather products, and that means knowing at least a handful of the different grades of leather.
We’d like to set it straight for those confused by all the options out there. Although the below list does not include every last kind of leathers, it features the different quality grades every consumer should know before making a purchase.

As we sped toward downtown Hangzhou, past hulking construction projects that could each rival the skylines of most American cities, my cab driver seemed stumped. “Shengzhou? Where is that?” he asked me, amazed to encounter an American who hadn’t come to Hangzhou for its Buddhist temples or pagoda-lined West Lake. I had flown into his cosmopolitan city instead for its bus station, from which I would take a two-hour trip to a nearby town he’d never heard of. “What on earth are you doing there?”

Noah Forman is a NYC ride-share driver and used to drive a yellow cab. Here he attempts a record run at hitting consecutive green lights while driving in Manhattan NY. He gets an estimated 240 of them. (News sources actually counted and came up with 236 green lights). What the record is we have no idea. But I’m going to call it this run of 240 of them unless someone shows us video proof of someone beating this one.

“A gentleman diagnosed with diabetes one week prior had been given a new prescription that hadn’t been agreeing with him. This was the outcome of his first blackout. He left the roadway, through a field, a tree, a fence, into my master bedroom, through my back yard about 100yds and through the back property fence before resting to a stop. He doesn’t remember any of it. His GMC Sierra took it very well with all airbags deploying and the driver suffered no injuries from the accident. He hit the house at an estimated 60mph and traveled 150yds further.”
Buddy ran into this glass door once, and he wouldn’t come through without me closing the door and opening it in front of him for a good week. This is one of the times I decided to record it, and boy am I glad I did!
