Stickman, what makes you so reckless? Jumping off of perfectly safe buildings and bridges seems so ... dangerous. Lucky for you that you're an Android app and not a real Stickman! But you are real fun. Stickman Base Jumper Free is a freeware base jumping game from Djinnworks E.U. As you may know, base jumping is actually BASE jumping because it involves supposedly rational people jumping off of four types of structure: Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges), and Earth (cliffs and natural formations). Did we mention the parachute? You get to use a parachute. While that's not quite as … Read more

We've already shown you how to jump-start your car with standard jumper cables, but if you don't trust yourself to remember all six steps in our guide, Michelin may be able to help with its new Smart Jumper cables. This set of jumpers features inline electronics that take most--but not all--of the guesswork and danger out of jump-starting a car.

The first is that where standard jumpers have red and black clamps on each end, marking the positive and negative connections, all four of the Smart Jumper's connections are the same electric blue. So, how do you know what's positive and what's negative? As it turns out, it doesn't matter.… Read more

I was given my first set of jumper cables at the same time I received my first car. Before setting me loose on the world, my father gave me a very serious speech about the dangers of improperly jump-starting a vehicle. I was warned of potential electrocution, sparks igniting gasoline fires, and--most seriously--acid spewing battery explosions if the cables weren't connected in just the right way and in just the right order. Even armed with this sacred knowledge, I still throw sparks every time I jump-start a car, just for kicks. Sorry, dad.
However, most drivers didn't get … Read more

This simple game is based on a board game in which you jump over marbles to remove them from the board. Now on the iPhone, you can challenge yourself wherever you are to get as many marbles off the board that you can.
