Beer and Shot in One...!

Not only are these glasses a for-sure conversation starter, they also cut your dishwashing in half...!
Although a clever idea, it kinda makes drinking a chaser beer 'right' after the shot a little problematic since they are attached. The Shot in the Pint drinking glasses will set you back $20 for a pair and will make a perfect stocking stuffer...

Below are a few photos, a video walk-through and the floorplan of an apartment in the UK that sold for $221 million back in 2007, that's aproximately $9,500 a square foot...! The anonymous Ukranian paid for the penthouse in cash through an offshore trust... must be nice, huh?
