truck pack

Gordon Murray designs world’s first flat-pack vehicle to send aid to remote areas

A two-wheel drive off-road van made from plywood, the Ox is aimed at remote areas of the world like Africa, where transporting food, equipment and other supplies over rough terrain is difficult.

The body parts, seats and windscreen are all flat and fit into the same box, and Murray says that it’s simple enough that a team of three non-experts can fully assemble an Ox in less than 12 hours.

DFTBA is moving warehouses, again… on to bigger and better things! But before we pack the truck up again, we need to get rid of the thousands upon thousands of shirts we have sitting around the warehouse (because no one wants to move all those shirts again, and that means a great deal for you guys).

So, until everything is sold out, all Gildan fabric shirts (the vast majority of our shirts) are on sale for $10 each! That’s, like, half price for most of these.

We hope to sell every shirt we have in stock on Gildan fabric before we move in two weeks. So head over to dftba.com now and pick up some of the shirts you’ve been wanting while they’re only $10. It is very unlikely we will ever run a sale like this again, as this is our first site-wide sale of this kind in the five years we’ve been operating.

This is a pretty big deal.

*Please note this sale does not include American Apparel shirts from Charles Trippy, the HPA, or Rhett & Link. This sale is limited to Gildan fabric shirts, which represent the majority of the shirts carried by DFTBA.

  • there isnt a day that goes past that you dont pass by a person in a navy uniform. no one ever seems questions why the uniforms are a century out of date.
  • old houses line the streets in various states of disuse. sometimes, out of the corner of your eye, you see women dressed in blood stained white aprons standing in the windows. when you turn your head, theres nothing.
  • you are in the wal-mart parking lot, packing away bags, when teenage boys streak past in their rusty pick-up, the red, white, and blue of the confederate flag waving frantically in the wind. you notice the rifles in their truck and pack faster.
  • you can hardly drive a mile without passing by a church. there is always a cheerfully bright 7-11 in between them, with blank faced and blank eyed customers filling their cars or sipping on slurpees.
  • at night, when you are trying to sleep, you hear the sound of a train on tracks. you once looked up how far the sound of a train is supposed to travel and find it to be 3 miles. you live 10 away from the closest set of tracks.
  • in the summer, there are people on the roadside selling homegrown fruits and vegetables out of the backs of their trucks. you notice their dark, hungry looks and drive faster.
  • you go to the boardwalk, once and only once. it had been a good until you noticed that not every one who went into the water came back out. you ask a girl in bright clothes what the floating things are. she smiles and says “oh, those are just weeds. nothing to worry about.” you leave immediately and never come back.
  • day after day, jets fly overhead. they shake everything; your house, the windows, your very bones. you spend a whole, cloudless day watching for it, only for it to never appear. though its not there, the hum rattles your bones enough for one to fracture. you no longer question it.

APPARENTLY THEY DON’T TEACH ABOUT OKLAHOMA BOMBING IN SCHOOLS   Timothy McVeigh’s anti-government resistance is today the mainstream ideology in Republican party

On April 19, 1995, a pair of former U.S. Army soldiers parked a rented Ryder truck packed with explosives outside a federal building in Oklahoma City. The blast killed 168 people and injured more than 500 others, and the attack is the worst homegrown terror attack on American soil.
The bombing came only two years after the first attack on the World Trade Center.
Former U.S. soldier Timothy McVeigh was convicted on 11 counts of murder, conspiracy and using a weapon of mass destruction in the blast, and was later executed. The other ex-soldier, Terry Nichols, was convicted on similar charges and sentenced to life without parole, because the jury deadlocked on the death penalty. The two were motivated by contempt for government, the hatred sharpened by the 1993 federal raid on the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas
