4. Car Lights
Car lights let you turn your car into a moving disco on wheels. They have 16 million color options but I’m not sure how they do that, because my Crayola box only had 64 colors in it. The controls are easy to change the colors or you can sync it with your music so the colors dance to the music.

5. Drunk Stoned or Stupid Game
This hilarious game is played with 4+ people and not for the easily offended. It comes with cards that everyone votes who the card resembles the most.

By the way, all of these things are me.

Sometimes, beer just isn’t cold enough. Drop beer chiller sticks in the freezer or a bucket of ice. Once they are cold, pop them into your beer and screw on tightly, and then instantly, your beer is ice cold. They are great for BBQs and tailgate parties or for just sitting out by the pool.
