      CARD STACKING W/ SCOTT DYER

      Last week we decided to have a little fun with our newly released collection of playing cards with D&D. Naturally, everyone at some point in their lives has been bored enough to build a house of cards. If you could get your cards to stand strong long enough to three stories tall you pretty much ruled.

      Two stories, though essentially meek by most standards, might still have taken you an hour without cheating, so you deserve some praise.  After announcing the contest, we waited with baited breath to see all the entries come flowing in. This was one of those contests that had a pretty level playing field for anyone to enter. We couldn't have been more wrong.  Meet the second person who entered the HMNIM contest and world class card stacker Scott Dyer.

      Scott has been stacking for as long as he can remember. Not everyone can make that statement. They still do the things they love from childhood today, with the same enjoyment and passion. On Scott's website, he talks about the trials and tribulations that come with a lifetime of "stack'n" (as they refer to it on the streets), how he'd come close to stopping and what would pull him back in, like heroin. Or maybe nothing at all like heroin, but similar...you get what we're saying...

      Where does one go with such a skill like Scott's? You go for the world record. The record is currently held by Scott's nemesis, Bryan Berg, who in 1992 built the tallest card tower of 75 stories or for those of you who can't do "card math" that's 25' 9.438". Scott hopes to obliterate that meager accomplishment with a 40+ foot behemoth. Good luck to you Scott, maybe try and use one of our playing cards in your tower so we can be a small part of your dream.

       

      ARE YOU A WINNER?

      We recently had a contest with our HMNIM Thermos. All you had to do is prove in picture form, why you deserved an autographed Thermos from Mark Hoppus. Easy enough as contests go, probably why we had so many entries. And probably why we had so many good entries. But, in the end there could only be one...well, maybe four winners. And here they are.

      Elisa Leone - Italy

      Hunter Jones - Canada

      Rich Magson - United Kingdom

       

       

      1st ANNUAL PUMPKIN CARVING CONTEST

      You know darn well that you were going to carve a pumpkin anyhow, but now you have a better reason than Halloween. $100 dollars worth of HMNIM. Now that you are properly incentivized what are you going to carve? Standard triangle face with square teeth? Witch on a broom? The world is your oyster as they say. Be creative, be weird, be original and that's how you will win. 

      You can submit entries to the HMNIM facebook page, or just tag your photo on Instagram with #HMNIM
