KangaROOS are an American brand of sneaker originally produced from 1979 through the 1980s, with a later revival that continues in present. They were notable for having a small zippered pocket on the side of the shoe, large enough for a small amount of loose change, keys, etc. He designed the sneakers for his own personal use as a place to store his keys and money, then marketed them effectively. His marketing design was successful, leading to sales in excess of 700,000 pairs a month by the early 1980s. By the end of the 1980s, the popularity of the sneakers was on the decline, executives departed the company and KangaROOS were quietly withdrawn from the market. However, nostalgia, combined with an appreciation both of the shoe's athletic design and its ubiquitous pocket, led to a reappearance of the shoe in the late 1990s. Today, KangaROOS are still sold in over sixty countries worldwide.

Okay, two Streetview challenges, the first is a softball. Wooden methods for storing wine or spirits range from smaller barrels to huge casks; the tastes yielded by French and American species of oak are slightly different, with French oak being subtler, while American oak gives stronger aromas. Show me where this wine was fermented American oak. And secondly, and a little more difficult, show me where I can park my motorcycle.
West Marine was founded in 1968 by Randy Repass in Sunnyvale, California with the name West Coast Ropes, selling nylon rope from his garage. The first retail West Coast Ropes store opened in 1975 in Palo Alto, California. With the acquisition of assets from West Products in 1977, the company changed its name to West Marine Products.

West Marine currently provides over 75,000 products online, in stores, and via mail-order catalog.
One of the biggest metrics used to compare games to each other is map size. This video, uploaded by YouTube user MarcoStyle, compares the size of The Division‘s map to Fallout 4 and Grand Theft Auto V, which are both incredibly large maps. All three maps are based on real-life cities -- Fallout 4 is an immaculate replica of Boston, GTA V mimics elements of Los Angeles, and The Division is meant to take place in Midtown Manhattan.
