Shaken not spilled

Have you ever wondered what the people on the movie you are watching are drinking? Probably not because it just doesn’t matter. However, apparently the folks at Pop Chart Lab did wonder and they created a  poster that includes the best known drinks, and a lot from movies I’ve never bothered to watch. Larger version …

Bacon press, as if it weren’t impressive enough.

We’ve all seen it happen, you throw a couple rashers of bacon in the pan to try and make your day a little more bearable and only to see then twist and curl up on themselves like some sort of possessed trout. As cool as the rings of bacon you end up with may be …

Glowing food = bad, nanoparticles = good.

Researchers at the University of Missouri are developing nanoparticles that can detect toxins and poisons in food. They do it by attaching themselves to the toxin and holding on. The real trick is that the particles are painted with UV reactive stuff (technical term) so when the researchers shine a black light on the tainted …

Happy Meal, With A Fountain Of Youth Please

A man who shall remain unnamed (David Whipple) has a burger he bought from McDonald’s that looks exactly the same as the day he bought it. I’m gonna find whatever is perserving this thing, splice it into my genes, and then live forever! The downside is that I will smell like McDonalds when I get …

Cutting calories in the hardest way.

Because artists are crazy, and I loves me some crazy, here’s “Cut Food” by photographer/genius Beth Galton. Somehow, probably magic and a katana, she has created a series of photos of food cut in half. Some of them are pretty good, the rest have vegetables and no sane person wants any of that. See, artists=crazy. …

I always suspected it was cat.

Tange & Nakimushi Peanuts (crazy cat people) just came out with a photo series and confusing video titled Sushi Cats. I always suspected the meat on my sushi wasn’t whatever sea creature it was being attributed to, now I’m sure. I think I won’t be eating sushi at hole-in-the-wall buffets any more, I wanna see …

Mmmmmm…..Cameltoes. Not What You Think.

(Just make this image opposite in your mind and you’ll have a pretty good visual of what is going on) Turns out that Mali will give you a camel as a present for good will. What doesn’t seem to be acceptable is when Mali citizens eat said camel to stay alive. Camels are ugly anyway, …

Great places I can’t afford.

In news that makes me want to cry, the Diners Club released their list of the top 50 restaurants in the World today. Not one of which will I ever go to even when I am a billionaire and rule my own continent. I’m doing it out of spite for not putting my favorite place …

That would make a sweet barbecue.

In more grilling news, here’s this Steampunk AT-AT made by Flickrer Broken Journalist for his woman. He actually calls it, “Captain Bayley’s Infernal Mechano-Preambulator.”  No I’m not sure who Captain Bailey is, why it can’t just be called “Steampunk AT-AT,” or why it has a unicorn horn. Never the less this thing is pretty sweet. It …

Grillin’ like a villain

I’m sorry, I know that was awful. Etsy seller Haute Mess Threads came up with these unique aprons with the likeness of different villains from various tv shows and movies. I like the idea, especially because of my tendency to grill shirtless I should wear more aprons. The only problem I foresee is all the …
