How To: Ruin Somebody's Instagram Food Photos

August 23, 2016

ruining-instagram-food-photo.jpg

This is a very short video of a guy demonstrating how to ruin somebody else's Instagram food photo. It looks like it worked like a charm. Honestly, I have never taken a photo of my food in my life. Even things I've cooked myself and were proud of. As a matter of fact, there is zero photographic documentation of anything I've ever eaten except one picture each of the cakes my mom made for my fourth and fifth birthday parties (heavy machinery and dinosaur themed, respectively). Also, even if you do like taking Instagram pictures of your food to brag to your friends, that spaghetti does not look like bragging. That looks like a dead pigeon. That looks like $8 pasta at a sports bar. That caption better have read 'Boyfriend was too cheap to take me somewhere nice #verylimitedbreadsticks #hollaolivegarden.'

Video Tour Of $1.5-Million Star Trek Home Theater

August 23, 2016

star-trek-home-theater.jpg

This is a video tour of Marc and Jennifer Bell's Star Trek themed home theater and bar area. It took four years and $1.5-million to complete. The actual theater is modeled after the USS Enterprise's bridge from The Next Generation, the doors open like real turbolift doors, 8 of the 11 chairs in the theater recline into beds, and he has an estimated $1-million of Star Trek memorabilia including original models and costumes and Spock's ear prosthetics (previously: these two other Star Trek home theater builds). No word if Jennifer shares Marc's love of everything Star Trek, but I'd be certainly be curious to hear what she has to say about it.

My God: Massive Dungeons And Dragons Diorama Play Table

August 23, 2016

dnd-diorama-1.jpg

This is the absolutely massive Dungeons & Dragons tabletop diorama built by Ryan Devoto with the assistance of Michael Tuskus of Terranscapes for the water section. The setup includes an ocean seaport, village and farmland, forests, multiple castles, a large ruins maze and stunning details throughout. It makes the square grid D&D map I drew on the back of a roll of wrapping paper look like complete shit. Could you imagine having a friend with a gaming diorama like this in their house? I'd ask if they'd adopt me. Or at least pay for my dog food. She only likes the fancy brand that's mostly real meat chunks. Come on, you're rich and seem cool. Smell my breath. We shared lunch.

You Never Stood A Chance: Shopping Cart Crash Test At 73MPH

August 23, 2016

shopping-cart-crash-test.jpg

This is a video from Switzerland's Dynamic Test Center of a shopping cart being crashed into a wall at a record 117.8km/h (~73.2MPH). For reference, if you're ever pushing a shopping cart at 73MPH you better be The Flash or on Supermarket Sweep or I fear something has gone horribly, horribly wrong. I rode a shopping cart down a hill once and I probably only got up to 20MPH and I was almost certain I was going to die. This thing, man....all the food just disintegrates. Also, how did they get a cart that's even capable of going 73MPH when I always get one with a shitty wheel that looks like somebody has been living out of it for the past month. What are these liquids I'm not hungry anymore. Fast food is the best food anyways.

Pikachu, I Chews You!: Australian Burger Restaurant Builds Pokemon Burgers

August 23, 2016

pokemon-burgers-1.jpg

Because the first thing any person thinks of when they see a Pokemon is "But what does it taste like," Australian burger restaurant Down N' Out (not to be confused with In-N-Out, which is a euphemism for boning) developed these three limited edition Pokemon burgers. They come in Pikachu, Bulbasaur and Charmander varieties, each with it's own unique ingredients. I'm kinda feeling the Bulbasaur, it looks less intimidating than the other two and I'm trying to watch my figure. Unfortunately, that figure is an 8. If I add one more ball I'll be a snowman.

Keep going for a closeup of each and try to guess what's on them. I think I spotted some Doritos in Charmander.

Woopsie: 19-Foot Tall Domino Tower Crumbles To The Ground

August 23, 2016

domino-tower-collapse.jpg

This is a video of a 19-foot, 3,242-piece domino tower crumbling to the ground. The tower took seven hours of non-stop building to construct and was allegedly only 10 layers away from being the second tallest free-standing domino tower in the world. It's weird to think that in just seven hours you can build the almost second tallest domino tower in the world. I thought it would have taken much longer than that. We could spend this weekend building a domino tower and claim the record for ourselves. Or -- OR -- dive into the tower like a pile of raked leaves every time it gets over four feet tall. Honestly, I'm probably going to do that anyways.

Awesome Wizard Themed Gaming Dice Set

August 23, 2016

wizard-dice-1.jpg

This is the already funded Kickstarter for a Wizard Set of gaming dice designed by PolyHero Dice. $15 gets a full seven-piece set including a 4-sided bolt, 6-sided fireball, 8-sided scroll, 10-sided potion, 10-sided percentile potion, 12-sided wand and 20-sided orb in the available color of your choice. Plus if you order off their Kickstarter page they'll throw in a 2-sided spell book die. They will NOT throw in a sorceress themed nudie magazine though which sucks because the guy at the magazine story knows I'm not old enough to buy them even though I wear an adult size wizard hat and can almost grow a scrubby beard.

Keep going for a bunch more shots of available colorways and potentially available colorways.

I'm Frying Out Here: KFC Chicken Scented Sunscreen

August 23, 2016

kfc-suntan-lotion.jpg

Because the world is full of terrible ideas, this is KFC's Extra Crispy Sunscreen. The lotion is a limited edition SPF30 sunscreen that smells like fried chicken. Obviously, I'm going to drink it even though they say not to because you can't make things that smell so good and not expect people to eat them, it's not fair. I can't even tell you how many candles and air fresheners I've tried. Honestly though, I don't want to smell like fried chicken. What if I go to the beach and seagulls try to carry me away? I saw them work together to lift a whole cooler once for a couple half-eaten sandwiches and Capri-Sun pouches. And then there's the sharks. If sharks can detect smells in the water in concentrations as low as one part per ten billion, imagine when they catch a whiff of 210 pounds of fried chicken trying to bodysurf.
