    Because I'm just itching to put on my next twenty pounds, this is the Napoli Crispy Pizza Fried Chicken available from KFC Hong Kong. Apparently it has a pizza flavored breading, including mozzarella and cheddar cheeses. It looks like maybe some kind of marinara too? Would I... / Continue →

    These are the $40 velvet Chewbacca leggings available from ThinkGeek (and possibly elsewhere but I'm not your personal shopper unless you let me ride in the cart in which case you've got yourself a deal but please don't push me too fast). The velvet gives them a little bit of ... / Continue →

    This is the new Volkswagen California campervan that somebody vinyl wrapped to look like a rusty piece of shit. It reminds me of an old Chevy Astro. Would you steal it? Of course you wouldn't, you're not a car thief. I mean, you're not a car thief, are you? Because if you ... / Continue →

    This is the $18 Crispy Corner Brownie Pan. It's supposed to bake brownies with maximum crispy edges. Is that actually the maximum amount of crispy edges? I have no clue, I failed geometry both times I tried to take it. Why not just use a cupcake pan? Are crispy edges reall... / Continue →

    This is a series of cross-stitch style tattoos inked by Turkish tattoo artist Eva Krbdk. I'd get one, but I'm afraid of commitment so I just hot-superglued (a method I developed myself) one of my grandma's existing cross-stitches to my arm. In hindsight I probably should have... / Continue →

    This is a BMW X6 with heat-sensitive paint that reveals The Hulk when doused with hot water (previously: this car treated with the same style of paint). Pretty cool, right? Unfortunately, cars usually don't get doused with hot water that often. I guess pee would work too. H... / Continue →

    Because Japan, the Yunessan Spa House in Hakone is now offering ramen noodle baths to help bathers achieve that young, supple skin everyone desires. And obviously it's working, because a couple of the men in there look like they're six years old. Wait -- is that one on the ri... / Continue →

    This is the wedding cake created by Cupcakes by SJ for a cousin's special day. My cousins' most special day? The day I was born and came into their lives. Granted I'm not a huge fan of fondant (or any size fan really), but I admire the creativity that went into the cake. *p... / Continue →

    This is the Viking ship fire pit available from Etsy seller ImagineMetalArt. It costs $400, which is a little bit (technically a lot of bit) out of my fire pit budget at the moment. The ship measures approximately 40-inches long and 16-inches wide, so basically imagine my pen... / Continue →

    This is a first look at the official $60 Big Bang Theory LEGO set due out later this year that people apparently wanted. I previously speculated it wouldn't get made, but I was wrong. For the record, that is the second time I've ever been wrong and I'm strong enough to admit ... / Continue →
