    PROTIP: Adjust according based on the number of over-eaters in your family. This is a handy poultry cooking chart created by the folks at Personal Creations detailing how much bird to buy for how many people, and how long to cook it. It's for people who might be new to hostin... / Continue →

    Well, Halloween is over, so you all know what that means. "CHRISTMAS FULL STEAM AHEAD." Yep. A couple of my neighbors put their decorations up yesterday. I am going to go over there sometime this week and ring the doorbell and sing carols. And by carols I mean Incubus song... / Continue →

    Every year the folks at Creative Lighting Displays produce a ridiculously elaborate Halloween house display. This is a video of this year's, synchronized to the Ghostbusters theme song. How many lights are there? F***ING TONS, THAT'S HOW MANY. So many you can see the house ... / Continue →

    This is Los Angeles artist Christine McConnell standing in front of her parent's house, which she decorated to look like a giant monster for Halloween. Cool idea. I am going to transform my entire apartment building into a haunted sanitarium for Halloween. It's going to be s... / Continue →

    This is the 10-foot long inflatable Jabba the Hutt lawn decoration available from ThinkGeek ($170, includes lights and inflating fan). He measures six feet tall and will almost certainly get his picture taken being humped by teenage trick-or-treaters. Also, why does he look s... / Continue →

    If you can't tell how to do it from the picture alone, I'm not sure there's much hope for you. But I will provide some words anyways because I know not everyone is a visual learner. Take a slice from five different kinds of sausage (in this case hotdog, bratwurst, Italian sau... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber bra1Nphuk (I see what you did there) launching an overturned wheelbarrow almost fifty feet with the help of a Cobra 6 firecracker, which packs 48.5-grams of explosive powder (versus 2-3 grams for an M-80). The landing is most spectacular. If I were... / Continue →

    This is a two-piece bathing suit made to look like Ariel's from The Little Mermaid (available as separate tops and bottoms from Hot Topic for $20 apiece -- just don't mention ThinkGeek). Except Ariel didn't wear a bikini bottom, that was just her tail. Personally, I am a big ... / Continue →

    This is the Jurassic Park 'clever girl' graduation cap made by some recent graduate. It's not the first time I've seen it done, but I do respect it every time. You know, I didn't go to either one of my undergraduate or master's degree graduation ceremonies. You know why? "Y... / Continue →

    Hold it like you mean business! This is the BBQ Machete Spatula. It costs around $19, looks like a machete, but with the functionality of a spatula. Plus there's a bottle opener. It also comes with a bandana so you don't drip sweat on the meat you're grilling. People usual... / Continue →

    Note: Obviously, it's not called a tauntaun snowman, it's a snowtauntaun. This is the snowtauntaun made by Redditor Xnipek's friend. That is definitely one tauntaun I wouldn't want to slice open and try sleeping inside of. Honestly, I don't know if I could do that to any ta... / Continue →

    This is a video of the folks at FullMag uncorking a bottle of champagne by blasting the cork with a .50-caliber sniper rifle. Sadly, they aim too low and shatter a couple bottles before finally getting it right on the third try. Impressive feat, but you do know you can open t... / Continue →

    This is the Heisenberg paper snowflake design created by artist Lloyd Kinsley. There's a link to a downloadable PDF of the design at Lloyd's Behance page HERE. Obviously, hanging a couple near your stocking will let Santa know what you REALLY want for Christmas. "Meth?" God... / Continue →

    Wow, two gingerbread posts in a row, it must be the holidays or something! (Is it the holidays?) This is the gingerbread USS Enterprise built and on display at the Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa, California. They did a good job. But you know what my least favorite thing ab... / Continue →

    This is the gingerbread Barad-dûr with light-up Eye of Sauron built by two Finnish engineering and computer science students. It took over 13.5-pounds of gingerbread to complete, but only one really high friend to eat half of when they had their backs turned. Keep going for a... / Continue →

    This is an already funded Kickstarter campaign for two (one raw, one painted) Krampus themed beer steins. $48 gets you the raw style when they ship next May, and $60 the painted version. I'm having a hard time deciding which one I want, which is why I just did Eeny, Meeny, Mi... / Continue →

    This is a video of music teacher (hence the giant instruments) Tom BetGeorge's Christmas lights display. Tom says he has about 12,500 channels running 100,000 lights, and this year they're all synced to Star Wars songs (there's even a lightsaber battle). I wonder how many peo... / Continue →

    This is a sampling of the dinosaur Menorahs sold by Etsy shop The Vanilla Studio. They're made from spraypainted plastic dinosaur toys, some putty, and candle holders. They cost $85 apiece though, making it far more economical to create your own. I just made one by taping a ... / Continue →

    This is the $20 Mitten Flask. It's a pair of mittens with a 3-ounce (5-ounces too small) flexible flask hidden inside the palm of the left-hand mitten, with a bite-valve at the thumb. That sucks because 1. I'm left-handed and would prefer the flask be in the right mitten, whi... / Continue →
