204a_double_heat_changing_skull_mug

This Double Heat Changing Skull Mug changes quite a bit once you pour in some hot or warm water. If you add in warm water, the skull changes to red, and if you add in something hot, it changes to white. It’s kinda like the skin is melting off the bone.

laser etched pumpkin pie

Pumpkin pies don’t get decorated often enough, and when they do, it’s usually with leaves cut out of pie dough. The Quirky YouTube channel went a different route and put the Mayflower onto their Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, and they used a laser-cutting machine to burn the image onto the pie’s surface. It’s silly, but nifty.

Watch the laser cutter go to work in the video after the break.

deadpool latte art

The best part of waking up is a little mercenary in your coffee cup. Twitter user Sugi shared a photo of this Deadpool latte art, and I can’t get over how much detail there is. He looks like he would tear you up in from the inside if you tried to drink him.

deep fried thanksgiving dinner

It’s time to deal with Thanksgiving leftovers. While heating up your turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce in the microwave is a fine option, you can get more creative. Amy of Oh Bite It decided to see what the leftovers would be like stuffed into some dough and deep fried.

She put together a bowl of Thanksgiving dinner (this is not for those of you who don’t like different kinds of food to be mixed), stuffed them into circles of crescent dough, and fried them in hot oil. I’m intrigued. Heck, it could improve the taste of bland food.

Get the complete recipe at Oh Bite It.

baked potato taun taun 1

Have you ever looked at a baked potato and thought it would make a great tauntaun? Me either, but one enterprising individual did and is trying to fund “Baked Potauntauns” on Indiegogo. The idea is that you stick a tauntaun headpiece and two haunches onto a baked potato, fill the potato with Luke Skywalker made from butter (the mold is provided), and then cut it open with a lightsaber knife. Because, why not?
