Earlier this month, we wrote about a very dedicated Fallout player named Seth who had the genius idea to send 2,240 bottle caps to Bethesda as payment to pre-order Fallout 4. In a letter to the game developer he explained that he’s collected the caps in the seven years since Fallout 3 and, while he’s only seen the game available for “pre-war dollars”, he figured this should cover the cost (bottle caps serve as currency in the game).
Well, it worked. Seth got a reply from Bethesda community manager Matt Grandstaff, who said that since he was the first person to do this, they would send a copy of the game this November. He also joked that he’d be running the caps over to deposit them at the People’s Bank of Point Lookout.
So it looks like you’ll have to come up with another brilliant scheme (with marketing potential) to get free games as this one has already been taken.

I hate to use the tired old line, but I think we’ve been eating Starbursts all wrong. It turns out we should have been roasting them all along. You can even make s’mores with Starbursts!

Vietnamese freelance artist Nguyen Quang Huy is a big fan of superheroes. What makes his work so unique is his habit of using everyday objects as part of his drawings. From matchboxes to chili peppers, to onions, he sees heroes everywhere.

As you can guess by her name, Annabel Lecter of Conjurer’s Kitchen is a major Hannibal fan. In honor of the show, specifically Abel Gideon’s (albeit unwilling) contribution to Hannibal’s meal, Annabel has recreated Gideon’s arm and the snails that happily feed on it in cake form.
Bless her deviant, gourmet heart.

I want a Sailor Moon birthday cake so bad! Only it’s not my birthday…and I don’t live in Japan. However, if you are a Sailor Moon fan that’s lucky enough to be in Japan, know that these intricately detailed cakes will be available at convenience stores and anime/novelty shops starting September 21st.
They’re only 600 yen (approx. $4.80 USD) and they come with a cake plate and cute little chocolate toppers.
The cakes include:
Sailor Moon Fresh Strawberry Cake, Tuxedo Mask Chocolat Framboise, Sailor Mercury Quivering Jelly Cake, Sailor Mars Red Berry Tart, Sailor Jupiter Matcha Square Cake, Sailor Venus Orange Mousse, Sailor Chibi Moon Luna P Dome Cake (made with blueberry cream), and Sailor Pluto Sachertorte (chocolate cake with apricot jam filling).
You know you want one.

In many instances, cooking requires skill with a blade, so it makes perfect sense to me that this Princess Bride cutting board features two of the most skilled blades in the world.
I imagine someone impressively chopping things in the kitchen and then pausing dramatically to say “I am not left handed” before changing hands.

Do I really need to tell you why I love this Star Wars Stormtrooper Helmet can hugger? How often do I get to say things like “Let a Buckethead hold your beer”?
A warning to the guys: be careful when you use it because I have no idea if bad aim is a side effect. You know, because beer makes you pee.
