When it comes to charging devices in my house, the challenge is to find outlet space and remember where the heck the cable is. Then there’s the added joy of trying to charge multiple devices.

Combine those realities with a love of cute gadgets and it’s pretty much a given that I’ll like the Foaster.

Foaster lets you charge as many as four devices at once (pressing down on the lever reveals two ports that can accommodate larger devices) and it uses your device cables, so you know you have the right connector.

“Congratulations, son, you’re about to be famous.”

While the officer is addressing those words to the perp, I think it’s also true for Lt. Higgins himself. His passion and determination to get whoever it was that robbed Stelly’s Restaurant is palpable. Seriously, this guy is a star:

“The Sheriff likes Stelly’s restaurant. And so do I….We’re going to identify you, arrest you, and put you in a small cell. After that, I’m going to have a cheeseburger here, with fries and a coke…Meanwhile, your next meal with be served through a small hole in a cell door.”

Trust me on this. Watch it after the break.

Everyone knows that the only thing better than sushi is sushi that looks like a tiger. With that in mind, this uramaki sushi roll is filled with spicy salmon tartare and topped with a special mango agar gel.

If you’d like to try this yourself, Chef Davy Devaux made a video tutorial for you to follow. Having watched it, I can tell you that I’d never be able to make this, but I’d be perfectly happy to eat it!

There’s no doubt that seaweed is good for you. It’s packed with vitamins and nutrients and it’s definitely a key ingredient in Asian cooking. But, let’s be honest, a lot of us here in the States don’t eat seaweed because it tastes, well, like seaweed.

Well, get ready to start loving seaweed.

A researcher at Oregon State University by the name of Chris Langdon started growing a special strain of Dulse seaweed as a super-food for Abalone and ended up creating a seaweed that tastes like bacon. He notes:

“In Europe, they add [dulse] powder to smoothies, or add flakes onto food,” Langdon said. “There hasn’t been a lot of interest in using it in a fresh form. But this stuff is pretty amazing. When you fry it, which I have done, it tastes like bacon, not seaweed. And it’s a pretty strong bacon flavor.”

Langdon has patented the strain and teamed up with OSU MBA students to market the product. We’re cautiously optimistic.

elsa cake

You may have seen this side by side picture of an Elsa cake going around, but it turns out there’s more to the story than people thought. While McGreevy Cakes is listed on the original picture, McGreevy didn’t make the cake on the right. They offer tips and tutorials on cake design. The Elsa cake that came out…different appears to have been made as part of Icing Smiles, “a nonprofit organization that provides custom celebration cakes and other treats to families impacted by the critical illness of a child”.

So, this cake was made out of kindness—for no profit. The Internet probably feels so bad right now.

The baker who made the original design even weighed in to remind people that, while the cake wasn’t perfect, someone worked hard to make it.

And this is the little girl that got the cake. Looks like she’s all smiles.
