It’s common knowledge that Spider-man does whatever a spider can, and that makes him pretty awesome in my book. So, in honor of Spidey, I’m going to make a Jell-O dessert that looks like his face. That isn’t weird, right? Nope. Totally cool. If you’d like to make a dessert that looks like Spidey, then you can use this 10-inch plastic mold to make all sorts of things. You can pre-order now for shipment in February 2015.

1eef_ghost_pepper_cheddar_popcorn

If you fear spicy foods, then this bag of Ghost Pepper Cheddar Popcorn is most definitely not for you. Just FYI, the Ghost Pepper (Bhut Jolokia) is one of the hottest peppers in the world. It’s overall heat rating is around 850,000-1,400,000 SHU, and just for some proper context, a jalapeño pepper has a heat rating of round 3500 SHU. So yeah, this cheesy-but-spicy popcorn is only for folks with tastebuds that can handle extreme, borderline-insane spiciness.

2-Player Gaming Mug Set

1d7e_2-player_gaming_mug_set

So, with these mugs you can be Player 1, and your significant other can be Player 2. Player 1 takes coffee in the morning, and Player 2 likes tea and has to do the dishes after breakfast (because Player 2 always forgets to the dishes. Yes, Player 1 is not bitter, but Player 1 is feeling a little annoyed about how forgetful player 2 is. Please do the dishes, Player 2!).

These old school NES-style mugs are also microwave and dishwasher safe too. Enjoy!

Can you believe that it’s the 30th anniversary of the Ghostbusters film? I mean, yikes, I’m starting to feel a little old now. Well, there’s no better way to assuage my crushing sadness about the inevitable arrival of my untimely demise than with lots and lots of donuts. Speaking of which, Krispy Kreme recently announced that they will sell two new marshmallow Kreme-filled Ghostbusters donuts in honor of the film’s anniversary. Krispy Kreme’s Ghostbusters and Stay Puft Marshmallow donuts will be available at participating Krispy Kreme US locations starting on September 29th, 2014 (while supplies last, of course).

The Ghostbusters donut will feature a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell that’s topped with white icing, a green “splat” inspired by Slimer’s green slime, and a Ghostbusters logo sugar piece. The Stay Puft version will feature a marshmallow Kreme-filled shell with white icing, a decorative Stay Puft Marshmallow Man and a sugar piece hat. You can also pre-order an advanced order of 5 dozen or more donuts at your closest participating location.

257_logo

It might be a little hard to believe, but Pac-Man is getting his own restaurant. We don’t know much about the restaurant, which is going to be called Level 257, other than the following description: “Introducing a unique dining, entertainment & social experience inspired by PAC-MAN.

The restaurant is slated to open next year, and it will be located in the suburb of Schaumburg, just outside of Chicago. It will feature 40,000 square feet of space with a 300-seat suite, as well as cocktail lounges and a 16-lane bowling alley. Hopefully, they will have some old-school Pac-Man arcade games for diners to play too.

beer-carrying-record

Leave it to a German to know how to handle a precarious stack of beer mugs. German waiter Oliver Struempfel carried 27 one-liter mugs over an astounding 40-meters of beer-drenched barroom flooring to claim the world record for beer carrying. Yes, that’s apparently a thing. Well, congratulations, Oliver. Prost!

dark side cookies shirt

Darth Vader is just a big ol’ softy at heart. When he’s done slaying Jedi children and blowing up unsuspecting planets with moon-like space stations, he loves to bake chocolate chip cookies. Celebrate the kinder side of Darth Vader with this “You Can’t Resist The Force Of The Cookies” t-shirt, which is 100 percent cotton. Just remember, Darth Vader hates oatmeal cookies, so don’t bake those. If you do, he might think you’re part of the Rebel Alliance and a traitor, and he’ll have you taken away. Trust me, you don’t want that.

Sure, you could drink from a regular, ol’ boring mug. But, if you’re super duper cool, you could drink your beverages from this Bigfoot Tiki mug. As you can see, this particular Bigfoot is rather cheerful-looking, so there’s only good vibes here. Or if you live in a cold climate, you could go with the Yeti mug (which you can check out after the break).

pizza-fold-hold1 copy

So, why does a big slice of pizza tend to droop unless you fold it into a curve? Well, there’s some math involved in all this pizza folding: the basic concept here deals with the 19th century principle of Gaussian curvature.

Wired’s Aatish Bhatia used the pizza question as a nice starting point to explain this unique aspect of geometry, and once you understand this principle, you’ll never look at pizza the same way again.

Well, it’ll still look delicious of course, but you get my point.

Check out what Aatish had to say after the break…
