This ancient, six-ounce Deku Flask features the legendary Kokiri symbol, which carries a powerful spell that will keep you safe from both bodily injury and a pointy-stabby death while journeying throughout Hyrule… but it also does a wonderful job of keeping your alcohol safe too!

Space is hostile, cold, and entirely unforgiving. If you’re a marshmallow Peep, it’s one of the worst places you can be. (Well, save for a microwave oven, but that’s beside the point).

Phil Plait had a little science-y fun at the Texas A&M’s Physics and Engineering Festival when he replicated the results of what would happen to a Peep that had unfortunately fallen victim to the vacuum of space.

R2-D2 is one very advanced droid: he can navigate an X-wing, patch into the Death Star’s super computer and, surprisingly, break down into a bunch of nifty measuring cups.

There are four measuring cups and four measuring spoons in all. Just remember, this officially licensed Lucasfilm product is highly sought after by chefs of the Empire, so act fast, and don’t tell those stormtroopers nothin’.

Check out some more pics of the R2-D2 measuring cup set after the break…

Not to gross you out or anything, but Buzzfeed recently created a video that featured 14 anonymous confessions (posted via Whisper) from fast food employees about how gnarly the industry is. Honestly, some of them are pretty unsettling, so just make sure you’re not munching on some McDonald’s fries while you’re watching this one.

Watch the video after the break (slightly NSFW language)…

It’s back! Starting on April 21, KFC is reintroducing the infamous Double Down, the fairly intense bun-less, double-chicken fillet sandwich that baffles and frightens vegetarians around the world. It’s been around since 2010, but U.S. availability has been limited in recent years.

On a side note, the return of the Double Down will likely take a little wind out of Domino’s sails after they recently introduced a monster chicken dish of their own: a pizza with fried chicken instead of a crust.

It’s clear that Michelle Clausen enjoys tinkering with treats and turning them into little pieces of pop culture art. Case in point: Stormtrooper Peeps. She uses a variety of melted candies, chips and bark to create the troopers, along with candy wafers or food gels to add in any extra details.

Check out some more Stormtrooper Peep pics after the break…

Yes, that man extremely intoxicated. There’s also a fence in his way and it’s causing him a lot of trouble, but a charitable individual shows him the secret of the rusty green fence and everything ends on a happy note. Yay!

First, Pizza Hut in the UK and Canada unveiled the hot dog stuffed crust pizza. Not to be outdone, Pizza Hut in New Zealand stepped it up a notch this year with the Chili Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza.

The crust features hot dogs with chili sauce (think: chili cookout kind of chili) embedded with little pieces of cheese. The pizza comes with ketchup and mustard packets too. If you’re not that into chili, They also carry a Cheesy Dog Stuffed Crust Pizza with sweet tomato mustard sauce. Oh gosh, I think I can hear my cholesterol levels rising as we speak.

This little boy does a perfect impression of every single person who’s ever enjoyed the magic deliciousness that is Chipotle. Gosh, it feels like it was only yesterday that I too declared that Chiptole is my life.

Domino’s has unveiled a slightly strange sounding “pizza” called “Speciality Chicken.” I’m a little lost on the overall angle behind this poultry-based creation, but here are the basics. It’s a pizza-like dish that’s had all of the dough swapped out for “12 bites of lightly breaded, 100 percent whole breast white meat chicken”. The chicken base can be dressed with a variety of toppings, including various sauces, meats, cheeses or veggies. The chicken pizza comes in four flavors: Crispy Bacon and Tomato, Spicy-Jalapeno-Pineapple, Classic Hot Buffalo and Sweet BBQ Bacon.

Watch Domino’s “Failure Is An Option” ad for the Speciality Chicken after the break along with the full press release…
