Sometimes you get hungry when you’re flying a fighter jet. And when hunger strikes, whatcha going to do? Grab a Snickers bar, of course! This fun video shows how a fighter pilot shares a chocolate bar with his co-pilot, and it’s rather entertaining. Due to the acceleration forces that are at work in the cockpit, the bar essentially floats back towards the co-pilot.

Cat cafes are popping up all over Japan, so I definitely get the appeal behind this kitchen brand. When heated up, can be used to burn a little kitty paw onto your food as a fun decorative flourish. It’s certainly a lot better than the reality of your cat walking all over your food.

Growlers typically come in two sizes: 32 ounce and 64 ounce. However, if you need to transport more beer than a growler but less beer than a keg—that’s where the 128-ounce “Juggernaut” from Drink Tanks comes in. It’s cast from stainless steel and features double wall vacuum insulation.

You can also order one that comes with a CO2-powered “Kegulator” cap, which will help keep the beer pressurized. It even features a dispensing tap.

Some say that necessity is the mother of invention, but Amy over at Oh Bite It! notes that “laziness” often inspires her. Her latest culinary invention, a sandwich pull-apart, is extremely simple to make, and it looks pretty darn tasty. This one might be a great treat to make for a party, or a big get-together or… well, you could make this for one yourself if you want to experience the joys of a serious food coma.

Corn on the cob sure is tasty, but it can be tough to spread butter on without making a slippery mess. However, this little tool can help. All you have to do is fill the spreader (which was inspired by the “sail” of a submarine) with butter, and then you rub it up and down the cob. There’s also a little compartment at the top that you can fill with salt. Genius.

POOL-1505

If you don’t understand the appeal of floating around on a pool toy that’s shaped like a giant slice of pizza, then I’m pretty sure you’re a robot. So, if you aren’t a robot, then consider picking up this nifty slice of pizza pool float which will be available for purchase some time this April.

Reduce. Reuse. Grow. is a sustainability company that’s based in San Luis Obispo, CA, and they’ve developed a new kind of biodegradable coffee cup that has seeds buried within the cup’s exterior.

The cup features seeds that are native to wherever the cup is distributed, and once it’s planted it’ll sprout into flowers or trees. However, even if the cup doesn’t make it into the ground and it ends up in a landfill, it’ll break down into nutrient rich compost over the course of 180 days.

cokebathtub copy

It’s the next best thing to jacuzzi.

YouTuber Hajime recently took it upon himself to cover his entire body in Mentos and then jump into a ridiculously small bathtub full of Coke Zero. The result, as you can probably guess, was rather fizzy. Also, I now know what a bathtub full of Coke looks like… and it’s definitely unappealing.

I can’t believe I’m saying this… but that towel looks delicious! Designer Jenny Pokryvailo (the genius behind the Loch Ness ladle) came up with this cool sushi kitchen towel, and the trick here is that when you roll it up properly, the towel actually looks like a real sushi roll! Seriously, though, don’t try to eat this towel.

gatlinggun copy

Ever wondered what a meat-machine gun would look like? (Yeah, that sounds rather dirty.) Anyway, the guys on The Science Channel’s “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” TV show felt inclined to make a meatball-firing Gatling gun out of PVC piping, and as you can see in the following video, it actually works!
