I’ve been playing Pokémon Go for a week or so now, and while I’m becoming something of an expert at catching them, I still have a few questions about these crazy creatures. Like, how the heck do they eat?

Thankfully, Wassabi Productions came up with this highly researched video that shows us how all the best Pokémon get their grub on. Prepare for weirdness. [click to continue…]

Chris Pratt recently tried making a Donald Duck pancake for his three-year-old son, Jack. As you’ll see in the video below, Jack was quick to point out that his Dad needs a little bit of practice with his pancakes. He was being nice—the creature above is an abomination.

Overwatch cosplay is getting downright clever. This time Vanessa Wedge and Auzzie L. dressed up as D.Va and Soldier: 76, respectively. Soldier: 76’s dad outfit is spot on, and the shoot looks like it was a lot of fun to pull together.

If you’re wondering why D.Va is snacking on Doritos, here’s a bit of context. Per Overwatch‘s backstory, D.Va used to be a pro StarCraft 2 player. Fans sort of took that “pro gamer” idea and ran with it, and they started cranking out artwork and cosplay that features D.Va doing stereotypical gamer things, like, of course, snacking on Doritos and chugging Mountain Dew.

Neon Genesis Evangelion fans with a taste for the finer things in life might enjoy these classy Evangelion-themed tea cup and saucer sets by Noritake.

The company has been manufacturing high-quality ceramic and glass vessels for over 100 years, and these bone china pieces look pretty stellar. They’re based on the color schemes of Unit 01 and Unit 02 and include a pattern of leaves and flowers with gold trim accents. They even subtly placed the NERV logo in the center of the saucer.

Though Martian soil contains a hefty dose of toxic metals like lead and arsenic, Dutch scientists with Wageningen University have recently announced that rye, tomatoes, peas and radishes grown in Martian soil are actually safe to consume.

The scientists have been growing crops in simulated red planet soil since 2013, and while they actually haven’t tasted any of the produce yet, they note that these four can be grown safely on Mars without absorbing dangerous amounts of heavy metals. The researchers are testing other crops (yes, potatoes is among them), and they’re currently working to raise funds for this red-planet-veggie project.

Jenn Aguilar is definitely a shoe-in for the “Punniest” Mom of the Year award. Since last fall, Aguilar has been drawing up these cute and extremely pun-packed lunchbag cartoons for her children: Konner, 12, and Kale, 14. She told BuzzFeed that, at first, her kids were a little embarrassed by the “punny” bags. But, she said, “I stopped doing them for a little bit and they were like, ‘Where are the bags?’”

It takes Aguilar roughly 20 to 25 minutes to draw up the bags every night. Though she comes up with a lot of the puns on her own, she sometimes uses Google for inspiration. Before she doodled puns, she used to put little notes in her boys’ lunches–but most of the time they either lost the notes or didn’t read them. So, she set about to create something that was a little more “impactful.”

“I definitely think they enjoy the bags, even if they don’t want to admit it,” she said. Check out more examples below. [click to continue…]
