Spider-Man can handle any task, fight any foe, right any wrong. Scale tall buildings? Done. Save the school bus on the bridge? Easy peasy. Face the grocery store for Aunt May? Ehhhhh…

Take a look at the video after the break.
There’s going to be a Dark Souls café opening in Roppongi, Tokyo this January and there’s even a menu online as proof. All the food and drinks on the menu are straight out of the game with things like Soul Arrow, Estus Flasks and Arm of Black Dragon Kalameet. Sounds tasty! If you happen to live in Japan and are feeling lucky, there’s even a lottery to enter for a chance to attend the grand opening feast.
It’s the 21st century, and while we don’t have flying cars or teleportation yet, we do have tons of cool gadgets. Like, for instance, the Pop Dongle, which makes your iPhone smell like popcorn.
The Pop Dongle (classy name, by the way) attaches to your iPhone, and it emits “popcorn smells” when you play the video game, Poptopia–so, y’know, you can really immerse yourself into the game.
To make things even stupider, the device is only available on eBay for a limited time—and the price is currently approaching $200.
New York chef Jon Lovitch created the above amalgamation of frosting and sprinkles, which the Guinness Book of World Records is officially calling the world’s largest gingerbread village.
Apparently, it took 2,240 pounds of icing, 400 pounds of candy, 500 pounds of gingerbread dough and 125 hours to make. Aside from the gingerbread homes, there’s also 65 candy trees, 5 trains and an underground subway station (talk about a sweet commute). The whole thing weighs 1.5 tons. Lovitch, who funded the entire project himself (he said it cost several thousand dollars), started baking the village back in February in his apartment, piece by piece.
Man, I bet his apartment smelled amazing.
The village is currently on display at the New York Hall of Science until Jan. 12. After the 12th, visitors to the museum can take a piece home with them. But don’t try biting into this work of art–it’s nearly a year old, and you’ll probably crack a tooth!

Big plans are a-brewin’.
