halloween r2-d2

I’ve seen some impressive pumpkin carvings and builds in my day, but Greg Aronowitz’s R2-D2 pumpkin just knocked me off my feet. Not only did he carve a pumpkin to look like the lovable droid and decorate it with candy, he built legs and rigged the pumpkin so that it has a spinning head and moves by remote control. Wow.

See this Halloween astromech come together and move in the video after the break.

game of thrones drinking

When people talk about Game of Thrones, they often mention the high number of deaths and lots of nudity. But what about all the drinking? The Movie Maniacs took it upon themselves to create a seven minute super cut that strings together all the times characters on the HBO series toss back any form of booze – wine, mead, ale – it all counts. They also keep a tally of drinks consumed by house. It will either make you thirsty or make you feel like running to the bathroom.

See which house drinks the most in the video after the break (though the answer is obvious). And yes, there are spoilers so stay away if you’re not caught up!

In the latest episode of the Reactions series by The American Chemical Society they explain why pizza tastes so darn good. It all comes down to a series of chemical reactions:

Whether it’s a plain cheese, a deep-dish stacked with meats or a thin-crust veggie delight, there’s just something about pizza that makes it delicious. There’s a lot of chemistry that goes into everything from dough to sauce to toppings to, of course, cheese. There’s also a very specific chemical reaction at work on every single slice, no matter what toppings you choose.

It’s called the Maillard Reaction, and it’s what causes the browning of the dough and toppings, as well as the release of some delicious compounds.

And here we thought it was all about high-quality ingredients.

You may know Jon Bailey as the guy who does the epic movie trailer voice in Screen Junkies’ Honest Trailers series. In this video, he’s teamed up with comedian Kevin Brueck and Alex Mandel to prank some unsuspecting diners in the food court. Bailey sits down, sound effects ready on his iPad, and narrates their meals making them so exciting, you’d think they really were on the big screen.

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!
