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.

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!

While recording a promotional video for the upcoming cookbook “FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant“, celebrity chef Mario Batali talked about the foreword he wrote as well as some of the recipes contained therein.

As you’ll see after the jump, he started out well when listing such appetizing delights as “Six Hot Dog Weiners” and “Secret Item With Surprise Bag”, but was struggling to maintain his composure by the time he got around to “Hot Melted Crayon Wax Served in Discarded Monopoly Thimbles”.

rainbow heart cookies

After watching the video on the making of these Rainbow Heart Cookies by Eugenie Kitchen, I’m both mesmerized and convinced that I’ll never have the patience to cook them. That said, I love that people put this kind of time and dedication into cooking something whimsical.

Head after the break to see how it’s done.

Ever felt the urge to go to your nearest convenience store and buy up all the non-alcoholic drinks so you could mix them all together and make one massively disgusting concoction? Yeah, I haven’t either. But YouTuber Hajime did just that spending 56,365 yen (US$475) in the process.

He named the resulting drink “infinity coffee,” and it includes a blend of everything from milk-based drinks, canned coffees and soda to fruit juices, yogurt drinks and energy drinks.

Then he drank it. It wasn’t pretty. Find out what happened in the video after the break…

There doesn’t seem to be many details about this demonstration, but the result speaks for itself. A chef with incredible knife skills and patience carefully slices a carrot for several minutes before unfurling it into a perfectly symmetrical net.

If you want to try and figure out what the hell he’s doing, it is chronicled in the video after the jump. If you prefer instant satisfaction, skip to 3:20.

beehive copy

Cedar and Stuart Anderson, a father and son inventing duo, have honey on their minds. They designed a wooden hive for bees that’s called Flow that features a built-in tap that makes the honey-harvesting process a real breeze.

The Andersons designed the box so that it places a minimal amount of stress on the bees during harvesting (well, save for the brief moment of panic that the bees have when they realize all their honey’s gone), and it includes a small glass viewing port, so you can supervise the bees while they’re working.

steampunk-mixer

Presentation is important, and The Standard & Co. Bar is doing it right with this awesome hand-crank steampunk-style mixer. Owner Darrell Greig had this double mixer specially built for his bar from an 1800’s drawing he found. In a recent interview with Green Bay Press, Greig said the device gets lots of second looks.

“Something to be fun, something to catch people’s eye. When it lights up at night, people all want to know what’s going on. They think it’s crazy, people love it. They giggle.”

Check out a video of the mixer in action after the break (video may autoplay).

tomato robot

Ok, I love tomatoes just as much as the next guy, but I don’t think I could stomach eating a tomato while I’m jogging around the block.

Kagome, a Japanese juice and ketchup company, designed this strange backpack/tomato dispenser for the Japan Marathon. The health benefits of tomatoes aside, the backpack is really just a PR stunt to help to promote tomatoes: since 2008, Dole Japan has sponsored the Japan Marathon, and they provide tons of bananas to help keep all those runners energized. It looks like Kagome is hoping to drive some attention away from bananas and over towards tomatoes.

Yeah, I think I’d rather snack on a banana while I’m running.

Cookie Monster is known primarily for stuffing his face full of cookies every chance he gets. This video shows the more thoughtful side of the furry blue monster as he shares his deep thoughts about food. It was inspired by the r/ShowerThoughts reddit and it will definitely make you laugh. Onion rings are vegetable donuts? This is brilliant!
