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!

egg scrambler

When I think of pudding, I think chocolate creamy goodness neatly packaged in a Jell-O Snack Pack, but in Japan, pudding is a pre-scrambled boiled egg that’s covered in caramel sauce.

So, if you’re looking for a convenient way to make Japanese-style pudding, then you should check out this nifty egg gizmo from Takara Tomy. Basically, you put your egg in this gyroscope-like, slot machine device and you spin it around for two minutes. Then you boil the egg for 30 minutes, and voila! You have a boiled egg that’s been pre-scrambled while it’s still in the shell.

A quick commercial is available after the break that gives you a rundown on how the machine works. Yes, there’s a talking egg that does a dance number and sings a catchy tune… and no, I don’t think he’s been boiled to death at the end of the commercial, but I’m not entirely sure.

Well, Mitchell Moffit and Gregory Brown of AsapSCIENCE have created a fun video that explains what happens to our brains and bodies after we drink coffee.

Fruit-Ninja-Swordsman

Isao Machii is one of the most gifted swordsmen in the world. The man’s reflexes are so lightning quick that he can actually slice a speeding BB gun pellet right in half with his sword. However, he recently tried his hand at being a Fruit Ninja.

Machii, who’s also the current Guinness World Record holder for a whole mess of sword records, competed in a Fruit Ninja challenge here in Los Angeles. He diced up a wide range of fruit, and let me just say that I’m so very happy that I’m not a banana.

Check out all the fruit-slicing action after the break…

pizza

You might think the life of a pizza maker is all fun and glamour, but it’s hard work. One clever pizza maker decided to prove this by attaching a GoPro to the tongs that pull your hot and tasty pizza from the oven. Watch as a dizzying array of pizzas are pulled from the conveyor to be handed over to the hungry masses. Warning: Watching this video will practically guarantee you’ll want pizza for dinner tonight.

If Peter Quill had a signature drink (albeit one that’s sans alcohol, because maybe he has to fly somewhere) it would definitely be the Star-Lord Mocktail. It’s described as being a bit sweet, thanks to the strawberry orange juice and pineapple juice, but it’s all balanced out nicely with some ginger beer. There’s also a habanero pepper added into the mix for a real extra kick!

eggs

The inclusion of eggs makes just about anything better. You can fry them, bake them, put them on a sandwich, mix them into cups – the list goes on. Besides being delicious, they’re beautiful. Bright yellow yolks, runny whites – Claire Thomas captures a ton of egg sexiness in a short appropriately titled, “Eggs.”

Watch the video after the break. You may want to go purchase a dozen eggs first because you’re going to crave them.

The Internet’s practically over-flowing with videos of folks (ranging from Oprah to Chris Pratt) pouring ice water over their heads in the name of charity. The videos are meant to raise awareness about Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), which is also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Because of these videos, the ALS association has raised over $15 million.

Now that’s all good and fine, but things got downright creepy when Wendy Clark, the senior vice president of integrated marketing at Coca-Cola Co., challenged Ronald McDonald to take the ice bucket challenge. As you’ll see in the following video, Ronald is a little too enthusiastic about the whole thing, and to top it off, he challenges all the gingers of the world to take the ice bucket challenge too.

weird commercial copy

You know when you’re on your way to work and you’re so hungry, and I mean like I’m-hallucinating-and-totally-starving-hungry, and the whole world around you starts to morph into tasty snacks? In this Pepsi commercial, a commuter gets a hankering for a hot dog, and then he “imagines” that the subway train is actually a giant chain of hot dogs. Nothing weird about that at all.

cake

Everyone loves cake, even when it’s a lie. Although you may think all cakes are made by a baker with mad skills, there are actually machines that will ice a cake to perfection. These videos show the machines in action, but be warned. They are mesmerizing and they will make you hellbent on having a slice of cake sometime today.
