Cookie artist Amber Spiegel (aka SweetAmbs) has a knack for creating incredible cookies and hypnotic videos to go along with them. Seriously, I’ve watched the minion cookie decoration video at least a dozen times. Where has the day gone? Check out more examples below.
Peter Brown likes to experiment with unusual materials in his maker projects. It just so happens that the Internet loves things that are unusual. The Internet also loves things that are stupid and dangerous. Whaddaya know? Building an axe handle out of gummy bears is a little bit of all three. See how the process unfolded in the video below.]]>
To celebrate Tim Burton’s 58th birthday, ThinkGeek is running a big sale with up to 60% on over 50 “curious” items. Items that include everything from digital wizard hoodies to Flux Capacitor USB car chargers. Oddly, there aren’t any Burton-themed items on this list. No NBX teapots or Edward Scissorhands office supplies. Nothing. They do have an electronic cat tail though, which has a Halloween-y vibe I guess.
Hey, it’s a sale on nerdy stuff—I’ll take it. Make sure to grab your favorites before they sell out.]]>

With these Star Trek LCARS and Isolinear Chip Magnets you can access important data like grocery lists, “A” papers, and adorable / disturbing drawings of you as a redshirt on some distant planet with blood spouting out of your body in all directions. Helpfully, “Dad” was scribbled above with arrows pointing to the corpse just so there’s no confusion.

This past Wednesday, a tornado touched down in Kokomo, Indiana, and promptly flattened a Starbucks. Though damage was extensive, the authorities didn’t report any injuries at the coffee shop. As you’ll see in the video below, that was a bona fide miracle.
The tornado was described by the National Weather Service as being “large and extremely dangerous”. The damage was well documented, including this terrifying video sent to WTHR-TV by Brandon Mobley.
Starbucks released the following statement about the incident:
“We want to express our heartfelt concern for all those personally affected by a tornado that touched down in the community Kokomo, Indiana, this afternoon. We are relieved to report all partners (employees) and customers from the Starbucks store at US 35 & SR 22 are safe.We will continue to support our store partners and local authorities in any way we can.”

We are, as a species, making great strides in global pizza deployment. Domino’s has already unveiled a robotic pizza delivery tank and a specialized delivery vehicle. The Xavier University in Ohio even has a pizza vending machine to allow their (mutant?) students to get hot ‘n’ fresh pizza quickly. Now Domino’s in New Zealand has announced that they will soon be completing deliveries with flying drones, thanks to a partnership with drone-focused delivery firm Flirtey. They made their announcement by completing a test delivery of a piping hot pizza in Auckland using a drone built with the help of 3D printing.
The plan is to launch drone pizza delivery in New Zealand later this year, and an American expansion seems to be on the books as well. In a press release, Flirtey’s CEO notes:
“New Zealand has the most forward-thinking aviation regulations in the world, and with the new U.S. drone regulations taking effect on August 29, Flirtey is uniquely positioned to bring the same revolutionary Flirtey drone delivery service to partners within the United States.”
Personally, we can’t wait for drone delivery to make it stateside, bringing us one step closer to the glorious future predicted by Wall-E. Truly, it’s an exciting time to be alive and also eating pizza.

For his latest stunt, daredevil Cemre Candar thought it would be a good idea to take a bath in a tub filled with the equivalent of 1,250 bottles of hot sauce. He was wrong.
As you’ll see in the video below, he went so far as to consume hot peppers and dunk his head in the mixture. The result was overwhelming misery. It’s like watching someone get pepper sprayed on Cops—if the entire show was dedicated to pepper spraying one guy.
