If you are a fan of the movie Chef, you’ll enjoy this. If you appreciate food porn, you’ll enjoy this. If you’re really hungry right now, we’re very sorry.

Jon Favreau made some Cuban sandwiches for the Super Bowl and GOOD LORD.

3d-printed-armor3D printing master Melissa Ng of Lumecluster recently contacted the goddess known as Felicia Day with an idea for a project that would involve creating “a full regalia of armor” for Day to model.

With the help of Shapeways, this is the result. Ahem…holy crap.

This could only happen in Florida.

A 23-year-old Florida man was arrested this week for an incident that occurred last October. It allegedly involved heaving a three-and-a-half foot long alligator through a Wendy’s drive thru window.

Apparently he picked the reptile up off the side of the road, drove to Wendy’s, ordered a large beverage, paid, and then pulled out the gator and flung it through the window. Why? Because Florida.

Actually, nobody seems to know the reason, although his parents are claiming it was all a dumb prank.

The alligator survived its fast food encounter and the suspect was charged with second degree petty theft (of the reptile), possession and injury of an alligator, and aggravated assault with a deadly weapon without intent to kill. After the arrest, Wendy’s released the following statement:

“This unfortunate incident occurred last year. The safety and security of our restaurant teams is very important to us, and we’re glad that no one was injured as a result of this situation.”

The arrangement of handmade ketchup-flavored tortilla flowers can be delivered to your valentine’s door for free, but only if you live in Toronto, Vancouver or Montreal.

Thankfully, for those who live nowhere near those areas, the delivery page offers step by step instructions for making you own.

rug-10If there’s one thing that urban apartment dwellers like myself miss, it’s being able to relax in a natural environment. Luckily, artist Alexandra Kehayoglou has a solution. Using remnants from her parent’s carpet business in Buenos Aires, Kehayoglou creates carpets, rugs, tapestries, and other textiles that bring nature to you.

sakura pepsi

On March 8th, Pepsi will bring a taste of cherry blossoms to Japan with their new Pepsi Sakura.

The new offering continues a long line of unusual Pepsi flavors in the country and will reportedly offer a light pink hue and the smell of sweet sakura.

There’s no word on the actual taste, but since Japan is the land of weird flavors, it will likely be well received.

Matchless-Star-Wars-2-02022016Geeky clothing has exploded in the last decade or so, as evidenced by the Doctor Who inspired shirt I’m wearing as I type this. Some of this stuff, like my shirt, is distinctly as the lower-end of casual wear – your Target Jurassic Park shirts and dresses from Hot Topic. Some stuff, however, is distinctly high-end fashion, and has the high-end price tag to boot.

Adding to the growing list of high-end items is this range of Star Wars-inspired jackets from Matchless London. The range is a delightful mix of jackets based on items worn in the movies themselves, meaning you can buy Han Solo’s vest, an awesome jacket inspired by Darth Vader’s ensemble, Leia’s Hoth coat, and the kind of leather coat Obi-Wan Kenobi would’ve worn if he’d been a badass cowboy instead of a Jedi Knight.
