lotr-rings-topTakayas Custom Jewelry looked to J.R.R. Tolkien’s fantasy realm for a little inspiration when they created this incredible wedding ring set for LOTR fans Wesley and Sarah.

For Wesley’s ring, Takayas looked to The Key to Erebor for design inspiration while Sarah’s rings incorporated elements from the Leaves of Lorien and Arwen’s Evenstar necklace (they’re also designed to fit seamlessly together).

The finished products look like they were actually forged in Middle Earth. Take a closer look on Fashionably Geek

Hippos love watermelons, and they have giant mouths. So watching them eat a melon is like watching it get thrown into a trash compactor.

Nagasaki Bio Park in Japan compiled a video showing feeding time, and as you’ll see below, there’s no table etiquette, no cleanliness and no concern for pits or rinds… only watermelons being crushed in the gaping maw of a hungry hungry hippo.

It’s surprisingly satisfying to watch.

120-sided-die-e1462137031792When French-Belgian mathematician Eugéne Catalan came up with the concept of the disdyakis triacontahedron or 120-sided die over 150 years ago, it was, in theory, the most mathematically fair die possible.

Catalan’s theory has become a reality thanks to the talents and efforts of Robert Fathauer, Robert Bosch, and Henry Segerman who have created the first actual D120. Luckily for dice fans, they’ve started The Dice Lab to make it available.

They also made a video about the D120 and the mathematical magic behind it, which you can watch on Nerd Approved

A place in Korea, apparently called “The Place”, is taking pizza eating to an extreme new level with this Korean Bomb Pizza.

The offering consists of a (weird looking) pizza concealed inside a dough bubble that is doused with oil and set ablaze. Afterward, the bubble is removed with scissors and the pizza is cut into slices.

If you’re having trouble getting a picture in your mind, you’re in luck, because there’s a video of the process below.
