booze shoes 1

If hiding a small bottle of liquor in your bag isn’t possible, you can now purchase a pair of shoes suited for the purpose. The Johnnie Tan Leather Brogues look dashing and have a suede-lined heel compartment that holds a mini bottle of whisky, specifically Johnnie Walker Red Label. Fancy, no?

To add to the classy factor, the shoes are leather, made in Italy, part of a limited edition, and have hand-stitched detailing. Just one thing to keep in mind: don’t try to wear these shoes on your next flight.

Look at more pics of the dapper footwear after the break.

Thanks to the massive success of the Doritos Locos taco, Taco Bell may be ready to double dip on the chips. At an investor presentation, one of the slides included a Fritos taco shell under the heading “Revolutionizing the Taco.” Parent company Yum! wasn’t willing to confirm that the Fritos taco will exist, but it seems like a natural move for Taco Bell.

Since the 2012 launch, they’ve sold one billion Doritos tacos. Yes, billion with a “B.” The next big thing in fast food seems to be convincing us all that what’s in the office vending machine can be turned into taco shells and pizza crust. Anyone working on a Funyuns taco shell?

sub stop motion

Stop motion filmmaker PES has released a new video that’s both bizarre and beautiful. It features a sub made from everyday items such as sports equipement, playing cards, googly eyes, shredded paper, and more. It sounds weird, but the result is surprisingly mesmerizing.

donut

Donuts are generally round with a hole in the middle unless they’re filled, but have you ever stopped to consider whether or not the hole is optimally sized? Mathematician Dr. Eugenia Cheng did, so she used calculus to figure out the right size for the hole. She first determined that a bigger hole increases the surface area creating a crisper donut.

She then went on to measure the “squidginess” and “crispiness” ratios of the donut to determine that a ratio of 3.5:1 which comes along with an 11 mm hole makes for perfection. Of course, your tastes may vary but I’ll buy into any science that uses a term like “squidginess” to prove its point.

smaug cake 1

Smaug spends most of his time covered in gold and looking menacing, but he occasionally takes a break to look fantastic in cake form. Baker Sheila Haughie of I Love Cakes By Sheila crafted this stunning dessert for a Cakes from Middle-earth Cake Collaboration in honor of  The Hobbit. The cake features Smaug flying towards Lake-town saying “I am fire, I am death” and spewing flames. Haughie placed LEDs inside the chest of the dragon to make it glow.

ke

Keurig machines are wonderful for brewing your favorite coffees, but only if those coffees come in official Keurig K-Cups. All other cups get rejected in the new locked down machines. This has proven frustrating for many people, but there’s a simple hack for getting your Keurig to brew any cup.

All you need to do is cut the lid off of a used K-Cup and tape it over the impostor to trick the machine into thinking it’s official. You can make the hack permanent by taping a small portion of a real cup to the inside of the brewer. A pair of scissors and some tape and you’re ready to brew.
