This is even funnier because the artist Sephko spelled her name wrong too. Poor Daenerys.
Let’s just go with Dany.

Did you know that you can boost the volume of your smartphone’s built-in speaker simply by popping it into an empty glass? Alternatively, you could get the Hydra SmartBottle from ThinkGeek which works as a Bluetooth 2.1 speaker, an FM radio, a speakerphone, a white noise generator, an emergency light, and a party light. It has a built-in battery pack for mobile charging, a hidden compartment for your keys, a bottle opener in case you fancy drinking something a little harder… oh, and it also holds 20 ounces of liquid, if that’s your bag. Seriously, this thing has more features than a video game blog during E3.

In an effort to bring the world food as it was in the 18th century, YouTuber Jonathan Townsend has recreated fried chicken using an old English recipe from 1736.
Sourced from Nathan Bailey’s Dictionarium Domesticum, the preparation differs from present-day fried chicken in virtually every way, though the results look the same. Instead of a typical buttermilk-based marinade, this recipe involves a three hour soak in lemon juice and malt vinegar, and replacing wet and dry breading with a single-step application of flour and white wine.
As for the frying itself, is is believed that lard or or clarified butter were typically used in place of vegetable oil.

And by that I mean you’ll choke to death.

In the following video, Han Solo learns the hard way that you should never drink and drive the Millennium Falcon. I would have thought C-3PO would be the voice of reason and Chewbacca would have taken his keys.
I mean, Lyft and Uber are both operating in Mos Eisley. [click to continue…]
So that’s one small latte. Would you like art on that?

Mathematician Clifford Stoll has turned his attention to the most popular method of pizza consumption and concluded that it is “remarkable”.
Stoll reports that pizza prefers a Gaussian curvature despite being partially flat and having no natural curvatures. Humans correct this by folding the slice in half lengthwise using mathematician Carl Gauss’s “theorem egregium” or “remarkable theorem.” This improves the slice’s rigidity and makes it easier to eat.
So if you don’t fold your pizza when eating, you’re doing it wrong. Another of life’s great debates has been solved by math.
At any rate, if you’re good with numbers or you just want to watch a guy get super excited about pizza math, you can check out the video below. [click to continue…]
