Ever wondered what a meat-machine gun would look like? (Yeah, that sounds rather dirty.) Anyway, the guys on The Science Channel’s “What Could Possibly Go Wrong” TV show felt inclined to make a meatball-firing Gatling gun out of PVC piping, and as you can see in the following video, it actually works!

While recording a promotional video for the upcoming cookbook “FUDS: A Complete Encyclofoodia from Tickling Shrimp to Not Dying in a Restaurant“, celebrity chef Mario Batali talked about the foreword he wrote as well as some of the recipes contained therein.

As you’ll see after the jump, he started out well when listing such appetizing delights as “Six Hot Dog Weiners” and “Secret Item With Surprise Bag”, but was struggling to maintain his composure by the time he got around to “Hot Melted Crayon Wax Served in Discarded Monopoly Thimbles”.

Ever felt the urge to go to your nearest convenience store and buy up all the non-alcoholic drinks so you could mix them all together and make one massively disgusting concoction? Yeah, I haven’t either. But YouTuber Hajime did just that spending 56,365 yen (US$475) in the process.

He named the resulting drink “infinity coffee,” and it includes a blend of everything from milk-based drinks, canned coffees and soda to fruit juices, yogurt drinks and energy drinks.

Then he drank it. It wasn’t pretty. Find out what happened in the video after the break…

There doesn’t seem to be many details about this demonstration, but the result speaks for itself. A chef with incredible knife skills and patience carefully slices a carrot for several minutes before unfurling it into a perfectly symmetrical net.

If you want to try and figure out what the hell he’s doing, it is chronicled in the video after the jump. If you prefer instant satisfaction, skip to 3:20.

Cedar and Stuart Anderson, a father and son inventing duo, have honey on their minds. They designed a wooden hive for bees that’s called Flow that features a built-in tap that makes the honey-harvesting process a real breeze.

The Andersons designed the box so that it places a minimal amount of stress on the bees during harvesting (well, save for the brief moment of panic that the bees have when they realize all their honey’s gone), and it includes a small glass viewing port, so you can supervise the bees while they’re working.

Cookie Monster is known primarily for stuffing his face full of cookies every chance he gets. This video shows the more thoughtful side of the furry blue monster as he shares his deep thoughts about food. It was inspired by the r/ShowerThoughts reddit and it will definitely make you laugh. Onion rings are vegetable donuts? This is brilliant!

Hard candy is a lot more than a fused hunk of sugar that resides in a bowl at grandma’s house for years on end. La Confiserie CandyLabs in beautiful Montreal, Canada is making this stuff the old fashioned way and it’s mesmerizing to watch.

This artisan candy shop specializes in handcrafted hard candies which often feature fun shapes on the inside (see above). The shop recently shot a short YouTube clip that captures all of the hard work that goes into making hard candies. The entire process (which involves cooking the candy at just the right temp, and also manipulating it constantly) takes roughly three hours!

Every country has its own particular take on breakfast, and these American kids had the chance to try out a view different breakfast dishes from around the world. Their reactions, especially when they try some of the more unusual dishes (like preserved eggs!), are pretty entertaining.

The swords in Final Fantasy are legendary, and the latest from Super-Fan Builds turns those deadly weapons into an incredible set of kitchen knives. These aren’t just for looks either. This lucky fan can now slice and dice her veggies with Sephiroth’s Masamune, Cloud’s Buster Sword, Squall’s Gunblade, and Auron’s Katana. And because a hunk of regular wood just wouldn’t do, they all come in a Ultros knife block.
