These cookies are so beautifully decorated that it's wrong to eat them

Even though all cookies should be eaten so more cookies will be made to be eaten, I would feel so guilty if I ate any of these cookies made by SweetAmbsCookie. They are a work of art. The painstaking detail and beautiful decorations are unreal. You wouldn't want to eat a painting made by Picasso, right? » 10/31/14 11:31pm Yesterday 11:31pm

The world is now safer and better than ever and here's the evidence

These series of statistical graphics show that, while there's still plenty of war, hunger, sickness, and poverty in the world, things are much better than what they were only a few decades ago—not to talk about centuries ago. We are still far from utopia, but the data is stubborn: We are getting there. Fast. » 10/29/14 11:47pm Wednesday 11:47pm

Video: Oysters are fantastic at filtering dirty water

Oysters are fun to eat because they're delicious and celebratory and remind you of the ocean. Turns out that last part is especially true because those suckers are just fantastic at filtering out dirty water. Watch these oysters slurp up the dirty water in the tank in this time lapse and make it all clean. » 10/29/14 7:40pm Wednesday 7:40pm

Fireball Whisky contains an antifreeze ingredient

Fireball is a ragingly popular, sickly sweet elixir that's taken America by storm. Fireball is also made with propylene glycol, a common ingredient in some antifreezes. That's an unsettling fact, so unsettling that Norway, Sweden, and Finland just recalled the booze. But it's not necessarily as unsettling as it sounds. » 10/29/14 2:46pm Wednesday 2:46pm

The new Double Down burger is even more ridiculous than the original

Foodbeast found a new KFC Double Down burger that is even more insane than the original: the Zinger Double Down King at KFCs in Korea. Instead of just sandwiching bacon and cheese with two fried chicken filets, this Double Down uses the same fried chicken for buns but adds a sauced up burger patty in between too. » 10/23/14 12:53am 10/23/14 12:53am

Magnets Are the Secret To the Ultimate Cookie Dunking Contraption

For every Kickstarted product that succeeds and makes it into the hands of consumers, there are hundreds that don't. The Dunkin' Buddy's Kickstarter campaign unfortunately didn't succeed in raising ten grand earlier this year, but its creators realize how important its existence is to mankind, and they're determined… » 10/21/14 3:10pm 10/21/14 3:10pm

Compressing Containers Squeeze the Air Out of Your Stored Food

Anyone who's squeezed every last molecule of air out of a Ziploc bag full of leftovers knows that food lasts longer that way. But instead of man-handling a plastic bag, or buying some kind of vacuum contraption to get the air out, consider upgrading your canisters to Prepara's new Evak line which features a manual… » 10/20/14 5:00pm 10/20/14 5:00pm

Short film: The mind-blowing feast of a three Michelin-star restaurant

DiverXO—a three Michelin-star restaurant in Madrid, Spain—is known for its radical flavors and textures. Eating there is not just about the food. It's an experience for the senses that might not blow your brains off literally, as they show in this short film, but in some ways it certainly does. NSFW. » 10/13/14 7:22pm 10/13/14 7:22pm

Zombie Cutting Boards Are Possibly The Most College Thing Ever

We're now past the first week of October, which is traditionally right about the time that college students realize that they might need more in their kitchen than an endless supply of Solo cups. If you're on the hunt for a chopping board to do some actual cooking on (or just to lower the tone a little further), these… » 10/11/14 9:00pm 10/11/14 9:00pm

This insane wall of fire has to be the awesomest way to cook meat

Sure, a charcoal grill or a barbecue pit can roast some delicious meat but if you want to up the insane level, I'm not sure anything can top this: a wall of fire made from 30 steel drums welded together. It's like barbecuing with dragon fire or a volcano or a never ending bomb explosion. And it looks awesome. » 10/09/14 9:01pm 10/09/14 9:01pm

What Are Artificial Sweeteners Really Doing to Our Bodies?

They're what stimulate your sweet tooth without adding girth to your waistline; they give diet colas and sugar-free snacks a saccharine kick without the consequences. At least that's the idea. But these sweeteners have been the subject of hoaxes and misinformation for years, slowly discrediting their wondrous health… » 10/08/14 2:35pm 10/08/14 2:35pm

Seamless Roulette Is the Best, Most Terrifying Thing to Happen to Lunch

Seamless is at once one of the greatest and most ruinous gifts ever bestowed upon man. Still, while the service has vastly simplified the process of acquiring both lunch and heart disease, there are still just a few too many options. Fortunately (?), Seamless Roulette has taken care of that. » 10/07/14 5:10pm 10/07/14 5:10pm

This Jet Engine Is Actually a Grill That Automatically Rotates Your Food

It only makes sense that a barbecue that looks like a jet engine fallen off a plane is called the Jet Grill, but—and some of you might be disappointed in this—it doesn't cook your meats via some high-powered afterburner. The design and functionality is still clever, though, as it harnesses rising heat to keep your… » 10/07/14 5:00pm 10/07/14 5:00pm

Which brand of chips has the most chips in a bag of chips?

Dan Gentile of Thrillist has done God's work. He decided to take it upon himself to answer a question anyone who has ever sat on a couch for a long period of time has wondered: How many chips are actually in a bag of chips? And which type of chips has more full chips vs broken chips? And more. » 10/02/14 9:19pm 10/02/14 9:19pm

Charring A Whisky Barrel Transforms It Into A Portal To Hell

Scotland might be the spiritual home of whisky, but Japan is perfecting its own unique take on the liquor. At Nikka's Yoichi distillery in Hokkaido, watching a barrel get charred—for flavor!—looks a hell of lot like the living flames of satan's demons are being unleashed from within those wooden staves. » 9/30/14 7:05pm 9/30/14 7:05pm

10 delicious ways countries around the world cook their steaks

With my steaks, I prefer the unbeatable seasoning one-two punch of salt and pepper. And well, maybe some garlic if I'm feeling frisky. I just like the taste of red meat too much. But around the world? You'll get steaks seasoned and marinated with orange peel, lime zest, soy sauce, shrimp paste, sugar and much more. » 9/29/14 8:31pm 9/29/14 8:31pm
