  • Hello, Bacon Fried Oreos; Goodbye, Beach Body

    Oh, Bite It is not exactly known for sharing healthy recipes. In fact, one look at their homepage, with such insanely mouthwatering “foods” as Bacon Fried Mozzarella Sticks and Pound Cake, Bacon, and Nutella Melt and you would think you’re a Midwestern state fair. And in the winter, there’s nothing wrong with (over-)indulging in such delectable treats since all your layers make you look like the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man anyway. But now that the the sun is finally shining, it’s time to reclaim your beach body. Which is what makes this recipe so horrible. Bacon Fried Oreos are just what the name implies–Oreos wrapped in bacon, then fried. You can read the recipe, but this isn’t exactly brain surgery. We especially appreciate the commenter who recommended using Double Stuf Oreos. Those will be perfect for any 4/20 celebrations…we’re talking about the Feast of St. Agnes of Montepulciano, of course.

  • Here’s How Game of Thrones Characters Compare in The Book Vs. The Show

    Last night the 5th season of Game of Thrones premiered, which completely immersed us in the gory land of Westeros, but have you ever wondered how well the characters on the show had been imagined in the books by George R.R. Martin? Illustrator Magali Villeneuve has created a series of portraits based on detailed characteristics taken from Martin’s books. Spoiler alert, Daenerys is still hot and Greyjoy still has that punchable face. Oh and Tyrion is missing a nose.

  • Stephen Hawking Covering Monty Python Is Out Of This World [Video]

    Record Store Day exclusives are often little more than albums you already own in a million formats pressed on a different color vinyl. But this year, you can pass on the multicolored vinyl of that Flaming Lips song from Batman Forever and instead pick up Stephen Hawking Sings Monty Python. That’s right, the famed physicist who speaks through his computer sings Monty Python’s “Galaxy Song” on a limited-edition 7-inch single available April 18. And if you’re not hip enough for vinyl, fear not, you can download the track and play a sweet Asteroids game featuring Hawking and the Python blokes at Monty Python.

  • The States That Love And Love To Hate Nickelback [Infographic]

    Nickelback seems to be one of those bands that you either love or hate. Even if you never really listened to them, the Internet has forced you to form an opinion of the Canadian rockers. Second only to Creed on Rolling Stone’s “Worst Bands of the 90s” list, you may think everyone hates Nickelback, but that’s simply not true. Music app AccuRadio took a look at users’ playlists and found that the US varies greatly when it comes to Nickelback. See where your state sides below and let us know if you agree. New Jersey, I am disappoint.

  • This Family Has Built Their Own Waterworld [8 Photos]

    Sometimes you just don’t want to wait for global warming to melt the ice caps before constructing your self-sustaining floating compound. At least, that appears to be the thinking of Freedom Cove operators Catherine King and Wayne Adams. Actually, Wayne and Catherine, along with their two children Eleanor and Alistair, didn’t create their float-home as a way to escape society. It’s actually a way for the family to reconnect with nature in the lush British Columbia surroundings. Made up of twelve platforms, Freedom Cove features a number of wooden structures, living spaces, and greenhouses connected via walkways. The many greenhouses produce fruits and vegetables while water is supplied by rain and a waterfall. If you’d like to check out this cheery take on Waterworld, you can visit Freedom Cove via Browning Pass Charters. It’s probably a good idea to make friends with the family just in case…

  • Watch ‘Lil Thrones’, a New Game of Thrones Spinoff for Children

    Author of the Game of Thrones series, George R.R. Martin has collaborated on a Game of Thrones show for children. In live action series adaptation of his books, the world of Westeros has been known to be a bit on the gratuitous side; beheadings, throat slits and a bit of nudity, so Martin is launching a new series, which he premiered on Conan. The gory decapitation of limbs and heads are still there, however the catchy Beatles-type tune is quite catchy.

  • Astronauts Take GoPro On Spacewalk [Video]

    We’ve all seen those “First Burger/Beer/Burrito in Space” videos and they’re cool and all, but a GoPro and food strapped to a balloon is not particularly awe-inspiring. And those GoPros never really make it to “space” anyway. But now there’s nod denying that GoPro has been to space, as NASA astronauts Barry “Butch” Wilmore and Terry Virts used the camera on a recent ISS spacewalk. The footage is absolutely incredible…but why is there noise in space???

  • This 1991 Sizzler Ad Needs to Be Examined for Science

    Last week I watched an enlightening documentary on the “religion” of Scientology. Embedded deep within the loins of that doc was a wildly ’90s and enthusiastically scientologific, which I couldn’t help but notice resemblances to this 1991 Sizzler promo video. The Sizzler video will undoubtedly take over the internet in the coming days, but we still feel the need to call out the most outlandish sequence of events captured in a single video, we’ve ever seen. Enjoy the video then scroll down.  

  • Smells Like Teen Spirit Played On Floppy Drives Is Full Of 90s [Video]

    Long before the days of memory cards and thumb drives, students relied on floppy drives to transfer their work between school and home. Those days are long gone and computers haven’t come with the once-ubiquitous floppy drives for years, but apparently there is still a use for them–as music instruments. The grating noises can be pitch controlled and programmed to perform popular songs, like this clip featuring Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” It’s funny to think that at the time that song came out, this project would have cost a few thousand dollars.

  • Incredible Close-Ups Of Insect Faces [15 Photos]

    Indonesian photographer Yudy Sauw finds beauty in the most unlikely of subjects–insects and other creepy-crawlies. Sauw places the bugs between just half an inch and four inches away from his camera and uses a macro lens to capture their close-ups. He then digitally enhances the photos, bringing out details that we’d never be able to see with the naked eye. And in the case of the Jumping Spider, that’s probably for the best. For more of Sauw’s work, check out his portfolio at 500px.

  • Mini Is Updating Driving Goggles For The 21st Century

    Driving goggles might be making a comeback, but instead of protecting your eyes while cruising around in your Duesenberg, these 21st century goggles will enhance your driving experience via augmented reality. Created by BMW’s Mini division, these hi-tech goggles look like classic eyewear but they feature the latest in AR technology from Qualcomm. Much like Jaguar’s AR windshield that we shared last year, Mini’s goggles will give the driver an uninterrupted view of their surroundings and will also project arrows onto the road for navigational purposes to save from glancing at a screen. Additionally, the goggles will display message notifications and then the car will read them aloud. The goggles are just a prototype, like Jaguar’s windshield, but the similarity between the two projects is a good indication of where the auto industry is headed. It’s just a shame all these cool gadgets are being developed at the same time as the driverless cars that will enslave us in the near future.

  • There’s A Drake Search Engine, Because The Internet

    Do you find that your Google searches are lacking in Drake? Well that’s pretty weird, but apparently you’re not alone because someone has developed a Drake search engine called Let Me Drake That For You. Tyler Smith, a developer based in California, created the Drizzy-themed site after realizing how pretty much everything can be tied to the Canadian rapper. Just put in your search terms, such as “Lebron,” and you’ll be rewarded with results that only involve your query and Drake. And for more info on how the site works, check out Fader’s interview with developer Tyler Smith.

  • This 1974 Cocktail Construction Graphic is a True Technical Work of Art

    Any engineer, architect or technical designer will appreciate this. The National Archives produced this interesting drink- infographic (quite possibly the first one) from 1974. It features intricate recipes for cocktails, build in the style of a blueprint. The drinks include a Rob Roy, Manhattan, grasshopper, whiskey sour and many more. The funniest part is that for some reason the creator is listed as the Forest Service from the Department of Agriculture. Made in 1974. You can download it from the National Archives Catalog,

  • UBER’s New Free Service Will Drive Home People Too Drunk to Drive

    Uber, the progressive car service app or evil taxi monopolizer, whichever way you look at it, launched an interesting service in Toronto called the ‘Uber Safe Breathalyzer’. The service will provide a ride home for individuals who exceed the legal limit for alcohol content. General manager of Uber Toronto, Ian Black, said, “We want to ensure a safe, reliable and affordable ride home is available to everybody, especially late at night when drunk driving is most common and can be avoided.” Though the idea seems good natured enough, the last thing we need is for patrons of major cities boozing up on purpose for a free ride home. A greater good idea, or PR stunt? You decide. With uber-power comes uber-responsibility.

  • Here’s Your First Look at Jared Leto as The Joker for Suicide Squad

    Yesterday we got our first look at the Suicide Squad courtesy of director, David Ayer, but the photo was missing the most important part of the puzzle, the Joker. We’ve all been dying to see how Ayer and Let portray the villain after Heath Ledger’s adaptation became a global sensation. Leto teased the world on Twitter yesterday paying homage to Alan Moore’s Batman comic classic The Killing Joke, in which the Joker is shown portrait, with a large camera covering half of his face. The only real attribute we can see thus far is Leto’s hair, a shorter look compared to Ledger’s long greasy locks. It looks like Leto is going for a more classic protrayl of the character, trying to diversify himself from the previous actors who created their own idently for the clown prince of crime. #WhereIsJared #SuicideSquad pic.twitter.com/D5tMnMGBop — David Ayer (@DavidAyerMovies) April 10, 2015

  • Classic Cartoons Recreated On An Etch-A-Sketch [13 Photos]

    The Etch-A-Sketch was a forgettable toy for many of us, with a fun factor just slightly above Wooly Willy. But while we uncreative types eschewed the Etch-A-Sketch for hours of staring at our Gameboy screens, more dedicated folks actually managed to master the two-knobbed device. Artist Ryan Burton is one such talented individual who is able to recreate classic cartoon characters, such as Beavis and Butthead and Ren and Stimpy, on the Etch-A-Sketch. You can even order custom works via his Instagram account. Just pray the mailman doesn’t shake the package too much.

  • 11 Astounding GIFS of Babe Ruth in Action

    The Sultan of Swat, The King of Crash, The Colossus of Clout, THE GREAT BAMBINO! George Herman Ruth, was arguably the greatest baseball player to ever walk the earth, and may have even been superhuman. The Baltimore, MD native was not only a stellar pitcher for the Boston Redsox, but as the story goes, went on to establish many MLB batting (and some pitching) records, including career home runs (714), slugging percentage (.690), runs batted in (RBIs) (2,213), bases on balls (2,062), and on-base plus slugging (OPS) (1.164), in fact his career slugging percentage and OPS records still stand today. Although video of the Babe is rare, Imgur has found 12 iconic motion GIFs of Ruth in his prime. Pure athleticism, all 260 lbs of it.

  • This Real-Life Batsuit Offers Protection From Stabbers

    Jackson Gordon is a 21-year-old industrial design student by day, but could very well be a superhero by night thanks to the awesome, real-life Batsuit he has created. Using impact absorbing foam, Kevlar, and 1/4″ Kydex plating, the suit offers protection from punches, blades, and clubs but not bullets. Yet. The project took about three months of prototyping and two months construction at a cost of $2000. Jackson plans on streamlining the process and selling the suits through his company Armatus Designs. Halloween this year is going to be a lot of fun.

  • Californians Can Conserve Water By Drinking More Beer

    As California’s devastating drought continues, residents are looking to conserve water any way they can. Although cutting back on complimentary water at restaurants and removing swimming pools helps, the majority of California’s water is used for agricultural purposes. In fact, creating foodstuffs accounts for an incredible 80% of the state’s water use. To illustrate just how much water is used to produce food and beverages for Californians, the Los Angeles Times created an incredible interactive guide where you can see how much water went into your meal. The most important fact we took away is that whereas some beverages such as milk and pineapple juice use over five gallons to produce each ounce of liquid, beer is a more eco-friendly choice at just two gallons per ounce. So if Californians want to do their part, they need to cut down on juices and milk and grab an Anchor Steam pint instead. For the environment! Check out the full interactive guide at the Los Angeles Times

  • The Whole Damn Farm Burger Is Like Noah’s Ark On A Bun

    When you’re trying to decided on lunch, do you find yourself overwhelmed when choosing which animal’s flesh to devour? Well good news for gluttons–Sam Longhurst, head chef of Manchester’s Splendid Kitchen, has created the Whole Damn Farm Burger comprised of chicken, beef, and pork. The 10-inch tall, 2,000 calorie uber-sandwich contains two beef patties, homemade bacon jam, chunks of ham, a whole fried chicken thigh, pulled pork, and four pieces of bacon on a brioche bun. The Whole Damn Farm Burger will set you back about $20, but the satisfaction of eating such an opulent burger is priceless…and short-lived due to the inevitable massive heart attack that follows.

  • The Barbershop Guide to Men’s Hair Trends of 2015

    A bun made of hair. Hate it or love it men’s grooming is taking an interesting turn. Last year the high and tight side part dominated barbershops across the country, but it seems the summer of 2015 will be an interesting one for the heads of stylish men across the country. Fades, mixed with mop tops, man-buns and undercuts will be among the many hair trends for men you better get used to. The undercut is simple, short on the sides long on top, a versatile style for any type of hair will be the undoubted king cut of the summer, while the man-bun will be popular, but also the most hated. The side part, however isn’t dead yet, a short cut with a little bit of mess pushed up is another cut being seen by celebrity hair ambassadors like Mr. Timberlake. Print This out, Show it to Your Barber.

  • An In-Depth Look At The Extreme Temperatures Of The Universe [Infographic]

    Gigantic numbers are commonplace when describing the universe, especially when it comes to temperatures, but for those of us who can barely grasp Celsius (0 is freezing, 20 is warm, and 100 is boiling? that’s just lazy), hearing about objects like the sun with a surface temp of 9000°F leaves us slack-jawed. And don’t even ask us simpletons about Kelvin (apparently it’s not just that mean goon with a bowl cut in my first grade class). Luckily, the BBC has put all these crazy temperatures into perspective with this handy infographic. Wait a sec…does that say decillion? Learning is hard.
