by Patrick Redford on Deadspin, shared by Alex Cranz to Gizmodo

If you’re gonna try to roast the Spelling Bee for being soft, the worst sin you can commit is bringing that weak shit (noun: substandard effort or soft response, e.g. “Kevin liked the Warriors, but they lost because they brought that weak shit.”).

A Unique Restaurant Where Orders Arrive Directly to the Table Via a Looping Miniature Rollercoaster

by Lori Dorn

Roller Coaster Restaurant

The Rollercoaster Restaurant at the Alton Towers Theme Park in Staffordshire, England opened on May 13, 2016 and has garnered a great deal of attention for its unique food delivery service. The dining process begins when the customer orders their meal on a tablet. The meal is then prepared, put in sealed metal containers and sent directly to the table via a looping overhead 400m track. Reservations can be made online.

The new Rollercoaster Restaurant is set below a vast rollercoaster track where diners can watch as their order tackles two gravity defying loop-the-loops before dropping 8 metres down the tornado spiral to their table. Each diner will enjoy a full 360 dining experience at one of the 13 tables and will get to select from the brand new menu of family favourites…The Rollercoaster Restaurant in Alton Towers is the first Rollercoaster Restaurant in the UK. It has about 163 seats and located in England’s largest theme park.

LICKI Brush, A Tongue-Shaped Silicon Brush That Lets Humans Lick Their Cats

by Lori Dorn

The makers of the interactive SHRU cat toy are currently raising funds through Kickstarter for their newest creation, the LICKI Brush. A novel silicon brush made in the shape of an oversized cat tongue, the LICKI Brush requires the participating human to grab onto the bite plate with their teeth and make licking motions with the brush onto their unsuspecting cat.

LICKI is a high-quality, soft silicone brush, designed to feel pleasurable to your cat’s sensitive skin. Gently grasp LICKI’s bite portion with your teeth, slowly approach your cat when she is sleeping or in an otherwise pleasant mood, and ease into the soothing and mutually beneficial licking behavior of cats. Don’t be surprised if your cat licks you back.

11 Daring Design Gambles that Definitely Paid Off

by Nancy Mitchell

When it comes to design, restraint and moderation are generally considered to be good guiding principles. It's easy to get carried away and wind up with something that, in its exuberance, is completely stress-inducing and out of control. But every once in a while a daring or completely out-there design move is just the right thing — proof that rules are made to be broken.

What Is the Limit to How Far We Can Travel in Space?

by Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Mario Aguilar to Gizmodo


What Is the Limit to How Far We Can Travel in Space?

Bad news, guys. There’s a limit to humanity. Even if we had the technology for interstellar space travel, we still wouldn’t be able to see most of the observable universe because we’re actually limited to only being able to go to a hundredth billionth of a percent of it. We’re stuck within our local galaxy group. That’s sort of depressing! But why is there a limit anyway? Kurzgesagt explains how it has to do with dark energy, and the nature of nothing, and how only so many things in the universe are gravitationally bound to us.
