Ben & Jerry's featured a beer-flavored ice cream in their recipe book, but now they're taking it a step further by partnering with New Belguim to create a beer that's flavored like ice cream. Specifically, their new flavor will mimick their Salted Caramel Blondie flavor and will be called Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale.
Of course, in yet another example of "this is why adults can't have nice things," some groups are already up in arms, claiming that the company is obviously marketing to children and showing them that beer is just one step away from children. I can't wait to hear what they say when B&J releases the marijuana-infused ice cream they're planning to sell in states where the drug has been legalized.
Do you want to know what’s keeping car industry execs awake at night right now? It’s not oil prices, it’s the convergence of open source and 3D printing technologies. Sure, right now the whole idea of DIY cars is a pipe dream, but look forward a decade or so and you can easily see a situation where car production goes completely local.
The new Tabby EVO is a prime example of how things could develop in [...]
Alright, ignore that this is a terrible ad from Samsung, a massive South Korean multinational conglomerate that also dabbles in surveillance and weapons technology, for a second and just BASK IN THE GENIUS. Mostly because it seems like one of those brilliant ideas that everyone should’ve thought of before but didn’t.
I’m participating in a show at the new Stranger Factory space along with amazing artists Stan Manoukian, Seymour, and Maryanna Hoggatt. The show, entitled ‘ODDysseys’ features a variety of colorful flora, fauna and even a fungi or two! I have new drawings, paintings and sculptures available. Opens this Friday, June 5th from 6-9pm with online sales starting Monday. See the full Preview Page for more information!
I’ll be posting additional pictures of the work up here eventually.. and hopefully starting on a much needed site overhaul soon!
This just in from the land of great sexism: two female scientists had a manuscript rejected by a peer-reviewed journal because they didn’t ask a man for help. An unnamed peer reviewer for the journal PLoS One suggested that Drs. Fiona Ingleby and Megan Head find male co-authors—any men at all—for a paper they’d written, in order to make sure they weren’t leaping to “ideologically biased assumptions.”
Let me just be absolutely clear and up front here: I love everything about this story. The old man, the wanton, gleeful destruction, that helmet, everything. It’s a simple story, too: Walter Thomas is 90 years old, and he always wanted to back through his garage door. Family and friends helped make his dream happen, and the world is a better place.

I cannot afford this.
For over four years, Dainese has been offering its airbag-equipped racing suit in Europe, but it’s never been available in the States. That changes this September, when the first batch of D-Air suits land in the U.S., and Dainese is taking it a step further, opening its airbag tech to other companies.
When it comes to ideas that feel good but fail when stupid old reality sets in, having solar panels on a road has to rank at the top if only for the enormous amount of public support. In Amsterdam, a company called SolaRoad (smart name, right?) doubled down and installed a solar bike path and ran it for six months. Here’s how it fared.

If your car has a proximity-based ignition fob that lets you start the engine without inserting a key, thieves on the street in front of your house can use an amp to detect its signal from your house and relay it to the car, getting away clean. Read the rest
“Make it cool or I’ll kill you.” That’s what director George Miller told Colin Gibson, the production designer responsible for all the cars in Mad Max: Fury Road. Gibson did one better: he made every single one of them functional, because the desert doesn’t suffer mechanical fools lightly and CGI is bullshit.
"People in SUVs brake for all sorts of things they don’t need to slow down for: Speed bumps. Curbs. Cyclists. Hyundais. It’s inexplicable."
Ahh, springtime. The wonderful season each year that brings us blooming flowers, and gorgeous sunshine, and warm temperatures, and potholes the size of cargo elevators.
Miracle of miracles, for the first time in I-don’t-know-how-long, I’ve got a full day with no meetings, conference calls, brainstorming sessions, chats, nuthin’! This means I can get some actual work done, and I’ve been chugging away at it since 7:30 this morning, something that’s relatively easy to do when you have a five-second commute:
The home office. Click to see it at full size.
A home office means that you can also crank the tunes, and I’ve found the Groovy Jazz Organ compilation to be productivity-boosting. Some kind soul has posted them on YouTube, and I’ve posted them here for your enjoyment, whether you’ve got your nose to the grindstone or in a martini glass.
You are driving a truck, pulling a trailer in which your friends are sitting. You’re barefoot, wearing headphones – the big ones from the ‘70s – and steering the vehicle with a “suicide knob” on the steering wheel. You pull a U-turn and a police officer who was following you pulls you over. Can you be ticketed for any of this?
I think Universal Serial Gus is my best name since Indie Rock Pete or Gary. Read on at iMore!
“As President and Commander-in-Chief, I take full responsibility for all our counterterrorism operations,” President Obama said at a press conference yesterday about killing an American and an Italian hostage in a US drone strike on Pakistan. What Obama failed to explain: Why the Central Intelligence Agency is allowed to carry out these drone strikes in secrecy.
I hate these fucking wristbands. Seriously, you expect me to sleep with that on?
