  • Field Skillet: “Lighter, Smoother Cast Iron”

    Field Skillet: “Lighter, Smoother Cast Iron”

    Cast iron is a good and sturdy material for things like pots and pans that need to endure a lot of physical distress over the course of their service. But its durability and versatility come with a drawback: Its weight. Now, the people at Field Company have developed a process by which a cast iron […]

  • The Stone Cup: “The Most Refined Drinking Experience of All Time”

    The Stone Cup: “The Most Refined Drinking Experience of All Time”

    Drinking out of a cup made from stone might sound like something out of The Flintstones at first. But the makers of The Stone Cup are extremely adamant that their masterpiece is anything but primitive, describing it on Kickstarter as “the most refined drinking experience of all time,” among other things. The Stone Cup is […]

  • biēm Butter Sprayer: Turn Butter Into a Delicious Spray

    biēm Butter Sprayer: Turn Butter Into a Delicious Spray

    Liquid butter is great on popcorn at the movies, but there isn’t often a good way to use it practically in the home (to be honest, that may not be the worst thing in the world, at least from a nutritional standpoint). But now you can, with the unfortunately-pronounced biēm Butter Sprayer invented by Doug […]

  • Bernie Weisse: Beer Inspired by Bernie Sanders

    Bernie Weisse: Beer Inspired by Bernie Sanders

    Bernie Sanders is a surprisingly popular dude these days, given his self-proclaimed “democratic socialist” leanings and his cranky, abrasive persona. Which is why it’s only appropriate that a beer has now been named after him, and that it’s billed as being “slightly sour and forward-thinking,” just like our boy Bernie. It’s Bernie Weisse from the […]

  • Soylent: Modular Nutritional Drinks and Powders

    Soylent: Modular Nutritional Drinks and Powders

    The young entrepreneurs of today are sometimes accused of not understanding anything about history or the world, just bounding through market tests and focus groups without any regard for good taste and decorum. I bring it up because there’s now a line of “modular” nutritional protein drinks and powders that goes by the fully-loaded brand […]

  • Arby’s Leap Day Vegetarian Menu Revealed

    Arby’s Leap Day Vegetarian Menu Revealed

    I don’t imagine vegetarians spend much time at Arby’s.  After all, the name of the restaurant comes from the initials for “roast beef,” and even most meat-eaters would probably be hard-pressed to argue for large portions of Arby’s roast beef sandwiches in one’s diet. But this February 29th, vegetarian visitors to the restaurant will be […]

  • Stillhouse Original Moonshine

    Stillhouse Original Moonshine

    Moonshine is largely thought of as a “worst case scenario” kind of alcohol, when your main priority is not flavor or a pleasant buzz but getting as drunk as possible as quickly as possible. But even though you’re not in prison or living under prohibition doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy some 100% clear moonshine whiskey […]

    “Billionaire’s Margarita” at NYC’s London Hotel Costs $1,200

    At the London Hotel in New York City, the very rich (or the very financially irresponsible) have a new menu item to use to make everyone around them envious of their massive wealth (or, again, financial irresponsibility): The Billionaire’s Margarita, priced at a healthy $1,200 a pop. What’s in a Billionaire’s Margarita? The main ingredient […]

  • Beer Hot Tub Developed by Starkenberger Brewery (Video)

    Beer Hot Tub Developed by Starkenberger Brewery (Video)

    When I was a kid I used to imagine living in a Scrooge McDuck mansion with a swimming pool filled with gold coins, but with some additional pools also filled with stuff like snow, sand, plastic balls (like at McDonald’s), etc. What I didn’t imagine was a pool full of beer, but the people at […]
