An Affordable Brew Your Own Beer Kit

3


Photo: Williams-Sonoma

As both a long time hobbyist and long time beer drinker, I have always considered making my own beer. So you can imagine my delight when I stumbled on this inexpensive Beer Making Kit, well my excitement was palpable. At only $39.95 I think it is quite a steal.

Kit includes: 1-gal. glass fermenting jug. Screw-cap stopper. 3-piece chambered air lock. Racking cane. 4' tubing. Tube clamp. 12" laboratory thermometer. Sanitizer packet. Ingredient mix.

There are also step-by-step instructions to guide you through the process. Sure there may be some additional equipment -pots and pans and stuff- that may be needed, but we're talking about brewing beer here. That is at least a 30 day commitment.

Have any of you guys ever brewed your own brew? Tell us about it in the comment section! I am very tempted to start it up myself, so your input may actually influence my decision.

Full Moon Credenza

2


Photo: Generate LE

Check out this decorated credenza called Full Moon. It has a photo realistic image of the moon that is coated with glow-in-the-dark eco-material. It looks stunning really. The availability is limited and pricing only upon request. While I would love one, I am going to guess it's a pretty penny for this thing, but one can dream.

A Fine Wine Infographic

Photo: Wine Folly

A fine wine is all that stands between you and turning a good Christmas feast and a great Christmas feast. All you need to do is pick the right kind. Thankfully the folks at Wine Folly have this handy-dandy infographic detailing a few different kinds of wine. Full image here. It organizes and categorizes almost 200 types of wine by taste.

My choice most likely for this year? We will be eating duck for dinner I believe, so a nice Pinot- an Oregon Pinot Noir is looking mighty interesting to me, but I am a red drinker. What catches your eye?

Bonus- The coolest way to open a bottle of Champagne.

Cthulhumas II

2


Photo: Liquidnight

Co-editor of Geyser of Awesome and Neatoramanaut Maika has created this beautiful and stunning Cthulhumas tree. You may remember we had another Cthulhu Christmas tree not too long ago, well that was Maika's creation from last year. Version 2.0 is a small but significant improvement in my opinion.

This year's Cthulhu Christmas tree consists of the same tree, blue string lights, silver garland, plush Cthulhu, and approximately 50 Cthulhu Tentacles that I used last year with the addition of smaller blue string lights, red string lights, roughly 35 Finger Tentacles, and two sets of Terrified B-Movie Victims desperately trying to escape the clutches of a thoroughly evil tree. To say nothing of the requisite eldritch chanting... Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn.

Bed In Breakfast

10


Photo: Nothing To Do With Arbroath

There are appropriate places for me to nap, then there are places I would let a puppy nap. The two lists, believe it or not, are comprised of completely different things. For a human, a bed and maybe a couch or comfy arm chair. For a puppy? Pretty much any gosh-darn place it pleases.

In my imagination he saw the food and starting eating, half way through he decided to take a nap and save the rest for later. So overcome with eating-exhaustion he snoozed on the spot, curling up on the delectable kibble.

Little Craig's List

Whatever your kids may have wished for, there are worse things they could have put on their list. Much worse things. As an avid Craig's List user, I can tell you there is definitely a strange assortment of crap on there. It can really be a whole other kind of strange- a deviant kind of strange.

Obama Plays with Spider-kid

Finally, something involving Spider-man that is actually amazing. Thanks to the White House Flickr page we get this gem. The picture was takin in the Outer Oval office on Oct. 26th. If the leader of the free world can have a little fun every once in a while, then I think it is high time for people around here to start enjoying my practical jokes. Taping the bottom of some unsuspecting coworkers mouse, rendering it unusable for the time being- now that's just good old fashion funny.

Remember the dad that trolled his little girl with the year book photo? If I was a parent of this kid, I would make sure he uses this picture in his yearbook for at least the next 4 years.

But What I Really Want...

Photo: Hi, I'm Liz

Merry Christmas to all, and to all an ipad mini with wifi. That's how it goes right? As you get older the things you want during the holiday season change. Sometimes that's good, sometimes that's bad , but most of the time that doesn't really mean anything what-so-ever- it's just a natural occurrence. Hears to hoping everyone is having a happy holiday, cheers!

Hobbit White Cake

5


Photo: Meemawof10

Oh the weather outside is frightful, but this hobbit cake looks so delightful. Mmm, Bag End looks delicious.

Created by Cake Central user Meemawof10, you can see there is a little Bilbo Baggins, a miniature Gandalf, and a pint-sized Thorin Oakenshield. I am willing to forgive Meemawof10 on making Gandalf white instead of grey if I can just have a piece. I love cake, especially niche themed cake. For some reason I think it just tastes better when it's decorated into a theme.

Crochet Dwarf Hat and Beard

Deviantartist SadDaysCrochet has created this nerdily awesome dwarven crochet hat-beard. I just want to wear it around all day, lounging in my long underwear and pajama pants. The real name of SadDaysCrochet is Susan Oldfield, and she has created some awesome things out of yarn. My favorite? This crochet Ultramarine, but the dwarf mask comes in a close second.

A Genuine Cat Burglar

5


Photo: Stian Alexander

A thief, a crook, a robber, a lifter, a pickpocket, a pilferer, a cat burglar. When a small neighborhood discovered that more than 20 sets of house and car keys had gone missing, where did they place their blame? Probably not on a neighborhood cat named Milo.

Milo, the culprit behind the disappearance of said pieces, had taken them all from the neighborhood homes of the Stoke Newington residents in north east London. Milo wears a magnetic collar around her neck so she can access the cat flap in her owner's home. Many of the homes in Stoke Newington have cat flaps. Kirsten Alexander, Milo's owner, had no idea that Milo had been sneaking into the homes of the neighbors while she was at work. It wasn't until Alexander saw Milo coming back through the cat flap one day, collar covered with a clutter of keys, that she realized what was going on.

"When I saw her coming through the cat flap with a set of keys round her neck I thought 'poor thing' because her neck was really weighed down, and then it dawned on me what was happening,” she said. "I've given all the keys back and luckily neighbours have seen the funny side of it."

Futuristic Baseball

Even with breakout star R.A. Dickey, the Mets were bad again this year. They have been mediocre at best for the better part of a decade, finishing under .500 seven times since 2002. That's not Pittsburgh Pirate bad, but that isn't great. As a lifelong Cubs fan, I feel their pain. All of that, however, doesn't mean that can't be good at Future Baseball.

Bicycle Santa

German bicycle designer Didi Senft is the builder of the world's largest bicycle and the largest mobile guitar, which was made out of bike parts. He likes bicycles. He is also known as "El Diablo" of the Tour de France because he always dresses up as a devil for the event.

This year, however, he put aside his devilish ways and dressed up as Santa Claus to premiere his new reindeer bike. It was for a Christmas-themed construction show in Storkow, Germany.

Burrito Bomber

1


Photo: Burrito Bomber

I have heard of these sorts of ideas for a while now, people using drones to deliver food, but now we finally get to see it in action! As you can see from the image above, a pretty rudimentary plan was put into place. Then again, this seems pretty ground breaking in terms of delivery food. Here is how it works.

You connect to the Burrito Bomber web-app and order a burrito. Your smartphone sends your current location to our server, which generates a waypoint file compatible with the drone's autopilot.

We upload the waypoint file to the drone and load your burrito in to our custom made Burrito Delivery Tube.

The drone flies to your location and releases the Burrito Delivery Tube. The burrito parachutes down to you, the drone flies itself home, and you enjoy your carne asada.

That's My Captain, Jean-Luc Picard

9


Photo: Twitter

If you don't recognize the names and faces then the two people involved here are Sir Patrick Stewart and LeVar Burton. Stewart and Burton both played lead characters on Stark Trek: The Next Generation. Stewart was Captain Jean-Luc Picard and Burton was Lt. Commander Geordi La Forge. If you still don't recognize them by now, well then you are a lost soul. Star Trek guy with a VISOR ring a bell?

In the image above you can see that Burton retweeting a picture of Stewart getting tangled in Christmas lights. It's good to see that the actors still have a friendly rapport and that there characters still mean something to them. Star Trek geeks, rejoice!

Christmas Calvin

10

Calvin is just too smart for his own good. Who else would go after Santa Claus for labor laws and tax breaks? Maybe it is because the US just had it's big election, but I think this may be the strategy a few politicians - regardless of country or party affiliation.

Seriously, Calvin and Hobbes has got to go down in history as one of the greatest comic strips of all time. Do you agree? What others would you guys suggest?

I won't lie to you guys, I am not a huge fan of guns. Not that I mind if other people have them, I just know if I owned one I would be the guy who shot himself in the foot or something of that nature. These guns however, I would not mind owning. I mean just the mechanical genius it took to put these things together is incredible. Not to mention the gold, pearls, diamonds, and all that.

I couldn't find confirmation, but I am pretty sure it is Christoph Waltz narrating the segment, and he is freaking awesome.  Aurel Bacs.

Australian PM Warns of Coming Apocalypse

1


Youtube Link

For those of you who don't know- that's Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. No, the audio isn't dubbed, she is actually talking about a doomsday apocalypse. She warns about the Mayans being right, zombies, and K-Pop. Pretty scary stuff Gillard.

Why is she doing this? She believes in the "End of the World" of course! Quick note, the "End of the World" is the name of a radio show which is set to air today in Australia. The hosts of the show, Tom and Alex, somehow coaxed Gillard into promoting the show.

Oh man, you got my hopes up... ..I can't be the only one who guiltily wants a zombie apocalypse, right? I mean sure there is the risk of being eaten alive, but I think beating zombie brains in looks like fun!

The Force is Strong: Yoda Tattoo

UV Tattoos have always seem pretty gimmicky to me, until now. Finally a use of the glow in the dark ink that actually makes sense! Done by tattoo artist Kennith Bryan of Intimate Body Art Studios. Really great work, I am sure Yoda would approve. In this case, this dedicated Star Wars fan is definitely doing and not trying.

Church Comprised of Half a Million Matchsticks

4


Photo: PIOTR STASIUK

While Wieslaw Laszkeiwick may use a whole lot of matchsticks, I bet he wouldn't appreciate you playing with fire anywhere near his creations. Here we have just one of the matchstick structures, a replica of the Church of St. Nicholas in Zamosc, that Laszkeiwisk has built in his workshop. A workshop that has has spent over 40 years creating these magnificent buildings.

This church is about 5 feet tall and is made up of almost half a million matchsticks. Not all matches are created equally however, and one match can make a huge difference.

“Not all the matches are suitable, it depends on the manufacturer,” he says. “Some of them cannot be polished, some cannot be formed. You have to know which one to use for forming, which one to use to be polished, which one can be carved – this kind of match has to be soft, has to be from a different kind of wood. Different wood structures meet in matches; you need to know how to sort them. Because if you don’t know your matches, you can use one wrong match and then not be able to polish the whole structure because one match is wrong.”

Just look at all the teddy bears! The Calgary Hitmen, a Canadian hockey team, hold a charity event for kids in need. Once a year people are invited to bring teddy bears to the stadium and throw them into the rink, this year they collected 25,000 teddy bears. It took nearly 45 minutes to clean them all up.
