caffeine-video

Have you ever wondered why coffee has the ability to both keep us awake, and make us feel less stabby in the morning?

Your Brain on Coffee, brought to us by AsapScience, explains what caffeine is actually doing to our mind grapes. Most importantly, we discover what not only makes us crave caffeine, but why we eventually need more and more to remain functional.

The best part… AsapScience also explains why it’s physically impossible to overdose on caffeine. So, throw back all the mocha-choca lattes you’d like, and have fun trying to sleep this week.

Bacon Bloody Mary Popsicles With Bacon Sticks Because You Deserve It

bloody-mary-popsicle

Why should kids have all the fun, with their little frozen treats on a stick? Well, they can keep their Creamsicles and Bomb Pops, because Bacon Bloody Mary Popsicles are now available for the adults.

Brought to us by our friends at Thrillist, the popsicles are made by infusing vodka with bacon for Bloody Marys, then making boozicles. The best part, and to make sure that we reach our bacon quotient, the popsicles are impaled onto breadsticks wrapped in candied bacon. Take that, Bomb Pop.

Have a few of the popsicles handy, the next time you wake up hungover and warm. See the full recipe and ingredient list here.

Famous People and Pop Culture Characters Made From Peanuts

Steve Casino is a ‘painter of nuts.’ And, rather than squandering his talent on walnut landscapes or abstract cashews, Casino puts it to use creating celebrity peanuts.

Casino hand-paints anyone from Jimi Hendrix, Bruce Lee, and Hulk… recreating the subject’s likeness to perfection, while adding equally disproportionate limbs. So much better then tacky walnuts.

Pizza With A French Fries Crust Exists

pizza-french-fry-crust

French fries… They complement our bacon cheeseburgers perfectly and act as a suitable platform for gravy and cheese. Now, french fries have been given the greatest responsibility ever bestowed on a food item… to provide a crunchy base for our pizza.

The French Fries Crust Pizza is brought to us by Foodinese, and is made possible by fusing fries together with mozzarella as glue, and then adding toppings. Might we suggest a bacon cheeseburger or gravy and cheese pizza?
