1-27Social psychologist Erika D. Price has devised a system of ranking breakfast cereals, although she apparently doesn’t stand by it.

We don’t know what criteria was used to achieve the final results—but it doesn’t matter. The results are subjective. In fact, the list will likely receive instant rejection when people discover that Raisin Bran was placed in the mid tier and Cap’n Crunch didn’t event make it into the mix.

Oscar Lhermitte and Kudu are behind a wildly successful Kickstarter campaign to fund the creation of MOON, which is described as “the most accurate lunar globe”.

The globe dispenses with traditional 2D photographs or illustrations, and instead utilizes “NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter topographic data combined with electronic and mechanical engineering alongside careful craftsmanship in mold making”. The result is “a truly accurate 1/20 million (6.8″) scale replica of the Moon featuring all the craters, elevation and ridges in accurate 3D.”

It can even recreate lunar phases using a ring of LEDs that revolve around the globe.

MOON can be had for contributions beginning at $427. A larger 1/11.5 million scale globe (11.8″) is also available for $641. Shipping will reportedly begin in November.

4-2Cafe DALA 100%-CHOCOLATE in Busan, South Korea has taken food art to a whole new level with their giant chocolate dinosaur egg dessert.

The chocolate egg is positioned on top of a nest of shaved chocolate ice cream and contains a chocolate dinosaur sitting atop a chocolate ice cream yolk mound.

Chocolate, uh, finds a way.

Getting inside the egg can be accomplished via two methods: pouring warm chocolate syrup over it in order to melt the shell, or simply cracking it open with a silver mallet.

1Among the latest trends in the food world are sushi burgers, which isn’t surprising when you look at the marvelous concoction pictured above. Instagram can’t resist something like that.

The “burgers” use sushi rice as a stand in for a conventional bun with raw fish, fried soft-shell crab, fried chicken or a beef patty in-between. Toppings consist of avocado, spicy mayonnaise, pickled ginger and red cabbage.

Although a sushi burger is on the menu of Japanese fast food chain MOS Burger, several homemade variations have surfaced on the Internet, including the additional examples pictured on That’s Nerdalicious

1-4Artist Lingvistov has an obsession with coffee. So much so, that she created a series of illustrated quotes that fellow caffeine addicts are sure to relate to.

They also make it pretty clear that in many cases, the humble coffee bean is the difference between alert and productive workers and those who go through their day with a perpetually extended middle finger.

1-31In what could be one of the most ingenious advertising efforts ever, Kyrgyzstan-based I-Media has created concept packaging for Molocow milk that makes every bottle look like a UFO abducting a cow.

The company states that it used a common meme about alien cow abduction to re-imagine the bottle and packaging so it will appeal to children (and, we assume, everyone else on the planet—including those who are violently lactose intolerant).
