This new cafe in Toronto is the s**t! The Poop Café Dessert Bar is a brand new restaurant opening up in Toronto later this month. It is fantastically fecal. No really. Everything on the menu is brown and looks like human excrement.
Last August, the University of British Columbia (UBC) became the first location to have a semi-automated umbrella sharing service, thanks to a new company called UmbraCity. The photo below shows UmbraCity co-founders Amir Entezari (left) and Babak Asad beside one of their self-service kiosks.
If you built a robot that was complex enough to be able to talk with people and then left it on the side of the road, you might expect to never see the robot again. A professor and colleagues from Canada built just such a robot, called it hitchBOT, and dumped it on the side of the road near the Halifax airport.
Beer is one of the most popular adult beverages in the world. We might not all like our beer the same temperature, but few things make us happier than free beer. One Canadian beer company has set off with an interesting campaign that might make Canadians the most popular people on the block.
Detroit is working on a Robocop statue, so of course Edmonton, Canada wants their own statue now. Not just any statue, mind you. They want a 1,000 foot tall statue of Wolverine. If this keeps up we are going to have superhero statues everywhere.
Little known Star Trek fact. Spock finds human beer highly illogical and prefers his native Vulcan Ale. Now humans will get a chance to discover Spock’s favorite beverage. On May 1, Vulcan Ale, which is brewed as an Irish red ale, will hit store shelves.
If you want to make an amazing gingerbread house for the holidays this year, forget about making one that you might find in the woods. Make one that you would normally find in space, like this Millennium Falcon gingerbread house.
This is how the end of the world begins. The landscape is filled with thousands of these glowing invaders. You can shoot and shoot, picking them off one by one, but they just keep coming in wave after wave.
Redditor Perma aka Shane is one lucky bastard. Samsung Canada gave him the “only customized SIII in Canada”, featuring Shane’s own drawing of a dinosaur. How did this happen? Simple. He just asked for it.
How’d you like to plunk down $500 or more for a brand new iPad 2 to find out that you just bought yourself a box filled with clay? Apparently, at least ten customers were sold bogus boxes containing clay instead of iPads over the holidays from several Canadian electronic stores.
While the TSA and INS aren’t supposed to let you into the US without a real passport, that didn’t stop a Canadian man from using his iPad as a substitute for his passport, which he had forgotten at home.
There’s a new exhibition featuring some pretty interesting Star Wars stuff coming to Canada in 2012. It’s called Star Wars: Identities. You will apparently get to know the characters of the Star Wars saga “on a whole new level”.
I’ve always enjoyed airships. They’ve been featured prominently in Fringe, in the other universe. It’s a shame that there aren’t more around, but that might not be for long. Hybrid Air Vehicles will be making some futuristic giant blimps to supply remote communities in the Northern parts of Canada.
I want to believe that aliens live along these roads:
