Ramen is delicious. While I much prefer the taste of fresh-cooked noodles and meats at a Japanese restaurant, instant ramen will do in a pinch. Nissin Cup Noodles are a staple among college kids, bachelors, and lazy cooks everywhere.
I’ve never been a fly, so I don’t know what it’s like to be eaten by a carnivorous plant. Suffice it to say, I’m sure it’s rather unpleasant. Still, I’ve always been fascinated by these plants that can open and close to grab their lunch, and then digest them for nutrients.
Thanks in large part to the genius designs of the late H.R. Giger, the Alien universe is filled with some of the creepiest creatures and environments in the history of science fiction.

Bread was meant to be eaten, right? Well, what if your bread had four legs and was kind of adorable? Would you become gluten-free right then and there? I might think twice, but probably not. These wacky toys are based on the concept of “Living bread.”
Because what’s Halloween if not an opportunity for neighbors to question your taste and decency, this is the four-foot-long ‘Halloween Inflatable Outdoor Zombie Baby Blow Up Yard Decoration’ created by GOOSH and available on Amazon (affiliate link).
If you’re a PC enthusiast, you might have noticed that boutique manufacturers are actually making open-air chassis that are not meant to be test benches, but for showcase builds. Well, how’s this for an open-air chassis?
Because who doesn’t like pretending they’re a weekend paleontologist, purveyor of eccentric home and garden decor Design Toscano has created these giant dinosaur bone lawn sculptures. I can already imagine myself brushing some dirt off in front of guests and telling them I unearthed it this morning.
The Tail Company is running a successful Kickstarter campaign for its latest animatronic accessory, the miTail. This is their third animatronic tail, and as such comes with several major improvements, such as USB-C charging, a clip that makes the tail equally easy to attach and detach, and a no-phone mode, which lets the tail resort to random movements if you don’t have its companion app.
Because Japan takes its sushi and sashimi seriously, the Ma Corporation has developed the Katsugyo Bag, a clear cylindrical briefcase designed for transporting live fish that you caught or bought from the market to your home so you know you’re preparing a meal with the freshest fish possible.
When is a sandwich, not a sandwich? When it’s a shoe, of course. I mean, I’ve heard the expressions “I’ll eat my hat” and “Eat my shorts,” but never “Eat my shoes.” Still, I’m quite impressed with the food artistry on display here.
Are you one of those people who is cold no matter what? Perhaps you need some heated pajamas to keep you warm. The Damegi 4GW Heated Jumpsuit should do the trick.

Who doesn’t love Shiba Inu dogs? We have a couple of them living next door to us, and they’re the cutest. And then there’s the Doge internet meme, along with the DogeCoin cryptocurrency which it inspired.

Available from Chinese online retailer AliExpress, falling asleep with one of these ‘Very Long Pikachu Insect Plushes’ can almost guarantee a poor night’s sleep filled entirely with nightmares.
Apparently, because we don’t already have enough problem with scooters weaving in and out of traffic, scientists are working on a way for rats to drive around in miniature cars. Yes, these rodents can now literally join the rat race.
There are lots of different ways to tell the time. You can use an old school analog clock with hands, a segmented digital display, or even a sundial. But I can say with 100% certainty that this is the first clock I’ve ever seen that tells time with sequins.
