Skaters Build a Railroad Riding Half-Pipe & Rowboat Ramp in the Latest Film From Zenga Bros.

You might recall the Zenga Bros. from their energy charged, nostalgia inducing film Ski Boys (and if you haven’t seen it yet, I’m envious). Now they’re back with a new short that’s equally enthralling. They worked with a load of skaters to create imaginatively artistic mobile skate ramps like you’ve never seen before. One is a railroad-traveling half-pipe with a conductors cabin on either end. Just roll it down the rails for a different view.

Dresses Made from Crayola Crayons for Bloomingdales NYC

Crayons might be used for sketching dress ideas, but they’ve probably never been used to actually make dresses. Bloomingdale’s recently worked with six popular fashion designers who had created pieces for the 100% Bloomingdale’s Spring campaign. For this project however, they were given lots of Crayola crayons to create a fashionable statement for the window display at the iconic Bloomingdale’s store on 59th Street in Manhattan. In total, the designers used about 18,000 crayons to complete the work. Color us impressed!

Weed is Super Safe, and This Chart Proves It.

Washington D.C. voted to legalize marijuana last November by a landslide, with that Initiative taking effect today. While the nation’s capital won’t be the next Amsterdam, it does raise questions in the continuing debate about marijuana safety. Just how safe is smoking weed?

Ask any recreational or medical marijuana user and they’ll quickly tell you that the drug is safe (and a LOT of scientific research backs that up), but recent research is suggesting it might be even safer than we’ve thought. In findings published in the journal Scientific Reports (a research publication from Nature), researchers worked to quantify the risk of death associated with commonly used drugs when used in typical fashion.

I’ve never met a pancake I didn’t like. Ever since Mickey Mouse ear pancakes at Disney Land, pancake shapes have thoroughly impressed me.

That’s why this new invention by Norway-based food enthusiast Miguel Valenzuela gets my heart pumping. This man created a pancake printer for his daughters and although it’s not for sale yet, the future is looking tastier already.
