Candy canes, sugar cookies, fruit cake, pumpkin pie and egg nog -sounds like a great holiday party dessert table, but if you want to kick your party up a notch, then why not make those same great treats into Jell-O shots instead? Here are 10 great gellatin shots that I can't wait to make for our Neatorama Christmas party -of course, John will probably still run around getting everyone to try his bacon Jell-O shots.

The brilliant minds over at The Infinate Yums know just what to do to make cinnamon buns an even tastier breakfast treat -add crumbled, maple-covered bacon to the cinnamon filling and sprinkle more bacon over the top before cooking. Bad for you? Yes. Good for your taste buds? You bet.

According to legend, the Greek engineer Archimedes of Syracuse designed a pump that moved water up by using a screw inside a sealed shaft. The Evans lever-action rifle, designed by a dentist in Maine, uses the same mechanical principle. As the lever is cocked, the shaft inside the magazine built into the buttstock turns and feeds another round into the chamber. Why do you think this innovation never caught on?

Chef Alton Brown wrote up some trivia about the history of egg nog at mental-floss. Although we tend to think of it as a medieval European recipe, it owes a lot of its popularity to the New World.
But the best part is his personal recipe for homemade egg nog, plus tips for making it correctly. Follow it to the letter and you'll have nog with rum, cognac, and bourbon all together! Link

I won't lie to you guys, I am not a huge fan of guns. Not that I mind if other people have them, I just know if I owned one I would be the guy who shot himself in the foot or something of that nature. These guns however, I would not mind owning. I mean just the mechanical genius it took to put these things together is incredible. Not to mention the gold, pearls, diamonds, and all that.

Designer Olaf Breuning wanted to see his whimsical coffin designs brought to life, so he commissioned some coffin makers from Ghana to build the kooky corpse boxes for him, since the people of Ghana enjoy using eccentric coffins in their own funeral practices.
These melting popsicle, chocolate bar and snowman shaped coffins are strictly for decorative use only, but Olaf may consider taking one for a ride when he kicks the bucket!

For those of you who don't know- that's Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard. No, the audio isn't dubbed, she is actually talking about a doomsday apocalypse. She warns about the Mayans being right, zombies, and K-Pop. Pretty scary stuff Gillard.
Why is she doing this? She believes in the "End of the World" of course! Quick note, the "End of the World" is the name of a radio show which is set to air today in Australia. The hosts of the show, Tom and Alex, somehow coaxed Gillard into promoting the show.
Oh man, you got my hopes up... ..I can't be the only one who guiltily wants a zombie apocalypse, right? I mean sure there is the risk of being eaten alive, but I think beating zombie brains in looks like fun!

The Pantone Color Institute has announced the Color of the Year for 2013: Emerald 17-5641. The color on anything besides a gem doesn't really remind me of the gem, however. How about you?
I don't know, this shade doesn't appear to match anything I already have, which may be a clue to why it was selected. Fashion-conscious consumers will have to start all over and buy whole new sets of clothing, accessories, and household items. Link -via Gizmodo

Paper toys bring out the kid in all of us. They're something you can play with, yet are delicate and creative. Brave Face Paper has come out with a few paper kits to help with your own creations. There is a crab, a squid, and a dragon kit- the squid being my favorite. It's just so cute, in a weird squid-y way.

Army Air Corps pilot Emmett "Cyclone" Davis flew a mission on the day the U.S. was attacked at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941. He also flew a mission the day after the atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki in 1945. Davis, by then a lieutenant colonel, saw World War II in and out. Davis will be 94 years old next week.

The boll weevil (anthonomus grandis) is an insect. During the 1910s and 20s, it devastated cotton production in the American South. Nonetheless, in 1919, the town of Enterprise, Alabama built a monument to honor the boll weevil and what it did to benefit the South.
Why? Because the boll weevil forced people to change, adapt and grow:
What a marvelous attitude! No wonder the town is called "Enterprise."

James Tyrwhitt-Drake runs the mind-blowing blog Infinity Imagined, where you'll find visualizations of things great and small, patterns in nature and math, and the beauty of discovery. Tyrwhitt-Drake created a gif image with a scanning electron microscope of a zoom into a tiny crustacean that had a diatom on it. More zoom reveals a single bacterium on the diatom. Cosmic.
