Somehow I have lived the past few years without having ever heard of Food Replicator, a Star Trek-themed food blog. Especially noteworthy is the author's attention to the delicacies of Ferenginar, such as jellied gree-worms. Yummy!
Above you can see a gingerbread version of the standard Starfleet communicators used during the original series. Here's how the author made it:

When Kidogo got homesick, zookeepers decided that the 12-year-old gorilla needed a hobby. But what they didn't know was how the gorilla would become quite the tightrope artist. Just look at that form on the slackline!

Let's help kiss 2012 goodbye with io9's look back at the year's best cosplay, where sexy, creative and downright creepy collide in costumed craziness you won't be able to unsee.
It's pure chaos in homemade costumes, and even though we've shown a few of the entries here already they're definitely worth a second look!

The New York Times sat down with the owners of three Manhattan Italian restaurants to discuss the correct way to eat pasta. They mostly agreed on a few rules: you don't put cheese on a seafood-based dish, you don't break pasta before cooking it, and you don't eat spaghetti with a spoon.
Does anyone really ever eat spaghetti with a spoon? The article begins with 1975 advice from Elizabeth Post recommending it, but I'd never heard that before. How you do eat spaghetti? Link -via reddit

This contraption is a Steenbeck flatbed editor, used to edit motion picture film before it all went digital. The process was unwieldy compared to modern computer editing, but the old methods gave us a hundred years of art.
I can't speak to film editing, but as far as sound editing and writing go, I can say that learning it the old-fashioned way first gives a person a great respect for the individual elements of the art. It also helps one to appreciate the ease of more modern methods! Gizmodo has more, including a video of editing film by splicing. Link

Before chocolate candy was developed, cocoa was almost always a drink. And far before chocolate milk became a kid's staple, cacao was a manly beverage, reserved for warriors.
As chocolate was carried around the world, it was changed considerably, but still made into a manly beverage as nutritious sustenance for Arctic explorers and soldiers at war. The Art of Manliness has an extensive history of hot cocoa and its use, including tips for making yours better. Link

You learn something every day and today is no exception. Today I learned the definition of bathymetry, the study of underwater depth and topography. Below the Boat is a website and a company that makes these beautiful bathymetric charts, as seen above.
The charts are laser-cut into sheets of Baltic birch with hand colored detail. They also have a ton of maps too, from the East Coast to the Midwest and to even the West Coast regions. I particularly like this map of Lake Michigan- a lake I have spent a good deal of my life on, in, and around.

See images from cities all over the world at his website, as well as other projects using the long exposure technique. Link -via Nag on the Lake
