Did you know there’s a thing called selfie toast? It sounds absurd, but the Internet was in uproar last week over the possibility of getting bread toasted with the eater’s own image. The amusing gimmick comes from Vermont Novelty Toaster Corp., a company that earlier had success marketing toasters that allowed users to brand their bread with images of Jesus.
Basically, you send the company a high-res image of your face, they perform some modifications, and then use a fancy machine called a CNC Plasma Cutter, a computer-guided metal cutting machine that makes special plates that get inserted into a toaster. “It’s a lot like silk screen, but you’re using heat for the ink and bread as the t-shirt,” CEO Galen Dively told Mashable. The novelty toasters cost $75.
Number of Vine followers: 1.3 million

It took Kanye West and Kim Kardashian four days to edit their wedding kiss photo, the most “liked” image in the history of Instagram. It took us about two minutes and thirty seconds using our Collage Builder to slap the famous photo on a pillow. Kanye says the editing took so long because their first-choice photographer, Annie Leibovitz, pulled out at the last second, forcing the couple to spend their honeymoon tweaking the photo and adjusting the color of the flowers. If Instagram is any measure, it looks as if their hard work paid off. What do you think?
Have you seen the viral video of the Pallas cat–a cute but deceptively ferocious feline that lives in Central Asia–discovering that it’s being watched by a camera outside of its den? It’s a remarkable meeting of nature and technology.
Have you tried butter coffee? It’s supposed to help with energy and focus. It apparently gives you a buzz that lasts six hours, but without the acidity of normal coffee. It can also apparently help some people lose weight. The new craze comes from the mind of Silicon Valley entrepreneur Dave Asprey, a business self-help guru, who became an advocate for buttered coffee after drinking tea that was mixed with Yak fat while hiking in Tibet. Asprey felt “rejuvenated” by the drink–he ended up climbing a tall mountain–and went on to market Bulletproof Coffee, a brand that blends coffee with butter and “MCT oil,” which is found in coconuts. Is Asprey starting another silly health craze, or has he actually managed to build a better coffee? You can read more info on butter coffee here.
