Solving the Rubik’s Cube While Skydiving

I am still at the point where it takes me multiple sessions (and notes) to solve a Rubik’ Cube. Throw me out of a plane and tell me that my shoot won’t open unless I solve the cube, will most certainly mean that I will be dead. So maybe I need to start practicing like these guys…these insane guys…

Retro 80s Cakes

Last month, ran a post featuring several radical retro-inspired cakes. Here were three of my favorites:


Although you should not feed a Mogwai after midnight, I believe you are free to eat them any time of day or night.


I’m not sure what bugs me more; the fact that the Rubik’s Cube is unsolved, or the fact that one of the six sides is apparently pink. Still, a definite A for Effort here.


The sign of a truly awesome arcade-inspired cake? The fact that I can’t decide if I’d rather eat it or play it! I wish there were something else in this photo so I could gauge the scale of this cake, but regardless of size, whoever received this cake was one lucky adventurer!
