Space-Themed Birthday Cake Reveals An Entire Universe When Sliced

Imgur user Pedagiggle created this multi-layered space birthday cake for her 4-year-old son, Ilyas, that’s as (inter)stellar inside as it on the outside. The exterior of the tall treat features hand-painted planets among the cosmos, while a rocket ship blasts off the top of the cake. If that’s not special enough, once you cut into it, a whole solar system is revealed—including Earth, Mars, and the mesmerizing swirl of the Milky Way.

Ukrainian Mum Reveals Her Quintuplets In Heart-Warming Photo Series

37-year-old Oksana Kobeletskaya from Odessa had surprised Ukraine by giving birth to 5 babies on July 24th, 2016 in city maternity centre. A birth of quintuplets is believed to be a unique case for Ukraine. After an easy pregnancy she successfully delivered two girls and three boys via c-section.

More info: Instagram, Facebook

She and her husband discovered the surprising fact during the first ultrasound check. The pair has one child already, a 3-year-old daughter. Thus, now they are parents of 6 kids.

Ukrainian couple had given names to their babies the same day they were born: Aleksandra, Dariya, Denis, Vladislav and David. Happy parents were presented with a 5 bedroom apartment from Odessa city officials after they welcomed their five new arrivals. Proud parents to five new born babies have shared heart-warming photos of the quintuplets for the first time.

“Denis, Vlad, David, Sasha and Dasha pleasantly surprised us, because in their 2 months it was easier to work with them than we expected – kids slept sweetly, and we have created a wonderful story of love and friendship, which, I am sure began in a mother’s tummy for them and their parents “- photographer Julia Guseva shared her emotions on Instagram.

Cool Data Visualization Inadvertently Reveals “America’s Secret Weapon”

Here’s a wicked data visualization showing America absorbing a certain something from 1820 to 2013:

Created by data analyst Max Galka at Metrocosm, each dot represents 10,000 people. To be clear, these depict documented instances of folks legally gaining permanent resident status; the results of both the slave trade and illegal immigration are not represented here.

If you watched the visualization without reading an explanation of what you were seeing, it would appear ominous—like all of the countries in the world firing multicolored missiles at Kansas City. But while it might look like other countries attacking America, in fact this represents what Dr. Michio Kaku famously referred to as “America’s Secret Weapon:”

Alternatively, if you viewed the visualization after watching last night’s Warriors game, it looks like a representation of Steph Curry hitting three-point shots in overtime.

Heat-Changing Mug Reveals The Aurora Borealis When Filled With A Hot Drink

1

You might not live near the aurora borealis, but you can now experience it every time you have a cup of coffee. ThinkGeek has created a special heat-changing mug that reveals the glorious sight of the Northern Lights, when it’s filled with hot liquid. Left unheated, it simply displays a stunningly desolate landscape at the base of its handle.

“Much as caffeine particles pass into our bloodstream and make us bounce off walls, so, too, the particles from solar winds pass through the Earth’s magnetosphere near the poles and share energy, causing a spectacular display in the upper atmosphere. When these particles collide with oxygen in particular at lower altitudes (up to 150 miles), the photon released appears green or yellow, giving a similar light show as to the one captured on this mug when you fill it with warm liquid.”

Airbus Patent Illustrator Reveals Terrifyingly Poor Grasp of Human Proportions

Sorry for the jokesy headline, but is there anything funnier than rendering children by simply shrinking down adults? In U.S. Patent # US20160039387, Airbus reveals the following design with that classic patent-drawing attention to human anatomy:

While the drawing above appears to represent two ventriloquists who have brought their professional gear on as carry-on luggage, Airbus’ design for a “Re-Configurable Passenger Bench Seat” is a little more complicated than that. It’s meant to address the fact that the current one-size-fits-all airplane seat design, which is reportedly based on human dimensions from the year 1962, is no longer suitable for the wide range of sizes humans now come in. So let’s have a look at the seat:

As you can see, panel 60b folds down to reveal cavity 62a, which I assumed would contain a gloriously backlit bottle of Cuervo. But looking at the next drawing tells a different tale:

Panel 60b is in fact a giant-sized armrest. This, along with the width of the bench, means that one large man who favors V-necks can comfortably sit alongside another large man who favors crewnecks, and they can hold hands to confer mutual reassurance in times of turbulence.

In the next drawing, we see another configuration, whereby panels 60c are folded down:

You’ve undoubtedly noticed the appearance of an extra seatbelt in the image above, which allows what you see in the image below:

Now a tall man who favors V-necks can sit flanked by two shorter men who belong to Team Crewneck. While the armrests are now too narrow to support handholding, it does appear that a provision has been made whereby the passenger on the left can place his hand within the pants pocket of the passenger in the center.

Finally, if we add yet another seatbelt…

…two grossly misshapen adults can now sit alongside two children who resemble action figures:

And if you’re wondering how the seatbelts are added and subtracted, concealed between the cushions is a rail system with detachable fixtures:

It appears that the bench would need to have its seatbelt configured prior to each flight, and in accordance with the width of specific passengers. This could provide a wonderful opportunity for interaction during the boarding process, as cheerful flight attendants smilingly measure the width of each happy passenger. Furthermore, the pilot could order the co-pilot into the cabin to configure all of the seatbelts, in order for the former to clearly establish dominance over the latter.

I know, I know, it’s just a patent and there’s little chance we’ll see this design realized. But we can dream, can’t we?
