Pizza is pretty much always a good thing, but what sort of super awesome, cheese-packed, dream come true is this? Canadian pizza chain Boston Pizza recently launched a new marketing campaign, entitled “Pizza Game Changers“, for which they are asking their customers to vote on what new items they’d most like to see on their summer menu.
Their promise is “If you like it, we will make it,” and the ideas currently on the virtual ballot include pizza mints, a gas-powered pizza cutter, pizza cheese clippers, the pizza pocket, pizza car fresheners, the pizza protector, the pizza beardkin, and the glorious pizza cake pictured here.
The six-layer pizza cake is currently in the lead, so we’re hopeful that this gloriously overindulgent pizza fantasy becomes a reality.
And here’s a handy GIF about tonight’s the lunar eclipse. For the west coasters (who have a better chance of seeing the eclipse through the clouds) just subtract 3 hours. It’s basically a moving version of this NASA graphic.
Software Accurately Predicts Faces As Babies Age Over Lifetime
Computer scientists can now predict how a person’s face ages from a baby to an older adult.
University of Washington researchers have developed software that automatically morphs a face through a lifetime of growing and changing no matter the lighting, expression or pose of the subject in the starting picture.
“Aging photos of very young children from a single photo is considered the most difficult of all scenarios, so we wanted to focus specifically on this very challenging case,” said study coauthor Ira Kemelmacher-Shlizerman, an assistant professor of computer science and engineering, in a university statement. “We took photos of children in completely unrestrained conditions and found that our method works remarkably well.”

The temperature of the liquid water is reduced below its freezing point, without becoming a solid. The ice wont form without the presence of a nucleation point (a crystal or impurity around which an ice crystal can begin to grow). However, on contact with another surface, the water instantly freezes. Check out how to make instant ice at home in this video: http://youtu.be/sBFK5-JvBAc
