Imagine: It's 9 o'clock at night... you still have an hour of primetime TV, the local news, and a late night talk show or two... but you've run out of Oreos. Did I mention it's 9 O'CLOCK AT NIGHT? What will you do? Someday you may print your own Oreos. A 3D printer that shoots out flavored Oreos based on Twitter trends has become a hit at the South by Southwest music festival in Austin, Texas. The name of the exhibit is Oreo Trending Vending Lounge.

If you've ever tried to lose weight you've probably at least considered a cleanse. There's the Master Cleanse, Dr. Oz's 48-Hour Cleanse, the Colon Cleanse... and so many more. But my new favorite is the diet cleanse made entirely of ice cream. Yep, it turns out there's a vegan ice cream shop in Los Angeles that's offering a four-day, ice cream only-diet cleanse that's supposed to be good for you. For $240 (correct) Kippy's Ice Cream Shop will give you 20 pints of its coconut-cream based, raw, organic, non-dairy ice cream, in a variety of flavors. The cleanse works out to one pint per meal, five pints per day, for four days straight.
