Watch: This rocket-powered birthday cake does the blowing and cutting for you

BoingBoing - 7 hours 31 min ago

Mike of the YouTube channel Useless Duck Company was fed up with birthday cakes for two reasons: 1) Blowing out candles splatters germs all over the cake, which is gross and unsanitary; 2) If it's your birthday, why should you have to work by cutting your own cake?

So Mike came up with a new invention that "fixes birthday cakes" – a birthday cake candle made with model rocket engines that blows itself out and cuts the cake so you don't have to. Brilliant!

Here's the longer version of the video that shows how he made his rocket-powered birthday cake: https://youtu.be/9CiKvuTPHvI

Refurbished Kindle Paperwhite for $80

BoingBoing - 7 hours 31 min ago

I do most of my reading on a Kindle Paperwhite. I'm currently reading the Penguin Classics translation of The Count of Monte Cristo (much better than the Project Gutenberg version I read years ago) and the Kindle's X-Ray feature, which lets me find out about the many characters and their relatives who pop in and out of the novel, helps me remember what the hell is going on. The Kindle is also a lot easier to hold than the 1200 page paperback version, which my daughter is reading.

The Paperwhite rarely needs recharging, even when the backlight. Unlike a phone or tablet, there's no glare, making it the best way to read outdoors. I have at least a hundred books on it, and haven't gotten a "memory almost full" warning (text doesn't use a lot of storage, like audiobooks do). If I don't have my reading glasses, I can make the text as large as I need to. At $80 for a refurbished model, it's a good deal.
