Two engineering students from the University of Florida have come up with a solution to the problem of warm beer. A new Kickstarter project by Trevor Abbott and Ty Parker is seeking funding for a new invention that promises to chill a warm can of beer or soda in under a minute. Using a basic drill and a device called a Chill Bit, the unique spin-to-chill process uses convection to increase the rate of heat transfer, cooling the beverage on ice at least 20 times faster, or about 30 to 60 seconds for a can of beer or soda, according to the Spin Chill Kickstarter website
YouTube prankster Vitaly Zdorovetskiy, he of chasing people around Miami dressed as a Zombie and performing gross "tricks" to pick up girls fame, is upping the ante for Friday the 13th.

In the sure-to-be-viral video, VitalyzdTV, with fellow prank "artists" RomaAtWood and Dennis Roady, (H/T Gawker) don the signature mask of Friday the 13th's Jason Voorhees and chase unsuspecting bystanders with a real chainsaw (though he does note that it has no blades).
