Reddit has a new sub-category that allows anyone to post examples of first world anarchists from both the human as well as the animal world alike. Simply put, many of these are silly rules that may have been too strongly worded, or in the example above, someone who decided to eat an "After Eight" mint at 7:59.

Brothers Admir and Ibi Adili own the Valentino ice cream shop in Tisnom, on Croatia's Murter island. Admir's 15-year-old daughter Bibi spends quite a bit of time on the social network, so he decided to create a flavor commemorating it. The secret ingredient? There is no secret, as all he did was use plain bubblegum ice cream, add some blue syrup, and then slap "Facebook" on the flavor. So far, it's been a big hit with tourists this summer.

Believe it or not, back in the 1990s there was penguin named La La who used to shower, put on a backpack and waddle 329 steps to the local fish monger to buy his ration of five fish every day. He swallows a whole mackerel or two and then carries the rest home in his mini backpack. The story of La La begins in 1986 when Yukio Nishimoto discovered a penguin caught in his net with a badly injured beak and wing. The fisherman knew the penguin would die or be eaten by sharks and the rest is history. Continue reading for more.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first humans on the Moon, Americans Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, on July 20, 1969, at 20:18 UTC. Armstrong became the first to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on July 21 at 02:56 UTC.

You'd think cheating death once in a lifetime is a feat never to be repeated, but Dutch cyclist Maarten de Jonge managed to do it twice. He was supposed to fly on both MH370 and MH17, which was shot down over Ukraine on Thursday. The reasons? Well, in March, his cycling team was scheduled to take flight MH370 departing from Kuala Lumpur to compete in a race in Taiwan, but switched to another flight at the last minute to avoid having a stopover. Earlier this week, de Jonge planned to take flight MH17 to return to Kuala Lumpur from a recent race in the Netherlands, but changed his flight for a later one this weekend, yet again, at the last minute. Continue reading to see him cycling and for more information.

We have seen the future of ice cream, and it's probably going to come in all shapes, thanks to 3D printing. MIT students Kyle Hounsell, Kristine Bunker and David Donghyun Kim have created a prototype 3D printer that can make extremely soft serve ice cream in various shapes. According to the trio, "First, we needed to print into a cooled environment so that the ice cream would hold its shape once printed. We bought a small upright freezer which was large enough to both put the Solidoodle inside and allow for the full build volume we were aiming for." Continue reading for a video and more information.
