CAN WE CALL YOU TWINKLE TOES?

We’d always been struck by the fact that so much time has passed since the light left the twinkling stars we see at night that many of them may no longer be in existence by the time the light reaches us. But with the new Cosmos, Neil DeGrasse Tyson changed how we look up into the sky. Every time we look up now, we imagine we’re traveling back in time. It makes the stars less bittersweet.

Stars on your feet? Totally sweet. These navy blue slide slippers feature familiar constellations and asterisms. The soles are padded. We think they’re perfect for that backyard “camping trip” to gaze at the stars. (And run back inside when you need to pee.)

Minecraft Light-Up Enchanted Apple

Consider yourself lucky that you don’t have to craft an Enchanted Apple yourself. It used to take 648 Gold Nuggets just to make one of these, but now you just have to be fortunate enough to come across one. That’s a lot of patience for Absorption IV, Regeneration II, Resistance, and a Fire Resistance buff. But it’s worth it for the ability to take a stroll through some lava.
