The ultimate pancake, made 4 ways

There are precious few foods that slip easily under a door. Lettuce leaves come to mind, along with matzo and veal scaloppine. But as tempting as a kosher veal and salad sandwich sounds, it will never replace my favorite from the flat food group: pancakes.

Beautiful views of Wichita as seen by a drone

Wichitan Tyler Engle and a friend shot some footage with a drone last week and that night made a quick video for his Facebook page. The next morning, he was at the 1 Million Cups gathering with his phone off. "When I finally looked at my phone it was blowing up. The number of views looked like the seconds on a timer: 1,000, 2,000, 3,000." As of today, it has just over 160,000 views. His best guess on why? People living here are sending it to friends and relatives to prove how beautiful the city really is. (video by Tyler Engle)

Game review: Discover new classes in 'Bravely Second: End Layer'

"Bravely Default" was a "Final Fantasy" game that wasn't. It took many of the classic themes of the series - job classes, airships, even specific item and spell names - and updated them for the modern handheld era. It was a satifying answer on how to make a Final-Fantasy-styled game competitive in today's mobile market. "Bravely Second: End Layer" continues that core philosophy, but one of its sole differentiators from the "Final Fantasy" series proves to be its only real shortcoming. This is an actual sequel, and with that comes some baggage.

Your kid's prom just got even more expensive

American parents are accustomed to being treated like human cash machines during prom season, spending close to $1,000 to guarantee that a high school dance doesn't become an emotional catastrophe. A hundred bucks for tickets, and hundreds more for fancy clothes - even the corsage costs $20. And before any of that begins, your kid wants $300 for a promposal. Wait, a what?
