Mmmmm, cardboard. 0

Via Yahoo! News:

“What’s in the recipe?” the reporter asks. “Six to four,” the man says.

“You mean 60 percent cardboard? What is the other 40 percent?” asks the reporter. “Fatty meat,” the man replies.

The bun maker and his assistants then give a demonstration on how the product is made.

Squares of cardboard picked from the ground are first soaked to a pulp in a plastic basin of caustic soda — a chemical base commonly used in manufacturing paper and soap — then chopped into tiny morsels with a cleaver. Fatty pork and powdered seasoning are stirred in.

A great snack any time of day. Thanks for the tip, China!

UPDATE 7/19 - This story has turned out to be a hoax.

A Note On Ads 0

I really don’t care about the $ from them [I have made less than $10 since I started using them 18 months ago], I’m actually just interested in what Google thinks the readers of this blog want to purchase. Same thing with the Tabey Town site, but for that one, the level of amusement is much higher. Watch a couple episodes, then try to square the ads with the content. Sometimes they work, other times, well…

Politically Incorrect Human Nature 0

Via Slashdot, an article from Psychology Today that portends to explain why most suicide bombers are Muslim, beautiful people have more daughters, humans are naturally polygamous, sexual harassment isn’t sexist, and blonds are more attractive.

Vocab word: fecundity

It has interesting conclusions. To me it looks to be of sound logic, but that still doesn’t quell the mental resistance we have socially installed to allow for ‘correctness’. The everlasting battle of feelings and the cold process of explanation.

Social Searching? 0

Found this whilst I was bounding around the internets:


From their about page:

“Are you tired of wading though thousands of irrelevant search results to get to the information you want? Ever wish you could narrow your search to sites you already know and trust? With Rollyo, you can easily create your own custom search engines – we call them Searchrolls – and explore, save, and personalize those created by others.”

Good? Bad? Pointless?

Personally I think it could have some great uses, but then again, I haven’t even used it. Maybe more on this later, or let me know what you find.

Mount Holly, MN. Population 4. 2

Via BoingBoing we find a man founding his own town.

The town paper:

Seems a bit like Tabey Town, only legal. [sorta?]

UPDATE 7/5 – From the comments, the Google link on BoingBoing’s page doesnt even go to MN, it goes to New Jersey. I didn’t even notice. Thanks B/P.
