Chocolate Covered Bacon


These should be used
on the beer battered deep fried bacon double quarter pounder.

A quick search on the internet yielded little information, which raised some serious concerns on the safety of combining two such powerfully substances. Several questions came to mind; maybe bacon and chocolate aren’t supposed to be combined? Maybe combining them could start the apocalypse? With complete careless recklessness for ourselves and the rest of the planet we decided it had to be done.

I’ve carefully documented the procedure for making Chocolate Covered Bacon (CCB) to serve as record incase I was killed during the combining process.

North Pole Webcam


NOAA/PMEL’s North Pole web cam deployments began in April 2002. The web cams operate during the Summer warmth and daylight (April – October) and are redeployed each Spring. The images from the cameras track the North Pole snow cover, weather conditions and the status of PMEL’s North Pole instrumentation, which includes meteorological and ice sensors (seen in the camera images). The instruments typically contine to transmit data for months after the solar-powered web cams stop.

Beer Battered Deep Fried Bacon Double Quarter Pounder


Yes, it’s pretty gross. This started out as a dare from a friend on IRC, one I immediately said “OK!” to. It took a few weeks to work up the courage to try. First off, it was surprisingly tasty – everything was kind of nicely nutty, and if I’d had to eat 1/5th of one, that’d be just nice. Something like chocolate mud cake, a little goes a long way. I did eat the whole thing in the end though – it was the heaviest thing I’d ever munched on, and left me unable to each for a good 24 hours afterwards.

The Baby Mind Reader

The Museum of Hoaxes has a post up about a man named Derek Ogilive who claims to be a baby mind reader:

This week Channel Five in the UK will begin airing a documentary about Derek Ogilvie, a guy who claims to be a “Baby Mind Reader.” That’s right, he can read the minds of infants and tell desperate parents why their little darlings won’t sleep, or why they’re fussy about eating, or why they cry all the time, etc., etc. The Scotsman has a pretty sympathetic article about him, describing him as a “respected Scottish medium.” The Sunday Times, however, rakes him over the coals much more,

Surfing over to Mr. Ogilvie’s website you can read about the limitations of his powers:

Derek’s abilities though have some limitations. “I have noticed over the years that it’s easier for me to communicate with children who have not yet started talking or maybe just say the odd word. Children who are older and are talking fluently are much harder to connect with telepathically.”

HA! Sucks when the children learn to talk and can verbalize that the guy is full of bullshit. John Edward might have to relinquish his Biggest Douche of the Universe crown.
