Question of the Day

What would your last meal be?

Filet Mignon, medium rare, wrapped in bacon with extra bernaise sauce, twin lobsters (lazy man style please, cracking them is too much work and wastes precious calories) with a bucket of melted butter, garlic mashed potatoes with no vegetables or leafy food anywhere in sight. A cola with plenty of ice of the Coca Cola classic vintage please and warm gooey freshly baked tollhouse cookies with an ice cold glass of milk to wash it down.

Hey, it’s lunch time!

18 Delicious Rodents and How To Cook Them

From Now That’s Nifty:

Rodents, one of several kinds of vertebrates included in the human diet, are very suitable as human food. More than 71 genera and 89 species of rodents, mostly hystricomorphs, have been consumed by man. Some have even been domesticated for private or commercial production of food for human consumption. Rodents in the temperate world serve only as a supplement to the regular diet of humans; but in the tropical world, they are widely accepted and a popular source of protein. Although harvesting field rats for human food is beneficial, it is not an effective pest control strategy. Consuming rodents in pesticide-treated areas and handling rodents with potential zoonoses are two possible risks.

Goths in Hot Weather

A blog dedicated to, well:

Goths, I love ’em! I even used to be one for a bit (well, I was a Didi-Goth for at least 6 months). But there’s one thing that troubles me about our cheery friends: what to do they do in summer? All that makeup, long black leather and rubber must get very sticky. I think we should show our respect for these poor unfortunates, struggling to stand out from the vanilla crowd despite blazing temperatures and sunshine that puts the rest of us in shorts and vest tops. Join me in celebrating the majesty of the Goth, who, eschewing any practicality whatever, still has the commitment to don a full length leather trenchcoat, stupid New Rock boots, and half a Superdrug counter of makeup. All hail the Hot Goth!
