I've been doing some recipe research lately, and I stumbled across this and this. No more paying exorbitant amounts of money for these myself... think I'll save these, some wine, and some Godiva cocoa for Bitter Singles Day.

This amused me. It's in a long line of imitations that includes candy sushi and sushi pillows.

This will scar you. Or it should. If it doesn't, you've probably been surfing the Internet too long. (Like me. I haven't seen anything that's made me more than blink in ages.)

And finally, whilst surfing Metafilter, I came across this little gem. I knew that Muslim scholars built things like astrolabes and elaborate canal systems (qanats and an anbars being the first things that come to mind), but not that they'd gotten into clockwork.
