Vosges Chocolate
Deep milk chocolate coats your mouth and leads to the crunch of smoked bacon pieces. Surprise your mouth with the smoked salt and sweet milk chocolate combination.

Sausage, Eggs or Perhaps a Sausage Egg!

Gross! I can't imagine ever eating this unless they added Bacon to the mix. Then I might think about it. Apparently these long eggs come from long chicken hens found in Texas. I hear everything is bigger in Texas. Aside from that I don't understand how they pass something like this out of their body! I'm perplexed and a little disturbed at these freaks of nature or science!

Nothing

What do you get that friend who has absolutely everything? Nothing. And though I think this is a good gag gift I think that you could come up with an idea on your own instead of paying for it

The Māori name for an otherwise unremarkable hill, 305 metres high, close to Porangahau, south of Waipukurau in southern Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. The name is often shortened to Taumata by the locals for ease of conversation.

Mustaches for Everyday of the Week

This kit is for the people out there that are like me...Mustache-less and very depressed about it. Not only do I not have a mustache, but I can't really grow one to save my life. Sure I can grow a few rat whiskers but that is almost more embarrassing than sharting. So until I hit puberty I am going to have to stick to this adhesive mustache set

Movie Poster for Sweeney Todd. I am very excited for this movie because it is my favorite duo back to make another amazing movie. Tim Burton and Johnny Depp have teamed up to make such classics and personal favorites as Edward Scissorhands, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Sleepy Hollow, Ed Wood and Corpse Bride. I know this movie will be another one to add to the list.

Bacon Burger Eating Challenge

Eagles Deli Resteraunt in Boston’s Cleveland Circle is a great place to pig out.....For a mere $50 (Boston Herald not included), you have one hour to devour the bacon cheeseburger skyscraper and landfill of fries. If completed, the burger gets named in your honor, plus $100. Then of course, bragging rights of Boston’s biggest chowdahead.

Sounds feasible until you see the actual burger. Not even John Candy could pound this burger down!

Storm Thorgerson: King of Album Covers

With Pink Floyd being my favorite band of all-time it is very fitting that my favorite artist of all-time is Storm Thorgerson. Storm Thorgerson designed Pink Floyds album covers as well as many other bands including Led Zepplin, Phish, Scorpions, Peter Gabriel, The Cranberries, The Mars Volta, Alan Parsons Project, The Catherine Wheel and more

Storm Thorgerson (born 1944 in Potters Bar, Hertfordshire) is an English graphic designer. He was a key member of the British graphic art group Hipgnosis, and designed many of their most famous single and album covers. Perhaps his most famous designs are those for Pink Floyd. His design for Dark Side of the Moon has been called one of the greatest album covers of all time. Many of his designs are notable for their surreal elements. He often places objects out of their traditional contexts, especially with vast spaces around them, to give them an awkward appearance while highlighting their beauty. To quote Thorgerson, "I like photography because it is a reality medium, unlike drawing which is unreal. I like to mess with reality...to bend reality. Some of my works beg the question of is it real or not?" Several books have been devoted to surveying Thorgerson's work over three-plus decades.

Taken from Wikipedia

Now that I have given you a brief bio of Storm Thorgerson, I would like to show you some of his greatest pieces of art (in my opinion)

Geek Trivia: Game within a (video) game

If one day you find yourself sitting down to pen that long-imagined bestselling science-fiction or fantasy novel and you’re looking for one particular trick that will give your speculative story a sense of reality (and lead to shameless marketing opportunities), just throw in a made-up card game or chess variant that everyone in your fake universe knows, enjoys, and plays with inhuman regularity. You don’t have to make up any actual rules for the game, as your devoted fan base (geeks) will retroactively conjure them based on the clues you drop in the prose — even if those clues don’t make any sense.

Don’t believe me? Then explain how it is that I can find “official” rules for fizzbin, a fictional card game that was fictional even in the Star Trek episode in which it originally appeared? The Trekkers among us will recall that fizzbin was a game made up on the spot by Captain Kirk to distract some gangster-inspired Iotians in the episode “A Piece of the Action,” with a set of rules that contradicted themselves even as the good Captain was explaining them. Nonetheless, Star Trek fanatics have gone so far as to conjure forth rules for fizzbin, and one can sometimes find them playing it at sci-fi conventions.

The same is true of the infamous Tri-D multilevel variant of chess, which Trek producers cobbled together from various 3D checkers and tic-tac-toe boards simply as a prop with no legitimate rules. Nonetheless, I can download rules and instructions for building my own fully functioning Tri-D chess game board. (Key point: The board has to be able to change configurations to be fully legal.)

I can also get rules (and cards) for the Star Wars gambling game sabacc — a game that allowed Han Solo to win the Millennium Falcon from Lando Calrissian. Heck, the TV show Firefly aired barely a dozen episodes during its 2002 run, and the draw poker-inspired game Tall Card appeared in exactly one of them, but I can download cards and rules to play Tall Card too.

Not all fictional games are just for show, however. One hacker-favorite made-up card game actually served a real-life purpose — it was an anti-piracy measure for a classic video game.

Did You Know: Chinese Restaurant Syndrome



Chinese Restaurant Syndrome is a disorder experienced by some people after eating Chinese food. It is characterized by headaches, thirst, tightness in the chest, palpitations, and numbness in the hands and neck. The syndrome has been attributed to monosodium glutamate (MSG) contained in highly flavoured foods and sauces (especially the soy sauce which is offered as an accompaniment to many Chinese meals). It is said that Vitamin B6 can help alleviate the symptoms of this odd disease.
