With summer in full swing, and people like me already bitching about heat (I'm very sensitive), some crazy researchers decided it was time to break the record for the all-time hottest temperature ever recorded on earth. What was the new temperature they managed to bag? 7.2 trillion degrees Fahrenheit. You would have known that if you read the title silly.
The other day, my daughter and my husband were watching Mythbusters while I was working, and the boys—the guy with the funky beard and the guy with the annoying beret—were about to conduct an experiment on a dog. They were going to test the urban legend about a dog in a microwave and they used a variety of different experiment materials. My daughter turned to me and matter-of-factly inquired, “Are they going to kill a dog?”
What a question! She just assumed that these two men might kill a dog on television, without repercussion. How could one think of something like that in our supposedly civilized society?
Here is something that is apparently a big problem: While having a nice mug of Kirin or Sapporo, you notice that the foam head has broken down! Well thankfully the crazy tech gods have developed a solution! A mug that creates more foam at the push of a button! Yes, that's right, more bubbles for all. That is because everything can be fixed with more bubbles, right?
Apparently though there are people who are more or less neglected. I know I should be kind and say “ or sometimes family can't make it...” but seriously, if you're on death's doorstep for any period of time, there is no reason for people not to show up. But fear not, “late-stage orphan.” Dan Chen is looking out for you.
