Everything you ever wanted to know about RC Cola (and why it never became popular).
Still my favorite soda… though I don’t even drink Coke any more…
Why we are almost certainly not alone, and why we will almost certainly never meet another alien species anyway.
It came to me in a dream. What if you took a Chick-Fil-A sandwich and an In-N-Out burger and put them together?
Today I made that dream a reality, taking one In-N-Out cheeseburger (animal style) and one Chick-Fil-A sandwich (extra pickles) and slapping them together. (Drop the bottom bun of the In-N-Out and the top bun of the Chick-Fil-A. Chicken goes on the bottom of the combined sandwich.)
Results: Incredibly delicious and probably extremely healthy, too. The Chick-N-Out (get it?) is one for the ages!
Mount Rushmore was originally conceived as nothing more than a way to get tourists to come to South Dakota. Beats the world’s largest ball of twine, I guess.
My old boss Tere knew shorthand, and watching her scribble those hieroglyphics during interviews always fascinated me. This story makes me want to master it myself.
Bring in the drones!
Is it just me or are the April Fools’ Day pranks of today getting entirely tiresome? I think it’s because the internet makes it too easy to pull them off. How about painting the Golden Gate Bridge blue or releasing a herd of cows inside City Hall? Now that’s a prank, people.
Case in point. (I can’t tell if Eater even got the joke…)
How do you get placebos to work better? Charge more for them. Mind over matter… but money over mind.
The lightsaber bit had me LOLing.
The new law goes into effect for large grocery chains and pharmacies beginning July 1, 2015. It will extend to convenience stores and liquor stores July 1, 2016.
Under the law, stores will be required to offer customers recycled paper bags or bags made of compostable material at a cost of at least 10 cents. Consumers buying groceries using California’s food-assistance program won’t have to pay for bags.
Assuming the law keeps expanding: How will Chinatown function?
