Korean ‘Fire Noodle Challenge’ Spreads Online | KoreAm Journal - Korean America's Premier Magazine
"There’s been a recent surge of people trying to eat Samyang’s Bool Dak Bokkeum Myun (translation: Flaming Chicken Fried Noodles), one of South Korea’s spiciest ramens, as quickly as possible on YouTube. Why are so many people doing this sadistic challenge? I have no idea, but watching strangers cry and writhe in food pain is surprisingly entertaining." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Nope. I like spicy noodles, but these sound ridiculous. The lady at the store even warned me off of them. - Anika
I'm not a big fan of Korean ramen to begin w/but I'd try it once if I happened to see it. - rönin
Ok so I bought one while we were at H-Mart this weekend. - rönin
Good luck! ;) - Jenny H. from Android
Ok well that wasn't so bad. But possibly because I left some water in before I put in the hot packet. The burn kinda sneaks up on you and lingers though. And I'm salivating like crazy. And my lips feel puffy. Despite the spiciness it's actually kinda tasty. - rönin
So, I'll pass. I love spicy foods, but when my lips feel different, it's not even fun. Glad to heard they taste good, though. - Anika
I'd try it again. That guy who ate 5 packs in one sitting is crazy though. I was almost at my limit by the end of just one. And that's even after my wife had a couple of bites. - rönin
Well now I want to try this... - Hookuh Tinypants

Cookbook Review: Gabrielle Hamilton's Prune - Eater -
"But I don't think recipes are the primary thing Prune has to offer. I realize that's maybe a strange thing to say about a cookbook, but in this case the value lies not in the food you make with this book, but in the lessons you can learn from it as a whole. The book seems to be meant to be read cover-to-cover: not as a collection of recipes, but as one giant recipe for a restaurant." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

Distillery tour?
yes, please. - Kevin Johnson
Sure! - Marie
Between Merry saying she's had "too many cookies" - whatever those words mean - and you acting like this is an actual question, I'm feeling like I don't understand English today. Too many cookies is NOT a thing and OF COURSE you take the distillery tour. Especially if it comes with samples... ;) - WebGoddess

"You can’t get good chicken fat here in the States. A USDA plant needs approval for each part of the animal they want to use: necks, wings, heads, whatever. A guy at one of the chicken farms we use says he throws all his chicken fat away; it’s too much of a hassle to get it USDA approved, and nobody wants to buy it." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"So I use whatever I can get. It’s not bad. It’s good, but it’s not as delicious. At the shop, people are like, You could use Flying Pigs Farms or whatever, and it’s like, Yeah, but they want $15 per pound for their birds. Then they’ll say, Why don’t you use pastured, sustainable, organic meat? And I’m like, Will you pay $25 per bowl of ramen? People think that’s terrible, but it’s... more... - Andrew C (✔)
"The point is, ramen is so cheap compared to all the work that goes into it. Food in general should be much more expensive than it is. David had a great quote in Lucky Peach about how an Italian restaurant can charge you $28 for spaghetti pomodoro, and the fucking chef just opens a can of San Marzano tomatoes, breaks them up, mixes ’em with garlic and olive oil, and people are like, Oh... more... - Andrew C (✔)
I like the point he makes about being able to properly critique things like ramen - most Americans just don't have that background. We know from sandwiches, and can understand when the bread is wrong, or the condiments don't work, but we're lacking that knowledge about noodles and tare, so the stuff we nitpick about is just wrong. - Jennifer Dittrich
Could Kool-Aid Man Really Bust Through a Brick Wall? Science Finally Has an Answer | Adweek -
Could Kool-Aid Man Really Bust Through a Brick Wall? Science Finally Has an Answer | Adweek
"In short, the answer is: Yes, Kool-Aid man could, though he probably wouldn't feel too great afterwards. It turns out that scaling an ordinary pitcher up to six feet, then filling it with the correct amount of Kool-Aid would make Kool-Aid Man an 11,000-pound elephant-size beast with glass at least 3.6 inches thick. Even a creature made of ordinary glass would be able to break through a brick wall at that size by getting up to a run, but we don't actually know what kind of glass Kool-Aid Man is made from. Heck, he could be made from Pyrex. Nonetheless, the video explores how laminated glass (the bullet-proof stuff) would help him survive the inevitable surface cracks from his wall-breaking feats, but it doesn't cover fully tempered glass, heat-strengthened material or any of the many other glass varieties. Certainly, there's a materials scientist out there who could, with enough zeal, create the proper thickness, tempering and coating combination that would let Kool-Aid man break through more than just one wall." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

My grandfather marched to Selma with Dr King. I'm glad and proud that he did, and I also wish things were better now than they are.
Wow. What a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Does he have photos? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Not that I know of. He just sent us a slightly abridged transcript of a long letter he wrote to his parents just after having completed the march. It ends "I was ashamed for America on Tuesday, ashamed that it was necessary to march in protest against police brutality and on behalf of civil rights. But frightening as it was, there is no place on God’s green earth that I would have traded for the privilege of being in the march in Selma, Alabama." - lris
That is fantastic! Again, what a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Has he seen the movie? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
That is something to be proud of. - Eric - ill subliminal
Also, things are better than they were. What's frustrating is that our culture can't seem to recognize that we have so far to go. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Or that it's so important to our maturation and survival. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
I don't know if he's seen the movie. And your last comment reminds me of another passage in Papa's letter where he talks about realizing that there is "profound sense" to the statement that "the Negro will give America back her soul" (in 1960s language) because of the way people were talking about why they were involved in the march. I think he was talking about exactly that maturation and survival. - lris
Wow. what an incredible connection. - laura x from iPhone

Darcey Bussell: hip-hop moves are as difficult as ballet - Telegraph -
Darcey Bussell: hip-hop moves are as difficult as ballet - Telegraph
"Hip-hop moves are just as difficult as classical ballet and the two styles should be judged on an equal footing, according to Darcey Bussell. The former Royal Ballet star and Strictly Come Dancing judge is the face of a new talent show, BBC Young Dancer 2015. The contest will be divided into four categories – ballet, contemporary, hip hop and South Asian dance – and the best of each will compete for the overall title in a grand final at Sadler’s Wells. Asked if traditionalists woud be surprised to see hip hop given equal billing to ballet, Bussell said: “Well, it has its own tradition. The only thing that is different is that its history is just shorter. “I’ve tried to do some hip hop and it is so difficult. You need so many things to be able to do hip hop – extraordinary strength and ability. “Asian dance, with the arms especially, couldn’t be more similar to classical ballet: those emphases on the tiniest amount of detail, just where a finger is.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Kenneth Tharp, chief executive of London’s contemporary dance centre The Place and one of the show’s judges, said fans of traditional ballet will be pleasantly surprised by more modern forms of dance. “If people watching the programme are open, it’s a real chance to educate them about different sorts of dance,” he said. “And, in fact, if you’re a ballet fan you will very quickly... more... - Jessie
" The show is part of the BBC’s “Year of Song and Dance”, unveiled at Sadler’s Wells by the corporation’s director-general Lord Hall. Bussell admitted that winning a talent contest is not a passport to fame. “I’ve judged a lot of dance competitions around the world and it’s amazing that actually some of the people that do incredibly well have a much shorter career, and the ones that... more... - Jessie

Woke up treating my arm as gingerly as ever. Did a few things around the house & realized it wasn't hurting. Tried moving my arm, and I can raise it a couple inches and also reach out away from my body. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I can also make a real fist again. That should help with the annoying dropping of stuff for no reason. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

I haven't worn a watch on my wrist since I was 13 or so... I kept losing them because I'd take them off due to the strap irritating me. So eventually my mom got me a belt loop keychain to wear my watch on, kind of like a really cheap pocket watch, and that's what I did until smartphones. - Andrew C (✔)

Ken, I'd need it to have an enormous screen that takes up very little space on my wrist. So I guess I'm holding out for a holographic watch. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I've got the Moto 360, which is pretty nice. If you treat the watch as just a notification device, then it's perfect. rif you're expecting it to replace your phone, then you'll be very disappointed. - Jason Huebel from Flucso
If they did some cool biometric monitoring I might be interested. It would need to be more than skin temperature and heart rate though. Is it even possible to get accurate blood pressure readings with a watch? - Ken Morley

Unskilled Workers Report for New Jobs - The New Yorker
"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—Sixty-four unskilled workers will report to new jobs in Washington, D.C. on Tuesday as part of a federal jobs program that provides employment for people unable to find productive work elsewhere. The new hires, who have no talents or abilities that would make them employable in most workplaces, will be earning a first-year salary of $174,000. For that sum, the new employees will be expected to work a hundred and thirty-seven days a year, leaving them with two hundred and twenty-eight days of vacation." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
