A Spice Gull Is a Seagull Who Fell Into a Vat of Chicken Tikka Masala

“Weak End at Bernie’s” is a pretty good headline, but it’s got nothing on “Spice Gull,” the phrase used by the Guardian to describe a seagull that fell into a vat of faux-Indian food.

But did the gull tell them what he wants, what he really, really wants? 😉

Guess What: You Can Deep Fry Water

Not that I would ever want to encourage anyone from trying it at home, but you probably could up the safe factor with a fry screen and keeping the pot covered the entire time.  That would be slightly safer…

18 grams of water (a little over a tablespoon) will expand to 22.4 liters of volume when turned to steam, and it will happen really fast. So if that little ball thing leaks, the resulting steam will probably blow the top off your frying vessel and cause the oil to boil over, exposing it to the naked flame beneath or testing the circuit breaker in your electric appliance. You probably won’t have hot oil flying at your face and you might not have an oil fire, but at the very least you will have a very big mess to clean up.

What is your vision of hell? My vision of hell is being selected as a presenter for a TV baking competition and being unable to taste the desserts because I’m stuck on a low-carb diet.

The Great British Bakeoff is amazing. I’ve been binging it all week, watching Series 6. The only season on Netflix is PBS season 1, UK series 5, and the next season to come to Netflix will be PBS season 2, UK series 4 (weird, right?). So I’m watching all the ones around that so that I can binge on Netflix properly when the next season gets uploaded.

Four Sets of Identical Twins Staged a Time Travel Prank on an NYC Subway

Most NYC subway riders are pretty blasé when panhandlers hit them up for cash between stations. When a panhandler announced he was collecting funds to build a time machine, riders chuckled at the odd request—until another man boarded the train and announced he was the inventor’s future self. He implored them not to give any money because time travel will ruin everything.

It would have helped if they’d been better actors. It’s a really fun idea though.
