Since then, multiple YouTube channels, food blogs, and even Spoon University have been trying to recreate this genius invention. Being too lazy to make my own cookie dough, I opted for some store bought Pillsbury cookie dough. Here is my journey to conquering the cookie shot (or in my case, the cookie cup) as well as some tips and tricks I discovered along the way.

Hacker says NASA is editing out UFOs from the videos before releasing them Meet Gary McKinnon who thinks that NASA is editing out the parts of UFO appearances in the videos it releases to the public and it has been doing so for years. He is a avid UFO watcher and has faced a 10-year fight against extradition to the US after breaking into computer databases of NASA, US military and the Pentagon. According to McKinnon, NASA and the US government has known for years we are being regularly monitored by UFOs from far-flung galaxies. But it believes that the general public wont be able handle the truth, or it would lead to the breakdown of religion and society and it has been successfully withheld the information by covering it up. McKinnon says that his interest in UFO’s and NASA coverup built up after former NASA contractor Donna Hare went whistleblower in November 2000 with claims that NASA staff digitally edited out UFOs from satellite pictures before they were released, from Building eight of the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas.

Type Ia supernovas—exploding white dwarf stars—are considered the most reliable distance markers for objects beyond our local group of galaxies. Because all Type Ia supernovas give off about the same amount of light, their distance can be inferred by the light intensity observed from Earth. These so-called standard candles are critical to astronomers' efforts to map the cosmos. It's been estimated that Type Ia supernovas can be used to calculate distances to within 10 percent accuracy, good enough to help scientists determine that the expansion of the universe is accelerating, a discovery that garnered the Nobel Prize in 2011.

The Blob, but smaller: Tasmania's slime moulds - Off Track Slime moulds, long belittled as 'demon's droppings' and 'snake poo', are everywhere—and they're on the hunt for prey. What are they, though? A plant? An animal? A fungus? P. G. Wodehouse Wodehouse in 1930 (aged 48) Although most of Wodehouse's fiction is set in England, he spent much of his life in the US and used New York and Hollywood as settings for some of his novels and short stories. During and after the First World War, together with Guy Bolton and Jerome Kern, he wrote a series of Broadway musical comedies that were an important part of the development of the American musical. He began the 1930s writing for MGM in Hollywood. In a 1931 interview, his naïve revelations of incompetence and extravagance in the studios caused a furore.
