Best Tasting Jell-O Shot Recipes
Updated 10/29/09 The Experiment Previously, we investigated the strongest possible Jell-O shotand showed that a Jell-O shot can, in fact, be lit on fire. The reader response to these investigations was overwhelming, we received hundreds of methods and recipes for producing the "best" Jell-O shot. Equipped with this reader input, a minibar’s worth of booze, a grocery cart full of Jell-O, and the spirit of scientific investigation, we embarked on a grueling series of further Jell-O shot trials, and here we present our findings. The Flavor Challenge Previously we focused our efforts on maximizing the alcoholic potency of the shots. In our selection of liquors and recipe combinations, we tried to stick to the basics: liquors and ingredients that were economical and easy to find or likely to be on hand. Start With the Basics Here’s a rundown of some of the best basic Jell-O/liquor combinations that we tried. These shots were prepared by dissolving 3 oz. Our most important finding? Pickled Fruit

Crack a Master Combination Padlock Redux - Illustration - Lifeha As a locksmith, I have a responsibility to the public to educate folks on things like this. Sorry, friend, but your initial statement is false, unless you're referring to locks which are not considered padlocks. Even then, certain door-mounted cylinders are susceptible to a variation on this attack. While the introduction of ball-bearings in the locking dog has significantly reduced the percentage of locks with which this attack is effective, it still works on a very large number of cheap padlocks without this particular addition. This was some time ago but if I recall correctly he was talking about prying his combo lock faceplate open (at least that's what I think I was referring to). I do have to admit my response and his post are not that well written so I'm not sure. I just read his post, and it appears to me that he is talking about shimming as it's described in the article. I must also admit that my response was a bit vague.

Intelligent people have 'unnatural' preferences and values that More intelligent people are significantly more likely to exhibit social values and religious and political preferences that are novel to the human species in evolutionary history. Specifically, liberalism and atheism, and for men (but not women), preference for sexual exclusivity correlate with higher intelligence, a new study finds. The study, published in the March 2010 issue of the peer-reviewed scientific journal Social Psychology Quarterly, advances a new theory to explain why people form particular preferences and values. The theory suggests that more intelligent people are more likely than less intelligent people to adopt evolutionarily novel preferences and values, but intelligence does not correlate with preferences and values that are old enough to have been shaped by evolution over millions of years." "Evolutionarily novel" preferences and values are those that humans are not biologically designed to have and our ancestors probably did not possess.

A Story About ‘Magic' Some years ago, I (GLS) was snooping around in the cabinets that housed the MIT AI Lab's PDP-10, and noticed a little switch glued to the frame of one cabinet. It was obviously a homebrew job, added by one of the lab's hardware hackers (no one knows who). You don't touch an unknown switch on a computer without knowing what it does, because you might crash the computer. The switch was labeled in a most unhelpful way. I called another hacker over to look at it. It was clear that this switch was someone's idea of a silly joke. Imagine our utter astonishment. A year later, I told this story to yet another hacker, David Moon as I recall. The computer promptly crashed. This time we ran for Richard Greenblatt, a long-time MIT hacker, who was close at hand. We still don't know how the switch crashed the machine. I still have that switch in my basement. 1994: Another explanation of this story has since been offered.

mental_floss Blog » Extreme Weirdness: Antarctica’s “Blood Falls There is a glacier in Antarctica that seems to be weeping a river of blood. It's one of the continent's strangest features, and it's located in one of the continent's strangest places -- the McMurdo Dry Valleys, a huge, ice-free zone and one of the world's harshest deserts. So imagine you're hiking through this -- -- which has been kept ice-less since God was a child because of something called the katabatic winds, which sweep over the valleys at up to 200 mph and suck all the moisture out of them. A bleeding glacier. The source of that water is an intensely salty lake trapped beneath 1,300 feet of ice, and a new study has now found that microbes have carved out a niche for themselves in that inhospitable environment, living on sulfur and iron compounds.
