The History Of Mac And Cheese

Young people might be forgiven for thinking that Kraft invented macaroni and cheese. Thomas Jefferson enjoyed it on a diplomatic mission to France- so much that he championed its adoption in America. But even before that, macaroni and cheese was an old and established European dish. How far back does it go?

The Liber de Coquina, or Book of Cooking, was published around the beginning of the 1300s. That’s roughly the same time William Wallace was marauding around Britain and killing English. Liber de Coquina includes recipes for baked pasta dishes with parmesan and other cheese sauces. Basically your average mac and cheese casseroles. If you can read Latin, the cookbooks are available online. They’re a fascinating snapshot into our shared culinary past.

The development of the ubiquitous and comforting macaroni and cheese from its earliest documentation until today is chronicled at Uproxx.

Responsibilities

We all have to deal with our responsibilities on a daily basis, and even people who consider themselves irresponsible have a personal responsibility to maintain that irresponsibility.

Most of us work because we have mouths to feed, but as this comic from Oppressive Silence shows that idiom means drastically different things to different people...

Danny Thompson Continues His Father’s Speed Legacy

There have only been 12 people in the world who have gone over 400 miles an hour in a piston-powered car. One of them was legendary racer Mickey Thompson in 1960, when he became the first American to exceed 400 mph. The twelfth man to do it was his son Danny Thompson, who broke his father’s speed of 406.6 miles last week at the Bonneville Salt Flats in Utah.

At Bonneville you have to make the trip twice to enter the record books. You go straight out, foot to the floor, for 5 miles or more on the first day -- the down run. Then you do the same thing again on the next day: the return run. Your official time is the average of both speeds at the 5-mile mark.

Mickey Thompson was never able to accomplish that. His car broke down on the return leg. He tried in 1968, but rain stopped him. He was going to try a third time in 1988, this time teaming up with Danny, when a bullet stopped him forever.

Danny couldn't bear the thought of continuing the project alone, and so he put Challenger in storage. Half a century after his dad broke 400, he decided to go for the official recognition that comes with two successful runs. He spent nearly seven years working on the car, getting it just right.

Danny Thompson’s speed was 411.191 on the first run and 402.348 on the second, for an official average of 406.767, just above his father’s speed and a new American record for his vehicle’s class. Read the story of the race at CNN.

Danny Thompson posted an image from that day to reddit to announce "It took almost 50 years, but I set 400mph speed record in my dad's car last weekend." He said his lips were chapped and kissing the salt after the second run tasted like "pain, sweet pain."

How Different Majors React When Their Party Is Busted By The Cops

Officer, I've diagnosed you with over 20 different disorders from my Psych 101 textbook. Are you sure you want to arrest me, or are you just projecting because of your relationship with your father?

Partying and college go together like long lectures and napping, and it seems like no matter the age of the student, the campus or the major they're all partying through their degree.

And if you party long and hard enough you're bound to get a visit from the cops, or the campus cops as the case may be, which every student will deal with in a different manner.

Wow, breaking up a drinking party. How cliche. I bet you guys were eating donuts right before this, too, you hacks.

For example, a film student is likely to go all Tarantino on the cops at their door while a business major will try to cut a deal.

I'll give you twenty dollars if you don't charge me for throwing this party. I'll give you forty dollars if you don't charge me for trying to bribe you.

The psychology student will try to psychoanalyze the officers, which is likely to get that student arrested for being annoying, while the computer science prefers to freak out in code.

if (cop's running speed < 6mph){

run away

}

else{

play dead

}

Welcome to the Fourth Grade

Imagine you are nine years old and you don’t feel at all confident about moving up to the fourth grade. You don’t know who your teacher is going to be, or what you’ll be doing this year. And then your parents get an email from your new teacher, and it’s a music video!

(YouTube link)

New teacher Dwayne Reed sent a video to his incoming students to show them what the next year will be like for them. I can imagine that other Chicago fourth-graders are already envious. -via Tastefully Offensive

10 Things To Do In Las Vegas With An Unlimited Budget

The conventional wisdom for a trip to Las Vegas is to not take more money than you are prepared to lose at the casinos. But if you have the bucks, there are plenty of luxury accommodations, side trips, sports, fine dining, and shopping to do. Like a private skiing expedition to the secluded Ruby Mountains via helicopter.

If you have the money and enjoy adventure, you can escape from your Las Vegas trip to the nearby Ruby Mountains. Joe Royer has led Helicopter Skiing adventures in the snow covered mountains since 1977. The Ruby Mountains are a little known area of Nevada with 10 peaks above 10,000 feet. The secluded spot features powdered slopes and alpine lakes.

Royer offers a 3 day package. This includes helicopter lifts up the mountain for at least 20 ski runs. The package includes fine dining, luxury lodging and hiking tours. The company also offers private guide service.

That trip will cost you $4,650 for three days. But there’s plenty of things you can spend even more serious money on in this list from Housely.

Bagel Research Review

The following is an article from The Annals of Improbable Research, now in all-pdf form. Get a subscription now for only $25 a year!

Research studies about or on bagels
by Stephen Drew, Improbable Research staff

The Philosopher’s Bagel Question
“How Many New Yorkers Need to Like Bagels Before You Can Say ‘New Yorkers Like Bagels?’ Understanding Collective Ascription,” Todd Jones, Philosophical Forum, vol. 36, no. 3, Fall 2005, pp. 279–306, DOI:10.1111/j.1467-9191.2005.00204.x. The author, at University of Nevada at Las Vegas, explains:

Using this phrase tells people that it is the case that large numbers of New York City dwellers eat bagels regularly. The context of the conversation often lets a listener know that the speaker is telling her which group compared to others, we’ll find large numbers of Y-doers in. Now this context doesn’t explain what the percentage of Y-doers in this X group is. So such a phrase does run some risk of misleading listeners, if it is interpreted as meaning that most New Yorkers eat lots of bagels. To avoid potential misleadingness a speaker could say “New Yorkers eat a higher percentage of bagels than people in other cities—though it’s not clear that people who eat a lot of bagels are really a majority in New York.” But it is difficult and time-consuming to sift through ones knowledge and come up with this idea. And it’s awkward and time-consuming to speak this way. “New Yorkers really like to eat bagels,” is quicker and easier.

JFK's Goat-Out-the-Vote Campaign

Goats have figured in several political campaigns, but one of the most memorable was when John F. Kennedy first dipped his toes into politics in 1946 at age 29. His older brother Joseph had been groomed for a political career, but he was killed in World War II, so second son John stepped in to fill his shoes. His first run for office was to represent Massachusetts’ 11th Congressional District. It wasn’t going to be easy. The district was full of working class people who didn’t know Jack.

Kennedy's main opponents were formidable: John F. "Spring" Cotter, a Charlestown local, and Michael Neville, a city councilman from Cambridge. Both had experience, and strong community ties. Kennedy didn't. "He was virtually a stranger to Boston," writes historian J. Anthony Lukas in Common Ground. Worse, his chief assets—his name recognition and his dad's money—counted as demerits in the largely working-class areas where he was campaigning. "[Kennedy] is registered at the Hotel Bellevue in Boston, and I daresay he has never slept there," one opponent accused. A local newspaper renamed him "Jack 'Jawn' Kennedy," calling him "ever so British."

"His patrician gloss, the elegant ease acquired at Choate and Harvard and cultivated in London and Palm Beach, was not calculated to go down well in the waterfront saloons of Charlestown, the clammy tenements of the North End, or the bleak three-deckers of East Boston, Brighton, Somerville and Cambridge," writes Lukas. The political establishment ignored him, too. "He was rich, he was young," of his staffers, William J. "Billy" Sutton, later recalled. "They figured he wouldn't catch on."

What turned the tide of public opinion to Kennedy’s favor was an unexpected boost from a goat. Read the story of how that happened at Atlas Obscura.

Semicolon

In 2011, Michael Gosselin jumped in to help a friend who was being mugged. The perpetrator stabbed him in the abdomen, and he had to have one kidney and part of his colon removed as a result of his heroic actions. His childhood friends Garth Purkett and Andy Osborne flew out to see him soon after his surgery. They showed him the new tattoos they got in support: semicolons on their bellies! After he was completely recovered, Gosselin got one, too. The tattoos are now a symbol of their lasting friendship. You can read the whole story at Today. -via a comment at Metafilter

The King’s Letters

Before the 15th century, Korean existed as a spoken language only. Korean writing used Chinese characters, which limited literacy to the elite class who could spend years learning the thousands of pictograms. Then in the 1430s, a scholar came up with an idea to develop a Korean alphabet based on the sounds of the spoken language. Once the alphabet was learned, writing would become accessible to the masses. It was an idea that scared the wits out of the ruling elite class.   

“What do you know of language and linguistics?” the bold scholar asked of several high-ranking officials who objected to his idea. “This project is for the people, and if I don’t do it, who will?” The scholar was none other than Sejong, the king of Korea, who had held the throne since 1418. His profoundly democratic conviction that literacy ought to be accessible to everyone was revolutionary in every sense. When King Sejong unveiled Hangul—his new alphabet for the Korean language—it was met with vehement opposition from Sejong’s advisors, from the literary elite, and from subsequent monarchs. For these objectors, Hangul was barbaric, it was primitive, it was unnecessary, it was an insult, and it needed to be eliminated.

Nevertheless, Sejong was the king, and his alphabet was developed. Still, the powerful bureaucrats of Korea fought its adoption for centuries. The history of Hangul is a fascinating story told at Damn Interesting.

Ex-Cons Remember Their Worst Jobs After Being Released From Prison

(Image Link)

People who wind up in prison often learn skills while they're locked up to help them get a job when they finish their sentence, but a felony on your record reduces your job options to virtually nil.

So ex-cons are often forced to take whichever job they can get, and all that training on the inside ironically ends up being worthless on the outside due to their criminal record.

Writer and ex-con Seth Ferranti spoke with other ex-cons about the worst jobs they've had since they got out, and their answers were bad but not quite as bad as you'd expect.

Seth thought being a sauté cook sucked, but after talking to a guy who worked eleven hours a day cleaning cow crap, a guy who picked up trash at the city dump and, worst of all, a telemarketer he discovered cooking ain't so bad after all!

Unmanned Boat Reaches Hawaii; New Zealand Next

Damon McMillan and friends spent three years designing, building, and perfecting a solar-powered boat called the SeaCharger. The vessel is eight feet long and weighs 60 pounds, and is powered by two plastic solar panels. How far can a boat like this travel on autopilot? On June 11, McMillan launched it into the surf off the coast of Half Moon Bay, California.

An older man who has been watching the entire time approaches me and tells me that he’s sorry that I lost control of my boat and that he’s sure it’ll wash up on the beach somewhere. I assure him that the boat is on autopilot, going exactly where it’s supposed to be going. “And where is that?” he asks. “Hawaii.” The look on his face is priceless.

Indeed, the idea of this tiny, homemade boat surviving 2,400 miles of open ocean to reach Hawaii seems foolishly unrealistic, and I know that more than anybody else. With help from friends, I built the eight-foot-long, autonomous, foam-and-fiberglass, solar-powered SeaCharger in my garage – not to make money or to win a contest, but simply as a challenge.

McMillan tracked the SeaCharger by satellite when it checked in every two hours (or didn’t). On July 22, he was there at Mahukona Harbor in Hawaii when his boat arrived. That’s some accomplishment! But the SeaCharger is still going. After five days of maintenance, it was launched again from Hawaii on July 27, bound for New Zealand. McMillan writes about building the boat and the experience of tracking it at Make. You can keep track of the SeaCharger as it makes its way to New Zealand at the project’s website. -via Metafilter

Watch This Speed Crocheter Craft A Yarn Flower In 90 Seconds

It's go time. #jjcrochetinNYC #speedcrochet #lightscameraaction

A photo posted by Jayna Grassel (@jaynagrassel) on Mar 4, 2016 at 1:08pm PST

I'm constantly impressed by the talented artists who show off their skills online, and their videos are doubly impressive when the skill they're showing off takes years to master and the crafter is working at a blazing fast pace.

Here's a perfect example- a video filmed by Wired/Condé-Nast showing speed crocheter Jayna Grassel crafting a yarn flower in under 90 seconds.

(YouTube Link)

Jayna creates a ludicrously speedy 71 stitches per minute in the video, and says she can actually work faster when she's not uncomfortably positioned for the sake of the camera:

I went up, saw the studio, met a bunch of people and they told me to stand behind a table and crochet while they shot aerially. Um, I don’t crochet standing up. That’s crazy. So they got me a chair and I repositioned myself. But to be honest, it still wasn’t great. As any crocheter will attest, when you crochet your elbows rest almost at your hips, hands at about mid-stomach level. Normal. To get a shot, they had me stretch out my hands so they were centered over a table... It was strange and I’ll admit didn’t set me up to do my best. I was dropping stitches and wasn’t as fast as I’d been practicing.

10 of the Largest Golden Parachutes CEOs Ever Received

When the CEOs of the world’s top corporations are fired, often for running the business into ruin, they often land in retirement with a severance package that the rest of us buy lottery tickets for. These severance deals are so big they call them golden parachutes, since you crash to earth and still have extreme wealth given to you. Hey, you’d retire if you had a hundred million dollars in severance pay, wouldn’t you? But some CEOs even then go on to other jobs!

10. Tom Freston – $100,839,772

When Tom Freston couldn’t manage to acquire MySpace in 2006 for his company Sumner Redstone, they fired him in an embarrassingly public display. Still, Freston went laughing to the bank with his huge severance package of over $100 million. After leaving Sumner Redstone, he went on to head investment group and media consulting firm Firefly3 LLC.

Sweet, huh? But that deal only made number ten on the list of the biggest golden parachutes. Read the rest at Money Inc.

This Dungeons & Dragons Tabletop Diorama Is A Gamer's Dream Come True

Some people don't really want or need anything on the hex mat when they're playing a tabletop roleplaying game, preferring to play solely using the power of imagination.

For the rest of us it's nice to have some visual elements to enhance our experience, including miniatures that actually fit our characters and some terrain pieces.

But miniatures master crafter Ryan Devoto wasn't content with using but a few measley scenic pieces for his Dungeons & Dragons campaign- he wanted a setting his miniatures could truly call home.

So Ryan, along with Michael Tiskus of Terranscapes, built an epic scale D&D diorama complete with a port full of ships, a village, a massive castle with full interior and more.

With a diorama so detailed and varied in terms of environment types the campaign practically writes itself!

Life and Limb

The following article is from Uncle John’s Factastic Bathroom Reader.

(Image credit: Sgt Ian Forsyth RLC/MOD)

Throughout most of history, if you lost a limb, the replacement of choice was a wooden peg (which only looked cool if you were a pirate). But that all changed after a young soldier lost a leg in the Civil War and refused to take his injury lying down.

WALKING TALL

“You’ll dance again, but it’s going to take a year.” That’s the kind of thing that Dr. Mac Hanger III tells a lot of his patients. As one of the world’s leading prosthetists, it’s his job to fit amputees with new limbs and help them acclimate to them. For example: Hanger helped several maimed victims of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombings get their lives back. Losing a limb once meant losing your quality of life, but that’s not so anymore. “People really become different people,” Hanger says. “You lose a leg, but you gain a lot of wisdom and strength.” He should know, because that’s exactly what happened to his great-great-grandfather, J. E. Hanger. And that’s how the modern prosthetics industry was born.

CASUALTY OF WAR

On June 3, 1861, the first land battle of the Civil War took place in Philippi, Virginia. Early that morning, an 18-year-old Confederate soldier named James Edward Hanger was standing guard outside a stable where his fellow soldiers were sleeping. Private Hanger had enlisted only two days earlier. He’d dropped out of engineering school to join his brothers in the Confederate Army. But his career as a soldier would be short-lived. Just after dawn, Hanger heard gunfire, so he ran inside the stable to get his horse. Just then a six-pound cannonball tore through the barn and struck his left leg.

With only a bit of skin keeping his lower leg attached, Hanger crawled to a corner of the barn to hide… and passed out. The next thing he knew, Union soldiers had him on a table, and he was writhing in pain. Unable to save the leg, two field surgeons spent an hour with a jagged saw cutting through Hanger’s skin, muscle, and bone a few inches above his knee. The surgeon then cauterized the wound with a hot iron. The excruciating amputation saved Hanger’s life. But what kind of life would that be?

The Perfect Job Interview

He knows what to say, because he knows what the boss really wants. She’s happy to find someone someone who will work out for the company and never make waves of any kind. This strategy won’t work if you’re interviewing through the Human Resources department, or in front of a committee of people with differing agendas, but this clever fellow might have a different script for those situations. None of this will ever happen in real life, but it’s the subtext of job interviews. This comic is from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal.

Green Screened Moments From The 2016 Summer Olympics In Rio

 photo b77120111be52fc5581539e20e8ee60b_zpsjrbwtgyp.gif

(Image Link)

Green seemed to be a dominant color in the Olympic Games Rio 2016- the green Reals Brazil paid to host the games, the green courts and fields where the games were played, the green backdrops, the green water in the pool...

It's safe to say green is the color which best symbolizes the 2016 Olympics, so creating some “green screened” Olympic moments makes perfect sense!

The green backdrops found throughout the Games made it easy for digital manipulator and Imgur user factionman to place the tennis court in any environment- so he naturally chose outer space.

(via GIPHY)

And even the gymnasts discovered they weren't safe from the green screen treatment even though they performed their floor routines on a tan mat.

Stupid Apps That No One Needs

The 50 Greatest Mustachioed Swordsmen in Screen History

Quick- who is the greatest sword fighter with a mustache in cinema history? The first role that came to your mind is probably the same one I thought of, but he only made #2 on this list.

As far as movies go, nothing goes together better than swords and mustaches. As far as rankings go, the list of the 50 best swordsmen with mustaches from Thrillist is more a nostalgia trip than a serious ranking, because they limited themselves to one sword fighter per movie, and one role per actor. That eliminates a lot of roles, since every sword fight must have as least two participants. So only one character from The Three Musketeers, Captain Blood, Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Lord of the Rings made the list. But what we have left will remind you of many great movies and TV shows you’ve seen and enjoyed. -via Digg

Its Rude To Point - I Don't Know How Things Are Done Where You Come From...


its rude to point by louisros

Aliens don't have the same sense of manners and decency as humans, and they have no idea that their actions could be considered rude until a human tells them so. But if you ever have to tell E.T. he's doing something wrong do it in a closed closet with a bag of Reese's Pieces in your hand, because he's one sensitive little spud! You'd think an alien who looks like a turtle without a shell would have a thicker skin, but apparently beings on his planet can just go around doing whatever they want and nobody will say a thing...must be nice!
