A Totally Exhaustive Guide to the Food of Seinfeld

Are those pretzels making you thirsty? Will you only eat a marbled rye from Schnitzer's? Do you secretly wonder if horses actually love Beef-A-Reeno? If so, you're probably a Seinfeld fan (and if not, those last three questions probably sound like nonsense).

For those that love the show about nothing, food has a special role in the universe of pointlessness. A mention of muffin tops doesn't bring to mind love handles, but the thought of whole trashbags of muffin stumps.

For a complete rundown of every food reference in the show, this extensive Flavorwire article is a must-read -and it might just make you hungry for a Big Salad.

This Nuclear Powered Rocket Would Have Been "A Flying Chernobyl"


(Photo: The Troy II-C nuclear ramjet engine via the US Department of Energy)

In 1957, the United States began secretly developing a new type of aircraft. This was the Atomic Age, when nuclear energy seemed to offer unlimited energy in numerous ways. Nuclear reactors provide enormous potential, which is why America put them into submarines and aircraft carriers at this time. It seemed only reasonable to apply this power to aircraft.

Scientists envisioned the Supersonic Low Altitude Missile as a drone that would travel at 2,500 miles per hour over the Earth, dropping multiple hydrogen bombs over the Soviet Union. It would not need to refuel, as conventional aircraft do.

The US had already experimented with putting a nuclear reactor inside a modified B-36 bomber. But the shielding necessary to protect the crew from radiation created weight problems. So developers went in a different direction: a nuclear-powered drone aircraft. Steve Weintz writes for Medium:

While the nuclear aircraft program wrestled with complicated plumbing and tons of shielding, the SLAM project dispensed with the crew and pursued a simple but scary idea—the nuclear ramjet.

A ramjet is a jet engine that moves so fast, the air entering its combustion chamber becomes hot and dense enough to ignite fuel. The resulting explosion of hot gas pushes the ramjet—and its attached vehicle—to supersonic or even hypersonic speeds.

Though simple in design, a ramjet is tough to build and operate. Rockets and conventional turbojet engines must first accelerate a ramjet-powered aircraft fast enough before the ramjet can kick in. Ramjets also require special materials to resist intense heat and pressure. And they gulp fuel like a drag racer.

But if made small, light and tough enough, a nuclear reactor could solve the fuel consumption problem and give a ramjet-powered vehicle enormous range.

It's a great idea. Unless, of course, the nuclear reactor explodes:

Suppose the guidance system failed and a missile roared over friendly territory? If the range-safety officer destroyed it in flight, you still had a supersonic nuclear mess on your hands.

Even if the missile worked as designed, it also violated the recently-signed Atmospheric Test Ban Treaty. An open-cycle engine like the nuclear ramjet exhales radioactive air and dust-sized bits of nuclear fuel as it roars along, and no technology available then or now could clean it up.

Though one scientist who worked on the project described it as "like zany science fiction," the nuclear ramjet soon became obsolete. New intercontinental ballistic missiles could accurately deliver their payloads within minutes--a much shorter period of time than the nuclear ramjet drone offer.

The Story Behind a Hoard of Gold Double Eagle Coins a Man Found Buried in His Back Yard

Image: Portable Antiquities Scheme

A man named Terence Castle was digging a pond in his back yard in 2007 when he found the proverbial pot at the end of the rainbow. A treasure of 80 gold U.S. Double Eagle coins with dates ranging from 1854 to 1913 were in the cache. The virtuous Castle, whose residence is in the Hackney borough of London, informed authorities of his find and eventually gave up the treasure to its rightful owners: the Sulzbacher family.

Martin Sulzbacher, a Jewish refugee from Germany, was a banker who placed the coins in a bank vault just prior to World War II. In 1940, Martin's wife and children were sent to an internment camp in the Isle of Man, and Martin, declared an "enemy alien," was sent first to Canada and then to Australia. Eventually he joined his family in the Isle of Man. In their absence, Martin's brother, a citizen of the UK, took the coins out of the bank and buried them in the back yard. 

When Martin and his family returned home after his period of internment, he found that his house had been demolished by a German bomb and his brother and extended family were killed. No one who knew of the location of the coins was still living. Yet when Castle's discovery hit the news, Max Sulzbacher, by that time aged 81, was able to make his rightful claim on the hoard. 

Read about six other hoarded treasures found in the last seven years at Mental Floss.

FRIDAY THE 13TH: FORCEFUL ENTRY - Know Any Good Knock Knock Jokes?


FRIDAY THE 13TH: FORCEFUL ENTRY by BeastPop

Jason isn't very good at knocking before he enters, in fact he prefers to skip the formalities and simply walk right through the front door before letting his axe greet everyone in the room. His mother taught him to be polite, but somewhere along the way Jason has forgotten all of her advice and now spends his days cutting snotty teenagers into bite sized chunks. The Voorhees boy might not be winning an award for Most Polite anytime soon, but at least he's keeping Camp Crystal Lake free of millennials!

Trailer for Love & Mercy, Beach Boys Biopic



Love & Mercy, a film based on the story of The Beach Boys, is set for release on June 5 of this year. Based on the trailer below, I think it looks promising. Particularly with the thoughtful casting of terrific actor Paul Dano as a young Brian Wilson and John Cusack as an older Wilson, it seems as if the film is a hopeful bet for presenting the rich history of the band and the story of the troubled Wilson in a nuanced and honest way. Wilson himself played a role in the development of the film, which hopefully added some realism and integrity to the production. Esquire conducted a recent interview with Brian Wilson, which you can read here

This Vibrating Bed Is Designed to Remove Kidney Stones

(Photo: QQ)

The wife of Zhu Qinghua, a rice farmer in Jiangxi, China, has kidney stones. She has already lost one kidney, so it is imperative to keep the other one healthy.

Her doctor said that she should stand on her head periodically in order to dislodge the stones. To make that easier, Zhu designed and built this bed, which holds a patient at different angles. It has a driving wheel from a tractor which vibrates the bed as his wife lies in it. This is supposed to shake the kidney stones loose.

Zhu has patented his invention and hopes to soon begin mass producing it.

(Photo: Andrew Augustus/WPRO News)

Pictured above are Bob Steel and John Barnitt of mouldCAM, a boat building company in Bristol, Rhode Island. They are standing next to the two halves of what will be the largest surfboard in the world.

It will be 42 feet long and 11 feet wide. It will be able to hold up to 62 people at the same time. To secure a world record, the board will have to hold those 62 people on a wave for at least 10 seconds.

Barnitt and Steel plan to complete their board and take out on the water at Huntington Beach, California—AKA “Surf City”—in June.

Knifehead - Beauty Is Only Skin Deep


Knifehead by Adam works

Kaiju come in all kinds of crazy shapes and drastically different sizes, from tiny and almost cute to giant and gruesome, and the only way to effectively deal with them is by studying their anatomy.

Knowledge is the key to destroying kaiju, and the only way humanity stands a chance against these rampaging beasts is by knowing their weaknesses and becoming one with the Jaeger!

A baggage handler for Alaska Airlines fell asleep in the cargo area of the plane Monday and began yelling and pounding on the walls when he awoke. Passengers and crew of Alaska Airlines Flight 448 bound for Los Angeles heard screams and banging noises coming from the cargo hold after takeoff. The passengers were told that the plane would return to the airport, and that they would be informed of the reason later. The employee spent 14 minutes in the pressurized, climate controlled cargo hold and was taken to a local hospital when the plane landed.

Cheese Ball Crust Pizza

Cheese balls are more than just a breakfast food or a dessert topping. Nick Chipman of DudeFoods proves that they can make a great pizza crust, too! He made a pizza with them as a base by using a large amount of cheese (the ideal quantity of cheese on any occasion is always a variation of the word “large”) to link the cheese balls together.

"Success Kid" of Meme Fame's Father Desperately in Need of Transplant

Image: Laney Griner

Shown above is the face behind a hugely popular meme. Called "Success Kid," the meme got its start in 2007 when mother Laney Griner posted the above photo of her son Sammy at the age of eleven months looking victorious during a visit to the beach. Sammy's photo went from MySpace to Reddit on the way to internet fame, and has been in regular circulation in the eight years since.

Yet today, the photo represents a story other than success in all shapes and sizes. Sammy Griner's father Justin is seriously ill and needs a kidney transplant. He was diagnosed with kidney disease in 2006, and in 2009 Justin experienced full kidney failure and began spending 12 hours a week on dialysis. Laney says that Justin can only survive for so long with artificial kidney filtering. Justin's mother passed away from the same disease.   

The Griners have started a fund to help with the associated costs of Justin's medical condition. L

Bowler Hat Colander

If you're a member of the Pastafarian religion, for which wearing a colander is traditional, or you just like to look snazzy, then the bowler colander is for you. After wearing one for the first time, you may have found that, as a practical matter, it is unsuitable for headgear. That is because you are using a colander designed solely for kitchen use. Firebox's colander, however, is designed with head comfort and style in mind. It's ideal for dinner parties and job interviews.

How Many Game of Thrones Readers Have Died?


(Image: HBO)

No, we're not talking about how many characters George R.R. Martin has killed off, but how many readers of his multivolume series A Song of Ice and Fire. He published the first volume, A Game of Thrones, in 1996. It was a huge publishing success. Many people read it. Not all of those readers are still alive.

Jerzy Wieczorek, a doctoral student in statistics at Carnegie Mellon University, speculates that about 40,000 readers who began the series did not live to see the publication of the fifth novel, A Dance with Dragons. We can reasonably conclude that George R.R. Martin is responsible for their deaths, most of which were gruesome and cruel.

Hang In There, Rocket - The Best Motivational Poster In The Galaxy!


Hang In There, Rocket by Poopsmoothie

Rocket has found himself in all sorts of predicaments over the years, from intergalactic starship battles to rocket launcher battles to good ol' fashioned fang and claw battles, but he'd never felt more scared than when he found himself dangling from a tree branch a hundred feet off the ground. He had mistaken the tree for his buddy Groot, albeit a Groot who'd received too much galaxy growth serum, so he scurried up into the branches to take a nap. But when he awakened and discovered it was just an ordinary old tree, and he was stuck way up in the top branches with no easy way down, he started to freak out...

Theories of Disappointment



Grant Snider of Incidental Comics takes on the inevitable occurrence in life of being disappointed. Whether it's disappointment as a result of the actions of significant others, friends or family, disappointment in the workplace or in other life circumstances, it's unavoidable. But as Snider points out, trying to avoid disappointment at all costs only makes your world smaller, with few opportunities, and thus, more disappointing. 

This is part one of "Theories of Disappointment." See part two at Incidental Comics.

K-9 Angels: Models on a Meaningful Mission

The Britain-based K-9 Angels are a trio of blond models dedicated to rescuing stray dogs. Yet these pretty ladies aren't just figureheads who have others do all the grunt work. Their efforts in "the trenches" of stray dog territory have saved 700 dogs thus far from terrible fates on the streets of Romania, Cyprus, Thailand and the UK, and they plan to expand the operation to include other countries.

The K-9 Angels was founded in 2011 by Pola Pospieszalska, television personality Anneka Svenska, and former Playboy model Victoria Eisermann. One of the main objectives of the group since its inception has been tackling the outcome of a 2013 Romanian law that made euthanasia legal in response to a stray dog problem. The Angels say the law has led to the killing of dogs in horrifying ways such as clubbing and being set on fire. Pospieszalska told the Daily Mail,

"Romania's stray dog situation is probably one of the worst in Europe and sad, neglected, hungry animals are a part of Romanian landscape... It is common in Romania for them not to use a euthanasia injection, but instead dispose of dogs in cheaper ways such as injecting paint thinner into the heart, strangling, and clubbing to death.

What an awful situation, and what a relief to know that this group is saving some of these dogs as well as calling worldwide attention to the problem.

The Savage, Grunting World of Pro Arm Wrestling

Only very briefly during this match does Brazilian champion Chris Teodoro De Souza use coherent words in a human language. Beyond that, she is only a grunting and roaring mound of muscle, rage, and victory.

Among the benefits of civilization are elegance and gentility. With them come a certain softness. De Souza has none of these. She has only the raw, animalistic power necessary to crush her enemies. It's a wondrous and beautiful thing.

Her howl of joy at 02:53 mark after destroying yet another opponent is spectacular.
