    Geek Lunch: Bacon double dog burrito

    For the record, I hate cooking. So if I’m putting a recipe up here you can be sure that it’s something cheap, easy, and quick. Like many self-proclaimed geeks, I eat purely to survive. Inspired by a whimsical little show on the Food Network called Diners, Drive-ins and Dives (I think eating takes too much time, yet I’ll watch shows about food for some unknown reason), this recipe is… Read More

    Now THAT is a lot of Chicken McNuggets. Like, so many that the Hamburglar might actually consider a) switching briefly to chicken instead of hamburgers and b) paying the $10 instead of going to all the trouble of trying to conceal a gigantic bucket of chicken under his cape. Read More

    The future, to go: Heinz reinvents the ketchup packet

    My entire life, the ketchup packet has remained a constant. Its saw-tooth edge and slightly bulbous form, enclosing not nearly enough ketchup, is something that, like a grand oak of food package design, you expected never to change.

    Double patty breakfast sandwich proves that mankind has officially done it all

    We can all stop innovating now. It’s here. The double patty breakfast sandwich. If you’re an inventor, you can lock up your workshop and go home. There’s officially nothing left to improve upon as a society. Unless someone comes out with a triple patty version, that is. Read More

  • Free Wi-Fi at McDonald’s starts today. Buh, buh, bup, buh, bah, I’m lovin’ it!!!

    Free Wi-Fi at McDonald’s starts today. Buh, buh, bup, buh, bah, I’m lovin’ it!!!

    Ah yes. Nothing better than toting your laptop into McDonald’s and going through a handful of napkins every time you need to type something or move the mouse cursor. The food there is greasy, I guess would be the main takeaway from that sentence. Read More

    Powered cooler to replace ice at picnics – and you ask why there's an energy crisis

    Here's the thing. I appreciate innovation. This rechargable portable refrigerator looks handy. Handy if you live in a world without ice. I mean really now: there is more water than anything else in the world, and you possess the means to freeze it in your very own home. Once you decide that you'd rather use up about a gazillawatt of energy to keep a couple drinks cold rather than reach into get… Read More

    Ten-person boat features built-in grill

    Summer, much like Karma Chameleon, comes and goes. It comes and goes. And I'll be damned if this past summer came and went with few (if any) of us wiling away the hours in a circular boat with a built-in grill. Read More
