Didja know October is Eat Country Ham Month? Me neither. But clearly such an important holiday deserves a theme song. Enter Meat Parade, a retro-style novelty record that cheerfully declares “With bacon, knockwurst, ham or lamb – you’ll never beat that meat!”
I like cake as much as the next guy, and birthday cake is especially good. The thing is while I like dessert, I’d certainly rather have a good steak. This is where Japan got creative and has a new thing dubbed “meat cakes.”
“Cooking With Lava” is the name of this video by Bompas & Parr studio. And that is just what they do. This video features professor Robert Wysocki of Syracuse University in New York State using the 2,000-degree heat of molten lava to cook a 10-ounce rib eye.
When it comes to business cards, it is all about making an impression. Sometimes that means a flashy card with great graphics. Sometimes it means a clever card that lights up or turns into a pop-up book or something.
Smell-o-vision is real, and you can now experience it firsthand with Scentee. In case you haven’t heard about it yet, Scentee is a small smartphone attachment that gives you a whiff of real-world scents and smells at the push of a button (or rather, with a tap on the screen.)

When your starship is overrun with a plague of furry fur-balls, you can work up a hunger fighting them off. But instead of poisoning them, why not get out your forks and start eating them? That’ll show ’em who’s boss.
When we were growing up, our parents always told us not to play with our food. But the results of such dalliances can have proven to be quite impressive from time to time. How could you not love a portrait of Sasquatch, made entirely from beef jerky?
Mmmm… all geeks can appreciate a good slab of meat. While bacon is usually the first choice among us techies, and bacon plus cheese plus bacon is a close second, sausage is always appreciated at my annual Tetris/Cosplay/Steampunk/Apple fest.
A while back, scientist Mitsuyuki Ikeda told the world that his burger patties synthesized from human poop could help alleviate the impending food crisis. Suffice it to say, the idea didn’t really appeal to many people’s palates.
You have many options when it comes to finding that perfect Valentines Day gift for him or her. You could go the traditional route with flowers and chocolates, maybe get them that special gadget, or even make something.
