The World Coming to an End

It seems like the world is coming to an end. That makes me reluctant to write about anything else. But I don’t want to observe the world coming to an end either.

The Most Epic Picture of Wearable Technology

From io9:

By the 1990s, Ryan shows, wearable tech meant cyborgs. A group of self-proclaimed cyborgs started MIT’s Borg Lab, (all Star Trek references intended). Thad Starner (far right in the picture), now a manager on the Google Glass project, along with a group of his colleagues, began experimenting with what he called “‘the real personal computers’—as opposed to PCs.”

I didn’t know we ate dandelions

Until 8:30AM this morning, all I ever knew about dandelions was one thing: dandelion seeds are pretty.

After all, who hasn’t played with dandelion seeds, watching them tumble around town?

Well, I have. And I always thought that was the only relationship I had with dandelions (until I discovered at 8:30 this morning) was that I — gasp — eat them. Not only eat them, but really LOVE eating them.

World, did you know that delicious, hearty hindbeh is quite literally just dandelion leaves? Okay. Let’s be more specific, to give hindbeh the true glory it deserves: it’s dandelion leaves glistening with olive oil, garnished with crunchy pine nuts and crispy caramelized onions, then drizzled with lemon juice.

Goodness me.

Hindbeh has always been one of my all-time favorite dishes, and it’s just a shock to realize what it’s made of at the grand age of 30.

Yum.
