Getting to know Pink Slime.

There has been a running story for the past couple of weeks about a product called finely textured beef a.k.a pink slime. In essence, pink slime is a filler product made from small bits of meat created during the butchery and processing of beef. It is collected from abattoirs, soaked in ammonia to kill any E.coli (and just about anything else) mashed together into a paste and mixed into ground beef and ground beef products. In other words, meat, that is unfit for use in any other application and is... Read The Rest →

Do not feed the animals.

The food stamp program, part of the Department of Agriculture, is pleased to be distributing the greatest amount of food stamps ever.

Science, making booze boozier.

The good people at Terressentia have come up with a way of using science to make booze taste better by removing impurities left over from the distillation process.  In short, with typical distillation, there are lesser alcohols that are formed that leave a harsh taste in the mouth and contribute to hangovers.  By using their patentend  process, Terressentia can remove these unwanted elements making the refined product taste cleaner and smoother.  The  distillation process has pretty much been the same for the last hundred years or so and after watching the video, I am surprised that...

The Gutmaster 8000

Behold The Gutmaster 8000! This a machine designed to eviscerate, decapitate and clean salmon. So, just how effective is this slice and dice contraption? It can fully process a salmon in less then two seconds, averaging out at about 30 salmon a min. The salmon get fed into a conveyor system where various blades make the necessary incisions. From there, suction is applied and the guts are removed. A series of brushes then clean the interior cavity and remove any left over bits. Finally, the fish is decapitated and exits...

The Norwegian Butter Crisis

Thanks to a new diet fad, butter has been flying off the shelves in Norway. According to Reuters, butter sales jumped 20% in October and 30% in November. Further, butter production has been slashed dramatically due to a wet summer which saw a decline in animal feed quality and thus a shot fall off 25 million liters of milk. …limited supplies and the shortage has led some pundits to suggest the world’s eighth-largest oil exporter offer some of its plentiful fuel supply in exchange for butter. Butter is currently trading... Read The Rest →
