    Default A Great way to waste 1,000+ hours of your life...

    Bored?

    Try to find a bacon sandwich formula!

    I can't believe people would actually waste time, money, and resources to do that. =_=

    Yeah, we kick ass like that.

    Next time you're eating a BLT, think of the lads down at Leeds university who spent a thousand hours of their life just to make 5 minutes of yours just that little bit more tasty. Too bad it's only Danish people who'll get to taste the results.

    I bet this is by that same British Standards Institute that publishes multi-page specifications for things like making tea and mashing oranges. They actually won an IgNobel prize for one of those. (Article)

    Uryuu freaky, pale and geeky,

    Wow.... That was a waste of time and money. Can they find a way to solve world hunger instead?

    Already found the answer to that. It's called "Global Thermonuclear War."

    Ahahahahaha, the last IgNoble prize is bloody genius. And I knew it was better to grill bacon rather than fry it, fucking flatmates. They scorned my 'northern barbarian ways', but now, HA ! I say.

    My god, grill the bacon! Of course, that way it cooks in its own fat and any excess fat drips away, leaving a crispy texture!

    Update: Even though I don't have a propper grill (just an oven with a tray), its true, grilling bacon does indeed make crispier bacon (I literally just tested this out 5 minutes ago). Although it is slower.
