It's a slow day today with no real news and lots of boring work waiting to get done, so I have a perfect excuse to post random stuff that wouldn't get here otherwise.
Remember the magic bowl sold on eBay last month for $6,700? When someone poured soup into it, the bowl would spell different things to different people, and the seller claimed the bowl even had predicted the outcome of the 2004 elections. Someone should've reverse-engineered the bowl to see how it works, and maybe we would have a new "foodvertising" medium. Imagine sitting at a lunch and having your soup spelling contextually appropriate slogans back at you, like "Think outside the bun", or "Got milk?" or "Beanz meanz Heinz". How cool would that be?
