|
http://bit.ly/1NHFImY

Just how posh can a burger get? As it turns out, very posh indeed. The one pictured below costs $175 but this one is only #11 in the most expensive rankings..the #1 is a big surprise one at $300,000! But not sure I'd eat one of those though - it doesn't exactly look like it's worth that kind of money..

Richard Nouveau Burger - $175 : You can pick up one of these bad boys from the Wall Street Burger Shoppe in NYC. It has 10 ounces of Kobe beef, foie gras, black truffles, Gruyere, and it's topped off with gold flakes.

Now, while I know how normal babies are made, I'm not sure how or what these ones are made out of. It looks like these are made for sale but I can't help feeling that this is all a bit creepy..maybe I should have saved this one for the Hallowe'en post \o/

After last night's post I decided to look a bit more into bacteria experiments and found the above page. It explains how to make your own agar petri dishes and then how to grow your own bacteria colonies in them! I've got to give this a try, this is right up my street :-)

The microbes on a handprint of an 8 year old after playing outside.

"We all know our bodies are home to countless millions of bacteria and microorganisms, but without seeing them with our bare eyes it's almost impossible to comprehend."

However it goes on to say that most of these are harmless and some actually beneficial to our immune systems..

Worst 16 Corporate Logos Ever

|
http://bit.ly/1XtJFjO

"Companies spend millions of dollars on trying to come up with the perfect logo. They hire all the best creative thinkers they can find, sit in a room and bounce ideas at each other for hours before they even think of narrowing their choice down to their top 10 favorites. Then they continue to break apart the logo, change it up, and sometimes throw it away altogether until they get the absolute most perfect logo to represent their company and their brand. 

So it's a real wonder when they go through all of that work, money and time to come up with some real failures. You'll see what I mean:"

406 Quotes About the Meaning of Life

|
http://www.goodreads.com/quotes/tag/meaning-of-life

I actually use this website to keep track of what books I have already read but this article is a special feature and well worth a browse..

""In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in His cosmic loneliness.

And God said, "Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done." And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man sat up, looked around, and spoke. Man blinked. "What is the purpose of all this?" he asked politely.

"Everything must have a purpose?" asked God.

"Certainly," said man.

"Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this," said God.

And He went away.""
