Smarter Every Day has found out a solution to a mystery that even a Nobel Prize in Physics like Richard Feynman couldn't solve: Why spaghetti never breaks in half, but in three or four parts. To find out he filmed the break at 250,000 frames per second—it's a fascinating answer to a question I never had.

I ordered L.A. Burdick's chocolate penguins to be delivered as an anonymous gift. When the recipient got their gift, they called L.A. Burdick to find out who sent the gift. L.A. Burdick immediately gave them my name. It was a disaster. When I contacted L.A. Burdick support about the mistake, they denied that it could have happened. When I said that it definitely did happen, they told me in rather blunt terms (matching my tone) that I should buzz off. Well, okay... I won't be ordering again. What a pointless negative experience.
