I hadn't realized that Gallium could do this. Basically the gallium is insinuating itself into the metal lattice of the other metal, in this case aluminum, which weakens it and makes it brittle. What I find interesting is how far the gallium diffuses; we're not used to thinking of metals as porous conductors of fluids.

Aluminum gallium arsenide is a semiconductor, incidentally.

Homemade no-bake protein bars
The base ingredients are: 
4.5 cups of uncooked oatmeal [500g or a pound]
12oz of peanut butter [a small jar]
14oz of coconut milk [400ml or one can]
4 scoops of whey vanilla protein powder [200cc or 100g]

Combine the ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Put some foil or baking paper in, transfer the dough in flattening it nicely. Place the dish into the fridge and keep it there minimum 4-5 hours or overnight. 

Cut it into 16 bars or cut pieces off as you need them and as much as you need all week long. Keep it cool at all times, since it’s a no-bake it will eventually soften up… hopefully not inside your pocket! If you take it with you to work I suggest you put it in the fridge there before it melts although this particular recipe is pretty consistent. 

~ 300 calories each
15g of protein per bar

I personally have them instead of breakfast and it's my favourite snack on a busy day. One bar will keep you going for a really long time unlike lets say a bowl of oatmeal or a peanut butter sandwich. It tastes like a treat but it gives you enough energy to go about your day and then have a pretty tough training session. 

If you have reservations about protein powders (they are supplements after all) try making these without it adding less coconut milk.

This is amazing!
LEGO Star Destroyer Destroyed By LEGO Kraken!

So LEGO makes an impressively large model of the Star Destroyer from Star Wars. But like the original, it's a little on the... dull grey side.

Iain Heath came up with a way to spice things up.

Why not have your LEGO Star Destroyer attacked and torn appart by a giant LEGO space Kraken... or KR-KN since this is Star Wars?

Works for me!
