Japanese artist Motoi Yamamoto's creative recipe calls for a little more than a pinch of salt. And in this case, it seems that spilled salt is a good omen: http://bit.ly/1RZvcXx

Microscale Rockets

Each one of these microscopic cylindrical tubes is roughly 10 microns in length and chemically propelled like a space-faring rocket. They draw in fuel from the surrounding environment, which reacts with the catalysts coating the interior to produce gases (oxygen). These resulting gases bubble out the rear of the microrocket, creating thrust capable of propelling the tubes at more than 1000 body-lengths/second.

Researchers have already demonstrated the ability to haul cargo with these tiny rockets and hope to one day use them to precisely deliver drugs and isolate cancer cells.

The Squirting Cucumber

Ecballium elaterium, also known as the Squirting Cucumber, is a flowering plant native to Europe and northern Africa. Its name stems from its unique method of violently releasing seeds when ripe via a stream of liquid. The internal pressure causes the fruit to disconnect from the main plant and launches the seeds outwards. The plant and its fruit are both poisonous and was considered to be an abortifacient in the ancient world.

I put in the number for my item and it cannot be found. I will let the IRS know you lost my package. Maybe USPS should put a portable label printer in the vehicle's, so the postal carriers can print out the correct number to put on those cards that are left when no one is home.

The Speculoos waffles are so good, but the aroma of deliciousness fills the air when they are cooking. The cold beverage Grenadine is made with regular water. Not seltzer water. Which is good for people like me with asthma. The drink is the size of a small cup.
