I took a bit of a break over the weekend; I wasn’t entertained so much by the internets. I did make cupcakes out of Elvis Presley’s favorite pound cake recipe; for cupcakes, preheat the oven and shorten the baking time to about 25 minutes. Then I made a lavender icing, with a bit too much lavender, and it seemed to turn out OK. (My official tasters liked it, anyway.)
Things I found:
- Probably the best explanation of the Large Hadron Collider’s function and purpose that I’ve seen, via Digg.
- I love these Easy Dome prefab dome houses from someplace in Scandanavia, I think. (via Inhabitat)
- For today’s video, a freestyle rap battle, translated into the Queen’s English. I can’t embed, so you have to click through. (via Digg)
With luck, more tomorrow!
