Your one-stop shop for half baked ideas


Hey, hey…check it out. I ran across this while looking up the refractive index of vinegar (yes, I had to look it up. Shut up). It’s the Halfbakery “a discussion forum for poorly thought-out original ideas for inventions.”

Worth a morning browse. My favorite so far: cream cheese marketed in ring shape, so you just slap it on your bagel. I don’t know why I like that, though. I don’t like my bagels cut in half longitudinally. I like to eat them toroidally, dabbing cream cheese on the gnawed ends.

Why am I telling you this?

A quibble


Saying “weather is not climate” or “the plural of anecdote is not data” is like saying “the plural of tree is not forest.”

Well, it might be. How many trees we talking about?
