  • This Pizza Bikini Is 100% Edible

    06/29/2017 11:53:19 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 55 replies
    It’s called the Pizza-Kini and it’s exactly what it sounds like: A $10,000 bikini made out of pizza. Yes, you read that price correctly. The ingenious/abominable creation, depending on whom you ask, comes from New York’s Villa Pizza Kitchen. In honor of National Bikini Day, the restaurant took their love of pizza to whole new levels, teaming up with a food stylist named Jessie Bearden on the bathing suit. ... Bearden handcrafts each Pizza-Kini, which accounts for its hefty prize tag. The trimming on the edges of the suit, for instance, is made from hand braided pizza dough. “There is...
  • This Edible Supercapacitor Could Transform Ingestible Electronics

    05/30/2016 8:53:29 AM PDT · by BenLurkin · 12 replies
    M ost supercapacitors—electrical components that store energy—are made from aluminum, graphene or various polymers. But the materials list for the new ones being developed at Arizona State University (ASU) could be mistaken for a grocery receipt: cheddar cheese, eggs, gelatin, Gatorade. Researchers at ASU are using these ingredients to create edible supercapacitors. Foods like cheese and egg white, when placed in the right combinations, can conduct and store electricity. The resulting devices, once swallowed, could one day power medical devices in the stomach or intestinal tract. “We use food to function like electronics,” says Hanqing Jiang, a professor of mechanical...

    Colorado parents are being told to be on the lookout this Halloween for marijuana-laced candy, NBC News reported. The Facebook page of the Denver Police Department is warning that mass-produced candy can by sprayed with hash oil, and once the spray dries, there is no way to tell that the candy has been infused. The station reported that the Denver PD Facebook page features Patrick Johnson, owner of marijuana shop Urban Dispensary. In the film, Johnson urges parents to inspect any candy their children bring home after trick-or-treating on Halloween to make sure it hasn’t been tampered with..

    SOME of us may have tried it out of curiosity, others by accident after a few beers. And then there are those of us who have eaten dog food because our siblings may have forced us to. But food blogger Colin McQuistan had none of those excuses and simply decided to try the animal food just for the heck of it. And while pet food clearly warns on the label that it should not be eaten by humans, Mr McQuistan was determined to try it. The good news is he lived to tell the, er, tail. The Scotsman, who is...
  • Edible weeds

    02/14/2009 10:03:07 AM PST · by djf · 246 replies · 10,331+ views
    I have decided to start a thread focusing on edible weeds. Many of the common plants we see everyday are edible, and while most are not hugely palatable or nutritious, a few are truly very good. If you would like to post a recipe, please post recipes related to these plants only. As always, an extreme amount of caution is advised. It's probably true that 90 percent or so of plants are actually edible, there is a small percentage that if you eat them, you WON'T have to worry about eating again! Oleander comes to mind, it would take less...

    Edible insects provide food for thought at UN-organized meeting 19 February 2008 – Experts from around the world have gathered in Chiang Mai, Thailand, at a meeting organized by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) to discuss the human consumption of insects, some of which have as much protein as meat and fish. While the thought of eating bugs may turn some people off, it is very common in some parts of the world and even considered a delicacy. Beetles, ants, bees, grasshoppers and crickets are some of the most widely enjoyed of the over 1,400 insect species...

    LOS ANGELES — The Planned Parenthood Association says it's not too early to be thinking of that perfect Christmas gift idea. They will be offering the little beauties (pictured left) at their Los Angeles offices starting next month. It's all part of a new nationwide campaign to make condoms more fun. "They could even be used as finger puppets, as you can see," said a spokesman for Planned Parenthood. "We're trying to get people away from thinking of the condom as strictly a 'backdoor' business." The spokesman said that Jewish versions are still in the testing phase. "Both the Star...
