This Edible “Second Skin” Extends Fruits And Vegetables Shelf Life

Thanks to Mother Nature’s doing and human’s propensity to waste, many perishable fruits and vegetables have gone to waste. Part of the ‘gone to waste’ is often the result of nature’s doing and it doesn’t help that we, humans, just have to have more which we sometimes can’t finish.

Not For Hygiene Freaks: Hotel In China Turns Hot Spring Into A Human Hot Pot

Would you eat while you are in a pool, a hot tub, or hot spring? Personally, I would not. Eating while in any of the aforementioned water body is, to me, like peeing inside a pool. It’s gross and unhygienic. But I guess that’s just me because, First World Hotel in Hangzhou in Zhejiang province, China, seems nonchalant about it. The hotel had, in anticipation of Lunar New Year, turned one of its hot spring pools into a human ‘hot pot’ of sort that would probably put a smile on Hannibal Lecter’s face – if the fictional cannibalistic psychopath love hot pot.

You Don’t Pet Popeyes’ Emotional Support Chickens, You Eat ’Em

If you weren’t in the U.S., emotional support animals are a thing when flying. Also known as ESA, emotional support animal is a companion animal (read: pet) that supposedly provides the person it accompany some kind of benefit. It is not new, but flying with it is. Needless to say, this flying with ESA has been abused and caused quite a bit of stir last year. Continue reading You Don’t Pet Popeyes’ Emotional Support Chickens, You Eat ’Em
