Pamela Low: Dead

1. Pamela Low: Dead
After working as a flavorologist on such products as Almond Joy and Mounds, Pamela Low made her mark on the American food industry and on pop culture when, remembering a rice, butter and brown sugar mixture her grandmother made as a child, she invented the flavor the world would come to know as Cap'n Crunch. I don't think she invented vastly more delicious Crunch Berry, though.

MIT for Free

2. MIT for Free
Want to get some college smarts without paying for them? Want to have nothing to show for it? The Massachusetts Institute of Technology is offering courses in 35 areas of study, from Aeronautics and Astronautics to Writing and Humanistic Studies, all free for the taking for the benefit of "educators, students, and self-learners around the world."

What if I Said

3. What If I Said "Douchebags?"
Two cool-guys play a song...on one single the same time. I know it sounds lame, and it sounds even lamer when you hear that the song that they play is the theme to Beverly Hills 90210, and that the cool-guys are likely frat guys (one of them with his hat on backwards,) and that they are overly cocky about their accomplishment, but it is actually kind of cool.


4. Blueprint
How much time can you waste moving around little ramp, pipes and conveyor belts to get a ball to hit a target. If you play the levels in order, I'm going to predict that you get bored and quit before reaching the second row. That's what I did.


Tomorrow, Saturday, June 9th, is World Wide Knit in Public Day. It looks like gatherings of knitters have been organized in pretty much all 50 states as well as many countries across the world. Of course, if you want to , you could just knit while waiting for the bus or whatever. You don't have to attend one of these celebrations. As for me, I haven't even been able to figure out how to crochet properly.
