It's very easy so no more excuses.

I'll admit it, the HDTV has been keeping me up too late. Last night I could not turn off Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern. It's such a great show and last night I learned all about cashews. I had no idea that cashews come from a fruit and that in Thailand, the juice of this fruit is used to make a special drink.

From Wikipedia:

What appears to be the fruit of the cashew tree is an oval or pear-shaped accessory fruit or false fruit that develops from the receptacle of the cashew flower. Called the cashew apple, better known in Central America as "marañón", it ripens into a yellow and/or red structure about 5–11 cm long. It is edible, and has a strong "sweet" smell and a sweet taste. The pulp of the cashew apple is very juicy, but the skin is fragile, making it unsuitable for transport. It is often used as a flavor in agua fresca.

Andrew Zimmern then went on to eat red ants and lizards. MMM...MM..MMMMM

While I'm on the topic of bizarre foods, do you own a bakery? If so, here's something you might not want to do:

Crazy scientists created a Big Bang machine!

The KFC secret recipe is going to be moved:

A security firm run by former New York City police detective Bo Dietl has been hired by KFC to move the fast food chain's secret "Original Recipe" of 11 herbs and spices, which has been not been moved from its safe in corporate headquarters for 68 years. The single sheet of notebook paper, yellowed by age, lays out the entire formula, and was written in pencil and signed by Colonel Harland Sanders in 1940.
