Thanksgiving’s coming up, and that’s not fun for anyone. You have to visit these people you didn’t even choose to be associated with, eat the driest bird, and hopefully not get into a fight with the people who raised and clothed you.
Wouldn’t it be great to get away to place where your cup is never empty.
Why not check out Abruzzo, Italy? Last month, the village installed a brand new wine fountain that flows with the red stuff that you crave 24/7. Yes, you read correctly, a fountain that pours red wine all day, everyday. It’s all you can drink brunch all the time. You can even check out the remains of Jesus’ disciple Thomas while there. Try not to cry.
The fountain is open now. Check it out.
So, let’s see: you can drink free wine, see some really old remains, and avoid a family argument? Seems like a no brainer.
Tune in for a knockout performance from Kevin Kline's Calvin Fischoeder. Real talk though: how about those ice skating moves from his brother Felix, who looks graceful as a freaking swan.
Anyone else in the mood for a glass of something strong and distilled now? Take life on the rocks with bourbon, bourbon, oh bourbon, bourbon.
Some Australian officials have begun clamoring for a limited ban on the national condiment Vegemite.
If you've ever tried the stuff, especially if you have an American palette, you may want the yeasty brown spread to be banned on its taste merits. But those officials have a different desire to get rid of the stuff, according to the BBC
Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion described the salty spread as a "precursor to misery".
He said it was being bought in bulk to make moonshine.
Brewer's yeast is a key ingredient in the spread and is used in the production of beer and ale.
In communities where alcohol is banned because of addiction problems, Mr Scullion said Vegemite sales should also be restricted.
It's not something that Prime Minister Tony Abbott is espousing, but it has many champions in the right-leaning government of Australia.
See, but, the thing is: it's not possible to make alcohol out of vegemite.
As they detail in this Gizmodo article, you can't remove the brewer's yeast from the Vegemite.
that the yeast in Vegemite is deactivated as it's processed. As my wife said yesterday when we were talking about the story, trying to extract brewer's yeast from Vegemite would be like trying to extract an egg from a cake.
So, if you want to get the weird condiment banned, you're going to have to use its taste as the platform.
Three months ago, Tom Mabe tried to scare his friend into shape by pranking him into thinking he'd been coma for 10 years as a result of a drunk driving accident. One of Mabe's viewers saw the prank, and decided that his own friend could use a wake up call.
