Text Misadventure by defective yeti

Mathew Baldwin, better known as defective yeti, has written a hilarious post of the past six years of President George Bush’s career as a Zork-style text adventure. No matter what youre political bent, if you loved Zork half as much as I did, you’re going to be rolling on the floor reading it (via BoingBoing).

Wilbur Scoville – Father of Hot

In 1912, Wilbur Scoville published a means of measuring the hotness of a chili pepper (the Scoville Scale) in "The Journal of the American Pharmacists Association." I was watching a cool episode of Alton Brown‘s Good Eats on chile peppers last night and thought that my pharmacist friends, especially those who are Alton Brown fans, would enjoy that fact. Scoville was, by all accounts, a brilliant chemist with a knack for compounding.
