Everyone likes a good home-cooked meal. And making everything "from scratch" seems to be a popular thing to do, especially if you have entirely too much free time. If you're up to the challenge, here are just a few pointers to recipes that you might want to try someday. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    Why NOT make HFCS at home? At least you know exactly what you put into it....

    Anyone eating Jello is probably eating soylent cow green.

    How Jello is made.

    - Get all those bones from cows and chip them.
    - put it in a container and add sulfuric acid to dissolve the minerals and some other stuff and dry the collagen, to know when it is good push down a rod if it gets to the bottom all hard material is gone and it is ready for the next step.
    - Turn down the acidity by throwing some lime in it and

    Tada.

    Frutose is Toxic

    The reason you don't want to eat HFCS is because it can cause metabolic syndrome: obesity, heart disease & strokes, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and non-alcoholic fatty liver disease.
