DailyDirt: How To Really Cook

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Chemistry labs are usually pictured as a clean room environment with an array of colorful liquids sitting in weird glass containers -- or sometimes as an RV racing through a desert with some crazy guy in a gas mask and dead drug dealers sliding around on the floor (a la Breaking Bad). But home kitchens are also a type of chemistry lab, and food science is getting more advanced as people with entirely too much free time (ahem, Nathan Myhrvold...) experiment with novel cooking techniques. Here are just a few links for budding home master chefs. If you'd like to read more awesome and interesting stuff, check out this unrelated (but not entirely random!) Techdirt post via StumbleUpon.

    I think it's safe to say we can survive without an alcohol study or two.
    We should have cures for all that shit, but we don't because of greedy pharmaceutical companies locking down the technology to do so.

    It's far more profitable to treat rather than cure.

    Cure - Each person treated will not have to pay for "insert problem & medication" ever again.

    Treat - A lifetime paycheck and depending on the illness possibly medications they cannot live without. Stop treatment and die equals one hard pill to swallow. People will give up everything to get a few more days/months/years.

    My aunt died of cancer in the 90's, but not before her and her husband spent over 2.5 million dollars fighting it with prescriptions that ran over 30 grand per month.. They went bankrupt and when they could not afford the treatment they were dropped faster than the time it takes the NSA to violate your privacy.
