bacon

Sometimes science is used for good. Sometimes science is used for evil. Depending on the depth of your love for bacon, it may be difficult to tell whether the Swine Genome Sequencing Consortium is Batman or Bane in this scenario: an international team of researchers has sequenced all of the DNA in a female pig and can now engineer tastier piggies. Of course, animal breeders have long bred all types of livestock for their version of the “ideal” animal; the main concern of this pig DNA project will create healthier pigs. But sciences are also saying it’s possible to toy with the tenderness and fat content of the pig’s meat, as well as the color. I, for one, never conceived that bacon could possibly be more yummy. So I’ll go out on a limb here and ask if these porcine geneticists could try and make eating bacon as healthy as, say, kale. You can do it. I have faith in you, science! [NPR]

As annoyed as it makes me to listen to someone talk for 15 minutes about the spicy 7-bean mixture they’ve got simmering on the stove, I try to be patient, because lord knows I’ve chili-bragged on numerous occasions, and you know what? Sometimes a chili brag is  totally warranted. For example, in the case of these 10 chili recipes, all of which look delicious enough to brag about for daaaayyyyys.

Chew On This 8-Foot Long Gummi Snake

It’s 27 pounds, 36,730 calories, $150 worth of pure gummi candy. The Party Python is now available for purchase Vat19. It comes in blue raspberry and green apple and red cherry and blue raspberry. Seriously, if it came in sour gummi, I would buy it for Amelia for her birthday and leave it in the office for her to snack on all year. But it’s regular gummi, so I’ll have to keep looking for her b-day present. [Buzzfeed]
