Tag Archives: wonder food


I’ve been blogging for more than three years now and I’ve somehow neglected to write about bacon. I’ve written about Canadian bacon. I’ve written about bacon jerky. But this is the first post about real bacon. Real bacon is officially known as side bacon or streaky bacon, and it comes from pig belly meat. The USDA defines bacon as the cured belly of a swine carcass. Don’t let that definition dissuade you from trying bacon. It’s delicious. It’s a wonder food. It’s amazing by itself and it makes everything else better. Try it with eggs. Try it with lettuce and tomato. Try it wrapped around fried chicken. Turn a cheeseburger into a bacon cheeseburger. Take that Bloody Mary to another level. Bacon is a four billion dollar industry in the United States alone. Jews and vegetarians have no idea what they are missing out on. I don’t care what they say, eating bacon is totally kosher.

Sticking Your Phone in Rice

It was really hot the other day, so I went swimming with a couple of friends. One of my friends was being really meticulous about emptying his pockets before jumping into the pool. He took off his watch, his chain, he took out his cash, he removed his wallet, then he ran to the pool and did a cannonball. He came up a second later with a scowl on his face and his iPhone in his hand. Fortunately, other people realized what had happened instantly, and before you know it his phone was in a bag of rice. Sticking your phone in rice and leaving it overnight will typically get your phone working again. The rice absorbs the moisture and your phone should start working again once it’s dried out. It’s important not to test your phone out while it’s still wet because you can short circuit it, and then no amount of rice will be able to save your phone. Rice is a wonder food. It feeds the world and saves electronics. It does way more for humanity than I ever will.
