Two interesting items of note today:

1. Some may think that Twinkies have the longest shelf life of any food, but they are sadly mistaken (gosh, I used to love Twinkies when I was like 9, and I suspect I still would love them if I bought some. But I don’t eat them, and I will never buy them). Anyway, the food with the longest shelf life is honey. Honey, if stored properly, has the potential to last forever. And that’s a mighty long time. But I’m here to tell you that there’s something else…..the afterlife. A world of never-ending happiness, you can always see the sun: day…..or night. So when you call up that shrink in Beverly Hills, you know the one, always tellin’ you everything’s gonna be all right…..

2. Did you know that Einstein’s brain in kept in two mason jars? That’s right. The fella who did his autopsy keeps Einstein’s brains snugly entrenched in pickle jars. Beautiful. Apparantly, the dude’s name is Dr. Thomas Harvey and he is willing to lend out pieces of the brain for scientists to examine if the cause is right. How long before we see a piece on EBay, I wonder?
