Beautiful Elektra Mini Verticale and Micro Casa a Leva Espresso Machines

These Elektra espresso makers are actually miniature versions of grander machines used in Europe. They're far from the most practical units for the home, with no direct water line, a low capacity storage container, and hard-to-clean drip plates, but they are awful big and shiny. Why, one could almost call them steampunk.

Here's footage from a waiter-less German restaurant where meals descend a roller-coaster-like rail system encased in table-ready dining modules.



I hate to say it, but this is almost "steampunk" in its flaunted intricacy.

Don't look now, but . . .

George Dvorksy -- with whom I disagree on many points related to technology and extraterrestrial intelligence -- takes aim at meat-eaters. And damned if I don't agree with him.

Do I think serial carnivores are "bad people"? Certainly not. But I'd challenge any of them to defend meat consumption on rational grounds. As I blogged a while back, the meat industry's environmental impact alone more than justifies ditching our collective craving for burgers and steaks (especially as it becomes increasingly evident that the attendant health hazards are casually ignored).

We hear a great deal about minimizing our ecological footprint. For my money, going vegetarian is the easiest way to make a difference. And you might discover a wealth of new recipes in the process.

Caffeinated doughnuts to roll out

Dr. Robert Bohannon of Environostics is the man behind the caffeine-laced doughnuts, which he has dubbed Buzz Donuts. His manufacturing process allows the caffeine to be absorbed in the intestine, thus eliminating any off tastes.


Two words: "Nobel Prize."

Mmmm! Squirming octopus tentacles for dinner!



H.P. Lovecraft would have loved this.
