However, a little bit of cognitive dissonance set in after reading this sentence “And a 12 oz serving of Guinness — often referred to as a meal in a glass for good reason — clocks in at an eye-opening 678 calories.”

Sometimes frost on the *inside* surface of the car’s windows is a fact of life here at the primary testing facility. The defroster grid in the back window, while typically used to melt frost, the conditions were such that they became nucleation sites for the frost on the inside surface instead!
Consensus online is that this problem is related to excess moisture in the cabin, which considering our area has had somewhere between 157.5 – 226 ” this season (70″ difference? yup, that bugs me), tracked in snow and wet carpets is a likely culprit.
We have investigated sidecars in several ways (different orange liquors, lemon vs ReaLemon, the impact of aging lemon juice), but this time we wanted to compare more types of lemon juices side by side.
We’ve previous subjected beef to 8 (sometimes tortuous) hours in a slow cooker; but what happens after 8 hours via a temperature controlled, sous-vide method?

You might be a scientist when…
Peanut Butter Fudge Day? That sounds like an excuse for a taste test….
When consuming iced beverages, it casually seemed that ice would disappear at different rates depending on the beverage. What happens when we actually test this?
